Hy's is a first class restaurant with decor, ambiance and service to match. I had the fillet mignon steak with half a lb of King Crab Legs - thought I was in heaven, absolutely perfect. First Class staff were very attentive and discreet. Many thanks to Ernie for menu advise.

Good bone in rib eye, even better prime rib, with some yummy sides of grilled asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Kind of dark inside, like a traditional steakhouse. Love the grill inside the glass cage. The service is impeccable. I would only say the $18 negroni was quite pricey. Note the dress code :)

Hys is everything I had read about and more. A high class establishment with delicious steak. Attentive staff, cool ambiance, and a true dining experience. I appreciated the dress code- it keeps the experience formal and avoids being overrun by tourists. We celebrated our anniversary with complimentary cheesecake and a keepsake photo. Expensive but well worth the money.

I have eaten at many different steakhouses around the US & Canada and Hy's Honolulu ranks very near the top. The decor is dark wood with earth tones and strikes the correct mood for the meal to follow. My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and Hy's made the event truly special. Jonathan and John were our servers... More

Our family went here (eleven strong) to celebrate the renewal of my husband and my wedding vows. This was a special occasion and it was treated as such by the staff. Everything was excellent from the appetizers to the dessert. The bill was high, even for Hawaii prices, but for something as special as this, it was worth it.

As a solo traveller you can sometimes feel ignored and overlooked in a busy restaurant, this was not the case here and they found me a small table at the side where I could observe the vibrant life of this busy restaurant. The waiter, Swerdloff was helpful and friendly. as beef wellington is one of my favourites I chose it... More

my only regret about my experience at Hy's is that we wish that we went sooner. Everything - from the waiter to the accommodations made for my children (they took a filet and cut it in half prior to cooking and paired it up with French fries so that my children didn't even realize that they were sharing - without...

There isn't anything good we could say about the place. When you are paying this amount of money you should receive a level of quality of food and service. Both were completely sub standard. The rude and condescending waiter tried to belittle us and was disrespectful toward us. I believe because as soon as he realised we were Australian he... More

Dear Lauren W, I hope you will accept my apology for the service (or lack of) you received. Complaints like yours, although painful to read, are invaluable. If you can find the time, I would very much appreciate you letting me know when your reservation was and under what name it was made. There is no room at Hy's for... More

This was the first time my wife and I had been here and we wanted to have a change of pace. First of all, we made the reservations through Opentable, which made seating extremely easy. I have heard about the Caesar salad and ordered it for us. Please bear in mind that the price on the menu is per person... More

Hy's is very clubby-very old fashioned steak house. The waiters are pleasant and helpful-never overbearing or snobby. This time, my wife and I tried the tableside Caesar Salad. It went well, and the salad was delicious. My wife always has the filet mignon, a lovely cut; and I always have the bone in ribeye, also outstanding. The potatoes are also... More
