We work downtown and have very little time to enjoy a meal out but we have visited Hy's twice in the past year and LOVED it both times! My husband and I enjoyed our first anniversary at Hy's and brought my parents for their anniversary a few days ago. The steak is cooked exactly to your liking and the table side caesar salad service is a must! If you have room for dessert (if you haven't filled up on the garlic bread), you must try their apple crumble and key lime pie! We seriously can't wait to go back!
Oh and Steve is an awesome server!

Excellent food, service and value.

We started with escargot which was excellent.

For main dishes we had lamb and a steak.
Both were superbly prepared.

Service was excellent and the ambiance very
beautiful.

Great experience in the heart of Toronto

Almost the best steak in Toronto, their New York Strip is excellent and a little bit cheaper than Ruth Chris's. Sevice at Hys is unsurpassed by any restaurant in Toronto. Amosphere is outstanding and the menus is extensive.

Took 3 of my friends for a birthday on July 29, 2013. The restaurant it self is really nice, with great service, but as a steak house, i was expecting a good steak - let's just say that KEG is even better for a fraction of the cost - all 3 of us shared the same feeling. We ordered 2 lobster and steak and one New York , with 2 bottles of wine and deserts - good wine and desert, but not steak!

Was in Toronto this past weekend with a large group (approx 20). We had reservations, and I was excited to finally try Hy's.

The decor is elegant, and more traditional. Very nice, and spotless. We were seated quickly, and the table was made up for us in a room near the back. This was great, as we were not as concerned about others dining near us, 20ppl who know eachother can get noisy at times.

Service was mediocre. After taking half the table's drink orders, a guest asked for a wine list. A wine list was provided, and bottles ordered, but those of us not drinking wine had to flag down the waiter to place our drink orders. Strange. Although the food came out as ordered, the waiter seemed to be going through the paces, and was not friendly to the group, almost annoyed. Some felt it may have been the younger age of our party (25-35)

Food: Excellent! Everyone's food was perfect. We had a wide range of people who are keen on fine dining, and some who don't do it often, and all of us enjoyed our meals. Everything from strips, and fillets to Chicken and Lobster, all perfect.

When the server brought 20meals on a single bill, we were a little puzzled, and we had to request separate bills. This seemed like we were really putting out the staff, and they did not want to do it. With today's POS systems, even the smallest of places have no problem with this.

Overall: Great Food, great decor, and mediocre service. Would go back, just not with a large group perhaps.
