Ate there with a group of 6. Service was good, steak was good. Thought I would be more "wowwwed" by it all. Would of liked to have seen more of the beautiful woodwork interior, but they had the lighting so low, and dim. I would not return, better value and same steak elsewhere. Jeff

Four of us met here...all retired to reminisce. The perfect spot...tables not too close...great service.....great cocktails as well as wine ....and, of course fine food. The shaved beef with dunking sauce is a classic . The ladies enjoyed their salads immensely. A terrific place for an enjoyable luncheon.

The main reason that we visited hy's is probably the Beef Wellington and indeed I liked it very much. The appetizer oyster can be improved I suppose. Also, the table here are bit small for a group of 4 in my opinion.

If you're really into steak - you want the best cuts, etc, Hy's is for you. Exceptional service, delicious wine and desserts, this is a go-to restaurant for me and my husband when we want to treat ourselves. The seafood is delicious and the steak is cooked to perfection. Go for the regular garlic bread rather than the cheese one,... More

I went to Hy's with some friends after a recent conference in TO. They were sold on the long standing hype. The salad was so-so... nothing special at all. Then there was the steak.... not bad... but, that was all. Truly mediocre - from the place that was supposed to be great - just mediocre. The part that completely turned... More

I decided to try a steakhouse for a change for a business meeting and glad I did. There is an air of sophistication and old NY charm in there that I like. Our steaks were very good and the sides were satisfying. I just never like carpeting on the floor of restaurants because they always leave a musky smell no... More

I was lucky enough to win a gift card for Hy's after having enjoyed many meals at this wonderful restaurant. On this occasion I decided to bring my family and celebrate my moms retirement. As usual the food was on point and the service was impeccable. Our waiter, Jimmy was a wonderful character that made us feel like gold. Thanks... More

I haven't been to Hy's for ages and it's not what I remembered. Things didn't start well with a dirty wine glass and missing side plate. Small things I know but this is the sort of thing you pay for in these sorts of places. Streaks were fine, mine wasn't the hottest, but it was a birthday celebration and I... More

I've been to a lot of steakhouses that ply those traditional waters that include shrimp cocktail, French onion soup, Caesar salad and prime, grade-A corn fed steaks. Typically they look the same, your waiter has been there for the better part of his life (and it's usually a him) and the outcome is the same. Solid. However when you look... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
