Hy's has been Canada's first name in steaks since opening in 1955. For nearly 60 years the Hy's name has meant the finest Canadian beef and impeccable service in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Hy's is Canada's premiere steakhouse. We are Hy's, and proud of it, since 1955.

If you want the feeling of going to a turn of the century gentleman's club, this steak house is for you. The garlic cheese toast is a must-have to start every meal. The steaks are always very good to excellent - compares favourably to some very high-end NY steakhouses I have been to.

I took my wife to Hy's for her birthday dinner and it was wonderful. The restaurant hasn't changed much over the years and is "old school" in some ways but the service and food was GREAT… Caesar Salad prepared at the table and of course you must have the Garlic Cheese Toast…Great Steak

My husband and I love Hy's and have been to their restaurants in Whistler, Toronto, Ottawa, and Winnipeg, but Vancouver is our home base which accounts for dozens of visits on Hornby Street. Like everyone else, we love the cheese bread and the Caesar salad, and have never been disappointed. However, last night was different than all our former visits.... More

We came here with a group for a birthday dinner and were sat in the wine cellar room for 16 of us. The atmosphere and service was excellent. Nice selection of somewhat pricey wines and few beers on tap. I went for the 22 oz porterhouse med/rare and the wife had the filet mignon Neptune. We shared some a la... More

Amazing restaurant with it's decour straight from the 60's. Cheesebread is a must, it's just spectacular and you wont find anything like it anywhere else! Ceasar salad is tossed right next to you by the waiter demonstrating some skills. Steaks are really good, but not exceptional. Waiter was atleast on our visit really professional and helpfull. Full 5 stars on... More

We wanted to try Hy's as they've just opened this new location. The cheese toast--couldn't figure out what the appeal was until I took that first bite. Swoon. SO good! Great steaks, too. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive.

If you are here for the perfect piece of beef, it is not here. The steaks are good but not stellar. I know you steak people and you are a fussy lot - and so am I. So why the five stars? The experience and the rest of the menu. Put on your Don Draper suit and you will be... More

Menu offered; salmon, steak sandwich, & cob salad. Came to Hys for a steak but the steak was on a slice of bread with fries, so opted for the salmon. Salmon was salty and curled on the edges, under a heat lamp too long (?) It was the only thing I ate, so it was either that or the one... More

Appetizers were delicious...the excellent caesar salad was made at the table with a flair, My steak was very tender, the vegetables were delicious, escargot were perfect, and the desert... banana flambe was yummy. John was our waiter and he was attentive, supportive and informative. I haven't been to Hy's in many years and it was excellent as always.

We have been here twice in the past year, the ambience is what brings us back. The rib steak was great and so were the King Crab legs. The French onion soup is one of the best in the city. The sauce that came with the scallops is a bit of an acquired taste however. Recommended and I look forward... More
