We walked over from the Aulani. Roy's was by far the best food we ate all week. The short ribs and macadamia crusted fish were stand outs.

This location lacks the quality of service that the price point of this restaurant requires. I had a dear friend in town and we were rushed because our reservation was at 830. You cannot be making your guests feel pressured to order, eat and leave. Such a disappointment because the Roys downtown Waikiki has outstanding service.

Don’t expect to have a tab less than $200 for 2 people, but don’t expect to have a meal that’s not worth that amount either! Scott was our server and was absolutely wonderful. Every bite of food and every drop of drink was perfect. Will definitely be back!

Love Roy's, have been to multiple locations and have had great service and great food each time. Made reservations on Open Table for this occasion, showed up on time and was promptly seated. That's where things went south. Host seated us and 20 mins went by before a server greeted us. We asked for water and drinks, and another 10 mins went by before the server quite literally dropped our drinks off at the table and sped off; they weren't even our drinks (must have been for another table). Server was rude and so we left. Perhaps it was a very busy night, but unacceptable by my standards.

Surprised and disappointed! We eat here as a treat when we come to Ko Olina. The whole team was off except for the busboy who was attentive and kept our water glasses full. The waiter was disengaged and kept trying to sell us up. The food was a shadow of what we have enjoyed in the past. We ordered several Roy Yamaguchi signature dishes and they were greasy and poorly executed. Roy would not be happy and neither were we. Save yourself the disappointment.

I’m sad... was one of our favorite places but they may have lost its touch, service was beyond slow but everyone was nice ... food was just mediocre and the prices seemed to have gone up. May give one more shot, maybe was just a bad night -_-

For the restaurant pretending to be one of the best on the island the food was just ok. Nothing really to rev about. If you’re a fan of sushi - you won’t like it there.
I ordered an old-fashioned, and I couldn’t drink it, it was that bad. I asked my waiter to change drinks, which they did, but still put it on my bill for me to discover later.
Overpriced. Not worth it.

Friendly, local style service with upscale food. The open dining room does make it a little noisy so it was a little challenging to have a conversation across the table, but very satisfying. Roy’s offers consistently high quality food featuring local products.

Celebrated our 25th Anniversary this past Friday with an evening dinner. We had a great experience with our waiter River. He had some great recommendations for food, drinks which we tried. It was all very pallet pleasing. The ambiance was ok it wasn’t what I expected. The noise level was moderately high. I would’ve liked a table tucked away from all the business and noise of the restaurant especially when celebrating an Anniversary without having to speak louder then normal to have a conversation. Overall the food and drinks were great! And our server was awesome! Thank you

Roy's has always been our favorite. We recently went in Orlando and Palm Springs and it was the typical excellent food we are accustomed to eating at Roy's. The Ko Olina branch was very disappointing. The food was very mediocre and was not the same preparation as the dishes we have eaten at other Roy's in the states. I fear Roy's Ko Olina has fallen to the sword of fair quality for high prices.

When you have wine pairing with the pre fixe meal, it is more enjoyable when the wine is poured first with a description of the wine. Then the food should be served.

We ordered sushi, ceasar salad, prime rib, and a filet and while all of it was edible, we didn't really enjoy the food. The prime rib wasn't traditional on the bone- it was sliced and well done instead of medium rare as ordered and it was tough. The ceasar salad was good enough but nothing special. The sushi and filet were better but considering that this was a $200+ dinner (even in Hawaii), it was no where near that quality. We preferred Ama Ama and MonkeyPod nearby.

We celebrated our anniversary at Roy's Ko Olina. We had another very good experience at this restaurant. We were greeted and taken to our table. The atmosphere was lively. The restaurant was very busy. Kaysee waited on us and brought our drinks. Neal, the manager, visited our table and took our orders. He was very helpful in making some recommendations about Roy's extensive menu. My wife had grilled citrus Hamachi and I had the Cowboy Combo....16oz bone-in ribeye/lobster tail. For dessert, we shared their creme brûlée and they served us a complimentary anniversary dessert. The food was great. We left with satisfied tummies,leftovers to take home and positive memories.

The food was nothing special for the price. The service was fine, but not personal, and not knowledgeable. The waitress was nice but did not try in any way to make a connection or make it special and she could not answer basic questions about the food.
