Roy's Bonita Springs Ratings and Reviews
Atmosphere not as nice as the two other Roy’s we have been to (Baltimore and San Diego). 45 minutes between our appetizers and entrees and not even one visit from our waiter during this time to see if we at least needed drinks (we did) and when we finally were able to ask him about our entrees, the response was “that’s how it is. “ He later apologized. On our way out, the hostess didn’t even look up from her phone to say thanks or good night . What a terrible reflection on management to have such a poorly trained staff.
I've been to Roy's in 5 different locations around the country. I was very disappointed in the serving sizes this trip. I had ahi tuna; there were only 5 or 6 thin slices. I used to get a nice size chunk. My husband had the butter fish which was less than the size of a deck of cards. What happened Roy's??? I doubt we will return given the prices of these items.
Food and waiter outstanding....however, we were seated next to a table of 12 , with 4 loud, terrible out of control children, pass 7:00 pm, I thought I was at Chuckie Cheese, very unacceptable to older people dining alone, enjoying an evening out.
Recommendation: allow children before 6:30pm and seat in area where they are out of the way to make noise, run around the table, try and pull down the drapes.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. We usually love
Roy’s and triednit twice in the last week. The first time, all four of ofnour soufflés were over cooked and the replacements which took another 20 minutes were also overdone and dry. This time We waited for 1 1/4 hours for our entrees and all theee steaks were cooked well but cold
So disappointed as Roy’s is our go to restaurant for special occasions.
We’ve been to this Roy’s many times. Although the food was very good ,the service was not up to standard. When we arrived for our reservation exactly on time, the two hostesses said we had to wait for a table. After standing around for 5 minutes we told one of the hostesses that we would be at the bar and to find us there. After 20 minutes we approached the hostess again and she said she didn’t know where we were and had given our table away. We spoke to the manager who said that the hostesses “were doing the best they can”.
We thought it was mediocre the first time we tried them. Because we had a friend who doesn’t eat meat, but does eat seafood with us, we settled on Roy’s. It was dreadful. Food wasn’t great. Service was horrendous, especially at the end when the place was nearly empty. No cognac list, resulting in multiple trips back and forth to the bar with questions on brand, grade and cost. Get a list please. Never going back and trust me, that will be a major financial loss of affluent frequent diners with a taste for fine wine and cognac.
This visit was on New Years Eve. The menu was limited but very adequate. We had a very good meal, with excellent service. My biggest complaint would be a wait of 25 minutes past our reservation time. I have found that reservations are not reliable during the winter season. I prefer bar seating during the winter.
New Year's Eve. We sat outside. Some confusion from the female that seated us because it was chilly and the only other table outside had the only 2 heaters. She didn't know what to do when I said I needed one and went and got someone else who I had to explain the situation to and he promptly took one of the heaters and put it at our table. Was that so difficult?
Their website was not clear that it was a fixed menu. Due to dietary restrictions for a health condition, I could not eat two courses. The chef WOULD not accommodate me at all. That is surprising for a high end restaurant. We decided to pay for our drinks and go elsewhere. DeRomo's had a full menu and we had a lovely dinner. Too bad Roy's. Advertise better or better yet accommodate guests.
We arrived on time and were shown fairly promptly to a table in the (slightly) quieter area towards the rear of the restaurant. They brought us water, took a drinks order and we were left for over 15 minutes unattended. As we were an 8pm reservation the restaurant was busy but not manic so no excuse. Eventually the diet comes arrived but it took 3 attempts and another 15 minutes before my Chandon split managed to make it to the table. Eventually our order was taken and I asked another waitress to find ours as we would like some Edamame. Had to ask another waitress as purrs was too busy chatting to friends at the bar to come anywhere near us. The other girl brought us the Edamame and after another 10 mins or so a different server brought our started. At no point did our waitress check on us, attend to us or in any way look after us. She did clear our starter plates and help serve the entrees but then disappeared off again and we had to get another waitress to refill the diet cokes and my water. As we finished our entrees she reappeared and asked if everything was OK with the meal!!! Luckily we have been going to Roy’s for many years albeit in Naples until it shut down and only recently to this one so we know the food is excellent. Our waitress should not have been working there. She was clearly disinterested in customers and in serving and could have taken lessons from our waitress at Bravo on New Year’s Eve who was truly excellent. It will be a while before we venture back as we will wait until our desire for the excellent food served there outweighs our memories of the service.
I dine at Roy’s frequently. Unfortunately this time - although we had a reservation, we had to wait a good half hour - or more. It was very chaotic and really no explanation for the delay. I’ll return because the food is very good, but disappointed in the lack of attention to the problem.
We had a wonderful meal. All of the food was prepared fresh, to order. The dishes are unique, flavorful and with beautiful presentation. The server was very polite and knowledgeable about the extensive menu options. For these reasons, I make it a point to come to this fine restaurant every time we visit Bonita Springs.
Very disappointing. Starting with the receptionists (2 of them) with previous reservation, they both look at their computer (monitor) and Wisner to each other and point at the computer for a good 3 to 5 minutes while the 6 of us standing there waiting for them. The service by Mike and his assistants was poor, disorganized and somewhat rushed. We had to ask for the “Edam” 3 times before they brought it. One of us ordered wine which was brought in its glass. Some of the others ordered different drinks. In the meantime, there are 6 empty wine glasses on the table. I had to ask them to remove the empty glasses.
We know that we should order the soufflé with our order for food. When we did, the waiter said “ let me get the drinks, then remind me “ !!!
When the soufflé came, it was over baked.
Based on the food alone, my review would always be five stars at Roy’s. We have eaten there at least ten times and the food is wonderful. Unfortunately, eating there on a holiday, in this case Christmas, is not fun or relaxing. It feels chaotic and the server was so overehelmed, he was literally running back and forth. Usually they have time to chat and recommend dishes. We felt like they had to get the next seating in. I would not hesitate to recommend Roy’s as long as it is not a holiday! and yes, we have eaten there at Easter as well.
We took my 84-year-old mother there for Christmas dinner. She has dementia so we needed to take her somewhere quiet and had some privacy around tables. The waiters were exceptional. Fun, attentive, professional. My 11-year-Old son was with us, too, and he enjoyed the meal, as well. Thank you Roys
Food was very delicious. The server was excellent. Enjoyed the evening but was very disappointed that we had to wait 45 minutes to get a table. I had made a reservation 3 weeks prior and was called by the restaurant to verify our reservation. Don't think I would go back due to the wait.
Very Good as Usual. The service is always very good and we use Roy's as a standard go to special occasion place. We also enjoy the Sushi at Roy's. They have a very good wine list and there are always more than enough (sometimes too many) good choices of entrées. They also have a vibrant bar scene and while we don't generally drink at bars they have an extensive and well prepared array of bar drinks too. Can't go wrong!
