The restaurant looked beautiful but the Maitre de turned us away because the men were wearing sandals. They had no problem with the ladies wearing sandals ffs. We went up the road to Mac 24/7 at the Hilton. Excellent food and great service.

First time going to hy's since new ownership and food/service was good. French onion soup, shrimp cocktail, wedge salad were starters, then came NY, petite filets and lobster with cherries jubilee.

Top end restaurant that upholds to its standards. It is expensive but totally worth it. I have been here about 20 times over the 18 years and the steak is as good as the best I have ever had anywhere, ditto the sides. The ambience...More

Hy's in Waikiki is one of the last true steak houses. From the waiters formal attire, to table side Ceasar salad and flambe it truly is an experience. Also, rarely do you find a 28 oz T bone steak on the menu. Unreal.

Hotel made us reservations for dinner for our anniversary. It was a little hard to find. Servers were very attentive. When we were seated we were told Happy Anniversary! The hotel must have told them why we were there. Thought that was a great touch....More

Any kind of collared short is fine - make sure you are not wearing flip flops or tennis shoes though. Coat is not required.

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. Join us for Easter & Mother's Day Brunch.
