Asian fusion menu, lively diners, great service, and conveniently located. Food was great - best surprise was the crab rangoon...in tightly wrapped 'cigarette sticks' easy for dipping into an array of sauces. Sushi nagori prepared expertly and received rave reviews around the table.

We went to Red Ginger to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Not only did we have a wonderful meal, but the staff was amazing.

We have been meaning to get to Red Ginger for quite awhile and make use a gift card we had received. This particular evening we were not in the mood for an entire dinner so we opted for a couple of glasses of wine, and shared a salad and an appetizer. The house red wine was ok but not exceptional.... More

All my life (aka, the past 5 years), friends, family and strangers have recommended Red Ginger to me. Having had access to delicious sushi at home, I hadn't made the visit a top priority. BOY do I regret it now. The flavors are fresh, the drinks are amazing (blood orange martini is a MUST), and the service matches the experience.... More

Red Ginger is always a good meal, but it is expensive. There are not many other options in this area for sushi (to the extent that is offered here). The ingredients are flown in fresh daily, so naturally the price is higher. The service can be touch and go, but in most cases we have pretty good service.

On a busy summer evening, we found 2 open seats at the bar. We don't mind eating at the bar so this worked out perfectly. The evening began with 2 blood orange martinis that were fabulous. We keep trying to recreate it at home and just can't get it quite as good. For dinner we just shared a curry that... More

My parents really hyped this place up, but currently living in New York I've seen my variety of sushi/Asian restaurants. The place was packed, and from what I've seen of Traverse City so far, I can see why. Cool vibe. Modern. Unfortunately they were charging $9 for standard sushi rolls (small rolls not specialities) and then they were loosely made... More

Stopped in for a drink and sushi while shopping downtown. Great atmosphere and staff was absolutely wonderful and professional. Ordered the house martini, delicious and strong! Sushi was fresh and delicious as well. Bathrooms were downstairs and exceptionally clean.
