Great food and wine in an old, interesting setting! We had filets, the ribeye and bananas foster for dessert. Everything was amazing! Beware the dress code....my husband wore flip flops but they had shoes for him to borrow.

I had the filet and it was amazing, tender and juicy. Try the Strawberry flambé for dessert as it is out of this world.

Party of six for dinner. Service very attentive but group style with couple minor flaws. Food very good and cherry jubilee for dessert nicely done. Caesar salad did not have anchovies and bit dull. Good oysters.

The ambiance was lovely. The service was excellent. The steak was just okay. The escargot were delicious. They have a nice wine selection. My husband enjoyed the cheese bread. Wolfgang's is definitely the only place I would go for steak when in town.

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.
