My friends and I had dinner on a Saturday night. Everything we had was first rate! It was out of my comfort zone, but I ordered the Donburri Bowl and it was truly fabulous! And enough to share!! The sushi was fresh and delightful. The Scottish smoked salmon is buttery with just a whisper of smoke - perfection! You definitely... More

Enjoyed dinner at Virago on a Sunday evening. The Wasabi Guacamole was inventive and flavorful. Additionally we had sushi, sashimi and a salad. The sashimi was beautifully presented and the sushi was good but nothing special. The salad was fresh and full of flavor. The service by Lee was top-notch. He had a great personality, was professional in guiding us... More

We did the chefs choice menu. Roughly $75 per person. I wish the food would have been served individually rather than family style, that being said...... it was the best meal I have had in a long time. The wagyu beef, the sushi, everything was perfect! Our waiter, William, was spot on and super responsive. Go people! Splurge and enjoy,... More

I asked google map for a place to get sushi as I was new to Nashville and it sent me to Virago. Very nice place, the decor is modern with a lot of attention to architectural details. They have two separate kitchen: one for cooked dishes and the sushi bar. I only got the sushi. The manu has variety and... More

This was a great restaurant for those that want to step outside the box and have a different type of menu. The ambiance was very trendy and unique. The service was good and the waitress made several outstanding recommendations. The food is not something you find at a traditional sushi restaurant. The items have a lot of flavor and are... More

Virago is one of my favorite restaurants in Nashville. The decor is cool. The bar is hip. The food and drinks are excellent. Lots of unique and wonderful dishes on the menu and specials as well. Try Monday Maki Saki night for some very good "two for ones"

I don't love sushi but was invited here by a local I met on Tinder. She was eating edemame, and we ordered the half price sushi on Monday's. It was very good! Sarah was fun and friendly as a bartender.

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.
