Cafe Ginger - Uptown
Lunch is a busy and rather noisy time, but we were seated immediately even though we were a bit early for our reservation. After 1 PM the noise level calmed down. The flower tea was good to share and visually appealing with its glass carafe kept warm on a tea light. We especially enjoyed the BBQ eel on rice. Wait staff was so accommodating and allowed one in our party to exchange the soup in the lunch combo for an extra spring roll. Try the spicy shrimp and eggplant entrée! A generous serving of green tea ice cream was plenty to share and not too sweet. The décor is upscale for a Chinese/Asian restaurant, but fun.
The service was too rushed. We were not even half finished our appetizers when our entrees came. It was not crowded so this was annoying.
Great service and delicious food. Always a pleasant dining experience at Cafe Ginger!
Awful service. Nobody pays attention to you and your order.
I love everything about this restaurant - great food, excellent service by the manager and staff, elegant ambiance. In addition, their outdoor sitting area is awesome! And I also liked their mochi ice cream. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food and service are always great
Great place. Food was good. Service was a bit too slow and she got the ordered wrong twice.
Always good and dependable. I actually prefer the other Café Ginger on West Grey as it seems a bit less pretentious and you can self park (versus valet for a fee).
This place is very popular so the noise level at lunch was pretty loud. The service was prompt, attentive and kind without hovering. The soup was hot and delicious and I enjoyed that. The hot green tea was good and the serving staff circle with refills which was great. The only thing I would change was that my lunch was not hot enough for me when it was received. I did not send it back this time because I was pressed for time, so that's on me, but next time I would ask for it to be reheated or replaced. Otherwise I enjoyed the restaurant as did my guest.
Food and service were great!
This was our first time dining at Cafe Ginger and it won’t be our last. The food was very good and the attention to detail was great. They truly care about making their customer happy. The restaurant was very inviting and very clean!
Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!! I highly recommend it!!!
We were shocked to find out that the waitress was not aware of which plates had MSG and we were shocked that they used MSG in many of their food choices. They seemed to be very disorganized as our table was not ready so they put us in the private room which was nice and quiet. It just seemed that they had some very inexperienced individuals who were not organized.
We enjoyed our evening once it got going. The food was very good but we had to change a few because of the MSG.
We assumed that Chinese resturants had limited their use of MSG as so many people have bad reactions to it.
We have been there before and did not have the same problem.
Why not print MSG next to the menu items. That would solve a problem for you and the diner.
Food was bland compared to other Asian restaurants and pricey for portion. Our lettuce wraps were the best item.
The single malt is 1.5 times more expensive than any other restaurant in town. The waiters are clueless about their dishes. And the water is not refilled
While Nygiri and Sashimi were excellent, the calamari was dismal and shrimp tempura tasted as if it was cooked in concrete. Duck appetizer was above average.
When they brought our food to the table it was very nice looking however everything was cold. Even the main course was cold when served.
When people call for directions you need to say next door to Caracal. We drove all over the neighborhood before we finally found your location. You won't loose any business to Caracal. They serve a different clientele.
We had a family get together for 7 adults and 3 children. The staff gave us a private room we didn’t even request and went above and beyond with great service. Such a wonderful evening.
This was me and my wife's time to Cafe Ginger. We came for a special date night and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and the service was great as well. Our server was very friendly and professional. We will definitely be back!!
Got order wrong. Service not very good.
Great food and good service. Fairly quiet restaurant
All food was over cooked and dry. We eat out all the time but don’t believe this is a do again.
Have been several times and always great food with attentive friendly staff and service,
The soft shell crabs are always delicious. Never disappoint!
