Wild Ginger McKenzie- South Lake Union
Had a great time! Food was amazing and the service was impeccable!
Outstanding experience at Wild Ginger. The restaurant was socially distanced, the food was amazing as always and our server, Brian, was so good! He was there when we needed him but didn't hover around. He was nice to talk to but gave us our space too. We will certainly be back!
If you have a hankering for Southeast Asian food (Malaysian/Vietnamese/Thai/Indonesian etc), this restaurant serves it in an upscale, elegant setting.
Easier to get a reservation than the downtown and Bellevue locations, and free parking in the evenings at the nearby Amazon building
Everything was excellent, it was a pleasure dining here. I found the food a little bit over spicy, but that is probably my taste.
The food was delicious... wait time was a little longer than desired but worth it. This restaurant will be on my "must visit" list any time I'm in the area
Always Great Food & Awesome Service, Ryder is a very good Man, mtg
This pretty downtown Asian-fusion restaurant has recently become one of my absolute favorites! From the beautiful decor to the superb cuisine, Wild Ginger McKenzie nails it! Upon arriving, we were quickly greeted and escorted through the beautiful bar area and into the trendy high-ceiling dining area. Our table was located along the tall street-side windows with a gorgeous city setting under the Seattle skyline. The ambiance was very modern yet somewhat casual--the perfect place to unwind after a days work at the office. To drink, I ordered The McKenzie. It was much like a Manhattan with an orange twist. Amazing! My date ordered the Cherry Blossom--also phenomenal! Our server, Rien, was helpful, attentive, and professional. He recommended the Seven Season beef, which was extremely delicious and perfect portion for two. The meat was perfectly cooked, flavorful, and greatly complimented our shrimp fried rice side. After a couple drinks and taking in the atmosphere over light dinner conversation, we called it a night. We didn't have to wait long to received our check, was asked "how everything was", and delighted with a warm invite to "please come again". It was a Class A experience that I definitely hope you too will enjoy!
Great food, service, parking is a bit of a challenge. Overall a great venue and value. Food is great.
Everything clicked. Pleasant outdoor seating. Welcoming and efficient service. Crisply presented menu. Enjoyable beverages. Delicious food.
We enjoyed dinner at the patio. The food was delicious, and the service excellent.
I’ve always been a huge fan of the 3rd avenue location so Wild Ginger sounded perfect to congratulate my friend on her pregnancy. Every single dish we ordered was awful. Seriously. My friends are not picky. We cut dinner short after several starters and went to 2120 to finish the evening. Super disappointing experience.
Great evening celebrating daughters graduation. Servive was super, food good as always, and they did they nice job ensuring all safe, really appreciate the effort. Thanks
Great birthday dinner - the service was great! Thank you Ryder!
We had a great server, which of course, enhanced the entire experience during COVID. I was happy to see Seven Flavor beef was still on the menu, and cocktails were delicious. Very happy, will come again.
Excellent safety precautions and we enjoyed the patio and felt safe. Amazing food and staff
Service, food, and safety was beyond superb! Best dining experience I’ve encountered with Covid-19 measures and safety first in mind.
Great evening - we live the food, service and ambience at Wild Ginger
Very good food. Thai food tastes authentic - no extra sugar, etc.
GREAT service and food!
WG is always a favorite; they have re imagined some of their dishes while in LockDown and they are even better. Especially the potstickers!
Fabulous as usual. Flavorful & Fresh! Wonderful service!
Super attentive server, amazing cocktails (I’m picky), and great food!
Quintessential Seattle dining experience! The 7 flavor beef and sea bass are a MUST.
The Ahi Tuna dish was very bland. The portions are small for the price. Probably will not return on a regular basis
I love this place! Wild Ginger always meets the same standard of excellence in food and service
Our first visit to a restaurant since COVID. We felt very safe and also as "normal" as you could expect. Food was outstanding. The specialty cocktails were truly unique and helped make the outing special. Service hit the sweet spot - very attentive without hovering.
so delicious! wonderful service! recommend the duck.
We had a great dinner at Wild Ginger. In the post/mid-covid world,
The staff was extremely friendly. The food and cocktails were delicious and thoughtfully prepared and presented. My friend and I had such a great time chatting and reconnecting post-shutdown that we lost track of time and stayed past intended closing (so sorry), but the staff was super kind and didn’t make us feel unwelcome as so many restaurants do.
Our server Chris(I think that was his name) was wonderful. Attentive but not overbearing and very personable! The food is fresh and extremely flavorful! We will continue to return to dine at Wild Ginger!
Food amazing as always, but felt really safe eating there given the precautions they’d put in place and the rearranged seating. Very well done
Wild Ginger is one of our favorites however this time the duck wasn't as good as it has been in the past. The skin was soggy when it should be crispy. The sauce on the tuna dish wasn't very good either (seems like they changed the recipe maybe) . The service was great though. The kids really enjoyed their fried rice and egg noodle dishes.
The food was good. I don't envy any restauranteur opening a restaurant using the state guidelines right now. Service was adequate but not anticipatory; slow but probably due to the challenge of reopening. I called earlier and spoke with the GM to get recommendations on ways we could make the evening special as I was proposing marriage. He wasn't very helpful, the staff seemed unaware, and he made no attempt to touch the table even though I cued the host. I understand that it was probably a logistically difficult evening. There was a well-dressed BLM person throwing marquis promotional restaurant signs and parking signs in the direction of patrons on the patio in a "black privileged" feigned outrage. Patrons put it back together once the unruly person departed. Of course, no police or management presence...so give thought to your safety in this area while dining, especially on the patio. Seattle is the "woke" wild wild west.
Oscar was a wonderful server. Your food is amazing and we were happy to be there on the first day of in person dining after COVID-19.
Excellent service. Delicious food and thoughtfully curated cocktails.
We appreciate being able to go back to one of our favorite restaurants although we had new been to this location.
Really great tastes and innovative
As always, the food was impeccable – inventive and delicious, and the service was exceptional. I love this place!
