I'd been wanting to try a Roy's and tonight found myself just a block away from one at dinner time, but with only an hour before an appointment. I went for it and am glad I did. I alerted my waiter of my limited time and he was SUPER. I skipped appetizers and went straight for the entrée choosing the... More

This is a great restaurant, except for the fact that they don't serve bread. I don't know why one would make great sauces if you don't have any bread to sop it with

Great location on the main strip. Nice decor, fairly large restaurant, spacious, tables well separated. A bit noisy for intimate conversation. Very attentive service. We dined at a busy time but were not rushed. Very nice selection of appetisers and shareables. My wife had the scallops and I had the spare ribs...both excellent, creatively presented. Nice wine list. I'm not... More

I enjoyed the fare that I had at this restaurant. I liked the food so much that I requested of the manager that he send me the recipes. He did send them to me, too! (That was nice of him). On a different occasion, I went in for lunch (not knowing that they do not serve lunch). I then asked... More

Went there couple times, I really want to enjoy this place since the one in downtown LA is a bit of drive and parking is a problem. But the overall quality is not as good..

Roy's is our go-to place for special occasion celebrations. It's comfortable for a family with kids, but the food is really special -- lots of Hawaii inspired menu items featuring wonderful fresh seafood that are our favorites.

Great restaurant--fabulously prepared dishes at reasonable prices. HOWEVER, I have not had such luck at the ones in Pasadena or downtown LA. I had a fabulous chicken dish in Woodland Hills and ordered the same one in Pasadena--it came uncooked in the inside. Plus the Pasadena restaurant is horribly noisy and a bit claustrophobic.

Roy's in Vegas is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere so I have to compare. This location is really good but Vegas is still better. There is valet in the front but I didn't see it. There is public parking around the corner. Service was good. I usually get the filet & the one in Vegas is better (I wonder... More

First time that I have tried an hawaiian restaurant of the mainland, so did not know what to expect, as I am from the UK. I really enjoyed the experience, and the food was interesting to choose from I had calamari to start with, which was just a little chewy, and an excellent barramundi entree to follow. My wife had...

Worst Experience in my Life. We were there to celebrate a friends birthday. We all ordered 4 different entrees. They all came out at different times....the food was prepared wrong, the fish tasted like cardboard, It was just gross. 350.00 For crap! Never again. Place sucked!
