Everything was great, but a couple aspects could be improved. There were a lot of small French fry pieces in our pommes frites. The flourless chocolate cake was a bit dry. Thank you for the great evening.

I have mixed feelings. I was thrilled with the service. Our waitress was awesome and super knowledgeable. Good drinks. However wasn’t blown away by the food. I ordered the bbq ribs and they came out just warm, there was maybe a spoonful of what was suppose to be Kimchi and my sweet potatoe fries tasted more burnt than anything. My husband ordered the duck and although it tasted great it was three very tiny slices. I will heatitste to go back just because I like more value for my money.

Had a birthday dinner with my daughter here after a week of fishing in Bristol Bay as we were preparing to fly out of town. Excellent server who allowed to take our time with drinks and nicely pace our dinner. We shared the lettuce wrap appetizer, which was excellent. I had a hearty cheeseburger for my entree, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Great martini and a very nice wine list.

Nice place, great service. Food was interesting and well prepared. Only knock on the food was that the sweet potato fries were grease- a surprising lack of excursion considering how well the rest of the food was prepared

Scallop Mac and Cheese is lacking in flavor. The scallops were done perfectly but sauce and cheese needed some flavor. Very high calorie meal, get something else.

My wife and I found it on a visit to Anchorage 2 days ago. It’s so great we’re back for Sunday brunch today as I write this, and it’s just as great. It’s the complete package- great food, great service, attractive decor and presentation, knowledgeable and friendly waiters! What a find! Its reason enough to return to Alaska!

My veggie burger was fantastic. The frittes a little soggy, but we ate them. Love the quietness, so perfect for having a conversation or business meal. Our server seemed a little un-informed though. When someone asked if Ginger referred to a person or the seasoning he said it was a chain (I don't think it is a chain restaurant.... at least when i google it I don't see any other location but Anchorage!) Then someone asked about the size of the portions and he seemed unsure about that too. Maybe he was new? Otherwise he did fine as far as taking our order, etc. All in all, a nice place to come for good food and conversation.

The food was good, but we were seated between two very loud tables while many others were open. It was very unfortunate, as it made our dinner much less enjoyable. I would recommend this restaurant for the food, but not the seating. I think on other occasions it`s probably a great restaurant, but our experience was not worth the price.

Ginger is one of our go-to restaurants for date night or an evening out with friends. Super yum food and a relaxing, romantic ambiance make for a fun night prior to a theatre event or just for dinner and drinks. Creative libations and a good wine menu make for delicious aperitifs prior to dinner.

The food was innovative, the flavors were delicious and everything tasted fresh. Meat was cooked perfectly. We order the gouda cheese risotto balls, I had the blackberry sauce ribs with the sweet potatoes and my partner had steak over mashed potatoes and fried asparagus. The only thing that was not good was the service. Our waitress was not very nice... I got confused with one menu item and she reacted annoyed...I felt very uncomfortable. I ordered a beer and she brought a different one. I asked her to change it and she did (she apologized). She was treating me and my partner very differently from the other people that were sitting around us. I asked her for a to go box for my leftovers, she never brought it. We didn't feel comfortable asking her again. She was clumsy and extremely serious, not welcoming at all. We left her a 15% tip, but she didn't deserve it.

Our 2 vegan entrees (vegan curry and tofu veggie teriyaki) and one vegan appetizer (spring roll with special-made sauce) and house salads were awesome! We come here specifically for vegan friendly food, although it is a bit oil-heavy. Staff was attentive and efficient! Will be back!

The greeter/hostess is pleasant and efficient. Server Jerod is attentive and helpful in selecting a wine choice. The wait staff assistant is outstanding in keeping water glasses filled and empty dishes removed from the table. The presentation of all the food is attractive and appealing complete with fresh garnish. This is fine dining done right.

Always outstanding! The waiter was extremely attentive and professional. The cocktails are the best in town. And the food is dependably superb. Loved our ribs and tofu (two separate entrees.) The one addition I might have liked would have been to have Happy Anniversary written somewhere on the dessert plate (jnstead of “Ginger”) but maybe those are premade. I will know next time to ask.
