I guess we saved the best for last! Visited The Fish Market and Buon Appetito previously. Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion was great! Butterfish was perfectly prepared. Lobster bisque and miso soups were delightful! We would go again, but trip is over!

Had a smallish business dinner here with about 10 people. Service was great with some pre-ordered shared appetizer plates and desserts, then we each ordered our own main course. Food was well prepared and great service.

Celebrated a special occasion at Roy's and our waiter made the whole evening special. I'd for sure eat there again. My scallops dinner was delicious. And they surprised us with a special dessert. Memorable evening - Thank you Roy's!!

Food was good. Nothing outstanding. Service was ok. Could have been better. No one went out of you way for you. A little disappointed

The chocolate souffle is a must. I had my first one 10 years ago and it is still perfect. Cocktails are great. Signature one in copper pineapple is the best. Pretty crowded. Outside sitting - make a reservation!
