The restaurant is very nice, and the service is excellent. The food is even better. We dined in one night, and I ordered the panang curry with tofu (as a substitute for the meat). They also have another curry option with tofu. It was so delicious that I ordered pick up the next night instead of getting room service at... More

The atmosphere of the place is very nice, but I didn't stay. I was tired from travel and really wanted higher end food to take back to my hotel. They were happy to accommodate. I had the ginger soy ceasar salad and spicy Thai noodle soup. Perfect!

Great atmosphere, excellent service, and most of all, the food is delicious - they even have a couple of terrific vegan dishes.

Having tasted many craft cocktails in my day, I'd put the drinks at Ginger's up against anybody. Always fresh ingredients mixed to create their unique taste. Outstanding bar. The food shares company with the best in town, but slightly cheaper than other top restaurants. The best appetizers in town. Do not pass on the lettuce wraps. Entrees are equally of... More

We had tickets to see Celtic Woman at the PAC and had dinner at Ginger before the show. It was my first time dining at the restaurant and it really lived up to its hype. The atmosphere was sophisticated yet cozy, and the service was perfect. I am vegetarian and my dining companion is a true meat lover and the... More

Put this place on your to-do list in Anchorage. The food is brilliant - lots of variety and interesting variations/combinations for those who like something more than steak and fries. Everything that we ordered was superb, and the waiter's recommendations were spot on. The service was impeccable - friendly and efficient. Our whole table had a fabulous night - we... More

I am a frequent traveler to Anchorage and have heard a lot about Ginger, so I finally got around to trying them out. I was delighted! Ginger has a comfortable, modern atmosphere. The wait staff are very professional and personable; they also know the menu and made excellent recommendations. I came in for Sunday brunch before heading to the airport.... More

Had the right amount of time to waster for a red eye back to the east coast and got a couple of recommendations. This place had the feel of fine dining instead of the steak house everyone loves that is just down the street. Comfortable bar area (I was a solo traveller) and a menu to match. Something did not...

My first meal at Ginger was so remarkable 13 months ago that it was my first priority to eat dinner there on my return this year. Even booked a hotel a half mile away knowing from last trip that car parking is an issue here. Only the menu has changed. Recognized the excellent waiter too. Same Pacific Asian fusion style....
