Roy's Downtown Last Night-It Was So Good!

Thanks to everyone who helped me decide what to order for my first time at Roy's in downtown LA.
We treated my coworker for her retirement dinner there last night and all 10 of us were quite happy with the wonderful meal we had.

Too many good choices on the menu so I'll have to definitely come back again but I thoroughly enjoyed my Hawaiian mixed plate sampler (misoyaki butterfish, rare ahi tuna, and salmon); others loved their prix fixed menu choices, and the chocolate souffle that everyone raves about truly lived up to all the hype!

  1. Roy's really is a gem of a place, esp. for a chain-type of restaurant.

    Glad it worked out well.

    1. Very consistent year round. Fair Prices and Good Atmosphere.

        I didn't like it and as one always on the lookout for pineapple-themed desserts, their pineapple upside-down cake was a major disappointment!

          I can't imagine ordering anything other than Roy's Signature Dessert , Choc Lava Cake?

            i've had their pineapple upside-down cake three times and think it's the best thing on the menu. i've gone to the bar just to have it. hope it hasn't gone downhill. bummer.

              Ms. Oz, the Greater Ozlet, and I had dinner at Roy's in Woodland Hills on Tuesday, and had the pineapple upside-down cake for dessert. We all thought it was pretty much dynamite. And we all enjoyed our meals very much; I had the Szechuan-style rack of lamb, which was delicious (though not especially "Szechuan," as far as I could tell), served with a fine curried rice and a peach salsa. We walked in on the spur of moment, without a reservation, and were seated immediately. I was very happy with the friendly (though not cloying) service. Yes, they do say "aloha" and "mahalo" a lot, but hey -- it's a Hawaiian-theme place, right?
