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've been to Range a few times now. The food is amazing. The service is excellent. Very nice bar in front with creative tasty concoctions. I love this place :-)

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
