  • Really Disappointed

    We dine out a lot, and we are always in search of restaurants that are not the typical Steakhouse or TexMex genre. Roy's is one of the few that could be called Hawaiian "Fusion" with whatever. For example. the Calamari had some sweet and sour sauce (calamari was great by the way but I could do without the sauce), lobster potstickers were expensive and incredibly bland with some cream sauce, Tempura Alaskan cod definitely was not tempura batter and more like the batter in Fish'n'Chips without the chips. The somewhat expensive "Halibut chef special" was so overcooked, my husband asked them to take it back...AND..he never does this. It was truly a disappointing outing with friends. It was not a busy not so there is no excuse.

    When you pay $30+ for a piece of fish from a place that "specializes" in great seafood, you expect near-perfection. What we got was nothing close. My wife and I both ordered fish -- she ordered the trio and i ordered the opakapaka. While both had pretty good flavor, both dishes were overcooked. After reading other reviews I think this is typical for this place.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. We had been only once before, and found the food, service, and atmosphere to be fantastic. Very reminiscent of our Honeymoon dining in Hawaii. On my Open Table reservation I had made a note that it was our anniversary (and we had honeymooned in Hawaii). When we got to our nice, quiet booth in the corner we discovered they had created a nice card for us on a menu that congratulated us on our anniversary. Our hostess and waitress were very aware of our anniversary and congratulated us as well. The food was fantastic as always (Butterfish! Drool....). They even gave us free dessert and a free CHAMPAGNE TOAST! Incredible service and a memorable experience! 5 STARS!

    Rich, rich, rich. Gorgeous food but you kind of have to watch how you order it. Everything looked so good on the menu, I indulged on every course. By the time dessert came I had really over-done it. The lobster pot pie is excellent but very creamy and rich so have it with a salad instead of the fried tempura vegetables like I did, lol. The order-in-advance desserts were fantastic (I had the pineapple cake w/cocnut ice cream, wow)

    I had always heard great things, so was excited to travel north and check our Roy's So very much was wonderful, beginning with the team. From the hostess to our waiter and everyone who came by was friendly, happy, accommodating and seemed proud of Roy's. The drinks and the food were wonderful as well. I liked the interesting and unique selection and both of our meals were superb. Roy's is clearly something special. Despite all this, I will think twice about going back. We were in the main dining room and it was LOUD, especially when a family with a baby was seated right next to us. Roy's is pricey and I did not like paying the price in an atmosphere that was reminiscent of the Magic Kingdom. Back to Dallas!

    We had heard about Roy's for years and finally made it for my Birthday! What a complete pleasure! The calamari and pork rib appetizers were wonderful, my scallops were the Best, and the pineapple dessert with fabulous coconut ice cream was a perfect way to end our visit. The service was extraordinary. My son had the fillet mignon and my husband tried the fish trio and they both reported a double thumbs-up! We will be going back.

    I have frequented this restaurant several times with my wife. I have even held a 20 party birthday party here. I love the ambiance and decorum, but after this visit on the ride home, my wife and I were thinking the same thing. We were searching for the taste and experience that we had on our first visit two years ago. On 3 separate occasions we have had to have steaks re-cooked which lead to one of us waiting on the others meal. The rib appetizer seems to keep getting fattier and fattier. Management does address the issues but I don’t like to seem like a needy customer each visit. Still searching for that initial high and excitement about Roy’s.

    My family and I like to go to Roy's whenever we're missing Hawaii. The seafood is fresh and always well prepared and the menu has a great diverse selection. It really does replicate the cuisine from Hawaii well. The staff is also always friendly and very accomodating when we bring the kiddos.

    Roy's never fails to deliver. It was our 23rd anniversary. They had a Happy Anniversary sign at the table. The food at Roy's is consistently great. I really enjoy the 'butterfish' and my wife had the ribeye. Both very flavorable. We usually go for the chocolate souffle for desert but this time we opted for the pineapple upside down cake with coconut ice cream. As our kids would say...OMG! It was fabulous. Thanks to Roy's for an enjoyable evening.

    This was our first time at Roy's after wanting to eat there for a long time. It was worth the experience. We were greeted by the host and immediately seated. Our waiter gave a good overview of the menu, gave us complimentary appetizer as first timers. The canoe appetizer we ordered was very good. The seared ahi was excellent. The mahi was a bit over done but was still good. Overall, the experience was very good. James (waiter) was helpful and attentive but not over powering. He understood the menu well and offered advice though not pushing what he felt best. We will go back.

    The service was very good as were the salads and sauces the entrees came with. But there were too many negatives for us to return. It started with the complimentary edamame which was way over cooked and cold. Then I ordered the Ahi cooked medium. It came seared on the outside and raw on the inside - not what I wanted. But the overall negative was the portion sizes - they were tiny. We both ordered fish entrees and with both, the pieces were very small. In addition the side vegetables were mere slivers of their former selves - literally. Perhaps the most telling thing was the waiter kept bringing up dessert (when we sat down, when we ordered our entrees, after the entrees and brought the menu regardless).

    I've done Roy's on multiple occasions and they are consistently at the top of their game. The menu may change regularly but the quality of service and the dishes prepared remains impeccable… even if I usually cop out and order the bone-in ribeye every time I eat here. The service is attentive without being overwhelming and each member of the staff makes you feel as welcome as if they have known you for years. The best advice I could give is don't go overboard with appetizers (ribs or lobster potstickers are both exceptional starters) and save room for that pineapple cake dessert. That thing is so tempting that I am convinced it's illegal in at least 48 states. No matter what you order, food or drink, Roy's has your requests covered.

    We were seated promptly at a great table overlooking the restaurant. Service was great. May have ordered the wrong thing, didn't really enjoy my dinner. I like, not love asian fusion. Wanted light fare and wasn't to much to choose from on appetizer menu. My husband had the chef special and said it was really good.

    We dined during restaurant week and I guess my only "complaint" isn't really a complaint at all. It was so much food. We each had to pack some up to take home and we were still uncomfortably full when we left. Everything tasted fantastic. I have to say, the leftovers the next day tasted almost as good as when it was brought to our table.

    We drive over to Roy's for special occasions and wished we lived closer. It is truly an unintimidating former dining experience. There is nothing ordinary about the menu or incredible flavors, yet the food is not something you receive on your plate and think, "what is THAT?" Amazing. Been a Roy's fan since 2003.

    The only thing I requested on line was a Romantic Table. We were sat at was the most un-romantic tables in the restaurant. It was a table in the back "wall" of the restaurant where one of us has zero view. We did not complain, but really, this is the table they chose for us as "Romantic"? Within 20 minutes, 2 "Romantic" booths opened, why not call us and ask us to move our redo for 20 min later to achieve our request? Mai Tai was the best we have ever tasted! Butter Poached Lobster and Filet. She likes her meat cooked through, but it was shoe leather and burnt. Server said the lobster would be removed from shell, butter poached and placed back in. It was never butter poached, it was overcooked in an oven and tough. Pink Snapper - fabulous!

    We dine at Roy's for special occasions (budget doesn't allow this to be a more frequent choice) and are always satisfied. The service is excellent and the food is wonderful. You must try the Misoyaki Butterfish, Braised Short Ribs, and Szechuan Pork Ribs (appetizer that could easily be a meal with a nice side dish added). There is also a Trio dish with the above butterfish plus the salmon and mahi mahi in smaller portions, a perfect fish sampler entree! The molten chocolate cake is also divine if your stomach can handle that at the end!

    I took my husband out as a special treat to him. While I'm apprehensive to seafood restaurants, I knew he'd love it. So I bit the bullet. Both he and our waiter, Tyler helped me find something new besides my "go to" meat item, which they had a good selection. I've got to say I really enjoyed myself to the new taste. While he was in heaven. The staff was friendly and attentive. We definitely come back. I'd love to try the Lobster Pot Pie!

    The food was good, but the service from our waiter was disappointing. He just seemed completely put out. And I'm note sure why he made some judgement from the start towards us. We noticed that he behaved much politer and friendlier to the table next to us. This is an example of how service from your waiter can pretty much ruin the night. Food was good, bartender was very nice during our pre dinner drinks.
