Steakhouse
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.

The food was beyond exceptional, the service was beyond phenomenal, and atmosphere was comfy. This was our 50 year anniversary and absolutely loved the experience.

Never disappoints...a taste of the real Vancouver. Real Caesar salad and excellent service. Steak prices are insane but that seems to be the norm these days.

The steaks were very good. both cooked to perfection. The overall ambiance and noise level was acceptable for the meal. Appetizers were also very good. Side dishes were a little bit plain such as fries or mashed potatoes, and the dessert was not as great as the steak.

My boyfriend has wanted to try Hy’s for a long time so we came here for his birthday dinner. We had a great time and enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine, two appetizers (the scallops were delicious!), filet Mignon, and cheesecake dessert. The service and food were amazing. We can’t wait to go back!

In my opinion, Cheese bread was tasty and soft. Onion soup was the best in town. The steak tartar was good. However, chicken salad was minced chicken meat cake instead of fillet. My husband’s rib eye was so so. It was too darkened and meat quality didn’t worth $60.
Hy’s was my favorite steak house 20 years ago. With a very comparative market in Vancouver, they need to work harder to win customers. I might or might not recommend it to friends for steaks when there are lot more choices out there. Otherwise the services were excellent.

I still think Hys the best steakhouse in Vancouver.
You have to have the cheese garlic toast, the steak was unbelievable.
It’s not a trendy loud steakhouse like some of the other new ones, it’s just a great place to take someone out for a special night

Everyone says to get the cheese toast. They're right. Over the top. I wasn't too hungry so I ordered the wedge salad and two sides, my husband also ordered the wedge salad, filet mignon steak, and a side. Everything was delicious. The portions were huge. Salads were lovely, the best wedge salad I've ever had, and that would have been enough for me. Steak was done to perfection (I did have two bites just to test, of course) and the sides! I was thinking the usual five spears of asparagus and a small branch of broccoli. WELL, both were cooked perfectly and I did manage, with help, to finish the asparagus but took home the broccoli. Must have been almost a pound of each. Why did we wait so long before dining here?

So it was my first visit in probably 25 years we always went when I was a kid with the family but this was the first re visit since I would say the early 80's and I wanted to take my sweetie to an original Vancouver icon. I hoped it would be what I remembered it as.

And it was.

Our server Karen was outstanding,entertaining and answered all our questions from wine pairings to questions about the ingredients in specific dishes and just genuinely made our evening so enjoyable. Her table side service was impeccable ....cant say enough about her.

The only disappointment for me was being seated upstairs rather than in the more lively area downstairs where you are more in on the action. It was kinda dark and gloomy upstairs for a couple with nothing really to look at. Would love to come back but would want to sit downstairs. Thank you Karen !

I had a New York Strip Loin steak. I hate to say it but it reminded me of Mr. Mike's steakhouse of yore. The steak was thin, tough and sinewy. I didn't finish it. You might want to try Costco to source your steaks. Their strip loins are much better and more tender.

I love hys. Plain and simple. It just always delivers. Except this time. Karen our server was amazing and warm and smart. She remembers our tastes and preferences always.
The food just missed this time. It was kind of meh. In fairness, Karen offered to have a new steak made for me but I declined. The filet didn’t look or taste as good as it normally does. Neither did the peppercorn sauce. Or the fries! And weirdly neither did the key lime pie. The oysters and cheese bread were perfect.
But the ambience and the evening and of course Karen was lovely.
We’ll be back - but not till the end of the summer for an occasion. It was probably a one-off.

Hy’s is one of Vancouver’s finest, and our recent visit was no exception. High quality steaks are backed up by top notch service. It can be a little pricey for anyone seeking something less than the best. Greatness has its costs though and we’ve never regretted dining here.
