Description: 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.

Well worth the visit. Menu is creative and very good. Service was excellent. The only drawback is that the place is small so you kind of sit on top of each other. Ok if you have a group, but if you're a couple, not as easy to talk. The brussel sprouts were wonderful. It's a small plate restaurant, however, some... More

Nice atmosphere, great service and mostly great food. We had several small plates and were really enjoying the food. Then we ordered the Lamb. It was terrible! The lamb was tough, almost raw, and what little was eatable didn't taste too good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant-just don't order Lamb! PS: pricey

Pricey, food was ok. Our group was a bit large and they wanted us to order the whole menu (tapas) and then share. The good thing was that at least they were open! Most everything was shut down!

Big selection of delicious small plates. I samples scallops, lamp, elk, and several vegetarian plates. All were wonderful in a very cosmopolitan but casual atmosphere.

Make sure to get a reservation! It is worth it. We are staying right above the restaurant, and saw the reviews, so decided to give it a try. We are so glad that we did. The host right as we walked in the door was wonderful. Very nice and personable. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food was... More

Loved the small plate style of eating. The scallops were to die for as was the ravioli and salad. Check it out!

Food is great- try the brussel sprouts! Prices rival what you would pay in Vail, so come prepared. We were disappointed at the service we received for the $$, but food was wonderful.

Menu was completely different from web-site, dishes where bland and no flair to them. Mushrooms where drenched in lemon, and I love dishes with lemon. The only saving grace was their wine list!

We came here to celebrate my birthday! We sat at THE BEST table in the whole dining room! The chef's table! We got to interact with the chefs cooking, watch all the kitchen action, and eat delicious food! Our server was a little slack, but the rest of the staff made up for her short comings! We will definitely be... More
