“Fantastic Easter dinner”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We ate at Roy's on Easter Sunday while we were visiting from out of town. We ate with our two children, ages 13 and 10. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals - our daughters kids meal was great, and everyone's meal was very tasty. The restaurant was very quiet, and service was exceptional.

“appetizers for two”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

I enjoyed the service there we went into the bar at happy hour for the 6 dollar appetizers. We both got skinny drinks. ...mine was a coconut one that was delicious and my daughter got something that she enjoyed as well. They brought out edamames that were seasoned with a spicy seasoning and a peanut soy dipping sauce that was really good! It was on a plate with fried wantons. ..delish. I ordered fish tacos which we both did not like. The fish tasted like chewed up fish in the taco and was inedible. The burger sliders on a a grilled pretzel bun were also very good. Service was super.

“Fish ...... Fast and Furious”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Loved this restaurant; the food was great. Sushi to start followed by Andy with Mahi Mahi and me with tuna. Great wines. To full for dessert. Only gripe - not the place to go if you want to linger over your food.

“coupon brought us back”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We received a coupon by email for twenty five dollars. We were going into Chicago for the weekend and decided to return to one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago.

We were greated by our waiter Jeff who remembered us from eating there a few years ago. Great server! My husband loves the Hawaiian Martin and I love the 1988 Martini. I started off with Lobster Dim Sum and my husband had Mussels. I love the Trio of Salmon, Maui Maui and my favorite thing at Roy's the Misoyaki butterfish!!!! My husband tried the Winter Prix fixe menu of mussels,seared river trout, and Hot Chocolate souffle. We both were very happy with our entrees,
