This place is in a perfect location in Uptown to capture the business lunch crowd, but if the food quality and service doesn't improve, it will soon become a vacant spot. Met a friend for lunch today and arrived at 12:05 PM. He had grabbed a table near the bar for the two of us. The waitress came over and gave us the menus and never came back. We had to flag her down to place our order. My friend had order soup and she brought him a salad. The food was average. I got the beef tereyaki and the sauce was funky that the veggies were sitting in. The side of pineapple was horrible..not sweet at all and it came with four pieces of sushi. The pieces were tiny!!! The waitress NEVER came during the meal to ask if we needed anything or refill my water glass. Finally some other person noticed my empty water glass and gave me a refill. We couldn't even flag our waitress down during this time to get a refill since she was no where to be found. Finally, had to flag to get our check. The goal at lunch is to flip tables as quickly as you can to get more sales..apparently they haven't trained their staff this way. I won't be going back!!! There are alot better options in Uptown. It's a shame since the decor is nice and trendy.

Went here with a group after a conference. The food was awesome. Had the filet and lobster and its was perfect. Service was great. Price was about $30 a person. This place is superior to others in same area. Atmosphere is nice and new!!

Red Ginger is a Japanese style steakhouse with hibachi grills and chefs with a sushi bar as well as a full bar. I was there the night before opening night and experienced being part of the practice crowd. Even then the service was good and the hibachi chefs were entertaining. I have been back since and have noticed better service and the chefs are more entertaining as they have gained experience. Everything I have eaten has been delicious and includes steak, scallops, shrimp, fried rice, vegtables, salads and soup. I recommend this restaurant for couples and crowds and as the chefs say "more saki, more happy!"
