Blue Ginger has been one of my favorites of all time. I had my last butterfish and bitter chocolate cake. Where will we go for Valentine's, Mother's Day, holidays, and birthdays now??
Best of luck Ming Tsai!
Sadly, our final meal at Blue Ginger was disappointing. From the hostess pointedly ignoring my husband to acknowledge another person upon their arrival to finding the lobster entrée not as delectable as in the past, the evening left us disheartened we had selected Blue Ginger for a Grandparents Birthday celebratory dinner. While we wish Ming and Polly well with their new ventures, it appears the Blue Ginger we enjoyed so fondly over the years has moved on as well.
Fabulous as always, will REALLY miss this! Wish the scallops had been on the menu too, but everything was fabulous.
Wonderful restaurant with many memories shared here over the past 15+ years... so sad to see it close. A unique gem amidst much of the "same old" restaurants in the Boston area.
One of the chef's specials, the Garlic-Black Pepper Lobster, was one of the best meals that I have ever eaten. The lobster was cooked to perfection - the key, however, was the sauce. Robust, intensely favorable, with a pleasant amount of "kick".
My husband and I were dining with another couple for the last time before Blue Ginger closes. I have always been grateful for the attention to my anaphylactic food allergies. Ming Tsai was overseeing the kitchen that evening so I felt especially safe. Our server was gracious but it took exactly two and a half hours to get our dinner. I find this unacceptable! It ruined what was supposed to be a very special evening with close friends. We paid for our appetizers and the manager offered us our dinners for free. Despite this generous gesture, we were deeply disappointed.
Sad to see Blue Ginger closing. If you haven't eaten here, do so before June 3rd. You won't be disappointed. I want wish my buddy Ming all the success in his new chapter and journey. Thanks for the great meals my friend.
Loved the chance to have one more meal at Blue Ginger before it closes. The butterfish was amazing and my guest enjoyed the lamb rack, plus the shumei app. Ming came by our table which was a special treat. Thank you to him and the WONDERFUL front of the house staff for making this a memorable experience.
Sorry this gem is closing. We've always enjoyed it and will have to track down Ming Tsai's brilliance elsewhere
We will miss having Blue Ginger in Wellesley after it closes in June.
Since Blue Ginger will be closing very soon, my husband and I wanted to make sure that we made it back there. We had a wonderful meal and experience! We both started with drinks-- my husband had a sake and and I had the gimlet, which with the ginger made a classic cocktail even better. We had the calamari to start, which was excellent. We both had the lobster for our entree and it was outstanding. The lobster was perfectly cooked and the rice and sauce that came with it complimented it well. For dessert, we had the chocolate cake, which was the perfect end to a delicious evening. We will miss you, Blue Ginger!
It's sad that Blue Ginger will soon be closing. We've had many memorable meals there over the past 20 years. We ate there for the last time on Mother's Day and the food did not disappoint. The Miso-sake butterfish and New Zealand rack of lamb were our favorites. Ming was in the house and we thanked him for the memories.
Wonderful, inventive food. Very expensive but worth it if you like innovative cuisine. Too bad it's closing soon.
Knowing the restaurant is closing is quite apparent in the staffs attitude and attention.
Too bad for Ming to have his restaurants memory ruined in this last ditch effort
Everything was done so well. The food was terrific, the service was friendly and efficient, and the entire evening was exceptionally pleasant. It is sad that in just a few weeks the restaurant will be closed for good.
