We went twice in two days for brunch. Indoor and outdoor seating were very comfortable. Oysters are decent but I think the numerous seafood dishes are better. Quality of the seafood was extremely fresh. Would go again!

This restaurant is absolutely amazing! All the drinks and food are phenomenal, no matter what you get it will be great! The atmosphere of the restaurant was beautiful, and intimate. We celebrated my husband’s birthday and we were very pleased with everything. The staff were very attentive, friendly and gave us great recommendations. We will definitely be coming back in the future. Make sure to make your reservations and enjoy an unforgettable meal!

Amazing staff, amazing food experience. The freshest seafood. They never disappoint. Their selection of oysters is a must try. Their snapper tartare and mussels are two of my favorites. Their drinks are mixed to perfection. Don’t skip dessert…nice selection. They do it right!

Had a pleasant experience sitting at the bar during happy hour on a Wednesday. I was a party of 1 so the bartender did a great job recommending smaller dishes so I could try a few different things off the menu vs. ordering 1 large entree.The oysters are fresh, and they do have some of them on the happy hour menu too- very tasty! I also tried the snapper tartare, which was pretty good for an appetizer to split with a few different folks. The sauce the snapper was in was a bit too tangy for my liking, as a party of 1. The fried cauliflower was delicious- will look to order a fish entree on my next visit, paired with a side of that cauliflower.Highlight of the meal, they have the ingredients to make a Vesper martini- and the bartender knew what it was! (Look it up, its very tasty!)

The River Oyster bar is definitely a place to check out! Our service was nothing short of amazing & accommodating for specific dietary needs. We absolutely loved the gazpacho soup and grilled octopus appetizers! Our entrees were amazing as well. We had the gnocchi & seared mahi mahi. Would definitely recommend visiting for great ambiance, food & service! The only complaint would be that google maps does not have the correct location, therefore it was a bit difficult when trying to locate this restaurant.

So good, you almost don’t want to leave a review and just keep it to yourself! Everything, from the service, ambiance, prices, wine list and most importantly, the food – is so damn good, you just have to visit this spot for a true seafood experience. Oysters on the half shell for happy hour – such a great deal.Sharing a few photos from our dinner on Dec 23, 2021

River Oyster is the token spot for bivalve-loving people thanks to an unbeatable half-priced-oyster happy hour from 4:30pm to 7pm. During regular hours, the menu covers the full seafood spectrum, from fresh and local to flown-in and wonderful, like Florida’s own yellowtail or salmon that came all the way from New Zealand. Whether it’s a simple crab cake or an elaborate shellfish platter stacked with shrimp, lobster and everything else, River Oyster always delivers.


This amazing restaurant invites you to indulge your palate's cravings with every bite. Their fresh ingredients are elevated to be exquisitely refined in every way.


It is headed by Bravo’s Top Chef Season 13’s Winner, Chef Jeremy Ford. When the show was filmed, he was Jean-Georges Vongerichten's right-hand man at the Matador Room in Miami Beach. A Florida native, the 32-year-old chef also studied under Ludo Lefebvre in Los Angeles. He has been devoted to cooking since he met his maternal grandmother at the age of 14.
