    John S. was our waiter. He made our lunch a very pleasant experience. The special of the day was white fish with a beet salad. Very fresh and tasty. My friend and I will return!

    I love thier fish tacos when I have been there for lunch and they are not on the dinner menu so asked our waiter if I could get them as they are my fav! They already took the tuna salad which was awesome off the menu years ago so miss my favorite items. I was told that I could not have fish tacos for dinner so ordered the tuna poke - which was fine but not really what I wanted. The service is top notch here (to match the prices) and I think my visits to Hugo's are coming to an end. To little reason to go here when there are so many other choices when I cannot order what I want.

    The food was never better. We have been to this restaurant several times over the last few years. The menu is basically the same but the cuts of meat and fish were fantastic. The prices seemed to be higher than what we recall but still a very nice dinner.

    My wife and I dined at Hugo's as an impromtu date night. I have been to their Chicago establishment before and enjoyed it. The Naperville location is a little cozier and had a less 'snobbish' feel, so I appreciated that. We had made reservations a couple of days prior and we were seated immediately upon checking in despite it being fairly crowed - that was VERY appreciated since my wife is 7 months pregnant and standing around at the bar waiting for our table wouldn't have been pleasant. The service was quick and efficient, no complaints there. My only complaint would be that Open Table has Hugo's listed as a $$$ restaurant and I would argue that it should definitely be $$$$. I've dined at Morton's which is a $$$$ and its equivalent.

    We enjoyed the book binders soup, which is very flavorful though light on seafood. The tuna and the and the sea bass were prepared very well; tender and fresh. The flourless chocolate cake was a nice finish. Very rich - a couple bites with a cup of coffee was plenty.

    Went with 3 girlfriends for dinner and drinks. Drinks were delicious, especially if they were unusual. Dinner was amazing. Each of us felt like we had the best dish. Shrimp DeJonge, filet mignonette, seared scallops. Best value: $3 lobster bisque! Skip: baked sweet potato in maple butter (had little flavor, surprisingly). Fun place yet romantic in its own way.

    Once again a pleasurable experience we ordered the Dover Sole and Sea Bass and they were outstanding. We ordered a Pinot Grigio to go with the fish and that enhanced the meal. Finally, the wait staff was attentive, courteous and seemed very us to special requests that he fulfilled without question. Bottom line a great experience.

    The service was great as always. I had the Dover Sole which was excellent and my buddy had great filet. The tuna and calamari apps. were great. The loaded wedges were so/so, skimpy on the bacon and the tomatoes. We had the crab mac and cheese side with our entree's which had no crab and tasted like paste for $16 which they so kindly took off the bill. Overall a very good meal with great service.

    You can't beat a lunch of their clam chowder, wedge lettuce salad and a slider with home made fries /chips. The service is friendly and efficient but not rushed. The food is tasty and portioned nicely. You have to request the bread and both the French and raisin bread are delicious.

    Once there and a friend told me this was actually part of the Gibson's family, it all made sense. Friendly service and wonderful food. I also liked that we were not pushed out the door when we finished (if they were more full, that may have understandably changed). I was only halfway through my meal when I told my wife "we are definitely coming back here." Only negative was that we didn't realize there was valet service until we walked up - that one's on me!

    My wife's lobster tail was overcooked. Sent it back for another and it too was overcooked. I believe the charring was not really necessary, because it left the meat tougher. I guess that is the way they cook it so she will not get another. My Chicago Cut ribeye was excellent though and quite tasty. We will go back, just not order the lobster tail.

  • Best seafood in Naperville
    PapaK
    Dined on 9/18/2014
    This was our first time at Hugo's and I can honest say it served the best seafood in Naperville. We started with their famous "sauted frog legs", some escargo, huge fresh crab cakes and 1/2 dozen tasty oysters. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, which was served in a complimentary pea sauce, and my wife had the Crab Stuffed Shrimp. Both were unbelievable and we just had to share. Desert was some type of chocolate ice cream creation that really topped us off. The server really knew his stuff and romantically described each meal (lots of adjectives that made our mouth water), was quick but not too fast with the help of the busers. Hugo's will now be another favorite spot for us. Highly recommend it. Oh, FYI the Gibson steaks looked great too.

    Hugo's is one of our favorite Naperville restaurants. I usually order the filet medallions, which are great, but this time I decided to try something different and had the 12 oz. Ranch Pork Chop with sweet potato puree and applesauce. It was delicious! Their pear blossom drink is truly the best drink I've ever had anywhere. We enjoyed the outdoor patio, knowing the nice weather days will not last forever! As usual, the service was excellent.

    As usual, our experience this time was outstanding! By far the best Steak and Seafood restaurant in the Western Suburbs of Chicago. We had a business dinner for 6 people, Holland Dover Sole exquisite, Bone in Filet excellent and cooked perfectly. Consistent quality. Nick Massa the GM could not do more to provide a great experience. Hugo's is our go to place when we want to impress and make sure that things are done right!! Michael Colucci CEO IDILUS LLC

    We're never disappointed at Hugo's Naperville. Tom was excellent in seeing that our needs were met and the manager dropped by to check on and welcome us. My husband had the frog legs and they were delish tho the rice could be warmer. The dessert is one to be sure to try... chocolate flourless cake with serving of ice cream. Absolutely amazingly wonderful, yum, yum. Give it a try. We look forward to our next visit.

    Crab legs are always spectacular and the key reason we love to go to Hugos. Waiter service this evening was very timely and attentive. The delay in getting seated though is a little disappointing, especially when you travel 45 minutes. You should not have to wait 45 minutes for a table that you reserved.

    We go to Hugo's in Naperville at least twice a month and this was the first time it did not live up to our normal expectations. We had to remind our server about our salads before they were brought out and the Linguini with White Wine Clam sauce was not a very good dish. Having said that, everyone has an off night and this will not stop us from our frequent visits to a great restaurant.
