Range Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed in the restaurant. I had been there several years ago when it first opened and the food was great--this time is was poor. Limited menu (not what shows on the website) and not a single vegetarian main entree (or even chicken). We ordered a bread basket as an appetizer and it took 45 minutes to come and then half was slightly burnt and the others doughy and undercooked. Slow service and only 6 tables were fully occupied. Food wasn't very hot when served and overpriced. Won't return nor recommend this place ever again.
Heard great things about this restaurant so was very disappointed with the experience. We had multiple items on the menu, ranging from several apps to main courses and sides. The food was just ok. Unfortunately, I would not go back again.
Staying at the hotel across the way, but when I am here I always try to eat at the Range. Saturday night was no exception. Great beet salad followed be a wonderful well spiced lamb pasta dish. Delicious and the portions were great. Finished off with a salty Carmel icecream. Perfect.
I have been to 3 Volataggio restaurants (including Range previously). This was pitiful-a menu with only half of what is shown online, a clueless waiter, cold, poorly seasoned food and a end where they suggested I go to Cheesecake Factory to get my parking validated. Brian, please, please pay attention to your restaurants!!
Overall our experience was so so -- the food was pretty good, but the service was SO slow and the staff seemed really disorganized; we had to ask for refills of drinks several times before anyone would actually tell us that in fact they were out of what we were asking for. Again, it wasn't bad, in fact the food was pretty good, but I definitely would not go back here. Was also really hard to find, being that its in the actual mall.
Very comfortable seating arrangement; attentive waiter; high level cooking; interesting and tasty cocktails. We called in advance to change the table from 4 to 5 to accommodate a surprise visitor, but the hostess did not have that in her book so we had to wait for table to be re-set. Love the fried chicken!
I was definitely disappointed with our visit. We ordered the charcuterie board, being avid charcuterie eaters, and was very disappointed with the quality and taste of the meats. Additionally, our entrees were barely warm, even though the restaurant was mostly empty. I had the scallops, which were only seared on one side, and the meal also came with a risotto which was probably the best part of the meal. Overall, I feel that the food was not worth the money we paid for it, and would not recommend to a friend. Maybe it was an off night, but I expect better from a restaurant of this caliber.
Had always wanted to try a Bryan Voltaggio restaurant, and just haven't made it to Frederick yet. This was a very pleasant second, with an inventive menu. Perhaps it was early in the day on Sunday, but the cavernous space inside a shopping mall felt a little empty for brunch and lacking in decor charm. That said, the meal was excellent, from the Mimosas to a decadent breadbasket to eggs Benedict, lamb hash, and pillowy gnudi. I would definitely come back, and probably during an evening to experience a little more of the restaurant's flair and personality.
Food was good but service was terribly lacking. Made a reservation on Open Table. Stood at the front for well over 5 minutes before ever being acknowledged. It was not busy either. We ordered a bottle of wine, and they brought the wrong bottle. Even after asking if it was a Spatlese they said yes, even though the bottle said "DRY." When we inquired again they caught it and brought the correct bottle...no apology. Then we ordered an appetizer, cornbread, and each our main dishes. The appetizer was tasty although given it's name had flambé in it we thought it would be served differently but tasty just the same. Then came our mains-we both had the lamb bolegnese which was tasty also, but then they forgot our cornbread. When we inquired when our mains came, they said they would look into it. By the time they returned we had finished our main dishes and all they could say was that it takes longer since it's made on the spot....clearly they hadn't put the order in but again no apology. We finished w/ bon bon desserts which was eh, ok. Either way pleasant meal all the same but honestly really expect more from your staff esp being a Brian Voltaggio establishment. Really disappointed.
The shrimp cocktail was excellent. However, the scallops were tiny and the veggies cauliflower that came with them as a substitute for the risotto was overly salty! The restaurant had central air which was freezing almost ruining the meal. You needed a blanket. I waited at the bar for 15 minutes and even though I caught the attention of the bartender and mentioned I would like to order a drink I was pretty much ignored until finally we were seated. Terrible service at the bar!
Meh. Used to be able to count on consistently excellent food. Now much of it is just strange. A place that prides itself on the quality of the ingredients doesn't have to mess with them. Also cocktails should not be pre-mixed so you can't modify them; ok for a chain restaurant, not here.
Very low attendance at the Range. Menu at lunch on weekend was very limited. My friends eggs Benedict was obviously under the heat lamp too long and the sauce was curdled. The kitchen was nice enough to remake the dish, and the fresh dish was good. On the positive note their biscuits are spectacular. Service was very attentive, given there were only a couple of other tables occupied.
Had an excellent meal at brunch during restaurant week. The bread basket was delicious. The cocktails were well-crafted, tasty, and good value. I was particularly impressed with the wait staff. Our server, Patrick, was available but not hovering and unfailingly accommodating and cheerful. The only negative moment was discovering a piece of moldy toast on our cheese board. We were comped for the cheese and apologies were offered so no harm done - just a bit surprising given the quality of the rest of the meal. We look forward to coming back for dinner.
We went to Range last evening, despite reviews of spotty service and food quality. It was Restaurant Week in DC, so we decided to give it a try. Our first reaction to the setting was underwhelming. On entering, the dining room was less than half full and we were seated at a table with a great view of an H&M clothing store and other retail stores. We ordered drinks (after one of the guests ordered, our server rushed off without waiting for my order,) and then two of us ordered the pate and two of us ordered the fried green tomatoes; for the main course, two ordered papperdelle, one the salmon and one the gnudi. While the food was well prepared, the portions were tiny: the pate was a small, thin slice that was no larger than two postage stamps, and it came with no bread. When asked about bread to eat the pate, a gentleman in a suit appeared with a menu and pointed to several bread options at extra cost. When asked why the pate came without bread, he had a slice of greasy toast delivered for each plate. The fried tomatoes were good, and were shared with the "pate eaters." The main courses were then served, and again, the portions were again very small: a three to four ounce piece of fish and a very small bowl of papperdelle and gnudi. Restaurant Week is supposed to be an opportunity for chefs to showcase their restaurants, and many open their complete menus to guests. This was not the case at Range, and was very disappointing. The consensus is that we will not be back.
I have been going to Range since it opened 5+ years ago and this is the first time that I was really disappointed in the service. I am not sure if they were having an off night but I hope that this is not the new normal. The sommelier had little to no personality and was unfriendly at best. Service was really spotty. We asked for regular ketchup for my son's hamburger and it took 10 minutes despite asking 3 different servers. Our waitress was very appropriate and gracious and apologized for serving issues but after the 3rd apology one has to conclude that there is a procedural issue with the restaurant and that the server was trying her best. The food was very good, but I am not sure that it was sooo good that it justifies the price point. I really hope that Range can get it together because it has been a solidly welcome addition to the area and I would hate to see that it had its day.
Excellent food--we both finally went for the fried chicken which was SO SO good!! Perfectly cooked and delicious--and leftovers with the large portion size as a bonus. House-made sodas are great, too. Great wine list. Chelsea was outstanding--thanks for making the evening so memorable.
Restaurant week is opportunity to shine and grow the following - not for this restaurant - our appetizers ranged from boring to poorly executed - out of three main courses only one plate was properly envisioned and executed - desserts were just ok and this is not a compliment - service was reasonably acceptable - overall this dinner qualifies for the worst restaurant dinner ever - master chefs should be stripped of their honors like military personnel when dishonorably discharged
Had a great time at brunch. Food was delicious, but my doughnuts were cold. Gnudi with bolognese dee-lish, and would love this dish on a wintry day. Our server, Michelle (?) was fabulous and friendly...very helpful with making decisions. Wish they were serving shrimp and grits that day, though. Will have to go back for that!
We are from out of town and had a chance to celebrate an anniversary at Volt a few years ago and happened to be in town again during our anniversary, so decided to check out Range (it was easier to access without a car than Volt). Quiet on a Tuesday night, but the food was beautiful, delicious, wine pairings were spot on, and the service was very attentive and a delight to interact with. I would say this is a more casual spot than Volt was, but the price reflects that as well. Excellent addition to Bryan Voltaggio's restaurant group.
