Wild Ginger is a refreshingly distinct fine dining experience located at the heart of Cool Springs-featuring an eclectic blend of Pan-Asian, South American, and Western cuisine in the Pacific Rim style-with succulent selections for all palates, including the popular miso seabass, braised short rib, and a wide array of signature maki and tapas. Though restaurants categorized as "fusion" are mostly located in trendy metropolitan areas like Miami and Manhattan, Wild Ginger is the first and only of its kind in Middle Tennessee. This family-owned and operated restaurant's perpetually growing popularity and devoted regular clientele make it essential for us to not just continually reinvent our menu, but more importantly, the entire dining experience. Wild Ginger is the perfect destination for a business lunch, romantic evening, or relaxing dinner with family and friends.

We read the reviews and knew we had to try Wild Ginger. Upon recommendation by the waiter I tried the Sushi platter which has both sashimi and nigiri. The ahi tuna is the best I've ever had. I barely had to chew it was so soft! And the pink girl roll, and two tempura fried rolls my husband had were... More

Started with generous appetizer of Tokyo Gyoza, delivered to the table promptly. Havana sushi roll was fresh, tasty, and satisfied my 6'2" 250 lb. appetite. Wife's duck confit was best she's had since leaving Manhattan three years ago -- perfect portion size. We each had a Wild Ginger martini with dinner, which was perfectly mixed and delicious. Atmosphere was lively... More

I depended on other TripAdvisor reviews to choose this for a holiday week lunch - it paid off royally. Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. Blue Cheese Caesar is the best (be careful, it has bacon - I missed that on the menu and didn't realize until well into it - no meat in five years is setting in hard about now!). Son... More

Fantastic restaurant - Quick friendly but professional service, delicious food and beautiful elegant modern decor. Big comfortable chairs in the bar area and well positioned furniture in the main dining room. An airy, light building during the day, sprinkled with twinkling lights and soft toned lamps at night and all without being too noisy. Try the spicy tuna with crunchies... More

Great ambiance in Franklin! The restaurant was a nice surprise for my husband and I. I felt like I was dining in Manhattan not Franklin. The food was great and the server was knowledgeable and friendly. Will go back!
