Food, drinks, and atmosphere were all on point at Roy’s tonight. Waiters could have been a bit less brisk in their service, but we lacked for nothing. My Chi Chi was the best I’ve had while here. Started with the canoe appetizer plate—fantastic. Entrees of Butterfish and fish trio were superb, followed by equally superb desserts. It may not be the newest nor hippest game in town, but it was just what we were looking for. Will certainly come again when back on Oahu.

Christy was super friendly during our dinning experience. The food was amazing and I would personally recommend the pre fixed the menu and chocolate soufflé.

The service was wonderful , the waiters so attentive and helpful. It was out first time and we had many questions. The wait staff was so patient. I had the shellfish sampler and enjoyed the lobster and pesto shrimp, the portions were perfect. We started off with the fried zucchini , the flying dragon and the short ribs. The zucchini had a nice crunch and not greasy at all. The sushi rolls were wonderful. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was the selection for the kids menu was very limited , I know the restaurant isn’t exactly for kids so I can understand that too. Also all the construction in the area , our view was of construction but again not the restaurant’s fault. But overall the food and service was 5 stars .

Very disappointing! Drinks were watered down. Food was very average if not bad. Salmon was fishy and inedible. The misoyaki butterfish which is usually my favorite was just ok. Poke lacked flavor. The kitchen was very slow so we waited close to an hour to get entrees. Pretty restaurant but not up to what Roy’s should have been. I would either do an overall of this restaurant or just close it. There’s enough poor to average food in Waikiki. Don’t degrade the franchise for this location. We will not be back.

We have been big fans of Roy’s since we were suggested to go there by a concierge in Naples, Florida. Our family visits Naples often and we would eat there at least 2-3 times per year. We were so sad to see it closed a couple years back!! Roy’s Waikiki was just as amazing. Despite there being construction in the immediate area, the ambiance in the outdoor seating area is still elegant and tropical, and the food is simple and delicious, using local ingredients. We had a little mixup with the size of our party but they quickly and gracefully resolved. Definitely recommend a visit to Roy’s if you’re in Waikiki! Mahalo !

While in Waikiki for our anniversary/birthday trip, we thought we would try this restaurant since it was walking distance from hotel. Customer service was excellent and delivered in a timely manner. Everything that was suggested was excellent! If we ever get back to Waikiki we will be back! :-)

Best service we’ve had in Hawaii so far. A bit on the pricey side. I’d still highly recommend for a nice night out. Leave the kids back in the room.

Others may enjoy the spicy food and heavily raw fish menu but it was very disappointing for me. sorry. We were really looking forward to the evening.

My rib steak had a great deal of gristle that
was inedible.

Not gluten-free friendly at all. They were also really low staffed so our waiter was so rushed she was barely any help, and got visibly frustrated everytime we needed help with the menu.

Food and service was excellent. Resturant cleaning needs attention. Seated in booths, noticed hanging lights were gross with thick dust on fixture and hanging cable. Spyder webs and partition glass has big smears. Details for a upscale place are important.

I’ve been a fan of Roy’s for 15+ years. I was more than a fan, it may have been a full on obsession. I’m so sad to say things have completely gone down hill. The butter fish was definitely not fresh and smelled bad. The Mac nut fish tasted like they dropped it in the fryer. It was awful. I’m cancelling our reservations for 1849 and I’m sadly crossing Roy’s off of our list permanently.

Our waiters were accommodating but the front reception girl was kinda cold. It wouldn’t hurt to smile especially since it’s the first person making the first impression for Roys.
