  • Birthday Celebration.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    The family from up north comes down every Thanksgiving. My birthday is always that week and I always choose Roy's. This year there were only four of us but we all have our favorites. For me it is the Butterfish, my husband the beef ribs and my daughter Ahi Tuna. My granddaughter had the chicken from the kid's menu. We all had the chocolate soufflé. Roy's is almost always the only restaurant where we order dessert--always the soufflé. Roy's makes a celebration very special.

    This was our first time at Roy's and we are year round locals. In order to give a fair evaluation, we have to eat at Roy's another time when it is quiter and much more relaxed than it was this night. The noise level was not at all to our taste and the meal just seemed rushed. Honestly it was too noisy and too crowded to write a great review. We will be back.

    Roy's provided wonderful birthday dinner for my dad. The server acknowledged my dad's birthday when we were seated. They took our picture and gave us the picture in a frame. Then the most delicious dessert. Our server Jason was wonderful from start to finish! Thank you Roy's!

    I took my three daughters here during a girls weekend. It was one of the highlights of our weekend together. Two of them had never been to Roys so I had fun experiencing it from their viewpoints. I'm sure we will be back on our next trip to the Naples area. Our waiter was helpful with menu suggestions and favorites, as well as superior customer service. His sense of humor was an added plus that added to an already amazing dining experience.

    Dined on 11/4/2014
    We have dined at Roy's many times, and always take our guests there. The last time we were there, the menu had changed, and it looks great. I had a special dish, which I "beg" the chef to make a permanent one on the menu. I had Red Snapper Fillet, with a cajun sauce, over cheesy grits. It was fabulous, the best dish there so far and that is saying a lot, since they have so many outstanding dishes. Roy's is a place to count on for good food, good service and a good time

  • Dinning at Roys
    Bertha
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We have always enjoyed dinning at Roy's, but this Saturday it was just not what I remembered. I suggested we meet with friends at Roys for dinner, but the noise level was so very bad that we really did not have a good evening. The food, the service is always good but if you can't have a conversation with the people at your table, then there is no point in dinning there.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    It's hard to believe that Roy's, in Bonita Springs, FL, could get any better but it does each time we visit. The food has always been cooked and presented to perfection. The Naples/Bonita Springs area has many restaurants, however, none can compare to the quality of Roy's food, the presentation, the service by the entire staff. If you're a meat and potato or unadventurous kind of person, do not go to Roy's, however, if you enjoy experimenting and appreciate different food, Roy's is a must. Having said that, maybe they could convert that meat and potato person! Cocktails have always been generous and yummy. People that haven't been there have the impression that it's expensive, yes it is but not for what you get. Thank you Roy's.

    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.

    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.
