Tried Roy's in Las Vegas when it first opened. Haven't been back since because we don't have any in the PNW. It was refreshing to try it again in Hawaii. If we return next year or the following we will be sure to have at least one dinner with you folks.

We had an amazing experience visiting Oahu and celebrating a birthday here! The staff were all extremely nice and helpful, and the food was delicious - we had one vegan in our party and there were more than enough options for everyone to have an outstanding meal.

Drinks at the bar were ok, not exceptional. Our wine service was weak.. placed a bottle way to close to my elbow.. lucky it did not get bumped, I asked for better wine glasses and none available. We poured all of our own wine, until last pour. Opened red and began pouring before white. Food was very good. The restaurant very loud!

3コースディナーのサンセットメニューを頂きました。
雰囲気やサービスはとても良かったと思いますが、お料理のお味が全体的に濃かったのが残念でした。
濃いのでパンが欲しかったのですが、サンセットメニューには付いていないらしく出て来ませんでした。
それからデザートは量が多すぎて残してしまいました。
チョコレートスフレの甘さも結構くどかったかな?
あの半分でも十分だと思います。
もうリピはないかな。

Did the chef tasting and we finished our sparkling wine way before our first course came out, when the fish finally came out mine was mushy so I sent it back, our waiter was unapologetic and had the personality of my dry hair( pretty bad) once it came every other dish was fine. My only complaint about the tasting was that it was nothing special, usually it’s a opportunity for the chef to be creative! MEH

Excellent restaurant. The food and service great. I wouldn’t calling causal formal. This restaurant could be that but the vibe we got was more casual. The waitress and managers were treated their guess with great hospitality. I commend the manager or maitrede for working with her staff on serving food and drinks. She really care for customers as well as her staff. You can see the respect the employees give to her. The food was excellent. Everything we ordered was great including the escargot. Yup snails! No shells though. Hahaha. Well I hope this review can help others decide where they want to enjoy their dinner or meal.

Our waiter was the absolute best and the food was perfect. Our only issue was our table was back in an area with very little ambience but definitely quiet enough for us to enjoy conversation. We started off with the hamachi appetizer which was fabulous and then had a wonderful salad and fresh fish. We ended with the chocolate soufflé which can’t be beat.

We can’t wait to go back on our next trip👍🏻🤙🤙

We ate at Roy's Waikiki based on a recommendation from locals we met on Kauai. The food and service were top notch. Our goal was fresh seafood for my wife, (I'm a vegetarian). The menu was not so clear to us, and her entree order included 'pan seared' Ahi, which is not cooked thoroughly. This didn't fly with her and they had no problem taking it off the bill. The crab cake appetizer and the salad she ordered was more than enough for her. They had a vegan option (1) that was amazing, and they were very responsive to my peanut allergy. Just pay attention to the menus, and ask questions! Overall an excellent meal and experience.

We always eat at Roy’s Waikiki when we visit Oahu. My husbands prix fixed three course dinner was superb: butterfish, filet and prawns, chocolate soufflé. My lobster and prawn dish was good and rich. My sons macadamia crusted mahi-mahi was over cooked but tasty. I ordered a dessert soufflé also and expected something different than my husbands. We like to share, but it was the same dessert. Our server offered to get something else but it was all good. What was a real downer was the gift card I ordered using credit card d points, specifically to use on our trip. It turns out Roy’s in Hawaii is separate from all the Roy’s mainland. Now we have to go to one of those Roy’s locations listed on the card. The server knocked off $30 for this confusion.

Great venue. We had drinks on the patio bar and liked it so much we reserved dinner for later in our trip. We did the Roy's tasting menu, which was a 3 course with 3 oz. wine pairings. Very good value. Appetizer was a small combo with skewered shrimp, rib and egg roll. My husband had the Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi--outstanding. I had the ribs. Very good, huge serving. Desserts were lava cake and Macadamia nut tart. Both were good, but the lava cake was the fave. The regular menu had lots of other good options. Very enjoyable evening.

Roy's Waikiki is that place you take your in-laws to for a special occasion. You can count on it to be a nice experience and good, safe food. It is not a good value and don't expect to be wowed by any of the food- but should expect to not be dissapointed. The food is not innovative in the slightest, and the menu does not take risks, but relies on a stable of Roy's standards and ensures there is something for everyone. Ingredients are high grade though and the execution is solid and service is as good as you would expect for a restaurant in this price range.

I went with my two sons. They have a kids menu and know they are large portions. I should have ordered the kids shirt ribs as the adult portion was way too big and a bit dry. They also barely put any mashed on it.
