Roy's Baltimore Ratings and Reviews
Terrible Father's Day brunch. 3 course menu and never received the first course. The second course came out before our drinks. It took over 90 minutes and we were the ONLY people in the restaurant. Our two 7 and 9 year old sons got eggs that were extra brown. $165 without drinks for a family of 5 for overcooked eggs, slow service and missed food course was unacceptable. We will not be going back.
The food is good but a bit pricey especially given the size of my entry. I had the Hawaiian cod (butterfish) and my wife had the fish sampler. My entree was $39 and hers was $40. She received 4 pieces of fish, including the cod. My cod entree was the same size as hers, and quite small. I had a good house salad as a separate appetizer and left hungry
We took friends to this restaurant in order to have a nice conversation and catch up on past events. The food was good and the service was outstanding. Thank you Michael, our server. The problem was the noise level. There was a group celebrating a birthday near by and that totally over shadowed the evening. They were very loud and were never asked to tone it down a bit as others were also trying to enjoy themselves. I think the restaurant could/should have done something about the noise.
• Food was marginally above average for NY or Philly & the check was still $175 for 2 people without wine!
• The hostess, the manager, and the waiter delivered HORRIBLE service. Especially the waiter
• I'll never return here again.
• Did I mention we had the Worst waiter in the history of waiters?
We were in Baltimore for the weekend and just happened to walk by this place. We decided to go for dinner and it was definitely an excellent way to end the weekend. The selections on the menu made it hard to decide what we wanted but I believe everything is probably as delicious as what we chose. The portions were just right so we could enjoy a dessert and that was fabulous as well. And it doesn’t stop there, I can’t say enough about our server. I believe his name was Craig. He was by far the best server we had all weekend and my only regret is that I didn’t take the time to tell the manager. Roy’s has great food, great atmosphere, its in a wonderful location, and if you go I strongly suggest you ask for Craig. He definitely deserves the recognition. When we go back to Baltimore we will visit Roy’s again and I truly hope Craig is working.
We usually love Roy's but this visit was disappointing. The food took a very long time and the portions were ridiculously small. We have celebrated our anniversary here for years and have loved the special touches in the past ( chocolate writing on your dessert plate along with a sparkler, snapshot in an anniversary card). We didn't receive any of that this time. The waitress was very nice but service was slow. We asked her about specials but she said there weren't any.... then we heard a waiter tell the table next to us about the special. I wonder if Roy's is going downhill and that's why I've seen them on Groupon and special offers on Travelzoo. Not sure we will go back.
This was our first visit to Roy's, but it won't be the last. The Szechuan Spiced Pork Ribs and Misoyaki “Butterfish” are so flavorful and delicious -- a must try!! Make sure you save room for dessert. The Kaffir Lime Tart was like Key Lime Pie...but better!
We had a nice birthday dinner. The short ribs were good and so were the mashed potatoes but there was the smallest portion of potatoes . It was more like a garnish than a side. The lobster bisque was good. Two of us had soup and the third person didn't order an appetizer. The soup was brought not by our waiter and it took a very long time to find him to ask for rolls for the one with no food. It was always hard to find him. It is too expensive but the food was good and the service should have been better.
Enjoyed the convenience of valet parking. Really nice evening out. The staff , everyone of them were especially welcoming and very pleasant. The hostess and receptionist were particularly charming. It was good to enjoy the aloha hour and to sit at the bar and watch the performances in the kitchen. Quite a production! The special 5 course dinner was very good. The meats were tender and nicely seasoned. The chocolate mouse dessert was exceptional. We must do this again.
We have dined here before and it has completely gone down hill. The server was poor and the food was tasteless - not the exceptional customer service that I am used to from Roy's. It took 20 minutes to receive our drinks, and that was after the bartender came over to clarify my sake order because the server had not. The food had no taste. The server never asked if we were interested in dessert. Overall, not worth the price. Unfortunately, we won't be back.
Great Dinner! Hostess remembered that I requested a special table for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted by a congratulatory card and pulmeria blossoms on the table. We ordered delicious cocktails, shared the special appetizer for two, and enjoyed seafood entrees and wines by the glass. Although we were tempted, we skipped dessert. Our seafood entrees (scallops and macadamia-crusted mahi mahi) were both superbly prepared. Our waiter, Justin, was friendly and attentive, and paced the dinner expertly. Since the tab came to almost $200 (including tax and tip), Roy's is not for everyday dining. But it's great for special occasions.
Not pleased. The drinks were good. The apps were good then it went downhill from there. Everything was way too salty. It was just very disappointing. The waiter wasn't great. Used to go all the time it used to be so good.very sad
I love this place and we frequent it every year on special occasions. I did have a problem with my entree and the manager could not have been nicer and more responsive in getting me a corrected meal. Clearly they value their customers.
And the chocolate souffle is to die for!!!!
Overall we were very pleased with our dinner and overcame our negative feelings we had from our first visit many years ago. We arrived very early (5:15) on a Friday evening to avoid the crowds and noise. We both ordered seafood -- the seared scallops and the Trio with an add-on of mahi-mahi. All the fish/seafood was well prepared and had flavorful accompaniments. One minor complaint was the still-too-crunchy and difficult to chew brussel sprouts with the scallops. We were too full to order dessert but will try one another time. We had excellent service and did not have to wait terribly long for our entrees. Since we did not order appetizers, having a small gratis item to munch on would have been a nice touch but was not greatly missed. We think that the very high prices are the greatest drawback to Roy's with entrees priced about $10 higher than comparable quality at other restaurants.
we love the food, but this was the second time we've been here while the service was very slow. both times, one hour passed between ordering and arrival of our food. not acceptable for a sunday mother's day brunch or birthday dinner on a weeknight. hope they correct this soon
This is our 3rd time at this location & the whole staff went out of our way to make us feel special as we were celebrating our anniversary! They took care of our parking & surprised us with a very nice dessert! We have been to Roy's at different locations (including the original on Oahu), but, the Baltimore Roy's is all around the best!
The service was great. Drinks were very good. I had the mahi-mahi which was absolutely delicious. My friend ordered the short ribs, when they came they were burnt and she had to send them back. There was no problem with that and the second dinner came out quickly and was very good.
It was a very noisy atmosphere and a little hard to talk at times. There was a group of men at the bar whose voices seemed to carry throughout the restaurant and then when they were seated for dinner right behind us. I don't know if this is the norm for this restaurant to be noisy or not.
Had eaten there before and it was very good but they failed the other night on all levels. Sent my drink back twice, kitchen very slow and waitress had major attitude when asked about it. So noisy I could barely hear the people I was dining with. we waited over 30 minutes for the valet to return our car and when I spoke with the restaurant manager his response was "that's a different company". To top it off while waiting for my car I overheard another party leaving. One gentleman said to the other "didn't you leave a 20% tip? To which he replied "yes, why?" The first gentleman then responded "why were we given attitude when we left?" No idea who that server was but it certainly summed up our night.
