Birthday. It was good experience. Chad our waiter was friendly and informative.
Celebrated a close friend's birthday. Started with the famous cheesy bread and the appy scallops. Bread was excellent, scallops were okay. Slightly on the dryer side and the sauce was quite sour (passionfruit beurre blanc) I find that sauce pairing was a bit strange. We ordered a 8oz filet and a 10oz NY and shared that. The NY doesnt look like a 10oz, looked rather small. (I also work in the same industry and a former place I worked served 10oz NY and they are significantly larger) the filet was excellent, very nice and tender. The NY was a bit disappointing. It was a bit dry and not as tasty as I would expect from a high-end steakhouse. Also has a bit of over-charred flavour (almost a burnt) but both steaks temperatures are good. We ordered them medium rare. We also ordered 2 sides: creamed corn and asparagus. Corn was good, sweet and creamy. Asparagus was good but had few pieces were tough and I had to spit out. Also, asparagus is overpriced at $15. We also ordered 2 steak sauces; peppercorn demi glaze and the port demi-glaze. The server didnt warn us that was too much sauce. The sauce portion is huge and we could of definite cut back 1 sauce as we couldn't even finish half of the sauces. Didn't try any of the tableside dishes so I couldn't comment on that. Overall a decent experience but we were too full for dessert, so we skipped. Surprised they knew it was my friend's birthday and they didnt do anything about. No complimentary small pastry or any small dessert with candle. That part was rather disappointing. Value-wise I feel it's overpriced. We spent $225 incl. Tips. Didnt have any wine or desserts or it could be easily 300-400. Service was decent but nothing spectacular. 3.5/5 overall.
Everything from the moment we arrived was stunning. The restaurant itself was beautiful, the waiter was attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable, the cheese on toast (I Know!), was to die for, and the steak was as good as any I have ever tasted.
We have booked again for Sunday before we return to England.
Everything was great, my wife and I had not been to Hy's for many years and we were not disappointed - it was as good as we remembered it. Our server Karen was fun and helpful, she really added to a nice evening.
The food was beyond exceptional, the service was beyond phenomenal, and atmosphere was comfy. This was our 50 year anniversary and absolutely loved the experience.
The food is excellent, the server is polite and knowledgeable. The only problem is there is a table with a 3 month baby beside us, and the baby's cry is loud. The baby normally cry for 3 minutes, then the parent took the baby out for 5-10min, then come back cry for another 3min, then going out again, etc. This remind me why I don't go out eat much while my two kids were young. For this dinner, I finally got my kids to my parents home, so my wife and I can have a peaceful dinner, but then......... there was other people's baby beside us.... lol
Never disappoints...a taste of the real Vancouver. Real Caesar salad and excellent service. Steak prices are insane but that seems to be the norm these days.
Co-worker’s farewell lunch
The steaks were very good. both cooked to perfection. The overall ambiance and noise level was acceptable for the meal. Appetizers were also very good. Side dishes were a little bit plain such as fries or mashed potatoes, and the dessert was not as great as the steak.
My boyfriend has wanted to try Hy’s for a long time so we came here for his birthday dinner. We had a great time and enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine, two appetizers (the scallops were delicious!), filet Mignon, and cheesecake dessert. The service and food were amazing. We can’t wait to go back!
Never! It was Birthday dinner surprise and our reservation was canceled 5 minutes prior, because of fire in the kitchen. No follow up , offering to reschedule etc.
In my opinion, Cheese bread was tasty and soft. Onion soup was the best in town. The steak tartar was good. However, chicken salad was minced chicken meat cake instead of fillet. My husband’s rib eye was so so. It was too darkened and meat quality didn’t worth $60.
Hy’s was my favorite steak house 20 years ago. With a very comparative market in Vancouver, they need to work harder to win customers. I might or might not recommend it to friends for steaks when there are lot more choices out there. Otherwise the services were excellent.
Everything was good, service, food. Family was happy with the experience.
Great way to celebrate birthday. Cheese toast is as good as the hype. Fish platter excellent husband loved filet. Felt like our waiter was there just for us.
I still think Hys the best steakhouse in Vancouver.
You have to have the cheese garlic toast, the steak was unbelievable.
It’s not a trendy loud steakhouse like some of the other new ones, it’s just a great place to take someone out for a special night
Reminded me of the old Hys .... congratulations your back
Everyone says to get the cheese toast. They're right. Over the top. I wasn't too hungry so I ordered the wedge salad and two sides, my husband also ordered the wedge salad, filet mignon steak, and a side. Everything was delicious. The portions were huge. Salads were lovely, the best wedge salad I've ever had, and that would have been enough for me. Steak was done to perfection (I did have two bites just to test, of course) and the sides! I was thinking the usual five spears of asparagus and a small branch of broccoli. WELL, both were cooked perfectly and I did manage, with help, to finish the asparagus but took home the broccoli. Must have been almost a pound of each. Why did we wait so long before dining here?
Service staff was nice and attentive and knew their food.
Amazing venue to have a splendid steak! It is definitely a place for a special dinner with important people in your life. Absolutely memorable. I will be back for special occasions.
Great food as always. Classic!
Fabulous restaurant. Always the best in Vancouver. The waiter, Chad was especially professional.
Food took almost an hour to come and atmosphere was noisy and unbearable due to a loud party constantly cursing and yelling.
So it was my first visit in probably 25 years we always went when I was a kid with the family but this was the first re visit since I would say the early 80's and I wanted to take my sweetie to an original Vancouver icon. I hoped it would be what I remembered it as.
And it was.
Our server Karen was outstanding,entertaining and answered all our questions from wine pairings to questions about the ingredients in specific dishes and just genuinely made our evening so enjoyable. Her table side service was impeccable ....cant say enough about her.
The only disappointment for me was being seated upstairs rather than in the more lively area downstairs where you are more in on the action. It was kinda dark and gloomy upstairs for a couple with nothing really to look at. Would love to come back but would want to sit downstairs. Thank you Karen !
I had a New York Strip Loin steak. I hate to say it but it reminded me of Mr. Mike's steakhouse of yore. The steak was thin, tough and sinewy. I didn't finish it. You might want to try Costco to source your steaks. Their strip loins are much better and more tender.
I love hys. Plain and simple. It just always delivers. Except this time. Karen our server was amazing and warm and smart. She remembers our tastes and preferences always.
The food just missed this time. It was kind of meh. In fairness, Karen offered to have a new steak made for me but I declined. The filet didn’t look or taste as good as it normally does. Neither did the peppercorn sauce. Or the fries! And weirdly neither did the key lime pie. The oysters and cheese bread were perfect.
But the ambience and the evening and of course Karen was lovely.
We’ll be back - but not till the end of the summer for an occasion. It was probably a one-off.
Best food and service in town
