** Wild Ginger - Downtown

The food at Wild Ginger spans the Pacific Rim from China to Indonesia. We pride ourselves on offering traditional dishes from these distinctive regions and insist on house-made ingredients. Chefs make spicy chili sambals, fresh coconut milk, delicate egg noodles, and our pungent oyster sauce all from scratch. To achieve the sublime flavors of the East, there is no substitute for the time-honored customs of these rich and ancient cultures.

    We were immediately seated at our table, even though we were a little early. David made sure that our food and drinks were brought out in a timely way - letting us enjoy the space and the food. My Sea Bass was one of the best dinners I have had this year - perfectly cooked, lots of interesting and spicy flavors and a very healthy portion. We have eaten at Wild Ginger over 30 times and this experience seemed to be even better than the last time.

    Wild Ginger NEVER disappoints. I absolutely love this food. They have been a constant in Seattle for years and years. The perfect Asian fusion. The inside temperature is a little cool so wear a sweater and be prepared for some challenged and drugged out people on 3rd Avenue near the restaurant. I am so sorry that the Wild Ginger restaurant has to contend with all of this. Our City continues to let us down. I will send a note off to the Mayor. He needs to do better.

    Pre-pandemic Wild Ginger was a happening place, alive, vibrant and great food. Today is a tired restaurant with nothing to pull you in and the food is not bad but not what it was and nothing you cannot find anywhere else.

    Very fair price for food and experience. The environment was quiet elegance and waitstaff was efficient and prompt. We had potstickers which was a delicious appetizer then shared pad Thai and sea bass. Sea bass was heavily seasoned but good and pad Thai was okay. Enjoyed the seasonal sorbet/gelato and martinis as well

    We dine often before Symphony with a 5:30 or 5:45 reservation. This time our final dish didn’t arrive until 6:55…. Not the leisurely dining we’re accustomed to. AppArently there was a private party with 100 people that impacted the kitchen, but it must be known that many of your diners have the same time restraints. Our third dish arrived 10 minutes after the first two. Not the experience we’re accustomed to

    We got the bill and it was far higher than expected. Two meals and two ice teas = $90. We were asked what kind of rice we preferred, which gives the impression it is complimentary but nope it was $5. If you offer it you should mention it costs money. The ice teas - $4.50 each. Again this is a total overcharging. It’s tea and water! Come on a beer is almost the same price. So those of us who choose not to drink get billed a huge amount for upgraded water. Seriously, these together are almost an additional $20

    Food was great; prices reasonable, atmosphere was great. Service was so-so. I ordered Phad Thai w/shrimp. I received Phad Thai w/chicken. I pointed it out to the waitress and she offered to re-do the order, but I did not want to get behind my dinning companions. One of my companions ordered a coke w/o ice; received it with ice; server brought her a correct one.

    Wild Ginger has an appealing menu, promising great ingredients and great flavors. Unfortunately, the kitchen lets both down. We had the sense of orders being prepared well ahead and then rushed to the table rather than cooked and paced properly. Chewy cold wagyu beef satay, dumplings with a thick doughy shell and little filling, and a small piece of sea bass ($38) that was overcooked are examples - though the flavor profile of all was great. At the price point charged the kitchen should treat the ingredients, flavors, and customers with the respect they deserve.

    We were on vacation visiting from Daytona Beach. I used to live in Seattle, so I was showing my husband around all my favorite familiar places to see and eat. Wild Ginger was one of my favorites and it didn’t disappoint. It was still the elegant delicious Asian food I remembered. Our waiter was attentive and fun. He asked about us and was interested in our dining experience. It was a great experience.
