On our first visit last year the food was a bit disappointing, but based on recommendations by others we decided to try it again. This place does not take reservations for parties under 6 and it was busy when we arrived. The host invited us to have a drink, and even order our first tapas, assuring us that we would... More

We went to BANG as it was a block from our B and B. It is casual and the food is good. Somewhat different as far as tapas, but we enjoyed it.

Bang is a nice casual spot with a menu of small plates. Great variety. Dishes vary from moderately to quite spicy. Everything $6-8 per plate. Five for two of us were sufficient. Flavors were all excellent and interesting. Then we shared a very good dessert. Wine list OK but not great. Prices reasonable but there should be more variety. Service... More

Bang offers a nice selection of tapas along with an inspiring cocktail menu. If you are a bourbon lover, don't miss the Knob Creek "Banghattan". The food is unique and well-made, although we found the dumplings and taco shells to be over-cooked, and possibly the deep fryer temp was too hot. The atmosphere is hip and great for a date... More

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
