We have been traveling Lake Michigan for two weeks so we were looking for a change of pace. No offense to all of the popular cuisines. This is the place. Of course it’s the high season so it’s busy. Reservations are a must now. Wonderful...More

Our meal started with delicious crab dip, and we ordered traditional entrees: Thai curry and Kung Pao. Both were excellent! Portion sizes and amounts of meat were impressive. The curry was nicely seasoned and spicy. Kung Pao could have been saucier and spicier but very...More

If you want sushi This Is The Place To Go. Cocktails are awesome Services fast. The food in general is very good quality but smaller portions. Little on the pricey side but worth it. Definitely great for a date night. It can get very busy...More

Seldom do we go somewhere where each course is great. This was one of those rare occurrences. My wife’s dumplings were delicious, well charred and tasty. My spicy ahi tuna roll was excellent. Her wakame salad was a large portion, and my Thai Caesar the...More

The food presentation at Red Ginger enhances its aesthetic appeal, as well as expert preparation. A varied selection of appetizers and entrees. Outstanding service by Teri, and wonderful table for conversation in the glass walled room near the river. Our best meal in Traverse City!

Red Ginger is a level ahead of most restaurants in Traverse City. It has excellent food, a unique menu, excellent service, and 'dress-up" atmosphere. An excellent date or special event space - or just a great place to eat.

No, but they have "small plates" that would be appropriate for children. Basically they're just smaller versions of the other dishes. No hot dogs or PB&J however.
