This is one of those " if you have to ask, you can't afford it " moments. I am not a executive, rock star or big time lawyer but once in awhile I like to eat like one. So spending more than most people do on their truck payment for the month, I enjoyed a meal that I most likely... More

This is a long-time Vancouver steak spot with beautiful old-time ambiance. We ate in the recently opened upstairs bar. Ryan Shimo, the bar manager, made some excellent and creative cocktails and gave us recommendations on our dinner selections. Very knowledgeable on steak cuts and whiskey. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cheese bread appetizer sounds so simple, but it is sooo... More

Nice to see the "Encore" is still busy even on a Tuesday night. What can I say. Everything fantastic, service perfect, warm rich friendly but old school (which I like). Perfect Filet Oscar with the wedge salad to start. Or you can have Caesar salad built table-side or steak Dianne. Used to go at lunch a lot in the old... More

Definitely a high end experience in a cozy atmosphere. Good wine list but affordable options. Steak must be your main there, and it was prepared very well.

So I decided to finally try out Hy's Steakhouse. I think that you can't get a better steak than the one you make at home. Or so my experience has been so far. Hy's proved me wrong, the steak was melt in your mouth tender. It's not cheap.....but it's the best steak I'v had ever. I would like to go... More

We had dinner and ordered Steak Tartare, Caesar Salad ( both prepared at table side), Lobster & Steak, and a banana dessert (also prepared at table side), and a nice bottle of wine. Fantastic!! Excellent presentation-classic-personal touch, very professional, and beautiful atmosphere. Great for date, birthdays or anniversary. It is very expensive, min. $100 per person

We've not eaten at Hy's for many years and we're excited to try Hy's again after their renovation. Overall the food was disappointing and nothing special, particularly for the price (which has increased significantly). Calamari and Jalapeños were over cooked. Steaks were ok, but not fantastic. Menu wasn't overly exciting. Service was good, but not excellent (which I'd expect for... More

We ate here one night for dinner to celebrate a business win. The service was great, the wine selection was average and the meal was good. Overall I would rate this evening a 7 out of 10 and would return here again.

Best place in town for Steak. 28 Day Old Aged Meat. Ceaser Salad is a must have!! Ceaser Salad is also made table side so you see exactly what they put in. 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

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.
