Was with a dear friend for my birthday dinner. Long wait for our server to come in the first place, and then to come back the next time... which is fine. I understand many restaurants are short-staffed and busy as the pandemic has shifted things.

However, he literally did not pay attention to anything I said and instead gave attention to and spoke to my friend almost the entirety of each time he was at our table. Though he was standing right in front of me, I had to GET his attention to ask questions or tell him what I wanted, while he gave utter attention to my friend.

His name is David. I make a point to always know my servers' names and to appreciate them for their service. I have to say I have not had such agregious treatment by a server ever as I did from David.

Everyone else at Pago was excellent, as was the cuisine. The kitchen accommodated my gluten free needs by sending out the cheese platter with sunchoke chips instead of crackers--it was divine!! I thanked them.

The artichoke pasta was amazing. It tasted even better than it looked. Our group was a mix of people who eat anything, vegetarians and vegans. Everyone was happy and loved their meal.

The food was amazing. We had the short ribs and salmon. The salmon has the most flavorful crust in it. The best salmon I’ve ever had. The bread pudding topped it all off and was incredible.

Our time at Pago was outstanding. The food was wonderful. Presentation, flavors and creativity were appreciated by all of us. If you are a Foodie - you will not be disappointed.

Wine list was thought out and unique - not your typical offering...especially in Utah.

Service was attentive, friendly and welcoming.

Ambience was nice but not overly impressive. The space is small and has interesting characteristics that could make the space truly impressive.

A must do while in SLC

Pago never disappoints! Their food is delicious and always on point. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food and wine list (which is one of my favorite in the city). Everything is fresh & in season yet has the unique ‘Pago take’ on it.
Every employee, from the host to the people in the kitchen, are always super friendly & seem genuinely happy to be there.

We were looking for a quite date night, covid style. I appreciate the blocking out of a table or two. The staff was all properly masked up and didn't crowd us. WINE WAS EXCELLENT AND FOOD WAS AMAZING!

Starting w very unusual Burrata & Acorn Squash w Pomegranate greens dish, Lobster Rotolo was refined and sturdy at the same time, and the Smoked Short Rib is to die for with meat just falling apart and bursting with deep flavor and each veggie perfectly sautéed and/or broiled. The e-menu totally understates the the complexity of preparation and presentation. Bravo!
