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.

Not quite as good as last time ..

I reviewed Hy's in September 2012 and was very impressed. This time less so - a Friday 8.30pm booking for four. I still love the 'feel' of the place and can live with the noise level. The staff were still good but there were glitches. The table was laid for three, when - eventually - this was... read more

Dark and moody inside, a warm and comfortable interior. We sat at a great table, and our waiter was so charming and helpful. I had a fantastic steak, really enjoyed it. Had berry cheesecake for dessert which is my fave. All around happy experience at this restaurant, there 3 times now.

I visited Hy's Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar for the first time on father's day with my family to hopefully enjoy an excellent meal served by a respectful staff, and my table got just that. Immediately upon entering we were greeted by the staff with a warm welcome, and were guided to our conveniently placed table in the dining room. The... More

I've dined at Hy's for many years when traveling to Vancouver and have never been disappointed. It has that old "club" type feel and the service is exceptional. I have the NY Strip which was cooked perfectly and extremely tender and juicy. The wine list had a number of excellent BC wines. Hy's is not inexpensive but is worth the... More

Walking in, it felt like a place for 'the boys': dark, heavy, solid. A little intimidating for a lady. The cheesebread, that I'd heard a lot about, was phenomenal. Not something I would normally eat since I am always quite careful with my calories, but this was worth the extra calories. I was intimidated (theme for the day?) by the... More

Love this place!!!! We have been going here for years. However, we haven’t been in a while and I heard the prices have increased. Still worth it if you want a really nice night out. The cheese bread is to die for (I am not joking). The salad is made to order at the table and steaks are cooked to... More

Fond memories of being a regular at Hy's in Ottawa and its top-notch steaks had me confidently looking forward to dinner at Hy's in Vancouver. It is clearly a money-making machine - the restaurant was full and buzzing. However, the experience was less than impressive. Our steak orders were mixed up in terms of doneness but the error was addressed... More

For a restaurant to be in business for over 50 years+ tell a lot. Situated in a quiet section of downtown with minimal fan fare or glory like new business thinks they need. Atmosphere is bar none simple and elegant with a flare of masculinity. I choose to dine alone, was greeted immediately by one of the best servers in... More

Recently got some gift cards from my company to Hy's steakhouse. So I decided to take my wife for date night. The place is a bit run down and tight. The furnishings need updating and place needs more light. We ordered steaks which are pricey $40+ and not much better than The Keg, sides are tiny portions.The cheese toast was... More
