We were Looking got a restaurant and my host persisted in going to Roy's in stead of the nearby sushi bar. 😂. When entering the restaurant it looks amazing. Nice waiters. My meal, a shrimp salad was so disappointing. I bearly ate shrimp. Most of it was bugs bunny green (salad). And the food was over priced. Too expansive. Disappointing.

Visited on a Groupon deal . Was given a special menu because of this so was expecting smaller portions or not much choice but was pleasantly surprised . Had a choice of 3 starters , 4 mains and 2 desserts . I had a vegetable sushi roll to start and the wagyu burger with truffle fries for main and the... More

Large appetizers, very fresh fish. Great sushi and rolls. Steaks cooked to perfection, delicious sides. I had a sampler of 4 different fish, each prepared differently. Very tasty, with great sauces. Superb desserts. Well made martini. Huge wine list.

We loved it so much, we returned the next night too! Everything about our dining experience was top notch - from the prompt attention and friendly service, to the great drinks, delectable dinner and delicious dessert. We started with Hawaiian Martinis which were really good, though stronger than I'm used to. But our server, Suki (she rocks!) brought me some... More

Had a dinner party for six and we were seated promptly but service while polite and helpful was very leisurely. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was busy but delays between courses was very long. Food was also disappointing. The Roy's Trio (samples of three fish entrees) seemed to have been under the heat lamp a little too... More

Sadly long-standing manage, Danno, has been moved on to another Roy's. His unique style of management and genuine interest in all his guests is sadly missed. This was last December and the entire atmosphere had gone sadly downhill. Even the food (Roy's legendary short ribs) had lost the wow factor and service was average and a degree patronising. I have... More

Food was excellent. Ribs were to die for. Dessert excellent. Loved our pre-set menu, but 2 of 12 guests did not get meals on time. Last guest was served as dishes were being cleared. Not acceptable. Wait staff seemed very frustrated. Would recommend for small group.

I was excited to come back to Roys. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and with a fair amount of tables empty they made us wait for 10 mins. This should have been a sign. The waiter came by and said he would be right back and disappeared for 10 more mins and went to the table... More

Reservations at 9:15, were not seated until 9:45. Ordered drinks, cups had smeared lipstick from previous customer. Had to get drinks myself at the bar after 1:30 wait to replace them. Ordered our food, not much selection. Twice had to change the orders because they ran out of our selected items because we "came in too late", mind you we... More

We visited Roy's for Valentines Day dinner and it was the perfect setting. We had made reservations (strongly recommended) for 6:15pm - one of the only 2 time slots left after making reservations around mid-afternoon. I'm sure if you made reservations more in advance, you'd probably get a time slot between 7pm and 8pm, but after this visit I prefer... More
