Diner Reviews
  • "LOUD LOUD LOUD .... Uncomfortably close to neighboring tables/guests... Most dishes were terrific - but not all.... Pretentiously overpriced... An extremely unpleasant experience overall. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "I went to range with some friends in December and we had a great experience. The variety and the quality of food was great and exciting. I went back with my husband last week and was disappointed: the menu has been drastically reduced and although a few of my own favorites remain, it's not as enticing as I expected. I read somewhere that they had split the space for a new restaurant, but I was still expecting the Range experience I had in December. Although the food was good, it was not as adventurous as I remembered it and for me it's not worth the price now. I will not be coming back. "

  • "This was my third time there (this year). My husband and I really like Range and recall several of the dishes we've had there being the best we've ever had. That being said, there was a mistake with our order, for the second time. The pizza was a bit cool and dry. When we arrived, we felt a bit rushed to be seated before the entire party arrived. That being said, four out of five 'aint bad!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Each item we had was delicious. However, it took a long time for our orders to be taken. This was the case for each stage of the meal -- drinks, entrees, and dessert so factor in an extra 20 to 30 minutes for your outing. "

  • "I wanted to love Range because we live in the neighborhood and have heard so many great things about it. The food is good ..but the attention to detail seems to be lacking at such a high end place. The pork cheeks were cold and scallops woefully undercooked. I judge a good restaurant by how they prepare their seafood and there is a balance between raw and just right! I sent them back and they came back scallop stones..Clearly the chef didn't agree with my assessment so decided not to risk it and just cooked the heck out of them. Disappointing! Our waitress was engaging but overextended and we were behind a column so it took a long time to get anything. We tried to order more to give it more of a chance but gave up and left!"

  • "The cheddar jalapeño biscuits were excellent. The pizza has a really thin crust, very much like pizza found in New York. The scallops were flavorful. The chocolate semifreddo dessert was a bit too chilled. Service was inconsistent."

  • "It had been a year since we dined at Range and how it has changed !! It was an exciting edgy foodie fun fair. Now the menu is half the size, no small plates and much more staid. The Prix Fix was excellent for lunch .. kale caesar, Scallops and lots of dark chocolate variations. Our service was great .. one diner is vegetarian and ordered the lentil soup. When it clearly contained beef, staff brought her a substitute salad. I think we will do lunch there again, but it has lost the bloom for special dinner dining. Change is in the air and Volt has an adjacent restaurant, Aggio that we will check out soon."

  • "we had an excellent lunch experience. Their new addition to their team Chef Matthew McGhee is upgrading their already exceptional culinary offerings. We look forward to dining again at Range for dinner and exploring Aggio as well!"

  • "My friends and I came to Range to celebrate my friend's birthday and we were greeted by a very warm staff. The food was amazing, and we were enjoying everything on the menu. We had ordered a bottle of wine, which when opened, was a bit on the strong side. Glasses were poured, toasts were made, the wine was enjoyed. We decided to order another bottle (same wine), and this time I requested that the wine be decanted (perhaps I should have asked the sommelier to allow the wine to breathe instead?). His response to my request was a snooty "You do know that it isn't going to change the wine right?". My friends and I felt that this was rude, thus downgrading our rating and experience from a 5 to a 4. "

  • "highly over priced beautifully presented food - top restaurants always work the price of bread the into the meal except for here!!!! "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "All of the accolades about Range are true. The food is fantastic and the service is wonderful. The restaurant has an open and modern feel. I highly recommend it, although it is a bit pricey."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "I have been a fan of Range since it opened a couple years ago. They've changed their concept from a shareable menu to a more traditional dining menu. I certainly missed some of the shareable menu options, but still a good dining experience. Also, they have transformed a portion of the dining space by the restrooms into another restaurant called, AGGIO, specilaizing in Italian cuisine."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Range has great food! We had the skillet bread, charcuterie, brussel sprouts and bone marrow. All of these were fantastic, especially the housemade charcuterie (the pickled curry cauliflower took the blue ribbon). The drinks and wine list also impressed. The only drawback to the experience is that the restaurant is in a mall. If you can get past the mall, then this is a great place for people who love good food and drinks."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "The food is fine, but too salty. The price is too high compared to the value. That said, it's still a decent meal and a great location."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The food was great but wish they served pasta during lunch. Dinner menu is where the real cooking is."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was great. While some people in my party thought the menu was a little limited, I was happy with the variety on the menu. I was most pleased with the service. I consistently find the service in DC to be the weak compared to other major cities (NY and Chicago particularly). I will say, Range was one of my best service experiences since moving here. Three of the menu items were sold out, the waiter was good enough to go back and check a second time and get the last of one dish. The staff knew the food and no pretenses. Great ambiance and awesome design. I was a little taken back when I realized the restaurant was in a mall, but aside from catching the H&M sign out of the corner of my ear a couple times, you'd hardly notice."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Highly meat based menu. Not as much for those who are less inclined to a slab of flesh. Some interesting flavors, such as "bacon marmalade". I got pizza and it was so-so. My comments are probably not applicable to those going for the meat. Excellent service, great physical space."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Everything we ordered at Range -- from the delicately prepared tasting of lamb right down the the mac and cheese and brussels sprouts -- was delicious and beautifully presented. Although simple, the beet salad with goat cheese and basil vinaigrette was a real highlight. Our server was friendly and accommodating, and the decor and ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic (we particularly enjoyed the comfortable upholstered seating, as we lingered over dinner for more than two hours!) We did, however, find that the meal was a bit overpriced for what we received --we assume we were paying for the name. That aside, a lovely evening was had by all at Range."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Not only was it quite limited, but some of the best items, like pasta, no longer appeared on the menu. Our lunches, mostly tuna burgers, lamb burgers, and pizza were good but nothing special. The French fries were way too salty, as especially witnessed by a friend's ankles swelling up within a couple hours. The homemade sodas were okay but not worth $4.00 (and no refills). The waiter was rather aloof and seemed to disappear when we needed him (a complaint we've also had at dinner). The best menu item we had was the ice-cream sandwiches. It seems that, at least from what I've read in other reviews, the best items have been transferred to the new restaurant, Aggio. As Aggio isn't open at lunch, there isn't even a choice of restaurant."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We'd had a really good meal at Range last year. Since then the menu has been reduced, so what had been a broader selection of dishes is gone. A number of good dishes remained, including some past favorites. The menu prominently features "wood fired" steaks, at high prices. I ordered one, with the other limited entree selections not appealing, medium rare. Came out solidly medium - a light pink at best. Sent it back, but the next one was almost identical - perhaps even more cooked. Manager came over to explain the cook steaks "sous vide" first and then grill only at the end - but no explanation why they sous vide'd the steaks to medium. Third try was in fact medium rare, but a different cut and despite being "prime" was quite tough."

  • "Amazing food, lovely ambience, excellent service, very creative menu with many unusual combinations, huge variety of selection, and good prices for the quality."

  • "Cross between Tappas and Fine dining...great wine selections and terrific side dishes. Could use more non beef options."

  • "had dinner with my college room mate had a fun time at the chefs counter ham sampler was good Caesar salad was worst I've ever had. hangar steak was downright awesome chewy tasty perfectly cooked . they ran out of popular deserts we left without having desert. espresso was ok."

  • "Took my friend to Range for her birthday lunch. This was my third time at Range. It was fine. Food was decent but nothing special."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "I returned here after dining several times before they changed the menu. Unfortunately, I don't like the new dinner menu. Some of my favorite items are still there at the same price, but they are smaller, e.g. the bread basket used to be awesome. Not anymore. To get pasta now you have to go to their restaurant within a restaurant. I liked it better in its old iteration."

  • "Service was poor and pizza came out cold. Food is expensive for what it is. Beautiful space in the Pavillion."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Visited Range for a Monday lunch. It was great...I chose the prix fixe. The kale salad superb, my scallops delish and the choco semifreddo was yummy. Our server was especially knowledgeable about the ingredients as I was dining with a someone who's super allergic. Perhaps I'm a fatty and wanted more protein...the salad dish came with two scallops but it was lunchtime. I ordered the cornbread because I was still hungry...only had 1 yummy slice. My eyes are bigger than my stomach. This experience was much better than my previous experience."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Sat at bar for 15 mins with no acknowledgement from bartender. Even if busy, a quick "I'll be right with you" would be great. Dinner was fine. Food came out a bit on the slower side, but for a busy Saturday night it wasn't the end of the world. Again, the service was just so-so. Every time we needed something - another drink, etc, the waiter was really hard to find. I hate when you go to a restaurant and you can't have a conversation because you've been taken over by a game of who can spot the server first so you can order something. Overall, the food was pretty good, but service was terrible. It just seemed they were way, way too busy to be bothered. We had a very nice server when he did come to our table, it was just very minimal."

  • "We went on a Sunday evening and it was not packed. We were given table/booth. One person (me) had to sit on a crack between two sections of the bottom cushion of the booth and the two sections were uneven and very uncomfortable. Our waiter was very distracted the whole evening. Some food was excellent and other options were not good at all. I would not go back."

  • "I visited the restaurant with my wife. The service is really great and kind. The food is good visibility and nice taste. The design of the restaurant was excellent."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "My party of 4 was extremely disappointed in this restaurant. The food was extremely expensive and truly nothing special. When spending that much, you want dinner to be better than "fine." There are a whole lot of better ways to spend that kind of money."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "They put a twist on some familiar dishes so it is fun to try something new but at around $30-$35 an entree, its overpriced for the quality."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I made a reservation to Range months ago anticipating a great Italian experience; however, they have since moved all their pasta dishes to their other restaurant, Aggio. They would not let me order off the other menu or change my seating. I cannot afford to eat out often, so I was very disappointed. The restaurant was also very hot and uncomfortable and the waitress was curt and rude after I explained my predicament. I know it is my fault for not looking at the changes to the restaurant, but an exceptional place would accommodate my request for such a special occasion. The dessert was exceptional, however."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Range is a unique dining experience. They recently reduced the menu options and this makes selection process easier. Service was outstanding - Sam and the entire team did a great job. Seafood Sampler was fantastic - followed by three salads we all shared - heirloom tomato, beet and buratta was most memorable. Best main course was pork cheeks. Brussell sprouts and cauliflower were great as side vegetables. The deserts were over the top....we had white chocolate, rice krispee treats, salted caramel ice cream. Great night with friends to say the least."

  • "With reservations for my husband's birthday, we walked from our Chevy Chase home. The young hostess staff is incompetent and apparently w/o grown-up supervision. They treated us rudely - placing us in a dark corner at a shelf in the back when we asked for a quiet table away from the very noisy bar and close dining seating. We were told that the empty tables we saw nearby were not available and we would have to wait a long time to have an actual table. Perhaps we appeared to be other than young, midst the mostly 30-somethings, but we should have been treated with respect. Rather than "put up a fight" we left and found very gracious service across the street at Capitol Grille. We will not go back to Range. Many better options are near."

  • "had high hopes, and while meat was good enough, and it worked well to split the 16 oz rib eye an appetizer and three sides among three of us, the broccoli rabe and meat seemed ... greasy, or too buttery. Our favorite dish for the night was the brussel sprouts, and the biscuits with jalapeno jelly. too many other good restaurants around to want to go back to this one, but if it did return, I'd try a different cut of meat and would not get the mac and cheese of broccoli sides."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I booked a reservation at Range about 5 weeks in advance. We were seated promptly, but placed at a counter top instead of one of the many tables for two. Not only was I disappointed in the fact I was sitting side by side with my date, but we were also facing an oven that was frequented by kitchen staff. These seats should not even exist in a place that serves food in the price range that Range does. We asked to be reseated and had no luck. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and it was good, but a very small portion. I then ordered the steak and my date ordered a pizza. Both entrees were good, but did not impress me in the way I had hoped when considering the price. Cocktails were good and came quickly. Overall, I doubt we'll be back."

  • "This restaurant is so large that the ambience detracts from the dining experience. We went on a friday eve and the place was packed. The noise level was too high and does not coordinate with the culinary attempt. The menu was too limited . A restaurant must depend on repeat business but we would not try this again. Dissappointed given the Volt ."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We missed the creative touches of Chef Brian. The quality of the food was excellent. The price was expensive. We felt that we could have cooked all of the dishes as well at home. We are good cooks!"
