お店の雰囲気はとても良い。口コミほど美味しいお肉ではなかった。注文時に無理強いはよしてほしい。二人でガーリックステーキをシェアしたいと言ったら、こんなに小さいから足りないと思う的なことを。薦められたステーキを食べたが、やはり日本人の女性二人には多い。無駄に残った。もったいない。帰るときも、挨拶なし。なんのためのチップなのか。もっと良い店と思ったが次回はない。

I've been a regular customer of Hy's since the 1980's. I love the British Club feel of the place and the full dress staff who by the way are extraordinarily talented. There is something about the smell of Kiawe from the big round grill at the end of the room that I find comforting and Homey. Of note is the fact that after probably 50 or 60 meals at those tables I have never had an improperly prepared steak or chop. The appetizers, sides and deserts are classic and flawless.
We in Honolulu have a few very good Steak Houses and I've tried them all. Hy's is my and my families personal favorite and most likely always will be.

The service seemed inconsistent. The steak knives came after the plates were on the table and we had to ask for the knives. We asked for the condiments for the baked potatoes and waiter had to have it refreshed and come back again. The head waiter did not come back to ask how the food was but it was cordial at the end.

Randy/Logan/bus boy we’re outstanding service. They made us feel comfortable. Randy told us a special cut of the cow. The best steak on the house was superb. The opakapaka was so thick and the flavor was awesome. The banana flan with ice cream was delicious. We recommend to come back again. Superb!

Went to Hy’s last night for my sons 25th birthday. I heard great things and it did not disappoint. The aged New York Waygu 11oz was the chef special. I asked for it medium and it was cooked perfectly. The Bananas Foster flambé is also a must service was great and we had a good time

ハワイ最後の食事で訪れました。大人な雰囲気ですが、小さな子供連れでもウェルカムなので安心して食事ができます。
日本語メニューや日本語堪能なスタッフ がいるのも安心できました。
炭で丁寧に焼いたお肉やフランベデザートでのパフォーマンス、全てが大満足でした。
ただ子供が寝ても大丈夫なようにと奥のソファー席にしていただきましたが、生演奏が聞こえない位置だったのでそこだけが残念です。

As with all restaurants with a fleet of waiters service is patchy. It would be nice if our table had a dedicated waiter.

Hy' s seems to have specific waiters for specific tasks. Got a bit confusing at times. Wine is pricey but good and available by the glass.

We opted for Chateaubriand medium but it came up medium rare but not bloody. It is finished at your table and this waiter was particularly inexperienced in my view. However the food was good but not the best steak I have eaten.

Meal for two with three glasses of wine, no starter, nor desert was $220 without service. Very nice decor - like an ancient country club. Massive dining space and very popular with noisy Japanese and their noisier children. Worth a try but betting you can get a better steak elsewhere in Waikiki.

This was our first time at Hy’s Restaurant and we loved it. Service was incredible and the entire staff was excellent. We had the Beef Wellington which was amazing and the presentation was wonderful.
Thanks to Theresa, Brice, Daniel and Rutger and the rest of the staff for a fantastic evening.
Mahalo!

Hy's is the ultimate dining experience with gracious attentive service, well prepared food and an old world atmosphere. We enjoyed the Caesar salad, half rack of lamb and a half order of king crab legs served with drawn butter. Everything came out perfectly and we look forward to returning soon.
