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....

As Alaska residents, we try to experience new restaurants whenever we are in Anchorage. We had heard good things about Ginger so decided to try it. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent and the service was too. Though pricey (as all good restaurants are in Alaska), we will go back again!

A stopover in Anchorage and not really planning where to go for dinner, we looked over the info in our hotel and found the info for Ginger. We called to make sure they could take us and walked from our hotel. I am not sure if we would have just gone in if we just passed by, it appeared to... More

After reading all the glowing revues we decided to go here for dinner. While the service was very good. the food we had simply did not live up to the hype. The sauce overwhelmed the pork roll appetizer. My wife enjoyed her duck entrée, but I had no such luck with the scallops with mac & cheese. There were not... More

It's the infusions. No it's the homemade sour mix. Nah, it's really the best bourbon and all that muddling. Anything is better muddled! I have to say that once I tasted Ginger's Old Fashioned, I've tried it 5 other places in Anchorage, only to come back to Ginger's where it is served with style and tastiness. Oh, and did I... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. We have been wanting to try this restaurant out for awhile. This place did not disappoint. The cocktail were amazing and our meals were cooked perfectly! The service was extremely good. I highly recommend this restaurant. I also recommend reservations because when we went it was busy.

We had dinner in Ginger. We had swordfish, which was excellent. The duck was also very good. The dessert was average. Service was very good. However the price is relatively high.

I gave another chance at Ginger. This was my third visit here over the years. The food is above average, the presentation is excellent, but the prices are quite high for what is received. I went in for lunch this time and ordered a tofu and shiitake kebab. Flavor was very good and presentation was wonderful. But I would have... More
