Reasonable prices. Can't wait to try their happy hour.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRoy's at the JW MarriottIt doesn't get much better than this! If you are outside or inside, the ambiance, scenery and great food makes for a terrific night out.
Service is always top-notch and it is pretty cool, that you don not have to listen to a whole list of "specials", because all the "specials" are already on the regular menu! Consistency is what you get here, whether you are in Hawaii, Spanish Bay or Scottsdale.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThey had good service withThey had good service with good selection and very good food.

The waiter recommended a lovely white wine to accompany our meal, which complemented our dinner perfectly. Do not miss the chocolate mousse cake. Heavenly!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery high quality world classVery high quality world class food. A few comments, the "fusion" doesn't really work on the desserts. Do not go here unless you value quality over quantity.
Their parking validation only covered 1/2 the cost of parking, which seemed a bit petty after spending $800 for 9 people (cocktails, appetizers, dinner, dessert and tip)5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMScottsdale MagicI love Roy's.
