    All in All it was a good experience. The menu is expansive, which isn't always a good thing. The Foie Gras was very good, was a tremendous serving, which because i was the only one eating it was too much just for me. The server offered more bread to spread it on after I ran out, which was good and attentive, I just wish with so much it was given in the first place. The Ham was decent, but not memorable.The drinks were interesting. The mixed drinks seemed to have stories to go with their unique names, but I'm not sure my server knew enough being new about the drink and food menu to help with everything. He was very attentive, and made up for any lack of product knowledge with good recommendations when asked We both had amazing steaks.

    I love all of Chef Voltaggio's restaurants, and was excited to try Range. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is energetic, and has a modern feel. I went with 4 friends, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We each ordered 3-4 small plates and were overwhelmed with food, so I'd recommend starting out with two plates. The food was FANTASTIC, I am never disappointed when I eat at a Voltaggio restaurant and it's one of the few places I think dropping $75 on dinner is well worth the price.

    Experience was bad from the hostess to dessert. The hostess was very unfriendly, and we waited for our reservation for quite awhile while they figured out where to put us. Seating is uncomfortable. Servers continually tried clearing our plates before we ate what was on it. They continued to rush us thru the entire meal. We were a party of four, and our conversations were constantly interrupted by waiters either asking to clear our plates or fill our water glasses with "sparkling or tap"! Get different glasses or coasters so they know and don't have to ask which one I'm drinking. Some if the food items are delicious, others bad. The fois gras is just orange marmalade. Cornbread us great. Drinks are awful! We tried 4 different ones,

    All the food we tasted, including the bread basket was very tasty. Some things need to be ironed out, such as food arriving cold from some stations. The wine list, even though a bit heavy on young wines, is outstanding. However, the food is more compatible with robust wines, such as Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Zinfandel. For the afcicandos of Chef Brian Voltaggio, this is not Volt by any means but altogether a new experience that is a must...

    This place is HUGE! It just keeps going. We were seated towards the back of the restaurant where it was much quieter than the main section. Food was great, a little pricy for small plates, but all the food was delicious. Desserts could use some help; the best part of both desserts we tried was the ice creams and sorbets, so keep that in mind too. My favorite part of the whole experience was picking out wine with the sommelier. He approached us an offered to help select something, which was nice considering the 3 ring binder that holds their bottle selection! Very helpful, no pressure, and did a good job at pinning our price point w/o having to ask. I'd go back just to see him!

Staff is amazing in sharing info about a dish or a drink. (Don't miss the drinks.) And, the food is crazy good. Creative and perfectly executed. Outstanding flavors. Almost everything we had (two weeks in a row)was extraordinary. Killer marrow bones. ...Virgina prosciutto, pate, bacon maemelade, crudo tuna, lamb, beef cap....

    We had an excellent meal and will definitely return. Meal was well paced, and only two things were forgotten (more toast for our foie gras, and the actual madeira for the madeira glass that was brought). And the dessert cart never showed up. Hostesses need training and to learn people skills. Servers were all very friendly and sommelier was excellent. WINE LIST IS FABULOUS- great variety at all price points. LOVED the lamb w/ merguez, brussels sprouts, goat cheese ravioli, corn bread with bacon marmalade. Portions are larger than you would expect. Potted foie gras was very good, but rich and too much for two people. Beef cheek tagliatelle was recommended but just okay. Don't bother with full bread basket for only two people.

    The bread basket is tempting, but restrain yourself. The bacon marmalade presented with the warm wonderful corn bread will make you ask your server for more. It's addictive. The sampling of cheeses won't disappoint, and our lamb could be cut with a fork and melted as we ate it. Expensive, but money well spent.

    Whatever service issues Range may have had in it's first week of opening were certainly gone when we went this past Friday (January 11th), almost 1 month after opening. Our waiter was really helpful with the unique ordering/dining style which turned out to be so very exciting! We were able to try many items and the pacing of service was spot on. Our Sommelier was very helpful in picking wines that would suit out courses, tastes and budgets. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, but still upscale. It was just my husband and I, and we were tucked into a nice corner that was quieter and even romantic. I'm so excited about the future of this restaurant. My only regret is that we didn't go with a bigger group so we could order the entire menu!!

    Dined on 1/11/2013
    Although unusual brands of liquor are interesting, it would be nice if some standards were available as well. Portion of cheese served with charcuterie is ridiculously small for price or even for enjoyment. Menu often does not depict actual presentation. i.e. Flatbread, chickpea, garlic - turned out to be a few slices of almost uncooked pita with a small bowl of hummus. I consider flatbread to be grilled with toppings. Interesting offerings but need to take an almost trial by fire approach to see what is good and what should be excluded from future choices. Also, even though garage parking is available, some validation, for partial savings at least, should be offered.

    I went there with the family after the New Year. Heard about the chef being Top Chef. I gave the service a "very good" as opposed to "outstanding," because we made reservations but still had to wait close to 45 minutes to be seated. We could have been seated in the back section of the restaurant more quickly, but we would have been the only ones there, which would have killed the ambiance a bit. However, they did make it up to us by giving us a couple of dishes on the house, and the service was very apologetic and responsive as well. Also, they pretty quick in getting the dishes out to our table; no long waits there. The food was really great, especially for meat-lovers. I'd write more but no space left. The ravioli were excellent.

    The food was excellent & expertly prepared. Service was very disappointing. Our waiter forgot to serve us 3 of our items, was very slow & completely inattentive. He completely forgot our cheese course. He did not clear our first course before bringing our entrees. We also overheard a diner at the table next to us letting the same waiter know that he had forgotten to serve items to that table as well. Inexcusable. The wait staff should be better trained. When we arrived, the hostess asked if we would like to be seated at the counter so we could watch the kitchen. However she then proceeded to seat us in front of an oyster case which blocked our view of the kitchen, defeating the purpose of seating us there. Great food, poor service

    Went on a Sunday-never a top food night, but still was disappointed. The lobster was overcooked and flavorless and nothing had the expected pop of flavor. We ran the gamut of the menu and only vegetables stood out. Beyond those, nothing more flavorful than you would pick up at a Safeway. The service would be excellent if they weren't SO helpful -- we were all but fighting people off who repeatedly tried to take serving dishes and plates when they were filled with food and we were still eating. It was a very early dinner and the restaurant had only a handful of patrons even when we left, so it isn't as if we were keeping anyone from a table.

    After reading the other reviews, I made sure to let the hostess know that we had a 9pm reservation and, since we arrived at 730pm, we would be at the bar. Eventually, we found 2 seats at the bar. At 930pm, however, we went to the host stand to inquire about our table. She said she thought she had already seated us. Huh??? The food is great, and the bartenders were very attentive. However, the host stand staff need to get their act together.

It seems as though everyone is trying really hard, but there is a lack of coordination and effectiveness. From start to finish - there was no one at the front check in station when we arrived (for 10 minutes). They sat us and got our order rather quickly, but the drink orders took 45 minutes. I kept asking and asking other servers, all of whom noted my order, but it didn't come until well into the second course! I could have used a glass of wine. Also, 25 minutes after we placed our order they let us know they had run out of my husband's choice. Though they offered a complimentary dessert and glass of champagne for our troubl.

    Huge disappointment. We ordered 7 or 8 dishes. The first dishes, 2 hams, a cornbread and jalapeno biscuits, came out in a timely fashion. Our cocktails also came out in a reasonable timeframe. Then it all went wrong. While we waited for the next courses to come out, my husband had a second beer and I ordered a glass of wine. Still no more food. Our waiter never appeared again to check in on us or tell us what the hold up was. We had to flag a manager down to order another glass of wine and another beer. My glass of wine was poured right away. The beer never came. Neither did the food. We found the waiter and told him we would be leaving. He gave us the check for everything we had ordered.

    Add to Private Note to the Restaurant below: Being fans of Volt, we were looking forward to our dining experience at Range. When asked to be moved from a counter seat to a table, we were told tables were for reservations only. When we told them we had a reservation and would prefer a table, they accommodated us but as if it was an inconvenience for them and we were seated at a rather dark table. The wait staff and servers were pleasant and knowlegeable. We were surprised that no one asked if we wanted our drinks refilled except for water. While there were many men in suits walking around the resturant, not a one stopped to ask us how our dining experience was. With so many other restaurants choices in the area, not sure how quick to return.

    Stylish-casual restaurant with well thought out and often interesting/creative menu choices. The bread basket wwas excellent with all the small spreads. Our cold dish and pasta were very very good! Our meat selections were the biggest disappointment unfortunately. The lamb shank was roasted to perfection BUT had little to no flavor. Only the very very slightest hint of an herb which was impossible to discern. The venison was slightly tough and had zero flavor even when paired with its sauce. Our two vegetable dishes were good and dessert was a winner. The informal options on the dessert cart is a great idea and the brittle with chocolate was just wonderful. The salted caramel ice cream was delicious.
