Had a group of 8 including an infant. First class service from moment we arrived through departure. Our servers were Joel and Andrew and they were pros. Excellent service and recommendations on cocktails, wine, and meal choices. This is the fifth time we’ve been and have had excellent experiences every time. Hugo’s is one of my top 3 places in Chicago to dine. Bravo!
Fabulous food and service, always a favorite!
First it was V Day, so it was great to be able to get a table. First off they seated us basically in the back dark corner of the restaurant, which we didn't mind too much because of the holiday. But soon we noticed how cold it was in the restaurant, we couldn't even finish our meal or take off our coats because of it. We rushed out so fast because of the cold.
But, our waiter was great. Very great recommendations and helped pairing oysters and splitting dishes.
What incredible frog legs! Sea bass was amazing too. Terrific service. What a great Valentines Day venue!! Will go back very soon.
Excellent service, great food,
I came in for my birthday and the service was impeccable by my waiter Pete. Both managers came over to say hello and check on how the food and service was. They were outstanding, engaging, professional and very kind. My waiter Pete went way out of his way to make sure cocktails, appetizers and dinner were nothing but wonderful...and they were. Best service I ever had in a Chicago restaurant. Thank you!
Best Sea Bass ever!!
Wait staff was great. Seafood quality is excellent
Fancy and fun! Hugo's is the seafood variant on Gibson's gourmet steakhouse, and bills itself as a Chicago institution. It fits the part--the menu is awe-inspiring in terms of fresh fish variety (all flown in daily, according to the restaurant), and it's association with Gibson's means you can get really amazing steaks as well. It's pricey--expect around $100 per diner (we had an appetizer, an entre, and an a la carte side, along with one drink).
The atmosphere is convivial, and the waiters are engaging and bring sample cuts of fish to show you what you'll get. It's an exciting place to eat--feels like the kind of place parties go to have amazing food and a good time.
We were celebrating a birthday and this restaurant fit all of our needs.
Appetizers were very good and the food was outstanding. Service was above and beyond.
