On a busy convention weekend, I was unable to secure a reservation at the usual touristy places. This was characterized online as a "quiet and consistent" place suitable for grown ups. So after a round of hotel cocktails, we found ourselves eyeing the cocktail menu! It was magnetic, inventive and varied, appealing to the different leanings in our party. The... More

Range has been around a long time, at least by San Francisco standards! We have been dining there since they first opened. We had not been in a while (so many new restaurants to try in our lovely city!) so we went back on Saturday evening. Well, it was just as good as we remembered! Consistency is important in a...

We made a reservations for Saturday but I wasn't feeling well and they happily changed it to Sunday during an open time slot. We arrived Sunday at 6:15pm, the front area was still pretty empty and we were seated near the front window. We ordered 2 of their specialty cocktails and both were fantastic! We had the steamed manila clams... More

I recently visited friends in San Francisco and they took me to one of their favorite restaurants, Range. The restaurant is rather small and the tables are tightly packed together so it does not give you the feeling of being intimate with your friends/family when you can hear the entire conversation of the people at the next table (one foot...

I haven't had a standout meal like this in sf for a while & damn this was good! The chicken entree with walnuts & dates & panzanella was so delicious as was the mocktail that was prepared for me. The trout tasted divine also! All in all a great night out & far more memorable than my first visit 4... More

made a reservation a few weeks ago for a Saturday night. it definitely is booked far in advance so plan accordingly. it's crowded and lively. the front bar and tables were jumping. the dining room is pretty small and cramped. and a bit loud, but in a way that's okay because it actually affords some privacy. you sit really close...

My friend, who is a local, made the reservation. Perhaps his build-up beforehand set me up for disappointment - the food and service were very good, but just very good - not great. The seasonal ingredients were well-prepared and fresh, and the wine list suited the food offerings. Overall, it was fine, but would not make my top 10 SF... More

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...

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
