We attended a private birthday party upstairs which included a bar area and large room to hold 24 people comfortably for dinner. Service was impeccable, particularly Karen who manned our side of the room. I asked for an alteration to my entree with was accommodated, and then some! I highly recommend holding a special night here. It was most enjoyable.... More

I have not been to the original Hy's for over 3 decades and had forgotten what a lovely restaurant it is. We were in one of the smaller rooms , probably because we had a young baby with us (who never cried). The service was amazing, the waiters were so attentive. This restaurant is famous for its steaks.... 3 of... More

I'm a longtime resident of Vancouver and regular restaurant goer .My wife and I felt like a quiet restaurant where we could enjoy a quality steak. We have known of the restaurant for years but this was our first visit . We ordered a gorgonzola fillet and their Hys wild mushroom fillet - both medium. We ordered salads to come... More

When you go to a nice steak house, you expect it to deliver excellent service and an amazing piece of beef. This one definitely met those expectations. I was with a fairly large group of people and we were served in the cellar room. They had one server overseeing us, and he made sure everything was choreographed perfectly. Our wine... More

The service, from the moment we entered the building, was top notch. The food was utterly delectable and Tim, our server, was both attentive, polite and knowledgeable. He didn't make us feel as though we needed to rush our meal, even though there was only one other party in the restaurant after we left. Karen, the hostess, was welcoming and... More

We attended Hy's for dinner a couple of weeks ago. We hadn't been to Hy's for many years and believe me, the food was as excellent as it used to be many years ago. There were four of us for dinner and we had between us, eight ounce steaks, 12 ounce steak and a New York Steak. We had Caesar... More

Went to Hy's for my birthday dinner with my pal J. she ordered the Steak Neptune with asparagus. It was cooked slightly under medium rare,which J ordered to be medium well. We returned the dish,and our waiter Giles quickly corrected the mistake. I ordered the 16oz Bone-In Rib steak with baked potato. Nothing to rave about,but it was well seasoned... More

To begin, John our waiter was fantastic. Just the right amount of personal attention without being overbearing. It was our 10th anniversary and I had researched many higher end restaurants in the city and my wife and i were so glad with our choice. The cheese toast is as amazing as all the other reviews claim. Caesar salad made tableside... More

Hy's is a traditional, wood-panelled steak house. It has a "club" feel. The steak is unparalleled. It is not inexpensive, but is in line with any other steak house, most of which do not come to the same standard. The tableside caesar salad is a ritual. We found it a shade garlicky, but some would love it. The cheese bread... More

The Beef Wellington and filet mignon with asiago cheese was a culinary delight!!! This was my 1st visit to Hy's but most definitely not my last. Friendly service and a cosy dining room as well as fantastic food helped make for an excellent night out. The desserts were outstanding!! Don't miss out on the pistachio crème brulee, bananas Foster and... More
