Django Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Was one of my favorite restaurants in the Des Moines area. We brought a bottle of wine with us and despite being told three times they would decant it we opened and poured it ourselves. Ordered food only to wait 50 minutes for it to arrive...some cold. The meal lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes. By the time we finished we were wore out. George needs to spend more time at this location....it's not what it once was.

Django is our go-to date night location. The no corking fee is a huge draw, but the food is always amazing. The burgers are fabulous and my favorite, Filet Rossini, is always cooked to perfection! The seasonal squash soup was a pleasant surprise and the brussels sprouts appetizer is a must try!

My niece ran the Des Moines marathon and I was in charge of organizing a family brunch spot for people of all ages and food likes and dislikes. I am not from Des Moines so I relied on Open Table for suggestions. This was a GREAT one! And, being a group of 9, we could get a table for all of us at the time we needed. The food was great, tho my bacon was missing from my crepes. I specifically ordered that dish because it had bacon . We were busy eating and talking and I kept looking for it inside but it just wasn't there. I got to wondering had I just imagined that it was in the dish so I didn't say anything but as soon as I got to the car I got on the phone and looked it up and yes, there was supposed to be bacon ....oh well, my fault for not asking. Everybody's food was fabulous and I think we all had something different. We all decided that we would love to return when Des Moines is the destination again. Thanks for the suggestion!!

Django was just okay and if I ever come back to Des Moines, I probably would pick a different restaurant. I made my reservation for 1, but they sat me at a table for 2 and poured water for 2. The waitress took my drink order and after about 10-15 min, I had to flag her down to take my order. Guess solo dining is not a common thing at Django. I ordered the beef bourguignon and it had good flavor, but was way too garlicky.
The bread was great on a plus side!

Django provided a great dinning experience and excellent food. The restaurant was able to accommodate a special request for a birthday and business dinner. The server was prompt and attentive throughout the meal and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food and service were excellent as always but a very loud large party in the main dining area was so rude that they made the experience almost intolerable. If I find a similar situation in the future I will choose to dine elsewhere.

We had an excellent experience. We had to decrease our reservation numbers and we ran behind, but Sarah did a great job accommodating us and everyone there was so hospitable. The food was great and timely. We enjoyed ourselves very much. We had a superb waiter.

The food was wonderful and for a relatively reasonable cost. The service was not as great and the dining room is a bit crowded so avoid the rush times because seating can have you back to back with another customer. However, everything was delicious. Check out the dessert menu!

While the food was very good the service was less so. Our appetizer arrived in good time and was excellent as was the salad. Unfortunately, in trying to space the courses it appeared our server forgot to turn our main course orders in. The restaurant was not that busy and it took 45 minutes for our main course to arrive after we had finished our salad. We had ordered salmon and a mac & cheese for the main course. The server did bring us an excellent cheesecake "on the house" for dessert but by then my wife just wanted to pay the bill and leave.

Party of four, 2 beef fillets 1 scallop 1 ham sandwich 2 domestic beers each 3 salads(4 bucks a piece extra, we assumed salads were included in the 43 dollar fillet meal price... waiter didn't tell but we didn't ask) $240.00 bill for all of us. Salads took 30 min to come out, food about 30 after that, waiter was scarce, but did OK. One of our steaks(med rare order) was way overdone sent back (she rarely sends anything back being a waitress, she knows how it feels) and got a new one that was very rare, she ate half of it. They took off one drink from the bill for that also. The wife's scallops were VERY fishy smelling/ tasting. My fillet was done perfectly the potatoes and broccoli were good. If I go back i'm getting the ham sandwich with fried egg on top and onion rings it was huge and came with a generous portion of very tasty onion rings. This restaurant to me is a once a year or so deal and the second time we have went there, I would go more if they improved on quality control and service but to me it is way overpriced for spotty CQ. We eat out a lot and work in food service so I usually go easy on people, but not at these prices. On a 100 scale I give them an 85

Very nice time here, the waiter Josh was perfectly attentive. The Food was great, we love to bring our own bottle of wine to this place (no Corking fee) it makes for a very affordable nice date night. We will be back time and time again.

We went there before a show at the Civic Center. The waitress was really great and mindful of our time and asked if we needed to be out at a certain time. We had happy hour cocktails that were so good and priced excellent! We ordered appetizers and the Oysters Rockefeller were delish - only bad part is that they had meat in them which is non traditional and we were with a vegetarian....... They were so good though 😁

My husband and I enjoyed a dinner out for our 52nd Anniversary. The food and service were wonderful!! Our waiter was so expert in his service and so smart. (He wants to specialize in the wine field.) The food was very gourmet and French tasting...delicious! I had chicken and my husband had a steak. We will definitely be back the next time we want a wonderful dinner out!
