My wife and I went to Hy's for dinner during our vacation. It was definitely the best meal we ate on Oahu, and easily the best service we received at any restaurant in Hawaii. Everything was delicious - the appetizer crab/ mushroom/ avocado?, Caesar salad prepared table side, entree, and desert (we had bananas foster, also prepared table side). Hy's... More

Wife brought me here for a birthday treat. Been 25 years since I last ate here and the experience was outstanding. Of course I went for the steak and the appetizers. Can't say enough good about the food. Service was just right.

I did not particularly appreciate my experience there. Not part of my culture may be!? The meat is good, the service too, but beside the meat and service I did not find this restaurant to be particularly exceptional. We paid a total with tip of $380 for one shared starter, 2 filets mignon 7 oz and 9 oz with side... More

Had a great group dinner here. The service was outstanding and we loved the atmosphere (old school, dark, leather, books). The food was also very good. I have had better steaks, but these were better than average. An unusual taste, maybe the way they grill them, which must be their "thing", and it may overwhelm the meat flavor just a... More

Cannot begin to describe the experience at this restaurant. It had surpassed all expectations from value, food and 5 star customer service. The ambience is exquisite coupled with excellent food and beyond exceptional customer service has made our night a very special memory. Love this place and I am certain you will not be disappointed. A six star restaurant by... More

First, the steaks are incredible. And if that wasn't enough, you have the ambiance of a fine New York City Steakhouse in Hawaii. Hy's reminds me of the classic NY Steak Houses of the 50's and 60's. Rich wood paneling, thick carpet, elegant dining and atmosphere. Yet it's in Hawaii. If you are craving a classic NY Streak experience while... More

Superb fine dining accompanied by impeccable service in a setting so beautiful it was chosen for an up-scale dining venue in one of the original Hawaii 5-O shows. Outstanding steaks and seafood. Request seating on the main (lower) floor.

I had the special that was Sea Bass -- wonderful! It was a light dish so I had room for the coconut Flambe'! Any of their Flambe's are a must!

Hy's was a wonderful dining experience. Be sure to book in advance. We got an elevated booth in the dining room so we could see most of the establishment. Our waiter was great and really wanted us to have a good time. The escargot was fabulous. We had a special cut of beef that was sized for two and carved... More
