Pago Ratings and Reviews

Small plates each had great taste, freshness and size was perfect. The main course was very flavorful without crowding out natural flavor. Spending $18 on a burger - it would have to be worth it- and it was. The burger was flavorful and juicy, with perfect blend for toppings. The pork had a complex full flavor that enhanced the meat and the sides. We will return, more often than we have in the past!

We were a bit bummed about our experience. We have enjoyed Pago a while back and thought it would be great for our 11 year anniversary. Wine was good, lots of options. the menu is limited by design, and that always makes me think each item will be unique, savory and worth the price. We started with the halibut ceviche which was tasty but small (the menu does say it is small plate, so no surprise there). I ordered the squid ink pasta with mussels and calamari. The pasta tasted like shoe laces and the broth was flavorless. My husband ordered the garlic risotto which was good and we kept trading it back and forth to avoid the shoe lace pasta. I just think with so many great dining options in town, everyone has to stay competitive. I am happy to pay top dollar for good food, but I don't think we will be going to Pago again for dinner. Maybe we should try brunch next time.

I had three dishes and tried two wines. The Malbec was unexpectedly from France and disappointed. A Barbera made up for it. The Garlic Scape Risotto and Potato and Fennel chowder were both delicious, although the latter lacked fennel presence. The Halibut ceviche was pretty good for a US restaurant, but a bit "too limey". I do enjoy this place.

Great food and atmosphere. Only issue was we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. There is very little waiting room so this was a bit uncool. I suggest you avoid Friday and Saturday if this would annoy you. But otherwise, this is a great restaurant!

Good food, great service. The Risotto came out "cold" (and I mean cold), so that someone must have been asleep in the kitchen, however, we sent it back and although it took extra time to do it right, they did it right. In the interim, the waitress (she was fantastic) brought out some appetizers and bread to make up for the inconvenience (gratis), and by the time that we were done eating, all was forgiven by the very good food and service.

Pago has become a favorite for my husband and me. We shared the Halibut Ceviche which was wonderful. Very fresh and a lovely blend of flavors. My husband had the pork shoulder dish and was very pleased. My halibut was perfectly cooked and moist. Although Pago has a somewhat limited menu we have always been pleased. The presentation of food is always beautiful.

Amazing dinner at Pago! Our server was great. He was very knowledgable about the menu which was great for a foodie like myself. Love the meal! So fresh and delicious without overwhelming portion sizes. Can't wait to come back!

The meals were very good -risotto with garlic and scapes exceptional; burger was fine but not exceptional for price. Use small plates for small plate orders. Looks lost on large plate. Wine list was pricey and too much California wines.

Went with my chef boyfriend - food was great tasting but our bill was quite a bit for the value of it all. Portions were quite small for the cost. Wine and service was great - kind of wish the indoor lighting was dimmer (it was like diner bright) and there was 0 music playing. Overall, it was good but don't need to go again.

I went to Pago for my birthday with a few friends and was greatly disappointed. The ambience was good with a nice outdoor patio. However, the service was slow and I did not feel welcomed. It seemed that the staff was more interested in chatting with each other than serving the guests. This restaurant is definitely overpriced. I ordered roasted chicken with balsamic reduction, jus, mission figs, and ricotta salata. It was sub par and mediocre at best. The chicken was flavorless and cold. The skin was not crispy. I could have made a far better dish at home. I would not recommend this restaurant.

The main courses were great. But did not enjoy the crudo appetizer. The salad on the appetizer menu was fantastic (can't remember the name). Service is excellent at Pago. I was just not impressed with the appetizers minus the salad.

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.
