We came here for my birthday celebration dinner. We were seated in the side room which I had previously called to make sure we were in the main room, with all the action! We spoke to the hostess, who passed on to the manager, Jimmy, that I was not a happy bday girl. Jimmy immediately took care of the misunderstanding, moved our entire dinner party and made sure we, and I were specifically, were taken care of.

Hands down - 10 stars to Jimmy alone! Thanks for everything! Fun place!!

Place was super cool! The sushi boat was well worth the money. Drinks was kind of watery and to sweet for the ones we got but it's a great place!!

Wanted to eat inside of restaurant, not the bar area. Bar area forced us to fend off people wanting to sit at our table that we reserved. Music got louder and could not chat with friends as easily after 11pm.

Food was fantastic. Our server was lovely. Not the place you'd want to go if you're looking to have more of an intimate conversation. Though it is a fantastic place to go if you're looking to start your night before hitting up gas lamp. Wish I would have taken more pictures of the food to share but after the first bite of the wings we couldn't wait to try the rest of what we ordered.

The food was great (super fresh shutoro and otoro). The prices are pretty reasonable the ambiance is very lively. I have to say the service at times was very slow and as much as I enjoy dim lights, here they went a bit too far.

Our reservation was for 7:30 PM, we were running late due to the fact that we couldn’t find parking. Parking is a problem downtown San Diego. We called to let them know we’re running late, they were very courteous and said they will keep our table for us. We arrived went upstairs checked in. We got a table right away, the server was a fantastic amazing server .
She recommended some dishes for us since it was our first time. Food arrived the portions were perfect, love the place love the food. We were so excited we called for the manager and gave them a fantastic feedback. Recommend attending this particular restaurant.

Great food and atmosphere! Only thing that could’ve been a little better was the service. Waiter was friendly but manager came over and asked us to leave since we had been there for 2 hours and people were waiting. We had been waiting to receive checks for at least 30-45 mins before being asked to leave.

This is my second time returning to Bang Bang. We sat at the sushi bar, where Joey was out sushi chef. The quality of the sushi was amazing. Joey really knows his stuff!! We had his specialty roll, the "Mermaid Booty," which is the best roll I have had to date. Also tried the sea urchin roe for the first time - amazing. Can wait to come back here soon,

We came to town for my husband to take a professional test and decided to check it out. We had a great experience. We made a reservation for 6:30 and it was not overly crowded. The atmosphere is fun and the food was delicious. Our waiter Kyle was fantastic. We are huge sushi lovers so it ranks high in our places to go when in SD. We will definitely be back. We would like to check out the club sometime 😊

Food never came out after one hour waiting. After deciding to leave we were told the food was dropped off to a different table which doesn’t make sense.

We were in San Diego for a bachelorette party and had a easy time making a reservation. I didn’t notice a table time limit mentioned on open table but know that there is a 2 hour limit on your table. There were 12 in our party And didn’t have a problem with getting service or feeling rushed, food and drinks were served promptly. It was a fun atmosphere for our occasion but it was really loud and hard to hear the person next to you. We also got bottle service for when the restaurant turned into a club. I don’t recommend checking in for bottle service until about 11pm. The DJ’s early on in the night are mediocre but around 11:30/12 the music got really good. I would recommend it if you’re looking for a place to get the night started.

The overall experience was really goo the hostess, barista and the server were really nice and professional. The decor was cool and trendy! The only minus was the long stairs up the restaurant, do they have an elevator? Well we enjoy ourselves and we would come back for sure.

Place was exceptional. For that price point the customer should have a cloth napkin. Ambiance and service were elite. Paper napkin comically lowered the experience value. How does one finish a third roll and wipe their hands on their pants. Senior sushi restaurant freshman napkins. Spend the money.

We had a table of 8 with a reservation. The restaurant wasn't busy. They brought out our meals at different times over a 2 hour period. Other tables that came after us had their food before some of us. Then it took 45 minutes to get our check back when we paid. the food was just okay. Nothing to brag about.

Went for a bachelorette party and they have great menu options for large groups. The service was good. Some of the non-sushi food took some time to come out, but besides that overall good experience. It doubles as a night club so it is pretty loud

I had an amazing first time at bang bang. The hostess, Jude, was very accommodating to our reservation. Originally reserved for 630 pm but since we came from OC and got stuck in traffic, she managed to move the reservation to a later time. Got the chef’s choice of 15 piece sashimi, hello kitty special roll, and lobster basil dynamite signature dish. The show that night was also super fun!
