What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.5

One of the original "healthy" restaurants.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

I was really disappointed in the food, the salmon was completely dried out with bones in it. My past experiences at this restaurant have been great food wise and service is always top notch.

LOVE the creative menu -- so many choices. I honestly think I'd eat there every day if I could afford it. The free parking lot was full but the public lot across the street is free for the first hour, so not too bad. We got there at 12:45 on a weekday. At one, the lunch crowd arrived - so pays to plan to go earlier.

Our server was pleasant and attentive, but the food was not very good at all. Vegetables were oversalted, greens were bitter, veggie burger was dry, fries were burnt, dry, and looked like remnants of a previous batch. I've been to Hugo's many times and the food has always been good, but all of us were disappointed in our meals this time- sorry! My salmon was dry/overcooked and had no flavor. Sorry to sound negative, but although everyone was pleasant with good energy, the food was... no.

The service was impeccable. The staff made us feel so welcomed. It was a birthday dinner for a friend and the complimentary cute dessert with the lit candle was a great touch.
I'll return there soon!

I had the vegan Reuben sandwich. The vegan salami is made with mung beans. Sounds a little odd, but I couldn't believe how good it tasted. I'd have it again. Hugo's always has plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, as well as plenty of options for the meat folks. There's something for everyone.

I am Coeliac and I did not get any bad reaction from their food and I am super sensitive. I rarely eat out because lots of restaurants say they have gf options (and they do) but they don't understand how vital it is to avoid Cross Contamination. I trust these people. I definitely recommend for those who are genuinely affected by gluten. I don't care about GF fad dieters, they can eat wherever they like...For someone like me with a genuine medical need, I highly recommend Hugo's. 5 stars. Thank you so much for caring about us.

We went to Hugo's because of my food allergies, no wheat, no dairy, and they have a lot of options that fit with those restrictions. But, the food was awesome. We'll be back next time in LA.

I hate to write this because we have enjoyed this restaurant many times. Tonight my husband’s chicken was raw near the bone. We pointed this out to our server. She spoke with the cook, then brought the chicken back to the table. The cook said that because it was dark meat it was cooked correctly. We pointed out that serving undercooked chicken is dangerous. Our server asked if we wanted her to do something about it. We declined. We never ask for free food if there is a problem with a restaurant.
I fear that if they think that under cooked chicken is acceptable they may be violating other health concerns. I am truly sorry to say that I won’t return to Hugo’s.

Selected Hugos because it was close to the event we were attending. It's an excellent day to day restaurant. A tad noisy, so if you're looking for something more intimate, this is not the place for you. Service was quick. Almost felt like they wanted to turn table too quickly. Granted we were there for an early dinner (6 pm), and maybe the late dining is more aligned to the celebrity of the area. I would go back, but may not be my first choice

Restaurant was average. Menu selections offered routine choices. Nothing was exciting or unique. The food was tasty and fresh quality. Fair price for the dinner meal, but desserts are too expensive. Noise level was awful. A table of eight people were loud and disruptive. Waitress was attentive and pleasant.

This West Hollywood institution is as close to a Sure Thing as you're going to get for good, comfort food (Pasta Mama rocks!) and friendly, attentive service. We had breakfast on a Sunday morning, with friends from out of town -- we could hear each other speak, the food was great, and the service couldn't be better.
