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

The beef tournedos and the halibut were simply outstanding. Cooked medium rare as requested. We were in a separate room which was great as we could talk and hear what our friends were saying. Service was great too!

This was our first experience at Hy's and won't be our last. It felt a bit like stepping back in time to the 1950's. An episode of Mad Men could be filmed here. The lounge and dining room are dark panelled wood and dim lighting. The menu is classic: steaks, oysters rockefeller, wedge salad, table service for steak Diane, old-school... More

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
