We discovered Hugo's on a recommendation from our tour guide and it was possibly the best tip we received. When you get to the casino, don't worry if you think you are going to a dodgy downstairs restaurant - it is worth going down those stairs!

Hugo's is an old style restaurant from years gone by that has retained it's charm and style without becoming cheesy or dingy. As mentioned in other reviews the ladies receive a single red rose on arrival which is a very sweet gesture The waiters are all polite and keen to serve without being pushy or more interested in their tip. We were offered the house martinis and decided to give them a try - and they were divine. I had a mango martini and my husband had an apple one. Both were really fruity and the addition of the other "half" of the drink in a little jug surrounded by ice meant we actually got two drinks for the price of one. The meal itself initially looked expensive for the entree but as the price includes a personally prepared salad from the buffet trolley, a delicious steak cooked to perfection and plenty of side vegetables, an amuse bouche and strawberry and figs dipped in chocolate served with cream, the price was very reasonable. We didn't need a starter or dessert and couldn't finish all the food we were offered.

Our tour guide had said this was a restaurant families come to year after year and that survives on recommendation alone - no advertising. Having been here, I can see exactly why this is the case and would definitely come back here if our travels ever bring us through Vegas again. We would never have dared go down the stairs without the recommendation but now we have done so we have been telling everyone about it.

My wife and I have dined here for 25 years. Came the day after our wedding and on our 25th anniversary. Same waiter, same sommelier. That kind of stability is what makes this place so good. Service, food and atmosphere. Can't go wrong.

Hugo's is located in the Four Queen's Hotel in downtown Las Vegas. Hugo's offers an intimate and elegant setting for couples, groups, or a girls night out. The manager greets you upon entering and every lady is given a red rose. Waiters are friendly, knowledgeable, and cater to your every need. If you're a wine lover the sommelier has a nice selection to offer. Salads are prepared table side, so the ingredients are fresh. One nice touch is you're given a sorbet before the entrée is served. I had the veal chop which was fantastic, two friends ordered the seafood trio, and someone ordered the prime rib which was outstanding. No need to order dessert because they provide a plate of chocolate covered strawberries, apricots and figs.

We love Hugo's and Sommelier John and Barkeep Dean. This is a true, quality Vegas Gourmet Room in the best meaning of the tradition. In this restaurant we have met and made friends with more (former) strangers who love Hugo's than any other establishment. Not many places offer the chance to meet, learn about, and get to know others of your same passion. Whether for cocktails or dining, Hugo's is the favorite of this couple, married and visiting Vegas, over 20 years.

This was the best experience, food and ambience we've ever had. The staff was impeccable to the salad man to our waiter. I can't wait to come back. My husband's boss recommended that we eat here, and it is a must when you are in Vegas! We will be back. The portions were very large and for a good price. Our dessert was perfect for my husband's birthday. We were treated like gold when we were here!
