Roy's did not disappoint. We both had the chance to try multiple fish dishes with the Trio and the 4-fish dishes. Each fish comes with appropriate accompaniments, providing a great variety and quite a lot of food. Don't miss the Chocolate Souffle!

We’ve always had great dinners here in the past however it appears there’s been a huge turnover in staff. No special attention for anniversary, steak was dry and was replaced, overall attention was mediocre. Not how it used to be.

I hardly ever do reviews, but felt it was important to pass my comments on to management. I went to Roy's on a date on Friday, December 1st. We had 6:15 pm reservations in which we arrived at 6:25 pm(we called to let them know we were running late). The hostess was very pleasant. We ended up having a server that first greeted us at the table that said that he would take our order, since the other server had not made it to our table. The server that took our order ended up being the server for us that evening. He was pleasant. He seemed busy attending to a few tables, because it took a little while to get our food and to get him to bring the check to the table. I enjoyed my meal. It was the short rib. My date's meal was scallops. It was a $30+ dish and it had 4 scallops and some greens and other dish side. One of the scallops looked like it had been cut off because it had a straight edge to it. It was not adequate; however, we did not mention anything because we were getting very close to the needed time to leave to make it to our show on time. We have been to another Roy's (in the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Arizona) and have always had great service and ambience, especially when only sitting outside. They still manage to create a pretty atmosphere. The lack of ambience in the back of the restaurant in which we were sat had 3 simple pictures on the wall and we had the view of the emergency exit door. We still will eat at Roy's, but will continue to go to the one in Arizona where we get a great experience.

We visited the Roy's in Hawaii and loved it so we gave the Roy's in Orlando a try and it did not disappoint! From the hand crafted cocktails to the decadent deserts it was a great dining experience. The service was great as well as the food. We ordered off the prefix menu. I can't wait to go back again!

What an amazing family dinner! I'm impressed with how they cater to the children with the children's menu, very classy. Had the lobster bisque and a sushi roll, both so good. My husband and I shared the Tomahawk rib eye for 2. Outstanding! The service was very very good and the sangria was unique. Everything was 5 star!

 (Western NC)·Dined on November 5, 2017

The food was delicious, prepared perfectly, and the service was outstanding. But there were two things that put a damper on the ambiance that surprised me in an establishment like Roy’s.
1. From my seat facing the wall I found myself looking at a piece of artwork that appeared to be splattered with dried wine.
2. And while it might be trivial we were buzzed periodically my a gnat during dinner.

 (San Diego)·Dined on November 2, 2017

The service was incredibly slow; we were told no less than four times that the food was "on its way". It reached a point where it felt like the servers were avoiding our table since it was taking 20 minutes for drinks, an hour for entrees, etc. Once the entrees came out, the last member of our party still waited another 10 minutes for his chicken Caesar salad. This was a high end business meal with clients, and it was rather embarrassing.

Ok.. so did Roy’s get sold to someone who no longer cares about delivering great service and fresh vibrant food? This used to be a great restaurant, even with it being stuck on restaurant row..

Sadly, it seems to now just be a place that phones it in relying on the expense accounts of the convention crowd.

Tasteless sushi then an hour and a half to get the main course - over cooked , mushy fish devoid of flavor.

Shame

We have been to this Roy's several times and have always loved it. On this occasion my wife and I plus our 2 children went out with another couple. The service was excellent. The adults had cocktails, which were all great. The food was fantastic, as always. If you like fish, this is the place for you. For desert we had chocolate soufflé and upside down pineapple cake and both were amazing.

We have been to several Roy's in different locations. This one and the one in Honolulu have been consistently better than all the others. Highly recommend it

I've eaten at this and other Roy's many times because my wife and daughters are fans. I think the food is just so-so and the prices excessive. If I'm going to pay Roy's prices, there are better seafood restaurants. In any case, the meal started out ok. The restaurant was busy but not slammed. Yet we waited and waited for our entrees. When the entrees finally arrived, the waiter had placed the order wrong on one of them. He apologized and offered to comp a dessert. That he actually never comped a dessert is fine. We weren't seeking free food. That he charged us for both the incorrect and the correct entrees was unforgivable. If I have my way, I will never return to Roy's.

Food was just as good as it always is. Service was, however, sub-par. Server somewhat inattentive and failed to take everyone’s drink order. Then failed to put in one of the drink orders after they were all taken. The restaurant was not busy, but the kitchen was VERY slow. Nearly an hour to get our food. Server seemed perturbed by this as well. First time I have been disappointed by this chain (have dined in Oahu, Maui, Las Vegas, Chicago, Orlando before).

 (Orlando)·Dined on October 7, 2017

The service was terrible. We arrived & was seated promptly. However, we sat for a good 20-25 minutes without water or our drink order taken. Besides being parched for some time, when I did order a bottle of prosecco, every time the Waitress poured she'd spill a good amount. My guest didn't have enough for a third glass probably for that reason. After waiting for our drinks in the first place, our waitress did ask if the manager came by, and he didn't.
Obviously the place has poor management, and the service shows.
I've been to Roy's a few times years ago, and never did I have such a disappointing experience.
Next time I'll think twice before spending $150 at this restaurant.
