Staff was attentive. Food was great as expected. Noticeable social distancing per COVID19 mandates. Glad I could celebrate my birthday there!
My favorite restaurant to celebrate my Birthday. Great food, service, and view. I love Roy’s, everyone is so nice and makes you feel welcomed!
As always, our go-to restaurant for fine dining! Excellent meal and service.
When we arrived in Honolulu one of the first things we did was make a reservation at Roy,s Original. Always top shelf, went to the Philadelphia location often until it closed, we live in Southern Delaware and wish there was a location near us.
First time experience was absolutely awesome. Food selection from appetizers, butterfish main dish and ube brulee was exceptional.
Great local foods and exotic tastes. Highly recommend the Dorado! Excellent Smokey flavor over mashed parsnips.
Went for my friend’s birthday. Took advantage of their Kaukau Combo that I got from their email newsletter... Staff was great and food and drinks delicious!
We've eaten frequently at Roys over the years, always has been excellent and great dining experience
All around excellence in every respect. The only drawback was we had a reservation but getting us seated was a little slow and we had to stand around and there was no backup.
Everything was perfect but our waiter wasn't the friendliest, altho the two guys who refilled the edamame were wonderful, smiling, friendly, eye contact.
Always a great experience at Roy’s. Never can go wrong with their food. Everything is delicious and service is impeccable.
Loved the food and drink! Jason was an awesome server and the General Manager, Zamir, was very welcoming as well!
We decided to go back to the original Roy's in Hawaii Kai. The crowd seemed very local and older. The ambiance was tranquil and perfect for conversation. Our server , Stacey, was friendly and professional. The dinner was quite enjoyable and we left satiated. I would suggest trying this Roy's as a part of your Honolulu dining experience.
Very nice! A very different menu from the chain. The butter fish was outstanding!
Everything was fabulous. It was our anniversary and we were treated like royalty. We will definitely be back.
We are used to the Roy’s in Waikiki so coming to Hawai’i Kai was a wonderful treat. We love the difference! We appreciated the smaller menu, the very attentive and pleasant service, the view from the restaurant, the space between tables, not being rushed (in Waikiki barely seated before being asked about drinks, felt like they wanted us done because someone more important was coming) — all in all, it was such a nice change and experience that this will be one of our go-to restaurant choices when in Honolulu. Definitely worth the drive.
Roy’s never disappoint. One of my fav place to dine. Amazing view of sunset!
Very nice, good service and food was delicious.
Roy’s is Always fabulous.
Always impressed by the quality of service and food at this location. The only Roy’s that we feel is ever worth visiting. Love the signature pineapple upside down cake.
My husband and I went to Roy’s to celebrate our anniversary on 2/19/20 and the experience was simply amazing. The staff went above and beyond our expectations to create a really memorable night for us and we really appreciated it. The food and wine were delicious and Mahalo to our server Dylan he was pretty awesome! We look forward to returning soon.
Probably one of the best places I've ever eaten at around the world. The menu has so much choice. Our meals were cooked to perfection. I had the Honey Mustard Grilled Beef Short Ribs which melted in my mouth. Compliments to the chef as it was seriously amazing.
The location and view is stunning. Service and overall quality stunning.
I can't wait to go back next time we visit Oahu.
Excellent experience. Quality of service and food were outstanding.
Food is always good. Specials rotate everyday which is a nice touch to keep things fresh. Restaurant is very noisy and tables are very close together. I understand that the desserts take a while to prepare and it does make sense to give the customers the option to order ahead of time but it does detract from the fine dining experience when I have to choose in a split second while eating my appetizer. Overall, the restaurant is good and has always had good food.
The service was impeccable. I was impressed with the little things they did to help celebrate our anniversary.
Excellent Service, Great Staff, Even on a busy Valentine’s Day night the staff was very attentive. The wine pairing was full of great wines. Overall 10/10! Worth the traveling time!
In a word: disappointing. I went on a Valentine day, and the service was slow. The couple next to us left without getting their food because it came out too late. The food was not good. Appetizers were mediocre at best, the main dish was also just meh. For the price, it wasn't worth it. Just go to the one in Waikiki.
I received the worst service I ever had in my life. It was Valentine’s Day and I planned the evening far in advance, I’m not quite sure why the service was so bad.
Went there for Valentine's day and had their fixed menu. The food was great and they wait staff attentive. We have been here before and it has always been good. The price is a little hight, but it was a special occasion
We went on Valentine’s Day so it was a set menu. 4 out of 5 courses were good, but the salad was a throw away course. The scallops were delicious. They were so busy that half the time our wine pairings came after we had finished the course. At $130/pp...I expected more. Wouldn’t recommend it to others. I’d recommend Haleiwa Joe’s on the East side...same prices but impeccable service.
Fish dishes looked amazing. Service was attentive and friendly. A nice birthday evening. The kids in our party were well looked after which was best of all.
There was obviously no chef in the kidchen....food was insanely salty
not worth the price at all!
Great food, great service, great sunset, excellent prix fixe menu option! Mahalo!
The food was delicious pleasant.
Great views! Amazing food ! Very good service
Food was phenomenal. The best part was how friendly and engaging the hostess was on the first floor. She smiled while engaging with us and our child. Not sure her name but she was great.
Nice ocean view table. Uneven food, but some was great!
The food has gone down hill, but the chocolate souffle is always outstanding. Service has very good, our waiter was very friendly.
Could not have had a better night and dinner. Terrific service, and amazing food. Don’t know what else to say!
