I wanted to love it, but I only liked it. And it was pricey.

I took my wife here on a romantic special-occasion date, on the repeated recommendation of trusted individuals. First, be aware, that you must valet park your car.

I have tried to get into Hugo's a number of times for dinner but the reservations were always fully booked. Now, I know why. My wife and I had a wonderful lunch of Ceviche Tradicional (fresh Red Snapper, avocado, tomatoes, radish and lime) followed by Chilaquiles and Huevos Rancheros. Both dishes were outstanding. The Gran Repasado margaritas added to our... More

For those unfamiliar with Houston, zoning doesn't really exist, so industrial, residential, and commercial properties can blend together and make real estate a premium. Hugo ' s location reflects this with nearby parking being scarce. Fortunately there is complimentary valet parking. We waited about 10 minutes with a reservation on a packed Saturday night. The entrance is covered in magazine... More

This is not a 'Mexican' restaurant. It is fine dining based on Mexican traditions. If you have three or more people, order an appetizer platter. It was one of the best I have ever had in any ind of restaurant. Four of us had different main courses - all were good. The waiter arranged for one diner an enchilada dish... More

This is a fun place to go for a nice, upscale Mexican dinner. Definitely not your "typical" Mexican flavors and prices--I had the sauteed seafood, with octopus, lobster, shrimp, scallops and mussels for $30 and it was wonderful! There are cheaper options on the menu, but they were all very meat-heavy which isn't really my thing. The one disappointing factor... More

Had been wanting to try Hugo's for some time, quite a well-known Houston restaurant and the chef is renowned for several other Houston restaurants which we have tried and liked. It's a little noisy, but the service was good and the staff very courteous. The grasshoppers, yes grasshoppers, were "in season", so to speak, so we had to try them.... More

I had a margarita and a sangria and both lacked taste and character. The seafood stew was hearty, full of seafood with a delicious tomato base. I had a tres leches for dessert and did not like the texture of the cake (too dense), and the topping. I would not order the tres leches again. The waiter was not much... More

My hotel recommended this spot and I must say I introduced a local to spot. Gorgeous restaurant, great staff and outstanding brunch. Spicy bloody- followed by Skinny Margarita set the tone. I'm coming back Hugo's!

I love the Puebla atmosphere here, not to mention the Chapulienes! Their Sopa de Marioscos is my fave.
