“Delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

This restaurant is on our "return to" list. Great food and service ! The crab cakes are some of the best you will have! The crab bisque soup is a must! The Grouper was delightful as well as the Salmon dishes. We are looking forward to going back!

“My Fav in Chicago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Hugo's is a great option to get a Gibson's steak. Great atmosphere. Great bar. Great location. Wonderful seafood too. Worth the wait to get seated. I try to visit whenever in town on business.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We had dinner at Hugo's on a Monday night - the place was packed! Food was very good and fresh. Wait staff were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The crab cakes are huge! Nice thing is that you can put together a meal of your choosing if don't see anything on the menu you want - nice touch so that you can mix and match various things!

“Poor-what happened Hugo!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We always look forward to eating at this restaurant when we're in Chicago. Service was extremely poor, there was a debate as to whose table we were, the waiter was more interested In the table of 5 nearly sitting on our laps! Food was great but idk why I waiter hated our table!

“Great food and entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Every single dish I tried was excellent! (except the frogs legs - am not a fan). The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. We did though have way too much food - so if you have smaller eaters I suggest sharing a plate. Also - the soups are spectacular.
