Range, a new modern American chophouse from acclaimed San Antonio chef and restaurateur Jason Dady, located along Downtown San Antonio’s historic Riverwalk. A distinctly Texan concept, Range will pay tribute to the Lone Star State’s rich heritage and ranching culture with world-class angus beef from 44 Farms in Cameron, TX, fresh seafood delivered daily from the Gulf Coast, and wild game sourced from deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Chef Dady’s chophouse menu will offer a wide selection of Texan and Midwestern beef, complemented by profoundly Texan Snacks, Small Bites, Sides, and Sweets such as Beef Tartare “Parisa” with cheddar, poblano, and jalapeño; "Loaded" Potato Chowder with bacon, cheddar and chives; and Marble Potato Confit with bacon cream. Selections from the field and sea include Pan Roasted Organic Chicken Confit; Breaded Gulf Red Snapper with lemon beurre blanc; and Bacon-Crusted Bone-In Pork Chop.

Great restaurant for a celebration. A little pricy, but they allow you to share the steak. 8 in our party at Range. We ordered 4 steaks and sides! The chef served us on separate plates with our split orders (awesome customer service) drank 4 bottles of wine...the best Ceasar Salad table entertain ever......but the bowl of Cotton Candy at the end of our meal was so much fun! So much fun watching grown ups and elderly eating cotton candy! Chef Dady is brilliant!

Other Jason Dady restaurants usually deliver. Since his days at Lodge and Bin555 Jason and his team have done a wonderful job. Range does not deliver. Whoever is managing this for Jason is not doing the Dady brand a service. For a fairly pricey steakhouse the food was mediocre to poor. The service lackluster and the space reminds you of the hotel you are in. I had hoped Jason could put his own mark on this space but IMO he and his team have really missed the mark. Might be OK for easily impressed tourists but it’s a real disappointment to locals.

The food is great, the atmosphere was not. It still feels like a hotel lobby restaurant...at really high prices. We felt awkward dressed up for a nice dinner. The server was constantly trying to upsell us and criticized our gulf oyster order. He pressured us into getting more expensive ones. Very strange vibe but awesome food.

A solo diner can’t begin to enjoy the menu but I was so hungry I tried to make it work, knowing I would pay for food I had no chance of finishing. And so many missteps in one evening had me asking for my check paying only for what I ate - not what I continued to wait on. It was terrible.

Pass the salt please...oh, no!!! Everything was so salty we could hardly finish dinner. Wine was ok, but, heck, it was on sale for Tuesday by about 50% so it Damn well should have been. Tenderloin order medium well...we’ll I won’t say any more, MEDIUM. They touted that the steaks are from some ranch in Nebraska, but if they are so good, WHY THE SALT! VERY disappointing and unless I hear some rave review that won’t keep me away...I’m done.

I felt the food was way too salty. I ordered the Korean ribs which were way overpriced for what you get and the presentation was less than impressive. I tried my friend’s snapper which was good. I also ordered the Brussel Sprouts which were pretty tasty, just too salty for my liking.
The server kept trying to sell us a 100$ bottle of red wine without really knowing why it would be so special. We opted for a glass of Simi Cabernet instead.
Spending 100$ + tip for two should equal a nice dinner out, however we were less than satisfied. I doubt we’ll go back.

Love trying San Antonio’S cuisine. With that said, steak was dried out, quail was was under cooked and service was rushed. Of all the amazing places to enjoy delightful eats, this would not be one of my choices.

We visited for our 34th wedding anniversary. The food was great. Really enjoyed the table side Caesar salad. Finished our meal with the complimentary cotton candy which my wife really enjoyed. Afterwards they were kind enough to hold onto our doggy bag (the steak was too big to finish) while we explored the Riverwalk. Overall, fun evening.

Huge appetizer, miniscule entrée: For lunch, the two of us shared an ample burrata appetizer, which was delicious. However, the two entrees, pork( $17) and snapper ($20) were tiny, about 4 and 3 oz respectively, and dwarfed by huge plates that made them seem smaller. The brussels sprouts side were halved bs, not bs leaves as we expected - and over-salted. We sent iced tea back - tasted stale or "off" - but it showed up on our bill. The hostess attributed slow service to understaffing. All in all a $65 disappointing lunch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our food and experience at Range. Although the bar service was a little slow, the cocktails were delicious. We had heard that serving sizes were large, and that is definitely the case. We all ordered entrees and all had leftovers. Brussels Sprouts are delicious as are the truffle fries. Those who ordered steaks found that they were cooked exactly to the doneness that we ordered. We'd definitely go again, but would split entrees.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
