It was my wife’s birthday. And it was our first date spot years ago.
Visiting my daughter who in college
Great food and wonderful service. It's has a very nice set up and ambiance was good.
My wife and I are frequent guests at virago. This time we went to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. This time our experience was over the top. All the food was on point and service exceptional. They had a cake made by the pastry chef at Kayne and brought over for us by surprise. The cake was absolutely delicious and such an awesome gesture from everyone at the restaurant. Thank you for making our night special.
Most fantastic food. Highest quality and excellent service. The place was absolute gorgeous!!
WE really enjoyed the food. However this is NOT a quiet place. With loud club type music playing and a centrally located LARGE bar area, don't expect to be able to have a quiet conversation with someone. It's lively place for sure! Great food though. The best sushi we've had in nashville by far.
I moved to Nashville from Chicago several months ago and haven't had any sushi since i moved here. Everyone I've asked has said that Nashville just doesn't have great sushi... Virago was AWESOME. I lived across the street from one of the best sushi places in Chicago and this place stands up to my expectations. All of the food was delicious, beautiful and fresh. We got the wagyu ishiyaki and it was amazing. For the price you pay, you get A LOT of meat and it was so tasty. We also got rock shrimp to start which was also very good. We ended up getting two sushi rolls and both were so delicious. I can't wait to go back.
Our server was very friendly and willing to answer any questions. They even brought out a special dessert on the house for my husband's birthday. If you're looking for delicious Japanese, go here. You won't be disappointed.
P.S. The weather was beautiful so we sat on the roof deck which I didn't even know they had. Great view of the city. Inside looked really cool too.
My wife and I have been to Virago's many times in the past. It's one of our top two restaurants in Nashville! A MUST experience place!!
Best sushi.Amazing view.Great service.
Food was delicious, and our server, Steven, was awesome.
We had a party of three and had a really great time! The crispy Brussel Sprouts were amazing! The bomb roll was delicious too! Definitely a great experience!
Food and sever were amazing.
Hostess section was a disgrace.
Had very specific request in my reservation. They didn’t even try to accommodate. Overheard hostesses saying “if someone doesn’t like where you seat them, just tell them it’s the best available” as I walked up. As if, they already knew why I was coming back to the hostess stand. And then that’s what they said. Very dismissively. I asked about non-bar/ out of TV view seating and they said here was none and corrected me saying I wasn’t in a bar area. Excuse me, if there are 5 TVs and an unmanned bar ... it’s a bar area.
1) don’t talk about a client when they’re in ear shot
2) don’t act surprised when they complain about something that you already know is wrong.
3) don’t lie to a client about seating availability. I have eyes and can see that my request could have totally have been accommodated. At least one preferable location was vacant for my entire meal.
4) apologize if you actually cannot accommodate a guest. Don’t tell them it’s the only option matter of factly and with a sense of arrogance and control.
5) Actually, on the note of service— if you aren’t accommodating my reservation request, tell me upon arroval BEFORE you take me to my seat.
Bad service and overpriced sushi.
My friends and I came for my birthday dinner! The food was great and the staff was wonderful. Fun atmosphere!
Excellent service by Lee.
Love it ! A very sentimental place for me..... We have been there at least 8-10 times.
We have a lot of fun there.
Great food and atmosphere.
Really love our favorite waiter, Rich !
I drove from Atlanta to enjoy the sushi at Virago!!! Worth it, every single time!
Amazing food, great sake, great time
A visit with my nephew from the Philippines
Great salad and great sushi. Love the crispy California roll and white dragon roll
Great spot to go before going out with friends, for a date night or just for dinner. Consistently great service and food.
Must have been an off night ...crispy brussels sprouts were salty and soggy and are usually excellent. Sweet potato was just deepfried yuck Miso soup was good. Oishi and dynamite were good But the lobster shots and midori crab roll not worth it
Our waitress Bridget was incredibly patient and helpful with making our selections. We all had an incredible time celebrating my best friend’s marriage!
Haven't been here in a while, but it still has it going on. The sushi was outstanding for the area - with an absolutely beautiful presentation. Appetizers and drinks were also great, overall a superb value for what you get - great food + fantastic ambiance. I wish I could give a 4.5 stars, as I like to reserve 5 stars for the best of the best, but admittedly for Nashville, this is a very consistent and great restaurant, so - I'll round up.
Amazing experience! Amazing food and service
Lee was our server and he was top flight! The food was authentic and well presented. Craft cocktail highlight was the wasabi martini. This place is a must-do if you enjoy Japanese fusion cuisine. The vibe here is good and it has a nice bar area. Make sure to get the soy sauce flight and fresh wasabi grated tableside. It’s the real deal!
Great food. Great service. Little dark. Aggressively priced. I’d go back without a second thought.
Virago is always a great night out with friends!!! wonderful food, fabulous drinks and perfect ambiance !!! Still my favorite restaurant in all of Nashville!
Great server!!! Food excellent !!
Really good food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
I love Virago, and pretty much any M Street restaurant. They know exactly how to do things when it comes to upscale cuisine. I would recommend this restaurant to any one. The food, atmosphere, and service is all excellent.
Viragos is usually one of our favorites but we were disappointed this time and doubt we go back. We noticed many of our favorite foods had been removed from the menu and when we asked about the menu change we were told certain items were removed to streamline the menu.... I must say they removed some of their best items! Then I learned they no longer serve the Ninja Bacon.... so that’s a deal breaker Viragos. It was nice while it lasted.
Just ok. Expected much more.
Visiting Nashville from Boston, my colleagues directed me to Virago. All I can say is “THANK YOU!” This was as good as any sushi or Asian fusion I’ve had in years (perhaps since my first visit to Nobu). Gorgeous place. Fabulous vibe. Great service. Interesting food combinations. Great flavors. Fantastic!! Skip the Honky Tonk dives on Broadway and head here!!
We had a great time at Virago celebrating my sister-in-law's 19th birthday. The staff brought out dessert with "19" candles and our server was very knowledge about the menu and Japanese language.
Amazing food and atmosphere!!
An outstanding dining experience. A creative menu executed brilliantly. We will definitely go back when we are in Nashville.
Virago is warm and welcoming and has a great atmosphere. The sushi is amazing and The Bomb is well...the bomb! Perfect for a girls night out!
Thought by making a Rez would have better seating. Didn’t even get to see the ambiance. Was sat in sushi bar area. Very average seating when looked out at the rest of the seating. Disappointed. Had heard great things about the place
Virago was a great choice to kick start our girls weekend! Food, drinks, and service were all top notch! The lighting was almost too dim so it was hard to read the menu without a phone light! Otherwise, the experience was flawless!
