Our appetizer took about 30 minutes, and we were getting upset. The waiter brought us some complimentary edamame because he knew that it was too long a wait. The food was delicious and the food came timely after that.

We felt our server was rushing us a bit. We've been numerous times and very felt that way before. Although it was an early reservation and the restaurant wasn't busy so maybe he was just being super attentive. The food is always amazing!!

I do not intend to ever go back to the restaurant. The service was mediocre at best. At the conclusion of the meal, I ordered a cup of decaf coffee. After 15 minutes, my wife went to look for the waiter and told him that we were unwilling to wait any more and provide the bill. When the bill came, I was charged full price for the wine which was supposed to be I/2 off on Wednesday. This promotion is prominently noted in the menu. This all took another fifteen minutes. Thanks.

In one word “FANTASTIC”. Appetizers were wonderful, dinner was seasoned wonderfully and cooked perfectly. Sides came with the meal so there is great value in your meal. Desert was a homemade pineapple upside down cake. I am not a desert person and told my wife i would try a bite but ended up eating more but then her. This was a date night for me and my wife and we invited her best friend along and all three of us were just so impressed with the restaurant and the food. I have been in the area for about eight years and had not known about Roy’s but I sure wish I had. We will make up for lost time and be back at Roy’s soon.
The manager came over and checked on us. My wife is a chef and she asked to meet the head chef. Chef Buschman came out and spoke to us for awhile. and asked how our meal was. Our waiter Dave was fantastic, he knew the menu well and made fantastic recommendations. The lady filling our water glasses (I’m sorry I don’t know your name) was fantastic. The valet was great, super easy to use.
I can not wait to head back to Roy’s for another dinner. Great food, great service, awesome staff fantastic value and awesome atmosphere. Do yourselves a favor and go to Roy’s, you will not be disappointed.

We've eaten at Roy's in other cities, but this was our first visit to Roy's Baltimore. It was okay. The food was good, but the other Roy's we've been to I would have rated as excellent. The service was fine, but I was disappointed that the Wednesday 1/2 off wine bottle was not reflected on the bill and we had to ask for it to be adjusted, even though we had confirmed the discount with our waiter prior to ordering the wine.

A bit rushed due to a slow start with service. Fine later. Rockfish was excellent as was the pork shoulder.

The food was not bad, but I ordered the black cod which is always a mild tasting fish and it had a very fishy taste. I was not able to eat it afraid that I would get sick. I told the waitress and she brushed me off completely. I thought that it was very poor customer service.

We frequent Roy's in Bonita Springs when we are in Florida during our winters. This was a nice treat as we were in town for a running event. Misoyaki Butterfish is my go-to and did not disappoint. The pineapple upside-down cake was also consistent with our Florida restaurant. Need to have one of these restaurants closer to the Canadian border!

We were celebrating our anniversary and everyone was welcoming and made it a special meal, especially our waiter, Tucker. We each had the Roy's Trio and some side dishes and the fantastic chocolate souffle. It was a great evening. One thing I appreciate about Roy's is that they read my requests and honor them as best they can. We always ask for a quiet booth and that's what we get.

This was my first time dining at Roy's and I was not disappointed. The appetizer of lobster pot stickers was very good. I had the butterfish and it was delicious. It was cooked perfectly and not overly fishy at all. My dining partner however, ordered the macadamia crusted mahi mahi and it was over cooked. We did enjoy the pineapple upside down cake for dessert but were disappointed with the bread pudding. Overall, I would like to come back to try some other dishes.

We've been to Roy's several times now and this was BY FAR the best food we've experienced. Every time we've gone we love the food but this time it was exceptional. The waiter was phenomenal as well. We come back because you make it special for us. I love this place.

We went to Roy’s in Baltimore to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was such a lovely dining experience and everyone was so friendly and helpful. This was especially true for our waiter Justin. He was helpful with our wine and food selection. We dined on the Wedged salad and the Mixed Shell fish Sampler and to top it off had the “Roy’s melting hot chocolate Souffle”. Thank you Justin for such a lovely treat.

To begin with we arrived early and the staff was happy to accommodate us. Then the appetizers came and were great. We ordered the lobster roll and fried soft shell rolls and were not disappointed. For the main course I got the Chilean sea bass and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We’ll be back definitely.

Exceptional services and an outstanding dining experience. We held our rehearsal dinner with Roy's Baltimore and go back whenever we can. Have yet to have an off-putting experience. Even this past time around we wanted something that wasn't on the menu that we absolutely love and without solicitation the head chef came out with a to-go box of that said item, at no expense to us, so we could enjoy it later. You just can't beat this place when fine dining.
