Roy's Bonita Springs Ratings and Reviews
Roy's never disappoints! We've been to different locations, all with outstanding food, vibrant feel, trendy decor, great service, fun cocktails. The food and cocktails were amazing: tempura vegetables, trio of fish, Mahi mahi (even the vegetables and potatoes were delicious!), mixed berry cobbler (made to order), special summer sangria and prosecco cocktail. Always love finding a Roy's on a vacation. Naples was lovely and this restaurant is always worth the trip!
Food was excellent ! Unfortunately we were not treated in the usual Roy's friendly " Ohana" way. The manager never stopped by our table. Although celebrating a special occasion, we had to ask for the usual photo of our group. Our 1st waiter was not at all upbeat or friendly. We dined here twice within 48 hrs. and our 2nd waiter, Michael, was much friendlier. We will have to consider the longer drive to Roy's Orlando since the Roy's Naples has closed. Roy's is our very favorite restaurant - we've been to every Hawaii location- and we want the experience to match the long ( 2 hour)drive!
My wife and I went with our best friends for a celebratory dinner. We ordered 3 different fish dishes and the braised beef short ribs as well as the lobster pot stickers. The food was awesome, as good as any other restaurant in the fort myers/Naples area. Service was perfect and the wine list was great as well. Will definitely return.
We used to frequent Roy's Bayfront in Naples(for cooking classes, and dinners, as we'll as when Roy himself visited) before it closed; they were progressively declining in food prep and quality, then finally closed.
Tried Bonita TWICE to be fair. Both times were disappointed by the food. The Lakanilau Roll's "Wagu beef" was not "melt in your mouth tender"(as it SHOULD BE) but chewy. Three of us ordered the grilled Rib Eye; it ALSO was chewy for not just 1, or 2, BUT ALL THREE of us. The fourth person got the Butterfish; the cod was a thin sliver atop all the "sides"; the triangular rice patty made the cod look dwarfed in comparison.
We all ordered the chocolate melt cake; AGAIN... NOT the old quality that USED to be. It USED to oooze out rich dark chocolate, but the minimal ooze stayed within the split cake.
These downward trend in their food does not go undetected. I wonder how long before Bonita's Roy closes their doors???
Our waiter was very helpful and attentive, However neither the appetizers, salads or meals came to the table at the same time. If bread is only by request we should have been informed. The meals were fine but not more, so at over $200 per couple it was just ok.
Our experience on this visit to Roy's was decidedly average. The happy hour food, drinks, and bar service was great, but our dining service and food were best described as "meh". Our server Ricky was efficient, but robotic. The tuna poke starter was great; our entrees were less so. To start, they were out of the snapper I originally ordered, so I switched to a shrimp carbonara. The non-traditional preparation was delicious, but the shrimp were rubbery and overdone. My husband had the opposite problem: his scallops were cooked well but accompanied by undercooked Brussels sprouts and bland everything else. The highlight of the meal: key lime pie cake with brûlée topping and some fantastic Mai Tais. Next time, we'll stick to happy hour at the bar, which certainly offered more happiness than the dining room.
It was a bad evening for Roy's of Bonita. We ordered the canoe app which was tasty however the temperature was off....everything was warm, not hot. 30 minutes later we were waiting for our entree when the manager came over and apologized for the delay and told us our food was almost ready. 30 minutes after that, the manager visited our table and was shocked that we still did not get our entrees. 10 minutes later, they finally arrived....everything was warm, not hot again. The manager told us that our entire meal was on the house, which was very nice. They served us a nice dessert and coffee. We really liked Roy's of Naples, which is now closed as well as Roy's of Oahu...it is a shame that this location has now failed us twice.
We opted to sit at the bar for dinner as we have always received exceptional service. Sadly that was not the case this time and was sorely disappointed by the bartenders service and over all attitude. Will skip the bar in the future if those two are on duty.
Service was abominable. We were seated at 6:45, my drink had a bug in it, we ordered dinner at 7:15, appetizers took a half hour to serve, dinner wasn't served until 8:15, and we ordered only one dessert and that took a half hour to be served.
It was not a pleasurable experience, and no one came to speak with us about it until we flagged them down. And we kept being told that idiiner was coming.
We have been to Roy's in Hawaii, Monterey & here.
We have always loved it. It is not the same Roy's since they were bought. The service was terrible.
Our food was delicious but our friend's was not edible.
Took so long to have it redone that we just had it boxed to go.
Ask for Josh, the manager. That was the best part of our experience. We had purchased a group-on Prix fixe, 3 course dinner and when we were seated we were handed a regular and prix fixe menu. Since the menu we were handed looked different than what I saw on line, I asked our server who said "Oh yes, I can get you the correct menu or you can order from this menu and not use your groupon". When he brought the "correct menu" he informed us that one of the two deserts were unavailable so we could have the one that was available or any other desert AT A $6 UPCHARGE. When our appetizers were served, the sushi roll came with chopsticks, ginger, wasabi, but no soy sauce. The server couldn't understand why we wanted soy sauce but eventually brought some. He told me my ribs would take a little longer to prepare but when they came, they were cold. When I finally got the server's attention he took them back to redo. By this time the manager, Josh, unsuspectingly came around and asked how everything was. He was appropriately appalled at my account of events and said we could pick any desert at no upcharge since it wasn't our fault they didn't have what was on the menu. He also comped our 2 glasses of wine. When the entrees came out, I had to hunt down some salt and pepper. They brought my rib appetizer out with my entree, so I had them box it up.
On a positive note, the food was as creative as Roy's always is and the ambience was fine. Had it not been for the service problems it would get 4 stars, had it not been for Josh, it would get 1 star.
Excellent in all aspects, from Josh, the manager on down. It is quite clear that management has a comprehensive plan for hospitality from the moment a guest walks in, through the service, preparation, and presentation of the meal. All aspects are well taken care of, and to a level exceeding expectation. Just first class all the way.
The butterfish dish was amazing as was the molten chocolate cake. The salmon dish was a bit plain. Service was warm and inviting. Th open kitchen and high ceilings are not conducive to romantic, quiet conversations. It is a lively place and we had a very nice time.
Server was very attentive. Calimari and chicken spring roll appetizers were delicious. Portions of entrees, scallops and sirloin, were just right. Unfortunately, no room for dessert! A very loud noise from the kitchen area marred an otherwise nice experience.
