Steak
A “USDA PRIME BEEF” SPECIALTY HOUSE
Hy's Steak House is an award winning restaurant in the heart of Waikiki. Open in 1976, Hy's has been a favorite of locals & visitors for 40 years. Hy’s proudly serves 100% All Natural “Never-Ever” USDA Prime beef, the finest quality beef on the market. We believe our process retains the tenderness & taste of the meat while reducing the fat content appreciably. Hy’s uses native Hawaiian Kiawe wood as it cooks with a more intense even heat & complements the flavor of fine beef.
Hy's boasts an exquisite wine list with an emphasis on reds from the most reputable vineyards from around the world.
The ambiance is Old-World, classic &very comfortable. Hy's Steakhouse enforces a strict dress code policy. Gentlemen are required to wear Collared Shirts and Covered Shoes. We kindly ask that all our guests refrain from wearing swimwear and baseball caps. Complimentary valet service available.

Hy’s came recommended from some friends but overall I am fairly disappointed. The service was attentive but uneven. We waited for a half an hour for our entree after our soup. The prime rib was without flavor and tough. I’ve paid quite a bit less and received a much more flavorful piece of much more tender meat. I will not return.

Excellent friendly and courteous staff! Attentive. Only place in Waikiki/Oahu will this ambiance, romantic touch. NY Steak was made extra to order but I admit the Filet was better having compared the two within a month's time. We went early so we practically had the place to ourselves, we missed listening to Audy for a longer period. Having been at Hy's over years, no disappointment in trying the rest of the menu. The tableside service for Caesar Salad and flambe is a favorite treat. The photograph was a nice moment for mark our birthday celebration.

Each visit to Honolulu takes me to Hy's where I always enjoy a delicious dinner. Its a great reminder of NY steak houses with the whole ambiance. The decorations, staff, menu, bar, etc make for an enjoyable evening. Thank you Hys!

The service and food were outstanding (as usual)! We had the escargot, sea bass and rack of lamb. Everything was done to perfection. For dessert, the Cherries Jubilee was just so right to end our evening! Hy’s is one of the best restaurants in Honolulu and they never disappoint. Will definitely go back!

とても雰囲気のある、有意義な時間を過ごすことが出来ました。
ちょっと疑問に思ったのが、上着は襟付き、下は長ズボンとありましたがデニムや短パンの方が居たことでした。格式のある雰囲気なのに
そぐわないようでした。

予約して行ったが、かなり奥の暗い席に案内された。席が空いているにも関わらず、生演奏が行われている中央の席には案内されない。帰りに客を見渡すと、日本人は隅の方に座らされている感じだった。スタッフひとりひとりの印象は概ね悪くはないが、全体的に日本人を軽視している感じは否めない。
また料理の味も肉の質も、価格には見合っていない。雰囲気だけを味わうなら行っても良いだろうが、美味しいものを食べたい方は行かない方がいい。

A fabulous meal. Great service. But expensive: Dinner for four with dessert and NO alcohol was $267.

The steak was the best I have ever had. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and the dessert (banana flambe) was out-of-the-world.

If you can afford it, GO!!!!

Hy’s is a normal monthly treat, service has waivered in the past but this last visit has made me rethink my choice of coming here so frequently, the server I had was one that I had never had before, he was extremely distracted and service was quite horrible, I’m extremely disappointed.

Hy's Steakhouse gave us another wonderful dining experience. A tradition for all celebrations, business dinners and happy hour with friends. All are welcoming and attentive. The food is of the highest quality every time we dine here. Caesar Salad, Rib Eye, Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb Crab legs, Lobster Mac and Cheese and Cherries Jubilee are our favorites.

We went to Hy's to witness my brother proposing to his girlfriend. From the time we entered to the time we left we felt like family and was treated perfect! Bob, at the front and the hostess (sorry forgot her name, she was very helpful) accommodated us, thru a little confusion with our reservations. Brett, & Glen were awesome, their personalities made it easy it ask questions and made us comfortable.
Service was impeccable. Thank you for such a great time and service.

This was our first time to Hy's Steakhouse and we were hosting guests from Japan along with celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Stuart and the wait team was very attentive and serviced our group extremely well. The food was excellent, with the steaks cooked exactly as requested, Superb desserts as well. Overall, it was a very enjoyable evening. Mahalo!

友人のおススメで伺いました。
メニューも友人におススメを聞いてから行ったのですが、
とても美味しかったです。
が、日本人の女性スタッフさんの接客は、一般の日本人の感覚では合わない接客だと感じました。

旅行でハワイを訪れているので、合わない接客だと感じても、それも旅行ならではと思うようにしていますが、、
日本でなら、日本人スタッフさんの接客では、
もう行きたいとは思いません。
文章にするのは難しいですが、アメリカンな考え方とゆうか、どう考えても、食べきれないであろうメニューを、頼むのは当たり前かのように、次々とメニューを頼み聞いてくる姿勢に、せっかくのステキな雰囲気と美味しいお食事が半減してしまう感覚でした。
私達は 量を食べる方ですが、、
友人に おすすめメニューを聞いて行かなかったら、絶対に食べきれない量を頼んでしまうとこでした。
日本人スタッフに接客され、つい頼んでしまった、サイドメニューも食べきれませんでした。
雰囲気とお肉は美味しかったので、
次回は、また機会があればとゆう感覚で覚えておこうかなと思う感覚です。
老舗な雰囲気、美術館の様な 店内はとてもとてもステキでした。

初めてのハワイで友人2人で伺いました。
コースじゃなくて、アペタイザーで注文しても2つに分けてくれたりととても柔軟に対応してくれ、お水もすぐ気付いて入れてくれたりと、とても気配りの管理がしっかりされてるレストランでした。
ステーキもボリュームがすごくて、2人では食べきれせんでした。
残ったものはテイクアウトできます。
料理の味付けは優しめなので、テーブル上に塩胡椒が置いてあります。
素材の味が感じられとっても美味しかったです。サラダがすごく新鮮でした!ドレッシングもたくさん種類があります。
比較的9時〜が空いていますので、予約が必要とれなくても遅い時間に行けば比較的入れました。
私たちもいけないと思って行けたのでとてもテンションが上がりました。
店内の雰囲気は重厚でとっても歴史の感じられるオシャレな空間でした。ちょっとしたドレスコードはあります。

バー席しか空いていなかったがどうしても行きたくて、家族で予約しました。重厚な店内に入ると通されたにはテーブル席で、しかも子どもが小さいからかソファーになって繋がっている席で、感激しました。ステーキはもちろん、サラダ等も美味しく、また細やかな接客にも感動し、またハワイに来る際にはここにも絶対と思いました。
