The food and service is outstanding
To be or not to be, that is the question: Whether tis' nobler in the mind to dine at Hys
The drinks and food of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a sea of Old Fashioned
And by opposing end them: to itis, to looking at the bill
Food slaps yo. Servers are humans, not robots like the ones at poshy New York steak houses, yo. The bill literally however, slaps your face...yo.
I would highly recommend Hy’s for a special occasion while in Hawaii
Amazing ! We came here for our honeymoon and servers were very attentive and food was delicious !
This is a classic, old school steakhouse experience. It’s nice to not go to an upscale chain steakhouse and Hy’s always delivers the quality of service and product that keeps us coming back. The wine selection is bountiful, the service is great and the product is always constant. It’s a solid steakhouse that benefits from also bing in the heart of Waikiki.
The service always includes a serving of cheese bread, but I skip it to save room for the delights yet to come.
I can’t help but start with the buttery, garlicky escargot. It’s always done right.
As for salads, serviceable but you are really here for the beef. The Caesar is a nice show, the wedge is fine. But seriously, just eat the beef.
You can smell the wood fire outside and actually watch them grill your steak inside. This time it was the fillet, rare. And perfectly rare it was - which is indeed a rarity - as most steakhouses seem to overcook their beef. The steaks are served with choice of potato as well as a small side of veggies (nice not to have a full a’ la carte menu sometimes). Add some seafood or a myriad of sauces to your taste.
Desserts vary but are sufficient, if not exciting.
It’s not a chain, it has its own charm, the service and food are solid. We keep coming back.
We celebrated my Wife’s Birthday here and it couldn’t have been any better! The staff was great and the steak (and all food) was excellent. We are cattle producers on the Mainland and know beef. This is excellent, but it is also priced accordingly. Just be prepared.
Wait staff was excellent ,very formative and friendly
I was treated very disrespectfully at check in. I have eaten regularly at Hy’s for years. I was one of the only patrons dining there when the restaurant was open, off and on during the last 20 months. The management of Hy’s does not seem to value the loyal residents of Hawaii who have supported them through out these ever changing times.
it was best choice for honeymoon aniversary
mood, food, service was so excellent!!
Haven’t been since pre-pandemic and it still met expectations. Menu has changed slightly but still excellent!
The most amazing evening and dinner of our lives…
Epic cuisine from beginning to end and the best service on the island.
Thank you Jon, Taro, Robert and Randall!
Table side food preparation is a perfect touch to a perfect evening of fine dining at Hy’s! Service is over the top
Great food and service as always.
They made our anniversary very special. Perfect food, service and ambiance.
Excellent dinner! This is truly a gem in the middle of Honolulu, with its mahogany library meets old school steakhouse feel. It’s nice to happen upon spots like this with most newer, more modern restaurants boasting similarity.
Food: my husband and I opted for the table side Caesar to begin. $40 Caesar for two is a bit overdone, but this is also something they’re known for, and it serves both entertainment and taste. Was delicious. We then followed with the beef Wellington and the filet with garlic sauce…both tender, cooked perfectly, and tasty. Dessert for our anniversary celebration was unexpected at the end and was also a delicious end to a delicious meal!
Service: Top Notch- you can tell they really care and want to make a good impression from the moment you walk up to the moment you leave.
I will say the Covid vaccine card check, temperature check, and contact tracing info seems a bit much, but this is almost everywhere in Honolulu right now.
Bonus: live music with dinner, a window in one of
the main dining rooms you can watch them actually cook steaks through, and a printed anniversary photo at the end of dinner!
Wow, what a nice review! Thank you for taking your time to post this and thank you, of course, for dining with us! I hope you have a great holiday season! Bob Panter, Guest Relations
The sever Theresa was very attentive. Went there on recommendation while visiting Hawaii. We started with crab cakes that had more filler then actually crab in them. The wedge salad was average. Steak Delmonico was delicious. Our Martini was also great. The dessert was skimpy. They new we were celebrating my husband’s birthday and actually acknowledgment it on the bill but did not bring anything to the table.
Wonderful atmosphere and ambience, service and food!
Food & Service, consistently excellent, always one of the best dining out experiences!
Top of the top service, delicious and creative food and beautiful decor.
amazing food and services!!!!!!
The best food I've ever had. The steaks are to die for. You will not regret spending extra for such a delightful experience
Great Food with great service!!!!! What a spectacular dinner experienced!!!
Food is great. Friendly staff and awesome service is what made our experience memorable. Definitely will be returning. Thank you Hy’s!
Awesome service and amazing food. Must check it out.
Amazing amazing food.
As usual, the food and service was impeccable. Hy’s never disappoints and is probably the best and classiest restaurant in Hawaii. Always enjoy coming here and will continue to do so.
This was the worst steakhouse I’ve been to in my life. We shared the feedback with the restaurant and they were very willing to make things right. I would not recommend going here even though the staff was nice. A shame.
Fabulous anniversary and birthday dinner. The ambiance was very pleasurable.
Excellent food and service as always. Never fails to impress
A terrific place to go for special occasions or just for a fancy night out. Service is amazing, prime rib and NY steak were quality meat that melt in your mouth. Would definitely go again.
Hy’s Steak House, easily has the coziest and most peaceful atmosphere of all the restaurants in the Waikiki area. The food is delicious, and make sure to get dessert!
Salty salty salty. Nothing like the Hy’s in Canada.
Enjoyed our last night in Honolulu at this land mark restaurant.
A warm experience with great service and an elegant interior .
If your looking for a great classic continental style dining away from the touristy more of the same trend steak houses this is the place. Had table side excellent Cesar salad! Oysters Rockefeller. My partner had classic steak pouvier and I had lobster tail.
The place is classic charming with character Honolulu history. Oh and they serve a great cocktail as well.
A Honolulu 70’s style experience with timeless classic steak house specialitys.
Totally awesome, especially loved the table side preparation of Bananas Foster
Outstanding in every way from tag team service to a flavorful prime rib that melts in your mouth! Wonderful place to spend an anniversary!
Service staff was professional and friendly. Food was simply delicious. The table side salad was perfect. My wife would not share any with me. Cherries Jubilee was very tasty. A very nice way to celebrate our anniversary together.
