A must stop for Sunday brunch

We have had brunch here a couple of times. Our last visit involved a group of 12. My wife had the seafood crepes and I had the black and blue burger. Both were fantastic meals. It is hard to find a place that pleases everyone in a large group, but everyone was very happy with their meal.

We had heard great things about Django and decided to try it on a Friday evening. It started off fine, but after giving us the menus and taking our order, we didn't hear from our waitress, Jill for 37 minutes. Meanwhile the tables next to us were getting extremely fast and good service. Watching a table that arrived after us,... More

After reading all the great reviews, I was disappointed by my Django experience. I had a grouper special and it was just Ok. The sides it was served with were actually a lot better than the fish. Great atmosphere and good wine list. I'd try again and order something different.

We took our family, a group of 6, to Django for a Friday night celebratory meal. We started with drinks and wine. We ordered a bottle of house pinot noir but we were not very happy with the wine. Later we tried the Steelhead pinot which was better. We had 2 appetizers, the calamari and the poutine. Both were good... More

Ate here once and it was alright. A fine dining place that maybe tries to hard...high priced and small portions. Food was good. I might eat here again.

The menu selection is outstanding...truly something for everyone. We started off with appetizers - calamari and Baked Ratatouille. Both were excellent. For dinner, I had the Grilled Niman Ranch Pork Chops. While the chops were excellent, the bed of sweet potato hash with smoked ham, red onion and corn was amazingly good. Two others in our party had the Coq... More

Quite a nice restaurant. We dined as a group in a private room, which may have given us an advantage, but the service was great. The scallops were perhaps the best I have ever had in a landlocked state. Just wish there had been more! Cheesecake was delightfully creamy.

I was looking for something different when I met my wife and went out for my birthday lunch. For what is supposed to be an upscale dining experience, the place lacked attention to detail. All of the tabled glasses were spotty, the windows were smeared and dust collected on woodwork. Not dirty, just not super clean either. The service was... More

Nice place to have dinner. Very relaxing - good drinks and the food is fantastic! It can be loud if you are in one of the enclosed rooms.

Great go to restaurant for downtown. We made reservations for six but had seven and the staff easily accommodated the change. We had brought several bottles of wine and Prosecco and love that they do not have a corkage fee! The girls raved about the Brussel Sprouts. Great evening with great food and service. Highly recommend.
