Great place that you would see in a large city. The food was amazing and the staff was very attentive. Even though they were extremely busy they made every effort to be accommodating. A stop we make every time we visit Traverse City.

The restaurant is busy, with tables fairly close together, but the volume still allows for conversation. Large menu, with lots of choices: Pad Thai, curries, spring rolls, etc. The drink menu comes on an iPad, the food on paper. The menu is a bit confusing, with almost too many types of choices. I can't imagine a quiet, romantic dinner here,... More

When we walked in, were told it was an hour wait for a table so we opted to eat at the bar. The bartender was very nice and makes a great drink (so my husband says). We each had sushi (yes in Michigan!). Well prepared and delicious. Hit the spot, served quickly despite how hectic it was. A bit noisy... More

We visited my old college professor who is retired and lives on Torch Lake, some 20 miles away. Red Ginger is their favorite place in Traverse City and we can see why. It was crowded but we had reservations and only had to wait long enough for a drink at the bar. The main thing I would compliment the chef... More

On a random road trip we ended up in Traverse City. Town is ADORABLE with a ton to do for families and couples. Downtown was hopping but we ended up at the Red Ginger bar for dinner. Being a native Floridian, I'm pretty picky about my sushi. This place topped anything I've had in the Midwest AND many places I've... More

Sushi was great that we ordered. Had 5 different kinds of the Sushi and all of them were very well prepared and tasted great. Cocktails were very good and the bartenders were very informative on different drink specials and so on.

It was so good the first night we had to go back and try something else. Had the special halibut with risotto, delicious. My husband had a sushi roll and salad. The next time we had 4 different small plates and couldn't pick a winner because they were all that good. Nice wine list and excellent service. This one is... More
