Great drinks, good tapas

Enjoyed the food and drink very much. The drinks were particularly good and the tapas style menu had many appealing choices. The service was uneven - very attentive at times but less so at other times. We would definitely go back as the service problems may have been the result of the big crowd or... read more

Enjoyed the food and drink very much. The drinks were particularly good and the tapas style menu had many appealing choices. The service was uneven - very attentive at times but less so at other times. We would definitely go back as the service problems may have been the result of the big crowd or understaffing that night.

Great tapas across the street from the South Street Inn. Nice outdoor area for eating and best math is in the city.

really great food! small dishes, but great for sharing. My friend and I got 6 dishes to share and it was the perfect amount. Totally would recommend. My friend is vegan and they had plenty of options for her, and I enjoyed her vegan food too! Would highly recommend, and the atmosphere is very nice.

Finally made it here after 6 years. Arrived early (5:40) and got a booth. Service was great the entire evening, and I'm not sure an empty plate or unfilled water glass stayed on the table for longer than a minute. Had heard the martinis were very good and they did not disappoint. Had the "filthy" vodka martini and a "Banghattan"... More

The service and food were excellent, and the ambiance in the outdoor terrace was great, but for the boisterous ladies at the table next door who were sauced on martinis.

Visited Bang on a Sunday with a couple of friends from school and it was overall a good visit. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating and both areas provide a great atmosphere. There are two menus, one with drinks and with food. The drink menu has a variety of cocktails, although the cocktails themselves are not heroes. On... More

Yes, I was with a large group. The service was as good as it could be in that situation, and the cocktails were really good. I was expecting the food to be better, though. The menu sounded inventive and interesting, and I had three plates, the best being the tuna and mango sashimi spoons. The pork tacos with wasabi slaw... More

We went here to enjoy a casual anniversary night out. The martinis are fab and the tapas is delicious. Wish we lived close enough to go more often. The martinis are a little pricey but that's their specialty so you have to have one, two or three...

Once a favorite, recently lacking in service, but tonight.....an all time low. We arrived at 5:25 p.m. expecting to get an early table (they say they don't take reservations for groups fewer than 6 people) on Valentine's Day. We arrived at the same time as 3 other couples and were met at the door by someone who brusquely informed us... More
