Amazing food experience. We loved the pre-theatre 2-course menu. It was satisfying and filling yet not feeling stuffed. The food was served quickly and the staff was great. We were served by Alex. They cater to food intolerances very well.

Had a fantastic evening at Bang, the service is fantastic, the food is truly wonderful, the Scallop starter and the Duck gnocchi was great but the Fillet Steak....well.... that was out of this world, the taste of the salt and the juiciness was there from the first cut to the last mouthful, I wanted to cut it into thin slices and make it last for hours that’s how beautiful it was. So if your ever in Dublin please make sure you try Bang Restaurant you will not be disappointed

Me and my girlfriend are regulars at Bang, and our experience over Valentine’s weekend was fantastic as always. We had the octopus and scallops for starters, which were amazing, and our Black Forest gateau and cheesecake desserts were delicious. Though the show stopper was hands down our main dish. We had the cote de boeuf to share and it was cooked to perfection! It was tender and bursting with flavour, and the portion was ideal for sharing. Though we each ordered side dishes, they ended up being only half eaten, as our attention was completely focused on the beef.

Adding to our experience was the attentiveness of the staff, who are always warm and welcoming. From when we first stepped into the restaurant and were met by the lady at the front desk to who lead us to our seats and was very friendly, coming to check on us throughout the meal. Alex R. was our server for the night, and he took extra care to make sure we had everything we needed. Alex has been our server before and he is always attentive and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better service, and we have to say that Alex went above and beyond to make our night special.

As regulars, we can’t recommend Bang enough. If you want a romantic meal with delicious food and wonderful service then Bang is definitely the place to go.

Best restaurant in Dublin! The staff is amazing, kind and full of passion. That you can see on your plate and taste! My reaction to our starter was WOW, no words, just a happy feeling 🤗 and that feeling continued till dessert 🙃
This place is a little next level so the price is a bit more than in the other restaurants but the food and your time there will definitely be worth it.
I would plan a Tripp to Dublin just to eat at BANG Restaurant 😅😋

After declaring a severe seafood allergy a manager brought toasted bread to the table stating "it might be cross contaminated, we use the same grill for prawns, so be careful"... erm??? Maybe not!! A waiter who only worked there for 1 week witnessed this, removed the toast and apologised!
It was rectified but it was also not a very good experience

BANG Restaurant & Bar
Responded on 3 March 2020

Hi Clare, We are very disappointed to read your review. We take allergies very seriously here and went to every effort on the night to look after your husband. The waiter who brought the bread with the foie gras mentioned that we do not make it in house, and suggested that your husband eat our own bread instead. There was no mention of cross contamination or prawns, we do not serve prawns in the restaurant. We are sorry for the miunderstanding.

Main course took 1.5 hours to arrive. When it did the steak was undercooked and the parsnips were raw. Other guests had the same experience. Wine was given free of charge and the steak was not charged for but we would hesitate to return! Very disappointed!

We all enjoyed our meal service etc. The restaurant was busy so it took time to get sorted with service food etc and as it was match day and our party was in a bit of a rush to make it to Aviva. We allowed our selvesabout 90 minutes to get through our meal so next time I think maybe another 45 minutes may be prudent. In conclusion nice restaurant

We had a delayed girls Christmas lunch at Bangs and really enjoyed the day. The food was excellent and the wine list varied and affordable. We all chose the slow cooked beef which got a unanimous thumbs up – delicious. The athmosphere in the restaurant was great that day with lots of kilted Scots having a good time. Apart from the food, the ambience, it was the excellent service from all the staff that makes Bang a restaurant we will shortly be returning to.

Ate at Bang with an old friend visiting from Holland. We were very impressed with the food and it’s presentation. The seared tuna starter was a delight and the main course of slow cooked beef was a treat. My friend had the John Dory which was cooked beautifully.
The restaurant was quiet as it was a late lunch, suited us as we had a lot to catch up on.
The only down side was the constant intrusion from staff - whatever about asking if we wanted an aperitif, two different staff members asked if we had food allergies... I imagine if we did, we’d be the ones initiating this conversation.
Following that we had several unnecessary interruptions which we both found exasperating. I’m all for good service but that also means knowing when to step in or not.

The food here is better than any Michelin star restaurant that we have dined in.
The food - the menu had a wide variety of options. The flavours are complex but complimentary. There is temptation to lick the plate if you thought no one would notice. There are suggested wine pairings for each dish which add a further dimension to the enjoyment of the food. The venison, fish and rabbit gnocchi dishes were fabulous (I don’t usually like rabbit but my partner had ordered it so I got to taste it)
Desserts were very tasty. The chocolate mousse was light but yet multi dimensional. We also had a wonderful rhubarb dish with sorbet and crumb which was equally delightful.

Environment- we were seated in the lower part of the building. Due to lower ceiling it is a little noisy but not enough to hinder a conversation. There was a lovely buzz in the restaurant.
Service- Quite efficient without feeling rushed. Staff were happy to make recommendations of dishes and seem genuinely enthusiastic about the food, wine and working in this restaurant.
We ended up staying till nearly closing time as we got chatting to staff on the different floors on our way back from the toilet.

Toilets- They are located up a lot of stairs beside the private dining room and one needs to get remember which way to go to return to their own table!! They were very clean with nice toiletries in individual toilet and wash basin cubicles for both men and women. My only quibble is that they were a little cold.

Overall this might have become our new favourite restaurant in Dublin.

The food was excellent and the service was great until the end. After my dessert, the waiter brought my check without my asking. And then while wrapping up my amaretto, a different waiter came to my table with a credit card machine. Obviously, they were waiting for me to leave. This would not have been perceived as a problem in the U.S., but this is the first time it has happened in Ireland or really anywhere in Europe. Please tell me this isn't the new normal. I work and travel a lot in Europe, and I sincerely we have not exported table turning culture from the U.S. to Europe, especially in upscale food establishments.
