期待して伺ったのですが とてもがっかりな内容でした。
お肉の焼き加減が希望と全然違い、希望通りできないのなら 初めから焼き加減を聞かないで欲しかったぐらいです。
デザートのガトーショコラが、尋常じゃないぐらい甘すぎてとても食べれませんでした。

We go to Roy's a few times a year. The food is just so tasty! The Mac nut crusted mahimahi with the lobster sauce and the chocolate lava cake are amazing.

The service is usually pretty good but this last time it was exceptional. We were checked on by the server, busser and two other individuals. We were offered more lobster sauce for our fish which was made it even better.

Brought out of town visitors for a taste of HRC and Roy's was on point! Everyone selected some type of Prix Fixe and all were very happy...even if they threw in the towels without finishing dessert!

We tried the set menu of 3 dishes. Everything was flavoured so well! My Mahi Mahi and my husband's filet mignon were both a little overcooked, but we were still able to enjoy it nonetheless. We had the chocolate souffle for dessert and it was amazing. It had such rich chocolate flavour!

We had family visiting from mainland & chose Roy’s Waikiki to have nice dinner on their last night. The evening started well, service level was good then it tapered off. We asked the bus boy a few basic questions when our waiter was elsewhere, the bus boys response each time was “ask your server”... wish he could have taken more initiative to be engaging.
Food was ok. My daughter had vegan pre fixed menu - was not tasty, almost bland. The scoop of ice cream that came with her dessert was size of golf ball - really?!?!

The other entree items were ok - there were 6 of us. I ordered steamed fish & it was passable.
One thing that was very distrusting was the mud pie dessert. The menu did not make any mention of it being peanut butter layer. Most mud pies I’ve had usually have vanilla, chocolate and or coffee ice cream. If anyone with peanut allergy ordered this mud pie, there would have been some serious consequences. Need to fully describe the ingredients of this item.

Overall, the meal and dining experience was so so...I’ve had better experience at this restaurant.

Husband's 70th birthday; ordered the Mahimahi Mac nut; server recommended Mahi to be cooked medium; which was delicious. I ordered the trio taster: Mahi, Salmon, and Butterfish. I think next time I'll order the Mahi full serving. The molten lava cake was delivered nice and warm (need to order half hour ahead) was so ono. I ordered the Oreo Kona coffee cake which was also a treat since I don't like to include sugar in my diet.

Expected a more intimate dining area for the money. As expensive as much, much nicer 5 star restaurants but with a very LOUD dining area. Also, the open kitchen had intense flood lights that killed any ambience. The food was decent, but not worth the money.

The food was prepared with the flare and flavors of local cuisine. The kampachi crudo was delicious and so fresh as if it had just been caught as it was served. The rolls and mekajiki were hard to put into words. The combination of fresh, fruity, savory and an the multitude of flavors that were on display throughout these dishes were simply a diners delight. This was my last meal before going back home and it was a fantastic send off with spectacular service.
