    Food and service were amazing! Our server “Silver” was amazing, and even gave us some words of affirmation and positivity before we left. Who doesn’t need more of that in our lives?!

    Excellent food! We tried the burger, meatballs, baby kale salad and bread pudding and loved it all! Bathrooms were kind of dismal, tho. My friend said, “I’d take clean over fancy any day.” Service started out great, but after getting dessert we didn’t see our server at all and had to ask the person at the front for our check.

    Loved our double date Saturday night at Pago on Main. My husband’s pork shank was a bit dry, but everything else was absolutely phenomenal. The starters (oysters, sourdough and cheese plate) were the stars of the show. The service and the craft cocktails a close second. We’ll be back!

    A little disappointing. The service was wonderful, but the food was mediocre. The salmon was undercooked and cold in the middle and the sourdough bread was served burnt on the outside. The burgers were okay, but also undercooked.

    We enjoyed our meal at Pago on Main but a few things kept it from being 5-star. First, the ambiance was NOT great. I was put off seeing huge bags of potato chips and white buns lining the top of the shelves in the glass kitchen as we walked in. I worried about what kind of food we would get! The decor is a bit random, and lots of big tables of people made it noisy. The mushroom-corn lasagne had a good flavor but the noodles were thick and hard to cut. We sent our dessert back twice...again the taste was fine but it was supposed to be served warm and both times it was cold in the center--disappointing! Zach, our server, was very attentive and helpful. He took the dessert off our bill (as he should have). We appreciated not being rushed and enjoyed drinking the wine we brought. We paid a corage fee. Anyway, it was nice enough night but I wouldn't rush back.

    Great food! Lots of wonderful options. Not very busy for lunch late on Saturday however our waitress was training to be a bartender? Her conversations seemed to be centered around the bar and not her customers. We enjoyed our meal but service was very poor. Two salads sat at the counter while she chatted away behind the bar making cocktails with the bartender.

    Food was great. But salad, appetizer and main course all came at once, rather than coursed out. We had to send the pork shank back while we had the other items--which we had to rush through--and by the time the pork came back after reheating it was somewhat dry. Wine came in a glass with someone else's chapstick or lipstick still on it. And no one ever came to refill water glasses. Despite all those problems, the food is really, really good and if they can fix these service related issues I would say Pago on Main could be outstanding.

    We had a Sunday brunch at Pago. Overall, the meals we ordered were uneven in quality and in my case disappointing. Perhaps this was because there were only two working the kitchen and two working the tables. I had a Reuben sandwich that came out with burned bread and insipid fries while my wife had Eggs Benedict that were done perfectly. The rest of us had so-so food. The waitstaff was good and accommodated special requests for the toddler we had with us.

    I was disappointed that opentable showed no reservations between 5:15-8pm on Saturday - however at least 1/2 the tables were empty the entire time we were there from 5:15-6:30pm. On top of that, with all the open tables we were seated at the one table with sunlight streaming on our faces. It just goes to show that they weren't thinking about their guests. However food was amazing, service was good.

    My daughter and I went here for an early dinner, so the place was not crowded at all. The hostess was friendly and professional. We sat down and the waiter did not welcome us until five minutes into the meal. We ordered the onion and chips appetizer. AMAZING! The waiter’s attitude was so horrible! He acted like he was being forced to serve us. I asked for a glass of ice, and he did not come back with the glass until our meal was almost done and I had asked him three times. My daughter ordered the meatball sub, which she said was amazing. I ordered the Niçoise salad, which was okay. The potatoes in the salad were microwaved. Not my idea of a good farm-to-table experience. We left liking the restaurant but loathing the lack of service. We will go back, but will not have that waiter again.

    Great location - surprised so few tables were occupied. First time @ the restaurant and will go back, but would not recommend the Trout Tartine - way overcooked and the soggy skin was left on the filet atop a bunch of mayonnaise on a half bun that was not toasted. From others in our party, the Ruben was good, but tons, I am means tons of cheese. The oysters were fresh, small and sweet, ask for hot sauce. Cannot go wrong with Table X bread. Great fries - addictive. Service was good up to the point we need our check - after 20 minutes, we just went to the counter.... just a training issue...

    Arrived one minute past our 15 minute reservation hold because the street the restaurant was one was closed (no notice of this was made when we booked) they said we could no longer have our table and had to sit in the bar. The restaurant never reached 50% capacity while we were there and the bar stools were uncomfortable for an entire meal. The menu had changed and hadn’t been updated on OpenTable, instagram, or Pago’s website. As a neurodivergent party who likes to know the menu before hand this was incredibly off putting as the “comfort meals” we had chosen the restaurant for was no longer on the menu nor was there anything like it. The bartender was fantastic, the food was cooked well, but overall it was a disappointing experience because of those two things. I rarely write a negative review but it was a really offputting experience from a restaurant that I have loved eating at prior to this.

    The menu was changed - selection greatly reduced - from what was reflected on the Open Table website. Specifically the brunch offerings. There are only 3 brunch items offered.
