The food was excellent and the service was excellent. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but the quality and value is value is very, very good. We've had a reunion with two of my relatives for the last 3 years and I highly recommend Ginger 108.

The food was very good, but the wait time from ordering drinks or dinner took a very, very long time. Waitress was excellent, just should have visited the table more. Lack of attentiveness. hostess was cold and not very friendly.

The problem I have always found with this restaurant is that the service is either very slow, or untrained. They also need to know what alchol they serve, and I mean the names of the brands.

They also, on a Thursday night, ran out of scallops and coffee. There are grocery stores in the same town and they could have run out for coffee. No excuse for that one.

The food was good. Unusual combinations and a true local crowd. That should be corrected w/ advertising and word of mouth.

Food was very good, but not outstanding - portions OK. The Miso soup was excellent. We came at an early time on a Saturday night and still felt rushed - several courses at the same time.
Sushi was very good, but again, not outstanding. Also felt prices were too high.

Ginger 108 never fails in serving fresh, tasty food. The sushi is always fresh and yummy. The shrimp sliders are delish. Highly recommend.

Far exceeded expectations. Very comparable to Chef and Farmer regarding quality food and ambiance.

This is not our first time eating at Ginger 108. In the past, the menu has been more varied and extensive. This time, it was limited...specifically the small plates. There were no specials that night and there was a large group (NC Governors) that took up the restaurant side. We were surprised to be seated in the bar area with low upholstered chairs around a coffee table. Very difficult to eat dinner from that position (having a drink there is fine). Sadly, Open Table does not share the seating adjustments being made for a large group.

The service was great! No complaints there. However, we ordered a bottle of wine that was no longer available. Why is it on the drink menu?

We were entertaining a Romanian classical pianist and his Russian wife. Also a younger couple who played classical flute and clarinet. We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious.

The food was good but over priced. Sushi was no better than other places yet twice the price. The restaurant was too loud and the waiter must have been new. He did not know the ingredients of the dishes, could not describe them, demonstrated an overall lack of understanding of the menu. He also did not know about the bar and over charged us on a drink due to his confusion. The issue was quickly fixed. Overall we would not return because the food was over priced. The tuna tartare was good and priced right.
