Hugo's Cellar?

Going with some guys in June, curious your thoughts, thanks!

  1. I don't really think this is a 'going with some guys' kind of place.
    They give the woman a red rose, old school romantic place, which is good and my lucky roulette table sits at the entrance.

      Beach Chick is right. It's fairly elegant dining and a bit pricey. I'm not a salad fan but their Caesar (sp) is superb,

    2. Golden Steer would be more of a guys place. Have not been in years but it used to be good. Not Hugo's too romantic.

      1. The food is mediocre regardless of who you are with.

          Can I ask what was wrong with it? I will be going there next month and would like a heads up as to what I should or should not order

            It's really old-school, and can be appreciated for that. Good cocktails, lots of tableside preps. You have to go with that flow to enjoy yourself there, and it can be a lot of fun if you can dig the vibe non-ironically. The food was good, circa 1958, total blast from the past.

        2. There is nothing wrong with it, it is just a girly place to take your wife or a date. Women get a long stem red rose to take home. It is like the old days when every hotel had a "gourmet" place, like the old House of Lords at the Sahara. We always get the duck which they do a good job with. They have a salad cart and make the salad tableside. They do some flaming things. I would not go there with the guys. Maybe Liberace and his boy friend might have been comfortable there, but which one would get the rose? lol.

          1. Was just at Andiamo's at the "D" downtown; much better for a group of guys, and actually better in terms in food and service. Still an 'old school' vibe, but clearly set up for groups (lots of larger tables).
