Roy's Baltimore Ratings and Reviews
1 out of 4 dishes was excellent [sushi rolls was best of order). Pork chop was cooked well but lacked appreciable taste. Sides were excellent for this dish. Rockfish was cooked well but nothing special. Shrimp carbonara pasta was not flavorful, especially since was to have lobster base cream sauce.
Price points high for end product.
Popped in for the first time last night for a late dinner and I was impressed by the food!! My salmon was perfect but the truffle bacon Mac and Cheese really made the experience! It was sooooooooo good. Wasn't impressed by having to wait so long for acknowledgement that we opted to sit at the bar!
Roy's has always been a favorite of ours to celebrate special events, but this time was the first disappointing time we have had. According to our waitress management has changed hands, and you could certainly tell, and not for the better. The complementary edamame, instead of bread, is no more. The service was extremely slow and many items that we had ordered just never arrived. And most disappointing of all is that the blackened ahi tuna has always been my favorite dish and exceptional, and just was not very tasty this visit. Our waitress did a good job of trying to correct the situation as gave us gift cards to come back and took my son's dish off the bill as a birthday gift, as she knew that this dinner was not what we were used to.
Honestly with so many other restaurants to visit in Baltimore I am not sure that the gift cards will be used, as just was so very disappointed.
Roy's was absolutely delicious and perfect for a nice birthday lunch! Some of the dishes were a not pricey for the quantity of food, but overall you're not going to break the bank. They definitely have some very interesting band worthwhile fusion styles. If highly recommend checking this place out!
The ambiance of Roy's is nice for a special occasion. One person loved the macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi. Two others had the trio and found the Misoyaki butterfish to be too rich and salty; at least there were other options on the plate. Everyone loved their desserts. One person ordered a Polynesian Passion drink and said it was good. The Bailey's/Rum/Coffee after dinner drink was very strong and it didn't seem to have coffee at all. The birthday person's dessert was "on the house" and a photo of the party was provided for the birthday person only.
Sharon, my wife and I, invited her father to Roy's on March 26th, for his birthday.
I ordered the three fish dinner, but the waitress suggested that I upgrade to their four fish dinner. This was a great suggestion. My dinner was fantastic. I also shared sushi with our guests. Normally, her dad is difficult to please when it comes to food. His reaction to Roy's was unusual. He raved about his dinner.
The waiters and waitresses at Roy's always provided good service. The waitress, that we were lucky to have that evening, goes by the name Mo. She provided us with great service. Also, she had a very nice voice, in her rendition of 'happy birthday'. You can tell that Mo is a people person. I plan on requesting to be seated at Mo's table, on our future visits to Roy's.
Excellent food but not nearly enough staff to handle clientele.
We had a nice table in the main section of the restaurant but there was only ONE server per 10-12 tables including one very large table. We arrived early but guests that arrived later were waiting 15-20 minutes for their orders or food. It was embarrassing to watch.
Big fail by management not too have nearly enough staff to provide adequate service levels in a busy Thursday evening.
What a great meal! Food was great. Server was fun and made us laugh.
Not a quick dinner but it was nice to sit back and enjoy the group we went with. It was pretty expensive so I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a cheap date.
Splurge a little and have some fun! Yum!
We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time which is good enough for me on a busy Saturday night. Service was excellent and food was awesome. I'd go back anytime. The lobster potstickers were my favorite of the 3 apps we tried. The shellfish sampler is easily shareable.
We have been going to Roy's for years and Saturday was the first time that we have been disappointed.
The service was slow and somewhat inattentive and the portions noticeably smaller.
I understand the management has changed.
I hope this is not a trend but we noticed that most the their staff had turned over.
I thought the service was good, not great. The server was quite attentive, and kept interrupting out conversations without waiting for us to acknowledge her which I considered rude.
The food was quite good.
We like the Roys on the islands much better. Better ambience, more relaxed service.
I was very disappointed in my visit to Roy's. The restaurant was very loud and noisy. The food is extremely over priced. Our waitress was terrible. We had to get up from our table and ask the hostess for a fork. In addition, I had to asked three times for an additional glass of ice tea. It seemed like after we placed the order for our entrée, our waitress disappeared until it was time to pay the bill. The ladies room was disgusting. Toilets did not work, paper towels laying all over the floor. This is my first and last visit to this restaurant.
Overall ~ Disappointed - The food was good.. Sushi was great, I had the Rockfish and thought it was OK my husband liked it more than I. Noise level was horrible, we went with friends and could barely hear one another to have a conversation. Service was not the greatest, at one point the server apologized for not being attentive said she had a big party. Then when the check came -- WOWZER -- $330 for 4 people and only 5 drinks. I would not mind paying this if the food and overall experience had been outstanding. Nothing spectacular here for a lot of $$.
I'd read some good reviews and wanted to try a new place that had both steak and seafood, so I settled on Roy's. It's in a very busy area, which might be a turn off for some, but we often dine downtown and the valet service was convenient and fairly quick. We often skip eating out for Valentine's Day because of the crowds, but we didn't face a long wait and it was kind of sweet to see all of the other couples having a day out together. The Valentine's menu was great, with lots of good options. I was actually surprised at the price - I feel like the amount and quality of the food we got made this almost a bargain, as far as fine dining restaurants go. He got the lobster potstickers, I got the spicy tuna roll, we both got lobster bisque and ribeye, he got the lime dessert and I got the red velvet cake, all delicious. The place was busy and crowded, as expected, but the service was on point, with friendly, helpful and quick staff. Unfortunately, I broke a tealight on my way out, and the woman who came to pick up the pieces was so sweet, it helped me feel slightly less embarrassed haha. We were given a $20 gift card for our next visit, and we will DEFINITELY be back. My husband and I were both pleased, and while I think it's probably not the most "romantic" of places, I think it's good for either a date night or a meal with a group.
Go to Roy's when in Baltimore for a good and peaceful meal. This time was a little disappointing. Ordered entrée only to be told 10 minutes later it had sold out. Two couples were very intoxicated and very, very loud at a nearby table; management did nothing about it. Will give them another try; will be going to Roy's at Waikiki in the spring.
