Great food

We love the food and staff here. They went out of their way to make our 40th anniversary special, from seating us in the back out of the way of heavy traffic to meal suggestions to a signed card and nice little dessert. We've eaten here a couple of times and it is so modern and fresh, but the... read more

Red Ginger is the "go to" restaurant in Traverse. The mango calamari is to die for...and all the entrees are superbly crafted and presented. If you're a martini drinker and want to try something a bit different, don't miss their cucumber martini. That in itself will bring you back. Super service..can't wait to go back!!

We have been going to Red ginger for the past three years and have always enjoyed it. Service always excellent and that did not disappoint. But the food!? In a word, "ricey". We had the firecracker roll and the trio of most favorite rolls. We are bummed! This is our go to place for sushi in TC. Next week we'll... More

Grabbed a later dinner after getting into town on a Saturday night. This is one of the few places that serves full dinner after 9pm which was perfect for us. Very hip and trendy vibe inside, bar was full with ladies having what looked to be a girls' night out. Service was attentive, Josh & Dan were very eager to... More

My brother has been telling me to try Red Ginger for years. We finally got around to it. We were very pleased. Happy hour has good deals. We ordered drinks and Edamame. It took a second to figure out how to eat them. Would be a good idea for waitress to explain when she brought it to the table. Anyway,... More

Went in with my family for Traverse City's fantastic restaurant week and was very impressed with the food. I had sushi while my husband had a Korean steak for an entree and we both loved it. Appetizers and dessert were also phenomenal and included with our meal. Only complaint was the waitress who didn't show a lot of face time,... More

By far, one of our favorite restaurants in TC. We've dined here countless times and have nothing negative to say! (Well, maybe the large Friday evening crowds!) The sushi so fresh and there are always specials everyday.

Everything about this place from the service to the food to the wine was wonderful. Can't say enough about our experience here.
