The food is fantastic. The seafood is the freshest in town, fresh from the Great Lakes or flown in fresh from out of town. While the entrees are excellent, we normally order one more appetizer than the number of people and that is plenty for all. Be sure to try the calamari because with the red chili sauce, it's the...

Their happy hour is outstanding and their food and preparations are done very well. The dinner selections is very interesting and not the run of the mill.

Red Ginger is THE place to be seen in Traverse City. Food is an interesting blend of Asian and locally sourced food, uniquely prepared. Fish dishes are excellent, sushi is good, Chinese food more like high end Chinese than the usual American Chinese fare. Service is always attentive; drinks well made. The restaurant because of its local vibe is always... More

My husband and I enjoy coming to Red Ginger a couple times a month. GREAT, FRESH ingredients. Their sushi is hands down, the best in the area. Vegan and gluten free friendly menu options including deserts! Cocktails are treated with respect and not just spilled into the glass... it is a delicate craft to make an exceptional cocktail, and Red... More

My wife and I have enjoyed restaurants around the world, including in many major cities in the US. We consider Red Ginger to be among the best anywhere. Its Asian fusion dishes are uniformly fabulous. We've eaten there many times and have. never been disappointed. Some of their standard dishes are better than those we've had elsewhere (the chicken lettuce... More

For fish lovers, there's nothing better than fresh fish.....and nothing worse when it isn't. Red Ginger is excellent. We sat at the sushi bar and watched first hand how the sushi chefs take pride in their work. And this pride showed in the quality of product and manner in which it was presented. Service was attentive without annoyance. We will... More

A great restaurant for special occasions or just for a great dining experience. The wait staff is very attentive. They know the menu and are able to recommend items on the menu. We went during restaurant week. A three course meal for $25 was a great bargain. The food is amazing. The Thai curry, the Vietnamese chicken, the sushi, and... More

Red Ginger goes beyond just good food. It is an event in leisure pleasures. We patron them about once a month and the expectations are always high for good food and service. In 4 years we have yet to be disappointed. Meal preparation, presentation, pace, and value for a high end restaurant is great.

Red Ginger is a great place for lunch or dinner. They had the best wings with an amazing blue cheese dip. The Thai Pad was so good! Very nice atmosphere at a reasonable price.

The food is original and flavorful. My tastes buds were doing a happy dance. The service was attentive and they made some great wine suggestions,too. I loved everything about this place.
