Absolutely delicious meal & excellent service, with one caveat.. we did not get a booth as requested, even though two were open right next to where we were seated... and couples were eventually seated in both. And yes, we had a reservation...
Excellent service from Prestyn & the Team on the patio. Thanks again kitchen team for a fantastic meal & for the Bday dessert. Booking another dinner @ Roy’s Waikiki soon. Thank you!
As always, Roy’s does not disappoint. I have dined at all of Roy’s locations and have left with a smile. My colleagues were equally happy with the food and service. You must visit Roy’s WAikiki Good stuff!
My husband said they had they best Salmon dinner in Hawaii, for me I love the ambiance food was good only downfall I thought the server was rushing when he was telling us about the menu. Overall I would recommend Roy’s to anyone.
Efficient and fast service. Best edamame I have ever tasted. Chocolate mousse desert was spectacular and I typically don’t eat chocolate desserts. Definitely will go again
Beyond amazing service, enjoyed our waiter and how really outgoing he was. Always checked up on us and made sure we were taken care of. We forgot his name but he was super friendly and had an amazing personality. Shout out to you to the local waiter with the beard! Anyway, we are definitely coming back here again! Food was perfection to our tastebuds! Thanks for such an amazing experience, especially during our first time here for our anniversary! 🤗
Service seemed less personal & more programmed than previous visit - with the prices of the wines by the glass I would have expected a proper wine glass. I was served a nice Pinot Noir in a banquet wine glass instead of a nice Burgundy glass - the following night at StripSteak they got it right! The whole dessert menu being presented when Entrees are served is not my favorite and I certainly do not want to be asked to order my dessert halfway through eating my entree. Overall an ok experience but won’t rush back.
Haven’t been to this Roy’s in a while better experience than I remembered. Service (forgot name of our server but he was friendly, helpful and informative) was excellent. Food better than I remembered (we had the salmon, ribs and of course lava chocolate dessert) presentation also excellent. We ate in the back room which was quieter than main dining room and the side annex. Looks like it can be closed off for private dining. Pricey can’t determine if the price point is justified or maybe because it’s “Roy’s” and Waikiki expect the premium price point. In general a nice dining experience and better than expected.
An unforgettable meal! The butterfish was one of the best things I’ve ever tasted!
Roy's Waikiki was once one of our favorite spots to eat in Waikiki. The place is so wildly popular now that much of its original charm and on-point execution has been diminished. The front of house staff is still top notch and extremely professional and very 'Roy's friendly'. The kitchen on the other hand is not quite as disciplined as it once was. Dishes fly out of there with mundane expertise and the staff looks somewhat bored and mechanical. We observed one cook crouching down right behind the line to chow down on what appeared to be his noodle dish dinner? You never saw that happen when Roy was in the kitchen back in the day at the Hawaii-Kai...
Thank you for a special night!! We celebrated our anniversary here and we were treated to a special night. I have several food allergies and Roy’s was very accommodating. The sashimi platter is well worth the price. 5 different cuts with 3 pieces of each!! We choose a local fish entree and it was modified for me, but still amazing. We ordered the chocolate soufflé which is gluten free and they gave us another anniversary dessert. This place is well worth the cost!!
Things you should know...OT will not allow you to post certain things in your review even if they may be very much of interest to consumers. I ate at Roy's and then slept on my bathroom floor all night. Take that for what it's worth. We'll see if they let this one fly.
That’s on top of the bad service, being sat as a couple next to two tables full of children, and being disappointed with our food. Now I’m laying in my room recovering instead of soaking up Hawaii. Don’t eat here ever! Roy’s owes me a day of my vacation back.
Wonderful food, outstanding staff and a very special treat for my husband and I during a much- deserved vacation.
This is the first time been to a Roy’s restaurant and we had a great dinner experience. The hostess was pleasant and seated us immediately on our arrival. Craig, server had noted that it was a special occasion and asked who is the special guest.
Craig and the other servers were very attentive to our meal and asked if we needed anything or how was the food.
All of us ordered the pre fixed meals and at the end we got a surprised dessert dish for my wife’s retirement. We appreciated their services and recommendations on food and drinks.
We planned on coming back to Roy’s on our next trip back to Honolulu.
Always great food and service
Fantastic...Start to finish...food, service...everything was great. Best meal In Waikiki. We’ll be back.
First time at Roy’s; glad we dined here. Service was fantastic; Ken, our waiter took great care of us. Food was served promptly and was delicious. Dinner and a drink each for two people was $115, not bad for Honolulu.
We really loved the preset menus allowing us to taste a variety of food and paired with wine! The fish was amazing ! Great service.
My family has very tough times finding places to accommodate our strict dietary restrictions. Not only did everyone jump into action and make it easy for us, Roy's Waikiki has become my mom's favorite restaurant, on Earth! The misoyaki butterfish is her go-to, but I love to explore the new items on the menu. On this occasion I had the Rainbow Poke Tower (incredible) the okinawan sweet potato bisque, and the duck confit. My wife preordered the lava souffle, and we had a meal that will be remembered as one of the best times we have ever had together. I cannot thank the staff enough. Malama Pono
Great food, followed waitres suggestions and they were perfect. Only issue I have is the speed of service. When you go to a nice restaurant, semi expensive, I don’t expect to be served and out within an hour. The speed things happened didn’t give us a chance to slow it down. We ordered the sashimi and when they cleared we asked for a break but was told it’s likely to be already in. In fact a couple of minutes after clearing the plates the mains arrived. The wine selection was good, impressed that they update it daily if low on a specific bottle, but The way it was served left a little to be desired. No tasting first, although usually say ok when they offer, and then filling the wine glass to nearly the top which is really only to save the waitress coming back and topping it up. You like to keep the white wine cool While consuming. Not what you expect from a very good restaurant. So food is fantastic and would go back again but clearly say not in a hurry.
The food was just ok. Appetizers were cold and very salty. Entrees were somewhat bland. On the positive side, the Hawaiian martini was pretty good. I will not be back.
Git violently sick after eating here I notified the restaurant via their website and haven’t heard back and it has been 3 days. I will not be going back there.
Service was outstanding and food was delicious!
We've always dined at Roy's and our anniversary dinner by far has been THE BEST experience thanks to our server Beau. He was attentive and always replied with "I appreciate you" instead of "thank you" which made us feel so welcomed as a customer. We'll definitely come back again and request for Beau as our waiter. We also normally always order the same food but this time decided to try something different and it was the best decision ever. Thank you.
So far so good
They accommodated us and allowed me change the time for my reservation. Food was good
Roy’s in Waikiki never disappoints, the short ribs are out of this world, consistent good service and awesome food!!
This meal was a 10! Had their special 3 course dinner served only from 5 to 6pm for $46. Swapped the poke appetizer for crab cake at no extra charge, delicious, steak and prawns perfectly prepared and finished with the chocolate souffle which was well worth the calories. Had Ruths Chris' the night before which was ok at best. Roy's will be on our list to go again, in fact I am looking to book another dinner there before we go back home. Dinner with 2 glasses of wine and 21% tip = $145. Bargain for what you get and we were stuffed.
Our experience at Roy’s was phenomenal. The sashimi plate, the Ahi tuna and the macadamian crusted Mahimahi were flawlessly cooked to perfection. And then to top it up, the best chocolate soufflé we have ever tasted. This the place to go when in Honolulu.
Awesome dinner. Loved it!
We have been to several rows in other locations. This one did not meet up to standards at all. It took an hour to get the food. 4 of us got the same dish and there was significant variation in how it came out. Seafood was over cooked and didn’t come out hot. The waitress forgot our salad. We were really looking forward to the meal and were very disappointed
Very tasty meal. I would highly recommend getting the butterfish, it was amazing!!
I went to Roy’s with my spouse for my birthday. I had such an amazing time! They gave me a birthday hat, and I had to tofu licious rolls and also a tofu dinner. The waiter was one of the nicest waiters we’ve honestly ever had. I had one of the best dinners ever, thank you so much Roy’s!
Great food and service! Very interesting combination of local and Japanese cuisine! One of the best restaurants in Hawaii! Yes
Such amazing good and service. Our server was so genuine and took the time to make sure our experience was as amazing as our food !
Always delicious. Butterfish a must try. Pre fixe a favorite also.
Expensive but delicious. The table had the Stuffed Pork Chop and the Mahi Mahi off the $53 Prix Fixe, both were amazing.
Service was good, drinks and food were amazing. Our server was very respectful and considerate with our dining experience and anticipated our need
Food and services are outstanding! We are always returning customers.
