    We made a reservation and we were seated on time. The service was excellent. The food, charred octopus, wedge salad, lobster Bisque, filet Mignon and Bronzino were all wonderful. Had a wonderful dinner.

    This place is first class in every way. The service is impeccable everyone who works there has a great attitude and seems genuinely happy to be there. The food is creative and incredibly delicious. Prices are very high but it's to be expected in a restaurant of that caliber especially in a hotel of that caliber.

    I recently celebrated a special occasion at Royce Steakhouse, and once again, it did not disappoint. Our waiter, Jorge V., greeted us with a genuine smile and made us feel right at home. His attentiveness and professionalism truly enhanced our dining experience. As for the food, it was nothing short of spectacular. Each dish, every bite was a delight to the senses. Overall, Royce Steakhouse continues to be a favorite destination for special celebrations. With delicious food, impeccable service, and a welcoming atmosphere, it's no wonder we keep coming back. Thank you, Jorge V., for making our evening even more memorable...

    Amazing is the only word my wife and I could come up with. Best 10year anniversary dinner we’ve ever had. Kristy (sp?) was wonderful and attentive. Food was amazing. Australian Ribeye for me and the Cauliflower Steak for my wife. Gifted a dessert (Strawberry Cream Puff) and it was absolutely amazing. Already planning a return trip. Can’t wait!!! AMAZING!!!

    Food was very good. Appetizers such as charred octopus and hamachi excellent. 32 oz Rib Eye Steak also quite good. Waiter was generally good but front of house/reception staff seemed to forget about us and did not seem well coordinated between the people working the front. Overall the experience was positive and we enjoyed the evening and food.

    Beautiful restaurant. Most items prepared perfectly. Timing was spot on. Issues were birthday not acknowledged and the chairs were so sat through and worn out it was really uncomfortable. (They were the blue banquet style not the large white chairs.) The main issue was the waitstaff began clearing the table when one guest was still eating. They even started to clear the shared sides while that diner was still eating. Also we had to repeatedly request for a side.

    Went to Royce for their Valentine's dinner prefix menu, everything except the steak was not good, the appetizers were either too salty or no flavor. Not worth the $220 per person price for sure. Waiter seemed very rushed and was not too friendly.

    The steak was the only thing that was superb. Everything else was mediocre. It was not worth the price I paid. I should have just ordered the steak and skip other courses. They charged $145 for the wine pairing and did small pours in each glass. Most fine dining restaurants charge $75-&120 and try to please their customers. The highlight of the evening was when they taxed on the tip (ie total + 20% gratuity (which was acceptable) and they added tax on everything). The waiter said “ it’s the law”. Since when did government start taxing on tips???????

    We came for my bday my family and I. We drove from the valley it was about a 45 min drive. We were excited and looking forward to dinner unfortunately from the moment we walk in the host was struggling. They mention how we had to wait for the tables to be clean so it will be 5-10 min. Fine we waited the crazy part is when we got sat the table was still dirty. My spouse had to clean it before we could sat down. The table still had food and crumbs. Moving along we got greeted by a busser lady asking if we wanted water. We said can we order we are ready. She said no I’m not the server. We said who is we are hungry and would like to order. She pointed to the server who was in charge of our table. We waited 15 min before my spouse got up and said something to him about how long we been waiting. He said he was dealing with some credit card issues. But not an excuse in my eyes to waited for that long with no food or anything. I had to ask for bread service bc our family was hungry. Overall the food was great but not worth it for me it’s service that makes the experience magical and wanting to come back with more friends and family. In this case they failed.

    The food was amazing. And the atmosphere was wonderful and welcoming. The service was inconsistent. The staff was very nice and considerate but there were misses that should not happen at a restaurant as Royce. For example one of our party ordered a wine that you were out of. No problem except it took for ever for this to be addressed and was only acknowledged after one of our party had to remind the waiter to offer an alternative. It took some time for the table to be clear between courses etc. One one hand these are somewhat minor issues but Royce is the type of experience where you expect top notch service. We will be back - we live In the neighborhood- but do recommend these service details be addressed

    Great eating and experience in general, however it was the loudest restaurant I have have had dinner at, and as the night wore on, it got louder. So loud as to make me pass on dessert and get out of the restaurant as fast as I could.

    It was great food and experience but the waiter tries to upsell you without any concern on price. Why did I pay $50 for bottled water? Some of the servers were not very professional. Others were ok. If you are charging so much for everything, your service has to be on point. Just be careful when coming here, the bill can easy inflate to over $600 for 2 people if you gets the base menu and drinks.

    Have been wanting to find time to visit this restaurant for some time now and ended up there on a random weekday for dinner with a visiting friend. It was everything I expected and more... We were seated at the window overlooking the large garden with views of the city lights. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was PERFECT! My friends enjoyed a tomahawk steak and lobster while I opted for a rib eye wagyu. Whatever the cut...portions were huge and quality was awesome. Definitely save room for dessert and coffee (you get your own individual French press). Will definitely visit again!
