Roy’s is a high-end, high-profile chain of restaurants owned by Asian fusion pioneer chef Roy Yamaguchi. Their food and service (both of which are excellent) are the subject of many reviews, so to avoid being repetitious I’d like to mention the way they treat patrons who are celebrating a special occasion. My wife and I decided to celebrate our 29th... More

When we made our reservation, they asked if it was for a special occasion, and we told them it was our anniversary. There were lei flowers in the form of a heart on our table, we were put in a more quiet room, everyone expressed their congratulations, and they gave us a free dessert. Incredible, and, BTW, the drinks were... More

Great dinner (crab/swordfish), good drinks, good service. I thought the entree was special (I would get it again); the chocolate souffle, to me, was good but not special (I would try something different).

We ate at Roy's in Newport Beach this past weekend. The food was delicious, the service was great and the setting was super! I had the grilled salmon and it was perfect! We enjoyed a long and relaxing dinner with friends. The best part of the meal was the chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream.

Our server Thomas delivered outstanding service. Very knowledgeable, super friendly and just a classy guy. We took his recommendations for the grilled scallop and pork chop entrees. We were not disappointed. The scallops were thick and cooked to perfection. The first time I have been given a choice on how I preferred them cooked! Served on a bed of pesto... More

We love dining at Roy's on all of the Hawaiian Islands, but for some reason, our local Roy's never measures up to the great food and service we experience on Maui, Oahu, and Kauai. The food and service just isn't that great at the Newport Beach location. My husband and I have dined there together, have met friends there for... More

A friend and I went to Roy's for dinner while visiting California. Everything I got was fantastic and cooked perfectly! Service was great, we sat at the bar and the bartenders were friendly and the waiters/waitresses who would pick drinks up were very friendly also! I got an Ebi Roll, which was amazing! It had coconut, shrimp tempura, avocado, and... More

I have eaten at several Roy's locations a never been disappointed. The NPB location was no exception. I went there twice in one week I enjoy the food so much. The calamari is about the best I have eaten. I enjoyed the Butterfish for mu entree one night and the Ahi tuna the second visit. The waitstaff was excellent, Jesse... More

I have been to Roy's in NPB for the 15th time, this time with my family to celebrate our last night out in OC, after spending a week in Huntington Beach. Although the local chef had a tasting menu as a special treat, we decided to go for a blend of sushi starters and seared ahi tuna. The signature dish... More
