Great food and attentive service in a casual setting. Word of mouth recommendation lead us here. Eclectic, quirky seating area which is relaxing. Servers were upbeat and attentive. Food was well executed - chicken was moist, steaks were hot, salads- tasty and inventive. A hidden treasure you'll want to share with others and revisit when in the area.

We visited this very busy restaurant in what seemed like a very quiet town. There was a bit of a wait for a table, but the food was excellent and the staff were lovely too. The menu sourced local produce but there was a broad and unique spectrum to choose from. Definitely worth a visit if you're staying the night... More

Had dinner 2 nights in a row at the range to celebrate different friends birthdays. Both dinners were good but they could stand to be a little more gracious with giving a birthday dessert. Almost all restaurants do something for birthdays. When we asked about birthday desserts the first night (65th) we were told that what they give is small... More

True Central Coast feeling with absolutely delicious food and great service! So lovely to have the option for outdoor seating to enjoy incredible Santa Margarita evenings. Seasonal specials and opportunity to taste local products and wines all add to making this one of our favorites.This is our go to place whenever we have guests in town.

Our party of five ordered several items and everyone was more than happy with their choices. Shared the Natural Mans salad with my husband...........yummy! Shared the pork chop with my mother. So good! All of the favors were so nice! Trust the chefs' choices and you won't be disappointed! Will definitely return!

Actually Visited in May 2013 as a group with a Local from Paso Robles for dinner. Atmosphere was very relaxed, we ate undercover outdoors. Service & Meals were fantastic, all had starters and mains. I had Lamb, best ever, don't tell my wife, everything was fantastic. Deserts and coffee to finish. If I ever get back that way I will... More

Ate dinner at this restaurant on 2/5. What a great surprise as this place looks different than the great quality service and food you will receive. Wine, food and service were top notch. I would not hesitate to return. An excellent experience. I was with friends and was very satisfied. Highly recommended. We had a diverse selection of the menu.... More

Great food and awesome atmosphere. I have experienced the Range twice and both times it has been wonderful. It is a hidden treasure in Santa Margarita that even many locals still don't know about. Enjoy!

Visiting a friend who lives in SLO and she took me here. Wow! Living In the Midwest I know what good meat is, and the lamb chops I had were to die for! Service was great and we brought our own bottle of wine that they happily corked for us. What a great experience!

This place doesn't advertise, only does dinner, doesn't accept cards and will not reserve tables, but it has won the local newspaper competition for best local restaurant for the last 3 years! We just had to try it and were not disappointed. We turned up on the dot of 5pm when it opens and found that two other couples were... More
