    Dining at Roy's is always a treat. The atmosphere is quiet & romantic. The service is prompt, but not rushed. The dishes are creative and deliver maximum taste. For this visit we enjoyed the restaurant week special which was a 3 course meal for $30/pp. The potstickers & Mahi roll appetizers were oh so tasty. She had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi entrée which was done to perfection while I tried the braised short ribs. I usually prefer my meat medium rare, so this probably wasn't the best choice for me, but it was still enjoyable. The desserts were absolutely amazing. We don't usually get them, but it was part of the special and boy are we glad....Overall you can't go wrong here. It's like dining on vacation in Hawaii...mahalo!

    Been here many times and it's always very good. Service is attentive and helpful. Food excellent. I always wind up ordering the seared tuna and haven't been disappointed. Decaf coffee afterwards was not hot but readily corrected by our server. Ambience is romantic. If a special occasion, they take a picture of the party and give you a complimentary desert. Better than the one in Honolulu, I think.

    We had a very delicious meal. I had petite filet and lobster - cooked to perfection. My husband had short ribs and the meat fell off the bones. So wonderful! They also have a gluten free menu or will make your dinner to taste. We always do special occasion dinners at Roy's. Special occasions are celebrated if you tell them a head of time. We will be back to try their special Happy Hour soon. Thanks for making it a very special birthday

It was my boyfriends birthday and they took a picture and printed a copy for us! I really enjoyed dining here.

    Ambiance nearly ruined due to change in waiters before ordering. Female waiter first took care of drinks and then explained that she was switching with another (male) waiter. However, that did not transpire and we instead got an older waiter that was not very unprofessional. Food was tasty, however, the portions are too small for how much they charge for entrees.

    Although we have dined here before, we have never come for brunch. The holiday menu did not disappoint us! From the minute we walked in, politeness abounded! We were graciously seated at our table & our waiter, Eric, was the epitome of what skills a server should possess-politeness, outgoing, courteous, knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, & never made us feel rushed or like we were a bother. The food, from the house made cinnamon buns that were brought to each table in place of ordinary rolls to dessert, we were thoroughly pleased with our meal & choice of restaurants.

  • Why is this Roy's starting to suck?

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    I've been going to this Roy's since it opened and recently it's been going downhill. I booked Easter brunch with my brother and wife figuring that it would be awesome. With my brother battling cancer and being on chemo food is a luxury and Roy's is his favorite. Maybe I better say was. The food was good but the service and competency of the server was non existent. Roy's needs to hire trained professional personal. Focused on quality service and knowing the menu. Our waiter was distracted, answered questions with descriptions of other items. He reached across the table several times. I asked him if he wanted to serve us and he responded with "why". I should have moved or asked for another waiter, my wife is very kind but now disappointed.

    Went on a Monday night and saw they had a special deal $29 for an appetizer and entree. But you had to point it out to the server before ordering. As when the bill comes you are charged the regular price and it's too late to state that you are doing the special as apparently it's not assumed.

    Comfortable seating, simple decor. The presentation and preparation of our food was delightful. I had the scallops and they were perfectly prepared with a lovely sear on the outside. My daughter had the three fish and the mahi mahi and the butter fish were fabulous. The char on the salmon was overwhelming and too much of a contrast with the overly sweet sauce. My son and husband had the filet &lobster which were tender and lucisous. My Mom had a spicy shrimp and noodle dish with a delightful sauce with some heat at the end. The pineapple upside down cake and chocolate salted caramel dessert were quite lovely. Overall our server was quite attentive, although there were two times we had to ask another staff member to send him over.

    the hostess threatened us because we were late, it was Christmas Eve, said we were off the reservation list and then seated us by the kitchen even though there were other empty tables that stayed empty through the evening. The waiter and busboy were new to the job, perhaps because it was Christmas Eve. The butterfish was delicious! We've gone before on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful time. This time, meh!

    We frequent Roy's for special occasions (anniversary, birthday). We find Roy's an excellent choice. Food is always prepared fresh and entrees arrive to the table hot. Presentation very nice. They have a good variety of wines although most vintners are not familiar to us (and we are very into wines!). There are a nice variety of desserts, also. All staff are extremely friendly and know the menu well. We have only been to Roy's for dinners, so we do not know if there is a separate menu for lunch. $$$ - a bit high in dinner prices for food and wine, but well worth the trip. Two persons including wine, by the glass, and less tip and dessert always comes out to around $125. We usually take out of town guest here for dinner.

    My wife and I went to Roy's for our 56th Wedding Anniversary and would recommend it for a like celebration. I would describe the fare as Asian Fusion with the emphasis on fish. I had the four fish special and enjoyed everything, especially the Butterfish. The portions were small as were the sides. My wife had the Mahi mahi in macadamia nuts but was disappointed with the "fishy" taste and the thick cut made it somewhat dry in the middle. We shared their signature chocolate soufflé and loved it. The wine was great as well. This is a fine restaurant with good food and acceptable surroundings........but it isn't Kauai, where we have eaten at their facility and the prices are comparable. We felt the bill was somewhat out of line.
