    Food and variety were very good Server, started off great, but by end of meal, he was not so good, at all! He didn't take care of us throughout the meal, until the check! The other staff worked well as a team, and were the ones checking on and filling our refills/boxes etc. We had to order dessert through another staff, we had to ask for foods to be boxed....and the server forgot to bring us the boxed foods, we had to ask for our check, and had noted 4 other couples seated after us, had already been able to finish and leave! Had to ask for our check, and our left-overs from our original server, who said "talk to me" when we asked for the check and left overs. Worst, were 2 erroneous charges, further delaying us leaving!!

    We were there as a group, the rib appetizer was fabulous, the pot sticker appetizer was excellent but left you wanting a little bit more. We all had ordered the Mahi Mahi, was excellent but needed a little more salt (all 3 of us added more). Wine list appeared extensive and pricey.

    I don't know if it was because of magical dining, but we have been to Roy's a few times, and this time was not even close to the previous experiences we've had before. The mahi-mahi was so dry and tasteless, and the pineapple upside down cake was chewy, which was disappointing because it's my favorite dessert and had been amazing all the other times I've been here. The salmon was good, and our waiter was friendly. The restaurant was crowded, but that was expected. Unfortunately, it may be a while before I want to come back to this restaurant.

    my first time at Roys, decided to try someplace new for my anniversary, I picked based on the yelp star rating. However it was not a 4 and a half star rating. The food was okay did not leave there saying this would be a place that I would recommend or return. It was a very noisy atmosphere so if you looking for a romantic spot that would not be a restaurant to choose.

    Restaurant Row has gotten a little tired, a little aged, but finding Roy's has definitely given it a recharge. We were thoroughly impressed with the service ... friendly, helpful servers who went over the top when they learned it was our anniversary. Their suggestions were quite helpful. We loved the spiced pork ribs and the caprese salad. The drinks weren't too pricey and were perfectly proportioned. Chef Mac's local creations are impressive, too. We enjoyed the double-cut pork chop and teppanyaki shrimp. We will be back!

    Ate at Roy's during the Orlando Magical Dining Month and everything was excellent. Smaller menu, but full-size offerings. Food was delicious—lobster pot stickers are my favorite. My mahi mahi melted in my mouth, and my husband's filet mignon was done perfectly (medium rare). Service was excellent—some of the best we've ever experienced. We were seated in a side room, so the noise level was lower. Had an early reservation so parking was easy. The restaurant and parking lot were packed when we left about 6:45 pm. We'll definitely return.

    The ambiance is romantic. The food was great, but I was expecting that. What really sets Roy's apart is their service.There were 3 other people who brought food out and refilled drinks, took plates away and set up silverware for us. While customary at fine dining restaurants, the staff was so friendly and courteous that it has to be mentioned. Our waters were never empty and our edamame plate was always full, which was incredibly impressive, considering the 6 of us were hungry.

    When we arrived the seating area was not crowded, but it took the receptionist 3 time to re-ask for our name before being seated. It took awhile for the food to arrive and the manager came by the table to see if they had taken our order. Our server was excellent and polite, not her fault for the delay in receiving food. The appetizers appeared to be pre-made, which was cold and not very tasty. The main entrees were fine. I had the Mahi-Mahi and the fish was cooked perfectly but had no seasoning. Previous two times we ate at Roy's the food was excellent. I'm not sure if we will ever go back.

    I love Roy's. This is the third year we have selected them as one of our Magical Dining experiences, and they do not disappoint! from the lobster potstickers to the filet mignon to the chocolate soufflé, everything was excellent! The potstickers were crisp, and the sauce was amazing. Some of the other "magical" places do not include any sides with their filet. Roy's has mashed potatoes, asparagus and broccolini. As with all their dinners, we were served edame before we ordered. And the melting chocolate soufflé is a guest favorite because it is incredibly good. I highly recommend Roy's for both 'magical dining" and for any night out.

    We've been going to Roy's for years; favorite place in town. So it was quite surprising what happened when we brought 3 friends with us this time around. 1) With a reservation for 8:30 we weren't seated until nearly 9, 2) everyone decided to try the Magical Dining menu, which is a 3 course set menu. To our dismay only 3 deserts arrived for the five of us. When 2 of us sat back and waited for the remainder to arrive we were given a sheepish message by our server - 'we're only serving 1 desert for 2 guests'! No restaurant has split any courses between guests during the last 3 Magical Dinings. Finally, 2 of the 3 checks were incorrect. For a place that we use as the standard to judge other eateries, this was a huge disappointment.

    I chose this restaurant for a business dinner after a lengthy search of Orlando restaurants. I was hesitant to go with a chain, but I had previously had a good experience with Roy's in Baltimore and one in Orlando many years prior. As it turns it out, I am very happy I chose it this time! The service was impeccable. They were present but unobtrusive throughout, they called me by name, and the dinner recommendations were perfect. I had only eaten seafood on previous visits, but this time we both had steaks and they were cooked to perfection. I enthusiastically recommend this restaurant!

    We recently enjoyed a night at Roy's as a result of the Orlando Magical Dining promotion. The food was great, as was the service. Other restaurants we have visited provided lesser quality food and service because of the promotion. So happy to see that Roy's understands the value of enticing new patrons...
