Roy's Orlando Ratings and Reviews
I've eaten at this and other Roy's many times because my wife and daughters are fans. I think the food is just so-so and the prices excessive. If I'm going to pay Roy's prices, there are better seafood restaurants. In any case, the meal started out ok. The restaurant was busy but not slammed. Yet we waited and waited for our entrees. When the entrees finally arrived, the waiter had placed the order wrong on one of them. He apologized and offered to comp a dessert. That he actually never comped a dessert is fine. We weren't seeking free food. That he charged us for both the incorrect and the correct entrees was unforgivable. If I have my way, I will never return to Roy's.
Food was just as good as it always is. Service was, however, sub-par. Server somewhat inattentive and failed to take everyone’s drink order. Then failed to put in one of the drink orders after they were all taken. The restaurant was not busy, but the kitchen was VERY slow. Nearly an hour to get our food. Server seemed perturbed by this as well. First time I have been disappointed by this chain (have dined in Oahu, Maui, Las Vegas, Chicago, Orlando before).
The service was terrible. We arrived & was seated promptly. However, we sat for a good 20-25 minutes without water or our drink order taken. Besides being parched for some time, when I did order a bottle of prosecco, every time the Waitress poured she'd spill a good amount. My guest didn't have enough for a third glass probably for that reason. After waiting for our drinks in the first place, our waitress did ask if the manager came by, and he didn't.
Obviously the place has poor management, and the service shows.
I've been to Roy's a few times years ago, and never did I have such a disappointing experience.
Next time I'll think twice before spending $150 at this restaurant.
I had received an email the day before from the restaurant promoting a feature but they "didn't have it" It was a ramen dish and they didn't have the noodles so they did finally serve it to us with a different noodle but gave us no compensation for the varied dish. I won't be returning to Roys anytime soon!
I am used to the Tampa restaurant which I love and frequent for special occasions or just when I want a fantastic meal, nice atmosphere and the customer service is above and beyond.
I have also visited the Orlando restaurant a few times and have been impressed with the consistency of how my expectations are met.
Roy's is such a unique dining experience! Even if you are not a seafood fan there are many alternative options.
I always choose the Seared Ahi Tuna entree but I have gone with family and friends that have preceded non-seafood items and they have always been impressed.
In my opinion Roy's particularly is a fantastic choice for special occasions, business events, or a romantic date.
We love Roy's and have been there many times. But this time we decided to go for Magical dining, and it supposed to be prix fix price for each person. By the time bill came, we found out everything was charged itemized and they exceed $35 fixed price. The server was pretty handful with big party, and we didn't have time to wait for it....so we paid! Just thought that it shouldn't be customers' responsibility to check the system for pricing issue.
Our server was outstanding! One of our couples arrived late and she helped us coordinate the timing of the food so that they got their 1st course immediately and then our entrees arrived together. She was also friendly, funny, and made the stress of our friends being 30 mins late completely evaporate.
We selected Roy's to celebrate a milestone birthday and was disapointed at the noise level in the main dining area. We were expecting a different ambiance, similar to what we remembered from years ago when we celebrated our 30th anniversary. The noise level of the music pushed the guests to talk louder and louder. It was very distracting. The food, however, did not disappoint as we were all members of the clean plate club.
Perfection! Could have not made our birthday celebration more special. We always go to Roy's when we are in Orlando. It is always special. No matter what you must try the short rib. It is unbelievably good. It's moist, falls apart and I love when I get a piece with charred ends. You must try the red snapper too. My husband and Mother both got it and it was moist, flaky and cooked perfectly. I was nibbling on my husband's tempura broccoli. It was sweet like a nice snack. My wedge was good but I wish I had gotten my Dad's watermelon salad that was amazing! I had a bite of my niece's children's meal and even with that, amazing. Service was wonderful. Can't wait for our next visit.
The service was the most remarkable thing about this experience. From the very beginning, the waiter was slightly, inexplicably hostile, seeming resentful of us being there. He was annoyed we were not immediately ready with a drink order within a few seconds of sitting down, and returned to our table less than a minute later, before even having an opportunity to consider anything. He visited our table repeatedly, every 2-3 minutes, to ask if we were done, despite the fact that we clearly were not. It was the type of rushing one might expect at a theme park restaurant, but not an upscale, half-empty restaurant like this. We were having a great time and enjoying our conversations, and he would stand at the table, glaring at us until we could ask, yet again, whether he could remove plates with food still on them. He literally did not give us two minutes to think about dessert after listing them for us, and was especially perturbed to discover we had veered off into a conversation rather than having come up with an answer.
The lobster tail was certainly better than a restaurant like Longhorn or Red Lobster, but does not even begin to compare with the Palm. The accompanying filet was adequate and cooked properly, but the flavoring was not memorable and the few accompanying vegetables bland. The prices were comparable to upscale restaurants on Sand Lake Drive, but did not seem worth it for the food or the experience.
They had us in and out in an hour -- including appetizers and dessert! -- which again is consistent with theme park restaurants, but not the level of service one expects when trying to spend a relaxing evening at an upscale locale.
The torches outside are a nice touch, but you don't have to go in to enjoy those.
Heard about this place through a co worker . My girlfriend is a big seafood and sushi lover and this location catered to that so I decided to take her . Server was nice , had a few questions about the menu and she couldn't really answer them . Specialty cocktails weren't good at all , so I switched over to my usual. Portions are small , as expected . I ordered the pan roasted chicken which wasn't bad just not filling what so ever . My girlfriends chefs special with the ahi didn't come with any of the vegetables listed ( she got over it ) and the server unfortunately had to apologize every time she walked by either because they were out of something or because the salads and entree didn't come as described . Overall it was ok . But can tell you to spend 200 dollars on a meal that was not only not filling and cocktails that neither of us enjoyed it was kind of disappointing .
We had a great experience last time we went to Roy's. This time we were not happy. We waited over 1:30 min for our food. They said they were short staffed in the kitchen. We waited for 1 hour for our son's chicken fingers. Def should not have taken that long. The manager did offer us dessert but at that point we were so tired and told her we wanted a discount on the check instead.
I have frequented several Roys' Restaurants and enjoyed it there on all occasions. The latest dinner was at Roy's in Orlando FL. on Saturday July 22nd. It was very good. Although it was either very busy or short staffed or both, there was a little waiting at times. We were in no hurry so it did not really bother us. I will add that the staff, specifically waitress Suki and mananget Brian went out of there way to compensate for the wait which was almost not necessary. We were in no hurry and we're enjoying ourselves regardless. Brien expedited the bottle of wine for our table, and Suki made sure we had edname at the table while waiting. Also, which I appreciated Suki substituted Bok Choy for me st no additions charge. Although I am a medical doctor,I grew up in the catering and restaurant business and can validate good service and food. Thank you.
This was once a great restaurant... one of my favorites for many years. However Roy sold all his US restaurants about a year ago and they are going downhill rapidly.
The signature Hawaii Martini was cool and diluted. Our appetizer boat was so different... a couple of skewers of dry meat, two tough ribs and couple of cuts off of a roll.
No more beautiful spring rolls!
The butterfish was very strong smelling which we all thought was a red flag.
Our guest had a part from the coffee maker in his coffee cup with hardly an apology. The usually great pineapple upside down cake was... well... I'm not sure what it was.
They even removed the wine display to make room for another row of tables!
Truly to see one of your favorite restaurants go drain the drain is sad. Roy needs to buy these back quickly before they fold
