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.

Absolutely beautiful dinner. All plates left clean!!! Chicken was moist and fabulous as were the chips. Everything was perfect. 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

Wine ordered but starters arrived before drinks
Wine was not properly chilled when it arrived
Found a Plastic piece in my main course
Waitress managed as best she could and gave a free round of drinks but didn’t feel seamless for the service or price

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.

Food really tasty and well presented. Some exciting ingredients that you don’t find in every restaurant. Main complaint was price of wine with bottles starting at €37 . The service was good and I would have been happy to leave a generous tip until I saw a 12% service charge automatically added to our bill for 2 people.

Very annoyed - service charge sting in the tail!!!

Excellent food and very enjoyable atmosphere, but was very disappointed when I checked my receipt a few days later.

When the bill came to the table, I asked if I could add a gratuity onto my card payment, which I then did. It's only now that I see that a 12.5% service charge had already been automatically put onto the bill of our party of only four diners.

Several complaints:
1. There is no mention on the Dinner Menu page of the restaurant's website that there would be an automatic service charge.
2. Automatic service charges are common for parties of six or more, but we were only four diners.
3. When I asked if I could add a gratuity to the bill, I should have been told that there was already a service charge included. This is what a server did in another restaurant where we dined recently, and so I didn't get hit for a double payment.

Could not fault the food, drinks or staff.
Staff went the extra mile in all senses and could not compliment the service from the young girl that looked after us enough.

It has been a great dining experience at BANG restaurant with gorgeous foodand very professional and friendly staff.
The starters were tasty and the portions very satisfying, the fillet steak was cooked to perfection and the sides were very well combined.
The staff took very good care of us we were asked if we need a blanket in case it was too cold and the service was top notch.
We have been very pleased with the overall quality and definitely a restaurant where we'll come back.

I did enjoy my meal here a few weeks ago. The staff were nice. I do think the menu could be a little more extensive and the prices did seem a tad extravagant (even by Dublin standards).
Think it's an acquired taste.
