Roy's has been a favorite of ours over the years. We always stop by when in Hawaii. Roy's Ko Olina didn't disappoint as we celebrated our 25th Anniversary. The Mahi was remarkable...service is always top notch. Will be stopping by one more time before we leave the island. Five stars.

Our server, Ginger, recommended the pineapple martini which was delightful. Her meal descriptions and recommendations were spot on. The butterfish and opi were wonder and full of flavor. The potatoes were dry and disappointing.

Very good food with a Hawaiian touch. Service was ok but our server forgot our wine at dinner. They made for it with a free glass. Casual yet quite.

We enjoyed our first dinner on Tuesday, we brought another couple on Thursday. At sunset, we find dining in the open-air bar area to be terrific. Generous room between tables, a nice quiet setting with the 18th fairway as a backdrop. It looked like they might have a singer on weekends.

Both nights, we asked for some "off-menu special requests" which they were able to accommodate. Nothing big time but appetizer-sized portion rather than an entree, a slightly different side. Example, I did not want the poke trio, and they put together ahi poke island style, delicious. We added an appetizer-sized portion of butterfish, Roy's style, and a bowl of little-steamed rice. In fact, two did this.

With a coupon from the Marriott, we were compt a couple of small appetizers which was very nice. The pineapple martinis, island old fashion, and some nice vodka made for a great opening. If you are a wine drinker, we didn't see anything special in the limited wine list.

The two couples split orders of the pineapple upside-down cake and melting hot chocolate souffle with vanilla bean ice cream. And their coffee is good.

Shout out to the professional yet island friendly server Ginger. She was great the first time and we asked for again and she was even better. And, a bus name Landon, student, was a good as it gets. He should be serving too. He service orientated but has a personal flair. These two were so excellent we stopped by and t talked to the manager about our great experience.

This place is about taste. If you are about portions, probably not your place. Price points are a full notch below the resort signature places across the street where the sunset view is the thing, but fine ambiance inside and out make this a nice choice for fine dining in Ko'Olina.

Dining at Roy’s is one of the best culinary experiences you can have. The food and drink are prepared with the utmost care and love. The taste is is out of this world. The service is second to no other. You are treated like ohana there. The oversight by Taisei Lee, the service and expertise from Quinn, and the overall care from Tiara are fantastic. While the prices may be a bit on the high side, the total experience is worth is every penny.

Loved Roy's at Ko Olina! We had a reservation at 6:15pm in a Friday night. When we arrived we were promptly greeted and then seated. We sat next to the singer out in the patio - sang songs from my era growing up. Loved it. Server made some recommendations, based on my nut and coconut allergy. We all a sampler appetizer, butter fish and hamachi. Absolutely delicious! For dessert we shated the chocolate souffle and the bread pudding. Loved both! Staff was great! Loved our experience and will come back!

Great place to eat make sure you stop and eat at all of them while in Hawaii last night we had reservations at 7:30 we were sat rite away we ordered the pineapple martinis usually they are excellent but tonight they were a little week. I ordered mine in a rocks glass instead of a martini glass the bartender filled it up with ice my wife had more in her martini glass I should have sent it back $14 for half a drink so it you ever do this make sure you say NO ice!!!We ordered dinner wife got the meat loaf with asparagus it was really good. I order the short ribs fix plate first I had an appetizer that was awesome it had pork ribs and a mini egg roll the beef was served with a Cauliflower potato mix wow so tender lots of flavor. Then it came with desert had the chocolate Soufflé it finished the night. I then ordered a Basil Haden on the rocks it didn't taste at all like basil Haden it was very nasty there's NO way that's what it was I drink it often. I Should had got the Blanton great price $9 on the rocks. Except for that we love eating at Roy's. We have eaten at the Roy’s in Maryland, Arizona and also here In Hawaii. Our server could have been a little more attentive but overall she was fine.

We had a much better experience for my birthday at the Baltimore location than the one here in Hawaii.

Great meal, engaged waiter, but he gave us the wrong dessert. We did not eat the desert until went back to room as we were to full at the restaurant. Not a big deal, but the waiter was so convinced that we would like the macadamia nut dessert we ordered it. He sent the chocolate dessert.

Food was good but service was sub par. We were hardly greeted with a smile and our waitress literally rushed our entire meal. For example, she was giving us our dessert spoons before we were even half done with our main course. We literally were done eating our meal in under an hour, and that wasn’t by our choosing. For all the good reviews we left feeling extremely rushed and slightly disappointed.

We were greeted when we arrived and the back of the house greeted us from the kitchen. We ordered drinks and has some appetizers - mongolian spicy ribs, fried brussel sprouts, crab cakes and tomato salad. Every morsel was gobbled up because it was so delicious! On to the entrees - baked hamachi, grilled hamachi with crab, prime rib with shrimp, prime rib with lobster and the vegan option. All equally mouth watering. Yes, we took home some left overs. We had to leave some room for dessert - chocolate souflee with vanilla bean ice cream and rasberry sauce, and bread pudding. An excellent time was spent with family! Thanks Roy's!
