Diner Reviews
  • "Very impressed with the young waiters. They made a very romantic dinner perfect. Great view of the 18th hole and sunset. We had the shortrib and miso-butterfish. Finished it off with a chocolate souffle and espresso martinis!!! Wonderful evening and experience."

  • "The standouts were: Our server Sin was wonderful...knowledgeable and attentive. The lillokoi martini was off the charts yummy The butterfish was extraordinarily delicious. The shrimp were overcooked and a little tough, however the basil lillikoi sauce was very good."

  • "Celebrated my wife's birthday there and it was out first time eating at Roy's in Ko'Olina. Very nice atmosphere with great attentive servers. We ordered the 2 special pre fix dinners they had that night and both were delicious! One of the wine pairing was not great but other than that a great meal. Thanks to the staff for making our dinner so special."

  • "We went to Roy's for my husband's birthday. I had a reservation. We were immediately seated. I was quite impressed with the service. The food was excellent. There's no salt shakers on the table for a reason. The food was perfect, from appetizers to dessert. Nothing was off, missing or required attention. We had a great dinner. I'd absolutely recommend Roy's to friends and family."

  • "We have been to Roy's probably close to 10 times, as long as we have been coming to Ko Olina. It is always a treasured event, highlight of our week. The food never fails to satisfy & although it is pricey, we appreciate the effort that goes into the preparation as well as the quality ingredients. The seafood is incredibly fresh & the combinations of flavors never fails to excite. Our children, now young adults have grown up learning to taste the finest Hawaii has to offer. The service is always top notch & although the surroundings could use an update, we love Roy's!"

  • "Dining on the outside deck/bar was very nice with a great view of the golf course. We had absolutely perfect weather. The service was flawless and everyone very pleasant and helpful. Everything we ordered was unique, and delicious. The bar was pouring really attractive drinks but there was NO alcohol in them. Bring your own booze or stick with soft drinks."

  • "We went to Roy's ( Ko'Olina) for my 65th Birthday (Included Husband, Daughter and (2) 14 year old grandchildren) Service and Food were outstanding! The "Fish" of the Day was superb; enjoyed the creative recipes and plating of the appetizers/ desserts."

  • "Even though this is part of the Ko 'Olina golf course clubhouse, I would call this more of a pub restaurant. My kids dressed up for this meal (neat-casual), and I wore slacks - could have just stayed in our t-shirts and shorts. Casual atmosphere - flip flops and shorts in abundance. Service is very good. Food was decent and service was very good. I ordered the pork belly which was tasty but the meat was a little dry and overdone so had to slather it with sauce. Based upon the service and food alone - it was a decent meal. But WAY overpriced. There was nothing special or memorable to justify the prices."

  • "Excellent all the way around. Cant go wrong with Roy's"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Probably the best meal that I've ever had! We sat outdoors and the live entertainment was enjoyable. The sushi was incredible. The beef short ribs were amazing. Only complaint was that the desserts took 30 minutes to arrive, even with a pre-order when we ordered our main selection."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Had a reservation and were seated promptly by the most unfriendly hostess. Busboy was prompt with waters and edamame but had to ask him to bring kids appie (took 20 minutes - thank God we had the iPad to keep DD busy). 35 minutes later, waiter stopped by to take drink order - asked him for kids menu since we didn't have it yet. Another 20 minutes to get drinks at which time he asked if we were ready to order (Yes!). I mistakenly asked (again) for a kids menu. He left to get it and didn't see him again for another 15 minutes. Once we finally ordered, the food came quickly and was great. Atmosphere at this location is horrible and not at all "Hawaiian". No kids treasure chest and seriously, the rudest hostess' I have ever encountered."

  • "I've been to 9 Roy's locations, all have been great experiences (except for the Newport Beach location) and I would have to rate this one as my favorite. The food and service was excellent. Most fish is caught locally so it is very fresh. The price is a little more expensive than mainland locations, but that is expected. We had a wonderful time here."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We waited a little bit longer than would have liked to for a reservation, but the service and food more than made up for that. As busy as they were on a Sat evening, the food came out very fast, efficiently and hot. Our server and bus service were equally attentive and pleasant."

  • "Server very friendly but forgot wine pairing, but removed from the check."

  • "Overall everyone enjoyed the food; Ribye, Filet, Lamb, Opah. Since it was our anniversary, the staff made a good impression on my family trying to make the evening special. The room is full of energy, so if your looking a quiet dinner..."

  • "From the dirty bathrooms to the Denny's like interior, we were very disappointed in our experience. The food was okay, but the presentation dated. The honey mustard short rib lacked flavor and my butterfish was overcooked. The sides were mushy and also lacked flavor. I wasn't expecting the world as I know it's a chain but this was a let down, especially for the price."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Four friends get together 5 times a year to celebrate birthdays and Christmas. Everyone enjoyed the food, we ordered scallops, short ribs and the ribeye were eye appealing and the taste was very good. A must go west side restaurant!"

  • "We planned a late night dinner, (9:00pm) at Roy's KoOlinga and were disappointed with the confusion on the dishes we ordered. I ordered swordfish and received moonfish--two managers and our waiter debated at the table on what I was served and what time that evening the restaurant changed the special. The food that was served was good, but they need help in their service structure."

  • "Our family dined at Roy's while vacationing at Aulani. The ambiance, service, and food could not have been any better. Meals were delicious and the desserts were mouthwatering. Will definitely go back when visiting Hawaii!"

  • "My friends were here from out of town to get married at the resorts accross the street. Roy's was recommended to me by some coworkers and they delivered! It was quiet, romantic and had awesome views of the golf course. The food portions were large enough for a large adult male and were absolutely delicious. Although my guests had no room for desert, Roy's staff brought them out a nice tart with "Congratulations" etched in the plate with chocolate... classy! Great date destination."

  • "If you live in Central, Leeward, or the Northshore side of Oahu, you'd have to drive all the way into the Downtown area for a special dining experience. Not anymore. Roy's Ko'Olina has got everything you need to impress, romance, and satisfy any foodie's cravings this side of the island; without the long drive, long lines, and parking hassle. You can dress up, or down; I've seen shorts w/slippers there. Service is excellent, my 6 refills of iced tea never got bellow half. The server was very knowledgeable, and her recommendations was spot on. They do have a kids menu! Great resort area to walk it all off after (Aulani has awesome grounds to explore)."

  • "Had lunch at Roy's Koolina. Service was great and food terrific. It was my brothers birthday and we wanted to go somewhere special. The staff made it memorable with a free rib pupu and a special dessert. We will definitely return."

  • "Went for lunch this time & everything was great. We had asst'd appetizers, including the canoe for 2, drinks, lunch & the Painters Pallette for dessert---5 kinds of sorbet on a shortbread "pallette". Food was delicious, as usual. It seems like there are not as many choices for lunch entrees as there are for dinner. Next time, we would probably order more appetizers. Our servers name was Sharae(hope I spelled it right) and she was so friendly and efficient, always checking to see if we were okay or if we needed anything. It was surprisingly not too busy at 1pm. so we probably got more attention than usual but she was wonderful anyway! We will definitely ask for her the next time we go back. Roys never disappoints!"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary and thoroughly Loved our dinner. We don't have a lot of money so dinner at Roy's is a once a year treat for us that we Really enjoy."

  • "The food was delicious, I had the lamb and it was cooked and plated (it all looked like art work) to perfection. I was very surprised and very pleased. My wife had an amazing looking seafood dish and she enjoyed it but not as much as I loved my food. The mushroom, French bread and blue cheese appetizer was very good as well. The desert was meh...not even average but everything else was top notch. It's pretty pricey, especially if you drink a few alcoholic drinks and get appetizers. Our bill for 2 was around $192 and for the most part it was worth it."

  • "From start to finish, this was the best! They had a great Keki menu which made my kids (and me) happy from the start. My husband and I shared the Hamachi Crudo and were delighted! He had the Ribeye and I had the Uncle Roy's combo. They were both cooked to perfection and presented beautifully! Finally, you can't leave without having the Apple Banana Bread Pudding. It was sublime! Be prepared to pay--our dinner was nearly $400 with the wine but worth every penny!!"

  • "We usually have a really good time at Roy's in Hawaii - usually in Poipu on Kauai. We had last been to this Roy's about 13 years ago. The food quality remains very good, but service was slow, forgetful - possibly due to heavy crowds due to the Holiday weekend. Very noisy around us. Restaurant might benefit from some modifications to cut down on sound level. Lots of hard reflective surfaces for sound to bounce around. Made it hard to have a conversation. On the whole a good experience - the food saved the day."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Three of us dined there. The butterfish and seafood duo were excellent, as wee the appetizers- beet salad and Chinese Spring rolls. The only disappointing dish was the ribeye - about 1/4 of it was in edible fat, but the rest of it was good."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We had the Dim Sum appetizer for 2 and another sushi roll...the food is AMAZING! The keiki meals include a appetizer, drink, entree and dessert so a really good value. We followed up with the chocolate souffle and upside down pineapple cake (drool). Our server was very attentive and great with suggestions for first time diners. Can't wait to go back and will be recommending Roy's to friends and family."

  • "we enjoyed a dinner break away from the Aulani resort across the road. The meal catered for my wife, myself and our 5 year old son. The kids menu was great, it was bought out with our appetizers. I tried the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked and flavoursome. I'm from New Zealand where we pride ourselves on our lamb and this was as good as home I'm on a paleo diet so this fitted in perfectly. My wife had the chicken which she was impressed with but the chocolate soufflé was the highlight for her. Good wine list and the service was great. There's a lovely view over the golf course, which made me confirm that next trip I'll be bringing the clubs!"
