Roy's Orlando Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated our daughters 25th Birthday. There were (6) of us including the birthday girl.
First off the myself and our 10 year old ordered the exact same meal the Pork Porterhouse.
He received a pork chop rib cut and I received a porterhouse cut, same price. Confronted the serving waitress who sent over the manager who played stupid and took what was left on each plate for the meat was over cooked to show the chef. She played stupid as well. CUSTOMERS BEWARE !!!!!
My wife ordered the filet and lobster tail and her filet was raw! Sent it back but by the time it came out we had it packaged to go.
The manager comped two desserts which should've been given for free for they were tasteless and dry, not like years past.
Average cost per person with tip about $75.
We've eaten at some of the best restaurants and this one will be on the bottom of the list, long story short "We won't be back".
We were super excited to try Roy's for Easter but we're very disappointed - the food was very average - the filet was tough, the butterfish was swimming in a sweet glaze sauce and the lobster bisque was Luke warm. For three people with a few cocktails out bill was $250 completely not worth it - we will hit Ruth's Chris or Eddie Vs next time.
I have been to roys many times. At first I could not make out what was wrong. The ambiance was not right and service level was not up to par. We left the restaurant with the feeling not gonna go back there. On the way home we googled roys and found it has been sold to Applebee's. Now I get it . No thanks
This was my first time dining at Roy's and I enjoyed it from start to finish and all between! The ambiance was very nice our server pleasant and the food was excellent. The restaurant manager stopped by our table and greeted us which was very nice😊 I'll definitely come back.
Really disappointed. Food came out cold. My food had to go back and therefore I ate at different times. Waiter mixed up dessert. So dishes came out at different times again. Chocolate soufflé I ordered had collapsed. This was for my birthday. On other special occasions Roys made it special. This time they did not. Standards I have been used to at Roys have really lowered. I am now considering whether to ever return again.
It seems as Roy's increases their menu prices the quality of food and service decrease. Upon our entry the hostess came to the stand and initially didn't even knowledge us standing at the entrance. She reviewed whatever was on her computer screen and made a couple clicks and then said "Oh, hi. Do you have a reservation?". It was kind of insulting since she saw us standing at the host stand PRIOR to her walking towards it. Our waitress lacked fine dinning skills and came off as trashy. She also rushed our meal even after we asked for it to be a slow relaxing night ie: please don't rush us. She got us in the door and fed us 3 courses and sent us on our way within an hour! Don't blame me for ordering desert, the waitress overheard our conversation about our plans for something sweet and brought it out without asking. Which on the one hand was thoughtful and on the other hand we were not looking to be rushed and were not given choice... My beef short ribs lacked flavor entirely and the portion of potatoes and broccolinni was negligible. I expect better from Roys.
This place accommodated our party with a VIP guest and took extra good care of us. Lobster bisque is not good don't order it. The appetizers were amazing! A platter of mixed things including ribs .... so very good. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. My friend had the filet , WOW, best he ever had! I tasted it and wished I got it! It was soooooo good! Desserts are also excellent order an array to share.
The food was quite good, and I am thrilled that Roy's has now started to serve lunch. The problem was that our lunch plates (new concept at Roy's - includes a salad, soup, entree and a couple of cookies) sat under the heat lamp for well over 10 minutes. Finally, we got the server's attention and she hustled over and brought the dishes to us. Unfortunately, the salad was quite wilted under the heat lamp. I wish the server was more attentive or had a way to know when the food was ready.
Tried the Chef's Tasting menu. The appetizers and entree were delicious. The dessert could have been better. It was a little hard to eat. The salmon was one of the best I have eaten. The pork chops were a double chop - large portion. The service was good - but not great. Drinks were not refilled in a timely manner. Plates were not cleared in a timely fashion. But otherwise - very good.
The food and service were typical for Roy's... the Orlando location. Lose level for tables in the large back room didn't allow for any conversation... sad as I was with my boy one on one during a trip to the area. The ambiance in Maui and Costa Mesa much preferred.
Not good. We asked for a quiet table and we were give maybe the worst table in the restaurant - next to the kitchen door in the traffic pattern of all the wait staff - at the corner with a bright light shining on part of our table. Our waiter was cocky. My fathers jumbo prawn meal was not edible. It was very tough and the flavor was bad with the vein in it. We informed the waiter and he ignored the information. He cleared the plate and showed NO curiosity about the fact that the food was bad. NONE. UNTIL AFTER HE RANG UP AND PRESENTED THE BILL. What a jerk! Then he asked my Dad what was wrong with the shrimp. It should have been removed from the bill. It was uneaten. Then he BLAMED MY FATHER by saying: you should have informed me sooner. We had informed him during the meal and when he cleared the plate and he ignored it. This was really really bad service. I had the butterfish and so did my mother. We both noticed a fishy taste. I NEVER had a fishy flavor in the butterfish at ROY's before - never. The bok choy used to be more delicate, with some placed on top of the fish, and there was a skinny little carrot served with it - which seemed strange. Between the awful table (we never should have accepted this table - nobody should be given this table), the inedible prawns, the fishy butterfish, the awful waiter - Timothy B. - it was an awful meal.
Just very poor overall. Had requested a booth but one wasn't available, which wasn't a big deal. We asked however to be sat towards the edges of the restaurant and especially somewhere quiet. Despite this request we were sandwiched in between two large groups of very loud people, and the rest of the restaurant was 2/3rds empty!
The waiter was clueless about the menu. We asked the difference between a couple of sushi items and his reply was "they have different ingredients". When asked how I would like my pork prepared, I said I would go with what the chef recommended, only to be told medium or medium well was my choices and I had to choose.
On top of that the food itself was severely lacking. Sushi roll was poorly made, with barely half the ingredients that was listed on the menu. The starter of filet beef and chicken satay skews was like chewing on old leather and barely warm.
To top the experience off, I was violently ill when I got home!
My husband and I went to Roys in Hawaii for our Honeymoon and had the most fabulous dinner with the best service - so when we heard there was one where we lived in Orlando we had to go for our anniversary. From the moment we arrived the entire staff was so accommodating and polite, the food is absolutely fantastic and fresh with Hawaiian fish flow in daily,the ambiance is great - just everything from the moment we arrived with a card and flowers on our table for our anniversary, to the moment we left was incredible. Our server was Michael O, he is THE BEST! We can't wait to go back to Roys Orlando soon, one of the best restaurants in town!
We were visiting Universal. The food was excellent. We tried the tasting appetizer which was big enough for a meal for two. We each ordered fish which was prepared to perfection. The waiter was very accommodating to special dietary needs. Would highly recommend over eating within Universal. The food is much healthier, tastier, and priced much more reasonably.
Great service and food was good. Fish dishes were excellent. Steak came out well done (more done than ordered) after server advised they cooked steaks on the rare side. They were quick to replace and made accommodations for the inconvenience.
Was told you could wear shorts, etc, but was definitely more upscale with that. Lots of business people in for dinner. I would say at least very nice casual dress.
Valet parking was free with tip. Be careful of being accosted by kids in the parking lot (strip mall type setting) trying to sell you things.
Would go back.
Service was superb -- excellent in every respect. Drinks are pricey unless you're in the bar for happy hour, but they are very good. Same with wines. The cuisine is fresh and inventive. Our favorites include pineapple upside down cake, butterfish, lobster California roll, lobster potstickers and the poke bowl, among many others.
We've been to Roy's in several locations and have always left happy. Except this time. Flavors were good, the cocktails were excellent, but the prix fixe salmon salad was mushy and mine had something hard in the greens that got stuck in my teeth. I had the steak, and the flavor was good. The meat was full of sinew and other undesirable inedibles. He had the cod, and it was done perfectly.
Been a long-time diner at this Orlando outpost of the chain. Unfortunately, the portions have become smaller, prices higher, and food quality and preparation have been better. Possibly why I have received many gift coupons and discounts in the past couple of months. Service is always good though, but while this used to be a favorite spot for family and friends dining, it no longer will be. Too many other high-end spots which are better and provide much more value.
