The seafood at Hugo's is among the best you can experience away from the east coast. It is a very expensive restaurant. A dinner for five cost $440. I had the Chilean Sea Bass in a miso reduction with mushrooms and peas and it was beautifully seared and tasted great. My wife had the crab cake and filet and the... More

I love this place! I have been to Hugo's a number of times and was first taken there on a work meal by my boss and the rest of the team. The atmosphere is buzzy and really good fun but still there are a lot of professionals around so it doesn't lose it's sophistication. The service is really good and... More

A classic Chicago restaurant, in a classic neighborhood, serving up classic meals fit for a special night out with friends or family. Old school all the way at this place. Go for steaks, or seafood. Their desserts are massive. The bar upfront usually has a piano player which for me, adds another reason to like this place.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and we had a fantastic experience! We had the escargot, Hugo's Lobster Tail, Char Broiled Filet Medallions, Wild Caught Marinated Shrimp, Shrimp Dejonghe as well as sautéed mushroom & the Brussels sprouts. All of it was so flavorful & had large portions. Art & Tony took the time to explain dishes so... More

I have been to this restaurant several times over the years and it never disappoints. I always get the crab cakes because they are amazing. Either get the appetizer or the dinner entree. Either way, you will love them. This time I was with my family and they had the sea bass, the salmon and the scallops. All were delicious.... More

Steaks and fish are amazing. Service is excellent. Save room for a big dessert to share. It shares a kitchen with Gibson's, but it is not quite as frantic as being in Gibson's

Wonderful seafood house restaurant, with a bar area that is entertaining with live music. Beautiful restaurant inside, with a upscale feel.

I was excited to get a steak here, but I thought it was just so-so. It was cooked well enough, but I thought it lacked seasoning. We ordered mushrooms as a side and we weren't very impressed with their quality. Although I have to say, their portions are HUGE. We ordered one steak to share and that was plenty. Our... More

Hubs and I dined here for our anniversary on 1/2/15. I made reservations by calling them since Open Table was having issues but when we arrived they couldn't find it. Mild panic set in as they were packed on a Friday night but hostess still snagged us a great table pronto so props to her! Menu is huge and varied... More
