Food was excellent, service was great! Everything from appetizer to entree to dessert was very good. Prepared perfectly. Would highly recommend
Excellent food and service! Highly recommend Roy's!
Great food. Pricey though. Also wasn’t expecting a COVID-19 charge added to my bill. They don’t tell you until you get your bill and ask. Bad practice.
We LOVE Roy's! Our favorite restaurant in the valley!
Value was great due to the $39/person price fixe menu. All of the fish was excellent, but the filet mignon my wife and I had seemed to be a pretty low grade cut of meat. Not very flavorful even with hers cooked at medium rare. We'll be back but we will stick with the seafood options.
Very pleasant experience. Food excellent. Service great.
We visit Roy's every few months and are never disappointed. This time was no exception.
There were fewer people which was to be expected but the quality of food and service has not suffered due to recent events. We are already planning on returning soon.
We love Roy's. The Mgr Jaye and staff are superb. Oh >> btw, the cuisine is excellent.!! 😘 Go. Let's keep the doors open.☺️
Great food and service! The ambience was outstanding!
The food is delicious. The wait staff friendly and courteous. A lot of focus on health safety and social distancing. Well worth the price.
Food is always excellent at Roy's. Especially on Mahalo Mondays!
Always excellent at Roy’s. The spare ribs as appetizers were phenomenal. The seafood sampler entrée was exceptional. Flourless chocolate cake was flawless. Excellent service, will definitely be coming back
The Butterfish is always amazing and did not disappoint. Service was great, and they did a very good job at spacing people through the restaurant due to COVID-19.
It was for my birthday. We were seated in a back room booth that was by a window that looked out to old tables and chairs strewn about. Looked like an old forgotten side patio. Food was far below par and not what we have become accustomed to at Roy’s. The entre I always get is the Macadamia crusted mahi mahi. What I got wasn’t even close to how it usually is. It was a brown mushy mess with a brown sauce . The potatoes had turned orange they were cooked and sat out for so long. Even the pineapple upside down cake was charred. We always lived going to Roy’s. If this is what you get during COVID, I will stay home.
Hostess seated us right away. The food was outstanding as well as the service.
Long time Roy’s diner who was happy that they were re-opened. Mahalo Monday just made it extra special.
We did Mahlo Monday and it was a fabulous value and food was spectacular as always.
All the locals should be attending Mahalo Monday.
Roys is one of our favorite restaurants the food is always prepared well and the service is outstanding
We go to Roy’s for special occasions, and they do not disappoint!
We LOVE this resort and restaurant! We always come here to celebrate when we are in town. Fantastic food! We recommend the Canoe for Two appetizer and the mahi mahi. Never disappoints!
The Mahalo Monday special is awesome! Appetizer, entree, & dessert for a great price!
Always a wonderful experience. Excellent food, perfectly prepared and presented with well trained and friendly staff.
We visited Roy's while on vacation in Hawaii. This was just as wonderful as the original. Wonderful seafood and one of a kind cocktails, the 1988 is my favorite!
Vacation time and our night out for a nice dinner.
Great food. Incredibly slow service.
dixie our server is awesome and the food is always spot on!!
We are visiting Scottsdale AZ and always make sure to stop at Roy’s. My husband had the special sea bass and it was prepared so delish. I had my usual butterfish. Always perfect what ever Roy’s you visit. And did I mention the pineapple martini? Yum!
Exceptional!! We got the shellfish sampler and it was superb!! We had a reservation and seating was prompt. I would recommend making a reservation as it was busy and had a wait. Well worth the wait though!!
Great birthday dinner!
Eating outside. Beautiful weather and the live musician what a great night out. Always enjoy eating at Roy’s
Very friendly prompt service. Food was excellent.
Our waitstaff FANTASTIC...thank you Remy and Jason. Short ribs soooooo tender and tasty.
Food was delicious except the service was a little slow.
We sat out in the patio, which, as always, was lovely. As soon as we felt a bit cool the staff turned on a nearby heater, and we were then quite comfortable. The food was good, except for errors made by the serving staff. We took advantage of Mahalo Monday, which is great value, and something I would highly recommend. You get to pick three courses off the regular menu, for $39.95. You get lots of choices, and excellent value. The problem, was that the surf and turf we ordered medium rare, came to the table barely more than room temperature, and mine was medium, not medium rare. For a restaurant of this caliber, this should not happen. They were gracious about redoing the meat for both of us, which was fine, but it meant a 10 to 15 minute wait. When it did come to the table, it was perfectly cooked, and nicely hot.
I then ordered their special chocolate soufflé for dessert. What came to the table 15 minutes later, was pineapple upside down cake. This is their other signature dessert, but not the one I asked for. We therefore had to wait another 15 minutes for the new dessert to be prepared. I asked for coffee, my friend asked for tea, and I said we would like it while we were waiting for the desert, since I knew that The soufflé takes extra time. Well the coffee and tea came only minutes before the desert. I will admit, after this final error, the manager did reduce each of our bills by $25, which we greatly appreciated. I would still recommend this restaurant, but, would hope that these kinds of errors are not common. I would rather have the correct food, delivered in a timely manner, properly heated and cooked, versus getting a reduction in the bill.
I have been to this Roy’s location many times, and would normally give it a five star rating. I therefore do hold them to a high standard, and when they don’t meet it, it is very disappointing.
We had a great evening and a great dinner. The food was awesome, the service was good can't really complain about anything.
What are the best meals I’ve had in a very long time. Exquisite seafood along with exceptional service. The desserts were fantastic as well.
Always a lovely experience. Great food and service! Mahalo
I made the reservation with the information that it was the 45th anniversary of our first date. No mention was made of this at all while we were there and we were given a table right across from the kitchen. When we said we would like some bread, it never arrived. The other food we ordered was very good; just a little disappointed about the bread and nothing said about our special occasion.
We have been to Roy's on numerous occasions. The noise level was at a much higher level than we had experienced during previous visits. The table next to us was extremely obnoxious with no intervention from the management or staff. Somewhat disappointing.
