Diner Reviews
  • "I have eaten there twice. The food is really good and watching them prepare the food is entertaining. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "This is a generic asian style restaurant. I would not recommend this establishment if you have had real sushi or asian food. The service was terrible, the food was bland and uninteresting. I would never bother to go back."

  • "The food was great! We had a large party everyone enjoyed themselves."

  • "Nice ambiance, and good food. Been a couple times and I would recommend this place to anyone that likes hibachi."

  • "The service was a bit slow due to the street festival and all of the visitors in town. It appeared that they needed more staff."

  • "Just got back from Red Ginger for my son's birthday dinner. We had the worst sushi of ANY place we have been in Charlotte - bland and completely tasteless (except for one roll where we crunched into a gigantic piece of jalapeño and that was the only flavor in the entire roll). Soup was inedible; salads were swimming in goopy dressing; sashimi plate was tolerable except for one piece of fish (not even sure what it was) that was so gristly that it literally could not be chewed. Service was confused and haphazard at best. Our soup, salad and appetizer plates were still on the table when the entrees came so we just had to stack them to make room - where they stayed until we asked that they be cleared. So disappointing all the way around."

  • "Sushi came quickly and was good. I really like that they had multiple habachi tables - which would be a great dinner with friends - didn't even know that was available downtown. Service was a little jumbled but attentive. We were able to get in and out quickly and they had no trouble with splitting the check, which is key for downtown business lunches."

  • "First visit at Red Ginger. Well greeted by hostess and waitress!!!! Good food. Chef needed to be more aware of portion distribution among the group."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This place is great of looking for a laid back date night in the city. You still have the city feel but not all the rush as it's somewhat tucked away. Overall I loved this place!"
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "This is a perfect spot for large groups and the chefs are outstanding! If you have a group of 18 you would have the entire table, 2 cooking areas, to yourself and feel free to yell across the table. Had a blast."

  • "While the quality of what we ate was quite good, the number of out of stock sushi items was troubling."

  • "My gilfriend and I were in the mood for hibachi our last night in charlotte. We saw some reviews for Red Ginger in uptown so we decided to try it. We were glad we did because we had a great experience. The food was amazing and the hibachi chef was not only amazing at working the grill but was hilarious as well. We will be back."

  • "Great lunch, service and timliness was much better. They fill up pretty quickly, so I definitely recommend making a reservation. The lunch hibachi is always on point."

  • "We were looking for a last minute spot for a 10-person group and they were happy to accommodate us."

  • "This restaurant is very good for a dining experience. The cooks will dazzle you with their tricks and you will forget the wait for your food. Since they do cook in front of you, it is very neat to see what goes into your food and there are no surprises when you get it on your plate. The food is very good and the staff is very friendly!!!"

  • "My friends wanted to go here for lunch & I was so against smelling like a hibachi grill after lunch. I'm glad we went!! The food was fresh & delicious. In addition, the chef was pretty entertaining!! I'm thinking we should go back soon. The seafood options were great and fried rice off the grill was yummy. And it was in my budget to boot.:-)"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Their food is always great, but our service was pretty sub par. It wasn't really the servers fault, but the kitchen sent out everyones items separately. Those of us that got hibatchi waited about 20 minutes after those who ordered sushi to get our plates. They were good about making sure our water was constantly filled. I have had better experiences here."

  • "Been there multiple times... Good food... friendly service... nice mod place. Hibachi excellent... sushi inventive, well done. you can sit at hibachi table, or a regular table and have whatever you want. watch driving the wrong way down the one way street looking for it... comp valet across street at Mimosa Grill if needed... Should be more people there... wassup with that?"

  • "Excellent hibachi and sushi in a convenient uptown location. Good for lunch if you work south of trade street."

  • "We eat here a few times a month. Sadly the last three times (or more); service has been horrible. We sometimes get more service from a busser or water filler than our waitress. Waitress is always hard to find and usually forgets what we wanted or messes items up. We are usually at restaurant about 15-20 minutes longer than we need to be. Which is surprising; since you would think that they would want to "flip" customers. Music has been a little loud; not horrible but a little to loud for my liking on certain nights. Valet after 6pm is great. Food is usually good. Soup is very peppery. Wish it had no pepper or little."

  • "Food was fine. Typical Japanese Hibachi fair. Nice atmosphere and convenient to uptown venues. Service was VERY slow. Could not get a drink, only saw waiter a couple of times and even then he could not deliver drinks. Food came out on time but bar tender was obviously backed up. Had to cancel last drink order and ask for the check."

  • "Food was great...service was ok- although it was valentines day, so we expected some delays. Overall very happy with our first visit and we will be back!"

  • "Red Ginger has outstanding sushi and hibachi. The hibachi is a fun show, and we enjoy coming back. Favorites - M16 Roll, Angry Bird Roll, Chicken & Avocado App, and any Hibachi."

  • "I went with my Fiance for Restaurant week. This is your typical Hibachi restaurant. The food was good, the service was good, so I have no complaints. I would go back if we were more in to Hibachi. The restaurant week menu was huge, we got alot of food and by the time the main course was done we were already full."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We have been to the hibachi tables many times, and they're always excellent. We sat at a regular table for restaurant week. The entire menu is great. Our food was all very good, and the portions are large. The chicken avocado app was perfect! The atmosphere is nice and trendy, and a step less clubby than Enso or Nikko. Great outdoor dining area for summer."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The food here was ok. We had sushi for dinner. It was not the best sushi we have had, but it was still pretty good. I don't see it as anything special, especially for the price. The atmosphere was pretty modern and was definitely geared towards a younger crowd. It was a little loud in there for my taste, especially as a date night, but would probably be good for groups. I probably won't be going back any time soon."

  • "Food was very good. Steak was not as tender as expected. Would recommend it to friends."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "First time there. Restaurant was great. The temperature in the restaurant was a little chilly. I assume it was due to Extremely cold weather outside and that the door was constantly opening and closing. I will definitely take my husband next time."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Hibachi has been my favorite meal since I was a kid and this place is only ok. They over cooked the steak for everyone at the table and They do not serve or have in the back the spicy mustard sauce.I will not be going back."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The quality and food presentation was excellent. Our server was great, he was attentive and fun. I would recommend this restaurant and plan on going back."

  • "Service was slow, possibly due to it being restaurant week"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The food was great and so was the energetic atmosphere. The only issue was that it was COLD. The overhead vents were on & iwe were seated in the coldest area. It was so cold I couldn't finish my food because the vents made it cold before I could finish eating it. Heated it for lunch the next day and it was good!"
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "The food was nothing to brag about but I enjoyed it overall, I would definitely recommend eating here at least once to experience it for ones self. The service was great and the atmosphere was fun."

  • "Service was awful and portion sizes were terrible - felt like they were being stingy due to it being resturant week."

  • "We went here for a birthday dinner with 10 people. This place is great for large groups as the hibachi chefs are very entertaining! Everyone at the table enjoyed free sake that the chef squirted into everyones mouth from a squirt bottle. I've never seen that done before. It made for an interesting night! The service was pretty slow, they seemed under staffed. The food was just OK- nothing amazing. The desserts were not good, so I wouldn't suggest ordering dessert from here.. we only did because it came with our meal for Restaurant week. I personally think Nakato's has better food, but we still had fun because the chefs were funny!"
