Food was delicious and service was wonderful; place was packed on a Friday night so make sure you have a reservation on the weekends! The restaurant is loud , tables are close together and crowded but it feels like it should be loud and crowded - it's that kind of place. Good vibe, fun, and great food!

Our son selected Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House to celebrate his 12th birthday after we visited a few years ago. We made reservations in advance, but to our surprise last night the staff seated us in the "Winston Churchill elevator room" upon our arrival. As history buffs, this was an unexpected delight. The elevator is a cozy wooden room that is perfect for four. The meal was outstanding, every dish was tasty. Their famous frog legs, Alaskan crab legs, firecracker shrimp, and salmon were delicious. The entire experience was outstanding...thank you so much for the surprise seating! Thanks for a wonderful dinner experience!

Had a very nice dinner on a busy Saturday night. The place was hopping (no pun intended)! Started with a Manhattan that was terrific, very strong and potent. The steak and crab cake was very good. The filet could have used just a little salt but it was cooked perfectly. The crab cake had a little more breading in the mixture than what I'm accustomed to but it was still very good.

I have been to Hugo's a few times over the years while in town for business. This visit was with coworkers. All 5 of us were very pleased - entrees were filet mignon, sea bass and ribeye - all delicious. Servers were attentive. Hugo's is fine dining in a casual atmosphere. The prices are like most nice restaurants in Chicago - higher than my city but that's the norm.

My husband and I had a fabulous experience for dinner at Hugo's. Requested a booth in the notes on Open Table and Hugo's was the first high end restaurant that met this request without being reminded. Service and ambiance is fantastic! I had the crab and my husband had the salmon....not a drop was left on our plates. We highly recommend Hugo's and hope to return next time we are in town.
