Waiter seemed preoccupied but wait help service was excellent
We always received superb food & service in the past. Very disappointing this time.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been their, 40 + years the decor is just like it was in the late 70’s, food was as good as it gets, but the service is what makes the nite an experience, no excuses for COVID-19. Just great service and an enjoyable experience!!

Hy’s was wonderful! Their food quality and service were excellent as usual. I was surprised with how busy it was (it was a weekend though) and if I had one thing that bothered me, it seems like the restaurant was packed beyond what I thought was reasonable for this pandemic. But, their COVID measures were good and they did have some spacing between tables.

So excited to see that Hy's Steak House continues to provide excellence in spite of these difficult times. The required safety practices that they have put in place did not detract from our enjoyment. In fact, it is reassuring to see them work to ensure the health and safety of their patrons, as they continue to provide excellent service and dining. Their cheesy bread is a favorite and was as delectable as always. In my opinion they have the best esgarcot, bar none, and I have tried many. Our steaks (3 filet mignon and a porterhouse) were done to perfection, flavorful and tender. Their wine list is a delight. Love being able to sample wines from different vineyards. Looking forward to our return.

We always have an amazing time at Hy’s, and this time was no different. Our server Tanya was professional, personable, and one of the best we’ve ever had! We really missed coming here during the shutdown and this experience more than made up for the wait. One of our favorite places on the island.

It was our first time dining out since the pandemic. I was really anxious, but all the anxiety subsided once we were seated. The hostess greeted us and was welcoming. Our wait staff was excellent. Guests were seated apart following social distance guidelines. Everything was cleaned and disinfected properly. The food was delicious as always. Best steak house on the island! Definitely coming back soon.

This was my first time here and it was excellent! The food was delicious and the service was exquisite. Our first time back to a restaurant since Covid and I was very impressed with the extra precautions they took to make sure we were safe. I started with the onion soup and it was great! I had the ribeye and my husband had the new York strip, both were cooked perfect and the taste was amazing! They give me a free piece of cheesecake for my birthday and it was delicious! They also took our picture for my bday and printed for us at no cost,, a special touches! We also got the flambé and it was a fun and tasty experience!

A classic steak house in Waikiki. The service, wine and of course the food was amazing. I had the Beef Wellington (again). Everytime I intend to order somehting different but I think Hy's has the best Beef Wellington I've ever had so I end up odereing it again. Others in our party enjoyed the kiawe wood smoked steak and were not disappointed. Hy's combination of great, food, great service and ambiance are amazing.

Hy's is one of the best steakhouses on Oahu. The service is top notch, and the food is incredible. My husband had the Wagyu Tomahawk steak and it was out of this world.
The ambience is quiet elegance, and old world charm.
You'll need to save up to eat here, the prices are high, but it is worth every penny if you can afford it.
Be sure to try their signature Eastern Martini--delicious!

As dine- in restaurants are closing again, we wanted to go to Hy's for one last time until it reopens. Originally we had reservations for Thursday night. I received a call from Jonah to let me know the restaurant was closing and Wednesday was the last night that they would be open. He was so helpful and nice and was able to change my reservation to Wednesday night. We had reservations for 5:30 pm. We were taking our time with drinks and appetizers and enjoying spending time with my family. Our server was Randy and he and his team were really good. He would check back with us to see how we were doing and if we needed anything or if we were ready to order. We were not told that there was a time limit when we made our reservations. Someone (I think her name was Tanya) came to our table. Because of her mask, it was hard to understand. But we all felt the gist of her coming to our table was to tell us we needed to place our dinner order as there were a lot of people with orders put in before us and people were waiting for our table. She came off rude and condescending. Although I was given a thank you card from Hy's after being seated, I did not feel welcome or appreciated after she left our table. I think she said there were 60 people before us with orders in, so even if we ordered now, it would take a while for our entrees to arrive. This was not correct because our entrees came out very fast. This is the third time this year that we have eaten at Hy's and this is one of my husband's favorites restaurants. After this last meal, it will be a long time before we will be back.

Amazing personalized service. & attention from Manager JONAH. HIs staff including Neal & Kirby was OUTSTANDING! As usual. the Cheese Bread, Seafood Tower,& Ribeye Steak was delicious. One little drawback, was that after A Total GuestCheck of about $300, there were extra uncharge charges for Bleu Cheese Olives in our Martini & a Side of Anchovies for our Steak.( Don't mind paying, but we should be informed before an automatic upcharge.

My wife and I went to Hy’s for her birthday. In short, the food was fantastic, the service was excellent, the overall experience was exceptional. We love going to Hy’s! I had the filet mignon. It was grilled to perfection! My wife had the Beef Wellington and could not have been more satisfied. Simply a wonderful experience!
