With every steak house my husband and I go to, we always order the porterhouse to set the standard for that restaurant because of the two different cuts you get in the one: that tender filet mignon and the meatier New York strip. Well, our porterhouse was excellent! Of course we ate it with no steak sauce b/c that just masks the pure taste of a steak. If you have to put any kind of sauce on a steak, then that's a bad steak. Our porterhouse was excellent just as is with a bite of garlic mash here and a bite of creamed spinach there to accompany all that great flavor and somewhat cleanse our palate for the next wonderful bite of steak. As for the ambiance, we had a late night reservation, so it was fairly quiet and chill with live music still playing during most of our meal. And our servers were excellent, especially Stuart. Such an awesome, kind guy. And Chris was great to talk food with. They took great care of us. It's been a little while since I've been to Hy's, but I think we'll be back real soon. Mahalo!
We have been dining at Hy's Steak House for over 30 years for family dinners, special occasions and just because it is our favorite steak house. In all the occasions we have dined here, we have always had excellent service, superb food (from appetizers to desserts and) and a wonderful ambiance. This visit exceeded our expectations thanks to the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. We will be back soon.
It's very delicious. I want to come back. What'a fantastic night! Good for one person. Service is beautiful.

This is by far the best steakhouse I have ever eaten at anywhere! We live on the Big Island and make a point of eating at Hy's when ever we come to Oahu. It's the Kiawe smoked meat that gives their steaks the unique flavor, setting them apart from ALL other steak houses.

I ate there for my birthday
I usually eat at ruth chris for my bday and I don't like trying new places, up until 4/12 I always thought there was no better place than ruth chris . I was so happy with my steak, itwas the perfect steak Ihave ever ate. Honestly Hy's steakhouse is going to be my go to place for any occasion. This was my best bday dinner I have ever had. Food was great, my steak was cooked to perfection and service was awesome. You guys just earned a new loyal customer

.As us usual, the service is excellent and the menu selection varied and interesting. The ambiance reminds me of elegant restaurants I have patronized in Europe.
Wy's Is a rare and iconic dining experience! The Tableside service is rare in this day and age and added a special ambience to our evening. The food was prepared perfectly and the service was attentive but not overwhelming.
Once again - nearly perfect evening
Hy's is our "go to" special occasion restaurant. Once in a while we mix it up with a couple of other locations in town, but we always find ourselves comparing to Hy's - who comes out on top. Oftentimes it is something we just can't quite put our finger on - the perfect melt in your mouth kiawe broiled steaks every time, the top-notch service, the flambé desserts. Hubby's birthday dinner couldn't have been better. Leisurely evening, great entertainment, scrumptious food, and finished off by sharing the chocolate lover's dessert.

I've never had a bad meal here. Filet Mignon and Lamb perfectly cooked. Baked potato hot. Grilled asparagus perfect. Drinks excellent. Bananas Foster delicious. Always great service.

Service and ambiance were what would be expected at which end steakhouse. The food however does not compare to the Mortons and Ruth Cris' of the world.
Hy's a great once in awhile treat for me
Overall an excellent experience. The cost was very prohibitive for me so it's not somewhere I can eat at often, but I would definitely go back.
Overpriced for bland food
My wife and I were exited to try a Waikiki legend. We normally do date night at Ruth's Chris or Il Lupino but wanted to try some place new. The decor and service are top notch. The food, on the other hand, left much to be desired. We ordered: Duck Confit Salad which was lacking in flavor, under seasoned and had many small bits of bone in it (my wife sent it back). Seafood Bisque was lacking in salt and flavor. Seared Scallops were pretty good in both flavor and appearance. Tenderloin Tartare was basically a hamburger patty in shape, texture and consistency (also sent that back). Rack of Lamb was under cooked and did not have much flavor (I like it medium rare and this was raw / blue in the middle). Didn't send this back because at that point, we were hungry and tired of calling the waiter over. Although the service was very good, the waiter did not apologize once for the failings in the food. For being one of the highest rated steakhouses in Hawaii, we were very disappointed and will not be back.

Went for a special birthday for my daughter. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. They brought out a Happy Birthday piece of cheesecake for her and they took a picture, printed it out for us to keep as a momento of our visit. When I celebrated my 30th Wedding Anniversary last year, I should have gone to Hy's. The establishment we visited did not even recognize the significance of our visit. Thank you Hy's... I will return.

The food was excellent. We had prime rib and shrimp risotto, although my wife said the risotto was under seasoned, and she never adds salt to her meals. The prime rib was moist and flavorful, and the Caesar Salad was expertly prepared tableside. It was wonderful. The chocolate flambe prepared tableside was amazing and was the star of the show in our dining room. The service was excellent. If in Honolulu, don't miss the opportunity to dine at Hy's.
As always, the service was "on point" and food "absolutely delicious". We try to make it to Hy's as much as we can for special occasions and when we do, truly appreciate the continious effort in providing excellent service. Mahalo again for a great experience.
Very nice.But steak may be too big for Japanese.
I visited with my husband.We would like to eat many dishes,especialy many kind of steak. But one dish is too much for us.We didn't eat side dishes.We ate one main dish each other. We became our full only one main dish.I hope more small size for a little eater. Nice atmosphere and waiter(waitress) is so kind. It is comfortable for special dinner. I had a coupon. I recieved a cheese cake.It was good.Thank you!
Classy place. A must if you're in town. Service impeccable. Food delicious! Steak and lobster cooked perfectly.
Service was great as the waiter was funny and attentive. Food was excellent and they even took a prime rib back to cook it more after my son ordered his prime rib mistakenly too rare for his liking.
Exceptionally delicious. Great experience
From beginning to the end, the service rendered and the quality of food selected was just DELICIOUS. Thank you Hy's for making our special event memorable. L&P
At a steak house, I expect my steak to be prepared the way I like it. I ordered the special bone-in Waygu beef steak "medium rare." Unfortunately it arrived "medium." I mentioned it to the staff who looked at the steak , agreed it was a little "overdone," then left. The steak cost $96.
Service and food was excellent.

Meeting of Old Friends
Excellent meal as usual. Service is exceptional and music by Audy is great. Our party of 8 had various steaks and seafood which received universal praise.
Hy's has a dress code that requires closed toe shoes and collared shirt for men. Well, the dress code is not enforced and the table next to me had a family just from the beach with flip flops and tee shirts . They should just drop the dress code if they are not going to enforce it. Food is good quality but over priced. $7.00 for a fountain drink and then they charge another $7.00 for each refill. I will not return because of the attitude of waiter and the pettiness of a high end restaurant charging ridiculous prices for a fountain drink refill.
Dinner at Hy's is always really good, but this last visit was the best. The food was excellent, and our Waiter, Stuart, was probably one of the best we have ever had, anywhere. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and very well versed in the food and wine as well. We were entertaining some special friends that night, and our Stuart made our experience that evening truly great.

I have been going to Hy's for many years and they do not disappoint .
Love Kirby, Jonah, Audi and the gang!
The staff are very professional and classy. The menu is rich and hard to decide on what to eat, but any thing you choose will be excellent. Save some room for the bananas foster because that is definitely the ICING ON THE CAKE
Noise from one couple
We were seated first and then this couple who sat in the other corner booth was so loud in their conversation. This was through our entire dinner.

My wife and I went to Hy's on our anniversary. Everything was good with the exception of the meat. The Bone-In Ribeye $74.95 28 Ounces (794 Grams) was a big disappointment. At that price one expects a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth experience. It was nothing special. It was bland and lacked tenderness.
One of the best dining experiences I've ever had! Will definitely done here again. There was always a waiter or busboy checking on us and made us feel at home.

One of our coworkers mentioned Hy's, so it was our first time dining at Hy's. The ambiance and food is great. Audi Kimura's music was wonderful. I love the professional our server, Nic, was. Let's start off with the Foie Gras, my boyfriend and I both love it. The foie gras itself was very rich with the sauce, which was good, & it melted in my mouth! My creamy asparagus soup (soup of the day) was surprisingly pretty darn good. As well as the filet with the lobster tail & my boyfriend got the lamb chops, everything was beyond my standards. Filet melted in my mouth, lobster was unbelievably good. My boyfriends lamb chops were delicious. I was expecting a different taste than what I tasted when I ate lamb chops; everything was impeccable. Unfortunately, we didn't save enough room for dessert... But next time, we'll try. I had a great time celebrating my boyfriend and I anniversary at Hy's. Will be coming back soon!
Famous Cherry Jubilee and great Steaks
By Waikiki's Standards Hy's Steakhouse is a little unusual as it is set completely indoors and offers no scenic views on anything. The atmosphere is more like being in an elegant Boston Country Club. But the decor goes very well with the food, which is mostly classic American fine Dining, several Seafood and Meat options and great classic desserts. The quality and preparation of the Meat is outstanding and the table-side preparation of the Cherry Jubilee desert is a show in itself. If you are in the mood for a fine Steak, this is the place to go in Waikiki.

As always appetizers, salads, entrees and dessert were excellent! Waghu tomahawk steak and porterhouse were the best. Service was excellent. Spinach salad and cherries jubilee were prepared table side.
The service and staff are absolutely the best in hawaii, period. We showed up with an extra guest and were accomodated with a smile. The servers, management, and yes even the entertainer (Wendell) went all out making us feel like old friends rather than just customers. Truly a throwback to what fine dining should be. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the deserts divine. Order the flame grilled asparugus. It takes side dish to the next level! All in all a great experience.
