    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.

    Good restaurant. What was disappointing was the menu options listed online were far less than offered in house. Went there specifically for oysters and shashuka. Neither were offered. Time to update your online menu maybe?

    Tried this place on a whim and it was fantastic. The braised rib was delicious and I had to admit, I liked my wife's vegetarian lasagna. The only minor comment is I assumed there would be some more carbs with the meal. I'm diabetic so this is a little more concern for me than most folks so I can't really call it a complaint. Besides, the food was soooo goood.

    I love Pago on 9th&9th. I thought I would have a similar experience at the one on Main. I did not. Everything was just off. That’s the best way to describe it. I will not be returning to this location even though the ambiance is great.

    Phenomenal food. Quasi spiritual experience. Think about that scene in Ratatouille when he tries fruit and cheese at the same time and has a psychedelic response. The chef at Pago is an artist and your palate is his canvas. Don’t skip on the sides and appetizers. They are thoughtful additions to the menu. Build your own 5 course meal. You won’t regret it.

    Food was delicious but the service was lacking. Our server (Zachary, who we only found out his name from the bill), never introduced himself and offered us bread which he then charged us $8 for. He also did this to every table around us. I would have rather paid for an expensive appetizer instead of sub par packaged bread. Also, one of the guys in the kitchen (which is open to see and in the middle of the restaurant) had gloves on and was sweeping the kitchen and then used the same gloves to grab a plate and put a meal together for someone. Overall I would never return despite the food being very good.

    Pago on Main has become one of our family's favorite restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our most recent dinner. We shared many of the small plates. Our favorites were Table X sourdough, croquettes, beet and strawberries and burrata. For entrees we enjoyed the chicken, sea bass and farro risotto. All were perfectly cooked and presented. We loved them all. To round out meal, we had the chocolate cremeux and bread pudding. Both sublime. Austin was our server and he was extremely professional, knowledgable and attentive. Such an asset to the Pago team. We look forward to our next visit!

    We had a reservation in an empty restaurant. Before our server had a second table assigned we could see our appetizer sitting at the kitchen counter for several minutes before she noticed. The servers wine recommendation was excellent. The food was tasty but this was way overpriced even for an anniversary dinner.

    We had a wonderful family dinner celebrating a birthday. Our server, Clint C., was fantastic. We enjoyed the croquettes, cauliflower carbonara and burrata as starters. All were perfectly portioned and delicious. Entrees we’re roasted chicken, market fish (salmon) and braised short ribs. Pork chop was on menu, but unavailable and that was our only disappointment. All entrees were good size portions, perfectly prepared and presented. Bread pudding for dessert rounded out the meal. Pago in Main is one of our favorites and we look forward to our next visit!

    This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. We ordered several appetizers and both the burrata and the croquettes were delicious. The short rib was also fantastic, and I would say if you like carrots the carrot mascarpone sauce will make you very happy. Pago really knows how to make things that I already like into something heavenly. I wanted to try both desserts so I ordered both. The texture and the flavor of the bread pudding were a joy to eat, almost melting in my mouth. The chocolate cremeaux had a really great flavor as well. I'd be hard pressed to pick between the two again. From start to finish each bite made me happy.
