Roy's Tampa Ratings and Reviews
I was told the restaurant was upscale enough to bring my mother for her 80th with my 92 year old father. We were dressed in blazers while most guests were in shorts, polos or tacky Hawaiian shirts. The server Matt was exceptional and made the evening enjoyable.
The pineapple martinis were very good.
I ordered the Mahi Mahi lunch special.
Had to return because the rice under the fish was cold and not appetizing. The fish was just warm. Very surprised because we were the first couple there fir lunch and they were not busy at all.
They did bring me a new dish. Never saw the manager and he never apologized
We were visiting our grandchildren and we are from St Louis. So we decided to treat ourselves to lunch while they were in school
No matter which outlet of Roy's you visit, you can be assured of the same basic menu, with possible regional specialties added, with superbly prepared food. The menu is heavy on fish and seafood, but there is something for everyone in your group. Because of the high quality of the ingredients and the preparation, the prices are fairly high, especially for meat dishes, but the results are worth it. There are so excited differences in the "niceties" - the Waikiki and Kauai restaurants offered an amuse-bouche of edamame , whereas the Tampa outpost did not. A reasonable wine list and delicious specialty cocktails - try the Mai Tai - in a comfortable venue, with terrific service, make this an excellent choice for a special occasion.
Found to be marginal for price and service. Our waitress had too many tables and we had to ask for drinks and waited atleast 15 min after we sat to get drinks or any service at all. Probably will not go back. For this type of restaurant and the $$ we spent, almost $1000.00 for a group of 8, we felt cheated!!
It was Valentine's Day and the restaurant completely overbooked too many people We waited 50 minutes to be seated and of course had reservations. Our food took over an hour to be served. It was a miserable Valentines day/anniversary dinner with my wife and I !!
I'm glad you asked, I had reservations for 7;30 but did not sit down until 8:45. The appetizers came out on time, and were very good, however we waited another 45 mins for our meal to come. My lobster was overcooked and overall, not impressed. It was valentines day, and I was trying to impress my date. I failed miserably. I will not be back. The food was very expensive, and i feel like I should have taken her to outback!
Let me start off by saying, I typically don't give bad reviews...but our experience on Valentines Day was very disappointing. We were hardly greeted by our server who offered to fill our waters (thought that was solely his job by the way he approached us). When he finally returned and asked if there was anything we would like to drink besides water is when we realized he was our waiter. After placing our order (which we were forced into a 4 course meal which none of the food was all that great), we waited almost 30 minutes to receive our appetizers which were served to us cold. We waited another 15 to receive our soups/salads, and another 20 to receive the main course. Dessert was mediocre at best.
The service was unacceptable. He barely even acknowledged me and my husband...we weren't asked how any of our food turned out and barely re-filled our drinks without us having to ask.
I've been to Roy's in the past and had a better experience...but this is completely unacceptable service (particularly on Valentines Day when you are forced into a 4 course meal and spending $150).
We will not be back.
Waiter was rude and didn't know or understand the menu. He also got really nasty with us and made a scene himself about the receipt not being accurate. Also the set menu was not clear when we booked which had nothing from what we normally eat there. Food was not bad just didn't have what we wanted. With paying almost $200 for 2, you would think we could order normal menu items. Would go back but not for any special occasion or holiday. Step it up Roys, you're better than that!
Love Roy's the food is usually unbelievable.
We go at least once a month and love it
It was very busy Valentine's Day did not receive the service we usually do
but they're unbelievable butterfish was totally over cooked
Not the best of nights
