    The food was not delicious. Steaks were overdone, you could barely cut through them, and the lobster Mac & cheese was inedible due to over spicing. Our server was lovely and very attentive.

    it was a special occasion, my son, wanted your nachos and we went at golfing for valentines and New Year’s as a family. And you change your menu. Please leave nachos on there - its a staple. The dining room was pretty busy with large groups, but we were talking with my cousins, so it wasn’t a big deal. The waitress kept apologizing and she was awesome. The food was great.

    It was our server's first night and other than a few minor details did very well. Cocktails good as always. Appetizer was Prime Bison bites. Tiny cubes served in an overly large bowl of Au Jus. No serving utensils. Good flavor but not a good value for price. Entrees were Mango Salmon. Cooked perfectly. Sides well done and a good compliment to the salmon. New York strip. Again well prepared but the accompanying brussels sprouts were way overcooked. Wagyu Flatiron. Cooked as requested but nowhere near as meltingly tender as expected. Side of Lobster risotto was gummy instead of creamy but again, good flavor. Personal gripe; I hate settling the bill electronically on a tablet and having to request a paper receipt. Overall, a nice evening out but it seemed like the kitchen was a little off their usually outstanding game. Still would recommend without hesitation.

    Food was amazing, seafood risotto and surf and turf special for NYE-cooked to perfection. Service was great. Table was a little chilly as we were seated in the enclosed patio area but not bad. Definitely putting this place into our rotation. So many other things on the menu we are excited to try

    Our experience at Range was great. We had a table of 4 on NYE and we all loved it. We started with the Bison Bites and they were pretty good! All 4 of us enjoyed our cocktails - no complaints. They were very tasty. Each of us had bison or beef steak. Every piece of meat was cooked perfectly to temperature and was seasoned well. The sides were great. The risotto was delicious and the asparagus cooked perfectly. A couple of us had the De Burgo sauce and that was so good as well. Great food and great atmosphere!

    We had a large group with reservation. Table was in bar and crowded. Service was fine but food hit and miss for our group. Over-priced for quality. Chicken de burgo dry and not much flavor. Steak was just okay. Pasta looked like best option.

    Birthday . My daughter wanted a great burger and the menu looked good. We were placed on the patio after making a reservation… it was a high top booth and very awkward for my 70 yr old mom. The food came out in shifts with one order forgotten altogether. None of the burgers came out built as the menu indicated… Sides were the redeeming value. Fries, Brussels sprouts and broccolini were good as were the salad dressings. Server made no effort to make it right or apologize. We did not all eat together. 6 people and meals came out 1-2 at a time . Sad to say we wouldn’t go back.

    We Previously had a mildly unpleasant experience and were politely asked to come back and give them a second chance we are so beyond glad that we did. Several people went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful family breakfast and exceeded our expectations truly. We are so impressed with the kindness and professionalism from Rebecca Cai as well as our server and the other gentleman who brought out our food which was DELICIOUS! See you next time.

    I made reservations for my husband's birthday for 6. We were seated at a high top table in the bar area. We were expecting the dining room. Prices were very high for sitting in a bar and food was average. Luckily our server was good or the entire night would have been a flop. Wouldn't go back. Not to mention, we golfed before dinner and our server was awful there too. She explained absolutely nothing about the simulator. Didn't get us clubs. We stood around waiting to start for 12 minutes after our tee time and were charged for the full amount of time. Disappointed with the entire night.

    The servers were nice but the service was extremely slow. They weren’t overly busy. No one seemed to be in a rush to get us what we had ordered. My sides were cold and my steak was chewy. It’s more on the expensive side and I think the service should be a lot better for what you pay to eat/drink there.

    Yesterday I took my husband to the Range to celebrate Father's Day. When we got there at 7:15 pm we were told the kitchen closed at 8:00 pm. We ordered drinks, and then an appetizer of the Lobster Dip. After a 25 minute wait the Lobster dip did come out and it was delicious. Then at 7:30 pm we ordered two burgers for dinner, my husband ordered the beast with just cheese and bacon with no bun, and I ordered the Range burger with bison. We both ordered our meat to be medium cooked as well. When our food came out, my husband did not have any bacon on his burger and only received Parmesan risotto instead of lobster risotto and the burger was cooked well and burnt. My burger came out with no bottom bun, well cooked, and burnt. The server and the food runner were good and did a great job with the mess they were dealt with. This was our second visit and unfortunately probably our last.

    Food was fine, but the overall value for the price was not. Buffet price for kids was higher than stated on Facebook, and we were charged for every drink - apparently there are no free refills on soft drinks? Our tab was over $40 just for Cokes! Our server never mentioned that there was a charge for refills and kept bringing them. By the time we finished eating the desserts were picked over and there was nothing left. Prime rib was over cooked and dry. The rest of the food was fine but nothing special. I don’t see us returning here.

    Must have hit them on a bad night. We had a reservation for a birthday dinner, but when we arrived were told there was only a high top at the bar available. When I explained again that we had a reservation, the hostess was incredibly rude and hastily shoved us in a dark, cramped booth straddling the kitchen door and a side exit door. There was no light around the booth and frankly it was depressing. And there were plenty of other booths available. Also, we were told our waiter “had a lot going on” and were sporadically served by three different people, none of whom seemed to be communicating with the other. Waters were empty throughout the meal and getting the check took forever. Will never return. Too bad, because some of the food was pretty good. And why ask on the reservation if there is a special occasion being celebrated when clearly it makes no difference?

    We actually didn't get to eat here, we made reservations for Mothers day but when we arrived it was very crowded and we were unable to even get to our table since my Grandma couldn't maneuver her walker through the overly crowded restaurant. They were doing brunch buffet only which was not posted on their website or Facebook page. The buffet was set up in the lobby area which meant you had to walk through everyone waiting to be seated to get to the food. I don't think the restaurant was prepared for the number of people they had, the hostess was very flustered. So, if you want to try this place I wouldn't suggest peak times.

    Had Mother's day brunch there. The food was good and I appreciated the selection. Price was in-line with other places and I didn't feel like they were cramming us in there unlike some of the places I've been. Would definitely recommend.
