Roy's Woodland Hills Ratings and Reviews
The seafood combo was food but the portion was skimpy. Only one scallop! The 4 fish combo was also good but the salmon was overcooled and dry. I mentioned it to the server who immediately replaced the salmon. The restaurant is upscale and quite pricey for an everyday dining spot. We will try it again when we have a special occasion to celebrate.
Salad was awful. Avoid the fish. Got nauseated after eating it. Chairs have springs coming out of them. The waitress was super nice. The manager was great and apologetic about the fish. Comped our meal. I would only have chicken or beef if i go there again.
Service was exceptional but then we were the only ones in the entire restaurant for brunch. Another small group came in 1 hour later. Food great, drinks incredible. Not sure why this place is not more popular. Was a bit expensive- we dropped $100 on brunch.
Drinks too awhile even though they were slow.
Wagu burger was just ok
Waiter gave me wrong bill
Said he’d reverse charges plus credit valet charge but when I went to valet it wasn’t charged. Had to pay cash there. Not that big of deal more annoyed at that point.
We love Roys. Service is excellent! Food is very good and they will adjust it however you want it. Best part is I can have sushi and my husband can enjoy meat. We also take advantage of the discount offers they send out periodically...makes the pricing very reasonable!
We hadn't been to Roy's in a while, as a couple of years ago we had some disappointing experiences. I am glad to say that they've gone back to their usual excellence! Everything was totally delicious. The Poke and crispy Chicken rolls were standout appetizers, the sushi roll (Sunrise something) was fabulous, and the fish and desserts outstanding. Great, attentive service and a good deal to boot. We'll be back soon!
Definitely not one of our better meals there. Food was cold and had to send back, but upon return was equally as cold and not worth the price. Ordered specialty wine for my wife and had to send back as well because quality was very poor (on the verge of going bad). Manager came by several times but never made any eye contact with us nor did he ask how are meal was. We've been to Roy's many times in the past however the last few times have not been very good. Our server, Brittany was pleasant and tried her best to make things right. Don't think we will be back for awhile......
The food is very good, nicely presented. The menu feeling is very "chain" and pre-set rather than original or creative. But the service was friendly & attentive and the setting is not too crowded, although it can get very noisy when the restaurant is full.
Wife was out of town so my daughter and I went to Roy's to try it out. Nice decor, very friendly waitress.
Food was Ok, but not amazing. We had the filet and the ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection, but the ribeye was filled with a tough membrane that the very sharp steak knife could not get through. My daughter had to spit out a couple of bites of the filet, but I don't know why.We ordered the 'crusted calamari' and received a plate full of julienne cut calamari breaded with what I described as ground Tater Tots. It was Ok, but wasn't out of this world. And, yes, we ate it all. The mashed potatoes and gravy were excellent, though. And the chocolate souffle for desert was also excellent.
I'm told they are known for the seafood, so maybe we just ordered the wrong items?
I've told several people that I would probably eat at Roy's again, but would not go out of my way to recommend it to others. I probably expected more, so was disappointed.
In short, it was too much money for the overall quality of the food. We did not leave unhappy, just a little disappointed.
Roy's Hawaiian is a reliable neighborhood staple. A bit on the pricey side, so we usually only go for special occasions. Some of our favorite menu options (The Shellfish Trio/Sampler) have had a bit of a makeover, but we were happy with their new versions, as well. My go-to is Roy's Trio, a flavorful sampling of three great fish dishes - the signature Misoyaki Butterfish (always a winner!), the Hibachi Grilled Salmon, paired with a vinegar-dressed cucumber salad, and the Blackened Ahi Tuna, served seared rare, with Furikake Rice to go with all of the fish. The surprise for me was the Ahi, as I ended up finishing all of it and taking home some of the Salmon and Butterfish for later! Of course, no trip to Roy's would be complete without their classic Hawaiian Martini! Pineapple-infused Skyy Vodka, Stoli Vanilla, and Malibu Rum, served up chilled with a wedge of fresh pineapple on the side. I don't know how they make it taste so good (and I've tried to replicate it at home), but it is one of the most well-crafted cocktails I've ever had! So nice to have Roy's in the neighborhood, for a convenient taste of Hawaii whenever the mood strikes!
It has the feel of high-end place, elegant and selective, although busy and not quiet (not noisy either).. Quality of of food is high and both staff management are intent on assuring that people are happy with everything. Still, the prices are very high. Roy's frequently has some discounts, at least for repeat visitors, but--even so--prices are higher than they should be (e.g., $40-$42 for a fish dinner)
My wife and I were stunned when--after placing our orders--we were told the restaurant had NO scallops. She want the entree, I wanted the shellfish sampler. The waiter told me I would have a discount on the price, but came back to tell me no discount, but I would get extra shrimp instead. My wife ordered salmon. The salmon portion was the smallest I had ever seen, nearly lost in the bottom of a large bowl. My shrimp were not the large butterfly type, but a long skinny variety that had not been de-veined. Our coconut custard dessert with fresh berries (one raspberry and one blackberry) was excellent. We have been going to this Roy's for our wedding anniversary for about 10 years and it apparently is well-documented in your computer system.
But this time, we didn't say anything while making the reservation on-line, and no one at the restaurant caught it. For a photo, we quietly took a selfie. The restaurant was not crowded, but we were seated next to a family with two crying children. Acoustics have never been great. My wife and I could barely hear each other talk.
Sad to say that we were a bit disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. My file was done decent but quality wasn't there and food tasted nothing but heavy handed curry /oddly sweet or similar when it should of been simple surf and turf. Usually Roys never fails but don't know what happened this last time.
After my wife ordered a scallop dish, server returned a few minutes later saying they were out. Given that we arrived right at beginning of dinner period, it seems strange that he did not know that when he was taking our order. Doesn't the kitchen inform the servers of items they are out of before the dinner period starts? Anyway, her second choice, the misoyaki butterfish, turned out splendid so maybe it was for the better. I enjoyed the tiger prawns on udon. Grilled Caesar salad is unique and we enjoyed it like we have enjoyed it before.
I would give it overall 2 1/2 stars, we had the 'classic four' some of fish was good, some were dry. The side dishes are just average, the bok choy was bland it just steamed and quite fibrous, the mac and cheese just plain average. Both appetizers, tuna poke and spring rolls were good.
I am a foodie and willing to pay higher prices for well prepared food. The mediocre food does NOT warrant the steep prices. Our server(Shawn) intermittently disappeared, not good either.
Roy's sent me a $25 discount card to be used with a purchase over $50. I spent $130, as we usually do. Our visit landed on a Monday night. They recently removed their Prix Fixe from the regular menu and unbeknownst to us, only have it on Mondays and Sundays now.
The waiter came back with the check and announced in front of my associate that my coupon could not be used on a Monday but we could come back any other night. This was embarrassing and tacky.
I find it interesting that this restaurant has signed up for Open Table, but will not accept Open Table certificate redemptions and on this occasion will not accept their own coupon because they have changed their menu. If management wants to improve their bottom line, perhaps they should not participate in any discount offers instead of using this bait and switch. The coupon fine print does not exclude Mondays and Sundays. Their dining room is always empty when we go. We frequented this restaurant in the past because it was close and the food was passable, but I will not returning again. When we offer our customers coupons we honor them no matter what. Give freely or not at all.
