We had THE WORST night last night at Roy's Baltimore. First of all, we had a dinner reservation at 7:30PM and had to wait over TWO hours to finally be seated. I had called the restaurant beforehand the day before and day of our dinner time and asked if they could do something special for a birthday, even if I... More

Had a really enjoyable business dinner here. The food was good - Asian fusion style, which was sometimes a bit odd sounding on the menu, but all the dishes we had were very good. Service was excellent; our server really knew the menu and made some great choices for us and was also a lot of fun. Good atmosphere too... More

I visit Baltimore twice a year. This is my favorite restaurant there in the Harbor East. I love being able to go there each visit, as we do not have a Roy's in Atlanta (bummer). They take reservations (recommended) - provide great service - and really good food. My favorite dish is the Roy's Trio. For dessert - of course... More

My husband and I were delighted with the entrees of butterfish and braised short rib. Each entree and accompanying sides melded perfectly together. Service was excellent. We arrived early (6:00 pm); by the time we left it was quite loud. We will definitely return to Roy's and will recommend the restaurant to others. Kudos Roy's.

First time at Roy's with wifey for an early dinner. "Fusion" is a key descriptor of the food here. Interesting unique combinations are the specialty. I had the Alaska "Butterfish" special (see photo) which comes with rice and a few veggies. This butterfish is also known as black cod or more accurately - sablefish. Its among the most sustainably harvested... More

Not only is the food exceptional here. You can get everything from sushi, to the best short ribs, to the tasty-ist fish dishes you can't imagine yourself. BUT, the service is rock-star quality here!! You literally feel very welcome from the minute you enter the restaurant to your drink order, all the way thru dessert. They are attentive and notice... More

My wife and I have been to this Roy's several time and it never disappoints. We went last night and it was another great experience. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. I had the seared ahi tuna and my wife had the cod and scallops. Both were cooked perfectly. We also had the Mac and cheese with... More
