    Thank you to Roys for making it a memorable amazing meal. Every person we interacted with from Reception, our kind waitress, people who constantly filled our glasses with water and quickly removed our plates for our next course were 10/10 stars. The meal from sushi so fresh & inventive to Roy’s modern take on lava cake again 10/10 stars. The portions are so abundant best to share. Love Chef Roy the legend & his Hawaiian legacy. ROY’s!

    The food was magnificent. We enjoyed the ceasar salad (chopped); my husband had the mahi and I had the scallops, both wonderful and very large portions. Both were fantastic! THEN...the chocolate souffle - WOW! It was perfect, beautiful, light and airy and so very delicious! It is a very busy place, lots of knowledgable staff helping one another. The decor is beautiful. A bustling and energetic restaurant. Overall 5+ stars!

    This was our first time going to Roy’s, and it was DEFINITELY worth it! The filet with pasta was honestly one of the best meals I have had in my life! My husband was jealous he didn’t get it. The cocktails were also super good and unique! We each tried 3 different ones! I highly recommend for a date night or special occasion. Yes, it is pricey, but it’s Hawaii and you get what you pay for! The service and food was top notch!

    Our dinner was one of the best we’ve had in a long time. We started with the zucchini appetizer, Cesar salad and their volcanic sparkling water all excellent. Our meals were Butterfish, ahi and the swordfish special with truffle sauce. I could eat this dinner everyday and would give the entire meal a rating of 150%. A must have while in Wikiki. A treat for dessert order the flowerless chocolate cake before you order as it takes 30 min to prepare. It will not disappoint. “Bon Appetite”

    Sometimes in life you are afforded the opportunity to truly experience something unique with all of your senses engaged: Sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch. The desgustatory experience we had this evening at “Roy’s,” a Hawaiian and Oahu institution that serves as a paen to fine dining, met our every sensory requirement. We first chose a bottle of German Riesling that was just sweet enough and just tart enough to enhance any seafood or fish entrees that we might happen upon and, by God, happen upon we did. Our Waiter was a veritable walking encyclopedia of fine fish dining and especially Roy’s that we could have come across. She was especial! After she poured the ice cold Riesling she recommended a Sashimi tuna kanpachi crudo. Of course, we ordered it and it came, it entered our collective mouths, and it conquered…our taste buds! With paper thin slices of jalapeño and icy cold Kahuku sea asparagus that exploded upon our taste buds, and sea greens that were crispy and tart: c’est la vie, baby! Because we are neophytes to Pacific fish and Hawaiian specialties of the house our Waiter brought us, on the sly and at no charge, Hawaiian Style Ahi Tuna Poke Ogo with Negi , Inamona, Shaved Ewa Onions sauced in a Chili Sesame Soy. Heaven as each morsel of the crudo-raw tuna melted in our mouths. We each ordered a sea creature entree. Margaret had the Hawaiian butterfish, Black Sea cod that swims and procreates at more than 5,000 feet below the surface of the sea but when soaked in a miso sauce till it turned black and then ever-so-lightly sauteed it was a shining sunshine of a sea edible that was definitely eaten with gusto. I had the Macadamia Nut crusted Tuna steak served on “Kona Cold" Lobster Sauce served over spaetzle. A veritable mound of decadent eating that I can’t forget. For dessert we shared a warm fresh pineapple cake with slivers of fresh pineapple and a mound of vanilla bean ice cream and hot cups of Kona coffee with fresh cream. We then shared a

    Unexpectedly sat a a table next to Roy who was dropping in for the evening. A little skeptical of eating at what seems like a chain in the states but found out Roy’s in Hawaii has nothing to do with the states. Food and service was great. Macadamia crusted swordfish tender and the sauce under it melted in your mouth. They brought us an extra side of it.

    Outstanding food and service. We got seated at a table right up front by the hostess stand so it wasn't ideal with parties coming in the entire time. Wait staff were excellent, attentive, and strove to really make it a special evening. I wish we had been seated in a different area but that's a minor nitpick. Highly recommend the Butterfish, it was incredible.

    It was crowded, noisey, and filled with tourists. I could hardly hear the people at my table; they were women and their voice frequency was drowned out by the din of dozens of overly. boistrous Bozos nearby. My ears were ringing when I left. It was tad more pricey than I remembered it to be. However, the service was excellent, the food was AWESOME, and it was a Friday night in Waikiki; that's what happens on a Friday night in Waikiki. Would I go back again? YOU BETCHA I WOULD !

    Great experience overall. The table was to our expectations as we asked to sit outside. Great people watching. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and was very attentive, meeting all of our needs. The appetizer was delicious, went with a sampler and it did not disappoint. Main course was also delicious and perfectly done. The dessert was the lava cake and it was also amazing. They did not miss a beat, even suggesting a drink for my wife that was totally delicious. Could not have had a better meal for our last night in Waikiki. When we come back this place will be on our must visit list.

    The sushi rolls were dry and lacking in both flavor and quantity of fish. They were all rice. The canoe appetizer ( which we've had many times previously) was disappointing. Again the rolls were dry, the shrimp overcooked and rubbery and the eggs rolls awful tasting. The ribs were good. The macadamia crusted swordfish was ok. The bright spot was the service. Our waiter was excellent and very responsive to our complaints.

    This restaurant is LOUD! There are absolutely no sound cancelling measures being taken. You need to yell at your table mates to be heard which just adds to the havoc. The food is good. But for the price you're paying, the food should be excellent. The value just is not there. We had better drinks at Duke's and better food at Island Vintage Wine Bar. We all agreed that Roy's wouldn't have to be visited again.
