                                        Food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service seemed overwhelmed and we needed to remind them to bring our drinks and specific cutlery for our meal. They did apologise throughout the meal. However, we would like to give it another try as this could just have been an off night.

                                        Food was beautiful as always. Cocktails a little too acidic for me, everything else fabulous. Bit of a wait for the mains but served by a lovely lady. Will definitely be back.

                                        Fabulous food, fantastic staff, nice cocktails and wine. Worth every penny. Sat outside, one of the group was getting cold, staff provided blankets and even brought a hot water bottle for her. That is great service.

                                        We got a very small table that I originally thought was just for pre dinner drinks, located in a very unimpressive what I can only describe as the hallway. It just didn't have any ambience. The food was good and service was lovely. I should have asked for a table in a different room.

                                        Very pleasant restaurant with above average limited menu. However, smoked butter tastes almost like fish. Ask for normal Kerry butter.

Bangs never disappoints and I have recommended it often to visitors and friends. Will be back very soon as it’s food that makes you happy. Staff are also well worth a mention, service is excellent.

                                        I work in hospitality therefore I guess I’m biased as I have a certain expectation when it comes to service. Greatly saddens me when extremely friendly servers have no clue of menu or cannot make wine recommendations, Missing the point point big-time. You are overextended with outside offering. It is not fair on the staff.l, all of whom are lovely, they’ve cannot service it. Food wise the crab was over salted. Beetroot and goat cheese was good as was the pork belly. Our waiter was lovely, I don’t know her name she didn’t tell me. I want to have a food experience and I want to learn something. The food was great but the food/wine experience was lacking

                                        We were very happy with the Covid precautions that Bang had in place, as we hadn't been out often since indoor dining was approved. We had a lovely evening, positioned close to an open window. Tables nicely distanced. Food and service was very good, only negative was that wine prices were a bit on the high side, but maybe prices have gone up in the past 18 months since last we ate out! We'll definitely be returning and have no hesitation in recommending Bang.

                                        Always great food and service in Bang and it’s become our favourite Dublin haunt. Can’t say enough good things about Bang.

                                        Really lovely experience. Good service and delicious food. For those with a larger appetite, the portion sizes were a little bit small but, overall, it was a lovely meal and I would return.
