    Overall poor experience. We had a reservation and we’re the first people in that morning a party of 2 and a party of 6 came in and we’re sat after us. Both parties received their food before we did. We sat for 45 minutes before we received our appetizer. which was a cold dish.. hard to understand what took so long.. When we talked to the waiter about it she was completely tone deaf. She never apologized for the bad experience and made no effort to make accommodations the make up for it. Then, while I was still eating she brought the check over? I’d barely made it through 1/2 my meal. There was no question about it. The food was good once it finally came but top to bottom - pretty bad experience. We were able to laugh about how bad it was and that was the only good thing that came out of it.

    PagoResponded 6 days agoAnonymous, I'm sorry to hear of your negative experience. I have discussed it with our brunch staff and have scheduled more in-depth training to be done. I hope you can dine with us again soon and experience proper Pago service!

    good service outdoor patio was warm and had a nice ambiance, everything was good except the gnocchi. came out very mush with lack of sauce. i even requested more sauce, sadly did not help the dish. would not recommend

    PagoResponded on January 15, 2023Thank you for your review Dane! I'm sorry to hear of your negative experience with the gnocchi. It is definitely not your traditional gnocchi dish so we understand if it's not for everyone. I'd be happy to send you a gift card or do a partial refund. I hope you give us another try sometime in the future!

    We have enjoyed Pago many times and this particular dinner was excellent. Our waitress was working with a large table and the manager visited our table of two with a friendly smile and took our order. We greatly appreciated how the manager understood that we could be waiting a while because the large table was taking up time. Next, our waitress was equally engaging and thanked us for our patience. The food was superb, atmosphere cozy and just right on a cold Saturday night. Pago is an SLC treasure. The mushrooms were my favorite.

    David, our server was fantastic. The food was no less superb. Original flavors and the mushroom appie, and Faroe Islands salmon with David’s suggestion of Russian Valley white wine was incredible. Music was audible and actually really good. Will be back soon as this was our first time after seeing Pago talked about in Salt Lake local rag.

    Pago has a brief menu, but it covers the bases. We ordered beef stroganoff, pasta Bolognese, shrimp with vegetables and a salmon. All entrees were excellent. Also recommend the mushroom app. - light and delicious. Highly recommended.

    I had pretty high hopes for Pago, having heard wonderful things about its farm-to-table approach and elevated but casual dining experience... but it fell short of what I was expecting. A quick caveat: this was December 26th, the observed day for Christmas in 2022 so the place was likely understaffed, which probably had an affect on my party's experience. The experience: My party was seated outdoors in a corner away from the heating elements. The hostess was initially kind and dismissed our request to sit inside instead. The server started off attentive but, after our initial order, we were left completely alone with no updates until, after 40 minutes, the server buzzed our table to say "sorry for the wait." It ended up being another 10-15 minutes after that that our single round of entrees finally arrived (no appetizers, no drinks besides water and a couple of glasses of wine across the table). The food: The burger was good, but the bacon was limp and the bun struggled to stand up to the juiciness of the beef and cheese. It's a common problem, but one more for a pub than a high middle tier restaurant. The fries were great and portion size was good, overall. Around a 4/5. The gem lettuce salad was interesting and had popcorn to provide some additional substance beyond the lettuce itself, but it overpowered the rest of the salad. Probably like a 3/5. The bolognese tasted like it came from a jar. Overly salty and acidic, it lacked depth. The pasta it came with was fine and portion size was fine. I think it'd be a 2/5. The short rib stroganoff's sauce was thin and bland, with the short rib meat itself stringy and tougher than would normally be expected. The pasta it came with and portion size were fine. I'm thinking it would be a 3/5. Overall: I won't be suggesting Pago to friends for dinner, though I'd probably meet someone there if they suggested it for lunch.

    Not our first time to Pago but it feels like it since the menu always changes. The food is always fresh and delicious. Staff is kind and helpful. They know the menu and are excited to tell you about any of the dishes. We even sat outside and it was like 20 degrees but the patio enclosure and heaters/fireplace did a great job of keeping us warm.

    We flew into Salt Lake on the way to a wedding in Provo. We had a quick dinner with my husband’s cousin soon after landing and he suggested Pago. There are two locations but the one on 9th was a few blocks from the cousins place. Dinner was great! We ordered family style starting with the mushrooms, cheese plate and the beets. The sourdough bread was excellent. Then i had the salmon, hubby had the Argentinian shrimp and cousin had the gnocchi. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Overall bill was very reasonable for three grown men for dinner.

    Bread appetizer was scorched on the bottom, and the cheese appetizer came out significantly later. The gnocchi was shockingly bland and pasty. The salmon was slightly fishy and overcooked and the accompanying vegetables were inconsistently cooked with some being so firm they were inedible. Normally, I’d have said something to the server, but we were celebrating a birthday, and I didn’t want to make the evening about my marginal experience. As we were finishing desert, we were told we needed to leave because they needed the table. I’d understand that if we were lingering, but their service set the pace for the meal, so that was annoying. Won’t be back.

    We had a burger and an argentine shrimp dish. The burger was fine but over priced. The shrimp dish was very under-seasoned. The Brussels Sprout starter was good and best thing we ate. Good service but really below average food.

    Menu was different from website although that’s not uncommon. Appetizers large and excellent. Mains disappointing. Short rib stroganoff was underseasoned and seemed like a nice idea not thought through. Kimchi pork was very flavorful but the pork should have been tender and definitely was not.

    Came for first visit on rec from daughter (a private chef). Found the menu selection minimal. Gem salad underdressed, lacked flavor and only popcorn as an addition. Shrimp main dish had a flavorless dahl beneath. Overall, not impressed. Waitress not remarkable, minimal service. Is it because we didn't order alcohol?

    Felt like the brunch was just ok. Compared to the dinner menu, the brunch was just ok. When I see braised beets with bacon, I wouldn’t expect both of those things cold. Everything else was just ok. They could do much better.

    Came here with my boyfriend for the first time as this is one of his most highly rated restaurants in Salt Lake! Absolutely was not disappointed in our selections. I got the Argentinian Shrimp and it was perfectly cooked. Probably was of the best things I’ve ever eaten, and I would eat it everyday if I could! We had a great experience!
