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.

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

We were here for the grey cup. They placed is in the bar. "We will accept Walk ins for the bar" We're not made to feel very welcome by the hostess. Service acceptable Food acceptable But silly expensive.

I had a colleague in town from Istanbul. Took him and two clients for dinner at Hy's. This place is a part of Vancouver's history and the ambience is great. A wonderful place to entertain business associates. You cannot beat the steaks which are cooked over a special wood fired grill. We all agreed that we had not had better... More

Great service as we step through the doors to the very end. Even though they quite busy we still had prompt service. We brought our teens here for dinner and they thoroughly enjoyed their dinner and mocktails! Our son loves Caesar Salad and it was great for him to see the salad made fresh in front of us. We had...

I went to Hy’s for an anniversary dinner on Saturday night. The place has an old school feel to it, and I really like the décor and layout inside. The only complaint I have is that the service was VERY slow. We sat down at 7pm, and didn’t get asked for a drink until 7:30pm. It was a busy Saturday... More

My husband and I have been going to Hy's for many years now and it NEVER disappoints. The food is always delicious. The cheese bread is a must and the spinach salad is the... More
