Fresh seafood

We had the Chiean sea bass and it was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had. The clam chowder was just as good. Great atmosphere.

Crab cakes too crabby but can you make that complaint? Food excellent. Wine choice excellent and reasonably priced. Portions huge - stick with a range of appetisers for a great sample of what they can do. Service attentive despite overwhelming busyness.

We keep coming back and love it every time we're in town. Great fresh fish and oysters, good service, good cheer. This time with friends we tried some chilean sea bass as well as the not to be believed or missed crab cakes. They also gladly prepared some off-menu fried oysters (delicious) for my husband. A pesky shell piece found... More

this is a very busy restaurant in a trendy area and well worth the money. The service is prompt and attentive and the food is outstanding. They are next door to Gibsons, one of chicagos best steak houses and they have a variety of Gibson items on their menu if you want a steak or cant get a reservation at... More

That sums it up. My companions had god-to-very-good steaks. The frog legs were amazing. A large serving of incredibly good, perfectly sauteed, legs

Outstanding food when we visited with 6 guests. Wait staff was great and the place was packed. Wonderful atmosphere. Just don't be too startled when a birthday is announced!

Wonderful food and Service. The desserts are enormous, more than enough for a table of 5 ! I would return again.

Fabulous meal, the fish and shellfish are fantastic, but it is not only the food that makes this such a great restaurant but it is the theatre experience of watching what is going on around you. The waiter who served us made us feel special even though they can get through 400-500 covers a night!

Just like its sister restaurant Gibson's right next door, Hugo s is an all American affair in down-town Chicago, serving up seafood in a busy and buzzy dining room. After checking in we went to the bar for pre dinner drinks and the atmosphere was right out of a Hollywood movie The piano crooner in the corner was entertaining the... More

We sat in the bar and had wine and appetizers and listened to the pianist. The shrimp were great. The chowder was probably the best we've ever had. I'd eat the crab and avocado stack every day, if I could. So good. Next door is Gibson's steakhouse. Both are highly recommended

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.
