This was a good restaurant 10 years ago. However, their prices have doubled (now over $40 per entree), and their quality has decreased. Last night we had over-cooked, dry, tasteless mahi mahi and mediocre butterfish. There are serious ethical concerns about where their fish is...More

Roy’s is a classic restaurant with some incredible pacific rim cuisine. The butterfish is simply delicious, as is the macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi. The service was friendly and efficient, while the decor was elegantly subdued. I recommend Roy’s!
