We stop here quite often when we are downtown for shows or events. We are typically seated right away, without prior reservations. The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Food selection is excellent and well prepared. Nice selection of cheeses on the cheese board.

I received a water glass with lip prints from the last lady that drank from it. I told the waitress and she replaced it. We ordered the restaurant week selection but the waitress took both my wife's forks and knife after the appetizer. She cleared the bread plates when we really would have liked some more bread even if it... More

Django has plenty of great reviews which influenced me to try brunch there. Sadly, my dining experience was just average wasn't that great.The server was inattentive as she seemingly preferred to cater to a larger party rather than my group of 3. She also got my order completely wrong and did not offer anything as a substitute or as consolation.... More

Brunch at Django is one of the best experiences in Des Moines on a Sunday morning. The selection of food is diverse enough to appeal to any group of people coming in, to fit any style of food they want.

Django has consistently good food for a reasonable price. And... finding a decent restaurant with NO corkage fee is very rare. Thus, a great place for wine lovers.

This is one of my favorite spots of a special occasion. The location is an old hotel in downtown Des Moines, which makes for a great setting. The service is impeccable. The food is amazing. Even if you just want appetizers and drinks, the bar is a fun place to sit out and hang out. If you havent been here... More

My husband and I visited Django for the first time and we will make sure to visit again. Our waiter was awesome and patient with us since it was our first time there we took a little longer looking over the menu but he didn't mind at all. He gave us plenty of time to chose what we wanted. He... More

I have been to Django alone, as a couple, with small groups and large, and my experience has always been great. Sit at the bar for $1 oysters and $5 martinis and appetizers at happy hour. Small booths and tables are perfect for intimate dinners. Larger tables and high tops are great for small groups, and the large party room... More
