Hy's Steakhouse - Winnipeg Ratings and Reviews

I had been here once before, after wandering through Winnipeg for the first time ever, and even though it is a reservation kind of place, they have seating for people without at the bar and in the front. I was so impressed with the quality and service that a year later, I brought my girlfriend there to celebrate her birthday. This time we made a reservation and planned it out, the service was again impressive, the staff was knowledgeable, it is however a very formal dining atmosphere, I don't think it's possible to be overdressed here. The cocktails are well made, and the food is simply incredible, personally I'd recommend the shrimp. Overall I'd give it a five star rating, but keep in mind this is a place you will spend a lot at.

The food was very good, but the price was astronomical. Very, very, very expensive for what you get. There a several other restaurants in Winnipeg where you can get a high quality meal like that for considerably less.
Also they took the super tall Apple pie off the menu a few years ago, that is disappointing. I was looking forward to that tall pie!

My friend and I had a lovely time at Hys to celebrate our birthdays for the second time thanks to the manager, Jason. Our server Andrew was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu selection. The food was splendid this time. Our steaks were moist and flavourful and the steamed broccoli was delicious. Again we really enjoyed our experience there, especially the meal!

You get pampered here, with attentive service at every opportunity. Still, we had two issues with the service. One was that extra cost options and menu choices were suggested so many times and the atmosphere makes it seem uncouth to ask for the cost every time. The second was that an item that we agreed to was substituted for something else. This was quickly corrected once we realized, and our bill was adjusted to remove the incorrect one, the correct one, and another item! So I can't really count that as a negative.
The food was high quality and prepared well with the exception of a consistent high use of salt throughout the dishes. As promised, the steak was probably the best I've had anywhere. The "famous" cheese toast was the only let down, as the cheese reminded us of Velveeta and you wouldn't believe how much of it was poured on the toast.
I'm sure with a different appetizer and with maybe a request to cut the salt back, the food would have left a first rate impression in quality and preparation.
We won't be going back mainly due to the prices of the menu items. Most of the items were about a third more expensive than I expected at a quality restaurant, and to get a full meal (i.e. a vegetable other than a potato, and some bread before the main course) it will then cost you significantly more.
I believe that Hy's repeat customers are the "high rollers", and the menu and service are attuned to this clientele. So we won't be back until we come into significant money. But we appreciated that during our visit, we weren't made to feel second class at any point as it was likely apparent that we were not accustomed to Hy's (both the pampering and the costs).

While service & ambiance were outstanding, what I came for was good steak. Going with the "steak special" was my mistake. Originally was set on the beef wellington, but after hearing the raving reviews on their meat from the waiter (which he said all their meat was from the top 20 percent graded) I went with the New York strip in rare. Tough to say the least ( my wife had the same in medium well, same not so tender result.) I have family in the food industry & have had some pretty amazing steaks from strip loin to rib-eye to filet. Fall apart tender @ almost any doneness. Again, this could have been the the wrong choice, but was far from the steak I expected.

Steaks were amazing. had the Filet Mignon and it never dissapoints. drinks were done to perfection. great scotch and margaritas. noticed no more veggies with the Steaks and no more garlic toast with the meal. prices went up and we now get less. will still go as we love the top notch service and excellent food.

Parking is tough. If you look by the front of the building (not where the entrance is) there is valet parking for 7.00 - USE it, it costs 5.00 for parking on your own. Everything about this place is top notch.Food was tremendous. All the staff was amazing, they all work together to make sure you are taken care of. Other places you do not see this type of team work. Be prepared for a pricey menu though. Just expect to pay 70 to 110 per person. Not that its not worth it just so you are not caught off guard. Last time I was at Hy's was when it was at there other down town location. So it was nice to see after years their reputation is still intact.

The food was very bland - I ordered the arctic char, rice pilaf, and vegetables. The server said that the cheese toast was something people came from all around to eat...it was weird and terrible!
I had a good sized meal but my friend's lunch was quite small - spinach salad with baby shrimp as an add on. As a result, we went to another restaurant so she could eat another lunch.
Overall, it was quite disappointing as we were celebrating our birthdays that day. Fortunately, we went to 529 for dinner which made up for our expensive and mediocre lunch at Hys.

Best Caesar salad I've had in ages. Steaks were done precisely and the wine list is extensive...albeit a little expensive.
Service was fantastic and we loved that some of the dishes were made right at our table for us. This added to the overall experience for sure. If you are looking for a special restaurant for a special occasion, Hy's would be a good choice.

I used this system to make a reservation at Hy's for customers that were in visiting Winnipeg. When the Owner, President and my VP showed up with customers that evening, they were told that there wasn't a reservation made.
I was very disappointed to find out that this had happened and will be following up with the Manager next week. We bring customers in every week and have been working with the Fairmont recently so Hy's is a convenient dinner location. This was very embarrassing and if we are going to consider Hy's or using this system again, I need to understand why this happened.

I would have to say that the staff was great. For the most part, the appetizer, the drinks and the ambiance were great. I do feel that, from my perspective only, I have had better steaks at far less price. My colleague's meals were good. I heard no issues. Perhaps it was just an unlucky draw on my cut of meat.

For an top-end restaurant I found the food (with some notable exceptions) to be unremarkable. One of the party had a steak which was sinewy, the lamb was unremarkable and the service was not as personable or informative as I have come to expect from top end restaurants. I did however enjoy the desert (bananas flambeed at the table) but this was not enough to make me enthusiastic about returning.

Our dining experience at Hy's was excellent as usual. The staff was attentive but did gather a bit too often chatting at the waiters station that was adjacent to our table. The bantering did take away from the evening a bit. My expectations at a 5 star restaurant are much higher than they would be if we had chosen to dine at the Keg.

Terrific table service vastly overshadowed pedestrian veg. sides, and the merely acceptable, but wildly overpriced, entree. Lovely atmosphere and wonderful front-line staff. On balance a disappointing experience with regard to food, despite some real but inconsistent virtues (e.g., exquisite Caesar salad prepared and served with panache; chemistry-set tasting cheese toast of the roadhouse variety. ) Astonishing to see Hy's cheaping-out on its steak entrees, especially given the prices charged.

After hearing about this restaurant from friends for many years, my wife and I decided to indulge in a special dining experience on a recent trip to Winnipeg. We were disappointed. My beef Wellington portion size was underwhelming to say the least and my potatoe dish was flavorless and over done.
The cheese toast appetizer was the standout dish of the evening. So delicious. We should have called it a night after that.
The ambiance is nice but the server and the hostess we both found to be cold and unfriendly.
This was not the dining experience we had heard about and wish we would have chosen another restaurant for our special night out.

Hy's made our special occasion extra special. It was a wonderful dining experience based on a great location, top notch service and exquisite food. Highly recommended to anyone who will want for nothing in enjoying a great evening out.

We came for lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday. (Our first visit to Hy's Steakhouse) and we did try the steak but was not impressed with the quality for the price. The service was exceptional!!! The steak was very palatable but with the price I thought it should have melted in my mouth. I have made steak at home that has been more tender and tasted just as good. Also a little disappointed that salad didn't come with the Steak lunch.

Good Customer Service and dining experience. The fact that I was welcomed and recognized that I had a reservation was a good impression. The table was ready and for the amount of people that we had. The waiter assigned to our table was prompt and directed well taking of the orders. The waiter did provide the selection of the day and we were able to order was we wanted. My customer was delighted and that was the purpose of the lunch, to have a good working lunch time and productive.

We certainly don't object to paying exorbitant prices for a meal when exceptional. Hy's was NOT that. Three steaks with inconsistent cook. One fish dinner with a horrible sauce which overpowered the dish. Definitely not worth it.

This is the most amazing place we've ever been into! It's so memorable because my girlfriend and I celebrated our 5th anniversary here and she proposed to me here as well! Our dessert was free as requested when I did the online reservation which was absolutely incredible by the way. Overall, great food, great ambience, great service! You get what you really pay for. Definitely will come back! ❤️
