Virago Ratings and Reviews
Great city views and really cool vibe. We went for a small bachelorette dinner, had a great spot in a booth/table outside on the rooftop deck, however, it was extremely HOT. Absolutely no air flow in the booth and many of us were sweating by the end of dinner, kind of ruined the experience.
Food was good, in my opinion not good enough for prices. Reservations were for 6 pm. Hotesss asked if we would be done with dinner by 8 since they had another reservation. Not really my problem, but maybe that's normal to ask. Will not return but glad I gave it a try.
Great food and great service. Rooftop deck has good view of downtown and Union Station. Have the lobster shooters!! They're red coconut curry with a bite of lobster. Delicious and unique. Bar tables are the best for enjoying the view of the modern interior and for people watching
Good overall experience. Nothing bad sticks out which means it was all good! From the movement I walked into the place I felt comfortable and at ease. The staff was friendly and attentive which always makes for a great dining experience. Too bad I don't live in Nashville or I'd go here a lot.
Overall, I love Virago! Fabulous atmosphere and view! The sweet and spicy edemame is to die for and the miso soup is super good. I've honestly had better sushi, but it's still worth it. Make Sake Monday is the best, half off select sushi and 2-4-1 sake which is the best! If you like sake you'll love theirs! I think my favorite place to sit is the upstairs outdoor bar area. Definitely recommend that to sit for sure if you can make a preference. I would for sure recommend Virago to visitors and you'll see me there pretty much every Monday!
Monday Maki Saki 1/2 price sushi sake was great. Sushi and sake was excellent. Were sat in corner of restaurant next to fire alarm, perhaps due to last minute reservation. Server seemed knowledgeable and friendly but seemed busy and could have checked in a few more times. Would recommend going again.
We have been fans of virago for years. We love location, valet parking is very easy and convenient. The service was excellent and our server, josh, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We loved the maki saki Monday deals for food and drink. The beet appetizer was amazing and highly recommend it! As always, the sushi was delicious, and we enjoyed the hand crafted drinks.
Went for our 1st anniversary! Wanted a nice dinner in Nashville. It didn't disappoint. Honestly was delicious! Recommend the Crispy Rice w/ Tuna! The beets were AMAZING so simple but delicious. My husband had a Ramen bowl and I had a speciality roll. Really loved it!! So cute and chic and just good! Disappointed in the short ribs/skewers but that's okay - we were so full.
Loved the area too. Had a drink before at Fin & Pearl and after at Adeles!
A unique experience -- feels like a hip place in New York City. Restaurant has a club-like feel. Food was outstanding. We had the Chef's tasting menu for two and there was more food than two of us could comfortably eat. Each dish was excellent. Service was not quite up to par. Too many different people dropping dishes off at the table with poor explanations. My husband got soaked when one employee knocked over and broke the glass water bottle. Waiter didn't even know about it. But, overall we enjoyed the dinner very much and will likely return.
Great experience on the patio at Virago! Our server was very helpful and accommodating to our party. We setup for a quick meal before the Predators playoff game and felt completely taken care of and comfortable in our Preds gear on the patio. The views are INCREDIBLE!! Thanks for allowing us.
