Roy's Bonita Springs Ratings and Reviews
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.
Was so disappointed with the dinner. At first we were brought to a table in the "overflow"
room which we rejected. Miraculously a banquet table was available in the main dining room
which we took. Unfortunately this was the best part of our dinner. The waiter highly recommended I have a mai tai, their signature drink, which was tasteless with no noteable amount of alcohol.
We were willing to overlook this drink for the much anticipated meal. The spare ribs were
wonderful, but the butterfish entree was disappointing. After one bite I called the waiter over and told him to take it back, too fishy. When he returned with another plate of butterfish I was still disappointed and only took one bite. After sending back a dish, I never sent the next plate back, I just won't return to that restaurant. Unfortunately my husband ate his and was up all
night with stomach problems.
There is no excuse in my mind to serve bad fish, especially when it is your signature dish.
The new owners don't have the pride which made Roy's a household name.
Skip this restaurant.
We really enjoyed the food at Roy's. The Maui Wowie salad was exceptional. The wine list is very good. Our entrées were delicious. The noise level is a little high and there's a background noise from the kitchen that's quite annoying. The service was just OK. Our server was quite busy. I would recommend having reservations. Even with reservations we had a short wait.
Large pork portions. Good. Fish portions tiny
Desert was awesome chocolate must have. We got the soft shell crab not on the menu we received an email that they were carrying it for a short period of time as were part of the ohana Club which is a membership you could sign up for there. It was fabulous !always ask what's not on the menu because they have several menus
Our meals were excellent and prepared perfectly. The key lime tart is out of this world!! Our waiter was very friendly and provided awesome service. We would recommend Roy's to anyone looking for an overall great dining experience.
We have always loved roys and the food last night was exceptional. However, there was a problem in the kitchen and there was a noise that sounded like someone was running a vacuum cleaner right next to us. It started when we got our appetizers and lasted the entire time we were there. It nearly ruined the experience for us.
The lobster bisque had the consistency of water and had very little lobster in it. The steak was ordered medium rare and was served medium well. The semi to half circle booths are extremely uncomfortable. My friend got the beef short ribs and enjoyed them very much. Our waiter, Zach, was somewhat inattentive. Not absurdly so, but noticeably so. Desert was awesome - can't beat a glass of Woodford Reserve neat.
Roy's food is always delicious and certainly was again! The restaurant is busy and active. Service was good, not great. The other Roy's in the area has permanently closed, so perhaps that contributes to a busy Thursday night crowd at this location.
We ordered the chef menu-fixed price/ consisting of 3 courses. The salad ,which featured spinach and tomatoes , should have just omitted the very bland and tasteless tomatoes. We enjoyed the salmon and vegetables but the third course-dessert- was a disaster. The puff pastry was so soggy that the waitress gave us steak knives to get through it. We went for the salmon so we're happy with that dish and always order a salad so dessert was just a perk which we did not enjoy. Our other dinners there have been good- maybe just an off night this last time.
Have been going to Roy's restaurants about 15 yrs; Honolulu, Baltimore and Naples. Never was disappointed until this visit. My ribeye was not as described on menu, overcooked and fatty. Will give restaurant credit, they substitued the steak snd didn't charge for my meal. Short ribs were delicious! ! My husband felt his butterfish was not up to par.
