I was so disappointed in our service tonight. I’ve dined many times at Roy’s and I know that tonight was atypical of my usual experience. We sat for twenty minutes before our order was taken. The waiter did not serve me the drink I ordered; I thought maybe he did not hear me. I was going to bring it to his attention but I could not get his attention. When I received the bill, I realized he did hear me because he charged me for it. He also charged be for 3 coffees, but we were a party of two. He’s helper was very friendly and gave good service. The food was good as well.
We had not been to Roy's Hawaii Kai in awhile, but it did not disappoint. We were planning to have a full meal but were already quite content after starting with the complimentary Edamame and continuing with our "First Bite" selections of Sizzling Beef Bulgogi followed with the Crispy Brussel Sprouts & Frisse and a special order of foccacia. The edamame and beef were both mildly spicy and paired well with our Cabernet. The Blackened Ahi is one of my favorites and the pupu size was just right. The Chocolate Souffle is the best way to end the meal. Service was wonderful, not too intrusive, but the staff was very attentive. My guest celebrated a birthday and they remembered with a complimentary dessert and best wishes. Next time we will plan an earlier dinner so we can enjoy the ocean view.
From hostesses to bar to table, just amazing service with sincerity. Quality of food is amazing still , having gone there from the time it first opened years ago. Now back for a visit with my hubby, and we had such a great time and left with very satisfied tummies. Excellent, keep up the great work!
We love this place!! It is consistently on point and Stacey is the best waitress that has ever lived!!!!
They should give her a raise every year because it’s people like her and the bartender Whitney that keep customers like me and my family coming back over and over for decades!!!!
The "real" Roy's does not and did not disappoint. Thank you.
The food was outstanding and prepared and presented with care, including the Kitchen accommodating some of our special requests. Nice window table and unobtrusive noise level provided a very nice dining experience. Roy's Hawaii Kai...Awesome!
Stunning setting at sunset. Food - crispy fried crab cakes, green goddess salad and mahimahi were excellent. Wine list is not kept current. It is about a $40 uber/taxi ride, one way from Waikiki.
Excellent food and service. Quality is very consistent. Server was knowledgeable and attentive but not encroaching.
We asked for 2 bills, one for wine which our son bought for us as a gift. Wine was over charged by $30.00. On the food bill, which we paid, we were charged $37.00 for a dish that we did not order. Waiter said it was probably from the previous patrons at the table. ???? Originally we asked for two separate bills, one for wine and one for food. Had to have our bill changed 3 times before finally being ok. For the type and price of this restaurant, we feel something is wrong . Are they trying to fool the customers? Left a bad taste in our mouth. Will have to think twice about returning or recommending Roy’s.
My husband and I enjoyed our first post-baby date night here while on vacation in Oahu. We tried the Prix Fixe Menu, with the wine pairing, and absolutely loved it! The food was amazing. The service was phenomenal. Thank you!
Awesome dining food was delicious
Try to get here before sunset, the view is fantastic. The food was pretty good and service wasn’t bad.
This was a belated Holiday Dinner with Friends...The Lunch Bunch. We enjoyed the appetizers (Escargot x 2 and a Dragon Roll) although most of us had the pre-fixe menu that included an appetizer. Our waitress was very pleasant and service was excellent...water was filled without asking and she checked on us after each course was served. By the end of the meal, we were all happily stuffed. We all agreed that this was the right choice for our Belated Christmas Dinner.
Thank you for an memorable night~
Roy's Hawaii Kai is an upscale restaurant with a lovely setting and attentive, friendly service. Loved being able to see the cooks working in the kitchen and the beautiful creations being put on the counter ready for table delivery. The food and food presentation were excellent. The only disappointing aspect of our meal was the cocktails; they were served in beer pint glasses and seemed on the watery side. The Roy's wine by the glass (chardonnay, cabernet, and pinot grigio) were all excellent.
My husband and I have been celebrating our Wedding Anniversary’s, Valentine’s, Birthday’s and friends visiting Oahu at Roy’s Hawaii Kai since we moved here, full time, 15 years ago. Easy time we eat here it’s the best meal we have ever had. The wait staff are very professional and kind...Mahalo, Stacey!🌺
Have been coming here for years from Malibu, Ca. This is the original never fails to amaze
me. Insane food, incredible service, amazing staff. These people care about their clients!
Great food as always, great service as well. Would recommend for date night with your significant other.
Delicious. Delicious. Delicious.
We enjoyed the prize fixe meal with the wine flight. Good value, nice wines and good food
Amazing service!! From the moment we walked in to when we left 5 star service and the food was amazing.
Terrible service, waited so long to get first drink. We had to grab someone to take order. Too dark to even see own food, could not enjoy at all.
Great food, great service, great times, thank you!
Its expensive for what you get. I thought the service was rushed and we have lived around the world. Our busboy Noah was excellent though.
The butterfish, as usual, was perfection on a plate. Roy's is our go-to for celebrating anything, (and sometimes we will make up excuses to go!), and the service and food are always amazing. Of all the Roy's locations, this is our favorite.
Dining at Roy's is special in many ways - quality cuisine, elegant local vibe, easy parking away from the high rises of Waikiki or downtown. Roy's maintains a longstanding tradition of island-based quality without being stuffy. Wine is a bit pricey by the glass. Desserts too good to skip.
Butterfish was way too rich. Gave me a stomach ache for 36 hrs. Green goddess salad with bacon was bitter and had litteraly one pice of bacon the size of your smallest fingernail.
The food and service was excellent as always! We went their for our 26 wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed!
Absolutely loved the entire experience at this restaurant. From the moment you walk in you feel like the staff value your presence. The service was remarkable, the staff was very friendly and helpful when deciding on a dinner choice. The entire experience deserves the five star rating.
Had a wonderful Valentine's day dinner with my wife. The food was great and wonderfully prepared, our waiter (Riley) was superb, and the live music being played was enjoyable.
Great food! Great service! Wish the live music stayed past 9. Also there was a really drunk guy who kinda messed up the vibe but when he left it was all good
The better fish appetizer is great, but the steak was a bit over cook.
We came to celebrate valentines on 2/13.
One word- “Perfection “
Diane and Lowell
Roy's consistently knocks it out of the park! The service team was exceptional and seamless. The butterfish is always a winner.
Reception and hostess was very welcoming. Great sunset scenery. Open kitchen was interesting to peek and watch preparations. Server was polite and gave good choice selections, however she rattled the specials off too fast. Food came out in decent time and was delicious! Iced tea was an epic fail. Looked and tasted like water with a few drops of tea. After two tries, switched to a different beverage. Server did not acknowledge or apologize for the fact that we stated iced tea was terrible and the switch to a different beverage. Acknowledgement of our special occasion was like an afterthought. Was not impressed by this location. Ko Olina location atmosphere, service and food is more preferable.
Not worth the cost
Very enjoyable dining experience.
Good variety of menu choices; everything prepared well.
Lovely ambiance, professional service.
Relaxed and welcoming.
My wife and I went for our 41st anniversary. The dinner was very good. Our server Leslie was very gracious and gave us excellent service. We had reservations for 6:45 and it was pretty busy and noisy.
We had to return our steak because of the temperature.. We ordered rare plus and got medium.
The Original Roy's met our expectations for my dad's 64th birthday celebration! The food, table, and ambiance was excellent. They had a nice wine selevrion. Our server was very pleasant & knowledgeable. He could have been a little more personable but that didn't negatively affect our experience. We still liked him!
With three locations on Oahu (Hawaii Kai, downtown Honolulu, and Ko Olina), Roy's is one of my favorite "go-to" restaurants when I'm in Hawaii. The food is outstanding and their chocolate souffles are to-die-for! Their fixed-price menu is always a good deal and their short ribs are outstanding!
