A word from Hy's Steak House - Toronto
Hy's Toronto has everything you could expect from a classic steakhouse in an elegant, upscale atmosphere. At the entrance, the sleek and elegant lounge lures with the promise of perfectly chilled martinis. And each unique dining area is more beautiful than the last, from the front room, centred by the famous steak grill, through the open and light-filled atrium to the intimate mezzanine with cozy fireplace and mahogany wine cabinets. Our white coated servers will guide you with professionalism and good humor, and our award winning wine list will tempt you with well chosen labels from around the world. Sink into a plush banquette, enjoy our famous cheese toast and a caesar salad, prepared in the dining room, then savor one of the classic cuts of Canadian Prime beef...and you'll remember why Hy's has been a Canadian favorite for over fifty years.

Diner Reviews
  • "Celebrated our first anniversary with a trip to Toronto and were SO glad we stumbled upon Hy's! The food was fabulous and the service was just amazing. Highly recommended and will definitely return if ever in the Toronto area again!"

  • "Unless you valet Parking will be tricky...however Hy's Steakhouse was impressive from the door/valet to the Chef coming out to say hello. The ambiance was outstanding and was equally met by the food and servers Steve/Jay. We were a table of 4 the interior is simply breathtaking so wherever you sit you are caught looking around at your surroundings. We Oysters Rockefeller and Crab cakes starters which were delicious, Lobster tail and Steak which were the best we have had in a long time. An easy place to recommend, a bit pricey but the little things they do make it worth every penny."

  • "Great service. I'm sorry I didn't leave a bigger tip!"

  • "Starting with those enormous front doors, you feel as if you are entering a giant's castle. High ceilings, airy atmophere, deep carpets and piano bar music add to the ambience. I like steak in small doses and on special occasions. The Filet with gorgonzola was melt-in-your-mouth perfect, the vegetables (usually a throw away) were perfectly crisp and fresh. The service was helpful but unobtrusive."

  • "Hy's has always been a place to go if you want a great steak. It's consistently good service is one of the reasons I go back. Hy's is on the pricier side, but the overall atmosphere, service, and food reflect that fact. I've been to the Hy's Steakhouse in Ottawa, and it has the same high standards, and rich elegance. This is definitely a place you want to go if you want to impress someone."

  • "My wife, daughter, my daughters boyfriend and I went to Hy's to celebrate the birthdays of my wife and my daughters boyfriend. We had an excellent meal and the service was superb. There was a pianist in the next room and after our meal the wait staff offered to move us so we could better enjoy her. We declined, but it was nice to know that was an option. Overall, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!"

  • "I have had the pleasure of eating at Hy's on a number of occasions and am always impressed by the quality of the food as well as the service. Though I would generally not choose a restaurant that has multiple locations the ambiance at Hy's Toronto makes me feel like I am having a exclusive experience."

  • "Nice ambiance for any occassion. Romantic outting or groups, all can be accomodated. Service was nice and fast. Before this visit i would have recommended the restaurant as I had a great experience there before. But after the birthday celebration disappointment, it is not one of my favourites."

  • "Overall good experience. Food was good, as was the service. Cheese toast was good, caesar salad was a bit strong on the garlic, steaks were done as requested and weren't too fatty, cheese cake was interesting. We found it tasted almost like lemon meringue pie. My only negative was the wine list. Not sure if the list is an ever evolving one but only 4 options for reisling and one for pinot grigio was a bit lacking in my opinion. Lots of other wines though if those two aren't your thing."

  • "Love the Valet parking that you offer? It's a great feture not to have to worry about finding the parking spot and then walking to the restaurant! Thank you, thank you! The staff was extremely friendly and eager to ensure that our dining experience was a memorable one."

  • "Chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We were first directed to to lounge by the friendly staff to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine while our table was made ready. We were then brought to our very comfortable private booth. Started our meal with a flambéed spinach salad prepared table side. We found it to be a culinary revelation. The salad was followed by a rack of lamb served in a demi glace sauce which was as good as it could be along with a fine bordeau wine.. The dessert was a delicious piece of cheesecake accompanied with a glass of sparkling wine. The timing and service of the meal was very well choreographed."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Hy's has a special fixed price dinner menu for Friday nights. It is definitely worth a try. The appetizers were a hit -- I had the scallops and my husband the lamb chop. My filet and lobster was delicious. The sea bass with prosciutto was less of a hit but all was forgotten by the outstanding key lime pie! The service was tremendous. We'll definitely be back."

  • "Average food at above average prices. Good service. Way too dark inside the restaurant."

  • "Not at all a bad steakhouse.Versatile wine list. excellent service. steak was a tad dull. without the bearnaise, there would be a paucity of flavour."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "A most enjoyable dinner, the place is stunning with its high ceilings and elegant decor, service is friendly yet polished, the steaks are the best in town, nothing added to them other than the best quality. Beats all those other places that butter or tenderize them. Menu with choices for all. Most notable is that one can have a conversation even when full."

  • "Valentine’s Day - credit card requested. 2 hour dining window annoying more than anything. Pleasant greeting, attentive waiter. 1st – Bisque a bit “thin” and salty. Scallops properly done, but needed a bit of the salt from the bisque. 2nd –Beef properly cooked; a fair portion, green beans crunchy and beets soft. Potatos cold. Trio - Lobster was less than a teaspoon, blue cheese looked like Kraft and foie gras hardly noticeable. 3rd – February strawberries were woody and what Grand Marnier? Frozen berry sorbet perhaps a better option. Wines priced reasonably. Good selection by the glass. Cheese and garlic toasts good. Overall 7 out of 10; from Hy’s – I expected more. Nix the prix-fixe and just order off the menu."

  • "I don't get to Hy's all that often but when I do it is always wonderful and consistent. The Food, Service and Ambience is and always has been outstanding. I requested a private quiet table for a nice evening with my girlfriend and the table was perfect. I would recommend Hy's anytime."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Great food and service ... although the serving staff wear really goofy kitchen worker type outfits that need an update .. The meal was about 10 times better than I expected .. superb!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "For the price, the quality of my steak was extremely poor in quality. Other local steak houses give you a much larger better steak and for less. I will never go there again for steak. The service was very good."

  • "First time in a restaurant that fancy but loved every second. The service was top notch abd food was quick and perfect."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "A great steak house with pros at every turn. Their staff are friendly, engaged and focused on giving you a memorable occasion. The steaks are juicy and cooked to spec. Superb flavour. I would encourage people to arrive early grab a drink at the bar and then go and eat. I dine out daily, and this place has never disappointed me. Strong management and leadership in the resto is apparent. People are their to make your experience memorable. Definitely a "cut-above" (no pun intended), most of the steak houses in the area."

  • "If you're looking for a great spot, that has some ambience, good food (a really great Mac & Cheese), and a reliable steak where you can talk and catch up with a friend - Hy's is perfect."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Elegant ambience, superb menu offerings, impeccable service (Steve) and incredible steaks. I had the striploin, hubby had the filet with gorgonzola and son had the surf and turf. Delectable all around."

  • "We were looking for a place close to our hotel that was quiet and had great food- Hy's scored very well on both points! It was a bit pricey but portions were generous and service was excellent. A bit dark to read the menu but bring along your phone flashlight and you'll get along swimmingly :)"

  • "Service was attentive and very helpful on a snowy night in Toronto. Because of this storm we arrived late; however, our pre-Christmas reservation was honoured without any hassle whatsoever. Our waiters were unobtrusive and the appetizers & entrée of prime rib roast was one of the best during our visit to Toronto. Upon finishing, our receptionist arranged for a cab to take us back to the hotel. Thank you Hy's, we will reserve again upon our next visit."

  • "Our less than memorable evening began with very slow drink service in a barely occupied lounge.In the dining room we were seated beside a group of rather loud businessmen. This was unnecessary given the lack of patrons. The presentation of the appetizers was less than stellar-seared tuna on a cold plate with a couple of daubs of wasabi. My steak was satisfactory but the pepper sauce was somewhat tasteless. Yesterday's twice baked potato required a knife to cut and all of the baked potato garnishes to make it edible. My wife's lamb had a coating that made the meat unrecognizable as lamb and was overcooked. She did not finish it. With friends we consumed 2 bottles of wine primarily due to the slow service. All this for $400 per couple."

  • "The service was perfect at Hy's. The wait staff were friendly and well informed about the food and wine menus. They were also accommodating to any changes that we asked to be made. I have a garlic sensitivity and the waitress made my Caesar salad with one quarter of the garlic that would normally be used. Our Filet Mignon's were cooked to medium-rare perfection and tasted delicious! Thanks for a GREAT night Hy's - and thanks for making it so easy to book our table OpenTable."
