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.

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.

Although I can not fairly rate the food because we did not stay long enough to even order any of it, I can rate this place on other factors. We made a reservation because the place had great reviews and the menu sounded good. Upon walking in, there was no hostess in sight for nearly 5 minutes. The other staff looked miserable and did not say a word to us for the first few minutes that we were standing there. The table that we were sat at was tiny (there were 3 of us and the table was meant for a max of 2). The metal chairs and decor was very cold and not cozy at all. The servers were cold and unfriendly. As we were looking our printed out sheet of paper which looked to be printed from a home printer on white paper without any plastic covers menus, and after noticing the extremely overpriced wine menu, we decided to leave. It was very disappointing because we were really looking forward to a meal there...but there are certain things that go too far that we refuse to put up with. For those prices we expect a far superior atmosphere and comforts. The place looks like a fast food joint charging fine dining prices. One of the Spanish wines was listed for around $80/bottle and can be bought in Spain for around $5/bottle. No thanks. We will just save a GENUINE TAPAS meal with MUCH LOWER prices and a much better atmosphere with friendlier people for our next visit to Spain.

We have dined at Django’s several times, and it never disappoints; it is our favorite dinner spot in Crested Butte. The meal was impressive start to finish. Great appetizers, creative salads and amazing main dishes were all shared by our party of 7. The lamb, massive bone in ribeye and duck were the favorite mains with the beet salad the best of that group.

This is a unique place in Crested Butte, and I highly recommend it whether a large group or a special occasion dinner for two. It’s upscale and casual at the same time. You will feel comfortable dressed up or in jeans. While the service may not quite be on par with high end venues in a major city (to be expected in a small resort town and still great by this standard), the food performs at a very high level and can compete nationally. Go experience it!

We had a reservation, but it took a long time to get seated. Our reservation was for outdoor seating, but that never happened. After waiting 30 minutes past our reservation time, we were given the option to sit inside. We took it. A waiter gave us a menu with the wrong date on it. We had no idea until after we ordered and were informed the items we requested were not available. When we finally did receive the correct menu we ordered several plates. The dates, brussel sprouts, lamb and steak were all excellent. They also had a good wine selection. It was a nice place for a date, but a word of caution, go for the food and allow yourself plenty of time to get out of there.
