Roy's Chandler Ratings and Reviews
We could not have had a better night. First we returned after our anniversary and had bought the Groupon Prix Fix coupon. We did a horrible job of not reading all the menu details and were extremely dissapointed with our menu choices. However, the manager, Chris, went out of his way to give us what we thought we were going to have. He could not of been more gracious or accommodating. This is an example of what Roy's is all about. The food, of course, was perfect as was the service.
Food was delicious. Lobster potstickers were great, and the butterfish was outstanding. Just melted in your mouth.
I'm not sure about the theming with it being "Hawaiian fusion". The menu seemed more Asian than Hawaiian to me (potstickers, sushi, etc).
I was there for a business dinner, and don't have a Roy's near me. If I did, I would probably go, but not very often. It seemed a little expensive for the food we had.
Once again, Roy's was outstanding. Great filet and mahi mahi along with mai tais finishing with the souffle - what more can you ask for. You have to ask for the edamame as it is not automatically served not does the server as if you want some. Don't hesitate to stop here.
Always great food/service! My clients asked what I recommended from the menu and I said virtually everything - there is nothing I or anyone else has had before that they didn’t like.
The only recommendation is that they learn to make a good cosmo and serve it cold and in a larger /‘chilled glass like most other restaurants (i.e. Tommy Bahama). Wines are always good. We go to Roys on Kauai and in Chandler. Always a good experience.
I've always had a great experience at Roy's. The food and service is always what you expect. It's tough going there and not getting the butterfish, but I make myself try different things on the menu and I'm glad I do... every 3rd time or so though I have to get it :). The prices are a bit on the higher end depending on what you get, but to me it's worth it if I can get what I pay for, and I always feel that way there. This last Sunday was great, I had mentioned it was our anniversary and they gave us a nice comp'd dessert and some champagne. The server was really great also, I was pretty sure she had served us before, so glad she was still good.
We went to the bar first for appetizers and a cocktail. The bartender was very friendly and the martinis were terrific. On to dinner in the dining room. The Butter Fish was splendid. My wife had the Lobster and loved it. Great wine list as well. We'll be back!
We arrived a few minutes early and were immediately seated in a requested booth. (It was very quiet - and not busy). While it very expensive to eat at Roys, we knew that going in having eaten at Roys on Maui. Service was very warm and friendly, we were very comfortable. Food arrived well spaced between apps and entrees. Husband actually tried the grilled tofu steak with various veggies and loved it. I had the filet mignon with teppan shrimp. The filet was perfect temp at medium rare, however the shrimp was dry and over cooked - I would forego the shrimp and just enjoy the filet next time or possibly try the mahi mahi. The side with the filet/shrimp was a mashed yukon potato with a carrot cut into three pieces and stuck into the potatoes along with one sprig of asparagus (cut into 3 pieces) a quartered, cooked beet and a sprig of brocolini laying next to the whipped pile of potatoes - not overly pretty - but the veggies were not over cooked and the potatoes were delicious. We did indulge in drinks before dinner (their version of a moscow mule - overly sweet and syrupy - would pass if you like moscow mules and husband had a bacon bloody mary - interesting - served with a pepperoni stick) and dessert - which we don't usually do. The pineapple upside down cake was a real treat, but we felt a little too sweet. The haupia (coconut) ice cream had chewy shredded coconut in it and we felt it took away from the creaminess of the ice cream as it was too chewy... but it's all about personal taste! We also had a delicious decaf coffee with our dessert - smelled like Kona to us. Yum. While it is not a place to go 3x a week at the cost, it is a very lovely place to go for a treat and if you like really awesome service.
I have Celiac disease and a shellfish allergy. The chef and management take it serious and understand about cross contamination. ASK for the Quad for your dinner entree, it is a wonderful sample of 4 delicious specialty fish and individual sauces they serve off their menu . Thanks Chef for taking care of me and my dietary needs!
We were disappointed with our visit to Roy's this time. As somewhat regular Roy's customers, we had received an email advertising a lobster ramen special. It looked so good, we were excited to try it and both my wife and I ordered it. Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly as good as it looked in the email. The noodles were somewhat dry and mushy. Perhaps it would have been better with some broth. The lobster was good, but it wasn't enough to overcome the lackluster meal as a whole. I had just flown back into town from Seattle that evening and I honestly had a better ramen dish up there for only $8.00!
Took our friends here for their first visit. They loved it as much as we do. Added bonus, since we belong to their "Ohana Club" we received a great offer. Buy one bottle of wine, per table, and all entrees are 1/2 price. Although, we didn't need the enticement because it is so fabulous, I had filet mingnon and lobster for $30.! Unbelievable and SO amazing. Join Ohana! Just saying.
Love the butter fish and when we were meeting friends, told them about it and now there are 2 more butter fish lovers. Service was outstanding, Chase was the best. There was a nearby group who probably should have been seated in a private room, rather distracting.
We went for restaurant week in the middle of week. It was our anniversary and we had let them know when we made reservation.
It was not crowded when we arrived and they had a table reserved for us with a Anniversary card; however, as we were served our meal we realized, we were right next to the door for a private large dinner. The staff was buzzing by every 30 seconds in and out of the room. I found it very annoying when the restaurant wasn't full that we were seated next to this.
Food was great, service slow and ambiance below expectations.
My wife and I cannot say enough about Roy's of Chandler. Our hostess, Rozanne, upon finding out that my wife and I had lost our son and that this was his favorite restaurant, went above and beyond to make this dining experience as comfortable and memorable as possible. Our server, Anthony, was also very gracious. Our son was a chef with a culinary degree from the Arizona Culinary Institute. He knew excellence when he saw it and that is why he preferred going to Roy's over many other fine dining establishments. My wife and I will honor his memory every September (his birthday month) at Roy's of Chandler.
We go to Roy's of Chandler about 4-6 times a year. Usually for special occasions like new jobs, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. It's perfect for my wife and I because she can have red meat dishes (she doesn't like fish) and I can have creative fish dishes.
Tim is usually our waiter and the best waiter in the joint if you ask me. Tim has been our waiter for each visit now for about 2-3 years. He always greets us and takes very good care of us whether we're with friends, kids or just the two of us.
Make sure to try the Butterfish at least once and if you have kids this is the dish for them. We used to love this peppered calamari dish with a spicy sauce but they took that off the menu and nobody has been able to recreate it since. We do miss that dish. The ribs are awesome according to my wife and I typically get the 3 or 4 fish sampler or Ahi with a mustard sauce. Excellent salads and starters are also changed up frequently so things don't get stale.
Make sure to order a chocolate souffle from your waiter when the dinner comes. Tim always remembers but in case your server forgets, remind them that you want the souffle or the pineapple upside down cake when your dinner comes.
Roy's is special, but not too fancy. We feel comfortable coming down straight from work sometimes for happy hour or sneaking away w/out the kids. I am surprised sometimes by the attire of others but that is Chandler and I'm not that picky. But if you are looking to impress people with an exclusive restaurant where everyone is in dress attire, this isn't the place for you. It's more relaxed with the focus on good food.
The only bummer of the place is that it is quite expensive if you experience it to the fullest. Expect to spend at least 100 a person for food and drinks/wine.
I usually take in a Roy's when I am traveling to a city where they are located. The food is consistently excellent. What separates this restaurant from some of the others, especially the Orlando Roy's is the service. Chandler is "okay". Orlando I is excellent. To me this is training. They took our order and delivered our food but didn't actually smile or engage. The decor was "okay" but nothing special or noticeable. In Orlando, it's a dining experience. In Chandler, it's a dinner. Still, the food was excellent.
This was our 5th anniversary at Roy's in Chandler ... We started with Roy's on Kauai 15 years ago ... We enjoy the food and service .... great appetizers, fish, wine and dessert ... We dine in the regular restaurant 2-3 times a years and in the bar for Aloha Hour several additional time a year ... We love it here.
First visit to this location. We brought my wife's cousin here to let her experience a taste of Hawaii. My wife and I ordered the Hawaiian Martinis. They actually tasted better than at any other Roy's locations. We all started with the ceasar salad un-toasted. The salad was a nice start. My wife ordered the lobster tail and her cousin and I ordered the short ribs. The food was like I always remember from Roy's throughout the country.
