“Does Not Get the Bag for the Buck”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Too expensive to dine on regular days; exceptions would be on one’s anniversary or birthday. Example, the fancy salad runs something like $18 (not including taxes) per person!! Yes, they prepare the dish in front of you, but … Also, the lobster and steak will set you back around $75.00, and the size of the lobster may be smaller than a large prawn. Undeniably, the service is fantastic. Oh, do not forget the parking is about $5.00 per vehicle.

“Save room for Dessert!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Hy's was recommended by our hotel. Excellent service. The steaks were good, but nothing special. The best part of the meal was the flambé desserts! Oh my!!! They serve table side a chocolate flambé over berries and ice cream called the Chocolate Lovers. Incredible!! We also had the strawberry flambé. So good.

“Class Act”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

One of Honolulu classic steakhouses, like dining in a fineEast coast private club. Wood paneling, linens, sparkling glassware and polished table ware. Excellent and unobtursive service. Deserves more recognition than it gets.

“Great steaks, nothing special otherwise”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

I went to Hy's with a small group and had the small filet mignon with green beans and potatoe. The steak was cooked exactly as I requested and had great flavor. I think my bill for the dinner and 1 beer plus tax and tip was $60. Everything is expensive in Waikiki. Interestingly they applied a 18% gratuity to each of our checks, perhaps because we got separate checks. I would say the level of service deserved close to that. The decor was nothing special, kinda cool in the lounge area, kinda funky in the restaurant area. Finding the place can be tricky, it is about 3 blocks back from the beach front area and set way back off the street. Not sure I would go again, the price is a bit high for the overall experience, but the food was delicious.
