Roy's Newport Beach
Rush hourNot our usual great experience from Roy's. the usual attention to detail was replaced by a feeling of "are you done yet?" Felt like they were more interested in getting us out, than our dining experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceThe Newport Beach Roy's is top notch. The food was delicious, well prepared, and innovative. I had the shrimp appetizer, trout and sorbet all from the prixe fixe menu. Roy's has a well trained staff who are knowledgeable about their menu selections, food allergies and demonstrated they can accomodate for the most picky diner.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMamazingfood was amazing, service was wonderful. the short ribs were so soft & so tasty! definitely pay for the quality here. the butterfish melts in your mouth! soooo good. definitely love to come back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative SeafooderWe've dined at Roy's over 100 times over the past years and it is always very good. This time around we had the calamari and the lobster potstickers. We like the old sauce called firecracker for the potstickers and always ask for it. For entrees we had the miso-crusted butterfish and the Hawaiian swordfish. The only minus was that the swordfish was a little dry. We always have the lava cake for dessert which is fantastic. Service is always great and the restaurant was entirely filled by 6:15, most of which were Mother's Day guests.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent Quality and ServiceWe've been this the Newport Beach Roy's several times, and just a few weeks ago, at the one in Rancho Mirage. It is very nice to be able to go to a place and know that you will receive the same, quality food and service. Roy's does not disappointment - and we've been to almost all of his restaurants in CA, NV, AZ and, of course, Hawaii!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFab for birthdaysThey do an amazing job on birthdays. The special menu, the glitter on the table, the decorated plate with cake and the group photo in a frame makes it worth going. The service is great and the happy hour is fabulous as well. We love to come.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was really nice for I wasIt was really nice for I was meeting a client for dinner and was not in a big rush for it had been a couple of years since I had seen Joan. We ended up only having appetizers and three glasses of wine, not a big tab for a nice four top booth that they put us in after we requested a table change. What was really nice is that our server let us enjoy the time and did not rush us at all. She appeared to be training a gal and needless to say she was setting a great example. Thank you for a wonderful experience.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT SERVICE.WE RECENTLY CELEBRATED OUR 49TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT ROYS IN NEWPORT. WE WENT EARLY TO HAVE A FEW DRINKS AT THE BAR. HEATHER, OUR BAR GIRL WAS AWESOME. THEN WE WENT TO OUR TABLE AND HAD A WONDERFUL DINNER, THE BLACKENED AHI. GREAT FOOD, GOOD TIME.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI have loved Roy's for yearsWe have a home in Maui and use to live there ... We went to the Roy's Kihei often...now we moved back to the mainland we spend our special occasions at Roy's... To feel the Aloha!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationWe went to celebrate my birthday as well as my 4 year old's birthday. Our menus were customized to wish us a happy birthday. Confetti was on our table. The kids' meals were free as we are part of their mailing list. We got special birthday desserts and the kids' lived having their names spelled out in chocolate syrup. Our waiter Rich lives children and really took care of their needs. He is amazing and we will request him next time we dine. The halibut with a black bean sauce was delicious and the chocolate soufflé is the best I've ever had (and I've had many of them)!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!We requested a booth and got a fabulous one. Some of the tables are right by where people are constantly walking by. Our booth was perfect. We had a fabulous meal and dessert. Hubby and I both had drinks as well. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the next night and ate at the bar. Both ordered completely different meals and enjoyed them just as much!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRoy's Rate's!!!Roy's in Fashion Island, Newport Beach, is a wonderful way to spend an evening ! The food is wonderful and the menu has enough choices that every palette can be satisfied ! If it is a special occasion they go out of the way to make it special, lots of extra touches! The only sad issue about Roy's is that it is not open for lunch !5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointingWhile the service was excellent, the food was just OK. The Mai Tais were ultra fruity and very, very light on the alcohol.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt had been several yearsIt had been several years since I last went the Roy's in Newport as we now live very close to the Anaheim location. The last few times, I had some awkward experiences there. (Brought white wine glasses for champagne / insane wait time for a large party with reservations.) This time was much different and I credit that to Donnie. He came from the Anaheim location and obviously brought the very Ohana spirit that I always find there.
Service was awesome! Our food was fabulous (and the champagne I brought was poured in flutes!)
I definitely look forward to going back to this location (but I won't give up my Anaheim Roy's).5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinner.We had a wonderful dinner. It was my husband's birthday. They put happy birthday glitter on the table and gave us a special menu with a happy birthday note on the inside. Our waiter was excellent and several managers came by to wish my husband happy birthday and to check on us. The staff made our dining experience extra special by going above and beyond.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I go to Roy'sMy wife and I go to Roy's in Newport Beach 4 times a year or more and always enjoy the food and service immensely. Roy's has made it easier for us to go with Fixe Prixe mondays and free corkage on some days. We are retired but still love the finer restaurants. By the way, whatever we have for an entree, we always order the chocolate souffle desert. It alone is worth a trip to Roy's. We have enjoyed Roy's in other locations as well: Pebble Beach and Palm Springs.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, spectacular serviceThe food is always respectable and reliable at Roy's. I've been to several Roy's locations. This was my first time at this location. One of the highlights were the lobster potstickers, which were amazing, along with the complimentary appetizers randomly brought to the table by the chef. This place knows how to treat its guests.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our anniversaryCelebrated our anniversary there and the staff was terrific - very friendly and loved the special attention with photo and Dessert - thanks for a wonderful evening -we always think of Roy's for our special occasions -4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Special OccasionsDining at Roy's is always a pleasure. We were promptly and courteously seated at our reservation time. The waitress was well versed in the wine choices and recommended a very nice wine by the glass. The menu is sophisticated with wonderful sauces. There is no better Ahi to be found. The quality and freshness of the butterfish is outstanding. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries at Roy's because they do a great job of making the occasion special. For example, the menu is personalized with the celebrant's name and congratulations are noted for the specific occasion.Also, the table is decorated with glitter and best of all, after delivering a complimentary dessert, the staff takes your picture!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMi have been coming here fori have been coming here for 10 years and have never bee disappointed. the food and ambience in the newport beach location are superior to those in hawaii and other southern locations.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were impeccable!

I love how special they make each of their guests feel.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining for any (or no)occasionHave dined here on several occasions, as a couple, business hosting, and Holiday office group dinner. Always excellent service, delicious interesting preparations of sushi, rolls, and fish entrees. Have found this consistent at several locations as well. Highly recommended!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite the fact the OpenDespite the fact the Open Table mistakenly made our reservation for before the restaurant actually opened, the staff at Roy's handled it amazingly. This is one of my mother and I's favorite restaurants to go to together and we were proven why on this visit. Everyone and everything was outstanding.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great eateryRoy's is great! Food amazing and service at newport beach location was stellar! I has signature drink...and shared the canoe for 2 appetizer along with the chocolate soufflé !3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRoy's never disappoints...haveRoy's never disappoints...have been to several locations, and the food is consistently excellent. This time we had the lobster potstickers and spicy ahi tempura roll at Aloha Hour, and they were both fabulous! The Hawaiian butterfish was literally melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the lava cake was,as always,amazing. Took off points for seating our party of two in an annex room next to a party of 10...which made it a little loud. Other than that, I would definitely recommend!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNabila YousefThis is my 10 visit to Roy's and everytime they out do theselves. Great place.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. EveryoneFood was outstanding. Everyone was smiling and very friendly. Manager personally greeted all of the customers.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the sashimi and lobsterHad the sashimi and lobster macaroni and cheese. The sashimi was soft, but the taste wasn't that good. Lobster mac-n-cheese was fantastic, totally worth going back for. Then had the night special, butter fish with beef short ribs. Everything was cooked well but the sauce on the fish was a little off to me. Short ribs were great though. Then had the molten chocolate souffle for dessert, which was amazing. Service was great, ambiance was great. Price was a little high, but I would go back in a heart beat.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Roy's for my mother'sWent to Roy's for my mother's birthday and it was great. It was a Monday so we had the prix fixe menu, which was wonderful. I love that Roys has a very good vegetarian menu as well - I did the vegetarian prix fixe. They kindly acknowledged my mom's birthday both verbally and on the menu, they took a photo and brought out a special dessert, while NOT singing anything, which we were grateful for. The food was delicious all around. For those vegetarians out there the vegetarian risotto is extraordinary (for risotto). We also had salmon and lamb chops and both were great. We finished off with creme brulee and the signature chocolate souffle, which is my favorite. All in all a wonderful meal.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRefound GemWhat a great restaurant, we had eaten at Roys previously and for no reason did not frequent it.
