Great little place. We went here for dinner with a colleague. We recently went Vegan and while we had no reservation and did not want to wait for a table we sat at the bar. Not the best bar but it worked for the 3 of us. Told the server we were vegan and she whipped out a whole separate... More

Fun for groups, although some of the dishes only come with 3-4 portions to share. Bang is also well known for it's martinis and will prepare a "virgin martini" on request.

Interesting choices, good way to try different dishes though a little pricy. Enjoyed most of dishes.

Bang! is an Asian-styled Tapas place. I felt more filled with just a few menu items here than I typically do at these kinds of restaurants, which is a plus. All the food I tried was great. They've got a decent cocktail list too, so it'd be worth checking out even just for drinks.

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
