I wanted to love this place, since it translates really well into Instagram! The prices were too dang high, unfortunately, for the caliber of musicianship I experienced that evening. The chicken sandwich was tough and slippery, a combo more suited to an outdoor picnic, not a fancy night out. Room was super air conditioned, which I didn’t understand. Our waiter was fine, and it was overall ok, I’d just rather go hear jazz at Small’s or Mezzrow. Thanks.

Everything about the night was wonderful except for our particularly unfriendly and inattentive waiter. We had a great time though and will definitely come back! Music, dancing, and drinks can’t really go wrong.

I won't come back to this place.
The concert was nice but they make you loose your money, the cocktails are very expensive and the food too. We spent like 1 hour there and paid 100 dollars.
Never again.
There are plenty of other nice places you can listen to jazz music in NYC, if you are not Cresus then go away...

Service was the worst I have seen in New York. Waiter kept forgetting parts of our order. It took him 20 minutes to get me a glass of wine. Their only saving grace is that they invite outstanding musicians. The music was out of this world.

There is a 15$ cover if you are not a hotel guest and a 2 drink minimum per person which is only written on the BACK of the menu. Unacceptable to not make guests aware of that

We also like to make sure this information is also well documented on our website and within our menus and repeated within phone calls and upon entry. We do apologize for the misunderstanding and hope you might be able to provide more insight on how we can better distribute this information.

We really enjoyed our time, the drinks were wonderful with some great twists! The first group we heard was a traditional jazz trio and they were great. The second group, however was quite loud. We ended up leaving because we couldn't talk to each other. No fault of Django! The service, food, drinks were all top notch!

Music was out of this world. Top jazz. This was as amazing as a top jazz venue in Paris. If you want world class jazz & outstanding mixologist cocktails go to Django. Service was also outstanding. We only had the crudete with hummus & the fries. Not mind blowing but it’s a snack. It was fine. The free snack of trail mixes etc was also nice. Very energetic and beautiful space. I felt like I was in a European jazz / wine cellar with a high energy NYC vibe and world class jazz.

The Django made for a great date night. The music was excellent, and the ambience very cozy and thoughtful. Food and drinks are very pricey, but expected for being a part of the hotel. They turn the tables, so we had to make our way back to the bar to enjoy the second set, which we didn’t mind. I’d highly recommend checking this place out for a night of great live music.

Very poor service from the waiter, manager not helpful at all when we had an issue. Food was good but doesn’t balance the poor service and how customers are treated.

The Django
Responded on February 27, 2019

Very sorry to hear about your negative experience with us. It seems to have been due to a misunderstanding that you and your guests could remain at the table for both shows. This, as we discussed and read about on the website + menu, is not the case. Reservations are made on a per show basis. Unfortunately, extending your reservation was not possible on the night of your visit, although we tried. We hoped inviting you to enjoy the rest of the night in our bar room would help ease the confusion.

Table was the worst. Back was towards the band. Couldn’t turn my chair around because wait staff and managers were constantly walking through. Even with moving as far in as possible, constantly had staff hitting up against me. Way over priced.

Love this place! The woman at the front of house was wonderful and helpful, even answered the phone as we called to say we'd be a bit late for out reservation. When we arrived, at 10:30 on a Saturday night, she was warm and welcoming, and made sure to have us seated at a table that would be comfortable for the elders in our party. The best was Chino Pons and his fantastic Cuban band, great salsa dancing and a great vibe.
