Diner Reviews
  • "We really enjoyed dining at Roy's this past weekend. The food was great and consistent. The service from valet parking to server were professional and attentive. Will definitely be returning. Denise & Cliff"

  • "From the Poke appetizer to the entrees, our dining experience was top notch. Food was more delicious than I remember from my last visit there. On the expensive side, but for a splurge worth it!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Found the food to be overpriced and underwhelming and poorly presented. We experienced more appetizing and more reasonably priced meals at other establishments. Lighting deficient."

  • "Enjoyed a wonderful sea bass entree at Roys; it was just delicious. Service was great. The ice cream trio and warm cookies were also delicious. Will be back the next time I am in Baltimore."

  • "Roy's in Baltimore had a familiar feel to it as you enter the restaurant. The menu too has similar items with special entrees depending upon the chef. Once the food arrived it was as one has come to expect...terrific. However the server was inattentive which overshadowed the experience. There were times during the meal, 30 minutes, when the server was no where to be found. He never followed up and brought the check without asking if members of the party wanted coffee etc. we were happy to leave."

  • "We have not been to a Roy's since the one in Philadelphia closed a couple years ago. We had always liked their food and were delighted to have an opportunity to dine at the one in Baltimore. If anything, the food was even better than we remembered. I ordered what for me was a new dish, the lobster pot pie. It was incredible. Flaky crust, a wonderfully tasty sauce, fresh potatoes, carrots and peas, and a very generous portion of lobster meat. The service was even better than the food. Our server, T.J., is a superstar - a pleasant, outgoing personality and very knowledgeable about the menu, he swung by our table several times to make sure we had everything we needed. All in all, a superb experience."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "We had a GREAT time there! My daughters, 14 and 6 yo respectively, each found a dish that they enjoyed. The food was superb, everything was in just the right size portions, and service was quick and attentive. We can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Roy's is one of my favorite restaurants in the Baltimore area. The food, the ambience and service is all great. Save room for dessert & get their warm chocolate cake that comes with a scoop of ice cream! They have valet parking available so that's also very convenient."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "this restaurant was always one of my favorites. However, this evening was very unpleasant. There was a large party in the same room as us that felt they were in their own homes with yelling, children running around the dinning room, adults getting up and walking around yelling at each other and hair combing over by another table of restaurant guests (not theirs). We were not the only people disgusted!"

  • "Roy's is a once a while spot for my wife and I. It like a occassion spot not a hey let's go as one of fav joint and meet our feiwnds I spent $100 and I had a $25 gift card. Fusion menu is good and something different for once in a while date night."

  • "Went for a price fix menu and ended up tripling the costs with extras! Expensive drinks!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I was very excited to go here since I lived in Hawaii. We came in to celebrate our anniversary, which they made special with a framed quote & taking our picture. Our reservation was for 7 but we came in early for Aloha hour. The drinks were great. I have not had a good Mai Tai since I left the islands until my visit to Roys. We enjoyed appetizers (pork & shrimp gyoza & ahi roll) at the bar & both were delicious. We ordered off the restaurant week menu & the Rangoons and short ribs roll were again very delicious. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly & served over perfectly done potatoes with green beans. I normally hate dessert, but the warm torte even had me eating it & not wanting to share."

  • "We visited for an early birthday dinner and our server, Derrick, and his assistant were fantastic! They were knowledgeable about the menu and helped us by recommending some really great dishes, both as starters and main courses. Everything arrived timely and everyone was very pleasant - we'll definitely be back!"

  • "We had the lobster potstickers and beef bi bam for appetizers. Both we amazing! My husband had the surf and turf and I had Roy's trio. He loved his and I loved two of mine. The mahi mahi came out over cooked which they fixed but it still wasn't my fav. Overall wonderful!"

  • "My wife and i recently went to Roy's for our anniversary. This was the first time either one of us had been to Roy's. I was very happy with the food and the restaurant week prices, however, We were rushed through all three courses and the Waiter did not like that after my wife ordered her two drinks that i did not order an alcoholic beverage. I understand up-selling but it was almost badgering, making recommendations that made no sense. Sadly that was not the worst part. After we received our bill i presented a credit card to pay, he came back about 10 minutes later and told me that their credit card machine was not working and could I go across the street to the ATM to pay in cash. Very unprofessional for such a so called nice restaurant."

    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We were seated immediately upon our arrival. My wife made a comment to the hostess who seated us, who responded with something about her boyfriend sharing something in common. A couple of minutes later, I heard the same hostess modifying her spiel about her boyfriend for another set of diners. When our waiter came over, she asked, "is this the xxxx party?" And the overly-rehearsed process continued. Our waiter obviously had a personality and could have been been great on her own, but the whole thing felt like a machine. Don't tell me that pies take extra time so we should order ahead; that's just trying to upsell before we're full. The food? Very good for both of us. Drinks? My wife loved her mixed drinks. Just be yourselves!!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "everything was over-greasy, poorly seasoned and poorly executed. very disappointed being from Hawaii myself and having this as the representation of Hawaiian cuisine. We had the butterfish wraps, the bibimbap, the lobster dumplings and the vegetable tempura. the only redeeming dish was the semifreddo I had for desert."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I only go to Roy's when I'm traveling since we don't have one in DC. And every time I go to one, it is a great meal. I have been to their restaurants in San Francisco, Arizona, Honolulu & now Baltimore. Honolulu is still my favorite. I always order the butterfish, molten chocolate cake and the hawaiian martini, and the buttefish is simply amazing!!! I had the trio - salmon, mahi & butterfish the other night and the buttefish stole the show. So I ordered another entree. Then I ended my meal with the chocolate cake. I love Roy's and I Am looking forward to my next visit."

  • "I just wanted to say that the dine experience here was awesome and Kristin at the front was the best she took care of my relative and I and made us feel so welcome and because of her going so above and beyond during my visit I have recommended to my office to use this for our next 4 lunch meeting for the rest of the year. The management was awesome as well there was a small hickup with my relative order but it was corrected immediately and was compensated with out our knowing at the end with a lovely to die for desert I told him that this was not necessary and he said no way we like to take care of our guest it left this lasing impresion and i am for ever a Roys customer!!!! I believe his name was Briceon"

  • "Roy's is one of my "go to" restaurants. But the one downside is the noise level. OpenTable calls it energetic - and it is. But if you're just having a quiet dinner with family or friends - this isn't the place to be (at least not this past Tuesday night). There's nothing wrong with the restaurant at all - and I still highly recommend it. But to go there is to accept the fact that at time the noise levels reach that "energetic" level whether you're prepared for it or not."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We went here for our anniversary and weren't impressed with the food or the ambiance. It wasn't very romantic and the food, for the prices, was not anything to write home about. Definitely do not recommend."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Roy's recognized our special occasion with table decorations and as always provided an outstanding meal. Our "go-to" special occasion restaurant!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I consider myself a Roy's "regular" since I eat there often and have eaten at numerous locations. As commented in my reviews in the past, there really is nothing that can be said from a negative perspective about the food. The service on the other hand seems to be a hit or miss at the Baltimore location. I'm sorry if I think there is more to a server doing his/her job than merely taking the order and then showing up once during the meal and then once to take a dessert order. When you buy a nice bottle of wine the server should make an attempt to pour the wine. At some restaurants they even get offended if you TRY to pour it yourself. Server was just MIA most of the time even though she was nice."

  • "We were seated on time. Our server was busy and perhaps distracted with answers to our menu questions. Responses were not real favorable or customer friendly. Our snapper was spongy and perhaps over frozen prior to cooking. It lacked flavor. I would recommend this place."

  • "The food, service were great. The noise level is terrible; if you want a romantic evening where you are able to converse with your partner, this is not the place!"

  • "I arrived on time and was immediately seated. Saturday night at 7:00pm. Was given an order of Edamame at the upon arrival. Shared a california lobster roll as appetizer and was enough for two. Ordered surf and turf dinner and Grilled Salmon. Both orders came with a starch and vegetables. Both were prepared to perfection. I would return. A+"
