We were last here for our 25th wedding anniversary and last Monday we celebrated our 30th there! It was as excellent as the least time - from the personalised printed greeting and our pre-dinner cocktails to our framed photo and after dinner drinks. The food was simply stunning.

The food is delicious. The servers and busers are excellent. Our compliments to servers David and Joey and the bartender Dar although all employees from hosts/hostess, busboys and girls are terrific. We appreciate the chef Adam, manager, Kameron L., and assistant managers, Eddie and Delfina who treat us very well. From the food to the help, Roys is great! We... More

We have been to Roy's many times. It is a favorite and we were not disappointed this time. We always love the warm Edamame beans they put on the table. My dish of Seared Scallops on a mound of mashed potatoes and pork belly was delicious. My husband order a platter of Lobster Tail, Crab Cake and Shrimp along with... More

Roy's has a great reputation but is flawed and overpriced. Service is not genuine, but scripted. Food is quite good but not excellent and certainly not worth the price. On our last visit, there were tons of flies.

First time visit with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we arrived earlier than our booking and sat at the bar and had the famous Hawaiian martini, yum you have to try one! It was happy hour so we had our starter at the bar, very nice, we were then taken to our table and given the best service... More

I've eaten and Roy's Asian Fusion restaurants in Hawaii and Anaheim. So I knew the type of menu I was getting into at the Rancho Mirage location ... I seem to go for the same things. Nothing wrong with that. I love the boat of pupus... especially the ribs... probably the most flavorful ribs ever... just my prejudice talking :)...... More

This restaurant provides the friendliest, most courteous service I have had in the desert. From the parking staff to the busboy, they are consistently such a pleasure to be with! The menu is too limited, however, I had the best piece of salmon I have ever had in a restaurant! This restaurant is a real winner and I hope they... More

The fact that they offer the Aloha hour every day is a big plus. This Roy's is a very nice branch of all of the Roy's restaurants. Lovely dining room and bar area. Ignore other reviews insulting the décor; it's a very nice restaurant and there are many nice restaurants in Rancho Mirage. This is one of them. Ordered their... More

The food is as good as Roy's gets. Consistent, tasty and great presentation. What irritated me is that we got there right on the change from dinner to Aloha hour food. Both were available and I wanted light bites from the Aloha menu and my husband wanted a full dinner. There were diners in both areas but the manager without... More
