Highlights: Frites, butternut squash soup, more frites, great wines by the glass, bread pudding, and almond joy. I guess the best parts really were the appetizers, sides, and desserts. My mom said her steak was a bit tough, but cooked perfectly and delicious. The mussels were good, but not remarkable. The soup was amazing. We planned on sharing, but I... More

We were headed somewhere else for dinner but due to a last minute change of plan we settled on Fig mostly because the menu looked good. Luckily we struck gold with this place, it's an absolutely delightful little spot. The food was great, the prices were reasonable (for fine dining), but the real star was the service. Our server was... More

Great little restaurant and service. I had sweet potato soup that was very silky and delicious. Also order the fries appetizer with Parmesan and truffle oil. The place has very limited seating so be patient.

If you are traveling to or from the Biltmore and want a nice meal, this is a great stop. Located just a couple of blocks from the Biltmore entrance. The food is very well prepared and presented. The portions are not overly large but are not small either. We did not have their deserts but could hear the tables around... More

I have occasionally frequented this restaurant for many years, and it never fails to disappoint. It still is one of my top go-to restaurants in town. Recently, for lunch, I had the salmon entree for lunch, and it was excellent. It was on a bed of greens and small finger potatoes, with a cumin sauce that was very tasty. The... More

Our group of six ladies visited Asheville the weekend of October 8-9. Our hotel recommended The Fig Bistro as it was close by and they said they had great food. We did not have a reservation but fortunately timed our visit just right and after a wait of less than 1/2 hour we were seated. Three of us ordered the... More

We very much enjoyed our couple's night out at Fig Bistro. True to definition, this bistro was small, but this, coupled with outdoor seating, lent itself to an enjoyably intimate setting. We split the Duck Confit salad as an appetizer, and we both ordered our own Steak Frites. The salad was flavorful and delicious, and our steaks were juicy, cooked... More

We were in Ashville as a group 7 women, celebrating a birthday. We went to Fig for "The birthday dinner". First of all, it is a VERY cramped place. Maybe some would call it intimate but, the building seemed old and tired, there was no view and it was extremely small. 2 of us ordered the pork tenderloins and the... More

Had dinner at Fig tonight. Went with friends who had been there previously. The food was very good, but there were a few issues. First, our waitress told us about the Brie appetizer special, then came back 5 minutes later to take our order and informed us that they were out. Second, the description of the house salad indicated that... More
