The sushi was absolutely delicious, and the half price wine was a great deal. The service was a little spotty, especially from the hostess who really didn't Like the fact that I was a party of one. I would definitely go back – – especially on a Monday when some of the sushi rolls are half price during happy hour.

Amazing dinner with my husband. The food was delicious. The menu was unique and fresh. There was a good balance between the delicate, absolutely perfect sashimi we tried first and the hearty, comforting ramen that I had for my main. The service was stellar. The restaurant's decor was beautiful. It's very trendy but warm and welcoming. We had a fantastic experience!

Amazing food, great service, but way overpriced. Cheapest glass of wine is $11. BUT the food was amazing and a great place to go for a special occasion. Bill for two plus drinks was almost $150. I probably won't be back because we cannot afford this on a regular basis.

Sushi was great, table service was great, and you'll pay accordingly.
Note to Mgt:
We had to come early, around 5:30, and were the first and only table seated for the majority of the meal. The hostesses sat us at the very first table in the restaurant, which made us feel unwelcome. They need to balance whatever program they use to seat people with a little common sense.

Had heard only the best about Virago and was met with the same experience I'd heard about. One of the best sushi meals I've ever had. Had a lot of fun with the stone cooking. Great wine selection as well. Edamame and stuffed shishito peppers were a huge hit.

We frequently dine at Virago. The sushi is fresh, the dessert delightful, and the ambience perfect. Sit inside, or enjoy a skyline view from the rooftop. The wine list is lengthy, and the chef's creations are to be sampled.

Staff was very attentive and accommodating. We were seated promptly in spite of the fact that I had made a mistake with the reservation. Our server was very friendly and quick to help us order with his recommendations. We thought that the food was very tasty with nice varieties. Ambiance was very comfortable.

Virago is always good. It's been a while since I have been... and wowee! I don't remember it being this incredible! I brought some foodie first-timers with me who thought it was the best grub they've had in a long time! I'm not a brussels sprout fan, but omg we had the Crispy Brussels sprouts for an appetizer, and then two of us ordered them as a side dish with our meal -- how did the chef do that?! The Stoned Steak is always fun (you cook the thin sliced steak yourself on a hot salty rock right there at the table), but every entree at the table was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. We were in food heaven. And you haven't had coconut jasmine rice until you've had it a Virago -- if you forget to order it with your entree, order it for desert. It's amazing. I have to mention the Yuzu martini too. I'm actually going to find Yuzu (whatever it is) to try to replicate this at home -- loved it! Our waiter was A+ excellent too. H was very knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on. Go to Virago - now! By the way, I've never written a food review before. I was that impressed.

This is a fabulous restaurant conveniently located in the Gulch area. The service, food and atmosphere are wonderful. Order slowly - your eyes will want a lot of food! This is a regular place for my daughter to eat so being together there was a treat. Make this a definite stop if you love GREAT sushi.

Your restaurant lived up to it's expectations! It's a very swanky environment, great pretty-people watching and loved the bar and couches. Ordered 3 rolls, very good but a bit small portions for the price, but still delicious. Michael, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful. Nice birthday celebration for my date!
