Great menu

Django is one of our favorite lunch spots. Their French inspired menu is very tasty. They have Brussel sprouts on the appetizer menu that are outstanding. A must have with any order.

Used Open Table to setup a reservation and arrived early on a Thursday night, had no problem getting a table. We had the Sea Scallops and Bouillabaisse entrees, as you can see from the photos on TA the presentation on the Sea Scallops was great, my wife was happy with her choice and really liked the bed of mashed potatoes...

Started off with an order of calamari that had a small fried pepper that was delightfully sweet. Main course was wonderful bouillabaisse! Rich and flavorful. Dinner bill was not bad for the quality of food and service. Must go for a nice dinner.

The title says it all. Never had a bad meal here. it's a great place to take that "special" bottle of wine -- you know the one, it cost more than you usually pay and you're not sure when you're going to drink it because it seems like it deserves a special occasion. Then someday it's turned into expensive vinegar.... More

You don't expect to find a great restaurant attached to a hotel, but this one works. Great French food(without being snooty - American food too for the people in your party who just want a steak.), excellent wine list (or bring your own and pay NO corkage fee), and just-right service. The ambiance is comfortable and casual bistro style. The... More

My girlfriends and I love coordinating a fun, slightly fancier dinner a few times a year and Django is almost always our go-to spot. First, no corkage fee. Ever. We somehow end up with more bottles of wine than people in our group and the servers never roll their eyes. Most recently, we visited for a friend's bachelorette party. The... More

I will start off by saying the steak and coq au vin were excellent! We came for my birthday and the server offered to give us a "free desert". When we got our check the dessert was not comped. I didn't feel like putting up a fuss so I just paid and left. I still enjoyed my experience and the... More

We've been there 3 times now and haven't had a great meal yet. we had appetizers on this visit. Onion rings were over cooked and cold. Crab cakes looked like tator tots and were not good. The calamari was decent. The Brussel sprouts were very good. Everything was served with the same sauce. Poor service.

1st of all we only had desert and I had a beer. The beer was a white ale which was terrible - I guess I don't like white ales - but no IPA's on the menu that I could find. The chocolate cake was awesome, the waitress was awesome, and the food that I saw others eating looked VERY VERY... More

My husband and I love this restaurant. I would give it five stars, but almost every time we go it is hard to talk because it's very loud. This could be our ears, but I think it's the design of the restaurant. Noisiness mentioned, the food is outstanding. It's a really fun place to eat; from the people who work... More
