Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to Roy's almost everywhere and this was my first venture to the SF location. My only criticism ever of Roy's was the locations of his restaurants. The only 2 standout locations I've ever been to were the Pebble Beach location at the Spanish Bay Inn and The Tavern at the Princeville Golf Course. Nonetheless, the food was amazing. Ahi appetizers were delish followed by the main course, "buttahfish" (pronounced as if with a Hawaiian accent)."

  • "It's been sometime since I've been there and found the quality of food and service had gone down. My prior experiences delivered a higher standard."

  • "I have had many lunches at Roy's over the years; usually, someone else makes the reservations so i have not been called on for a review until now. it is an excellent restaurant with great food, service that is both efficient and friendly and a large dining room that is very attractive and comfortable. The food is imaginative and well-prepared and it is possible for two or more diners to order enough appetizers and sampler plates to give a clear experience of the kitchen staff's expertise. I love it and look forward to my next visit."

  • "I felt it was very wrong to accept a reservation for 6:30 (made at 6:15) and then when we arrived on time, to explain we would have to wait for 1/2 hour for the table. It got worse. The hostess explained that they had a private party reservation for 40 so the usual number of tables were not available and "I guess we should have blocked Open Table""

  • "We had just eaten at Roys Rancho Mirage and it was 10 times better - food and service. The osso bucco was bland. The dinner plates were so hot that they kept cooking the food - my butterfish was mushy. Our coffee was served warm - NOT hot. We mentioned this to the waitress and our refills were also warm and NOT hot. This is the 3rd time we have been disappointed - we will not be back."

  • "My friends and I went to Roy's to celebrate a birthday and between the appetizers at the bar and our dinner in the restaurant area it was a night we won't forget. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful and all of the food was amazing. I would recommend this place for any special occasion."

  • "The food and ambiance at Roy's is always great, but their prices seem to have gotten much higher, recently. It is usually relatively quiet to allow for good conversation, unless the place is full. Then it gets a bit noisier."

  • "Hosted two others at Roy's. Since I've been to several other locations and liked the food and wine list, I figured it to be a no-brainer. It was. Food and service were excellent. The wine list, very large and has interesting finds, is a bit pricy. The noise level is a.bit high. Overall, a great place to host a business dinner."

  • "First visit was a very pleasant experience - food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. Fish selection is quite varied and preparation of the butter fish was very tasty. Sufficient non seafood items are available for non fish lovers. Well worth a trip."

  • "Took my 2 1/2 year old along with new born. Lively restaraunt, great for kid noise and distraction. Parking is horrible in South Market business district. Impeccable service, great food,somewhat limited menu, nice wine list. Recommended, but does not compare to Roy's Pebble Beach."

  • "It was our first time here and it was beautiful. We loved the extra decorations and menu print out for Mom's birthday. The food was perfect and our drinks were great. I don't remember our waiters name. He was attentive when he was helping us, but he would disappear for a long time between ordering appetizers, drinks, and our main course. Our dinner ended up being 3 hours."

  • "Been here before, loved location, vibrancy and attention to detail by the team; however, food seemed bland - especially for the price. Might be a better idea to load-up on appetizers and skip entrees."

  • "FYI for vegetarians, ask for the vegetarian menu which is separate from the regular menu. I ordered the teriyaki Portobello mushroom from that, but I have to say I was disappointed. Way too sweet for me. But honestly, the waiter suggested a tofu dish and I probably should have listened. My partner did enjoy the fish entrée he had though. We had a bottle of California sparkling and I thought the price was reasonable. Service was courteous, but I found it odd I had to ask for an ice bucket for the champagne. The waiter just set it on the table and I asked for the bucket next time he came by. We were there to celebrate a birthday and they brought a nice complementary dessert. We liked the ambiance quite a bit. Classy but not fussy."

  • "The title of this review is admittedly simple, but fantastic sums up all aspects of this restaurant. The food is fantastic - prepared perfectly, fantastic flavors and fantastic presentation. Beautiful ambiance that somehow captures the island feel, while still being extremely professional and first class. I would go here all the time if I could - a fantastically executed restaurant in almost every way."

  • "During a recent vacation stay in San Francisco, we ate several fine restaurants. Roy's was the family favorite. All the dishes were unique and excellent. Plus, the service was top-notch. Would highly recommend."

  • "As much as I love Roy's in general, the SF location has gone downhill. Maybe it was because it was New Year's Day? I don't know but from the moment we walked in it felt different. first we were seated at possibly the worst table in the restaurant (we had reservations well in advance) and the restaurant was not full.-felt like we were sitting in the kitchen. I asked to be moved and they did move us - that was great. We ordered the spring rolls which were extremely greasy-I wanted to send them back but I didn't. I ordered the butterfish (which I always do) and it was totally different - not a good sear on the fish and extremely salty. Our server was borderline rude-I ordered a Hawaiian Martini first thing and she claimed I did not order it."

  • "My friends and I have parties here, especially for birthdays. Growing up in SF, my favorite Roy's has to be here of course. Yes, I've been to Hawaii's and Ko Olina, I still love SF. Even if I choose to dine with a girlfriend, my husband, or our kids, Roy's SF accommodates. Customer service is always stellar, I enjoy every meal. I love the variety of drinks and wines. Can't go wrong with Roy's SF, it's the place to be. I would choose to take my husband's clients here, and afterwards, enjoy a stroll around the neighborhood - many sights to see and things to do. Hands down Roy's of SF is my fave!"

  • "I always enjoy eating the delicious food at Roy's. Unfortunately, it's always so dimly lit inside for dinner that I feel like I have to strain my eyes to see the menu (and my eyesight isn't even that terrible!). It also took a very long time for food to be served, but fortunately, my party wasn't in a huge rush, so the food was worth the wait."

  • "My wife found the soup that came with the Surf n Turf too salty. For the price charged, I was expecting better. The food tasted better a few years back. I've been to Roy's in Hawaii and the quality is much better."
