Visited Roy’s to celebrate a pre-Valentine’s Day dinner. The food was well cooked and tasteful. Prestyn waited on us and his recommendations were spot on! So glad I choose this spot to take my special Valentine 😁

We’ve been to Roy’s in Maui and now Waikiki. Both are great places for fine dining and a fantastic island vibe.

We went to Roy’s for dinner the first night of our honeymoon and it was a 10 out of 10! Great service, great food, great atmosphere. I would eat here all the time if I lived here!!!

Always look for the gravy! If you have an allergy or dietary restrictions, the people at Roys will make sure you have no worries, and it will be the best meal of your life.

Great location and a great variety of options but prices are expensive and portions are small. Waits may be long - definitely requires a reservation but it’s in the center of all the high end shops so killing some time waiting for your table isn’t too difficult- window shopping abounds

Love the look and feel of the recently renovated space. General Manager Diva greeted us at our table which was very nice. Her staff - well trained by her and we received excellent service.

My guests were visiting from South Carolina. We selected from the tasting menu with wine pairing. It’s the first time I did so - and I was very happy with my selection of entree. We ordered the macadamia nut crusted mahi with lobster sauce. It was divine! My guests couldn’t stop raving about it.

I am a creature of habit. Once I like something - its my “go to” for that restaurant. At Roy’s - it’s been the butterfish...now I’m gonna have to alternate between the two!

It is definitely loud like some others have pointed out but that didn't detract too much from our experience. The food was amazing and overall our evening was enjoyable. We had noted it was our anniversary but no one mentioned it until the end when they brought out a complimentary dessert. We wish we would have known it was coming as we probably wouldn't have ordered another one. That said, they were both delicious!

food was wonderful. had to wait 30 minutes past reservation time which was kind of a bummer. it was also pouring rain outside and very cold inside the restaurant. not fun when soaking wet coming in. the staff was very nice and accommodating, gave us free crab cakes to say sorry for waiting. they also ran out of opakapaka fish (the main reason I chose roy's to eat actually) while we were waiting that extra 30 minutes. they did substitute mahi mahi which tasted wonderful. all in all I would say do not miss this restaurant while in waikiki. worth wait and money.

Food was wonderful as well as service, but the noise level is terrible. Can’t hear the other person in your party who is sitting across from you. Noise level is the only issue.

Absolutely, without a doubt, bar none; this was the most amazing dining experience we, my daughter and I, have ever had the honor to enjoy!

Thank you so much, to the manager and his crew, for a delightful culinary extravaganza!

We will be boasting, and recommending, to all our family and friends.

Sincere praise and accolades to Roy’s. Love the Pinot!

Roy's is our go to place for special occasions and whenever we are craving great food! As usual, the food and service was wonderful. I am vegetarian and gluten-free and they have always managed to create a dish that tastes great. We had a party of four adults and a 17 month old. They provided a small appetizer plate for our little guest right away. She was able to enjoy her treat while we perused the menu.
All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing experience.

The food was all that we had hoped it would be, outstanding. We each had something different, and each plate was a work of art as well as combining flavors that were unique and delicious. We were seated initially inside the restaurant where the noise level was unbearable. We weren't able to hear each other across the table. We asked to be changed, and they were able to accommodate us outside, much better.

Every entree and appetizer was excellent. The waitress said the crusted mahi mahi was the most popular entree, and indeed it was the tastiest piece of seafood that had crossed my palate in years. For the quality, the 3 and 4 course menus are very good values at $55 to $75. Roy's particularly stands out because it is surrounded by so many mediocre, overpriced hotel restaurants - e.g. you can drop as much money for lousy food at the Hilton Village restaurants. BTW Roy's so-called "Hawaiian Martini" has nothing in common with a martini in that it is made with vodka rather than gin, but it is absolutely delish.

Nightmare experience. So many past wonderful dinners but this time. Service slow. Wine pairing happened haphazardly. Beef arrived cold. Had to ask for bred two times since waitperson forgot. Table never cleaned between courses. So incredibly disappointed. Waited 28 min for desert to arrive yet it was ordered at meal order time. Sadly hesitant to ever return and still passed a tip !

As always, Roy’s was wonderful! We always come where when vacationing in Hawaii! We lived here a few years ago (and came WAY more often) and we always say hi to the General Manager who is always there! Unfortunately we missed her this time, but we will see you again!!
