Great experience for start to finish. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. I could not ask for a better time for my boyfriends birthday. They even printed a photo of us and we had a complimentary piece of cheese cake for dessert. The food was the best I have had on the island.

We had the scallops with asparagus, oysters on the half shell, porterhouse, steak rack of lamb and seafood risotto. There were 4 of us and we ate family style so we could as all have a taste of the fabulous items. Cherries Jubilee ended our dinner which is always done with flair at tableside. Our family go to for all celebrations!

Food excellent, the epitome of what a steak house is supposed to present.
Service was even better, from the young men keeping our water glasses filled to our primary waiter. Absolutely OUTSTANDING.
If I have any disappointment it's merely in their selection of Irish whiskey. They have one, and it's the cheapest, most common, bottom shelf Jameson. ZERO single malts; ZERO high end blends. Lots of Scotches, lots of bourbons and American whiskies. Not really sure how a competent bar manager overlooks the Redbreast family, the Spots, Midleton, Teeling, even Jameson and Bushmills have better offerings than the bottom shelf stuff seen in every hotel bar around the world. I expect better from Hy's.
All that whining aside, this is still a Five-Star steak house, and one of our top three go-to special occasion restaurants in Honolulu.

This was a mixed evening. We ordered the sea food tower, which was unattractive and the king crab was watery. The truffled crab mac and cheese was excellent, as was the delmonico steak and scallops . We had 2 salads - the Waldorf and arugula, neither of which seemed to have a concept. The risotto was fair. The desert - bananas foster, was only fair, as the bananas were green, and had very little flavor. The service was very good - friendly and gracious without being too familiar or formal.

They came over to our table and told us to that the Wine had to be taken off the table at 10 PM sharp and I wish they would’ve told us at 9:30 so we could’ve enjoyed the wine.At least let customer know at 9:30 pm that they have to take the wine off the table at 10 PM sharp so you’re not drinking wine like a frat party.

Celebrating wife’s birthday. Wished they offered table seating instead of booth or at least gave us an option. Would have preferred seating in the lower level. The lighting in the upstairs area was too brightly lit. They should tone down the lighting. Service was impeccable as usual but felt a bit rushed during meal service. Menu options have been the same for years. Wished they had a more extensive menu with appetizers. Still gave them 5 stars overall.

Classic Steak House, attentive, but unobtrusive service. Steaks and seafood excellent. Escargot was over the top. Entrees come with veg and starch, so they don't nickle and dime you. Exhibition grill (enclosed in glass). Great wine list, though not super extensive, for the oenophile. We asked for our favorite champagne (not on the list) and they found a bottle for us. Overall, an incredible experience. Don't order the crab cakes.

Food was good. The big issue on the food end was the sides, bland and under-seasoned vegetables accompanied the meal, but the protein was actually nice. The biggest issue was over promising and under delivering. When they called to confirm the reservation promises of a special desert and a picture were made but those promises were not fulfilled. Every other table had the special treatment so we left feeling singled out and frustrated wondering what was wrong with us (perhaps being younger than other diners was the issue?). Had they not have made the promise I would have left not feeling this, the review would have been better but when you promise something for someone’s anniversary and you don’t deliver it. That’s what you take away. There are plenty of nice restaurants in Waikiki, if you’re going to spend this much take your business to one that will follow through on its promises.

Food is pricey, but the quality is right on the mark. The service is excellent, top notch. They never miss the moment you need a refill on your drinks, and they immediately clear out your table to make room for the next dish. Hy's team made our occasion a moment to remember with their attention to detail and also their knowledge on the menu and wine.

Haven’t had dinner here in decades. The service, appetizers, and cowboy style rib eye continues to be a culinary treat like few other steak houses. Most and cooked to perfection and every morsel eaten with a smile!

My wife and I were vacationing on Oahu for our 30th anniversary. We went to the restaurant on a suggestion and it delivered. Dark steakhouse, very Tony Soprano... love it! Everyone was so kind, attentive. The food was excellent, the filet and NY Steak were delicious, they gave us a yummy cheesecake as a gift. We would definitely go back, if you don’t know about the restaurant you would never drive by and stop.
Thanks for all your hospitality.
