The table split the brussel sprouts and duck frites for appetizers. Both were excellent. The wine selection was on point. I had the Caesar salad and the wife had the Django salad. I enjoyed mine more than she did. The Django was a little heavy on the feta. We both had the New York Strip Au Poivre cooked to each of our likings. All very well. The server brought a free desert with a candle for her birthday. I would definitely recommend Django for a special occasion.

Loved the duck frites, charcuterie board, and entrees that we had. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, which is something I truly love when dining out. Would definitely come back again with family to enjoy amazing dishes

A couple of the items didn't quite deliver on expectations, the onion and bleu cheese "tart" was a puffed pastry and had broad areas of burn, the steak au poivre was great but the Django potatoes were nothing like what is represented on the website, my wife was sadly disappointed as she loves a great scalloped potato dish.

Service was amazing. Entree was terrible. I got the bouillabaisse and it was one of the worst things I've had in a very long time. The sauce had a very stale taste. And I know seafood is expensive, but there should've been more than 6 pieces of seafood in an $34 dish. Highly overpriced for the quality.

We were seated in a small back room that I hadn't sat in before, which was very nicely decorated and comfortable. I continue to be amazed that I can go to Django, get a happy hour appetizer for$6-$9, a Croque Madam or a burger for under $20 with a side, and a bowl of the amazing French Onion soup for a few dollars more. It's fine dining at fast food pricing. The more expensive entrees are amazing, as well, but if you're looking for value, you can find it here. The poutine is maybe the most delicious thing I've ever eaten.

I just didn't enjoy the Beef Bourguignon I ordered. Never had it served as a singular piece of meat with noodles just on the side as an afterthought before. Wouldn't order that dish again. Everything else was delicious though. The fried brussel sprouts, my wife's salmon and the creme brulee.

We were disappointed in the escargot’s but the remainder of meal was excellent. I had the salmon and my husband had the crepe. We had samples of each other’s and we both thought they were wonderful. This has always been a special restaurant for us

The food and service was outstanding. My only complaint is they did not have the ingredients to make the Bouillabaisse which is what I was planning on ordering before we arrived. Spilt the Beet Salad and an order of Mussels with my husband and a French Toast for dessert. All were quite tasty.

Service was initially very good. Entrees were good. Salmon was very good. What was supposed to be a Bernaise sauce for the salmon was not flavorful and did not complement the salmon. We made that comment to our server and she apparently took offense as her attitude changed dramatically and she gave us our check without a word. I gave her a generous tip but we were very disappointed at her change of attitude.
