Went there for Naples Restaurant Week lured by their online menu which clearly listed their short ribs as a menu choice. Upon being seated we were told that the short ribs were now replaced by a meatloaf entree although they were still available as a full price choice. The so called wagyu beef meatloaf still just tasted like a meatloaf with no distinctive flavor.. This was preceded by a just warm bland miso soup and the meal was finished by a torte that tasted like it came from a convenience store. Having eaten at Roy’s many times and very impressed by the quality we were so disappointed by this meal and the menu misrepresentation. The server was kind and attentive but was let down by the kitchen and the management.

All my friends are in agreement that Roy’s is excellent. The disagreement concerns where to sit. Those who prefer to eat at the counter rave about the specials including the special pricing. Most prefer a more pampered meal at a well spaced table. It is a great choice when you really would like to talk with your dinner companions. The acoustics are always very good. You do not hear the conversation at the next table. A little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. Service, food and service are excellent. All the time.

I had a boneless short rib dish which was great. Mashed potatoes were very tasty and it complimented the dish with broccolini. Service was good. Atmosphere is good. The restaurant is somewhat expensive. My wife had a tasteless shrimp dish with only 3 large shrimps. in a watery lobster broth. That dish should have been an embarrassment to the restaurant. It is odd that one dish was truly great and the other dish was very disappointing and quite poor.

The chief and I met friends for drinks and apps at happy hour. Bar was crowded so they sat us outside. Bartender Theresa was terrific. Set up the seats fro maximum enjoyment. Drinks were in expensive. Apps were great. Do try the mussels, lobster pot stickers and the salmon and tuna poke. Very accommodating.

Food, service and greeters are always very good. You can tell that they work very hard to maintain their consistency. Only negative here is the noise level in their outer room. Suggest that when you make a reservation request seating in the main dining room.
