Seafood
"Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House opened its doors in February 1997 in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, next to sister restaurant Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse. Over 20 years after owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo set out to open the city's finest seafood restaurant, Hugo's continues to be the destination for premier east and west coast oysters, crudos, frog legs, lobster and seasonal fish and shellfish, in addition to Gibsons Prime Angus and Gibsons Grassfed Australian steaks. An extensive wine list, classic cocktail list and selection of impressive signature desserts accompany the menu of fresh seafood, steaks and chops. Hugo's seafood is delivered daily, earning The New York Times to praise "the fish could only be fresher if it swam in by itself.""

    We come here frequently and I still don’t think we eat here enough. Let’s just say…their crab cakes and scallops are better than most of the places that “specialize” in those things. Their bookbinder soup, I eat at least one bowl every time I go and yesterday I had two of them. We love the management and staff…they are friendly, personable and who doesn’t like being remembered as a frequent patron? Their management goes from table to table and makes you feel like you’re eating in their home dining area. We have family events here and have brought friends with us. Probably one of the consistently phenomenal dining my wife and I have. I’d even go there to eat even if not gambling. It’s that good. Don’t take my word for it, see it for yourself.

    Food and service were outstanding. Very friendly staff. Prices compare favorably to other high end steak and seafood restaurants. It’s great to have a pre show dinner here
