i was introduced to this restaurant as an alternative to Centro, which i patronise every year on my annual trip to Des Moines. Placed was packed for a weeknight..impressive, as prices are not exactly low. Although it was advertised as a French restaurant, i doubt it. Portions are American sized; menu selection is more American than French. I ordered a... More

Django is highly overlooked on the Des Moines food scene. Fantastic food, great service, lively atmosphere. Great experience overall. Would go again in a heartbeat! Don't pass this up!

We dined here on the Saturday evening of the 4th of July weekend. The restaurant was busy, but not wildly packed. The rhythm of our meal was very uneven. We waited inordinately long for most things except the check. We asked our waiter for help in choosing the elements of our cheese flight, but he seemed distracted and mumbled his... More

I've visited Django about a dozen times over the past seven years, and i have always been impressed with its great food. Django is one of more upscale restaurants in Des Moines. It features French food, with oysters on the half shell and a full bar. Django's menu parallel's Julia Child's "The Art of French Cooking". Every entree I have... More

First time to Django and we would definitely return. The food and service were outstanding, and they have a great bar area. I'm sorry we did not get any photos to share of this very nice restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended from a colleague and I was very pleased . Went to dinner with 4 of us. We started out trying the Summer Sangria- not too sweet or too tart but very refreshing. Next we had the cheese and charcuterie tray...WOW!!! Wonderful variety and plenty for the 4 of us. I had the roasted beet salad (yummy... More

I spent the night at the Hotel Fort des Moines in which the restaurant resides and had both lunch and dinner at Django. For dinner I had the Croque Monsieur (French Ham and Cheese Sandwich) with fries and the small portion Django Salad. The sandwich was very good, but the thin crisp fries and the salad were both outstanding and... More

I recently ate dinner at Django for a business function. Our hosts were from New York and we had people from Chicago, Des Moines and other parts of the country. We ate in a private dining room. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. Since we had a pretty big group, we had a limited menu. Choices were a... More

We are transplants to Des Moines and have been actively investigating the dining scene. The food is good during both lunch and dinner and the service is very consistent. This is a good place for a business lunch and is family friendly as well.
