One of the best restaurants to visit! I went for a birthday dinner and one of the private dining directors, Megan Marumoto, was so much help! She was very kind and went through every details with me before my visit. The appetizer, main dish, and the dessert all together were fascinating!

Delicious food, thoughtful service (although lobster came later than the steak), dined outdoor due to Covid so noise was expected. Looking forward to going back!

Great place to eat during covid dine in restrictions. We were sat on the patio with amazing service and amazing tasting food. Price wasn’t cheap but I actually felt I got what I paid for. Roys didn’t disappoint ten years ago and first time trying it since then and they didn’t disappoint this time, even after a decade of time has passed.

My daughter and I enjoyed our dinner at Roy’s Anaheim on Monday evening. We made a reservation via Open Table, greeted upon arrival and seated outside promptly. Our server was very nice and welcoming. We ordered Lobster potstickers, a sushi roll and a salad to share as starters. I had a Mango Mojito and my daughter had the Island Sugar Cane. For dinner my daughter had the filet - medium rare and I had the seared Ahi. Everything was absolutely delicious! We both really enjoyed the sushi roll!! One of the best I have had! It was an enjoyable evening and we definitely will return!!

I never the waiter after he took our order, until the very end when he brought the bill. Didn't even ask to validate parking. Customer service was lacking compared to coming here many times before.

Have been numerous times. Not sure what happened this particular night. The food was not fresh, the produce was wilted. The apps were under seasoned.

We dined at a table for four outdoors. Fortunately, even with Fall being here, it was pleasantly warm and comfortable. Our server was excellent. Traffic on the adjacent street can be a little loud but can be 'tuned out' to the point of being unnoticed after a while. We like the in-door dining accommodations as well, but decided to 'play it safer' outdoors due to the virus. We were celebrating a birthday which was quite nice. All of the dishes were wonderfully prepared, as usual. Our only point of disappointment was that they ran out of their lobster entree, which two of us were looking forward to all day. The restaurant substituted scallops, which turned out to be just as delicious as the lobster. This lobster shortage (due to the pandemic) will definitely not dissuade us from our usual once-per-month dining experience at Roy's.

I checked in for my opentable reservation; I got an email. Twenty minutes after I checked in, the restaurant cancelled my reservation to prohibit me getting points even though we were there for 2 hours and had dinner.

They were so accommodating and gave my granddaughter a cheese quesadilla plate right away. After our delicious meals of Misoyaki Butterfish and Short Ribs they brought her some ice cream with spreckles. We had an awesome time as usual.

We asked for a “nice quiet” table and received the table directly next to the kitchen exit despite many open tables. The experience was just “OK” from there including desperately looking for wine refills and thanking our waiter for the birthday wishes even though it wasn’t anyone’s birthday. Perhaps the gent was overworked but not at all the experience you want for a $50 tip on a two person meal (total was about $320). The interior is dated and the menu is the same.

There are a LOT of better options for the price range.

I recently took my gf here for her bday dinner and i was kinda disappointed. It didn’t take long to be seated which was nice. I know due to Covid they usually have the special menu with bday greeting. Usually they bring a dessert with a happy birthday on the plate and i was thinking maybe they would do it if i ordered a dessert for her and it came with no decor. The restaurant was like dodger stadium with the lighting. I ordered the braised short rib and it was good and my gf ordered the katsu chicken and the plate sure wasn’t good. I’ve been to the Pasadena location before that place is wonderful. They should have kept that one open and shut this one down.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. At first I was a little disappointed by the ambiance. It was too bright inside and just felt like a casual setting. I was so excited to finally be able to sit inside a restaurant. The outdoor seating actually looked better.
But, once the server introduced himself and the food was served, we were sold. My old fashioned was delicious and the macadamia nut encrusted mahi mahi was fantastic. Everything was piping hot and delicious. Great service. My only complaint was the ambiance.

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Roy’s and had an amazing experience. We are frequent diners of Roy’s and they never disappoint. The food and service are always exceptional, and the staff is always very welcoming and attentive.
Roy’s is one of our all-time favorites.
