    My wife and I went as a celebration and our most enjoyable feature of dinner was our cheese toast appetizer. The rosemary spritzer my wife ordered was very refreshing as well. Unfortunately our chateaubriand was tasty but cold as were all the vegetables that came along with it. Service was excellent but our cold food did not match the cost for the evening and we left a little disappointed.

    Everything was excellent from the service, reception, and right up to the food. The only thing is , it is very high priced for the amount of food. For example....if a little salad or cup of soup were included and more veggies with the meal, I would go back more often!!!!! Otherwise, FANTASTIC!!!!

    My fiancé and I came here for our anniversary this year, normally we go to 529 Wellington but we thought we'd try something different. We got the chateaubriand for two and calamari as an appetizer. The serving sizes were not large enough and we left still hungry even though we had spent $150. If you're looking for a good steak spend your money at 529 instead. Same (if not better) steak and you will leave full

    We arrived right on time and was greeted by two friendly hostesses that led us directly to our table. It was in a very quiet and private location as I had requested. An older, professional server appeared and answered our questions and informed us that as we arrived at an early time of the evening (5:00 pm) that a special events menu was available at a greatly reduced price compared to the main one and included salad, main course and a desert. The normal menu was a la carte and would have been much more costly. The meal, service, ambiance all contributed to a wonderful, romantic evening for my partner and myself. We had a gift card that was accepted at full value even though it was almost a year old. We were very pleased.

    We took my husband's parents out to celebrate their 40th anniversary. The steak was so tender I could cut it with a fork. Great service, lovely atmosphere. Be prepared to pay more than most steak houses. However, for a special occasion, it is worth the money.

    I love that you get the entertainment from the waiter making your salad and bringing your choices for baked potatoes. I ordered the Neptune dish am requested medium but my steak came out rare and the crab meat wasnt as impressive as the description. But overall my self and two other partner had great time and the food is great.

This was a special evening for my husband and I as we live in a small community and do not get out for a nice dinner very often, food was excellent ! Unfortunately, we had a glass of wine spilled at our table, but the staff was there before we could blink an eye or be embarrassed, they had cleaned it up and quickly replaced soaked food items, amazing !, we truly felt they went above and beyond !!! Thank you !!

    I have dined at Hys many times over 40 years and I enjoy it very much. I enjoyed yesterdays meal. But the new menu disappoints me. Some of the deletions sadden me - the Seared Ahi Tuna and the Brocettes in particular. Also, the up charge for the previously included garlic toast and stuffed baked potato is a disappointment.

    Napkins placed on your lap, chairs pulled out, coat checks and knowledgable waiters. The service is impeccable. My company had spilled drinks and waiters quickly attended to, quick to remove all embarrassment! A fancy place with beautifully plated dishes. I had the scallops and jumbo shrimp which were absolutely delicious. Our waiter knew his wines and was thoughtful and courteous. This place truly knows how to give you a dining experience, and our food came out within ten minutes. From what I heard from others, the sirloin is a real treat. And their pistachio creme brulee was to die for! It was tough not to lick the plate clean. Hy's only hires the best, because they truly do make you feel like royalty. Absolutely Wonderful!

    We celebrated our anniversary with our adult kids (which I had mentioned on OpenTable when I booked) and they greeted us with Happy Anniversary, gave us a dessert on the house and generally made us feel special, but not over the top bothering us. The food was very good - we all had steak - was just a bit disappointed with the caesar salad - had heard it was wonderful, but the romaine was limp and not very tasty - the dressing was good. The desserts (our special one) and the banana foster were both excellent. It was a very nice anniversary evening - the service from everyone we encountered was excellent.

    We were really impressed with the wine list and the service. The portion size of the appetizers was depressing. For almost 18.00 we'd like more than half a piece of toast, a thimball of cheese and a few small pieces of salmon artistically placed on a plate. The entrée of Chateaubriand was very good.

    We really enjoyed our romantic dinner on Friday evening. We were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. It was a lovely evening. We shared a delicious made from scratch Caesar salad which was delicious, and was served with hot garlic toast. Then shared an order of escargot, also piping hot and delicious. We both ordered the Filet Mignonette Neptune. It was a perfectly cooked (medium rare as requested) filet, topped with King Crab, fresh asparagus, and hollandaise sauce. Very delicious! Then they brought us a lovely chocolate tart filled with chocolate mousse and a candle for my husbands birthday. A lovely evening. Service was thoughtful and attentive.

    Our 40 th and we had high expectations. Was very specific when ordering our steak and when they arrived I cut into mine and the blood juices were flowing. My steak had been grilled on one side to the desired order turned over with almost the order blue (VARY RARE) and as our server did not appear any where near I started to eat from the edges (the thinner more done) and was enjoying the potatoes and veg's. My wife's order was done to her liking and as ordered med rare and yet mine was much rarer than hers and I order mine medium after much discussion with our server. It was only after I had almost finished my potatoes + veg's the gentleman who brought out our meals from the kit I showed him the rare order. waiter came by then. too late

    My husband and I received a gift certificate for dinner at Hys. Our dinner was wonderful even though my rack of lamb was too rare. Our waiter William was super understanding and we were treated to dessert on the house and we're not required to pay for my meal....even though I didn't complain and would have just paid without saying anything! Would visit again and recommend to our friends!!
