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.
First class service, delicious food, spectacular views.
We always enjoy the atmosphere, the food and the service. It is an upscale restaurant so you need to expect to pay a little more but the experience is well worth the price.
Second time this week and everything was wonderful. From getting greeted by the host to the good night and thank you from the bartender.
As always the food was impeccable prepared.The service was wonderful. Our server was again Bradley and his service was spot on. Not missing anything and anticipated before we could ask. His DRA , sorry I forgot his name, paid attention to us. Plates got clear without rushing us and several times he looked and walked away to not interrupt our dinner. Appreciate that kind of service very much.
Thank you very much for the appetizers that we received on the house. We all enjoyed them and our meal. Your kitchen crew is incredible.
Roy’s is always a great place to visit on any island here in Hawaii but the original hold a special place in my heart.
Thank you and see you soon
Everything was excellent from the service to the food to the desserts!! Do it pass up an opportunity to dine here or any occasion. They have a beautiful patio for casual dining and the second floor has the perfect view of the ocean, Diamond Head and sunset. This was our 5th time eating here and Roy's Hawaii KI location never fails to deliver.
We tried Roy’s based on positive Yelp reviews and had a great experience. Attentive service, quick delivery from the kitchen and delicious food made for a great dinner out. We have friends traveling to O’ahu and have already recommended they dine here.
I have been here several times and the food is always good but the server was not knowledgeable about the food and recommend items the were poor. The main dishes were good and the fish is excellent
Service & Food speaks for itself! This is my favorite place to eat in Hawaii!
As always Roy’s will not disappoint. The food is incredible. We choose the set menu but added couple items to it. No problem for the service or the kitchen.
The server knew the menu and after asking for things that are not available, point me to similar items they served.
Roy’s is always our first stop when in Hawaii. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening
Superb service. Amazing fish cooked to perfection. Always a treat to visit any Roy’s location. First time to the Hawaii Kai location and we will be back. Excellent and just what we expected.
We had the Dim Sum canoe for two and split the Ribeye. Dim Sum was great. Delicious sauces. Steak was ordered medium. It was over cooked and, in my opinion, not a $60 steak. But, the brown butter sauce, mushrooms and roasted potatoes were perfect. There are so many fish options that we will go back and try something else. Staff was incredibly attentive. Ambiance was lovely.
Birthday celebration. Wasn’t expecting much but was blown away with all we received: canoe appetizer, red pepper bisque, rib eye, butterfish and snapper. All on point ono! As my son commented: wow this is the first time mom didn’t complain about the food!
... outstanding food, amazing service...our first visit on a recommendation, will definitely return...
Roy’s visit after awhile was refreshing- sushi, appetizer options a nice addition. Good food, service.
enjoyed the food, friendly service, and atmosphere
Nice setting, great food and good service. We look forward to going back. The manager is a genuinely nice person who came around to check on our dining experience and stayed to chat.
Excellent meal and service by Stacey! Well done once again Roy’s!
Good scallops. The garlic fish however was all garlic! Will need to be very selective on food choices based on this one dish. Comp’ed for the meal but the server did nothing to replace the meal with a substitute prior to receiving the bill.
Staff were here very accommodating. Food, as usual, was excellent. Thank you.
Roy's is very busy. As a result, you don't get the personal touch like you do at other restaurants, which to me is a large factor in customer service. I had asked for a window table but they sat us near the front entrance. When we complained, they found a window seat towards the back of the restaurant, which was very nice. The food was good, but they skimped on small things. For example, when I was brought the clams appetizer, bread was not included and I had to ask for it. Whereas in other restaurants the bread is a special part of the presentation. I doubt we will return any time soon. There are lots of options in Honolulu.
The food was delicious! The service is great and very attentive.
Always good food and great ambiance. Service is great and sunsets are the best!
Roy’s Hawaii Kai never disappoints!
Stacey’s service is impeccable and always greets us with the warmest Aloha spirit that lingers until our next visit. The best restaurant & service on Oahu!
Best mahi mahi i’ve had on island. Got to watch the sunset and the service was impeccable
One of countless celebrations at Roy’s! Have never been disappointed.
Everything was wonderful except the noise level.
Always good eats. Super service and nice times. We change things up depending on who we are with or occasion. Always accommodating. Pre fixe is a good value when it’s on the menu. Another good thing is the chef keeps freshening up menu with seasonal dishes. Aloha
We are big fans of the Original Roy’s and have enjoyed many memorable meals here including our daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner. This time our server spent most of the evening chatting up the table next to us about his musical gig later that night. Our entrees order was delayed and he kept forgetting requests.
Outstanding! The service was amazing. It was my birthday and every person we encountered, said "happy birthday". The food was better than I could have ever expected. I've eaten at a number of Roy's in California, Florida, and Las Vegas. I had to try the original, and it proved best of all.
The service was amazing! The food outstanding! Really made our kids experience special too! Mahalo!
Our family including a 12 year old came to visit from portland oregon. I was very pleased that when a spokesman from Roy’s called to confirm our reservations, that she asked if a child was co I g so that a child’s menu could be placed at our table. Very nice touch. All five of us had seafood, and all different. Dessert was the highlight for our granddaughter and the lapperts vanilla ice cream was delicious.
We had a wonderful dinner. Our server, Stacey, was amazing!
Excellent Asian Fusion modern cuisine, friendly and attentative
The overall service and food was outstanding! Thank you for always making our once a year dining experience a memorable one.
It was very nice but could have alittle more touches in deco on the table for Valentine's Diners. Food was very tasty but had forgotten my left over on the table as I noticed when we were driving away.
Parking spaces were non existent.
Parked a half a block away.
It was RAINING!!!....HARD!!!!
Won’t be returning to this local.
Should have gone to the Roy’s across the street from our hotel.
Fabulous food! Flavors like no other! Service good! Would definitely go back.
