“Busy place for lunch”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Nice variety of lunch items that were done very well. The service seemed a little slow but owing to the busy atmosphere and crowd it was not too bad. The outside seating was nice but a bit noisy.

“Loud Atmosphere and Fair Service”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Atmosphere is very loud and numerous staff walking around and making it difficult to walk through the dinning area without someone bumping into you. Our server was not attentive to our table. When we asked for a lemon wedge for our water; he gave us a blank uncomfortable stare. We asked if that was okay, hesitation then agreeable. When we asked for more butter for the bread, that weird face and response appeared again. We waited a long time between drink order, appetizer order, meal order, dessert order and check. Reservation was at 6:00PM and we left at 10:00PM. Two Chicago cut steaks were ordered medium; one was perfect and second was rare. Steak sent back and he returned with same steak (that had been cut down the middle) it was more medium rare and bled all over the plate which was not appealing. Expected better service and food for the price. Crab cakes and firecracker shrimp were great! Key lime pie was good, average flourless chocolate cake.

“Favorite Spot in Naperville”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

You can't go wrong with any choice-seafood or steak. Recommend reservations for Friday or Saturday as it can get crowded.

“Great place to enjoy small plates and more”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

My wife and I enjoy going to Hugo's about 1/month. We enjoy the atmosphere and when the weather cooperates, sitting outside on their patio is especially nice. We like to order a number of small plates as either our dinner or lunch. They have great salads, soups and their filet sliders are fantastic! Their service is consistently very good too.

So why not a top, excellent rating? When we have ordered full dinners (rather than small plates) it has been hit or miss. I have ordered steaks and sea bass that at times were just OK, but not for the price. We have had family members mention the same thing about their dinners being inconsistent so I don't think it is a random occurrence.

My recommendation is to take advantage of their beautiful bar (or outdoor patio), enjoy the live piano music, excellent service and order small plates, especially their variety of fish and steak sliders, soups and salads. Oh and if you like bread and wine, the bread is THE best and their wine selection is great. It is also more economical to go with small plates, the food is terrific and the atmosphere is wonderful. Get there early to get a seat.
