We had such a great time at Roy's .Great service and food. The calamari and coconut shrimp appetizers were perfect and a little unique which is fun. Very nice wine list and the steak and lobster with hollandaise was Devine! I can not wait to eat at Roy's again!!

Our friends selected this restaurant and while it looks nice from the outside, once inside it was all first class. The meal was excellent, the service was exceptional and when the maitre d' found out that we were going to the theater he arranged a shuttle for us to drop us off at the theater, no charge. I had the... More

My boyfriend has been talking about this place forever and we finally went. He has been in Hawaii and here. I had driven by this place a million times and never noticed it as it is very inconspicuous. Right across from Holy Name cathedral! The cocktails were delicious. I had a mango mojito which tasted very much like the ones... More

Again, being a chain restaurant, we are beyond impressed with Roy's!!!! It is not only the superb food, the service, the pairings, the atmosphere, that shows you that a lot of thought and work is behind success!!it is not pretentious, not fancy but elegant, warm surroundings that do not distract from the real focus of your visit: the food experience!!!

I picked the Passion fruit pisco sour; it was delicious. Since many of my coworkers were their first time at Roy's, we ordered the appetizer assorted... More

We visited this restaurant with a party of 16. Perfect staff, great atmosphere. The food was really outstanding. Especially the vegeterian dishes they made were different, great taste. We will be back!

Being huge fans of Roy's in Poipu, Kauai, we were thrilled to find it on the list of available restaurants when we wanted to book dinner with friends in Chicago. The ambience is different from that of Kauai. Instead of open and airy with tropical foliage, you get warm, understated elegance with an Asian touch. Both very nice. The food... More

We had fabulous food and a wonderful server - our first time at Roy's and loved it. We were a little skeptical as this was a chain restaurant - but this is not your average chain. Pricey but we ate well and had excellent service. Make reservations.
