    This is my second visit to Range. The food does not disappoint -- all quite delicious and interesting, thought some more that others. BBQ oysters were very tasty, as was the heirloom tomato, watermelon and foam salad. The pizza was good, not phenomenal and I would say the same for the roasted peppers. Both could benefit from more cheese and some cheese respectively. Our drinks and wine were very good. As with my first visit, I was impressed with the quality of the food and the attention to detail. At the end, again I was surprised by how much some late night snacks ended up costing.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Range the other night, and we were really blown away by the level of service. Our server Nick, was fantastic - personable, attentive, helpful, funny. The food was just as outstanding - order the scallops! Wow! From our cocktails to the snippet of a Shakespeare sonnet written in chocolate on our gratis plate of dessert, our expectations were exceeded. Bravo!

    Range has matured over these past 18 months. Bryan Voltaggio's approach has evolved, resulting in a more sophisticated, smoother dining experience than when the restaurant first opened. The food is excellent...inventive, well prepared, with great flavor, texture and composition. The service is first rate. The addition of the separate Italian-inspired fine dining Aggio inside Range's space could easily have been a distraction, but it's actually improved the ambiance and added to the look, feel and environment of the restaurant. Highly recommended!

    I've been to Range twice, and each time I've left unimpressed. It has such potential, but the food is just not as good as it should be for the prices and the chef. (In fact, I've left both times with a bit of a stomach ache.) The cocktails were fantastic though!

    I was looking forward to going to Range, we hadn't been there in a while. I was definitely disappointed. It was very cold inside the restaurant, uncomfortably so. It was very loud-hard to talk to the friends who we were meeting. We had to keep leaning across the table to hear each other. The food was mediocre. I ordered a main course and I did not care for the vegetable that was listed as the included side dish-I asked if I could just have some greens with my fish, the plate came with just the fish. I guess the chef was unwilling to make any kind of a substitute. The service was also way too fast! As they were removing our appetizer plates, they were putting down our main courses-no time in between. We may not try again~

    I came here for my birthday with my family and having been two years ago was expecting the same. Boy was I wrong, the service was terrible, it took 25 minutes to get a drink. The menu has not changed much since they opened and the food was mediocre. With so many good places to go in DC, this one is now off my list. I think Bryan V needs to pay some attention, it is turning into a basic mall restaurant.

    The bar itself is worth attending with the special cocktails and full menu. Small portions, easily shared, but an entree, appetizer, and desert was enough for all. Not an inexpensive place but well worth the price.

    Wanted to try this Voltaggio hot spot; seating makes it a challenge to hear your dining companions--the tables are pretty wide with double seat banquettes instead of chairs. The place when full is very noisy. The food is very good when you get it.... The service from the kitchen the evening we were there was very slow incluiding the tables around us, but the staff/mgr were very responsive to addressing the delay with extra drinks and dessert at no charge for our table of 2.

  • Could be so much better
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 9/5/2014
    I should say that I do like Range and frequent it with some regularity. The reason for my lackluster review is that it could be SO much better. The food is interesting and quite good, but dinner at Range feels rather like a production line - they want you in and out, everything is rushed - from the number of times and how quickly you are asked if you are ready to order to the fact they clear plates while you are still eating. Range - you should know better. Really. Slow the process down - not too slow, but at least make diners feel as though it's okay to take a breath every now and then.

    I went to Range as a treat to a friend for his birthday. The location is interesting as it's in a mall, but otherwise it was a great experience! We started off with a few cocktails at the bar; the bartenders were knowledgable and helpful and assisted in picking unique cocktails we both enjoyed! (I had the urban conformist #2 and lot of lizards and both were tasty and refreshing for summer!). We then went to our table and the sommelier helped in picking out a great bottle. We started with the cheddar jalapeno biscuits (melted in your mouth they were so good!) and the cheese plate. Both were excellent choices. For entrees, i tried a sausage dish and my friend had the pork dish...again, great flavor and exceptional taste!

    Two couples celebrating their 25yr and 23yr wedding anniversaries. Staff went out of their way to make it feel special. Hostess sat us the "private dining" area, that wasn't too private. The design and layout of the restaurant is very unique, music playing is upbeat (Wheezer, Foo Fighters, etc.). Very good drink selection and the waiter was knowledgable and offered recommendations. Appetizers superb (shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad, gazpacho) and portions were large. Main course depended on what you ordered (salmon good but very small portion, hanger steak very good, pork duo very good, bucatini carbonara very good but small portion). Deserts all very good. Service a little slow. Coordinated for flowers thru Flowerpetal...outstanding!

    Too much stone and too much glass = too loud restaurant. Why can't new places get this simple concept? Menu is exceptionally unique, but when the food comes, descriptions are better than the taste combos.The salmon tartar -- typical.The pizza mediocre.The bone marrow interesting, but I'd never order it again. Pork rinds good--the sauce truly complimented their crunchiness. The white whole fish with citrus taste was incredible, but again, a hefty $37. Also, a clear glass sliding door into a women's bathroom isn't a good idea. Plus, I really like to have enough light to see into the mirrors to reapply make up--impossible in the bathroom darkness. Lastly,if you don't offer a parking lot, at least validate the parking deck!

    Went for lunch on Saturday, lunch and brunch type entrees. Lots of nice "touches" such as the square ice cubes, iced tea brought to the table in individual bottles. The cocktails looked interesting but we didn't have one. I had the lobster roll which was in spicy remoulade which was vert good but there was way too much of it -the lobster should have been the main ingredient not the sauce. Friend had pulled pork - very tasty and a bit on the sweet side. Portions were not huge but had a generous portion of fries. Love the sofa seating, very comfortable. Service started out good but slowed down as other diners arrived although the restaurant was far from crowded. Downside - expensive $75 for two w/out alcohol or dessert.

    Very good food (scallops, kale caesar especially) but the service was hit and miss, especially the wine service. Took forever to get the sommelier to our table for a recommendation -- I had to get up and complain. Then the waiter offered to take notes on what I wanted and pass them to the sommelier! Bizarre. On the plus side, when I told the hostess that our table was to noisy, she promptly reseated us.

    Don't go there hungry or you might leave hungry. Food was mostly delicious; portions extremely small and overpriced. For example pork came with approximately one tablespoon's worth of mashed potatoes and a sprinkle of Range's version of succotash. Pizza (ricotta cheese) was nothing special. Beet salad had no greens; tiny pieces of beets although was tasty. Brussels sprouts were very good and as a side dish was a more generous portion.

    We went fro Sunday brunch during restaurant week - very quiet on an August Sunday. Food was very good and nicely served with the exception of a watermelon sorbet that was pale pink and tasteless. especially liked the hangar steak - fine saucing. Range is my go to place for meeting people who drive down the Bethesda corridor and of course need parking. ALso very convenient to Metro and Wisconsin Ave busess which I use since I live in Gtown. I have given the ambience a lower rating because I am not sure what I make of a view of a large shopping mall and hotel.

    i must say i was bummed ... our first impression was an incredibly rude hostess. The food was good we had appetizers, main course and dessert (i had the carbonara which was really good, my husband had the scallops which were also quite good), the wine selection wonderful and our server was attentive but overall i was underwhelmed - there was nothing about the experience that made me feel i need to repeat it. Perhaps i was clouded by the rudeness we were greeted with on arrival, but if you are looking for the triple aim (food, service and atmosphere) i think you will do better elsewhere.

    Four of us all liked our food, which included hanger steak, salmon, and the carbonara, but only the salmon was excellent. The bread basket was fantastic, especially the cornbread, and the desserts were to die for, especially the ice cream sandwiches. The service was uneven. When the bread basket came, large plates were put at each place. Before we could even help ourselves to the bread, our salads arrived, so there was much confusion about where the plates should go. Five minutes later our entrees arrived. We felt very rushed. Once we got the entrees, we could eat them at a leisurely pace, but once we ordered dessert, we waited an eternity to get it. One of us had dined here many times before and the service had always been excellent.

    Overall, the food was good, but not exceptional. The beet salad appetizer was pretty standard. The hangar steak was served quite rare, not medium-rare, and the meat was actually too tender, to the point of falling aprt when cut, though the taste was fine without the thick sauces. The mushroom/goat cheese pizza was very good, though the crust was very chewy. The service was excellent. The restaurant got very noisy as it filled up.

    Our server, Remy, provided outstanding service - efficient, friendly, knowledgeable. Would hire her in a second. The food was hit or miss. Gazpacho and Murray's chicken were excellent, hanger steak was lackluster - burned but not crusted, stringy. The vegetables accompanying the steak were a mess of muddy flavors. The semifreddo dessert just didn't work while the ice cream sandwiches were very good without being special.

    The restaurant was FREEZING. Multiple patrons near our table commented on the air temperature. It was hard to enjoy the food because the restaurant was too cold. Food was good, although incredibly small portions and was surprised that the bread was an additional charge. The service was poor. Plates were not cleared after we were done eating and our second course was brought out with a table full of dirty plates. The bread didn't even come until after our appetizer. Also the server did not explain anything on the menu. For a nice fine dining experience, usually the server discusses the menu and talks about any specials or the concept of the restaurant. We probably will not be back.
