Casual/Smart Casual...but some people dressed it up. I was in Jeans/Black short sleeve button up amd did not feel out of place. Ambiance is dark. Most seats make you feel like you have your own space.

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.
