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 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.

My wife and I went to Roy's as a date night out and we loved the Butterfish and the salmon. The Ahi tuna was good, but I didn't care for the mustard sauce with it. All in all, we would go back again.

Been here in the past for special occasions and wanted to celebrate a special evening with friends.My meal was not up to par with past visits and our server ,although she was attentive she kept interrupting our conversation with service related questions,A bit annoying .Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal although two of us were not happy with our entree and felt it was not as good as we had remembered on past visits.

We tried this restaurant last year and had a truly awful experience with a nasty server, however, the food was good. We decided to try it again on Valentines Day while vacationing in Scottsdale this year. We made reservations for four with open table. We were contacted by the restaurant to confirm the day before. Because I have food allergies I always pick my food out from an online menu before visiting a restaurant with friends so I can easily order. We saw there was a Valentine Pre Fixe Menu, however, no where on the web site, on the reservation site or in the restaurant confirmation was it stated that this would be the only menu offered for thee evening . We had drinks at the bar and were seated at 8:00 and then notified this was the only menu. I informed the server that I could not eat most of the items on the pre fixe menu and asked for some reasonable changes based on their usual menu. I was told it was the pre fixe or nothing . It was too late to go elsewhere, especially on Valentines Day. I asked the server to see what the kitchen could do for me after having to explain my allergies in front of everybody. She returned from the kitchen and said they could do nothing. So on Valentines Day I sat eating nothing while my husband and our friends uncomfortably ate their meal, of which they had uneaten items that they did not want. The finale to the evening was the bill was completely itemized as a usual bill not a pre fixe. I have never had a restaurant refuse to attempt to accommodate me and in today’s awareness of allergies this is unacceptable. I will never set foot in a Roy’s restaurant again as I was embarrassed in front of friends and left hungry on what was suppose to be a fun and special evening.

We have eaten at Roy’s in many locations and must say this was not the same experience. Service was not at their level nor the food or setting. It was fine but for the price it would not be one we would repeat.
