This was our second visit to Hugo's for the tasting menu offered at 2-for-1 tasting menu (we had the 5-course version) in the winter months. Last year, our visit coincided with the sale of the restaurant, so we were expecting a somewhat more settled atmosphere and we were not disappointed. This year, we tried to eat as little as possible during the day to ensure we had enough space for all the amazing food.
We started out with drinks at Eventide and were very graciously taken the "back way" through to Hugo's to avoid the snow falling outside. From that point and onwards, the service was seamless. At one point soon after we sat down, I noticed our table wobble, and immediately, without us saying a word, a staff member came over and fixed the issue. Also, our waiter was friendly with a good sense of humor.
On this visit, I was more taken with the shellfish dishes than the fish, which was unexpected. The fried mussels and the razor clam dishes were out-of-this-world delicious. Although the fish was prepared perfectly, the flavor combinations of the fish dishes (I had two because I'm a pescetarian) were not quite on the mark. Nevertheless, we were VERY pleased with our entire experience and will definitely return again.
