The restaurant manager, Iliana, is a prize. She is wonderful. She was great to us when we dined at the Roy’s in Naples and that great service has continued on to Bonita. Make sure you take care of her.

The prix fixe menu available for my Living Social voucher was very limited. Roy's has a reputation for innovative fusion cuisine. Very little of that was on offer during our visit. I was a bit disappointed.

We were promised edamame several times by the waiter, but it never arrived at our table. What we didn’t understand was why everyone around us was getting them. The waiter told us they were waiting for the steamer to heat up. Why were other tables who came in after we did getting their edamame, if that were the case? Then the waiter kept blaming his assistant. Why didn’t the waiter get the edamame? It was strange. Also strange was the waiter not showing us the restaurant week menu, but saying it was a Groupon menu. Anyway, we did get free desserts from the manager for our troubles. The food was very good, but the service was not honest!

I was enticed to try this restaurant for the first time when I received a coupon in the mail recently.

When one enters the restaurant, the first reaction is the need for a new ventilation system as the smell is one would expect at a greasy spoon restaurant.

The food was served in ample portions and was good but I prefer quality over quantity. The wine by the glass ordered was not available and that is not the norm.

The big surprise was the fact that when I presented the $40 coupon I was informed by the waiter that since we ordered from a special 3 course menu we were not entitled to the credit. Discount coupons should not be sent out during “restaurant week” promotions.

Poor handling of the situation and I will not return soon. I hope they apply the $40 to a new ventilation system!

The server seemed to be overwhelmed. We struggled to get his attention to order more drinks. We had to ask two other people to get our server for us. He forgot our dessert which was fine he didn’t charge us for it. We will come back but if we get the same server we will ask for someone else. Someone came by to ask how everything was but we only had drinks and it was very early in our dining experience. Wish they had come by later.

If you see everyone with sweaters it should be an indication that it is always TOO COLD.

Me and three friends went for dinner and we were all very pleased with our choices. We all got the 3 course dinner specials; butterfish, short ribs and a chicken dish. all prepared perfectly. The deserts were all very good also. I had pineapple upside down cake with ice cream which you don't see to often on a menu. The cocktails were a nice pour also.

Very disappointed with experience at Roy’s. I can’t imagine there was any mgt there that night. It started with three young people at the check-in desk not being experienced with handling people checking in for dinner. It was almost like they didn’t want to recognize Open Table reservations. The service was poor and the food was cold. The ambiance was great, but we wouldn’t go back again

We had another great experience at Roy’s. Our child is 6 and it’s great that they bring a little sampler plate of veggies and quesadillas over without you having to ask for it while you wait for your meal. Their complimentary edimame is also a great delicious item they serve upon your arrival. Their fresh seafood is spectacular! We had the coconut shrimp and the Roy’s triple which includes 3 different kinds of fish. Their macadamia nut encrusted mahi mahi is to die for! We finished off the meal with their extraordinary chocolate lava cakes and a pineapple upside down cake. We can’t wait to return!!

We’ve been going to Roy’s for years and this has been a staple that the visiting family members always request be included in the itinerary. But on this most recent visit the consensus was that the food quality isn’t what it used to be while the prices have soared beyond reasonable.

Food was great, drinks were good, but pricey. Had 3 ppl and the following: vegetable sushi roll, Caesar salad, wedge salad, kids chicken teriyaki, short ribs, ribeye, pineapple upside down cake, 1 coffee, 1 soda, 2 glasses cabernet, 2 classic cocktails, one vodka martini . . total before tip was $197. So good, but $46 for a steak and$33 for a small portion of short ribs seemed a lot. We keep coming back, though bc it's tasty!😊

Roy’s always pleases! Their crafted cocktails are tasty. The Hawaiian/Asian fusion flavors in their appetizers and entrees are delicious and complex without being too heavy, spicy or salty.

We highly recommend Roy’s Bonita Springs for group dining. We held an event there in June to honor my mother. We were a group of 30 and everything went as planned. The service was superb and the food and beverages were delicious!

House chardonnay could be a better quality for the price. Food was okay. Have had better at this location. The calamari appetizer was a bit tough. Had filet with lobster tail. Filet was great but next time would ask to leave out the sauces. My husband had the short ribs, He said they were good. Waiter was very attentive.

As always, we had a great meal at Roy's. Since the chain was sold, all of the old staff is gone and they lost some of the personal touch of the past. We have been to Roy's in multiple locations and this one was always the best. I would say it has dropped a notch since they reduced the menu, raised the prices and removed some if not all of a very experienced staff. We will return, but Roy's Bonita Springs is not quite as special as in the past.
