We celebrated Thanksgiving at Roy's. What a lovely time. Our waiter, "The David", was awesome, efficient & fun. Food was outstanding. Will plan to return soon.

We enjoyed the Travelzoo offer Roys was offering but had to also try their boat sampler appetizer. Everything the restaurant could possibly due to make this night fabulous they did. The valet stood out as super thoughtful and accommodating as they had moved our truck to the front so when we left and it was chilly we didn't have to... More

We had the travelzoo tasting menu. It was a little off as it started with egg rolls but then had a Caesar salad?! Then choice of entree. Then chocolate tart. Just okay overall

Made reservations and were promptly seated when we arrived. We both had 3 course meal which was great value. Lobster bisque and poke bowl were delicious. Ordered waygu steak, asked for medium but was overcooked. Soufflé takes 20 minutes to order and despite waiter telling us that they had to have entire 3 courses at beginning due to timing of...

Was in Palm Springs this week for a family wedding. A family member mentioned they went to Roy's and that it was wonderful, so we took our son and daughter in law. Pleasantly surprised by the attentive staff - from the valet to the doorman, as well as our table attendant. Menu had many Hawaiian dishes, including fish, beef and... More

Yes the restaurant is grest, food amazing but you can have a lot more fun at happy hour - or aloha hour- at the bar! And it goes till 7pm... staff is very friendly, very professional. Great date scene. There is only one TV in the bar, so it stays quiet enough to hold a conversation. Drinks are creative but... More

This high-end eatery is too pricey for us off their dinner menu but offers a terrific happy hour 4/7p, later than most & good for us late diners. The happy hour offers many delicious options as well as exotic drinks. Just amore of caution/ the dishes are reasonably priced for the quality & portions but if you order 5 dishes... More

We always enjoy Roy's in Maui and were delighted with this location in Rancho Mirage. Lovely room and very friendly staff. Valet parking to boot! The food was fresh and well presented with many familiar Roy's dishes including the Butter fish (black cod) in miso, so perfect. If you're missing Hawai'i head to Roy's and live aloha!

Our reservation was for 7:00, and we arrived at 6:45, and waited 1/2 hour for a booth which we asked for. it was our Anniversary. My husband's meal was so spicy he couldn't eat it. I tasted it and it was horrible. The waiter never came over to ask if everything was OK. He finally came over after my husband... More
