Always Amazing

Wild Ginger is a great choice, both in Seattle and Bellevue. The ambiance, service, and food are consistently excellent, both for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended for dinner, but we can usually get a table in the bar without one. I've been to this restaurant multiple times, and I have... read more

Wild Ginger is a great choice, both in Seattle and Bellevue. The ambiance, service, and food are consistently excellent, both for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended for dinner, but we can usually get a table in the bar without one. I've been to this restaurant multiple times, and I have never been disappointed.

The inventive Asian fare at this fun restaurant appeals to young and old. There is something for everyone on this varied menu. The family style approach allows all to try and the children's menu is very well priced. The service was attentive and not pushy. Also has booth seating which is a plus. We also were seated right at the... More

,Maybe we arrived on an "off" night, but the meal the five of us shared was not as great as we thought it should have been. There's a lot to like about this restaurant. Location, ambiance, interesting menu, nice bar, and excellent service. Of all the items we ordered, the seven flavored beef was pretty good. The Kung Pao chicken... More

My husband and I were in town for a couple of days and went to Wild Ginger on a recommendation. The place was crowded, but our table was waiting. The main dishes come in two sizes -- smaller and larger. We chose three smaller plates to share, the black pepper scallops, the duck and the hanoi tuna. The duck was... More

Need to make reservations in this Seattle delight. The seating is wonderful, the ambience is just right and the food is up there with the best I've had anywhere in the world. I've had great meals in Singapore and Hong Kong and this equalled my good experiences. A must visit place.

We went in for a lunch here, the food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The wine was extensive and the prices I found to be below retail and of back vintages. They will also sell takeaway for those difficult to get Washington wines I would go back but next time for dinner so I could enjoy the wine list... More

Wild Ginger is known for it's amazing Asian inspired food, and for good reason: they really, really know what they're doing. So much so, that they have multiple locations, and not one of them serves anything but delicious food. Before I forget, if you like hot and sour soup, order theirs. It is fabulous, and unlike any other hot and... More

Absolutely incredible cognac marinated lamb chops. Get those every time with their Szechuan green beans and it's an awesome meal.
