Roy's Bonita Springs Ratings and Reviews
Dined on a 'promo night' so restaurant was very busy. Filet was very rare instead of medium (our guest did not send it back for add'l cooking because thought it would take too long), desserts were just ok (including pineapple upside cake which is usually always exceptional).
Because it was so busy and perhaps understaffed, I gave our waiter & busboy a 'pass' with regard to service.
The only good thing I can say about this visit to Roys was that they seated us at our reservation time Sunday night. Once seated it took the waiter 20 minutes to say hello and 40 minutes before taking our order. 1 hr 10 min we still had not recieved our food. Loud, noisy and obviously understaffed. Food served late - soup was cold. Main dishes were very good. Manager gave small credit to our bill and comped dessert- big deal!! Thank goodness we were with friends and we were there for the company not the location. Will be a while before we go back
I was very disappointed in the Butterfish and the portions. My Butterfish smelled very fishy so I didn't eat it. My boyfriend got a steak and shrimp and the portion was extremely small for the $. He said his food was 'ok'. I will not go back, nor will I recommend Roy's from now on. I will say that the service was good and the server didn't charge me for the Butterfish. But, we were not offered any bread and since the portions were so small, the side dish was not enough to feel like I ate much at all. Very disappointed.
Have not been to Roys Bonita in a few years. While the decor has not changed much, thankfully their best dishes haven't either. After 18 years, the blackened tuna and butterfish, while no longer novel, are still delicious. And the first place we've ever had bok choy! Other mains were solid, salmon and grilled seafood trio, and the molten chocolate cake was outstanding.
We walked in for our reservation at 9:30 & a gentleman behind the counter in the cooking area rolled his eyes like we were coming in as they were about to close & had very poor body language. I do recall they had later reservations than 9:30 that night. Considered walking back out of the restaurant due to his behavior. Our waitress didn't go over any specials until we asked for them & wasn't very welcoming/professional. Maybe reservations after 9 shouldn't be available if the workers are going to have such an attitude like they don't want to be there.
Very good food. The butter fish is a real treat. Love the bar and happy hour. At dinner recently, our waiter was brusque and dismissive. We never even got bread service. Though we asked him to hold our dinner orders back so we could enjoy our cocktails, our dishes were there in a flash - almost felt like they wanted us out of there. Not a great dining experience, tho we all liked our food. Should you be in and put of a nice restaurant in under an hour???
Roy's is always great, but we were there on Valentines Day and they were crowded. They added an extra seating and it looks like they added staff and perhaps tables to accommodate the dinners. That may have been the reason the Service was a little below Par for Roy's.
The room is a little to industrial for my liking and does need some up-dating, but the food as always was great. Dinner for two was approximately $160++
This was our first visit to Roy's. It will not be our last. Everything was better than expected. The service and food exceeded all expectations, these days, that doesn't happen often. The staff does anything and everything possible to give you the best possible dining experience. WOW!
Another great evening with family. We used the Aloha hour to enjoy a glass of wine with appetizers outside on the patio before going straight to the entrees once we were seated. Five different dishes and everyone enjoyed their choice. Last time here had the macadamia encrusted mahi mahi which was fabulous but reverted back to my old favorite, butterfish, and I wasn't disappointed. The Prix Fixe nights are a great way to try Roy's for the first time at a reasonable price. Give yourself a treat real soon.
This is the second time this year I have been to Roys - the menu does not change. When I asked for medium rare tuna I got cold and when it came back it was well done. And the butter fish (a favorite of mine from way back) was not cooked through...I will not return.
First visit since change of ownership. Menu has been cut down significantly but old favorites remain. Our favorite server, head chef and manager are all gone. Food was comparable to before but portions are smaller. Overall, it was good, but just not the same as before. After visiting Roy's all over the country and Hawaii, this still is the best overall, just not quite as good as the past.
This was a wonderful dining experience. We were early for our reservation, but seated promptly upon arrival. Our waiter was very knowledgable and helpful with questions. He did not rush us, but rather allowed time for us to chat and enjoy our cocktail. Food courses were nicely spaced for our dining pleasure. Food was excellent. Nicely prepared and tasty. I tried whole fried snapper and was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to take apart and eat. It was delicious. We had the prix fixed dinner special and it was an excellent value. Everyone should try Roy's for a fine dining experience.
We have been to Roy's multiple times, but this was the worse service we have ever received. Waited over 10 minutes to be greeted and another 10 minutes to get water. The waiter was unknowledged of the menu and wine list. I'm sorry but we won't be back till after season is over.
We have dined there in the past and we're always very pleased.
This time we were very disappointed ....waiter was not at all personable ... or attentive.... not very knowledgeable reguarding the menu ... we purchased a bottle of wine and he never returned to refresh our wine ... and had not placed it near enough our table for us to reach it without getting into the space of the table next to us.
Caesar salad was a big disappointment... not eaten... they did remove it from the bill. My husband ordered a small salad.. the server showed up with a salad for both of us and left so quickly we could not comfortably get his attention
To tell them we only wanted one. Neither of us ate it as it was drenched in dressing.
Our guest did ask to see the manager.... and was brought a menu.... at which point ... he was told they misunderstood his request. The manager did show up after a second request .By the way... he was a well spoken gentleman... not difficult to understand. After dinner drinks were requested on ice ... and showed up with no ice.
The meal itself was delicious... but was overshadowed by all the rest of the experience.
We have always considered it one of our favorite restaurants ..but I truly would hesitate to return with guests as I was so disappointed with the overall experience... at a cost of $260 for a meal... we left.... quite unhappy.
I might try again some day.... but would not bring guests.
We have been to this Roy's many times and always 5 star in all categories, but this time we were disappointed. Nothing major, but not the kind of presentation and service we have come to expect. Hopefully, next time will be the wonderful experience we are used to at Roy's.
I am never disappointed at Roy's. The server was friendly and helpful. She told us about the specials and made suggestions. We were seated immediately. The salad, entrees, and dessert were prepared perfectly. I was treated with a complimentary dessert for my birthday. We will be back soon.
Our numbers and time changed at the last minute and the staff worked quickly to accommodate our needs. Dinner was delicious and service prompt and helpful. The restaurant was busy but we were able to hear each other and didn't feel that we were disturbing anyone else. I would definitely recommend Roy's as a place to enjoy an evening out with friends.
I had and inside reservation for 15 thinking we could order off the Aloha menu till 7pm but found out it is only for the bar area. The staff quickly set two tables outside for us so we could take advantage of the lower pricing, not easy to do with a large party. It was a gorgeous night and we were able to talk without other inside noise. It turned out very well. Thank you !
It was ok. The salmon was a bit overlooked. I opted to skip seafood entrée in lieu of wagu beef meatloaf. It was tasteless and at the very best, boring. Sunday the place was crazy and very loud. Clearly understaffed. A bit pricey, too. Interesting but probably won't return.
We are frequent customers of Roys and this is the first time we have been disappointed. This was a very special occasion (60th wedding anniversary) and we were treating our friends. Our gentleman friend ordered a rib eye steak that was absolutely horrible. Being the nice guy he is he never mentioned it, until we noticed him struggling with it. It was extremely fatty and full of gristle. The food runner basically threw our dinners on the table, until we said something to him and then became more gentle saying he was just in a hurry. We ordered bread which Didn't come? One of our other guests could not finish her dinner and asked for a box, whichwe waited forever for and when we asked again we were told that they had accidentally thrown her leftover away. Unfortunately what should have been a happy. Special occasion turned into sheer frustration. As a side note, I am not usually a complainer, but this was a little much.
Ordered butter fish- restaurant special, and it was poor compared to previous visits. My wife always loves it, said it was almost not edible. I ate it too, and found it almost not cooked through. We frequent a Roy's restaurant s many times, and considering this was also with friends and business people- I would not hurry back
Wow! What a disappointment. This was one of our favorite restaurants and we could always look forward to good service and a good meal. Our latest venture was A real disappointment. A long wait for food that was only lukewarm and a meal experience that turned into an endurance contest.
The outdoor patio has comfortable seating. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. We ordered steak, meatloaf, scallop and shrimp dinners- all prepared as requested. The chocolate lava and pineapple desserts were a hit too. Pricey but excellent food and service.
From the bar service to dessert everything was oustanding. We introduced two couples to Roys and they enjoyed the entire dining experience. Our drinks during Aloha hour were mixed to perfection. The selection of libations was endless ~ something for everybody
Dinner was above and beyond as usual. The blend of unique spices and menu offerings were great. Presentation and attention to detail with every course.
We have visited several Roys locations and this one is our personal favorite. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
