Great atmosphere...fine dining in Aloha atire...classy setting for the wife’s BDay... slight downside was that it was a bit too warm at one point in the evening with all the table side cooking and full House...great wine list, though sparse on red Zins, my personal preference with a hearty steak...

Have been coming here for years to celebrate special occasions. Was really disappointed this time. I noted it was a birthday dinner when I made the res, but no bday dessert or picture. They put us at a back table next to the wait station and private room so there were distractions throughout the whole meal. We wanted more bread but no one ever asked us if we did. Food is still good but service wasn't up to par this time. Took forever to get the check and we had to ask for it. This is definitely not the Hy's we have been accustomed to. Probably will go elsewhere from now on because of this experience.

One of our favorite restaurants to celebrate special occasions. Late night reservations preferred because the early dinner crowd is thinned out and it's quieter. Excellent service provided by team of 3. This is the only place that serves traditional beef Wellington - perfect every time I've ordered it, which is more than 15 times. If you want to have fine dining with white tablecloths, dark wood interior and waiters in black suits, this is the place to go. It's still a nice casual atmosphere without a strict dress code. We'll be back!

Great night out at Hy's. We brought the kids out to celebrate dad's birthday. One of the best times we've had at Hy's which we like to come out to several times a year. They really take good care of you and the food is fantastic.

We are never disappointed at Hy's. The food is perfectly cooked and the service is just awesome! Our waiter, Jeff, was attentive, friendly and seasoned pro at the table side Ceasar's salad and Bananas Foster. Ricardo, the bus attendant, was also extraordinary -- anticipating our needs -- water was refilled frequently, table cleared and set for the next course, coffee kept hot -- perfect!

Have been travelling for a number of days and really had not had a dinner worth the name. Famished. Explored Open Table and found Hy's. After a short walk from or beach condo slipped into another world: dark wood paneling, 16th century art work and subdued conversations. One would never know they were steps away from Waikiki Beach. And the food was to die for...outstanding!

I haven't been to Hy's in a long time, but I got a gift card, so decided to use it. The food was really amazing! We were a party of four and we all got some form of steak. I had the beef wellington and it was probably the best dish of the table and cooked a perfect medium (which is what I asked for). But you absolutely must try one of their tableside desserts. I did the bananas foster, but the cherries jubilee is also amazing. It was a lot more crowded than I remember, so reservations are a must. It has old world charm that you can't find in new, trendy restaurants. And we could hear ourselves talk! Amazing!

Service was a little slow at times. We waited an overly long time for dessert menu, etc. It seems as if our server was not being assisted by other servers. Server took a picture for birthday celebration but we were not given it. We had to ask for it at the check in counter on the way out.

The Thanksgiving brunch was perfect. Everything we ate was delicious, especially the persimmon-pear crumble. As always, the service was top-notch. Glasses refilled, utensils replaced promptly, checked on us without interrupting. The background guitar player made the atmosphere even better. Thanks again for a dining experience we can always count on.

Hy's has always been consistent in serving the best steaks and having outstanding service. Their lobster bisque is to die for, and the table-side salads or flambes very special. They also do great little extras like providing a free birthday dessert (cheesecake) and taking a photo to mark the special occasion.

Now I've noticed additional extras like a logo'd tote bag to take your leftovers home in, and amazing chocolate candies (dark truffle) to replace the after-dinner mints. They apparently sell these signature chocolates themselves, in different flavors.

The acoustics are notable -- even with a full room it's very quiet and pleasant to have a conversation. It's not a cheap place to eat, but you get top notch food and service for your money. I will always go back there.

We made a special trip to Oahu for two nights to dine at our favorite restaurants! Our first stop was Hy’s! The food, service (Theresa was great), and ambiance including the musical entertainment was amazing! Don’t miss the Caesar Salad for Two, prepared table-side. We loved the special touches such as the chilled forks and plates that accompanied the salad. The filet Oscar was very tasty! It was too bad that we did not have room for the Bananas Foster, also prepared table-side. We did get to watch the show from the table next to ours. Hy’s, you did not disappoint! Thank you for such a great experience. We just hope it is not another seven years until our next visit! Mahalo for everything!
