Wild Ginger - Franklin
Wild Ginger is a refreshingly distinct fine dining experience located at the heart of Cool Springs-featuring an eclectic blend of Pan-Asian, South American, and Western cuisine in the Pacific Rim style-with succulent selections for all palates, including the popular miso seabass, braised short rib, and a wide array of signature maki and tapas.
Though restaurants categorized as “fusion” are mostly located in trendy metropolitan areas like Miami and Manhattan, Wild Ginger is the first and only of its kind in Middle Tennessee.
This family-owned and operated restaurant’s perpetually growing popularity and devoted regular clientele make it essential for us to not just continually reinvent our menu, but more importantly, the entire dining experience. Wild Ginger is the perfect destination for a business lunch, romantic evening, or relaxing dinner with family and friends.

We had a reservation and was seated promptly at our arrival time. Austin, was our server and took excellent care of us. The food was excellent as always, and the atmosphere was pleasant as expected. Enjoyed Wild Ginger once again!
Wild Ginger never disappoints. The food, service and atmosphere are always excellent.
As always, Wild Ginger was a great dining experience. We love the variety of their menu and the knowledge, professionalism, and friendliness of their wait staff and servers. Our drinks and food were top-notch. The entire experience from start to finish was excellent!
Our server was excellent as was the food. I liked the decor and due to lots of folks also enjoying themselves, it was not quiet, but not overwhelming. You must try the pureed butternut squash - it's delicious.
The seasoning really makes the food at Wild Ginger. The flavors are so delicious and the presentation is beautiful. It is loud in there and hard to hear your conversation. I was sad that they took the lemongrass pork dish off the menu, but enjoyed what I ordered. It is a great place for a special occasion or even just a nice lunch or dinner out.
Short ribs were not real but a chuck roast. Always leave the bone I. If you disagree. For a rancher, it was easy to tell it really wasn’t shirt ribs.
Experience was great.
We were seated with our beverage order taken. Then we sat for 40 minutes with no other communication at all by waiter or any other member of the restaurant. Other tables were seated and waited on all around us. Their food was delivered to their tables and checked on numerous times. We finally got up from our table and went to the hostess stand to ask about paying for our beverages since we were clearly never going to get to place an order for food or anything else. This was our first trip to this restaurant. I have to say this was not a good experience at all. As you can imagine I am unable to comment on the food as we never had the opportunity to order any much less try it. Very disappointed as I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now.
Very nice. More people than I expected. Have had lunch last two weeks and very happy.
Great food and service!
Happy New Year.

Always a favorite place to take guests who come to town! Food always fabulous and the presentation is beautiful!
Cocktail drinks wonderful also!
Our best meal yet. Complements to your chef. Seven people, all raved. Thank you
We had the most wonderful experience celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary! The food, atmosphere, and our waiter, Mitchell, was outstanding!
Our favorite restaurant in Franklin!
Been coming here for years, always delicious. Beautiful presentation.
Girls night out with my daughters. Sushi was great. Fun time!
Wonderful experience!!! Best food and service!! Thank you!
Birthday dinner for one of my daughters. We loved the rolls and apps. Kids saved room for some delicious desserts as well. Soooo good. Will be back again for sure.
The food quality is always excellent and the service is attentive but not overly so. They did a great job of creating a socially distanced dining experience.
Food always great. Austin was awesome
Hadn’t been to Wild Ginger in quite sometime. Overall experience was good. My daughter loved her sushi. I had the sea bass which unfortunately was just “okay “. Will definitely go back again but think I’ll stick with the sushi.
The food is great.
If you’re looking for a place that’s separating the tables right now, this place is hard to do that. Just be prepared and cool with being close to other parties. Otherwise, take out is great when it’s too cold for the patio.
It was very crowded, loud and the food was average, but overpriced.
Christmas celebration with friends.
Excellent food, but unfortunately the restaurant was NOT practicing social distancing. A large section of the restaurant was closed, but they packed every single table in the open section. It was as if it was December 2019. We arrived early and it seemed safe, but by the time 7pm rolled in the restaurant was absolutely packed. We felt very uncomfortable. The restaurant should be more responsible in trying to create a safe dining experience for their guests. If this continues I wouldn’t doubt if the restaurant had to close for a period of time.
Really great restaurant with great food and service.
The ambiance and service was great. My husband's salad was very good, and the kids meal was large and enjoyed. We didn't care for the sushi, and normally love sushi. I think it may have been an off day.
Always an excellent choice for great food and a great staff.
Awesome as usual.
Predictably great food and friendly service. One of our “go to” restaurants
Very busy night for our waiter so wasn't able to check on us as much as should, but that's okay we had a nice time.
Our server, Sam, was wonderful.
Great outdoor venue. Server was excellent. Good day!
The Dynamite Shrimp was outstanding. The Mee Goreng was delicious. The Sushi/Sashimi platter was amazing. Highly recommended.
