  • An Anniversary to Remember

    We had been to Hy's before and upon booking a hotel in Whistler for our very first wedding anniversary we decided we would spend our special evening enjoying a meal at Hy's! The service was so excellent, every sip of wine I took was replenished, along with the water. The timing was impecable, our meal was so seamless. It was relatively loud which was slightly offputting but everything else just drowned out that fact. Delicious food, great wine and excellent service!

    My boyfriend and I try to visit Whistler at least twice a year and we always make sure that a visit to Hy's occurs. Every time we have had dinner there, we receive outstanding service. Our wine glasses are always being topped off and our server is always there to check up on us. This most recent visit was no different. The server was exceptional, not only was he knowledgeable about the menu, but he was genuine and very friendly. He even picked up on the reason we were there, to celebrate our anniversary, and brought out our dessert with a candle and "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate. And to further add, he even made the dessert complimentary! It just reinforces why a visit to Hy's is always a priority on our list!

    Myself and my partner dined at Hy's during our stay in Whistler. It was my treat as it was his 30th birthday. On entering Hy's to leaving the service was excellent. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I had previously booked a table before leaving the UK and had informed them that it was my partners 30th. I did not hear anything back so didn't expect anything, however at the end if our meal the waiter brought out a slice of chocolate cake with a candle and Happy 30th Birthday wrote in chocolate on the plate which made not just my partners but my night. Our waiter was fantastic and very knowledgable and a credit to Hy's and Hy's is a credit to Whistler. I would recomend to anyone visiting Whistler.

    Disappointed when we ordered the spinach salad to start expecting it to be cooked at our table like the menu said and as it's done in Vancouver but just a cold average salad is delivered. Steaks were great however service felt rushed as meal arrived very quickly after ordered. Server also did not seem very engaged or make us feel 'excited' to be there. I originally wanted the Steak Neptune but was told by the server it wasn't very good (however i remember ordering it before and enjoying) so switched my order last minute. Would perhaps try the Vancouver location but feel other more friendly places exist in Whistler to dine. (Araxi and Rim Rock are much preferred for a special occasion dinner)

    We went to Hy's on the recommendation of a Vancouver bartender who had spent time in Whistler. He told us it was spendy, but worth it for the experience. He was absolutely right. We had 24 hours in Whistler and we're glad we picked Hy's for our only dinner. It was a bit hidden, but once we found it, the manager welcomed us warmly and our waiter took excellent care of us. Their extensive wine list is presented on an iPad, making it easy to access descriptions of wine, their labels and more. Overall we had a great experience and will definitely recommend it to anyone we know heading to Whistler. Since we live in Dallas, Tx they may be few and far between, but still...

    This was the second time my wife and I have visited this restaurant. The previous time was with a group and the restaurant was able to accommodate all eight of us without a problem. On this occasion, it was just me and my wife. The atmosphere feels like the meal is a special event. The food is very good and the daily specials always add something interesting to choose from. The wine list has a wide range and the iPad wine list is a nice technical touch that allows for further details for each wine. The service is spectacular, whether sitting at the bar with a drink or eating a full meal, the service really is top-notch. This will be one that my wife and I repeat.

    On arrival the interior appeared very dark but as you became accustomed to the light the ambience was amazing. Very romantic. The service was excellent helped by our very knowledgable server. The food didn't disappoint for flavour, but the scalloped potatoes could have been a little warmer. I suspect that it awaited my wife's dish to be ready before serving. The lamb was very very good, as was the halibut. Our wine choice aided by our server was a good selection too. Will be visiting Hy's again.

    Truly excellent steak and prime rib. Really liked the wine list on the iPad, although overwhelming and difficult to choose. $142 for one bottle of red wine that was good, not great. Just under $500 total (including a 17% tip) for a dinner serving 4 people -- no dessert and 1 couple shared their starter. We ordered 3 sides of vegetables (amazingly not included despite the steep cost of the main courses) -- only 2 arrived and we were charged for 3. Restaurant dimly lit and quite loud, so had to repeat ourselves often to our dinner partners. Ate a t a pub with live music the next night and it was way easier to have a conversation. Probably wouldn't return simply because of the poor value given so few courses. Quite comparable to The Keg.

    Ours was a wonderful evening dinner experience. Admittedly, it was on the later side and during the week so it wasn’t very busy. But, from start to finish everything was superb. The food was timely, well prepared and well presented. The serving staff was delightful and eager to please, I will most certainly return.

    I have been eating at Hy's for many years but I must say our dinner on Thursday was, by Hy's standards, average. We both asked for an 8oz beef tenderloin cooked medium rare. It came looking a bit smaller than what I expected and it was cooked "medium to medium well" If we were not so hungry I would have sent it back. Service was very good.

    We went to Hy's as part of a mini-break to Whistler. We enjoy eating out and regularly visit the best of what Vancouver has to offer. Sadly, our meal at Hy's was not at the level we expected based on previous reviews and the price point of the menu. While we weren't expecting anything avant garde, we were expecting excellent preparation and flavour - sadly the cut of my husband's steak was chewy (though cooked as requested), my fish was overdone as were the scallops, the asparagus was underdone and the mashed potatoes were bland. The buerre blanc sauce served with my fish was overly seasoned with too much salt. Our starters were better but blah - the caesar salad was, frankly, boring.and the calarmari overly breaded. We won't return.

    Hy's pretty much delivers on what you'd expect from their brand. The prices were high and the steaks were fresh, cooked properly, and seasoned delicately so you could experience the full texture and flavour of the meat. Well, unless you order the Hy's New York strip steak apparently since it gets drowned in steak sauce. For the price the side starches should have been more inventive (a choice of white rice, fries, or potatoes is pretty boring... it would have been nice to see something healthier and more adventurous on the standard menu like quinoa or wild rice).

    We had a great dinner at Hy's one night of our week-long Whistler ski trip. Our waiter Marvin was excellent in every way, striking just the right balance between professionalism and friendliness. I had a great Filet Mignon, my wife enjoyed her rack of lamb, and they let our grade school aged kids (two steak lovers) split a 12 oz Filet, which disappeared in record time. We also had a wonderful Tuscan red, which was priced at only about a 50% markup (a steal for a high end wine at a steakhouse), and great desserts capped off a fantastic meal.

    Mixed feelings about this visit to Hy's. We dined with 2 young children this time. We ate at 6pm yet still were rushed to finish & as our server said, "clear out in order to turn over the table since its so busy." Fair enough but it's Whistler with families on Family Day weekend. I didn't like being rushed. They were very accommodating to prepare a special meal for my son with multiple allergies. I accordingly paid an adult price for that specific meal. I wasn't expecting a children's meal price. And I didn't make crazy requests, just posed questions about ingredients and preparation methods like any person who is concerned about food allergies causing anaphylactic reactions. As a high end restaurant, I expected them to understand.

    You can't fault Hy's - great food, great service, classy sports bar decor Compared to other Steak restaurants in the area the food is definitely better, and quite a bit pricier, and yet was left with the feeling of "it's good but is it that good?" Others I know love it - I find it just north of okay.

    We went to Hy's after we read that it was voted Whistlers No 1 Steakhouse in the Pique magazine. We feel that it's overpriced compared to similar restaurants in Whistler. The food was OK. My husband and son enjoyed their steak but I found my Filet to be chewy and tasteless. The sides are ordinary and again too expensive. Dessert came from the supermarket freezer section. We won't be back.
