Great new menu items!
Roy's has a terrific lunch special. Entree, Miso soup, salad and cookies. Delicious and economical. Highly recommend.
We've always had a great time at Roy's. The service is great, and our last server, Brenda, was very friendly and attentive.
Great food — loved the Chilean sea bass! Service could have been better, though. No one came back to pour wine, or to check if we needed anything else. We had to flag down the waitress.
We enjoyed Carl very much and will ask for him in the future. Very personable and friendly. Better hang on to him!
We had a delightful server and our food was amazing as usual.
Food is different. Personally didn’t find it great but it was ok.
Food met our expectations. Very fresh and delicious. The Pineapple Turnover Cake is to die for. Our waiter took good care of us and constantly asking if there was anything else we needed. We arrived 30 min. before our reservation and were seated 15 min. earlier from our scheduled time. Our table had a greeting card with our names wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Loved it!!
Great service and food. My only complaint would be the seats. We all felt crowded.
The manager was helpful and productive. He served us.
Delicious salad - not the same old same old; The scallops were juicy and tender with a wonderful sauce and black rice. And of course the molten chocolate souffle - a great way to end any meal.
It was my ladies birthday and again everyone wished her a happy birthday. Great food as always.
Make a reservation so you don't have to wait. Well worth it.
The service is absolutely perfect! We had the special Chilean sea bass. It was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful experience
The girlfriend and I love the steaks here, but the fish entrees are the stars of the menu here at Roy’s. Today I chose the Chilean Seabass over my regular Butterfish since it’s not regularly on the menu. The Seabass was cooked perfectly, tender and flaky on the inside with a nice crispy, buttery crust on the outside. The seafood here never disappoints and always has me coming back.
There were surprisingly few gluten free options. While the server offered that the kitchen would convert many other dishes to GF, it mainly involved removing the sauces or other preparations that made the dish special. Why spend $40 on a plain protein.
It is so easy to substitute for wheat flour in sauces (corn starch, arrow root, etc), or to find GF sauces (tamari versus regular soy sauce for example).
What we ordered was very good, but the menu limitations were overly severe for the price point.
Our server Emily was engaging, delightful and professional. I noticed that my entree was lacking in spinach. Emily promptly had a side of sautéed spinach brought out very quickly.
We asked numerous questions and she was very patient in answering each of them.
We enjoyed our Roy’s dining experience.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to Roy’s. This one was terrible. Outdated, worn, and stale smelling interior. We had a butter lettuce and shrimp salad that was actually iceberg and chopped romaine lettuce with two chopped up shrimp. To add insult two of these salads and two ice teas was over $50 for lunch. Had the feel of a place on its last leg. Avoid.
Good ambiance 😘
It was pretty good-salmon was good not great-but I’ll be back. Waitress was wonderful!
I knew this restaurant was "pricey" going in... so no surprise there. But my order came out incorrectly and the amount of food I received relative to the price was outrageous! To their credit, our waitress immediately ordered the correct meal, and it tasted good. But I was expecting a mind-blowing experience for the price I knew I was going to have to pay. It was just "meh." It is a good restaurant... that's it. Don't let the fancy prices convince you otherwise.
Our food at the Roy's in Woodland Hills is consistently good. We were truly disappointed at the food in Pasadena. Sea Bass smelled fishy and was undercooked, non edible. Halibut was dry. Poke was good. NY strip steak was a little over cooked. We are Pasadena Playhouse season seat holders and were happy to discover that Roy's was walking distance. Unfortunately we won't be dining there again.
We’ve to Roy’s many times and it never disappoints us; including this one.
They were a little crowded but expected for their excellent service and food!!
Menu was excellent and the food was was cooked so very well. The entire table raved about their food selections and how they were prepare.
I'm a long time fan but this visit was definitely lacking. All my past visits to this Roy's were stellar. This time, the food was subpar and the service was even worse. Our waiter completely forgot about us on the patio. I had to flag him down and by then it was too late to order my favorite dessert which takes 20 minutes to make. I received better food and service from PF Changs and Yard House down the street. I was hoping to give my friend the best experience and instead I gave her disappointment.
