Had dinner here because Gibson's was booked. This restaurant was a funky busy bar and diner. They offer a great fish menu as well as a selection of Gibson's steaks! Nice wine list. Food was superb. Service was excellent. Also allow BYOB.

I want to mention that I've been to Hugo's dozens of times over the last decade. Pretty much my favorite place in Chicago. Its been about a year since Ive been. Went tonight with some friends. First off the place was pretty empty which was odd, even for a Weds night. The service was very rushed. We had to ask... More

Who doesn't like walking into the 50's & 60's? The décor and ambience in this place personify that era in time. We made our reservation for 8 and although we did not get seated until 8:45...,it really wasn't a big deal. Solution...,go and buy a bottle of wine at the bar for your primer. (nice selection) Once we were seated,... More

There were 38 of us and we had a private room upstairs and it was great. Awesome atmosphere, great service awesome food. Wine was fairly priced so were the drinks. It was not cheap but I have absolutely no regrets about dropping about 125$ a head there. It was a night to remember.

Must see location in Chicago! Delicious seafood, and desserts that should be illegal. It's a TAD noisy, but only a little, and quieter than many other Chicago locations.

I had a perfect, icy, astringent , martini in a chilled glass at the bar . Ordered a dover sole, fileted at the table. Good house white, exceptional vegetables. Lingered for a while . Good coffee, excellent servers. I ate alone and never felt rushed . I saw the cold seafood platter and will return. I also returned for crabcakes... More

I am a fresh seafood snob...this place never disappoints, from the crab cakes to the lake perch, my 2 favorites....the crab legs are to die for as well! Service is always over the top & the bar is always a fun atmosphere for an after dinner drink...enjoy😊!!

This is a great place for locals as well as travelers. The food is always good. Although seafood is their speciality, they also have a great burger, a terrific wine list and fantastic desserts. It's a more sophisticated dining experience, but nice jeans fit in too.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
