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...
Poor service both nights. Food was totally average at best Would not eat there unless you have no other options
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.
Food was excellent, service was good but not exceptional.
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.
Our experience at the Royce was terrific. The food is innovative, well presented and delicious. Table service was informative and attentive without hovering.
Decor was delightful and we were seated immediately. Steven and Jesus served us at a level of class experienced at Addison in San Diego. Superb lighting, cuisine, and artistic delectable creations by Chef Dom elevated my mood. Dining experience at The Royce is remarkable.
