I love this Roy's in my hometown because of the staff. Yes, the food is wonderful, the sushi with wagu beef and truffle oil, mmm. The wine list and by the glass fabu. But, the staff, run by Bryson Keens is spectacular. When they say their guests are like family, they mean it. Thank you.

Some friends took us to Roy's for the first time last weekend and all I can say is "wow". Well, I'll say a little more. We sat right at the Chef's table, looking into the immaculate kitchen. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, like we were new friends. They brought us assortments of amazing food... More

Another excellent meal at Roy's in Baltimore. The cocktails are always so interesting and delicious! From appetizers, to entrees to desserts, there is never a bad bite. Fantastic service and we never feel rushed. They have a wonderful atmosphere, and always a great dining experience.

We ate here Friday June 13th. I had noted in our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary and they had a placard and some ribbon on the table to make it festive. We started with a Hawaiian Martini and Mai Tai, both of which we enjoyed. I had the email list special of lobster potstickers, lobster tail, and filet... More

I have been going to this restaurant for last 12 years. The service is outstanding. The food is delicious especially the Miso Butterfish.

It's not easy to find great staff, service, and food in one place, but Roy's definitely has all three under the same roof! Again, I say awesome staff, service, and food. I was treated like royalty by Ericka, Justin S., and Philice. They should be highly commended. I will definitely come back to Roy's in Baltimore.

We were absolutely blown away by this experience and have not stopped talking about it yet. The food was the absolute best we have EVER had and we dine out quite often. The service was impeccable. AND we had the best seat in the house! It was like something you only see on the Food Network or Cooking Channel. We... More

We came here with friends to kick off our weekend in Baltimore, and like always, Roy's sent us away happy and content! Make sure you visit the bar first for Aloha Hour, and I recommend the Hawaii Martini! But several of the cocktails are great, and they don't skimp on the alcohol! As for food, I've never had anything I... More

My wife and I tend to go here for any celebration as the food and service are always top notch. Plates look a bit skimpy at first, but I always leave full. Only complaint is their limited beer (i.e. IPA) selection. Otherwise, this is one of the better placed to eat in downtown Baltimore. Highly recommend.

We ate at the counter overlooking the kitchen, which is always entertaining. Service was a tad slow, considering the restaurant was about 50% capacity at dinner time. The Sangria was excellent, as were the salads. The salmon was cooked to perfection and staff was accommodating to sub out one veggie for another.
