Thanks to our investor we had a great seafood / steak experience. This was the first night of our movie shoot and he generously invited us to a steak dinner. For starters we had oysters and shrimps, and for the main we had a selection of different stakes. Normally I would not recommend french fries in a restaurant but here... More

I've been to this restaurant before and enjoy the setting and atmosphere. The service was fine, people friendly and prompt (except for forgotten drink order). The basic complaint here was the food. A rib-steak that was extremely thin ($52), tough scallops, caesar salad with heavy vinegar taste (not creamy) and creamed spinach that was more creme than spinach. For a... More

Hy's restaurant is the Cathedral for the steak worshipper. The ambiance is old school steak house meets modern elegance. The wine list is extensive. The steak is devine - perfectly cooked, juicy, melt in your mouth tender. The fries are crispy, flavourful stems of golden perfection. The service is attentive without being intrusive. My only disappointment was that there was... More

The restaurant was almost empty. We felt rushed through the meal. We had just started our cocktails when the wine was poured. The wrong wine was brought to the table, but was actually pretty good. My steak was overdone. They offered to redo it but that would have left my wife finished long before me. The sides were not that... More

Went to Hy's on Adelaide Street in Toronto for lunch yesterday. The staff were very courteous and the service was highly attentive. The kitchen was a little slow but acceptable. They were able and willing to be highly accommodating but they do seem to salt everything very heavily. Even when asked for no salt (and no sauces or dressings) I... More

we went for our anniversary and Hy's did not disappoint. The service and the food were both excellent. We had the Châteaubriand for two. It was well prepared tableside and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Distinctly average. My tuna tartare starter was mimiscule and salty. The steak lacked flavour, the veg were a bit 'canteen' like. They have got the wood panelling and the white coated waiters to justify the prices but the food is no better than ok.

Hy`s steakhouse was an overall great experience, the oysters were AMAZING! The service was great, apart from the oysters, the food was good, not great. But the setting is so classy and elegant you enjoy just being there. I would go back to sit in the lounge with some oysters and drinks.

After 3 years of frequent visits to this city I finally decided to walk into this high end steak house! Beautiful setting and good service but not quite at the top end on a quiet Monday night as things were slow and they were not particularly attentive. One of our group had the Caesar made at the table which is... More

We went here on a whim for dinner on our last night in Toronto. Made reservations at 5:30 for a 8:00 table on a Friday with no problems. Upon arrival we were greeted instantly and whisked away to our table across from the fire place. The space is large with high ceilings and dimly lit. It was exactly what we... More
