Always can count on an excellent meal at Hy's. The steaks are cooked nicely, and the cut is generous. Spinach salad is made at the table, so it's very fresh. Price is reasonable for this level of food as well. Service is not as good as previous visits, though. Our server seem kinda aloof, and while there really is nothing... More

Great spot to have drinks as well dinner. Ambience with service is a good sign of fine dinning Resturant. They have huge selection of wine as well cocktails to choose as well scotch. Over all really enjoyed the old school steak houses and has a very colonial look and feel.

The barons of Toronto industry dine at hy's. Bar is superb. Price and service and food and wine are all above the industry standard. Puts Harbour sixty to shame. Too bad about the construction. Really destroys some of the ambiance. Ps. Some of the booth seats need to be fixed. Some of those barons must be packing on a little... More

Very warm cozy and fantastic service. Love the valet parking. I didn't have steak this visit, as they were offering Chilean sea bass and it was great! But the steak is amazing . A def visit if not just for a special occasion to do a Toronto restaurant .

I had a plane to catch and only has a few minutes but the Chef was kind enough to take an order for me whilst the rest of table ate their appetizers. I usually like rib eye but given the time the chef suggested a medium rare strip loin. It was delicious , very soft and moist and full of... More

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
