Our party of five arrived for a late lunch and waited about 30 minutes for a table. Once seated, we were taken care of very well. The menu offered a nice selection for different palates, and everything was prepared perfectly. Pommes frites in truffle oil were great, and the Reuben and bleu cheese risotto were outstanding. We also ordered mac... More

Let's start with the good - highly recommend the fried oysters with remoulade appetizer. Quiche of the day with goat cheese and andouille sausage was outstanding. The Duck Confit salad was amazing. Happy plates all around, to quote our 3 year old niece. The service however was inconsistent. When the server was on, it was clear he was well trained.... More

Five of us had a late lunch here. Service was a tad slow, possibly because the kitchen was backed up. One of us had the shrimp Oriental soup, two had the really good dill egg salad sandwich, one had a good house salad, and one had the quiche of the day with an excellent salad to accompany it. A cute,... More

We ate at Fig for dinner and then came back for lunch. Although the restaurant is small, their offerings are varied and well thought out. The food is excellent and service is efficient as well as friendly. I'd be willing to try anything they offer, but particularly enjoyed the chowder. They also have a well selected wine list, with excellent... More

This was a last minute reservation while staying in biltmore village. I forgot to make reservations for dinner and this happened to be the only place with availability! I didn't even look at the menu before we got there! It was so delicious and very affordable! Ofcourse they were very accommodating to vegetarian/vegan, down to letting me know there was... More

We hadn't eaten at Fig in quite awhile and we really love their Bolognese. We called ahead of time to see if they still had it on the menu. They asked us to hold a second. When the hastens came back on the phone she said it was not on the current menu, but the Chef said it would be... More

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
