“Great cocktails at the bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We did not eat at Roy's however we found the bar to be a very nice place to hang out for a superb drink for a while.

The service at the bar was very professional. The drinks were superb. The location is good. It's all pretty fancy and nice.

I could recommend Roy's bar for a very pleasant tipple!

“Fabulous evening at Roy's to Celebrate on Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Roy's provided us with a great evening to celebrate a 30th birthday and engagement for a party of 8! Service was outstanding including special celebratory desserts. The food was delicious from beginning to end! I don't think you can beat this place on Oahu! The butterfish was raved about by many at the table, sushi is a must order and the chocolate souffle is a do NOT miss!!!! Thanks for a great evening!

“Best of Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Roy's is excellent - from the service to the food everything you would expect. This was a fabulous evening out. The sushi was excellent. The butterfish was butter. The best fish that I have tasted. You can't go wrong with fish at Roy's.
Make sure to save room for dessert. The chocolate soufflé is to die for. Order it before anything else.
It is expensive, but it is Waikiki. If you want to stay on the beach, this is the place to go.

“You can't beat this no matter how much you spend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

What a PLACE! We ate here about 4 years ago on a prior trip, and were floored by the entire experience. No change tonight...a group of 6 adults, 5 different entree's, salads, the works, all TOP NOTCH! And the SERVICE! Can't imagine how it can be better. Quite a team they have assembled at Roys....they all help out and you feel like you have a huge team as your waiting staff. Of course, it's pricey....$$$$ out of $$$$, but we're not complaining! You just need to know that going in, and you'll not regret it. I had the Trio fish sampler (3 types of fish), and ! Each piece was placed with it's specially selected sauce and accompaniment (asparagus, etc, though keep in mind that as the meal is 3 diff types, they are all small portions). Each was fantastic, and at the end I literally wouldn't be able to decide which to get IF I had to choose just one. My wife had the Butterfish and it was perfect...flakey, soft, just melted in your mouth. Another had the seared Ahi plate, and it was incredible. Another had the ribeye steak (not into seafood) and he LOVED it! And to top it off, the pre-order Pineapple upside-down cake with the most amazing scoop of ice cream I've ever had...just a perfect end to a wonderful meal experience. Worth every penny!

“Disappointed after the hype...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was not a bad restaurant but for what it should be versus what it is, it was disappointing. The food was about the same quality as could get in many chain restaurants; my wife's fish was not very flavorful and my entrée was not very memorable. The specialty cocktails were average.

However, the service was impeccable - as were the starters and desserts.
