Beautiful views and great food
Every time we visit Roy's we have a great time. The food is excellent, I love the well thought out and beautifully prepared meals, both for lunch, dinner and brunch. The chef is very innovative, it is always a tough choice to pick one entree, there is just so many delicious options to choose from.
Service is always friendly, it feels as if you are on a mini vacation.
Highly recommend the outside seating and bar.

We visited Roy's for a romantic dinner for two and were extremely pleased with the food, the ambience and the service. The butterfish was delicious beyond words and we would highly recommend the Baja Roll.

Awesome appetizers & cocktails
Anyone who goes should have the short ribs for appetizer, it's off the chain! The seared ahi was decent but pales compared to the ribs. Scallops were cooked to perfection & butterfish was really good. Our friend did not care for his surf and turf. He said the meat was not cooked to his like, the lobster tail looked a bit on the small side. The Side Car, Moscato, & Jalapeño margarita were really good! The only shortcoming was our waiter being quite slow, the table of 2 came about 20 min after us and got their entrees served before our entree came. We were not very happy about it.

Great Place for Family Dining
We're from out of town and went to Roy's for our Anniversary.. They had great food, the service was amazing and they even offered up bread and a dish of ice-cream for my Son at no cost.. We all had a great meal and wen't for a nice walk along the harbour after dinner as the sun set. Highly recommend this place.

Chain Plus Dining
Better than most chains - portions are small - so you won't leave stuffed - but everything was nicely prepared and a nice mix of tastes worthy of the fusion moniker- our waitress was top notch. Best Mai Tai I have had. Try the upside down pineapple cake for dessert - you'll have room.

We had the Trio of Seafood
We had the Trio of Seafood and Duck Confit Salad--we shared both and they were both superb! We also shared the boat of appetizers and that was excellent as well. All three are definitely recommended!

Return visit recommended
A tad pricy but your taste buds will live you for it. Our waiter had a great personality and the service was awesome. Didn't appear to have a huge kid menu but for adults it's great. Wine list is extensive and the view of the marina is nice. If you get the chance? Go enjoy!!!

Outstanding meal, service & view!
We've enjoyed fabulous meals at many of the Roy's restaurants in HI, SF, Pebble Beach, and now SD. We've had great meals at all (well, except the time that the Maui Roy's ran out of butterfish!), but for some reason, this SD Roy's seems to have been exceptionally good. My favorite butterfish was outstanding, as was our entire meal, as well as the service. A wonderful view, as well. They were also able to accommodate my husband's need for a gluten free meal.

This is a new great find for us and we will return with and without friends! Everybody should try the Roy's Trio of fish and it appeared that the wife enjoyed the scallops as well.

One of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a long time. Great food, great service, great atmosphere.

Didn't get to the wine list. . .their cocktails are amazing! The food was fantastic. The service was perfect. View of the fireworks just topped off the evening. We eat out often. Nobu 57th is a family favorite but we have never enjoyed ourselves more there or anywhere than our evening at Roy's San Diego Waterfront.

This was our first time visiting Roy's.
We sat on the patio with a great view of the bay and was able to people watch.
The food was very good and the martini's to die for.
Will definitely go back.

Fabulous outdoor dining
Normally I don't do chain restaurants because I am a purist, but this is the exception. We dined outside for my boyfriend's birthday. The waitstaff made everything perfect for the occasion - everyone said Happy Birthday, note in the menu, complimentary dessert. The food at Roy's is excellent, and the outdoor dining is great - it's off the tourist path so not overly noisy or chilly. We had sushi appetizers, then he had swordfish and I had butterfish, both were delicious. We also had the South African sauvignon blanc which was a perfect pairing. Our waitress was energetic and fun, as was everyone we encountered on staff. The dinner is certainly not inexpensive, but well worth it for a special occasion.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good & enjoyable!
This was our first time at Roy's, as we were not disappointed! The drinks were great and the food was amazing! The only drawback was the waiter was VERY pushy about us ordering more appetizers, food, drinks, desserts, etc...I know that is part of their job, but he went overboard. We started to feel uncomfortable with all the things he was pushing on us to get. He was never rude, he was totally friendly, but it was just TOO MUCH!
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ok but not great.
Expensive for the choice and quality of seafood. But the setting and service are excellent.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The butterfish, amazing ... mushroom apetizer, delicious... surf and turf, perfect... split plate perfect size for two ... will be back.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pre-dinner drinks at the bar outside are a must! Great drinks, and even better atmosphere! It feels like you are in Hawaii for a night! The food is great too, and reasonabily priced for a special occasion dinner!
Little tip: enter from the Marriott and enjoy the beautiful view of the gorgeous pool from the bridge (it helps the hawaiian feel!!).
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed this Roy's for the first time last month and have been anxious to return. We brought friends who had not been here before. All four of enjoyed the patio setting, food and drinks. The 'group' service was very good, but our personal server ordered one drink wrong and made an inappropriate comment when I turned down ordering a third round of drinks. We probably over tipped him!

Great way to end a long day
Went during comic con and wanted to find a place that didn't have a long wait. Thanks to open table we were able to book our reservation and walk in and be seated in little wait. Because it was comic con weekend it was packed and really loud. Possibly on a regular night it wouldn't be that way? Food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Their molten chocolate cake was just alright, would not order it again. Service was great considering how crowded it was.

Great Food + Location
They were able to take care of my team and provide great food.

Good food. Good time.
Enjoyed the food and excellent service. Beautiful waterfront view.

Roy's food is always outstanding. I will keep coming back!

We loved our dinner at Roy's
I've dined at Roy's many times in many different locations. This one is special because of its location, on the water in San Diego overlooking the harbor and bay. Its a lovely locations with great outdoor seating and views. The food was amazing as always. I had the butterfish, yummy, and my husband had the yellowfin tuna. We shared the chocolate souffle for dessert. We also enjoyed very nice wine with our meal. I will definitely return.

Our server was fantastic and very attentive.

Great for Lunch!
Patio very nice. Great views of harbor and marina. Food was very weil prepared, presented and tasted fantastic!. Service was a little spotty in the beginning but was fine after that. Bar drinks were good, but you get the shaft for premium alcohol! Ex: Bloody Mary, $8.95 for well vodka. Added another $5.00 for Grey Goose to the already $8.95 for a total of $13.95 for one drink!!!! Sorry, but no matter where you go that's a total rip off! $8.95 for a regular Bloody Mary should have included premium spirits!

Outstanding food and service
The food was excellent as usual and our waitress was great. She was very personable and attentive.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Roys for an early dinner with friends before the SD Symphony Pops Concert. We asked to be seated outside and it was delightful; We had a nice table and marvellous view. The service was really good, and the food was a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue!! Every plate was a work of art. The subtle flavors in my sushi appetizer were wonderful and my entree of scallops were perfectly cooked with nice contracting tastes of sweet apricots and herbs. I would definitely want to go back.

Dinner with a view
Located overlooking the Marina this Roy's is the perfect San Diego dining spot for both dining and people watching.
Within the grounds of the Marriott Marquis in a very elegant building, this large restaurant with Private Dining on the upper floor and Main dining Room on the lower waterfront level is the perfect dining experience. We opted for the Prix Fixe menu three courses for under $40.00 each, great value and as always super presentation with service by Dan to match. The Roy's house Chardonnay is worth a mention, very reasonably priced at around $40.00 a bottle, the taste is that of a much more expensive wine.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
On the Water
Sitting outside on the patio and seeing the boats in the harbor and the people walking by on the boardwalk is a great San Diego summer experience. We go to Roy's before attending a Summer Pop's program and always enjoy a wonderful dinner.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The seafood entree I ordered (the Trio) was delicious - moist, tasty, and just the right amount.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding in every respect
This is a wonderful location to take out-of-town visitors whom you wish to "wow" with San Diego and its waterfront. The restaurant is suitably classy without being pretentious. On sunny days, there is nothing more stunning than to sit at an umbrella equipped table and view the collection of boats, yachts, cruisers and pedestrians crossing San Diego Bay and walking along the Embarcadero. It's a bit on the pricey side due to its target audience being the myriad of convention goers who are always filling the nearby hotels and who are on company expense accounts. We've dined at several Roy's in Hawaii and California, but we think this one is extra special. If you are looking for a restaurant to impress your out-of-town guests - this is it.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good seafood for reasonable
Very good seafood for reasonable prices, we had a great table with an awesome view of the harbor. Girlfriend had a butterfish dish that was one of the best pieces of fish I've tried. I had the shellfish sampler which was very fresh and crab cake was delicious We really enjoyed the view and feel of the restaurant, only downside I would say was it was a tad confusing on how to get in the restaurant from the Marriott hotel.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, allergy sensitive
The experience was just as great as the last time. They have lots of gluten free options, including an amazing chocolate souffle! I had a great business dinner this time, it was pretty much social the last time. The noise level and ambiance are great for any time. Service was perfect, even with our large party.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Hawaiian Dishes
We stayed at the San Diego Marriott Marquis where Roy's is located so the location was very convenient for us. The food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the samplers as appetizers and the entrees were superbly prepared. The service was equally very good. I highly recommend this restaurant and would consider it a "must visit" for anyone staying in San Diego.

Lot of Class!
We celebrated our anniversary and this was a perfect environment! Staff were very attentive, food was excellent, and the view was to remember. We even got a special dessert and a note commemorating our celebration! The restaurant was very accommodating to seat us with a great view!

Hawaiian ambience in San Diego
We are fans of Roy's restaurants and have eaten at many. This one is unique in that it is near the harbor, lots of outdoor seating and the tiki torches gave a Hawaiian feel . We ate here to celebrate an anniversary and were not disappointed. We enjoyed an outdoor table near a firepit, and our favorite meals, the Ahi and the Butterfish, were prepared to perfection. Our waiter provided excellent service and we are happy to say that most Roy's restaurants have the best servers. Next time we are in San Diego we will eat here again.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my girlfriend here for our 6 year anniversary and this place was nothing but good vibes. Our waitress was very nice and the service here is incredible. They acctual took the time to take a picture of us and printed us out a congratulations letter to us. I dont think any other restaraunt does these type of things for special occasions. And on top of it all they gave us free dessert for our anniversary. I would recommend this place to anyone!!!

Delicious food. Table along window with view of water was very nice. Calamari appetizer was excellent as well as Roy's Trio for main course. Our wait staff was very good as well. We had a really good time.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I haven't been to a Roy's Restaurant in about two years, and was ecstatic that I was staying within steps of the one near my Marriott hotel. The service and food were dynamite, and the margaritas were killer. This is a great place to go if you enjoy sushi or seafood. Their Lakanilau Roll was even better than I remember it. We had the filet with lobster and the mixed seafood trio (all fish). It was incredible. We left stuffed and didn't mind the price- you get what you pay for! I highly recommend a visit to Roy's!

and beautiful presentation. By the way great cocktail choices as well

A Great Hotel Eatery
They always do a great job here and be sure to try the "Three Fish Dinner". It is a good variety, not to large yet plenty of food.
If you want to look out yet be comfortable get a booth rather than the window tables.

This is our 8th dinner at
This is our 8th dinner at Roy's restaurant in 2013 and perhaps one the best in a line of great experiences. In addition to the very fine food and service (thanks Rick and Cris) but nature decided to treat us to the most beautiful, after sun set, sky glow that evolved for over 30 minutes during the hour. Bye the way, the restaurant visits have split evenly between the Two in San Diego and the one in Las Vegas.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
