Good but expensive!

Our party of 6 arrived slightly early and our table wasn't ready so they ushered us into the bar area. We had already had cocktails and were planning to order wine with dinner. They didn't like that we weren't ordering drinks and were taking up space in the bar but we still sat there 20 - 30... read more

Hy's Steakhouse is my favorite restaurant in Hawaii! For appetizer & salad, I'll get the Escargot and Caesar salad, and for my main entree, I'll order either the Delmonico(ribeye) or the Fresh Catch(fresh fish done chinese style). I love the atmosphere of this restaurant and the service is excellent as well. I've never been disappointed!

Had the opportunity to dine at Hy's during a two-day layover on the way back from Asia back home on the east coast in the US. After spending two weeks+ in Japan/South Korea my office mate and I were craving and ready for some real steaks and Hy's was the place we decided on! I had the 11 oz filet... More

This is with out question one of the best steak establishment I have eaten in anywhere in the world. The Quality of the meat is absolutely exceptional. The cooking is perfect and there is a great selection of things. The service is quite simply impeccable. It is presided over by one of the best restaurant Directors (Bob). The word awesome... More

Based on reviews we wanted to try Hy's out. We went with a friend of ours and had an excellent experience. The waiter helped select a great bottle of wine for the table, there were about 4 different wait staff tending to our every need and although they were always there, we didn't feel they were overly on top of...

We ate at Hy's towards the end of our Hawaiian vacation. All four of us agree that it was the best steak dinner we've ever had. Our night started out with delicious cocktails in the bar. They were small, but powerful! And then it was on to our table where we demolished a serving of garlic cheesebread and immediately ordered... More

Waikiki has steakhouses a plenty...but Hys has longevity on its side- it's been around and keeps its loyal clientele. It's back street location means that you have to know it is there..but it offers classic steakhouse fare in a smart, clubby setting...but with touches of theatricality - the open grill behind glass is a showstopper! Expect excellent salads, sublime steaks... More

Dined here for our last night in Honolulu. Place is impressive but a bit relaxed. Husband had lamb which was good. I had Alaskan crab legs. Our friends in ordered steak and lobsters. Overall a good dining experience. Could've rated it higher if not for the slow service. Our meals came an hour later. If you want to try Hy's,... More
