Return visit to Hy's with friends and had the very best filet mignon we have ever had. Mike our server made our Caesar Salad at the table for all four of us as he explained each ingredient- nice touch. Wine - Bramare Malbec was fabulous and again so were the steaks and prime rib. We continually return to Hy's on... More

Art Deco lit ceiling, book lined walls, perfect subdued lighting, soft music perfect for conversation. We noticed another table with service fluent in Japanese for food and wine. There were two of us. Noting the huge portions, our wait staff reassured us 'no problem and no extra charge for sharing'. The ahi sashimi was the best quality and as generous... More

The steak size was generous, the ambiance is superb, the price a bit over the top. The biggest problem was for me, anybody can make things tasty using garlic, I think it's the most overused spice/herb there is. The shrimps that my wife had I tried after finishing my steak and had I ordered that I would have given this... More

We had a delicious and wonderful dining experience. Our server, Stu was extremely professional and helpful. We loved the classic menu and decor. Hy's is first class in service and quality without being stuffy. Stu advised us on menu selections to highlight Hy's specialty, mesquite grilled steaks. We loved the Ceaser Salad & Bananas Foster, cooked table side to enhance... More

I was seated immediately in the lounge at 8pm on a Wednesday night, but tables had been booked out until 9pm since the day before - plan this one in advance! The ambience is incredible - it is truly a classic 50's steak house, like a scene out of Mad Men. Note dress regulations: shirts, shoes etc - it is... More

This has to be the best or certianly in the top three. I made reservations 3 weeks in advance on open table. I was sent a reminder and had no problem on arrival. I don't know if open table helped but we got an excellent table. The food service and presentation were fantastic. Our server Ernie was excellent, attentive but... More

On our flight home from Hawaii, was informed that Hy's Steak House is listed as a top 100 steak house in the USA. With that said, staff are formally dressed and treated us with great respect. As per their policy we did wear closed toes shoes and I had a collared shirt. Their complimentary cheese bread was nothing special. However... More

Had dinner there with some friends a few days ago. Started with the oysters, warm spinah salad prepared at your table, then I had the filet while others had the bone in ribeye, and closed with cherries jubilee and bananas foster prepared at tableside.

If you want a staid, formal restaurant in Honolulu this is it. You would never know you're steps away from Waikiki. The menu had a good variety of steak/beef, fresh fish, and poultry. Everything was very good...just not your typical Hawaii. This may, however, be just what you want. All the food was good.

Thank Kesslane
