We traveled 3 hours for this meal - it was our second trip just to eat and we expect to travel to eat with Hugo’s at least 2/3 more times this year
My boyfriend and I were visiting for the weekend. We stubbles upon Hugo’s on a Saturday and had one of the best meals! Our waitress Sarah was very friendly, she was very knowledgeable of the menu which is always a plus! We were offered a piece of fried smelt to start our meal which was excellent. We ordered the tuna poke, fluke crudo, smoked lobster & squid ink pasta, whole branzino, oyster stew and finished with crepe Suzette. The whole roasted branzino was probably my favorite. We cleaned the plate! It was one of the most memorable meals for us. Definitely worth a trip!!
Incredibly delicious food with unusal gourmet presentation. Servers there when you need them. Very relaxed atmosphere.
3rd time and we feel lucky to have Hugo's nearby. We have a fish focussed tasting menu and all the dishes were creative and tasty. The sommelier paired us a bottle from Sean Thackrey which was just beautiful. If you live in or near Portland do yourself and a loved on a favour and book soon.
Guests from out of town so we wanted to give them a special food experience in Portland. Couldn't have chosen a better place. We stuck to lots of small plates with imaginative food pairings, fabulous cocktails, great wine list, quiet so we could actually carry on a conversation without shouting and very attentive wait staff who carefully explained each item as it was brought to the table. Next time I'm going back to sit at the bar and watch the show.
Valentine’s day. Paul and Justin terrific. Tasting menu never seemed to stop. Thoroughly enjoyable. Look forward to next opportunity to go again.
We had an outstanding meal at Hugo's. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Attentive but not annoying. The chef sent a few special mini courses to us in between apps and dinner course and for dessert. The meal was incredible.
Blind chef’s tasting was amazing!
Everything was outstanding. My cocktail was one of my favorites ever and the beet bolognese was one of the top 5 dishes I have ever had! However the smoked carrot dessert was lackluster.
