Fantastic process. If you order banana forest, they will cook it just in front of your table. I am truly surprised with them!

Whilst lovely memories were created in your previous location, your comeback has been splendid. Different point in my life - brand new memories to be made in your establishment. Keep up the tremendous work.

Loved the new Hys and really enjoyed the live music . the service was good but the
Asparagus was really charbroiled and wasn’t that great. Steaks were done to perfection.
Bring back the stuffed baked potatoes pls and the cheese toast from years ago has been drastically altered. I guess I’m old school!

Food was spectacular...Service was well below what I would have expected. I have been to the old Hy's many times. I think they just have to get their act together on a busy night. Took well over 30 plus minutes from Salad to Main course...I did get an apology, but when this has occurred in other restaurants, a desert or wine might have been comped.

All in all very good. Only complaint was that the cheese bread portions were tiny. A bad look for the first dish served especially when as host I knew the bill was going to be well over 100 pp and as a long time Hy’s customer I have never been concerned that portions would be too small.

Ok, One other nit, waiter said he’d need to “ask the kitchen” if it would be ok to sub mashed potatoes for veggies. Waiter should have said no problem without hesitation. Saying he had to consult with the kitchen about 30 cents worth of mashed potatoes was amateur and not worthy of a high end establishment.

Amazing best summarizes our experience at Hy’s! Our server Annie was great and even gave us some recommendations on what places to check out while visiting Toronto. The ambiance is first class and the live music was a nice touch. Definitely a place to check out!

Hy's has a great ambiance. Very classy and tasteful. The environment is business professional, NOT gentleman and call girl, which was nice to see. The food was great but not excellent. The steak was not cooked to perfection, in fact, my t-bone was undercooked around the bone and one side was over salted. The brussel sprouts smelt like fried oil, I couldn't even eat them. The salted caramel creme brulee was too sweet and not salty at all. However, I would go back. The overall experience was an 8/10.

We arrived early and we sat at the bar and had the meatball dish and a few drinks, the bartendars were very personable, friendly and efficient. Went up with our clients and our waiter took their coats and checked them in and got our drinks right away. The food came fairly quickly and it was all great. We were heading to the Toronto game and we got out on time to go over.

The renovated Hy's Steakhouse is a great place for lunch or dinner. Located at Bay and Richmond, it is easy to get to, service is excellent, food tastes great, and it is very comfortable atmosphere. It was a real treat.

Guest and I both ordered the steak salad, terrible, tough and really not a good flavour. Overpriced not to mention.

Only real issue was that the Steak Diane seasoning / sauce was too strong; possibly to reduced...

Great to try once, but nothing super wow. Meat was very good - that is expected for 180$ steak though . The sides choices were underwhelming. Appetizers - escargots were great, oysters and shrimp just okay but at $26 -$28 should be impressive. While it is a Bay Street steakhouse, it is expected to be overpriced, but the quality of food and drinks should be elevated along with it.

New location is great. Beautiful ambiance, a little bright in the lounge though. Our server was amazing. Meal was well paced and steak cooked perfectly. The tuna appetizer was delicious. They leave no stone unturned.

The serve was nice at the beginning. I told him it was my birthday he wished me happy birthday. I found out at the end of the night 2 of my friend asked for him to bring a cake and he said ignored them until they had to say flat out say “are you going to bring the cake” He said no. I was so embarrassed and disgusted. I would never go back. Especially because the table right in front of us got the same serve to sing happy birthday. And it was a problem for me. As sad as it sounds I question if race had to do with it. Everyone was so nice to him why would he treat someone like that on their birthday.

Pricey for what you get, even for a business dinner. Not likely to repeat. There are excellent alternatives that offer better value.

I was a little disappointed with the presentation of Chateaubriand. Large chunks of cauliflower and broccoli definitely skewed the “artistic” plating.

Came here for a date and the food was amazing. The service was even better. Our server, Nick K, was AMAZING. he made our night so much more special due to his attentiveness and knowledge. He recommended the Negroni to my boyfriend and he now has a new favorite cocktail. Nick was fantastic, would definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the area!

This was our first time at the "new" Hy's. The Friendly Staff, Great Atmosphere, Beautiful Bar and Dining Areas, Great Service, and of course, the Great Food, Drinks and Desserts, were as great as always. I have never been disappointed with Hy's in all the years since I first started going back in 1981. And of course, the Cheese Toast Is Still To Die For! I believe Hy's to be the best restaurant in Toronto and I would highly recommend it.

Came here for NYE dinner and it was an amazing experience. The decor and ambiance of the place is top notch, I was very impressed. Also, the service was great throughout our time there. The food was fantastic, pricey but definitely worth it! Would recommend to anyone looking for a night out for a birthday, anniversary, etc.
