Probably the best restaurant I've ever been to - and I've been to a number of places in and around the Baltimore-DC Metro region. Range is staffed by people devoted to the spirit of Mid-Atlantic regional cuisine, and it shows: from the cheese board from all local Maryland farms (even the cheese on the salad is local!) to the seafood (not just Chesapeake oysters, but also rockfish! done RIGHT!)

Food was all spectacular: the right blend of elegant and homey to make you feel like you had an upscale but satisfying meal. The bread basket was just right for two, with melt-in-your mouth cheddar biscuits and housemade spreads, and the entrees were generously sized - no two-bite portions here! The server was polite, charming, and attentive without constant hovering.

It's a little pricey, but on par with what I'd expect for a restaurant of this quality, and you definitely get plenty of value for it - we ordered a little of everything off the menu (sides, apps, entree, dessert) and the final bill was extremely reasonable for what we got. I've paid more for less quality food at upscale chain restaurants. Will definitely be going back the next time I'm in DC!

Range was not good, not horrible, just not good. We went for brunch. The server did not know the answers to any of our questions, and after several questions, he admitted that he was there temporarily (which is fine, but I still think he should have known about the menu). Second, the food was not great. There was nothing, apart from the cheddar biscuits, that was any good. The "breakfast potatoes" were inedible, and it is truly hard to mess up potatoes. The menu did not specify that any of the brunch entrees came with any sides, so we ordered several bacon and breakfast potatoes sides. When our entrees came, they all came with breakfast potatoes! So not only were the potatoes not edible, but we now had 8 orders of them. Would have been nice to know... I don't think I will be going back to Range because there are so many other places to go where the food is good and the waiters know about the menu.

We were traveling from the West Coast and excited to eat at one of Bryan Voltaggio’s restaurants. To say we were disappointed after this experience would be an understatement. Overall the food was very good, bordering on excellent, but the service and operation of the restaurant left a lot to be desired. For example when my wife asked how was their medium rare cooked the server responded with “good”instead of describing the color of the meat cooked to that level. Another example, the server had to come back to the table several times to clarify the wine we ordered. Also they didn’t give my wife a steak knife for her steak. We also felt very rushed by the fact he asked us if we wanted to order dessert and we weren’t even finished with our main course. There was just an odd vibe to the place as though they were about to go out of business. From the hostess at the front, to the manager and our server their was a complete lack of enthusiasm that made the night very uncomfortable. I didn’t want to believe the other negative reviews but unfortunately based on my experience they appear to be accurate.

The hostess wouldn’t seat my wife because I hadn’t arrived yet (metro problems). The place was empty, so it wasn’t like there was a line to get in. Not only is that rude to make her wait, the restaurant probably lost out on an extra glass of wine too, since she probably would’ve had one while I was on my way and then another during dinner. the server was actually very nice, friendly, and attentive, so credit due. Wife’s food was great (scallops), but I ordered the steak med rare and it came out charred and almost we’ll done. Not ok for $25. I said something and they happily replaced it and were apologetic. Cheddar biscuits were awesome; oysters were good although no one could describe them to us. Ambiance is basically the standard hotel restaurant. They don’t tel you it’s a hotel restaurant on the website. For a big name like voltaggio, I expected a little bit more.

Worst experience dining out, EVER!! Will never come here again. The meal was limited to a prix fixe set menu, presumably to try to streamline service for a busy Valentine’s Day. Waited more than 1/2 hour for our waiter to come to the table, they brought the wrong courses in the wrong order multiple times, they brought the wrong main course to me and it took another 20 minutes to bring the right one, so my husband had already finished eating. The food was cold, unappealing, not tasty, and we finally left more than two hours later, before getting our dessert) when the waiter said he had not even put in our dessert orders yet ( part of the set menu). All of the couples in our section of the restaurant had the same experience and several also left without receiving their full meal. We and several others asked to see manager multiple times, but the manager did not come until we were already leaving. Extremely disappointed with our Valentine’s Day dinner.

The first course was delivered to the table next to us, the 2nd course was very delayed, the 3rd course was delivered prior to our finishing the 2nd course and the dessert was delivered at an appropriate time. The steak I ordered rare was medium. The other dishes were fine.

Tried brunch at Range because my friend lives nearby. I had been here for dunner a year ago and had a great experhence. Sunday brunch, however, is an overpriced afterthought for Range. My frittata was good, nothing amazing, the hash browns were unappetizingly blackened, and were cold, but the scones were delicious. Service was not up to quality. We were given menus but had to call the server over to explain why we got a restaurant week menu (wasn't that over 2 weeks ago?) and to ask the a la carte prices. Once we ordered, it seemed to take a long time to get a regular and a decaf coffee. Coffee and water refreshes required flagging down staff, repeatedly. There was neither salt nor pepper on the table, and that, too, required flagging down staff. Flagging down staff became such a theme that my friend and I actually started discussing it and envisioned ways in which brunch could be a much better experience at this trendy spot. I know they can do better because when I went to dinner there, the service and the food were high quality.

Nearly every aspect of service was atrocious. Stood around at host stand being ignored, then was told I was first from group to arrive and sent to bar, only to learn after standing there for 5 minutes that my family had been previously seated. Wait staff took extended period to bring water or check on us. Orders seemingly disappeared into a void and the food took forever without explanation. The food itself was fair, not worth returning for and certainly not worth the wait. The decor is lovely but the restaurant is incredibly loud and feels a bit like you are sitting in the middle of a mall food court, ad it is wide open to the mall. I have no idea why anyone would choose to eat there. And I would be ashamed to run it or own it.

Saturday night. The service was the worst I and my friends have experienced in a long time at a restaurant. First there was no server for at least 20 minutes. After we complained - they sent someone who apologized for the the delayed server - and she attempted to take our drink and appetizer order. Those were forgotten - and only after we complained again did another server come over and take our order again. The drinks showed up - but the oyster appetizer didn't - until we complained again. The manager came over - and simply said it was a saturday night - except the place was half empty. After we ordered our main course and salads - they showed up with the main course (which also took too much time) - but forgot the salads, which was supposed to come before the entrees.

The food was delicious. They gave us 20% off our tab - but it is clear this place - which was supposed to be Brian Voltaggio's grand restaurant in DC - is failing and not long for this world.

My boss and I chose Range to try as we caught up while she was in town. The restaurant is large and has many different areas and tables for many different needs of guests (date night vs business dinner). The decor was nicely designed and and modern. For a Thursday night it seemed very slow for a well known DC restaurant. Decent wine list with lots to choose from and the manager/sommelier was quick to come over and help. Service was quick but felt a little overbearing which may have been a side effect of it being slow. It was not the professional service I expected from the owner or of a restaurant that is as well know as Range. Food was presented beautifully but felt it left much to be desired. I had the bistro streak which was cold and lacked much flavor. There was supposed to be a green peppercorn sauce which was completely dried to the bottom of the plate and could not be used or tasted with the dish.

Overall an ok experience but service and food quality would make me think twice about venturing all the way to Friendship Heights for this restaurant.

Restaurant was only serving limited restaurant week menu, which was not advertised on the website - we didn’t find out until we arrived. There also appeared to be a staff shortage in the kitchen, so our food was incredibly delayed. Food was decent, but definitely not planning to return after that experience .

The food was painfully slow. The menu was changed to a pre-fixe menu, which should have allowed for quicker service. First course (salad) was about 15 minutes from ordering. Second course (flatbread) was about 50 minutes! Main course (steak) has simple sauce and starch took 40 minutes from the second course. Even dessert took 25 minutes from ordering. The server was upset and frustrated. The manager was some-what hospitable. This meal should have taken no longer than one hour from start to finish. Not the two and a half hours that we painfully had to sit through. We watch other parties around walkout. The disappointment was the food was really good

I have never being disappointed at Range during past visits. This time, however, the menu for "restaurant week" was nothing to write home about. Very average. In addition, there were practically no other options on the menu. Very disappointing experience.

I took two business associates that I was trying to impress and Voila, Range did the trick. We lucked out on an extension of restaurant week and had a 3 course meal. The yummy noises from these high powered businessmen were great. They LOVED the food. Voltaggio is such a talented and underappreciated chef that is giving DC a chance to not have to shlep to Fredrick for an amazing dining experience.
We had 3 courses that were as good as any Michelin star restaurant for $35. Incredible.
I plan to go back next week. Too good to miss.

The service was atrocious, to a point we almost left. Our server didn't know she was our server until we'd been seated for almost 30 minutes. It went downhill from there. Even after we spoke with the manager, things didn't get better. Food is great, ambiance is warm and inviting but with service like we received, we're not going back.

We came for restaurant week, after hearing rave reviews about other Voltaggio brother restaurants and being huge fans from top chef. This was a massive disappointment. The waitress greeted us by apologizing for delays as we sat down, the mixologist wasn’t in bc it was restaurant week - drink selections were seemingly limited as my husband had to reorder based on ingredients being “out”, our reservation was for 745pm on a Saturday by the way. We were only asked for drinks when we sat, then not again till dessert. We had ordered a charcuterie board to start, then weren’t asked for our other selections till 15 mins plus after we had finished that and it had been cleared. I had the fish of the day, salmon, and it was raw in the middle, then I had to wait till the server returned at desserts to inform her as she had gone missing from entrees arriving till then. She said “oh sorry” and that was it, we saw her informed a manager who shrugged and never came over to check in. Then for dessert, we had the “peanut butter bar” which was basically s’mores, and the ice cream on top could only be described as tasting like liquid smoke. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how disappointing our experience was and it ended with a stomach ache overnight due to the raw fish. Don’t waste your time or money at this restaurant.

This was by far the worst dining experience from start to finish that we can remember. After waiting twenty minutes to meet our waitress, things went from bad to worse. Each course was less appealing than the one before. A waiter snatched a drink off our table to serve to someone else. It took so long to get dessert that the server simply boxed it to go without asking our preference. Will be surprised if this place is in business in six months.

Sadly disappointed with our visit to this restaurant. A group of 3 of us came to try it out for Restaurant Week. We were seated immediately even though we were a bit early for our reservation- which was Great! Restaurant wasn't too busy when we got there, liked the set up/ambiance of the place. BUT it took about 20 minutes before we were offered water, no waiter/waitress came to greet us or explain anything to us, after we finally got our water and drink orders in, it took another 15 minutes before anyone came back to take our order. The food came out in a relatively decent amount of time, but both the appetizer (lamb crepe) and the entree (bistro steak) came out over cooked. If there was one highlight of my meal was the dessert (cookie plate). I really wanted to like this place but was sadly disappointed. Maybe next time?

This was the next to last night for restaurant week, and we tried to stick to the 3 course menu featured. The veal stuffed crepe was mostly mashed potatoes. If there was meat in it I couldn't discern it. The steak was cool and very chewy, although easier to cut once I was given a better knife (which I had to get up for). The mousse had no flavor. All in all, a disappointing meal, all the more so because the service was so slow (although the restaurant was mostly empty at least through our first course.) The wine was $14-15/glass - rather high given that the menu offered no vintage data. There was a charge for the bread food options.

Range has a strange layout, winding lengthwise around a large atrium. It is like a very long railroad flat, a corridor with food, kitchen on one side and tables along the other side, with the waiters coming to one place to get the food and then run with it to one end or the other. The food is placed on a small platform that holds 3 plates only, with an overhead heat lamp that was not turned on, which perhaps was why my steak was cool. It was opposite where I was sitting, so I could watch how it worked. The wait staff really got a workout.

Enjoyed the Restaurant week menu, which had a nice set of options, along with the cheese board sampler. The wait staff were very attentive. Somehow our OpenTable reservation wasn't finable by the hostess, which was weird, as I even got a message the next day from OpenTable about being a no-show. Happily, they were able to seat us even so. The restaurant should have more diners! The food is excellent!!

Received a confirmation call from Range on Sunday preceding Wednesday dinner reservations. First time visitors to Range from out of town, my husband and I are thinking must really be busy. Very surprised upon arrival for 6:30 dinner that restaurant was virtually empty. We were there for approximately 2 1/2 hours, and restaurant was about 25% filled at the max. Our experience is that first and foremost service was horrible; almost non-existent. Our server was an order taker and check deliverer. And very, very slow at both. Other servers brought our food, as our waiter was conspicuously missing. The restaurant appeared to be adequately staffed, so I don’t think our waiter was overly busy. The bright spot was the sommelier, who made great suggestions, and even bussed our table.
Raw oysters were the shining course. Entrees of salmon and bistro steak were good. In all fairness, it was restaurant week, and surprisingly, only the restaurant week menu was available. We were not able to order from the regular menu.
Perhaps they were having an off night, but lack of diners makes me suspect our experience was not an isolated one.

Firstly the restaurant was empty and we still had to wait for us to be seated and served .
The salad only the kale is great, we ordered a mixed bread basket and were not even informed that two of the four were sold out and unavailable.
We purposely went there because we are foodies ... well the food is good when it gets there but it runs out very very quickly. At 7 pm no more pomme frites were available !!!! The mashed and rib eye are great as well as the tagliatelle.
Cookies for desert is almost like forgetting to put on your tie when wearing a three piece suit !
The cherry on top is that one salad stayed on the pass for 12 minutes waiting for the rest and the manager is clueless . We tried to pay with open table and she said she doesn’t know what that is !!!!! Maybe you should not have this restaurant on this sight or this manager at this restaurant !
Voltaggio is a great chef and we wanted to taste his cuisine but in this setting only one phrase sums up our experience .... Such a let down !!!!
