So good we drove slightly out of the way to go again the next day!

Found this gem on Trip Advisor after trying to find a seafood place in the Naperville area. So glad we did. Located in the cute downtown Naperville area and fairly easy to get to off I-88. 0 to 15 minutes off I-88 and well worth it. Very reasonable for lunch (had lunch both times). The clam... read more

This was the second time we've been to Hugo's in the past six months and this time was a disappointment. Although the atmosphere is great, the decor classic seafood restaurant (i.e. large mounted fish on the walls, photos of light houses) and the service good, the food is not why you come here. I've had far better seafood at Shaw's... More

Myself and two old friends recently went for dinner here on the advice of my hotel Concierge. We rocked up on a Monday night around 7.30pm without a reservation and were led to a very loud dining room in the rear. What started out as a wonderful meal with great, well-informed servers who guide us through the menu and brought... More

Great place, highly frequented, well organised with excellent food. If you want to be in the middle of where the action is, this is the place to go. Great piano music - pianist shown in the picture library - a service oriented team and nice atmosphere. Make sure that you get a nice table not to close to the piano... More

We have had the pleasure of eating at great restaurants across the country. This is literally one of the best. The Chilean sea bass was the best I have ever had. It was smooth flaky with a sweet buttery taste. The steak was divine. The service was impeccable! A must eat when in Chicago!

My daughter and I stumbled upon this restaurant after a day of birthday shopping for her on our way back to our hitek. This was, a wonderful find. We we seated and served quickly our mouth watering appetizer and dinner salads. My entrée was the lump crab cake which was moist and delicious. I'm glad I took the waiter's suggestion... More

We had 7pm reservation for (4). We ran a few minutes late, do to traffic issues. We did call to advise. We were seated about. 7:30. Nice assortment of drinks. The meal started of with a big basket of bread, two flavors, both were good. Hugo's must share the kitchen with Gibson's, because along with all of the seafood entrees,... More

We had reservations! It was the day of the St Paddy days parade in Chicago. We arrived on time and were seated at a table a bit tight and asked for a booth. They did get us a booth! We had a 3 1/2 hour dinner and were not rushed. Our waiter was fantastic! The Chilean Sea Bass was unbelievable... More

5 varieties of oysters, garlic frogs legs if you care for them and fabulous filet sliders. The Bloody Marys were great
