Fusion / Eclectic
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.

I enjoyed a lovely dinner with a friend last week at Wild Ginger. The food and service were great. As the night got busier the noise level rose. Concrete floors make the sound ricochet! I would still go back but in the warmer weather will sit outside and I think the accousitics will be better in the wide open spaces!

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and looking for a different place for date night. Food was superb. I would eat here just for the food no matter what the service was like. It’s worth the visit just to check out the food.

The restaurant was very gracious with me as I ordered the Ahi not knowing what it was and couldnt eat raw tuna. I was willing to pkg it and let my husband eat but they replaced the meal with another one instead. That was very kind and I am grateful for that. Thank you.

Our visit was good except that they placed us at an awful table just inside the door and we literally FROZE to death every time the door opened. There should NOT be a table there for customers to be seated. It was our daughter's birthday...Wild Ginger should have done better. Server was excellent though.

Poor service from start to finish.
Did not offer to explain any specials or menu items
Wanted to take drink and dinner order as soon as we were seated. Was never asked if we needed a 2nd wine drink. Had to ask for refill of tea. Was not asked if we wanted a dessert. Seemed rushed from time seated to time we left. Had reservation at 7:00 and was out by 7:45, was not the type of dinner date we had in mind.

The best part of our meal was the server. She was great! It was just so loud in there that we could not enjoy decent conversation with our family. We have had some great food before but we ordered non-Asian dishes this time and we were disappointed.

This was the second time going on the last three months and the quality of the food was not what it once was. Much better sushi can be food on many other places. AHI tons steak was so tough, I had to saw on it with a knife.

Excellent food and drinks! Nice restaurant. They did not read my request for a not-so-busy seating area and tried to seat us at a bistro table at the bar (which was not even big enough to eat on). Then realized their mistake and moved us to a better table. Our waiter was quirky to put it nicely. We did not care for him or his jokes. I will return one day only because the food and drinks were so good. One more chance...

I love sushi here and haven’t had a bad roll. We got the special and it wasn’t our favorite wish we would have stuck with just rolls. Dynamite shrimp was delish. We didn’t get our salad before meal, but it was good! We will go back just won’t order steak! I love the lobster lobster roll and crazy cow !!! Salads are great as are appetizers!

The salad was delicious. The lobster sushi was basically California roll with a tiny bit of “lobster” pate on top. The desert wasn’t good at all. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Great food and environment. Service was good - server listened and provided recommendations, steering us towards what we were looking for and based on what he and others recommends. Place seemed busy for number of staff. Very good service - a little waiting - but not bad at all. Very friendly service.

The food here is fantastic. I brought in a group of about 11 people and we ordered a lot of sushi, sashimi, appetizers and deserts. Mitch did a great job handling everyone. Did I mention the food was great? The edamame has a great chili sauce - best I've had. The only complaint would be it is somewhat loud due to the openness but that is so small, it wouldn't have an impact on going there again.

Overall, definitely recommend. If I lived in the area, this would be a regular stop.
