Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House - Naperville
Naperville gemDowntown Naperville has many fine restaurants and this is one of the best. I have always enjoyed the Chicago River North location and this one is even better. Easy parking, roomy, comfortable atmosphere, and the same great menu! We sat outside near the fountain and truly enjoyed our experience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHugo's never disappoints.Hugo's never disappoints. Their quality of food and service is consistently the best and keeps us coming back time and again.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Hugo'sGreat food, good wine, best friends equals a fabulous time. Calamari was cooked to perfection. Blackened halibut melted in my mouth along with the steamed spinach in beurre blanc. 8 women for lunch could be challenging for the wait staff but we were shepherded gracefully through our meal with good humor. We do this once a year and wouldn't think of choosing another venue.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimerThe food was awesome! The place was full and it was hard to hear all the conversation at our table of six at times (business dinner). Should consider some professional accousitc evaluation.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are regulars at Hugo's.We are regulars at Hugo's. Overall a great place with great food.
The dessert menu is limited and could use an update.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMConstantly Wonderful!Always great food and they have the best staff we have ever seen. It is a warm and welcoming environment.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent!My boyfriend and i went on a saturday night for our anniversary. Luckily i had a reservation as the place was very busy. We were stuck in the middle of the resturaunt at a little table. The resturaunt was very open and loud which made us feel a little uncomfortable at first. I noticed the only closed in romantic booth in the whole resturaunt near us with a couple getting ready to leave. My boyfriend asked the waiter if we could switch to that table. He mentioned that several parties usually wait in line for that table. A moment later a manager grabbed our menus and lead is straight to the table. We were very excited. The food and service was outstanding and quick. We love seafood and were impressed. we will def be back!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe sea bass was excellent.The sea bass was excellent. It was moist and flakey with great complimentary sides, enhancing all of the flavor.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHugo's is Always a Great MealHugo's is a great pick for the special event night. Great food, great service, in downtown Naperville. Great combination.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for an anniversary dinner!Had oysters, tuna, and soft shell crab and it was all excellent. Will definitely be back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service!Expemplary service! Food was good but not fantastic. Sashimi grade tuna wasn't quite cooked right and needed more flavor (despite spicy crust, it wasn't seared enough or maybe hot enough?)
Two of the Chicago cut steaks were very good but third was a little grisly, hard to chew. That shouldn't happen for price paid.
Cocktail was very good and New England clam chowder is delicious!
Our waiter was wonderful and very attentive.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHugos has a great vibe. TheHugos has a great vibe. The food is straightforward steakhouse.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe take visitors thereGreat food, nice location. I just wish they'd put acoustic tiles in the ceiling to drop the noise level. Even on a Thursday night in the back, it was hard to hear our guests. I'm still eating my leftovers of chocolate mousse pie. YUM!!!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch with 3 FAV moms+BabyI was anxious to get an outdoor patio area and understood it was not "reserveable". I even got there exceptionally earlier to arrange for the possibility of maybe perhaps getting a spot in the cool patio and everyone at Hugo's was so nice and encouraging and made it happen. They let me sit there for 45 minutes to wait for all my moms + baby to join me and didn't harass me. Our wait staff, Josh was exceptionally attentive to all of us as they all eventually joined me at staggering times. They made sure we were comfortable, water was refilled, drinks replenished, reviewed the speciality, and the food was absolutely to die for. So tasty. I have been here before and will definitely be back. THANK you for being there and having this serve. LS5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a spectacular dinner.Had a spectacular dinner. Food was great as always and the waiter was amazing in his recommendations and attentiveness, espcially since he was serving a table of 12 and another table of 4 at the same time he was waiting on us.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the MidwestBonne is the best server in the midwest.

Craig was our server and was extremely polite and knowledgable. The wine list wasn't bad, there could have been a lot better options but adequate. They're New England Clam Chowder was fabulous and the frog legs were out of this world. Ambience was very nice, could be a nice romantic dinner spot or some where to have a nice dinner with friends. Definitely be back again!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Mothers DayWe had a great Mothers Day Brunch here. Even our 17 month old and 5 year old hung in and enjoyed.

Service and food always superb.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCollege graduation celebrationI am a big fan of Gibson's but had only been at the Frogs location downtown
Was worried the suburban location may not be as lively and as high quality. Well my worries were for not as our experience was awesome and the food was top self. Seafood was some of the best we have had in any part of the country. Steaks of course were the best you can find. Bar scene was jumping even after midnight.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is consistently good,Food is consistently good, along with knowledgeable and attentive service5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food with nice wineVery good food with nice wine and specialty drinks professionally served in an enjoyable atmosphere.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerWe can here for my Birthday dinner this past week. Though we live in Shorewood (south of Joliet) the trip is always worth the while. The food is always to perfection. My joy in life is a good piece of fish. I had the salmon. It was the best I ever had. My husband is a beef man. He had the WB (I think you called) It was cooked to perfection. He enjoyed it very. I am not a dessert eater but since it was my birthday I ordered your delicious cheese. It was certainly too much for me to eat so I bring the remainder home.
Our waiter was excellent He was very knowledge in everything we needed we wanted to know. He said "Happy Birthday" to me many times which was commendable.
We will continue to come back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday NightThe entire evening at Hugo's was fantastic. It was by far the best dining experience i've ever had! I look forward to my next visit.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThis restaurant is our go to..

I find it a predictably great place to go with a work colleagues. The food is tasty, the service attentive.
The only thing I would change is the way they acknowledge patrons' birthdays. I appreciate celebrating -- and in fact, my colleagues recently surprised me by mentioning to the staff that it was my birthday so I personally got this treatment. But I find it distracting that the staff all surround the table of the person celebrating and then chant some phrase like "Happy You, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday To You!" I must have been there on a popular day for birthdays because during the two hours I was there, this happened four times!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to Hugo's severalWe've been to Hugo's several times and even brought friends from the Philippines who are visiting to try our favorites there.
We got gift cards to dine there for New Year's Eve and to come back a couple more times. It was so worth it.
We can't wait for the warm weather so we can eat again at the beautiful patio.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated 2 birthdaysThoroughly enjoyed our dinner, as usual. Came to celebrate our 8 year old's birthday and my husband's 50th. Strange, though, they asked if we were celebrating anything when we were making the reservation and we told them of the 2 celebrations, and then they didn't do anything to acknowledge them. Which would be okay, but then why ask if we are celebrating anything, if you don't intend on doing anything about it (bring out a ice cream or cake for the person's birthday...). If you don't do anyting, then that is fine, but why ask?
Brought 2 people with us that have never been there before and they thoroughly enjoyed it. My family (husband and 2 daughters) have frequented Hugo's quite often in the past and love it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the place. Great foodLove the place. Great food and service. First place on my list to take friends when they are in town for a visit, am never disappointed.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAn outstanding dining experience.An outstanding dining experience. A higher noise level than I am comfortable with, but I'm old and really don't hear well.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDo NOT miss Hugo'sIt is difficult to find words descriptive enough to tell how wonderful our evening was at Hugo's. From phone calls from me to them, to their reminder call to me (we'll keep your birthday cake in the cooler and bring it out with candles!) to the hosts, to the buspersons, to our AMAZING waiter, Tom Alleghretti, they could not have been nicer to us. In fact, they have motivated me to be nicer to everyone I meet. The menu changes daily. We ate off of the left side (appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches). The food? Every bite a new treat for the senses. Do not MISS the filet slider, or the Tilapia slider, or the crab cake (no filler evident either visually or taste-wise) with the pink sauce, or the New England Clam Chowder. Don't miss ANYTHING!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectAlways consistantly delicious! Always wonderful, courteous service.

Yum.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AM5 stars!My first time experience here was AMAZING, and I will be back shortly. There was not one thing wrong with either our food or drinks. Our server, Joshua, was impeccable, very knowledgeable and you could tell he cared about what he was talking about. This has been one of my favorite restuarants that I've ever been to.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters were excellent. OurOysters were excellent. Our fish dishes were fresh and well prepared. Steaks at nearby tables looked great with that thin high-temp fine char that is hard to find. Very impressed by service. Busy place, but service still managed to stay on top of things very well. Managers were readily evident making sure all bases were covered too. Nice to know you can rely on decent service and food, I think that makes this higher end option well worth it compared to a more dicey experience for a little less money. Busy, active bar area.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHugo's is always solid --Hugo's is always solid -- a great place for a business lunch.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always love going to Hugo's.We always love going to Hugo's.
