We were seated by the window overlooking the inside of the mall - floor to ceiling windows. There was a very large and very distracting, constantly changing light show rising two full stories directly beyond our table. One of our group had to face away from it because it was literally making her dizzy. It really ruined our dinner. I would have to rate the ambience a 0. They need a curtain to protect the diners from this hideous and distracting backdrop. The food didn't do enough to make up for this unfortunate setting. Service was good though.

This was a very nice dinner evening out. The servers and service were all great, really, despite what other reviewers have written. Lots of varied choices, from small plates, salads, entrees etc. we especially enjoyed the bread selections, the grilled vegetables with great sauces. Many small dessert options for a small sweet bite or bites. Others have complained about the lighting; we thought it was just find. I think that its location within a shopping mall and hotel and metro stop hurts it's popularity, since it has no street presence, but if you make the effort to find the entrance, it's a great addition to the dining options in the neighborhood.

Range was at the top of my list of places to try while on a recent trip to DC and I was not disappointed. We started with the bread basket, which included samples of several different breads including biscuits, rolls and pretzel, all fantastic and with different spreads and butter to enjoy. For entrees I had the shrimp and grits, and friends ordered the scallops and leg of lamb, along with a side of brussels sprouts for the table. Everything was delicious. For dessert, we each tried different flavors of gelato and mine was out of this world watermelon, with beads of balsamic for the seeds - incredible. Definitely worth a visit if in the DC area. Our waiter, Carlos was extremely friendly and helpful in offering suggestions and providing great service, along with James.

After dining here, I really don't understand the negative reviews. Yes, it's located inside a small mall. Yes, my table overlooked a Starbucks and I could see shoppers in the H&M across the way. However, I wasn't bothered by this. (Perhaps because I knew this before I decided to visit). Anyway, I primarily judge restaurants by the quality of the food/service and this place was great on both scores.

My Caesar salad was unique because of the small egg yolks that were in it. Interesting! My pork loin was so tender I didn't need a knife. It also was very hot. (I mention this because some reviewers complained that the food was served lukewarm or cold). My husband had the charcuterie platter and a fish entree. He really liked them both. We also ordered a side of fries to share. The fries were described as being sprinkled with Parmesan, but I didn't detect any. However, they were pretty good.

I intend to dine here again and I encourage you to go!

Range is not what it used to be. The menu now has an emphasis on entrees rather than a large variety of small plates, including what used to be a selection of 4 or 5 pasta dishes, one of the chef's forte. There was only one pasta dish and it was delicious, but the lack of small plate choices really has made the experience suffer. Very disappointing as I took an out of town friend expecting my previous experiences.

Our group of four had a delightful time. The staff could not have been more helpful with their suggestions. The food was well-prepared and tasty; everyone was pleased with their order. The Brussel Sprout side that we shared got the highest raves. We had the same dessert--I forget the name but it was a rich chocolate concoction of cake, caramel sauce and ice cream--and all loved it. A great ending to a great meal. I look forward returning.

We've enjoyed dinners at Range numerous times before. However, this past Saturday we found the food to be just ok particularly in light of a $300 bill for the four of us. Granted we had cocktails, appetizers, entre and dessert, but the taste and specialness we experienced previously was missing. We won't be coming back soon.

The food was excellent; the meat was tender, seasoned perfectly, and just plain exceptional. The ambiance is so, so. I was a bit disappointed with the dessert assortment as the desserts in the restaurant in Frederick were exquisite. No complaints as the food was delicious and the service was OK.

Excellent food and service undermined by lousy ambiance
Range was a bit of a disappointment, due mostly to its environment and ambiance. It's full of hard surfaces and plain topped tables -- it didn't feel that different from Chili's and is certainly not very intimate or distinct. Located in a multi-level shopping mall, its own glass wall looks out into the not very scenic mall atrium. The reason I mention this is that it truly detracts from the dining experience. The service is attentive. The food is excellent -- my lamb was perfectly cooked and the house charcuterie sampling was tasty. Even by Washington standards, though, the menu seems mildly overpriced, and, when combined with the less than spectacular surroundings, it made the experience even less appealing.

We sat down and was greeted immediately by someone filling up water but then sat around for over 15 minutes waiting on menus... they had us order off of a select menu since we had a Gilt City voucher. Started off with the charcuterie platter and romaine salad. Char platter was standard; a terraine, pate, dry cured meats with mustard and pickled veggies. Black garlic dressing on the romaine salad fell flat, it was bland and tasteless. Best part about the salad were the creamy yolks. For entrees had the gnudi and fried chicken. Gnudi was essentially three ricotta stuffed noodle pillows surrounded by meat sauce. No thrill or frill, not the best, not the worst, just alright. The fried chicken was so bad, under-seasoned and just flat out not good. Dessert wasn't any better. We didn't finish any of our plates, left wanting a better meal. The highlight of the meal was the bread basket! Delicious rolls, pretzel bites and buttery biscuits with great pairings like pepper jelly, goat cheese spread and mustard sauce. Service wasn't bad either, restaurant was not very busy. Don't think I'll be returning, wouldn't recommend.

We have been twice before and enjoyed our experience but unfortunately this time was not good. The food was terrible, over salted, bland, and over cooked. My husband ordered a martini and the olives were tiny, might as well been served on pizza. We were very disappointed.

The food was disappointing for the price. The seafood platter had frozen seafood that even on the second try was not much better. And dessert combined excellent chocolate and salted caramel with passion fruit -- not a good combination. Service was excellent but one too many disappointments (again).

My wife loves the Voltaggio brother's food. Range did not disappoint and I like their cocktail ideas. That said, it was very pricey for what you got. The Ceasar salad was a complete disappointment while the tartar was excellent. The service was a bit off. Waitress was fine but if you make a reservation a week or so out, I would expect a better table than basically in the bar. Be aware this restaurant is basically part of a mall AND a hotel so the ambiance is not necessarily cosy. The decor was basically upscale Denny's. All in all, good food but for the price, I can do better.

Dropped in w no reservation for 2 on a weekday and had a marvelous meal. Loved it so much, that we made a reservation 2 days in advance 4 5 people. Anything you have will be delicious from pork shoulder, lamb, duck cassoulet, flounder and even pizza! Crab was a bit salty but the light spices were great! They have a terrific 🍰🍪🍫🍮cart that my niece loved

Long-planned visit was a delight--the food was nearly universally great (the only-at-Range Gnudi was itself worth the trip; the kale Caesar a plate of meh).

Service was fast, efficient, and keenly aware of when we did and didn't want attention. The sure hands behind the bar turned out two excellent cocktails. The one clinker was quickly withdrawn from both the table and the bill. We'll return soon for happy hour, where pizza and some of the really good drinks are cheap.

The environment...well, they're living with some truly bad early decisions about distribution of space and sight lines, which yield a generally unsettling aesthetic--all glassly bright sprawl, with a backdrop of the upmarket mall's gigantic, semi-translucent light panels morphing uneasily all night. The loungey area near the bar is coherent and inviting.

But the 20-some vacant bar stools lining a darkened sweep of unused open kitchen is a real buzzkill--it feels like the failing echo of an ambitious restaurateur's fall to earth. Which it probably is.

Note to Mssr. Voltaggio -- mask the vacant space with beautiful drapes or panels. You have a successful and wonderful place. Don't let it look otherwise.

Table of 6 for Closing Dinner. Three Clients. Sat down at 7:00 PM, they were unable to make the drink recommended by the waiter that two of us chose. Client ordered Scallops - None Available. Client ordered Tenderloin - None Available. Client ordered Salmon - None Available. Three strikes. Additionally, it seemed to be 15-20 minutes between waiter sightings. The dinner ended at 9:30 PM. Small plates & appetizer plates sat finished crowding the table for inordinate amounts of time.

We really like Volt restaurants, and I'd been here in e before and enjoyed it immensely.

The Charcuterie appetizer was excellent.

However, the brunch entree (Brisket Hash) we ordered was a bit of a mish-mash, with no real harmony between the potatoes, Brisket, Poblano and Sunny-up eggs, and our coffee was surprisingly muddy in appearance and flavor.

Service was informed and friendly, and it's a beautiful space. Perhaps the kitchen wasn't fully engaged as we were there at noon for a pre-matinee theatre meal.

We will go back, but our experience yesterday was not consistent with a Voltaggio venue's typical excellence.

While a bit noisy for the 3 of us, with inside view of Chevy Chase Pavillion, it nevertheless had great service. I had the Bronzino, which was broiled well, and my husband loved his lamb shank. The veggies were delicious and fresh. Our friend had the steak tartar and a wonderful salad.
A great place to dine before a movie, which we did, or if in the area.

Bit of a cluster. Showed up for Valentine's day dinner. Four courses. None took less than half an hour to show up. Waiter had to reconfirm what we ordered multiple times, had another tables dishes show up three of four courses. Drinks took as long as the dishes to show up ( four of the five drinks we ordered were wine and no, they did not show up with the dishes). Food was edible, but wildly underwhelming. Cobia Crudo was good. Suckling pig was decent. Duck was dried out under a heat lamp.

Great Food, Great Service, Great Valentine's Day Menu! The service was perfect given it was Valentine's Day Eve and the restaurant was as vibrant as I have ever seen it. There was no lull in service, food was exquisitely presented and had that exceptional Range quality and taste on an evening when the kitchen staff was working at fever pitch. The Special Valentine's Day menu had 4 categories all with delightful choices regardless of your easting or dietary desires. Wine list is superb and mixed drinks served to perfection. Thank you Range!

We have been to Range on numerous occasions since it opened and I am sorry to say that the quality of the food has steadily declined. This past visit will be our last. It is unacceptable to spend almost $200 on a meal for 3 people (including tip but only one glass wine) not having enjoyed anything but the dessert and one decent appetizer.

My second time at Range, this time for Sunday brunch during Restaurant Week. As before, the food was good -- brisket hash with eggs and a bread basket featuring donut holes, scones, a biscuit and three spreads. The advertising was a bit misleading -- Restaurant Week and even the Range online menu advertised three courses for $22 when, in fact, you get the bread basket and entree for $22 and dessert is a $5 up charge.
