We decided to celebrate my birthday at Roy's and boy were we pleased!!! The service, food and ambience were spectacular. We were four in our party. I look forward to our next visit as I've been dreaming of the Ono fish which was my main course!!!

The waiter was great! The restaurant is a little pricy. everything is a la carte. We had the least expensive item on the menu, and it was actually the best choice on the menu. I've been there several times, and I would go back for that particular item on the menu.

We came here from Chicago two years go and went to Roy's during each night of our visit because it was simply wonderful. We returned this year doe our anniversary and Dar, the bartender, actually remembered us. The entire staff was personable and made sure our anniversary celebration was exceptional. The food is excellent and the environment is warm, but... More

After spending $120. for two we left hungry. The Happy Hour is o.k. But don't waste your time or money for dinner. Waiter not friendly, except when bringing the bill, of course playing for the tip.

Went to Roy's for hubby's 40th birthday. They set up the table with a photo frame Wishing him happy birthday. They took pictures which they also framed. They wrote the children's names and his name on the desert plates. The food was amazing. This place makes the best pineapple upside down cake I have ever tasted. Very nice restaurant, slightly...

The Prime Rib is the BEST I have ever had anywhere in the country!!! 3 of us went to their special Fathers' Day Bruch Sun 6/16/2016. All of us enjoyed our selections thru desert. They are not usually open for brunch. Alcohol drinks were made to perfection. The entire experience was delightful. Staff very attentive without hovering. It might be... More

I love Roy's! I have been to the one in San Francisco and now to this one in Rancho Mirage and the quality is the same! Outstanding food, outstanding service and pricey as it should be for this type of dining! The butterfish is to die for!

Their food is so uniquely made. Their food is full of flavor! From their short ribs to their prawns and not to mention their fried calamari! If you want to eat deliciously made hawaiian type cuisine this is the place to come.

This is a very nice location. They have a great bar and the service on our visit was exceptional. To be honest, I was not incredible stoked on the food – I found my seafood platter to be a bit too heavily salted. My wife found her scallops delicious, but so rich she could not finish them. That’s probably just... More
