Description: 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.

We eat a lot of steak and since we hadn't been to Vancouver in a while, thought we would indulge. Originally we were going to go to another steak restaurant we like but after reading the lastest review on Tripadvisor, decide to give Hy's another try. First, let me say that the service was great and none of what followed... More

No doubt about it, the steaks (and onion rings, and wedge salad...) are fabulous here! The service is courteous and leisurely. Fun to see the open view to the grill.

We visited recently as a family of five for a farewell meal with family before returning home. From arrival to leaving the service, food and wine was excellent. The only let down was a Fillet Mignon that had a significant amount of fat at one end. To be fair to the restaurant they didn't charge for the fillet but it... More

Hy's is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. Thats easy when you love steak, but it's one of the best steak restaurants in Vancouver if not the best. We were celebrating a birthday and the level of service (from Blair) was extraordinary to say the least. Ask for him when you make a reservation, you won't be disappointed. The... More

My family & I have been enjoying the delicacies of Hy's for generations. My grandfather spent his birthdays there, my father spends his birthday's there, and in turn, I spend my birthday's with Hy's! We celebrated my sister's 33rd birthday there on a warm Wednesday evening. We had a beautiful table right in the center of the restaurant; As always,... More

I've heard of a few must-try steakhouses in Vancouver, however, I feel Hy's isn't as promoted as others. I kind of like that. Its a small entrance to the restaurant. A little tucked away in the downtown core. Classy is the best word I can describe. Perfect ambience and atmosphere. Wicked quality of food. Service is remarkable! Waiters are very... More

We just had a gastronomic dinner at Hy's restaurant upon the invitation of an American friend. What a wonderful way to cap the street celebrations and parade in nearby streets. It's Canada Day, the spirit of independence lives on ( July 1) The ambience of the restaurant was of vintage years of fine dining. Dim lights, white uniformed waiters, saucers... More

Have been to Hy's numerous times. It is elegant, and one should dress up to go. The waiter's are well dressed and very polite. Crisp linen table clothes, linen napkins, and an elegant atmosphere. A nice menu to choose from and for those that are not beef eaters there are other items to choose from. Food is al a carte,... More

This place has really gone downhill. I don't mind spending a premium for good steak, but for what they charged and what I got.....very disappointing. I ordered my usual favourite steak known as "The Only". When it arrived, It was maybe 1" thick at best. The "Twice Baked Potato" was over cooked and very dry. Years ago, the steaks were... More

I had dinnner twice at the Hy's Steakhouse in Whistler Blackcomb earlier on my trip. I enjoyed those dinners so much that I had dinner at the Hy's in Vancouver on the last night of my trip. Excellent steaks and seafood, generous portions for side dishes and excellent service. Don't overlook the Cheesy Garlic Bread as an appetizer! I look... More
