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

Had to wait a bit for our table to be ready and the final bill was a bit higher than anticipated but other than that was really nice with some really nice wines. Recommended.

Halibut was superb, green salad interesting and excellent, but the waiter was inattentive. So good, but could have been a better experience .

Range was one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Naturally, I took my friend there for his birthday dinner. We arrived on time for our 8.15pm reservation and were asked to wait by the bar as some tables "were just getting cleaned up." it took 45 min, a failed attempt at speaking with the manager and several exchanges with...

We were so looking forward to trying Range. Atmosphere was great, but we were disappointed with the food. The chicken mousse pate and the glazed pork ribs were excellent, however the spring vegetable salad and the pasta appetizers were very average. The entrees were not exceptional, not what you would expect from a Michelin starred establishment. Desserts were interesting but... More
