My first visit there but definitely not my last. Ambiance? A Service? A Food? A+ This was a great experience that needs repeating. I would heartily recommend!

Went to Roy's couple of months ago. First visit. The bar was packed as it was happy hour was just about to end. Shortly after happy hour was over, the bar was empty. I guess it must be the place to go for happy hour. We were seated opposite the open kitchen. We looked over the menu and ordered a... More

I have been to several different Roys restaurants, but have the most experience with the one here in Sarasota. My profession has also allowed me to attend many pharmaceutical dinners here as well. Girlfrieinds and I have also been to the "Aloha hour" a time or two. However, I am totally unimpressed with the offerings at happy hour as all... More

Great sushi and atmosphere sitting at the kitchen bar. The cooks were interactive and open to talk about what they were cooking while staying on track. The manager came by to give me a flower for my hair and introduce himself. I thought this was very cute and personal of him. Although I did not drink this visit. I highly... More

We waited 45 minutes for appetizers and the rest of the service went downhill. Very young servers offered no explanation of the menu, unless specifically asked. Food was decent but then we were never asked if we wanted dessert. Asked if I wanted a refill of my wine an hour after I ordered the first glass. There are many places... More

We are fans of Roy's BUT, this one is not up to the quality of other Roy's. The appetizers were very oily and tasteless. The dinners were fine, but the veggies served with the main dishes were again on the greasy side. Finally, the coffee was very weak-like colored water! Sorry for the average rating, but this experience will make... More

We always visit the Roy's in Kaanapali, Maui just for the Chocolate Souffle. We like to sit at the bar and visit with the bartenders and other guests. When we sat down at the bar in Sarasota we notice an odd smell. The bar is very small and dark. The bartender seemed disorganized but friendly. When I got up to... More

Nice place for a romantic dinner. The food and service were excellent. The managers came around to every table to greet guests, which was a very nice touch. Also has a very nice happy hour menu.
