Wild Ginger Seattle Ratings and Reviews
Food was nothing special and didn’t equate to the price tag. The wine list was subpar for an “award-winning wine list”, and the craft cocktails we have were disappointing. This place stays really busy so they must be doing something really well but I wasn’t impressed by our Seattle dining experience unfortunately.
Service was very slow to start. After ten minutes without being acknowledged, no water, no offer of a drink, I got up to find someone to wait on us. And it was before the restaurant filled up.
Given that beginning, I told the server our time constraints. However we got our bill after the time we needed to leave.
Food was delicious as always.
We ordered the chicken wings, princess prawns, lamb skewers, and wagyu beef. The lamb skewers and wagyu beef are not on their regular menu but it was by far the best I have ever tasted. The lamb skewers were juicy and soft. The wagyu beef was spicy and full of flavor. I didn’t think much of the wings but my wife really loved it.
Always aware of the clients evening commitments and courtesy is tops. Always go away feeling healthy and not "over fed". Quality vs quantity. Love the architecture of the restaurant with several smaller areas and the high ceiling does not exaggerate the noise level.
We ordered the bass lettuce cup as an appetizer, and sea bass and passion tofu as entries for the two of us. All three dishes were very tasty. I always get the sea bass entry, never disappoint. We wrap up the night w coffee and red velvet cheesecake. Delicious! Highly recommend Wild Ginger Seattle, especially if u r going to an eve show next door .
A Shadow of What Once Was
What a disappointment! I didn't discover Wild Ginger until 2006, when business began to bring me to Seattle several times a year. It immediately became a favorite for its extensive and varied menu and its great vibe. Having hyped it up to my spouse as a key element of a recent weekend trip, I was crestfallen. Most of the dishes I was looking forward to were removed from the menu when it shrank so dramatically a few years ago. Because every prior visit was so rewarding, I didn't think to look at current reviews. This experience taught me a lesson: Even the very best can fall; ALWAYS check the latest reviews.
We were truly disappointed in this return visit after a couple of years, coming from out of town (La Conner) for dinner prior to the symphony. We ordered two of the "favorites" - the scallops were OK but not exceptional, and the duck was dry and relatively tasteless. The noise level was over the top. Overall, an unpleasant and expensive experience for what we received.
The food was uneven. A couple of satays were delicious; one of the starters (a Nam spring roll) was bland and uninteresting. Entrees were fine; not amazing but certainly flavorful.
The service was uneven. Friendly enough, but also somewhat cold and inattentive at times. We received other people’s orders, had the wine menu taken away before we could order from it (an assumption on our server’s part), and went many minutes without seeing our server. When he was in our vicinity and we caught his eye he didn’t respond for quite a while.
We enjoyed ourselves, the setting was conducive to conversation, the food was mostly fine ... But after having heard how amazing Wild Ginger is I can’t say that’s my end impression.
Lunch for 6 people who drank water with 15% tip came to $144. They did have a few gluten free options that helped since one in our party has Celiac Disease. I had a chicken bone in my lunch, pointed it out to the server, she didn't really care. Food was tasty but expensive, probably will not go back, service was meh.
We were seated in what clearly was the shortcut for many of the wait staff. My wife was repeatedly bumped in the back, even after complaining and having the waiter ask his staff to not use the little space between her and the pillar. They finally scooted our table into the clear. The mussels were colder than the rest my dish and yet I was served several minutes before my date got her plated. Not the best dining experience.
Wild Ginger is not what it used to be, or maybe it was always average and now the Seattle restaurant scene has outgrown its chops. Anyway, it had been a while since I had been and it was extremely overpriced for what it was serving. Go to Monsoon and get better food at a better price with better service. If you’re going to a show at BH across the street, then this will suffice no doubt.
Great spot for a pre-concert dinner with long time friends. Server (Joe) was attentive without being intrusive, and he clearly knew and described menu items very well. Food was shared, family style ... came out as it was completed so we had an ongoing smorgasbord of asian inspired dishes. Drinks were good.
Late on reservation time. Slow on first service. Fast on bringing food before apps were done. Kind of strange service experience for a place like this.
Food was great. Didn’t get rice with curry without ordering on the side, which is per the menu.
So...kind of weird experience for the finer side of dining.
From the minute that we (5 friends going to the Benaroya for National Geographic Live!) arrived for an early dinner to the time we departed for our performance, we were coddled, pampered and given superb service of amazingly diversified food. From the Pepper Scallops (divine) to the Mongolian noodles (perfectly done with an amazing sauce. We had a bottle of Willamette Pinot Noir, reasonably priced, that perfectly suited the Asian dishes. Best of all, however, was the service; supportive but not intrusive. Thank you Wild Ginger, we will back again, again and again.
We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The server took a couple minutes to get to us, we could see that it was a busy night, even for a Monday. When she did serve us, she was on point, helpful but not obtrusive. We told her we needed to be at the show downstairs at 7:30, and she made it happen. The Kobe satay was delicious. The two skewers were prepared perfectly, and served fork tender, these are our new favorite. The noodles dish (something something fun) was great, with nice wide noodles, lots of sprouts, and flavorful all the way through. We had a blackberry ginger iced tea, and a mango Palmer, both drinks were alcohol-free and delicious, could have served as appetizers. Our food was brought to us tapas-style, so we were just finished with the Kobe skewers when the noodles arrived. Nice to enjoy each dish while still fresh from the grill rather than growing cold on our table. All in all, a great experience.
