Best restaurant in Waikiki.
didn’t get the table by the window like we asked for but it was ok
Terrific our first visit and was a memorable one
I was surprised, after making reservation many days in advance, that we received such a awkwardly placed table. The food was very good, but what we came for was the pineapple upside down cake that we had at the Turtle Bay location, and the Waikiki location's version was very different.
The excellent menu is only overmatched by the awesome service!
Really just mediocre. Service decent, but over-explained in a weird way. Yes, we do know what edamame are and what tartare means. Outdoor seating accessible as a walkway, so people were walking by our table to the bar. Just did not feel like the food or service were special at all. Had dined before but it has lost its luster. Too many other amazing food choices in Oahu to take time here.
Second visit in two days and treated like royalty. Amazing restaurant with fabulous food and second to none service.
We ate outside because the dining room is very noisy. Food was delicious - every dish exceeded our expectations, even for my vegetarian wife. Very friendly and helpful service as well.
excellent food...did not disappoint! service was great.
I'll never come back again
An excellent meal from Roy's Waikiki. First time at this particular Roy's. Service and food was very good. The appetizer sampler for two was excellent.
Gaby is an awesome waitress. Excellent service!
Great food and service
Best meal we had in Hawaii! Had the classic tasting menu with the Macadamia crusted Mongchon and it was fabulous. Attentive service. We ate outside so can’t speak to the ambiance/noise level inside. Drinks were delicious as well.
Best meal in a VERY long time. Fish was exquisite! Staff was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly.
We were traveling on our honeymoon and picked Roy's for a romantic date. The food was amazing and the wait staff was the perfect amount of attentive- not too pushy but somehow always there when you needed them. We had mentioned on our reservation that we were on our honeymoon and they gave us a special dessert on the house that was incredibly sweet.
Our waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu and was able to steer us towards house specialties.
Food was excellent as usual but there was too much noise. I would have asked for an outside table if I knew how noisy it would be. The menu was large and took a while to read through. It has an interesting mix of western and Japanese style of menu, and I found it challenging to decide whether to order Japanese style or western. The service was just OK, but they did add some extra attention since it was our anniversary. It felt a bit rushed, however.
Great birthday celebration!
Amazing food, and apetisers. been to most of the top review restaurants in oahu but definitely the best one out there.
We are visiting from Vancouver, Canada on vacation and came to Roy’s to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. Food was unbelievable and amazing value. The service was great, our server was very friendly and on top of checking in and filling our drinks. There was a very noisy group that were sitting behind us and making lots of noise but our server apologized to us at the end for the commotion which we really appreciated! I would definitely go back and highly recommend Roy’s to anyone coming to Waikiki.
Always enjoy an evening dining at Roy's really no matter where its location is, but Waikiki is one of our top favorites you can dine inside or outside or even at the bar outside. Our meal was so good we started off with apps, sanshito pork belly , fiery crab roll. Kampachi crudo, spicy rainbow nagiri, stuff just kept coming out from their oh so talented sushi chef. Our salads and mains were perfect my wife had the 85$ 4 course taste and I had the Hudson Valley Duck breast ,the small malasadas were great!, So on to dessert the Chocolate Souffle as always winner! And my brule'e was great too. All the dishes came out beautifully plated. So all in all it was a fantastic last night in Hawaii Nei ! Much Mahalo to the staff at Roy's Waikiki and to Chef Jason Ichiki🤙Aloha Mark & Mindy Guerra.
Friendly, professional service of classic dishes prepared in unique, innovative ways. We enjoyed two different fish dinners very much and the Sweet Potato Soup which was excellent.
The restaurant was beautifully decorated with prints of fish and it felt like fine dining without the stuffiness.
I ordered the Shrimp Pasta. The shrimp was ok but the pasta was very over cooked and gummy. The salad bar was excellent! I ordered the Lahaina cocktail and it was very good as well. Great beachfront view and ambience.
Such a disappointment. Food was really awful. Overpriced and not good. I have been to other Roys and loved the food. Not sure what is happening at this place but would not recommend it and definitely would not go again.
The meal was very nice. The decor is very much in need of upgrading and there was a funny smell to the place. We were placed right next to the kitchen which made it very noisey and we could not see the street at all that was disappointing as it was our last night in Honolulu. If going choose a table near the verandah or on the verandah itself. Not in a rush to go back.
Excellent food and service
Great place for an adult dinner with kids. Food is high quality and they know how to deal with families. Portions are huge so go with an appetite.
Great service and great food. But the noise level was much too loud. They should invest in an acoustic design upgrade.
We made 9:15 reservations. All the staff was on top of us trying to take our plates , forcing us to order quick and desert right away ! All because they all wanted to go home ! We ended up being last table ! We have been there before and was great! Food was very poor quality , my guess they wanted to cook quick and get us out! Not sure we will be back here again
Awesome! The food was amazing
Very well done, good waiter, nice location Enjoyed the house Chardonnay.
Service was exceptional ! Our server Lewis was extremely attentive and the service stewards were top notch. My wife and I shared several dishes with no disappointments and the pineapple upside down cake was exceptional! We will return before leaving the island.
I had the sunset menu option. The portions were smaller than I want to eat, but tasted fantastic and I was full at the end. My wife had a white fish crusted with bacon over gnocchi. It was excellent and too much for her so I got to share quite a bit.
Great Food and even better service. The noise level is a bit high however.
Roys was absolutely amazing! From the time we sat down the server was very attentive and took care of all of our needs. The food was Heaven I would go back every night if I could
Birthday- perfect as usual
Visited this location on vacation. Overall it was a good experience. But, we were seated right next to a family with a baby and young child there was a lot of disruption. There were other seating options available and that should have been offered to us.
I am always happy when I leave Roy’s Waikiki. The service is top notch and everyone is consistently on their game. I was with a friend and she had never been and thought the restaurant was impeccable. I can’t wait to go back in November.
