CHEVY CHASE— In other Voltaggio news, Tom Sietsema is hearing more and more complaints about the service at Range. In his weekly chat, he vents, "I so wish I wouldn't have given the restaurant three stars out of the gate. It was a three-star establishment when I experienced the restaurant early on, but the number of complaints I've received about the service since the review is hard for me to ignore, or chalk up to a restaurant having an off day."
