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
  • "Had a gentleman's dinner with a good friend who's getting married soon. Wanted a place where a great steak was avail, and also a quiet setting. Hy's did a perfect job - food, drinks, service. Everything was well timed and arrived perfect to the table. Our 2nd martini was better than the first, wine presentation was good, and food was perfect. Definitely recommend Hy's for a quiet, proper dinner."

  • "Hys classic atmosphere and old - timey, super accommodating service makes them my favourite restaurants (I have been to the Ottawa location as well as Toronto). Bit more expensive than the Keg but experience is EVERYTHING the keg is not. When I want to celebrate something over a nice dinner, my pick is Hy's because you just don't get genuine, professional service, amazing food and a stunning setting like this anywhere else I've ever been. It's like something from a movie. Take me with you when you go!! :)"

  • "I travel to different city every year with a group of friends to see a MLB game, drink and eat well. We find a great steak place each visit and thought we found a good one with Hy's. 3 out of 4 of our steaks were not up to par. I got the Bone-in "Rib Steak", Canada's (or Hy's) version of a Bone-in Ribeye. The steak was very thin (little less than a 1/2") and surprisingly under cooked. I should have asked about the approximate thickness of the steak before ordering, maybe that was my fault. The service was great, except for the "water glass fillers" constantly refilling our water glasses every time we took one sip (really annoying). One suggestion, order the caesar salad if you get salad, it was awesome, about the best I've ever had."

  • "had the beef tacos for lunch with pickeld beet and cabbage - hot sauce - amazing !!! super tender beef and great flavours.... caesar salad needed a tad more dressing"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Ambience is very nice. But food is not outstanding for the price. I liked the way they prepare the salads in front of the table. Presentation was nice and service was very good. But they did not have the steak that my friend ordered, and should have gave a complimentary or discounted price for the inconvenience, as they did not advise us until after taking our order. I enjoyed Morton's steak better."

  • "I enjoyed every minute from the second I walked in, to the second I left. They treat you with such respect. Very friendly staff. Best margarita I have ever tasted. The food was incredible! Extremely pricey, but also completely worth it. Great for special occasions, or to bring clients!"

  • "We enjoyed our experience at Hys. From the valet parking at a very reasonable rate to the "made in front of you" ceasar salad. Service was very good with a very knowlegable server (Angel). I highly recommedn Hys as a great dining experience."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "They have the right idea and it looks like a classic American steakhouse: dark wood, globe lighting, wall stacked with wine bottles. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was disappointing. I was really looking forward to classic Oysters Rockefeller. The Pernod-flavored Hollandaise sauce was odd tasting and detracted from the oysters' flavor. The filet mignon was shot through with gristle. The creamed spinach was not bad. The cheesecake was just … well, sad. People who are enthusiastic about this place just don't know any better."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Nice place but nothing out of the ordinary. Striploin was softer than filet mignon And 20$ cheaper. So not pleased with the quality of the food. But service was amazing"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Hy's is famous of steak. We were so disappointed by its quality. We ordered filet mignon and "the only" NY ATRIP. It's just very average. Not worthwhile at the price they charge. It's a quiet place for business lunch, that's it. Won't go back. "

  • "We were given gift cards by my son & fiance for Christmas but waited for a special occasion to go. We decided our anniversary would be a good time. We are not used to going to such fancy restaurants, and were a bit nervous about it, but were pleasantly surprised. We were treated so wonderfully and the food was extremely good. From the time we got to the door we were treated wonderfully. Everyone was so friendly. Our waiter was extremely pleasant. All in all a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Extensive wine list, though a bit overpriced. Our server, Chad, was friendly and very helpful. We went on a Saturday night, so it was quiet and intimate. Steaks were cooked to perfection. The Caesar salad is made at the table, and is excellent. Crème brule is not bad."

  • "I always enjoy lunching and dining at Hy's. The lunch menu is a good mix of tried and true Hy's and more modern and some very healthy plates. And reasonably priced. Worth the walk through the construction around it."

  • "We had not been to Hy's for many years and had forgotten what a wonderful atmosphere the restaurant has. We had a drink in the bar before dinner enjoying the piano player and singer. Everything about our meal was fantastic. Our server was excellent and she was very helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed tableside Caesar salad which was wonderful and a nice touch not seen very often anymore. Our steaks were cooked to perfection both rare and my Dad's medium. Can't wait to return."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This time the steaks, filet a la hys were awful. Chewy pieces of fat embedded within the meat; too much mushroom sauce covering the steaks. Service was outstanding. Everything else we ordered was outstanding."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The steak salad was soggy and unappetizing. The interior appeared tired and worn. The menu was not appealing. All together a sad experience in what was once a much better spot for business lunch."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "I made reservations for my fiance and I for his birthday. We had a great time. The food was excellent. The steaks were cooked to our preferences. The appetizer (garlic shrimp), side (mushrooms) and desert (cheesecake) were perfect for sharing. This is an ideal place for special occasions. "

  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "From the host at the door all the way to the servers, the service was very professional and thorough great experience."

  • "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."
