“Excellent food, great service!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We came here to celebrate our son's 18th birthday and were not disappointed. We had been here many years ago, but had not been since then. We will definitely come again! We travel to Hawaii every year and the food here brought back a lot of good memories! We had the scallops, sea bass, hake and filet mignon...all were delicious! We also tried the crab pretzels and they were really good too. Valet validated parking for $8 is available, so it is an easy place to go.

“Good Food, Marginal Service”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The food here is excellent and it prices reflect that it believes itself to be an upscale establishment. However the service was marginal and detracts from what should have been a very pleasant experience. The reserved table was not ready when we arrived and the hostess didn't seem at all concerned or solicitous even though it was 25 minutes before we were seated. After that it was ten minutes before anyone came with water or asked us for our order. The only thing that was relatively prompt were the desserts that we ordered in advance. Two hours for dinner after we sat down is a but much for this kind of relatively simple Asian type menu - it's not multi course haut cuisine. The servers seemed new and amateurish so if you want to go try it during the week and maybe the service will be better. Also call for you valet parked car well in advance or stay at your table as you don't need another 20 minutes or so standing around. You have to use valet parking because there is none in the neighborhood.

“Excellente!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

What a great dining experience before I leave Baltimore!! Wow!! I can't find words to describe the food. I dont think there is anything on the menu you wont like. Food was excellent, service was excellent. If yoh happen to go there as for Ashlee Breneman to serve you. She said she was on her first day when she was our server. She did an awesome job than some of the 15 years servers that I know!

“Classy with Great Service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

One block from the inner harbor in the center of town sits Roy's which advertises itself as Hawaiian Fusion. The menu is similar to the menu in Hawaii but with a few differences. A full range of menu items are available with a few selections that are seasonal. Fantastic service! A multi-level parking lot sits next door. Pricey but overall experience was positive. A great place for adults who want a quiet evening with a diverse menu.
