There were many fish selections. The raw oysters and clams were super fresh. The cooked fish was cooked to perfection. We sat outside, which was beautiful, but our table was on a definitive slant.

Great Seafood Restaurant on the main street of Del Ray Beach. The dragon sushi was awesome hand crafted by the Sushi Chef on site. Owned by the same group as City Tavern on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale, this is a wonderful dining spot to meet friends in Del Ray. The menu has a dining option for everyone! Love the big booths to sit and look out for people watching.

We were pretty disappointed overall. We’ve been here several times but this time we were celebrating our engagement with my parents. I put that in my reservation notes - no one ever mentioned it or congratulated us until we told the server. The manager wasn’t friendly at all- she didn’t introduce herself or really seem to care when our dry aged steak came out overdone. They had a new one made- but didn’t do anything to really make up for it which was frustrating since we were all done eating by the time his new steak came out. Our sever Steven was nice, but again the whole experience was just really disappointing.

Requested outside table. 2 tables were available while we waited and we were not seated at outside table. 1 reason a group ahead of us - and understood they were waiting before us. 2nd reason Group that got the table came after us and hostess just shrugged her shoulders. Extremely noisy where we sat could not hear a thing

Food special request could only be accommodated by charging for 2 full meals. Our waitstaff said chef doesn’t accommodate request made.

After reading the write up in the Boca mag at the hotel I was psyched for incredible food. The food was mediocre at best. Everything tasted ok, but nothing I would say really stood out. Would not bother going back- not at all what I expected from a restaurant specializing in sushi. Price moderate. I would rather pay double and get really good food. I would recommend skipping this one.

This was my second visit. The first time I thought the food was mediocre and the service was lacking. We decided to try again, but alas my first impression was correct. Nothing horrible...but at those prices the food should be better than mediocre. Outdoor dining table was pitched dramatically and things kept sliding off the table. Not what I expect from a place with $30+ entrees. I guess I’m in the minority because the place is always packed.

Against a background of an extremely loud bar crowd, four of us enjoyed our dinner at City Oyster and Sushi Bar. Tuna carpaccio appetizer would have been easier to eat if served sliced, but it was fresh and tasty. Our different IPAs were all cold and flavorful. We liked kale salad. Entrees of Hong Kong style mahi mahi and of snapper were well seasoned. Local yellow snapper was very good. Rare tuna was a little sinewy but otherwise good. Our server, Linda, remembered us from a previous dinner and was extremely pleasant and professional. We remembered that my husband liked wasabi with tuna carpaccio and brought it without our asking!

Service was horrible. There must have been 4-5 major crashes, plates/glasses breaking. Our server dropped a glass on our table, it broke in a million pieces, then tipped over a glass and a bottle of beer. As she was trying to clean it up, it dripped all over me. Total disaster and we got NOTHING for it. Drink service was soooo slow and in general, the service was slow. Not very attentive server. It's too bad cause this place was recommended to me but I will NOT recommend it to anyone else!!

Sunday afternoon packed and service was so slow. Everyone’s food was pretty good, but mine. I asked for tacos with the shell and I got three small pieces of fish! None of the extras that accompanied the tacos. Disappointed for sure.

Great seafood and sushi right on popular Atlantic Avenue. Although it was crowded on Saturday night we were able to be seated on time and the food was prepared quickly. It does get pretty loud, but it is a good restaurant with good service.

This was not the first time I had dined at this restaurant but not as enjoyable as the previous.
The noise level is so high even being at an outdoor table made it difficult to talk. The service was just ok as the servers seemed frazzled by the crowd.
Food is very good. However a request for gluten free veggies to go with fish dip was met with confusion and eventually told kitchen wouldn’t accommodate in spite of offer to pay extra for the cost.
Fish dip is excellent, drinks very good, Crudo delicious and sushi, oysters and salmon alll fresh and well prepared.

It’s VERY VERY loud inside Thur-Saturday nights, so be aware of that before booking (owners, you should do something acoustically about this). Love the varied, nice menu especially when going w a group cuz there’s something for everyone!

Although noise level was quite loud and there is a dangerous step up to the main dining area , the food and service were outstanding. Our waiter, Dave , was very considerate about waiting for our OK to place the entree order. I would have no issue going to sit at the bar on my own for dinner or lunch.

we love this place. Freshest oysters we’ve found and we have eaten at a lot of places. Professional staff through and through. One of the best gem wedge salads ever. What a great filet mignon deal, comes with perfectly cooked asparagus (not easy to do) and mashed potatoes. It’s nice they include the veggies and don’t force you to order as a side. I almost always get the pan sautéed snapper—-what do they do to this fish to make it taste soooo good??? Great drink happy hour, decently priced wine list if you get it by the bottle. The only thing that would make this better is if it were on the water.

And the ambiance was amazing as well..we love sitting close to the outside dining and people watch! Plus the weather was gorgeous so that’s always a plus!!

Food was good but not for the price. Service was great. When booking on open table they asked if there was an occasion. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. The restaurant didn’t even acknowledge it. No need to ask then.
