Amazing place! The waitress from Morocco (I forgot her name) Varesca I guess, she is incredible, she is so sweet and amazing service by her.
I love the music, the place…

Music was outstanding! Fantastic bands performed and we had a fabulous time. Service was not that good, drinks took a while to be served and the waiter wasn’t very friendly. Food was ok.

Went here for NYE and it was a horrible experience. From the food…the incompetent service…the unorganized jazz band that played that night. Ruined my NYE 2022! Thumbs down

I love the Django and I probably go every other month. I love everything there usually. I was there for the NYE celebration last night and I have to say the food was not the best last night. Sauce for crab cake was soooo over powering and salty I had to scrape it off. The turbot fish dish had scale on the skin every bite I took I had to spit out the scale. It was gross. Steak dish my bf got was very good tho. So I’d say considering they are usually very good, some inconsistencies were happening in the kitchen last night.

All in all, The Django is great.

The Music was much too loud and distorted.
We tried to point it out but were not taken seriously by the staff and manager.
We did not feel it was our night but the lead singer’s. He repeatedly hushed at the audience.
We payed a lot of money to please his ego, and we only got arrogance and disrespect from the staff.

The service was awful. Our drinks took 40 mins because they were out of one of the cocktails. I asked to make an adjustment to one of the drinks and the sever said no changes could be made because drinks are “pre batched” so how it took 40 mins to make a pre batched drink is beyond me. My boyfriend also ordered food before the rest of us (he placed his order first not knowing the rest of the party hadn’t decided on food) but said to wait to put it in. It showed up before the rest of us were able to even get an order in. It then took another 20 mins to flag the server down to place our order. Last, my boyfriend and other friend each ordered a drink. My friends came, my boyfriend’s didn’t and we were asked to leave because if another reservation (I had made this reservation weeks in advance and it was still under the 2 hour time limit). Awful experience.

Great live performance and staff was really good. Was a shame that we only had 1.5hrs on the table as would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the performance.

Great food. Great music. Great vibes. Staff seems to be slightly short handed but overall a great experience. Ordered half dozen oysters, club steak, Atlantic salmon, and warm apple tart. All great options just a little smaller in size than I would have hoped (all pictured)

The service was absolutely horrible. Took over 45 minutes to get a check. The hostess was extremely rude and hostile. Great music, but would not bring guests back due to the attitudes of the staff.

Due to what appears to be a shortage of staff, we waited 45 minutes to order a second round of drinks and instead of assisting us the waiter arrived with the check. So we just left. We would have ordered more if anyone had come by our table. It is a beautiful venue and great music, but please get it together with the staffing.

Pricey but you get what you pay for: they don’t skimp on cocktails and the food options are pretty wide. Service is helpful and accommodating asking me for my seating preference. I left my credit card and it had immediately gone to the manager who handed it to me on my return. A really nice experience.

First time to Django and loved the room. Though I ate lightly, what I had was well prepared and presented. Staff was pleasant and attentive, and also did a good job keeping the audience noise to a minimum so we could hear the band. Looking forward to my next visit. Thanks to all.

Had a lovely time - only negative feedback is that they have a time limit on the tables, which we knew going into the evening, but ended up being sort of off-putting in the moment. We had ordered a couple of drinks and a full meal and that still wasn't enough time to finish our glasses of wine before we were told we needed to vacate the table. They were very nice about it but it felt tacky to ask guests to leave in the middle of the first music set and while they still had wine in their glasses. I'd switch the policy to having your table reservation lasting for the entirety of the first set instead of 90 minutes (especially because there is a $20 cover charge per person).

Great night as always at The Django. Fantastic ambience, service, and of course the music was superb. Televana! Make them a regular at the venue, please. Such exciting and excellent musicianship, and by the end people were dancing.

(My only negative is the food selection; almost nothing vegan. Please consider adding many more vegan options...or even going completely vegan, as more and more restaurants are doing. Diet is one area that we need not be "retro".)

Thank you.

Place was nice, waitress were polite and friendly. However, had a bad experience with the Man who manages the hostess or it’s a second host.

I had reservation for 7 and not enough seats, ok. The friendly staff was trying to figure out and one of them told me to speak with this specific guy who Manages the tables( the hostess was a women)

When I approached to try to talk he literally told me SHiShhhhh
and gesticulating to go away.

A manager in a place like that can’t ever talk to a customer in that way, he was arrogant and totally unprepared to solve SMALL things like seating.

He was in one point gesticulating and stressed talking to me and the hostess. One of my guest saw that and she was HORRIFIED and told me how rude he was. He later apologized, but at that point I was mad.

My night turned out good because I was with a group of friends and the Waitress were so nice and friendly.

I came here with my husband to celebrate his birthday and I must say this was an amazing experience. This was our first time seeing a live jazz band and they were awesome. We were even able to converse with one of the musicians. We will definitely come back to this establishment. We did not have to wait long at all for a table and they gave us one of the best seats.

Great entertainment and beautiful atmosphere. The only drawback is that your table reservation is only for 1.5 hours, so you can’t watch the full show of the band you came to see!

Fix this, please!

The place is great! But be aware of the $20 cover + 2 drinks minimum per person and crazy expensive food. Also after 1 hour and a half they kick you out. Also they ask you to “lower your voice” if you are talking with your friends because of “echo”

Cool Jazz club on lower level of Roxy hotel. Nice ambience - great drinks and small plates. Pretty expensive considering $20 cover charge for 1/1/2 hours - minimum 2 item per person. Overall very nice experience - great singer and musicians
