 (Seattle)·Dined 3 days ago

The food was basically average. I expected better. The "7 Flavor Beef" left my dinner partner and I with a "WOW", but nothing else did. The ambience of the restaurant was also quite lacking. There is NO view of anything. It's not what I would have expected and certainly not equivalent to the Wild Ginger in downtown Seattle. Also one disturbing incident, an appetizer was delivered to my table. After a number of minutes a waiter came and asked if it was mine, I replied I didn't know (it didn't look like what I ordered) and he took it and gave it to the table behind me. I had actually touched some of the food on the dish that was going to fall off and I was a bit bothered by the fact that he didn't take it back to the kitchen for disposal. Overall, the dinner came to $100 for two and was ok but I don't think we'll be returning to that location again.

The new location is much better and the food and service were great. Happy Hour menu has very good selection of drinks and small bites. Our server Ray was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Food came quickly; we had plenty of time to eat before our movie.

6 people for dinner. 6 entries ordered and one was so late that the other 5 were done eating. This was after letting our server know that we were missing a dish. And it is weird because they brought the first 5 dishes out at different times. There was probably 10 mins between dish 1 and dish 5 so we didn’t know when to speak up. Then the salmon dish finally arrived and the server said it was comped so that was fine. But then the dish was inedible. The manager happened to come by and ask how we were doing. We explained and then he tried to explain to us that we didn’t understand how the dish was supposed to taste. Thanks. There were no other complaints or issues with the other meals but overall we were left with a bad taste. If I am in the mood to pay for small portions of overpriced food I will surely come back.

My husband and I had a date there on Valentine's Day and found it delightful. The waiter was excellent and the food delicious, as always. We prefer the ambience of the Bellevue Wild Ginger to the Seattle one.

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!

Service and ambiance was good, but the quality of food was low. The soup was not fresh, so it had unpleasant smell, and the pad thai noodle was not fully cooked. You would be able to find a better place for the food with much cheaper price.

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

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.

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
