Roy's Orlando Ratings and Reviews

In town for the weekend and have been to Roy's at other locations. Menu has a good selection of seafood - Roy's standards. Highly recommend the andouille sausage crusted red snapper and definitely have to do the souffle.
Service was good, the waitstaff rotates and everyone keeps an eye on your table.

I recommend Roy's on Sand Lake Rd in Orlando
Creative cocktails, good prix fixe menu, good wine list, friendly staff
taste the food, the side dish may be over salted
Get there early for a booth
New: have to ask for edamami .. not automatic, but came out just right, not oversalted
The veg side under the osso bucco was good texture but very salty
Our waitress cherfully asked whether she could correct it .. a nice touch although we did not take advantage of it .. hard to re-do a large batch of veggies
(guess the sous chef thought everyone dumps a ton of salt on dishes
without tasting it first)
Still, we like Roy's and we'll be back!

For the price the food was horrible, the pork stuff right with crab cakes, was tough and no pork taste, just tasted like crab. Soup was watery, shrimp dish was terrible. The best was the dessert, chocolate souffle. Will not return. Over priced.

The only problem I have is when I have made a reservation and there a lot of tables
available the hostess sits us along the back wall. This enables one of us to stare at
a wall the rest of the evening. WRONG. I know i can correct her but that's not the point.
Is a Great Filet mignon there.

We are dine at various Roy's around the country when on traveling on business since there are none near our home in norther NJ. And we dined at this one on 2 consecutive nights last week. This one does not stack up to the others we've been to. On the 1st night, we were entertaining business guests. My dinner selection was suddenly NOT available when most of a large group seated nearby were served it. The suggested substitute (by the manager just after they were served and long after our order was taken)--grilled shrimp instead of lobster tail with my filet--was less than inspiring. But the the other 3 people in my party really enjoyed their entrees (including my husband who got that last lobster tail). And our server, Suki, was great (5 stars) so we went back the next night to give this Roy's location another try.
BAD IDEA. I had read that the back of the restaurant was really cold. And that is were we were seated on the 2nd night and even with a fleece jacket on, it was COLD. And, again, my 1st choice entree--the Wahgu steak--was out of stock. But the server did not know that when he took my order AGAIN. The substitute recommendation of snapper was good, but I was not handed the menu when the suggestion was made and I forgot that it came with deep fried okra. I do not like okra and commented about it to the waiter when my entree was served. But no offer for a substitute side was made.
Most of the food we were served was "really good" to "great" (except the chocolate "souffle" which is pretty ordinary lava cake). But the stocking issues on menu items 2 consecutive nights was the deal breaker for me. There are a lot of great restaurants on Sand Lake Rd. And we dined at several of them the week we were in Orlando. I suggest that you do the same.

Sat down to a fork that still had food on it. Gross! Filet was grisly and had to be sent back. Second one was OK, but overdone and tough, and the potatoes runny and vegetables undercooked. Very disgusted that they offered a pre-ordered soufflé, which I ordered, only to find it was a chocolate lava cake. When I asked, the manager said it was not a "traditional" soufflé - WOW. It was not a soufflé at all - very bad answer for a high priced, gourmet restaurant. It appears this restaurant has gone way downhill, and that is sad considering Roy's good name and typically excellent dining. I will not recommend the Orlando Roy's to anyone. They did comp part of the meal for my problem with the filet, which was appropriate.

Food very good if a little top end price wise compared to other "fine dining" restaurants on Dr Phillips but the flavour combinations would always bring me back. Service could have been more personal and attentive but perfectly good. Would recommend for foodies or couples not for families. I will eat here again.

I hosted several Clients for a Business Dinner. I've had a good experience at this Roy's prior to this visit. Service was slow. Both with appetizers and entrees. Seating was slow. Restaurant seemed understaffed for the evening's level of diners. My Butterfish portion was tiny. Seemed like half or less of a typical portion. I would have appreciated a more experienced Waiter to assist with ordering appetizers for the Table as well as steering me to a desired wine. Seemed like the staff on duty that evening were not well trained to assist me in ensuring a Great Evening for my Clients. maybe an off night (Monday) but with a large Convention in town the following day staffing level should have been higher.

We've been going to Roy's restaurants for a long time happy to discover this location , short drive from International Drive. The service and food were excellent. Reservations were made and we were immediately greeted and seated upon our arrival. Our server was friendly attendant .
We were pleasantly surprised they included the Butterfish on their menu , absolutely cooked to perfection
It made for a memorable evening and would definitely recommend this restaurant for a fabulous evening

A wonderful evening with friends from Holland. The food was amazing - I tasted several dishes and all were delicious. The complimentary edamame with a spicy salt was a hit with all of us, but especially with me and the 14-year-old son of our friends. David, our waiter, was friendly, attentive and helpful - would definitely request him on a return. Finally, the pineapple upside-down cake and chocolate lava cake - both prepared fresh while we dined were alone worth a trip to this delightful restaurant!

Excellent service. The macadamia crusted magi magi was a generous portion but it was quite dry and there was not enough lobster cream sauce to compensate. Asparagus was good but the 3 slices of boiled potato was uninspired. Disappointing for $39. My husbands selection of lobster scallops and shrimps was superb!

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
