Based on the great reviews, we chose this place for a family dinner with 2 children, 2 parents, 2 grandparents and a spry 94 year old. We walked in and received the stink eye from servers who were slightly older than the children in our party. We were taken to the farthest table in the back next to the rest... More

From the moment we got in there Ernest (the manager) took care of us. I can say that I love the food here, but Ernest truly enriches my experience every time I come. This review is honestly based more on him than anything and that's why I've taken the time to come on here. He deserves 6 stars because he... More

Definately the place to stop if you are in TC and are looking for sushi. We orderd a variety and every thing was excellent. It was really busy when we stopped in, but the service was still top notch. I will return

Second time to Red Ginger. They have great sushi and a very friendly staff. Both visits I sat at the bar for dinner. Great selection of wine, spirits and beer. I have a gluten sensitivity and Matt the bartender knew which sushi rolls to suggest or modify. I would definitely recommend.

The sushi/sashimi is excellent, limited menu options. Seating was good, service was good, typical open air table type restaurant with sushi bar. Prices are in the fine dining category but I wouldn't consider this such a restaurant. Great for those on an expense account or have a desire for this asian cuisine at a premium price.

This place is not cheap but it is absolute perfection. The cocktails were mixed correctly, and the food was incredible. I savored every single bite of my duck confit. The service was excellent too. I will be going back to this place when we head back to Traverse City because the price is worth what you get for it.
