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.

Chad was an excellent waiter and all the staff, including the valet were courteous and professional. The food was amazing, as was the bananas foster presentation. The steaks were done to perfection. We'll be back!

Hy’s is one of Vancouver’s finest, and our recent visit was no exception. High quality steaks are backed up by top notch service. It can be a little pricey for anyone seeking something less than the best. Greatness has its costs though and we’ve never regretted dining here.

good environment for business chatting or for a date, definitely will let your guest feel respected. But in terms of the taste and the value of the food, I would say not the first choice if you just want to enjoy eating a good meal, there are other steakhouses would serve similar food with cheaper price.

My family has been coming to Hy’s for three generations. There are so many trendy restaurants in town but only one Hy’s. It’s a classic and we love how the ambiance and food elevate any special occasion. Thanks and stay the course!

The wait for the food is so long. I would expect to be served with an appetizer on the house if the wait is going to be long. However, we didn’t receive any appetizer, even when we asked if we can be served by some bread and butter, we were told that the only option is to order cheese and bread which I was sure that would have taken some time.

This is our second visit and sadly may be our last. The cheese toast and caesar salad were tasty but the table side Chateaubriand was served lukewarm at best. The bearnaise sauce was cold and without it made the steamed vegetables very plain. Our dessert of Banana Foster was good. Overall the food was good but the table side preparation did not warrant the price of food that I feel I could have been served elsewhere for half the price. Our server, Andrew (?) was attentive and pleasant but I believe was in training based on the pointers he was receiving during the table side services. Everyone starts somewhere, I don't fault him for that and perhaps that's why the main was cold. We had a 5pm reservation so initially the ambiance was pleasant and as we remembered it from a previous visit but by the time we ordered dessert I was disappointed to note people in sweatshirts and caps, crying babies and barefoot toddlers. I know this is a tricky one for high end establishments. You want to maintain a certain atmosphere that warrants a $200 meal while not seeming to discriminate against families with young children. Maybe a suggested dress code if not an enforced one like they do at resort restaurants. Unfortunately between the Keg ambiance and the cold food at that price I feel like we might explore one of Vancouver's other offering next time we're looking for a high end night out.

I ordered New York Steak Neptune in medium rare however the steak came well done. The server took the steak back to kitchen right always but the second try wasn’t better. It’s was partially because of the cut I think - one end is thicker than the other side. Our server is super nice offered us a thicker cut (third try) but it’s too salty. I feel sorry that the chef had to redo my order three times but can’t complain more since our server took great care of us.

We always dine at Hy’s whenever it’s a special occasion and they never fail to deliver outstanding service every time! The hostesses were very pleasant and the server assistants were also really nice. Max was our server and he was great, very attentive and a really friendly guy. He made sure we had a nice dinner and he even remembered it was our anniversary which was very sweet of him. We ordered the cheese toast, porterhouse, a double stuffed baked potato, as well as the bananas foster and everything was delicious as always. Will definitely continue to come back for all of our special occasions!

Everybody says it but I'll say it again, the cheese bread is awesome. Our steaks we're cooked perfectly as ordered. While appreciate that it is an expensive process to make steaks of this quality, it was still a very expensive meal that may not be worth the experience for everyone. I couldn't eat here everyday, but I'll definitely come back again on special occasions.

While we had an overall nice experience at the restaurant, we specifically came to the to celebrate our first anniversary. However, we came to Hy’s 6 months prior to celebrate 6 months together and our experience was completely different. It felt like a far more special occasion and our previous server (his name was Matt or Mark) did an exceptional job and recognized that we were there to celebrate something. We felt that while the service was alright, it didn’t feel like the Hy’s standard we had previously treated to. On both occassions we spent a generous amount on each meal (about $300 for two people) but there was a noticeable difference in our experience. Only after that we paid the bill that our server was informed of the occasion. However, I felt like other tables were asked why they chose Hy’s for the evening or if they had been before. So while we gave it a 4... it was also slightly disappointing.

Hy’s is always our go to restaurant in Vancouver for special occasions. This time we were celebrating my wife’s birthday. The evening was amazing. Our server Chad provided exemplary service. The manager Phil went above and beyond with extra special touches that made my wife’s birthday even more special, including ensuring our favourite desert was available that night. Thank you also to the chef for making the old-style stuffed tomatoes with spinach inside-it was a real blast from the past and much appreciated.

Cheese toast. Caesar salad. Chateaubriand for 2. Spicy Caesars. Golden.

Resist the rookie mistake of ordering an additional plate of cheese toast as you won’t enjoy the rest of your meal (will be too full). Better to come back for it another day. I certainly will...happy eating!
