    Food was amazing. An amazing and big menu of all plant based meals. Service a little slow that day because of a big crowd but staff was very nice and accommodating. Would go back again.

    my wife has celiac and ordered an item on the menu that indicated it was gluten free. however, when I reviewed the bill afterwards I notice we charged an additional 3% for her item as "love care" to make sure it was not cross contaminated with. I have been to Hugo's many times and that was the first time they charged extra for that. I find that if you are touting that you provide gluten free items that there should not be anything extra to fulfill that request whether it be gluten intolerance or celiac.

    Hugo's Studio CityResponded 3 days agoThank you for reaching out! We have language on our menu & checks about the optional surcharge. By making the charge optional, we're able to let guests choose if they want to add extra for the kitchen staff (who can't legally share tips) We've increased the rates of all of our back of house staff, but still, restaurants run on tiny margins & aren't big money making operations. The surcharge isn't about allergens. Our staff takes care of our guests no matter what. Sorry this was misunderstood!

    Food good diner/ coffee shop dishes, plus some outside that descriptive. Our group of three tried the breakfast burrito, pumpkin pancakes, and omelette - all good, with everyone agreeing the pancakes were great. Parking lot is kinda small, but we easily found nearby street parking (at noon on Sat). Service attentive, food arrived as prompt as expected. (They were busy, but the food didn’t seem delayed.) I send my boss here for morning meeting because they do reservations and (during weekday mornings) the lot parking is free enough that I’ve never heard of an issue.

    I've been here before and always had a good experience, this time not really. While the server was nice, the whole experience was not good. First it took forever for the server to get to us, I think they're understaffed. Then it took forever to get our food and when we got it we only got half of it. The kitchen switched the meals so 2 people got food and the other 2 were waiting. They gave us rolls but they were so hard that they bounced. Then they brought the rest of our food, but the sandwich was the wrong type and had allergens on it. So they had to remake the sandwich, and then it was only mediocre. Finally, after 1.5 hours we paid the bill and left. Again, the servers were very nice. I just wish there were enough of them that we could have enjoyed the meal.

    Unfortunately, the dinner experience at Hugo's was not ideal this time. We had a 7pm reservation and were told they were closing up the restaurant at 9pm which seemed very early for a Saturday night. The quantity of food you get is definitely smaller than in the past for the same (or maybe even higher) prices. Understood this is the challenge at many restaurants right now but it is still disappointing when you've been dining somewhere for many years.

    Service was excellent. We sat outside, with our dog, on a gorgeous Saturday evening. Food was fair, but I found the offerings uninspiring, despite the abundance. Usually I have no trouble finding several things I would like. Not so here. I ended up with a chicken club sandwich that was bland & boring. Perhaps not the best choice, but nothing else sounded appetizing.

    The menu had a really nice variety including lots of dietary need-based options, the seating was close but comfortable, the wait staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. Parking is minimal and we had to park a short walk away in the neighborhood. There’s indoor and outdoor covered patio seating. Oh and it’s small/polite dog friendly. And last but not least the freeway access is great, so that and the something-for-everyone menu make it a good spot for a meet-up.

    Hugo's was super delicious and they have an outdoor patio for those of us who want to have fresh air. I was even able to bring my little dog. My only concern is that one of our guests got sick after breakfast...and we're not sure if it was the runny eggs. The rest of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

    My family have visited Hugo's many times over the years. We have consistently had a good experience. Recently, I have dined on a weekday with a friend. We have had reservations for the time the restaurant opens at 9:00. We have dined in the Grotto (which is off the parking area under a shade cover.) The service has been crisp and pleasant. The food, seating, atmosphere, noise level, everything has been just fine. I totally recommend this restaurant.

    The food is nothing special. Perhaps it would have tasted better with the condiments that come standard with breakfast. Syrup for my French toast would have been nice. Our waiter brought us water and then forgot about us. We finally ordered but coffee and drinks arrived after we were done with our meal. It was really bad. I almost didn’t leave a tip, but I’m not that kind of person. I know people are short handed these days, but that doesn’t excuse bad service. I’ve gone to many restaurants as of late where you can tell that they are short staffed but the staff still manages to do a great job. Unfortunately, this is the first and last time for Hugo’s. I wouldn’t recommend. Take your business elsewhere. The food isn’t that great to deal with the nonsense of really bad service.
