The title says it all. The food, beverages and service were all great really great. It is just very expensive but I guess if you want the good food and service you have to pay for it.

I go here for happy hour before a movie near by. Very good appetizers and good wine. Sometimes it is difficult to get a seat.

Roy's has a great atmosphere and fine menu for meetings or celebrating special occasions. It is a bit expensive but worth it. They have an extensive menu and great selection of wines.
