Excellent wait staff.
AMAZING food! Friendly staff who had great recommendations
Excellent service, excellent food. We’ll be heading back soon.
The experience was excellent. Our main compliment is for our server who was ultra friendly and attentive. We were just bummed we came here for a fine dining experience and our neighboring patrons dined with beach clothing and bare, dirty feet the whole time. From what we saw, multiple servers were looking but didn’t ask them to put on their shoes. Kinda gross for the ambience.
Customer service was great! So attentive, would come again!
The service was excellent and the menu options made it difficult to decide what to get. I was so happy they offered a trio of three fish entrees, which is what ordered. The fish was fresh and prepared well. I highly recommend Roy’s.
Delicious as always and wonderful service. This is my favorite restaurant.
Great service. Appetizers, salads, entrees all excellent. The butterfish was absolutely delicious!
Dads 90th birthday and everyone from hostess to server were amazing. Really made his birthday special and accommodated all of our needs. Were patient and friendly while we took a long time to order. Highly recommend!
Fantastic service and food
Great food and serving.
Pre fix was amazing
had prix fixe menu which was excellent preparation and presentation
Great first time experience here. My Uber driver and many friends recommended this place for my birthday and I am very glad I decided to have my birthday dinner here. The service was outstanding, everything seemed to run really smoothly and the staff had excellent timing on serving appetizers entrees drinks and desserts when we were ready. Our server explained the menu options in detail for us as we did not know what to order. The food was the best I’ve had in Waikiki and they even gave me a complimentary dessert that said happy birthday on the plate written in chocolate. The restaurant itself has a nice layout and looked very nice. It is on the pricier side but well worth it. I was worried I might be underdressed but since it is a resort area many people were in casual attire as well. Overall great experience service food and ambiance were on point. Would definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t been here yet.
Went to celebrate my girlfriends 21st birthday. Very accommodating place and has vegan menu option. The service was what took this place above average. Food was good, not great, but definitely worth a try. Drinks are extremely strong, tread lightly. Overall, a place to check off your list just once.
Had the prix fixe menu. Not a seafood fan so they gave me 2 short ribs instead without blinking an eye. Hubby prefers the fish so they accommodated him as well. Mai Tai was pricey but delicious. Appetizers were sublime. Dessert was a lime cheesecake which was the perfect blend of sweet and sour. Can't wait to come back.
Roy’s is always wonderful. Great service and delicious food. This is a place you must visit.
Disappointed with every aspect of our experience here. Let's start with the food. Had the poke to start, which was unremarkable except for the extremely large chunks of fish that made it impossible to eat with chopsticks. Then had sweet potato soup: this was patently disgusting. Texturally, it was like an inert blob of gloopy babyfood, which was bad enough. But even more disappointing was the lack of layers of flavor, by which I mean zero flavor initially and then heat at the end. Sorry, but a pinch of capsaicin doesn't make up for a completely uninteresting and texturally repugnant bisque. But hey, it was purple, so I guess I'm just crazy to expect food to taste good and be a bit interesting. I then had the appetizer portion of the butterfish while my husband had 7 thin pieces of blackened tuna for $52. We eat at a lot of exquisite restaurants: that fish was not worth $52. The butterfish was the only highlight of the meal: perfectly cooked, flaky, and seared in a lovely sweet and savory sauce. Servers were oddly all male and spent a lot of time chatting in a corner rather than taking care of customers who were obviously looking for them. Ambience felt like a college cafeteria that added low lighting to try to create a sense of intimacy and exclusivity. There are lots and lots of other choices in Waikiki: pick one of those instead.
Wow a very nice place to eat and very friendly workers
Sleepy music and the food was just okay. Decor and ambiance very dated.
Week after week, Roy’s rolls our spectacular food and service @ a reasonable price for nearly 40 years now! Partner Diva and Bar Manager Asher rock us every time we come! Sensational experience every week! Mahalo Nui Loa!! 🍣🍱🐟🐠🎏
Roy’s continuously has great food, with excellent quality. Stays consistent with every visit. Butter fish is by far the best dish on the menu.
Disappointing to say the least. I love going to Roy Yamaguchi’s eateries whenever I’m visiting the islands. But this Waikiki location leaves a lot to be desired. The server was sub-par at best. Our food runner was the only individual with a sense of purpose and had an engaging personality. He should be promoted. I’ll never be back at this location.
Good Service but too expensive and not enough food for the price. First time but not anymore
Excellent food and service
Food was amazing. I had the stuffed chicken and my husband had the braised beef. We were so pleased with dinner we didn’t think dessert could have impressed us like it did. The pineapple upside down cake is life. Service was wonderful. Highly recommend.
Outstanding!!! We are here In Honolulu on vacation and your restaurant is top notch! We thank Riley and Mike for making our experience special!!
We were able to change reservation time easily. Service was outstanding and food presentation and taste were top notch.
Diva the manager was amazing! She was friendly and very accommodating.
The food was awesome! The Misoyaki butterfish is a must have. The service and ambience was stellar. I would go back.
Gave it a 4 in ambience, only because it was kind of noisy. If there were a 4.7 I would have given them that. The food was GREAT! Our server and her team were Fabulous. Even with the little quirks about eating out in Hawaii right now, this was a great experience.
Disappointing food with ok service. I used to love this restaurant.
Food was decent, but the ribs were described as baby back, when they were spare ribs. They were poorly trimmed and very tough. Sushi was delicious, menu was more extensive than what was listed online.
After making special reservations for my 17th year old’s birthday, the manager initially didn’t want to let us in because my 15 year old son didn’t have an ID (he’s too young to get one in CA) to accompany our vaccine cards and it made an awkward initial experience. We subsequently didn’t get seats in the dining room but instead got seated our on the patio with a garbage bin and backyard view being part of our view. Not the experience I was hoping for.
I’m a big fan of Roy’s Maui but this experience disappointed. Our server was wonderful, attentive and kind, but unfortunately his service didn’t make up for the lack of attention the kitchen put into the food. For the money you pay, the value is not there which is a shame because the promise is great.
Very nice food.
The food was excellent. We would return again based on the food and the food alone. The service, however, was lacking at best. The two people who helped our server were excellent. Our food was delivered and plates cleared timely. Our actual server was not at the level that she should have been. She did not provide the level of service one should expect for the caliber of restaurant Roy’s is. She did not explain anything, offer any guidance, or honestly even show up much. There was a table in our section were she had friends/family seated. They definitely got all of her attention. We were forgotten. It was disappointing at best. I don’t expect, or care for, a server who hovers and doesn’t allow us to eat in peace. However, it would’ve been nice to see her more than 4 times our entire meal. My husbands drink actually went empty for several minutes at one point.
Since being here we’ve had food that was so so but the service was impeccable. That is the type of place we will return to.
Based solely off of the food I would recommend Roy’s to a friend. Based off of the full experience I would recommend a friend proceed with caution.
Our weekly Date Night meals @ Roy’s is always a delight! With Diva’s kindness and expertise this restaurant simply rocks every dish, every time! Our amazing bar tender/waiter gives the greatest service only one can dream of! We 💜❤️🔥💓you all and can’t wait to 👀U all on Saturday!
Delicious food! Amazing service, definitely recommend
Food and service was good but the atmosphere was uninspired and dated with no charm.
Try the fixed menu. Great value and good selection. Service was excellence.
