Eat here frequently. always quality. Never a bad meal. Good Bar Service and Counter Service. Wish it had an outdoor patio. Could use a design updating. don't think it has been re-decorated in at least the last 5 years.Always pleasant and efficient Valet Parking.

Totally delicious brunch that is not a buffet. All breakfast items are ordered of the menu. Ask for the Roy's special Bloody mary. It has one hell of a surprise.

Some time since was in a Roy's. Last few times were in Hawaii and Seattle. I had forgotten how good the food was. This time was in Rancho Mirage, CA. The first impression came from the Valets who opened the door for my wife and myself, we checked in for our reservation. The decore and table setting were a good impression. During dinner I noticed how all service members hustled all the time and no one had an empty hand, but made every move count. Our waiter, David Luis, greeted us and offered to take drink orders. He returned to offer suggestions, took our appetizer, then took our entree order. The order came promptly and was served with the same zest and professional manner we had seen during dinner Not inexpensive, but the fully worth the price. Our car was returned by the valet with the same service as when we arrived. It is nice go to a fine restaurant and get good food and service.

A treat from our children took the form of a gift certificate which we were looking forward to. All in all, we were very pleased with the food, both quality and taste – enough said (although you might want to pass on the pineapple upside down cake if your mother used to make it!). The service was the spoiler from the delay, to the elapsed time between server visits, to the need to continually ask for more water, to ask for bread, and lastly, to ask to have our empty plates removed. Reflective of this, the manager asked about our food which we give a thumbs up to, but when we asked to have our empty plates removed he called for a busser rather than do it himself. The manager should set the standard for service not just be a greeter! Too often, if you read these reviews, you read that service tends to lessen the experience – no exception for us.

We have dined at Roy’s many times and the service, the food quality and the personnel are simply consistent; always engaging, very knowledgeable and eager to take care of the customer. Randy, the General Manager treats customers like good friends and his #1 team member, Trinidad (Trini) is a really great and attentive team member. The menu is consistently well delivered and the food quality is the best. Roy’s is most assuredly a great place to dine in the desert!
