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.

    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 :)

    Underwhelmed
    Dined on 12/16/2013
    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 best Prime Rib in Toronto.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/14/2013
    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.

    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.

    I invited an important guest visiting from overseas for a bit of business and general catching up over lunch. I wanted an upscale steak house with character, good food and friendly service. We were not disappointed. Although pricy, it was worth it and made for a memorable and most enjoyable time.

  • Good But not the best
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/30/2013
    Lets get the good out of the way. Service was outstanding! and because it was our anniversary they restaurant gave us Dessert for free. The ambiance was amazing and it was really romantic! But people go out to restaurants for the food. Me and my other got the Steak (New York strip for me and Filet Mignon for my other) I got it with Hy's steak sauce (which in its self was great) But what my main problem was the quality of the meat. Mine Had allot of fat and just tasted bland the sauce helped but for the rating of this restaurant I expected better. My other ordered one type of steak and got it but didn't get it with the advertised dressing( assuming the kitchen forgot) So she didn't like her fat filled steak. The rest of the meal was great.

    Ceasar aalad made to the table with rusty pre-cut lettuce and no fresh garlic (garlic in oil). Baby back ribs tender but weird tomato sauce on top. French fries are frozen fries and tadted like flour. T-bone perfect. Creme brulée as well. Overprice for quality. You pay for downtown financial district attitude.

    Every year my wife and I take our son to a different steakhouse in Toronto for his birthday. This year it was Hy's turn. From the beginning, it seemed the wait staff was in a hurry for us to leave. We felt rushed and after awhile they left us alone. In fact, we had the whole dining room alone. There was no one there with us. We can only assume that the place was bought out with a private party. The food was poorly prepared, not at all fresh, and very expensive compared to other, better steakhouses we have frequented. We will not recommend Hy's and we certainly won't be back.

    The Keg's big brother really delivers. Great service and a diverse selection of meat and seafood make it very appealing to all. The escargot was very good (traditional) and the sides big enough for 4 to share. The only disappointment was the tableside preparation of the bananas foster. Mundane and the pancakes were inedible. But still, a very fine dining experience.

    We were welcomed right from the start and went into the piano bar where there was an amazing piano player and bass player. We had nice drinks and then went to our table in the upper level overlooking the restaurant. On opentable I said it was our Anniversary and they gave us free champagne to start and a nice dessert to share. Food was great: oysters, crab cake, steak neptune for mains, and wine. Would highly recommend.

    We were attending the Eagles concert and had dined at Hy's in the past; - good location for moving onto to the concert venue; but, most importantly - Hy's delicious cuisine and comfortable and private atmosphere were the main reasons we chose this establishment. We were pleased with the attentive, excellent service and all our meals (2 couples) were exceptionally good. We definitely would return and would recommend Hy's to our friends, Sincerely, R & D

    Very good overall experience. High quality food and wine; steaks were cooked exactly as ordered, which isn't always as easy or common as you might think; excellent service. Only slight quibble is that the peppered steak really is encrusted with a lot of pepper. A little too much, IMO. I look forward to going back.

    A wonderful experience started with the Valet service. From there they took our coats willingly and very polite. My party of four had steaks and I had the cajun Ahi Tuna. I can say that the tuna was done to perfection with the Cajun seasoning. It was a little peppery as were the mushrooms and the steaks. But overall, the food was delicious and the deserts were beautifully presented. I would recommend going and would just ask to go easy on the pepper.

    We have been to a few other steak houses in the GTA and Hy's by far gave us the best service. Our server was awesome, she had so much positivity coming out of her. We ordered filet mignon (too dry and had this comp'd after being asked how our steaks were) and the "only" Hy's New York strip which was excellent. Table side Caesar was good too. Booth seats were a bit tight and we are small stature so not sure how comfortable medium build customers feel in the booths. Overall we will return for the NY strip again (but go to Ruth Chris for filet)

    I am not really a steak fan... But I was taking my boyfriend out for his bday. Since I was at a steakhouse... I did get a steak. It was amazing. My boyfriend lived the restaurant... And he has been to many if the popular steakhouses in the city, the service was excellent... Very attentive and informed staff. Caesar salad to die for as was the bread. I had also made the reservations indicating that it was a bday dinner ... They surprised us at the end of the meal with a yummy and complimentary dessert. They also have valet parking for $12!!! Will dine here again!!

    For a high end steak house this wasn't a great experience. Our table felt like we were on the side of a runway with the constant commotion and the server disappeared after the entres were served. The steak was okay, but the vegetables were tasteless and the lack of service as the night progressed was disappointing. For the cost I would eat at the Keg everytime.
