Love the atmosphere as well as the food. Exceptional while trendy. Not the best prices although you are going to enjoy yourself!

Very cool, trendy atmosphere with delicious food and city views! The cocktails are great! Coming from FL, our seafood is prime so I can't say it's been my favorite sushi I've ever had, but very good!

I have been to Virago many times and have never been disappointed. Every little detail is taken care of. The managers check on you to make sure everything is perfect. Food is always top-notch. This time we ordered a bottle of red wine that was chilled to perfection. It was a Molly Dooker, which requires a special Molly Dooker "shake".... More

Virago has amazing food and atmosphere, but expect to spend a chunk of change when you go! Our favorites are: Apps - brussel sprouts and the miso cauliflower (both are seriously the best we've had anywhere), the V2 edamame(if you like spice), and the rock shrimp tempura Sushi - I always get the fire crunch, and I love it Don't...

The most delicious sushi ever! We started with the Miso soup which was excellent and ordered the appetizer called Wasabi Guacamole; tuna tartare, wasabi and rice crackers that was completely different than anything I've ever had. I almost wanted to order a second helping. The dinner sushi was really the best I've ever tasted and the drinks were strong. Excellent... More

We had originally planned on going to Whiskey Kitchen but the wait there was very long, so we crossed the street to Virago. I must confess we were slightly underdressed, not in jeans, but more casual than most of the other patrons there on a Friday night. The wait was 30 minutes, so we went to the bar. The drinks...

We went here after not going for a few years, and we were presently surprised. We had fried okra and the classic edamame beans. The okra was simply fried, but it was perfectly crisp and our favorite thing from the entire meal. The edamame beans were very good too. For entrees, we had the Wagyu skirt steak and the Godzilla...

AWESOME!!! Sit outside upstairs. I can't tell you enough of how great our meal, wine, dessert, service and everything including the atmosphere experience was for my wife and I. We would go back in a heart beat. Meal of raw meat cut thin. Placed it on an extremely hot rot that comes with the dish. OMG!! Can't say enough. Wife... More

As an original pioneer of the blossoming Nashville restaurant & food scene, Virago is the gold standard for Asian fusion and Sushi. Virago continues to justify its national acclaim as amongst the nation's best by satiating savvy diners with its artistic cuisine, creative mixology, and sixty label sake list. Virago's perennially awarded "Best Sushi" set in the "Best Interior Design" creates an exciting dining adventure that can only be experienced at Virago. And although Virago's sushi is consistently regarded as the city's best, its innovative menu of Asian-inspired culinary gems is recognized by insiders as the brightest star that shines on MStreet. Above all, Virago is an experience.
