Had a great time. Aloha hour was fantastic and the meal was perfectly executed. I'll be returning to Roy's the next time I'm in Tampa!

I came for dinner, alone on a business trip, early in the evening. The service was excellent and the food -- I had a vegetarian 'sushi' appetizer and tofu 'steak' -- was delicious and very nicely done. I will enjoy coming again.

A coupon from Amex got me in there. It was for $25. This got an average rating from me because of the wonderful bartender. Otherwise I would have said poor. First off, I paid $19 for 2 well drinks. I kinda expected that in a place with valet parking. I also expected the $42 for the 12 oz ribeye but... More

Came here for my birthday. I had the basic garden salad and it was just like buying prepacked lettuce with a small amount of dressing. I really didn't enjoy it. We also had lobster sushi which was very good. I had the mixed seafood which was lobster, shrimp and one scallop. It was delicious! We also had a ribeye that... More

2nd time in 6 months and the food was different this time than earlier in the year, I'm sure it's based on seasonality. Our server Bianca has a great attitude and is very friendly. The short ribs are excellent, moist and tender. We feel it's a good deal and enjoyed our evening. The company with each other is was so... More

We have dined at Roy's in other cities, so when Travelzoo had a coupon - $59 for a $120 value - we decided to treat ourselves. In the first place, this was not a $120 value. This was a special menu, which we knew when we bought the coupon. However, these items just did not meet the quality that we... More

Tasty food, but not good value for your dollar. Prix fix meals and coupons are not a good deal at this restaurant. Food is extremely over priced especially for quality, flavor and size. Staff was very nice though and restaurant was clean.

We ate on Wednesday the 16th. Rachel was our waitress and she gave great recommendations. It was our first time and it was an amazing experience. We had the lobster potstickers and the spring rolls for an appetizer. The chef made us a special appetizer to try since it was our first time. Then our dinner arrived and we had... More

Normally I ignore reviews that complain a place is too much. A good meal is worth the price in my book (take Bern's as an example) This however, just was not worth it. The food was definitely good, above average even. But the prices were just too high for what you got.

Ordered sushi. Was so excited to try this place !! Told the waitress NO CUCUMBER. Both rolls came out with cucumber. I took an allergy pill, ate 3 pieces, and was so upset, I couldn't finish it. I left the rest of BOTH rolls and didn't take any home. I always take extra sushi home. It was very spicy, which... More
