A word from Range
Nestled in the heart of the Mission District, Range is the creation of husband and wife team, Phil and Cameron West. Since the summer of 2005 Range has welcomed diners into a warm, inviting space furnished with wood floors, zinc table tops, leather banquettes and art deco elements.

As the seasons change, the food and cocktail programs follow suit. Chef Phil West’s compact menu offers locally grown and sustainably cultivated ingredients with succinct flavors layered into sophisticated fare. Pastry Chef Michelle Polzine’s thoughtfully hand-crafted desserts provide an innovative yet classic finish to the meal. Specialty cocktails reflect the produce market’s bounty and every day a new cocktail is created by our talented bartending staff. Range’s entire front room and full bar are set aside for diners without reservations to have anything from a quick drink or dessert to a fully coursed meal. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I came here with my partner to celebrate his birthday. It was a special occasion and we haven't been disappointed. The food was very skilfully made. These type of restaurants tend to overdo (foam, sauces, emulsions etc.), while Range was quite simple yet very tasty. I would definitely recommend."

  • "Delicious food and generous portions. Chicken was awesome and down to perfection. Our server was great; attentive, upbeat, but not intrusive."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The food was too salty. The dessert not inspired, in fact the Rye plum galette that I ordered was burnt!. All in all a bit disappointing ....way overprice."

  • "We had 6 for dinner which is a pretty large group for this space, but it was excellent. The food here is amazing -- not big portions but just as it should be. Great beer selections and really tasty entrees, "foodie" yet not pretentious. It's a little noisy here but that's what we wanted."

  • "Excellent meal as always. A very consistent, very enjoyable dining experience."

  • "We really enjoyed Range. Their dishes were creative yet approachable. They use ingredients in unusual and surprising ways, like a savory granola made with rye, cherries and hazelnuts as a garnish for duck breast. Our dessert was a peach cobbler that was refreshingly not-sweet. We loved it, but it’s a pretty daring thing to serve to people used to cloying American desserts. This was one of the better meals we’ve had this year, and I’m eager to return."

  • "We had wonderful cocktails and food. The service was outstanding."

  • "We had heard about Range, but hadn't managed to get a reservation. However, we needed an early dinner before a show at the Marsh, so succeeded in seating a party of five at 6PM. The decor is understated but attractive, the service friendly but in obtrusive. Great cocktail menu. All the food was PERFECT! I had an escarole soup, and my husband had a wonder cabbage, cucumber, nectarine, pumpkin seed, and vinaigrette slaw that was out of this world. All the main dishes slammed it - steak, salmon, and halibut. Divine chocolate dessert. Noise level rose at the end of the meal, but conversation was still doable. Could use a tad more acoustical dampening. We like to talk."

  • "Service unfortunately was slow at the beginning, and they should have brought bread to the table right away. I had to ask them twice to bring it. Food is solid, but was kind of expecting it to be better. My favorite thing was the goat cheesecake, yum! The halibut entree was a little disappointing. The chicken liver mousse appetizer was good."

  • "Love the ambiance at Range: low key but hip without the overdone minimalism. Service was attentive without being overbearing. But the food was a little hit or miss. The escarole soup was flavorful, but the nectarines and pistachios tasted odd in contrast. Maybe corn or something a little less sugary? The baked gnocchi as actually a giant rectangle; not the small, bite-size pieces I was expecting. the vegetables on top were nice, but heads up that the broth is really, really strong and salty. It overpowered most everything on the plate. Would have liked a second vegetarian entree option, but at least there was one!"

  • "We've been looking for an inventive place like this in the neighborhood, great food!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had a great time at Range. Good food and friendly service. It is a small dining room/tables close together but we still could hold a conversation. We had the duck liver mousse and trout pate to start, both excellent, followed by halibut and steak. Would definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was outstanding but service was sloppy. It was a full hour before our appetizer arrived. It was so noisy that it was painful. Will not return"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We returned to Range after having a monumentally disappointing meal there a few months ago. They regained all of that lost ground and then some. The service, which had been dismal, was perfect. The food reminded me of why San Francisco is such a great city for food. Sand dabs -- which have been absent from most menus of late, were back -- and perfect. The other dishes (nectarine/cucumber slaw; roast chicken; blade steak) were all just wonderful. Really wonderful for any occasion. thank you range. L. Fischer Berkeley"

  • "Our food was great! The service was perfect. My in-laws are always a bit challenging as they are always want things difference then how they are on the menu. The waiter was completely accommodating. It was a completely enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Good eats despite being pretty salty. Small children were in the restaurant which didn't seem appropriate. Sand dab wasn't deboned. Awesome Spinach soup."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I had never been to Range but wanted to take my friend to a special place to celebrate his birthday and I wanted it to be in the Valencia Corridor for the energy. This was a great experience. The place looked great, very well designed and well-laid out. The serve was exceptional and our server couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The food and wine were outstanding and it was one of the best evenings out in SF either of us had had in a while. And in SF, that's saying something."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "After years and years, this is still on of San Francisco's best restaurants. The food and service are consistently excellent, and the room is warm and inviting."

  • "Side dishes were all way too salty. Main dishes were fine. Noise level in main dining room was crazy loud. Service was fine."

  • "Warm and cozy, prompt service, delicious gnocchi. Glad to have chosen Range as our dinner stop for the evening."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Food was good but arrived to our table of three independently, and unevenly warm. Service was spotty at best. The wine, which we selected as the waiter appeared unfamiliar with the selections, was good. However, given the price we paid for dinner, the apparent disarray of the staff, the unclean bathroom, unyielding noise level and surfeit of establishments in the area, I would not recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Range has definitely lost it's touch- the food was mediocre (granola on duck... bizarre), temperature mild and not cooked to order. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Went for an expectedly nice dinner with out of town friends. My friends said the Loin and salmon were good. But the 2 of us that had the Duck, were very dissapointed. The description listed nuts as a garnish, but actually it was almost 1/3 of the meal. Argh... The waiter said it would be lean meat, and it was actually extremely fatty. Also, at the end we were overcharged. They corrected the bill right away, but it just left an additionally bad taste. With all the amazing restaurants in SF I won't be back for a long time; and don't think I would miss out if I never go back. "

  • "We had a wonderful dinner here celebrating my partner's 30th bday. I ordered the Bee's Knees (delicious) and my partner enjoyed the Barbarella. For an appetizer we shared the spring vegetable salad w/ lolla rosa lettuces, fresh goat cheese, & champagne vinaigrette. This was a light & refreshing salad- perfect way to start a meal. For dinner I ordered the oregon king salmon (wild!) w/ cilantro rice noodles, squid, pickled vegetables, aioli & chili lime vinaigrette and my partner ordered the strip loin roast w/ hasselback potatoes, lacinato kale, pecorino & rye breadcrumbs. We both finished our dinners so I'd say that's a sign of how tasty they were. We don't live in San Fran but it's on our list to return to during our next visit!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Whats to say- the menu online looks delicious and the dishes were excellent and tasty. great ambience for date night or a few friends. we did nto get to try the cocktails as we brought own wine. We maybe should have ordered a few more appetizers than one per person. My only complaint is they could have provided a bit more bread. otherwise great spot to try."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Range. The food was fresh and had surprising combinations of flavors that worked really well. A wonderful example of top-notch Californian / San Franciscan cuisine."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Range was the perfect choice for dinner with a friend whom I hadn't seen in far too long. We chose to sit in the middle section instead of the fuller back section so we could talk and be boisterous. Our server was delightful and her wine recommendations were great. Starting with margaritas (excellent tequila list) worked well. The slaw and the trout were perfect starters. We both had the steak because I knew it would be great. It's nice to know that Range is still the ultimate destination for a great dinner with flawless service and excellent food. Oh and don't miss the goat cheesecake - it's beyond good."

  • "The food was good but not, by any means, spectacular. Could be on a downslide."

  • "This was a belated anniversary dinner with my wife that did not disappoint. We went there early so that the restaurant would be less noisy and give us a chance to talk. The service was extremely professional yet still friendly and the waiter made great recommendations for both of us. I like the pared down menu with only a few choices, but still something in every category. The two fish dishes that we had were outstanding and not too large. The cucumber salad was refreshing and crisp. The escarole soup - a bright green bowl with some goat cheese hidden inside - was light and pleasant. A memorable evening closed with a luscious panna cotta."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We had the salmon and duck main courses: outstanding. The only downside: we couldn't hear each other, way to noisy. Would only go back if it were an earlier time when only half the tables are filled. Great bar as well."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "On a recent Monday 2 of us dined at Range. Our table was ready when we arrived, although the hostess was luke warm when she noticed our less-than-Valencia-hip clothing. The dining room is cozy if not a bit cramped. We had the trout starter, which was lovely. I had the halibut with spring peas: genius and flawless cooking, perfect textures and flavors. However, my portion was so small that I left the restaurant feeling hungry. My date had the loin roast and he loved it. The wine list is great. We chose a Barbera from Piedmont, and it was lovely. Our server, like the hostess, was just shy of warm, and perhaps a bit flustered. Overall, it was a nice experience, but given the cramped dining and cool-ish service I probably will not return."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Range has always been an excellent restaurant. But a change in chef and dessert chef has it going downhill some. Parking in the area has gotten very bad the last year of so to the point that they recommend you don't drive yourself there. It needs to attend more to food quality."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Everybody can hear everybody's conversation. The tables are very close to each other. Given the ceiling is pretty low, there's no privacy in talking. We inevitably heard a lot of awkward conversations of first-date couples. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I hope. I wasn't impressed this visit. The service was good, the food was off-not bad, just not notable."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I had never been but we will be back. The food was just delicious and the bar scene was vibrant! Service was great. Decor was so so but the energy made up for it."

  • "this is our favorite san francisco restaurant but we hadn't been for awhile. back in place in the top 100 restaurants in san francisco and even better than before. GO!"

  • "This restaurants Michelin rating I believe is primarily for the exquisite deserts. The flavored for the carrot cake were absolutely amazing. The barley soup was solid and the duck with granola was truly fascinating."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Outstanding food and great service. The ambience could be better with more attention to details."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I felt for the quality of the food and portion size that Range was overpriced. Expect to pay about 100 $ per person."

  • "The menu continues to evolve and surprise. Bright, innovative takes on classics. Creative and comforting. A favorite. "
