Great little spot in downtown CB. I like the small but good selection menu!! Nice wine list. Will be back again soon!!
Service & food were spot on!!!
Can't wait to go back!!
Arancinis with a quail egg...AMAZING!!!
One of our favorite places in CB. We love how the proprietor and his attentive staff make you feel at home.
Love this quaint place in CB. Always great service and this time did not disappoint!
The food was very good. We had the beet salad and flat bread for appetizers. Spiced duck breast was very yummy. We had ordered Antelope loin as medium but it came as medium rare. The only bad thing was that my wife had ordered Mojito but it came with a fly in it. The staff immediately replaced it but they charged us for it.
Django's easily would have rated five stars, except for unacceptably long delays in arrival of the dishes we ordered. The food is great. The servers are friendly and attentive. But, 30 minutes passed between our order and the appearance of our first dish, then another 30 before the final dishes came out. The front-of-the-house staff was aware of the problem and kept apologizing, telling us the kitchen was backed up. We spoke to the manager at the end, who also hinted at problems that night, and offered to adjust our check. Every restaurant can have a bad night, and this certainly was one of them. That said, the quality of the food compensated (at least for the most part) for the wait. If we were staying in Crested Butte longer, we would certainly give Django another chance.
Chris and Kate are a delightful duo. A charming, welcoming host and a talented chef prepares a varied menu to a very high standard.
We tried 4 different dishes and all were delicious. If only the service were as good as the food. After waiting 15 minutes to have someone wait on us, my husband got up and requested that we please be served.
Unfortunately this experience is not unusual in Crested Butte, Service in general is very sub average, let alone up to the quality of much of the food that is served here. When we asked for our check, our wait person computed our tab on a tablet while standing over our table. After running our credit card the transaction was complete. What about gratuities? we asked. They are included, was the response, and our server walked away. Lets hope this is not how CB restaurants are dealing with the lack of good service help.
Loved the small plates, rather creative options that were fun to try. Chris, our server, was fabulous.. polite, friendly, respectful, and just the right amount of attentive!
Great tapas experience. Food was paced well and each dish was unique. Little pricey overall but normal for Elk Ave. The mushrooms were the highlight.
Absolutely fabulous! Kate is a James Beard chef and she and her husband Chris who runs the front of the house knock it out of the park every time! Our Louisiana crew seeks out D’Jangos every trip to CB! Amazing!
Great food & wine! Tips included in price of meal. Delicious small plates.
creative food, very good wine-list; expensive, u
but worth the money and not to be expected in such a small town.
Exquisite and creative food and very friendly service, One of the best food in the Western states.
Great food but slow service... I think CB is overwhelmed with tourists and suffering from a lack of help.
We were seated 25min after our reservation time despite multiple, visible tables open and then watched a couple come in without a reservation and get seated immediately.
Sadly, the quality of the food did not make this poor service worth it. The food was disappointing especially the seafood which did not taste fresh.
The only thing that stopped our dining experience from being 5 star was they were short staffed. All the food we tried was exceptional. The cocktail choice was limited but they had an adequate wine list. The food was a little on the pricey side but well worth it for a special occasion.
The food here is the best I have ever had. This was a truly exceptional dining experience.
Great food, service, and location. Like the small plates.
Food was awesome and unique. Small plates only. A bit expensive for the portions. Only major complaint is that waitress required us to order all courses at once, and then they come so rapidly one after the other that we were rushed. If I ever went back, I would insist on only ordering a plate or 2 at a time so I could dine at my leisure.
Attentive wait staff, prompt service and excellent food!
Brandon our server/bartender was great! Will definitely come again next time in Creates Butte!
This place is awesome! Highly recommend if you are in the area. Django is at the top of my all time fav restaurants. It’s that good!
We loved this place for the quality of the food - creative, presentation and taste - and ambiance. The menu is designed around shared plates, but unlike some places where you get a tiny bit on each plate, these were much more substantial. We had a group of 6; 10 plates left us full and satisfied. And we did share one yummy dessert as well. Be sure to tell your waitperson how you want your meal paced. We felt things came a little too quickly as we wanted to savor each dish. The only knock - we felt the wine was a bit overpriced for what we had.
Excellent meal as always; service was a little difficult at first but finished great. Had great wine and food was delicious
We celebrated my birthday dinner at Django’s. The food was exquisite and the service excellent. We had five dishes which we shared among two people. The duck breast and pork loin were outstanding as was the creme brûlée.
While visiting Crested Butte for a quick vacation, we had the opportunity to dine at Django’s. They have an incredible menu of small dishes, or tapas, that you can share between 2-3 people. We were blown away by the quality and flavors of the dishes, which were not necessarily Spanish, even though the tapas concept is. Their wine list is pretty good, although no whites from CA, which I found to be a little odd, but had a very nice white from Spain. Only hiccup we had was the bartender’s understanding (or lack thereof) of English, so my husband got a drink that was not anything close to what he ordered. Note also that some may find it to be somewhat expensive @ about $125 pp, including alcohol & gratuity, it was well worth it!!!
We were four couples and we ordered a variety of tapa style dishes. We were pleased with all of them. Healthy choices and fair size portions. I would highly recommend this great dining experience.
The chef is very creative and I love eating a variety of small plates instead of one main course.
Very happy with this restaurant. Attentive and friendly server. My daughter and I shared three plates and it was plenty of food. All very good.
Fabulous food. Super fresh. The green beans with pesto, roasted pine nuts and plums was an explosion of flavor. Loved the creme brulee with lavender too.
Such a great spot. Love that the owner was on point. He was super helpful I. Prefer I g wine and very personal. Food was delicious and just enough. The tip situation was unique. They pay the wait- staff hourly (a good wage) and your not expected to pay tip. For sure will be back.
a tasting. sharing menu with very creative preparation. Everything is delicious and every taste is unique. wonderful owner and staff and absolutely fabulous food. not cheap but worth the price and experience.
This restaurant is amazing! We have been here several times and I always leave with a happy tummy. The food is excellent. I have nothing but praise for this restaurant.
We were with a group of 10 friends celebrating friendship! Our server was fabulous! She save us wonderful recommendations and knew just the right amount of food we needed. Her recommendations were spot on! We had a lovely evening and the food was FABULOUS!!!
Third time dining here and D'Jango's continues to please with excellent and creative cuisine. The seasonal items were delicious but the crispy Brussel sprouts and cherry-topped short ribs are my perennial favorites (foods I dream about even when I'm not in CB!) Service is always friendly but this time - it seemed the wait staff was out of synch. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks and we had to wave someone down when we were ready to order. Oh well, food is so good we will try it again - hopefully, with better service next time!
Unique and mostly tasty food, though a bit overpriced.
Service was somewhat poor. They have runners who bring out the plates. No one ever checked to see if we wanted anything else, other than refilling our water glasses. We waited a long time to order desert, but after taking our initial order, we never saw our server again. Eventually we gave up and sent someone looking for her so we could get our bill and leave.
Delicious and creative dishes. The bass was off the charts! Liked the small carafe wine service, better to pair with the variety of the small plates. The space is lovely too. Highly recommend!
Magic!!! It’s a shame that we weren’t able to taste every dish on this menu..guess it just means we have to return!!
Great atmosphere, service and food. We always have a great time here. One of my favorite restaurants in CB.
