A taste of Asian fusion with Hawaiian flair. Superbly crafted menu and lovely atmosphere. This venue located in a conference hotel but an oasis I in itself.

We got a coupon for $25 dollars off. I had been to Roy's before and it was wonderful. I had forgotten how good it is. He had never been there before. They had special menu items that were only available at this restaurant by this chef, of course I had to try them. We had the poke - ahi tuna... More

We were a party of eight, celebrating a friend's birthday. We all got different things and we all enjoyed our entrees. I had the Roy's Trio -- three different kinds of fish, perfect for a person who can't make up her mind what to have :) There is an extensive wine list, and the desserts are TDF! Try the molten...

This was the best food. Service was a bit sluggish, but the food was unbelievable. Cannot wait to save up enough to go back.

Roy's can always be counted upon for excellent quality food. The appetizers of lobster potstickers and seared scallops were terrific and the scallops had a beautiful presentation. My mother-in-law said the salmon was the best she has ever had. My husband always orders the trio of fish so he can experience the salmon, butterfish and nut-crusted mahimahi. He loved every... More

Took my friend here for her birthday in July, although I have been here several times before. Every time I come here, the service is excellent. They must have a fabulous training program. The servers know the menu very well and are able to answer questions. I know this is the way fine dining should be, but at times, service... More

We have been to almost every Roy's across the USA! Huge fan of his food. Part of the reason we came to Phoenix was to be near the Roy's located at the JW Marriott property. We were thankful they allowed us to get their happy hour food "to go"! Awesome! However; unfortunately it was the worse it has ever been.... More

While staying at Marriott Canyon Villas, we went to happy hour at Roy's. Staff was very friendly and the tapas were outstanding. I really liked the ahi and ebbi sushi.

We ate on the patio which was so peaceful. We all enjoyed our meals which were mostly seafood. The waitstaff was attentive and the food was a good value.

We last visited Roy's two years ago whilst staying at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge on holiday and although we are now staying in a different hotel, my wife and I though a trip back would be well worth the short journey to relive the wonderful meals we had there. Although the menu has changed in the two years since... More
