We used a coupon offer and dining cards we'd purchased earlier to get our money's worth. The food is always excellent. My husband can't get past the Ahi Tuna, he thinks it's the best. I tried Roy's three fish plate and was surprised how much I liked the salmon's preparation.

Roy's is one of our favorite places. The food is always good and one of the most consistent. My wife and I both had the Asian rib appetizer for our entree and it was more than enough. We also had the chocolate lava cake. All of the desserts are outstanding. The staff is very attentive and the service is great. One of the best places in Bonita.

We love Roy's, it seldom disappoints. If you like tasty sauces, fresh seafood and outstanding service, this is the place for you. Tim is our favorite waiter. He is efficient, friendly without being intrusive. He remembers likes/dislikes/allergies, and above all he is right on with a wine recommendation. All in all an excellent experience.

We went to the Roy's in Bonita Springs on Saturday evening, April 9. Our food and service were excellent. We were there years ago with a great experience and then took friends the year later and everyone was disappointed with the food and service. Received the coupon in the mail and thought we'd try it again. Very pleased this time. Our waiter and food were excellent. We'll be back!!!

I had a combination of butterfish and ahi tuna, and they were "pretty good," but less than what I had expected. Fairly loud and busy. My salad entree had a small piece of breaded warm cheese inside it, which was also not what I had expected. Fairly good overall, but I wouldn't return.

We have friends from Minn, and had to go to our favorite and there's restaurant. Our friends had went to Roys in Hawaii and hooked us on one in Rampa. Since then we are regulars at the Bonita Roys. This Mother's Day we will be partaking of the brunch special.

Roy's is always great

Dined on April 5, 2016

From the first time we dined at the original Roy's in Honolulu (1988) to this last visit at the Bonita Springs, Florida location, we have never been disappointed. We started our dinner with lobster potstickers and filet mignon dumplings. Both were excellent. My husband had some wonderful salmon and I had shrimp. No disappointments. My husband's meal came with dessert (Roys version of a chocolate lava cake). And when we first arrived we were joking around about my age since it was my birthday. Our waiter, Nick, was obviously listening to our banter, so he surprised me with a tasty key lime dessert with a candle in it. I was most happy to switch desserts with my husband since I am a chocoholic. How fabulous was the hot gooey chocolate pouring out of the cake as I first cut into it. We will be back at another Roy's soon. I still want to try their pineapple upside down cake.

Roy's is awesome

Dined on April 2, 2016

The last time we dined at Roy's was in Maui and had a great experience. We have been in SW Florida now for 3 seasons and decided to give it a try. So many good restaurants and so little time. I ordered the Covina and my wife the Macadamia Nut Mahi Mahi. Both dishes were THE BEST that we have had since our time here. We dine out a lot. My Corvina was absolutely the best piece of fish I have ever tasted. The service was very good and was just a real plus to our dining experience. Thank you Roy's for such a great experience. We plan to become regulars.

Dined on April 1, 2016

We love Roy's and always save our last night of vacation to go there for dinner. Food was excellent- as always. Chocolate soufflé is outstanding. Only minor quibble this time was the feeling that we were being moved along our courses very quickly. Drinks, complimentary edamame, then appetizers, entrees and dessert - in 75 minutes! Not exactly relaxing. Saw other tables getting similar rush. We will still go back, it's that good.

I've been to Roys in Chicago, where I live, a few times. They have it all down to a science. For Southern Florida, you can't beat it for great seafood. Having said that, the curry chicken dish was off the charts too.

Dined on March 9, 2016

My wife surprised me with a night out with seating at the chef's counter. It was a treat. Roy's had our place set with a nice note. The food was great and our service was better. Our server Daniel called us by name and did just a great job. We had the Scallops and Corvina ... both dishes were terrific and I would recommend either. Roy's staff made sure our experience was a good one ... and they succeeded.

Great for special occasions

Dined on February 29, 2016

When we have something to celebrate, we usually chose Roy's in Bonita Springs, FL. We know we can count on consistently good food and service. If it is an occasion like a birthday or an anniversary, we can count on them to make it special. This time it was the end of a very successful business month. We learned two nice bits of information - on Mondays, you can build your own prix fixe meal, and that their wonderful melting lava dessert is gluten free. We will continue to spend our celebrations there.

Good dining but need new bartender

Dined on February 28, 2016

Dinner reservations at 7pm and our friends arrived before us. Decided to order a drink while they waited ...They almost left after waiting 15+ mins for female bartender to come over to take their order and then she was unpleasant...not good. Our waiter was great and almost made up for the bartender. Menu options too " tricked up" for my husbands taste, but the rest of our group enjoyed their food.
