Really fresh farm to table restaurant. Did not expect to find a restaurant this good in Salt a Lake City. Really cool quite vibe. They were happy to accommodate my restrictions and still deliver an excellent meal. The menu is small and the restaurant is small so I recommend both reservations and checking out their menu online before you go.... More

This team pushes the envelope with their food. They take fresh ingredients and prepare them in imaginative ways that delight all of the senses. Just one example. In carrots 4 ways, they made a carrot puree mixed with marscapone and topped it with pickled carrots, crunchy deep fried carrot bits, and raw carrots thinly sliced. Beautiful to look at, smell,...

We went to Pago's this very rainy morning to get some German Baby Pancakes, arrived at 9:40AM, walked in the door, were told they don't open until 10AM. We asked if we could sit at a table and wait and maybe get some coffee as it was a downpour outside, we were told sorry you have to go to Coffee... More

Pago combines quality ingredients in interesting ways to make fabulous selections. This restaurant is great for foodies and people who appreciate the time it takes to make various sauces and combinations. it would take you hours at home to make just one of their entrées. The restaurant is on the small size and so are the portions. We easily had... More

I know Pago is rated one of the top restaurants in SLC - but I just don't get it. I've been here for lunch twice and the food was bad both times. The first time I ordered a tuna melt and the bread was completely burned and the tuna was gloopy. So bad I sent it back. The replacement wasn't... More

Pago continues to be great! The service was on point, with great recommendations, and anticipating our needs. We tried many dishes on the menu, and they were all tasty, and well presented. The stand-outs were the chicken, carrots, beet salad, and oysters. Will be back!

What really stood out was the interesting combination of ingredients which made for great favors. The presentation of the dishes was excellent as well. I had a fresh oyster sampler, actually three to be totally honest, they were that good! Each was 3 raw Pacific oysters, carefully seasoned and beautifully garnished. Down the hatch. The main dish that followed was... More

We made the reservation based on SLC's mags. Annual Best restaurants. Apparently after five years of being open they've hit the right combination of decor, food and service. It works well. The servers are extremely knowledgeable about the menu and very professional. We ordered the carrot app., the roasted barbq beet app and the cheese tray. All were excellent. For... More
