    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.

    After visiting ink in LA and VOLT in Fredrick I was hoping for a comparable experience, yet disappointed. Location was in a mall that required parking in a onsite garage but no parking validation... (Cheap). Looking out to the mall floor (H&M) was out of character of the ambiance. Server was slow, pushed the Brussels sprouts too much (3 times)...forgot the cornbread and blamed its timing on the kitchen as opp

    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.

    Have been to Range on many occassions, never during Restaurant Week. We were not disappointed. NIce choices; I had the kale ceasar salad, delicious as always and the shellfish pasta for the entree. The shrimp in the pasta tasted as if it had been plucked from the ocean moments earlier. My husband had the gazpacho with crab - delish! The hangar steak was cooked just right and was wonderful for that cut of meat. The desserts were gianormous and delicious - ice cream sandwiches; quality ice cream encased in scrumptious cookies.

    I'd like to say that I was excited by this restaurant because I was looking forward to this new restaurant in the neighborhood, but it was just average. Certainly acceptable for restaurant week but I would not return at regular prices. Speaking from a wealth of experience in 3 star Michelin guide restaurants in Europe, it wouldn't even have made it to the bistrot level of food. Kale Cesar salad and the gazpatcho were the best but the Margarita pizza gave one of our group indigestion. The Hake sandwich was watery. I had to throw away the bun and eat the fish separately, but it was almost unseasoned, it was so tasteless.

    We visited for restaurant week. The caesar salad was made with kale which over powered all the other flavors and disappointed all that ordered. The steak dishes were spot on and the deserts were decent but again the coffee flavors over powered the rest of the dish. The host set us quickly and was very friendly. The waitress however had to be flagged down between courses and there was a long time between courses. It was a full night during restaurant week so i hope it was unusual. We were seated near the kitchen which normally would be neat but to compensate for the kitchen heat, it felt like we were in an ice box. Of our party, no one was particularly impressed by the food. It was ok faire. Most impressive were the dark, modern bathrooms

    We were celebrating. One of us had received a new job offer. Another had recovered from a dire medical situation. We hadn't seen each other in a long while, and we were ready for a good time. Range delivered in every way. We arrived when the restaurant was not very full. We were greeted warmly. The food was expertly prepared; the portions were just right, and the service was extraordinary. We left completely satisfied and happy, and to the good wishes of the front of the house. We went back to get some treats from the bakery, and later that evening were delighted by that as well. A beautiful evening.

    Met with a work colleague for a working lunch. It happened to be Restaurant Week in our area. The lunch portions were just right and wonderfully prepared - Range always has a slight twist in its preparation but never so much that one wonders what the chef was thinking.... The service was attentive while not being intrusive. Many hard surfaces so noise level can be a bit overwhelming. Great value. LOVE Range!

    Range was disappointing in evey way. The noise level and ambience left a lot to be desired, we paid 16 dollars for an heirloom tomato salad (that showed up in the bill as $17) that had about five small bites, and none of the food was particularly tasty. I wanted to love it but I was disappointed all around. Save your money and go someplace else.
