Good food and service. I do wish it was a bit more quiet. In the booths you could hear your neighbors discussions
We really enjoyed our dinner. The outside patio dining was wonderful. It’s been more than a few years since we had dined there and we won’t wait that long again!! Highly recommend
Matt was great as the server, the food was very good except the salmon was way over cooked, but the rest of the fish and sushi was very high quality.
In the past we have loved Roy's in Az and Hawaii. Service and quality at our more recent visit in AZ was unimpressive. As a result, we probably will not return, especially in Az.
Our waiter was not attentive. Our waiter did not check with the table about our satisfaction. We had to alert him there was a problem. No apology or accountability. We did not receive the bottle of wine we ordered or one of the appetizers.
Also, the food was mixed - the steak was great. The sushi order was also good. The chef's special of shrimp, scallops and risotto was small and unimpressive. Two large shrimp and two small/medium scallops - and risotto that tasted like boxed risotto - not to up to be what used to be Roy's standards. the waiter forgot we ordered wine and an appetizer.
We will not return.
Great atmosphere and exceptional food and service. The lobster bisque was a highlight but all of the courses were superb. Highly recommend the outdoor seating if you can get it. The perfect setting for a special occasion or romantic night out. We would definitely come back here again.
We love Roy's! It has been our special restaurant for 20 years. The food is wonderful as is the presentation and the service. The Szechwan-style baby back pork ribs are the best. And definitely save room for either the Pineapple Upside Down Cake with coconut ice cream or the Chocolate Soufflé with vanilla ice cream.
Great food, great service and great dining experience!
Seating experience was bad - we had a reservation for outdoor (we thought) and were told 20-30 minutes to be outside. An hour later we finally got seated.
After seating everything was excellent. Service and food were really good.
The evening started out rough with one of the rudest hosts I have ever encountered. We asked to sit outside and we were told we had to request it at the time we made the reservation. We told him we were not given that option and it was our first time here. He gave us a look and said if we did not believe him we could look at his reservation list. Just unnecessary and rude. After that though, the evening was wonderful. Dixie our sever was fantastic and the woman assisting her was on every detail. The food was delicious and hot. Hard to be I’ve such great seafood can be found in the desert.
Excellent food and excellent service
We had another great dining experience at Roy's. The service was great and the food was scrumptious. I had the trio and my husband had the Ahi. We also shared the Auntie Lei's Aloha Roll.
Great experience. Roy’s takes fish to a new level.
Roy's is one of our Native Fav's for close to 20 years. From Jaye the Mgr to Matt the bartender and all the Roy's staff they are attentive and professional. Thanks for another great patio evening with out of state friends.
We visited Roy's for a business meal with 8 people. We were seated at a round table for 8 around 6:30 p.m. The restaurant was about 1/2 full. We all sat at the table for 15 minutes until I had to flag down a waiter asking if we had someone that could help us. We then had 2 people come by to take drink orders. They seemed flustered and annoyed when we asked to also order appetizers. We then received our drinks all going to the wrong people. Then another waiter came by and said he would be helping. We had 4-5 waiters in the rotation. It was very disconnected and a bad experience. Shared appetizers were plopped in the middle of the table and the waiter knocked down glasses a few times when delivering food. The food was great, but the service really took away from that. I'm sure this is a great place, but the service needs to be addressed for this level of restaurant, experience matters.
What an amazing evening. Food was great- just as we remembered Dining at Roy’s. Service was outstanding. Clayton made sure our children (6 and 1) were well taken care of and that meant all the adults could relax and enjoy. Fantastic meal we won’t forget.
Another fabulous meal at Roy's! The server was spot on perfect and helped walk me through finding gluten free choices. Everyone at the table was most satisfied!!
As always the food was very good, but the service was outstanding. From first to last, the wait staff made us feel welcome and unrushed. All wait staff was extremely personable. It particularly impressed us that as they were offering a special menu for Easter, one of our favorite appetizers was not on the menu. Our request to have in anyway was graciously provided.
Such quality is what makes Roy's one of our favorite special occasion restaurants.
Date Night for Easter
Roy’s is a favorite place and it never disappoints. Service is always fantastic, great food options and very comfortable ambiance. We’ve enjoyed many special occasions there.
Amazing food, done to perfection. The staff was very attentive to all details. Best meal on our vacation. We would definitely go back and will recommend to friends and family.
We were a party of 4. Not very friendly hostess. Waiter was nice and friendly but too pushy on suggestive selling. Had to ask to take our order. Food took way to long to get to our table. Appetizers, salads & dinner 2 hours. Forget dessert we would have been there another hour. It did not appear to be that busy. The Best employee was the young woman who kept filling our drinks soda and water. Very attentive to clearing our plates when needed.
Need to request outdoor seating in reservation. We were somehow expected to intuitively know this even although we line 2000 miles away.
Our group of four had 3 different entres (2 steak and 2 fish/shellfish). All were delicious- even rice that accompanied the fish and shellfish dishes was tasty. We generally steer clear of restaurants in hotels but this one is worth visiting. We were pleasantly surprised as we have had a meal at a Roy's in Hawaii which was not near as good as this.
Lovely birthday meal.
We requested an outside table so we could enjoy the weekend entertainment. Our daughter and son in law and their 3 little boys were with us so we made an early reservation.
Our son and his family also 3 little boys, were visiting the week prior and we reserved a inside table. Both evenings we had an excellent meals and the service was great. The kids appetizers were very much appreciated and helped us keep always hungry boys happy. While allowing the adults to enjoy their evening as well. We had wonderful salads to start, the combo of short ribs and butterfish was excellent and finished it off with the lava cake!!
Poor service, under staffed.
The ambiance is consistently excellent. Always great atmosphere. The service is excellent. Food is delicious.
The only comment I have is the cocktails weren’t as good as they usually are for us.
Always a great experience.
The food was ok, the service was very slow and the restaurant was WAY too dark.
Great food in wonderful environment. Pleasant service but appetizers took a while out of the kitchen.
The food and service was really good. The Mahi-Mahi was particularly good and so were the ribs.
Our dinner at Roy's was special! The service was great & the food was outstanding! It was a two hour dining experience & we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The seafood was perfectly cooked. Everything was delicious & beautifully presented. I would highly recommend Roy's. The meals are not cheap, but it's worth the splurge once in a while.
We celebrated our daughters 18th birthday with 4 of her friends. Food was outstanding and our server Scott did a great job taking care of us
Service was excellent. It is always good to have an authentic Waiter from Hawaii at Roy’s. It adds to the ambiance. Food was also excellent as usual.
Food was wonderful as always!
We love the food and ambiance! Beautiful views!
Great setting for the restaurant, excellent service and food.
We are big fans of Roys. We’re from Chicago and have been to Roy’s in Maui and often dine at Roy’s in Chicago. We live in Chicago, and this location is one of our favorite restaurants. I have to say, the Roy’s at Desert Ridge was a disappointment. We enjoy dining outside so we chose the outside patio. Compared to other patio dining, this patio was nondescript-a nice fireplace, but nothing else lovely about it. The table settings were nonexistent-no candles, no lanterns, flowers - just a tablecloth. As we were seated, two of the four chair pads were stained. My menu had food stains on several pages. This is very off putting. Makes me question the care that is executed in the food. Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable, and made every effort to accommodate special requests. Food was good, but the presentation was meh. Other Roy’s seemed to arrange the food more artfully and with an orchid or other colorful touch. Food here was merely plated. We did enjoy the Canoe for Two (we had it served for four), entrees were good and chocolate lava cake and pineapple upside down cakes were the best part of the meal. We were so looking forward to our meal here, and it was merely adequate. I can only give Roy’s at Desert Ridge a C grade.
We enjoyed a superb dinner on the patio on a perfect night. The ambiance was vibrant. Between the fire torches and water features it was a beautiful venue!
Could not have been more satisfied. Party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their meal. Most had not eaten at a Roy’s and we’ll be coming back again.
We dined at the bar, and our server Ryan was very attentive, an extremely polite and professional young man. He made informed suggestions and we enjoyed our meal very much at the bar.
