We ate at this Roy's for the first time last night. We had a reservation so we had no wait. We were seated near the kitchen and it was quite noisy but I don't think it would have been quiet anywhere you sat. That was the only negative. We were immediately given a bowl of edamame to snack on that... More

Dined in this establishment last evening and from the moment you arrive the staff and management go above and beyond to provide a great quality product. Several times during our meal a variety of management personnel dropped by the table to be certain of both the quality of the food and the service being provided. As a cocktail selection I... More

On vacation our schedule is always a little off so at 4:30 after a day of swimming and walking we needed dinner asap. From the minute we pulled into the parking lot our experience was perfect. Free valet parking and a super friendly staff. The hostess suggested the chef's table counter seating and offered our two 6 yr olds something... More

A plate of warm, seasoned edamame is offered to start your meal. Delicious! Not what you'd expect but sort of the sign of things to come. We tried the mixed plates, one with the signature Butterfish, salmon and Mahi Mahi and the other with Fire Shrimp, a crab cake and a lobster tail. Both were delicious. A side dish of... More

When ever in the US we always search out a Roy's. We have visited Maui, Naples and Orlando. This was our first trip to the one at a Rancho Mirage. Our meal was delicious. Two issues 1) Our waitress kept apologising for her lack of service, when we were quite content. 2) More importantly I had organised via e-mail for... More

We had a party of 9 with 4 adults and 5 children. The staff did an exceptional job making sure we were well taken care of. We were blown away by the great customer service. Valet service was very fast and they offered to take our picture while the car was brought around. They had a treasure chest for the... More

We celebrated a birthday tonight at Roy's and had an excellent meal. The restaurant was recommended to us by a local who told us this was the place to go to celebrate a birthday. We had the lobster potstickers and the samosas for appetizers, pecan crusted mahi mahi and red dragon shrimp as mains and pineapple cake and macadamia nut... More

Great service but average food. Loved the edamame served at the beginning of the meal. Ordered steak and swordfish. Steak was overcooked and swordfish portion quite small. Overall experience not bad but probably won't return.

Hawaii is present in the Aloha greeting as well as the menu. I thought the starter platter for 2 a little disappointing as the chicken skewers were a little flavorless and the ribs too sweet. The Ahi Tuna dinner was excellent and the chicken entree with creamy rice good; the chicken meat was very juicy. Service was helpful and friendly.... More
