“Not a credit to the Roy's chain, average among Newport beach fine dining establishments”
We love going to Roy's in Pebble Beach and in Hawaii. So we were looking forward to trying this one while on vacation in Newport Beach. We asked for a quiet table and were placed in a back corner. Our table was flanked by art with some issues: On one side, the "canvas" was peeling up from its backing, despite the duct tape at its corner. On the other wall were two paintings of palm trees, one of which had been knocked crooked, leaving multiple scratches in the wall.
With regard to ambiance generally, however, the entire restaurant felt enclosed and dark -- not tropical and airy. While there we noticed some outdoor tables. I'd recommend asking for one of them.
Our food was good, not great. Service was only okay. At least when the coffee they served was cold, they brought us more and took it off our bill.
In all, we enjoyed our outing to Roy's, but we won't be going back.
