I went to Range with a group of friends this past Saturday. We were a pretty diverse group in our tastes and ordered various appetizers and main courses. The caramelized sunchoke pasta was extremely salty and lacked the taste of any of the ingredients listed. The pan seared quail was also fairly mediocre at best. Among the main courses the... More

Dined here as was looking for a restaurant in SF with good reviews. Service was friendly and efficient. Interior was stylish but tables were closely spaced and the noise level was quite high. Menu was interesting with a variety of proteins: I had an excellent quail dish followed by a delicious bavette steak; my companion had an apple salad followed... More

Range offers a creative menu with enticing cocktail choices. My pork dish was a bit too salty, but my wife's chicken was superb. Desserts are pricey with small portions. Service was mechanically efficient.

Great food choices and all were spot on memorable and tasty. My Aviation was about perfect and was repeated. The dining room was cramped but one of few disappointments. I would gladly return.

I found Range on a local restaurant blog and glad I booked it that day for a late 10pm reservation. It's not big, but you do not feel squeezed in at your table. It's a very well priced upscale menu with variations of things you have not seen before. The drinks are delicious as well. We had the Poached Halibut,... More

Everything was great here but the food (not just mine) was salty, salty, salty. Wait staff = excellent. Decor = very comfy. Menu = enticing. Maybe they had a sub chef that night, but salt is an ingredient that a chef must use judiciously. Too little and the dish could have been better but you can make it better at... More

We made a reservation the same night, and had a pretty good meal here. The duck for main course was splendid, the deserts were awesome. We had a perfectl helpful and knowledgeable waiter. The one problem was that the dining room was noisy - we were seated next to a somewhat loud double date, and the room carries sound pretty... More

Way too expensive and noisy. Menu was interesting but not in a practical way. Best thing we had was the duck wings as appetizer. I had chicken for dinner with faro and the meat was tender and nice buy VERY salty. Blade steak was tough and served on a brown rice cake that didn't really complement the dish. Nice people.... More

Saturday night in San Francisco is tough to get a reservation at the hot spots. This place is a good option if you are wanting a nice place and don't know where to go once you've exhausted your idea list. The food is good, ambiance is nice enough, and cocktail list is interesting (but short).

The seating here can be difficult so adding a good review may prolong my future wait times but Range is one of my favorites in the Mission. And this is my neighborhood so you get to know the gems... The places that are consistent all the time and worth the wait. Also, by day the restaurant is home to Happy... More
