    Overpriced and very small portion. I had the butterfish, $56. It was an appetizer size portion. My wife had the salmon with somen and namastu that was surved in a bowl. The vinegar from the namastu permeated and overwhelmed the meal. Yuk! We mentioned it to the server and did nothing other than hmmm!

    The food we ordered was fabulous. We had the sushi with ahi & soft shell crab, the whole snapper, & the pineapple upside down cake. Absolutely delicious! And we ate outside & watched the sunset which was beautiful. The service was impeccable as well. Will be going back.

    Roy’s has never disappointed me. Unfortunately, they don’t have the fish selection that they had years ago but what they had was great. Despite the prices this restaurant is very family oriented which is nice but it is something to note if you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner.

    Wonderful food, staff and ambiance. Make reservations for an early dinner so you can see the sunset. Don’t pass on the dessert - the liquid center chocolate cake and the pineapple upside down cake are excellent.

    Underwhelming overall. Food was not even good. Ambiance reminded me of an old, outdated Chinese restaurant. They sat us on their overflow dinning room. For the price point, this was definitely not worth it. Service was also under par. Really regretting spending almost $300.00 for 3 adults and 1 child. Bad, bad experience. There are so many other better choices in Oahu,

    I was looking forward to eating a rack of lamb. Did not know it's only fixed dinner for New Year's eve and rack of lamb was not one of the entree choices. Nowhere on Open Table or Roy's website said fixed dinner only for New Year's eve. Had I known I would never have made the reservation!

    Roy’s is always outstanding. The food is extraordinary. The service is attentive. The dining room is close to the open kitchen, the tables are somewhat close and the acoustics in the room seem to amplify the noise. The solution is to dine either early or late, when the restaurant is less than full.

    I was very disappointed. We were seated upstairs next to a big birthday party. It was more of a banquet room With banquet metal style chairs. Our waiter was great. Flying dragon roll and crab cakes were good. The birthday desert for my daughter was good. They didn’t have Roy’s red wine. Which is really why I wanted to go. I’m I was hoping for the same experience I had at the San Diego location. I will not return to this location after experiencing the “banquet room”.

    This Roy’s is away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki in Hawaii Kai. Very nice ambience and views were picturesque. Staff was outstanding from the start and very attentive. We were celebrating our engagement and was pleasantly surprised to receive a congratulatory dessert. This will now be our go-to place in Oahu for a romantic getaway. Thank you Roy’s for such a memorable evening.
