Old School menu and service that don't disappoint

Had dinner here just a few days before Christmas and, despite the busy time, the service and the food were very good. The classic Caesar Salad made at the table and the prawn cocktail are from the 70's. My beef wellington was perfectly cooked as were all the steaks. The Bananas Foster flamed at the... read more

10 of us from my family went to Hy's to celebrate several "important" birthdays. I haven't visited Hy's for 10 years and it will likely be another 10 if ever that I return. 6 of the group ordered the Caesar salad and a filet, and the rest of us did vegetarian or in my case the duck confit. The steak... More

Enjoy a classic cocktail in a stylish environment; between 2 and 5 with 50% off, and a great deal! Don't expect mojito's or Sex on the Beach, but let your taste buds be surprised by maple infused rye and pecan whisky.

I did something I've never done before. Sent a steak back to the kitchen. The bone-in steak was like rubber. Worse than the eat 72 ounces in an hour in Amarillo TX. The replacement filet was decent but not top quality. My partner's lobster was tasteless unlike Rodney's here in town. The cream corn was good; the cream spinach ok... More

Dinner meeting with several professionals January 23, 2016. One crab cake appetizer small for $19 bland and nothing special. I have had many great steaks from texas to california, Morton's, Don Shula's etc. and was looking for a great steak at Hy's. i could not have been more disappointed. Had the 8oz tenderloin oscar. steak was definitely NOT 8 oz,... More

Valet parking still great and reasonable and we were asked if we wanted to go upstairs to the newly renovated area so we did. It was beautiful but I regretted it because I missed the oldness and familiarity of the downstairs. Also I miss the waiters being in tuxedos. Caesar salad still great, steak just okay but the cheese bread... More

Hy's is centrally located in Vancouver and one you won't want to miss. This is fine dining in a historical building with the original open fire grill still in operation. Order the steak, what else. you will be very pleased with the food and more pleased with the service.

The meal: i don't understand the cheese toast. Why do the servers push for people to order cheese toast? It's thick soft white bread with cheese. I could make that at home... Scallops appie was delicious - scallops were tender and flavorful. I realize this place is fancy, but three scallops for $20 is something I wouldn't repeat even if... More

Three couples went to Hy's on Hornby Street in Vancouver last Sunday - not an empty seat in the house - we had a very professional waiter John who was on top of his game throughout the entire meal. Some of us had fish and seafood entrees and were very pleased with our choice. Those that had the steaks were... More

Okay so this is a more upscale restaurant and it's also in the middle of downtown. The food is good, now when I say that, I've had better steaks on my BBQ at home it's fairly regular steaks, nothing extrodinary, not worth paying $50+ dollars a steak (not including sides). You will be paying for the name here if you... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
