Seafood
Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House opened its doors in February 1997 in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, next to sister restaurant Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse. Over 20 years after owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo set out to open the city's finest seafood restaurant, Hugo's continues to be the destination for premier east and west coast oysters, crudos, frog legs, lobster and seasonal fish and shellfish, in addition to Gibsons Prime Angus and Gibsons Grassfed Australian steaks. An extensive wine list, classic cocktail list and selection of impressive signature desserts accompany the menu of fresh seafood, steaks and chops. Hugo's seafood is delivered daily, earning The New York Times to praise "the fish could only be fresher if it swam in by itself."

    Wonderful meal - the lobster in artichoke was a highlight! The service was perfect, and we enjoyed the lively atmosphere (including the excellent pianist).

    Hugo's has a fun feeling, and the decor is suitably nautical for a seafood establishment. My recent visit was a mixed experience, though. The martinis, oysters, and clam chowder were excellent, but the tuna au poivre was bland and didn't have much flavor. I was also disappointed to have to wait for a table despite having a reservation. I expected some delays on Mother's Day, but 45 minutes seemed excessive. Our server was not quite as prompt as I would expect on a typical day, but for a holiday, he did a commendable job (I regret not keeping track of his name). I have dined at Hugo's before and will again, but this experience didn't quite meet expectations.

    The waitress seemed to forget us/ when our mani entree came out we were half done with it before our sides came out. We have been coming to Hugo’s for years and this was the first time I was disappointed.

    Regular diner @ this spot. In fairness, the restaurant was slammed for Mother’s Day. Our waiter forgot some of our food order, was gone for long periods of time, food took forever to arrive, and then was not up to standards. Disappointing.

    Our waiter was not attentive. The food was really bland. I didn't really want to complain because it was busy for Mother's Day. But I never paid that much money for steaks that had no taste.

    It was my birthday celebration and they made it great. Honoring my request for a round table and the special birthday attention by our waiter Luke was great.
