HMost recent visit was great! Came here to celebrate dude's birthday as he really likes the food here. We started off with a drink at the bar since we were lucky and made it before happy hour ended, offered 7 days a week. We also got the wagyu burger with a small side salad substituted for fries $10. The burger came with a nice size Patty and a fried egg, very authentic Hawaiian and extremely tasty. This burger is probably my favorite item on the happy hour menu. We then got transferred over to our dining table for dinner. Order the three-course Korean fusion menu that they have going on right now for $40. We started off with the shrimp and pork gyoza, they were very tasty and that dipping sauce they came with was unique and had a interesting twist of flavors. for our main course we ordered the mahi-mahi fish but it came out over cooked in a bit dry, our waitress was super nice and allowed us to change it for the loco moco instead. And that dish came with a large piece of short rib cooked to perfection and we loved it. We also got the chocolate lava cake for dessert and I've had this multiple times and love it every single time. Our waitress was super awesome, attentive, fast and efficient, and super friendly. We loved her. Highly recommend! Been here many time for happy hour and the food is pretty good. The rolls are hard and cold though and I wouldn't recommend those. Dinner options are pretty good and the service is very attentive.

Mango Mojito: 3 stars Sweet but didnt have much of a mojito taste to this drink, needed more rum. Appetizer: Hawaiian Ahi Tuna Poke* Pine Nuts - Garlic Chipotle Aioli - Tempura Nori Chips: 4 stars Tempura gave the chips an amazing texture that very nicely complemented the Ahi Poke. Wish they had given us more of the chips though. Mushroom Dusted Alaskan Halibut w/Creamy Lemon Risotto - Herb Tomato Demi: 3.5 stars Halibut wasn't as soft/ buttery as Chilean Halibut but was a bit on the dry side & the Risotto was on the mushy side. Chocolate Molten Souffle w/Vanilla Ice Cream: 3.5 stars Very chocolatey & on the denser side, this souffle needed more fluff to it. =) Ambiance: 4 stars Very nice & chill atmosphere. Reminded me a Hawaiian version of Flemings This is a great date night/ special occasion restaurant to go to. =) Service: 5 stars Very attentive, they greeted us at the door, at our table the waiter saw to all our needs & we never had to look for him if we needed anything.

Went to Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant in Newport Beach on Sunday night for dinner. Nutshell: Good flavor. Very *very* pricey. It was a bit dark inside the restaurant. Small portions. Details below. Appetizers ---------------- 1. Crunchy Golden Lobster Pot Stickers - This is served with a spicy Togarashi Miso Butter Sauce. Pretty average. Wasn't very impressed by this item. The amount you get for $12 was pretty comical. 2. Panko Crisp Szechuan Calamari - This is prepared with sweet Thai Chili Glaze, Macadamia Nuts, Chili Peppers. Excellent item! Great flavor! It was a little sweet and a little spicy at the same time which I am a huge fan of. They also give you the calamari "hearts" which is a nice change of pace. Dinner --------- Roy's Trio - this is a sampler of 3 different fish dishes. Hibachi Salmon, Macadamia NutCrusted Mahi Mahi & Misoyaki Butterfish served with Baby Bok Choy & Steamed Rice. The salmon and butterfish were both *excellent*. The mahi mahi was just OK. Bottom line - this place is OK to try and/or perhaps come to once in a blue moon on special occasions. It is hard to justify coming here because of high cost of everything.

well maybe it's not as good as roy's in maui, but it's much closer. my date had the butterfish which was to die for and i had the scallops which were equally terrific. fish restaurants usually make me sick. this place did not. do it right and have lobster potstickers and hearts of palm caesar salad with a dressing to die for. had both the chocolate souffle and upside down cake for dessert and that put the cap on a terrific evening.

Our first experience at Roy's was disappointing. I reserved a table for my boyfriend and me for his birthday. The table was as requested, and we didn't have to wait. The menu did have a "Happy Birthday" sheet, which was nice. Lobster Potstickers: From the name alone, we already thought it was kind of a bad idea. Lobster is such a delicate flavor, so to have it mixed in with some sort of vegetable and pan-fried in a dumpling wrapper would totally mask whatever mild taste it had. We were right. For all we knew, the meat could have been something else, and we wouldn't have known the difference. Misoyaki "Butterfish": The butterfish is in quotes, because it's actually black cod. I actually preferred this over my own short rib entree, as the meat was actually soft and flaky. This was paired with furikake-sprinkled rice and a single French carrot. The latter, which didn't look skinned or cleaned well. For the dish, it seems that the carrot should have been cooked all the way through (so it's softer), but it wasn't. Braised Short Rib: Yes, the meat came apart easily, but it could have also used a few more hours of cooking. When I think of slow-cooked meats, I think of something immensely tender, rather than chewy. The short rib sat above a few sprigs of broccolini and mashed potato. I really like mashed potato, but the one gripe we had about this one was that the texture wasn't completely smooth. There were small pieces that made the mash seem gritty. Chocolate Souffle: What's the hype around this? Granted, it was better than the complimentary birthday cake (really dry), but it was not amazing. The scoop of ice cream and raspberry sauce were nice compliments, but the souffle itself was like an over-baked brownie with some melted chocolate in the middle. Not at all light, fluffy, or moist. Overall, the service was okay, even when our server forgot to give us our dessert utensils. The food was over-salted and sub-par - especially for the price.

service was poor and the food was over prepared. once seated, we waited for a while to have our drink orders taken and everything else was equally slow. the food was overseasoned and the sauces were overpowering the natural flavor of the food. they ended up comping our desserts but i still wouldn't return. i've been to other roy's; imo, they think they're better than they really are.
