This place was a top notch steak joint. On top of that they had plenty of other options on the menu. Serving sizes were ample. Deserts were amazing...even if there was enough for about six people. I don’t know what exactly I expected, but this place blew me away. I would definitely go back.

The food and service were excellent! Sea scallops were huge and a generous portion. I would have liked a little more of a light sauce (lemon wine, perhaps). Steaks smelled delicious and looked good. Frog legs were tender and tasty. Desserts are huge so only order them to share or take home leftovers. Crab and avocado salad had a generous portion of crap chunks in it. Creamy garlic dressing on house salad was yummy but beware that you'll taste the garlic for the rest of the evening.
The only issue we had was that it is very loud in the restaurant which makes it more difficult to talk.

The food is fantastic....very overpriced however as everything is ala carte. They need to offer a little more space for the tables....they cram in too many people and we were getting bumped a lot. Also, they have so many wait staff that it feels like they are trying to rush you out of there just to get more people in. For that price the atmosphere should feel relaxing and inviting, not like we just got fast food and have to rush and get out.

The parent company of Hugo's is Gibsons. So you know the steaks are going to be good. And they were!

Hugo's was a surprise and a great find. We found we could order very affordably with the local favorites and a side or, enjoy the great steak. We were able to share and it kept our cost in line if not lower than average places. The service was excellent. The only negative was that the bar prices were exorbitant and not known at ordering so, ask the price before ordering.

Had a few seafood appetizers which were very good, then had the crab chopped salad. Lots of unusual ingredients in that salad. Would not recommend.

For the amount of money I spent...The frog legs were underdone, the lobster tail was BEYOND over cooked, the twice baked potato was Luke warm and the cheese melted on top was hard as a rock!! I was very unpleased with my visit, I would not return nor would I recommend this restaurant.

Excellent drinks at the bar before dinner. Made perfectly !

Had the wedge salad and shrimp cocktail for appetizers and then split the 14oz Filet and Brussels spouts for dinner. All was excellent.

Jason, the manager, stopped by and genuinely cared about talking to us and how the meal was. He wasn’t going through the motions - cool dude.

The casino just outside after dinner is icing on the steak ...!

Service was great. Very attentive wait staff. My steak was supposed to be medium but was dry in many places. For a Gibson steak I could have made a much better one myself. They made up for this with a free dessert but maybe the steak should have been removed from the bill.

Also very loud. I don’t think I will be going back with all the steakhouse options in Chicago.

The food was amazing, but, sadly I won't return. It was the loudest restaurant I have ever been to in my entire life. My ears hurt after we left. I can't enjoy conversation over dinner when I can't hear it. I typically don't mind loud, energetic noise levels, but this was horrendous.

I had the Chilean sea bass on a bed of mashed peas...$50. I was underwhelmed when it was brought out and it tasted fine but nothing to get excited about. The creamed spinach was really good as a side item.

Every year we enjoy eating here at Valentine Day. The food is excellent and the service super. We usually eat in the bar area but this year I made my reservation in early January. I was glad we did because it was packed!
