My Go-to Choice
Always a hit! Once again, the wait staff and kitchen did not disappoint. Everything was fantastic! This location is the best of those we've tried. Lucky for us, it's only about seven minutes from our house - So it's become our neighborhood gem. Whether you going for dinner or a few apps, it's perfect. If you have diners that aren't fond of fish ... no worries, there are options from the land as well. Frankly, we love their fish dishes best, but that doesn't mean we won't do a steak sometimes. And if there are any parts of a dish you may not like they can sub one dishes sauce for another or do other ways to accommodate.

We arrived a bit early and sat in the bar until our reservation time. The cocktails were very good. While the bartenders were very good, they did get a bit focused on other patrons so we waited a bit to place our order. When we moved into the restaurant, we thought the décor was very nice, warm and inviting. Loved the open kitchen line concept too. Our waiter (I think his name was Nicholas and he'd recently transferred from the Pasadena store) was simply put, AWESOME. Service was really great as he clearly knew every detail about the food. The plates were presently and were works of art. We would not hesitate to recommend Roy's to our friends and would definitely visit again when we are in Anaheim. Don't miss it.

Roy's has always been one of my favorite restaurants! Reason for dining was for the Filet Mignon and Lobster Tail promotion. Food as ALWAYS, is EXCELLENT!
I would have to say Roy's in Anaheim has THE BEST staff ever! Staff was very friendly, especially our waiter Kevin? Chef, Jason, was an excellent Chef and manager that evening, (can't remember name), was just as excellent! It is no wonder why the staff is so friendly and excellent at this particular Roy's because every got along very well and made my dining experience one of the best!

The sashimi platter had a nice presentation with a few rolled with roe. A very nice treat and delicious. The staff is exceptional! Will definately try Roy's again. Noise level in bar area somewhat distracting.

Took my wife to Roy's for
Took my wife to Roy's for "date night". We enjoyed our experience, although it was obvious that my wife's entree had sat under the heat lamp for lo her than it should have. When we received the bill, we noticed that they had forgotten to charge us for one of the entrees so we brought it up to the server. No thanks, he just took the bill and added the missing item.

We dined at Roy's after a girl friend had talked about it a girls night out. My husband's boss was in town and we thought it would be a great opportunity to try a new place. The food was divine. My husband had the Prix Fixe Menu and from the appetizer to the desert it was all so yummy! I had the trio plate with three different types I fish. It was heaven on a plate!

I would've this Roy's location
I would've this Roy's location 5-stars across the board, except for two things. Noise level was such that having a conversation with my friend (sitting right next to me) was difficult. Second, while our server was excellent, the busboys were less so. One guy kept asking to take our plates away, even though we told him yes or no. Other times he'd ask, then walk away as if he hadn't heard our answer, only to come back a few seconds later to take the plates without asking. Quite annoying. I am very familiar with Roy Yamaguchi's training program for his managers and staff, so I was disappointed the busboys at this location were not better trained. Regardless, the food was solid (as expected) and you really can't go wrong eating here.

Only 1 hour parking validation? Give me a break while I'm spending that kind of change to dine at Roy's

We had a wonderful dinner of sushi and sashimi with good conversation and excellent suggestions by our server! I will go again.

Fabulous Date Night Spot
Roy's is one of my favorite restaurants! Delicious food, amazing service, and their signature Hawaiian Martini is to die for! I highly recommend this restaurant for date nights and special occasions.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Roys to celebrate our 30th. The staff, very attentive and friendly. The food was good. Only negative is the 5 spice flat iron steak, which by the way very lean, tender, had spices of cloves, anise, allspice type seasoning. My husband found the spice off putting, that being said he is not a fan of a lot of cloves. Perhaps if the menu would state the spices that is on the steak it would be helpful. We started with Calamari which is always good. I had the baramundi and that was wonderful as well. Overall very good,

Wonderful Birthday Dinner
I took my husband here for his birthday last Saturday and we had such a wonderful time. The staff was so friendly and put a special birthday scroll inside of his menu, along with a special birthday chocolate hazelnut dessert and photo op at the end of dinner. The Hawaiian Ahi Poke appetizer with tempura chips was outstanding, as were the crab and bleu cheese encrusted barramundi and Roy's Trio entrees. We also tried the molten lava and pineapple upside-down cakes - both of which tasted great. Roy's Anaheim really went out of their way to make it a special evening and it was one of the best dinners we've had. We highly recommend it.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Server was horrible. He didn't listen and he kept forgetting and never checked back. He seemed lazy and careless. I own a restaurant and I would never hire someone like him.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
very good indeed
We had a great meal with the swordfish dish in blood orange sauce being exceptional. Cant think of a flaw.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious Food .. Excellent Service
The waiter knew his business and did an excellent job pairing a wine with our meal.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have the misoyaki...it's their signature dish and it was so flavorful. The presentation of the food was spectacular. They had great wines to offer. The ambiance was very chic. Their servers were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Roy's was a Joy
We had a great dinner. all appetizers, entrees, and deserts were awesome. the best part was the service.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oh so tasty
We went to Roy,s on a whim and loved every minute of it the Lobster potstickers were so tasty and our waiter was fantastic....very attentive but Lexus take our time and relax!

My husband and I had an early dinner at Roy's of Anahiem before an Angels game. We have dined at and loved Roy 's on Oahu, and hoped our experience here would be as good. We were not disappointed! I had the seared scallops with pork belly...oh, my gosh! Delicious! My husband had the seared ahi, and loved it. And Roy's MaiTai? Perfection.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
FINALLY ABLE TO GO TO ROY'S
My daughter and her husband LOVE Roy's. I just had to try dining there. I chose many of the dishes my daughter loved, Some kind of fish that starts with a "B" (not butter) It was very moist and delicious. We had the mahi mahi tacos. Very good too. Also, the poke was good. The seaweed chips were delicious. For dessert we had the crème brulle
My only negative, was the spicy food. All of the food left our mouth tingling
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The entire staff made our anniversary dining experience very enjoyable and the food was very good.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
So a couple girl friends (4 adults and a toddler) and I went to Roy's to celebrate a birthday. The staff was extremely nice, from the hostess at the front to the oerson that led us to our table. Our server (David) was really nice a very informative about the menu. The ambiance was really pleasant and mellow. It wasn't dead quiet as it is a restaurant. The only "bad" thing I have to say is that we did feel a little cramped since the menus were a tad bigger than other places; slightly cramped with the menus in our booth table.

Best Restaurant in Anaheim!
If you love perfection at it's best, I recommend Roy's Restaurant! The food was a delight with French-Asian fusion to tickle your taste buds! Excellent service topped off an enjoyable night... one to be remembered!

I took coworkers to Roy's for their first time. I have been to many-starting with Hawaii Kai on Oahu.
They were very impressed. Think you have new believers :) they will be back!!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM

Best server in a long time!
We were greeted like VIP's and I was addressed by name. The server was excellent. Food is very good but you pay for it!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in town for a convention and looking for a great dinner on the patio so we could enjoy the terrific weather. Roy's was the right choice! The ribeye was outstanding. The scallops & pork belly was divine. And the bone in pork chop was beautiful and tender. Everyone loved their dish so much each insisted on sharing a taste with each other. And our server, Jacob, was very professional and attentive. Terrific experience after a long day.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I wanted to get dinner and drinks before going to a concert at the Honda Center and really wanted to try out Roy's and it surpassed our expectations! I ordered the Roasted Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi and it was amazing! Everything we ate was delicious and the service was so good. I will definitely be coming back with my bf.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was on an out of town business trip and I had a client dinner at Roy's. It happened that it was also my birthday. My wife called Roy's and let them know it was my birthday. Roy's did not do anything tacky like have the staff sing happy birthday, but each member of the waitstaff and the hostesses all warmly wished me a "happy birthday". There was a flower on the table and a little extra dessert at the end. It seemed all very genuine and was deeply appreciated so far from home.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Anaheim Roy's is the "test" restaurant for new recipes. For our recent visit, we chose items from the "test" menu and, as always, enjoyed a sensational meal! Chef Roy and Chef Plata (Anaheim's head chef) never disappoint! This has been, and continues to be, one of my favorite dining places!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our last night at Disney we made reservations for Roy's after the park. It was fantastic! They treated my six year old like royalty and the grown up got to have a great meal.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
i had not been to Roy's in years. all i can say is it was a HUGE improvement !
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Top notch service!
The attention to detail here is outstanding. I thought the food was quite equsite as well! Excellent overall derive and good recommendations really made our meal here quite remarkable. Will be coming back here again.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We choose Roy's for our 28th anniversary celebration based on previous viists. First Chris and his partner, in the bar, were great. He explained the 'happy hour drink specials' and that they were half price until 6:30 PM; makes a great martini.. On to dinner and our server, Clinton. He mentioned the specials for the evening and answered questions on how some of their entrees were prepared. Salads arrived in a short time, followed by the main course. Food was hot and prepared as ordered. Also, save room for dessert which are just the right portion size. On thing we like about Roy's is that we never feel rushed while dining there. Another sucessful dining experience and we will return.

Really nice finish to a long day at Disneyland...service was great and food was very good. The staff was professional and welcoming, drinks were tasty, and the fish very nice...thanks!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
great service from the moment
great service from the moment you walk in all the way through the meal; staff were attentive and helpful; one of those rare restaurants where you can bring the family with younger kids, or come as a couple, and have a great experience either way.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was exceptional from the time we arrived to the time we left. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The edamame starter was a nice. The Rim Fire Calimari - Tangy, lightly sweet, a little hint of chili. Nice texture. We ordered the Maui Wowie shrimp salad. Our waiter immediately asked if we wanted to split the salad. We didn't even have to ask. That was very observant of our waiter. For the main course, we had Misoyaki Butterfish. Delicious! And the Trio of butterfish, macadamia crusted Mahi and salmon. A nice taste of each fish. We ended the evening with the chocolate soufflé. It has a chocolate lava center. All in all, we had a wonderful evening.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've dined at Roy's several times and overall the quality and service is consistent. Customer service is exceptional, if you have any issue, the management at Roy's will take good care of you! We had our first food issue and Don, the manager was on it and went above and beyond, we will never forget the attention that he gave us! Also our waiter, Jacob was great too! We recommend ordering the Canoe appetizer, it's a wonderful sampling of several tasty appetizers. We'll definitely be back to Roy's!!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM

Absolutely a great dining experience. Service was top notch. A little bit on the pricey side but worth the splurge.

Special Care on a Special Day
We drove from San Diego to Anaheim for my wife's birthday as this is her favorite restaurant. Even though there are two Roy's in the San Diego area, they do not compare to the Anaheim location. He menu included a special, personalized greeting just for her and all of the wait staff wished her a happy birthday at some point during the meal. Oh yeah, the food and service were outstanding as usual.
Only one thing I would change: the room could use to be updated.
Thanks to the Roy's Anaheim staff for a great experience!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Got to Go
I've been to several Roy's and this one is right up there with the original Roy's and the one on the Big Island!
Great receptionist, great waiter, great wine & drinks and an Ahi steak prepared to prefection.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
food was top notch, the service was incredible and the wine list was well above the average. I really liked the roys cabernet, the now use the bianchi winery for there house wine and it is wonderful
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about this place was Outstanding, I ordered flowers through OpenTable for my daughter and they were set on our table when we arrived with the staff pampering us throughout the night. Everything we ordered was with the freshest ingredients from the sashimi to the desert.
