    The restaurant was not busy and I expected the service would be much better. Once Anthony Hamilton and his party came in our waitress was not at all attentive to our table. Never offered a refill of water. In fact to get our check taken care of Reece, one of the guys with Mr. Hamilton, got her attention for us. I was expecting much better. This was the first time I have been to Ginger and I will return to use the remaining funds on my gift card and hope for a better second impression. A "famous" person should NOT receive better treatment than a local patron. We are more likely to return and/or recommend the restaurant!

    Disappointing sums up the night. My girlfriend's beef curry was served lukewarm and with too little actual beef, and the curry itself was remarkably bland. My flat iron, ordered medium rare, arrived more on the well side of medium-well. The only silver lining to the evening was the wonderful cocktails and drinks from the bar. Our server seemed very disinterested in how we enjoyed our meal, and only reappeared after we were done eating to ask what dessert we'd be having. Asking your table how the food is a fairly basic part of being a server. Overall, I do not recommend Ginger as a place to dine. If you're looking for great cocktails, though, I recommend the bar.

    Food was excellent. We had salmon. Server was on her 2nd day on job. We ordered a salmon entree and a kale salad, to share. Then, someone brings what looks like too much food to be a split entree. We tell this other person what we ordered. Next thing we know, they bring back both entrees and say one is on the house. The kale salad never appeared. So, our order was all mixed up, but it was a delightful resolution!

    My family and I tried Ginger based on good reviews. We were so satisfied with our dinner entree selections that we decided to go again for brunch on our last day. We preferred the dinner menu as they offered more seafood options. The quinoa/tofu salad and the banana/lemongrass soup were our favorites. I would definitely recommend this place to friends who plan to visit Anchorage.

    I'm in ANC monthly (business), and this was my "go-to" restaurant. Past dinners (10) were excellent. Recommended to my colleagues as "fantastic." This visit, and my last were disappointments. The redeeming feature was the prompt and courteous water server. I waited over 10 minutes for a server to stop at my table. (Restaurant did not seem too busy. I observed at least 8 open tables). He did not introduce himself, apologize for the wait, or even mention the specials. Perhaps he had no idea I had been there that long or thought someone else had the table. The vegan curry was mediocre. Unfortunately, 2 poor dining experiences within a 6 week period cancel out any of the great food and service I once experienced.

    We had a very nice meal here. We were early and were seated quickly. My elderly mother ordered the wrong type of wrap appetizer and the waiter immediately read her expression, cheerfully took it back and got her the Spring Rolls. They were very good as was the Thai crab soup. My mother & sister had the Thai Shrimp Noodle soup and enjoyed it very much. I had the Duck Breast. It was good, but they ran out off the gnocchi and substituted risotto. The dish would have been better without the risotto. I know that duck is served on the rare side, but this was too rare for me, so I had to eat it while it as hot. The Blueberry Eggrolls were great. The serving includes two rolls, which are very rich. Splitting an order would have been best.

    As a vegan on my first visit to Anchorage, AK I wasn't expecting to find great food. Ginger was a pleasant surprise. From what looks like a typical downtown sushi bar on the our dude turned out to be a culinary delight. Their baby kale sale with feta, watermelon and green olives was divine! I also had a wonderful butternut squash, banana and hot pepper soup that provided multiple surprises with each spoonful. For dessert their bowl of mixed berries is unique in that it is drizzled with balsamic vinegar and powdered sugar, then topped off with coconut sorbet. Overall, the meal was an unforgettable one and it made my otherwise dull trip to Alaska worthwhile.

    One thing I hate most while on vacation, or any time is to be rushed! Our over zealous waiter was just doing that, to the point I told him we were not in a hurry. Ahi tuna tower was fresh and flavorful, but we have had better. Next strawberry chili salad we split, nice balance of flavors with a little bit of spice. We split the decedent scallop and Mac n cheese. I can't imaging eating all myself! Scallops were big and plump - seared perfectly. Mac and cheese with hint of truffle oil was delightful. The lower rating was for the tuna and the rush. Over all I'd be back if they change up their menu for different seasons.

    Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, knew the menu with perfect wine pairings for the food. We had the scallops with macaroni and cheese, and the special of the evening- wagu sirloin with fingerling potatoes, the tuna appetizers were outstanding, I almost just ordered more of that instead of a main course. The sauces and seasonings were just right to bring out flavor of the meats and seafood without overpowering; adding salt or pepper at the table would have been a crime.

    I like this restaurant and have been here a few times before. Great ambiance and decor. I liked their brunch menu - the Biscuits and Gravy and Hot Mess were divine! Of the 4 meals we had 3 were very good and one (burger) was not so great. Good service from wait staff but it seemed like our food was a bit slow to come out. All in all it was an enjoyable meal and I will come back again.
