What is going on at the Plano Roy's? We have been there many times and every time it is worse than the time before? We ordered the "butter"fish - so burnt we had to send it back, scallops small, cold and rice undercooked! Usually comes with a sauce, there was no sauce?? Ordered a side of asparagus-$9 for 5 asparagus, added the hard stalk part at the bottom of the asparagus was not even cut off, unacceptable! The same with the side of bokchoy! Bokchoy was sandy and gritty. Roys cutting corners, makes guests feel uncomfortable! Portions are very small for the price. Both tables next to us sent their food back! We used to frequent Roys but will most definitely NOT be back!

Service was great as usual unfortunately after the lobster bisque it went down hill. Our main courses were not at all up too par. I ordered the shellfish sampler: Lobster was extremely Salty, 1 Scallop was cool and 4 shrimps were OK. My wife ordered the beef braised short rib and it was cold and dry.
The saving grace was the Chocolate Soufflé.
Still like Roy's but a disappointing experience for the price.

Have been to many different Roys over the years, and this one was noticeably inferior. Poke Bowl appetizer was almost inedible - fish not fresh and flavors odd (tuna with trufffle oil??). Miso butterifsh was good, but portion size disappointing for $40.

Our family dines here at least once per month, so when I saw a Groupon, it was a no-brainer. I knew the special menu beforehand, and although limited -- I expected the same quality I have come to enjoy on numerous occasions. I did not feel the food was prepared well, and I can only attribute that to us being "budget" (@ $60 pp) diners this time around. The service was fine, but about the same that you would receive at a mediocre steak house, not what we are used to at Roy's. If you go, pay full price and you will enjoy yourself.

Excellent customer service! Alfredo, I believe was our waiter's name, and he went above & beyond. He was very pleasant, polite, and extremely friendly. Also management was very professional. Set a great example, and was very hands on, instead of hiding in the back where no one can see him. He actually helps his staff. Will be back! Creative cuisine, but 48 dollars for an entree is just too much.

I bought a Groupon for the prefix menu. Everything was great except the Burger I ordered. It was overcooked and tasteless. The Mongolian Pork Ribs and the Pork chop that my wife ordered was fantastic. When I got the bill they overcharged me by 10$ dollars. They calculated the burger at 29.00$ and gave me dollar amount credit towards the purchase instead of including all the items on there Prefix Menu. I have been here a few times and have really enjoyed my experience here but I feel my last experience could have gone differently.

We have been going to Roy's every year for the last decade or so and it has definitely declined over the years. They used to have the absolute best scallops in Dallas but ours were tiny and overcooked. The Haliut was crazy expensive and nothing special as well. The service was slow and haphazzard but friendly. We won't be returning.

Love Roy's as we go for special occasions. Utilized a groupon and it was great. Both our dishes were way overcooked and we told them not replace, but they ended up replacing them anyways. I thought that was very generous for groupon customers. Unfortunately the second round of food was just as overcooked (burger was well done, not medium and salmon was well done, not medium). But we thanked them and told them the food was good because we appreciated their kindness and didn't tell them it was overcooked again. With all that, we still can't wait to come back. Make sure you check out Aloha hour in the bar - 7 days a week!

We purchased a 3 course meal for 2 on a Groupon to Roy's. When the waiter brought the menu, there was a 3 course meal listed, so we thought that was what we were going to receive. It looked delicious. When we mentioned the Groupon, the waiter said there was a special "Groupon Menu" for us. The regular menu has primarily polynesian fish entrees. The choices of entrees on the Groupon menu were: Wagyu Burger, pork chop, chicken or salmon. Didn't sound like it even compared to the regular menu, but we were game to try it. Although service was very slow, we actually ended up having a very nice dinner. We had spare ribs for the appetizer, salmon for the entree, and key lime pie for the dessert. It was all very good with generous portions. We will be back to try the regular menu.

We went to Roys for my birthday on Father's Day. They had a shorten version of their menu for Father's Day that we weren't aware of. There were absolutely no substitutions. Took forever to order a cocktail. Worse drink ever. We asked for some bread and we got a look like we had horns growing out of our heads. They brought us some straight out of the cold Hawaiian roll bag tossed on a plate. Each server had a shadow server to help them. We were seated close to the kitchen. There must have been cooking problems since the whole night there were 6-12 servers standing at the kitchen serving area waiting for food. The food took a very long time to come to the table. When the food arrived, my steak was great but my sister in-law was served a warm wedge salad. My brother said his butterfish was very bland. I ordered a soufflé and all it was was a lava cake with ice cream. Overall it was a horrible very expensive experience and we will not return.

The taste of the food was really good. However my dish was not even close to hot. I mentioned it to the server and they took care of my dessert. I have been to Roy's in Hawaii and San Francisco and know how good it can be. I was slightly disappointed but still enjoyed the dish..

The Butterfish (black cod) was very tender and flavorful. However, I thought the Miso sauce was a little too sweet. The green Wasabi sauce that also accompanied it was much better and not too hot or spicy at all. My husband's filet was extremely tender and tasty. We shared the Crispy Chicken egg rolls for an appetizer. They were only ok; I never tasted any chicken. We also shared the grilled Caesar salad, which we both really liked. The molten chocolate cake was a great ending.

The service was very good and the atmosphere very nice.

Roy's has been in Plano for quite a while and is sometimes overlooked. Don't make that mistake. They have consistently some of the best fresh fish in Dallas. The Butterfish is to die for.
The appetizers are all good. In fact all the food is top notch and something that I would recommend without hesitation. Also be sure to save room for what I consider to be the best chocolate souffle anywhere. Perfect for special occasions or just a perfect night out. LOVE IT!!

We were pleasantly surprised with our first experience at Roy's! We were looking for somewhere new to try for brunch not too far from home, and they came up as an option for reservations. Roy's is listed as a seafood restaurant but it's a Hawaiian fusion (still seafood-forward) so we weren't sure what to expect when we got there. The mimosas were fantastic, fresh squeezed OJ and the bloody marys we saw go by looked pretty impressive as well. Our server was attentive without being overbearing and kept our drinks full. We tried the crab cake Benedict and the brioche and eggs and would absolutely order both again! Already planning a return trip to try more of their wonderful brunch menu!
