Walked in with a party of 10 at around 7pm or so with no reservation on a Tuesday, They handled it very well and sat us almost immediately. We had a quiet little corner surrounded by wine bottles, the waiter was very good though he seemed like he was in a big hurry all the time. The restaurant wasn't busy... More

Havn't been for some 5 years since I'm seriously reducing my beef intake. Last night along with some 4 friends and colleagues we re-appeared and were NOT disappointed. Perfect Caesar salad - with a garlic/ anchovy BITE... just how I like it. For some with sensitive taste buds... maybe a little overpowering. That's where the service takes over and flavor... More

We recently went to Hy's to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. I had made the reservation online and called in to confirm everything was in place. They made a note of my comment that it was boyfriends birthday however not one person the acknowledged it on the night which was disappointing as it was a special occasion for us. Our server... More

I hosted clients here for a dinner out. We enjoyed excellent service and a view of the flaming, open grill. All in our party of seven raved about the food. Tableside caesar salad was a bit too heavy on the garlic for my taste (and I like garlic); the cheese-bread is cheesy in every sense but it tastes damn good... More

This is the Steady Eddie of steakhouses. It hasn't changed much since it opened in the 60's. Well, the steaks were not $50 then, but the decor hasn't changed. This windowless room is perfect for a rainy lunch or dinner. Food is top notch, service is excellent and the wine list more than adequate. This isn't the vibe of Black... More

Hy's has long been a favorite for my husband and I; we've also dined at Hy's in Whistler and Waikiki. We brought our daughter and her boyfriend to Hy's for the first time for her birthday and they were just as enchanted as we've always been. In the dimly-lit dining room there is a viewing window where you can see... More

Caesar salad(tableside)was excellent. Rib steaks were good, a little bit thin. Waitress was friendly and engaging.

I made reserve here for my husband's 78th birthday because we both enjoy a good steak now and then - thinking Hy's would be THEE BEST as that is what they are known for. MISTAKE. We were welcomed with a 'happy birthday' greeting to my husband and taken to our table - lovely ambiance!! Our waitress provided us with information... More

We celebrated my birthday just before Christmas, a very busy time of year at this Vancouver institution & were happy to discover nothing has changed. Still the best steaks in town served by professional servers who understand how to complement an evening for their guests without becoming "part of the family". The older members of our group had fond memories... More
