Visited with a friend for Saturday dinner. I had the Sea Scallops entree, and she had the Macadamia Nut Mahi Mahi. We both had alcoholic beverages. She had the Berry Sangria and I had the Cool Breeze. We both shared a Chocolate Souffle for dessert, and a Hawaiian Coffee (alcoholic). Overall, we both enjoyed the dining experience here. Parking is validated after dining ($3), for around 2 hours.

Horrible experience. Food was good but service was horrible. Spoke to manager about our complaint. After I spoke to the manager the waiter never came back to our table. I had to ask the hostess for the check and to go boxes. Waited more time and waiter never came to pick up payment. I had to go and look for the manager to take my payment. I told her that waiter never came back to our table after I complained to her and she tried to make up excuses for him. She said he was busy but they were only about 4-6 tables occupied at the moment. Bad service and bad management. Will definitely not be coming back.

Me and my gf were celebrating her birthday and it was definitely worth every penny. Our waiter, Oscar, was fantastic. I had short rib which was the best short rib I've ever had in my life. It was so tender that it was melting in my mouth like a butter. Gf had the seafood combo. Scallops were just perfect.

Celebrated our daughter's birthday... great time. Appetizers and dessert were incredible. The beef short ribs were just a bit dry this time but normally excellent. The consistency of the mashed potatoes was softer than expected but tasted wonderful. All other dinners were great. Overall a wonderful experience.

Have enjoyed Roy's many times in the past. Love there Happy Hour-good appetizers and drink selections. Main meal for me this time was overly seasoned. Had the scallops which were presented very well, however, the vegetable as well as the scallops had too much salt. Ambiance always nice as well as the service.

Great service and very good food. Ambience needs a bit of work. A restaurant at this price point shouldn't have brown paper towels in the ladies room. Dining room also needs a refresh.

The kitchen really struggled tonight. They could not get ANYTHING right.
1) They miscalculated and ran out of the Bronzino (it would be a different story if we had a late dinner seating. 7:30 is hardly late)
2) Ran out of Bok Choy (a staple at Roy’s). So the signature Butterfish was served with broccolini.
3) Butterfish was well overdone
4) The duck breast “chef’s special” was extremely under-whelming
5) The pineapple upside down cake desert came out 20 minutes after plates were cleared, despite being ordered with dinner entrees.
6) The pineapple upside down cake was raw inn the middle, despite coming out extremely late
7) We were still charged for desert despite the embarrassing blunder

I had previously dined at Roy’s Honolulu and enjoyed that experience. This was my birthday and I wanted to try this one in Anaheim and i was not disappointed it was great. The steak and lobster were fresh and the steak melted in my mouth the lobster was absolutely delicious. The whole experience was incredible the best birthday in years

As a loyal customer, I received 2 coupons for the same weekend (Labor Day) but was not aware that I could only use 1 coupon per visit. The server was very abrupt saying only 1 coupon could be used. I think that Roy’s should not send so many coupons for the same time unless they can be applied at the same time. These coupons are misleading.

Was there for Sunday lunch. Very limited menu. Quantities miniscule except for the green stuff. Appetizers more substantial than the main courses. Not worth the price charged. Certainly not up to Roy's standard at the Newport Beach location (unfortunately closed now). Cannot think of ever going back to the Anaheim location.

Went to the Roy's at Fashion Island in Newport Beach which was very poor standards. Just went to Roy's in Anaheim and was totally different. Very enjoyable from the food to the service. We all loved it and will definitely be back.

Entry to exit. . . Everything was great. A little less than 5 just because there's always room to improve anything.

Making and changing reservation was easy.
Table was ready right away.
Server was excellent.
Food was great.
And a few little nice nuances to round out a good anniversary dinner.

Beautiful, elegant, and clean restaurant. The staff is extremely friendly and they are also very efficient. The atmosphere was really nice to be in for celebrating. Almost everything we had was fantastic. The only negative I have is the grilled fish and grilled steak were more on the char grilled side than just grilled. My husband and I both felt this took away from the flavor of both the fish and the steak.

If you have an allergy, and you notify them, they are fantastic about dealing with it. They make sure you will not have any issues at all. They truly amazed us at how much they cared.

They truly provide you with a dining experience.

We celebrated a birthday over lunch. There were four adults and a five yr old. The lunch bento boxes were all delicious. Salmon, and short ribs. All cooked to perfection. They brought the 5 yr old a complimentary cheese quesadilla, carrot and apples. That was soooo nice. Brought a key lime pie for birthday girl that was scrumptious. What a fantastic restaurant. We can’t wait to go back.

We’re visitors on holiday from New Zealand and love Roy’s Restaurants since first attending for my husband’s birthday in 2011! And this latest visit did not disappoint... the food was excellent (love those lobster potstickers!) and our waitress was awesome! We ate too much and drank too much (though we made a mistake with the Gary Farrell Chardonnay we tried for the first time... fruity and not like a Chardonnay at all) and we were surprised that there wasn’t the full range of glassware available to get the “right shape” for Chardonnay... Finished it off with their amazing Chocolate Soufflé (better without the Raspberry Coulis)! All in all we had a really great night with no real complaints! Loved it!!!

The service was very good. The receptionist asked about the occasion and we said it’s our anniversary and she made sure we have a nice table complete with Anniversary greeting. The waitstaff were attentive. The only letdown were the lobster roll we ordered, it’s like We didn’t expect it will be that disappointing . My husband said the texture is like it came from a can, I guess it’s because they’re not a Japanese restaurant.. Anyways Roy’s trio was good and the beef short ribs as well.

We were there to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant seemed under staffed. Two large parties came in while we were being seated. Service was slow and we ended up rushing to get the check to be able to leave and make the start of our next meeting. Missing the birthday acknowledgement, which was the purpose of the visit
