It has been a long time since we had the pleasure of dining in this wonderful restaurant. We were pleased to find that the old place hasn't really changed with the years. Contrary to many new, upscale restaurants, that is good. Deep carpeting, dark wood, white table cloths and a staff of old line professional waiters set the tone. Although their selection of delicious steaks is featured, there are a good number of other items to choose from on the menu The peppercorn sauced steak was done to perfection, tender and absolutely delicious. Hy's special steak was also thoroughly enjoyed. Cool crisp salad, decadent deserts accompanied by some very nice wine made for an absolutely perfect dining experience for the two of us.

I always enjoy going to Hy's as the steaks are always delicious. Just be warned some of the guests are out right thieves. On one occasion I must have dropped by Visa card and someone picked it up and went on a shopping spee on my tab. Last place i used the card was Hy's before visa called me. Stores visited included a hardware store in the Dunbar area and a clothing store on west 4th. Good news is he was caught as his license plate number was noted on the shipping receipt when he was renovating his place on my tab. Just the other day I walked in with a very nice umbrella and when I went to leave it was gone. I realized all of Vancouver's stock promoters hang out there but just keep your wallet in your front pocket and keep one hand on it at all times. Don't worry staff are good people.....it's only the guests you need to worry about.

4 of us had dinner at Hy's recently and were disappointed. We hadn't eaten at a Hy's for years and were looking forward to a fabulous meal. However it was only mediocre although it cost $600 (which included two bottles of wine). The famous cheese bread tastes exactly like it would taste if you melted cheese on bread in your own oven. The steak was OK but nothing to write home about. And I couldn't resist the $10 creamed corn--I was sure it would be something special. But it tasted like creamed corn right out of a can.

The service on the other hand was excellent although why the waiters have to look like lab technicians in their white jackets is somewhat mystifying.

Went for dinner on a Thursday evening. Very busy and obviously a popular spot. Close to all major hotels (Four Seasons, Farimont). Service was friendly but have had better steaks.

The staff was very attentive and was you typical high end steakhouse. Steaks were cooked to perfection and our deserts were also very good. Would eat there again is my business associates wanted steak.
