We enjoyed ourselves the moment we walked through the door. A wonderful hostess sat us; the manager was courteous throughout our visit; the bartender was amazing! The appetizers in the bar were delicious; the staff decorated our table for our special dinner...just going that extra bit made our dinner so much more special. Our main dishes were both superb.

Great food and drinks for Happy Hour, my personal fave is the burrata which comes with roasted tomatoes, arugula and toasted bread. A must to wash it down is the blueberry lemon drop.

My family took me here on my birthday two nights ago. The wait was minimal. The hostess, waitress, everyone who was in contact with us did an excellent job. We had a set menu since we bought it theough Travelzoo. The salad, appetizer, dinner menu, and the dessert were all great. The water glass kept being refilled and dirty dishes... More

My wife and I were visiting from southeast Florida where we unfortunately don't have a Roy's close by. We've been to the Orlando and Naples locations and enjoyed the food so we decided to have dinner here. We arrived at 4:30 (the kitchen wasn't quite ready) and while we waited for our table we went in to have a drink... More

Had not been to Roy's in many years and was very pleased with this location. We had reservations for 7pm on a Friday night and were taken in within minutes of arriving. The wait staff was very good. They were very knowledgeable about the menu items and how items are prepared. The water glasses were kept filled & we were... More

We stopped at Roy's around 1:30 and had a wonderful lunch. The waygu burger was a complete meal - terrific flavor and the french fries were some of the best I've ever had. It's located right in Fashion Island with easy access from all the hotels and major thoroughfares. Strongly suggest having the lunch

Dined with a group of 50. Service was a little slow but acceptable for a large group. We had a fixed menu of limited items. Beef, salmon, or chicken. The wedge salad was fresh but average in quality and creativity. The salmon presentation was basic. The bed of vegetables was cucumber and carrots but limited. The salmon was undercooked. The...
