Diner Reviews
  • "Like how old school dining was supposed to be and will remain timeless forever."
    Dined on 8/27/2014
  • "Took my daughter there for a nice dinner to start off a good semester of school at U.of H. Our waiter remembered us dining there 4 months ago. Remembered our drinks. We were impressed with Phil. Kirby was on it removing whatever dish we were done with, filling our water and cleaning our table. John Hopkins pinched in with dessert. Everyone was so pleasant, it made us feel so special that evening."

  • "Have been dining at Hy's for special occasions for about 30 years and it continues to impress. From the moment you step out of the car until the moment you return to the car, everyone is attentive and friendly. A friendly chat with one of the chefs was an added bonus. The food is always of exceptional quality and made to order. Service is of the highest quality no matter what size group. Highly recommended."

  • "Hy's has been a mainstay in Waikiki for a a long while and it still can hold it's own against the other hi-end steak restaurants. I haven't been there in 20 years and won't wait that long to return. The service was impeccable, the food quite tastey, and ambiance was delightful. We ordered the rack of lamb and a filet mignon and washed it down with a lovely Cabernet. I'll keep this place on my list for all those special occassions."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "If you're hungry for a prime steak & fresh seafood dinner with first-class service in a old-world, speakeasy ambiance, Hy's is the place to go. One of the lasting restaurateurs with professional servers versed in tableside presentations, wine-pairing and providing 5-star service every time."

  • "ordered steaks med rare......... must have been sitting under the warmer too long. it came more like medium"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I am so surprised that the table position was too bad. I have never seen such bad sheet even I reserve our dinners. In addition, it is first time to see double column of gratuity and tip on checking. Is it special for Japanese? The food was really good. But, there are many questions."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Again Ceasars salad , not chilled enough, lettuce somewhat wilted. Cherries jubilee , ice cream to frozen. Bottom line everything was excellent On our next visit, no salad, or dessert."

  • "Great food and table side service like chateaubriand and bananas foster."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Service was good. Complimentary cheese bread came cold and greasy. Appetizers were good however our steaks came out cold as well as our sides (baked potato). Waiter warned us about hot plates...plates were cold. Steak tasted OK, not worth $75. Restaurant filled with Japanese tourist who were loud and boisterous, ruined our special occasion."

  • "Service and ambience were superb. Decor was classic. Steaks were juicy and tender"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "This icon of dining in Honolulu has remained throughout the social transition from a time where gentlemen wore dinner jackets to leisure suits to casual attire to taste superb food at a classy dining club. Its traditional attire for staff remains (almost surreal) as does the midtown Manhattan quality of food and service. And then there's dessert. Bananas Foster, Strawberries Flambe, and Cherries Jubilee (to mention the traditional items) topped my list of choices. You pick. And have lots of fun. Music to enhance, entrance and entertain too."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My husband and I returned to Hy's after 20 years and it still remains a top notch steak house. Caesar salad prepared table side, delicious steaks, cherries jubilee table side, excellent service - what else can you ask for? When in Honolulu, this place is a must try."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Our experience at Hy's is never a disappointment. The food is so delicious. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and the service is out of this world. Our waiters were so helpful, patient and kind. My father in law was experiencing some pain in his leg and has a difficult time sitting for any long period of time. One of our waiters was very sympathetic and even offered him a pillow to help with his discomfort. The waiters kept our water cups filled. This is pricey restaurant, but if you want quality food and service this is the restaurant to go to. They never disappoint."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Food was OK. We've had better at some other local restaurants - and for a lot less money. Ambience was OK if you're into dark wood, fake leather and a room that looks like an old school den. Overall it was OK. I won't be going back. Too many other VERY good restaurants in Hawaii for me to spend that kind of money on 'average'."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "The service was excellent. The food was great even though there were a few crab shells in the crab cakes. My wife and talked about the paintings in the room. We will definitely come back and try the steaks."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "After being escorted to our table, the wait staff quickly filled our water and brought the bread. We waited for someone to take our order, waiting 20 plus minutes. Eventually we think it was the floor manager came by to ask us if we were feeling ignored. We were feeling ignored so we said yes because it felt as though everyone else in our area was being attended to but us. In any case, he did take our order and we waited for our food. In general, the food was excellent. The only complaint would be about our baked potatoes. It wasn't as fluffy as it normally is but dry and hard even with the butter and sour cream we had on it. Still we would recommend going to eat here as this was not generally speaking what we normally experience."

  • "My husband enjoyed his 15 oz. prime rib, which was cooked to perfection. I loved my Manchong fish, cooked Oriental style. Both entrees were generous servings and we were able to bring home a doggie bag. The fresh green salad was very tasty with blue cheese dressing, which was lite, not heavy. We celebrated our 43rd anniversaty and we had our picture taken and enjoyed a slice of strawberry cheese cake. It was a very pleasant experience. Paul was an outstaning server."

  • "I love Hy's. been coming here since I was a kid. Wednesday was unfortunate cause there was a police incident and it just so happened to be where no cars could get out. The valet was nice enough to offer to have the cars remain and we go home in cabs. and of course subsequently come back in cabs. Or to walk home or wait it out. about a dozen or so of us waited for 4 hours. in the meantime, no one from the restaurant came to check on guests who just dined there. no offers for water, offering to seat us. in fact, they locked the doors so the car full of 70 year olds couldnt even go to the bathroom. disappointed. Not Hy's fault. but customer svc should not stop with the meal. its the aloha. $750 bucks and no bathroom. wow."

  • "It was quite an experience. I treated my boyfriend for his birthday. It was the first time for both of us. We loved the food, the service, the interior, and even the bathroom! We gave a $40 tip to our server. Definitely coming back to try everything else!"

  • "What a special treat! I brought my son and his best friend, who'd just turned 15. They tried foods they usually don't eat at loved them. The steaks were superb and perfectly cooked, the service was friendly and the birthday boy was treated like royalty. They can't wait to eat here again, so I promised them I'd take them for son's birthday in September. An altogether lovely evening."

  • "While on honeymoon in Wakiki, a hotel staff member recommended that we try HYs. We are glad she did. Service and food were second to none. I ordered a delmonico and my wife ordered the Garlic Filet. Both were melt in your mouth delicious. Additionally, it was really interesting to see our steaks grilled in view ( in what is an ornate glass room that slightly protrudes into the dining area). We topped off our dining experience with a delicious table side prepared dessert......special chocolate that melted with special ingredients and then was drizzled over ice cream. Special kudos to Josh. I love fine dining, and he is perhaps the most attentive wait person that I have ever had. This is a must stop for dining in Hawaii. Aloha"

  • "Great elegant ambience. Perfect for intimate dates. They do have a kids menu but not the best restaurant to take kids to if they are not well behaved. There is a dress code for men. No tank tops. If you happen to go there in one, they may have a shirt for you. Service is great and the waiters are awesome. Our favorite app was the escargot. Dinner we went with prime rib, it was cooked perfectly and desserts are amazing as well."

  • "I frequent this restaurant atleast once a month for both Business and Pleasure and as mentioned in the title "Consistency" is key. Celebrated my friends 25th Birthday here the other night. Made these reservations the same day and was able to get confirmation easy and hassle free. The environment and feel of the restaurant is elegant but welcoming. Service was superb and I like the fact that our waiter Philip did not rush or hound us. He allowed us to just enjoy the delicious food in peace. Pros: Service is Superb Free Valet Parking Flambe Desserts / Coconut Creme Brulei Any Steak Item grilled to perfection Complimentary Slice of Cheese Cake for Bday Celebrant Hotel Concierge Discount of 25% Cons: Oysters are not shucked"

  • "This was my 4th time. Each and every time we've dine at Hy', the food and service are excellent. I had filet mignon that was so tender it practically melts in the mouth. A tableside Caesar Salad has just the right amount of flavor and together the meat and salad are heaven on earth. My sincere recommendation is to go and enjoy this fabulous place!"

  • "Hy's is our go to steakhouse for special events, food and service are consistently great. From the cheese toast to the flaming desserts they have it all covered. I have been coming to Hy's since the restaurant opened and it looks exactly the same but that is one of its charms. Recommend for both kama'aina and for visitors if you want a great steak, you won't be disappointed."

  • "Service was impeccable, everything each of us ordered was very ono (delicious)...the monchong w/butter sauce was absolutely tasty, which is what I had...my daughter & her boyfriend had garlic steak & said it was easy to cut, so tender...the pork chop was huge...our water never went low, the service from the valet to the restaurant & back out was superb! Only thing NO TANK TOPS allowed, so my daughter's boyfriend had to borrow a shirt they have on hand, my other daughter was a little cold, but they had shawls on hand as well :)"
