Went here as they had Gluten Free options. They weren't well versed in these options, but the dishes we had were quite good. Fun atmosphere, fresh fish and a trendy little spot for downtown TC.

I've been going to Traverse City regularly for ten years and since they've been open I've dined at Red Ginger 2-3 times a year. It is consistently very good to excellent and the staff is very accommodating of my food allergies. Based on experience they seem to excel when it comes to fish, whether it involves a sauce or a...

We love this place and have eaten here many times. Each time is not just good, but excellent. The ambiance and vibe are good and the wait staff is second to none. We shared two different types of sushi and I had the lettuce wraps with tofu and Linda had the salad special. WOW ! We were with good friends... More

No, I don't like sushi so keep that in mind for this review. But I was with someone who does and she loves this place. I had great mussels. We've been here twice now... aside from the good food, the main memory is the noise. This is not a quiet place... but after a bit of time you'll grow used... More

Excellent asian fusion food and the service was fantastic. This is a very hip and happening restaurant right on the main street in downtown Traverse City. Good specialty drinks, a decent wine list and the food was wonderful.

I like to try sushi restaurants in the various places I visit. Red Ginger was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. The sushi was very fresh, good texture and flavorful. Like other reviews have said, there will be a wait, but it was worth it to me.

Stopped here for dinner this week while in town for work because I had a craving for seafood or sushi. Will definitely go back, had 2 different rolls and both were delicious! Server was very helpful as I am fairly new to the world of sushi and wanted to try some types I haven't had before...her recommendations were spot on!

The place was super busy and there was an hour long wait. But a good thing is you can walk around the downtown area (an alternative to hanging out at their bar) and the staff will text you on your phone when your table is ready. Pretty efficient system. Several curries on the menu and sushi as well. There were... More

We keep coming back to this restaurant. The food is unbelievable! Always consistent and great quality. I especially love the spicy tuna, but anything on the menu is superb..

The food is very fresh and very good compaired to other sushi restaurants. The staff is very kind and what suprised me the most is that there is 2 waiters/waitress' for every table. It is a little pricy but very good.
