We wanted a nice quiet dinner, after spending days at Disneyland Resort. We had a good server, who was very responsive. The food was plated beautifully and tasted great. The drinks were unique and very tasty.

Since Roy's in Pasadena shut down this is an annual destination for our son's birthday. Roy's is his favorite restaurant thanks to Roy's signature Butterfish. Other fish dishes are top knotch, though we did not enjoy the mustard-based sauce with the ahi. Our vegan daughter also enjoyed her dish, a grilled tofu steak.

we celebrated our anniversary and as expected we are treated very well from the time we walk in all the way to our table . We always go to Roy's for our anniversaries and birthdays in the past and they do not disappoint .

We ordered a appetizer sampler, a platter of different items( sushi, pot sticker, ribs) a great way to sample different items ( it's delicious), the lobster bisque with a twist , Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi with lobster sauce was delicious and Short Ribs

The service provided by Christine was 5 star, She was friendly, make great suggestion for cocktails ( Hawaiian Margarita) very nice and refreshing , She was very attentive and very warm . If you dine there make sure to ask for Christine's table/area

Because we are celebrating special occasion , we got a nice dessert with " Happy Anniversary written in the plate . What a great evening

Roy's is simply our favorite seafood restaurant anywhere in the US. The fish quality is always great and the sauces (like the butter sauce with the ahi) is the best we've ever had.

This is the place to be treated well with wonderful food and great service. Atmosphere was quiet & romantic. We were there to celebrate a birthday & were greeted warmly by the hostess, who then seated us in a booth with a celebratory written greeting. Everything was delicious, served well, drinks delicious, table cleaned quickly but we were not rushed. Planning our next dinner there!

The Butterfly fish was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. The rest of the food was a little over cooked. The server wasn’t very friendly, but did a good job at serving. Wish there had been more quick dessert options.

Roy's never disappoints. Mahalo Monday is a wonderful option too with many options at a great price. The patio is heated and there is a good energy from being so close to DisneyLand.

Food great. Service excellent. They were amazing with our kids. It was my twins' 4th bday and most places are not so friendly to kids. Being that this was by Disneyland, I suppose they cater to people who want a very good meal while staying at Disneyland. They had a special kids menu , which they did not have at other Roy's we had visited, which was good and were so sweet to our girls. However it took about 2.5 hours for our overall meal. I think we were more tired than our toddlers from all the Disney walking so that was bad bc I wanted to go back to the hotel to sleep. Overall I would recommend.

We have been to Roy’s restaurants in several different states, and this is by far the best one. We were visiting Disneyland but wanted a break to have a nice sit down meal. Roy’s was amazing. The lobster potstickers are the best we have ever had. The kids ordered the sushi and we ordered the Sea Bass.
Additionally, the services was on point and the bartender made the best old fashioned.

Our food was good, but there was a mix-up regarding a shared meal. When two of our party ordered a Caesar salad and the steak and lobster combo, they indicated they would be sharing both the salad and the entree. The salad was brought on two plates, already divided. When the entree arrived two empty plates were put on the table, and the entree was also placed on the table. The server left after placing the food on the table, and when he returned our party reiterated that they would be sharing the meal. The server verified that we knew there would be an upcharge for dividing the meal, we said yes, please divide. The server took the plate, and when he brought it back only the steak had been cut in half. Our guests divided the lobster, potatoes, and bok choy and put their meal on their two empty plates. The bill did include the upcharge for dividing the meal, even though he had only divided the steak and left our guests to do the rest. We didn't dispute the charge, we just left. My other comment is something that Roy's has no control over, but just wanted to state the parking at the Garden Walk parking structure is terrible. It took 15 minutes to park coming in, and 25 minutes to get out.

My fiancé and I had dinner here with our 6 month old. It was pretty empty when we got there around 5, which was perfect since had a baby with us. Customer service was awesome and the food was even better! I ordered the Classic Four and everything but one was very good! My fiancé ordered the Shellfish Platter which he very much enjoyed as well. And Maui Sunrise cocktail was delicious! Overall had a very good experience and would definitely be back!

Absolutely LOVE this Roy's, nothing better than sitting on the lanai and people watching while you eat. The food is great and the customer service is even better. We are disappointed that they are not offering the Aloha Hour Menu. We really miss the sliders.
