Roy's Woodland Hills Ratings and Reviews
It's best to make a reservation in advance if you are dining on Friday or Saturday evening. These times are prime time at Roy's. They have some great appetizers as well as a menu that just about anyone could find something that they would like. Roy's isn't cheap, but it's worth it.
My experience was ......pathetiiiiiiic! The dining room was 90% empty and they were almost out of everything! The only thing worth ordering is the butterfish. However, they were completely out. Our waiter assured us that they had anything else on the menu our heart desired. We both ordered the mahi mahi. Guess what? They only had one left and were out of this dish as well! The mahi mahi was bland and dry. I will say that the one good dish was the poke bowl appetizer. When we expressed our disappointment to Dean the manager, he pretty much shrugged his shoulders and said sorry....to bad! Not enough customer service in my book! I was surprised this guy was actually a manager. He seemed eager to end his night and was not invested in providing his costumes a quality experience. Our waiter seemed nice but could not be responsible for the lack of decorum of the manager or the kitchen being poorly stocked on most items. This location should be an embarrassment to the Roy's name.
The menu was limited to just the New Years Eve menu. My steak was over cooked. My wife’s risotto was crunchy as if it were undercooked. My desert was cold. My water glass was frequently empty.
For the price we paid the meal was very underwhelming and disappointing.
My wife and I made a reservation for New Years Eve. We arrived 5 minutes early to find a crowd waiting inside and out. The host told us all the people waiting had reservations and they were running 45 minutes late. We understand that restaurants sometimes overbook, but a 45 minute wait on New Year's Eve with a reservation is inexcusable. Since it was still early, the restaurant next door (Fleming's) was able to seat us and we had a spectacular dinner. Given the grumbling I overheard, I suspect Roy's fell out of favor with multiple people that night; including me and my wife.
The food and the service were seriously lacking this time. My scallops were loaded with sand and undercooked. My husband said his fish was bland and boring. The edamame were dry and tasteless. We usually have great meals at Roy’s, but last night was pretty bad. The service wasn’t great either. It’s gonna be a while before we go back.
Lovely restaurant; the lobster potstickers and butterfish were “the bomb”!
The waitstaff were very cheerful and helpful. Service was downgraded to 4 stars only because the woman working at the front was a bit rude. It sort of placed a pall over my mood. I suppose that she was not happy about having to work on Christmas but, as the initial face-to-face contact representative of the restaurant, it made me wonder how we would be treated by the rest of the staff. Thankfully, we did not have to deal with her very much.
Went there for Xmas dinner for 4. Overall was good. 3 of us had the Xmas special dinner (chateaubriand main course - was exxellent). They offered 2 appetizers - Caesar salad and lobster bisque. 645 pm meal and they said they ran out of Parmesan. How does that happen when you have 2 main apps as your offering? That’s unacceptable. I had the Caesar - boring. Dressing has no flavor. I asked for more and they brought the garden salad dressing in error. One guest has the lobster bisque and He loved it. Ordered a bottle of red with 3 glasses and they came with 3 separate glasses with no bottle. Big waste for them to return. Lots of service errors. Forgot pepper too (no salt or pepper on table - weird).
3 of us who had chafeaubriand loved it. 4th had Alaskan black cod and she didn’t like it. She returned and got our entree which she loved. Dessert was bread pudding or chocolate torte. Bread pudding was cold. Shouldn’t it have been warm? Desserts were pretty good over all.
We could all eat the main course again. Overall good but multiple service mistakes. Expected better service when spending $400 on dinner.
Food was delicious but being Christmas eve , it had a circus atmosphere. People were waiting and lots of moving back and forth. The tables were packed in and had a mess hall setting. Besides that, the food was delicious as always. Their food is consistent. I have never had a bad meal at Roy's so that makes it all worthwhile.
It’s supposed be a high end restaurant, but ended it up with the worst experience ever we have ever experienced. First of all, the food portion was very minimum. The price is high, the service is poor. They can’t tell the table next to us to quiet down, at least to respect other people. They didn’t do that. Because the table next is a big group with bigger money involved and bigger tips. The server rushed to give us the bill without asking us to see if we would like to have desert. That could be even worse. I don’t recommend this restaurant.
Roy's is always great - good food, good service. There were several parties going on while we were there so we had to wait to be seated, it was very loud and our waiter was a bit frazzled. He was wonderful though - worked very hard to make sure we felt special.
What has impressed us is the quality of the service. The staff is completely involved in giving attention to your needs, with as many as six people stopping by. In addition the primary server is always intelligent and creative in their conversation with us. I also notice that our own conversation is not constantly being interrupted by servers who seem to want to make sure that you notice what they are doing for you, again and again. It's just first class service.
overall was good. it is pricey for what you get. the ambience is the main reason to go there. good place for dates and special occasions.menu is not extensive. service was fine. slow somewhat in terms of coming around and asking if we need anything and basic things like bread and butter were not available. overall was fine but not on par with the price.
Although I do like Roy's, I must say that in spite of our server being very nice, the service was extremely slow. My friend ordered the pork belly and it was definitely not to her liking. It seems that none of the Ruth's Chris (neither Woodland Hills, nor Pasadena) serve bread with the breakfast. I did ask and the server said he would get some, but it arrived at the end of the meal.
By the way, although they had an event for children to make ginger bread houses, the place was pretty empty. I would, however, go back and give them another try.
