    The Royce exceeded our expectations. There was a birthday card for my wife waiting at the table, and we received a complimentary birthday desert. Food was delicious! The oysters and champagne were yummy. My Greg Norman New York Strip Steak was cooked perfectly. Lori said her swordfish was delicious. And, the beignets were amazing! We had a very enjoyable evening. Thanks Open Table and The Royce!

    Time and time again this restaurant does not disappoint. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and so so flavorful - The tomahawk is a must if you can find people to share it with. The Kobe & Japanese wagyu are deliciously decadent of course. If you are looking for the best steak at a more moderate price though, the Brandt Beef Ribeye is perfection. Also, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. Thanks again Royce for another amazing meal!

    The service was slow. Our waiter was not very attentive and he forgot our coffee and had a long wait. Gave a dumb excuse that the coffee was pressed...not for 15 minutes. Another waited help us with the check. Our waiter was too busy in the wine room and drinking wine with another couple. Lucky to get a 15% tip. Should have gotten zero! BUT great food and steaks. Ambiance was also wonderful.

    Food and service are excellent. Royce is much more impressive as a high-end steakhhouse than it was as a high-end French place. Not cheap, but not out of line with other top steak places like Cut, Delmonico's, etc,... They also made us especially welcome as it was our anniversary, so that was much appreciated. Only negative, was the sommerlier trying to steer us to much higher priced wine selections. I don't mind a recommendation that is maybe $25-$50 higher than the wine I was initially interested in. But to suggest stuff $200-$300 higher, as this gentleman was doing, was unprofessional. So a tip for wine drinkers, know what you want to order and don't rely on their advice.

    Had a great time out! Came into town and took my siblings out to catch up and eat some great food. Chef Perry's food was great, and Matt, Simone, Steven, Kalcho, Andre, and Ricky went above and beyond for all of our needs, including presenting a special brulee'd dish from the chef that I'd never seen before and will probably not see again any time soon :D. Sincerely, thank you all for everything. I had a great time, as did my guests, and I hope to see you all again ASAP

    The steak is the thing at the Royce. It was melt in your mouth, beautifully marbled, best steak ever. Really outstanding. We went for grass fed. She had rib eye, I had Greg Norman Wagyu skirt. Started w/ crab cake, very good. Mushroom medley was yummy and the twice baked potato was fair, but the steak... yum!

    Took my wife here for our anniversary. I didn't know what to expect given I'd found out about this place while searching for a nice restaurant in the Pasadena area. We arrived early and took some photos/selfies out on the grounds and by the pond/bridge area. We went to the bar to await our table and they called my phone right on time. Everything about the place including the service, food, drinks, seating and ambiance were first class. Highly recommended.

    One of the best dining experiences of our lives. The food was top notch! It was the first time that attention to detail really became apparent- everything from an amazing appetizer to exquisite side dishes. The beef came from 3 key producers, and my Wagyu ribeye was outstanding, as was his New York. Dessert was another surprise as we enjoyed the lightest, fluffiest beignets and delicious coffee. But the best part of the experience was the service afforded to us by an amazing staff. This is an absolute MUST if you want a truly special and unforgettable dining experience.

    First, you will be taken back by the hotel this is located within. Leave time to walk around and add that to the experience. It's beautiful. Very nice ambience, quiet, comfortable seating and beautiful decor. Service-great, from the first contact to the last. They know how to do it. Staff was knowledgeable about menu items and wine. We had a personalized greeting on our table which is a nice keepsake. The food was very good. You can order all ranges of steaks from moderately expensive to very high end from Japan. We had the chefs steak sampler, including three cuts from around the globe, and added the two Japanese cuts of kobe and wagyu. Japanese cuts were simply the best I've had. Appetizers and desserts were great.

    How can I describe it. Marvelous steak, great wine, incredible service. I would classify as a 3 star Michelin restaurant. We had the Tomahawk steak between the 4 of us. It was the best steak all 4 of us have ever had besides real Kobe beef from Japan. Tender,flavorful,juicy just awesome. Service was flawless and interaction with staff incredible. A true find!

    I've been looking forward to dining at this restaurant so naturally it was my first choice for my birthday. They were able to reserve one of the nicer table in the center of the room, which I asked for in my special request and it made me so happy to see a birthday card waiting at my table. I ordered the California Rib Eye and my bf ordered the Australian Waygu New York Strip, both excellent and cooked perfectly. We shared the beef carpaccio (AMAZING!), crab cake and creme brulee, all of which I enjoyed a lot. On top of that, they gave me an extra dessert for my birthday. The place is a quiet for a friday night but if you're looking for a restaurant to be romantic/small gathering with excellent service and food, this is the place to go!

    I came here on a Tuesday night for Dine LA and at $45 a person for three-courses it was good but I'm unsure if The Royce Steakhouse has true steakhouse chops. The skirt steak on offer was well seasoned but very chewy. The rest, a steak tartar and a salad with hearts of palm and fried brie, were good but uninspired. In all, too generic but perhaps would be better at full price. Service is 5-star worthy!

    I usually avoid hotel restaurants but this got such good reviews, it was worth a try. The food was great, service was spot on. The regular wine list is varied enough to make a good choice but the criticism there is the woefully inadequate 'by the glass' wine selection. The Greg Norman Wagyu strip, swordfish and side of mushrooms were amazing. The potatoes au gratin were pretty soupy but had great flavor. Warm kale salad was perfect, caesar was salty but nicely presented and well dressed. It is elegant, yet casual and quiet enough for conversation. For a splurge night, this is worth it.

    We pride ourselves on having been to some of the best restaurants in LA and around the world. We ended up at The Royce because no one else was open on the 4th of July and we could't have been more thrilled with our experience. Nothing about our experience was less than excellent. From the moment we walked through the door until the moment we left everything was perfection. From the service to the food, and the setting we were greatly impressed.

    This was our first time dining at The Royce. The food was all very good. Steak tartare, Caesar salad with white anchovies, Brandt ribeye, swordfish, broccolini, dessert sampler plus complimentary anniversary dessert. We had plenty to eat and take home. The only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars was because nothing really surprised me on the menu. It's all pretty standard steakhouse fare. The ambiance is great. It was nice to be in a light, bright steakhouse for a change. The wine room is gorgeous. I'd love to check out their Sunday brunch.

    While we had dined here several times in the past, this was the first time in its incarnation as a steak house. It could have not been more fantastic. The restaurant is as gorgeous as it has always been. A stunning wine cellar as you enter, cleanly decorated and overlooking the beautiful hotel gardens. But this setting paled in comparison to our steaks. Incredibly marbled, melt in your mouth goodness. The wagyu skirt steak was probably the best steak we have had in years. The sauces were delicious but almost unnecessary. The salads are large enough to share...amazingly fresh and quality ingredients. Side dishes were more than excellent. This was all topped off with very professional service. We will be back.

    It was my son's 21st birthday and his choice for a special dinner with parents and his girlfriend. They paid so much attention to him - brought special courses courtesy of the chef, brought him wine pairings with his courses (on the house), and just took such good care of us. That is not unusual at this restaurant but they went above and beyond on this night for my son. AND the food was terrific - again, as usual.
