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

Overall dining in this area was not the best, so we looked forward to Roy's which was highly recommended. The four of us who had dinner here were all disappointed. Ambiance pleasant enough, though not unusual, but food no better than adequate.

Food and service were beyond outstanding. We were there for restaurant week menu and it was a feature of Roy's greatest hits. They didn't do too much new but they really don't need to. The staff at this particular Roy's is exceptional, professional, and friendly. As we were leaving every employee we passed thanked us, including the valet! Whomever is... More

The service, food and ambiance was 5 star. We were in the Desert for a week, going out for fine dining nightly. This was by far the best restaurant we visited. Don't miss it. It is perfect for special occasions.

I have to go here whenever I'm in the Palm Springs area...the happy hour at 4:30 is absolutely the best. Dining in the restaurant is a special occasion as the staff are knowledgeable and on point. They remember us as regular diners here. Last of all the cuisine is always fantastic.

I love this particular location of Roy's restaurants. Over the time's I've traveled to this area of the country, they are consistently delicious. The fish I had was fresh, the sauce delicate and well balanced. What is a visit here without ordering the ribs? Smokey, bites of heaven on a bone. I can't wait to come back.

We were so lucky to get a bunch of great referrals on our last visit to Palm Springs - and this was one of them. A couple from Portland, that we played Silver Rock with, suggested it. Right on 111, we're driven by it many times before, not we know to stop. I started with a Mai Tai. I've sampling... More

When we went in November we had the sushi roll of a lifetime. So delicious! So we came back wanting the same one. We found out they didn't have it. Everything we ordered was still delicious but not as good as our previous experience. They also didn't have the sable fish anymore wish was incredible and we were really looking... More
