    We went for brunch and my husband's meal was very nice with veggies and eggs and amazing potatoes. I had the same potatoes which are really perfection, but the hearty salad was a big flop with course kale and flavorless dressing. The interior of the restaurant felt less than clean and just a little tired. Mimosas were great. Just felt the food was less than it should be and a little sprucing up would go a looong way.

    Their food was DIVINE. Seriously the best burger my husband has had in a long time. None of their breakfast was bad, and we fully appreciate their special breakfast being the leftover braised beef from dinner the night before with fabulous potatoes and eggs. Five stars, you guys were excellent. Also, Sophie was excellent at serving us when we had a crazy toddler with us!

    Not many choices. Food was salty and not equal to the price. Dessert was minuscule. For $72 for two people there’s a lot better food around in the valley.

    We came here for our anniversary dinner. What a treat. It was difficult to decide what to order since everything sounded amazing. Even the bread and compound butter was just so good. We will be coming back for those beets and strawberries, and the squash and burrata.

    I'm a repeat customer at Pago. I like the small, neighborhood restaurants. It has a very small menu but the items on it are always very good. Service is typically good but lately it has been slower, which I think is the case at most restaurants.

    Very unfriendly and infrequent service. Our server did not seem happy to be there and never checked in on how the meal was going or if we’d like any more drinks. Maybe they were short staffed but I think our expectation for a Mother’s Day dinner was for a friendlier experience.

    It’s a small establishment so it was a bit cramped. Cute place though with the brick interior. Didn’t love the few entree options but the food turned out to be pretty good just not my taste. Loved the goat cheese toast though.

    Good ambiance and the price point is right for the quantity/quality of food. Service was good without being overbearing. While the menu is varied, the selections are quite limited with only six or seven entrees. I'm not vegan but one of my companions was and they don't offer any vegan options on the menu. They were happy to swap out eggs for more vegetables on their breakfast entree. I would go back.

    Another great visit to Pago. 7:15 reservation and seated on time. I requested a quiet table as I use hearing aids and I have a voice disorder. We were given a table for 2 in the walkway when a booth, which was set up for two was available. Shortly thereafter, a party of two was given the booth; hard to figure. Cheese plate was excellent as were out entrees, the Potato Gnocchi and The Utah Beef & Port Bolognese. Service was very good and prompt.

    We went to Pago for brunch on Easter, I had looked online and didn't see any set menu options at all. It looked like it would be just a normal menu. When we got there it was a set menu, it said it was $32 a person for a plate of pastries, a starter and main course. I thought that sounded reasonable, so we stayed. There was 5 of us and the server brought a small plate of 4 pastries for the whole table to share. We each got 1 or 2 bites of each. Then our starters came, I got the pickled strawberries and beets with candied quinoa, it was delicious but it was an incredibly small portion. Our main course came and I ordered the burger, it was good. I had ordered an ice tea, and my friends had ordered diet cokes, we had to ask for our 1 round of refills, and it took a long time to get them. Our food was good, not the best burger I've ever had and definitely not the best pastries, but good. However the tip was included plus sales tax, my bill alone was $45, which means essentially my ice tea was $4 and my burger and starter were about $16 each. I'm so happy to pay that kind of money for really good food and I always tip 20% and more if the service is great, but nothing was great. For that price we should each gotten to have a whole pastry, and not have to ask for refills. The entire experience was mediocre and not worth the price at all. It's really unfortunate because we had all been so excited to have brunch there. But I'd save your money and go somewhere else.

    Some restaurants seem designed and run with a focus on "the experience." This restaurant focuses on providing truly wonderful flavor. They deliver that from the drinks menu through dessert. And "the experience" follows from that. It's one of the most comfortable restaurants I've experienced; you find yourselves talking and laughing and really paying attention to flavor, because the music and decor don't demand your attention. You just call great. The servers are friendly and informative, and most important real people who care about food. If everyone could experience Pago a few times, we would have a lot fewer "meh" restaurants, and a lot more happy, mindful people. Many thanks

    There’s been some deterioration in the level of service and care given to the food. Still good, but not exceptional. A number of missteps and issues with a guest nearby diminished the experience also. Recommended, but with an asterisk. Staff training would go some distance in meeting the needs of customers…

    made a reservation and ate brunch here Saturday 10 a.m. Waiter was super nice, friendly, and knew about the menu. the French toast was super tasty with a glaze that made it more rich than normal. My compatriot ordered something more hearty with eggs and enjoyed as well. Nice ambience, good place for conversation. as usual with SLC hipster scene, a little overpriced for what you get but what are you going to do.

    The Potato Gnocchi and Utah Beef just a few slices of salami. They appear to have added a few tables inside, which helped to make it very loud. Covered, outside seating is now available. I have never had a bad meal at Pago.

    Our server was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We had an amazing meal: cheese plate with charcuterie was great and very filling for two people. We shared the roasted cauliflower which was so delicious. My son got the bolognese which was so flavorful and I got the sausage ritolo which was like heaven in my mouth. The presentations are beautiful. Our water glasses were almost constantly tended to. Overall, we had a true artisanal food experience with great service and ambience. I would DEFINITELY go again!!
