My daughter, a UVA graduate, and I have been going to Bang for many years. Yes, Bang has evolved, but it is a great tribute to Bang that the consistency of great cocktails, and both well prepared and presented food, has endured. I fear giving...More

If you don’t like noisy, “close quarters” restaurants this one is not for you. We were fine with the vibe but wouldn’t recommend this place to people over 30. While the food tasted good, nothing was outstanding or very memorable. Both cocktails we tried were...More

Had planned on eating at brewpub, but place very crowded and very noisy. Even changed tables to try find a quieter table, no luck, so left. Fellow guests at BnB recommended Bang across the street. Eclectic place serving tapas. Interesting, but service a bit slow....More

Funky little restaurant across from our awesome B and B- 200 South Street Inn. Small place, seating is weird, bar is tiny. You order small plates like a sushi joint. Everything we had was great. Lettuce wraps, drunken noodles and Thai meatballs. Would go back...More

Wonderful flavors with each “small plate”. This is where you go in Charlottesville for a very casual, non white tablecloth meal sharing venue. Drink specialties were enjoyed and variety of menu selections satisfied all 4 of us. Prices were very reasonable after all small plates...More

I went to dinner with a group from an executive leadership program. It was Restaurant Week which we took advantage of, selecting three entrees for $25. I had BBQ tacos, Rockfish and Korean beef. This was my first experience with Asian fusion and I played...More

Bang is my favorite Charlottesville restaurant. Great, varied "Asian tapas" menu. Efficient service, great drink selection. My favorite dessert is "Chocolate Three Ways".

We had dinner at Bang! with my three sons (16, 20, 22), my brother and his daughters (12, 15) and my parents (late 70's). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the cozy atmosphere of the seating upstairs. Our waitstaff was helpful and attentive without being...More

Thanks for the review. We’ve been working hard on the menu this past year and appreciate the feedback. Our chef, Travis Burgess, is a rising star.

The decor, music and overall eclectic feel of this place should help put you in a fun mood for sharing small plates around the table of your dining partners. This is exactly what we did, and enjoyed the ambiance and exceptional service. The food was...More

As the expression goes, Bang is "mutton dressed as lamb." There's a lot of unrealized potential with Bang. I like the two houses joined into one and turned into a restaurant, but it needs to be done better. If Bang wasn't in a college town,...More
