This place is always crowded... so plan ahead or come early!
We love the oyster Rockefeller and lobster roll.

Mateo is an awesome waiter!

We look forward to having dinner at City Oyster when visiting Delray Beach. The last time we were in Delray with our family we went back a second time the same week. This was just a long weekend visit so we only got enjoy 3 restaurants for dinner.
I had made a reservation several weeks ahead but I should have started well before that. This is a very popular restaurant. It was very crowded and loud on a Friday evening with people standing in line waiting for a table well into the evening.
We had a glass of wine at the bar and the staff was very friendly even though they were being run ragged.
I started with the oysters (2 blue point, 2Cotuit, and 2 Wellfleet) which were great with the exception of one that was very small.
We both had the Sea Bass. They were very large portions, very tender with a nice sauce. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly as well.

We visit this restaurant whenever we are in Ft. Lauderdale and we have never been disappointed. Made a reservation since there were six of us. Were taken on time and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and drinks.

While we visit Delray during the holidays and expect Atlantic Avenue to be crowded, this year proved to be an experience. You can barely walk into City Oyster on any given evening. And don't expect to get in without a reservation. Our reservation was honored on time and while the food was as good as always, the tables are close together and the noise level is out of control.

This afternoon we went to City Oyster for lunch. The food was less than delicious....the crab cake was fishy, the salad was soggy and the fish and chips was dry and tasteless. The duty manager did apologize and got us some fried calamari....it too had no flavor!!! Such a disappointing day out
