I honestly went to this place based on a lot of reviews I read with my girlfriend for a weekend getaway. We are huge japanese food junkies and sushi freaks so of course we end up picking the one place in the area that offers it. The wait time was pretty extensive and we ended up taking a seat right...

Red Ginger is one of my favorite places to eat when we go to traverse city. The food is always delicious and unique, the sushi options are plentiful and the staff is always attentive, knowledgeable and courteous. I will never go to TC and not have dinner here! ❤

The menu was great with lots of choices. You are not locked into a full meal, they offer several small plates or various sushi appetizers you can try. We choose to nibble at several different small dishes and appetizers and then share a couple off entrees. As a newcomer to Sushi this gave me a chance to experiment. Everything I... More

Our second visit to Red Ginger was a big disappointment. The service and the atmosphere were fine, but the food was nothing special. We could have eaten the same food at a low-cost Asian buffet-style restaurant. The sauces totally overwhelmed other ingredients. My tofu was tough and my husband's tenderloin was overcooked. We do not plan to go back.

We took cover on a blustery winter night after finishing Christmas shopping in the bar area. Service was immediate and friendly. Martinis were perfectly crafted. Sushi and Korean chicken were slightly larger than an appetizer (tapas) and came as described and ordered. I have a food allergy and the was very eager and prompt to sort out any concerns directly...

My wife and I were out shopping just before Christmas and decided to go to Red Ginger for supper. It was a Friday night and often that means a long wait in Traverse City. We were seated right away. Our waiter was fantastic and other staff kept our water full at all times. We ordered the naan with hummus for... More

From the house staff greeting you to the final conversation with the servers. The experience has been very enjoyable. Our favorite place to dine when we want that little extra attention. Have not dined on their new enclosed patio but I sure we will not be disappointed. This is where I take my wife out when our work week is... More
