After a few weeks of fast food places and chain restaurants with poor quality food (quantity was mostly overwhelming and unwanted) going to Hy's steakhouse in Winnipeg was a real treat and a very good Filet Mignon 8oz steak too. Being so far from the coast I had doubts on my choice of starter and I was right, the Oysters weren't at all good and were served in an unattractive haphazard and clumsy fashion- not enough ice on the underplate and served with tiny quantities of additions including ketchup!!!! The mashed potatoe was a poor portion especially for my son and actually tasted of instant potatoe. The broccoli tasted less than fresh and was severely undercooked (virtually raw!) and when we asked for a glass of water, the glass and water were actually warm on the side of hot to the touch - perhaps the very dim lighting prevented the server from noticing this but his sense of touch would have surely told him otherwise. I wasn't happy with being sat virtually next to the noisy kitchen although these downsides were caste into shadow because I was in the excellent, wonderful company of my son, his girlfriend and her lovely mother. It was difficult to catch the eye of our server but eventually we asked another to bring some mustard. Unfortunately he couldn't understand what was being asked of him - he eventually told us there was no mustard and offered ketchup instead as if there was any similarity whatever for the purposes of enjoying a steak. We settled for horse-radish which came in tiny quantity. The steak was very good indeed but the overall price of the bill for this singular pleasure was excessive in the extreme. My aperitif of Campari and Orange was mixed together before it was brought to the table instead of the preferred, traditional and careful adding of the orange to the Campari so that the 2 different ingredients can be seen and admired for the wonderful drink it is. This needed to be served in a tall glass..... not a stubby whisky glass. Thankyou Hy's for a good steak. I shall be back for this and perhaps a salad.

Beautiful space; mediocre meal. Salads were fresh, nice flavours. Tuna tartar appetizer was awful. Steak was tough and heavily salted. Overall, this place misses the mark.

The Caesar salad doesn't taste as great as it used too. I missed the presentation show , chateaubriand need to be ordered ahead it's not in the menu anymore. I missed the old waiters bow ties. The booth with books gives me comfort and nostalgia when it was still at the old location. But, the food still delicious and acceptable for us. We were there to celebrate with friends and created new memories worth treasuring.

The restaurant itself is very romantic and the service is great ,but plan on a very expensive meal. Everything is a la carte and portions very small so don't be surprised if your still hungry after eating ,especially us men.

For the price it should have been much better. The service was slow and a bit bumbling. The steak was good but the French fries were not great. Most were less than an inch long. Sort of like they had a bunch of little potato bits they wanted to get rid of. Others at the table had proper french fries but they're not writing this review.

They were a bit skimpy on the catchup.

For the money, it should have been better.

The decor is over the top and the artwork nasty.
