All the items we tried were interesting, well plated, very tasty, and unique in their own way. I had salmon for entree, and it was the best salmon I have ever had. Service was awesome as well with much attention from either Server, Bus Person, or Manager.

Lovely anniversary celebration. The food was delicious and all of the wait staff very friendly and attentive. We appreciated the card, flowers, and dessert, too. The bar patrons got rather loud at times which annoying but overall did not ruin the occasion. Sports yelling/cheering just seemed out of place for that environment.

We always have an amazing experience at Roy's in Orlando. We were celebrating my fiancé's birthday and it was such an enjoyable experience. The cocktails are amazing the island poké salad is to die for and their entrées are always on point. We will most certainly be back!

We were there to celebrate a birthday. The special touches such as a card and flowers on the table made it so nice as did the very friendly greeting and great service. The food was outstanding. A beautiful chocolate lava cake with birthday wishes written on the plate in chocolate capped off a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Roy's for a special celebration or just a nice night out.

Roy's Restaurant is always a special treat! We enjoyed the magical menu selections of Hawaiian Poke salad the petit filet and veggies entree and the awesome chocolate torte for dessert. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Ambience was fine.
Will return again !

The experience was ok. My server was very good but there was nothing outstanding about my experience.
I have been there before and well..... this visit was just blah. Not sure I would rush back. Too many other restaurants to dine at.

We have eaten at Roys many times in Orlando and Hawaii unfortunately on this occasion we did not feel it was as good as previous visits. The food was not the usual quality and the server did not point out it was extra for the dessert we ordered, and we felt rushed eating. The cocktails at the bar where excellent

My wife and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary at Roy's and were treated with great care and attention. Our waiter, Howard, was excellent in explaining our dining options, and arranged to have a special dessert created for us on the spot. We were extremely pleased and highly recommend Roy's Orlando to anyone wishing to celebrate a special event and enjoy one of the best meals ever!

We had such a great time at Roys. We were early so started with their happy hour menu which was delicious and varied from the usual fare at happy hours other places. The drinks were out of this world. Then dinner came and really let them show off their talents and we loved dessert. We were with another couple who had never been and they could not stop thanking us for the wonderful evening. Great service. Great food. great all around perfect evening. Will do that again often

This was my first trip to Roy's and I was duly impressed! First, the service staff, especially our waiter, Howie, was excellent - he was so knowledgeable about Roy's and the food and he seemed to enjoy working there. The food was wonderful and, although we were dining during "Magical Dining month," I think the fixed price menu was affordable. My companion and I will definitely come back! What a great way to celebrate your birthday and they really made me feel special - orchids on the table, a sweet HBD greeting and a free chocolate soufle! Yummy!

The food was great, the only thing did not like was Server. He was interupting us as he was in rush to take plates even when we were not done eating yet. Restaurant was not busy to give him an excuse for his rush.

The restaurant staff was superb, really attentive and went out of their way to recognize our birthday person at dinner. The service was amazing. The food was good but there were a couple things that were just disappointing, of particular note was the mushroom side dish, this was a complete disaster, tasted like they came out of a can with no flavor. I will note that our dinner entrees were delicious and the appetizers were great as well. The scallops were cooked perfectly!
The other really disappointing thing was the drinks, maybe I have had bad mai tai's before but for me the mai tai should be a sweet drink and a pretty basic recipe should be followed, Roy's apparently decided to be different and they have their own mix, which tasted just awful. We didn't send our drinks back because well, what are we going to say, hey we didn't like them, but they were not sweet, they had a bitter, peppery taste to them, just not at all what a mai-tai should taste like. Very odd mix they have.
The dessert, chocolate souffle, was delicious, warm in the center and the accompanying raspberry sauce went well with it.
Overall, after all was said and done, the restaurant was great for special occasion and while the food was good and the service great, we don't think it was worth it, price-wise, and can't say we will be returning anytime soon.

The food took FOREVER to come to the table...and when it did, only 2 of the 4 meals arrived. The rest of us just sat, waiting more than 15 minutes for the final meal to be served. Several tables near us turned over TWICE and we still were waiting to eat. Tasted fine, when it got there...but it was so disappointing to have to wait

This was our first disappointing visit to a Roy's (other good visits were Atlanta and Maui). Orlando Roy's was too noisy, and the food was mixed: amount of curry in lobster bisque overpowered the lobster taste; skewered chicken and skewered beef on combo appetizer were cold (rest of appetizer was suitably warm). Maui Wowie salad was too salty due to excessive amount of capers. Shortribs entree was good. Service was good except that second glass of wine -- that should have been served simultaneous with entree -- came later than desired.

One of my favorite "restaurant row" dining experiences. Enjoy sitting at the kitchen view bar watching the show by the chefs. Wonderful adult beverages, especially with happy hour pricing! Had the "magical dining" poke which was really good. Watch out for the Red Dragon sauce, it has a bite. And if it's on the menu, don't miss the peanut butter pie for desert.
Great staff, friendly and attentive. If there is one fault with this restaurant, it's that it can be quite noisy during peak dining hours.
Oh, and they have a great happy hour bar menu, too!
While our server was attentive, the serv ...
While our server was attentive, the service was slow. That actually would have been OK but the people seated next to us (and I do mean next to us--almost in our lap) arrived easily 10 minutes after us and left 15 minutes before we did), and had the same server.
My wife had the swordfish from the prix fixe seasonal menu. She loves fish. She took most of it home and ultimately threw it away. She found it bland. The cat wouldn't eat it, although he is picky.
I had the teppanyaki shrimp, and it was OK. I would have liked it much better in a not so spicy sauce, and with more rice. Like Seasons 52, this restaurant believes that you'll walk away thinking it's more exclusive if they give you quite small servings. Americans do overeat, but these are really small servings.
We ordered two cappuccinos well BEFORE our dessert came. We waited 15 minutes AFTER the dessert came for the coffee. To his credit, the server didn't charge us for the coffee, but it did take the blush off the rose.
I'm not saying we won't dine here again, but we live on restaurant row and have so many establishments from which to choose--I can easily dine in several that offer better service, better ambiance, better food at prices that aren't Christini's or Chatham's.

We were in FL for business over our Anniv. and took advantage of the Roy's location here (this is our traditional Anniv. dinner spot in our hometown). Unfort. we were a little disappointed on several fronts. The open air kitchen at this site is VERY close to several of the dining room tables (ours) and it was VERY loud. Our server forgot to bring a drink, we asked (3) times for edamame (finally came 2 mins before our meals). My husband always gets the butterfish which did NOT disappoint. I got pork chop special with pineapple compote. The pork chop was generously sized, however, carried too much of a charred grill taste for my liking and lacked the pineapple compote. Our server did comp us a glass of wine and our dessert. Just didn't feel like the special Roy's dinner we're used to.

We went for Magical Dining Month. $33 per person for a three-course meal. Our bill was $98. You see where I'm going. More than 30 additional dollars for two cocktails, plus an up-charge for dessert, of which we weren't informed. Our server was super friendly and enthusiastic. He said he'd bring the MDM menu for us to glance at, though we knew what we wanted. He never brought it. Therefore, the souffle he convinced us to try included an up-charge of $6 that we didn't see coming. Not pleased. While the regularly priced cocktails were outstanding, the MDM food -- what we came for -- was nothing to write home about. Hawaiian poke was filling, but ordinary. The teppanyaki shrimp was sub-par, with rice that seemed very much out of a box; bok choy was flat and devoid of seasoning; prosciutto wrapped Ono was clean, but ho-hum. The only delight was the beef & blue cheese tortellini appetizer. Disappointing all the way around.

We had a bad experience which we don't usually have at other Roy's restaurants. The food was brought out before the salad and we even said don't bring the food before the salad. Bad waitering 101. All the main courses were cold. The trio had very small portions. My molten cake did not have any gooey center it was all cake like although a couple others at the table did have the warm molten center. They did comp the meals but overall it was not up to Roy's standards at all. The waiter tried to blame everybody else for the mixups and did not take any responsibility himself. The guy serving the water and edamame was awesome though!

Tried the Poke and Calamari appetizers.
Request the Calamari with sauce on the side (overwhelms the calamari if mixed together).
Poke was good, but more rice than fish. Straight soy base so it can be pretty salty.
Had the scallops w/pork belly. Awesome.
Also had the shrimp. Great dinner as well.
No desert as we were too full.

We had never been to Roy's and was quite disappointed with the food, ambience and overall experience. The service was good, but not sure I would return. I do recognize it was magical dining still it was not impressive.
Sorry as I normally do not write negative reviews, but felt this was a disappointing time.

This was the last time my wife and I will eat at this restaurant. We have had great experiences in other locations, but this one in particular does not seem to meet the standards. We had a reservation at 9pm and didn't get seated on time, we had a table near the food line and could see the kitchen was already backed up with lots of plates sitting in the window. We ordered magical dining dinner and a regular entree. The server, manager, and rest of the staff seemed to be frazzled. By 10:30 we left and did not wait for our Togo dessert because we were so over it. My wife ordered sushi and was not given soy sauce or chop sticks. Our server walked by our empty drinks and finished plates 5-6 times before she cleared the table. My wife is a pharmaceutical rep that has spent a lot of money hosting hospital meetings in the private dining and does not plan to work with this restaurant in the future.

We go to Roy's frequently. This time, we decided to try the Magical Menu. We we prepared to be let down, but weren't. The poke salad, as usual, was wonderful. The ono couldn't have been better. To top it off, their delicious chocolate soufflé was offered as dessert. Needless to say, not bad for $33 per person. Of course, the Hawaiian martinis and wine added a bit to the cost.
