Busy night and loud . High energy holiday celebratory atmosphere . Got lowest level on last minute reservation but top level dining room would be most quiet and intimate and less claustrophobic. Food great and Bravo on Brunello choice

Hi,

Our party enjoyed the Christmas Lunch; the food was very tasty and the service was good.

The main issue that people had was the price - the food worked out at roughly €50 per person (drink was extra).

I would definitely dine in Bang again but I would look to avail of a cheaper menu option.

Thanks again to all the staff at Bang for a great lunch.

Have a Happy Christmas

Michael

Despite a very full Saturday service, very hard to find any fault. The food was beautiful and excemotional. Each dish on a very high standard and distinctively different. Very friendly and hardworking staff. Many a bit crowded, but definitely very recommend. A big and pleasant surprise.

Dinner at Bang was delicious and the service was fantastic as well! We ordered the grilled octopus appetizer to share and I had the venison and both were really delicious and the presentation was great. Dessert was also very tasty - we shared the chocolate bar and tiramisu, both amazing! They have a variety of cocktails and wines - I really loved The Mint One gin drink. I would definitely recommend and will come back the next time I’m in Dublin!!

The food and wine were outstanding and could not be faulted. We were told on arrival that we would get a complementary glass of proscecco because it was a special occasion but this did not arrive. This was fine with me, I don't like proscecco but my wife does.
We were seated downstairs from the ground floor which was lovely and quiet and relaxing but this meant it was a very long and complicated walk (with many stairs) to the toilet facilities. I know this is a minor point but I thought I would mention it.
This was still an exceptional dining experience and one we will repeat. We ate at 5.30pm so we had the early bird menu which was very good value for money.

Lovely night for a birthday meal for my boyfriend. Didn’t expect a birthday surprise - refreshingly good customer service.

Only feed-back is that the menu was slightly different to what was on the website - specific dishes chosen for that day.

The place looks great on paper/Open Table, however fairly sub standard service. They forgot our order nd left it sitting for an hour before I finally tracked down a waiter. Rushed the food, ad s result the food was completely under cooked and flavorless. Except for the venison.that was quit nice. No apology for the oversight and also added a voluntary donation to local charity. All-in-all very disappointing. Worst restaurant of our week long stay.

Don't be put off by the name. They accommodated 8 on short notice for a spontaneous upscale-but-not-ridiculous business dinner. Delicious food and drinks, perfect atmosphere. A young couple at a table nearby seemed to be enjoying their romantic night out, so apparently BANG suits those purposes as well.

This was our second time eating at Bang after a college graduation and we weren't disappointed. The food and the service were excellent and the cost was reasonable. By chance we were in time for the pre-theatre menu so most of us opted for that.

It was a busy evening, but the staff was working hard, however, my wifes sole was very tasteless and the texture not great and she therefor left a lot of it.
Instead of taking an interest the waiter just took the food away.

Firstly let me say the staff were great so none of the negatives below should be held against them...
The restaurant itself is split into two smaller dining areas and it is luck of the draw who you are beside. We were unlucky enough to be beside 6 incredibly drunk and noisy tourists who ruined the atmosphere for everybody else (including our waiter...)
The food is fine, not huge options but good quality though I'm not sure it merits a rosette.
The pricing is pretty full on, the Celtic phoenix is back and you can get to €100/head without being too extravagant and for that kind of money you should be getting a really special experience not a qualified success...

I had been to Bang before with friends but some time since I had been there. My husband and I had dinner which was really nice. His vension was very rare so asked for it to be done more and they also took my dinner as well which meant we were both eating together which was nice

We were recommended this restaurant by friends, and thought we would try it. The place was clean, cute and cozy. It's a multi level building, with great atmosphere and wonderful food. All serving stuff were knowledgeable and professional. Food tasted great. It is a bit expensive, but we had a great time there. The sign for the restaurant is not very big, and you have to look down to find it.
