Good Steak, Service and Dress Appropriate

Need to realize this is a high-end steakhouse with a dress code, good food and prices that are on the high-end for Waikiki. The outside is not representative of the very nice inside and excellent service. Reservations are a must!

Atmosphere is relaxing, nice. Saw our waiter twice, once to take the order and next to bring the check at the end. In between, his co-staff services your table. Food arrived warm to cool, maybe wasn't picked up soon after it was done. A cool steak not as appetizing as a hot one. Otherwise uneventful, but a nicer place to... More

Just went last night. Bring a lot of $$$$ .That said the food was very good. They charge you for everything! Even extra bread. You will pay $100 per person without alcohol!

The food is so good. This is a more upscale restaurant that has a dress code. A Canadian man bought a gift certificate for his wife, but it wouldn't arrive in the mail in time for Christmas. Hy's faxed him a copy of the menu so he could have something to present to her and the man was so thrilled.

I went to Honolulu for my 30th birthday celebration from June 22-30, 2015. On June 28, 2015 my boyfriend had booked us a table and he planned to take me to HY's for my 30th birthday dinner.

Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food. Having said that, the restaurant is beautiful to look at. Every time I have a special event, I celebrate it here. The prices are more than reasonable and the food is better than anywhere else. Go here and see for yourself.

This restaurant is a classic. From their deep oak decor and very 1930's club room feel , one feels as if their are transported to some elegant and glamorous time hole where service is impeccable , Ambience sexy and beautiful, and food , divine. I don't eat meat, but their salad and seafood options are simply amazing. For those who... More

This is one of the more dressed up restaurents in the area. The waiters are all in tuxedos and there is a dress code. Steak were beautiful and the restaurent was beautiful, very old school. It is expensive however so bring enough cash! Top service!

I've gone to Hy's for special occasions over the 30 years they've been open. This time we treated my brother-in-law and wife for his birthday. It was their first time and they were amazed at the great service and superior food quality. Bro-in-law was especially impressed with the delicious steak flavor at dinner and for leftovers in a sandwich the... More
