It was great experience. I had the halibut and my date had the pork chop, both were very good and done the way we wanted. The ambience was nice and the server was attentive but not overly.

I’d recommend this spot.

Overall, dining at Hugo’s was a good experience.
My sea bass was perfect as was the creamed spinach. My wife ordered whitefish, which came out completely burnt and dry. It was immediately replaced; however, it left me eating alone while she waited for the remake. The only other negative, although to be expected, was the noise level throughout the evening. Overall, Hugo’s was a good experience.

Mark our waiter truly went above and beyond. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. Not only was he attentive to my husband but also made extra sure to tend to my allergy needs. It was by far the best experience Ive had in Chicago thus far and I have been here 40 years!
I highly reccomend the shrimp cocktail, frogs legs, salmon, and the creme brulee. All were AMAZING! AND the meaning of life cake was beyond my expectations for a bday treat! Be prepared that cake is HUGE

This was my first visit to Hugo's and I booked the business dinner based on the restaurant ratings on line. I was a little concerned that it was in the casino but we walked in the front door and Hugo's was just to the right. The atmosphere was active and the service was excellent. Our group did not order appetizers but went straight to the main course, STEAKS!. They were fantastic! All of us had the bone in ribeye and they were hot and cooked perfectly. One of the best steaks I have had in a while. I would highly recommend this Hugo's location if you are in the Chicago O'Hare airport area.

We were there for our anniversary, which was acknowledged by everyone. (Including a complimentary crème brulee, which was yummy.
The breads were only so-so, which we did mention to Jason, the manager. My husband is a "breadaholic", so he definitely noticed that none of the selections was anything special.

We love Hugo's but this time my wife ordered the Whitefish and it was tasteless. The busser was clearing tables like the place was on fire and was very noisy and hit our chair nearly every time they went by. That said, all the other food was great. We did comment, though, that we would go downtown next time because the ambiance of the casino is depressing to us. It would be best if they had an outside entrance directly into the restaurant.

Ordered Chilean sea bass. It was about 2 inch long undercooked for $49. I sent it back and got the same oafish that I took apart back. I would not go back

this was my first time at Hugo's in Des Plaines and the food was nothing less than what I have come to expect from Hugo's...it is always good! Mark our waiter was always there when you might need someone but not too close. He gave us just the right amount of space. I'm looking forward to going back soon.

The quality of food is exceptional. I would love to recommend Hugo’s for Small group dinner because the food and drinks are outstanding. The only thing bad about Hugos is extremely hard to hear any conversations if you are with a large group of people. If you are going there with a small group 6 or smaller you will be fine.

Always fantastic food! Had the New England Clam Chowder for the first time and it is by far the Best New England Clam Chowder I have ever had. Portions are very generous and usually results in enjoying the meal again at home. We always save room for the deserts particularly the Turtle Pie - it is huge and easily shared by 4-8 people. Attentive and friendly service is a hallmark. The manager makes regular rounds to assure you are enjoying the experience and listening to your your comments. This is my Goto place for business and group lunches for the area.
