Too much odor in the dining room due to table side flambe. The flambe for the next table to us was performed close to our table which prompted the server to say "don't worry the flames (2 ft. In height) won't reach you. I will never return to this dining environment and smelly clothes. This was so unexpected to 4be... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening and was told the earliest table would be available at 8:15 pm ( booking done on the internet and called on Wednesday morning and got the same story ). We arrived at 8;15 and there are so many empty tables! How was the food and wine: both good so no complaints and the price... More

This was my first time here but I will definitely be back. We started with the most amazing cheese bread. It was so good, we had to order a second round. As it was only 2 of us... it was pretty much a basket for each :) Our salads were great as well and the mains were done just perfectly.... More

Looking forward to a great steak dinner with my wife. What we got was very disappointing. The thinnest $50 New York steak I have ever been served. The prices were comparable to other steakhouses in Vancouver but I'm sorry to say this dinner was about as memorable as going to the Keg. Dropped $200 between the two of us and... More

My boyfriend and I decided to come here for our anniversary. We've heard really good things and heard how amazing the steaks were. We walked in and the restaurant definitely looks dated. We were seated at a corner booth, the waiter was friendly enough but not really. When I made the reservations, I had noted that it was our anniversary.... More

Absolutely a place to celebrate that special birthday occasion. We are a group of 20 family and friends, it is always a pleasure to be able to come back to this place after their Reno. Reservation is a must as they steadily gets filled on dinner time. I must admit they are pricey double the price of the Keg but... More

We had a delightful dinner with old friends at Hy's. The service was excellent as expected and we sat in a semi private area where there was room for 12 of us and it was quiet enough for conversation. They have a number of good choices on the menu from smaller portions to what I call "logging camp" sized steaks... More

This is one of those " if you have to ask, you can't afford it " moments. I am not a executive, rock star or big time lawyer but once in awhile I like to eat like one. So spending more than most people do on their truck payment for the month, I enjoyed a meal that I most likely... More

This is a long-time Vancouver steak spot with beautiful old-time ambiance. We ate in the recently opened upstairs bar. Ryan Shimo, the bar manager, made some excellent and creative cocktails and gave us recommendations on our dinner selections. Very knowledgeable on steak cuts and whiskey. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cheese bread appetizer sounds so simple, but it is sooo... 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.
