A gem just west of Michigan Ave.! Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. An eclectic customer base- families, singles and couples, groups of friends were all served at their own pace. Definitely will return! The prixe fix menú was fabulous

Consistent across the country. Yes it’s a chain, but it’s not a Seasons 54 or Brio type chain. Had brunch. I would have expected grass fed aged beef in Chicago.

Made reservations for Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend who is vegetarian, their menu is normally 30-$50 an entree but that night they had a “special menu” where everything was in the $80 range. They also normally have a vegetarian menu, which was the whole reason I booked a reservation there in the first place. That night they were serving little to no vegetarian options so we ended up having to leave and find another restaurant to eat at for Valentine’s Day! The bait-and-switch tactics plus ruining our Valentine’s Day plans really left a bad impression on me of what is likely a fine restaurant, food and service-wise.

We visit Roy's quite often. For Valentine's Day, they removed several of their signature items. Being that it was Valentine's, We could not go anywhere else without a reservation. So, we had to deal with a limited menu choice. Would have been nice to know in advance.

I finally went to Roy's after 10 years. I purchased a Gilt City coupon, which was dinner for 2 from the prix fixe menu. It was okay, but the next time I go, I'll order from the main menu. The appetizer from the prix fixe menu was just okay, the appetizers from the main menu were excellent. My entree was really good, but my husband's was nothing I'd recommend. The drinks were amazing, and the dessert was awesome. All in all, we will go back and order from the main menu.

We went for Sunday Brunch to check out their options. Unfortunately, we forgot it was restaurant week and they had a special for the promotion so we didn’t get to try their regular brunch menu. As usual, the food was excellent and the service was great. Limited menu options for this special week, but we will be back soon to try the regular brunch menu.

We went for dinner during restaurant week. The lobster bisque and salmon were the best we had during the week. We had dinner at 5 restaurants during the week. The flank steak was a little tough and the dessert brownie was a little dry. Overall, we will definitely return.

We had a great dinner at Roy's. The food was amazing, great ambiance, and the service was very attentive. Enjoyed the Sunday night prix fix menu which was a great value for all the food included. Poke delicious and must have Chocolate Souffle for dessert. Can't wait to go back.

The experience was great! I had purchased the Gilt deal for a 4-course pre-fixe menu, so the options were a little bit limited though. It included one appetizer to share (only two options), a house salad for each, two entrees, and one dessert to share. The house salad was not the best to me-the dressing didn't really go well with the veggies. The seafood entree options were the ahi tuna, salmon, and tiger prawns. We got the salmon and tuna which were both EXCELLENT. I really wanted to try the tiger prawns, but didn't want all of the udon noodles that came with it. There were a few meat entree options (chicken and rib eye I think). For the dessert, it was the pineapple upside down cake or the chocolate souflee (pick one to share with the Gilt), but I was taking my boyfriend there for his birthday and told them in advance that that was the occasion, and they brought out hte souflee in addition to the upside down cake we shose. The pineapple upside down cake was pretty good, thought he caramel tasted a little burnt. The coconut ice cream on the side was amazing. The souflee was everything you'd imagine a rich chocolate dessert to be. Their cocktails were really good too, and they even decorated the table with a birthday card and some fresh Hawaiian flowers!

Restaurant Week Brunch - great amount of food for your money, we were stuffed.

1st course -
Lobster California Roll - nice upgrade from the regular crab in the roll. tobiko on top. a whole roll for each of us!

2nd course -
We split the short rib and the french toast. Short rib was delicious, extremely tender and soft, pulled apart easily with a fork. The sauce was excellent we dredged every bite through it. French toast was fine, the caramel and vanilla sauces were the highlight, but there were fried eggs in the middle of the toast and I didn't love them. Cooked over hard, kind of boring.

3rd course-
Chocolate torte, so so rich, delicious but I was too full for it.
Lime tart - fantastic. Like a key lime pie cheesecake. but they use kefir limes so they're not as tart.

Service was rude, food quality was poor, drinks were incorrect. For $500 our table was extremely disappointed and even noted that we all felt intimidated by the large man in a suit that came to “fix” our cocktail when he asked “are you sure it’s wrong? Did you taste it!?” and rolled his eyes.

Roy’s was an amazing experience . My husband and I were running late for our reservation (to the point it was 5 mins before the kitchen closed). The host and waiter Andrew did not rush us and were very accommodating . The food was amazing (we both ordered the Shellfish Mixed Plate ). I can’t wait to do back and try or options .
