We visited Range on a Monday night. Excellent service with a smile. Appetizers consisted of a vey nice beet salad, with a glass of Cremant sparkling wine. Although they were not serving cod, the ahi was excellent. The wine choices are good and priced well. Since we mostly ordered fish, we decided to get a bottle of Loire Cremant and... More

of course the food is great and inventive from appetizer through dessert; the cocktails festive and unique; the ambience lively and fun. But what really separates Range from other great San Francisco restaurants is the friendly attentive service that starts at the front and continues through the meal. not one server or busboy or bartender or hostess wore anything but...

Went here on recommendation and to see how a Michelin starred SF restaurant compares to the UK. Excellent range of flavours. My aubergine (eggplant) soup starter was delicious, my wife's apple and spinach salad was also very good, though she felt the cheese let it down slightly. Main courses (halibut and squash) both excellent, with a well balanced combination of... More

The food was great--interesting combinations well prepared and quite beautiful to look at. But the decibel level was astonishing, as we and everyone else around us shouted to be heard over each other. So come to eat well, but if you actually want an intimate conversation, go elsewhere.

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.
