Singular Experience, Try Once But No Need To Repeat – My sister and I decided to try Roy's a while back. Our server provided a 10 minute dissertation of the menu (we both can read) and it seemed as though all the servers in the restaurant were waiting on our table. It felt like 5 different servers were assigned to our table. The portions were inadequate for the price. After we were served and our server made sure everything was satisfactory you would have thought we were the only ones in the restaurant. We had to flag down another employee to get our check 20 minutes after we had finished our meal. Very disappointing service. Worth going once just to check out the unusual menu items but not worth a second visit.
Roy's has gone down hill – Roy's used to be great. I've eaten there numerous times. The last few have been poor, however. The servers are "over-trained" to hard sell. It doesn't matter what you want. It's more important what they have to sell that night. Maybe yesterday's fresh fish? The food is all right but their prices have gotten too high for the value. It's just not a $100 a head place anymore. Too bad.
My absolute favorite restaurant. – Truly, I cannot see how anyone would not like Roy's. The ambience is modern and elegant, the waiters and hostesses super nice and polite (everytime you get up to go to the bathroom, someone comes to your table to refold your napkin!), and the food...well, the food is amongst the best I've ever had. The *only* downside would be the price, however it's upscale so what do you expect. Don't go in there with a dinner for two expecting to spend less than $70- however, it is worth it. I got the prix fixe menu. The appetizer was a sampler with three selections that were delicious , the main courses (one a beef shortrib, the other bass) were both fantastic (the beef was one of the most tender I've ever had), and the chocolate souffle for dessert was worth the trip alone. The service was excellent, with extremely knowledgeable and personable waiters. The restuarant itself is beautifully decorated. I will definately be coming here again and again.
Overrated and disappointing – As a dinner party of five celebrating a birthday we reserved a table several days in advance specifically requesting a table out of the main traffic areas. What we were provided was totally the opposite. Each passing waiter seem to bump into at least one of us. In addition there was no lighting above our table so reading the menu was next to impossible. If you want a quiet or romantic place to celebrate forget Roy's. We literally has to shout to each other to be heard above the unbelievable noise of the restaurant. The food was average. Polynesian? Possibly, unless you've actually tasted real polynesian food in the islands. Drinks were good, albeit pricey. Service fair. We will not be back.
great time – Dined on Aug. 31, 2003. Arrived and was seated immediately. Exceptional service, large wine selection, excellent meal, fabulous desert. Prices were appropriate for the atmosphere. I loved it and will definitely return..
Okay – We were looking for a place to eat and decided to give Roy's a try. Service was good, food was okay, but not in large portions (good for most vacationers in hotels I guess). Overall the dining was good, but with all the other choices in the Orlando area, I don't think I'll return.
Decent but Dissapointing – Recently stopped by Roy's of Orlando during a vacation and while the food was ok, the overall experience needed help. My fish-combo of Salmon and Ahi was a bit bland and I felt like I was dining in a converted steak-house. Having been to the Roy's in SF (and my companions had dined at Roy's in NYC) we all felt the food was not up to snuff. A decent choice in Orlando but needs to improve.
Fantastic Fish – Super fantastic food, off the beaten path. Menu focuses on fish, with Pan-Asian Pacific style. Started out of Hawaii, also on Pebble Beach. Casual or dressy, comfortable atmosphere. Great bar if you are dining alone. Showed up late and still got a great meal.
HELLO... TALK ABOUT PERFECT – What an amazing restaurant! The food is fantastic, as was the service. I am going back this month and will UPDATE. The sparerib appetizer is a must. However do they make it and make it so good. The icing on the cake, is why of course, the chocolate souffle. OH NELLY!
