I usually have the prime rib which is excellent. This time I had the roast duck and that was also very good. The atmosphere and the service is always relaxing and courteous. A must if you want to experience dining with a touch of somethng extra.

Had great service from Colin. Entrees were nice but the steaks for which they are renowned for were a little bit average. Would give it a second chance as some of the dishes were great.

Like I did. Scallops were cold inside. For $50? I think not... And a $15 per person Caesar with WAY too much vinegar? Plus the restaurant itself is over-air-conditioned. I won't go back.

I expected a lot more. Delmonico steak - EXCEPTIONALLY fatty. The steak came under cooked for what I asked for. They redid it but it wasn't much better. At $50 for the steak - it should be perfect. My dinner companion had beef wellington - he said his meat dish was good. Side vegetables - Both of our vegetables were... More

Still very busy with waiters in tuxedoes. Very large menu with a fair wine list. Great steaks and really good service. Stay away from flambes they are not a good as they sound. Overall has been in business a long time and has maintained ahigh level still

If you like Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Flemings and Donovans then you will love this place. The decor and romantic settings in the main dining room and bar overlooking the central open grilling area is incredible and cozy at the same time. The waiters are truly professional, good conversationalist and have excellent knowledge of the menu and how each and every... More

My husband and I visited Hy's for his birthday dinner during our first-ever trip to Hawaii. I had contacted the restaurant beforehand to request a seat in the library, and we were not disappointed by our lovely corner booth, which felt very intimate while also giving us a great view over the rest of the room. The service was flawless... More

I look forward to Hy's Steakhouse every year. For the past ten New Year's Eves, I've had the privilege to eat here with my extended family, and I look forward to it every year. I recommend the escargot as an appetizer; my wife gets it every time. The crab legs are fantastic and the shells are cut open for you,... More

We had dinner here recently and the service seemed great at first. Waiters tag teamed tables and came around often making sure we had drinks and were satisfied. However, my wife ordered a steak medium and it came out bloody raw, we asked them to cook it more and they did and it came back cooked on the outside, but... More
