We alway enjoy having dinner at Roy’s. The wait staff is outstanding. They are friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items. They are close by when we need something but not constantly asking if we need anything. I would recommend Roy’s to any of our friends.

We originally had our table of 8 for outdoor seating, the manager quickly accomodate to change that to indoor dining. All in all it was a great environment to meet up with friends for great food! The Roys combo with Butterfish was awesome!
We love Roy's and will definitely be back.

As soon as we entered the restaurant we were greeted by not just one but 2 hostesses. I could tell they were genuinely happy to greet us. Once seated, it didn't tell long for our to come by and helped us with our drinks orders which were amazing! He even wrote down on an order sheet the name of the beer my husband ordered so we can remember it next time. Food was delicious that we had to order an extra appetizer. The chocolate souffle was to die for. It was a great experience and we will definitely come back.

Our server was very attentive and polite. The ambiance was nice. The appetizer (lobster potstickers) was very good. The dinner, which was mahi-mahi and a salad was terrible. The salad tasted like a bag salad that was very old, many parts were wilted. The mahi mahi tasted like it was taken out of the box and heated.

Ordered mai tai and brut rose champagne, received a glass of rose, exchanged for the champagne after we pointed this out.
The chicken spring rolls lacked taste, bland. The salmon was good, the blackened ahi was too dark red, seemed not fresh, only ate some of it. The waitress was amicable, yet did not check on us, had to ask other wait staff for our needs

Roy's is consistent when it comes to their food. Especially loves the ahi tempura roll-really tasty.

On the flip--service left much to be desired. We had a new server in training--and this is not a reflection of him, but the management. We needed to ask for more water at times, and there was not a lot of check-in after the order was presented. Also--and this is a picky-- it is a higher-end restaurant and he was not taught how to properly pour wine. At $80 a bottle, you have to know how much and to not touch the rim of the glass to the bottle. Again-not his fault but management needs to do better. Also--manager had many opportunities to check-in on customers--something another manager always did at another location- and he missed that chance to connect. It wasn't that busy that those things could not be addressed. Not sure if we'd return to that location.

We had a cousin get-together and we’re pleasantly surprised to find a Sunday night Lobster prix fixe menu. It was essentially getting free appetizer and dessert. The value was terrific. We always enjoy the rib appetizer and chocolate soufflé. Service was great. Enjoyed our cocktails a lot and noticed outdoor seating for those who prefer that.

Our entire experience was outstanding! The hostesses were friendly, polite, and efficient. Our waiter and his team were patient with us, kept the flow at a nice even pace, and were very helpful. The food was amazing! We started with Sushi and Poke which were delicious. I had the Mahi-Mahi with asparagus and potatoes which were all done to perfection. My date ordered the Shellfish Sampler, and was delighted with it! We sampled each other's entrees, and we both agreed that everything was very yummy! I ordered off of the Mahalo Monday menu, which means there's a dessert involved! We chose the Macadamia Nut Bread Pudding, which was absolutely incredible, the perfect end to a superb meal! The drinks were fantastic, my date ordered a Drunken Mule, and I had a Mai-Tai. The entire evening was a sensational dining experience!

Loved our birthday celebration at Roy’s!! Service was wonderful! Food absolutely delicious!! We had lobster potstickers, Aloha roll, poke, sea bass, tiger prawns and blackened ahi!! To top it all off they gave us a piece of chocolate cake with a candle on it! Very sweet!! We already order chocolate soufflé and pineapple upside down cake. Loved everything and hope to visit Roy’s again when in town visiting our daughter. Thank you Roy’s for a fabulous lunch!

Arrived early at 7:00, had a 7:15 reservation. Checked in, waited in bar area for table….hostess missed reservation time. Checked in multiple times for next 30 minutes to see when our table would be ready….they continued to seat others….finally was seated at 7:50. We ordered immediately and didn’t get our food until 8:45. Overall total fail. We understand if short staffed….this was not that, this was just a train wreck. Not the birthday experience we planned at all.

Got seated 30min after our reservation time. Ordered appetizer and entrees. Appetizer came right away. Entrees never came. After 45 min of waiting for our entrees the manager informed us they would not be coming anytime soon. Ended up leaving with no dinner.
