One only needs to enter the cozy establishment to realize the extent to which Hy's adheres to tradition. The polished mahogany walls, cocktail bar, solid furnishings, and art have been lovingly maintained since they were first installed in 1962. And, with minor exceptions, the menu remains unchanged, featuring the finest Canadian Prime beef and seafood, not to mention Hy's sublime cheese toast.

Hy Five

I’d been once before, with people who kneecap the place. I was worried this might be a lesser experience. It wasn’t.

Great, informed service, formal setting but relaxed atmosphere. Steaks to die for, perfectly cooked. A little table-side theatre, if you want it, otherwise a warm, cozy feeling.

Would go back in a heartbeat.

Classic steakhouse that knows their stuff. There are reason why Hy's is still a favorite. Tableside Caesar salad and cherry jubilee, and the last stronghold of Steak Diane, yum-yum. Great meat and preparation.

Our dinner at Hy's was outstanding. From the appetizers ( table side caesar salad presentation
and cauliflower soup) to the perfectly cooked steaks (steak and lobster, filet mignon topped with gorgonzola cheese). The service was top notch. The atmosphere was wonderful to celebrate our anniversary. The Manhattan cocktail was one of the best I have had. Highly recommend Hy's

The stakes are tasted by only salt and paper,it,s very nice. So we feel the essential of beef.
They have old-fashioned interior. So it,s the best for the special day.

It was my wife’s 50th Birthday yesterday. Typically we hold our celebratory dinners at the Keg as we enjoy good food and steak and lobster is my wife’s favourite. An acquaintance recommended us to try the fantastic steaks at the Hy’s Restaurant instead as they were known to serve phenomenal steaks. We made a reservation requesting that it’s my wife’s 50th birthday and hoping that it would be a spectacular experience.We ordered your famous cheese bread and Caesar Salad which were rather delicious. We were eagerly anticipating the New York striploin as it’s recommended to be more flavourful and tender however we were quite disappointed. In this aspect, we definitely compared your steaks to the Keg’s. My wife had cut off approx 1/3 of her 10 oz steak which was all fat. We don’t eat steak fat and like it lean. My cut was quite fatty but not nearly as much as hers. We checked with our waiter and he informs us that it was like that with that kind of steak. Last I remembered, we ordered steak not fat. Overall, they were so-so steaks with a baked potato. There was Nothing spectacular. We have yet to encounter a similar experience with the same sort of steaks at the Keg. When it came to dessert, I asked if the waiter was aware it’s my wife’s birthday and he was. So when asked what we would Iike, I ordered the cheesecake, her favourite. The cake tasted ordinary. I would like to point out that it was not a complimentary birthday dessert, as I found out when I made payment. I guess exceptions aren’t done for special occasions at the Hy’s.
There you have it, this was our first impression and experience. As you can tell, I have put in some effort in elaborating our visit to the restaurant considering that it’s a high end establishment, charge for their meat and get paid for it. We are totally prepared to pay top dollar for really good food and service however sadly, Our meal experience at the Hy’s was not worth the expense and the quality of the steaks were much to be desired.

Hy's is exactly what a steak house should be! Great ambiance, delicious drinks, apps, steaks, sides, and desserts, and wonderful service. Bottles of wine are overpriced, but I'm not complaining. Dining at Hy's was a memorable experience!!
