Went here to celebrate my MIL’s birthday last night. So happy to have a Roy’s around So Cal since our nearby Pasadena & DTLA ones closed. Food was fantastic as usual but seems the portions may have shrunk. Restaurant was crowded (good for them!) which made it a bit noisy and service a tad slower than expected.

Ordered the Roy combo as suggested by our server. All the food came out ice cold. Completly disappointed for the price we paid. We were told they were famous for this and the fish on the combo was terrible. Tasted extremely old

One of the waiters spilled my associates entire drink on him. I was surprised that no one from management came and apologized to major. Other then that the food and environment was top notch.

Our server, David, and everyone there was professional and charming. As a local, I tend to avoid restaurants in the more touristy areas, but the service at Roy's is superior and warrants repeat visitation. I had the wedge salad (no bacon) and the misoyaki butterfish. Both were perfectly prepared. They have a simple, varied, and high-quality selection of wines, which is always a pleasure. Very comfortable atmosphere.

Great experience. Food, ambiance and service was outstanding. Felt like I was in Hawaii. Our server, Shannon was pleasant and attentive. There was however tiny gnats that hovered over us throughout our dinner. Not too much of a bother though. We had a great time.

I’ve been to Roy’s in Pebble Beach and although it has a great view and surroundings, I enjoyed dinner here more. The host staff was friendly and welcoming and our service was excellent. The gentleman that stopped by (manager I assume) was friendly and asked how the night was going. We were staying nearby and doing our annual trip to Disneyland, which puts us in search of a dinner spot for thanksgiving. Wife chose this restaurant and it was a great move. The meal was on point and I could have used a 2nd round of the lobster bisque. Overall I’d visit here before ever going back to the Pebble Beach location, which seems stuffy and not as welcoming. (Different crowd).

This is not a fair review. As, I went on Thanksgiving. All the food was cold. My steak was raw-rare-cold. The wait staff was awesome!!! The management were just there to cater to the boomers' sensibilities - not for staff, problem solving, or quality control. Sorry. It was a bad experience. I will not be back. But again, this is not a fair review because it was on Thanksgiving. By the way, the staff is AWESOME!!!

The food wasn’t as good as it use to be. They had a problem in the kitchen. The food took 45 minutes or more before it came out. By the time it came out I wasn’t hungry anymore. The dessert require an early order because it takes 20 minutes to make. I ordered dessert when I ordered the entrees yet we had to wait a longer time for the dessert as well. The manager came over and apologized and said he would take the appetizers and dessert off. I was so annoyed and irritated I didn’t look at my bill when I paid. When I got home I realized he only took off the dessert. I go to fine dinning all the time and don’t mind paying for good food. But the food wasn’t even that great and the wait was horrible. I wouldn’t pay that much for their food again.

Butterfish + desserts were amazing - everything else average. One of the host gave us some attitude when we asked to switch tables when most of the dining area was empty. Luckily one of the other hosts was super friendly and did it.

Roy’s is truly a wonderful place to eat. The experience was amazing and they really pay attention to customer service. I had the wedge salad, prawns and noodles, key lime pie and wine. It was all very good and the only comment I would like to make is that the prawns could benefit from a dipping sauce that would compliment the meal and while the pie was very smooth and creamy, more of a lime tang would have been even nicer! I say this all with the utmost respect for this wonderful dining experience.

We came early for our reservation and we got seated right away. They have vegetarian options but they weren't listed on the dinner menu so make sure to ask about them. I recommend trying all the appetizers as they are all excellent.
