I'm afraid I have to agree with some of the other reviewers who find Pago to fall short of the reputation of a foodie haven in SLC owing largely to indifferent service and an uneven menu. During a recent dinner there we had multiple courses, ranging from bland to very good. Really there was only one notable dish - a selection of pork prepared four ways. And prices are quite high for a restaurant that is not in downtown.
As with some other "localvore" restaurants in the area, there's also an attitude of "this is how we do it" at Pago that puts the food ahead of the diner. Particularly odd was the insistence on plating appetizers together, with awkwardly small plates for diners to use. Like Communal in Provo, Pago seems to have decided that diners want the hassle of transferring their food onto dishes, even when the food itself does not call for that approach (or lend itself to easy transfer).
Overall there's a clubby feel to Pago. As others have remarked, if the restauranteur and servers know you, you'll get extra attention. If not, well, take it or leave it. The food offerings are simply not good enough to put up with a noisy dining room, indifferent service, and high prices.
Pretty sure we won't be back.
