Vacationing in Orlando with four kids and we scheduled one night out alone. After a fair amount of research, we decided to try Roy's.
Initially greeted by complimentary valet parking, our hostess was very pleasant. Very short wait after we arrived for our 8 pm reservation.
Our waiter was Jason G and he was very good. We adore our red wine and make a homemade sangria that I love. No restaurant has come close to what I have become used to. When I saw it on the cocktail menu, I questioned Jason about it. He talked us out of our comfort zone and suggested a white sangria, which I have never tried. I have to say it was VERY good and the second one was the same.
We opted out of the apps tonight and went straight to the entrees. I ordered crusted pan fried snapper and my GF ordered short braised beef. Presentation was very good. The beef was melt in your mouth yummy and was served on a bed of mashed with perfectly done al dente baby carrots. Definitely a winner! The snapper was served with a baby bok choy, fried okra, and a roasted garlic clove. The fish was on a well paired sauce which was mildly spicy. Definitely a good dish, but would try something else next time. Solid 8/10 meal.
We don't normally order dessert but when we do, we love our chocolate. Roy's has two signature dessert dishes, a chocolate soufflé, and a pineapple upside down cake. Once again, we opted to leave our comfort zone and go for the pineapple dessert. Being a Hawaiian restaurant, it just seemed like the right thing to do. We were not disappointed! The cake was super moist and served with a mild rum sauce and awesome vanilla bean ice cream. Order this if you go!
All in all, a fantastic experience! If I had one complaint, it would be the noise level, which was quite high.....but we didn't mind. Not a great place for a quiet dinner, though.
I should add that Jason was fantastic making recommendations and suggestions off the menu. Great waiter and great restaurant! Go now!
