The service at Hy's is exemplary from reservations to the valet and everything in between. I sent my parents here for their 39th anniversary because I knew they would be taken care of. They had nothing but rave reviews for the food, their servers, and the experience overall. The only thing they missed was Hy's resident musician, Audy Kimura. Every time I've dined at Hy's myself has been a wonderful experience. I hope to continue dining here for years to come.

East Coast Steak House in Waikiki, steaks and service were outstanding. Heading back the next time we are in town. Always a good sign, in a tourist area, local families enjoying an evening out.

My only concern or complaint is that I ordered champagne 2 glasses - I wanted to order a bottle but I was told I could not - I got charged for two glasses of champagne at $25.00 each which was $50.00 which I then ordered another bottle - the waiter should of inform me the price of a glass of champagne before bringing it to the table so that I could of had the option to purchase the bottle instead .

Overall the food was excellent!!

Went to Hy's this past Sunday (4/25) for a birthday dinner. It was my first time there but worth it. The waiter that helped us (Jerell) was great at his job. Explaining the menu and the choices with a lot of information as well. He was very attentive to not only us but the other tables as well. Only concern I would say is that even though they were gloves for safety measures, I have never seen them change gloves from table to table. I think that was the only thing that bothered me.

Hy's is always a favorite, but it was great to return after such a long hiatus as a result of Covid. Despite the staff having to work with such severe handicaps as remaining masked and gloved throughout the service, everyone was just tremendous. During this past week, we had the opportunity to eat at 3 high end Honolulu/Waikiki restaurants. Without a doubt Hy's surpassed the others with ease. The reception and seating went very smoothly. Our table was a booth and one of the best in the place, close, but not too close to the grill. We accepted the recommendation of the special which was Wagyu beef ribeye. Wow. Very tasty, tender and perfectly done. We felt very comfortable and safe here after such a long period of isolation. This is not a complaint, just a wistful wish, we hope Audi is able to play again at Hy's soon. We missed him.

I have been dining at Hy’s Steakhouse since the 1970s and the food and service have been excellent. The only downside is that the dress code has been relaxed and we still saw a few diners in T-shirts shorts, and sandals.

The valet parking was very nice! It is certainly an issue that I don't care to mess with in the heart of a city. We were promptly shown our table at 5:00. Josh was our primary waiter for the evening. He did a commendable job. He was amicable, knowledgable and direct we we needed him to be. He did a great job mixing the side table salad. It was great. The entrees were tasty and cooked exactly as ordered. Josh then made us a cherry cordial flambe table side. It was spot on perfect. The shot of brandy at the end capped the meal off perfectly. The courses were all appropriately spaced, which is always nice. Something did seem to be lacking about the experience, maybe off-putting. Perhaps it was too noisy (?), perhaps we could have had better seating (?) such that we were more isolated from others ... I don't know. It was a fun, memorable time. Overall, we certainly recommend.

We've been to Hy's quite a few times and this is the first time we were a little disappointed. We order the special of the day, the Tomahawk steak for two done medium rare. Our other food was as delicious as ever but the Tomahawk steak was not quite up to Hy's standards, While it's suppose to be a ribeye steak it wasn't as tender or as juicy and tasty as a ribeye. The meat was chewy and a little tough but it was medium rare in color. I'm sure we'll go to Hy's again but I am sure we won't order another Tomahawk steak.
