We typically shy away from corporate chain restaurants, including fancy ones like Roy's. But we received in the mail a $25 coupon which prompted us to give Roy's a try. We went with an open mind & hoped for the best. The result was less than stellar. We shared the lobster roll appetizer. A little skimpy on lobster, the dish tasted mostly of dressing and the raw onion topping. The Hawaiin bread, lightly toasted, was soft & tasty. Next, we had the fish trio. We liked the butter fish best, sauce was delish. The macadamia crusted mahi mahi was our least favorite, it tasted over-salted and flat. The salmon was okay. We also ordered the osso bucco. I appreciated the Asian treatment of this classic Italian dish, but the meat was overcooked and dry. I liked the congee, it was delicately flavored and pleasant. The big disappointment was the chocolate souffle dessert. It arrived dry and lukewarm. It tasted no better than Trader Joe's chocolate molten lava frozen dessert (which we love). It was a far cry from the chocolate molten cake at Cafe Claude, an excellent French bistro in SF. Now that's a dessert worth talking about! For 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, 2 wine, 1 soda, and 1 coffee, the bill came out to $125. At these prices, customers have the right to expect much better food.
