Roy's Baltimore Ratings and Reviews
In general we were disappointed by our e ...
In general we were disappointed by our experience at Roy's. We went there to celebrate my birthday which happened to fall on a Monday during restaurant week. When we were seated there was a nice card on the table and some flower petals; naturally we thought we were in for a special night of celebrating. That is where things took a turn...
We were obviously given a food runner for our server as they were short staffed; you could clearly make the distinction as all the servers where wearing tan shirts and our server was wearing all black as were all the food runners. He was unfamiliar with menu, service and general customer service. It is important to note that the young man was very nice and friendly, but clearly unprepared to be put on the front lines.
After taking our drink orders and us placing an order for sushi we then waiting almost fifteen minutes before placing our main order. It also felt very odd that we were ordering off of a "Fall Pre Fix" menu (some of us decided not to order from the restaurant week menu) inside the menu in January; I questioned if we had the correct menus and was told they have just never updated their menu. As he was taking our food order the sushi arrived which made for an awkward exchange of menu, plates, etc.
As soon as we took the last bite someone was there to clear the plates even though the table had not finished their course. In one instance all of our sushi plates and chopsticks were cleared and there was still a piece of sushi on the table which had to be eaten with a fork over a napkin. This happened at the end of our main course as well.
The food was very good. I enjoyed the short ribs which were fork tender. The matcha shrimp were also excellent.
After the card on the table on the table there was no further mention of our birthday celebration. The card was a photo frame and a picture was never offered. We ordered dessert and again nothing....
Bottom line is we were disappointed.

Just needed to get out after a rainy week - We are fans of Roy's Place and it was a reasonable drive into Baltimore. It was during the "Bunch" time slot, and I was glad to see a few options that didn't fall into the typical bunch fare. Only suggestion I have, is there weren't many people at the time we came and the music could have been much "softer" for my taste.

Dinner with friends was delicious. Service was wonderful and everyone was very nice. The steak and ribs were delicious, the two seafood dinners were good but not anything special. Disappointed in the Mac and Cheese side, sounded better than it tasted. Great wine list. We would recommend and return.

Roy's was a wonderful dining experience with top notch staff. The food was outstanding, as the braised beef just melted in your mouth. Sharon the manager shared my sister's birthday experience and it made it all the more fun. Thank you Roy's.

I used to lov Roy's and have not been there in a couple years. I found the cocktails watered down and the food not as tasty or as special as I remembered. Desserts were great though. I was really disappointed and would not go back due to low value for money.
So my experience with Roys was a bit dif ...
So my experience with Roys was a bit different mainly because we went on New Year's Eve. I didn't realize that there would be a prefixed menu, so our choices were very limited. We chose from maybe 3-4 appetizer choices, 3 choices of a soup or salad, and maybe about 6 entrees that included fish, chicken, steak, shrimp. My husband is allergic to seafood, so when I looked at the menu prior to booking, the regular menu gave more options. So it was a little disappointing to be so limited. The food was pretty good, but not fulfilling as the portions were small.
Overall I had a nice time. I would prob try Roys on a regular night with a full menu.

We are fans of Roy's. Have been to his restaurants in Hawaii, Las Vegas. Excited to try this one, since we happened to be in the area.
Very attractive place. Wait staff was attentive. My Salmon was overlooked and dry! This has never happened😂😂 chicken egg rolls were yummy. Salad was tasty. My DH enjoyed his short ribs pineapple upside down cake was delicious he said.
Learned from our waiter this restaurant is under new management. Roy has sold most of his restaurants. maybe this will hit the news.

Has been my favorite restaurant for several years, but was off this visit when we took 9 people there to celebrate a milestone birthday for one of the guests.
No edamame, lighting was down much lower than normal (maybe it was nap time?) almost to the point of not being able to see the menu. Special occasion but their digital camera was broken.
With a party of 9 we had many different things from the menu, including a canoe for nine to sample the unique offerings. Everyone liked their meal, when my prior personal experience has been that people usually RAVE over their meals.
Food was good - but seemed to lack the right out of the kitchen hot despite it being a slow night.
This has been a fantastic restaurant, and I do hope that the experience just happened to be a one time lackluster event. We did have several people that had never been there before, and I don't think they will be racing back there for their next meal.
Overall an enjoyable evening with good f ...
Overall an enjoyable evening with good food like we have come to expect at Roy's. One criticism is that you evidently now have to ask for the Edamame to be brought to the table. Seriously? That's kind of what Roy's is known for! This needs to go back to the way it was!

18th birthday celebration. Roys provided a nice card for our son. Initially they seated our 4some next to an extremely noisy bunch of cackling hens. We asked to move. We could still hear the commotion on the other side of the room. Wagyu NY strip was excellent, sushi very good, Rib Eye tasted like saw dust, Roys trio was lousy, shrimp teppanyaki was good. Very very expensive for sub par food in an extremely noisy room. Delia our server was wonderful. Probably will not go back as it is not a good value. I'll stick with Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris , or Prime Rib.

Roy's is an upscale, fine dining spot with great food and excellent service. The bar scene was full and boisterous as we passed it going to the adjacent dining room. Half the dining room was filled, and loud conversation and laughter carried overwhelmingly over the section barriers making conversation a bit difficult. Service was outstanding, professional, courteous and not intrusive. Our dinner selections were great, even though from 4-course special deal menu. Otherwise it would be pricey.

ROYS HAS NOT BEEN THE SAME SINCE WHEN IT FIRST OPENED. THE FOOD WAS ONCE SPECTACULAR BUT FOR THE PAST FEW EYARS, HAS NEVER REBOUNDED. I DONT KNOW IF THEY CHANGE CHEFS OR SOME OTHER INCONSISTENT VALUE BUT ROYS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME IT ONCE OTHER. I GO ONLY BECAUSE MY SPOUSE ENJOYS ONE PARTICULAR PLATE AND DESSERT.

We had bought a value deal on line for $59.99 for 2 at Roys, but the deal was not specific that you could only order from a very selected menu. My husband and I are not particularly limited to what we like, but the choices were few. The food was very tasty with a variety of flavors. The portions were on the smaller side, but we still had plenty to eat. I would have preferred at least 2 choices for salad and dessert, but again we were satisfied with the only option available. Our waitress was attentive and efficient. Overall Roys was very good.

We went for the Thanksgiving prix fixe meal. Very good. Teriyaki turkey breast, moist, tender and tasty. The sides were semi-tradotional and well-prepared.
Roy's is dependably good. The wine list is a little pricey, but the house wines are decent and not outragrous. The service is always good, and valet parking makes it better.

The food was just average. I was expecting a bit more, since they are in the heart of the East Harbor. I shrimp dish my husband had was salty. I'm glad we did the 2 for $59.00 from Travel Zoo, so I wasn't too upset over the price.

Love the food here. I wish the lunch menu would include more items even from the bar menu. Please update the carpet, replace burnt out lightbulb and spruce the place up a bit. I love the food here but the location is starting to look dated/shabby.

This was a lunch in celebration of a milestone birthday. We had not been there for several years and, while we enjoyed ourselves, it did not meet our expectations based on prior experience. My own food and that of some other guests was quite good. Others reported that it was mediocre. Also, the service couldn't have been more pleasant but it was quite slow and they were not able to provide a proper utensil for one of the deserts. Odd to say the least. Still and all, I would give it another try perhaps not for brunch.
