I had lunch with some of my colleagues a couple times. Recently had dinner with seven other girlfriends. Menu is perfect, something for everyone. Service was awesome and Garfield our waiter was very accommodating, he helped with our selections when we were undecided.

Our service was so bad , it made the whole experience awful. We had a light dinner because we were going to a comedy show. We had a burger and po boy which were both good. We ordered the mac and cheese side which came out cold, when our server did check back with us we told him it was cold and had to ask him to please get a new one. A manager dropped a new one to us and then nobody checked back again. We had to ask for refills on our water and never got asked if i would like a second beer. Lastly we had coffee and my wife ordered the piece of cake. If you have never eaten there before like us , just a warning the cake is enormous, as high as a steak knife and enough to feed 4-6 people. We were not given a warning. We had to ask for a refill on the coffee. The whole dreadful experience took over 2 hours.

Had a 9 pm reservation. When making it I checked and it said that they were serving until 11.
The bread was cold and hard. They seemed to rush us out. I heard them telling people that came into the bar that they were closed I asked for my steak to be done medium well. The waiter at one point commented since I ordered Medium well it is going to take so long to cook. It still came out bleeding.. i did not send it back , I boxed it to go home. Mashed potatos seemed microwaved burnt. I realize that it was a later reservation but for the price ...the service and food should be set at the same standards. I have been here before and will not be going back. There are many decent Steak restaurants in Philadelphia where I would rather spend my money.

We had a great experience! Drinks were good. Wine list is decent. Appetizers were delicious (lobster bisque and garbage salad); but the bone-in ribeye was fabulous!!! Awesome grade of meat cooked perfectly as ordered. Twice baked potato was huge - enough for two to share (possibly even 3 could share lol). Dessert was so-so.

The food at Hugo Frog's is excellent. The Lobster Bisque was rich and delicious. The Flounder with King Crab was wonderful. The Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked. Unfortunately, the service (more a fault in timing from the kitchen than the actual servers) was abysmal. Our three-course meal, which should have taken a well-paced hour and a half, was ordered, served, and paid for in about 45 minutes. The soup was at the table even before the very generous glass of Duckhorn (which helped make the $17 price tag more palatable). The soup was in a large bowl and it was hot. No problem there! However, things rapidly went downhill. We were barely halfway through our soup before the main course arrived. This was less than 15 minutes into our meal. I was inclined to send it back, but figured it would just sit under the heat lamp and die a slow death, so the soup got pushed aside and we enjoyed the delicious entrees. We took our time eating these, worried all the time that the dessert was imminent. The servers waited for us to finish our mains, but the dessert was in front of us within a minute. We felt extremely rushed, which ruined this fantastic meal for us. The restaurant was only half full, so there should have been no rush to turn the tables, but we certainly didn't have the opportunity to linger over any portion of the meal. I took more than half of the large glass of wine with me into the elegant bar and listened to the enthusiastic, but only mildly talented. pianist while watching some sports on TV. A rather inauspicious end to our "high-end" dinner! We expected so much more and will not be back. Nor will we recommend this restaurant to our friends or family.

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.

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.

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!

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.
