After reading all of the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor my husband and I decided we should check Hugo's out, and we were not disappointed. Hugo's is not fancy - and that's ok. The decor was simple, no excessive decorations. Seating was comfortable. It was quiet, and we were able to relax a bit.
The sommelier, John, was wonderful. I think it was the first time I've ever had a sommelier who actually tasted the wine before us. There was a nice selection of wines to choose from, as well as craft beers.
The tableside salad was very nice. We were asked to choose what we would like - hearts of palm, artichokes, shrimp, blue cheese, etc. We also tried the cold seafood, also very good. Not tough or stringy.
My husband had the rack of lamb and I had the Tournedos Hugo. My husband is a little picky about his lamb, but he had no complaints whatsoever. It was perfectly done - rare. The Tournedos Hugo are filet mignon medallions with foie gras and artichokes on top. Also perfectly done - rare. The vegetables were nicely crisp as well., and the potatoes not salty.
The chocolate covered fruit was well made and tasty. We also tried the creme brulee, which was excellent. It was nicely flavored with ginger. The sugar crust and the consistency were both perfect. One of the best creme brulees we've had in a long time!
The service was excellent - there when you need them, not in your face when you don't.
I used to be a florist, and the roses are beautiful - strong, long stemmed. I actually packed mine because I didn't want to leave it behind.
All in all, it was a terrifice dinner for a terrific price in a city where you can pay an awful lot for absolutely nothing. Hugo's will be on our list of must-dos for all of our future visits to Vegas.
