Red Ginger wins hands down

We are locals and eat here often. Always striving to give great service. The food is good, the service excellent and the atmosphere is upbeat. Expect to pay more for the service and surroundings.

Unfortunately, it was not an enjoyable experience. The restaurant was crowded and very noisy. Sushi rolls were mediocre - a lot of rice, too little fish, rolls falling apart.

Very busy and very very loud. When we were dining the adjacent table at four young children definitely needed more parental guidance. The food though is well prepared promptly served and different than your usual American restaurant. Definitely worth a visit if you can put up with the noise.

this was a fabulous Asian restaurant. reasonably priced. great atmosphere. the appetizers are some of the best I've ever had and were the best part of the meal - dumplings, spring rolls, edamame but the best and most memorable was the black and white rice.

Didn't expect Japanese food in Traverse City. So it was a nice surprise. Although the food was not really authentic Japanese (more of Americanised mixed Asian food), it was to have for a change from burgers and pizzas.

We were looking forward to our meal at Red Ginger given the reviews on Tripadvisor. We made reservations because it appeared very busy. While the food was tasty -- but not exceptional-- we felt that the portions were very small relative to the price of the meal. Also, the noise level was so high we had a difficult time conversing....

We really enjoyed our meals, great selection and everything was excellent. We loved eating out on the back patio enjoying the beautiful evening. Highly recommend giving Red Ginger a try!

Went here for a special occasion and it did not disappoint. Ambiance is small, cozy & upscale. The cuisine is a very creative Asian International mix. Drinks are made well. Pricing is on the high end as you might expect.

My wife and I visited during festival week, happy hour prices and selection were great! Very good chic lettuce wraps and we tried 3 different rolls, all delicious and fresh! Cocktails were great and ice cold! Our server was a blast, we tipped her well, we are up on the weekends mostly and will visit again! Very nice restaurant right... More
