Roy's Newport Beach Ratings and Reviews
absolutely the worse experience i had in a restaurant...i am not fussy ...and i found the food salty ...the meat not cooked the way ordered and my fillet had a peculiar after taste . they offered me a $ 20 gift card for my next visit !!! i told them to keep it cause there is no way i would experience the cold treatment again . cant imagine this place lasting long in business . there are a million choices better than this for the high $ they charge for everything . Save your money and your evening ...DO NOT DINE HERE !!!!
Sorry wasn’t a good experience. Waited 15 minutes for service ordered Duckhorn Saviongon Blac wine another 10 minutes to find it and was wrong bottle went back to wine cooler 10 more minutes waitress finally brought back correct wine went to use wine opener I mentioned it was a screw cap. Appetizers arrived luke warm had to ask for Wasabi and soy sauce. Plus bread, then we finished the entree was immediately serviced which wasn’t up to standard. Our table of four plus another in the whole restaurant. Don’t understand!!
I was disappointed that they raised the price on the pre fixe without notification: said it was buried in the fine print of the menu. I expected better from this restaurant. On our particular night, there was an odor of sewer gas...which may indicate a venting problem.
This was our first time at this Roy's. We tried the four-course tasting menu and weren't disappointed. I had the prawns, which were huge and well seasoned. We added an order of lobster potstickers at the start. Everything was delicious and well presented. And we received friendly, attentive service.
Went to Roys for our Anniversary as we have done a few times before. All restaurants should come and watch the team produce an evening dining experience. The service on all levels was amazing as was the food. Even waived the corkage fee which wasn't necessary as we always bring our own wine and expect to pay the fee. Great food, service and atmosphere that is highly recommended!!!
The restaurant just recently started serving lunch so it was very empty when we went. The hostess was friendly and the environment lovely. I think if they start advertising that they are now open for lunch, people will be thrilled to have a new place to dine.
Although our waitress, Michelle, was excellent and just the right touch of service, it took a long time for the food to come out. With two children, I found it surprising that we had to ask for children's menu way into the evening after ordering appetizers. Then it took some more time before they got their prestart plates of veggies and mini quesadillas.
What I did like was the picture capturing a big birthday celebration. That was a nice take away for the birthday girl.
Ribeye steak was cooked perfectly and was very tasteful but the lobster was small and almost over cooked. It came to the table with no drawn butter nor lemon wedge. We had to ask for drawn butter and had to ask for bread. The steak made up for the disappointment of service and tiny lobster
Seated promptly with our reservation. Delicious and authentic Mai Tai cocktails, but I would recommend that they dress the drink with a small orchid. Very good salad. Excellent diver scallops, the short rib was stringy and not as good. Probably I should have ordered the fish. We had the pineapple upside down cake for dessert, which was only OK. Server was very attentive and could not have been better. There are many choices in this neighborhood so we probably won't be going back.
This restaurant was half empty at noon while the neighboring restaurants were packed. I think Roy's could use a revamp on the dark decor, and also put some new items on the menu. My lunch was tasty but the actual portion size was pretty small for the price. Even the cucumber namasu was a tiny little serving...as if cucumbers are expensive?!?
The Travelzoo deal was $120 worth of food for $59 -- the 2 meals we ate were not worth $120 -- but $59 was appropriate
the salad dressing was very distasteful -- didn't care for it at all -- was offered another dressing type, but declined
the 2 entres (chicken and salmon) were very good
The atmosphere was very noisy
Roy's Restaurants, no matter where they are located, have never disappointed us. On the day we had lunch, our friends were very late. Normally, this location closes from 2:30 - 5:00 for dinner prep. The hostess told us if we get in before 2:25pm they'd seat us and let us have a meal. We finally made it in around 2:20 and they were true to their word. We were promptly seated (yes, there were other folks there), provided the lunch/brunch menu (given the time) and served graciously and promptly. We all had rather "basic" things like Eggs Benedict and an Omelette. But Roy's unique sauces and careful handling of the food made these fundamental meals, special. We would recommend Roy's to anyone interested in good food and good service. And if you get on their email list, you'll get all their promotions!
A nice visit with good food. Like most Roy's it's on the expensive side, but nice for a special occasion. Very good lobster bisque and the macadamia mahi mahi was very good. A nice butterfish filet mignon combo, but at $66 overpriced. May return in the future, but have other favorite seafood restaurants.
The food was creatively cooked and present. Taste was amazing. The only thing I was disappointed in was that part of my dish wasn't hot. It was more on the cold side, not even luke warm. In all the times I've been there, my food has always been hot off the stove.
None of your selections really apply therefore none checked. We have been to other Roy's restaurants and have been pleased but not so with this one. The front receptionists were not at all welcoming or friendly and one even seemed bothered by being at work. Our waitress while helpful with the menu was very slow and other patrons who came in after we did received their food while we waited for ours. Then we were charged on our bill for an item we did not order. While the food is always good at Roy's we would not recommend this particular restaurant while visiting Newport Beach again.
Always good. My husband and I had our meals served in a bowl-like plate which was nice, but it made it look like there wasn't much food on the plate, almost like the food was going down a sinkhole or funnel. I wish I'd taken a picture. The food was good, though.
Our server was great and very attentive.
food was beautifully prepared & all was absolutely delicious. My husband & kids has the sampler canoe appetizer and demolished it. My son, surprisingly, had the Mahi Mahi & cleaned his plate. Their house Martini is delicious as was the flourless chocolate cake. They had a happy birthday sign waiting on the table for my son and took a family photo, which they gave us as a keepsake. Manager was very kind and accommodating. My husband forgot our $25 gift card & he honored it so we did not need to drive all the way back home. Roys is the best!
This location for Roy's has been our family of four's favorite for at least ten years but management is lacking and quality of service is terrible. Very, very disappointed! Wish we had tried the Anaheim location. Can't believe how downhill things have gone for this location. Need better management and experienced servers. Mixed up orders and timing was so off!
Compensated with free dessert which we knew to order at beginning of meal (soufflé) but turns out gave it to the table next to us who ordered it minutes before and we waited another thirty minutes along with other poor service and waiting forever for meal which delivered everything including appetizers at once. Not the quality expect for the price and reputation is diving.
Excellent service and excellently prepared dishes at the Roy's Newport Beach site. Our server was Michelle, who was attentive, and friendly. We both ordered the Macadamia crusted white fish which was superb as it was so tender and tasty. We like to thank Justin, the manager, who came by our booth to thank us for visiting. Will definitely come back again to this Roy's.
Been to Roys 4-5 times food was always awesome. I usually get Butterfish. I got the filet and butterfish dinner special. So did my wife and my son. We all commented the butterfish had a slimy texture. Previous visits I've had it and it just flaked and crumbled in your mouth, was never slimy in texture. I felt for 6 people $420 would have been fine of the food was impeccable. Unfortunately it was not. My filet was a bit fatry as well. It's unfortunate since my wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and had renewed our vows by the harbor.
Have to say this trip to Roys did provide the value and good food I'm accustomed to from them. I don't know if it was because it was part of dinner special and ingredients weren't as fresh or good, but again the bill was still 400 plus and 3 of us got the special.
I went to Roy for lunch, there is a very limited carte for this time of the day.
I had a couple maki rolls, the first one was deep fry, that was not a good idea, the second was fine but nothing close to what I can get at a good sushi place. I had the lemon tart and that was nice, a bit too sweet for me but quiet well made. The service was excellent, I was the only customer until almost the end. The environment is pleasant, it is an open kitchen which is usually good sign but I cannot recommend Roy for lunch based on this experience. These rolls were not interesting and quiet expensive. My cosmo cocktail was excellent.
I have been eating at Roy's for over ten years and I love it. I highly recommend Roys for any occasion. The employees are amazing and really friendly. Makes me feel like home every time I dine at Roy's Newport Beach CA location. Amazing all the way. Cocktails are very special. They all make me feel like a princess! Being in Real Estate and a jeweler, I recommend Roys to all my clients and they all say great recommendation. The manager Tim is so amazing to everyone!
