Went for a celebration. was not disappointed- well deserving of their michelin star. Great all around- the drinks are definitely a highlight, as was the pork three ways. the souffle was also really good. service was friendly and helpful. Great place for a decently priced gourmet meal with friendly waitstaff in a cool but unprententious environment

This place seems to get mixed reviews but we thought it was excellent and definately one of the better SF restaurants. The menu is well thought out and most of us loved our choices - the pork ribs starter was excellent as was the prime rib entree. Deserts were excellent especially the chocolate tart. They have an extensive and interesting... More

The chef here takes a point, counter-point approach to his dishes with contrasting flavors like sweet and spicy, or bitter and sweet punctuating your dishes. We enjoyed baked brined chicken with skin so crispy it snapped when we forked it; rare lamb seasoned with Mediterranean spices; tender short ribs; dense corn pudding; and egg noodle pasta with stewed meat.

"I REALLY love this food!" my wife said as she finished her entree. She very rarely says anything that enthusiastic and very rarely completely finishes a dish. It was 9 PM on a Saturday night and Range was filled with the buzz that successful restaurants seem able to generate. The space is small and unobtrusive from the street. A very... More

The food here is very good. We ordered the pork, trout, roast chicken and steak dishes. Each one was delicious. The pork dish was really dark and smoky flavored - sort of a sweet flavor to it in a good way. The roast chicken was perfectly cooked and served with nice vegetables. The steak was a bit undercooked when it... More

We ate dinner Range in mid-December, 2013. I had made a reservation, but somehow it was canceled (although I didn't do it). Fortunately we were still able to get in, but I wonder how that happened and why I didn't receive any notification. Anyway, the food is wonderful. My wife had the steak and I had the pork roast and... More

If the food hadn't been so tasty this rating would have been a poor. First to even make reservations for an early Sunday dinner you have to leave a credit card with a $10 cancellation policy per diner. The front door hostess is pleasant, but she is the only one. I understand this is SF and being a "hipster" is... More

Underwhelmed. Dried lump of roast chicken with no sauce - a Sunday roast in a British pub would have been far more tasty and cheaper! Dessert choice equally disappointing. Overrated and expensive.

I appreciate that the reservation was increased at the last moment, but everything was a lot of trouble for the manageress. Suffers from over reputation I think. Starters were awful, cold poached eggs on cold leeks and cold melted cheese is not something I want to repeat. When asked if it was supposed to be cold, they said no, and... More
