Guests can also choose to watch their dinner and sushi being made up close at our chef's counter. Chef Ryan Leto brings his imagination and artistry to the plate every night. A native of Tampa, and a ten year veteran of Roy's, he is proud to bring home his passion for cooking. It is our pleasure to welcome you into our Ohana and we look forward to serving you.
The menu here is the perfect example of mediocrity hyped up by wordy pretentiousness. In the end it's all sizzle no steak. They figure...throw in a few exotic ingredients and they have five-star fare that they can overcharge for, even though no attention was paid to basic things like saltiness. This is why, the bigger a chain gets, the more diluted its culinary talent gets. I don't mind small portions if the flavors leave me begging for more, but at Roy's this simply isn't the case. 3 stars for being average, minus 1 star for being so overpriced. The only highlight was the gelato. Steady decline here. Yamaguchi-San, please get back in here and save this place.
I was there for a business dinner with two colleagues and enjoyed it very much. We had great service - a very knowledgeable waiter (although slightly arrogant) and the drinks/appetizers were served very promptly. I had the butterfish, which I have only seen available at Roy's, and it was extremely good. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a casual, but classy, dining experience.
The most worst restaurant ever I been. Worst servicing. I asked for something, and they gave something else. Food contains few hair!!! Taste is worst. Very very limited menu. Finally chacolage cake is the worst.
Terrific fusion asian fusion cuisine and excellent, imaginative sushi. I was a little concerned that a chain, albeit a small chain, would suffer from a lack of attention to detail, but I was wrong to worry. Everything, from the informed and helpful server, to the delicious seared duck, to both sushi rolls, exceeded our expectations. Their menu changes about every three weeks at each location, so we're looking forward to going back and bringing guests from out of town.
The chocolate cake with a hot fudge center and a side of ice cream was delicious and easily the best part of the meal. Both because it was that good and the rest was that bad. My wife's filet was bleeding when she asked for med-well and by the time it came back the rest of us were almost finished eating. The food took forever to start with so it made the wait seem even longer. My dinner was forgettable and the menu wasn't very impressive. Aside from the delays from the kitchen the service was excellent and is the lone reason I might give it another chance.
Excellent atmosphere, great food and service. Better for steaks, seafood, and those tasty pork ribs! Of the sushi, the uni and conch were fresh and delicious. The kobe roll, though pricey at 15 bucks, is actually worth the price. It's textures and buttery beef just seem to melt in your mouth. Great overall, but the sushi bar is noisy and not designed for a traditional sushi experience.
