Walking through The Four Queens is walking through History. Then walking down the steps into Hugo's is taking a step back in time to the 70's or earlier. I started coming here in my 20's and I just turned 57. The place hasn't changed too much. The ladies are still presented with a red rose while being seated. The atmosphere is dark and masculine. Reminiscent of old steak houses.
They no longer do the tableside salad like they use to. No more raw eggs with the Caesar Salad. Everything is already prepared, but it's still a nice presentation. There is a complimentary bottle of water, the salad is included in the price as is potatoes and a vegetable. Most restaurants charge al a carte for these, so it's a nice touch. Then there is a small dessert trio which is also included, nice touch again.
Dinner was nice, however my ribeye was undercooked and I had to send it back. If you like your steaks medium rare, ask for medium rare +or ++. My companion had a filet cooked medium rare and hers was fine. I think they have trouble with the thinner meat cuts. The taste of the steaks were good, no complaints. I prefer Joe's Stonecrab at Caesars Palace, but we were seeing the play Billy Elliot and didn't want to fight traffic on the Strip.I mentioned our plans and the wait staff was accommodating.
We had a basic bottle of Franciscan wine costing around $40+. I go to Napa, Sonoma, Washington and other wine areas and I found Hugo's wine prices fairly high, but its Vegas.
All in all, I found the experience to be a little above average. I would go back, but there are so many excellent restaurants in Vegas. Try Joe's, Capitale Grill or Delmonico's. You can't go wrong.
