We had dined at Roys on Kauai a few times and have always enjoyed it. This was our first visit to Oahu so we decided to enjoy a meal at Roys as a treat to ourselves. We decided to go with the tasting menus to have a variety of foods. She went with the standard which included the appetizer samples,... More

Roy's has the potential to be a 5 star restaurant. Great location, skilled chef, attentive waiters. For the price (which is a little expensive, even for Waikiki), I expected more. The dining room is overcrowded and loud. By the end of the meal it was difficult to have a conversation. The three course meal with wine pairings was excellent, but... More

Food was fantastic! We enjoyed the mixed entrée and the lobster mac and cheese was divine. Service was lovely including the sommelier that took us through the wine list. It made a special event even more special

Looking at the reviews I was struck by how my experience was so negative when a lot of the reviews are positive. The first impression entering Roy's from the street was really poor. We arrived a touch early and were pointed to a bar and then a waiting area. This was fine except for the welcoming of the staff which... More

Decided to try this restaurant out while walking thru Waikiki. Wonderful service, delicious food. The Sushi was 5 stars, the entree (Kauai Prawns) was 5 stars, and the chocolate souffle had my eyes rolling back, incredible.. If you are a chocolate lover, do not pass up the chocolate souffle! A little pricey but worth every penny, highly recommended.

Our 23rd anniversary dinner, we wanted to go somewhere special. Roy's Waikiki was pretty near to our hotel. We walked over, actually walked pass it and had to double back. We were escorted to our table and had the best dinner of our trip. Our server was Yvonne, and she was great. She didn't rush us, and explained all our... More

The fixed menu was amazing especially the chocolate souffle dessert. Come here hungry, our portions were so large we couldn't finish. The service was great as well.

My husband and I were reluctant to try Roy's since it's a chain, but we are so happy we went. We didn't have a reservation and were told it would be about an hour for a table, so we happily sat at the bar for dinner. The drinks were very good and we shared a beef carpaccio roll, which was... More

Dear Roy's, Each and every time I eat at your establishment I 'go to heaven.' I have been to your restaurants all over the Hawaiian Islands, and even in San Francisco...but I must say that this located is my all time favorite. I think there is something to be said about being surrounded by beat red tourists maybe??? .....NOPE, it... More

Absolutely loved Roy's! The food is always amazing and the service is good. I would have given them an excellent mark except our special occasion was overlooked. We still enjoyed ourselves. Sitting on the deck is an added delight.

Thank Melody B
