Hy's Steak House - Toronto Ratings and Reviews
We were in the very back of the restaurant and service was unusually slow even though not busy. Waited 10 mins for cocktails then another 10 mins before waiter showed up for placing our order. Entrees showed up an hour after we sat down. Food was excellent but slow slow service sub par compared to the usual Hy s standards.
Excellent service by our waiter Dorian who, not only was adept in recommending some good wines, but did a great job in the table preparation of the caesar salad and bananas foster. Also, the pace of service was just right. The quality of food was great and the portion size was not too big. We also enjoyed the high vaulted ceilings and the woodwork on the flooring. The bar was expansive and a great place to enjoy a drink.
First time at Hy's and certainly won't be my last experience there. My wife and I loved the food from the Caesar salad to start, all the way through to the dessert... every bite (and every sip) was incredible! The ambience really makes this place special... you can't help but feel you are dining in a part of Toronto's history. The staff were great, very helpful and accommodating to our requests to make our meals just right for us. Can't recommend this place enough. 5 stars and worth every dollar!
I had an absolutely phenomenal experience at Hy's Steak House! The service was impeccable and the staff was helpful, welcoming and made my experience truly memorable. The steak and lobster dish was amazing and the table-side Caesar salad added to the experience. In addition, the pistachio crème brulee was the best I've ever had! The dining area is beautiful and the large fireplace added to the ambience and elegance of the seating area. I had gone for a birthday celebration, and the staff ensured that my birthday experience was as phenomenal as possible, as they even put a candle in my dessert and piped the words "Happy Birthday" in chocolate without me even asking them to. I would definitely go again and though it is on the more expensive side, it is definitely worth it for a special occasion or outing!!
Must compliment our server my date has sensitive food allergies and not only was our server accommodating he was aware and also suffered from some of the same sensitivities.
The food was prepared perfectly and was also delicious.
I believe his name was Kevin, regardless he went above the call. With the rise of food allergies no matter how severe other restaurants can take a lesson from the exceptional service and sensitivity Hy's staff has shown.
As always the food and service was excellent. Steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and the service was top notch. I wouldn't expect anything less. I found it a tad pricey and I think the prices might have gone up. But I still would go back again. Great job all around.
The restaurant is beautiful and the service is impeccable, the food however is very disappointing. The Caesar salad was fantastic but the cheese toast was bland and plain. We have the New York and the steak Neptune with a New York. Both steaks were tasteless and barely warm, my roasted potatoes were ice cold and the mashed potatoes were cold, plain white potatoes. The Keg has better steaks for a third of the price, very disappointing, I would not return.
Took my boyfriend here for his birthday, the ambience and design of the restaurant is really nice and we were seated in a romantic booth. Upon arrival, the hostest greated us and took our coats & our waiter was always present and friendly. I ordered 2 apps as my meal, ahi tuna & smoked salmon - the ahi tuna was not the best and the smoked salmon was good. My boyfriend got steak and lobster and he said the steak was very flavourful and the lobster with the melted butter was tasty. We also got the garlic cheese toast - nothing amazing, just texas toast with marble cheese melted on it pretty much. Overall the experience was nice and I would go back for another special occasion - they really make you feel "special" here.
Our waiter Alkan was amazing. We have been to Hy's several times but this was the best experience by far. I think the only negative was the steak tar tar. I did not have it but one of group had it and compared it to other nice restaurants and found it over spice. Our steaks were perfectly prepared just as we asked and we all had different orders. The dressing on the salads was delicious and not heavy handed. We were there for nearly 4 hours, not because of the service but because we totally forgot about time. We were disappointed about looking up wines on an iPad, but I guess that progress. Thanks Hy's for a fantastic evening.
The ambiance and furnishings were beautiful. Was to be served New England clam chowder (the special) but received Boston clam chowder. Did not correct the waiter. The prices have escalated to the point there isn't a chance we could afford to bring guests and family to this restaurant. The guest we did bring was extremely uncomfortable ordering since the prices were extremely high.
I recently took my family to Hy's new Toronto location to see how it stacks up to the old classic, and I can say it didn't disappoint! Although it is clearly an upgrade, they have done an excellent job of staying with a traditional feel to create the classic ambiance you would expect from a high end steak house.
As far as price, well if you've already decided to go to Hy's for dinner/lunch, you've already explored the extensive menu online and shouldn't be surprised at the prices since you are in a top steak house in a metropolitan city. Although, I should add, the extensive wine list has offerings for all budgets, so no need to shy away from a bottle or two.
Our appetizers were escargots and pan seared scallops which were amazing - perfectly cooked (I am not a fan of gelatinous scallops) seared but not overcooked. The ladies in the group shared the Chateaubriand for two served with Bearnaise and ample vegetables, which they said was delicious and cooked as requested. I had the striploin with frites which was great, tasty and cooked exactly as I requested, but hey, if you can't get that right you are out of business! My son with a somewhat bigger appetite than mine (or at least he can get away with it) went for the 22 oz Porterhouse which he easily finished, we also ordered some sides and thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal!
We didn't have much room for anything else, but felt the need to try their famous cheesecake, which is delicious followed by a snifter to settle everything down - the service was friendly and attentive, great meal, great restaurant, great evening!

I was really pumped to go to Hy's after the reviews and it was for my 25th birthday. A good steak is how i prefer to celebrate my birthday. The price was fair, the service was great. But they put our family table besides a room full of loud business men celebrating. We could hardly hear each other. The steak wasn't the greatest, for a steakhouse i expected something much more. I had the beef wellington and it was overcooked.
For a person who really enjoys that cut of meat i wouldn't tell a friend to go, i would rather go to Jacobs or Harbour Sixty which are both amazing.
Great food, outstanding service and ambiance. This was my first time in this restaurant although I know almost all the restaurants in the downtown I never noticed this great restaurant inside the large office building. Looking forward to another visit in the new year with more friends.
