    My wife and I enjoy Roy's. We have been to their restaurants in Hawaii, San Diego, Naples and Bonita Springs on various occasions. The Roy's in Bonita has an excellent chef and great staff. I highly recommend you go there. You will see most entrees in the $35 range and apps between $9 and $15 (try the Poki or Lobster Pot Stickers). We recommend the butterfish, mahi mahi, and any of the chef creations on the front of the menu. Even non fish lovers will love the fish. Don't forget to save room for souffle.

    When we travel to Florida a couple of times a year, we always make it a point to visits Roy's!!!! Whether we are with the kids, or just the two of us, it is an amazing experience.... Our server , Jill , even remembered us and our kids from February!!!! She remembered my husbands allergy to lobster and it was just so nice to feel that the establishment appreciates our business. The food was great as always, and I suggest that everyone makes it a point yo visits Roy's!!!

    Usually an excellent place. But got the special filet and lobstertail. It was the worst filet i've ever had. 2 ounces of grisle and fat. Awful. I can't even believe the chef cooked it and served it!

    This was our first visit in over a year (we had not been happy the last couple of times), and are we ever glad we gave Roy's another chance. The ambiance was just as pleasant as we remembered, and the food and service have returned to their formerly truly outstanding level. Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed everything, and the blackened tuna might be the best version of that dish I have ever had. Will definitely continue going back!

    Delicious food. Nice staff, but probably under pressure to upsell. 3 people in our group, each wanting a vegetarian spring roll. Kelly could have told us there were 3 rolls to an order, instead she let us assume there were 2 and encouraged us to place 2 orders. She asked us 3 times if we wanted to pre-order the special desserts that took 20 minutes to prepare. However, she couldn't quite remember to send someone to refill our water or bring a few items she'd forgotten. Another restaurant with team service, so no one knows what the other one is doing. One team member took the order for coffee and brought it out before the main server took the dessert order. Will go back, but don't like the feeling that I must watch the waitstaff.

    We went on a Monday night the 15th of Sept the last day of our $25 coupon. We came 30 minutes early to catch the Happy Hour. The bar was packed so the hostess seated us in the dining area since we had reservations I guess. No we found out later when another gal came to take our drink order. No Happy Hour here but we could go 3 steps out to the bar? The waiter then comes in and mumbles something about Chef night and $39 entrees all night. We present our coupon and he clears his throat and says no we can not use the coupon! He said he would charge us regular price and then use coupon, but we would pay a lot more. I am an accountant I added it up and we paid $5 more. Not much more but come on! It just did not set well!

    My two friends and I went for our birthday dinners. Menu has just the right amount of selections. Hard to choose as they all looked wonderful. But I opted for my fav. The trio of fish which was salmon, tuna and the best butterfish ever. All three had flavorful sauces and it is served with white rice. The portion isn't huge but turns out to be just right. They serve you edamame with great spices of which had a nice "bite". And for a special treat, they treated each of us with their signature dessert which is a melting chocolate soufflé with a side of vanilla ice cream. A great way to end a meal. The service was top notch.

    We arrived about 15 minutes early for oru reseration, and we were seated promptly. We were a party of 4 adults and a four year old. Almost immediately, a bowl of edamame and s plate for the 4 year olf with some raw veggies and a small cheese quesadilla showed up complimentary. What a nice welcome! We were worried the restaurant would frown on having a child there, even a well behaved one, but that certainly wasnt the case. The food was terrific, and our server Kelly couldnt have been nicer (even when one of the ADULTS knocked over a glass of red wine on the white tablecloth, LOL). It was a wonderful evening.

    The food was excellent - presentation is outstanding. Fish Trio was exceptionally good...didn't seem like 9 ounces of fish but nonetheless it was outstanding. Butterfish is incredibly good! Our server was excellent, very knowledgeable & personable - great service! Pricey so we will only go for special occasions.

    Hard to believe after 14 years we were very disappointed. Family always loved the place, this time to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. Considering it's "off-season" down here in Naples and the restaurant was only half-full, you would think our server would leap into action upon seeing a table of 6 customers. It took 20 minutes for her to even greet us, then she was very late with wine, appetizers and food. After dessert menus, she never returned, just delivered the 3 lava cakes we ordered in advance. Worst service I've ever had at Roy's, absolutely shocking. For the money we spent (well over $500) maybe we can get a waitress that's not completely disinterested? After all these years, we don't know if we will ever go back.

    Our first time visit to the Bonita Springs Roy's won't be our last. From our first contact at the front door to the last contact on our way out, my wife and myself felt like we're treated like old friends. The staff couldn't have been more attentive. Not overly but every contact was with a staff member that wanted us to have a great experience. And we did. A great wine list. Great specials. Interesting menu with many different items. All with great service. We will return. Oh and don't forget the dessert.

    Dining is always wonderful at Roy's. We have taken many visitors there and have yet to be disappointed. There menu is always changing with new and innovative items. It is a great place for small groups and special occasions. The service is always superb. My only complaint would be about people who bring their children to Roy's. It is not a family style restaurant and children inevitably ruin a lovely evening for other diners!

    We dined with you this past Saturday night around 7 PM. We were seated in a smaller dining room off of the main dining room and it was almost as if we weren't in the restaurant. Was the main dining room full? I wasn't informed of the various seating options when I made my reservation for a party of two for Saturday night and we weren't given an option when we arrived for our 7 PM reservation by the hostess. The food was first rate but the evening would have been much more enjoyable if we were seated in the main dining room. We were visiting from Chicago for the weekend so we won't be coming back to Bonita Springs anytime soon. We do enjoy your location here in downtown Chicago. Sincerely, Mike McCahon
