Normally, I would give this restaurant a five star rating as each year we have always had a small room on the side- away from the large dining area. However, this year, it was incredibly noisy and the food and wine much more expensive than we have previously experienced. The food itself was exceptional, the service a bit overwhelming but...

Hys is legendary for its steak, they will not disappoint you. A must try is the cheesebread, make sure you order two sides. The Ceasar salad is prepared tables idea so it can be personalized a bit, one of the best at any restaurant. This is a pricy meal, expect $300 for two. Service can be questionable at times not...

For the occasional night out in Vancouver for a wonderful experience, Hy's offers a real treat....their standards such as the cheese toast, the outstanding Caesar salad still made table side for the best experience, their selection of steaks to suit most carnivores, together with never fail service makes this into an exceptional night out. The room is dark, just as... More

Ceaser Salad- table side made, freshest ceaser salad Ive ever had,... More

Lovely staff, but the food? I really love good food and have eaten at most of the good restaurants in Vancouver. This eatery is for business people who charge meals to the company.Salesmen from out of town who recognize a brand name such as Hy's.This is for people who are really here to get drunk. If you don't like good... More

New upstairs is great. It has a New York steakhouse feel. Good crowd. Appetizers for happy hour are good. A little pricy but average for Vancouver. Cheese toast and ceasar salad is a must. Steak is good but I still enjoy Gothams a little more. Just convinced myself to change this from 4 to 5 stars.

The personalized service is exceptional. The cheese bread Hys offers is one of a kind! The Vancouver location has an elegant and historic feel. The location is very central and walking distance from all major hotels.

It was great to revisit my favorite restaurant from 1984-1994. I had eaten at the Hy's in Edmonton 100's of times over those years and loved it more then any other restaurant. I had my opportunity to relive those tastes again in Vancouver this past weekend. I took my wife who I have been telling stories to for years to... More

This is my first time here and it was for my birthday dinner. Lovely restaurant tucked away downtown. Our waiter was very good all through the night. We had the garlic cheese bread to start which was sooo tasty and then we had the lamb and scallops dishes. The lamb was good and the scallops were good but I've had... 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.
