Well trained staff with well prepared tasty food. Nice wine list! Not inexpensive but worthwhile.
Service was horrible. Everyone around us was complaining. Not sure we will go back. There is too many great restaurants and when service is poor and nobody at door to ask how everything was..... not sure how they will survive. Food was very good.
The best server there was Mike. He was attentive and paid attention to our needs and made sure we had a great night!
Very loud, hard push by waitress to order dessert before meal, messed up one order but recovered nicely
EXCELLENT. 4.5 Stars. YES, we will be back. DETAILED VERSION: We are fans of Roy's, and have been to this location and many others across the islands and mainland over the last 2 decades. We expected a very good to excellent meal and were not disappointed. SERVICE: We had reservations on a Saturday night and it was full. Promptly seated in a booth (by request) overlooking the restaurant. Our server - Alex - was very good. The right amount of attention and timing to enhance a nice evening. FOOD: We split the wedge salad - very good. Tasty and the right size to be split. We also had the pork ribs appetizers - the BBQ sauce was excellent on the dish. My wife had the Macadamia Nut Mahi Mahi for her entree. Excellent. Perfectly cooked and prepared the way she likes it. This was not her first time ordering it, so we had others to compare against. I had the Swordfish - Very good. A little less lettuce and something like green beans would have made it one notch better, but it was satisfying. We also had a cocktail and wine - reasonably priced for what you get. We did like the option of premium wines by the glass - a nice touch by Roy's. OVERALL: Another nice experience. Recommend you get reservations on weekends.
My wife and I hosted a dining out over the weekend. Had 12 couples with us and decided to try a new restaurant. The food was great and only surpassed by our server's ability. Will definitely be back - both in a more intimate setting and amongst our large group of friends. Our Kudo's to Roy's!
Perfect, as always!!!
I have been to many Roy's on many occasions. This by far was the worst one ever and it went from one of my favs to not going back again. Service was atrocious, food was fair and thanks for the "open kitchen" so I could see my food sit in the window there for 12 minutes with a total of 7 tables in the restaurant. Should have been a hint for me. Could have gone to the Cheesecake Factory across the street, and gotten a nice processed meal for half the price. Never again Roy!!
Delicious as always! A little pricey but I guess the prices are set by the quality of the food. The Ahi is the best we’ve had anywhere in the country. Hubby had s steak and it was cooked perfectly and very tasty but he kept stealing pieces of my ahi! Tried the canoe for two but not sure would get it again simply because the ribs were too sweet for me and the crispy wraps contained red peppers which I also can’t eat. Everything else was perfect. We’ve been to Roys before and the fish is always excellent. Generally always looking for something unusual without being overly sugary for appetizers.
Excellent food and unique preparation. The prawns were outstanding. Rachel was a charming server.
Compared it to our experience at Roy’s in Hawaii - very disappointed. The butterfish my wife had she described as “mediocre” and though the scallops were okay - I have had better. Perhaps not fresher but more well prepared.
A little loud for business
We love Roys! We have never had a bad meal And theservice is always great. This night we were celebrating a 50th Birthday and Roys made it extra special.
I've been coming to Roy's for the years and have always been very pleased with their food, service and experience. Chocolate souffle is a must have.
Went for lunch.
The place was like a morgue. Two tables occupied in the entire restaurant. Food was good. Service was horrible. I got there at 11:30am for lunch. My tea was delivered right away. I waited 30 minutes for the waiter to take my order. In an empty restaurant.
I would never return.
Roy need to give this one up!
Food specially the fish was awesome. The desert pineapple up side dawn was m was delicious
Our table of 3 visited the restaurant for lunch on Monday. It took 22 minutes to receive our edamame appetizer. We had the box lunch and the soup was excellent however the lettuce for the salad was old and bitter. There were only 3 shrimp and a tiny scoop of rice which was cold and hard. Not worth $18. Another person in our party ordered salmon which was cold and over cooked and taken off the bill. We were there for an hour and 50 minutes which is ridiculous for a lunch.
Highly, highly disappointing.
Service was horrible! Took over a hour to receive food. Wait staff were un attentive. Manager did not help her crew... they were obviously having trouble and she was of no assistance
We had a 30-45 min wait after our reservation time but the bar was courteous and we didn’t mind too much. Food was delicious and our server, Keith, was excellent with expectations.
Our waiter, Kyle, was fantastic. He made sure we were happy throughout our meal. Dinner was fantastic and we had a great night!
Excellent food and service as usual.
Big fan of Roy's - I have been to 8 different ones including Hawaii. Disappointing night - did not have the local chef's featured fish Opah. Then had to go to our 3rd wine choice as the first 2 were out of stock. Pineapple Upside Down cake was slightly burnt on the edges...
Always enjoy our experience at Roy's restaurant. The presentation is beautiful, and the food so good. One of our favorite places.
We have been dining at Roy's for about 8 years; they used to be a wonderful restaurant with impeccable and professional service, fresh and perfectly prepared food We've been regulars and have probably dined at Roy's nearly 80 times, so I believe that we can say with authority that the Roy's of today only has the name in common with the Roy's of yesteryear. 1 constant has been Joe: expediter, kitchen manager - the last of the Mohicans. He has always been imbued with that genuine Ohana charm and friendliness that embodies the Roy's brand. GM Josh appears to be doing his very best to captain a sinking ship. On Feb. 8 we dined there and were seated in a booth. Again, we have been there around 80 (maybe more?) times, so all the staff know us by sight and name. The floor manager, Joy, came by and leaned in and in a conspiratorial tone inquired if she could ask us about something. Imagine how stunned we were when she asked us if we would be willing to vacate the booth and have our drinks and meals brought over to a table in the back of the restaurant so she could accommodate a couple who really wanted a booth. Seeing our hesitation, she offered to throw in a $50 gift certificate. We were so shocked that we just nodded at her and then wondered what had just transpired. The food has gone downhill, as well. All too frequently, we have had to send meals back as they have been under-cooked. Last night, both my wife's salmon and my burger (first time tying one there, by the way) were raw. Her salmon was flavorless whereas in the past, it has been marinated in Roy's special teriyaki sauce, which was delicious. The namasu had not been pickled at all: it tasted like crisp cucumbers in a vinegar wash. I will say that the bartender was great; she made a perfect martini, and Joe, ever the emissary of classic Roy's ohana, bought us a round. Mahalo, Joe!
To Roy's I sadly say, Aloha - it's been fun.
I have been to Roy's on numerous occasions and the dining experience has been great. However, my recent experience left me very disappointed and in all honesty very frustrated. The noise level in the restaurant made it very difficult to speak with the people I was dining with let alone practically impossible to speak to and hear the wait staff. We ordered an appetizer which never arrived and there appeared to be significant confusion on the part of the wait staff when this was brought to their attention. Part way through our entrees we ordered the soufflé, which is excellent. One for everyone at the table. When desert arrived, we were served one soufflé for three people, seriously. Now I don't want to single out any of the staff and the majority of our issues stemmed from the noise level in the restaurant and just not being able to communicate without feeling like we were yelling, but the cost of a meal for three was not worth the disappointment and frustration. I will say the food that we were served was excellent.
Good experience. Walking distance from our hotel.
Roys in our home city has always been a favorite over many yrs. This time we were In Tampa & found a Roys very close to our hotel. Like our "usual Roys" we found the food, service, decor, all to be awesome. Like other Roys, best Mai Tai's outside of Hawaii. Overall a great evening. Food was terrific. I have eaten at Roys in several different locations and never been disappointed. Consistently great place in every respect, especially the quality of food.
Great meal from cocktails to dessert. The staff was helpful, friendly, and the pacing was good. The food was excellent appealing to the eye, and mouth. We had a great time.
From the moment we got there, they were Very courteous. Our waiter was very courteous and friendly. The food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends.
One of the best filets I have ever had - cooked to perfection! My husband had Roy's Trio and was also very pleased with his meal. I would definitely recommend for a nice night out. Great wine list and prices were not insane.
The prices were high end but the food was not. Also, the food came out luke warm. The manager did provide us with gift cards.
First time eating at Roy’s and had a great dining experience. Waiter was very attentive and steered us towards some of his favorite dishes that did not disappoint! Appetizers, food, and dessert each came out fast and hot. Also would say the jalapeño margarita was probably the best I’ve ever had!
Little pricey, but certainly worth it for a nice date night out.
Date night with wife! Good food different cuisine
Tomahawk was flavorless, but everything else was good.
This is the first time we have ever sent food back due to poor cut of meat and poor cooking technique, only to have an even WORSE replacement. Also, the Ahi was fatty and the Salmon did not look fresh. Cannot believe a Beard awarded Chef allows such inferior products into his kitchen!
Food was good but service was lousy. Won’t be back.
The service was horrible
We dine at Roy’s quite frequently this was the worst..
Great food and great service. I would highly recommend for special occasions.
This was our first time here and we had a great experience. Our server was very attentive and took wonderful care of us throughout our dining experience. We had the boat for 2 as an appetizer so we could sample a few things and everything on it was delicious! I got the trio for a main course and hands down the Alaskan black cod or “butterfish” was the best, if we go back, I would definitely get that on its own instead or the trio! Overall, we loved it and will likely be back soon!
