Once again, Roy's delivered a top-notch dining experience - from a warm, "Ohana" welcome to exceptional service and delicious cuisine. We mentioned that we were celebrating my wife's birthday (was not trying to make a big deal) - but Kal Harris (Managing Partner) and Peter (Floor Manager) took it upon themselves to make it a truly memorable experience! From perfect, custom-made martinis to a complementary dessert - it was an A+ experience. Also - thanks to Chelf Lan for the delectable Blackened Hamachi - one of the best things we have ever had! Thanks to our friends at Roy's Tampa!! And - if you are on the fence debating where to celebrate a special occasion or just enjoy a first-class, subdued dining experience - go for Roy's!

Roy's is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions because of the extra attention the staff gives you. However, Father's Day brunch was way too expensive! For our two brunch entrees, steak and eggs and a lobster and shrimp omelette, it was $83 ($99 inc. tip)! The food was good, but not delicious and I certainly wouldn't have taken my husband had I known it would be that pricey.

We took my husband's Aunt out for her birthday dinner. She had to be up early so she didn't want to be out late. I wanted it to be somewhere nice because she got dressed nice and was excited to get out. We were so happy with the whole experience.

Another great experience!
Once again, Roy's hit all their marks! Attentive service, delicious food, and a genuine "Ohana" vibe. We've been dining at Roy's for 6 years and have not been disappointed once. While everything on the menu is superb, don't be afraid to ask for something specific to your tastes, particularly with their sushi. Roy's only offers the very freshest fish such as hamachi, salmon, tuna - and they can make custom rolls if they are not too busy. What's on the menu, though, is exceptional - especially the hamachi roll with jalapeno! A special thanks to Kal and Chad as well as all the staff - Peter, Clay, Joe, Aaron, Bianca, Crystal.

Way overpriced for the experience. Everything was just okay
Perfect date night spot.
The food and service was great. The manager Chad and Peter both had came by and asked how everything was. The bartenders Aaron and Clay were right on point. We feel very welcome every time we dine at Roy's.
Overall the food and service was excellent.
Special attention to detail such as little touches for the birthday was a very welcome and outstanding presentation by the team. Picture to take away was unexpected. Overall the food, ambience, service and people made the experience very enjoyable. If you like an oriental touch outstanding. I would recommend to anyone.

The food and service were, as usual, excellent. However, there has been a substantial price increase and it is no longer worth the trip for the money spent.
Great food.... Shame About the Recruiter
Always liked Roy's. Picked tonight at short notice based on reputation. The lady working the maitre de/greeter was dreadfully miserable, and everyones guests and employees experienced it. The server worked hard, and the food doesn't disappoint. But first impressions are important.

The butterfish was amazing and my wife ahi tuna was perfect. The only real negative was that it took way too long for the server to bring a glass of wine and a scotch to the table. Everything else was virtually flawless and our experience was pretty good.

Sat at the sushi bar. Chef Lan was very sociable yet professional. He offered excellent suggestions based upon type of food we wanted and tastes. Awesome experience AGAIN at Roy's.

DO NOT GO FOR MOTHER'S DAY BRUNCH
Coffee was served cold. Had to ask for lemons and limes for our water at least 4 times. Sticky buns served cold and hard. Took 2 hours to get our food, 2 1/2 hours to get out. The fruit salad was served warm. For 4 people the bill was over $200.00. Ridiculous! The manager came by and apologized for the wait but didn't offer anything for our inconvenience.

For the price, the food was disappointing. The lobster and crab omelet had one piece of lobster claw and two pieces of shrimp with spinach for $50 with greasy potatoes with green and red peppers. Really. One small over cooked pancake for $10. Very disappointing. I expected better.

Sweetest most tender lobster tail I've had. Really awesome seasoning on the Edamame. Really tender rib eye, and probably the best Moscow Mule I've had in a long time.
ROY'S FISH IS FANTASTIC!!
ON A RECENT VISIT TO ROY'S, MY EXPERIENCE WAS TERRIFIC!!! THE SERVICE WAS GREAT AND THE FOOD NEVER DISAPPOINTS. MY BUTTERFISH WAS INCREDIBLY FLAVORFUL. MY GUEST WAS A FIRST TIME DINER, AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED HIS DINNER. HE IS ANXIOUS TO RETURN!!
The food is great
The menu is very different, I love trying new foods. Everything is always good. I recommend the Pineapple Upside down cake for dessert.
Roy's of Tampa - Excellente......
Roy's of Tampa was a great find. I wanted to surprise my wife with a romantic dinner for our anniversary on short notice. The menu was exquisite, adventurous and the cocktails were phenomenal. There were unique drinks for every course and a fine selection of wines. Ambiance was energetic and service very hospitable. The only thing we could have enjoyed further, would be some tropical trees/ foliage and possibly tiki torches or hanging candle light. We plan to check out other locations when we can spend an entire evening. Roy's would certainly be a great spot for a special group event, as well. In my opinion, if finances are of concern, you may want to plan it for when it is not, to fully enjoy the menu, and the event.

waitress was nothing special. Had to wait approximately 35-40 minutes, between appetizer \, main course and dessert
Good food slow service
I took my daughters to Roy's to celebrate a recent scholarship pageant victory and a star student award each of my daughters won. We booked the early 6pm reservation. It was very quiet and we were the few of the only tables occupied at this time. We enjoyed the food and its presentation, however, our waiter was not too attentive to our orders. Between the our drink order and food order there were 15-20 minute gaps which seemed like an eternity. When I thought I was going to have to pay with cash and just leave, the waiter showed up to receive my debit card. I would still give this restaurant another try.
this place was good. i have the short ribs and they were tasty. my fiance had the mac and cheese and she really liked it. i woudl recommend thi place to anyone in the area.
Gotta Love Roy's
My wife and I met a friend for a casual/fun dinner and Roy's was perfect for us. Service was attentive yet not obtrusive, food was excellent but not pricey and the total experience very pleasing to all three of us.
Enjoyed our meal
First time eating there and we will return. Overall enjoyable meal.
Always like Roy's
Went there for their Spring Three Course special, It was OK, But not as enjoyable as The Winter Three Course special which we enjoyed more than once. But I don't think We will repeat the Spring special. The salmon was not as good as the Winter, uncooked or barely cooked veg on the top which was not tasty, The worst all was the dessert, It was very hard, Can't believe offered by Roy's.
