We always love Roy's but tonight they let us down. First we had a 7:00 reservation on open table and they told us they had it for 7:15, we even had the phone to show them. So they were not ready for us. Then ordered wine pairing meal and they brought the wrong wine. Service was terrible. So slow, delays... More

Great food as always, and given this was Hawaii it was actually a value compared to other hotel restaurants.

This is my go-to choice on Big Island...for a little romance, a family get-together, or birthday bash with friends. Excellent cuisine, superb bar and wine list, and the divine signature chocolate souffle. Make a reservation unless you're just solo, at the bar, for a nice red and an appetizer.

We have dined at several Roy's Restaurants-Las Vegas and Maui to name two. All have been excellent experiences. Our dinner at Roy's Waikoloa was no exception. My husband had the short ribs which were amazing. Tender and delicious. Plus the portion was large. I had the salmon which was superb. Our service was excellent. A great evening in a beautiful...

I had a reservation for 5:30, not exactly prime time, and was placed at a table in front of the bar, in the main pathway in and out of the restaurant, next to a table with an infant. I asked for a different side dish than offered on the menu and was served a plate with a very lonely piece... More

I had been to a Roy's in Phoenix and was definitely underwhelmed, but this Roy's was above marvelous! Excellent from apps to dessert. We enjoyed a well-priced prix fixe deal. The place was packed but our server handled everyone with ease.

You cannot go wrong on Roys Waikoloa! The unique fusion of Hawaiian mostly locally grown cuisine with our favorite cuisine makes Roys the legend it has become, and Roy's Waikoloa is the best place to experience a uniquely delicious experience. The recently remodeled restaurant perfected the dining experience resolving a previous "noise" factor too! Tis place is a " must... More

This is not the first time I ate at a Roy's restaurant. As before, the food and service were great. I had the ribeye . It was tasty, tender, and just right.
