Always such a pleasure!We've been coming to Wild Ginger since it began down by Pike Market. It never disappoints! The food is always outstanding, and the service is always competent, courteous, and knowledgeable.
Princess Prawns were light and lovely.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat flavorsThe perfectly designed flavors will have us coming back. Pan fried sea bass for me, seared tuna for my husband, grilled asparagus and a flourless chocolate torte made for a tasty celebration. The service was flawless, just attentive enough. The gluten-free options were clearly labeled and I didn't feel like I had to settle. We had a lovely evening and look forward to returning.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I love goingMy friends and I love going to Wild Ginger for lunch, however, I am always slightly amused (or maybe slightly annoyed), that even though I make reservations ahead of time, I often seem to get a less than favorable table. I recall one time being sat at a tiny table for two in the front window squeezed in by a very large, and very noisy party; this time we were taken to the furthest table from the reception desk, next to service tray jacks and somone's scooter (seriously). Neither my guest nor I are large women, but they actually had to adjust things so that we could get into our seats.
Again, I love Wild Ginger, but sometimes get tired of sitting in the hinterlands.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience in DiningA gem for dining in downtown Seattle. The prices were reasonable, service friendly and the interior decor well done.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was informative, friendlyServer was informative, friendly and recomendations were excellent.

Ideal for visitors staying downtown and the lunch crowd as well.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis would be even betterThis would be even better w a large group of people to sample more of the delicious menu4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time the duckHad a great time the duck was wonderful and our server was exceptionally pleasant. I think her name was Des, very nice and good knowledge of the menu.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable ambiance andVery enjoyable ambiance and the food was delicious. My dining companion said the seabass lettuce cupe appetizer was wonderful. They have several vegan / gluten-free options on the menu. I had the tofu / eggplant dish and it was delicious. Great atmosphere but still comfortable for a good conversation. Greatly enjoyed it and plan to return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findWe went with our waiter's suggestions and got the pot stickers, peppered beef, scallops and went on a whim with green chicken curry. Beef was the best, then curry, then scallops and pot stickers. The coconut gelato was by far the best part of the meal. Greatly enjoyed our first experience there!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA Business Lunch FavoriteThis restaurant is excellent for business lunches. It is very Seattle, the food is outstanding and the service friendly.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI made a reservation for 6I made a reservation for 6 people for a busier lunch (as it was restaurant week) and our group was seated right on time, which was a great start to the lunch. The food and atmosphere were wonderful and our server was excellent as well.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was superb.This restaurant was superb. Drew, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and its preparation. The food was as good as could be.
This is a wonderful place for groups, dates and anyone else.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met the owner, very friendly,We met the owner, very friendly, good atmosphere, food was delicious, and got a lot of it.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fairly large groupWe had a fairly large group (6) but our waiter handle our table with efficiency and good humor. Since this was a group of seniors and we were eating early, the restaurant wasn't too full, but we had a few rather demanding people in our party and he was very polite and attentive to their wishes. The only downside to the dinner was that this took place during "restaurant week" which offers special pricing for a 3 course dinner. I felt that the entrees offered were somewhat uninspired considering Wild Gingers reputation for innovation. But overall it was a good value and we had a very enjoyable dinner.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite stop when in SeattleThis was probably my fourth visit, even though I'm a "tourist" in Seattle. Must say, I thought the appetizers were better than the entrees this time; the black pepper scallops were plentiful, but a bit chewy and smaller than I expected. The potstickers, however, were to die for!
Great drinks too--nice suggestions from the waiter. There were 4 of us, and he was very patient waiting to take our order, because we were blabbing so much!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Ginger is one of my favoriteWild Ginger is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always excellent. This time, the sommelier also helped us pick out a great bottle of wine. The service was prompt and cheerful, and we had a great dinner, with plenty of time to get over to the theater and get settled in our seats4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Ginger never disappoints!Wild Ginger never disappoints! The food is fresh, innovative and inviting. The menu has such great variety that anyone, including vegetarians and vegans, can find delicious, reasonably priced cuisine. They have gluten-free options, and they offer different types of rice (I prefer brown). Our server was wonderful and made spectacular recommendations, so we ended up splitting several dishes and got perfect portion sizes - wild boar appetizer (tender, seared perfectly, hint of actual boar and not covered with sauce), duck - beautiful , baby bok choy and an incredible Thai mussel dish that we couldn't let go of (we were sitting by the window or I would have licked the bowl). Very conveniently located. I will go back again and again.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food and service!!Always great food and service!! I don't know why we don't go back more often!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI was not disappointed!The food was amazing. I had read recommendations about their signature dishes: the duck and the beef. My son and I love duck so we usually order it in restaurants that have it, and I was prepared to be disappointed. It only took one small bite when our dishes arrived to understand why everyone recommended it. The food was also very good value for the money.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food!!We Love Wild Ginger. There food is absolutely AMAZING! The eggplant tofu with Jasmine rice,Green beans, and they had an appetizer asparagus dish that was delicious! It's a must try! Yummy Mango Mojito too! Will be back many times!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and Energetic, theDelicious and Energetic, the restaurant is located in the heart of the business district. It sports a clean stylish décor with booths and tables. The wine list is excellent, with some outstanding selections available by the glass. Service was prompt and attentive, friendly.
The fusion Asian food is beautiful and delicious. I like that you can choose portion size and sample a larger part of the menu if you would like. An you should. The food here is truly worthy of the restaurants excellent reputation. Don't miss it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous duck dish was recommendedFabulous duck dish was recommended personally by the owner! wow!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fantastic experienceWe had a fantastic experience during our first visit to Wild Ginger! Our server was friendly, fun and professional. She made the event special and exciting. The potstickers were the best I've had in my entire life. I would come back just for those. The decor was elegant, chic, modern and energetic - which is hard to pull off. All the food was flavorful, not over salted (as many American-Asian restaurants can be) and overall it was a fantastic dining experience. We can't believe we hadn't been to Wild Ginger after living in Seattle for 14 years, but we will definitely be back soon!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but GoodWe like Wild Ginger. The reason we don't go more often is because we can rarely find street parking and $11 to use the garage at Triple Door really adds to the tab. This time we went because friends were in town visiting. We got there a little early, and within 15 minutes were seated. This time we had a booth and because of the tall backs the 5 of us felt like we could have a private conversation-- which was wonderful. Although it's family style dining, when you're with a 14 year old boy who loves Pad Thai, and a guy wild about the duck- we all ended up more ordering our own thing. The only mess up of the evening: we ordered appetizer scallops first and were instead brought the $30 dinner scallops with our meal.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperstar RestaurantI used to frequent Wild Ginger years ago when they were in their original smaller location on Western. Through all their success and expansion Wild Ginger remains a Seattle superstar restaurant. Great food and service.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is a place that everyoneIt is a place that everyone I take loves. The fragrant duck is to die for!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe seem to go to Wild GingerWe seem to go to Wild Ginger every time we're in Seattle and we're always glad we did. After 20 years they still have every dish perfected, not a wrong note anywhere. We had the chicken pot stickers (outstanding!!!), the salmon in coconut curry sauce, wrapped in a banana leaf, steamed & grilled (sorry, forget the name but to die for!!!), the prawn satay, the duck (OMG!!! so tender! Skin so crispy!) and the sea bass (with fresh herbs and crushed peanuts - perfection!!!)and honestly, everything was absolutely delicious. This was the highlight meal of our 3 day visit - just can't recommend it highly enough.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Ginger Still Delivers QualityWe went to Wild Ginger before the Seattle Symphony, and it was a very busy Saturday night. The food was fantastic! We ordered the Seven Flavor Beef, Lamb Zedang, Roasted Beans and my wife ordered a tofu curry (don't recall which). The meals are served on plates and it's normal to eat family style.
The ambiance was good. On this particular night, it was packed with people mostly going to the Symphony or another downtown event. Although there are some rather secluded and very romantic tables in the restaurant, I didn't note on the reservation to request one, and we ended up at a fine table, but it was a table for four in the center of the room. So, I advise you request a small table in your reservation for a more romantic experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great!!best dining experience in seattle in several years. servers info and fitting portion size to us was great.outstanding food.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness meeting perfect!If you are looking for a great place for a business lunch downtown this is the spot. The energy is great, the food very good, the service is fast and they leave you alone to chat.
Get a spot at a window for extra fun people watching.
the drouin agency3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Ginger Fragrant Duck ++Everything was great. Wandering Sage soup (hot & savory, spice or not); tried the salmon sate for the first time and found it delicious, as was the wild mountain lamb sate. Shared Wild Ginger Fragrant Duck - succulent, spiced with cinnamon and star anise, served with steamed buns,Sichuan peppercorn salt and sweet plum sauce. For dessert, ginger and mango ice cream.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, worked with usGreat place, worked with us on a table. Food came out quickly and tasted delicious. Highly recommend the Hanoi Tuna.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWild Ginger certainly livesWild Ginger certainly lives up to its reputation and provides a nice Asian vibe without going overboard. The food was somewhere between Thai and Chinese and exemplifies fusion of Eastern food at its best. The server was attentive and changed out silverware as we went through the courses. Try the coconut gelato which was very refreshing with a dusting of finely ground toasted coconut over the top. It’s a nice compliment to a cup of Starbucks coffee.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFAvority in SeattleI love this restaurant so much, I went twice during a recent trip to Seattle. The food is incredibly good, the setting lovely and the service is warm, friendly and efficient. Those qualities plus its convenient location make it my favority go-to in downtown Sesttle.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food. Ambiance variableWe ate here 2 times thus week. Both times the food was excellent. Service and ambiance were fantastic the first time, but this second visit we were seated at a table in an out of the way area with service still good but not as attentive. Although a large table was seated in the same area we felt isolated from the main dining. It basically felt like overflow seating.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's been my favorite restaurantIt's been my favorite restaurant for dining, now it will be for business lunch.
Great job!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA must for your "Bucket List"Cannot miss with this choice. Outstanding staff and consistently excellent experience, every time.
