The food and service are excellent. We had the pink oysters for an appetizer - wonderful. Chopped salad, followed by Malbec with filets (medium rare) and truffle fries for main course and cotton candy for desert. All delicious!. Service also wonderful. Only complaint is location at a hotel. Otherwise, fantastic. Will return. Quite convenient for activities downtown.
Service (Russell) was superb. Food was great, but a meal here is not an inexpensive option. Perfect for special occasions and Majestic Theater events. Request upstairs, much quieter.
We have dined at Range several times and the food has always been very good. The salads, sides and entries are flavorful.
In an area with too many tourist traps, Jason Dady and team have built a strong steakhouse with seafood for those looking for an elevated experience. The oysters and snapper were particular highlights for us. The wine list leans heavily toward comfortable new world selections, while cocktails are faithful to the classics.
First steak was over cooked. Second steak came out with an extremely cold center. Neither were my idea of medium rare. This was my second time at Range. The first was incredible. Everyone has a bad day. Hopefully next time will be back up to par!
Our waitress was incredible. Very nice and knowledgeable. Didn’t get her name.
It was my first time to Range and I thought everything was excellent. The table-side Caesar salad was a neat twist on salad and tasted really good. I had the ribeye and Brussels sprouts and they were excellent. Good flavor and cooked perfectly. Overall, I was very impressed and will be back.
As good as it gets.
Been to Range a few times for business lunches. Food is consistently good to very good. Service is always solid. The only thing I'd improve is more diversity in the lunch menu....but everything on it is good. My latest lunch is no exception.
Lunch salads are bit pricey after adding anything besides chicken, but everyone says they're good.
Range has an eclectic menu, knowledgable food staff, and excellent servers. Each dish is imaginative and delicious and the cotton candy served with the bill is a surprising and edible treat. Gluten-free options paleo-friendly available too!
Food was the standout, with service being way below standards for the price point. Having spent 250 for 2 of us, the service was severely neglected. While Pablo was a nice guy, the overall lack of management training and attention to detail was very evident.
Our server did not know the answers to some of the questions we asked about the food- service was adequate. Meal was pricey for the value.
We went for lunch, all food was presented well and was not auctioned off at the table!!! I love that. We had salads, cold sandwiches, the Burger, and the Bacon sandwich. My friends had never been here for a meal. They loved it, especially the surprise at the end. We ate it all, till our tongues turned BLUE!! You must come for lunch.
I went to Range for New Year's Eve this year and really enjoyed it, so I tried the Sunday brunch. The service was excellent, but the food was poor. They definitely have outsmarted themselves. It kinda chapped my hide that I paid $55/plate for Coco Puffs on glazed doughnuts, burnt brussel sprouts, banana pudding with miniature marshmallows, and overcooked fried chicken. Also, the blueberry muffins tasted like they came out of a vending machine.
The fruit and champagne were excellent, though. Jim's isn't the best, but it does taste better and 1/5 the price.... although no champagne...
Most of our food was pretty good, but the server seemed overwhelmed by a 6-top next to us.
We ordered the wagyu shabu shabu. They brought steak tartare instead. We pointed it out to the food runner and the manager came and apologized and told us we could have the steak on the house. For what it's worth, it was _really_ good.
The shabu shabu came next, and that was also great.
The potato chowder was runnier than I'd expect, which kept the flavor from sticking in your mouth quite right, but it was pleasant.
We ordered for main course (wife & I): dry aged ribeye (Pittsburgh style), the filet (medium rare), crispy brussels sprouts, and cauliflower gratin.
* Ribeye was good, though thinner than I expected (granted, it was also wider than I expected, and I didn't finish it; it was huge). Nice crust, at the bleu cheese end of the dry-aged spectrum.
* Wife said the filet was good
* The brussels sprouts were crispy, cooked through, and had a good vinegar-tasting punch to them
* The cauliflower gratin base was a little runny, but it was tasty
Dessert was the peanut butter chocolate thing (the name escapes me), but it was too rich for me.
The cotton candy was a lot of fun.
The manager(s) were on the ball wrt service, but the waiter himself was having a rough evening. We ended up spending $300 (2 glasses of wine and 2 cocktails), but I probably wouldn't go back.
The food is delicious. However, even with numerous empty tables, they crammed their few guests right next to each other and right next to the patio door, so there were flies and wind rushing in with each trip to serve those on the patio. So, request a private spot away from the patio door. If weather permits, the patio is a nice spot.
Amazing server, David.
We were checked on by almost every single member of the Range team. Wonderful experience!
We went to Range before a show at the Majestic. The experience would have been improved had we NOT been along the window side of the seating (left area as you walk in). The setting sun was blinding to my husband and there there people (guests of the hotel, waitstaff and patio diners) going in and out an adjacent door that was very distracting, letting in hot air and the flies. The FLIES landing on my food flying around my head. The food itself was very tasty. Loved the sprouts an the side of cauliflower with Gouda cheese sauce. The meatballs were served lukewarm and were’nt remarkable. The cost was just way too pricey with the a la carte pricing. Service was very attentive. Most people around us were sharing the entree which might be the trick to managing the cost. The bacon encrusted pork chop is fantastic and is actually 2 chops so that’s is a good split. My $29 half of a Cornish game hen is not big enough to share and really shockingly small for the price. The cotton candy was a fun complimentary treat presented with the bill. Best tip: $7 valet parking at the Embassy Suites (adjacent hotel) with validated ticket. Easy pick up after the show.
Four guests -- all 4 dinners were mediocre. Service was incredibly bad ---- never had a server who demonstrated such a blatant "I don't give a damn" attitude. Will never go back.
Brunch buffet was delicious and the champagne flowed generously. Excellent service all around.
Great Mother’s Day brunch. My wife and daughter both enjoyed the food!
The food and experience were tremendous! We will definitely return and will bring more friends next time
Great service! Food was incredible. Definitely recommend the appetizer with beef tartare - SO GOOD!
The food was outstanding. Our group shared the quail, pork loin and filet. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. Love this place!
Range is in the Embassy Suites hotel on the River Walk in downtown SA. It definitely focuses on huge hunks of prime beef. I generally figure I can source and cook a steak as well as most places so we generally look for other items on a menu to try. We definitely hit a home run with the Bacon-Crusted Bone-in Loin Chop.
We started with their signature table side Caesar Salad and while good, it was disappointing. Instead of emulsifying the egg yolks and oil, they used mayonnaise (along with an egg yolk and olive oil) which is a short cut I never take at home. I guess I can see it as an expedient method for a table side presentation but disappointing nonetheless.
As mentioned, the Loin Chop was excellent with a thick coating of bacon covering a perfectly cooked chop. We split the order thinking that we would be carving up a single chop but instead found it comes with two chops - I can't imagine one person could ever get through it by themselves.
We had the Crispy Brussel Sprouts and Jalapeno Grits as family style slides. Both were very good although again huge portions for just two people. I wish that they had smaller portions (for less cost) so that we could have tried a third.
Range is a very solid choice for pre/post theater or other event downtown SA.
The food was amazing and the service was outstanding! I'd highly recommend Range to anyone!!!
This restaurant was a terrific find!! Happened to be staying at the Embassy Hotel and decided to reserve a table for an evening date. David was so awesome as a waiter and the food was equally amazing! So much to try that we decided to come back for Sunday brunch. It was equally if not her than dinner, only because it had wonderful fried chicken and champagne on the brunch menu!! Definitely, definitely will be back!!
Service was wonderful! Loved the ambiance. Food was good across the board. Good selection of oysters, which were great. The tableside Caesar is excellent and a must have. Both mine and my husbands steaks were very flavorful but both were significantly overdone, which seems like an inexcusable mistake in a high end steakhouse. Sides of asparagus and mushrooms were good, not great. Not a huge white wine selection. Overall, I enjoyed the experience very much until the bill came. Probably could have gotten as good of a steak (properly cooked) much cheaper elsewhere. Significantly overpriced.
Very excited about trying this restaurant.
The highs, the Shabu-Shabu was great and fun. The Range salad was amazing. The Red Snapper my wife had was amazing. The blueberry muffin with pink peppercorn butter, fantastic. The Hendricks Gin & Tonics were addicting, they were so good. The cotton candy was a fun ending.
The ok. The cauliflower au’graten was good. The fillet I had was good, but not Bohanan level. Or Peggy’s on the Green level.
Needs Work: The Brussels sprouts, granted this was a stretch goal, but they were not impressive.
Serving size, the folks that can afford to eat at this restaurant don’t typically have the appetite of a teenager. Offer smaller portions. Desert, need some lighter options, Lavender Laced cream brûlée from The Lodge example.
Staff: Good. When our waitress was around she was good, but we went for long periods of time without seeing her.
We will definitely try it again. I know Chef Dady is a perfectionist and will dial things in.
It was very expensive for not coming with sides. Staff was helpful.
Went to try this new place out before a bday night out and show at Majestic. Enjoyable atmosphere and waitstaff. Food was very delectable and filling. Would highly recommend.
Everything was fabulous! Service was top notch and our food was delicious. Within walking distance of the Majestic, a perfect place to eat (and park!) before a show and/or have a drink at the bar afterwards.
Excellent food! Incredible variety! Loved the waiter!
Five employees, hanging out, limited actual service. Medium rare steak served raw in interior, had to be sent back. Could understand it if restaurant was busy, but I was only customer there.
Family vacation in San Antonio
Our food was incredible! Our server made some recommendations that really set up a great dining experience. Range is a new go-to destination when we’re in San Antonio!
The food and service was great. My girlfriend split the ribeye which was huge. The potato bisque and the range salad was delicious. Really liked the complimentary cotton candy. Great time and will be back.
My wife and I went on a Saturday night for a night out. Our server was great throughout our 2 hour stay. We started off with a few appetizers. Their pepper meatball dish was great as well as their table side prepared Caesar salad. The mushroom bisque had a great flavor and texture as well. My wife had the snapper and enjoyed it. I had the lobster enchiladas which I would order again. Our sides were brussell sprouts and cheese grits. We were too full for desert but enjoyed some of the cotton candy at the end of our mean.
Food was good but the steak was so thick (had the filet) and not cut evenly so it was cooked inconsistently. Edges were overcooked and the center was pretty rare. Table side martini was fun. Bar was great. The Korean ribs were really good and the oysters were delicious. Definitely a special occasion place.
Waited for everything; to get greeted after being seated, for drinks and then for our food which came out lukewarm at best. Huge fan of other Chef Dady restaurants (Tre/2 Bros) but this one is way off the mark. With as many choices for great steaks in SA, I'd go elsewhere. Go to the Palm or Bohanan's, they're both up the street and head and shoulders above this place.
Table side Ceasar for two is a must! One of my favorites. If you get the ceasar it’s a lot so I recommend you go lighter on the sides when you order your entree. There are so many good sides but we couldn’t eat even eat half of one after eating the salad and steak. Really good food can’t wait to go back!
