I've been to Bang several times over the past two years and it has never let me down. First, their Sin City martini is amazing. The small plates can be hit or miss, but the sixty second sirloin and beef soba noodles are my favorites. The tuna sashimi and mango is also tasty. I highly recommend getting there early and...

We have come to Bang every time we are in Charlottesville. Love the variety of interesting menu items and we've never had anything we haven't liked. They also had a special lower price menu the last time we were there with some wonderful specialty drinks as well as the tapas. Staff is attentive and the back garden is a relaxing... More

I have gone to this restaurant twice and left without dinner twice! BOTH times I place my order and half an hour later they bring my husband his meal and THEN let me know they are out of what I ordered. One time a couple came 15 mins after us and they told me they got the last ones! To... More

We hadn't made plans for dinner and just walked along the mall to see what we felt like eating. We stopped for drinks at a bar and the bartender recommended Bang! It sounded like fun so we gave it a try. The drinks were really good (loved the Lemondrop martini), and we chose 6 tapas style items from the menu.... More

My wife and I were excited to try a new tapas place. Big disappointment ! Dirty restaurant, poor service, and mediocre food. Many other unique and delicious places in c-ville, don't waste a night here.

Great experience. Saw the sign on the door for Tripadvisor but had hard time to find it on the App. Only when I searched by name. What a lost opportunity for anybody who rely on Tripadvisor

Food was excellent. Each order had a taste of its own and was really well made. However they expected us to eat the chicken curry without giving us proper crockery and cutlery!! It had so much gravy but no one cared to even ask us. The ambience is too noisy, but friendly. So, depends on your mood. The furniture was... More

Have been here before a few times & had liked it. Tonight we went to celebrate our children's first wedding anniversary. They arrived right before us & ordered drinks. I asked for a glass of wine & told the server I wanted it to toast their anniversary. Besides never even wishing them well, the wine never arrived. I asked for... More

Bang! is just a really fun, really cool place to have dinner. As others have mentioned, the martinis are great. My brother-in-law had the Sin City, which turned out to be a good choice. We ordered a ton of food. It came out really, really fast so keep that in mind. We probably would have been better off ordering a... More

Bang is popular for its tapas and its cocktails. It is a perfect restaurant for a girls' night out or a date night.
