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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
