It was good. We come every year for our vacation trip. My husband ordered a Ribeye steak and butter fish for a surf and turf and asked for Steak sauce and was told he didn’t need it because of the Demi glacé. That was not good. Please don’t tell customers their palate. I ordered my favorite their short ribs and even though the flavor was good they were mostly fatty parts. So disappointed at that. Drinks good and appetizers good.

The food was good as always and really happy that the pineapple upside down cake is now on the menu officially! This cake is really the best and worth the trip for.

The food and atmosphere at the restaurant was outstanding, the server was friendly, provided good service and chef Darrell made a birthday dessert for the person who’s birthday we were celebrating. She enjoyed the dessert.

My wife and I had a reservation for 5 pm on a Saturday night. We arrived five minutes early. The place was pretty empty at that time. The hostesses were just hanging out, but they made us wait until it was 5:03 pm. In our opinion there was no reason to make us wait. We know only of other restaurant that makes you wait until your time is up when your table is available a few minutes early. Most places seat you immediately if the table is ready.
Later the general manager came to our table. We told him about that experience and he said that there was most likely a reason for making us waiting. He never came back to explain.
After this rough start the food, wine and service were all excellent. We had a table with a nice view of the golf course. While the food prices seem to be an the high end, the price for bottled wine is very reasonable.

I love Mahi but this was the worst I have ever had. Very fishy tasting, I couldn’t eat it. My son, who loves fish
Also didn’t like it. I will not be returning to Roy’s. better places to eat on the island in this price range.

If your looking for local Hawaii meals with that island flair, then Roy’s Ko Olina is for you, ie birthday, anniversary, just to catch up with old time friends. Indoor or outdoor it’s is a beautiful venue. Highly recommend

Canoe for 2 is misleading-we ordered thinking it would be a cool signature dish served in a canoe but it was served on a plate and not even in the shape of a canoe

The prix fix menu is a good value

Decor /ambiance needs some help and it was freezing inside

The fish I ordered tasted “off”. There are better places to eat in Ko ‘Olina. The service was fantastic though. My husband wanted me to send my dish back but that always makes me nervous. His steak was good. The cocktail menu is not super exciting.

We have dined here many times throughout the years while visiting Hawaii. Last night we had dinner for four, we all purchased the price fix menu with wine option. Excellent short rib with fresh fish entree, no disappointment at all. Great food, great service.

The food was fabulous! Spring egg rolls melted in your mouth and the duet fish dish of butterfish and grouper was excellent. The fish was cooked perfectly.
However, my drink tasted like it had no alcohol in it or only one of the alcoholic ingredients. The server kept disappearing for long periods and dinner took way longer than it should have because we were always waiting for him to come back.

We were rushed the entire dinner. Our entrees arrived and we had only taken literally one bite when the waiter came up to us and asked would we be having desert. The restaurant and music was very dated felt like a throw back to a bad lounge setting from the 70’s. The butterfish was very good, but the grouper was average. Overall the rushed service was quite disappointing.

The service was mediocre- waiter didn’t check on us after our food was delivered. My husband hamburger had a pocket of “juice” that ended up in a pool in his plate. Fish and chips were tempura style and decent. The location is perfect after a round of golf. The food and service are reasons I wouldn’t recommend. Maybe it was an off day? As it wasn’t very busy and it was the beginning of the lunch service. Still, I think there are other great options near by.

The food was delicious! But more important, I was very impressed with my server and, especially, the busboy/serving assistant. He went above and beyond, taking my wife and my photo and even chasing me down to return the credit card I had dropped on the floor by accident. What a fantastic employee!

The restaurant is dated with no atmosphere. Food (Paella) was just OK
heavy on the rice and not much in quality seafood or sausage. Used a voucher for complimentary chocolate soufflé…which was delicious, however.
Staff is attentive and accommodating,
but a remodel would go a long way to make a more pleasant dining experience.
I would recommend Roy’s for lunch only.
