Our go to place when we are in the area. We were on our way to see Jeff Lynne's ELO, so this was a perfect place to eat.

Can’t beat Hugo’s for its service and consistently great food. Mark was our waiter and he is always friendly, attentive and exceptional service. The food is always great.

Cocktails were a great start. The tuna app was just meh but the crab cake and sea bass entrees were tasty. My husband said his ribeye had a bit more outside char than he liked, but it was cooked medium rare on the inside as he requested. Desserts were humongous. We were told the creme brûlée is on the smaller side so we ordered that. It was still huge for 4pp to share. Somehow we were able to polish it off, though! ☺️

Recently enjoyed a delicious meal at Hugo’s. We started with the amazing crab cake app. Tons of large lump crab with very little filler. The spicy pink mayo was a wonderful spicy compliment. For dinner I had the sea bass and hubby had the bone in filet and we shared sautéed spinach. All were prepared perfectly and tasted absolutely delicious!

The Assistant General Manager Marc Rafac was great! We started the evening with the casino not letting one of our Canadian personnel into the area because he did not bring his psssport. (Who brings a passport to a casino?). Luckily a nexus card was pulled! But Marc went out and made sure our party was together. Thank you Marc.

The food was great and the water was also perfect. We will be back!

SALTY!! The food was good but VERY salty. I’m sure they used MSG as well because my eyes were swollen the next morning and I drank a ton of water. ( And by the way I only had one half a glass of wine, so it wasn’t the wine.)I would not recommend this restaurant because there are so many healthier and better choices here in Chicago. Yuck.

We had a wonderful waiter - he was very attentive and thorough. Even though it is a steakhouse, we both ordered fish - whitefish and salmon - both were excellent. After dinner, we went out in the casino and won enough to pay for most of our meal - a great anniversary present!

Enjoyed a wonderful business lunch at Hugo's / Des Plaines! The food was delicious, and the service was top-notch. I'm looking forward to returning just to try the Grilled Faroe Island Salmon and the Alaskan King Crab Chopped Salad! You will definitely enjoy your meal here!

Food was great, especially the frog legs, but the steak was disappointing. We got a wagyu tomahawk and it really didn't taste special, certainly not at its price. Filet mignon was good, so I'd stick w/ the basics there.

My wife and I love our date nights at Hugo’s, especially when served by our favorite waiter Juan H! Great seafood and steaks, delicious appetizers, and always a warm vibe whether at a table or sitting at the bar. A can’t miss dinner experience, whether you end up in the casino or not.

The waiter was outstanding and did everything to make our experience exceptional. He also had a great sense of humor. He moved us along but in a wonderful way. Food was exceptional, went for "meat" the fillets.

Hugo Frogs is always excellent, we've eaten at this location several times. The great service and consistent quality of a Gibson's restaurant is the norm. The steaks were excellent , Gina our sever was exceptional and delightful.

For a $200. meal it was VERY disappointing.
Our steaks were not hot at all. This was the case for our friends as well and another party next to us who shared their dessert that was on the house for the same reason.
Our waiter came back to check on us so much later that we didn't complain or return the food...just wanted a pleasant meal without hassles. Will not return!

Our server was amazing- I could not believe how quickly our drinks came out and our appetizer. Even our food and we ordered a filet and 2lbs of king crab legs. My water never got less than half empty... just truly the best dining experience I’ve had in a very long time. This place makes turns dining service into an art form.

Food and service were wonderful. However, it is very loud in the restaurant and we had a loud drunk there who really liked to hear herself that rather hurt the overall experience. Was traveling and the casino was next to my hotel so convenient for a nice dinner.

Had lunch with friends at Hugo's - it's inside the Rosemont Casino, which is o.k. Service was very good - friendly and attentive. My crab salad was unremarkable. I'm pretty sure they did not dress the salad, as it had little flavor. It was not bad, just not special. My friends seemed to enjoy their entrees though. So if you're at the Casino, or in the area, it's not a bad choice.
