My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on Monday evening. I had the salmon which was delicious and Marty really enjoyed one of the fish specials. Our server was delightful, great personalty and very professional at the same time.
Our open table reservation was honored and we were seated upon arrival.
I look forward to coming back soon.
Thank you City Oyster for a lovely evening!

It was too noisy inside so we sat outside and my chair was on a tilt so that was annoying none of that mattered. The food was incredible. I had the grouper Amatraciano. It was unbelievable. Also had the giant raw bar tower. Everybody’s meal was perfect. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time.

Truly excellent food. We were blown away. Server was personable and knowledgeable about the food. He helped in advising what oysters to choose. The location is great for feeling like you're in the heart of the action but at an enjoyable distance.

Good place to go. Our waitress was on point, couldn’t be happier with the service. Found the food to be pretty good (my blackened mahi mahi was lacking flavor though).

I may go back and try other dishes. One good part, they offered a discount on a certain bottles of wine the night I was there.

We used to love this restaurant, but I recently had dinner here with two other people, me being the only woman. After the server took our drink order, he referred to me as “sweetie, “ which was quite rude. Since I didn’t want to ruin our dinner, I didn’t say anything. The two men with me felt the same way. The noise level is always horrible, but we haven’t let that stand in the way since the food has been great. But, this time it wasn’t, it was so so. And, for the prices, and reputation, it should always be great!!! I’ve decided that it’s time to move on, and find a new sea food restaurant!

While we always choose outside, Saturday night was quite warm, and our fan could not be put on high - although they did try. Restaurant needs to assure that all fans are working perfectly, especially in these warm months.

The consistency of the delicious food and location in Downtown Delray make this restaurant really good...but what makes the restaurant GREAT is Mateo, the best server ever. We haven’t been there in about 2-3 months but Mateo remembered exactly what we loved. He came up to us and hugged us and said “I’ll get you 2 Arnold Palmers and should I put in an order of a dozen Blue Points (oysters)? He remembered that’s our favorite! He is genuine and funny and such a great sever that he makes, in my opinion City Oyster the BEST restaurant in Delray.
When you go request Mateo and you’ll see what I mean! Oh, and I highly recommend the Delray Beach Roll. A California roll topped with mango, avocado, shrimp and chunks of tender lobster. Yum!!

The food at City O is always consistent and some of the best on the ave. For being a seafood focused restaurant, they have the best NY Strip on the ave. Always our go to place for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

We went to City Oyster for my son and daughter in-laws Anniversary.
When we arrived we were able to sit outside which was great as we had 3 children under 10.
The service was great. The food was delicious.
My only complaint was the price for oysters. $3 each.
We ordered them and they were good, however this is more than I have ever had to pay.
We dine at City Oyster frequently and it is always great.

Had another wonderful dining experience at one of my favorite restaurants with friends. Seat immediately upon arrival; our waitress was excellent! She was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. Our drinks and food arrived quickly; the drinks were excellent & the food amazing, as always. We ate outside since the noise inside was deafening.

City Oyster is always reliably wonderful. The noise level is a bit high, so forget about intimate conversations. That’s not going to happen. Anything you order on the menu is absolutely delicious. The huckleberry lemonade is a special treat, and so are the wait staff. Can’t be beat. Our server even made it his business to learn everybody’s name at our table, and there were six of us. We love City Oyster!

We've dined at the City Oyster in Delray Beach twice this month. What an absolute treat!
On July 4th our server, Paulina, helped to make our evening even more special. A few weeks later we were thrilled to have Ashley as our server. On both occasions we ordered the mussels appetizer with a wine and shallot broth. Just heavenly! Our entree's on both occasions (Mahi Mahi, Shrimp and pasta special, sushi, and seared tuna) were absolutely delicious. City Oyster never disappoints!

Consistent as usual! I really enjoy going here. It is my "go to" in Delray Beach. I know I can always get something healthy. I ate outside. It is very noisy inside due to the hoppin' bar scene.

I don’t know whether it was the service or the kitchen but it took a long time for our food. This is off season and it wasn’t very busy when we ordered. Food was good and it is one of our go to’s.
