We enjoy Hugo's on each visit to Chicago. The food and atmosphere are incredible. We took our young (7 and 5) children for the first time recently. The staff accommodated their less adventuresome appetite with grace. Make sure to call in advance for reservations.

I live a few blocks from the Triangle, and Hugo's has always been a favorite of mine. Their seafood is delicious, the staff is fantastic. Great spot to eat outside during the summer!

We had 4 at our table and our server was simultaneously sat with a party of 8. We had several other staff checking on us while he was answering questions and taking drink orders from the large party. He did a great job once we placed our order, which took at least 30 minutes, entirely too long. The shrimp cocktail... More

Went to Chicago to celebrate my wife's birthday and she loves seafood so Hugo' Frog Bar seemed like a good choice. Our sever, Ron, catered to my wife and made her feel like she was the only customer in the place. They reviewed the menu, Ron made suggestions and my wife decided on the shrimp cocktail and the king crab... More

The restaurant is well decorated. The wait staff are informed and readily available. The waiter even brought a sample of the various cuts of fish that I could try. I ordered fish and chicken with a side of rice. It was wonderful. The rice was light and seasoned well with butter. The manager came by to check on us and... More

We were lucky to get a last minute reservation on a Friday night. The restaurant is quite large, misleading from the street. The staff is incredibly friendly and wait service was awesome, with Anthony being there one moment, invisible the next and knowing the menu and how to deal with guests like he has been serving for years. Maybe he... More

Hugo's was a hit on our most recent trip to Chicago. I had not read any reviews and we were just wandering Rush Street looking for a place to eat. Short version is that it started to rain, there was a nice looking table on their patio and we were hungry. We enjoy dinner on the patio - Chicago street... More

We stopped into Hugo's sit at the bar and have a drink after an afternoon of shopping. The bartender was fantastic! I hate to say this, but if I owned the place, I would be concerned about the generous pours! Anyway, we loved the place and the menu looked so good that I made reservations for dinner the following night.... More
