We were set in the cellar room with great ambience and privacy.
I had been to Royce many times before and thought the steak were average. This time the food is excellent: steak meat quality and taste are exceptional.
I would avoid the baked oyster and the bone marrow though. Both have no substance : the oysters were pea size and there were no bone marrow at all under the seasoning. The tomahawk and the ribeye were both exceptional.

We had a birthday dinner there with 4 people. The menu was great and the food was very good. There were two disappointments.

First the chairs were very uncomfortable and I think they know it, because they offered pillows immediately to solve some of the problem.

Second, the wine list was very special, but extremely overpriced. I ordered both a bottle of white and red from the bottom third of the list and it totaled $425! Wow! Both were excellent. There were only a few options under $100 and the average price was probably $300+.

First class service in a beautiful setting. The food was excellent and the tables were separated so noise level was moderate. The wine list is excellent.

Mixing food with value. Good food. Table had no linen no placemats no flower no candle. Ate on hard surface. Dark clothing got white lap napkins. Had to ask for dark napkins
Steaks came plopped on plate, nothing else. Potatoes came overflowing in ramekin hard to serve spilled on table. Creamed spinach too salty to eat. Bread basket was good. Service was good but nothing great. Seemed hurried. O we would not go back. Many exceptional places to eat for the $$$$

The staff was very accomodating and gave us a special dessert since it was my husband's birthday and our first time dining there. They checked in on us frequently and gave us lots of recommendations when we had trouble making a decision on food.

For a high end steakhouse it is a very nice hotel.

None of the food was bad (brother's steak and wife's John Dory were both over), but for what you're paying for the service could have been way better.

They couldn't keep track of who ordered what; were very slow clearing the table; forgot condiments and serving utensils...I could go on.

A one time experience.

Was disappointed when we asked for a recommendation of a house red and were surprised when we received the bill that the one the waiter chose was $38.00 for the glass. I feel that he definitely took advantage of the situation. Really left a bad taste in an overall wonderful dinner.

The marinated hamachi appetizer, filet mignon and potato puree were all excellent. I ordered the filet "blue" and it came rare (not blue) but that's pretty normal - very few kitchens understand how some people (me) love almost raw steak. The waiter was very nice but service was pretty slow - I was at the table for almost 10 minutes before I got water & bread, then another 10 minutes before someone came by to take my order. Expensive, but if you want a luxurious meal while visiting Pasadena, still very much worth a trip.

Charles was our waiter and he was outstanding. Very diplomatically steered my wife away from ordering her meat too well done, and she was very pleased with the result.
My wife also had the bread pudding for desert - said it was one of the best things she had ever eaten!

The Royce Wood-Fired Steak house served up a spectacular evening of dinning and drinks.
The ambiance and views were amazing as was the entire staff who were not only professionally attentive but some of the friendliness waitstaff I have ever encountered. The house cocktails were seasonally creative and the classics superbly done. We were already in a happy place after the beet salad and crab cake then the Colorado rack of lamb was served... it was outstanding. Trying to find an excuse to get back to Pasadena to dine again!

Unfortunately they were understaffed (which is weird on a Saturday) and the service was slow. Unfortunate because it was our anniversary and we were nearly about to leave because of it. Not the wait staffs problem, but management. Should never be that understaffed on a Saturday night! Food was good however and so was the ambience

Food preparation was substandard on the majority of the items and prices at a substantial premium.
Went there to try things for a possible private dinner party and glad we did.
We’ll be going somewhere else.

AMAZING!!! The food was delicious and the service was one of a kind. Talk about service with poise. The property was very clean and the view was breathtaking. They also have an fantastic wine list and delicious cocktails. Someone knows what they’re doing here. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place. They apparently get really busy on the weekends so I would suggest to come in Mid week if you’re trying to have a nice quite dinner for two.

Steak was cooked incorrectly 3 times: 4th time it was tolerable but I couldn’t have been more clear I just wanted pink in the center, whatever they refer to that as (medium rare usually). I was told to allow them to do their medium rare and then we’d flash cook if not enough. It came rare, then waiter disappeared for 20 min just to bring back a completely burnt steak. Then rinse and repeat as a brand new one came out rare. The manager was so embarrassed he brought out one of every side and a bunch of truffle to top the steak. Although a nice gesture, the truffle was unnecessary and wasted, and the sides weren’t too great anyway.

Won’t go back.

Food was excellent although we ordered our steaks medium rare and they came out rate. Great flavor to the meat and the oysters were excellent as well as the truffle risotto. Service was a little slow and he recommended the crab cake which I thought was just ok. Dessert was complimentary since we were celebrating an anniversary. Giant chocolate chip cookies with whipped cream. Great martinis.
