Diner Reviews
  • "The wait staff at Roy's were very caring and did not seem o rush us through anything. They were most congenial. The food was delicious, although it could have been served a little warmer. However, that being said, the entire experience was wonderful."

  • "1st time there and we loved it!! From the beginning! We were there early from our reservation and they seated us right away anyway! Food was so tasty and portions were on it! From appetizers to desserts we recommend Roy's anytime!"

  • "Another great meal by Roy's - excellent fusion of local cuisine, Asian and western with locally sourced food. Preparation and timing of dishes was flawless"

  • "The food, service and ambience was excellent! We had the prefix meal and our meals were cooked perfectly. We had a fun appetizer, an excellent entree, and a delicious dessert. The only issue we had with the place is that it was cold. We fixed that by ordering tea."

  • "I ate with a group of 6 at Roy's in Oahu. While the food was good, the service was awful. The waiter literally stop taking our order and left for 10 minutes. He went to 2 other tables and took their order before returning. He was distant, got one order wrong and was a very poor waiter. His service was so bad I actually think it had to be intentional. The meal was not as good as a result."

  • "Roy's is always a good "go to" choice. I'm a big fan of his Pasadena location and try to go to the Ko Olina location when we visit our time share. It's nice that it's food is fancy enough to be "cuisine" but still casual enough to see families with small children there. Staff are always friendly and helpful, and abundant, even though they're always very busy."

  • "We came here on a high recommendation and were very disappointed in the food. We went with the waiter's recommendations. Don't get me wrong - our waiter was very good. But the food was not good. Our $52 fish entrée was like eating an oil slick. The only positives I can give are great drinks, good dessert, and the pear salad is delicious, but way overpriced for the portion. What a waste."

  • "After a two week family vacation in Ohau with numerous outing and eating at various island restaurants, my family and I decided to go for supper one last time to celebrate a great trip. Roy's was highly recomended and did not disappoint one bit! The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding and within walking distance from anywhere in the Ko olina area. The prices were extremely reasonable for the high quality of food and is definitley a "have to" place to dine when in the area."

  • "Food-Fresh ingredients; made to order and came out hot; flavors were good, not "exceptional". The tastes were not adventurous enough for our group. I know because I did not hear, "Ooooh! Taste this!" "Mine is really good!" The menu is cryptic (not listing all the ingredients or style of cooking--fried, sauteed, tempura, grilled), so we're relying on our server to know the food. This is a golf course clubhouse, so it's casual. Presentation was casual; pricing not in alignment, even with fresh ingredients. Desserts were better. Service-Friendly. Location-Nice drive out; looking at driving range and beyond gives an outdoor feeling w/out the wind and mist. I have to ask, "Where do the golfers go for pupus and beer?""

  • "We went just to check it out and had an amazing meal. I was surprised the fish wasn't still flopping around on my plate it was so fresh. I had the sashimi appetizer and the hamachi just melted in my mouth. The opakapaka was incredible as well. We will be back!"

  • "We were impressed with the knowledge out waitor had of each dish and the time and pride he took in explaining it to us. This was also a special occation for my son'd 5th birthday. His name being Roy, we told him that that night it was his restaurant. The waitors played along and it turned out to be a great event for him. We had a very enjoyable evening. Thank you"

    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The service was attentive - maybe too attentive. The pace of service for dinner was rushed. The food came quickly and just as the last bite entered our mouths our plates were being cleared. Dessert options quickly followed and within minutes the check was at our table. Too fast for med/high price dinner spot. The quality of the food was good, not great. The Ahi Poke was served with over salted chips which I'd expect to find in a fast food cantina. (The Poke was good) We also tried the crab cakes, which were average compared to a higher end seafood restaurant like California's Ivy on the Shore. They absolutely have the process of serving a meal nailed but lack the extras you'd expect from a better seafood establishment."

  • "We were seated outside but the bright lights and cement made it seem like the tables were on a walkway, not a part of the restaurant. It was strange being in Hawaii and wishing we were sitting inside! My husband loved his steak but my shrimp were overcooked. Also, my Li Hing Mui margarita had an artificial taste (maybe the li hing mui I guess?). A molten chocolate cake for dessert was good though and my daughter's teriyaki chicken plate from the kid's menu was deemed her favourite meal of the trip!"

  • "Every time we come here, the service is alway excellent. We live in the Ewa Complex and when we wanna go to some place fancy & don't want to drive far, we come here. The food is always tasty. Prices are a bit high but well worth it."

  • "Awesome, tasty, vibrant dishes! Great service! Must try!!!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "The restaurant was deserted at lunch time, so service was quite good. Portions were large, but the flavors were not interesting, or particularly well done. Emphasis seemed to be on size and on pleasing children. The menu seemed a tired version of something drawn up thirty years ago, before anyone had heard of sushi or Japanese food. Nothing too objectionable, but not really worth bothering to cross the street for."

  • "We love coming out here to get away from Waikiki and the big city. Always great to see Chef Daryl and Michael our server We will see you soon!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We have eaten at Roy's before and always love it. We were a bit disappointed by this meal. The restaurant wasn't overly crowded yet we were seated beside a large (and loud) group of American businessmen. The ambience of this restaurant wasn't what I expected, it felt very dated and we would have not known we were in Hawaii if it weren't for the address. While I enjoy the food at Roy's (love the butterfish) I don't feel like you get what you pay for. The restaurant is pricey, and the portion sizes seemed to have gotten smaller. Our server was also inattentive - didn't see her too often. There are so many fantastic seafood restaurants in Hawaii that I don't think I'll return to this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Service was top notch! Food was perfectly prepared. Portions were spot on! Came here last year for my wife's bday and returned this year because I knew the quality was going to be great. I have three daughters and the kids meals are insanely awesome! They loved Roy's more than I did! Aloha and mahalo!"

  • "Amazing fresh island fish, friendly attentive team in a casual environment as suited to a golf club location. High value price fixe menu but splurge for a la carte and you'll be glad. Desserts are all quality and not just fussy looking and bland. Generous portions and you can hardly move when you're done. Another telltale of a great restaurant is their coffee - and Roy's rocks it. We are in a nearby hotel and plan to dine here every night til we leave!"

  • "Exceptional dining experience for our family of five. It was our last night and we were looking for a special place to celebrate. Roy's met all of our expectations and more. Great food, exceptional service, beautiful location and peaceful surroundings. Servers were incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the restaurant. Definitely on the high end for price but worth it for the end results."

  • "Great dining experience in Hawaii. Some of the best food we had on our entire vacation. Not inexpensive but very little is in Hawaii"

  • "Awesome. Crew was hospitable, accommodating and attentive. Not cheap, but worth the cost. We are a family of five and they accommodated our children with special requests and attended to every whim. Awesome job! Only our second time at a Roy's, but the first time, about six years ago, was so special that when we had another chance, there was no question."

  • "I've at roy's in Sam Francisco and now in ko olina. The food is mediocre at best with hight prices. We paid over 200 which if just fine when food tastes good but at Roy's it was hardly edible. I ordered the seared garlic shrimp which has no sear on it whatsoever and was rubbery and white. I ate half a shrimp before I asked them to take it away. The waitress said nothing about is everything ok even seeing I didn't eat the meal. Husband had a few more dishes and then we moved to dessert. Why does Roy's call it a souffle when it's clearly hard like a molten lava cake? I just can't wrap my hand around it. Definitely not worth your money."
