Our lunch to celebrate 2 college graduates was wonderful. We started with appetizers (lobster potstickers, tasty ribs, and edamame) and cocktails. One of our guests decided to have 2 of the tasty rib appetizers as her lunch, 2 other guests ordered from the lunch menus (noodles & short ribs plate) and 1 guest wanted the butterfish dinner meal which the Chief accommodated upon our request. We finished off with dessert and a cappucino. Each of our plates were presented beautifully and tasted even better. Our server, Kathleen, was a delight and met all of our service needs. She recognized us from previous visits & acknowledged us. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, our celebration and visit. Roy's is just a fantastic restaurant serving quality food and service.

Consistently one of the best in the Roy’s chain in regards to the food quality. Service always good. Can be a bit noisy, but it’s a popular place. Recommended.

A real gem in Pasadena. Old-world class and service with great quality food and original flavors. Puts a lot of the newer fancy-pants restaurants that have opened up with all the same kind of food to shame! They treat you like family, royal family. :) Thanks Roy's.

We had another great time at Roy’s! Food, service, and ambiance were fabulous. The thing that we noticed differently was when we had our leftovers packed up. We noticed a regular plastic bag was given instead of either no bag at all (no problem there) or a paper bag that we have known to be used in all the times we have been to Roy’s. Other than that Roy’s is always a great place to dine in. Thank you!

I’ve always loved Roy’s and have had great experiences here. This New Year’s Eve dinner was not very good however.
The service was poor and slow. Not the usual top notch service. And we went early so it wasn’t that busy.
The food was not very good. I always get the butterflish, which is always amazing. It was actually fishy. I couldn’t eat it.
The appetizer, I was told was not spicy. I spent the next half hour In hell from the spiciness.
The soup and salad were good and dessert was quite nice.
Very surprising that it wasn’t spectacular for nye. Especially for that price.

Servive and food was very good. The manager came to the table to make sure everything was excellent. I really appreciate that effort. The food was delicious. I had the wedge salad and the short ribs. Yummy! The upside down pineapple was great too. I enjoyed the Bell Gloss Pinot Noir.
