We were there on the Wednesday before Valentine's day and it was hopping!! There was a Prix Fixe menu that gave a taste of anything that you might wish ~ even available with wine pairing with each course! We loved it all and would recommend this for a nice evening meal!

First, we had to ask a golfer coming off the course where the restaurant was. Next, the three girls at the hostess station seemed disorganized. Then, for how pricy the restaurant is, I thought there should at least be a table cloth--especially when all the wait-staff wore neckties, male and female. And it was so loud I couldn't hear my dinner partner, or most of the wait-staff most of the time. However, the staff was very attentive, and the meals were really, really good. Will I return? Probably not, as it misses enough to be not worth the cost. But there is virtually nothing else in Ko Olina that appeals away from our hotel (Marriott Beach Club)

We walked to Roy's from Aulani. It's about a 10-15 minute walk.
We were seated right away even without reservations. The waiter was amazing.
The food was to die for! I had the honey mustard grilled beef shortrib. It fell apart and just melted in your mouth! The potatoes were amazing too!
My husband had the ribeye. That too melted in your mouth!

We both got dessert. I got the melting chocolate soufflé. This dessert takes 25 minutes to make, so make sure you order if while you're eating your main entree. Our waiter told us this, so he had it in as soon as he delivered the entree.
He got a pineapple upside down cake. Both desserts were amazing!
This was by far the best meal we had while were in Oahu.

I ate here as part of a small wedding and it was really good. The staff was attentive without being overly so.

We walked to this restaurant from Aulani, across the street and to the right, and is located inside the actual private Golf Club Center. When we arrived, with reservations for two, reception was a sliver off of 'nil'. Not welcomed, not offered a seat at the bar. After we were seated, it took the waiter 20 minutes to acknowledge us, even waiting on people seated next to us who arrived after us. Our waiter was older (not discriminating, just a fact - my mother is about the same age and is excellent at what she does, without a paycheck) compared to the more younger, hip, friendly staff - totally disengaged and with an attitude similar to an over-privileged teenager required to do community service. He never once checked on us. Our food arrived almost an hour and half after we ordered it. However delicious with a delectable presentation - you could almost forgive the lack of a participatory waiter, sorta... We did order a drink beforehand - finished it in 20 minutes, all by itself, never asking if we would like an appetizer and did blink at us when we asked for the menu. We asked a different wait staff for water, who happily engaged and was quick! We were never asked for a refill of either our water or drink. Resorting to a held hostage appearance, we asked for the GM. This gentlemen was a gem, which we found so confusing. He immediately took charge, evidently took our waiter behind the shed, and we were handled with kid gloves during the aftermath. The GM comped our entire meal - so I must say, the majority of the staff knows how to accommodate clients and for this we give accolades. Bottom line - upscale atmosphere, excellent food, just avoid the old goat if he is still there!
