We came here in 2013 for our wedding dinner, we eloped & were recommended by our wedding planner. We returned again in 2015 for our anniversary & then again a few nights ago to bring all our children. We’ll be back. :)

We have been to Roy’s all over the U.S. including Kauai and Maui and the lower 48. This is the second to worst Roys I have ever been to. The first worst being Roys at Desert Ridge in Scottsdale,AZ.
The service was slow and the waiter was rude.
The food was cold and served unceremoniously.
The waiter argued about the bill and he was incorrect. We plan on coming back to the area in June and we will not be going to this Roys. I don’t know if all the Roys have turned this bad or just this one is that bad.

It was pleasant, but nothing to write home about. Staff is always pleasant. My 6th visit here over the same number of years, and seems never to change or evolve. They should rethink those glaring spot lights over the terrace tables.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on November 27, 2017

When we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by a very delightful receptionist who made us feel very comfortable. Instead of a traditional dinner, we decided to order various appetizers which proved to be more than adequate to satisfy our taste buds. The Dim Sum plater and the Butterfish blended flavors from our local Hawaiian sea but for me, the Escargot was the best. Roy's in Koolina is a great place to celebrate any occasion.

The service was unmatched. My water must have been topped off at least 15 times. It never got below half a glass. We were treated to a complimentary, scrumptious appetizer and a delicious complimentary molten chocolate lava cake dessert. I chose the scallops for dinner and my wife chose the grilled, colossal shrimp. Neither of us were disappointed. We enjoyed very tasty cocktails as well. I enjoyed the Old Fashioned and she had a great mai tai. Everything was very, very good, but the service was especially top notch.

Great/perfect as always! Very busy (Thanksgiving Day), more noisy than normal. I think one of the managers help serve us, but everything ran smoothly.
We did have one small problem.....We had a Roy's e-gift card, that they were not able to get the system to accept. I'll call the number on the card to get this resolve.

I also ordered my son the braised short ribs off the kids menu. His food was amazing. We both loved it. The service was great, everyone was very nice, and they did a great job acknowledgeing my son's birthday!

The chef should be congratulated on preparing such wonderful food. Our food was excellent. However 1. Restaurant is noisy. 2. Our table was directly beneath an a/c vent which ensured we endured the coldest temps possible and to finish of the evening our server mistakenly used my credit card against someone else’s check and did not let us know. I only discovered when my bank notified me. They have however assured me that this will be corrected.
