The food, service, ambience and location of Hy's Steak House cannot be surpassed. As a visitor to Hawaii, we didn't want to dine in one of those steakhouse chains that we have at home. Hy's is a terrific answer to the Ruth's Chris or Morton blues. The service was impeccable as a tuxedoed waiter took our drink order and promptly... More

This is where we locals go when we want to have a very special celebration. I've been going for 20 years and it never fails to impress. It's not cheap but it is absolutely heavenly. Amazing ambience. Like an old English manor house -- all wood and bookshelves and crisp linen tablecloths. They cook the steaks and seafood over an... More

A birthday celebration was in order for my fetching wife, and her mom decided to treat us to dinner at Hy's Steak house. Once we arrived her mom confessed that what she really wanted was the Lobster. Well, she wasn't disappointed. Usually she can't finish her entree but this time she cleaned the plate. A huge fresh lobster with garlic... More

I love steak and I fell in love with the Hy's franchise after my first visit in Honolulu. The server was well trained and well spoken. He provided excellent service throughout our dinner. The food was flavorful; I was surprised as how quickly our steaks came out and was worried that they were rushed but it was definitely one of... More

We went with a large group & was seated in back room. The front room with Tiffany ceiling was sad to walk past & not get seated. In the other room you can also watch your steak be cooked too. We had a nice table, good food, tender steaks and dessert too yummy to put in words. All with valet... More

I am still full from my dinner and Hy's! We found Hy's through trip advisor reviews and loved the idea of a local steakhouse rather than going to one of the usual chains. I can say that it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and steaks and drinks were phenomenal. Save room for dessert!

Easy access from Waikiki area and staff were mostly very attentive. Only problem we had was that our waiter had to cook Chateau Briand for 5 a couple of tables over and this caused him to disappear for quite a bit of dinner. We had steak and lobster, bread was good, salad was excellent, great broccoli and steak was excellent.... More

Took my family to Hy's on the recommendation of the concierge. Everyone loved there meals- mostly steak- filet, chateaubriand, etc. Excellent service. It all comes with a price- over $600 for the table. So, if money is no object and you like steak, this is the place for you.

Wasn't going to write anything but my group wants to try again...We dined on a Saturday night in November 2013. I had heard great things about the food and service. First. Apparently, everyone gets a hot towel prior to the cheesy bread. We did not. We ordered cocktails. After deciding on which steak we would have, I chose a bottle... More
