We visited as a large group for a business dinner. The wait staff was wonderful and on top of everything. The food was good...based on reviews I intended to order the scallops but they were not available so have the filet. The meat was very good - tender but a little over cooked. The French onion soup was among the... More

We visited for Sunday Brunch because it is connected to Hotel Fort Des Moines, where we were staying. Our waitress was efficient if not particularly friendly. Did not notice any special Brunch menu - just had the breakfast menu. I had Croque Madames “French Ham & Cheese” Ham, Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard on South Union Bakery country bread, finished...

I initially thought there was not much to do in Des Moines so I was surprised to taste the quality of food at Django. I got to try the Mussle Boulabaise and the Mussles in blue cheese served in iron cast pots and they were delicious. You could really taste the mussles with ever sip of the base and the... More

My wife selected this restaurant and by the time we made reservation,the first slot available was 8:30. The hostess let us know that they have a huge bar and we could always just pop in and try to grab a seat. We are so glad we did! The bartenders are clearly comfortable serving food and in fact made some great... More

the best service with outstanding seared scallops with lobster corn mashed potatoes. I can taste it right now! Ask the server for help with anything as they are very knowledgeable.

We stopped at Django's for the first time last Monday noon. One of us ordered a ham and cheese omelette, the other ordered a "grown-up" grilled cheese and we both had "duck" fries. The food was fabulous--tasty and delivered hot and fresh with a creative touch. (What was the secret ingredient in the sandwich? We're thinking it was either truffle... More

A friend brought us here to try out the French good. I had the Salad Nicoise and it was wonderful. I had the small salad and I couldn't finish it. Lots of perfectly grilled tuna, fingerling potatoes, Nicosia olives and tomatoes. Yum! This restaurant has lots of my favorite French menu items and I'd love to go back and try... More
