They discount the oysters during happy hour, had a dozen last night, they were great. I bit of an older crowd during the week, which is fine. Excellent bar staff and great wine selection. Very nice inside also.

We always have a great time and enjoy delicious food at City Oyster. Great Happy Hour too. Had a very nice anniversary dinner there. The sushi is always fresh and flavorful and choices of entrees are both varied and interesting as well as being delicious.

We really enjoyed this place and although noisy think all the places in that part of town are. Just bustling and busy. The oysters and the king crab were both delicious and very fresh. My husband had sushi rolls which were also very good. Would definitely go back.

City Oyster has been one of Delray's most popular restaurants for years. It is a great place for a business lunch. Its always fun to try to get a table outside and do some people watching as well. Their Mediterranean salad is great and plenty large enough to share.

I always make sure to stop at City Oyster and Sushi Bar when I am in Delray. The food is fresh, high-quality, and delicious. On our last trip, we were seated inside, but the doors were open so we also had a cool breeze blowing in from the ocean. Our server was attentive and thorough, making sure we had enough... More

We had a great brunch here on a Sunday. All food was very good. Service was also friendly and attentive. Coffee was nothing special, though.

It was a great evening as we did try oysters, prime rib and some sea food over rice. It has a style and the heavenly taste. Recommended though pricy.

The tables from this sun drenched restaurant spilled onto the sidewalk and were filled with lunch diners. And for good reason. The food is quite good! My blackened fish tacos were the best ever. Though they dripped with more juices than I would have liked, the flavor was unbeatable. Nicely infused with cilantro and accompanied by a fresh salsa and... More
