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.

I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday last year and we just had to come back this year!! We also always come back for any special occasion such as our anniversary and Valentine’s day. Max was our server and he was amazing. He greeted my girlfriend happy birthday which is very thoughtful and even brought her a candle for her dessert.

Food is always on point. We shared cheese toast with our group and my girlfriend and I shared the porterhouse steak. Portions are very big here so splitting an entree is nice because then you can try other stuff on the menu. We also got a double stuffed baked potato which was so good, you have to get it as an add on!

We are always looking forward to our next visit to Hy’s, highly recommend this restaurant as well as Max!

Best Steakhouse ever... this steakhouse is everything I like in a dining experience. The ambiance is intimate and comfortable. I love the dim lighting. The food was off the chart & the service impecable. I’d tell you our waiters name but we enjoyed too much good wine & ive forgotten. By the way, the wine list is top notch!! Don’t miss this WONDERFUL eating establishment. Amazing!!!

I had oysters which were good, think they were Kushi.
I had a great bone in steak which had a great charred aroma.
Great cocktails and bantering from the wait staff. She was funny

our server was really friendly and helpful with the menu. We almost went to Gotham's steakhouse but decided on Hy's and I am really glad we did. Dining here involves more than more than just filling an empty stomach. The ambience is dark and warming, cosy for an evening meal. The waiting staff are dressed in a smart uniform which adds a special touch. The table side dining was impeccable and artistic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to come back soon.

I have been coming here for more than a decade. I am familiar with the mixed grill specials and fish specials of the day that they normally have. The restaurant is often very consistent with the service. The seasoning of the steak is sometimes inconsistent.

My recent visit though I experienced a major stench from the steak (porterhouse) as did my dining companion (Angus Rib Steak) The steak had a stench that smelled like a cross between aged bone marrow and cheese. I didn't particularly enjoy that experience.

I eat steaks on a regular basis from Angus to PEI, Wagyu and I definitely know its not normal to have steak aroma like that even though the steak itself might be alright. It's a definite concern for the brand image. Owning a restaurants myself I definitely know the importance of brand image and consistency. Please fix it.

Hy's is definitely the place to go to celebrate the special occasions!

We've been to our share of nicer restaurants and this will be another one we add to our list. We had the caesar salad which the waiter prepares at your table from fresh ingredients. The caesar salad is to die for! We've had caesars made many different ways and this one definitely tops my list.

We ordered steak dishes for dinner. It would be unfair for me to make any impartial judgement on it simply because we recently had Kobe beef in Japan in Kobe.

The host staff is always on top of things. Water glasses are filled when needed without asking. Waiter is always there when needed. Text book perfect example of great hosting!

Highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family as well as others!

Went to Hy's on Sat. Aug. 10th/19. My mom ordered the top sirloin steak (medium well) but it was prepared more on the medium rare side. The server was notified, and gladly informed the kitchen that the steak needed to be cooked accordingly to how it was ordered. I was expecting that they would provide my mom with a new steak and/or plate, but they just threw her eaten steak back on the grill and gave her the same steak (it was cooked properly at this point). The server said that the Manager took a cocktail and appetizer off our bill (which was equivalent to approx. $25.00). I was not entirely impressed with this service, given the reputation of the restaurant. Not sure if I would come back here after this to be honest. Just expected better for the price you pay to eat here. Other places such as The Keg will provide a new steak if the original one has not been cooked properly.. Not sure why it was not done at Hy's.

Food is awesome. It was a little cramped for my liking in terms of table placement. A bit noisy for something so swanky. But none the less. It was great. I'll be back

We had the most wonderful time at Hy's Steakhouse! We were recommended this restaurant by a couple we met while enjoying breakfast at Jam Cafe that morning. Being from out of town we really like trying restaurants and especially enjoy trying the places the locals love...so grateful we listened to them and made a reservation. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be back the next time we are in Vancouver BC.

This is one of the classiest restaurants in Vancouver. Meal was excellent, they have some one of dished that you don't see most restaurants do, or they just do have the waiting staff that is properly trained to do. If you are wanting to enjoy yourself, you will need to tell your waiter to slow down or they will try and rush you through a Great Meal and before you know it, you are walking out. A Great Gem

Dined here to celebrate our 30th anniversary. First time for both of us. Despite the fire alarm going off just after we ordered drinks and having to step outside for a few minutes (part of the adventure), the whole experience was excellent. The staff was very attentive, always taking care of our needs before we knew we had any. The food was spectacular and was brought to our table quickly after ordering, but we at no point felt rushed. Our waiter Jared was top class and even paid for our drinks to make up for the fire alarm inconvenience. The most enjoyable dining experience my wife and I have ever had. We will definitely be back, and won't be waiting another 30 years.

Always good food and good service. Note to the restaurant manager... banquet tables are good for a banquet not fine dining and not when you’re cramping us in a corner. A little niggle on an otherwise pleasant evening but a couple of people were somewhat uncomfortable due to the table legs and position of the table.

It‘s a nice place with character, and service was very friendly and efficient. The Caesar Salad prepared at the table was fantastic, and the cheesecake for dessert gorgeous. But - In a steakhouse, you‘d like to have a good steak, and that was not forthcoming. The New York Strip was partly charcoaled, of no outstanding meat quality, and certainly (and luckily) not the 14 oz. I paid for.

We found the service lacking....which was surprising for such a high end steak house. Our food was served and no one came to dress our potatoes. We had to ask for our water to be refilled. Just disappointing.

The whole experience at Hy's was excellent, our waiter Alexa (?Spelling) was so focused with mom and I, we had a few questions to ask and he was able to answer. There was a mixup with the timing of main course and appetizer being served. I thought I didn't order our appy but he apologized and advised he was focused on our main courses but was able to bring out the appy quick. I advised him since receiving the main course and seeing how much food we had maybe we didn't need it. He said he'll bring and if we didnt eat he will wrap it up and take care of the cost . We thought that was very nice. I ordered the Beef Wellington and I totally enjoyed every bite, it melted in my mouth, so yummy. Mom had the prawns and scallops and enjoyed hers. We shared the twice baked potato which was delicious. When I booked through opentable I put it as a birthday, so we ordered keylime pie and he brought it out with a candle on it and they sang happy birthday to mom. I throughly enjoyed every minute of our dining experience and would definitely return to Hy's invthe very near future. Thank you Hy's for the incredible experience mom and I had. After our terrific dinner, we headed to our next event .... The Backstreet Boys concert. Thanks again ....... we'll be back soon !!!!

I took my parents for dinner at Hy's as they have very fond memories of going there when they first moved to Vancouver approx. 50 years ago. Our server, Karen, was a ray of sunshine! She made my parents very very happy. She seemed to know what they wanted without them even having to ask and created a memorable experience for them. The big smiles on my parents faces was largely thanks to Karen, for her gracious and professional attention to the customer and attention to detail.
