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.

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

The food is wonderful. The wine is good but expensive (and nothing from California!?). The staff is friendly but not as wine knowledgeable as other similar places. The room is small and packed with tables. Some outside seating. I'll be back. Parents, suggest not bringing the young kids here.

We visit Crested Butte frequently, and previously really liked Django's. Out visit last week was a great disappointment - Chicken Picata was tasteless and without capers, soft shell crabs were dry and brittle with no taste, chopped salad had two tiny bites of chicken and was basically all iceberg lettuce, cannelloni were dry and tasteless. What's happening? Prices are as... More

Hi, this review is for another restaurant, since django's does not serve the items you mentioned: chicken piccata and cannelloni. It appears the django's review, titled "Always A Pleasure!", was posted to the other location. Maybe TripAdvisor can assist with re-posting them? Thanks for joining us. More

Dined here with family members recently and ended up going out afterwards to eat. To be clear, we are not big Americans if you know what I mean but the portions here for what they charge are ridiculous. For example, the lamb plate is $18 and you get 3 small pieces of very delicious, perfectly cooked lamb so at $6... More

Thanks again, Tripadvisor!!! So worth it. After a long bike ride today, we had seen a sign for Django's. Checked tripadvisor, high marks so decided to give it a try! So glad we did. Long wait, but enjoyed some fabulous Chardonnay while we waited. First we got the arugula salad. Fabulous!! No dressing, and still so flavorful!! Next, came the... More

We ate at Django's after a 40 mile mountain bike race. It was very convenient for us as we were staying in the Lodge at Mountaineer Square only a few steps away, which my tired legs appreciated. It is highly recommended by CB locals even though it is up the hill at MCBR. Reservations were easy and we were shown... More

Went on a quiet Sunday evening and sat outside in the perfect weather. Service was great with them being very helpful in suggesting wines and dinner options (not sure if normal but it seemed a communal affair with a number of folks serving our table). We love places that have small plates where we can try a number of different... More

if you are a foodie then you will love this place. I was solo tonight so i sat at the bar and Tony was there for all my needs, including a couple of excellent glasses of wine from their extensive menu. The brussel sprouts, sauteed mushrooms and steak frites were all excellent.. I highly recommend for all.
