Excellent dinner, a classical decor as a steakhouse should have with a twist as the steaks are done right in front of you (at least if you have the central table). Started off with some hawain sparkling rose, interesting even if a bit too sweet for me. I then had the tuna sashimi which was as good as it can... More

Awful experience they told us for their dress code stands for only jeans and shoes no slippers and when we arrived at the restaurant my husband was wearing jeans and shoes and a very nice t shirt with no collar so they told us to give him a collar t shirt to wear on top or we couldn't go in...

They did it right . . . actually everything right. Valet friendly, welcoming hosts, skilled waitstaff, delicious food (the Kiawi flavor in the steak was fabulous) and the old school "club" decor without pretentiousness. I'm glad we went . . . I was prepared for something dated, but they managed to make everything seem current. Great job, 5 Stars from... More

Well, I had not been to Hy's in over 30 years. Mainly because I hate going to Waikiki, but that's another story. The occasion was my mother-in-law's birthday. We had a party of six. Service was very good, except for the fact that when I went to the restroom they removed my place setting. Lucky for me my 12 year... More

My wife and I celebrated our 26th anniversary dinner there... somewhat disappointing experience. It all started with the cocktail she ordered ... Pina Colada. When it arrived, it tasted diluted .. can't really taste the pineapple, nor the rum. She sent it back and exchanged it for a martini, which was fine. Next came the meal ... my wife ordered... More

My wife and I have been to Hy's steak houses in Canada, most recently in Vancouver a few years ago. We were able to compare the experience with Hy's in Waikiki and confirm that their high standards and culture are intact in the tropics, albeit with a few additional offerings that take advantage of location. We had the Ceasar Salad... More

We made a reservation for our family of six a month in advance, prior to boarding the Norwegian Cruise around the Hawaiian islands. We requested a nice table and upon arrival, we were seated right in the middle of the restaurant next to a bus station. It was very hard to hear our conversation with all the clanking of glassware...

Valet parking signage cannot be seen from the street resulting in two trips around the block in heavy traffic. Seated promptly but felt rushed to place drink orders. Wait staff was courteous but assertive. Decor was rich with an bygone era feel. The real problem was with 3 of the 4 the steaks being undercooked. The quality and portion size... More

My family (there were six of us) had a wonderful dinner here. The setting looks like an old historic library, and the service was exceptionally good. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and I would highly recommend this as a place for a "special" dinner.

We had a great time here and a very memorable experience. Highlights were the amazing steaks we all had cooked to perfection. The tomahawk steak was a great share steak for two and also made for a great photo! The service was top class and the decor was something different for a change. It was pricey but it was worth...
