We have eaten at various Roy's over time but we were disappointed in parts of the dinner last night. My husband enjoyed the poke but it wasn't as flavorful as he had hoped it would be. He absolutely loved the scallop entree he ordered. I enjoyed tempura vegetables but the short ribs were dry and lacked flavor. This is a... More

We go to Roy's a few times a year. We love the butterfish and the tuna. Try their Aloha hour. For their sliders and seasonal martinis. Davíd is a super waiter! You won't go wrong with his recommendations!

A great meal, friendly service, fresh fish. Not for this on a budget, but quality comes with a cost. Fish portion very small. If you are a big eater u might leave hungry.

First is Le Vallauris of Palm Springs. And then Roy's of Rancho Mirage. So creatively interesting with the given of the best purveyed fish hereabouts. I ordered butter fish recently with a terrific Bibb salad. As we were a party of six it proved a good idea to order two large hors d'œuvres platters which brought various fish and short... More

For a number of reasons, mostly that we wanted to watch the second US President debate we used their Take Out service. It was good, almost as good as their normal service. We would recommend their take out service.

Sign up online for their email specials. Gift cards are available at Coscto. At the time we visited, Roy's had a filet mignon and lobster special. We also ordered their signature dessert, Roy's Melting Hot Chocolate Souffle.Time needed to prepare dessert so let them know in advance that you wish to order it.

We go to the bar in this restaurant during their happy hour for an excellent deal on bar appetizers. Their ribs and their sliders are delicious and very reasonably priced. Drinks are also reasonable and service is quick and friendly. The restaurant itself is excellent but a bit on the pricey side for my budget.

While happy hour has a limited menu and you can only sit by the bar to order the specials, the atmosphere was nice. We visited on a Friday night/ it was pretty quite since "season" hasn't started. I'm sure the place is busier when all the snowbirds come back. Our waitress Maria was great she had other tables but kept... More

Roy's is a super dining experience. We reserved a table for my wife's birthday on Monday. Everything on this dinner was great. The server, known only a Da David , was a lot of fun and highly knowledge on all menu items. The second visit was exactly the same, even the parking attendant made a super effort tp get the... More
