Everyone there is awesome!! Food is good, moo was a little salty and sauce was a little overboard. Prime rib and lobster was awesome. Crab cakes, poke platter, mochi ahi and brisket was very delish! All employees are very friendly!!! Recommended

Roy’s KoOlina is always a great place for dinner. Atmosphere is relaxing and not too noisy. The servers are always great and willing to pay special attention to allergy issues. The short ribs were delicious but a bit dry this time. I don’t know how meatloaf can be excellent, but it was. The chocolate soufflé is to die for. Once again, an excellent experience.

Food was great but service was not. We had already finished our main course when the red wine was finally served. At least we did not have to pay for it.
Anyways, we were all satisfied with the food.

Everything was perfect. Highly recommend the Pineapple martini, Catapillar sushi, and prime rib.

Very disappointed with the food value. My wife had the macadamia nut ono or moon fish which was very fishy in taste. I had the braised ribs which were good but really just roast beef. Desserts were very good.

This was an unexpected find. Stumbled across it on Open Table while looking for places near the Aulani. Amazing restaurant. Great setting, fabulous food. We sat outside at dusk and loved it. Really impressed and will be back again.

This was our last hurrah before moving away from the island and we were not disappointed. From the food (we got salmon, moon fish, and butter fish with the sampler appetizer) to the service (our waiter was very attentive) to the dessert (we got the macadamia tart), everything was amazing. They even made us a little farewell dessert. I was slightly worried from recent reviews saying the service and quality has gone downhill, but maybe their server and/or the chef was just having a bad night? We loved it.

The service was absolutely fantastic until the end when they forgot to bring our tea. I was hoping to enjoy my dessert with the tea, but we needed to remind the waiter that we had ordered it. I was still wavering between a 4 star or a 5 star because the service really was good. We had the restaurant week menu, and my husband chose the beef brisket and I had the sea bass. They served free edamame which was great, and the appetizers were delicious. The fish entree was tasty, but I wasn't sure what the breaded items were. At first I thought it was more fish, but later found out it was chicken. They were okay. My husband's brisket had a lot of fat. He said it was okay. The pumpkin dessert was great. We enjoyed the atmosphere and friendly people.

Roy’s Ko’Olina provides the Dining Experience you expect to find at a Classic Traditional Roy’s dinner. Exquisite Island Catch and Island Farmed fish prepared in all kinds of unique ways with Asian Fusion side dishes that, of themselves, are worth finishing. The Bar makes great drinks with generous amounts of alcohol. Desert was exceptional even though I was totally full.

We enjoyed dining at Roy's for restaurant week. The service was fast, friendly and excellent. The food and drinks were delicious and the portions were generous. The only drawback to our experience was that we were seated directly next to the musicians on the patio - they were talented and we enjoyed the music but it was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other and having a conversation.

Parking is easy and service is great, the food is also great. My only issue is that it gets a bit loud depending on the customers or events going on.

Everyone in our party agreed that Roy's Ko'olina - Mililani Honey Mac Nut Rock Shrimp and Roy’s Original Blackened Island Ahi Spicy Soy Mustard was the best. Perfectly delicious was the beautiful ahi and sweet crunchiness of the tender shrimp. Entrees were good size portions as was the complimentary edamame. Although the wait to order was 20 minutes, we had a nice window seat that overlooked beautiful Ko'olina golf course and our water was continuously refilled by a very pleasant young man.
If only there were more days of Restaurant Week to try all the different RW menus at all the Roy's across Oahu. Looking forward to our next visit and our favorite menu items: Roy’s Original Blackened Island Ahi, Smoked Mongolian Spiced Baby Ribs, and Roy's Melting Hot Chocolate Souffle.

Through the years the quality of Roys has gone down. I’ve been dining here atleast 2x a year for the past 8-9 years. For the price point you would think you are paying for the service, ambience and the quality of the food. All of which was very disappointing on my last visit. Took my mom and family here for to celebrate my moms birthday. My dad tried the restaurant week special beef brisket and in each bite, was extremely salty. A visit from the manager was expected, but a manager did not come around. My dad ordered a second dish which was still very meh- the macadamia nut mahi I believe. Still extremely salty. While they made his second dish they gave a complimentary salad to keep him busy, which was nice. There were tomatoes that were obviously overripe. He’s not the type to constantly complain so he kept it to himself and tried to swallow it down. For dessert we were given dirty spoons with chocolate still on back of the spoon. Overall I had high expectations, all of which were sub par. I most likely will not dine at this location again.

Food and service was excellent, the guidance from our waiter in picking the perfect kind of fish was spot on. The crab mashed potatoes might have been the best I ever tasted even though it included fennel which we usually don’t enjoy.

Roy's is very good - they have friendly servers who are not stuffy, which I love to find in a more upscale place. They do food well. It is a little pricey, but there are ways to make it manageable - for this meal we ordered two appetizers and dessert - it was plenty!! We ate out on the patio which was a lovely setting - nice to see the pond and waterfall and catch the sunset in the clouds - a little windy, but worth it!
