ALL FRENCH – NO ATTITUDE

Django is a comfortable, brasserie-style restaurant offering everything you love about French cuisine without the attitude. The restaurant features classic French dishes such as Steak Frites and Duck Cassoulet, as well as fresh salads and juicy hamburgers made with house-ground beef. At the heart of Django is the interactive chef station. Located in the center of the restaurant, this large bar offers patrons a place to order jet-fresh seafood such as oysters, shrimp, clams, mussels, and seafood plateaus, alongside cheese plates, cured meats, artisan bread and house-made desserts.

My family and I went one evening, and it was amazing. Everyone had very different meals: some had appetizers, others had salad/appetizer combos, some had happy hour specials, and some got the full-on entrees, and everyone was happy. A few people shared a bottle of wine with no corkage fee, and the rest of us had cocktails. Everyone seemed to love it!

Todays meal was less than stellar...good, nothing to really complain about but not the 'good' I have grown accustom too. Maybe their upcoming closing has buffered the relish with which the food is cooked...Service still excellent. See what happens in their new venue...

All meals were subpar. I don’t know if chef left but quality was not what we were used to at this establishment.

Food was bad. I've had better at Applebees. Very clear that the onion rings and frites were not fried to order. Limp and cold. Burger was not good. Have had better at fast food joints. No flavor and rather tough for a hamburger patty. Waitress was down right confrontational and rude. Lunch service took almost two hours. Unacceptable. Not a French restaurant. Average diner food with a few quasi French dishes thrown in. Don't go here.
