Wonderful waitress. Good food. Some very interesting items on menu, but some items are quite pricy.
Love the atmosphere of this eatery since I have been at the Ginger Deli in Rome.
Would recommend to anyone.

Although we had a reservation we had to wait about 15 minutes past the time. While others were seated before us that came in after us. Seems like they had a preference and relationship with

Didn’t even get seated .. walked in the door and they told me that can’t honor my reservation - that they tried calling me to tell me that I would have to wait 2 hours. Showed them phone, I had no missed call. They shrug their shoulders and said sorry. They cancelled my open table reservation. Never going there again what a waste of time especially when being a new parent and barely able to go out with significant other. SMH

When we first arrived we were seated at a table right next to the ice machine despite having a reservation. We were able to switch tables and only had to wait a few minutes. Once in the new location the ambiance was much better, service was good and food was delicious!

Cute place. Went for cocktails and the raw bar, which was excellent. However, the service was extremely slow. Took forever for my husband to get his wine orders and they forgot the cocktail forks with the oysters. Opted not to get an entree because we feared we would be there for an additional two hours. It is a cute place with good food and drinks. Just seemed like a disorganized night for the waitstaff.

Freeezing in there. My food was okay, but my boyfriend’s chicken tasted like it was straight out of the microwave, very chewy.

Disappointing because I’ve had great experiences in the past.

The service was excellent. Great waitstaff! The food was not that great and the prices were high for what we ordered. I don’t think the food is as good as it use to be. Not sure I would go back.

The food here remains very good, but the recent price increases does not lend this venue as affordable.
More importantly, the new policy in effect now does not allow a simple substitution, i.e., potato instead of pasta, or a different potato presentation or even a vegetable (of the restaurant’s choice) instead of mashed potatoes without incurring a $5.00 upcharge! Want linguini instead of capellini - that’ll cost you an additional $5! This restaurant no longer aims to keep their customers satisfied unless they are willing to pay more. Can no longer recommend dining here - customer satisfaction is apparently very low on their list of priorities.

We had not made a reservation for dinner on Friday evening. My husband went on-line and found TR Ginger Express. It was a matter of a few minutes we were all set to go to a great restaurant and enjoy some quiet time and a time to relax. We would certainly recommend it again.

We are not locals and were in the area. We got a last minute mother's day reservation. Food was solidly good. No one had any complaints. I didn't love my chicken dish, but I liked it.

We had a a lovely meal at TR Ginger in the fun and casual "plaid table cloth" dining room. The specials are pricey, ($30 -$50 range) but the regular menu has plenty to offer at a moderate price. We had Chicken Rossini and Chicken Francese. Both were excellent. Portions were large, and we had the left overs for a light dinner the next night.
There are also a a variety of burgers, salads, and other items if someone prefers not to eat Italian.
Great caual date night.

Dont get the chicken wing appetizer, it comes smothered with onions and rosemary and it was very dry, under cooked and had no flavor. One of us had fetuccini alfredo, the place touts home made pasta but they looked like bagged egg noodles to us. Was our 3rd time there, probably wont go back. Service was a little lacking, not really an attentive staff to filling water glasses, clearing dirty plates, etc, the things you would expect from a restaurant that has pasta dishes in the mid to high teens range $ for price.

We had never been to to tr ginger before we always went to Trattoria Romana next door. It is very cute inside like an Italian bistro. Food was good I had shrimp scampi my husband had seafood marinara. We both ordered dessert but wished we had skipped it. Dessert was not really all that great although it looked quite good don't waste the calories. Red sangria was delicious!

Dinner with old friends. Our table toward the back was rather quiet in the otherwise noisy atmosphere. Just as I had requested. Service by Joseph was very good.

Both of our entrees were excellent, spaghetti with clam sauce and chicken/veal parm but the sides of sauteed broccoli rabe and spinach took it to the next level! We like to cook so we don't eat out a lot but when we do, it's not usually Italian, so we decided to use a gift certificate here and we were not disappointed.
