The original Roy’s is in such a good location with a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset! Our food was delicious—cocktails, dessert—the whole nine yards. Service was impeccable. Can’t wait to dine here again.
Excellent food, service and ambience. Loved the Caesar salad, brussel sprouts, and and the macadamia nut crusted fish with lobster sauce. Wow- it was all so yummy! As a couple, we split everything between us and it was just the right amount of food. Loved it!
Absolutely incredible. Right across from the beach. Very quiet and great for a romantic night out.
Our first time here and we love everything about this restaurant, from the excellent service of staff, delectable cuisine, affordable prices for the quality of food and superb service. I would love to come back. We were treated so special for our wedding anniversary. Definitely a 5 star ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wonderful as always!
An excellent restaurant. The set menu was outstanding and an excellent value. Service, as always, was top notch. My overall favorite restaurant.
Service and food the best..
I love Roy's. We hadn't been in a few years and my wife was craving the soufflé. The service was great. The cocktails were excellent, and the miso butterfish was outstanding. However, the macadamia nut mahi was quite underwhelming, the appetizer was forgettable, and the soufflé was a real shame. It was served limp on a barren plate and it was just a stark reflection of the overall experience. 4 drinks, 1 app, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, tax and tip for a total of $260.
An excellent choice for a beautiful early dinner. Now the tables are spaced further apart unlike before, the ambience is much more elegant and with the calming ocean bay view, the sunset are all so lovely.
All our food choices were well seasoned, tasted so yummy...
Except for my lamb was ordered med but got plated rare...a staff did ask if I wanted to reorder - I said no but please inform the kitchen to be aware of this cooking error.
A memorable birthday dinner and we will be dining at Roy's again soon.
Always amazing. Great food and great view.
Everyone was very nice
Offered us an outside table on a piece of astroturf. Declined that. Was put in the naughty room. It appeared to be a meeting room. There was a tv with disconnected wired hanging from it and no rhyme or reason to the tables. When I left I saw the dining room where the real people got to eat.
I love Roy's! Especially good for a celebration like a birthday or anniversary. They go out of their way to make it a special evening.
Roys is one of my favorite restaurants. Great service and great food. It was easier to get reservations here instead of the Waikiki location, so we drove out from Waikiki.
We were on vacation, not from the area, but Stacy our server treated us like kama’aina, which made our dinner extra special. No matter how many times we’ve eaten at Roy’s, it’s always a wonderful meal with gracious service.
Food & service - great! From appetizers to dessert, delicious!
Butterfish was absolutely scrumptious.!! Had a beautiful window table and very professional and friendly wait staff!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday. We were very happy with our dining experience and our table with a view, located in the upper dining room
The servers were amazing! The food was delicious. Nice view too.
We had the best dining experience at Roy’s on our honeymoon! We sat outside and enjoyed sunset over the ocean! Our servers were attentive and thoughtful.
My husband ordered the prix fixe menu and I ordered meatloaf. We had blackened ahi and baby back ribs as appetizers. The ribs were tasty, but we surprised ourselves by favoring the ahi. My meatloaf was perfectly cooked. My husband’s short rib was good, but the macadamia nut Hawaiian fish was our favorite dish of the night! It was tender and flavorful.
We upgraded dessert to the chocolate soufflé. The warm dark chocolate was fantastic with raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream.
We didn’t think we liked seafood but Roy’s convinced us otherwise! We’d love to come back the next time we visit Oahu.
My husband and I booked a table with a view for our anniversary. It was our first time at Roy's, and everything was fantastic. The service was perfect and the food and view were amazing! The staff was very nice, and they even gave both of us our own free desserts. At the end of the dinner, they left us a $25 off coupon for our next visit. Roy's has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants, especially for celebrations. We will definitely be returning again soon!
Roy’s went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special. The food was delicious, and was served within 10 minutes of ordering, and the service was so kind and speedy. We couldn’t have had a better evening!
Wonderful celebration with our children for our wedding anniversary. The food were delicious. Fish well prepared, and chocolate lava souffee was outstanding
Great service. Sat in the bar area at my request. So ambience ok. As in any restaurant some dishes better than others. Not inexpensive. Will go back again.
Everything was amazing!
The food and ambience was great. With the Pandemic a lot of the usual favorites were not available. No oysters, or escargots. Other than that great food and service. Would always recommend Roy's
staff was very attentive throughout. Food and service was absolutely amazing! This is why I always bring my wife here for her birthday dinner.
Celebrate our anniversary at Roys every year. Always excellent service and food
Wonderful service, food & view!! You can never go wrong dining at the original Roy’s in Hawaii Kai! Highly recommend!!
As usual… service and food were outstanding!
50th birthday celebration
One of our favorite places to dine! Everyone there is courteous, cheerful and helpful. The food is consistently good and the view is paradise.
We ordered one appetizer(spring rolls) and three entrees(Seafood Collection-Palabok, Kauai Prawns, Herbed Crab& Crispy potato Chilean Sea Bass) and shared them. At $40+ per plate we expected to be raving about the food when we were done but that was not the case. We all came to the same conclusion, the food was okay. All three were rich and buttery but missing the heat, salt and acid. These meals were not exciting to eat. The staff was friendly and nice but the service was mediocre.
Overall, we were disappointed and will not be returning.
Food was delicious and the beef short ribs were fork tender. Definitely a place to celebrate a special occasion, husband's new job!
Perfect as always in every way, that's why it is such a favorite!
Delicious food, good service and great atmosphere! The braised short rib and chocolate soufflé cake is a must have.
It was our Anniversary the staff were all wonderful! Made us feel special. Very well taken care of. The food was excellent!
An awesome experience. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding!
Great food, consistently good (Roy’s) service and relaxing atmosphere made this an enjoyable evening.
I booked this for our anniversary and it did not disappoint! You must get the butterfish as it is amazing! Service was fantastic as well!
