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.

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

We came to Django's for a late dinner. We had an arugula salad, Japanese-style eggplant, and a duck leg confit, with a flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was delicious. The atmosphere was also pleasant and the wait staff almost too attentive. The quarter-liter of an Argentinian red wine from their extensive selection was a perfect complement. I especially recommend... More

Yes, my squeeze and I returned to Crested Butte this past winter and have just booked it again for January 2015. Again, our favorite place to hang and to eat is Django's - Tony, the voluble personality behind the bar appears to run the place - he is a wonderful catalyst for those of us who congregate at the bar...

We enjoyed a very good meal at this place, after hiking in the mountains. First impressions were spoiled by a clueless maître d', who was a shambles, keeping people waiting and apparently unable to work the reservations system. But once we were seated (we booked) our waitress was great, helpful and knowledgeable about the variety of small plates on the... More

My wife and I have eaten here four times this year. Duck, trout, short ribs, and flatbread are all five star. Kate and Chris have created a culinary experience at 9400 ft in the mountains. This is the best place to try new things in a very friendly environment. It's great entertainment just to watch the kitchen at work. This... More
