Hawaiian cuisine does not tend to be the majority of diners idea of fine dining. However, many of these diners may not have visited Roy’s Restaurant in Summerlin. The restaurant looks like an exotically sophisticated Hawaiian lodge from the outside. Step inside to find a bar and lounge which is sufficiently different aesthetically from the rest of the space. A “sushi bar” wraps around the open kitchen while the rest of the dining room is filled with tables covered in white linen and pistachio green napkins folded neatly in the glassware. The cocktail selection is varied, fairly extensive and each contains fruity, fresh flavors, simulating those cocktails one would imagine drinking while relaxing on a Hawaiian beach. The wine list is not overly extensive, though it does contain some of the lovely crisp and fruit filled white choices which accompany the cuisine well. The blackened island tuna in a mustard based sauce is a simple, fresh way to start the experience. However, the crunchy golden lobster potstickers are certainly a worthy opponent. In the way of entrees, the butterfish was surprisingly decadent, though a tad heavier than some of the other entrees, such as the mahi mahi dish. If your first inclination is not fish, the slow braised beef short ribs are pulled apart with little to no effort and melt in your mouth. Save room for sweets, Roy’s makes a chocolate soufflé that could make the French jealous. For reservations call (702) 838-3620 or drop by. Roy’s is located on 8701 W Charleston Blvd.
