Thank you Roy’s for making my husband’s birthday dinner amazing! He loved everything that was suggested and I did as well. The food was delicious and we both cleaned off our plates. Our server Kristyn was the sweetest and was great at recommending dishes that we should try. The trio poke with the won ton chips was our favorite. The fish was sooo soft and buttery, we couldn’t get enough. Our anniversary is coming up, and we know exactly where to go for our dinner! Thank you Roy’s and Kristyn!

This was our first visit to Roy’s, and we were impressed by the greeting by reception and the gracious seating that followed our specific instructions. Although we were seated close to a large party in a private room with the door open, noise level was not an issue. The menu was good, but price for the meal was extraordinarily high. We ordered salmon and shrimp dishes, both of which were excellent. Sushi was also delicious. The appetizer portion of salmon was sufficient for me. Overall, it was an excellent experience, but prices were very high.

We are at Roy's for our 28th anniversary. The staff was friendly and greeted us with "Happy anniversary." It was a busy (Friday) night and it took 70 minutes to get our entrees, but we were provided with refillable edamame during the wait. The menu is extensive, prices high, the portions extremely small. There is one vegan option: 4 small slices of pumpkin for $24. No vegan desserts, but we were given a small fruit bowl in honor of our anniversary. Service was outstanding, everything tasty and elegantly presented. This is a place you might want to go for a very special occasion, but don't go hungry.

Great food without a doubt! Very good wagyu steak and the lamb chops were said to be “the best I ever had”.

Our server was intricately familiar with the offerings, which was helpful since there were local items as well as signature items which were on the menu st all locations.

We went to Roy's for lunch on Monday Nov. 5 and dinner on Nov. 6. We sat outside for lunch and inside for dinner. Both locations are great! The entire staff was friendly and efficient. The Vegan is a delicious choice for lunch and it looks even more beautiful than it tastes. Thanks to all for a great dining experience!

The service and most of the food was delicious. I ordered the scallops and crispy pork. The scallops were great, but the “crispy” part of the pork was really hard and difficult to eat and the rest of the meat was bland and unappetizing. I hope that the scallops get paired with something else. My wife had the prime rib which was delicious and my mother in law had the butterfish which was equally tasty. The boys had the kids menu pasta and braised short ribs which they enjoyed. Our server was awesome and she even accommodated our request for extra fruits for our boys which really helped better the dining experience. Thank you guys for a great time (except for the pork)!

37 years after our first trip to Hawaii, we finally dined at the island state’s famed Roy’s. We should not have waited so long.

Our experience was excellent. At this particular example of the chain, we dined on their covered deck, overlooking the Ko Olina golf course, listening to a talented guitarist/vocalist.

Our meals were superb, ranging from the complimentary seasoned edamame to a crab cake appetizer, open grilled Mani Mani on a crab mashed potato base and chicken piccata, each dish was excellent with succulent preparation. We ordered a chocolate soufflé for dessert and the experience was complete.

Service was timely, knowledgeable, and personalized.

A thoroughly enjoyable experience that we had our off for too long.

It was an amazing dinner. We always go for our anniversary dinner however this year the hostess told us happy anniversary but our server never mentioned it. In the past we always were given a little special treat, but not this time, maybe they have changed their celebrations.

I went there to celebrate my 72nd birthday and from the reservation to the completion of my birthday dinner celebration with my wife of 50 years, was spectacular! But this was not my first time at Roy's, I have been to Roy's numerous times, and every time I'm here whether on business or with family and friends, it is always the same friendly outstanding services we get from all of Roy's staff. I have always recommend Roy's to my mainland friends to include family and local friends. Mahalo nui loa for great food and outstanding services! May our Heavenly Father continue to bless you and your outstanding personnel.

Food and service was excellent, we had a great table on the patio. We have 2 kids, and are always concerned they will be too noisy for a fancier restaurant like Roy’s, but they brought out food for our kids within moments of us sitting down. Which was amazing. Only reason I gave 4 stars, is because when they ran our credit cards, they had what they called a “ghost charge” on his card. When he checked his credit card statement, it had 5 charges of over $140 a piece!!

This is the second time, and we only ordered prefix menus. But the taste of food is very fine and elaborated. We enjoyed very much. In the evening many groups after the golf are gathering and the atmosphere is casual. The price is somewhat high but worth for dinner.

What impressed me the most about Roy’s was that the wine list was so affordable. So many restaurants in Hawaii are so expensive for obvious reasons. We were able to get a really nice bottle of wine for just $45. The food was excellent too!

Roy’s has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. I’ve noticed the last couple of times that the food quality is changing. The Butterfish I ate last night was over cooked and the bok Choi was over sauced. What did Anthony Bourdain day about over saucing? It’s “lazy” and “sinful.” I was disappointed in our experience last night.

Excellent dinner and cocktails with friends. Roy's accommodated us on short notice outside where we wanted. The singer/guitarist was outstanding - a very pleasant surprise and at the right sound level too. I had not dined at this Roy's in more than 10 years and it was even better than I remembered. Our vegetarians were more than accommodated with a special off-menu entree, the Bekaa Valley wine we settled on surpassed all expectations, food otherwise excellent, and the service was first-rate all around.
