    We had a great time at dinner last night. The food was excellent, the service was world class and the ambience was fantastic. The noise level was low giving us a chance to catch up. The food was a great value too.

    I have to say my experience was disappointing sad to say. The menu on Open Table was not current so what I was looking forward to no longer existed. We had a reservation and received a two top at the back of the restaurant nearest to the toilet. The restaurant was fairly empty. I asked to be moved and was offered a table one over, still near the toilets The saddest part of our dinner was our food was luke warm, and I told the server it was, with the caveat it tasted good, but was luke warm. All she offered was i will "mention" it to the kitchen. No offer of anything to make it right. In the end we spent $100 for a luke warm dinner, a not nice table, and still tipped the server fairly. We won't be back......

    Our drinks were ordered before the meal. All 3 starters were served (and these were ordered well after drinks) prior to our first cocktail. If you want to impose your morals on the guests, then don’t serve alcohol at all. We are paying, not you!

    New Year’s Eve tasting menu plus wine pairings was one of the finest meals we’ve ever had. The sommelier knocked it out of the park! We both left feeling like we had had an EXPERIENCE rather than just food and wine. We will be back!

    We have loved Pago and had not tried Pago on Main yet. I think it could be better. It was too cold to take our coats off on a winter evening. It may be a better destination in the warmer months. The ambiance could be improved with some warmth and coziess. I loved the round tables, but they are floating in the middle of a gigantic cold room and it gives you the feeling of a lonely cafeteria, especially if you are one of the first customers there. Maybe adding some low planters/dividers could salve the problem? Loved our waitress! The food was good, loved the options, but can’t put my finger on it….I was expecting a little more. Overall, a pretty good experience, but not as special as anticipated. Unfortunately, the restaurant business is a tough business, all the effort that goes into it is appreciated none the less!

    I was hesitant when I looked at the menu. I'm married to a very meat and potatoes man or a man with a great steak. We ordered the Pumpkin Bread appetizer and the Short Ribs. The flavors are amazing and my meat and potatoes man enjoyed it as well. Nice change for me. Loved it. I've already recommended it to my co-workers today.

    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.
