The food and presentation was average. It appeared that the chef was not there and that the food was randomly put on the plates without much thought. The duck breast was presented in one big piece, the asparagus spears were huge and did not taste that great. The polenta was put in a bowl like it was oatmeal in a nursing home. The food was not very good and the prices were very high for a really so so meal. Our server was super nice and experienced however. This could be such a great restaurant if it was managed properly.

We've been there before for special occasions. The wait staff was courteous and attentive, and we really enjoyed the entire experience. This time, however, our water disappeared for long periods of time and twice we had to ask someone else to have our waiter "drop by".... Not sure whether we'll go here again. The waiter was very nice, but perhaps they were understaffed. At such a fine restaurant as The Royce, however, you don't expect to be ignored...

Entry to hotel is beautiful. The restaurant was very well done and the ambiance was very nice. The wine list was versatile with a huge selection. Price point was extremely high for value and some notable Calif. wines were missing. The occasion was New Years Eve and I thought there could have been much more of a festive mood establish to mark the occasion. Was pretty much business as usual. The food was of good quality but was not noteworthy. All in all ok but not a place you must go to.

Wine list is impressive, meat was outstanding, oysters were to die for. But some elements were simply not acceptable at that level of service and price.
- stains on the furniture
- overcooked lobster in the surf and turf (and I am pretty sure the wooden skewer in the tail is supposed to be removed before the dish is served)
- sides not properly cooked (french fries undercooked and soggy in a steakhouse, crispy mushrooms in the fricassee)
- waiter brought the check without asking if we were actually done (which we were not)

I will not recommend that place and most likely will not return.

CHRISTMAS Dinner set menu with 3 course meal including a second surprise oderve ... Beef Wellington was delicious, however I had to send it back first time as it was too rare, even for me, and not warm enough. 2 ND time was the charm. Melt in your mouth good.

Had a beautiful Christmas eve dinner with my boyfriend. This was our first visit to the restaurant and based on the reviews, we had rather high expectations. The menu was different for this occasion and its cost was somewhat higher (about $130 per person, without wine) than usual. There were three courses to choose from and the selection was really good. We arrived on time and had to wait for a few minutes. Noise level was tolerable and the setting was nice. The food was very well prepared, even though at the beginning of the dinner servings were rather small. We were not sure if that would be the case for the remaining servings, so that got us a little bit by a surprise. Our main dish took extra long to be served and we noticed that some other guests, who arrived after us, were served before. The manager soon stopped by and apologized for the oversight, which was a nice gesture. Overall, the food was not on par with what we expected it to be. My boyfriend had a soup which was on a sweet note, a rather unusual flavor, and I had roasted duck, which was unfortunately too salty. The best part was their cheesecake dessert. On a scale from 1 to 5, food was a 4; their service 4.5, and ambiance a 4. Nice experience, but not worth the hype and the cost.

Been a few times now but was there last night and as remarkable as ever. Can’t say enough about the entire team at the Royce. Steaks and seafood are as good as anywhere you will find in the city, if not better, and service is second to none. Chef Dominick came out to meet us and everything he and his team does is amazing. Got the true A5 steak, off menu black truffle risotto (and they don’t skimp on the truffles) and scored a 1990 wine for a great price. If you get the chance and have a few extra bucks to burn, you won’t be disappointed.

My experience overall was great. I liked how I was offered a preference for water. Server was patient and let my boyfriend and I sample different kinds of wines. My filet mignon was the best that I have ever tasted. I also enjoy how a simple mac n cheese can taste so good! Definitely worth the price. This place is on the pricer side, so I most likely will be returning for date night/special occasions.

Well, The Royce was kind of a let down. Always wanted to try this beautifully designed/decorated steak house in one of my favorite cities, Pasadena. It has the "look" going for it but, the steak was sub par. Also, the music was not "on point." Blues mixed with Country in a chic, white, room doesn't work. Honestly, I'd go again and skip the steak (I had the Wagyu). The waiter touted it as: "melt in your mouth" so, of course I needed it. Originally, I was going for the Filet and Lobster but, the staff went on and on about the New York Strip Wagyu, that it was a "No Brainer" or, so I thought. The au gratin potatoes and my wedge were stellar and so was the bread pudding but, the main event was chewy, slightly too charred on the outside and not my speed. The bonus and reason for going to The Royce is next door is an amazing bar: The Tap Room. Dark, Bruiting and a killer jazz band that rocked some of the old peeps out of their chairs and into a little "scoot" on the dance floor, charming. I'll go back for that anyday...

Our dinner was OK. There are a lot of other places that are more innovative than the Langham though. We brought a bottle of wine, bit also ordered 4 other drinks for 2 people and were disapointed wit the $35 corkage fee they charged. For $300, I think there are other options and I don't think we would go back again.

Unbelievable filet mignon! Perfect for our 2nd wedding anniversary! Servers were gracious and had a good sense of humor! Sides of broccoli and Mac n cheese were perfect complimentary side dishes with our Aztec oven steaks! We are beer people and they had a excellent array of beer. The Japanese black lager is a must. Don't miss out on this dining experience you won't regret it!

Exquisite food, great chef. Nice ambiance, excellent attentive service. Very knowledgeable staff. The food is quite expensive but worth it. This is a very high-end steakhouse and it is amazing to be able to taste the different flavors of meat from all over the world.

There are two things I didn't like -
1. The ambiance (appearance and view out windows) is beautiful, but there was loud blaring music that sounded like hard rock that ruined this for me. If I'm going to spend a lot of money to really enjoy a nice dinner, I don't want intrusive music. I asked the waiter about this, and they turned the volume way down for me, which I really appreciated.

2. The dress code is "elegant casual" - and so I dressed up. I like a restaurant where everyone looks nice if it is a high end restaurant. However, this was not enforced, and I was disappointed to see folks in jeans / shorts . . . . . this impacted the ambiance for me.

The Royce is a wonderful place for a special occasion or if you just want to treat yourself to an indulgent evening. The ambiance is relaxed and romantic, and well suited to a pleasurable dining experience. Fantastic service that made our night really memorable. The wait staff was very attentive and made sure that every detail was executed perfectly. Lastly, the food. It was simply presented, but perfectly executed. Steaks were juicy and flavorful, sides were nice complements. Not a great place for the budget conscious, but for the right occasion or special night out, this is well worth it.

We planned the day to stay at the hotel and dine at The Royce. The restaurant did not disappoint. We arrived at our reservation time and after the hostess asked if we had any food allergies (no) and was the evening a special occasion (yes) immediately seated us. Our waiter was friendly and made us feel special. He suggested a very nice wine that I was not familiar with and it was very good. We ordered the lobster bisque (actually had two nice pieces of lobster in it) and the sweetbread appetizer - excellent! Then we had the porterhouse for two - charred rare and it was cooked perfectly.

It has potential, but they miss the Mark. I assume lack of experience on the management. The wait staff should be more attentive, and realize they are there to serve,not to entertain.
