Service was amazing and so was the food.
I would have given Roys a five star for food and service except for two issues. My fillet of Alaskan Cod served me was the tail end of a fillet, narrow and thin. Sent it back, and received in place a wonderfully cooked appropriate piece of fish. My wife ordered wine with her main meal, and it was delivered late, well into her meal. Other than this, it was a wonderful evening event.
It was a four course meal and i thought we were given several choices that looked good. The best part of the meal were the appetizers. The pork ribs and the lobster potstickers were great. The miso soup was one of the best I had ever had. The entree was what you'd expect so good not great. And the dessert was basic but alright. The drinks were reasonably priced - jalapeño margarita!! Valentine’s Day so take it with a grain of truffle salt.
fabulous restaurant great menu and coming back in april
We went at 6pm with reservations we made 2 months ahead of time. We were taken from the front of the restaurant passing every single empty table as we walked all the way to the back.
We were seated next to a wall that cut the back of the room only to find out on the other side of the wall was the bathroom toilet. Had a great dinner listening to about 50 toilet flushes in an empty restaurant.
Really Roy's this was the best table you can offer to someone who reserves 2 months ahead and comes in on your most empty times?????
I've been to this Roy's over 6 times and this time the menu was changed and different than the original Roy's in Hawaii. Too bad. Prices were very high for the value. Fish (okah) was dry. My friend had a server accidentally drop a sauce or something on her clothing. Not all the original Roy's menu items were on the menu. This is a nice place if someone has never experienced Roy's in Hawaii but this restaurant has ventured away from the original theme somewhat.
Excellent food. We had salmon and ahi. No one prepares it better. Wine list is not strong.
I have been to a Roya in Hawaii and found it to be worth the price. However, the SF experience did not hold up. The scallops were tasteless as was the shrimp and rice dish. The appetizer platter we ordered was very good, 2 in a canoe for 4. And my dining companions enjoyed their mixed seafood and mixed fish grill. Hawaiian martini was delicious. But our satisfaction didn’t match the 400 dollar check.
Our service was impeccable! From the moment we sat down until we were leaving the restaurant, they made us feel welcomed and special. The food and desserts were amazing. The ambiance was nice/romantic, but not too stuffy. We live 35 minutes away, but would make the drive to dine here again.
I've been going to Roy's for many years although it has been awhile since my last visit. They have a great happy hour, which I was glad to see was still excellent. We started with appetizers at the bar and then moved to sit down to an early dinner. Loved the 1000 point dinner as we were dining by 6pm. The food, as always, was fabulous. At the bar we had parmesan fries, the famous ribs and a sushi roll. For dinner we had a wedge salad followed by the always delicious misoyaki butterfish and the scallops with the black rice which had a hit of coconut in the sauce. Yum. The prices though seem to have gone up significantly - the fish dish was $46 and the scallops were $40. This pricing might work on vacation in Hawaii in a location where there are limited options, but for here seemed quite high, even for SF. At a minimum, I would hope for a bigger portion at those prices. Excellent food and service but I was glad I had a gift card!
