We love Red Ginger and i will start by saying the ONLY reason for it not getting 5 stars is it is very busy and a bit loud for our tastes BUT the food and service more than make up for it. We have tried all of the Sushi rolls and love them all with the Spicy Tuna and Unagi... More

My husband sent Red Ginger an email along with his reservation, letting them know we were coming for our 15th wedding anniversary and asked for a nice view. We were delighted when we were seated near the bay-side windows and found a very nice card addressed to us, signed by Red Ginger staff. It was a nice touch. Our team... More

My husband and I were in TC for our anniversary in FEBRUARY. The temps were sub zero and we walked here from our hotel. The experience did NOT disappoint. The restaurant was buzzing and busy. The service was great, the food fantastic and original. We will be back!

We arrived on time for our 7:15 reservation, and were seated within a few minutes. We had too server's and I... More

This is a must for a TC visit. I was so sad last 4th of July when they were closed but now they are back and better than ever. Love ordering drinks off the IPAD!

While staying in Traverse City with friends we visited Red Ginger for dinner. Right next to the State Theater, it is an upscale Asian/Sushi Fusion restaurant and bar with a very diverse menu geared towards foodies. The decor is pleasing and classy, the service is attentive and friendly - we had a team of two waiters who were on point... More

A wide ranging menu and friendly service made this a great dinner for our family of five. Some had sushi/sashimi and others had steak but all enjoyed the meal. We will eat here again the next time we're in Traverse City.
