First night in Delray and we chose City Oyster; amazing choice. We started with Oysters, amazingly fresh, as good as from New England and Canada. Next we had a main entree; Fish & Chips, Curry Scallops, Shrimp and Tuna and King Crab Legs; everyone was very happy with their choice. The service was spot on! I will return for another fine meal here!

The food was excellent and we ordered a lot... Started with variety of oysters, chilled and super tasty. Lobster rolls, 2 huge grilled rolls with real chunks of lobster, didn't even need the side of french fries. Awesome hamachi with cucumber, orange, and other flavors- very light, refreshing. Large piece of grilled snapper, cooked perfectly and fresh sushi rolls and gyoza.
Downside...crazy crowded Saturday night, packed and super loud bar crowd. Was seated at a crappy table near the wait staff and family with 2 infants who left most of their meal on the floor.
Maybe try a week night.

This restaurant is not worth the experience. Extremely noisy and we could barely hear each other. The food was ok but not what was expected for those prices. Service was horrible. Had to wait 1 hour to get our drinks another hour to get our food and then they brought out the wrong order, so some of us ate while others watched. Took half an hour for them to correct the orders.
Would not recommend this place.

Tried this great one and was not disappointed. The place was busy but we were seated right on time and with a request to sit in their round booths. The menu was great and we had the best waitress ever!! Started with the mussels that were delish. Hubby had the tuna and I had Hong Kong snapper both were so yummy! Will go back again had a great evening!

Wonderful atmosphere restaurant, was highly recommended by locals.
We were 7 in our group and all of us were very pleased with our dishes
I hand the Mahi on a bed of polenta and steamed veggies.
Everything was excellent!
I will definitely come back again
