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.

I visited Blue Ginger with my girlfriend and another couple last weekend. I ordered the broiled scallops with rice pilaf, it was delicious. The chef added just a touch of soy sauce with this dish to give it an Asian fragrance, the resultant flavor was refreshing. My girlfriend had the rack of lamb which I tasted, it was quite good....

Any time we are in the area, we try to eat here (if we can get in because it is always busy). The food is always delicious and the service is amazing. This time, my husband and I brought our vegetarian daughter with us. We informed our server that she was vegetarian and our server was great about letting her... More

We are fortunate to have Blue Ginger in town. The food has always been superb and on this particular Wednesday mid January was no exception. As normal it was rather busy but there were a few open tables. The bar area was also lively. On a previous visit we sat in the bar area and was happy to be able... More

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

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
