We have been going to Royce for years, dating back to pre-Steakhouse days when Chef Féau had awesome tasting menus. We continued going when they converted to a steakhouse formula, and used to think their steaks were some of the best in town.

Yesterday's visit may be our last. Prices have gone up quite a bit, especially on the wine bottles. But foodwise, I'm just no sure the quality is still where it used to be. My wife's medium rare was very rare, and the flavor on both of our $65 steaks was kinda bland and just not all that impressive. Pasadena has a lot of good steakhouses, and last night's visit at the Royce will make us go to these other spots a bit more often for a while.

Noisy, lovely venue, wait staff forgot to serve an appetizer salad (which they later did when reminded). Prices of wine list selections were almost entirely priced for the royal family. Just a handful of selections <$150 either forcing you to pay a very high price or just avoid a wine selection entirely. The whole wine price thing was so offensive that I will go elsewhere for a nice meal in the future. The meal was good but not that good.

This had to have been one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! Everything about our evening was exceptional! From the moment we were, seated to our departure - flawless! To call our meal exceptional would be an understatement! I ordered the Australian Waygu Ribeye....cooked to perfection! Every single item that was placed at out table that evening, exquisite! It only would I recommend this restaurant, I would shout it from the mountain tops! ABSOLUTELY — GO!!!

Having been to the Royce several times, this was certainly the worst food experience.

The steak tasted of burnt garlic and was very chewy. (We ordered the porterhouse to share.)

Presentation of food was good. Just need better quality steak.

This is a tough one because so many things were done so well. The service, ambience, and a good portion of the food was first class. The exception was the steaks (...and this is a steakhouse). Four of the seven in our party ordered a different cut of meat (2 Greg Norman Wagyu ribeyes, 1 strip of the same, and 1 Brandt filet). The filet had to be replaced because it was such a poor piece of meat, and all of the others (including the replacement filet) were underwhelming to say the least. Tough and difficult to cut or chew. We ate at 4 steakhouses while we were in town. Ruth's Chris and Arroyo were tied for the best, and The Royce and The Derby were tied for a distant 2nd in terms of the food. The Royce could have topped the first two if the steaks had met the expectations established by simply reading the menu and looking around the room to soak in the setting. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our dinner and all the things that were well executed (service, vibe, most of the other dishes, etc). The steaks were why we came though, and in that regard The Royce made a poor account of themselves. Frankly, I suspect that none of the meat we were served was of particularly high quality. Not prime, and definitely not Wagyu. If I'm wrong, The Royce should cancel their contract with Greg Norman and Brandt, and just stick with USDA prime meat like their competitors that so greatly outperformed them relative to the steaks.

Good wine, great food, great service. I’m a vegetarian, the server suggested risotto, made with French butter and truffle, it’s was the best risotto I ever had.

I'm disappointed. Royce is a beautiful restaurant with elegant service. But, for being a steakhouse the quality of the steaks are not comparable to other steakhouses around Pasadena. We even sent back all 3 of our steaks ranging from a filet mignon, rib eye and Australian wagyu New York Strip which were supposed to be cooked medium rare, but instead were served more medium or medium well. The charring on the steaks seemed too much as well. We also had an issue with the side dishes. our spinach was overly salty and sent it back so it could be served with no salt, and the mac and cheese was not tender. The desserts were delicious though. We had the begnet and the peach cobbler. And coffee was also good. Overall, i'm hoping the Royce steps up their game. The venue is so great for this neighborhood, but I wish the food was on par with everything else. I'll stop by again in the future, but in the meantime I'll hit up the other neighborhood steakhouses.

It was my sister-in-law's birthday & I wanted to take her somewhere new. Thanks to OpenTable we came here and I'm so glad we did. From the moment we walked in we received excellent service. The food & drinks were amazing! High class restaurant. We both loved everything. My sister-in-law was very happy. We are definitely coming back here with our husbands :)

Our second time this last weekwnd was fabulous . Had dinner last year and it was pleasant. I really like how the portions are big and you get your monies worth . All the entrees are delicious . Sometimes you go to expensive restaurants and you get so little for the amount you pay for . The side dishes are plenty and one dessert shared by 3 was enough ..
We were totally satisfied and we were in a food coma .

The steak was perfect. I asked for rare and it was cooked exactly right. Highest quality meat. Just delicious, as were the sides. The service was generally quite good. The weak link was our waiter. He was nice but in the beginning he interrupted us regularly (we were having am important conversation) and then towards the end of the meal he disappeared. The second waiter or bus person was wonderful and attentive.

My spouse and I chose one each of the premium stake offerings to do an impromptu taste comparison (The Brant Farms won). All of the food was superb. Our waiter was wonderful, informative, and of good humor. The Manager (Simon) was equally courteous, informative, and professional.

Victoria was amazing and kind and setup the experience perfect from the start. Food was excellent and best crab cake I have ever had.

I was traveling by myself and small kind things of finding the right table makes an experience and Victoria’s focus and compassion plus the best food I have had in this area made it great.

I absolutely loved this place. We had the Australian wagyu ribeye and the Californian bone in ribeye are one of those and all of the food was a decent however the wagyu completely overshadowed the other stake. We had the Mac and cheese, potatoes and the truffle fries. The potatoes were below average but everything else was great. Service was AMAZING!!! Drinks were good. And absolutely recommend this place.

For the price, Royce is really not meeting other high-end restaurants value-added services and food quality. Really should not have to pay for a potato when you order a $75 to @100 steak. Wine sections are very nice, but prices are way out of line.

Had dinner with my Pasadena based adult son, and we were impressed with the superb food. Our server, Charles was kind, patient and knowledgeable about each element of our order, and also the choice of wine. The dining room is elegant, and the table linens, immaculate.

Treat yourself for a special occasion to The Royce.

PS> I had the John Dory fish, and it was perfect, although The Royce is billed as a steakhouse.
