We rate the 9 course tasting menu as one of the best dining experiences we've had. We liked the constant variety. The dishes were expertly prepared and not overly clever. Most were fish or vegetable. The one beef course was delicious, too. The finishing tiny desserts and chocolates were perfect. Service was professional and friendly. The restaurant can get noisy but to the end of our visit, it quieted down. We could appreciate the old school R&B music mix. If you're in Portland or visiting, make a reservation at Hugo's.

Chose Hugo's for our anniversary dinner. Have been to most restaurants on the area, but always hesitated going here. So glad we went. Probably the tastiest and most interesting meal we've had in Portland. Although full, conversation was easy and music was pleasant and upbeat in the background. Ordered from menu rather than chefs tasting menu. I would order the black bass to share again. Although busy, course timing allowed for a relaxed evening. Very professional waitstaff around just the right amount of time. You must order a dessert...what a surprise with the blueberry muffin. Great bar and reasonable wine list. Planning our next visit.

Totally enjoyable meal at Hugo's last night. Everything we ordered was beautifully presently and carefully prepared. Sitting at the bar is a treat as the kitchen is open and you can watch them preparing some of the dishes. Portions aren't huge but the flavors are wonderful.

The tasting menus are the way to go here - just fabulous renditions (seafood on our last visit) of amazingly fresh products. This kitchen takes it self seriously, and the things that come out of it are memorable. We went twice, seafood both times, and weren't disappointed.

Our expectations were not very high based on the reviews and we left disappointed. The food and service just don't inspire and feels mostly like an ego trip of the chefs. An unknowledgeable and inattentive server added to a negative experience. The night before we dined at Tempo Dulu, an Asian fine dining restaurant, where the entire experience was equal to some of the top establishments in our hometown New York City. So perhaps it was just more difficult to impress us and would we evaluated the restaurant differently if we hadn't dined at Portland's finest the night before. However borderline arrogance is never a good thing in a restaurant.
