This was my boyfriend and my's first time at Hy's and I can't put into words how amazing it was. We decided to go for our anniversary and since we had a gift card we said: "Why not!!" The servers, the food, and everything else were outstanding. Will definitely go there again when I have the chance.

All I can say is wow! I’m speechless about this place yet I can’t stop talking about it! The food was perfect, everything I ate was the best I’ve ever had. We started with the seafood tower and escargot, both so fresh and tasty. Then we had the table side Caesar salad, which they even make the dressing from scratch at the table as well and it was the best Caesar dressing I’ve ever had. Then we split the Delmonico steak which was so flavorful and cooked to absolute perfection. Ended things with the dolce dessert which I thought was going to be too much but again...just wow, so perfectly balanced between sweet and salty. They also brought us out a slice of cheesecake which again, wow! Real vanilla bean was used and quality ingredients. I had their signature old fashioned to go with dessert and once again I was blown away. This dinner will be a hard one to beat! And the staff was amazing and friendly as well. I will 100% be coming back!

Walked to Hy’s from the Royal Hawaiian. Our first dinner in Waikiki area. Everything was great!
They have a nice wine list and we chose a very nice 2014 Sandrone Barbera D’Alba. A really good wine for just $60.
We shared their Pan Seared Shrimp Appetizer and I as great. My wife had the Prime Rib and I had the Filet, both were excellent.
The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and service is excellent. Their menu is very nice with many items that sound delicious.
Highly recommend Hy’s.

Great friendly service. Ambiance was very nice and tables safely distanced. Felt very comfortable eating indoors there. Steak is always delicious and other side dishes were good, also. Was a little sad they don’t offer their lava cake, but the other desserts were good, too. Very enjoyable dinner overall!

The staff was amazing, so polite and thoughtful. The food was delicious and was brought to our table quickly. The only thing I can say that can be improved on is the lighting. I understand you're trying to set a mood but the place is so poorly lit I almost pulled out my cellphone to use the flashlight.

I can’t believe that after visiting Oahu for all these years, I have never been to Hy’s Steakhouse!!! And now I can’t wait to go back. We were promptly seated and a table in the corner right Ext to the grill. We got a show all through dinner watching the chef grill all of the wonderful pieces of beef. I was with tow meat eaters and they were in heaven. We started with the seafood tower and escargot….actually, we started with delicious cocktails. The appetizers were delicious. We ordered the tomahawk steak and the bone-in ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection and mouth-watering. We ended with bananas foster and the White Russian. If you are a meat person, this is the place to go. The dining room was beautiful and the service was outstanding!!

Hy's is a classic fine dining steakhouse. The food is fantastic and the service will be better than you have ever had. It's pricy but about what you would expect. Great for a special occasion! Every time we are in Honolulu, we will enjoy Hy's!

I haven't been to Hy's in a long time but stepping into the restaurant last night helped me remember why I won't wait too long to return. Hy's is classic and beautiful with all the elegance of a European-style restaurant. The staff is friendly, professional and attentive. Our dishes arrived as specified and our meals cooked to perfection. The Banana Foster is still a favorite and our server Dayle did an excellent job. Bob is the consummate gentleman and host. And seeing Kirby again was like coming home! I'll be back in July!

You will never have better service or more attention to details! We ventured out and tried the escargot and it was amazing and fresh. The white shrimp was succulent and finished with a citrus wine reduction. Delicious. We both had to try the Chilean sea bass Wellington and though the fish was cooked perfectly, the dish didn’t work for me, but it was great. I am not complaining, just saying the steak looked to be a better choice.

Beautiful restaurant but disappointed in the steak. Ordered a very expensive tomahawk expecting amazing flavor and got a pretty boring flavor steak. It’s possible the restaurant does not season their meat .. very disappointed

We go to Hy's for all of special occasions. It is our favorite treat from the Caesar's salad prepared table side, the excellent cuts of meat which are prepared without any butter topping (yuck), to the cherries jubilee or bananas Foster which are also prepared table side. Birthdays, anniversaries, and celebrations are all enjoyed at Hy's! Brett always takes great care of us no matter how busy he is!!!!
