My wife and I were staying at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge for the week of Valentine's day and frequented the happy hour every night. $6 Roy's appetizers and drinks from 4pm to 6pm can't be beat. Sit inside our outside at the fire pit and listen to music on the weekends or just enjoy the tropical gardens of the Marriott pools.
Our waiter was excellent and funny enough was a Boston Celtic's fan (we're from Boston) as he indicated that he played basketball and enjoyed watching the Celtic's players like Garnet and Rhondo. He was always pleasant and never too pushy. We also met a visiting GM Josh (from San Diego) who has just started that day and felt very welcomed and appreciated.
Dinner was excellent as usual the night we dined in the restaurant. Great timing and food was spot-on for flavor and temperature. The only thing that was different than our other Roy's visits was that we weren't offered "special" tasting samples from the Chef. It seemed that every other Roy's we visit while travelling we're always offered a little something extra to taste and sample. This wasn't the case even though our reservation indicated we were there for Valentine's day (the following day) which is also our anniversary. No big deal, but out of character for a Roy's. However, they did send over a nicely decorated anniversary dessert and signed card which is very characteristic of Roy's.
Highly recommended restaurant. Start at 4pm with some appetizers and drinks, then move into the dining room for an excellent meal to finish up.
