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.

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

This restaurant was rated #1 in TripAdvisor. Our dinner reservations were for 9:00pm because we had not made reservations earlier and the restaurant was booked. It was worth the wait. The prices were great for Crested Butte and the food was very very delicious. It was nice to be within walking distance of our hotel also.

Great food. Small plates that you share. Scallops and brussels sprouts were amazing. Loved everything; disliked nothing. Staff was very much on top of things.

We sat in the rear watching the chefs busily at work preparing the small plates. Almost everything we had was excellent but the scallops were a real treat -- expensive at $24 for 3 large scallops but very fresh and superbly prepared. I would listen to other reviewers and not sit by the wine wall. Sitting outside would have provided... More

We stopped in to look at the menu around 4 pm as a potential dinner restaurant; I needed to see if there were options that didn't contain my food allergens. The woman we spoke with (who turned out to be the chef, but we didn't know it at the time) went over the menu with me detailing what I could... More
