This restaurant is on our "return to" list. Great food and service ! The crab cakes are some of the best you will have! The crab bisque soup is a must! The Grouper was delightful as well as the Salmon dishes. We are looking forward to going back!

Hugo's is a great option to get a Gibson's steak. Great atmosphere. Great bar. Great location. Wonderful seafood too. Worth the wait to get seated. I try to visit whenever in town on business.

We always look forward to eating at this restaurant when we're in Chicago. Service was extremely poor, there was a debate as to whose table we were, the waiter was more interested In the table of 5 nearly sitting on our laps! Food was great but idk why I waiter hated our table!

Every single dish I tried was excellent! (except the frogs legs - am not a fan). The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. We did though have way too much food - so if you have smaller eaters I suggest sharing a plate. Also - the soups are spectacular.

We were immediately seated in bar area without a reservation on a Wednesday night. There was great live music. One man playing piano. The crab bisque is amazing. I had the filet medallions oscar style and they were delicious and not too much. Great dinner!
