Was very disappointed on the service we received while dining at Hugo’s. We made reservations and had to wait 5-10 min before being seated. Others who came in after us were seated before us.
The food was good but our waiter seemed overwhelmed and rushed through every explanation of the specials. He seemed aggravated on the questions we asked and seemed rushed. We waited about 45 minutes to get our food and the couple who arrived after got their food before we did. I will not be returning to Hugo’s.

I was disappointed in the noise, the food was great. However, there was so much noise it was hard to hold a conversation.

My husband and myself have wanted to try Hugo’s for sometime now. So we decided to come for our anniversary. We were very pleased! The food was very delicious and cooked well. There is a shrimp appetizer that is soooo good!! The staff was very nice and the atmosphere is very nice as well!

We went for our friend’s birthday. She lives frog legs so this is the place to go! We had a great lunch, a very nice server, and even a scoop of ice cream with a birthday candle.

They got rid of the lobster and Mac. That should have been the sign. Swordfish far from blacked, semi raw and moderately warm. Fish tacos and the crab cake did not disappoint. The rest however.. well let’s just say I’m looking for another Naperville restaurant for good fish. Doubt I’ll be returning anytime soon.

Food, as always, was excellent! Service was very good. As is with most restaurants that have great food and great service, there was quite a crowd of people, and so the noise level was above average, also. Plus, we were there during the height of the dinner hour on a Saturday night. It tapered off somewhat after 8:00 p.m.

Service was a bit slow but it was a Saturday evening. The waiter was very nice. My steak had an awful flavor. We sent it back and they replaced it with something else. Woke up the next morning wishing I got the crab cakes. I’ll do that next time.

Hostess was not pleased that we requested a booth. My filet was more medium well than medium. Crab cakes and halibut was above excellent. Service was what one would expect. Thank you. Very good evening

Where would you order the Dover Sole delivered fresh from Holland? Only at this establishment in the whole suburbs. I order every time my Dover Sole when I am at Hugo's and it never disappoints me (see photos before and after). The fish itself is a rare delicacy and you would savor every bite of it. I guarantee! Meats are a different story which puzzles me at the restaurant, that belongs to the Gibson Group, praising itself as specialists in the meat area. The filet, that my husband ordered as a part of his surf and turf, was brought to the table medium well instead of medium rare as he requested and after the second attempt was cooked to the right temperature but tasted not as outstanding as you would expect for the price. The taste of the crabmeat in my appetizer was overpowered by the heavy dressing, my husband's spicy lobster cocktail was ok. Conclusion: if you craving Dover Sole or any fish or seafood and would like to spend an evening in a vibrant atmosphere of the Old Style Chicago with a glass of good wine, you will enjoy the restaurant. Meat is a different story though ...

Food was great as usual.
Server asked us how we were doing , " Phenomenal today, how are you doing today "....reply was
"same ole, same ole".....I understand if he is not that excited to be working on a Friday night - but at least he could do was act a little enthusiastic. Not bad service, just not the normal level we receive at Hugos.

Oyster were pathetic. 4 average to good size and 8 about 1/2 that size. NOT worth the money. I expected better. Whitefish plate was exceptional and service friendly and professional.

Every bit as good as the Chicago location. Ordered steak and cake special. Filet was like butter and perfectly medium rare. The crab cake is the best ever. All crab and very large portion. In fact it was big enough to share. Great service and will be back.

Service was outstanding. Drinks were very good. Ambience not as intimate as we would have liked. Steak was prepared to correct temp (Medium Rare) but outside was tough and so overall taste was not as good as my normal Hugo's experience.

We normally Love Hugo’s! The salmon was dry and over cooked and the bone-in New York strip was undercooked and full of fat. Very disappointed ! We had brought family in from out of state and was hoping for a great meal. Such a bummer.

Hugo's is always a great time from the atmosphere to the food, our evening was perfect! The staff is friendly and accommodates special requests. As regular patrons we are always greeted with a smile and staff does not hesitate to stop by our table to welcome us back! Good times at Hugo's!!
