I've been eating at Hugo's for years, first at the West Hollywood location and now at the Studio City location. Every meal is fresh and delicious. I have two stand-by favorites for dinner: the Mexican salad and the meatloaf. You can never go wrong with comfort food and I recently had the meatload with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. When...

What a wonderful meal to have on our last night in the US (returning to Australia after a 3 week vacation). Our meal was delicious, fresh and very flavoursome. Very friendly and happy staff, great service. Highly recommend.

My husband and I were back in our former stomping grounds and had to enjoy brunch at a great place with a variety of interesting options. The parking lot was almost full but we found a space and were seated inside fairly quickly on a warm Friday morning. Even though it had been a while, I was happy to detect... More

I visit this restaurant whenever my palate desires a meal of a different style. The food is healthy and flavorful. The staff are nice and the restaurant décor is welcoming and homey. Many of the dishes can be prepared with a non-meat options for those of us who prefer it. Aside from the food, there is a wide variety of... More

My friend and I visited Hugos for lunch and were both amazed and overwhelmed by the variety of dishes available. They cater to special diets such as vegan and/or gluten free. All of it had a good presentation. They also have a variety of teas to choose from that most other restaurants don't. We had the vegetable stew which had... More

I was recently in the Los Angeles area, visiting friends, and decided to stop at Hugo's for lunch. They have quite a varied menue. Everything from burgers and wraps to breakfast and salads. I decided to try the Rubin sandwich. Now keep in mind that I'm originally from the NY area and a Rubin is supposed to be made with... More

Been a Hugo's fan for decades both in Weho and in Valley. Haven't had a bad meal yet. Staff always friendly. Good quality ingredients and good cooks in the kitchen.

I visited here with family and one member is vegan. The waitress was great, she had a fun personality and was attentive without being in your face. The variety of food on offer was extensive and they could be tailored to individual needs - allergies, vegan or vegetarian all catered for. The coffee was plentiful and nice. I had the... More

We're so used to going to restaurants, even "vegetarian-friendly" ones, where there are really only a couple of not-meat choices: for instance replacing meat in any dish with tofu. Not at Hugo's. There are many, many unique non-meat dishes as well as some good meat ones, too. I had an Indian plate that was a special right now, not on... More
