We spent the day touring and riding bikes and were quite hungry. We ordered from the specials menu: tuna sashimi, halibut, salad with filet, sharing all. Outstanding creative preparations, presentations and a nice card. If you love fish, and creative Asian, you should not miss Red Ginger

This place had an amazing ambiance, along with a very nice setting to where you could see the restaurant at perfect angles. It was really need to see the sushi bar right up front around all the table to where you could actually watch them make it fresh. Then right next to them you could see them making the food... More

I went with a couple girlfriends while we were up in TC for our 30th birthdays, June 2015. We were lucky enough to eat outside and it was perfect! All the food was delicious and the sushi was definitely the star! I'm coming back to TC Oct 2016 and I'm sure we will be enjoying the restaurant.

On the recommendation of a friend, husband and I ate at Red Ginger while we were on vacation in Traverse City and basically liked it but found the food uneven. My husband *loved* the forbidden rice but found the minced chicken in lettuce wraps unimpressive. I liked the Thai "Caesar" salad but was surprised (not pleasantly) by how sweet the... More

Nice selection of sushi and other asian food. Delicious small plates. We tried a variety and shared. It's not cheap, but it is very good!

The service was excellent --not overly solisitous or overly friendly. The food ,however, was disappointing. My Thai salad was a delicious blend of flavors, but my husband's Caesar salad was a joke. Five leaves of lettuce and three Parmesan chips is not a salad. The tofu lettuce wraps tasted just like those at PF Changs--which I like, but does Red... More

First time visiting the Red Ginger. I was very pleasantly surprised at the cuisine. It was amazing looking and tasted even better. My girlfriend is a sushi snob, but loved every bite. We will definitely be back!

There's a lot of pan-Asian fare on this menu, which may be good, but the sushi is where it's at. Incredibly tasty salmon and tuna rolls, a great daily chef's special roll, and the signature roll, with buttered shrimp and veggies, will convert the most trepidatious sushi-goer into a fan. Great beer and wine choices, too. Pricy but the rolls... More
