I brought a colleague to dinner here who was from out of town. We were seated promptly and then reluctantly greeted by our waiter, who kept disappearing. He finally came and took our drink and food order at the same time. Within 10 minutes, our drinks arrived. And then almost immediately, so did all of our items for dinner. These were delivered by some random person. The soup which we had wanted to start our meal with came last, with the potstickers that were for our appetizer. I had not planned on drinking my martini with my entrée, but that is what happened. Zero timing at all, which pretty much ruined our meal.

I’ve been here many times and the quality is consistent. I usually check the specials as I have had the most popular items over and over again. Service was frustratingly slow during our last visit. Pretheater rush and maybe a few too few servers.

Have enjoyed this restaurant for years, but this visit was disappointing. The menu has shrunk to one sheet. Vegetarian options have shrunk to two very similar dishes. Out of a number of selections from the dinner menu at 5:30 pm. A busy night might account for the subpar service. So based on this visit I would not recommend them beyond the location.

Everything was good. Service - great, drinks - good, food - good. I was a little disappointed with the food. It wasn't full of flavor like before. I have eaten at Wild Ginger for many years. All the food used to explode with flavor. We had the seven flavor beef and it was ok but not great. Don't get me wrong I will be back, but hope it's not just ok next time.

The food was up to their usual standard but we were really disappointed in our service last night. I don't know if we saw our waitress once after our meal arrived, which took a really long time. Credit to the staff member (not wait staff, he was wearing a light shirt and tie, not the all black of the wait staff) to stepped up when he saw our credit cards on the table and got us our check.

We have always liked the wild ginger, good food and a good value for Seattle, however this visit we both were disappointed. The duck was too fatty (couldn't finish it) and the Mongolian noodles were bland (no flavor and no spice); nor was i asked how spicy i wanted it. Our drinks took forever to get, and our waiter stopped by and told us be was waiting for the bartender (tacky)

The only glitch was our appetizer didn't arrive until almost we're half-way through our meal. Apparently, someone else took it so they had to make another one. Other than that, I've always enjoyed the food and our server was great!

The design of the restaurant is very clean and contemporary. We started with two cocktails; both were outstanding. We had potstickers as an appetizer. They were pretty good. We had the Mongolian noodles and the Thai eggplant for entrees, and they were both delicious. Our server was excellent. She even helped us figure out how to take the bus to the space needle the next day.

I dined at Wild Ginger with my 2 daughters, we were attending an event at Benaroya Hall. My oldest daughter is very allergic to tree nuts and peanuts, so we are careful in restaurants that might have nuts in their food. She informed our waiter of her allergy, and he was so considerate! He noted it in the order, and even came back to check on us after the food was served. Honestly I have never experienced this, it was amazing. And the food was delicious!

I have eaten at Wild Ginger numerous times.... both on my own and with friends and it has been incredible for both food and service every time!

A while back, I had a dish that I thought had a bit more salt than the last time I had it, I had almost finished the dish (not bad enough not to eat) and the staff thanked me for my comment and took it off the check (not expected or needed)!

I have a friend who is gluten intolerant (the real kind, not just because of "fashion") and the menu is incredible!

Our server was incredibly helpful. She inquired as soon as we were seated if we were attending an event across the street at Beneroya Hall after dinner. We were -- and so she made sure that our food was served promptly and that we were able to finish in enough time to make it through the security checkpoints to see and hear Vice President Joe Biden speaking. She also arranged to have a few more items added to some plates that we wanted to share four-ways. Overall, it was a great experience -- except that the noise level made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation with our guests. Might some baffles be added to the ceilings to help soften the acute noise level?

We tried to enjoy the Wild Ginger with a couple little ones. Oddly the adults food and drinks came first, leaving the child with nothing for some time.
Food was just mediocre, and quite expensive. Probably not inclined to return.

I have had a number of spectacular meals at Wild Ginger in the distant past. I am not sure when they decided to emulate PF Changs, but this was fast food, at best. We ordered mongolian noodles, 7 spice beef, and green beans. While flavors were ok, the food had obviously been cooked well in advance. It was served just a touch above room temperature. And literally within 5 minutes of ordering. Fast food. Not what I expected from what used to be a consistently yummy place.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on November 29, 2017

Went to Wild Ginger for a business dinner, 6 people. Although we were seated quickly, it took an eternity to get drinks and appetizers. When the waitress finally came to take our food order she apologized that she had been busy with the people headed to Benaroya for a show.
I understand the busy rush, but it would have helped if she had told us that up front.
It also would have been appreciated if the waitress hadn't continually called us "honey" and "dear".
Once the place cleared out, we had great service.
Despite the service, the food was very good. Nicely varied menu and we enjoyed it a lot.
