Roy's New York, IMHO, should be reserved for special event only. Not because the food is supremely expensive (I paid $640 for a party of 5 adults and 2 kids, wines and tips included), but because the food is so unearthly good and the service unparalleled, you will feel other eating places well below par.
We tried the tasting menu, and the portion was generous, the presentation superb, and of course, it was a real treat. Reminds me of the culinary arts you see in Iron Chef. Very rarely you would see successful creative fusion dishes like at Roy's.
One thing that was a very pleasant surprise. We had two young toddlers who are not the most steady kind. But the staff was very patient, attentive and friendly to our kids, never made us feel like we are not wanted (or embarassing their place). Even Roy himself came by several times to make sure everybody was comfortable and having a great dinner. You just don't see this kind of service at any upscale restaurant elsewhere.
If you want an unforgetable dinner experience, go to Roy's New York.
