We were celebrating my brothers birthday and Fathers Day. Ive been to Roy’s before, but today they gave complementary vegetables with dip to my kids. Roy’s has great food and they are very accommodating.

The food that took over an hour to get to us came out cold. How is that possible??? Yes the manager told us there was a backup in the kitchen even though they have been busier. Doesn’t make sense to me. She did provide us with a complimentary dessert. This food wasn’t even worth $1. I will never return to a Roy’s again. Too bad since it use to be good back in the day.

Went here for restaurant week. Probably the best salmon I’ve ever had in my life. Chocolate torte was amazing as well. Lights along the parameter seating area were too bright. Long wait between first and second course but worth it.

We were two couples out for a nice dinner and cocktails. Our visit to Roy's was a bit disappointing. Our server was excellent and certainly was the bright spot in our evening. Ticket times were ridiculous. The table next to us was actually getting ready to walk out when their food arrived, so they asked that it be packaged to go. When our food finally came out two of four dinners were very good, a third was so-so. Mine was not good. I ordered Roy's Trio. The salmon was very overcooked, the tuna wasn't seared properly on the outside and was just mush, the butter fish was edible but not great. The pineapple upside down cake for dessert was excellent and the cocktails were very good. We would not choose to go back based on our overall experience.

dinner and service was above average. Only disappointment was on a Friday at 7pm it was odd that the Scallops entrée was not available. Not sure how a main entrée is not available at that day and time. Honestly, it was more than odd, it was inexcusable. The restaurant was about half full.

2nd time there in two months and we were seated in the overflow meeting/dining room despite ample seating in the main restaurant. Manager is amazing but our waiter was severely lacking. The food, however, was very good.

Decided to spend our 20th anniversary without much fanfare. The bar atmosphere at Roy's was perfect. Kind of a quiet evening and after a few handcrafted cocktails (great job Mario) we dove into a few of the sushi happy hour rolls, not to mention a bowl of edamame. The ebi and lakanilau sushi rolls were very tasty. We then tried the ahi and aloha rolls and they were just as good.
All in all, a great meal, great bartender interaction and a fun relaxing evening was just what we needed.

Saturday my wife and I went to Roy’s in Tampa for an early dinner. We both ordered some drinks which were fine and then split a sushi roll and a salad for appetizers. The salad was ok but was very warm but the sushi roll had so much acid from lemon or lime, it was inedible. For dinner, I ordered the bacon wrapped bone-in pork chop which sounded great. What came was a fairly tasteless thick chop grilled with the taste of bacon. Not anywhere what I expected. My wife ordered a Hawaiian fish dish which she said was all right. For dessert we had the pineapple upside down cake which was the best part of the meal. The service was ok but not as good as it has been. Having been to Roy’s many times before, we were quite disappointed especially at these prices.

Nice place, good service but poor value. I believe that with fairer prices, more generous cocktails, Roy's would do much more business

Have eaten at Roy's over a dozen time and have always been satisfied until my last visit. Was surprised to see the parking lot half empty on a Friday night and a number of empty tables. The quality has gone down, service has gone down and it was just a mediocre experience at best. Also the prices have gone up, maybe to compensate for the lack of patrons. Value has been diminished considerably.

In my opinion Roy’s is one of the top restaurants in the Tampa Bay Area. The food is outstanding, and the wait staff treat everyone special. This restaurant is a real treasure in Tampa. Everyone needs to try Roy’s at least once, and you will be a customer forever.

We arrived at 1:30 and left at 3:00 pm. Food took an hour to arrive after the appetizer. The kid's meals were not at all tasty. The chicken fingers where burn out. The price for the mother's event was $44.00/pp. The value for the kid's meals were not in line for pricing. The desert took another 20 mins to arrive, even though it was pre-made. Not a place i will return for mother's day.

Roy’s doesn’t disappoint! On a recent visit, we were celebrating a birthday and the staff was terrific! Our cocktails were perfectly made and the wait staff didn’t rush us to order our food right away. When dinner arrived, each dish was delicious. The special touch was the “ surprise “ dessert for the birthday boy- delicious lava cake! Our evening was totally great!
