The service was Great! However the food was not good.
We were disappointed as we were looking forward to the food. Also, the wine was rather expensive and We would not have minded the price if the food had been good.
Unfortunately we will not be back.
Thank you

Highlights - ambiance and flavor of the food. Negatives - definitely the portions. We ordered (party of 2) fried green tomatoes ($9 for 3 topped with delicious goat cheese), 1 dozen oysters, 1 entree each and 1 dessert. When the main entrees came out, we both looked at each other and said "that's it?". Yes, they charge $5 or $6 for extra sides but I expect that ordering the amount of extras we had (plus beer which was great) to be full. Having a $130 tab NOT to be full is ridiculous, and I'm only 145 pounds.

Absolutely one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever experienced. Amazing cocktails and bar tenders! Food is truly Louisiana inspired. Had a real "Cajun" with me and he approved of every morsel! The oysters and all seafood seems fresh and is delicious! Great wine list! The manager is amazing and makes sure you have a terrific experience! Oh, and don't forget the beignets! You must go here and make it a regular place to eat! This restaurant gets a 5+!

If you want a quiet dinner Hugo's is not the place to go but most regulars here know this as this place an get very noisy when full. There staff did a great job helping with our son (2 y/o) who was unhappy in dining room but was fine on their patio and our server (Evan) was really good, an upgrade from our previous visit.

Food quality was good but still not great given that seafood is the focus here. The biggest disappointment was the shrimp. VERY tiny for the price yet again. Had same issue with the po-boy. Crawfish etouffee was tasty but extremely spicy, even for a cajun themed please, it should to be noted on menu. Valet parking a bit slow but cannot complain about the service and staff.

Service was wonderful. Friendly environment. Food - poor. Oyster Rockefeller was terrible & room temperature. Chargrilled oysters had a great taste but were also room temperature with no sauce to dip that delicious French bread in. Redfish special was so fishy couldn’t finish. They cooked it with the skin on. Really don’t even believe that it was redfish. And &38. Extremely over priced. Won’t return.

Long time favorite was a bust on this night. Every restaurant has a bad day, so we will try it one more time, but a lot went wrong. When we arrived for our 8 PM reservation, the hostesses said we are running, consider having a drink at the bar. The bar was crowded and the bartender was overwhelmed. Everyone at the bar was eating - I guess because tables were not available, so there was little room to order a drink and the bartender was busy with food orders. We finally got a spot to order and had our drinks. our table was ready 45 minutes after it was supposed to be ready and I finally got the bartender's attention to close out our tab. To expedite things, I gave him my credit card. I got the bill and saw that he had overcharged us for our order. He was apologetic and went to fix it. He finally came back and said it was really difficult to fix and would it be OK if the bar bought me a drink at my table. I said that would be fine. They said they would speak to the waitress. When she arrived at my table, she said she was aware that the bar owed me a drink, so I ordered one of the same I had earlier. The food came, and for some reason, the recipe used for our favorite roasted oysters was different tonight. I guess a different chef. The salads were also smaller and mine had noticeably less crab meat. When the bill came, I noticed I was charged for the free drink. The waitress fixed it, but we left there questioning what had happened to this place. We will probably try it more more time, but fear it has changed.

I am hoping it was an off night for Hugo's due to their busy celebration earlier in the day. Our friends ordered a bottle of champagne and we were told later that what they ordered was all out. The bartender did come directly to tell us that information and took care of our first round of drinks. My husband and I had already ordered cocktails and when the waitress brought our drinks, she said that the bar had accidentally made an extra of the drink my husband had ordered, so she left that for him. That drink looked like it had been sitting at the bar for a while because it looked watered down, so we didn't worry about it. We ordered appetizers and the server brought us 1/2 dozen oysters when we ordered a dozen, so she had to go back and order another 1/2 dozen. We ordered entrees and when they came, parts of mine was cool and parts were hot. I had salmon that was served over sweet potatoes and parts of the potatoes were warm and parts cool. Not sure why. For dessert we wanted 2 orders of beignets and were told that there were not any more beignets. When we got the check, we were charged for the watered down drink that was left for my husband. We didn't say anything since he did have 2 drinks, but I didn't think it should have been on our bill since it was accidentally made. I am hoping that due to the crawfish celebration earlier in the day was the reason for the issues. We will make sure not to go one one of those nights next time. Usually we have a great experience.

If you want really good oysters and a boisterous environment in which to enjoy them, then this is the place for you. As the decor would indicate, Hugo's has a New Orleans/Mardi Gras feel to it. If you want to be able to carry on a real conversation with your significant other or are in the mood for something other than oysters, best look elsewhere. Wait staff was middling at best, not real attentive but didn't forget about us either.
