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.

Amazing service and food. From the moment we were greeted upon arrival all the way through dessert. Truly impeccable, all servers were outstanding and friendly. Special recognition to Stefanie, who made us feel at home and made a wonderful wine suggestion. This was by far the best dining experience in Honolulu, we will be back for sure!

Phenomenal service. Although dinner here maybe a little expensive, the price is worth the value in the quality of food and customer service.

Came here for our 2nd year anniversary- wasn't disappointed whatsoever. Highly recommend the creamed spinach and the ribeye.

The overall setting of Hy’s is great and sets the mood for a nice romantic dinner. We had the prime rib and the beef Wellington both were amazing. We will come back again.

My prime rib was very tough and I have never had a prime rib that was tough before. Our waiter was extremely nice and courteous. Overall the meal was good but definitely not for the price we paid.

Hy’s is a true gem in Waikiki. We’ve been dining here for over 15 years and the service and cuisine are always five star. The setting is elegant and the wine list is sterling.

This is the first time I had been to Hy’s in over 20 years. Our waiter was very helpful making suggestions throughout the night.
I really enjoy steaks. I spend a little more effort on learning to cook steaks than the average person. I rarely order a steak when eating out because I like to think I make a pretty decent steak at home. But at the waiter’s recommendation I tried the Delmonico. It was delicious.
The appetizer, salad, and dessert were also delicious.
As you might expect, service was fantastic all night. From the valet, to the hostess, to the wait staff, to the dessert maker.
Luckily the night we attended Audy Kimura was playing. It would have been nice if the volume on the speaker system was turned up. But I guess not every guest is an Audy Kimura fan.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable night and we’ll probably return in the near future to explore the menu.

Our first server that greeted us in the beginning, Taro who happened to be informed about our experience at their sister restaurant La Vie, the restaurant had happen to offer us a complementary champagne to start the night celebrating two birthdays at our table. The food was great, it always has been that way for many years. and the service received have always been great there. We love how every servers are professionals here, well trained and knows how to serve guests. Definitely one of my favorite on Honolulu to dine at!

The service was great! Very personable, polite and cordial servers. Food was great as usual - table size Caesar salad is always the best! Tried the tomahawk wagyu for the first time and it was very tender. Banana flame at the end was the best (it’s actually what I came for)!

Celebrated birthday with friends.... 4 of us on Feb 18. Painfully flow service. Waiter not attentive , forgot sauces requested, entree came very slow... Steaks were OK but not nice and hot off the grill...

No way does the service or sides compare to Ruth Chris waikiki....

You guys lost me as a customer unfortunately... such great ambience but service management is lacking...

I think you get too many tourists who don't know what good service is and they won't be back so you don't care....

A classic steakhouse that must be experienced! There isn't an item on their incredible menu that I wouldn't recommend. The king crab legs are to die for. If you are into escargot... it is amazing! The beef choices are many and all are better than you've ever had anywhere else. The rack of lamb... Wow! Check it out!

Lived up to the reviews! Delicious food and wonderful personalized service! We went there for our anniversary and they made the occasion feel special. Very cool how the chef cooks the steaks in a little room in full view too! Would definitely recommend eating here.

My husband and I have been coming to Hy's for the past 7 years for our Wedding Anniversary. Never have we ever thought of celebrating elsewhere. It has now become a "must go place" for us. And this time around, we actually brought our 4yr old daughter with us. Surprisingly she loved the place. She enjoyed the whole experience (food, service and the place). The servers were very friendly to her, and she loved it because it made her feel special. She liked the idea of displaying books as well.

Came here for a belated Valentine's dinner and couldn't have been more impressed. Our server, Mike, as well as our busser Jesse, were great and personable. Mike's table-side caesar salad was easily the best caesar salad we've had yet. The scallops appetizer was mouth watering and the crab legs were worth every penny. That plus the amazing craft cocktails and acoustic music made for a wonderful night out. It can be a little pricey, but the experience itself is worth it for a special occasion.

Dining at Hys is an awesome experience every time we have had the pleasure over the past 35 plus years. It continues to be my favorite restaurant. The ambiance is perfect for dining with friends and family, or for a date night. The service is always exceptional from the warm welcome from the valet, to the greeting at the desk, to the unparalleled service of the wait staff and the attention of the floor staff. It is always a delight to be recognized as returning patrons and greeted accordingly. The food is consistently exquisite. The favorites are always as good, if not better, as the previous visit. Looking forward to our next visit.

It was fantastic. Knowing that I’m going to a fine dinning restaurant on a big holiday “Valentines day” was a bit scary thinking it would be too hectic. But I was wrong, the service exceeded professionalism and tended to our needs precisely. Thank you for granting my request of a booth, as well as the surprise message on the desert for my girlfriend. She was speechless. And I couldn’t be more appreciative hearing our waiter say “the dessert is on us”, that was amazing and unexpected. The little details that you guys emphasize on, like roses upon entrance and personal framed pictures is the reason why I only choose Hy’s. Truly exceptional. Thank you for the best Valentines Day dinner we’ve ever had.

The food and service were good considering it was Valentines and very busy. The only bad thing was at the end of the night our bill was incorrect (charged for five drinks instead of three). Our waiter was apologetic and fixed it right away. Then another man- not our waiter- came with our corrected bill and started saying how the two drinks we drank at the bar were not on our tab.. I said “no, the problem was there were two extra drinks on our tab. I also inquired about a happy hour beer price and he could have just said I’m sorry let me check.” He was argumentative and seemed to be trying to cover his okole for the drink overcharge. (I assume he was the one who put his drinks on our waiter’s tab by mistake?) He just made things worse and seemed like he was blaming us for his mistake or the mistake of the restaurant. In any case, it was about a 40 dollar difference that we were lucky we caught before paying. If the grey haired waiter/manager looking guy didn’t come at the end and make us feel like we did something wrong for calling out the drink screw up, it would have been 4 or 5 stars. Unfortunately, this will probably be our last visit. I’d rather not pay $250 to be treated like that.
