Red Ginger of Traverse City Ratings and Reviews
Red Ginger is a must for our family. My daughter was celebrating her birthday and requested to celebrate it at Red Ginger. Service was great and the food is wonderful. We loved everything we ordered. We are from out of town and it is on our list to eat there every time we are in town.
We did like it overall and the food quality was very good, but our food service was too fast and drinks were a bit slow. We ordered the lettuce wraps as an appetizer and they were brought to the table immediately, which was fine as we were hungry and our drinks had just arrived. But the entrees came shortly after, which we were not ready for. I'd suggest they slow down a bit and not try to turn tables so quickly!
We made a reservation for our anniversary. The day of they called to confirm and asked if it was a special occasion. They documented what the occasion was for us so when we arrived the hostess greeted us with "happy anniversary". They took us to our table which had our last name artfully hand written on a card reserving the table which was right along the river. The card was signed by the staff and said "happy anniversay" and our waitress greeted us with "Happy anniversary". At the end of our meal, which was delicious (the dragon roll is amazing) we were treated to dessert on the house. We felt special and very taken care of. Thanks for a great evening Red Ginger!
Had a perfect dining experience celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary with my wife. Our food was prepared perfectly, all five courses. Try the Sea Bass! Our service was top notch. Mitch and the rest of the staff were amazing. Drinks were delicious, and my wife and I both enjoyed the “Snow Blossom”.
Unbeknownst to me, the staff surprised us with a congratulatory note and a complimentary desert for chooosing Red Ginger for our anniversary celebration. I also believe they seated us in a quieter, more romantic area, overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay because they knew we were celebrating a special occasion.
Overall, we loved celebrating with Red Ginger and find it to be well worth the little extra you spend to dine there.
The service level matched the quality of food. Both were superb. It has been a new trend that a great restaurant doesn’t always mean great service. The service of this restaurant is unmatched. Whoever does the training should be given a raise. We are frequent fine diners, and this restaurant was top of the mark. The seafood pad Thai was delightful. Hats off.
My husband and I ate here for the first time last Thursday night during a week-long trip Up North. What a great restaurant. We could only get an early reservation (5:15) but we were seated at a great table near the waterfront-facing windows and, importantly, not once rushed by the waitstaff to turn the table. It was definitely filling up as we were leaving 90 minutes later, plus there was a very lively bar scene throughout our meal. My husband had the kung par chicken and I had one of the eel rolls - both were terrific - perfect seasoning and portion sizes. We will definitely keep Red Ginger on the list for a return trip when next in Traverse City.
Our dinner was fantastic! Chicken lettuce wraps were delicious. The only quirky thing about our night is that we had told them we were celebrating my birthday. I received a birthday card, but then all night, the waiter kept telling us, "happy anniversary!" :)
We were there for a special occasion and I am a vegetarian. The food was phenomenal and the staff were so nice, they all had signed a birthday card for him and wished him happy birthday while we were leaving. Paid special attention to special person! Awesome!!
I cannot portray my desire for everyone to go to Red Ginger enough! My wife and I went here for our one year wedding anniversary and it was just perfect. From the hospitality, to the food, to the layout of the restaurant it was simply great! The food is delicious but what really did it for my wife and I was the extra mile service we received. The waiter we had, Randy, as well as the assistant servers for our drinks was amazing. We truly felt pampered. Due to it having a large selection of sushi/seafood the prices are higher but honestly not that high. For what we received in the form of service I was happy to pay extra for my wife and I to feel spoiled. The drinks we delicious and again the service was great. I would recommend this to anyone for just a casual dining out experience, a special celebration or for a family get together. All will be well taken care of!
