After a day of hiking and trying to find the elusive "hole in the fence", we decided to eat at Hy's in Honolulu/Wakiki. Made reservations for dinner at 5:45pm, the lady on the phone mentioned a dress code, "shorts okay," (paraphrased) just not beachwear. Whew! I got dat. We arrived a few minutes late and were swiftly seated by a... More

If you are looking for a "special" night out in Waikiki I couldn't rate Hy's any higher. The ambience is excellent with timber panelling, leather upholstery and crisp white linen. We were seated in a booth table overlooking the dining room. The service was exemplary and attentive but not over bearing, and the food was wonderful. The flambéed bananas dessert... More

I rarely get into Waikiki but Hy's is definitely worth a visit. The new Happy Hour menu is a good way to wind down.

This is a World Class restaurant. The service is awesome, the food is excellant and the atmosphere elegant. If you want an elegant and enjoyable dining experience then this is the restaurant for you. It's on the high price side but well worth the money spent. If I could give this restaurant a higher rating I would. I highly recommend... More

First, I strongly recommend reservations, and if two persons I recommend asking for a table along the outer wall, which is more intimate. I can highly recommend the Cesar salad which is prepared at the table. The fillet and ribeye were both prepared well. The cost is similar to high end steakhouses in LA, Vegas, etc...

Being in Waikiki USA, a country known for its steaks you have to try a steakhouse, recommended on Tripadvisor and being able to book online made it easy ( but I got the date wrong, however Hy's made allowances as I was flying out next day and with a short wait accommodated us). This establishment has it all, dark wooden... More

This is a good local Steakhouse. If you want to experience a steakhouse in Hawaii, this is a local version of other upscale, dark wooded, prime steak houses. The plus is that it is in the heart of Waikiki and easy to walk to from just about any hotel. A huge plus is the free valet parking! They take reservations... More

Hy's Steak House is a very up-scale steak house on par with any number of steak houses on the US East Coast. When I think of Hawaii, Polynesia or any other tropical fare jumps to mind before "Steak House". Hy's happened to be the client's preferred location to dine this evening. As expected everyone in our group ordered steaks -... More

We gave up waiting - but it was our fault as we were not aware we should have booked in advance....We will know next time. Hy's was strongly recommended to us! But we did not "get in the door"...

Some really good steaks, atmosphere , Cream brûlée , music. The smell of the grill in the middle of the main dining room adds to the experience . The are one place that cooks your steak the way you order it. I like that :)
