Wonderful restaurant, overlooking the ocean, with a great view of sunset. The food was excellent -- some of the best salmon I've ever had, plus delicious ahi and misoyaki butterfish. Would definitely recommend!
Excellent views, nearby parking, fabulous service, excellent food
Unassuming establishment until you get taken upstairs. Attentive and friendly staff. Food was great! Thankful for attention to gluten allergy! Wine pours were generous and appreciated. All in all one of our better experiences dining on Oahu - better than Hoku, Alan Wong’s and Plumeria. Thank you Roys for a great meal and experience!
Amazing butterfish and the service was excellent. They don't skimp on the mixed drinks either.
Food and service never fail
Reservations for early evening are easy
The food was okay. The chocolate soufflé cake was delicious. The Ahi maki was delicious. The fish was a little dry. The rib eye steak didn’t have much taste. The bread was delicious and I’m grateful that my water glass was always filled. The seats were great because it wasn’t too close to the next table and it wasn’t noisy.
Very sad experience.
Some bad things happened but worst things of all was that we were seated to the worst table ever. That table is located at the far far end of everything with almost no lights. It was as if we were eating in the dark warehouse. That table should not be existed in the first place, and nobody should not be seated ever.
It’s hard to believe Roy Yamaguchi actually allow that to happen at the flagship of his chain.
The 4 of us had an awesome meal. The food was spot on perfect and our server Dylan took very good care of us!! Will definitely be back next time.
Great service, really good food!
Food and service is consistently excellent. We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary and the staff made it very special.
It was great, our server was very helpful as to what we should try in the menu
Our dinner at Roy's in Hawaii Kai was great. I had friends from out of town visiting and they loved the food and view from upstairs. Service was great. When I made my reservations I asked for a seat with a great view because of my guests from out of town and they accommodated my request. Appetizers were great. My ribeye was perfect. Even the mixed cocktails were great. Would highly recommend.
Greatly enjoyed the expanded menu. Food was actually much better than in past. Portions were also larger.
We have not been there for awhile. Glad that we did. The service was excellent. Dylan made us at home. It makes a big difference when you have a good and attentive server. We ordered five appetizers as we didn't want to eat too much. Ahi was great. Especially the sauce was really good. The greens we ordered were okay. I could probably do better at home. Overall it was a pleasant evening and we will come back.
Very nice experience for our parents 60th wedding anniversary. Service was awesome.
On 10/14 our family had dinner at Roy’s H-Kai. Our reservation was at 5:45 and we had a nice window table. A large table of 10 (?) was already seated next to us and they were loud. I’m guessing it’s just their culture but as the evening progressed they got louder and drank more wine, walking around filling up wineglasses. I hope they had a designated driver.
Anyway, I would like to suggest the next time a large group dines at Roy’s and they are heavy drinkers, seat them in the alcove or not close to other dinners so the voices don’t carry to diners nearby. It was very annoying to hear loud voices and squeezing by our table to talk to their friends and to pour wine.
Otherwise we always enjoy Roy’s.
This was our second time at Roy’s while on the same vacation trip. The food is Devine and the service is quite possibly the most seamless and best I’ve ever experienced. If you want an amazing fine dining experience go to Roy’s; it will not disappoint!
We had an amazing time here for my husband's birthday! Our waiter Joon was on point as well as everyone else. We had our two (soon to be three) year old with us and she was treated so well. They are very accommodating for young children. Would highly recommend to all my friends!
Amazing food and service, and they made a bigger deal out of my wedding then we did. We will definitely be back. Thank you Roy’s.
Absolutely incredible experience. They were so accommodating and generous when it came to our anniversary dinner, we’ll definitely be coming back.
Great service and amazing food. Very impressive wine menu.
If you like a restaurant with good food, good environment, and always consistent then Roy’s is the place for you. Crab cakes are a must.
Everyone cane by to wish us a happy anniversary! Water glasses never empty. Never rushed.
The Original Roy’s is not just a restaurant, it’s a dining experience! The culinary staff sets the bar high with their exceptional flavors and presentation and the wait staff, hostess, and manager take customer service to a whole other level. Thank you for making my 5 year anniversary even more unforgettable! We can’t wait to dine with you again.
A dining experience with beautiful sunset views. Consistent food and a great bar area.
Roy’s Hawaii Kai is always a great choice and is my favorite Roy’s on Oahu. I do miss some of their old menu item specials like the ulua with lobster champagne sauce which is broke da mouth. It’s also unfortunate that the menu offerings are not very different from the other Roy’s locations.
If you’re going to eat at Roy’s on Oahu, this is the one to visit.
We always enjoy dinner and special occasions at Roy's. We had a beautiful view at our window table and our food was wonderful. We did miss not having our usual waitress, but the young man who served us was nice.
First time to the original Roy’s. Wonderful! We’ll be back again.
Everything was great. Only request would be to have the AC going a little sooner as it was humid outside and carried on indoors. Otherwise the service, food and view was perfect.
As usual, this is our FAVORITE restaurant in Honolulu! We've been to the top restaurants in Honolulu and Original Roy's is the best. We consistently have unbelievably great service and food and we leave planning our next visit!
Wonderful food and service was great from Stacey.
Great food as usual. Service terrific as well. This is why we are regular customers of Roys for the
past 25 years. CYSL
It was as expected! Fabulous!
It was nice to spend time with my son. It was his first time eating at a fine dining restaurant. He enjoyed himself a lot. He felt like a king. We were celebrating our birthdays but we didn’t mention it. It was relaxing and the server was superb. Best service
Fish trio entree was not good. Butter fish was dry and very fishy. Steak and short ribs were delicious. Ambiance was fantastic. We had a window table with a view of the sunset at 6:30. Restaurant temperature was a little warm. Waiter was attentive. Water glasses were always topped off. 1/2 of the entrees were disappointing. The soufflés were more like lava cakes than soufflés.
We got there just as they opened. Had a couple of Roy’s special martinis. Excellent. Butterfish was amazing. Finished off with mountain lava cake with ice cream. Perfect combo.
Was disappointed in our meal because we had two children with us, 10 and 11 and only one Keiki appetizer set was brought, had to ask for another. Proper bread was not brought for the escargot. Our coffees were refilled with cold coffee from a carafe that probably had been sitting around.
