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.

Blair was our incredible server - the best! We’ll go back because of him (the steaks were amazing too and the table side Caesar salad as well).

Love Hy's, totally old school steak house. Cheese toast is amazing, great ceasar salad and of course good steak! I am never disappointed!

The Arctic char was very nice. The New York steak had grizzle, was sinewy and difficult to cut.
I find that the restaurant in Whistler was very good, but will not return to the Vancouver restaurant.

The famous cheese bread was not tasty, they were not serving oysters, however, they failed to inform us in advance. The spinach salad and the creme brulee were not tasty. The service was ok, not spectacular for such high-end restaurant.

We very much enjoyed the food and the service was impeccable. However we were disappointed with the noise level particularly as we had unruly children sitting behind us. Partially because of the lack of a dress code, we felt it did not have the ambience or high class dining experience we were looking forward to.

Ambiance and decor are first-rate, and the service is excellent, but the food was heavy and very expensive. I ordered the Caesar salad, and it was too salty and saucy. The ribeye was tasty, but again, very heavy and too oily. I would not go again because for these reasons, but also because the cost was exorbitant.

This was a special occasion celebrating my Dad's 91st birthday. As a family we were fortunate enough to dine at Hy's weekly in the late 60's early 70's. The kids now take my Dad as it holds so many good memories. I have to say the steak and Ketel One vodka martini's were found to be sub par. My Dad didn't want to say anything and cause a scene - he didn't even finish his meal. The service was excellent and we were able to bring our own Bon Ton cake which they served complete with candles. Given our history with Hy's we will likely return and hopefully the meal will be more of what we have come to expect from Hy's!

My wife and I had oysters and we both are really sick as a result. You should not serve oysters, I just read online that that oysters are contaminated with Norovirus.

Only amazing thing about this place is their cheese toast! Nobody does it better than Hy’s! Unfortunately, their rib eye steaks are subpar for a fine dining restaurant. Steak was underseasoned and too charred on both visits to this restaurants. On our most recent visit, we asked the bus boy to pack up the bone from the bone-in rib steak for our puppies at home, but he proceeded to put the other dirty plates onto the larger plate that the bone was in while saying that he has a dog of his own at home too. After settling the bill and waiting for another 10 minutes with no sight of the bus boy with our doggy bag, we just decided to leave and not embarrass anyone.

Unfortunately we had a horrible experience, there were over 5 errors with on of our friends meals and management was not helpful or apologetic. They did not apologize nor come up with a solution and we ended up walking out. It was extremely disappointing considering I have always heard great things and was looking forward to my food and experience at Hy’s. In the future I would not visit this location

We were being seated even when we were 20 minutes ahead the reserves time. Our waiter Max was super friendly and helpful. We went with his recommendation on the “Today’s Special” and the food was really good. The restaurant has a good vibe and the most important the food and service are inline with the price you pay. Unfortunately we were too full to enjoy the dessert but we will definitely go back again.

My wife and I took our son to Hy’s to celebrate his 25th. My wife ordered herself the filet mignon which she thoroughly enjoyed and my son and I shared, on the recommendation of our server, the Seafood Tower! We love seafood and needless to say, we loved every morsel on that platter! Oh yes....regardless of your carb count for the day, get the cheese toast appy....
🤤DELICIOUS🤤
The service was friendly, prompt and addressing my son by his first name and wishing him a happy birthday was a nice touch. My wife and I have been here several times over the past few years and will return for our wedding anniversary as we both want to experience the tableside serving of the CHATEAUBRIAND FOR TWO!
Lastly, the atmosphere is usually what you would expect for fine dining, unfortunately during this recent visit, a guest sitting behind us was obviously enjoying her beverages which effected the volume of her voice and laughter😬🤫

Food was top notch and service was good albiet a little slow. My only complaint was at the end when we decided to use two $100 gift cards which would have had balance to spare. The server asked everything was good instead of if we would like to keep our gift card with the remaining balance as we had given a cash tip. Slightly agitated at the lack of communication but still an overall great experience. Will definitely be back!
