Virago Ratings and Reviews
Lovely dinner at Virago.. as usual! Our server, Robert, was friendly and attentive, without hovering. We dined for our anniversary and once he found out, the manager brought us a special appetizer on the house. Our favorite sushi in Nashville by far! Always fresh.
We heard about Virago through the Omni. We were pleasantly surprised about the choices and the waitress and entire staff we encountered went above and beyond. Loved the fact there were two kitchens and the presentation of the plates we spectacular. Definitely worth it and will indulge again when we come to Nashville.
We really loved the food at Virago. Second time there. However, we had a 6 pm reservation and all our food was out with 20 minutes of arriving. It was hard not to feel rushed. It would have been nice to relax during courses. The sushi courses were wonderful but the Donburri bowl was not very good and hardly touched. I'm sure we'll go again but would stick with sushi!
Food was very good, our waiter William was outstanding. The atmosphere was very modern but nice. Two issues though the noise level was very high and the low bass booming made it hard to hear conversations. It was also very expensive for Japanese food even though it was very good quality.
This is one of the best sushi restaurants I have experienced. The food is fresh and you can taste the many different flavors from each dish. Great to do family style so every one can share. Service was on point. This was our first visit and we will be back when we take another trip to Nashville.
Love this place, great food and drinks. I celebrated my birthday here, which was mentioned to the waiter. We ordered dessert and there was no candle :( I didn't want to ask or make a big deal, but most restaurants do something extra for special occasions. Writing happy birthday on the plate or a candle would have been nice.
Excellent in every way. Our server Kate was awesome, she really made this a great experience. Her knowledge of the menu and drink parings was outstanding. This is a great spot for date night, hanging with friends, or just grabbing some good food and drinks. We will definitely be returning very soon.
We made reservations for our Valentine's Day weekend dinner. I was mistaken about the time. Virgo called me and told me my table was ready. I was 30 minutes away. They held the table for me. I was very pleased to walk in and be sitted immediately. This was very classy of them.
My wife and I were visiting Nashville for her birthday and decided to bring some friends with us to Virago. We all had a phenomenal experience that we will remember years to come. Every time we come to Nashville we stop at Virago and every time is is amazing. From start to finish this is by far our favorite spot to dine in the city. Thanks again Virago for a memorable experience!
Fabulous night! We were celebrating our granddaughter's college graduation. Even though we have white hair and a cane, we had excellent service from William. He was very attentive, polite, and patient. My husband's entree was not good, so William removed it and brought an entree that was higher quality than the original. We all had a wonderful time experimenting with Asian Fusion orders. All three of us really enjoyed this new-to-us food ( except the pork belly!). To summarize...great food, great service, great time. Our special thanks to William.
We waited 30 minutes for a table when we had a reservation. We were told they would check on a table for us, but they never came back to seat us. 20 minutes later I went to the front desk to see what was going on and they had forgotten about us. Worst experience service wise I've ever had at Virago. The two girls working the front were unfriendly and downright dismissive of paying customers that had made reservations. They were not even apologetic for the wait or the fact that they had forgotten to seat us. I was bringing a friend who had never eaten at Virago and I was embarrassed for Virago due to the poor front desk service.
That said, the food was delicious as always and our server was great.
