Roy's Orlando Ratings and Reviews
What happened to our favorite restaurant??? It's completely changed. Felt like I was dining at someplace like Chilis or Applebee's. No requests were honored (always were in past). Service was OK. But definitely not the special one on one service we used to get. No more Edamame. If you want it we were told by special request now. Took 30 minutes to get appetizer and then meal came shortly after while we were eating. Food? Ugh. Overcooked. Their special lava cake? Completely dry with no "lava" to be found. The pineapple cake was burnt and dry. Tables all around us were complaining about the same things. Overheard the table next to us say part of their food was frozen inside. We left grieving the death of a dear friend. 😥 We just don't understand it.
Does not compare to Bonita Springs Florida Location. Food was Ok but not special. It was a birthday celebration and no one took a picture and gave to us like Bonita. I took someone special there for a special occasion and was disappointed. Maybe go to Bonita and learn something.
Will not visit this location again.
Service was exceptional and the food was good, but not quite the experience one would expect given the price point. We were there early in the evening, mind you, but eating a $44 entree to the sound of a crying baby was a bit of a mismatch; not that I don't love babies and appreciate their importance to the continuation if the species! Service was impeccable, though, and we were given a delicious (gratis) chocolate dessert to make up for our slow entrees. It was good, overall, but I don't see us rushing back.
Worst experience ever at Roy's. They just couldn't get anything right. Drinks took 20 minutes and looked as if half spilled on tray. Salad was wilted and thrown on plate. Mixed seafood grill looked like an appetizer. Manager was apologetic, but did nothing to make anything right - empty suit. Waitress tried, but was overwhelmed. After reliable food/service for 10+ years, doubt I'll ever return.
Overall the experience was OK we had to fish dinners that were dramatically under cooked and they wanted to debate how they were going to fix it which I did not think was the best approach to customer service
There are hundreds of nice choices in Orlando this is middle of the pack
We enjoyed a very nice dinner from start to finish. The service was excellent and knowledgeable server explaining the different dishes made the selection easier. We were treated with complimentary lobster potstickers which were delicious. All in all it was a relaxed and enjoyable evening, food terrific.
This used to be our long time favorite spot, we celebrated anniversaries, birthdays, home closings and so much more here in the past, that is what we have now is just memories. The most horrible service anyone could have received was our gift tonight. I order the same thing every visit, some fish other than butterfish was disguised on my plate. The service took 2 hrs and 45 minutes. Waiter never checked on us or explained the lengthy wait and even brought us melted ice cream. I have no words!
This was far from our first time at Roy's so we know what is the norm. I'll keep it simple. Out of three items we tried to order. Out of cherries for very expensive manhattan. 5 minute wait to see a server. 20 minute wait for the no cherry manhattan. Starting to get the picture? The whole night went like this. I will probably go back sometime but I will no longer bring out of towners or have any special occasions here.
This restaurant has been amazing more than once at different locations. We had a family reunion recently at the Orlando location and though the service was excellent as well as the presentation of the food, a couple of the dinners were shockingly of small portions for the price and we were dissapointed at the end of the night. The quality of the food is spectacular but the portions were more like tapas instead of entree. The restaurant is unique and worthwhile but the lighter portion sizes were not expected at all. We are going to try again but still wondering why this occurred.
Roy's fish preparations are the best I have had anywhere. Their Roy's Trio which combines three of their most popular dishes is to die for. Their rolls are unique. The chocolate raspberry soufflé was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal.
The wine tasted rancid to me and my husband both but neither of us mentioned to the other while dining. The red snapper was stale and I finally gave up eating it. We have dined at Roy's in Plano, Honolulu and two or three other states and there was no comparison. It was a waste of $330.
This restaurant needs to overhaul it's lunch menu. Sushi rolls are exceptionally good, miso soup is decent. The entrees however need help. I had the loco moco wagu beef and found it to be uninspiring. It was a hamburger over fried rice and a fried egg atop the burger. I did not enjoy it.
Really like this restaurant. Although we were waiting for a table so we went to the bar. The bartender could not have been more disinterested in taking care of us. Asked for a menu and he never came back. So I guess no drinks for us. Once we got to the table a pineapple Martini and a glass of wine took almost 20 mins.
Food was delicious. Started with the lobster pot stickers. Highly recommended. I had the Ahi Tuna salad and my friend had the Macadamian Fish. Tasty food and a great value. Our service was outstanding and the environment was quiet and relaxed. Perfect for conversations.
Server was really inattentive. Several
Issues with our order. Brunch menu was very limited. Benedict was over cooked twice! Just overall really disappointing experience. Unfortunate as we had Raton there during restaurant week and it was lovely! Maybe just a bad day!
We have loved Roy's for many years and have gone there a lot-for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. But sadly, we have seen a definite change since Bloomin' Brands/Outback sold it to Applebee's. Being allergic to Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), I have always been able to get a great MSG-free meal at Roy's, and could choose from pretty much everything on their menu. Now, my options have been whittled down considerably. In the past, you could always count on exotic sides to accompany your meal. Now, the sides are almost mediocre, which is sad because the prices sure haven't been lowered. We hadn't been to Roy's in over a year and a half, but decided to give it another try because I had a Groupon. Sadly, our service was pretty bad. It took probably a half hour to get our appetizers, and the sauce for our rolls came as I was eating my last piece. The entrees were good, but the rice was extremely dry and had zero flavor. I thought it was strange that the options on the pre fixe menu included lots of rice in the rolls and then more rice for the entree. Nothing like a lot of carbs! As for dessert, they were excellent as usual. However, one of the diners at our table was brought the wrong dessert. Then, she didn't receive her correct dessert until way after everyone was finished with theirs. Awkward! (But the waiter did leave the wrong dessert at the table as a nice gesture.) And forget about coffee. We had asked for coffee when we ordered and reminded the wait staff a couple of times. We ended up getting our coffee after we were finished with our desserts, and after we reminded the waitstaff again. In addition, the bills were messed up and we got someone else's bar drink on our tab. All in all, everyone at our table complained about Roy's not being what it used to be. And then I went into the Ladies Restroom. It was a mess! So sad to see a great restaurant decline...
