Red Ginger is much larger than I imagined it to be. The food and service were both first class and the place seems more New Yorkish or west coastish than midwestern. The only negative I perceived was a lilliputian wine list. I would highly recommend this restaurant to both tourists and locals.

The food was stellar! I had the Vietnamese beef plate which was second to none. We started with the chilli boneless wings which were easily the best wings I've ever had. My wife got a couple different kinds of sushi which she enjoyed.

This is one of top favorite places to eat in Traverse City. In the years that I have been going there I have never had a bad or even mediocre meal. The food is excellent. Beautiful presentations. Fantastic services everytime!

Waitress was efficient but not very friendly. I always leave a 18-20% tip so a little personality and acting like she enjoys her job is what I expect. I hate spending all that money to feel like we were putting her out.

Being sat at the back patio enclosure during the winter was a bit chilly. If I had walked in off the street I wouldn't complain, but having had a reservation, the seating choice was rather disappointing. But it's restaurant, you come for the food, and it's always spot on.

My boyfriend and I were visiting Traverse City, and we found Red Ginger online. We absolutely loved our experience! The food was great, servers were nice and helpful, and the ambiance was perfect. We will definitely come back next time we’re in TC.

Very enjoyable experience as always. Was my wife's birthday and she suggested we go to Red Ginger of all the restaurants in Traverse City. Service from our waiter was spot on. You can tell the wait staff are well trained. We love the chicken Kung Pao. We were a bit disappointed that it was not spicy as before. Overall a very good experience.

The food here is absolutely divine. Service, too. I always need adjustments to the menu and they handled that without a problem. We sat in the enclosed porch, in the back, and it was very quiet. The other areas can be moderate to "energetic".

We’ve never been disappointed at Red Ginger. (It’s fairly noisy but we had a table in the corner which dampened the noise.) The food, from appetizers to dessert, was consistently wonderful. We ordered spring rolls, pork shank and sea bass, as well as salad and dessert. We come from a large city and Red Ginger can compete.

We’ve gone to RG for some years now! It’s our fav restaurant in the Traverse area! Wish there was one in GR. Had excellent service and the food was awesome! Need to schedule our next time to TC so we could dine there again.

Great experience just a little on the slow side with service. We have eaten there many times and even though all the tables were not full it seemed to take longer than it has before.

Wonderful food, wonderful wait staff. I have a peanut allergy and they cooked my food separately. My husband and myself were celebrating our three year anniversary and they had our table beautifully prepared, a card thanking us for celebrating with them (signed by the whole staff) and complimentary cake and ice cream to celebrate! I was truly impressed! Highly recommended!

Great cocktails, great service, well executed food. We ordered a bunch of small plates, sushi, cocktails and desert and our server kept them coming on a rolling basis, which must have been a pain but worked perfect for us. Total bill was about 75% of what we would have expected downstate. Our table was ready right when we arrived, couldn’t have worked out better, highly recommended.
