Everything was good but the walleye is amazing.
Long wait even with reservation but was worth it. Will go back. Excellent service and food. Lots to choose from.
I’ve been going to Hugo’s with my family for birthdays for a long time and it’s always been such a great experience, which is why I decided to take my boyfriend for his birthday. It was such a disappointment. He’d never been before. Like always the food was great. But we were seated at this terribly small table that barely fit our meal, we kept getting bumped into by other patrons. Our waiter completely ignored us. The manager replaced our drinks and checked on us more than him! He was substantially more attentive to other tables so it felt like he simply was not interested in serving us. I was really disappointed and his poor service really put a damper on my boyfriends dinner.
Our meal at Hugo's was mixed. My wife had tuna which was fabulous. I ordered a steak that arrived at the table cooked properly, but at room temperature. The staff was quick to respond not only serving another steak, but delivered a shrimp cocktail to provide something while the new steak was being prepared. Second steak was served hot, but the meat was not the same quality as the first. Overall, it was a good experience and we would certainly dine at Hugo's again. The restaurant was packed at the time and it seemed like our waiter (while excellent) was overburdened with tables. That may explain the room temperature steak.
I would recommend Hugo's to anyone looking for a great meal and great service. The food is delicious and the service is even better!
I was entertaining a business group of 8 and had Ron as our server. Ron was exceptional with his knowledge of the menu and recommendations to fit the diverse tastes of the table. Extremely professional, personable and helpful, Ron was as good as the food! I will certainly ask for Ron next time. It was a little tight for 8 at the round table but it worked.
Our waiter - Montrose is the best!!!
Food was outstanding. It was Saturday night and the place was jamming so the noise level was pretty high.
Great Night! Hugo made us feel at home. We made reservations and were seated promptly. We are recommending it and will be regulars.
Terrific seafood and excellent helpful service in a very busy and noisy place. Wouldn't miss it when in Chicago.
Food was so so. Service was great. Sitting at the bar tables is super tight
A true seafood house with raw bar AND Gibson’s Prime steaks, too! Perfect combination. Superb FRESH fish preparation, oysters straight from the ocean and a steak ordered “char, rare” and served that way. What’s not to like? Best meal in Chicago and the bar to match!!
Our server was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and attentive. The tuna steak and sea bass were delicious. The macadamia ice cream cake and chocolate mouse pie, both very good!
Everything was great except for the pecan pie. Overall, I can't complain! The service was exceptional and my entree was exceptional.
Always a great meal and outstanding wait staff
Happy hour has $1 oysters!
A sister restaurant to Gibson’s Steakhouse, which is next door, Hugo’s offers the same impeccable service and consistently excellent food, but the emphasis is on seafood, not beef. Be sure to order a bowl of bookbinder soup with your meal.
We had a dinner reservation for 3 people on a Monday night at 6:30. We were promptly seated. Waiter was pretty solid through the meal and very helpful. Towards the end of dinner the restaurant was much fuller and we lost some attention from our waiter but wasn't bad. The food was awesome (Sea Bass, Halibut and a Filet). As the restaurant got full in was pretty noisy but not overbearing. Overall, I highly recommend Hugo for a very enjoyable dining experience.
Great food & ambiance! Can’t wait to go back, my new favorite!
Fantastic! Everything was on point, appetizers, soup, dinner, dessert! The Crab Cake was delicious n gumbo soup was very tasty!! Work getting a bigger bowl next time!! My tuna steak was fabulous!! Wifes steak medallions were really good, tender and Oscar Style was just "icing on the cake"! The Manhattan drinks are strong and worth the $$ !!!
Unbelievable experience with business associates!
One of the best dinners we have enjoyed in quite awhile! Delicious food, great service.
Excellent as always. Very consistent
After reading other reviews about this restaurant we thought we would give it a try. It’s nothing like Gibsons, which was wonderful right down to the delicious cocktails. They really tout the fresh fish angel but the preparation doesn’t live up to the hype.
Disappointed that elevator table is gone but being seated at a “private” booth created a very intimate setting for our anniversary dinner. Very very busy and energetic as always!
We always have a delicious meal and great service at Hugo’s. This was no exception. I highly recommend it.
Food and service were excellent. Election was good for entrees and deserts were outstanding- save room for the cake!
Bob was amazing
The food was really good. The value was not quite that good. The noise level was a bit louder than we thought was necessary, but for the location, etc...probably exactly what we bargained for.
Everything was delicious, we had a 4-year-old who was very happy with his Mac and cheese, and we enjoyed some of the best mussels ever!
Fantastic as usual!
Always my favorite seat for dining outdoors and indoors!!
Food was good, not great. Service was good with friendly wait staff. The negative was the place is very noisy, in general. Add to that a table of 9 sitting next to us with each trying to outdo the other on just how loud they could talk, to the point where the people on the ends of the table hollering to the each other. Our party could hardly hear each other in conversation without us having to holler at each other. Very uncomfortable!
Always love my visits to this Gold Coast staple. Ambiance, service and cuisine are top notch every time.
Great food and great service
Wonderful!! Food was outstanding and service was fabulous. We will be back.
We sat at an outside table-it was wonderful. The service and the food were wonderful. This is a fabulous restaurant.
We had a great experience. We had tried a couple of times to get in, but they were so busy; a good sign, I guess. This time we had reservations. We asked for outdoor seating, and were accommodated. The food and service was great. Our server, and others around us were all attentive and very personable. They engaged customers in conversation, but not to the extent that we couldn't really enjoy our meal. We will be back for sure.
Great time and atmosphere— service was phenomenal!
We sat on the patio- but later discovered the dining room was gorgeous and looked like a fun time!
The food was phenomenal
