We had a delightful dinner. The food was outstanding, but our server Julian really made the evening special. Julian is a first class waiter.

Great food and drinks located inside Rivers Casino. Some food portion particularly side dishes was enough for 2. Highly recommended.

Everything was well except food wasn't as good as I remembered. My filet was undercooked and under seasoned.

We celebrated a birthday. The minute we walked in, we were greeted by every staff member we encountered.
Our waiter was awesome, the food was excellent, and amazing desserts.
Staff is knowledgeable, answered questions, great presentation on cuts and Australian lobster.

The manager thanked us for dining there and we appreciate the warm hospitality.

Amazing experience from start to finish. We arrived and were seated in a private area which allowed us to have space and accessibility to talk. Customer service was fantastic from explaining the dinner options to constantly check on us. Food was delicious and def great portion to share .

Wow, such a great dinner!! Starting with a top notch martini, then delicious oysters, HUGE shrimp cocktail and yummy lobster bisque. We ordered a lobster tail to split, big and fantastic. Weirdly I was in the mood for a burger which I knew would be amazing, and it was!! They use such high quality beef, it makes a big difference. Service was great, very nice waiter, super attentive on such a busy night. Can’t wait to go back!

The place was great except we felt rushed. The salad came before the appetizer was done and the steak came before the salad was done. The desert menu came a second after the meal was complete but the wine was still in our glass.

I get the idea that you want to turn a table but for a $400 meal you think they wouldn’t rush you.

The service was excellent. The food was a great quality. Preparation on the steak was my only critique. Although it was an excellent medium inside . The outside was beyond blackened and boarded on burnt . Instead of a tasty sear it was not a pleasant taste. Other than that it was a pleasant evening out.

Service was great and food was delicious. I had the petite fillet and it was plenty and I could have cut it with a butter knife it was so tender. The carrot cake is amazing!

Julian was wonderful as a server as always! He remembered the dish he recommended to me last time I was there and it is now my favorite dish. (Sea bass!)

The hosts are always friendly and the food is outstanding, of course.

We were very disappointed in parts of our meal. The macaroni and cheese was delicious! Two of us ordered filet mignon and we were both very disappointed. The outside tasted and looked burnt and the inside was not done. I order my steak medium and it was still red red inside. I had to send it back to be cooked a bit more, which only made the outside taste even more burnt. Two ordered rib eye steaks and thought they were just okay - definitely have had better. The other person had a shrimp dish and said it was fine. The double baked potato was just okay - really just a huge potato, but not much flavor. The ones I make are much better. Even the asparagus was overcooked. I felt that given the quality of the food, it certainly was not worth the hundreds of dollars that it cost for the five of us. Unfortunately, we will not be returning to this restaurant.

one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time , the steak I ordered was done perfectly . My dining companion ordered the salmon and they were equally pleased, we split a double baked potato and broccoli both servings were enough for two people. Our server was attentive , informative and checked on us often . The restaurant is set up in a way that you don’t feel like you are in a casino and the noise level from casino gaming was negligible.

We were there late so it was quite. We have been there earlier and it was louder. I like the ambiance better than Gibson’s in Rosemont. But both places have excellent food.

Hugo’s is always fabulous. It’s a little pricey but that’s what you expect from an upscale restaurant. Oysters were amazing, the king crab just melted in your mouth and the fillet is done to perfection. We can’t beat their waitstaff they get an A+. They are always kind friendly courteous willing to answer questions. I will definitely be back. We’d like to take our employees there once a year for a company dinner.

Hugo’s never fails to impress. Impeccable service, fantastic food and great atmosphere. My wife and I enjoyed a celebratory birthday dinner and were very pleased with the entire experience. We have been to this location several times since opening, and have had the same level of excellence every time. We will be back.

First time to this location. Food was predictable but very good. Very pricey! Downtown prices in a not-so-downtown location. It seemed like it was everyone's birthday that day, what with all "Singing" going on.

The luncheon special grilled faroe was grilled just right. The sauteed spinach was a bit too oily this time around. Ice cream sundae was the bomb!
