I visit this restaurant whenever my palate desires a meal of a different style. The food is healthy and flavorful. The staff are nice and the restaurant décor is welcoming and homey. Many of the dishes can be prepared with a non-meat options for those of us who prefer it. Aside from the food, there is a wide variety of... More

My friend and I visited Hugos for lunch and were both amazed and overwhelmed by the variety of dishes available. They cater to special diets such as vegan and/or gluten free. All of it had a good presentation. They also have a variety of teas to choose from that most other restaurants don't. We had the vegetable stew which had... More

I was recently in the Los Angeles area, visiting friends, and decided to stop at Hugo's for lunch. They have quite a varied menue. Everything from burgers and wraps to breakfast and salads. I decided to try the Rubin sandwich. Now keep in mind that I'm originally from the NY area and a Rubin is supposed to be made with... More

Been a Hugo's fan for decades both in Weho and in Valley. Haven't had a bad meal yet. Staff always friendly. Good quality ingredients and good cooks in the kitchen.

I visited here with family and one member is vegan. The waitress was great, she had a fun personality and was attentive without being in your face. The variety of food on offer was extensive and they could be tailored to individual needs - allergies, vegan or vegetarian all catered for. The coffee was plentiful and nice. I had the... More

We're so used to going to restaurants, even "vegetarian-friendly" ones, where there are really only a couple of not-meat choices: for instance replacing meat in any dish with tofu. Not at Hugo's. There are many, many unique non-meat dishes as well as some good meat ones, too. I had an Indian plate that was a special right now, not on... More

Service was good. Food was incredible! We got the Cuban sandwich which was incredibly good and also chicken sandwich. The menu has gluten free vegan free items as well. You don't find this often.

If you have friends in both camps, Hugo's is your place! A deep and unique menu with something for all - everything from indulgent to health minded (and all of it delicious!). We started with an order of amazing sticky buns - crispy on the outside and donut consistency on the inside - warm and out of this world, drizzled... More

We booked Hugo's based upon other trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was attentive , but not intrusive, the sommelier was knowledgeable, did not push us toward the most expensive bottle of wine, but the one he thought fit our palate. The food was outstanding and the price very reasonable because it was a complete meal. It... More
