There are few restaurants in existence that are better than Roy’s Waikiki. The food is some of the best you’ll ever taste and is only matched by the impeccable service. LOVE this place!

Years ago I had the best seafood on Maui. Yesterday I had the best seafood I’ve ever had. Roy’s is the place to go. We went early. 4:45pm I recommend this hour. Chef isn’t stressed and staff is fresh. Absolutely recommend this restaurant. If you want outstanding sea seafood and perfect service and you’re in Waikiki, go. Go early.

Roy’s is a wonderful place for an incredible meal. Highly recommended for celiac customers. The famous chocolate soufflé is gluten free!

Came here for a nice dinner to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. Service was excellent. Food was good but not the best. Ordered the prefix dinner for myself and the wife ordered the Butterfish and the Ahi 20 roll. My Braised Beef didn't have much taste and was a bit dry so I only ate a few bites and left it alone. Everything else was delicious. The Macadamia Nut local catch and the Butterfish were amazingly delicious. I would recommend getting their seafood entrees.

My daughter and I had dinner here on September 18, 2021. Outstanding food. Instead of bread and butter, every table gets a bowl of garlicky edamame which is lovely. We ordered crab cakes and the brussel sprouts as appetizers and they were tasty. My macadamia crusted swordfish was buttery and moist and so flavorful - one of the best fish dishes I’ve had in my life. My daughter’s mochi crusted fish was equally amazing. The pineapple upside down cake dessert was probably the weakest part of the meal - a solid showing but nothing to write home about. I ordered the vodka coconut cocktail which was awesome and very strong! My daughter said her lava flow was the best she had on the island. I’d say the only bummer part is that the restaurant is located on an inside street so no views of tue water but the food is so good that you don’t care. Best meal we had in the week we were here on the island!

Not as good as Roy's in the past, but probably due to COVID. Sashimi was so-so. Butterfish was decent. Seating options weren't good despite making a reservation six weeks before.

We were visiting Honolulu and wanted to go out for a special evening. This was a first time to Roy’s Waikiki having eaten at the Ko Olina, San Diego, and on the Big Island. Decor was minimal and atmosphere for a special evening felt lacking. Service was prompt and courteous. We ordered the canoe appetizer. Four appetizers were presented on a giant white plate, the canoe. They were tasty but quite small. The bbq ribs were cold and the other items were unmemorable. I had the Kauai shrimp and while tasty, the portion was sparse. My husband had the sampler plate. We ordered two glasses of house Chardonnay wine, that were weak and almost tasted watered down. We ordered another glass of wine. This location didn’t live up to the standards that we have always enjoyed at other Roy’s restaurants with the exception of the attentive service.

First time dining at Roy’s, everything was prepared perfectly and the service was prompt and friendly. They were recently reduced to 50% due to Covid but it has not effected the dining experience. Our sever Lea was excellent, she explained the menu in depth and made great dining suggestions.

First night of the honeymoon, this was the perfect dinner. We got sushi, an app sampler, swordfish, a bottle of wine and the restaurant hooked it up with a special dessert. Easily one of the best meals either of us has ever had, plus loved the attention to filling our waters and the excellent service in general. Everything was great, perfect way to start off our trip!!

Roy’s never disappoints! Pinot noir and sauvignon blanc by the glass were among the most reasonable priced wine in Waikiki. Our entrees of swordfish and butterfish with chocolate soufflé for dessert were outstanding. Dining on the covered lanai enabled us to view Saturday night on Lewers and protected us from the short downpour. Mahalo for a lovely evening.

Food is always excellent at Roy's! The only thing that was a little different this time was that they are keeping their red wines in the cooler. I am not a fan of that approach, it makes the wine taste extremely bitter.... Not sure if this applies only to the Waikiki location, but make sure you ask before you order (if you do not like your reds cold). Service was outstanding!

The butterfish is amazing although on the rich side. The service is great: welcoming, friendly, and attentive.
It’s nice to sit outside and watch the world go by. (Be sure to ask for bread as it isn’t brought automatically.)

30th Anniversary and Roy’s did not disappoint! From the moment we walked in, the staff was attentive and gracious!
Food was excellent and our waiter on point.
They even brought us a plate decorated with Happy 30th Anniversary. With a delicious chocolate cake covered in fresh cream and fruit! Love Roy’s!
