We decided to come here for restaurant week and was very disappointed. We came here for my grandmothers 80th birthday and was hoping for something satisfying. 3 of us got steak and mash potatoes. THe other 2 got the stuffed flounder. The potatoes that came with the steak were instant and unbearably inedible. They were overly seasoned and salty and topped with a thick brown gravy that none of us liked or could even swallow. We told the waitress and she apologized. The portions were also very small. The stuffed flounder came with 2 stalks of asparagus and nothing else. We were very sadly dissappointed for wasting a special event with a meal that was below average.
Music was too loud. Food was good and service was excellent
Great tasting food and quick service. Giuseppe is a great waiter. Recommended a great wine.
This was my 2nd time dining here and I think the food is outstanding. Our waiter was not too attentive though. He never asked if everything was alright or if we needed anything else. Next time, I am requesting to sit in the bar area.
From beginning to end this was an extraordinarily pleasant experience. The service and environment at Hugo’s is wonderful. Our server was Michael he was not only attentive but knowledgeable and engaging. The management is above board and the entire staff starting with the young lady that does the seating to the staff that clear the table all are extremely polite and professional. The food is delicious and very fresh. This was our first visit but definitely will not be our last.
The service and food was amazing. If you want a place that is quiet with delicious food options, please come here. The chocolate mousse is one of the best I've had. Highly recommend Hugo's.
My wife and I have been with Sugarhouse for a year now and we have liked Hugo's from the start. Like the food and the entire staff. We consider it our place.
Perfect. The atmosphere and the upscale service was quintessential.
Pino is the best waiter and always makes us feel like we are the only guests. The food is always amazing!!!!
It was my first time dining here, and I will definitely be back again soon! Our server was Michael, who was extremely friendly, attentive, and offered suggestions and recommendations. For appetizers I got the lobster bisque, and my fiance got the wedge salad. The bisque was delicious and the wedge salad was enough for 2. I got the filet and my husband got the W.R. Chicago cut. Both steaks were excellent cuts of meat and cooked to perfection. For dessert we got the Creme Brulee. Not only was it enough for 4 people, it was the best I've ever had. We have dined at every steakhouse, from chain restaurants, to the upscale steakhouses, and this place is definitely worth every penny. Even better, we got to play some slots and have a few drinks in the casino after dinner. Be sure to ask for Michael as your server when you make reservations, he is fabulous!
This was my first time to the casino. I attended a show there and didn’t want to go far for dinner. It was fabulous!
I was invited out to an early dinner and I got to pick the place. I chose Hugo's Frog Bar and Chop House. This was a first time. We had reservations for 4 PM (not needed that early). In my opinion, the cocktails are small and weak. I had a margarita that was served in a wine glass. My appetizer (frog legs) were tender but tasteless. My entre (soft shell crab) had a soggy coating and needed more seasoning. We shared the Key Lime Pie for dessert. That was a first for me and I found out that I do not like it.
We attended a concert at Sugarhouse and were able to get 25% off our dining experience. The crabcakes were recommended. They were great!
Garfield our waiter was incredible!
From the moment we walked in we we’re very well treated. Our waitress (Gardfild) was the best! Food was amazing well worth the experience. To cap off we had the most big and delicious cake slice you can ask for.
Thank you so very much for making our special night so great.
Our server, Daisy, is exceptional. Very intuitive and helpful. The staff is very friendly and aware of their products and service.
Great experience with friends and family.
Always great food and exceptional service. We enjoyed our meal out on the patio where it was quiet. My husband's steak was perfectly cooked and my scallops were wonderful. Looking forward to our next visit.
I was very excited to take my wife here for the first time on an evening out. Even though the restaurant is located just off the casino floor you don't hear any of the noise coming into the restaurant. It is very quiet and quaint with a beautiful view of the Delaware River and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. This is my second trip to the restaurant. I truly appreciate their prompt service getting a seated with multiple servers bringing beverages taking food orders bringing appetizers all very quickly and deliciously. My wife has an unusual onion allergy which makes some things difficult to order. They were very careful to make sure that her food was prepared with the utmost care and concern to address for allergy issue.
To start the meal as they bring you menus and request your beverages they also bring you a variety of fresh baked bread and butter for your pleasure. I highly recommend the bread with the fruit in it. It is by far my favorite. As a secondary starter I got the lobster bisque soup which is every bit as good as Bodines legendary soup from San Francisco.
I have the jumbo lump crab cakes which were fantastic. My wife however got the encrusted salmon without the fennel. We both shared a ginormous wedge salad and got the giant prawn shrimp cocktail appetizer.
While the service was impeccable it seemed like they were short staffed. Service slow albeit excellent. House vinaigrette was tasteless but. The rest was very good.
The serving size of the cake for 2 persons for dessert could have fed 8-10 people. It was monstrously oversized! The waitstaff ought to forewarn guests. Regardless it is grossly wasteful and does not impress to serve such a size!
What great place, experience, meal, service and especially the cake! Would highly recommend!
Great service UNTIL, the place started to fill up. Then we basically lost our server Michael for longer periods of time.
Don't think it was his fault necessarily, but the service from 6pm to 7pm was better than from 7pm TO 8pm.
Food was average and nothing to write home about. Ordered a $60.00 steak that was definitely not anything special. I live in NYC and have eaten in the best steak houses For less money and much higher quality. The meal was more like sustinence than great food.
Great for a pre show dinner at SugarHouse!
Had dinner here because we were attending a concert. Loved the crab cakes, large with all crab no filler. Great pour on the wines by the glass The fillet sliders were excellent and the spicy charred broccolini was delicious. Nice menu. Will definitely return.
Celebrated my boy friend’s birthday at Hugo’s . Food was excellent. The best steak we’ve ever had. Crab cake was delicious. It’s pricy, but not bad to have it for special days . Manager was very friendly and nice .
Overall, Hugo’s Chicago ought to be embarrassed that the Philly location trades on it’s name. Calamari was weak at best, Steaks were OK - a filet-medium arrived rare, but the real disappointment was the bread basket. The first opportunity Hugo’s had to “show their stuff” or that they even care, arrived as 3 separate dry/cold/dense pieces of flavorless multigrain, cranberry, and rustic Italian bread with 1/3 stick of butter plopped into a bowl. We should’ve checked out there and gone to any one of the many many many better options the city has to offer in the steakhouse category alone....
Dinner was fantastic. The food was delicious. The crab mac and cheese and the filet was to die for. Not to mention the giant chocolate mousse pie...... omg !!!!
We love Hugo’s!!! The food and the service is excellent; expect to pay good money but it is always worth it. Pino is usually our waiter and he is simply the best!!!! Been there many, many times and we will be back. Only downside is having to walk through the smoky casino to get to it.
Went there to have Dinner before show at Event Center. Meal and total experience was EXCELLENT!! Will be returning to restaurant in the near future. All guests also say they enjoyed the meal and total experience. A+++
The portions are big. The bake pitato was 1 lb, so we ordered only one. The server was very nice and so was the atmosphere. Our steaks were delicious. We would go back.
The food was spectacular! The service incredible! I'm from Chicago and you have no idea how wonderful it was to FINALLY have a steak the way it SHOULD taste. At first I was apprehensive because I did not want Gibson's to turn into a franchise ( the owners of Hugos) I am not a fan of franchises. BUT, was happy to learn they were not franchising. Just allowing one to.open in Philly. And, happy to learn the food and cooking standards are just like Chicago's. Thank God!!!!
I enjoyed my meal with my long time friend. We shared the Lump Crab Cake meal. It was a large portion and the waitress had platter divided and even gave us each our own portion of coleslaw. The basket of bread was fresh and our Martinis were refreshing and delicious too.
First time here. I've walked past it many times while gaming at Sugarhouse, but never really stopped in. Took my close friend to lunch there. We both had burgers, and they were absolutely outstanding!!! Came with a side of really thin well done seasoned fries... was excellent!! Service was fantastic, the server took excellent care of us. We'll be going back there for dinner in the future. Highly recommend it!!
Great service from attentive wait staff. Diverse menu with many appealing selections. Portion size was decent without being too much or too little. Food quality was very good. I would eat there again without hesitation.
Had a wonderful salad lunch with great fresh bread. Service was perfect. Very quiet at lunch time.
Michael was our waiter. He was great! We had a great experience thanks to him. He answered all of our questions and checked up on us frequently.
The service was poor at best. At one point, the server vanished for over 20 minutes. The steaks however tasty not worth the money.
Best ribeye steak I ever had. My dates filet minion was also great. Nice atmosphere, but very pricey.
