We didn't see what all the hype is about. Drinks were decent but my husband I are ordered an appetizer and an entree to share and they brought both together. The appetizer Tuna poke was $17.00! But certainly not as fresh as tuna could be and the rice cake under it was overcooked. The tuna poke at the Yardhouse is... More

Very nice, clean and attractive restaurant but one has to like asian foods. We had fish and chips and martinis. The waiter was very pleasant and her[ful. Martinis were good and cold.As for the food, it was good but very expensive. Too high priced for me. By George

We called ahead, not knowing if we needed a reservation on a Friday night at 7 pm. We were seated almost immediately when we arrived. The ambiance was elegant dining, with formal yet friendly behavior by staff. Lots of social energy in the room from diners at other tables. The tables are close to others. We were seated right across... More

The only reason for four stars rather than five is that it just took too long. Service was friendly, but after an hour we were all pretty impatient. All three dishes were great: hangar steak, curry pasta, and ginger tofu with awesome vegetables.

I went to Blue Ginger with my parents on a recent trip to Wellesley. While the beverages were good - a margarita and drink with gin and raspberry puree - the appetizers were fair to middling. I had the pork belly, which may have been my own fault, but it was exceptionally fatty and didn't have very good flavor. My... More

My wife and I were visiting my son at Babson College in Wellesley MA. Not knowing where to eat one night we chanced by going into Blue Ginger. What a find. The best, unusual and tasteful dishes we've had in a long time. We were not with our son that that night but talked him into going there with us... More

I've watched the TV show for years and finally decided to try Blue Ginger for a birthday dinner. We were disappointed. The food was good, but not worth a 90-minute drive to get there, and we thought it was overpriced. We had the spring rolls and calamari to start, neither was really remarkable. The dipping sauce for the calamari was... More

You know a place is good when after almost 20 years of business it is still packed on a Thursday night. Most places with that longevity and celebrity chef name can often mail it in, but thankfully Chef Tsai and his team keep pushing to create an outstanding experience. Looking for something both unique and not in Boston for my... More

Tonight we ate at the bar at Blue Ginger and it was such a treat!! We started with the Laos Chicken Wings which were unbelievable. Then we had the pulled pork dumplings and tuna poke. So good!!! it was a perfect way to end a stressful day.

Blue Ginger is consistently outstanding. Went out to dinner with my husband and mother for my birthday. The service is professional and excellent. The food is always a few notches above other restaraunts. We had the calamari (so lightly fried) which was delicious as was the tuna poke, a sushi dish. Highly recommend both. My mother had the lamb which... More

Description
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
