We dined here for our Christmas Day dinner and the staff was wonderful even though most of them had already put in a full days work covering the lunch buffet crowd. The onion soup gratinee is excellent. They cube some of their cheese bread and...More

All the first impressions are great. The welcoming staff are very friendly. The restaurant is beautiful. The menu is varied but not overwhelming. The let down was the taste and cookery of the main dishes. It was beautifully presented, however the chicken was dry and...More

I looked absolutely stunning and the hostess went out of her way to try to degrade my fashion and blamed everything on the dress code without stating the obvious. The underlying message is that one thing that is taboo. The one that we don't talk...More

Not a good choice for a large party. I suggest you find a different venue for the wedding party and then enjoy the quite ambiance of Hy's the next night with a few close friends. Best of both worlds.

Join us for select Holiday brunch buffets, celebrate your family holiday traditions at Honolulu's most iconic restaurants. Hy's Steak House, one of the best-known steakhouses in Hawaii, has been a tradition in Waikiki for 40 years and continues to be a favorite with visitors and locals alike. Tuxedoed waiters expertly prepare Caesar Salad, carve Chateaubriand for two and flambè delicious desserts (like Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee ) tableside. The real specialties of this steak house, of course, are the USDA Prime grade cuts of beef - New York Strip, Porterhouse T-Bone, Delmonico and Filet Mignon - which are dry-aged and trimmed on the premises. The kiawe wood sears the steaks with an intense heat, while complementing the flavor of the fine beef perfectly. Enjoy a cognac or glass of Port from Hy's full bar in the intimacy of the library lounge, while enjoying the acoustic musical offerings of Audy Kimura, Vernon Sakata or Chris Hopper.
