Stacey provided excellent service. Appetizers were fabulous, my husband especially enjoyed the clams. For me the crab cakes and butterfish never disappoints. And I can’t say enough about the desserts. We usually celebrate birthdays there.
It was an awesome experienced, food, service, and ambiance. The downside is the cost of the meals, overpriced.
Service was excellent.
Showed up and still had to wait between 15-30 minutes before being seated. Defeated the purpose of this app.
I have been to other Roy's restaurant but this one is the best. Staff are very attentive. Service was fast. Food was very good.
My last visit to Roy's in Hawaii Kai was perfect. Food, drinks, service....all excellent. Reminded me of old times, many years ago, when Roy was at the restaurant, in the kitchen, every night. Quite delightful. Roy's is winning me back.
First time to this location. Just like all the Roy’s that we went to, they didn’t let me down. Food was excellent with top notch service. We will be back her again for sure.
Roy’s is always a certainty from the food to the atmosphere, to the great service!
Started out at a less than ideal table and when that was mentioned we were moved and then the manager moved us to a better table again
Service was great and everything came out promptly. The appetizers were delicious but the main courses were just ok. Overall it’s still a great dinning experience.
Beautiful experience and wonderful food. Friendly and outstanding service.
I had the prefix menu. The short rib appetizer and shutome were tasty but a little too salty for me.
Lovely EasterBrunch at Roy’s. My only recommendation would be chocolate for dessert. Ha
Great staff service and food , what else more can you say. Excellent and superb!
Dined at Roy’s Hawaii Kai with my parents 25 years ago. Wanted to bring my mother back to this particular location for a memorable meal. Brought my son tonight and he thought it was awesome. He was ready to lick the plate of the chocolate lava soufflé. Excellent dessert!!!
Yummy dinner! We were seated by the window to watch the sunset. It was a lovely dinner with friends who were visiting. I always order the butterfish and I’m never disappointed. We had a few appetizers so I got the smaller portion which was perfect. Still had room for dessert! Excellent meal
As always a great dining experience. Wait staff are excellent, as is the food. My favorites are the appetizer blackened ahi, szechuan ribs, wedge salad, and chocolate soufflé.
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at Roy’s with two close relatives while on a trip from the East Coast. Roy’s has always been one of our favorite restaurants and we have dined at many of his restaurants in the Islands and on the mainland. We were happy to return to the Original Roy’s after more than twenty years and we were all delighted with the superb prix fixe menu with wine pairing; Roy’s food always lives up to high expectations. A lovely evening with attentive service and a great view!
Great place for a birthday. Nice view, terrific service. Wished the air conditioning was cooler
I have been to Roys several times and each time I always wonder why I do not come here more often. The food is amazing, the prices are very reasonable, the portions are large, and the service is always outstanding.
Some spicy food were not labeled properly on the menu. By the time when the food arrives, then we realize they are spicy (too spicy for a young girl)
Jamie T was our server, she was awesome. It was my friend’s first time to Roy’s Hawai’i Kai so Jamie did a great job going through the menu with my date.
We had always wanted to go to the Original Roys. We live in SoCal and have been several times to the Anaheim location. And when in Hawaii, we usually stay at Outrigger Reef and always have our first night's dinner and the Roys across the street. However, we are at Kahala this trip so got out to the Original. And it did not dissappoint. They knew we were celebrating out 41st anniversary and my 65th birthday, and they made it very special. Thank you!
This is my third time at Roy’s and the only time I enjoyed it. I think I got the hang of this joint
Food was delicious, the staff was very friendly and thoughtful to us, especially to our kid, very pleasant experience, will definitely visit again if we are in Oahu again!
Very special 18th birthday
This was an A+ dining experience. The service was great. The manager came over to ask about our experience. The food was absolutely outstanding. The spring roll appetizer was great. The surf and turf was great. The drinks were yummy. We will definitely return the next time we visit Oahu!
For being one of the premier restaurants on Oahu I think Roy’s leaves a little on the table. My party chose the pre-fix menu. The appetizer was tasty but the main and dessert was not as good as I would have expected. All and all a very satisfying meal, but not exemplary.
Roy's is still one of my all time favorite restaurants in Hawaii. You just can't go wrong here. Excellent!
I think the salad was prepared ahead of time because it looked slightly dull. The calamari was lukewarm when it was served. Just telling you these things because I love the restaurant and don’t want it to decline.
This is my favorite Hawaii restaurant. The appetizers are particularly great, but the main courses are excellent. The chocolate lava cake -- or soufflé may be the best dessert around. Check out the prix fix menus as well, they can be wonderful values.
special occasion location & menu, nice change from the chain restaurants, a bit pricey but nice view
Oh my gosh FABULOUS AS EVER! We went here 30 years ago on our honeymoon and it is just as fantastic as we remembered. The service was SUPURB. Jason (we hope we have his name correct!) was very well informed about each and every item on the menu including the cocktails. What a wonderful heartwarming way to cap off our celebration of 30 years of marriage. Thank you Roys!!!! We will be back!
We visit Roys all over the mainland but nothing is like the ones Roy owns in Hawaii.
Always a nice experience! The restaurant’s handling of our food allergies gives us much confidence as we order.
Such a fantastic experience and food was delicious!
Always great food, great service and beautiful views.
Have never had a bad wxperience there. Staff is always amazing and food always wxcellent. Always our place to go for a wondeful dinner
Food, atmosphere, was lovely. Staff was absolutely perfect and wonderful EXCEPT for the hostess named KIANA.
I called to say we would be late for our reservation and she put me on hold for 10 minutes.
When I hung up and called back because I had to, Kiana picked up and I said "I was on hold for 10 mins so I called back." She didn't apologize or anything as if it wasn't her fault.
When we came to check in, "Kiana" at the front looked so busy (I'm rolling my eyes sarcastically while writing this) playing with ribbons. Then as we left, we heard her talking to her friend on the phone. We said thank you and she turned around as if to ignore us. I thought the hostesses' job was to be polite, greet, and say goodbye to everyone as they came and left?
Her LOW CLASS behavior greatly decreased the quality and prestige of Roy's.
