Outstanding meal! Took out of town guests. They were talking about how good the food was for several days. for the noise level review, we were there the night of one of the NFL championship playoffs. There were tables with opposing fans that were exuberant.

The noise level was ridiculous. Could not hear the people at my table. Food was great but if you want to talk to each other, this is not your place.

We have always had great food and service at Hugo's. But, our dinner on Friday, 1/11/19 wasn't the normal experience we usually have. The bar was out of both wine and martini glasses, causing a good 20 minute wait on drinks, on both rounds of drinks. I had the Viet-Cajun Stew with Grouper. The last time I ordered it, it was exactly as advertised, full of veggies and with a crusty bread to dip. This last experience it was grouper sitting in broth only, no vegetables or crusty bread as served before. At $34, this isn't a dish I want served incomplete or lacking anything, really disappointing. Hoping it was only an off night for the bar and the kitchen, things happen. We'll give it another try.

Been here many times, food is not consistent, service is always poor. Got stuffed shrimp this time, tiny little frozen shrimp that were over cooked and hardly any crab. Ousters are always good. Will go there for oysters only from now on

Christmas eve dinner for 7 people, one in a wheelchair. When we arrived, they let us know that a group was lingering at the table they planned to seat us at and offered us a different table that required two steps up...we were able to help our friend in the wheelchair up the two steps. We were perfectly happy with our table, it actually ended up being in the back which was quieter and we were all able to talk and hear each other! To "apologize" for the table being up two steps and the inconvienence to our wheelchair bound friend, they comped several apetizers for the table. They all were delicious but the chargrilled oysters rocked!! The service was great, the food was awesome and plentiful! Several of my friends had the stuffed shrimp that they raved about! My sister and I had the bourbon glazed salmon which was so good, I wanted to lick the bowl...but of course I did not! Deserts were also very good! All in all, a perfect Christmas Eve celebration with great friends and family thanks to Hugo's Oyster Bar! We will definitely be back!

My ONLY complaint was that they were having an event and the menu was limited. It wasn’t mentioned in Open Table and although we stayed and the food and service were good, our choices were even more limited due to allergies. We’ll be back, but hopefully on a normal brunch schedule.

We heard about Hugo's on Atlanta Eats and thought it would be a good place to try. The oysters were perfectly fresh and delicious. The seafood dishes were all excellent as were the sides. Good enough beer selections. Food came out in an adequate amount of time and our party of 4 were all served together. Tyler, our server was knowledgeable, personable, and seemed to enjoy his job. We'll be back!

My husband and I went on a rainy Saturday night and the valet person was completely soaked and had an incredibly cheerful disposition! We were warmly greeted inside and seated immediately. The music was 80's and 90's R&B which we love. Our waiter was very helpful in choosing entrees. The food was really good. I am particular about New Orleans food since I grew up near NOLA and Hugos did not disappoint. The chargrilled oysters and the oysters on the half shell were great and so was the crawfish etouffee. My husband had the Bourbon salmon and for the 1st time ever, raved about the Brussels sprouts! We will definitely return very soon!

Saturday night dinner was great! We had a reservation for two and were seated right away, our waitress was very prompt and attentive, the drink menu was good, the food was REALLY good, and dessert was great as well. They had on the Georgia/Auburn game but it certainly wasn't "sports bar-ish." Even though it's about 20 miles from me, this was my second visit and I know I will go back. I definitely would recommend Hugo's.
