Another must have is the cheese bread which is to die for! No matter what we also order the cheese bread (7kinds of cheese melted). Be sure to... More

From my first visit to Hy's as a young lad this restaurant has remained a constant for me and I have tried to visit all their locations. Hy's on Hornby remains my favorite, there is no need for me to tell you about their food or stiff drinks in all their locations, over 200 people have done that, what you... More

Hys provides much of what you can expect from a high-end restaurant: Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. My friends love their steaks. I don’t eat meat so I ordered the Prawn & Scallops with rice and green beans. It was pretty delicious. I was pleasantly surprised at the portion sizes; I thought it was going to be one... More

I can not say enough about the quality and service of this steakhouse. It is by far one of the best in the country. Every detail is top notch. If you dont mind spending extra to treat yourself from time to time you can not go wrong.

We had a great dinner for our last night in Vencouver . The place, very nice and cozy, is not exactly a summer place , but you forget everything while they're preparing the delicious Ceasar's salade beside your table. The best ever. Canadian beef bone in rib was perfect for quality and grill technique. A special bonus for the cheese... More

This was a classy place formerly. Service very slow. Caesar salad had way too much dressing. Servers were young and not organized. Asked them to turn off the loud old rock music. For $300 for two, you can do much better.

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.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
