Beautiful restaurant with great service and spectacular food. Would recommend the Canoe for 2 as an appetizer. Perfect size and great for tasting. Also the 4 fish option was great. Got to try all the different fish options on one plate.

A dinner at Roy's is like a piece of Hawaii. The Miso Butterfish with the Bok Choy is still unrivaled. I have been on a no sugar diet and the staff accommodated my situation with some innovative requests.

I had such high hopes for this place and was disappointed. The food was average. Service was good. For the price, I would not return.
