  • "This is a favorite restaurant. Despite some issues with seating last time we were in, Hugo's took care of us. We will continue to return."

  • "I went here for my moms birthday and did my reservation through Open Table. I asked them to please help make her birthday special and gave them her name... they did! She was SO shocked when they told her happy birthday and called her by her name... it's nice to know that they cared enough to help out! FYI: there are items that they have that are not on the menu- tuna tare tare is to die for! They also have clams casino if that's your thing! Also... this was, without a doubt, the best steak I ever ate. AMAZING. (try the pear martini!)"

  • "The food is always prepared well, and never a disappointment , we had octopus for an appetizer and it was excellent. The tuna, sushi grade was to die for. Service, you could not ask for anything better. Definitely one of my go to spots."

  • "Hugo's soups and salads are very good and still a good deal at $2. My crab cake was big and tasty, and my husband's fish taco was also very good. The front room was full, so we asked to be seated in a booth in the back and it was nice and quiet for visiting."

  • "There were 3 of us celebrating a birthday. We sat at a very comfortable booth and had shrimp cocktail, firecracker shrimp and crab cake appetizers. All were excellent. The crab cake was the best we have ever tasted. The porterhouse steak and the fish were also excellent."

  • "Food was delicious. Will go back. Good for a special occasion."

  • "We were a party of 6, I felt very cramped at our table. When I would scoot my chair, I would hit the person at the table behind me. I also could hear people's conversations from 3 other tables. A little more space would be nice. The food was absolutely delicious, We ordered 4 different seafood items and 2 steaks, the steaks were cooked perfectly and the seafood was fresh and light tasting. Will not dine here often, as was quite pricey. I would dine here for a special occasion."

  • "Bruschetta very hard and chewy. Mussels a disappointment - big portion and very tasty in a great sauce but these mussels were among the smallest I have ever seen - Size about like a navy bean or slightly larger. The Australian lobster was fantastic, albeit a bit tough (overcooked?).....would order this again and again. Have eaten their frog legs many times and would recommend you try them (breaded or sauteed)"

  • "Love eating at Hugo's. We have always had good experiences with the service and attention to detail. I would recommend Hugo's to anyone. Love the opportunity to use Open Table."

  • "Service was great, I felt food though was mediocre. I guess I was just expecting, for the price paid for the food, that there would be care taken how food was cooked. One person in our party orders a hamburger med/well. The hamburger was completely pink in the center, we then sent it back and came back the same way. I had ordered a side of king crab legs. Last year we had eaten at Hugo's frog bar in Chicago. The crab legs were so well cooked it literally melted in my mouth. This time, the crab legs were cold and rubbery and the butter sauce was cool. I don't know if we will ever go back to this restaurant which was located in Naperville . Although, ther place was busy.... Just to say they need to work on quality of food."

  • "Hugo;s is one of those restaurants that you should make a reservation for - we went on a Wednesday night and the place was hopping both at the bar and in the restaurant. Service is as always outstanding, food is great and our waiter just fun. A perfect blend. Noise level is energetic."

  • "My family went out for my B-day on a Sunday. Restaurant was not too crowded or noisy. Waitress was very attentive and food was great. Even my teenage children ate well especially the desert. Careful desert portions are large."

  • "We love this gem in Naperville. The ambiance is to our liking. The service is great and the food even better. We have been here many times and are never disappointed. The outdoor patio is lovely in the summer. Definitely recommend. It's a bit pricey so that's good to know ahead of time."

  • "Anyone who hasn't been downtown Naperville to dine or just amble around is truly missing out. Hugo's is definitely one reason we go downtown to dine, and on Friday night, they did not disappoint. We had reservations, got right in and were lucky enough to get a booth. My husband's cocktail, a Manhattan, was excellent; my cocktail, a Chocolate Martini, not so much. It was ok, but it won't go on my favorite list. Our food was excellent, though. Because it was Friday during lent, we had fish. My husband had the tuna and it was wonderful. My whitefish was delectable and the accompanying mashed potatoes were delicious and more than I could eat. The food presentation was lovely, and the server was friendly and attentive. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "My wife and I went out to celebrate my birthday. We arrived on time and was glad we made reservations as there was already an hour wait at 5:30 PM on Saturday. We were seated in the back of the restaurant which would have been fine except for 2 things. 1. We were seated directly in front of a door that leads out to the patio that would not close properly. 2. There was a large group next to us that had a baby that what seemed to be most of the evening. We should have never been seated in front of that door. We froze the entire night. It should have been fixed so that if could close properly. Having kids myself, I know that babies cry, and should not be brought to dinner there. Get a baby sitter!"

  • "Best crab cakes I have ever had!! Wife had stuffed shrimp with crab and it was also fantastic. I had the scallops and they were perfect with the risotto. Great meal!,"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We love going to Hugo's, we love the food and ambiance. This time we were sat at a table that we had to sit across from each other, but it was an awkward distance, too far away. Plus we were so close to the next tables, we could have joined their conversations. The waiter was either new or not very good, we didn't get the show of meat and specials for the night. We'll be back because we love the food, but felt slighted on this visit with the awkward table."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Food was incredible, not overly priced but restaurant was very busy and for some reason our waiter was not as quick as others and people who were seated after us had drinks and orders taken and dinner before us. Waiter seems very busy and a bit flustered. Usually that is not the case here. Waited half hour for drink order and was about to say something when waiter came over and apologized. Great food and good value made up for the slow service. I think it was just an off night for this one guy but someone should have noticed and assisted him."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "It's been a while since we visited Hugo's and now I remember why. Nothing inviting about our greet as we entered by the hosts. Offered reservation info and we were promptly escorted through the restaurant to the back room in a cramped corner table with chairs stacked behind us and hardly enough room to get in and out. Completely unacceptable for a dinner we expected to spend $200+ on. Expressed our disappointment and then made to wait in the bar area. About 30 minutes later seated at a booth. Timing of our courses was a mess and my Chicago Cut steak was ordered medium-rare and arrived nearly well done. No sincerity in the apology from management nor any considerations on the bill; nothing. Won't be going back any time soon."

  • "Daughter works in NY Manhattan and knows good dinning. She loved it."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Although my overall experience was good, and the food is very good indeed, I was a little disappointed how my reservation request has been handled by Hugo's: I made my reservation for a lunch with my three friends two days in advance and specifically asked for a table either at the winder or at the wall and definitely not in the middle of the room. Of course, I know that such requests not always can be accommodated, but that we got tried to be placed at a middle-of-the-room table although two days earlier I had asked not to and although there were two tables open I found was not ok. Only when I pointed out that my reservation asked for a window or wall table we got the window table... As said a little disappointing and unnecessary!"

  • "I took my son out to Hugo's for his birthday and after waiting for a long time, the entrees arrived. On initial inspection the scallops i ordered appeared to be almost burnt. Upon cutting into the scallop it was raw inside. I thought it might be just the one scallop so I cut into a second and it was the same as the first. I mentioned this to my son and he said his salmon was way overcooked. When the waiter arrived we sent the food back. The manager arrived and said the entrees would be comped, which they were. We ended up going home hungry not wanting to chance another product from the kitchen. The interesting thing is that this took place on a Monday evening and the restaurant was not busy."

  • "When in Naperville, I always go to Hugo's. Had a plate of fresh Montauks and the petite filet, perfectly prepared and served. No need to say more."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We dined at Hugo's on a Friday. We had reservations through OpenTable for 8:00p and weren't seated until 8:25p. I ordered a filet minigion medium. The dish came out with the plate warmer than the food and the filet undercooked. Then as I ate, the filet seemed to be another cut of beef served like a filet. Then I became ill for the next two day. So....not the best experience."
