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.

Lovely choice when in the Anaheim resort area! The menu is very lovely. Portions are not huge, but seem to be filling enough.

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

Took 15 minutes for server to greet us so night started off poorly. Overall timing of service was slow throughout the meal. Roy’s seems to keep changing their menu- especially appetizers so some of our favorites have disappeared. We’ve been long time customers but I don’t think we’ll be back. We shared all this with the manager and she listened but seemed indifferent.

Overall we had a good evening for our party of 9. The level service was variable - it took three asks to get a wine menu in the beginning and sometimes difficult to get someone’s attention for drinks. One of the male waiters did not really seem ‘on the ball’ but I didn’t see his name. The noise level was really high so sometimes difficult to carry on a conversation. Food quality generally was quite good (and extra appetisers that we ordered came out promptly - thanks) but entree’s especially seems overpriced for what they were. Wine prices were similarly high. Ambience (just FYI you have a typo in your questionnaire) was ok but looked quite generic and ‘chain-like’ for the price point. I would have given this experience a 3.5/5 rating.

Took the family out for a birthday.. Great service and food. When we first arrived the front desk talked to my daughter and grandson, they gave the server my grandsons name and made him feel like a king. Very special touch, they made sure we were taken care of!!

This was our first time and Roy’s. I made reservations and for 5:30. I called at 5 when I realized we were going to not make it on time. They were very understanding. Arrived and 6 and was seated very quickly. Everyone was very nice. They wished my husband happy birthday a couple times. The food was great! We did not wait long for our food. Our server was very nice but he did forget to bring my husband beer and we were given the wrong desert. I ordered the upside down pineapple desert, but was given a chocolate desert I’m error. It would’ve been nice if it would’ve been credited being that I told the waiter I don’t like chocolate. we didn’t have the time to wait for the correct one since we had a concert to attend. Overall our first time experience was ok.

Roys hands down is the best Restaurant in the area. AMAZING staff and a shoutout to Spencer for making our Anniversary dinner extra special with our flowers and personal Anniversary card. Also every staff member that passed our table were very courteous in wishing us a Happy Anniversary. If you’ve never been to Roy’s in Anaheim, it’s a must! The food is amazingly delicious and can’t wait to go back.

Our waitress was very personable but I have marked down service as there was a 30 minute gap between our appetizer being finished and the main course arriving. The restaurant was NOT busy

My husband and I use to go to the one in Fashion Island, Newport Beach often. When I received a gift card from American Express, I decided to take My daughters. They have been at Roy's Anaheim few times, they like it and so did I. It was so nice spending time there, everything was excellent!

We usually have a great time at this Roy’s. We still did, but I did notice a longer wait in the service of the food and we didn’t get the dessert we ordered. It was switched without notifying us. The taste of the food was excellent as always.

Our family had a wonderful time at dinner. The restaurant did an amazing job of making our kids feel welcome. The chefs prepared our food with skill. We had the seasonal price fixe, short ribs, seafood sampler and lamb chops. Everything tasted great. The portions on the single items appeared to be more than the samplers. I would recommend this location for an exceptional experience.

The lunch menu was fine. I guess I expected a lot more in terms of quality, flavor and presentation. I’ve eaten at Roy’s several times for dinner and have always been very happy with the food and service. Overall, I would say lunch was lacking on both accounts. I’ll stick to dinner.
