Diner Reviews
  • "Had to wait 40 minutes, with reservation, for a table with a view of the H&M Kids storefront. Food was very good, but waitstaff was very disorganized. Second time visiting Range, maybe last?"

  • "My guest and I returned to this restaurant after a year or so. We were a little disappointed to find that the menu on July 19, 2014 was no longer the "tapas"-style, smaller portions, to share, which would have allowed for us to sample a wider variety of the Voltaggio-inspired cuisine. Mind-you, the food was still delicious. The heirloom tomato salad and scallops were wonderful. The hangar steak, per dining partner, was the best ever. The salmon tartare was good but not memorable. The wine list - Sauvignon Blanc selection - was fabulous. Desserts - custard with blackberry gelato was very good and ice cream sandwiches were difficult to eat, and did not seem as enjoyed by other guest. Oddly enough, the coffee was served relatively cold."

  • "Overpriced, unpleasant ambiance for a couple, noisy. Food was ok but menu choices weren't inspiring; the feeling was 'well I guess I'll get this because I certainly don't want that'. And that's not something that happens to me much. Was supposed to be nice evening out without the kids. Instead, it was a lingering feeling that we should have walked out the door while we could."

  • "Great food, good service, awesome cocktails. It would have been bit better if our server had provided more information on the food. It was my husband's first time at Range and I was hoping that he would get the same spiel I got the first time I was there (explanation of the restaurant's concept and menu, etc). Overall, the service was good. Thanks for the great food and cocktails! We'll be back."

  • "This restaurant may have seen better days. The staff are not well-informed about the menu and there appears to be a communication problem with the kitchen, at least when we dined. The food sounds better on the menu than it tastes."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We were expecting high quality given that it is a Brian Voltaggio restaurant. Boy! Were we shocked. We got warm white wine, cold fried oysters! My husbands pork dish was not hot. Our server Remy was lovely, but the whole food experience left us disappointed. Too bad. We are foodies and we expected so much more."

  • "Hit Volt twice & thankful this place is closer. (1st time we went to Volt it was amazing, 2nd time not worth the price or drive). Very modern space. Light and simplistic, but the details of the decor show class and thought. Went with the Goat Cheese Ravioli ($21 - braised pork & lamb ragu, smoked pecorino romano). Ragu was hearty; goat cheese gave a light/sour note to offset richness. Crusty bread a nice touch. Short Rib hash ($18 - soft eggs, beef, red onion, fingerling potatoes); another flavor star that was savory but not heavy. We did, however, add on the skillet of corn bread ($6 - chive butter & bacon marmalade). You need to 2 courses or a side unless you are going with the omelets or burgers. Servers and staff were great."

  • "I liked it better when it was small plates. It is now a regular menu."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Had the pizza for starters. It was fine, but not great. Then had the Halibut with gnochietti. It was okay, the pasta was kind of heavy. My companion had the langoustines. Didn't seem to like it at all. We skipped dessert because of the annoying menu. You are supposed to pick individual candies at $3 a piece. Who wants to do that? We thought it was ill-conceived. It was a birthday dinner that fell flat. Will not ever go back."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "This was our first time at Range and I am so happy we chose it. Great food and service. Definitely surprised that the presentation was so meticulous and the entrees were unique in their design. I will be returning to try a few other things I saw on the menu."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We ordered the pork rinds, which were delicious. For our meal we both ordered the lamb shank with corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and fried brussel sprouts. The trio went well together and we ate long after we should have stopped. We finished with the lemon dessert which was a great ending to a heavier dinner and hot day. I must say, while the food was delicious and service impeccable, I have been to Volt and Ink which are still among my favorites. I was hoping for more, but in comparison to those to delectable adventures I left Range wanting more. Don't get me wrong- I really can't say anything negative... it just didn't land among my Voltaggio favorites."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food was exactly what we expected-outstanding. The baker's basket with bacon jam,pepper jelly, and maple butter is definitely worth getting. I had the duo of pork and my partner had the scallops we shared everything potatoes and Brussels sprouts. The Brussels added fried onions and were crisp and flavorful. Everything potatoes left everything to be desired-so bland. The pork was tender and delicious. What really bummed us out was the unenthusiastic service. Our server was pleasant, but didn't explain a thing about the menu or restaurant concept, didn't make any suggestions on the menu or wine list. It really took away from the experience that we had to look up the restaurant online to find out what specialties were recommended."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Range was much better, more fun and more worthy of the very high prices, when it was a small plates restaurant. The food is still good, but now it's just another place with fancy food and inflated prices. Sharing lots of small plates was our main reason for eating at Range--without that interesting social aspect, it's just not worth the huge check."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We made a reservation for the 4th of July -- it was easy to get in. Since it wasn't crowded, the service was great, as was the food. We particularly liked the cornbread, roasted oysters, beet salad and the skirt steak with tomato grits. The scallops with coffee and popcorn foam worked! They were perfectly cooked and the coffee flavor was not strong, it just gave the dish some earthiness."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Terrific food and very interesting cocktails...hard to choose what to order! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening! Servers were wonderful too."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The food was delicious & our server was fantastic. She was enthusiastic and very attentive! Would definitely return! Too bad they don't validate parking though."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Once again, Range succeeds in providing all the ingredients of a memorable meal. If there are two or more of you dining and you like bread: Get the mixed basket of breads and spreads -- hard to stop eating! The scallops were excellent, cooked perfectly and plated with a soft foam and accompaniments on the plate -- delicious. Recently, I or my party have had the pizzas which are some of the best in DC."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Nothing spectacular comes to mind except the prices. Decent menu but nothing outstanding. Open kitchen was entertaining to watch. Prices for what was served on the other hand were more than a bit steep."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Everything on the menu looked great, and it was hard to choose one thing. We relied a lot on recommendations from our server, who was knowledgeable about the menu. We followed his recommendations and were really pleased with his suggestions. Ended up having a fantastic dinner, and look forward to returning. The question for next time is whether to order the same items again, or try something new..."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We had a great visit to Range. The food was superb and we enjoyed the unobstrusive, but attentive, service. It was a wonderful splurge. The mall setting is a little strange, but it is a beautiful mall (newly renovated) and the view within is interesting. We had a wonderful time and hope to visit again soon!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Absolutely delicious birthday dinner with small group of friends. The cocktails were fabulous, food was spectacular, and dessert choices so interesting including bites of different chocolates and sweets. The only (minor) detraction was the mall location - I ate my meal facing a neon sign of H&M clothing store."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I really was looking forward to dining at The Range. However, though the food was good, the experience did not match dining at the Volt. First, the Range is in a shopping mall. The view of people coming and going up and down the escalator is not very exciting. Second, the food selections were minimal for lunch, and not as interesting. Plus, the portions were small. My friend and I both had the ravioli stuffed with goat cheese. The pasta was chewy. The lamb and pork sauce was flavorful. The whole dish was small, with no sides, and pricey. Third, bread was an extra price. There are lots of other choices that provide better food, service and ambiance. The restaurant is trading on the chef's reputation at The Volt--there is no comparison."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "They have gone out of the way to make the food and atmosphere different and timely. They succeed in making it a fun place. Focus on Domain beverages a bit too pricey. Service is well meaning but novice. Hope they ripen."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This was our first time at Range. We had heard about Voltaggio's cooking and were eager to try it. All of the food was good and looked beautiful on the plate, but some mixtures of flavors didn't work. Coffee coating on scallops? Why put such a strong flavor on something that is already tasty? More generally, the best dishes were the ones that let natural flavors shine through. This restaurant could use a tasting menu, or an early bird special, or some small plates, so that diners can try out more offerings."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I heard good things about the restaurant and the chef's reputation with Voltin Frederick precedes his new restaurants. I had high expectations. Food was flavorful, no doubt but prices were extremely on the high end. Most entrees were above $30 and the limited offerings were not really worth coming back unless I want to spend $$$. The sofa type seats were not comfortable and noise level was high once the restaurant got crowded.There were 2 specials, which were both meat entrees but our waitress did not provide enough info that is think that spending $69 and $99 for these entrees were worth the price. Our waitress was very friendly, however, she was not attentive. There were many men and women in suits but their purpose was a mystery."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "sorry, but service was slow, food was lukewarm at best, it was cold, dark and noisy. Liked the old menu much better."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "This is my third visit and I was dissapointed. The menu had no changes. Last time there was a lobster salad that I was looking forward to. And it was very noicy at 1 in the afternoon. Prices were high for what we were getting. I had a beet salad which was basically beats -no greens,"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Our lunch was to be a birthday celebration - Range was a poor choice. Very limited menu - we wondered why they bother to open at lunch. Our lamb burgers were not prepared as we had requested - had to send them back. Won't be returning to Range."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "This was my second time here. First time was for brunch and I loved it. Second time was for dinner. The food was quite good but the portion was absurdly small - especially for $32. I ordered the sea bass and I don't think there was more than 3 oz of fish on the plate. The other ingredients were really like garnishes; definitely not sides. Glad we ordered a bread basket - although that should have come with the meal and not as an extra $8 charge."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We visit the DC area every summer and Range is on our "must" list every year. The food is terrific and the service is amazing. We love ordering lots of dishes and sharing. The desserts are divine!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food is delicious, fresh and well prepared. The staff is attentive. I've dined at Range multiple times and they're consistently good. Make a reservation , you'll be glad you went. There's also some good fresh made chocolates and cookies tucked into the back corner that you can purchase and box up to take with you for a later treat."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We enjoyed our recent dinner at Range. The food was prepared and presented very well. The wait staff was very attentive and engaging. The timing of the starters, the entres and the desserts was matched with the pace of our meal. The sommalier met our challenging requests with a nice selection of moderately priced wines. The the restaurant's theme 'a twist on familiar standard fair' with more trendy ingredients and preparation created some interesting menu selections. We decided to dine at Range early Sunday evening, there were many available tables and the service was great. Weekly dining at Range is beyond our budget, but it's on our list for special occassions."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Expect to wait at least 30 minutes for your table, even if you have a reservation. There were four groups of us at that bar waiting 30 min for our reservation. And we were small reservations: 2-4 pp each."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Third time dining here and what a disappointment. We were celebrating a birthday. Upon arrival I mentioned this to the hostess who seemed puzzled as to why I was telling her this. The restaurant was out of 2 of the menu items and 3 of the beers which was disappointing. The hangar steak was overcooked (medium rather than the requested medium rare). To top it all off the waiters came and sang happy birthday for a table next to us but were apparently not aware that we were also celebrating a birthday - for this category of restaurant those are just too many hiccups. When I flagged this to the waitress she came back with a box of chocolates, but even a great waitress can't make up for an overall poor experience. I will not be returning."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I've been to Range 3 times over the past year, and every time I hope it will be a great meal. Every time, I am disappointed. Each time I have been to range, there has been some type of problem. It's varied from wrong orders, long wait times for food, or incompetent wait staff. On one occasion it was very obvious that one or our orders was forgotten. I inquired with our waiter, and he ended up bringing out the missing dish about ~10 minutes later. What was strange was the waiter brought us out a complimentary salad....of his choice. Overall the food is pretty good. It's not worth the $ (paying for location) and not good enough to make up for the short comings of the rest of the restaurant. You are better off at Founding Farmers."

  • "We made reservations weeks in advance to dine at Range. To make this simple, one of the best meals I have had in years! The highlight of the 3 courses we had was the pork loin and belly! The presentation was beautiful and only outshined by the flavors of the dish. The pork belly was cooked perfectly, it was so succulent that it melted in my mouth. The bacon grits that were paired with the pork loin were delicious. Service was above average and luckily we had a table at the far end of the restaurant so we were isolated from the main dining area where the noise level was loud. Our party found the cocktails to be lacking, which was the only drawback of the entire evening."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Good food. Small portions but good quality. Pork Rinds are excellent, as was the lamb shank. Nice selection of desserts."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Range has good food, not outstanding but very solid. It has a good atmosphere - modern, clean, hip but not too hip - but the side is all glass and you look into a mall. Your view is cheesecake factory, H&M and neon flashing escalators. Having said that, I knew where I was going so this was not a shock nor a problem. The problem is that Range is priced like the food is outstanding and the location is fabulous. I love food and am happy to pay for it but this was overpriced. I must say that our waitress was FANTASTIC! She was so attentive and lovely, and very thorough in helping us navigate the menu with respect to our son's allergy. I wouldn't say no to going back but I would recommend it more if the price reflected the overall experience"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I always enjoy Range. The wine list is amazing and the sommeliers are also very knowledgable. The staff is very friendly and eager to please. You can't make a bad choice with any dish."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "It's not that the food was disappointing, it's that it was disappointing with respect to the price. I've dined at many world-class restaurants in New Orleans, New York, and Toronto. Range was definitely on par in terms of the bill, but the food didn't quite measure up. Tuna crudo was bland, the bacon marmalade everyone raves about was not unlike eating a teaspoon of salt, and the scallops were somewhat rubbery. Lamb dishes were both quite good, and were easily the best at our table. Cocktails were good, but not outstanding. I really wanted to like this place more, particularly with all of the hype both it and the chef receives. Sadly, neither seemed to deliver. Was worth the trip, all things considered, but returning is doubtful."
