    I enjoyed this restaurant and food so much, I went 2 nights in a row... The stuffed rainbow trout that was on special the first night was the best rainbow trout I had ever tasted! The waiter knew the wine list and was able to help me make the best choice for our meal. Definitely order the cheese toast starter! I also appreciated not having garlic on the side order of mushrooms. The steaks are delicious!

  • A bit disappointing

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    Hy's has always been a favorite of ours, but we normally dine before the prime time dinner hour, and this time we arrived during the peak time, which resulted in slow and confused service: the butter for the lobster was forgotten, the sauce we ordered was forgotten, and there was a very, very long break between appetizers and main course. We didn't really see our waiter again after he took our order, until he brought the dessert menu. He was just too busy. The new vegetarian entree is not as good as the former lentil wrap, the rice flour dosas is much spicier, and a bit too filling. The lentil wrap was a perfect entree for the type of restaurant, worked well with any side dish, the dosas although good, just doesn't fit.

    My husband and I have heard great things about Hy's so we decided to have a nice dinner there. We made a note when booking on open table that it was for our mini moon. The food was spectacular, however the service was mediocre. We felt the server was in a rush for the most part. He was running around a lot and cooking other orders at other tables. He forgot to order one of our appetizers but we let it go as we understood it was busy and by that time our steaks had arrived. He was so busy we felt he wasn't as attentive as he should have as the table next to us was checked on quite frequently by their server. We did get a surprise from the restaurant though as we got a complimentary dessert to celebrate our marriage. Thanks Hy's!

    Being a vegetarian you don't have to worry if someone invites you to this steak house. The vegetables are really great. Brussell sprouts come with bacon so make sure you mention that you are vegetarian AND, the onion rings are fried with the calamari, so you may not want to eat those. Otherwise, definitely enough food and the key lime pie for dessert is wonderful.

    If you're in Whistler there are few steakhouses. Thankfully, this is a good one. Ambiance is the perfunctory leather booths, dark wood, low lighting...they have it all. They offer all the steakhouse favorites: filets, creamed spinach, baked potatoes, and the best cheese bread! There are many table side creations (steak Diane, Caesar salad, etc.) Service is perfect. The prices are high, but not egregious. Our only disappointment were the Oysters Rockefeller; very bland. If you love elegant steakhouses, you will love Hy's.

    everything you expect from a high end steakhouse except the quality of the food...average! Great place and especially staff but if you know steaks, its really nothing special. That being said, again the staff was excellent (Mark and the manager) and you do feel you're in a special place...and that costs. Note: I did what your not supposed to do and brought my 5 and 1 year old and they took excellent care of us ( I did request to sit away from the main dining though ) Thks!

    Our food order was late, and incomplete. Hot items arrived prior to salads. It was a terrible dining event for my family at any price. The new manager blamed the new system... gave us a free special coffee for messing up a $600 meal. Expect better, try the keg at 30 cents on the dollar...

    My $50 steak wasn't cooked the way I ordered it (came medium rare when I asked for it to be medium well) so I sent it back. They re-cooked the original steak. For $50, I expect a bit more. I sent it back and was served a properly cooked, crappier cut of meat. Service was meh, at best. The keg is 10x better.

    We enjoyed our meal but kitchen service was slow. 2 large groups came in just prior to our party of 5 and therefore our meals took a really long time. Having said that- our waiter was terrific and very apologetic as was the manager. They served me a complimentary glass of wine and took at least 20% off our meal bill.We really appreciated that they resolved the problem so kindly. Food was really FANTASTIC! Will return next time we are in Whistler!

We made our waiter work by preparing the showy dishes on the side of the table. The people were very friendly and always at hand. We hope to come back soon for your lovely steaks and deserts.

    Everything was great from start to finish. As always Hy's beef is superior to just about all other steakhouses. Our waiter was wonderful and even managed to get the bartender, Patrice, to give me his recipe for my cocktail. Having been married to the Comptroller of Hy's of Canada years ago, I have eaten at just about all Hy's over the past 40 or so years, and they are always consistent. As I now reside in California it was great to dine at Hy's again. I will be dining at Hy's Encore in Vancouver this up coming weekend. Yes, it is that good that one can certainly dine at Hy's twice in one week.

    During our recent visit to Whistler my wife and I spent our last evening of vacation at Hy's. We wanted a classic steakhouse experience, a good steak and a good bottle of red. Hy's delivered on all fronts. The restaurant is located in the heart of the Village within easy walking distance of most hotels / condos. The atmosphere is of a classic steakhouse - low lights, wood, leather. The staff is attentive but not intrusive. The selection of food is exactly what we wanted. I spent time selecting a good bottle of red from an iPad menu and had several good recommendations. We ended up with Papillion by Orin Swift which was a great accompaniment to our meal. We both commented that it was one of our better experiences while visiting BC.

    We visited Hys for our 9th anniversary and it was one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time the manager was friendly and our waiter Brian was so warm and welcoming made your dining experience a enjoyable evening . The wine list was wonderful and the menu this evening had a 4 course dinner which he explained and it was amazing . I had the halibut and it just melted in my mouth my spouse had steak and lobster and he really enjoyed it very much . What I liked was we had a later reservation and called to see about an earlier one they were very accommodating . Great place for a romantic dinner and yes maybe a bit higher priced menu but who cares when its a great dining experience. Will be back ..

    Hy's is my favourite steakhouse and we wanted to go here for our anniversary. We were going to go to the Vancouver one, but it was booked,so we decided to make it a fun adventure and drive up to the Whistler location that started it all. We both felt our first experience at Hy's (Whistler) was the best. I put in the notes for the reservation that it was our anniversary but it wasn't mentioned at dinner. I had to bring it up. It would have been a nice touch to do something a little out of the norm. I felt penalized for ordering the set menu too. We were also charged refills on pop, when they knew we were driving home after... that was kind of unnecessary. I didn't feel wow'd like I normally do leaving Hy's. A shame really.

    There is nothing better than a big piece of steak after a relaxing day at the spa in Whistler, and that was exactly what was provided to us at Hy's. The steaks were well cooked, and the cuts were generous and well portioned. The French onion soup was amazing as was the complimentary garlic bread at the start of the meal. I felt that the calamari was a bit oily, and did not live up to the expectations. Overall it was a great dining experience.

    We went to Hy's Steakhouse at Whistler to thank our hosts for a lovely weekend. The prices were very high but we thought the quality of the food would justify the cost. Not at all. I could have made a better, more flavourful steak at home. I ordered a New York strip and it was overcooked and tasteless. The side dish of broccoli was also tasteless. The service was very good and the atmosphere nice for intimate conversation, but I would not go back. Far too expensive for middle of the road fare.
