My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. The waiters were very attentive as there were nearly 6 people that helped us throughout the service. We ordered crab cakes as an appetizer. The crab cakes were very good but would suggest they are better without the sauce they use in the dish. We ordered the steak and crab... More

I enjoyed dinner with a nephew living in Honolulu on a recent business trip to the city. My nephew picked Hy's for dinner; it was a two-block walk from my hotel on Kuhio Avenue. Hy's is high-end dining. The restaurant is off the street, under a parking garage of a building -- spacious, dark wood paneling, fine tables, excellent bar.... More

Dear Hiistory-Buff, We appreciate you taking the time to review Hy's. I am curious about the steak you mentioned as a 14 ounce Porterhouse because our Porterhouse is 34 ounces, we do have a Delmonico Steak (bone-out ribeye) that is 14 ounces. But either way, I'm happy to know you enjoyed yourselves. Please come again! Bob P More

Tucked away several blocks back from Waikiki's main strip, and located within a 'non-descript' building, Hy's Steakhouse is a hidden gem and a genuine surprise. I booked a table for five on our last night in Hawaii. It also happened to be my wife's birthday. A Florida couple we met at the pool of our hotel recommended Hy's to us.... More

We booked Hy's and had a lovely evening. For an almost $300 bill for two people, we expected just a bit more. The NY Strips steaks we ordered were good, but not excellent (Ruth's Chris is actually better). The service was excellent but there were a few bumps (such as wine that isn't delivered in almost forever) that went unexplained.... More

I'm totally satisfied spending my last night in Hawaii at this restaurant. They take wine and steaks seriously here! On the pricy side but completely worth it!

My husband took me out for dinner at Hy's last night. We had an 8:00 reservation but we had to wait until 8:15 to be seated because the restaurant was so busy. Something to keep in mind if you are going there - you might still have to wait even if you have a reservation. I also requested a booth... More

Very very very good food and nice atmosphere. The proportion is pretty big so we usually get some appetizers and number of people - 1 or 2 mains and share everything. Spinach salad, seafood platter, oysters are recommended. I usually get fillet mignon 70 ounces (probably the smallest steak they offer in the house). You can order with potato (mashed,... More

We went to Hy's the last night in Honolulu. It is a very upscale place--linen table clothes, dress code (no flip flops, collared shirts required but not jackets), dark wood walls, nice spacing of tables. Portions are generous but not excessive. I had the 9 oz Delmonico (rib eye) which was cooked perfectly...which it should be for $47. The wine... More
