This place is the real deal...a high end version of Spanish cuisine that you will long remember after you have left. From the cocktails to the desserts you will not be disappointed!

Upscale authentic Mexican food, marvelous drinks, and perfect service make Hugo's a mandatory stop for a visitor. I am just envious Dallas does not have anything that comes even close.

I started with the Queso Flameado which was really good. Theirs has chilis, mushrooms, and steak it. For dinner I had the barbacoa - theirs is lamb. It was really good. I've had eaten at various nationally acclaimed restaurants and most have had an air of pretentiousness. Hugo's, which is owned by a James Beard nominated chef, was very comfortable.... More

Sunday a.m. Brunch with family from Georgia. They were so impressed with the authentic Mexican recipes & flavors that reminded them of their childhoods. All brunch items were most delicious & plentiful. A Hugo's is desperately desired in Atlanta!!!

Near Downtown on Westheimer, Valet parking only in their lot. Not your average Tex-Mex menu, but really unusual choices all with a Mexican origin. The Patio dining area is lovely and away from the street noise. The prices aren't cheap, but for a romantic dinner or an unusual dining experience it is a good choice.

I loved the menu offered here and everything was delicious! The stuffed poblanos were to die for! We received excellent service and were seated right away with our reservation. Our table of 10 was very pleased.

Hugo's has done an outstanding job in providing authentic Mexico food. The choices, flair, and flavors are exquisite. From the taquitos and empanadas as starters, lamb chops and chille rellinos as enters, to coffee olla and churrisos as desserts, Chef Hugo and his team did it right. The atmosphere is warm and lively, and the staff and service were friendly... More

This restaurant is overrated, food took a good 25-30 minutes to arrive, nothing really special, the only nice dish was the oxtail soup
