After all the hype, it was a relief not to be disappointed at all. Nice decor, knowledgeable service, good wine selection.

We finally visited Blue Ginger after great reviews and recommendations. The butter fish was amazing! Professional and attentive staff without being overbearing. The menu is simple yet diverse so there is something for everyone. We also appreciated their knowledge of food allergies as we have some in the family. The decor is very nice, and the dining room was not... More

Blue Ginger is always amazing. I have been coming here for years and have never had a poor experience. Service is always impeccable and the food is out of this world. They're very versatile and can handle romantic 1-on-1 dinners, or large parties. Definitely try the foie gras shumai, the lamb chops, and the lobster. You will not be disappointed!

I Have been to this resto many times but have never eaten in the dining room. I love the atmosphere in the bar , seems much less stuffy. The cocktails and all really great, have tried many over the course of several visits. Apps are great for sharing. Great night out with friends, date night or a few couples.

Try the tuna pokie and spring-rolls for appetizer. Hard to come back a second time and not have them again. Fish dishes are consistently excellent. The rack of lamb was well spiced and cooked with root vegetables as a side. Service is excellent. Wine list is very detailed and priced appropriately.

Enjoyed lunch with a small business group. Restaurant was quiet, we had reservation and were cramped at tables. Servers were attentive, although one of the orders was completely wrong, apps were good and the fish was great. Most went with the better fish which is a specialty and prepared appropriately and was enjoyable/ delicate.

I will begin by saying why I am giving 3 stars - The wait staff were excellent and deserve 5 starts, but the food itself was definitely a 2 at best. I have been eating at Blue Ginger since it opened and the past 2 visits have been quite disappointing. My dad really wanted to come for lunch and I... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Especially like the lounge area for casual atmosphere, comfortable quiet seating areas and access to both lounge and dining room menu. I love the lounge menu- especially foie gras dumplings and tuna tartare ! Salmon carpaccio is excellent and dont miss the butterfish. The cocktails are creative and delicious. Service attentive, friendly and... More

We've been to Blue Ginger several times. The food & cocktails never disappoint, always phenomenal. We left feeling like we were second class citizens. Other tables who were sat after us, received their drinks & appetizers before our waitress even came over to greet us & it continued to go downhill the rest of the night. Blue Ginger used to...

Been wanting to try this place for quite awhile. With another couple we finally had the opportunity to try the food. Had the fish, salmon and fish and chips, callamari and 2 salads with drinks and desert. The service was great, staff was pleasant and the food was excellent.

Thank uphamkw

Blue Ginger, located in Wellesley, brings urban dining and sophistication to the suburbs. In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, Blue Ginger expanded with a Rockwell Group-designed renovation, creating a chic, feng-shui inspired space with three distinct dining options. Enhancements include an updated main dining room in which to savor Ming's signature East-West cuisine, three private dining rooms, and the new Lounge at Blue Ginger, complete with cozy banquettes and a 10-stool granite bar. An Asian Tapas menu is served in the Lounge, featuring casual, shareable dishes like "Ming's Bings," Ming's East-West take on the burger. "Blue Ginger is unusual, not only because of the food or the room, but because it's a neighborhood restaurant of a type not found too often in the Boston area...those of us who live farther away will just have to travel now that the secret is out." --The Boston Globe
*NOTE* Reservations are not accepted for The Lounge at Blue Ginger
