The halibut with hoisin sauce was one of the best meals I have ever had. We have eaten at Red Ginger multiple times and will continue to go back. We started with a sushi appetizer that was also incredible. They do Asian fusion with an innovative flare. On the service side, we had two servers assigned to our table, and in addition we were extremely impressed to see the manager keeping everything running smoothly. He was also filling water glasses, retrieving empty plates, and taking checks to the register. The Red Ginger staff really worked as a team to provide a fantastic dining experience. Perfect food; perfect dining experience!

Fabulous as always! Had the halibut and Vietnamese shaking beef as main courses, pot stickers and stilton salad as appetizers. Great wine list too! Red Ginger is always a must when we come up north every summer!

My favorite restaurant in Traverse City. Always busy and lively, the food and service are terrific. The Asian ribs, served as an appetizer, are compelling -- tender, sweet, spicy, lovely. The sushi is excellent, the wine list is ample, and the service is outstanding. I'm a big fan.

Red Ginger is always fabulous and is a favorite spot to bring guests or for a date night.
Excellent, as always.
My wife and I live in Grand Rapids, MI, but every time we go to Traverse City, we try to visit Red Ginger. This is arguably the best restaurant in TC. Reservations are a must-ours were for 9:15 pm and, even that late, the place was packed. The food is outstanding and we especially enjoy the appetizers-great sushi, among other delicious choices. Service is very good, there are lots of great beers on tap, and the atmosphere is festive. The only negative is that it is rather pricey-the two of us spent over $100 and we only had 2 beers each. Still, a great place for dinner.

We had sushi which was great and we try different rolls every time we come. Dan' signature roll is one of our favorites and we're never been disappointed! Others in our group had Kung Pao with shrimp which is to die for!

Wonderful meal & evening! My husband & I shared 4 small plates, and then skipped to dessert and everything was delicious.
Best in town!
Red Ginger offers the best sushi in town. The fine dining is always worth it. My boyfriend and I also vote them best salad ever. Try the Blue Cheese salad!

Best sushi I've ever had! Can't wait to go back!!
We enjoyed our dinner and were very impressed with the note they wrote us for our anniversary and also the free anniversary dessert. It's a great place for a special occasion.
One of the best restaurants! A favorite!
Red Ginger is one of the best restaurants I've been to. The staff members are all wonderful! The greeters and friendly and helpful, the bartender is personable, knowledgable and talented, the manager is easy to talk to and frequently walks around to tables in the dining area, the waiters are prompt, kind and go out of their way to give you what you want, and the chefs are all superb! Wonderful sushi chefs as well!!
Delicious sushi in northern Michigan
It's difficult to find good sushi in Michigan so I was very pleased with Red Ginger because everything tasted very fresh. The menu had a great selection of rolls and the sashimi was fantastic. The drink list was also good. The edamame may have been some of the best edamame I've ever had and it was a very nice size portion for what I'd normally expect. Overall a solid choice for a weekend date night in Traverse City!
We were vacationing in Traverse City and had a wonderful dining experience at Red Ginger. The service was fabulous. The bottle of wine was exceptionally priced and delicious and the ambience was great. We enjoyed the small plates better than the sushi. We would definitely go back to try more of the menu selections. There are a number of different options to select from on the menu. Well worth a visit!
My favorite in downtown Traverse City.
This is a consistently excellent restaurant; blood orange martini is great; wine selection ample and many local wines; sushi is wonderful, all of the dishes are excellent. A bit noisy with close quarters and always full. Make a reservation!

Red Ginger is always spot on.... From the moment you walk in, and greeted with a smile it only gets better from there.... Dan was our server tonight and he was exceptional... attentive but not intrusive and always around when we had a question or needed something! Thanks Dan for making our dinner memorable!

This was our first visit since the fire and remodel and were impressed with results. Feels cozier and quieter. The wait staff are friendly, sharp and knowledgeable. They were always anticipating our needs so there was a smooth and stress-free flow to our meal. Food was outstanding. My wife's Tai curry was out of this world while my Kung Pao halibut was quite good but too sweet by half for my taste. My salad would have been a highlight of any meal. We'll be back soon!

I have YET to have a poor experience here. The food was amazing from our spring roll appitizer to our black and white dessert. My tenderloin was so tender I was able to cut it with my fork! The ONLY thing I wish was better was if they had more non-seafood dishes on their menu. I don't typically like fish/seafood, but after seeing dishes my husband has ordered and other customers, I am actually willing to give it a try... It is on the pricier side, but for a special occasion, it is worth every penny!
My mouth waters thinking about the cuisine.
The ambiance adds to this unique, hip restaurant. The wait staff seem to love working here which ads to the pleasure of dining.

The Vietnamese beef was overcooked, dry, and burnt. The noodles were also undercooked.
Exceptional dining experience
My husband and I were taking a mini-vacation to celebrate my birthday. We dined at Red Ginger for the first time and were very impressed with the food, service, table settings, and ambiance. We were seated in a rather secluded area which was perfect for us. The sushi is outstanding and the wait staff were very helpful as we pondered our choices. We also enjoyed an appetizer of ceviche which was excellent. The chocolate dessert sampler was beautiful and delicious.
A downtown gem
The food is fresh and local and was deliciously prepared. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Would definately recommend to anyone visiting Traverse City!

I am new to traverse city and heard good things about red ginger, and avid sushi lover am i, for i couldnt wait to eat there. The service was above avrage for we didnt have to hunt the server down. I would highly recommend this place that has great style and taste, foor the food was delicous, fresh. I cant wait to come back to red ginger. Thankyou.
A little disappointed
I have never been somewhere so professional and nice and enjoyable, yet I left with a sadness. The food was great, the atmosphere was lovely, and the server was nice. What confused me is why there were two servers. My husband and I have both served and understand how demanding it can be, but it did not seem necessary. We left a 25% tip yet the server acted annoyed...very disappointing.
Experience was mindblowing. Their hospitality is off the carts and ambience is equally good. Food is innovative, exiciting, and delicious; a combination hard to find.
The food was excellent cant wait to go back.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at this restaurant, we both love Sushi, and this place has great Sushi. We were celebrating our 6 year anniversary they had a card on the table with that the staff sign, that was a nice touch and they had cake and ice cream at the end. When ever we go to Travers city will go to the Red Ginger. Thank you.
