Excellent service and fantastic meal for my wife's Birthday. They really went out of their way to make her feel special. The steaks were cooked perfectly and it was definitely a 5 star meal and experience.

Unfortunately, they were out of three of the four entrees that we ordered which forced us to order meals that we weren’t excited about. Neither our server nor any other staff member was apologetic about the inconvenience and no gestures were made on their end to accommodate us for the experience. The food was average at best and not worth the price point.

We celebrated our Anniversary here while In town. The food was wonderful and the service impeccable! Everything flowed well from the complimentary valet service at the door to the check being ready right when we wanted it. Highlights were Banana foster table side and the wonderful pic they took for us and surprised us with a printed copy. Can’t wait to go back and try a few more items off their menu.

Steaks were just ok. Very pricey. I have eaten at many high end steakhouses and this is not worth the money. It took over 35 minutes after our salads for the steaks to arrive. Our waiter and busboy were very attentive.

I don’t know where to begin, everything from the reservation booking to checking in at the restaurant, being seated, service throughout our meal and paying the bill, was extremely satisfying to say the least. I am so impressed with the service, the presentations, the food, the ambiance, EVERYTHING, was just amazing. I’ve been to Hy’s several times before but it’s been years since we had the opportunity to dine here. I must say, we were not disappointed at all! It’s very comforting to know this restaurant remained consistent throughout the years. We had an anniversary dinner planned at Lawry’s in Hollywood, California, we left so disappointed and frustrated, given their reputation, and not even having the chance to dine there. Hy’s certainly needed to be our first choice in celebrating anything going forward! Thank you for an unforgettable experience! A special thank you to our outstanding server Brett and Teresa, you’ve really made our evening special.

We got a last minute reservation and sat down with no wait. Unfortunately, our table was in the back corner by the server station, so the ambiance was disappointing. Food was okay. Table side presentation was great. Overall, good one time experience.

Best meal I’ve had while in Waikiki. Caesar salad was made from scratch table side, and the Bone-in Ribeye was perfect. We capped the evening off with the Bananas Foster table side flambé which was amazing. Overall worth every penny and would highly recommend.

Let me start by saying the staff at Hy’s were gracious and apologetic over the issues experienced during our dining experience.

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation time and the valet took our car and explained the cleaning process promptly. We were seated almost immediately after a quick non-invasive health screen.

The waiter came around soon after and offered us a rundown of the menu and told us about the special of the evening ( a wagyu tomahawk). Upon his return with our drinks we ordered an appetizer and decided to snag one of the 3 remaining tomahawks for our meal alongside the surf and turf dinner. (Filet & lobster).

Pricing for these meals was high — as expected for a fine dining steakhouse in Hawaii, but with that came high expectations for quality of product. We got our appetizers quickly, no more than 15 minutes after ordering them. I got the scallops, which were delicious but be warned there are only 2 on the plate! My wife got the oysters on the half shell and was satisfied with the portion and quality.

We waited for about 25 minutes until the manager came over. I expected the stop to be a routine “how is your visit hope everything is nice, etc.”; unfortunately the manager came to make us aware that our waiter had misinformed us on the tomahawk situation and that there were none available. I was concerned that it took 25 minutes for this to be discovered, and assumed someone else must have ordered the meal and they were the “lucky winner” instead of us. Begrudgingly, my wife ordered the ribeye instead and after 15 more minutes our food arrived.

Her meal came as requested, with mashed potatoes and vegetables. My steak came as requested, but there was an order of unwanted vegetables on my plate as well as a mound of chives on the baked potato that I had requested not be there. After a few minutes the manager came back over and I told him about the potato (I didn’t mean took the vegetables, I just shoved them to one side of the plate)

The service was excellent. The quality of the food was very average, especially for the cost. The crab legs did not taste fresh, the lobster tail was too chewy, the lamb was undercooked, etc.

Went here for my fiancé’s birthday. Awesome service. Steaks were excellent. Parking was free. Just had to tip the valet. We got a table way in that back in this cove like thing. It was great. Very quite. The open areas of the restaurant were pretty noisy for an upscale restaurant. I would definitely request a booth to help buffer noise.

The food and ambiance is unsurpassed. By and large the service is fantastic with a couple of nit picks. The prices are among the highest I’ve seen in Honolulu; too high in my view, but comparable to Ruth’s Chris and Morton’s with better ambiance. The prices are not not completely unreasonable considering the quality of the food and number of servers waiting on you. I keep Hy’s on my list as a “Special Occasion” restaurant only: New Year, Christmas, Easter, Major Birthday, Wedding Proposal etc. It’s too expensive for regular visits. Example: most cocktails in Honolulu at top restaurants are $10-17. At Hy’s they are $20. The lowest priced entree is $46. Worth it probably, but very high prices and really good. Enjoy the experience once in a while.

This was the third time we've eaten at Hy's and the first two were great experiences. This one, not so much. In short summary, loud vulgar people seated next to us. No cheese bread brought out despite us asking for it (tales around us received theirs). Gnats flying around. I hope this was a one time thing relating to restarting operations post covid.

It was a delicious meal, the service was impeccable. Theresa was on top of our every need, she even offered to snap some pictures of us to commemorate the kid free night. We had the sea food tower for an appetizer which was delicious. I had the garlic steak with wild mushrooms which was cooked to perfection for my entree, and I snuck a bite of my other half’s ribeye which was to die for. The cheesecake was decadent. Everything was amazing.

Not what I expected in a good way. The moment we came through the door we knew we were in for a wonderful evening. The drinks were tasty, the food delicious and the bananas foster at the table side added a special element to the evening. We Will be back.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday. My brother, Ryan, who is the Captain there, took very good care of us. He greeted us and talked with us. He did a great job explaining the menu and making recommendations. The service was perfect and the food was outstanding. He gave us a complementary photograph and a slice of cheesecake with fruit. Best steak on the island.

It was a great dining experience. Celebrated 62nd birthday for my husband with our cousins. Staff did an excellent service from the time you walk in to the door. The food was excellent from the appetizers (escargot), main entree (rack of lamb) and the finishing touch of Kona coffee and Banana Foster for the dessert. We will definitely recommend this place to all our family and friends. We will be back soon.
Thank you for you excellent service.
