The cheese toast there, is indeed their house signature. Cannot find any other places better than HY. It is dangerously addictive. Last time I went there, service was ok. Server recommended the cheese toast, which I enjoyed a lot. He also made couple other recommendation. However, I felt like sometimes the server wasn't really attentive. Even though he was just...

Right in the heart of the city beats this classic restaurant. It is plush and friendly with highly attentive staff. The menu leans strongly to steak with a seafood a close second. The steaks big and cooked to perfection. You will not leave hungry.

Went here with a client last month. The bar area quite full and buzzing on a busy Thursday evening. Took a few minutes to acknowledge my presence and bring me a cocktail. We were escorted to our table after a few minutes and were greeted by our friendly waiter. Had the 20 ounce rib steak with a scallop starter. Scallops... More

Went to Hy's for the first time with a business associate. Had the Caesar salad, cheese bread and a t bone steak with fries. The salad was very oily, the cheese bread very greasy and the t bone so fatty I only could consume 1/3. I was disappointed. To make matters worse something disagreed with me so baldly I found...

Went for a family member birthday dinner. Very 'old world' décor. Waiter was excellent, most people's meat and sauces were very good. Vegetables - even the baked potato was under cooked. Desert was nothing special (cheesecake). Prices were extremely high on both wine and food. Will not be returning any time soon!

From the moment we walked in, everything was excellent. The ambiance is very traditional yet sleek and sexy. Dark wood, great lighting, books and wine line the walls. The service was charming and helpful without being overbearing. The wine list is great for your steak, heavy on excellent red choices. White selection leaves much to be desired, but that's forgivable... More

Visited from Victoria just to go to this restaurant. Put it off for years. Was afraid of the dress code, but being Vancouver it was non-existent. People dressed from jeans/t-shirt to suits. Wait staff are attentive and food was AMAZING. Entree prices were reasonable considering their quality and the restaurant location. Will check out sister restaurant GOTHAM next time in... More

I went early on a Wednesday night. The ambiance was great & my server Max was awesome. Like everyone else says, the cheese bread is fantastic. I had a glass of Merlot and a Rib Eye. The wine was perfect; my steak however was a little under done for medium rare - it was more on the rare side. It... More

Hy's has been Canada's first name in steaks since opening in 1955. For nearly 60 years the Hy's name has meant the finest Canadian beef and impeccable service in a warm, relaxed atmosphere. Hy's is Canada's premiere steakhouse. We are Hy's, and proud of it, since 1955.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
