ROY'S KO'OLINA GOLF CLUB

ROY'S KO'OLINA  
GOLF CLUB

Never thought I would ever have a disappointing meal at Roy's.  Every visit for over 15 years has been good.  Real good.  Always amazed with the consistency of the food and service at Roy's up until now.  Roy's Ko'Olina was really lacking on service and flavor this last visit.  Nothing really came together.  Our waiter seemed distant and did not really engage us in any way.  Actually apologized at the end of the meal.  We went with the Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Prix Fixe Menu. $41.50 for a three course meal.  $61.50 with the wine pairing.  The appetizer consisted of two small pieces of delicious Ahi Tuna slightly blackened on the outside and rare in the middle.  Delicious.  The Mongolian Beef Ribs are also really good.  The Spring Roll was really bland.  We ordered the Beet Salad and Mushroom Risotto separately because we enjoyed them the last time at Roy's.  The salad did not disappoint.  Nice slices of beets served with greens, blue cheese and a balsamic dressing.  The Risotto was not like we remembered the last time at Roy's.  I blogged about the Risotto before as being the best tasting Risotto in my life.  I ordered the Macadamia Crusted Fresh Catch which was Swordfish.  Lightly crusted with Hawaii Macadamia nuts.  Fish was good but the sauces which are usually excellent were bland and added nothing to the dish.  My wife had the Honey Mustard Grilled Beef Short Ribs.  Wow....what a huge chuck of beef.  Nice portion.  My wife said it had no taste even with the sauce.  I took several bites and agreed.  The beef was served with Poi.

Not our favorite side dish.  My daughter enjoyed the Kids Meal Salmon that was served with rice and more soy beans.  We left a lot of food on the plates here.  Just was not up to Roy's standards for flavor. Thought the dessert would save the meal.  Roy's Melting Chocolate Souffle.  Problem is it did not melt.   The cake was pretty dry in the middle.  I don't know what happened this night at Roy's.  Really not what we had expected.  Good thing is that we had a gift card to pay most of the check.
