Hy's is centrally located in Vancouver and one you won't want to miss. This is fine dining in a historical building with the original open fire grill still in operation. Order the steak, what else. you will be very pleased with the food and more pleased with the service.

Had dinner here just a few days before Christmas and, despite the busy time, the service and the food were very good. The classic Caesar Salad made at the table and the prawn cocktail are from the 70's. My beef wellington was perfectly cooked as were all the steaks. The Bananas Foster flamed at the table was high on drama... More

The meal: i don't understand the cheese toast. Why do the servers push for people to order cheese toast? It's thick soft white bread with cheese. I could make that at home... Scallops appie was delicious - scallops were tender and flavorful. I realize this place is fancy, but three scallops for $20 is something I wouldn't repeat even if... More

Three couples went to Hy's on Hornby Street in Vancouver last Sunday - not an empty seat in the house - we had a very professional waiter John who was on top of his game throughout the entire meal. Some of us had fish and seafood entrees and were very pleased with our choice. Those that had the steaks were... More

Okay so this is a more upscale restaurant and it's also in the middle of downtown. The food is good, now when I say that, I've had better steaks on my BBQ at home it's fairly regular steaks, nothing extrodinary, not worth paying $50+ dollars a steak (not including sides). You will be paying for the name here if you... More

Decor of the 50's which is a rare thing nowadays. Waiters are excellent, know there stuff and make the salad in front of you. They also give you a recipe on how to prepare it.

My first visit to Hy's was in Calgary over thirty years ago. The place seems timeless, and that's a compliment. We were a party of six. Staff were all excellent, friendly, helpful and expert. Highlights for our group were the cheese toast, gin fizz and steak Diane. However, having said that, four of us had been to Hy's in Winnipeg... More

This place is a fave for old hockey players and older stock promoters. Wines are good and the steaks can be successfully ordered Chicago style, which is a rarity. The cheese bread is out of this world. Now that Van no longer has a Morton's there is only Hy's and Gothams. Both have their merits.

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.
