Roy's offer the best in Asian Pacific Rim fusion. They offer the freshest of seafood prepared with a Hawaiian-Asian flair. The service is alway on point and the atmosphere is casually elegant.

One of my fav restaurants San Diego, esp. the La Jolla location. The best place to sit is against the back wall near the bar. If you book a reservation online, you can request to sit there and almost every time you'll get it. Everything is great! I always get the Braised Short Ribs, a glass of their specialty Pfeffingen "Roy's Private Label" Riesling (its excellent!) and their Chocolate Souffle. The only draw back is never go during Valentine's Day. The place is packed and they end up running out of the prix fixe entrees so you're stuck with what they have left.

We've been here a few times, and yummmm...it's one of the few pricier places where I think the food is actually worth the money! They have a really good "all in one" option where you get your appetizer, main course and dessert for one pretty decent price. The Riesling wine is also quite delicious. And, the service has been excellent every time! It doesn't hurt, either, that the bathrooms are super clean and the napkins by the sinks are the softest, most cloth-like paper napkins I've ever used...call me weird, but the cleanliness of a bathroom is important to me--if the bathroom's clean, the kitchen's gotta be immaculate, right? ;-)

Roy's is an exciting place for a dinner! The ambiance is beautiful, and I found I could even forgive the fact that they have gas torches lit outside year-round (even during the wild fire crisis). The food is very good, however the portions may be small depending on what you order. I ordered a sea food variety plate and received four pieces of fish on a compartmentalized plate. Beautiful taste, but not very filling. Espectially for the price.

If you're in need of a tropical vacation, but can't go on one in anytime soon head off to Roy's. The hawaiian fusion atmosphere and food will satisfy your tropical desires. I often get the prix fix menu as the value can't be beat. The dessert menu changes daily and you'll love whatever it is they're making that day. Their house Reisling accompanies up to each and every family get together. We actually give out gift certificates as gifts.

I had driven by Roy's so many times, I didn't know what I was missing. My wife and I stopped in one night as a place we thought we would try for the heck of it. We were very pleased with what we found. The food was great (hawaiin infusion), actually good enough to remind us of our honeymoon :) The service was way above par!

This is a dining experience not to be missed. I was treated very well from the moment I walked into the restaurant. The hostess was very polite. Our waitress was great. When I wasn't sure about the wine, she offered me the opportunity to taste several before I made my choice. My dining companion said they didn't want some herb on their meal. During the salad, someone came out to clarify if my dining companion was allergic to the herb as the herb was also located in the sauce, not just on the steak. The food was excellent. I ordered the NY Steak and it was cooked perfectly (something I don't find often). When we finished out meal and were heading out, we as someone where the restrooms were. Two people jumped to help us and didn't point to the restrooms, but took us there. I find most restaurants to have poor service and food not worth the price. This is NOT one of those restaurants. Although the menu is a bit on the pricey side, I will go back.

This is a great restaurant for celebrating any special occasion. Seating is kind of tight but the quality of their food more than makes up for it. They also offer a Prixe Fixe menu. Valet & self parking available.
