This Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14), treat your special someone to a romantic evening at Hy’s Steak House, where the atmosphere is intimate and the food, well, it’s love at first bite.

Since opening its doors in 1976, Hy’s has become a favorite for fine-dining steak lovers. In addition to a Top Steak House Rating of Excellent by Zagat Survey, this award-winning restaurant also has been recognized for its desserts, wines and overall excellence in ambiance and service.

“Our menu offers a variety of USDA Prime steaks cooked over our kiawe wood broiler, which is viewable by our guests as it is in the broiler dining room,” says general manager Bab Panter. “We have a great variety of seafood, great appetizer selection, a memorable Rack of Lamb, and a full eight-rib spring lamb rack from Australia, which is extremely popular. We also offer a half-rack, which we added because of popular demand. Hy’s also is known for its any tableside preparations, flambe desserts, Caesar and Warm Spinach Salad made from scratch tableside, as well as the carving of Rack of Lamb, Chateaubriand and more.”

There’s no doubt that the steaks are king at Hy’s (offered in a variety of cuts: New York Strip, Delmonico, Filet Mignon, Bone-In New York Strip, T-Bone Steak and Porterhouse T-Bone Steak — King of T-Bones), however, Lamb and Alaskan King Crab Legs are very impressive as well.

Also popular are Chilled Oysters en Half Shell ($17.95), and Oriental Style Hawaiian Fresh Catch, which is steamed and served sizzling with peanut and sesame oils, ginger and green onions, on a bed of stir-fried Oriental vegetables (market price). And Hy’s specialty Flambe desserts are just too good to pass up, such as Bananas Foster made in the famous Brennan’s tradition (for two or more, $13.25 per person).

Add an extensive Wine Spectator wine list, live music (Wednesday-Saturday and Feb. 14) by Audy Kimura, and friendly first-class service, and dinner at Hy’s is sure to be an unforgettable dining experience for any occasion.
