Enjoyed Roy's in Phoenix and joined the email newsletter. Got notice of upcoming special and knew we were travelling to Palm Desert so thought we would go again. Loved the atmosphere - (reservation essential for Saturday night)- kind of old school Hawaiian. The Hawaiian fusion take on food was great- different without being too extreme. We should have shared the... More

Well, on the computer, Open Table only had spots open after 9:15 PM but (glad I ignored Open Table) we called and they had tables open for us on a "come on in, first name" basis at 6:45PM. Greeted by the friendliest free valet parking people ever! Very friendly efficient wait staff (ALL of them catered to us like crazy......even... More

My family and I went to Roy's whilst on holiday in Palm Springs. When we arrived at the restaurant we started to panic as it appears very upmarket and we had three young children in our party. The staff were so welcoming and brilliant with children! They were each given a toy on arrival and due to the frequency and... More

Big fan of Roy's here or across the water in Oahu,Hawaii. The pacific rim quisine is always varied and scrumptuous. Service here was not as good as in other Roy's where i have been but the food and drink made up for that. I would like to have updates when Roy himself will be cooking and where.

The hype about this restaurant was matched by the quality of food. This Hawaiin fusion restaurant had lovely food choices from seafood to steak, short ribs and vegetarian dishes. The flavours were unique and exotically Hawaiin. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and spices. On Monday's they have a 3 course dinner special that is about the same price... More

We enjoy Roy's at the bar rather than the restaurant itself and that is also opinionated by several friends. It is far more relaxed and friendly

We ate at Roy's using a gift card we recently received. Everything was great! I would self-describe the restaurant atmosphere as "upscale casual". Space was provided near the kitchen so you could watch your food being prepared, if you so desired. The food was unusual and delicious, and included Asian bean pods which were complimentary to start the meal. The... More

The butter-fish is to die for. Try it! Like the fact that they have prefixed menu and change the menu.

Having toys in a treasure chest for the kids as soon as you arrive??? Need I say more parents? With the amount of free appetizers that kept coming for our kids, we didn't even need to order them dinner! And it was all healthy! Not to mention personalized desserts that were a surprise! Our dinners were delicious and our server... More

Great food, as usual and happy-hour drinks are awesome! After dinner, we had the yummy flour-less chocolate cake - this is a must for all chocoholics!
