Defining the steakhouse experience in Canada for 65 years and counting, Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar needs no introduction.
They are an institution that sets the bar for quality steaks, serving diners the finest cuts, cured and flavoured to perfection, along with the freshest ingredients.

If you want one that leaves an impression, go for one of their prime steaks, which are aged for 28 days or more. If we had to choose, we’d go for the melt-in-your mouth 10z New York Steak or 22oz Porterhouse.
Pair it off with a glass of Giusti Merlot and you’re set for a spectacular meal!
For dessert, we recommend the Belgian Chocolate Bourbon Cake, which is in a word, divine!

There is a range of separate seating catered to a mix of small parties, game crowds and amorous diners.

An excellent spot for a date, family gatherings or even a group of friends that want to hang out in class.
It’s very easy to get spoiled for choice at The Victor.
Not only are they famous for their delicious signature steaks like the Rib Cap Steak and Wagyu Striploin, but they also specialize in freshly caught seafood, and their sushi and raw tower bar is an experience worth having.
Chambar is one of those places you can go to and find everything just right. Their food is fabulous, and their plating is impeccable. The serving staff are attentive, friendly, and go the extra mile to make you feel at home.

The Grilled Albacore Tuna is another dish we love here, and for dessert, we never say no to their decadent Chocolat Fumé.
All Noms Magazine’s “best” lists are created using multiple factors and signals to help readers find the best restaurants, things to do, and places to stay at. Some of these factors and signs include personal experiences, correspondence with locals, and compiling experiences from review sites.
Each list is also created to be balanced (in terms of price, cuisine type, ambiance, and more) as possible. This means that the lists are not specifically created in ranking order. You should be comfortable picking from any of the spots on the list and generally have a good time. But of course, YMMV (your mileage may vary) and everyone may have different experiences/palates.
