Red ginger is one of my favorite restaurants! I’ve been there numerous times and I have always had great customer service and the food is amazing. I really wish they would put the “dancing turtle” sushi roll on their menu it is one of the best sushi rolls I’ve ever had. 11/10 I’d recommend to anyone!

My wife and I were there celebrating Valentines Day. Service was excellent. Ordered sushi, not as good as before. Overall, good experience.

We were seated in the dining area, but closer to the entrance. Happy hour was going at the bar near the front entrance and it was quite noisy. The food was good but not exceptional, although we had excellent service from the wait staff. The Sushi was supposed to be one of their specialties, but we found it mediocre compared to other Sushi that we have had. Their Seafood Pad Thai was good but a little under-spiced. All the restaurant staff were pleasant and accommodating.

The food was absolutely amazing! The service was quick even though we were there on a Friday night at 7PM. My only complaint is that the mojito I I got wasn’t all that great but that might just be my opinion so still 5 stars

We were seated immediately upon arrival, and greeted by our server fairly quickly. The food was all delicious and exceeded the expectations of my parents. My only complaint was that in the area we were seated the lighting was too low, making it hard to read the menu.

As usual, very good food and excellent service. The second offered seating was ideal, being seated in the rear dining room. From that location, the noise from the bar area was somewhat muted.

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.

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.
