Wild Ginger - Bellevue Ratings and Reviews
Food overpriced. The seven flavor beef was extremely salty and overpowered any other flavors. Skip the curry-- much better curries offered in the neighborhood for a much better price. The ahi tuna dish was tasty and had the best flavor of the night. We ordered nine dishes for our party and left feeling like we paid way too much for too little flavor.
The gas in the kitchen went out while we were there so they couldn't cook anything hot. We were able to eat 2 appetizers and the waiter was really really nice about it. I felt bad for the customers and people who worked there as they were losing out on tips. Our group still left him a tip even after the appetizers were free. It was a bummer because I had my heart set on Seven Flavor Beef. :(
Looked forward to the new location, as always the food was very pricey but very tasty. The new setup is great if you have 4/6 people and get a booth, but if you have 2 people, you'll find yourself in the middle of the restaurant sitting next to another 2 top within arm's reach.
100$ for 3 dishes, one beer and 3 club sodas (Each charged 2$, no refills, and comp'ed later) makes this a hard sell within the downtown bellevue area given so many other choices around.
All in all a very tasty meal with price and atmosphere a challenge for us to go back.
Went here for our anniversary dinner and it definitely is not as good as the Seattle location. The duck and scallops were amazing. We had to send the sea bass back, it tasted too fishy, like old fish. Also our dinner didn't come out all together, we had asked for the duck to be the appetizer, which was fine, it came out first. After that everything came in 5-10 minute intervals which made it difficult because we couldn't enjoy the food all at once. The location is also very small, and next to the parking garage, its covered by curtains, but kind of kills the ambiance. I would not come here again, I would return to the Seattle location though. Our server was amazing!
Despite having a reaervation and asking for a quiet table, hostess seated us in the middle of the room with no privacy for our business meeting. Chicken dish came to the table cold and undercooked. Perpper beef was good. Wine was bery expensive $19/glass. Will not be back anytime soon.
If you liked the prior/other locations of Wild Ginger (Bravern/downtown Seattle), you may not enjoy the new location as much. Several menu items are no longer available (prawn and vegetable satays, etc) - entrees are very minimal in size for the price (especially the sea bass).
We were celebrating family visiting from far away, and overall everything was not what they recalled from years ago. Service was o.k., but some food items were taken away before we were done (ugh), and overall I was disappointed in the meal. We shared multiple appetizers and entrees, but nothing I would highly recommend. My daughter who has been coming to Wild Ginger since she was 3 years old was wishing we had tried somewhere else. Every item she asked about was not available. Kind of a bummer for what was supposed to be a special occasion?!
Food was great, and the manager came around checking on the tables which was nice, but our waiter seemed too busy and didn't check on us as much as we needed. The place was so noisy and small, the seating was tight. Maybe some people like "small and energetic", but it was too crowded and too noisy for us. Even with great food, we could hardly hear each other, so we won't be back.
The food was amazing and our waiter was wonderful. Sadly the group of "ladies" and I use that term loosely, that were sitting in the booth behind us were extremely loud and talking about disgusting and inappropriate things throughout our entire meal. If it wouldn't have embarrassed my husband I would have gotten up and said something to them. We were there to cap off an amazing 40th Birthday for him, but unfortunately they kind of ruined it. We will gladly try Wild Ginger again though.
used to be great but now at new location they lost their special something -- yes the smaller menu has all the same favorites -- but small tables, hard uncomfortable chairs - no space for food at the table we had to actually box early and put under our feet. Wait staff un-attentive late on drinks, not filling water -- needing to look hard to find them -- you lost it WG!! You were great before I wont be back even for your most delicious food - #gottenworse
The best dishes here are the potstickers and the fragrant duck. Keeps us coming back. The other dishes we always end up thinking we can do better at some of the great authentic ethnic places in the area. Service is always nice. The new location was a bit circuitous to get to from the garage.
I read quite a few reviews recently about quality of the food and I almost changed my reservation due to the number of low-star ratings. I am very glad I did not. I visited with a group of 6 recently and had a wonderful dinner. The food was absolutely tasty, full of flavor, and presented wonderfully. The service was great throughout the experience, including asking to move tables due to my wife being pregnant and not totally comfortable in a booth.
As mentioned, the food was amazing. We had the 7 spice beef (a must have), sea bass, green beans, pad thai, and scallops. One in our group has celiac, and we were so thankful for the amount of gluten free options. Even better, several of their dishes can be made gluten free if you ask. Every dish was incredibly flavorful.
I would say that the only less than desirable experience I had was the noise of the restaurant, but it was a Friday night in Bellevue. We were able to converse and easily hear each other speak. It truly was not a major factor.
Will always love this chain. Lost some of the warmth with the move. Space is really loud and couldn't really hear my fellow dinners was meeting for dinner. This won't stop me from coming back again and again because it's a great place. Just slightly dropped in the rotation.
Wild Ginger is one of my favorite restaurants. I had not been to the new Bellevue location but I have been to the other locations. It was very busy, however our service was spot on!
Our favorite dishes of the evening were the siam sea bass lettuce cups
and the pad thai!
My girlfriends and I met there for dinner and were seated right away in a nice large booth.
The food selection was good, although many of the dishes are quite pricey and don’t come with any sides. However our meals were all quite good and the service was excellent
As other’s have noted the service is subpar. Put a few more servers on the floor and this would be great. As it was we were left unattended for nearly 20 minutes before water even arrived. Once we were eating shared plates, the dishes were arriving too quickly.
