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

One thing I hate is a restaurant that knows it's good and Hy's made sure that we knew it understood what customers want, good service. My water glass was never empty, questions were answered without pretense and the atmosphere was like a movie set. The food? It was good. The steak was fantastic. Perfectly cooked medium rare which is impossible... More

My husband and I came here for the first time a couple years ago, and it was immediately our favourite restaurant. Amazing service, amazing food, amazing atmosphere. We decided to get married at Hy's in July and I am happy to report that my guests all loved it as much as we did, and the vintage feel and beautiful decor... More

Hy’s is located in an elegant lounge and furnished in a classical style with beautiful chandeliers. This restaurant is one of the best steakhouse I've ate in recently. Food delicious and the meat was superlative. Good choice of wines and also delicious desserts. Hy's is really a mix of charming, great food and old history style

Hy's is a top of the line chain of steak houses and the location in Toronto is great. My wife loved their new "Beef Wellington" addition to the menu and I enjoyed a grass-fed NY strip. The meat as delicious, the side of mushrooms was terrific and large enough for 4 people to share. The menu did not have sauteed... More

I thought my Chateaubriand was over seasoned although my friend didn't think so. I just don't fancy biting into salty bits and getting that twang in my mouth from it. It was a lovely restaurant, and like the rest of Toronto the service was impeccable and the live music in the bar was really nice. Good range of wine selection... More

A little more expensive than the keg, but well worth the extra money. The staff tend to be older, which means they've been around a long time and are good... although I think a few started retiring, lol. I often suggest this place over the keg next door because it's quieter and more formal. Also, try their mac and cheese!

Okay clearly living off past reputation. The service is average at best, and the attitude is stuffy. They have decent menu choices but the food quality is average. A bit pricey so why go there? Up to you, not sure I would go back.
