Terrible experience at Pago. It took over an hour and a half to receive our food which, in my case, was 9 tortellini. Overpriced to be sure and not particularly impressive - a disappointment, especially given the occasion was a business dinner.

Pago does not disappoint. Had a friend in town from Long Island and her and her beau thought it was a charming, neighborhood awesome place. the service was amazing - as usual... and the food was also delicious. they were super sensitive to one persons fish allergy... and explained the dishes as they arrive... really such a lovely place in Salt Lake. Worth the price.

we were there for brunch ~noon.
service poor: never checked on us except to take order and deliver the food. refilled our water until we requested.
caprese salad: disappointing as tomatoes had no flavor or color.
pago burger: tasty
french fries: burnt
shrimp tacos: disappointing as tortillas were store-bought, mass produced and were cold. shrimp overcooked.

Great service, nice ingredients but terrible entrees. Tri tip was tough and no flavor. Risotto was full garlic. Pasta was undercooked and sparse. Cocktails, starters And service were the best part. Will not return.

Overall an excellent dining experience. We enjoyed the short pours whic allowed us to taste a wider range of wines. All of the food was very good, but the standout for the evening was the poligamy porter chocolate tart. I suggest pairing with the colheito.

One of my favorite places for lunch. Eclectic creative cuisine in an urban casual ambience. I got the beet starter which has been reinvented several times and is always delicious with a complex variety of textures and tastes. I wanted the soup, but it wasn't available so I asked my server for suggestions. She tuned in to a light selection and recommended the shrimp tacos, with perfectly cooked shrimp and great topping choices.

Bad overall, We waited about 40 minutes for our foods. It was not busy at all. Other people who order after us got all of their foods before we did. They even ordered the same things we did. There were no apologies. I asked my burger to be cooked medium but what I got was well-done. I probably will not go back.

We love Pago, but this was the first time that we have had food there that has ranked in our top 3 foods ever eaten. I wanted to order a bowl of that risotto and eat it until I made myself sick. Always a fantastic experience at Pago.

My second time to Pago. First time was life changing; one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've ever had (fast/knowledgeable/friendly service, freshest food, innovative flavors, quiet/comfortable atmosphere). My wife and I couldn't wait to tell friends about it and recommend it. We went back a few days ago. Supposedly the executive chef changed in April. The experience was clearly different and, because we were so high on the first experience, an unfortunate disappointment. Service was slower, portions were smaller (particularly on the BBQ'd beets), less energy and excitement among the staff, the menu presentation was crumpled and tired, nothing very exciting on the desert menu. This was sad to see. We hope it was just an off night. Pago is a great restaurant and we don't want it to lose its charm. I'm not one to write critical reviews, but I felt in this case I needed to because I want so badly for Pago to remain what it once was and I hope by writing this someone notices the slide and turns it around.

Amazing as always. We brought our family to Pago because they don't eat out much and rarely at good restaurants. They asked for an affordable fine dining experience. They were speechless! The best food they have ever eaten. They loved that it was fresh and locally sourced. Thanks for making fine dining accessible to everyone and for promoting local products. Cheers.

I went there for lunch and the food was excellent (I had a cold carrot/ginger soup and the Pork Sugo) and the staff was very friendly and attentive. They even graciously put up with my friend and me chatting for three hours. I do feel a little bit bad about doing that to them :-/
The portion sizes are pretty small -- I was tempted to order two of everything. Instead I took really small bites. Fortunately, each minibite was bursting with flavor. FWIW, I'm not a glutton; I'm easily overwhelmed by monstrous Cheesecake Factory-sized meals. But after the soup, entree, and dessert courses, I was still a little bit hungry. If the portions were 1.5 - 2x larger, I think I would have been completely satisfied. My friend had the shrimp tacos, which appeared to be more filling than the sugo (but wow -- the sugo was soooo good!). I'll happily go there again.

Our server had no personality. And being in SLC alcohol isn't a big thing but when people come to visit and want a drink and are paying $13-$15 for a drink it should have a good amount of alcohol in it... The dishes were pretty but could taste better
