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.

our steak was way too salty and the end part was a bit over burnt, so it tasted bitter...

For future diners, don’t forget to inform your server about light seasoning.

The atmosphere was nice! It was my wife's birthday so they even put a little candle on her cake and wrote happy birthday in chocolate. A pleasant little surprise!

Went here for our 10th anniversary. I was a little hesitant to spend so much money on a meal, but after experiencing the quality at Hy's there were absolutely no regrets! The appetizers were delicious, and the filet mignon was easily the best steak I have ever had in my life, no question. Everybody has to experience this place sometime!

Food was really good but I really question the price as I could make something pretty much the same for less than 20 bucks. When I am paying 60+ dollars for 1 meal I expect perfection for taste and presentation but it really only felt like a 20 dollar steak to me. Overall though it was a good experience...

They asked us the occasion, our 45th anniversary but did nothing. This is an old school Resturant with good wait staff and mediocre food. My bone in ribeye had a minuscule bone and was very fatty almost raw. Another steak was overcooked. The special toast was greasy and bland. The creamed spinach was bland. None of the four of us would recommend this restaurant.

It's a nice restaurant. My wife and I were here to celebrate my birthday. The environment is very good, the waiter is very professional. I mentioned in Opentable that it's my birthday before I come, and I think it would be better if I could have a little gift for my birthday.

The experience at Hy's, for a special birthday, was incredible. I was so pleased that I chose Hy's as it went beyond my expectations. All staff are highly trained to provide a decadent, luxurious experience. It's a well oiled machine and one that I will be going back to.

The New York strip was... adequate. The Wellington was good. Very professional and attentive service. The food is old school and that’s not a compliment. Bland potatoes and steamed green beans? This isn’t 1992. There was no hint anywhere of originality, zest, playfulness, creativity- anything that can’t be done at home. Whatever you get on the plate, you can do at home with a little time and effort. That’s the real let-down. Nothing was bad, but you don’t read a book to experience a story you could come up with, and you don’t go to a restaurant to eat food you could prepare.

What an amazing experience! The service was outstanding, the food and wine fantastic, and the restaurant itself was full of character. If you are looking for the perfect steak house, this is it. This was my first time, will definitely be coming back.

Everything is good, esp the steaks. Just that the calamari is below par, even after a re-do.

Lovely ambience for an old school traditional steakhouse. Very friendly staff. Great service. Most of the steaks we ordered are great - New York Strip is our favourite. The dry-aged rib steak is also fine. My Steak Au Poivre is a bit over done. And the cheese toast is a bit greasy and overrated. But overall great experience.

The steak was excellent, that's expected, right. However, for the cost of the food, $200 per person the "other" food, french fries (I think they are frozen??? That's criminal) they are terrible, seasonal vegetables were NOT seasonal and nothing special plus an additional $11 for a poor quality side dish??? Service considering the number of staff was inattentive, lacks a good Maitre D. Its ok, but it did not meet my expectation that its one of the best steak houses in Vancouver. The Manager needs to revisit the menu. Try the Hawksmoor menu, London UK, sorry similar pricing if not slightly cheaper but way better all round. Very good, but not good value for money, could easily do better with small improvements.

A great spot for a steak dinner. The menu is conservative, but has all the typical 'greatest hits' you might be looking for for a steak dinner with the usual suspects.

Hy’s never disappoints. Steaks are good. On this visit the service was outstanding. Paying $70 or $100 for a steak (that you get at a quality butcher for $15-20) still gets your attention. Expect to pay $125-$175 per person if you add modest bottle of wine ($90-$100), starter, dessert (not incl tax/tip).

Lovely old world style steakhouse in downtown Vancouver. It’s fun to watch the chef prepare the steaks on the mesquite fired grill too. We had an 8pm show to get to and barely made it, so give yourself plenty of time to relax and know it’s not “fast food”.

First time to try Vancouver after going to Whistler location for years.
Food was delicious - Caesar salad, made at the table, was a great start. Steak done to our tastes came with abundance of mashed potato. Completing the meal with veggies meant no room for creme brulee dessert. Servers attentive yet discreet.
Though nothing extreme, the layout of the floor felt a bit tight. Had a table relatively close to us though at a few steps higher elevation. Similar closeness to table behind my seat (but as same level). Perhaps tables at different parts of the restaurant would not have the same feel.

It had been years since we'd been to Hy's because of the crazy traffic in downtown Vancouver. I think we'll make the effort more often than once in 25 years 😊. It was a wonderful experience and a very enjoyable meal.

We are soooo disappointed in this evening.

The night started off great but our waiter was so rushed and overloaded with tables I’m assuming. He got our steak orders wrong so we waited. He left the rice side dish on the table so when the new orders came it was cold.
He did not ask us what sides we wanted just guessed and brought out whatever. He had a second opportunity to make it right and still, second round potato still wrong.

At this point our celebration was spoiled. He brings us the bill only comping the dessert. We’re not ones to ever ask for discounts and such but after the train wreck of service he had the odacity to test us to see if we would pay the entire bill even after his terrible service.

When bringing us the corrected bill, he said I’m sorry I should have come out with this bill first. He apologized for ruining our celebration. We tipped him well even though the service was below par.

I’m so upset that our night was ruined. The manager was no where to be found. No visit to the table to apologize. Just zipping around and barking orders here and there. If anything, the manager should she. Said anything. Brought some professionalism to the circumstance but nothing. We watched him as he hovered around. Looking cold and now welcoming at all.

I’ve been a Hy’s customer for so many years in Winnipeg. Then moving to Vancouver assumed it would be just as amazing. Not even close. Our last server we had was Dan. Dan was AMAZING. We will never come back unless he is our server. He was on point. Professional and knowledgeable.

We wish it was him that served us on such a big day

Nothing but disappointment with our server and the manager on duty.

Excellent food, they have a wide variety of suggestions. I will definitely recommend the cheese bread, ceasar salad, and in addition to steaks, get onion rings as a side! So yummy.
The service was outstanding.

Hy’s is always consistently good. They have been around a long time and their Vancouver location is almost historic. Would recommend it to anyone who would like to celebrate a special occasion.
