Unique, healthy and tasty food with excellent service. Will go back!
Celebrated a friend’s birthday during the lunch hours.
I forgot how good the butterfish was. So classic and delicious.
Marvelous experience on all fronts!
Celebrate Fathers Day with the family and the food was delicious. Really liked the brunch menu with one inclusive price (appetizer + main course).
We love Rous when we're in Hawaii, excited to have the chance to eat at one on the mainland. Rous in La Jolla was awt, great food, great service and an amazing 🍷 and cocktails list!
Roy’s is always has great food.
My mother and I ordered the entrée in which you get four different types of fish. It was excellent for sharing. We also got sushi to start which was good as well. Service was great. Would recommend.
We were celebrating our babymoon with our 2.5 year old. They brought special stuff for our toddler and kept him happy and entertained. The service was impeccable and the butter fish is something I am never disappointed with. Yummy and awesome to have a little special care given when you are celebrating something special!!! Would go back in an instant!
Roy's never disappoints and I will continue to go here cause the food and service is on point. Thanks!
Great food; excellent service. Will definitely come back
We were warmly welcomed and had generally good service.
But, the food was of lower caliber than expected. Almost all the sauces and glazes were extraneously-sweet, and my udon dish was extremely salty. And oddly, perhaps most unexpectedly, the white rice was hard and undercooked.
Overall, while all our dishes were pretty and well-plated, there were significant deficiencies in attention to the actual taste of the foods that were being presented.
So happy that they are open for lunch. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is beautiful. What a wonderful day.
Try the 1988 cocktail - strong and delicious! The butterfish is the best fish dish I've ever had and they gave us such great portions this last time we went, which made our anniversary all the better. Great service and relaxing environment. Great for a special occasion or just a night of fine dining.
Very enjoyable anniversary dinner. Food was excellent and the staff wonderful and attentive.
Service was good. They recalled it being my birthday!!!
We were happy with that, but the food wasn’t as great as I thought it might be. I had scallops, small but tasty. Nothing else on the scallop plate was interesting though. The lobster bisque read light on the curry, but it’s definitely curry heavy. It was good but not excellent. All in all a decent experience.
Wonderful, knowledgeable server, Derek, helped make it fun. Had tofu for one, butterfish for the other. A nice sushi roll appetizer, and a tasty wedge salad. Rot’s Is our go to place for birthdays and anniversaries, all over the west. Oh, and a nice treat for a birthday, they provided a yummy chocolat3 souffle
Food was okay, we sat by the doorway, servers seem to be rushing us. They brought out the entrees while we are not done eating the appetizers while eating entree they kept trying to collect the plates. Seriously felt like we are in a Chinese food chain. We are not coming back and I can't recommend this place either. It's not worth the money you'll spend here.
Hope this improves, rather disappointing. Great prime rib. Crab cakes good.
Had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. I hav celiac disease and our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful in indicating my gf choices.
Go Wednesdays for the half priced wine list and try something out of the ordinary.
Great meal as usual. Certainly pricey but I never regret it and know for special occasions it’s one of my ‘go-to’ places. Service was excellent, Pat was a star. Only miscue to mention was I asked for a quiet location if they had one (check) and they mentioned that as we were seated, and was there for a birthday which wasn’t conveyed to Pat but was all resolved during our conversation. All in all great experience and we will definitely be back!!
The dining room was not exceptionally busy, but I think that only one server was working, as every step of the dining process was pretty slow.
The food was above average. The bourbon pour that I received was generous, but should have been for the $15 price tag (that equates to $390 per bottle, with markup).
Add to that a charge of $3.50 for a coke, and any good will you had for the restaurant ebbs significantly.
One word for my $80 dinner - “meh”.
Both the food and service was between very good and excellent. However, I felt the prices were a bit on the high side.
Roy’s of La Jolla was great ! Service impeccable! Our waiter was so nice and attentive ! Ambiance perfect ! Great place for a good lunch and early dinner , you can talk and hear each other!!
Manager was up and about going around and checking on every one ! A great place compared to the Roy’s in Pasadena that needs to improve their services ! Will for sure recommend it and will be back !!
Hands down the absolute worse Roys experience ever.
Ive eaten at Roys for years in California, Las Vegas and Hawaii. The restaurant was not even a 1/4 of the way full and it took over an hour to receive our Luke warm meals. Makes sense no one was there. Kitchen staff was a mess and looked understaffed. Feel sorry for the waiters.
Such a horrible experience that it will be a long time before I go back to any Roys locations.
Shame Ive always loved Roys!
I have eaten at Roy's before in Hawaii and I wasn't very impressed especially for the price paid for the meal so I was pleasantly surprised when the food at this Roy's was found to be very good. The service was also good. The manager (I presume) kept passing by to see how we were doing although he was not intrusive.
Amazing experience! The service was great and the food was very flavorful.
Food was amazing, but service was slow even though restaurant wasn’t busy. Fortunately we were not in a hurry, but we were super hungry and had to wait 45 min for our food. Once it came all was good again.
We went there for lunch to celebrate my birthday. The waitress was not very friendly but most importantly the food was bad. My sister ordered the mahi mahi and it was salty. The braised beef was dried. After all, we spoke with the manager, she credited us back the entire meal.
I have eaten here many times. I like the butterfish and short ribs combo. My short ribs were a complete piece off fat which is unusual so I complained. They were kind enough to ask to remake it which I declined. They took the cost of the entire meal off the bill. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised. Usually it is an excellent restaurant with excellent food but we went for dinner on Easter night so that may have played into it. Although they only had about five tables to serve which was strange. I guess everyone went for Easter brunch.
My wife and my 80 year old parents went for my 60th birthday have an amazing night. Introduced my parents to sushi. They will be spoiled because nobody makes it better than Roy’s.
Prime rib was dry and mostly over cooked for rare. No Au jus available. Other sauces undesirable.
Mash potatoes were standard.
Pineapple upside cake was worth having.
Nice $20 gift card to return.
Great Food for Easter Sunday!!
Poor customer service with no interest to accommodate table request. Staff was young and lacked the maturity to take good care of guests. Worst experience in over 40 years of restaurant dinning...need management and staff overall haul....
Good food and great service.
I used to dine at Roy’s all the time in Las Vegas , unfortunately they closed here. I always enjoyed there food . Also I eat in Waikiki and was great . Here unfortunately the service was poor . The waiter was unpleasant, and got us wrong dishes . My fish was burnt.
Service and food are always top notch. Keeps us coming back.
Service was great- they go above and beyond for Special occasions. I celebrated my birthday and they had a cute congrats card on the table and we were provided w/ a complimentary dessert that was delicious! We were disappointed with our calamari appetizer (probably the worse calamari I have had) it was a bunch of almost burnt little crispy things- no real meat to it and it tasted like burnt fried crispies left over at the end of a frying s batch of sonething. PF Changs are way better and cheaper. Anyways, the rest of the meal was delicious but the portions are tiny and EXPENSIVE and u have to pay for any extra sides. For a party of four we paid around $325. I think for the value it is way overpriced but all and all I would return again for a special occasion. That is what special occasions are for- splurging more then usual. Hope this helps...
Always a good meal. One of my favorite restaurants.
