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.

I too am not certain why this restaurant is rated so highly. The bar is great but the food was not so great. Our meals were over salted and over priced. I would go back for drinks but will not eat there again.

My husband and I were looking for a great meal on a recent stay in Traverse City. Red Ginger was highly recommended by a local business owner and it did NOT disappoint. Simply wonderful with a helpful waitress who also engaged us in conversation about local wineries.

I had heard Red Ginger was the best restaurant in Traverse City, best food, best service, most expensive but with an Asian flair, the latter being why I had never dined there. But another couple, who are admitted “foodies”, persuaded us to dine with them at Red Ginger. It was an exciting experience and way beyond our expectations. Everything I... More

This is one of our favorite places in TC. It's always perfect for an occasion (anniversaries and birthdays), but also a Go To for Happy Hour, a nice dinner, or great lunch. Atmosphere feels big city in the heart of TC but it's still small town friendly. Great spot for a dinner during TC Film Festival!

This was a dinner with girlfriends without our husbands, so we could go to a new and different restaurant. I chose Red Ginger because of all of the wonderful things I had heard about them They did not disappoint. Friendly, but professional service. We had the salmon special, and it was wonderful. It is an upscale place for a special... More
