Hugo's Frog Bar & Chop House - Des Plaines
My wife and I was celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary by spending at River's Casino and made dinner reservation at Hugo's Frog Bar & Chop House. We arrived at the resturant a hour earlier for dinner reservation and was seated immediately. We informed our server we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the service and attention she paid us was outstanding. The food was delicious and my wife and I are truly endedted to the entire staff who made our wedding celebration a night to to remeber. And we made a promise to definitely return for an encore. Once again thank you Hugo's Frog Bar & Chop House for a wonderful evening.
All good but not for an intimate dinner. Too loud!!
Too loud, noise level needs improvement.
Excellent food. Attentive and professional service. High noise level.
If you want a good steak and don’t mind paying an arm and a leg for it, this place might be for you. The steaks are top quality and are are enormous. The side dishes (al la carte of course) are as big as the steaks - the twice baked potato we had would have fed a table of four easily. And we saw an ice cream cake dessert served at the table next to ours that would have kept a dozen kids busy for quite a while. The atmosphere was energetic to say the least. We had trouble talking across the table at times. Unfortunately, we were seated in a table along the wall that was very drafty and he’d to have our coats on for most of the meal (our fault for not asking to be relocated). The bottom line is a very expensive, but good (not great) meal in a drafty, noisy and classy place.
As always dinner was outstanding and we will be back soon!
Dined alone while in the Chicago area for business. Good service and decent quality food overall. I was torn between a steak or seafood. Asked the waiter about the quality of their crab cakes, he said they were great....should have gone for the steak.
Had mussels for an app and they were wonderful, skip the crab cakes!
Excellent service and steak medallions! Thanks!
It’s one of my favorite places. The dinning room is small so noise and space are always difficult.
Service was excellent Disappointed with my lobster order but they took it off the Bill!
Being they only have 2 sizes big and huge!
It was dryed out ordered the smaller version of huge size! Steak and crab legs were out standing!
Found out you can order Oysters Rockefeller wich was a treat as well! Creme brulee was awesome!
Friendly service, quick seating, delicious food
What more can you ask?
Great service and amazing food. Their side dishes and desserts are huge so make sure to get them with the intention of sharing...thankfully our waiter warned us of this ahead of time
Everything was perfect service and hospitality were everything and more
Great food and service but expensive. Expect $100+ per person with a few bottles of wine closer to $150
Service was exceptional. Waiters were very attentive and we didn’t have to ask for anything. Water was constantly refilled and our tablecloth cleared of crumbs.
The manager came to our table to inquire about the service and food. The second time was a bit much when he left his business card with us.
Love Hugo’s - this time the lobster salad wasn’t as good as in past experiences nor was the Tuna salad. In both cases, there wasn’t much fish on the plate as we’ve enjoyed in prior visits. Not sure why but we will be back - it’s one of our favorite stops!
My husband and I are in a pleasure trip connecting through O’Hare. This restaurant was rated very highly. The service was excellent. It was so nice having a booth and we could talk! I was so much looking forward to the lobster roll in the east coast! The lobster was wet and rubbery, and spicy! I was so much looking forward to it and disappointed. I didn’t order the lobster salad because it stayed it was spicy, no where on the sandwich did it say it. My husband had the barley soup which was very salty. The food we ordered was disappointed! Especially considering the ratings and price
Filet sliders, service and atmosphere all the top. Everything just perfect.
Relatively loud. Could not hold conversation. Had party of 6
Second experience at this location. Service is always impeccable. Food top notch. All items cooking to perfection. For a special occasion and high level meals this is the place to come.
It was our first time coming to this restaurant and having frog legs...they were so tender and perfect! Also loved the rest of the food, my husband and I shared a 14oz filet mignon, Brussels sprouts, mashed potato and creamed spinach. The steak sauce was amazing too. We were about to finish and the server came with a seasonal no bake cheesecake free and huge that was so good and sweet of them...Great food and big servings and great service!!
My girlfriends and I were celebrating a birthday. The food and service was great. We were happy with our experience.
Hugo’s was my favorite place for celebrations. Service and food was good as usual. I was inform this time that they don’t do anything for celebration and don’t offer small desserts with candles.... For $200 lunch for 3 people I expect a little extra to made the person of honor feel special.
We were treated extremely well! Food was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.
Great food and great service
Eugene is an exceptional server. We are putting Hugo’s on our monthly rotation. I highly recommend the steaks. Seared and cooked beautifully. Thanks for an amazing meal.
Hands down our favorite place. A scale all the way, never disappoints.
the grilled salmon was done extremely well. i have been to many restruants and the samon was often hard crusted simply because of hard frying. In the frog bar, the salmon was not only soft cooked,but well done inside and and also the portion was larger than many places had it served. the beef barley soup was also better than soup i have had in other good restruants. the spinach,, although well prepared, should be served without the stems. The cheesecake was good also
Fantastic meal and service. We went 2 days in a row and they always take care of us
Tommy, the waiter, is the best! The food was prepared perfectly.
Great service, great food. Could use a decor update but it has that old school feel and I'm okay with that.
What an AMAZING place to dine ! ... When in the Chicago area Hugo Frog's Bar & Chop House if a MUST VISIT ! ... You will be Amazed Too !
Great steaks, excellent service, giant desserts. A little noisy
Great food and great waiter ! Can’t wait to return !
My birthday dinner ended with two attempts at a fish entrees. The sea bass instead if buttery was stringy, next the salmon was over cooked at fishy smelling.
I guess a steak house is not the place for fish...
We had a terrific waiter, Walter. He was so attentive and personable. My husband and I were very impressed. Food was amazing. Oysters were very good, the tuna and salmon very good. Love the brocolini and brussel sprouts. Great time. We will be back.
Our server, Gina, was outstanding. She made us feel so much at home that we surely overstayed our welcome. Frog Legs, Crab Cakes, Bookbinder Soup, Lobster Bisque...all outstanding. Salmon, Shrimp and Steak...Incredible. WE'LL BE BACK!
The steak was over cooked. Ordered it medium and came out burned, tough, and almost inedible.
The preponderant feeling we had as we left Hugo's was that were were glad we came.
Hugo's wait staff are probably it's greatest asset--greater even than the food, which is wonderful.
We arrived at 4:00, so we had our pick of seating. Because of the casino it was already a bit noisy. Alas, by the time we finished dinner the room was full, and it had gotten noisier by the minute. One irony is that the better the food, generally speaking, the more we value intimacy. Hugo's stands as a good example of this, as it was difficult to fully enjoy the great food & service.
Nothing's perfect, and Hugo's treated us to a very good dinner.
