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.

Food was good so was service but I was really disappointed to see they have changed the dress code. People were dressed way too casual for a place like that - including baseball hats on backwards. Not cool. Makes them look like they are hurting for business.

Virago used to be one of our favorites, but something has changed. And not for the better. The Brussel sprouts were way too salty. The pork belly came out lukewarm. When we pointed it out, they took care of it. Sushi was good. The bowl with egg on top was odd and bland. Won't be going back. Service was great.

Disappointing, though not busy
We've have a few visits to Virago and enjoyed it enough to come back on the fly. The place was virtually empty, but the staff seemed to struggle to keep up with our one table.
The food was uneven, with many offerings only so-so and not deserving of the 3 digit bill.
I'm afraid we won't be back, which is a shame.

As my husband and I had dinner tonight (7/7/16) at a local Atlanta restaurant, we discussed our evening at Virago. In my 45 years and in his 49 years of life, this was BY FAR the WORST dining experience EVER for both of us (and my husband never complains about anything)! The rooftop deck is beautiful and the food was actually very good (the rock shimp appetizer was amazing), but we will not be back due to the horrible waitress and management!!!! I will be sending a letter to the owner and leadership team of Mstreet restaurant group.

I had high expectations for my birthday dinner at Virago as a first time customer but I was wildly impressed. The food menu, drink menu, service, and server recommendations far exceeded my expectations! Delicious food. Crispy Rice/Spicy Tuna with the pop rocks was divine. The bacon wrapped scallops were cooked perfectly. The service was quick and awesome. Definitely be returning ASAP. Made my birthday dinner with out of town guests AMAZING!

You can't miss by ordering the shrimp or steak if you're not a fan of sushi!! However, the sushi was great!!! The service was wonderful and such a great roof top dining experience!!!! Two thumbs up for the restaurant and to Katie (our server). She earned the nickname "giggles!"

Nice atmosphere (was a little dark, but not too bad) and food was good. There was a bachelorette party near us so the noise level was unacceptable as we could not talk around our table. I mentioned this to the server (who was EXCELLENT btw) and he said it was like that often on Friday and Saturday evenings so let the reader beware if planning to go at those times.
