We were seated next to the bar, which was very dusty and there wasn’t alot of space to sit or move comfortably. We were a group of four and 2 of us ordered a steak medium rare, the stake came well done. Now this is something that can happen and really didn’t upset us at all. But the way the mistake was handled was an absolute no go. They took only the stakes back, which meant two of us were eating and finished long befor we even got our stake. It took them about 30 min to bring us the new stakes. In the mean time they brought us other dishes that we didn’t want and Prosecco even though 2 of us didn’t drink any alkohol. When the stakes finally came we both only ate half of it because we were now full since the others shared their meal with us. When the server saw that, he seemed a bit upset and when he brought us the check and explained that he didn’t charge for the stakes and for the Prosecco (which btw we didn’t even drink) he was rather unpolite and acted as if it was our fault. Now I want to say mistakes happen and that really wasn’t the issue, the only problem was how poorly they handled the situation. Also I want to point out that I had a stake the next day in a pup and not only was it perfectly made, the quality was also way better. So honestly I’m really wondering why they have a star, or maybe they just got lazy after the got the star.

We arrived and we immediately given the option where to sit upstairs or downstairs. It was explained that downstairs was kore vibrant at this time so this is where we choose.

The starter was indeed lovely I had the croquette and for main I had the Lamb rump. Absolutely fabulous tasting dishes.

The waitress was very friendly and always topped up our drinks without asking.

I would dine here again and recommend it.

Bad, Bad Bad. Dreadful service from the start. I dont need to be told five times before I get a menu that you need the table back in two hours. Waitress was unfriendly and had to ask everytime for service. Food is average and bad value for the price. If you want to charge €150 for two people including one glass of wine and a bottle of sparkling water you need to provide a better experience than this !!

I go to Bang a lot but was a bit disappointed this time. Their grilled broccoli was more about the goat cheese mousse than the broccoli and their garden salad was far more bland than I remember. I'm hoping I caught it on a bad night.

Seated at 17:15 food did not arrive until 17:55, the food itself was OK, steak was cooked as ordered but overall it was just OK, I felt it was overpriced for what we received, there is far better places to eat in Dublin, probably would not return.

We went to BANG restaurant on Saturday evening for a pre theatre meal and wee shocked to hear staff planning to sell glasses of wine to customers which was not the wine they had ordered and would pay for! A very memorable and appalling experience. One that we won't forget.

Whilst the the decor was nice, the ambience was awkward and felt like a wake at a funeral. The one speaker funnelling music into the room sounded more like an annoying teenager on the back of a bus with no headphones. Our Waitress was not overly familiar with the menu and was not able to offer recommendations. She was also unfamiliar with the offer menu we were dining on. My partner and I are not picky eaters, at all, but the food we were served left much to be desired. The paired cocktail choices on offer are advised against and don’t arrive too hungry as there is quite a wait between courses. Very disappointed considering the good things we have heard of Bang.

Disappointed with service, menu choices and value for money. We hadn't been in a while and were looking forward, but wouldn't go back. Main courses were the only enjoyable element. Staff more interested in talking to people they knew rather than being attentive. The old restaurant always had a buzz, but there was no ambience at all. Admittedly on arrival we were told there was a problem with the lighting in that they were too bright! Staff shirts/blouses were stained, didn't look professional. Very disappointed with the experience.

Arrived to a virtually empty restaurant. That in itself was not a problem, but our party of 4 were seated quite close to a rear door. The cold was blowing round our ankles and by the time the meal was over, our feet were freezing! Food was lovely. Great menu. Great service. But lads turn the heating up!

Really poor customer service. Booking was at 20:00 seated at 20:20. Not given a drinks menu, coats not taken, long wait times between courses. Food was as always very good and to be fair we were given free desserts as a token of goodwill. However it was probably the worst customer service I have experienced.

Excellent food. I ate early evening in January: very few people in the restaurant (perhaps not surprisingly). I was allocated a table in the basement and was completely alone - weird. The staff also thought that was odd but the computer had put me downstairs so that was that ... Food was excellent though the choices were very limited on the pre-theatre (before 6:30) menu
