Roy's Orlando Ratings and Reviews
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.
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...
We have gone to Roy's 3-4 times when visiting Orlando. This was our first disappointment. The Ribeye steak was a poor choice, however the butterfish was very good. Go for the fusion choices, not the American.
The service was casual and not very polished. The wine list has multiple choices, varying in pricing. If you go cheap, you will pay a high mark up ($40 for a $12 bottle). We chose a wine that retails for $65 and they charged $97....a reasonable markup.
In the past, we have had their Hawaiian martini and the molted chocolate dessert. Both were excellent!
It had been a while since we had been to a Roy's and we were not disappointed. The server/services was exceptional and the food was incredible. We were dining with new friends/business associates and it was convivial and very comfortable for us to talk and get to know each other. I had Salmon, the bbq ribs were excellent appetizers, the salads were fresh tomatoes (that actually tasted like tomatoes), and the deserts were split four ways!!!
I was nervous about bringing my picky eater kids, but they loved their chicken strips and salmon. The bacon truffle mac and cheese was great for them too. It was the first time I really saw them rave about their dinner! Of course my husband and my dinner was phenomenal as usual. I've never had anything I didn't love at Roy's. The chocolate molten cake is a must.
The food and cocktails were really good. Our server, Suki, and her partner (I can't remember his name, darn it) gave us excellent service and were very attentive. We always forget that Roy's has such a great Happy Hour menu but we are hoping to remember in the future so we can go and enjoy it.
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.
