Wild Ginger Seattle Ratings and Reviews
There was a band playing downstairs/next door which we could hear in the restaurant and which caused a thumping while we were trying to enjoy our meal. Not the restaurant’s fault of course but something to consider if you are trying to have a romantic dinner date.
I keep coming back to Wild Ginger. I used to visit it when it was below the Market. They've been in the new space on 3rd for a very long time now. It is a beautiful space and great for business lunches and the bar is energetic, with a talented staff. The service is always great, although the hostess could be a little warmer, I feel.
Overall it's a great place, however I do feel the food is lacking compared to how it used to be. Not sure why. Just not as special as it once tasted. Could be I'm used to it, but I don't think so. I don't have that problem with other restaurants. There is better Asian food in Seattle for sure. But I will keep coming back to Wild Ginger. It's location makes it a great spot to stop in before the symphony or a show at the art museum.
Being from out of town. I relied heavily on Open Table to book my birthday dinner. I chose this restaurant due to the varied menu option for my Vegan friends. The food was great and the restaurant was beautiful. What made my birthday dinner unpleasant was our server Gina. She was very rude and abrupt even on her first encounter with us. Throughout our service she made it seem like we had to cater to her needs instead of her helping us out. When asking for clarification about certain things, she was very short and rude in her response. This dining experience would’ve been more enjoyable if our server was maybe in a better mood.
I have been going to Wild Ginger for over 20 years (when it was on Western Ave.) and have never had a bad meal until yesterday. We ordered the Nam Rolls which tasted like cardboard. The sashimi spicy tuna had no flavor despite the word "spicy" in the name. The fragrant duck was excellent as usual but overall, I had to make excuses for a bad meal to an out-of-town guest to whom I had raved about this restaurant. Everybody has a bad day, but this meal was not even close to acceptable. Won't be going back here soon.
I love Wild Ginger, but it didn't seem up to par this last time. They weren't that busy, but the service was a little off the mark, not as professional as usual. We love most of the food, but after trying the duck twice now, I won't order it again. They can't get it right. The skin is not crisp enough while being too fatty and the meat is overcooked and very hard to chew. The lettuce cups are always a favorite as well as the black pepper scallops. They always get us in on time and out in plenty of time for us to get across the street to Benaroya Hall for a concert. We'll be back and hopefully the service will be a bit better.
We had a wonderful late Saturday lunch. Quiet. Impeccable service. Wild Ginger was perfect for a post-movie outing for friends who rarely get time to talk. Our server was outstanding. Food and drinks were too.
And we were grateful to have the restaurant open on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
My wife and I arrived early, but by the time we left, the restaurant was full. We had the lobster/prawn dumpling soup which we both enjoyed. My wife had the tofu eggplant dish and I had chicken and vegetables. We were both satisfied with our meal. We expected good food and we weren't disappointed. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience. We'll be back.
A quite satisfactory Christmas gift experience following our visit to the Andrew Wyeth SAM exhibit, marred only by after arriving fifteen minuets ahead our 6:15pm.reservations, to having to wait until 6:40pm. to be finally seated at the large group roundtable with several available empty seating spots (we would have been quite happy to have shared such much earlier)!
The food, wine, and service was delicious and expeditious, if a bit on the expensive side.
Knowing this, we will still visit again on special celebratory occasions.
Birthday dinner. Food excellent. Service good but not great. We were told while sitting at the bar waiting for a table even though we had a reservation to mention birthday celebration for a special dessert... we did mention to waiter who acknowledged but no birthday dessert appeared and then we were not even asked if we wanted dessert. But would go back again for food.
Food was very mediocre- the hole in the wall Thai place near my apartment has higher quality, more flavorful food for half the price. When my friend asked the server to help her decide between two dishes, he told her one of them was “kinda greasy.” Even if you think that why would you say that about something on your restaurant’s menu? Additionally a frantic server (not the person who took our order) came over a few seconds after we were served our appetizer to say “uh, your entrees are ready, what do you want me to do? You were just served your appetizers right?” Obviously we were still enjoying our appetizers and not quiet ready for the main course...? It was overall a very disorganized, unprofessional and expensive experience. There is SO much delicious food in Seattle, skip this place.
There was an error made on our meal with was corrected promptly. Food comes quickly, atmosphere is nice. Dishes I found bit lacking, mediocre. Frsh rolls 3/$9. All wrapper , light on fillings which made them quite chewy. Tofu eggplant dish was very good. But curry dish was bland. Maybe an off night for kitchen.
After being seated promptly at reservation time at a great 2-top next to the window, service was timed nicely. There was no rush to order or to leave once finished dining. The lobster dumplings were sublime. The only ding was that server removed the glass with my (delicious) mango Arnold Palmer from the table before I was finished drinking it, before we finished the meal. This restaurant is in a perfect location for downtown dining, across from Benaroya Hall and close to the transit tunnel and parking lots.
