Pago is one of the restaurants I depend on for an interesting dinner. I love their wine list, featuring items you don't find anywhere else. The food is tuned to the way people eat now--I've loved the shellfish and vegetable dishes, and the desserts, and the coffee, too. But this week I had a disappointing lunch there. The halibut in...

Low key, elegant presentations including small plates and reasonably portioned large plates. Grapefruit cocktail was zingy and the menu includes a nice wine selection. Understated but rustic modern atmosphere. Great for a quiet night out.

My wife and I went to Pago for lunch with four of our team while at Convention together. My wife and I were here a year ago and had four outstanding meals here at that time. This time we blew in without a reservation and despite being quite full, tables were reorganised and we were accommodated. We'd had a breakfast... More

Yes to everything on Pago's menu!! We started with a bubbly that was unfiltered and biodynamic. Just the right amount of bubbles, crisp,l with hints of citrus and a tad dry. Perfect palette cleanser. We then ordered the steak tartare with a 6 minute egg and toast rounds. Delectable!! The steak tartare melted in your mouth and paired with the... More

Pago doesn't look very elegant - rustic tables, no tablecloths -- but the food and service are first rate. "Mary"s chicken" may have been the best chicken I've ever had, and other courses were in the same league. Service was attentive and responsive without being cloying. Highly recommended for vegans and kale addicts (seemed like half the menu items included... More

I had dinner here last night, for the first time, and really enjoyed it. Pago definitely practices 'farm to table' dining and uses top produce and meats from trusted suppliers. The wine list is good, and my waiter made excellent recommendations for each of my two courses. Service was very efficient and friendly. I'll dine here again soon.

Were always in search of a good meal and struck out. Carrot soup great. Caesar Salad like flavored mayo. Mixed green salad decent. Risotto nasty with no flavor. Like baby food watered down poured over pasta. The creme pot chocolate so nasty. No chocolate flavor. Meat would have probably been better. Never again. Cooks need to travel a bit. Zagat... More

Excellent restaurant a little out of the way. I had brunch there and quickly realized that my waitress was hoping for me to have alcohol with the meal, which came as a surprise since I was under the impression SLC was almost a tea-total city: drinks on a Sunday morning, really?! The restaurant is all oiled wood and hard surfaces,... More

I went to Pago's Friday night with three friends and we had a great time. The restaurant can get full so make sure you book otherwise you may be disappointed and miss out. The meal sizes are reasonable and so are the prices, they have a good wine list and do a fantastic Irish coffee to finish. There are also... More
