Diner Reviews
  • "We always make a point to have at least one dinner here every trip we make to Orlando. Their steaks and seafood are cooked to perfection. They stand behind their dishes which alway amazes me. If you're not happy they will make it right. We ordered the filet mignon, petite filet and butter poached lobster, and Roy's trio from their regular menu, and the prosciutto wrapped shrimp from the chef's menu, everyone was more than happy with their choices. We also ordered the spicy korean chili fried rice and the truffled bacon mac and cheese, both were incredible. Make sure you save room for their pineapple upside down cake, chocolate souffle, and creme brule."

  • "Roy's is a favorite of mine, although I don't go that often. Menu varies so there's always something new to try. Made a reservation online and table was ready as soon as we arrived. Food was excellent. Service very attentive with good recommendations."

  • "We are in Orlando frequently and dine at Roy's almost every time we are in town. LOVE the food, service and the GM. He is top notch and runs a great group. I brought 5 customers with me on this particular trip and they all loved it."

  • "One could do a dinner by trying all the apps. The Filet Mignon is excellent for not being a Steakhouse."

  • "We were able to secure a table about 20 min prior to our reservations. We immediately ordered drinks and a canoe appetizer. After another 10-12 minutes the waiter returned to explain the menu and we placed our order. Upon finishing our order, the waiter asked if we wanted to try an appetizer. This was a hint that they forgot to put in our initial appetizer order. After about 25 minutes upon our initial order for drinks and apps, the canoe arrived. The only problem was the canoe had items that weren't listed on the menu. I'm not sure exactly what they substituted, but it wasn't something we expected or liked. So our $28 app wasn't as good as we hoped. My potatoes on the Mahi Mahi weren't cooked and the filet had silver skin on it."

  • "Roy's has never disappointed. The chef's creation Snapper that was sausage crusted with a spicy cream sauce was one of the best fish dinners I have had."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Roy's never disappoints with the quality of their food. Hands down, the Misoyaki Butterfish is the best! I have to admit though, I was a bit disappointed that our waitress did not acknowledge that we are true and devoted Roy's patrons. We have visited every Roy's in Florida and every Roy's on Oahu, with many visits to this one and the one in Tampa. Usually, we have been given a complimentary dessert as regulars and for being part of the Roy's Ohana. We also ordered the Poke appetizer - excellent, but it does seem that the amount of ahi is decreasing as time goes by. The chocolate soufflé was delightful as always. We had brought a new guest with us, who is now also a devoted Roy's fan!"

  • "The food was outstanding, as usual. This time we had braised beef ribs - excellent. The bar food was great too. I always go to Roy's when I'm in Orlando - have been going for years. I only wish they still had their restaurant in Atlanta."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Where to begin, first of all, our waiter was Michael, might be the best service I've ever received at a restaurant, in the world. Guy was, polite, helpful, clear and fast, but, we felt bad, my GF paid the check behind my back and ended up giving him a pretty lousy tip by mistake. Later this week we are gonna eat nearby and go ask for him to say thanks and tip what he deserves, so he does continue to provide the same quality of service to future patrons. Oh, and order the butterfish."

  • "Last night of a week at Disney, we wanted to get off the Disney property and have a nice dinner. Roy's was the perfect place! Gorgeous decor, it took me right back to Roy's in Honolulu 15 years ago. The service was impeccable and every bit of food was delicious!! Unique combinations of sushi rolls started the meal. Spicy fried rice was great and the Ono was incredible. Chocolate soufflé and lemon box cake finished the meal perfectly."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Two appetizers, three entrees, and two desserts took approximately two hours... unacceptable. The samosa appetizer was very oily/greasy, the "butterfish" did not taste fresh, and the good was generally forgettable. I would look elsewhere considering this place is quite expensive for Orlando."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I visit every time I come in to take care of my mom. The crew at Roy's always gives me a warm welcome back to the ohana (family) with their wonderful aloha spirit and superior, friendly service. This is my "other home," and I love them!"

  • "I had been to Roy's on Maui and LOVED it. My husband and I decided to go to Roy's Orlando for our 31st anniversary. Whereas my husband thought his ahi was ok, the trio I ordered was not so great. The trio included butterfish, mahi and salmon. First, the pieces were ridiculously small. The butterfish had so much teriyaki you could not taste the fish. I had asked for all the fish to be cooked through, and the mahi came very raw, they took that back on a separate plate to cook it more. The salmon I got was disappointing. Right now is prime salmon time. Copper River King and Coho are in season, and they served farmed Atlantic salmon...REALLY?? Expected more"

  • "Great food service and enjoyed an excllent glass of wine at Aloha Hour! I was surprized to see one of my favorite wines from Joel Gott at a great value!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "However, my sea bass really needed a dipping sauce. I liked the edamame they brought out for the table. We were visiting Orlando and ate there and I wish there was a Roy's where we live."

  • "Had passed Roys many times on Sand Lake Rd. Finally went in. Great ambiance but the real highlight was the menu. So many things I could have ordered. I had the seafood hot pot. The seafood was delicious. There was a large piece of boc-choy which was good but hard to eat. Service was very attentive. We had several managers come over ensure everything was going well."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Roy's Orlando and we will definitely return. Can't wait to return! Our server Mark was exceptional. Beginning with the complementary edamame and cheese quesadillas for the kids, our entire experience was a pleasant one. Standout dishes included Misoyake Butterfish, Prosciutto Wrapped Shrimp with Cheddar Grits, and Andouille Crusted Mahi, and the Bacon Truffle Mac and Cheese could be habit forming. They seem to understand that the service is a critical component to the whole restaurant experience."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Roy's was unique and perfect in every way. From slight differences on classic dishes, to out of this world creations, Roy's blew our expectations out of the water. We were searching for other Roy's locations before we left Roy's Orlando."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Roy's is consistently wonderful - as has happened now many times, I took 2 friends who had never been there. They just loved it - everything. the "hip" ambience, the food, the service, the menu options. LOVE IT!"

  • "We celebrated our mom's 75th Birthday here and it was the perfect choice. They had a bouquet of flowers for the birthday girl and gave her a lava cake for dessert. Our server was perfect, who quickly resolved a small mishap from the kitchen. Everyone loved their entrees...and there was enough variety so that all 9 of us got what we wanted. We ordered a variety of appetizers, cocktails and entrees. I had the chef's prix fixe meal and for $35 it was a good deal... app was short ribs dim sum, entree salmon (perfectly poached) on a bed of asian greens, and carrot cake for dessert. My nephew had the sampler with fish and beef, my niece the bone-in rib eye. My brother had two sushi rolls, and mom enjoyed her scallops."

  • "Not really much I can say about Roy's other than we go there every time we are in the Orlando area. Everything was great as usual from food to service"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The bar is a hot spot and they have a popular happy hour! They serve you a bowl of edamame to snack on with your drink, while deciding on your meal. The seafood is fresh and delicious. We've added Roy's to our list of favorites whenever we visit Orlando."

  • "We've dined at various Roy's locations on the mainland and in Hawaii. They have a "new" menu or at least new for us. Hurray - not so much seafood (we're both allergic). Lots of chicken, pork, beef. All of the flavors were inventive and delicious. Service from our server, Brandon, was top-notch. One of the managers, Al, made a point to stop by and check on us as well. Try the Short Rib & Mushroom appetizer, just wonderful. They also have a great-tasting side dish of Mac N Cheese which goes with anything on the menu. Our cocktails were never empty before Brandon was checking on us and even the hostess staff were friendly and efficient. We were thrilled AND will be back SOON!! "

  • "Each time I visit Orlando, Roy's a one place that comes to mind for me. This trip, we received wonderful service from James. We enjoyed our seafood dishes and ended with the delicious chocolate lava dessert. My only one comment for improvement is the ambience. The place needs more natural lighting. "

  • "We move out of this area three years ago. Been a fan of Roy's for many years and visited Roy's at this location many times. So being in town for a short visit, we did not want to leave town without a stop at Roy's. What a disapointment. Asked the waiter if we could substitute the appetizer offer in the fix priced menue, his answer was a NO! The serivce was extremly slow. Waiter warned us that the plate is hot, but we found the food cold. This is not the Roy's I remenber from my years in Orlando. "

  • "Previous visits to Roy's were tops. I remembered being surprised with little bonuses of culinary delight being delivered between courses with "compliments of the chef", even an extra dessert, just so that my party could sample both offerings. These extras made the premium prices feel like a better value. Unfortunately those days seem to have passed. What was ordered was exactly what we received, at the same premium price. Some items were excellent, others just ok. The service was solid, but bordered on over attentive. Call me old fashioned, but I normally like to pull in my chair and relax for 45 seconds before being presented with edamame, introduced to my three waiters and asked if I'd care to be walked through the menu."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "The food at Roy's is always well prepared and well thought out, I wish we could say the same about the service. The wine came out after our food did which was not good as the food took 15-20 minutes to arrive. We asked why the wine was delayed and we were informed that they did not chill it and they were waiting to chill it prior to serving it. They mixed up the order of one of our party and it took 14 minutes to get coffee after dinner and they only brought 3 of the 4 that were ordered and we had to wait another 10 minutes to get the 4th. All in all not a good showing for the wait staff. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I continue to be amazed at how this restaurant chain continues to provide one of the best overall experiences around. The food is always top-notch, and the service simply can't be improved upon. When you are tired of paying top dollar prices for terrible service, this group of restaurants will not disappoint and will help you restore your confidence in fine dining."

  • "The food and service were excellent, it was very noisy and there were children sat behind us at 9pm at night. I have been to Roys in Vegas and the ambience was different, more sedate."

  • "Every time we are in Orlando, we make Roy's a destination for a fantastic dinner and never have we been disappointed. My wife and I sat at bar and the bartenders exceeded our expectations! They took the time make some recommendations from the menu and even explained differences with some local Gins. We got picture taken and received a "Roy's" frame to remember the evening. Great Job all around and that is why we return each time in town!"

  • "We have been to Roy's many times from the early days in Hawaii. We visited the Orlando location once last year and really enjoyed the local flavors that reminded us of home. But this second visit left us wondering what happened to the aloha. Unfriendly and inaccurate service. Average food quality. Overall a disappointing experience. Not worth the money."

  • "If you've never been to a Roy's...First of all you MUST go! The Roy's in Orlando is always Fantastic! Any Roy's nationwide is outstanding but the Orlando Roy's never disappoints! For a Hawaiian Fusion cuisine restraunt the Orlando location's Chef-Partner has a Cajun Flair to his menu! Make no mistake Everything is unbelievable!! "

  • "I've been to multiple Roys and this was the worst location I have been to. Specifically the service was slow and the food was poorly prepared. I order the bone in Ribeye medium well. The outside was charred and inside half was well done and the other half was blood red. Our appetizer of vegetable spring rolls came out 15 minutes after our kids appetizer which was 30 minutes after ordering. I enjoy a long dinner but the service was off and not in coordination with the dining experience I expected. "

  • "We had a bad experience at the Chicago, IL Roy's. When visiting Orlando we wanted to give Roy's another try. We were so happy we did. From the greeting to the waiters to the Manager it was a wonderful experience. The food is so goooood! We decided from this dining experience we were going to take our friends back for another evening. It was just as good and just as wonderful. It turned a bad experience from Chicago,IL into the BEST experience in Orlando, FL. We will visit it every year when we come back. YUMMY!"
