We made reservations cause we didn't know if it would be busy or not. Graciously they seated us early but I personally think the tables are too close. You can hear the next people's conversation without even straining. I would say for 40$ a plate, that I can have a nice dinner conversation without the table next to me listening... More

What's not to love about anything Ming Tsai creates?! From amazing burgers to Asian spring rolls, everything is fresh and delicious! The calamari is always a treat, as are the lettuce wraps! This is always a perfect choice. Great parking is in back. After lunch, check out E. A. Davis, an old fashioned department store my mother visited when she... More

Food was good, but very overpriced, menu was reasonable but overall did not think this place was as good as all the hype, and was not very good value

Decided we didn't want to cook last night and had heard the Blue Ginger had a great bar menu that you could just walk in and get a seat for so we gave it a shot. Got there early (just before 6) but even at 7:30 when we left there were open spots. Service was terrific, we shared the teriyaki... More

Over the years, we have gone to Blue Ginger many times. It is always very good. After our latest visit for lunch, we felt like the menu needs updating with some new items. As always, the food was very good but the waitstaff service was not at it's usual high standard.

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.

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
