Great variety on the menu.
Great variety on the menu. Provides excellent choices with the addition of a gluten free menu. Best deal was putting together a fixed-pre gluten free menu at a great price. Enjoyed our entire experience.

Great all around experience
The staff was very friendly/helpful/attentive (Host, bartender, server, Mgr.). Sat at the bar before our reservation and got great service. Our server and assistant were fantastic. They didn't miss anything. Never ran out of anything before they asked if we wanted more. They even made some conversation with our 7 year old son. He has questions... All that said, the food was even more awesome. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners and had togo containers (needed room for dessert). My only comment is that I thought the chocolate lava cake had a little too much raspberry(?) sauce. It distracted us slightly from the rest of the dessert. But they still had one less dish to clean when we were done. Always a favorite.

Wonderful experience! Met two couples for dinner and requested seating on the patio. Was seated promptly. I would recommend the patio if you would like to catch up with friends since it is quiet and kind of private. The food was better than expected and the service the same. When we ordered coffee at the end of dinner one of the cups had lipstick on it so the waitress immediately replaced it with a new cup. We were surprised later that Emiliano (Managing Partner) came over to appologize for the mistake and said he would not charge us for the coffees. He not only didn't charge us for the coffee but took off $20 from our total bill. I will visit this restaurant on a regular basis in the future and will highly recommend. Outstanding!

Service was amazing and the food was even better. We are often disappointed when we go out to dinner, either the food is typically mediocre at best and the service is in line with the food. This is not the case here, the food was great, the service was better than great, just a great dining experience overall.

Great food, outstanding service
When traveling, I like to take advantage of visiting restaurants of notable chefs, and was glad to see Roy's nearby where I was in Chandler. The service simply could not have been better, and made the evening what it was. The food, of course, was terrific as anticipated. Seafood choices abound, and are all worthy of consideration. Desserts are not to be overlooked, especially the 20-minute-lead-time pineapple upside down cake, which pairs superbly with a glass of port.

Second time for dinner
Roy's is outstanding when it comes to food. We were seated in a corner with a water stand for serving. Finally after being distrubed while the wait staff grabbed water - I said I felt uncomfortable and they had me move around the table which was for four with just two of us. Now I am staring at the water table. I felt they should have moved us since there were plenty of tables available at our dinner seating. Otherwise, it was an excellent birthday and mom's day dinner.

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to Roy's and will not be our last. The ambience was outstanding. Food was great as well as the service, both in the dining area and the bar. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to our friends.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've occasionally visited Roy's here locally and when in Hawaii. My husband could not stop talking about how much he loved the sushi and steak/crab he had for dinner. Food was prepared very well and the service was great.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was looking for a Seafood restaurant thru Open Table and we found Roy's. Very nice evening . The sauces were awesome, made the fish different......than other restaurants.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Check the Bill
Everything was wonderful, but our bill included items we did not order. When I told the waitress I thought she may have given us the wrong bill, she knew right away what the items were. Hmmm?
Other than that, have had many enjoyable experiences at Roy's, and we will go back.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything about our visit was outstanding. It is great to have such a fine restaurant in Chandler, Az. I forgot how great an experience it is to eat at a five star restaurant. I'll have to do it more often!
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Roy's was great!
The food and service were excellent and we will definitely go back. It's hard to get good seafood in the desert and while eating at Roy's you'd think you were on a Hawaiian Island.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server Violet was knowledgable about the food and was attentive but not obnoxious. The short ribs were excellent and we all agreed the chocolate soufflé was the best dessert we've had at a restaurant in a long time!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Busy but good
Restaurant was full on a Saturday evening over Memorial Day weekend. They sat us in a side room which is often not used. Ceilings are lower there and with a full restaurant, the noise level was high. Service was a little slow but not too bad. Food was excellant as usual.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tried for the first time during Arizona Restaurant Week. Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi was so delicious, as was my companion's Salmon. Server was beyond great -- she enhanced our already great experience at Roy's. Their chocolate soufflé is a must for dessert.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
restaurant week experience!
Roy's in Chandler. Our waiter was attentive and interacted with us flawlessly.
My wife, a friend, and I ordered from the Restaurant week Menu. The 1st course was an Ahi Roll which was tempura battered it was great. The headliner for me personally was the Beef Short Rib. Geezus!! It was a large portion and it was tender and didn't require a knife at all. The flavor was unbelievable with a little sweet, salt, and slight viscous sauce that right at this moment, makes me salivate!! It was also served with Puree Potato and some broccoli. Also very good. My wife had the Mahi. We finished the meal off with cheesecake and a chocolate souffle! Stuffed !! I had to take more than 1/2 of my Short rib home so I could enjoy my dessert. I still talk

My wife and I were celebrating
My wife and I were celebrating our 33rd anniversary. I put that information in the note with the reservations sent in on OpenTable. I also let them know that I was eating gluten-free. Roy's did a great job - having special recognition in our menus recognizing our anniversary, providing chocolate cake and "happy anniversary" written on the plate, coming and taking a picture of us at our table, and proving the picture in a frame for us before we left. They also provided me with a gluten-free menu and agreed to make a dish that I had selected from the main menu gluten-free. The service was excellent and the food very good. This was a memorable dinner for our anniversary.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
another great dining experience.
We are almost regulars here since we reside in Ahwatukee. It is fortunate that we can enjoy a nice evening out at a top-reated restaurant close to us. There were 4 in the party this time, and we all enjoyed our meals (Surf and Turf, Shellfish sampler and Swordfish). We'll be back for sure.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Place to Celebrate
Roy's offers an outstanding variety of dishes, wonderful service and great ambience for an enchanting evening out. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions at Roy's quite often. Its always top notch.
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food and drinks! I will definitely return to Roy's in Chandler!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellence at Roy's
Roy's has been one of our favorite restaurants for several years. We have been fortunate to visit many Roy's restaurants: Chandler, Desert Ridge, Las Vegas, Ohau, Maui, and Kauai. In fact, we had an excellent meal at Roy's Ohau just 10 days ago. So, upon our return home from that vacation we made reservations at Roy's Chandler. Our meal was excellent, service was excellent, AND we look forward to a return soon
As always -- THANK YOU!

Sushi was fresh and colorfull, Very quick service......Great prices for happy hour.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for a family celebration
Servers were attentive and well-timed with appearance. Butterfish was so good, 3 of us ordered it
Waiter recognized us, which was lent itself to friendly vibe. Made us feel welcome. We'll return.

Dinner for Two
We had the opportunity recently to dine at Roy's for our 18th anniversary. The staff at Roy's were polite and well versed in the restaurant menu as well as the wine list. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere quiet and relaxing. We did make reservations prior and mention that is was our anniversary. As a special memento, a Happy Anniversary page was placed in our menus which they gave us at the end of the evening. It was a very nice surprise. The attention to detail and that little extra personal touch was greatly appreciated and noticed by my husband and my self. I would definitely recommend Roy's.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Experience....as always
This is the first time at THIS Roy's...been to three others and truly enjoyed this restaurant because I didn't also have to by a plane ticket to get to it. Everyone was very attentinve and cordial. the food was excellent...light, presented well, fantastic flavors.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal and customer service!
Its been several years since we were at Roy's (the last time we had a bad experience) and decided to give it another try. We had the seafood sampler and it was WONDERFUL and our waitress was one of the best we have ever - very professional, yet ver personable.
We will be back!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service was great. Ambience was less than expected. Very high noise level. I found myself yelling at my guest.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner at Roy's. Macadamia nut Mahi topped off with the chocolate souffle!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM

The food was wonderful and the wait staff - Violet-was attentive and enthusiastic. Loved it!

Loved the food!
What a great culinary nite! The service was magnificent--both the waiter and the server. The food came on the perfect schedule--not too fast or slow. The three courses had wonderful complementary sauces. The wine suggested by our waiter worked well with the three courses. Can't wait to return.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful and the portions were large. Our server Kristen was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. So happy we chose Roy's for restaurant week. We will definitely return.

We chose this as a destination in our restaurant week adventure. The food was superb--well beyond expectations. The mahi mahi was spectacular as were the short ribs. Service was prompt and friendly.

Decadence at it's finest
The presentation of the food was amazing. The pairings of flavors in each dish, from appetizers to desert, were delicious.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Anniversary Meal
We enjoyed a Restaurant Week meal at Roy's for our wedding anniversary. It was romantic and special. Their fish is so fresh and delicious. We wish we could afford more meals at Roy's. Roy's really fusses over their diners. The service is impeccable and discrete. The food is all carefully crafted. We highly recommend Roy's.
Try their Happy Hour food and cocktails, if their prices are too steep for you.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service, Great Seafood
Roy's is one of the few restaurants that is consistently good in both service and food. The staff is well versed in the menu items and also very knowledgeable in types of fish and suggested proper preparation. Lobster pot stickers for starters and the lava cake for dessert are always a must along with Original Hawaiian Martini. Roy's is also very accommodating of substitutions, if you don't happen to like a particular sauce on your fish, they have never had a problem of a substitution of another sauce on the menu. Many restaurants really try to avoid any substitutions of preparation or sauces, Roy's has no problem with this.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
They Went Above and Beyond
We were celebrating both our engagement and my fiances birthday. When making the reservation I made a little note about that thinking she would appreciate if they wished her a happy birthday. However, they went all out. As we arrived we were greeted with well wishes. Once we were seated at a great booth we opened our menus only to find a personalized message to us congratulating us! They came and took a photo of us which they presented to us in a cute frame at the end of the night. They also included two complimentary desserts with nice messages of congrats and happy birthday. On top of this the food was OUTSTANDING. We had the short ribs and the meat was so tender, melt in your mouth. Tuna roll and lobster potstickers were great as well!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
First let me say Violet is
First let me say Violet is a treasure- ask for her section! The food was really good but I think most people know that. What makes this a great place is how well you're treated from the moment you step in the door. Let them know when you make your reservation if you are celebrating something and they will (quietly and tastefully) acknowledge it. I will also say that it can get a bit noisy; I had some trouble hearing my table-mate when all the tables (and probably bar) were occupied. That said, it is still a worthwhile place to dine!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
As Usual, a Great Meal
Another great meal and dining experience at Roy's. Great spot for a quiet and romantic evening. The food is awesome, not the ultimate foodie destination, but awesome nonetheless.
The salad with the pork belly is way good. It's like having a little pork candy.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but a little dark
We loved the food and top notch service. We did find the restaurant to be very dimly lit. I'm all for ambiance except when I am unable to clearly read the menu. I would still highly recommend this restaurant.

Roy's - Chander Az.
We've been to Roy's other locations , while in Chandler, went for a special anniversary dinner. We've never been disappointed, great food (seafood done to perfection), excellent customer service from hostess, bus people, to server, all of them extending themselves to take care of even the little things. Chef Patrick's menu makes it hard to choose from but it means returning to try the other offerings. Chose the appetizer platter for two which meant we were able to sample five appetizers and then shared each other's entrees, the seafood sampler and the butterfish. Americanos accompanied the pineapple & chocolate desserts. All yummy.
Roy's has always delivered us a memorable dining experience & we will return to a Roy's where ever we travel.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Roy's served outstanding food with a wonderful fusion of flavors and textures. The menu was diverse and offered a wide range of options. The peach sorbet is not to be missed! The service was excellent and the atmosphere quiet enough you could carry on a conversation without talking loudly.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The team here made our celebration
The team here made our celebration special and service was great. The food was very good but the dessert was fabulous. Even the kids had a good time and enjoyed our dinner. We will definitely come back soon.

Went on a date, waitress was really nice, attentive but gave us or space. Food was above decent, maybe a high 6. But I've got really high standards.

The complimentary seasoned
The complimentary seasoned edamame had just the right heat .The Salt and Pepper Calamari was cooked to perfection, nice, tender and flavorful. The chili sauce gave it some nice heat. The entrees were prepared perfectly and presented in an appealing way. The wait staff was very informative and attentive.
