My wife and I come back here every time we visit Honolulu. The food is incredible and the professional wait staff takes the time to make sure everything is perfect. I recommend trying to sit by the grill enclosure because watching the grill master keep track of so many amazing steaks is pretty impressive.

I was in need of a Steak fix. I normally go for the ribeye at Ruth's Chris. But since we were with another couple celebrating an anniversary, someone else chose Hy's. We had a wonderful table right in front of the one grill they have behind the glass wall. We had an excellent table. They'd set up a table for... More

Think about how many chain steak house choices there are across America. Thousands probably. The reason I really liked Hy's in Honolulu is that we walked in there with shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops. Although they looked at us like we were crazy, they seated us at a table, and respected that we had money to spend. Who wants... More

Was here with my family to celebrate dad's birthday. The staff was really nice and the food was really good, the fillet is one of the best I've tried and seafoods are also very nice. The staff was very friendly and gave us a picture as present

This is an elegant/ tourist casual restaurant located in the Park Heights Hotel on Kuhio st.in Waikiki. This is part of a Canadian chain. Fish , meats cooked over Kiawa wood hot coals on a kettle drum firepit. They comp the most delicious cheese bread as a before dinner snack.Not dietetic. The decor is like being in a private study...

Hy's was truly one of the highlights of our trip. We felt we were taken back in time to an old school steakhouse, complete with table-prepared caesar salad and bananas foster. The service and food were impeccable. I would highly recommend.

This is Hawaii's best steakhouse because of its classic Victorian library ambience and unbeatable steaks and seafood. We love Mortons and Ruth's Chris is always a sure bet but if you want the best in Hawaii you've got to come to Hy's. The service is always impeccable and reminiscent of the fine restaurants of Europe or NYC. The deserts are... More

We were recommended this fine restaurant by a friend that described it as "fine dining in an old world atmosphere with waiter in tailored outfits". She was absolutely correct. We were looked after by Paul, one of their senior waiters and an absolute credit to his art. All the other wait staff were equally professional and a pleasure to watch... More

Is this the only Waikiki restaurant where you feel you should have worn a jacket? Its very good traditional food, with top wines, all done with great ceremony. Beautifully done old style "club" décor which is deliciously over the top. Great night out. But expensive.

Went there due to good review by local food guide. Waiter recommended the rack of lamb as their specialty: unimpressed due to very bland taste ( my maid is superior! ). Red wine is served at room temp which is all wrong consider this is fine dining and evening temp in Hawaii is low 20's C....
