Our first time at Royale. We had supper at 6 on a Thursday. The food was very delicious: Poplar Bluff carrot borani, smoked pork hock gnocchi and the Royale with cheese burger with poutine. My partner is a burger purist and missed having ketchup and other traditional condiments but enjoyed the burger nonetheless. He also didn't ask what was on the poutine and wasn't super enthused that it had duck. I thought it was really tasty. We shared the borani and could have easily shared the gnocchi as well. Both those dishes were to die for!!! The flavors of the borani were amazing together! I'm also quite happy I had leftover gnocchi to take home. 3 cocktails and a beer and we rolled out with a $140 bill including 20% tip. The service was attentive and friendly while still professional. We loved the decor and would love to sit at the bar next time. We easily had a conversation over dinner but the restaurant was not busy. We are very happy we finally tried Royale and we look forward to coming back.

I would recommend this to everyone . If there was a 6 star review they would deserve it. My lunch was good and really quick. I left stuffed. I had the three course and it's a pretty good value. Kerry was awesome. Great service. She is funny as heck . Go check it out.

Went here for a birthday dinner with friends. The hosts were friendly, funny and solicitous, providing expert advice on the menu and wine list. On a Wednesday night the restaurant was not too crowded, but several parties were enjoying dinner at other tables. The decor is a lovely pastiche of 80s bistro style, with tile floors, hanging plants, skylight windows, warm tones, softly-lit globe lights and marble accents, and the menu is a lighter, more modern and fresh interpretation of bistro classics. The charcuterie and cheese plate was well appreciated by our guests, there were complimentary (?) birthday bubbles, the bar is well stocked and capable of producing a wide range of cocktails, and on this weeknight it was half-price on their excellent list of wines by the bottle - a superb value. But the real reason to come here is the food, which is spectacular. Duck breast perfectly cooked, with a pavé made of layered, creamy, thin potato slices that melts in your mouth. Vegetarians are well catered to with an array of dishes that are made with equal care as their meat counterparts, and the desserts are imaginative and not overly sweet - carrot cake with a parsnip ice cream went down a treat and their family recipe tiramisu leans on creamy texture and earthy coffee notes rather than burying you with sugar. I would recommend this place to everyone - there are intimate tables for dates as well as accommodations for groups of 4 or more.

We recently tried the Sunday night set dinner menu - which wasn't french food per se, but it was outstanding. So many items and so well prepared - we all agreed dinner was amazing. We also like our waitress - so friendly and personable. I highly recommend you try Royale and to give the Sunday night dinner menu a go.

I have dined at Royale a few times now and always had a great time.
Today however, was different.
After booking a reservation I recieved a call from Royale to confirm my reservation requests. The man on the phone also noted that he recognized my reservation name, asked me if I was in for a special occasion. It was the first time coming in with my family instead of business meetings. He asked if he could do anything special for my family as a welcome. I didn't expect this . My family was treated to the best brunch we have ever had.
Keep it up Royale, you are impressive.

I booked for a birthday and this was not addressed or mentioned. I found the service to be lacklustre. My friends food took much longer to come out than everyone else’s and no one came to check on us to let us know that it was on the way.

The decor and mood of Royale was unique and very beautiful. Our server was attentive and consistent with his service. Unfortunately 2 of the 5 plates served were wrong however the manager was very quick to apologize and comped the bills for those 2 guests.

The pork belly and scallops were okay. Octopus was tender which was great but presentation seemed a bit heavy handed with creme fraiche.

From the start, my date was late, but the team was very accommodating. They made sure I had a place to sit at the bar while waited. Had changed my seating, because I wanted it to be more private and the team had no hesitation on helping. Although the table was wobbly, they fixed the issue. Everyone was super friendly and professional at the same time. Takes a good balance. This was my first time there and was my date’s favourite place. Food was fantastic and they know how to make a proper negroni. Would definitely be back! Thank you again Team Royale!
