    We have loved Pago on 9th for years. So excited to have a Pago option downtown. The menu was similar but had more of a tapas flavor to it...but not too much. We shared the Cauliflower Carbonara and the Beet Salad. Both were amazing and unique. I love the chef at Pago (same for both locations). Always coming up with unique twists on some traditional concepts. Toasted quinoa in the beet salad amps up the experience. Taking cauliflower and making it such that you want to lick the serving plate is pretty impressive. I finished with the pork tenderloin. Once again, so much flavor and served with what I think was pureed sweet potato and crispy brussel sprouts. But not 'normal' brussel sprouts...I don't know how they can crisp up individual leaves like they do. The bacon wrapping added the perfect flavor for the tenderloin, but was too much for me to eat. I just removed it and enjoyed the perfect residual flavor on the tenderloin. I washed it all down with a great Paso Robles Cab at the recommendation of Austin who was one of the better waiters I have had in SLC. Knowledgeable, friendly, informative, and not stuffy.

    Great restaurant, lovely experience. The wine list is thoughtfully curated and the owner is passionate about each and every bottle on the list. The management was able to converse with us and answer our questions about the list and we appreciated the generous service. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.

    Our experience overall was mediocre at best. The food was disappointing. The Caesar salad was overdressed and the main course of fish and chips weren’t crispy and the fish didn’t taste like fresh halibut. The server was OK but the salad came out with the entrees. I will not go back. Too bad because I had high hopes.

    We went to Pago on Main for the first time on a Saturday night at 6 pm. I was expecting a nice upscale restaurant but was sorely disappointed. After walking in, there is a nice exposed kitchen in the middle but that’s where it stops. The tables and chairs looked like an afterthought and a very cheap afterthought at that. I’ve dined at fine restaurants literally around the world and this atmosphere is not it. The food was excellent and I have no complaints about that. However the lack of water and forgetting to bring a drink for 20 minutes until we asked is not good. The server neglected to clear empty appetizer plates off our table so we ate with the dirty dishes sitting there. When our entrees were brought, we had to use the same silverware as for our first course. We were not offered steak knives despite ordering meat. The noise level was very high and I had trouble hearing. I have to admit that I was unpleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Probably the only way I would go back is for the extensive wine list. The food was great but the lack of service and the poor atmosphere ruined it for me.

    I have been a fan of Pago on 9th & 9th for a long time. We wanted to try the one on Main with friends from out of town. The service really left a lot to be desired. Our order was not taken for almost 30 minutes after arriving. Our server never refilled water glasses, was unresponsive to one guest’s statement regarding some tasteless iced tea, and would disappear for long periods of time without checking back in. The whole experience was very disappointing. We went next door to Whiskey Street after for a drink and the contrast was stark—great cocktails and service. I hope Pago can improve things at the location on Main.

    Food was good and they were flexible with the menu, as they were out of chicken for the salad but substituted a baked chicken for the same price. The fish and chips were good but not great, for the price. Overall the service was ok, maybe the waitress was having a bad day, she was not very friendly and hard to hear. The rest of the staff was very friendly. I will definitely come back. I did think it was odd that my fish and chips came out minutes ahead of the other entrée.

    Pago must mean great food in some language. It does on Main Street. The food was excellent; the service the same. Well-paced, and hot. Thank you staff. The only issue I have with Pago are the acoustics. I get they are in the food business not the ambience business but one can't get away with huge noisy loud rooms anymore. Spend a few bucks and get some competent acoustic assistance. Shouting at the people at your table disguised a conversation sucks. This will not deter us from returning although parking at times could be a pain.

    This place sounded great on OpenTable...not. The service was abysmal, and everything on the menu was expensive. When the food finally did arrive it was over seasoned, way too much salt. Which was unfortunate, since I couldn't get any water. Why was my glass allowed to ever run dry? Thankfully I didn't die of thirst. I seldom stiff wait staff on the tip since they work so hard, but I had to search my soul on this one....I think the waitress should consider a different line of work. And bread...is it too much to ask to bring bread, and maybe a little olive oil and cracked pepper? Seriously, you couldn't pay me to eat at this restaurant ever again, good thing I am not a local.
