    This place is amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were perfect—not too much food, but enough to be very satisfying. The service was outstanding; friendly, timely, and helpful. This was one of the best meals I’ve had in salt lake and the environment is perfect for a nice date or any occasion really. Could not recommend this place highly enough.

    Felt like the brunch was just ok. Compared to the dinner menu, the brunch was just ok. When I see braised beets with bacon, I wouldn’t expect both of those things cold. Everything else was just ok. They could do much better.

    Pago is a great choice for anyone - it is in a fun neighborhood, has a funky vibe, excellent service, and delicious interesting food. I took my 81 year old mother, my backwoods Minnesota husband and my gay step brother. Everyone loved it. Taylor our server was awesome.

    We tried the braised beets, sourdough bread, and two pastas. The bolognese was phenomenal. The service was excellent and they accommodated a special request for us when we booked the table. Overall it was an excellent dining experience.

    We have been to Pago three times and it is always exceptional! The food is high quality, has great flavor, and there are options for all dietary restrictions. The menu is on the small side but there is always something great to enjoy. Our waitress was wonderful and the environment inside is so peaceful! Absolutely love this spot and will be going back soon.

    Family in town so we had a reunion brunch with 12 of us. They accommodated us. Seated on patio, and it was plenty warm. We were the moderate noise level!! Food was high quality and delicious. Loved the seasonal mimosa. We had Several salmon curry, Pago breakfasts, several French toast, and a croque madam. All wonderful.

    My choice, short rib rotolo was amazing. The wide pasta was presented in as circular rings stuffed with shredded meat from ribs. A rich tomato sauce formed an outside ring. On top was a arugula salad coated in vinaigrette dressing. Amazing to view, it was wonderful to eat. My only complaint was that I had a stomach ache later that night. Minor but puzzling since this was the only thing I had eaten that day.

    Pago @9th and 9th is a go-to fav. Neighborhood-y but still has a special vibe. The short rib rotolo is STUNNING. Get to it before it it changes out seasonally!

    I have been dining at Pago since it opened in 2009. Back then, it was a jewel. Elevated dining experience in a comfortable setting. Truly unusual items on the menu like sweetbreads. It was a treat. We have dined now twice since the pandemic started to wind down, including last night. Our server David was great and the white Burgundy we had was delicious at a great price point, but the meal itself just didn't impress that much. The two entrees we had were certainly cooked properly but there was no "zing" to them - Fettucine Bolognese and Argentine shrimp. I am thinking that to keep the entrees in the $20's, food cost has to have been trimmed as the menu struck me pricewise, as unchanged over the years. Do I wish everything was priced in the 30's and 40's? No, but I'm also thinking that the menu from the teens at the same prices had more content. What was striking was how many people around us ordered the Pago Burger. I am sure it is delicious and sadly, at $19 it is about the going rate for a sit down restaurant these days.

    The gem salads and peaches/beets salads are some of the best in town. We split the farro salmon which was perfectly cooked. The Albarino was the just right pairing. Service provided by Taylor was as always terrific.

    Menu options and taste experience were much better pre-pandemic. Came for a work event to impress a guest and neither of us were impressed with our entrees. Used to be one of my favorites but I probably won’t go back anytime soon.

    Sat outside—very comfortable. Food is somewhat pricey but it’s quality, so it’s to be expected. Delicious food. I got their salmon and was very impressed. Left me full and feeling good. Definitely one of my favorite local restaurants of all time.

    The quality has gone down - in food and service. They rushed us through the dining experience bringing our entrees way before we were even done with our appetizer. It was frustrating. Probably won’t go back.

    We made a last-minute reservation at Pago because it came up as a quiet restaurant. It was a fantastic experience. Taylor took great care of us and he knew the menu and wine pairings well. He gave excellent but not overbearing service. The peach and beet salad is not to be missed. We also had a small plate of roasted mushrooms that were delicious. For the main course, I had an excellent pork belly with housemade kimchi. Well balanced and flavorful. The chocolate cake isn't to be missed either and they have a nice local amaro to go with it.
