Great food but small portions and oh the wait! – We waited 50 minutes for our appetizers and then another 40 min. for our entrees. Everyone got bread except for us. We had to ask twice to get some, even after we had been there well over an hour. We asked for something to chill the wine (4 times) and they brought an earthen jar with about 5 ice cubes in the bottom. When we asked for some more ice, they brought another 5 small cubes. Three of us had the filet ($27.00) which was 3 pieces of meat, each piece about 2 in. X 2 in. All of the food was delicious but the portions were small and the wait was inexcusable!
So Cute – What a cute little place and the food is amamzing! A great date place or place to eat with the girls! You at least need to try it!
incredible – This place so far exceeded my expectations that I'm still in shock. Exceptional attention to detail - in the food, service, atmosphere, etc. I can see why this place is so packed on the weekends...I went on a thursday and it was half full and very comfortable. I'll definitely return!
Incredible Food, Get a Decent Table – This byob far exceeded my expectations. As noted, the flower-pot bread is fantastic. The amuse-bouche was also a nice touch - not typically expected at a restaurant in this price range. In terms of appitizers I wholeheartedly suggest both the squash soup and the orchetto (spelling?). Both were complex in flavor and impressive in taste. In terms of entrees, all four we tried at my table were excellent but the lamb was a total standout. In many ways, the sides are more impressive than the focus of the entrees. Each dish seemed to have intriguing and delicious sides.
My only complaint: when we got there they tried to seat us at a horrible table. First of all it was located under a stairwell and tall people could not sit on one side. Also it was set for four and we had made a reservation for five. Once we convinced them to seat us elsewhere, I have no other complaints about the service.
Django is definetly a standout BYOB in the city and should not be missed!
Waited nearly 30 minutes before our waitress took our order!! – We dined at Django on a Saturday night. To be expected the place was incredibly busy. We had a reservation, but we still had a 10 minute wait for our table. Once we finally sat, a server came to open our wine. My wine glass had food chunks, and clearly was not cleaned. From there, it took 30 minutes until we saw our server again! And she was a bit abrasive and did not take time to explain dishes that we had questions regarding ingredients, etc. She was clearly annoyed. The dishes came out in a timely fashion once we were able to place our order. The gnocchi was very good, and the goat cheese salad was good as well. I had the Bass for dinner, it was a fresh dish but limited in flavor. My husband had the steak, it was good, cooked perfectly, but very very small. We are avid diners among the BYOB circuit. Among the excellent offerings Philly has, Django is ranked fairly low on my list as one of my least favorite.
Amazing Food, Great Service, Tight Seating, but worth it GO HERE!!! – This was amazing. We went on Valentines day. The menu was amazing, the food was delicious. Very seasonal so the menu always seems like it changes, but I think thats why we liked it. I was unbelievable happy with the food, the combinations read oddly, but taste amazing. BYOB is also amazing. Since you aren't paying for overpriced liquor the place is very very affordable. They have $30 price fix on Mondays i hear for three course, which is ridiculous for the food you get. I would be happy to pay more. It was a bit more since it was a special holiday menu, but we received 7 courses for $75 each.
I read some previous reviews about people feeling like they were rushed out the door. We didnt experience this at all, even though we were in the best table in the house. The waitress were very nice and attentive. and we never felt rushed.
SEATING HOWEVER IS TIGHT! RESERVE A CERTAIN TABLE WHEN MAKING RESERVATIONS
Ask for the small table the sits alone by the kitchen, or one of the four tables in the front of the restaurant. After reading reviews I knew it would be tight so I called way ahead and asked for the small back table, a great move, it very intimate compared to the rest of the seating. Although when I arrived they didn't seat me there, we were at a very very very tight table with only about four inches if less inbetween our neighbors.
But the table I reserved was open and obviously held. I informed the waitress that I had made a reservation months in advance for that table and I was immediately seated there. So no problem.
Go here you will be happy.
Thanks Django for an amazing holiday. My boyfriend wants to go back very very soon.
Keep it going from Kassena & Anthony
Fabulous – This was a great dining experience. The service was great. We were seated promptly and well taken care of. Dinner began with a duck amuse-bouche which was very delicious. Bread, served in little flower pots was also incredibly delicious. The entrees were accordingly appetizing and the dessert was fantastic. For the quality of food which you receive, the price is definitely affordable. They are even doing a restaurant-week type special on Monday nights this winter, so the price just gets better. Ambiance is the only area where they could improve, as it is currently a bit spartan and haphazard. Overall an amazing restaurant and definitely worth a look.
The best French Bistro in town! – This little restaurant is simply the best French Bistro in town! The service is always above par. The food is divine, and the atmosphere is cozy. I was very fearful after the restaurant changed owners but it is still as good as ever! If not better. Whenever I have people in from out of town I take them here and they have all raved about it! Plus, it's BYO so take your best bottle of vino. This place is worth taking a great bottle of wine!
well worth the money – This place prepares food as if its prices were much higher than the just mid-20s for an entree. There's not a lot of choices on the menu but everything is so delicious that I honestly thought I could eat everything on the menu, even though I normally could not. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Last time we were there-Aug 2- somebody's sapphire fell out of their bracelet and most everybody stopped eating to help find it- we did.
Funky yet gourmet. You won't be disappointed, and the desserts we got were as good as the other stuff.
