My wife and I had a great time at Roy's. The service was great, drinks were good and the food was even better. If you have a chance take your wife for a great meal.

Butterfish is my all time favorite fish. Roy's preparation of butterfish ensures that the buttery fish melts in your mouth as you experience multiple subtle flavors. The sushi rolls are great. Lobster Bisque is fun. Lobster, Thai aromatics with a bit of red curry. Our...More

With any dinner atmosphere, food and service combined make the experience either positive or negative. Atmosphere - overall the restaurant was nice. We usually go to Roy's in Rancho Mirage and had only been to this location twice before, no major changes in restaurant style....More
