Steak
A “USDA PRIME BEEF” SPECIALTY HOUSE
Hy's Steak House is an award winning restaurant in the heart of Waikiki. Open in 1976, Hy's has been a favorite of locals & visitors for 40 years. Hy’s proudly serves 100% All Natural “Never-Ever” USDA Prime beef, the finest quality beef on the market. We believe our process retains the tenderness & taste of the meat while reducing the fat content appreciably. Hy’s uses native Hawaiian Kiawe wood as it cooks with a more intense even heat & complements the flavor of fine beef.
Hy's boasts an exquisite wine list with an emphasis on reds from the most reputable vineyards from around the world.
The ambiance is Old-World, classic &very comfortable. Hy's Steakhouse enforces a strict dress code policy. Gentlemen are required to wear Collared Shirts and Covered Shoes. We kindly ask that all our guests refrain from wearing swimwear and baseball caps. Complimentary valet service available.

Server was not attentive, other wait staff needed to assist us with almost all aspects of our meal. Worst experience we’ve had and we’ve been coming here for years. Was not offered celebration dessert or a dinner photo. Will not be returning anytime soon.

ステーキがとても美味しいです。キアヴェの炭で焼かれたお肉は、
そのキアヴェの香りをまとい、ほのかに香ばしく、お肉の旨味とあいまって味わい深いステーキとなっていました。
また、ステーキソース3種類のほかに塩わさびがあり、これもまたお肉との相性が抜群で、お肉料理なのに後味がさわやかな感じがします。
スタッフの方の接客も、さすがです。
全ての料理を友人とシェアしたのですが、スタッフの方がスマートに取り分けてくださり、優雅な気分で食事ができました。
次回の旅行の時も必ず予約を入れようと思います。

Food and service were great as always. However it took longer than expected to get main entrees after we were served our salads. We waited about 25mins to get our petite filets for a party of only 4 people.

The steaks were cooked to perfection and tasted awesome.

Just wished we didn’t have to wait to see them though. Will this deter us from coming back? Nope, we plan to come back later on this year to celebrate another occasion.

ハネムーンで行った先のハワイで利用しましたが、特別な日の利用という事でケーキをサービスしてくださり、写真までプレゼントしていただきました。

とても親切に対応していただき、とてもいい思い出になりました。また、量が多いため一人前を2人でシェアして何品か注文しましたが、サラダやスープを初めから分けて提供してくださったのがよかったです。

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary, and they went out of their way to provide us with an excellent table, a complimentary cheesecake dessert, and a photo of the two of us. And as expected, food was delicious. Overall experience was exemplary. I highly recommend Hy's.

Anniversary dinner on vacation. I first dined here in 2006 and since then it has become a mandatory stop on my returns. Exquisite tasting meat with the kiawe char. Flambes are wonderfully prepared and taste amazing. Highly recommend the surf and turf with King crab legs.

The entrance was not easy to differentiate between the next drive way. A visible sign from the roadway would be appreciated. The parking lot guy for the next building was very nice. He must see Hy’s patron a lot.

We celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary. The parking lot people were very friendly, nicely dressed. I felt like my car would be well cared for. The hostess was so cute, friendly and efficient.

Our service team was awesome! Josh, Stephanie and Rutger made us feel welcomed and appreciated. The ambiance was very comfortable. A light over a picture in the back area of the bar was out. I noticed this because equipment or things not working is poor energy. A mirror had some smudges way on top. I noticed this because when I was a kid, my mother expected perfection. The refrigerator’s back in the day had to be polished, everything had to be sparkling and smudge free.

The food was perfection!! The fish appetizer was generously cut. The filet mignon was absolutely gorgeous on the inside, so perfect and season just right, not to salty.
The scallops were sweet and tasty. The baked potato was moist and not dry. The table side cherries jubilee service topped off the night. The Champaign with cassis was so delightful. And we got to take home a souvenir, a nice picture. It’s nice that Hy’s provide parking and pictures without haggling the guest.

This was a very honest review. I hope I was not to harsh. I felt that my time and energy to write this would be appreciated because I would like to come back.

I would recommend this steak house. You don’t have to dress fancy even though there is a dress code. There were people there in jeans. The service was great, we were celebrating so we got a complementary dessert and photo which was sweet. The non alcoholic drinks were not very good, well to me, to each their own. The portions weren’t small but were not as large as I had hoped for, I was not full after my dinner. The dessert was not good, I got the cheesecake. I’m sure the flambé which they’re known for would have been much better. I didn’t like the cheese bread either. The restaurant environment and service were great! I’m just not personally a fan of the food. But I’m a picky eater. Also there was complimentary valet. Thank you.

お店の雰囲気は非常に良いです。他のワイキキのステーキ店と一線を画す大人の空間です。今回で数度目の来店になりますが、毎回頼んでいるポーターハウスが、ミディアムでお願いしたものの、非常にレアに近い状態だったのと、サーロインの真ん中に非常に固い筋が入っていて、食べ辛かったのがマイナスポイントです。フィレの方も焼き加減はレアでしたが、非常に柔らかく美味しいお肉でした。
目の前で作ってくれる「ホーレン草のサラダ」は最高に美味しかったです。

Hy's is very much a traditional steak house from years gone by. The atmosphere is much like an English gentleman's club, with panelled walls, paintings, mirrors, and chandeliers. Service is by a crack team; watching them prepare a flambéed dessert is fascinating (lots of videos made at the tables). I began with the colossal prawns, which really were just that; my companion had the excellent scallops. We both had the garlic filet mignons (I would have preferred a top sirloin for flavor, but it was not available); I though mine t a bit under seasoned, but my companion liked his quite a lot. We both enjoyed the excellent mashed potatoes and green vegetables. My mocktail was delicious--no need for alcohol with those fruit flavors--and my companion enjoyed his white and red glasses of wine. Throughout the meal a fine acoustic guitarist played softly.

Great ambiance. Wonderful service. The originals Caesar salad and flambé at the table were great. Crab & Mac unique and enjoyable. The NY strip was average. The garlic sauce helped give some taste to average piece of meat. Better steak restaurants in town. Thought we would return to this old favorite. If I go back probably order seafood. The live music was outstanding also.

The food was good and the staff was extremely friendly. They kept our glasses filled. Our reservation was for 7:30PM and we didn’t get our main corse until after 9:00PM. The food took too long to come out. It was hot when it made its way to our table however, the wait time was unacceptable. I will not return nor recommend.

Not that great. I remembered they really used to be good in early 2000s. Dined for a double birthday celebration with Visitors from the mainland. When we arrived we were told our reservations were canceled when in fact I had called five hours prior and canceled and rescheduled.We were seated in a small booth that fit four people uncomfortably. The waitress spilled water as she refilled the celebrants cup almost getting Water on his phone. The seafood was good however everyone else that ordered steaks were mediocre and not worth the price that we paid. It did not taste any different from the steak we would grill at home from FoodlAnd Which was way cheaper. I would not come here again and spend this much money. We were very disappointed.

If you are going to one expensive restaurant in Honolulu, this should be it! My husband loved his steak and my scallops were lovely. The roasted broccolini was the best we have ever had. Great service, nice wine list and don't miss the chocolate/passoin fruit cake.
