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.

Private Dining

We can accommodate parties from 12 to 50 guests in our semi private rooms downstairs or our private upstairs.

Would be best if the complimentary dessert will be done again by Hy's to its valued customers especially on special occasions i.e. birthdays, anniversaries, retirement, etc.

Bone-in rib Steak is amazing. Juicy and tender. I would strongly recommend medium rare.

Excellent service. Incredible authentic atmosphere of an old school steakhouse. Ribeye was seasoned and cooked to perfect medium rare.

Beautiful restaurant and excellent quality food. I would highly recommend the porterhouse and the warm spinach salad. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner.

After three exceptional meals at Hy’s about two months ago, the dining experience this time with four of us was very disappointing for the price we paid. The pepper steak, while crunchy and tasty, was not tender. The medallions of beef were somewhat chewy and the beans served with our meals were overcooked. As well, one member of our party pointed out something to which we never would have paid attention. While both glasses of champagne brought to our table were filled slightly over half, a woman next to our table was served a glass of champagne filled nearly to the top. This along with the fact that our service was mediocre resulted in a disappointing, expensive evening.

My husband and I were there celebrating my birthday. The server seemed rushed as he had larger tables he was serving. With the steak we got it did not say on the menu that it was served with a side. Wish this was told to us by our server or on the menu (maybe I missed this). The food was okay. It is a little dark in there and the tables can be quite close together. I don't think I would go out of my way to go here again.

We have going to Hys since the late Sixties. It remains the BEST restaurant and steakhouse in Vancouver-both the cuisine and service are exceptional!
It remains the Gold Standard.

Although service was outstanding I thought our cut of meat was smaller than I’ve had with chateaubriand and a quarter of the meat was very tough with gristle. Not the way a chateau of beef should be. We had specified in the reservation it was our anniversary but no mention was made. Sorry won’t be back.

Absolutely amazing for my first fine dining experience!
Cheese toast is definitely as good as everyone says, Caesar salad is definitely the best I've ever had, and the steaks are cooked to perfection! No extra sauce or seasoning so you can taste the flavors of the beef.
The banana foster for desert is also a treat! Having it prepared tableside, it's super fun to watch. All in all an amazing dinner.

Loved our experience! Hubby and I went for our anniversary. It had all the makings for a romantic evening... warm, cosy decor, outstanding service and delicious foods served with the appropriate amount of food on your plate!! Just don’t dress like a slob. It’s a nice place, not some casual restaurant!

how can you screw up a baked potato in a "best" steak restaurant?... I can't imagine but they did, which was a sign of things to come. Skip the fact that there were 2 kid birthday parties going on and we had to move our table.. the green peppercorn sauce was not even at an amateur level, and unless you are planning to purchase bottles of over priced wine, by the glass red was at such a low level, I was shocked.

if this was a reasonably priced family restaurant, I'd rate it a 5. as what is purported to be the #1 or #2 steak restaurant in Vancouver, I wouldn't bother rating it or keeping it in may contact list, because I'd never go back.

good: staff was not at fault, though he did miss some things, and the actual piece of meat I had was acceptable, though all things considered, extremely over priced.

I'm a veteran of high end restaurants, so my expectations were not out of sync, nor cost if there was any value there.

Amazing food and service as usual. One of the best places if not the best place to have steak in Vancouver. The duck main course is amazing as well...and dessert wow, my fav is the bourbon chocolate cake.

I will tell my friends not to order bone-in-rib steak as it might be overcooked even from my experience your request for medium rare was given. I will also remind my friends to be mindful when requested for service from staff as there are different uniformed attendants with complicated division of duties. From my bitter experience, my request was ignored from a staff with white shirt and tie when requested for mustard. The sense of "ignore" was a complete failure with a "yes, Sir" response. Eventually, I need to ask a staff with grey jacket.

Disappointed!!! Expected to be much better! Cheese toast was great - But steak NO FLAVOR! Over cooked baked potato- the bananas foster a joke- only 3 pieces of banana and not prepared correctly! Good cocktails but nothing else - so many more options to choose from in Vancouver!

Hy’s was amazing. We were in Vancouver after camping for six nights in national parks and desperately wanted to end our vacation with a great meal. This place did not disappoint. Our server, Chad, was fantastic! If we’re in Vancouver anytime soon I will definitely be wanting to stop by Hy’s again. A great value compared to some of the high end steak houses in Seattle. Much better prices.

It had been a few years since I was last at Hy's. I love that it has very much remained the same in terms of atmosphere. The menu has something for everyone and everything is amazing. I took my Love there for his birthday. He had never been before and very much enjoyed the entire experience. Our waiter, Chad was wonderful. He provided helpful recommendations on menu choices and wine, and we were not disappointed.

One of the many things that set this restaurant apart (aside from the best steaks and service I've ever experienced) is that it is relatively quiet. I find most restaurants annoyingly loud. It makes it almost impossible to carry on an intimate conversation. At Hy's, we enjoyed a long leisurely dinner and had some lovely conversation to go along with it. Making this a most memorable birthday celebration.
