Roys in Rancho Mirage has been one of our "go to" places for the better part of 20 years. We always get the Butterfish or one of the multiple course offerings. This trip was very disappointing. The food came out lukewarm and not very tasty. The vegetables were burnt and it all indicated that the quality of the chefs and... More

High end price but worth it-Butterfish combo is out of the world-Canoe appetizer tray for 2 or 4 is also excellent Also try the chocolate volcano desert Valey parking- a must in Palm Desert

Originally made reservations for last night for 4 on open table. Yesterday at 3pm I called direct to Roy's and asked to change to 5 people. I was told the restaurant was fully committed for the night and they would not be able to serve us?? With no choice I canceled the reservations and went back to open table to... More

Love Caymus, but saw the menu they were serving with it wine dinner, I thought..wow, I can's miss that..... and glad I did not! Wine... More

Went there during an event hosted at the Omni Rancho and I think they weren't expecting to be so busy during lunch time. In fact they had a brunch menu which was OK (heard that during dinner the menu is somehow much better). My only negative point is that our food took ages and could see how desperate the waitress...

We had eaten at the Roy's restaurant in Las Vegas several times before. We wanted to try the Rancho Mirage location. The dining room ismuch larger than Las Vegas. The experience is certainly less intimate nonetheless conveys an active pleasant vibe. We had a drink at the bar during happy hour at a very reasonable price. As expected the food... More

The Blackened ahi Tuna was delicious. Perfect. Steaks were perfect. Friends steak was tough to cut. Taken off the menu. Such a classy restaurant. Deserts were awesome🌺😊 This remains one of... More

This is a place where they do try to get it right. We came in at 7pm and the place was packed. The service was slow but steady and all of the food was really tasty. Chocolate Souffle for Desert was perfect with the molten chocolate running from the pastry. Wow! No one does it better than Roy's!

We ate here twice on our stay in Palm Desert. The first night was Ventine's. They had a special menu but limited selections. The second night was the usual menu. We preferred the usual menu as it had more of the menu items that were our choices. The food is always good and look forward to the soufflé at the... More
