The food and service were excellent

The pace was slow.

I have no idea if it was intentional or not.

We enjoyed ourselves.

Overall experiences is good. Staffs are nice too. Food is tasty. A bit of expensive though, guess we are just paying for the Michelin recommendation then.

Great service, food was lovely. Had a bit of a mix up when booking but once we arrived it was such a lovely night. The full vegan menu was also a wonderful surprise! The staff and food are great! Definitely a must try!

Never been so rushed. I brought two business partners from Spain here becuase I heard good things. As soon as we sat down the waiter demanded we order immediately as there were larger groups coming in (that he would prefer to look after I assume), he then proceeded to say he already knew what we wanted and basically picked what my partners would have as he reached for the menus.

We had a 3 course meal in 47 minutes. A strange experience for my Spanish friends as they are used to sitting over and enjoying a meal.

The food was okay, cauliflower soup - salty. Slow cooked Beef mostly gelatine and over done. The mash was watery and the sides we cheep frozen chips with a small plate of broccoli between the three of us.

The desert was actually pretty good it felt like they were standing over us waiting to snatch the plate from us.

Final bill close to 300€, I can't begin to think what we would get for that price in my colleagues home tome of Valencia. I was embarrassed after bringing them there.

Never wrote a review before but thought people should know about this place.

Great location.

We were provided with bottled water and not offered a jug. This is a pet hate. Otherwise service was excellent.

It was freezing cold and despite numerous requests to heat the room the somewhat supercilious waitress ignored all our requests. She was most unfriendly. Furthermore we were seated next to a very boisterous table of semi drunks who didn’t seem to care about their noise level. No, never again.

Really good food and friendly, helpful staff. We sat downstairs and thought the room was great. There was a nice amount of time between courses to chill and chat. Would go back 👍

We were extremely happy with the food and the and the value that was excellent. The staff however were not so good we were put upstairs at a table at the door the draft was terrible and all members of our party were cold. On three separate occasions staff dropped crockery and the noise was terrible. From aroud 7,15 the staff started to move tables to prepare for a party coming in later on it was very unsettling and we were made feel like we should hurry up in fact our waitress brought the bill without being asked at 7.40pm, when our booking was made for 6.15 to 8.15. This service was most unsatisfactory but as i said at the start the food was excellent. Laura Dvis

I was very impressed. Hadn't heard much about the place so wasn't too excited going but I really enjoyed it. The starter, mains and dessert were all delicious, full of flavour and portion size was just right. I will definitely go back, very soon.

Exceptional meal delivered by an incredible staff. Personally the venison was immense, arguably the best I have tried in Dublin. The ambiance was wonderful, not too noisy that we couldn't have a conversation buf not too quiet that we felt uncomfortable. Absolutely wonderful time there, will be making it a regular spot from now on and again the staff were absolutely incredible. Very welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. Excellent restaurant all round.

It was a lovely evening. Great food and very attentive and professional service.
Only negative is that we all thought €40 for a fillet steak with small accompaniment was a bit pricey. But it was an excellent steak

One of the best meals (especially for the price) we have had. Every dish was superb. The Black Forest desert was unbelievable! If we lived in Dublin it would be a regular spot for us. Do not miss this spectacular restaurant

Some of the ratings would be higher (noise/ambiance) except we had quite a noisy table beside the serving area and there was a large raucous party downstairs.

Other than that, the usual high quality of food and service and I have to say for €40, the autumn menu (starter/main/desert/glass of wine) has to be one of the best value meals of this quality you can have right now in Dublin.

Would return.

Loved everything about our evening except the first 30 minutes! We were catching up with visitors that we hadn’t seen in years, and were interrupted four times to put in our food order. It was actually a bit bizarre, as the waiter seemed to come back every 2-3 minutes until eventually we were forced to stopped talking for a few minutes to look at the menu while he waited.

Other than that, the food and drinks were gorgeous and ambiance was wonderful. Will definitely return (but this time might have to decide on food before we get there!)

We had friends visiting from Australia and our dinner in Bang was their last night in Ireland. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was busy. The service and food was just excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. Our booking was for 6.30 and we were still at our table at 9.30 enjoying after dinner drinks and wonderful conversation. There was absolutely no pressure to vacate the table. Can't recommend Bang highly enough.

BANG was highly recommended by a friend, and it did not disappoint! From the minute we walked in the door, all the way through dessert we were pleased with the friendly, unobtrusive service, the fresh and inspired food – (each plate, a work of art, very tasty art ), the wine pairing, the artwork on the walls, the music selection. It was out of this world.

Considering we are in Dublin and the prices are generally pretty high, the quality of the food you get compare what you pay is good. It was the third time I was going to BANG and I always had good food and great service. It is my favorite restaurant in Dublin if I don't go out with the kids. You can't bring kids to this restaurant even if it is probably allowed.

Of two meals one was satisfactory, one was deplorable (Rib Eye steak). Drinks were well overpriced. Service was good and a price adjustment was made for the steak.

Not worth a visit again.

The place is nice and the personnel very kind.
The food is nothing exceptional though, just average and the service is a bit too slow.
A place to try but definitely not to come back
