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
  • "There is a no no in the food industry for waitress. I have ordered dessert and it did not come. When I asked about it she told me twice that I did not order any dessert. We kept arguing until she remembered that I did order a dessert. But whatever!"

  • "Restaurant was good but imagine my shock when I got my parking tab in as NEIGHBORHOOD at 14.75 for 2 1/2 hrs. Limits my probability of a return: 3 block walk , $15 parking, no valet, and too noisy. Michelin Star? ambience? etc. how do you spell overrated? Restaurant was stuffy and needed a drafty door opened to cool it down. No salads to speak of."

  • "Food and presentation continue to meet high expectations. Our only disappointment was that there was no chocolate desert without peanut butter."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The food was very good. The service was quite slow. We were seated in a small table near the entrance of the restaurant. We were packed. It was more a table to get drinks rather than a nice dinner. It was not a very comfortable ambience."

  • "Nectarine slaw is tangy, crispy and fresh. Range amplified seasonal fruit and vegetables!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "There were 4 of us for dinner and we all loved our appetizers and entrees. The salmon was moist and the skin perfectly crisp. Chicken liver mousse was superb. Loved the bavatte as well and the pork shoulder. Peach tart was a major disappointment but server took it off the bill when we complained about our dissatisfaction. Very happy with the meal and casual ambiance and would return."

  • "Memorable food here, always delicious. Appetizers and main courses were just lovely. I'm grateful for a real dessert menu from a superb pastry chef. Too many fine restaurants ignore this course and offer some variation on creme brûlée."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Range was all we expected -- creative combinations (cucumber mango slaw), perfectly prepared & great service. Loved the roasted strawberry dessert, especially. Reserve wine list had some good values."

  • "The appetizer of halibut had two microscopic shreds of halibut in a tasteless watery liquid. My date had the beef entree that tasted like nothing more than mouth fils of salt after 5 glasses of water he asked for something else of which they brought out chicken. My entree of coffee rubbed pork also tastes of nothing but salt. During the course of the evening of you set your fork down for a moment one of the staff was trying to wisk away your plate even though clearly you were still eating. They rushed you the entire time. Poorly trained staff, cooks that shouldn't be allowed to prepare food for even the homeless people if you like any of the above chart erotica of a resturant then go to range otherwise steer clear very clear."

  • "We arrived and were promptly seated at a comfortable table. Noise level was low, cocktails were interesting and tasty, appetizer (seaweed quail) was delicious. The desserts were also scrumptious. (Goat cheese tart and peach tart) The entrees however both the halibut and the steak were so salty it was hard to find the other flavors. I would go again for drinks and snacks or dessert."

  • "Server was outstanding and atmosphere was interesting and intriguing cocktail selection. However, food was over spiced, especially with salt."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Minimalist decor, smooth ambience, perfect lighting. Cozy spot that values quality over quantity, from the short menu, small capacity and attentive and still low-maintenance staff. The food is incredible. Wanted to try every cocktail on the menu and got close. Chicken liver mousse..."

  • "Outstanding. Service great. Staff knowledgeable and truly interested in making your dining experience wonderful. Vibrant scene and we will be back!"

  • "Had dinner w/ our two 20 something kids. Their food was great. Husband & I love fava beans so ordered the fava bean fritters, which were just so-so... like high priced falafel balls. We just chalked it up to ordering the wrong thing. We will return because everything else was very much to our liking. Fabulous chicken, great roast. The appetizer pasta w/ fresh pesto was amazing. Wonderful cocktails. Very comfortable and pleasing ambiance. Friendly, attentive service."

  • "From the time we were greeted by the hostess we felt like there was a confidence that we were about to be pleased. They greeted us with genuine interest, warmth and a smile. The waitress and servers carried that feeling through the meal. The quail appetizer and pork shoulder were fantastic. Cocktails were interesting and refreshing. We will be back."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The restaurant is nice but the food was very salty--This was true for three entrees and one of the desserts."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Range has a lovely, chic, contemporary vibe. The food is excellent as was the service. This was my first meal at Range and it will not be my last. I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Good, but not spectacular. Service was absentminded. We had to ask for our drinks and for bread twice before either arrived. The server unapologetically spilled part of my husband's drink. Cucumber nectarine slaw was ok. Mostly cabbage, it was a salty, far less creative dish than I had hoped for. Same for the bean salad my husband had. The entrees were solid, but not better than what I make at home. The pork shoulder was tasty, but fatty. The accompanying creamed hominy was mush and the collards tasted old and overcooked. I look to restaurant meals to bring out the best in their ingredients. This meal, although rich, highlighted the mundane. Neither my husband nor I remember his entree. The strawberry dessert wasn't worth the calories."

  • "Range is one of my favorite places in the Mission. It has a great cocktail menu and a menu that changes with the seasons. I have never once been disappointed with anything I've ordered here."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We had an adequate dinner at $120/person. The service was wonderful, the vibe very pleasant but the meal was just so-so and the wine list was uninspired."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "When Range first opened it was by far my favorite place. Amazing food with a relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. Sadly, the last couple of visits, the food hasn't been nearly as good. It's still fine, but not the level it was a while back. This last visit, everything was very oversalted. I like salt, but the leak soup (for example) tasted like flavored salt water. They just need a little more care in their food, and they can get back to where they used to be. Right now, I can't recommend them."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Really nice scene. A great place to show our Williamsburg Brooklyn dopplegangers the Mission vibe as we did that night. Starters were excellent and well-conceived. However...my main, a confit duck leg was dry and the 'granola' topping for the farro bed on which the confit sat did not work (i.e., maybe it really was granola). Otherwise, recommended for a great little dinner."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Loved the innovative cocktails and delicious, seasonal menu. Service was precise and helpful. I will be back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This place has been recommended to us. Indeed we had a great diner. Everything was delicious and very well presented. The cocktails are original and add a nice touch to a summer diner. I highly recommend "Range" for any occasion. If you want to have quick dishes with drinks, you can seat at the vibrant bar."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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
  • "Would I recommend Range to a friend? Well, sort of, yes. I'm hoping the entrees were just a QC issue, and perhaps we were there on a bad night. We really wanted to LOVE this place, we really did. Great ambience, great service…..a fun neighborhood place to be, for sure. Our Trout Appetizer was fabulous, and we were excited for what was to follow. Sadly, Salt and luke warm food, at best. We had the salmon & the steak. Wouldn't order either again. Fit for foodies? Maybe, on a good night."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."

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

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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 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"
