Diner Reviews
  • "I would highly recommend this restaurant. The service was friendly and excellent. The food was outstanding; kale Caesar salad was awesome and the local trout was best I have ever had. Great food!"

  • "Pago is one of my favorite restaurants in Salt Lake. The food is always exceptional and the menu is unique. We tried the carrot tasting appetizer this time just because it seemed unusual. (Neither of us particularly likes carrots.) Of course, it was fabulous! Pago is highly recommended."

  • "Wonderful, fresh, farm-to-table restaurant with innovative takes on traditional dishes. One of the best dining experiences we have recently had in SLC. Table was ready on time. Our waitress was prompt, knowledgeable and made good recommendations and the food was superb. All of this is in an atmosphere that is relaxed and casual. It was truly a great experience. Highly recommend."

  • "This was the first time visiting. We were surprised and happy with our Daughters choice. We loved the food. Some of the best we have had. Our server was exceptional, we loved him. Every thing was very clean and we had cloth napkins, both important. We will come back on another special occasion."

  • "I went with my sister who lives in SLC, and has eaten at Pago many times. Her experiences mirror mine, which has me scratching my head..What is the big deal? Mediocre food, a waitress who talked incredibly fast so we missed all the intricacies of food preparation/availability. Food was good, but not great. Chairs are tinny and uncomfortable. Very impersonal. There are other places in SLC that are better. Will not return when I visit."

  • "Small menu with varied options and a good wine selection. Farm to table is wonderful, and tastes were fresh. Food was very well prepared. Size of portions can be quite small, even for restaurants of this type (particularly fish dish). Very enjoyable, but for the price, I might not return so soon."

  • "I read some of the reviews and was slightly disheartened to hear that some individuals had a negative experience here. I had quite the opposite. Our server was very attentive and the food came out delicious. Both of us got the Pago burger and it was excellent. Both were cooked to perfection and the truffle frites on the side were absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this dish to anyone looking for a great burger!"

  • "I've always passed by Pago on my way to the Coffee Garden and wondered what it'd be like to dine at a restaurant so highly rated by OpenTable. After going for a birthday brunch, I must conclude... It's nothing special. The atmosphere of the place is, as they promote, 'eco-chic': an open kitchen, business-persons chattering incessantly in the background (to the point of "obnoxiously noisy"), jean aprons. The entrees were horrendously overpriced and underwhelming in texture and flavour (we had to pay for soup starters)--interesting concept for surf & turf, poor execution. The burger was dreadful, the wine list was disappointing, and our server was unintelligible. The saving grace was dessert and French press coffee. I won't be back."

  • "Such a superb experience. We were there for a special occasion and the food was delicious as always and I have to say the service was the greatest."

  • "My husband has had a lot of burgers at some of the best restaurants and he says this is best burger and frites he has ever had. I had the pasta and loved it as well. We will be back."

  • "The food was awesome! I loved the food. The only issue that I had with Pago is that our waitress was not very good. We went on a Saturday around 12:30. The restaurant was not very busy, there were plenty of empty tables. We did not see our waitress for probably 20 minutes after I had give her my credit card to pay for the meal. We only saw her two other times, once to take the drink order and once to take our food order. She also was not very friendly. I will try it again as the food was great. I hope I get better service."

  • "My second visit to Pago for brunch on a Saturday around noon and had an excellent experience. Their food is superb. Had to wait a little longer this time, but it's well worth the wait."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Although several blocks from the 'tourist' centre of Salt Lake City (i.e. Temple Square etc), this restaurant is definitely worth a 10 mins taxi ride. The food was creative & delicious with organic ingredients that are locally derived, the service friendly & attentive & it is obvious that the staff work together as an efficient team. So much better & fresher than the standard 'American' fare that is prevalent near the city centre. It seems to be very popular with the local residents (usually a good indication of quality dining) so you must book in advance to be sure of a table."

  • "Delicious food, beautifully presented. Eclectic list of wines by the glass was unexpectedly perfect. The decor is funky but the only problem is the chairs outside looked like they were going to be comfortable but in fact were very uncomfortable otherwise perfect dining experience."

  • "Most enjoyable dining experience with great friends. Service was superb. Food most excellent!"

  • "Pago is a neighborhood favorite of ours. We are regulars for "meatless" Mondays, where Pago adds 3 or 4 different vegetarian specials to the menu. The menu is small, interesting, and changes regularly. They try to use seasonal and local ingredients when they can and it shows in the freshness of the food. They always have interesting starters, try the carrot plate as a great salad alternative. The chicken, pork and fish dishes are always nicely prepared, they often add a little ethnic twist. Like the menu, the wine list is limited, but carefully chosen. Enjoy!"

  • "Pago has a very small menu that features some special offerings. Prices are a little high and the dining areas are a little cramped and noisy. We were given a subpar table by the door and not offered the patio. We had a cheerful waiter, but the timing of items from the kitchen and bar marred the overall experience. Although there are some nice menu items, there are superior restaurants for foodies in SLC."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Although our wine was great, when we received the bill we didn't realize that each glass was $19.00. We live in Park City and that's high for even the 5 star resort hotels! It was the only pinot option and there were 2 prices per glass- apparently one is for a tasting pour and one is for the full… If we return we will bring our own wine as we could have had a really great bottle for the prince we paid for 4 glasses. Food was incredible as was the service. Recommend highly."

  • "Inspired presentation of well conceived menu items. Terrific service!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had a wonderful cheese plate that was both creative and tasty, with raw honey and jam on the side. The smoked mussels on my main course (surf and turf) were interesting, however I would not eat tons of them. The deep fried pork belly was wonderful, as expected."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Upon entering the retaurant we requested a booth. The server checked with the manager and told us booths were for parties of 4 or more. As we dined we noticed a party of two seated in a booth. As the only person of color in the restaurant I was highly offended. The manager came out at the end of our meal and apoligized and said the server was not correct in the information she provided about the seating restrictions. Needless to say I will not be going back to Pago."

  • "Have dined here 4 to 5 times. Have not had anything but a great experience. Staff is very competent and friendly. Wine list and capability among strongest in SLC. Grab help from Evan for an extended experience."

  • "Pago is one of my favorite SLC restaurants. It's a given that the food will always be excellent. I love their wine selections and how the wine list constantly changes. The service is always top notch as well."

  • "My pork tenderloin was a bit salty, but still great. The fish and wine was fantastic. Always a great time, but expect to spend ~$60 per person"

  • "I've lived in Utah since 1993 and travel quite a bit for work. This is the best overall meal I've had in Utah. We had the chilled soup, smoked beets w bbq (phenomenal), asparagus w mushrooms (awesome), artichokes with farrow (perfectly balanced), sea bass, and bacon wrapped pork loin. This place is great! Bay area quality right here in Utah. I'd skip the desserts next time, the deconstruction didn't work for me."

  • "Last night was our second visit to Pago. As with the first, we were promptly greeted and taken to our reserved table that was away from traffic. Our server was courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive. Our starters included a berry salad that was perfection only to be topped by the gnocchi with tender baby peas, blanched almonds and a light yet smoky sauce. "

  • "I travel for a living so I eat at many restaurants. One thing about this restaurant is it has great reviews online. The plate presentation of every meal was amazing. While on the other hand, each meal lacked flavor. "
