After a recommendation from our B&B of where to get pre dinner drinks we found our selves really enjoying Bang! We had a few of their delicious martinis. The bartenders, even though they were swamped, we're very attentive.

Low quality ingredients lack freshness & doom novel concepts. Tried previously ~1.5 yr ago and forgot why didn't return. Never again. Lettuce out of a bag, potatoes and soy from can. Freezer burnt tuna sashimi. Artificial flavors in martinis. No thanks.

Love the place. Right next to the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, this is a great location for a great little restaurant. We sat outside on the front patio, which was really nice as we could watch people walk by and see other restaurant patios as well. We ordered the spice tuna and crab roll, crispy chicken dumplings, pulled pork tacos... More

This place is not a vegetarian restaurant, but it has the best variety of vegetarian food in Charlottesville. It's also a fun place to come for drinks if you're bar hopping. My friends have a standing "girls' night out" here about once a month, especially in the warmer months when we can sit outside. Excellent variety of well balanced (tasty)... More

Quirky cool atmosphere, upstairs table with poufs to sit on. The bangarita is the best margarita I have ever had. Select a variety of tapas dishes to share with your group. Everything was delicious and service is fast and friendly. Variety of seating for intimate meal, or a group of friends.

This place has great drinks, a great atmosphere, and great food. The service can be a little slow, but certainly fast for a Friday night downtown. Would recommend for dates or nights out with friends but not ideal for business.

What can I say, the title just came to me. Perhaps the black cherry 'tini's color all other perception, but dang those are good. Yes, the food is reliably good, assuming you like an eclectic fusion of Tapas and Thai; plenty of shredded varietal cabbages with nice savory spices. If you want a huge hunk of animal protein, go elsewhere,... More

Drinks were ok. Food ok. Kind of loud as the evening progressed. Really wanted it to be great. Will try it again.

Bang tries hard, maybe too hard. Unfortunately, all that effort seems to go into the vibe and ambiance rather than the food. The tapas-style dishes are unsubstantial, and the combinations of flavors make some of the dishes unpalatable. The restaurant feels cheap, but the price tag isn't. The drinks are great, though.
