We were here in a business conference and chose Roy’s because we had been to Roy’s in other parts of the country. The food is very good, the ambiance was good, and the service is excellent. It’s funny, excellent service makes everything better, and this was no exception. Very good food for the price also. I had the scallops and shrimp in a buttery sauce with mushroom risotto, which was great, and one of the other people had butterfish (cod), which is a house special and they loved it.

We were staying at the hotel and tried this place on our second night. Service was great. Everyone there was very nice and accommodating. We are light and all had their seemingly unique sushi rolls (I don't eat fish). I had an interesting wagyu beef roll which was great and my kids and husband enjoyed their rolls as well. Good meal and great service.

I was in Phoenix at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort for a business conference. Had dinner at the Roy's restaurant at the resort. Food was excellent. Service was slow at the start but improved later. The house chardonnay was very drinkable, and at $8 per glass a real bargain compared to the other offerings. Recommend you try Roy's when you come across one on your travels.

Very good appetizers and entrees, but the best was the upside downside pineapple cake. Excellent.

We had a wonderful belated Valentine’s Day dinner. It was a very pleasant experience. Our server, Clifton, did a terrific job and allowed us to take our time and enjoy each step in the meal.

Overall very enjoyable evening. Fish portion was a little small, but that is the only complaint.
