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.

Hys is the best steak on Waikiki. They work very diligently to insure a superior experience. Ask for a table in the "broiler" room. Best seat going

Hy's Steakhouse is the pinnacle of fine food, outstanding service, and a warm, encompassing atmosphere. All aspects are sheer perfection on every level. Our service team (Theresa, Randy, and Kirby) were superb in their knowledge, friendliness, and excellent quality of service. Simply the finest for that special occasion or just a terrific steak dinner!

The best service I have experienced ! My water glass was instantly being filled. I didn’t have to ask.
I was thankful for the complimentary dessert for my boyfriend who served 40 years with the Hawaii Air National Guard. Final nice touch to capture the memory with a framed photo.

牡蠣のグリルとフィレミニオン、アスパラガスのグリルをオーダーしました。全てとても美味しくて大満足でした。フィレはミディアムとウェルダンにしましたが、私はミディアムが気に入りました。
ハネムーンと誕生日のお祝いで予約してましたが、最後にサプライズでチーズケーキを出してくださり、嬉しかったです。
お腹いっぱいでしたが、そのチーズケーキもすごく美味しくてペロリといけました。
以前より値段が上がっていてやっぱり高いなーとは思いましたが、記念日等に利用するにはすごく良いと思います。
また機会があればぜひ行きたいお店です。

We had a 7:30 reservation. They were very busy. Which is understandable. But we waited an extra 30 minutes in this “very ugly/tacky” holding area that apparently belongs to the hotel. I requested a cocktail, but that was not possible. When we were finally seated it took a while to be offered a drink. Once they caught up with the crowd, the service was outstanding. Very professional, friendly and attentive.
We had heard wonderful things about the food and were disappointed. First off, the reason we came to this restaurant was for the tomahawk steak for two. Sold out. Then we tried to order something else on the specialty menus on line, only to find out it was no longer offered.
My husbands steak was very fatty (at $90 this is unacceptable) and the baked potatoes were not very warm. My filet was good, baked potato not hot, green beans overcooked the side order of asparagus and hollandaise were not hot and the sauce was cool. My scallops wrapped in bacon were not good at all and had a funky taste. They did take them off my bill, which I appreciated. They did send out a complimentary dessert for our anniversary, which was kind. Banana Foster was wonderful. Impression/underwhelmed.

サービス、食事、雰囲気とどれを取っても良いかと思います。ステーキは大きいサイズをシェアすると伝えると2つのお皿に分けて提供して頂いたり、記念日と伝えると小さなドルチェを用意して頂いたりと気遣いも素晴らしく記念日に相応しい食事となりました。

It’s always a pleasant dining experience at Hys. I think among the other steakhouses here in the island, Hys is my favorite. Steaks are consistently grilled to doneness every time I dine here. Their cheesecakes and flambé desserts are a must-try.

We will definitely be back here when the relatives are visiting.

We went there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Our server was Stephanie and she was excellent. It was the first time in about 30 years that we had a female server! She was the bomb and I say it’s about time!

We loved our booth in the library where we had a great view iof the entire main dining room. The service provided by our waiter Sheldon was exceptional. My garlic steak was cooked to perfection. However, the chicken my husband ordered was tough and dry. We thoroughly enjoyed the escargots and the bananas flambeau. All in all I truly enjoyed my birthday dinner.

We went for a special occasion and have been here before. Normally this is a five star experience but we were SHOCKED at how many families were in the restaurant with small children at 8:30 at night. Half were crying and the other half were asleep. One was even allowed to crawl on top of the table. None of this is Hy’s fault, but it would be difficult to have a romantic dinner for two with all the commotion. Is there a way to request not to be seated in the “family room” in the future?

We are steak lovers and enjoy exploring new venues. What impressed us first was the decor of the place the rich wooden paneling and feel of a classic high end steak house. They literally have the chef who prepares the steaks on a glass encased station that the glass was framed in rich mahogany carved posts. The chef was preparing the steaks on a wood fired grill, this I think is the main reason to come here - our steaks were perfectly prepared with an amazing Smokey flavor reminiscent of a mild mesquite flavor. Mine was prepared a perfect medium rare. My wife’s filet she said melted in her mouth. The baked potatoes were delicious and had a Smokey flavor as well.

On the negative side we always bring our own bottle of wine and were surprised that their corkage fee was $50.00 this is the highest fee we have ever been charged and we thought excessive. We also ordered their table side Cesar salad and were surprised that we were charged each $18.00 per person again we felt this was exorbitant for the item. The flavor of the salad was good but the server they had for us prepare it was in training and he forgot to add an important last ingredient - Parmesan cheese it would have been perfect had he added that last piece to the salad . Overall we liked the place and recommend it and enjoyed our meal.

久しぶりの3度目の訪店でした。
年老いた両親と一緒に伺うため、予約時に落ち着いた席をリクエストしていましたが、その通り一段高いソファー席をご案内頂き有り難かったです。
日本人フレンドリー感は特にないですが、日本語メニューはあります。

メインはサーロインステーキを父とシェアでしたが、やはり日本のそれとは異なるため、ほとんど残してしまいました。
それ以外のものも結構オーダーしたのですが、食べきることなく残してしまいました。(スターターのチーズトーストはなんだか冷めていた)

決して悪い評価をするつもりではないのですが、何というか…他の方が評価しているようなやっぱりリピートしたいと絶賛するほどの感動出来る味や心地よいサービス、パフォーマンスがあるという印象もなく、総合して正直楽しめたかどうかは毎回微妙です。

It was my birthday and of all the steak houses we’ve eaten at this was the best in my opinion. First off the front door is 10 feet away from your FREE valet parking which is a big plus for me. We actually arrived 45 minutes early but they were able to seat us in about 5 minutes after waiting in the lounge. The ambiance was relaxing especially with Audi Kimura playing.
