    Had a late lunch/early dinner at Range. It was spectacular. We tired an array of dishes from several cheeses and meats to 3 entrees each being better than the last. The lamb's neck was a dish blew my mind it was so tender and unlike anything I've ever had before. The scallops were spectacular (LOVED) and the pork belly - melt in your mouth! The best I've ever had! The cocktails we inventive and delicious. One of the best meals I've ever had. I'll be back. For those of you taking off stars for not having your parking validated and not liking the mirror in the bathroom - shame on you. If you don't like where you are seated - ask for a different table, if you don't want to pay for parking - park on the street! not that hard people.

    The restaurant was well laid out, the cheese and meat plates were incredible, but there was one minor slip up that really soured my experience. My sister is allergic to fish. Not hives allergic, anaphylaxis allergic. That being said, she asked if there was an form of fish in one of the pates and the waiter who delivered the food (not our normal waitress) never came back with an answer. It doesn't matter how nice a restaurant is, or how kind the staff, or how good the food...this is unacceptable. That being said, this would have been a four-star review otherwise as the wine was incredible, the food delicious, and our waitress was personable. Too bad...

    We were a bit disappointed as we all (6) had eaten at Range a year or so ago. The service was very spotty. Hard to get our waiters attention. The wait between courses was very slow. The restaurant was not busy so not sure why the delay in service. The kale caesar salad was delicious as were the brussels sprouts. The pizza was dry and not very tasty. We were unable to slice it successfully. We all felt something was lacking in our dining experience. They also do not pay for parking in the Mall. Parking is $10 in the garage. The only other dining spot in the mall does cover parking.

    Very mediocre food. Tastiest part of the bland salmon dish was the capers. $14 for a tiny bowl of totally plain pasta for a child, and $28 for an off menu Bolognaise described as 'tastes like your lipstick'. Cheery server was the only saving grace (and making off menu item, but then foodie kids finding nothing on the menu was a first). However, other staff were grumpy, and even finding the table seemed hard for our guide! Been once out of curiosity, but will never return.

    We dined early Sunday evening, so noise was not an issue because the restaurant was about 25 percent full. The food was excellent. The decor was very nice. However, sitting next to the floor to ceiling windows, looking down upon the roof to Starbucks and at 20 people staring into their cellphones ruined the evening. After looking around the restaurant, we might try going back to the Aggio portion for a special occasion.

    This was our 4th time at this restaurant and sadly we are unlikely to ever go back. We've been to several group events here where the food was plentiful, elegant, and the service delightful. However this evening when we were only 4 people dining, 2 of the 4 entrees were completely Inedible! The pizza was undercooked, top heavy with too many ingredients and the bucatini carbonara was a gloppy, tasteless mess. The kale ceaser was good as was the corn side, but all in all, not worth the ridiculously inflated Chevy Chase pricing, even though they didn't charge us for the undercooked pizza.

    We went way out of our way on our long weekend in DC to experience a Bryan Voltaggio restaurant. I did a lot of rooting for him during his Top Chef seasons and was looking forward to the chance to taste his food. I checked out the lunch menu and was looking forward to the bread basket, potatoes and brussel sprouts. From the website, I didn't realize that it was brunch on Sunday. Only the bread was on the menu, which was great Our entree choices were not worth the 2 hour RT with a limited subway schedule to have brunch. I wish we had saved a lot of money and stayed in DC or gone to Lunch Box instead. I chose the restaurant, because reviews said the lines were long at Lunch Box, but there was no line on the weekend.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
