Wild Ginger

Of all Seattle restaurants, none seem quite so divisive as the Wild Ginger. Bring up the topic in any group of knowledgeable Seattle diners, and you’ll find hotly argued disagreements immediately ignite. Seattlites either love or hate it.

For those not in the know, Wild Ginger is a pan-Asian fusion food gourmet restaurant in the heart of downtown, across the street from Beyaroya Hall. It’s quite a large restaurant that goes for and achieves a dimly lit romantic yet hip-happenin’ crowd kind of decor. It’s quite good for the fancy date, but also well suited for big groups with a little cash to spend.

Personally, I’ve always found the food to be fantastic. Their duck is a specialty, and worth getting every time. The seafood is also generally quite excellent. I’ve heard bad things about the curry, but then I don’t go to Wild Ginger to order curry.

As you might have guessed, I’m a fan. I’ve never had bad service at this restaurant, and the food’s always been very good indeed. But if you have a Wild Ginger horror story, please share it, as I’m still curious as to what anyone could find to dislike about this restaurant.

    Wild Ginger is GREAT, but having Wild Ginger while enjoying a show at the Triple Door is divine!

    Just have the ginger martini FIRST, and the rest is details.
