django's is a locally owned restaurant at the base of Mt. Crested Butte, gaining national attention for its seasonal menu of globally inspired small plates. This culinary adventure offers a fun dining experience best shared with friends: the plates are brought one at a time, for everyone to taste up to 25 different selections on the weekly menu. The wines are served by quartino (250ml) carafe, to allow for pairing and sampling across an extensive list focused on European and South American wines. The interior is elegant yet casual, offering seating in booths or banquettes, at low or high tables, and at the dining bar overlooking the kitchen. If you prefer dining outdoors, grab a table on the courtyard patio, where you'll hear live music on Thursdays.

Great, creative food, non invasive staff

We attended as part of a special event and were treated to a multi-course tasting menu. The food was delicious, creative and presented beautifully. The servers announced the dish when they brought it to the table and then let the conversations resume. Fun, hip atmosphere.

We stumbled upon Djangos while skiing at Crested Butte. It is one of few restaurants up at the mountain, not in town, and it is not to be missed. The food, served as small plates, is exquisite gourmet fare, blending and balancing original approaches to elk, duck, and scallops among other meats. Veggies are not ignored, and my favorite veggies... More

I was not impressed with the food and price. I understand the tapas concept and smail plates but as a foodie I expected the price to match up with the small plates. Also in reading the menu that mentions hospitality it really means tip is included.. As a frequent traveler to Europe I understand tip included.but it is not explained... More

Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry you found your meal to be expensive. For the quality of ingredients and preparation, we are typically far less expensive than other options in town and in larger cities. In addition, as one of the few 'tip-less' restaurants in Colorado with hospitality included pricing, there are no hidden costs of service --... More

For dining, we generally head into the town of Crested Butte. Opting to skip the arduous eight minutes drive to Elk Ave, we have frequently taken meals at Django's in Mountaineer Square. The most recent was Christmas night 2015, party of four. We were well taken care of by a young lady who's name I don't recall. Very attentive and... More

Sometimes I don't want to get in and get out. I want to relax, try different wines and order food at a leisurely pace. This is the place on the mountain. Knowledge, friendly staff. We asked a lot of questions about the menu and he was never stumped for an answer. My favorites were the brussel sprouts and the scallops... More

Really good food, all small plates so if you order a few it is fun variety. I think most plates are shareable for four people if you like to graze thru several. We were only two people so three plate totally filled us up, the short rib is a must. Dessert was decadent. Wine list is very good. We had... More

The food is good the service for our party of 8 was not good. We were seated one hour and 15 minutes after our reservation time. I would only return with a small party.

We're sorry you had to wait for your table, and that can be frustrating especially for a late reservation. While we had confirmed 8:45PM with your concierge, some of your party arrived at 8PM which made the wait seem especially long for your 9:10PM seating. We have so few tables that the 'domino effect' of any cancellations or variation in... More

Went for dinner on Christmas Day 2015. Restaurant was busy, considering it was Christmas and not many other restaurants were open so it was expected. Food - Menu was limited but quite unique. Small portion meant for tapas. Food was ok, not great. Brussel Sprouts was a bit too salty for our taste and steak a little tough. Drink -... More

The food was great. Cocktails were great but the service was sllllooooowwwww. Is it because they factor tip into price so the servers do not have to try--maybe? Food was spot on. One of a few places in CB that uses open table--so reserving was easy.

We drove into Creates Butte that night from Denver and were starving. We had heard great things about Django's, and so we thought we would give it a try. We waited a few minutes, got seats at the bar, ordered a drink and got that drink 20 MINUTES later. We were sitting at the bar. The food was good, but... More
