The food and service were fantastic! I was in a party of three and we tried several entrees, sides, and desserts. Everything was delicious. We will definitely be returning.

Royce in an excellent steakhouse. The choices are plentiful and each cut f meat was cooked to perfection. The shrimp cocktail was delicious as well as our vegetables of brussels sprouts and asparagus and potatoes. We brought our own bottle of wine. I think $35 for a corkage fee is a bit high, but cheaper than buying four glasses of wine. The restaurant is beautiful with big, white barrel chairs. The noise level was fun yet quiet enough to hear each other. We were celebrating a birthday and received a delicious, free desert. I look forward to going again.

We went to The Royce to treat our friends to a special occasion, and our evening there was special indeed and quite delightful. The location and view from the windows is iconic. The cocktails were marvelous. Our table of 4 split the tomahawk ribeye that was perfectly prepared and more than enough for the 4 of us. The service of both Tim and Sullivan, as well as others, were attentive, friendly and well timed.

We reside in the Hollywood Hills and our routine steakhouse is Cut or Wolfgang or Palm in Beverly Hills. This night we decided to drive east and visit The Royce because we use to reside around the block from the Langham. We were pleasantly surprised! The quality of steaks, the attentive without being overburdening server, the ambiance was all a perfect combination. We would definitely return and make the drive east again to have a perfect evening.

Restaurants takes pride in their service and quality of their food. Everything we ordered was delicious, except for one side (mac n cheese) that we thought was too salty, we barely touched it. It was a nice touch for waiter to deduct from the bill.

We like to bring out of town guests here because they are often impressed with the grounds and the food. My only suggestion is that some of the chair covers were a bit worn, perhaps consider changing them out for something new.

For me it is about the food and I thought the food was outstanding. We shared a porterhouse and it was a great piece of meat, cooked very well. Very flavourful. Service was a tiny bit slow but it was a quiet night and I don't think they had enough staff working that night. Their steaks are some of the best in Pasadena and they don't make the mistake of smothers great steaks in sauces. Be aware that all sides are extra. This isn't for someone on a budget but it is worth every penny. Will make a point of going there every time I am Pasadena.

This is my new favorite restaurant. I have dined here twice in the last two weeks.
My favorite dish is the strip steak. It is magnificently prepared with the perfect ruby inside (when ordered medium-rare) and crisply, wood-infused flavored on the outside. On my last visit I ordered the side dish of mushrooms which was a perfect combination for the steak. On my first visit I tried the potatoes au gratin but found the potatoes to be undercooked for my taste.
As for the service, it is the best. From the hostess at the front desk to Robert our waiter, who was attentive, though knew when not to interrupt our conversation. This is difficult to find, even in a fine restaurant. Robert was outstanding!
The steaks at this restaurant are far superior to those at Ruth Chris or Alexander's.
As for the bill, for both visits of a party of two, our bill has never been over $100.

This was our first time at the Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse and we were not disappointed. from the valet parking to the beautiful hotel with the polished floors and gardens this is a place that you want to be. Our server was very attentive and gave service with a smile. You could smell the wood fire. The steak was fantic and my wifes Sea Bass was perfect. We plan on taking a stay cation and getting a room in the near future.

Underwhelming experience. We dined early on a Saturday night with 4 persons. Starters were better that the steak entrees. At a place that calls itself a wood fired steak house the steak ordered rare ahold not come out medium on a blazing hot plate. Meat quality was not great especially for the price. Service was good at first but went downhill when the restaurant got busy. Over a 20 minute wait just to get our check. Will not return anytime soon.

For the consumers: We love hosting occasional dinners with friends at the Royce. The ambiance is quaint and private. Food is always excellent, and well worth the price.

For the facility: We have found consistently that the host/hostess area needs improvement. Not very well trained and not very professional. Phone and in -person demeanor could use some help. The dining staff is very well trained and excellent.

That was one of the best, perhaps the best, steak I have ever had. Our server Matthew, was terrific! Of special note, the dessert we had was the pavlova and wow! That was, without a doubt, the best I've ever had. Only minor item was the potatoes au gratin - very good, but not on par with everything else. We will definitely be back to The Royce. We may stay at a different property than the Langham, but that's another review.

Went to The Royce as part of a staycation at The Langham, which is always an elegantly beautiful property. The last time we went to The Royce a couple of years ago, the food and service were truly outstanding. Not so, this time. The restaurant is still beautiful, but after almost 2.5 hours of sitting it it, even the beauty started to fade. The lobster bisque was excellent, and was served pretty quickly after ordering it, along with a pretty mediocre, smallish shrimp cocktail. But almost an hour later, our steaks arrived cold and undercooked and had to be sent back. As we waited another 20 minutes for them to return, we tried the giant baked potato, which was drenched in sour cream, as well as the artichoke, which was drenched in vinegar or lemon juice or some other extremely sour flavoring making it almost impossible to eat, and the creamed spinach, which was tepid in temperature and had so much garlic in it that it was inedible. The steak finally arrived back and was just okay. Still relatively undercooked (which made no sense given how long we waited for it), and totally under-seasoned. Had to ask for salt. $300 for a party of 3 (2 of whom were children) and an over 2 hour waiting (not dining) experience, kicks the value rating way down. Maybe it was just a bad night. But one that will keep us from returning any time soon.

This restaurant is very romantic with great atmosphere. Our server Tim was extremely friendly, attentive, and super helpful. The food here tasted good.

The reason I gave this restaurant a 1 Star was mainly due to the disappointment I had in the manager and how he handled a situation. Here's what happen: The manager walked up to my wife and I and told us that there had been a couple of tables complaining that our baby was making loud noises (our baby is almost 1 & she's baby-talking). He suggested that maybe we could take our baby for a walk. We didn't want to ruin other people's dining experiences, so my wife and I took turns to hold our baby & take her for walks. He prefer give us inconvenince is perfectly fine. As we ate our food, there were loud giggling, laughs, loud conversations, and loud music playing from the private events on the other side of the room. It was so messed up because it's okay for other people to be loud and not my baby. When expressed my unsatisfactory to the manager, he only responded with just an okay. He did not apologize nor care about us. For the convenience when he first told us the complaints and we like whatever about the complaints. I am not sure if it has to do with my race - since my family was the only Asian party at the restaurant.

This place is definitely not baby-friendly unless your baby sleeps through your meal or in grade school. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone after this. Our dining experience COULD BE so much better if the manager could have apologized for the inconvenience. The manager doesn't care about his customer.

We came here for the christmas dinner on christmas day — pre fix menu only. The restaurant was very nice and the hotel entrance and lobby were all decorated for the holiday. Our waiter was only all right, we were not offered any bread unlike the tables around us. The roasted heirloom carrots tasted very much like home varnish smells... would not recommend that salad at all. We ordered the rib eye and new york steaks they were pretty good however sometimes chewy. The overall experience was just all right, the food wasn’t bad but not worth $300 (145/ea). Maybe because we look young that the service wasn’t as great and didn’t make our experience worth $300 .. not even worth $200 for the two of us. Valet parking was good, easy pick up and drop off. Maybe go somewhere else instead for a christmas date...
