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 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.

The Chilean sea bass special was one of the best pieces of fish I have eaten. It was beautifully prepared with asparagus, potatoes and heirloom tomatoes. Roy’s never disappoints.

The service was good but the food was below average. When you consider the price we paid, this is not a restaurant that I would characterize as good for the money. Roy's in Koalina, Oahu, Hawaii was very good. I would not go back to Roy's in Baltimore.

My only comment is that my favorite dish, the Macadamia Crusted Halibut with Lobster Cream Sauce, was replaced with Mahi Mahi and I didn't think it works as well. I will probably order something else next time if this is a permanent change.

We have eaten at Roy’s a dozen times and never disappointed. Over Labor Day weekend they ran some food and wine specials that made a good value even better. Valet parking is a plus. Dining room is due for a refresh IMO.

Food and service was excellent...........but, was it worth the price????? Considering the cost of Valet parking, food cost, tax and tip ($186.00 for 2 with only one glass of the least expensive wine), I'd have to say it's a bit too much. BUT, it is good!

We had a reservation to another restaurant but when I found out we had a vegan in the group, I thought of Roy's and it was the perfect choice. My only complaint was that ribs were extremely salty. Everyone else enjoyed it.

First time at Roy’s - everything we had was delicious. We did an assortment of seafood plates — lobster potstickers, several sushi rolls, crabmeat fried rice, edamame. Every dish as amazing. Ambience very nice, quiet enough for conversation. David our waiter was very attentive and informative. Highly recommend!
