Had a family dinner last evening celebrating my sister in laws birthday. They made her feel like a queen with a personally signed birthday card by the staff and a chocolate dessert. ALL the staff was wonderful and the food was exquisite. The Hangar steak special shouldn't be a special, I want it again. And the two Thai Coconut Shrimp... More

Red Ginger offers great Asian cuisine right in the center of downtown Traverse City. A great choice for sushi and other Asian selections (Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese). Contemporary and creative. Everything I've ordered here has been excellent! The kind of restaurant and experience you would find in a big city.

We went in without reservations but were seated almost immediately at a high table next to the front window. We ordered Spring Rolls and Lettuce Wraps. Both were just okay. The spring rolls were a little on the done side and the lettuce wraps lacked a little on the taste side.

We dined at Red Ginger for our anniversary. The staff was exceptionally attentive to our needs. We were seated right away after placing a reservation. They had a card on our table wishing us a Happy Anniversary. I had the seafood pad thai. It was sooo good! If you like seafood, you will like this dish.

An absolutely incredible, delicious meal that was supported by excellent service and attention to a wonderful dining experience. We make this a must stop when were visiting TC. Reservations would be advisible since this seems to be a hot spot for TC.

Upon finally deciding where to go for dinner we decided to try Red Ginger. Walking in we were told at least a half hr wait, within 5 min we had a table. Appetizer was Calamari (maybe the best I've had) was the bomb, a bit of a sirachi spice with some honey. Ended up splitting a few sushi rolls with... More

Best place to meet your girlfriend for happy hour and sushi. Talk about food, local wine & cider, favorite beaches and what made you laugh out loud this week. Red Ginger is posh enough to put on your favorite flirty skirt and nice yet comfortable dress shoes. If you have a bigger group there is a balcony. I love the... More

The service is always exceptional which I appreciate vastly. They cater to the wine and diners and also the quick in& out meal goers. The food is tasty at a rating that I would give a firm 3.5 out of 5. They have delicious cuts of meat in addition to the sushi they serve. Pricing is a little bit too... More

I pride myself in being a good home chef. My hubby said the halibut with corn risotto was hands down the best risotto ever. Have to step up my game. Everything about Red Ginger is first class. Host, waiters, food recommendations, oh and the Manhattans with Michigan cherries.
