This is a normal evening dinner with my wife, she likes the steak very much. For my perspective, I prefer the Wellington steak, that’s really amazing!

Onion rings where the outer skin of the onion chewy steak was very fatty and very sinewy. The only good thing is our server was very polite

Always an experience to go hear. The old school culture of table service lives on in many aspects just not seen in restaurants these days. Attention to detail is second to none.

We celebrated a family member's 60th Birthday. We all ordered the steak Diane--amazing! An old school steak house with a dark, but cozy atmosphere. Meal was prepared tableside--entertainment in itself!
Meal was delicious but simple--no veggies on the plate other than than the mushrooms in the sauce. Options were available for the potatoe. On my next visit to Toronto I would definitely consider Hy's again.

Great overall experience. I was slightly underwhelmed with their steaks when I compare to other places. Also, the drink list was not that impressive. Very few cocktails and even fewer wine options (only looked by the glass). I think a steakhouse of that class shoes had an extensive wine list, but that's just me.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The dinner ambience was beautiful and intimate. We ordered the jumbo shrimp cocktail which we appreciated the deveining. The shrimp was delicious with it's cocktail sauce. Our steaks were delicious and cooked to our liking. Our servers name was Alklan. He made sure we enjoyed our food and overall experience. He made our dessert right in front of us which was the banana foster (I highly recommend ) . Give this place a try & ask for the server we had!

The service was excellent! Our waiter was friendly and efficient! We were there for TIFF so on a time table which was no problem for restaurant to handle. Ambience was lovely as always. The location was easy to get to.

Only disappointment was the potatoes and steak should have been hotter in temperature.

The service was incredible! My steak however was not. I casually mentioned this to the waiter and minutes later he was back insisting on preparing a new meal. I tried to convince him it wasn't a big deal however he insisted along with plan b, complimentary cheese or chocolate cake for dessert. He would not leave until he was able to whisk my plate away. Unbelievable! I would return.

We would not recommend. Not a good value. Mixed greens salad contained only iceberg and no blue cheese in the watery blue cheese dressing. Husband's filet a little tough, despite being medium. My halibut was overlooked on top of gloopy risotto. Asparagus was good. Mushrooms were too spicy, but That might be a personal preference. Feel bad for servers. Ours was very pleasant, but he had to deliver sub par meals.

So many great restaurants in Toronto. Spend your money elsewhere. Sorry Hy.

Restaurant is very nice, old style club feel. Waiter / service was great. Drinks were superb. Table made Ceasar salad the best. The steak was good but not the best I've had. Prices were high but In TO I guess that's the norm. I would go bac k.

Went for my birthday last night and we will definitely be back. The food was excellent, one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. I should also mention the service was phenomenal, we had several people waiting on our table it seemed and each one was very knowledgeable about the restaurant. They were also extremely patient with my wife as she really likes to browse the menu and ask questions before ordering. I would recommend to anyone, just keep in mind you pay for the privilege of eating here :)

We always go to Hy's when we visit Toronto from Michigan. The food is consistently good and the ambience hard to beat. The staff is very attentive and congenial. We brought good friends with us and they were delighted with the venue. The table side Caesar salad is one of the best (if not THE BEST) and special; there are very few restaurants around that still prepare the salad in front of you. Jumbo prawn cocktail and wedge salad were tasty and generous. We all had filets for our main course and the meat in Canada is slightly different than in the states. However, everyone was impressed by quality and flavor of the steaks. We ordered onion rings and brussels sprouts sides for the table and once again the group enjoyed the preparations. Onion rings were crispy and the brussels sprouts had a delicate flavor of bacon as well. We shared two desserts--pistachio creme brûlée and an apple crumble. Both were a perfect finale to a wonderful and memorable dinner!

Fantastic ambiance and some of the best stem I've had in Toronto. Your mileage may vary, but Hy's made me forget about Morton's, Ruth's Kris, and the Octagon immediately. Very strong sir selection, as expected.
