FIG is a restaurant that requires an adventurous spirit and trust in your wait staff. That said, we enjoyed our dinner there...Ask questions, chat with the waiter...Even for "foodies" there were unfamiliar terms, ingredients etc, and discussing them with our waiter made the evening more informative as well as yummy!

Not much to say that hasn't been said already. Everything we had was amazing and service was quick. Lives up to the hype.

Not the most exciting location, but with great decor and subtle lighting, a romantic mood was set. The service contributed as well, as it was polished and warm, from our greeter, to our waiter, to the other waitstaff. My wife loved her salad of local greens and her local fish, served simply without a lot of butter, but with a... More

Make reservations well in advance! The food was fantastic. I love a menu that is not a book. This menu was perfect - it offered the specials, everything is seasonal and different. Our server was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu because I had a lot of questions. He recommendations were excellent. Whatever the tomato appetizer... More

We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. Service was attentive and our waiter was very accommodating to our needs and questions. He was very professional and likable at the same time, what a great combo. Ok, now the food, ricotta gnocchi were little pillows for beautiful angels! Cheese plate was good with a good variety and wonderful marmalade. Sea bass... More

We arrived late on a Tuesday night for dinner. The only seats available was at a communal table. To our surprise this was a great experience. We conversed with people from Japan and Seattle. The food and service were excellent, but be aware that the wine can be expensive.

I had dinner at FIG while on a girls getaway. This group of ladies knows good food, and we all came away in love with the place. Our waiter, Brad, was attentive and knowledgeable and we had a lot of fun with him. Standouts included the heirloom tomatoes with cucumber gazpacho, fish dishes, and the amazing sorghum cake. One of... More

Mrs H and I had just checked in at the Renaissance and asked the Concierge where to go for a good meal at an upscale place. She said: "You can try FIG, but you'll be lucky to get a seat at the Bar." We walked the 2 blocks down Meeting St. The girl at the desk got us the last... More

what an exceptional treat. We had less than 24 hours in rainy Charleston this summer evening and wanted a fine dining experience in walking distance of our hotel. Perfecto! FIG! Without a rez, we were welcomed warmly, our umbrella was checked and we enjoyed cocktails in a long bar area. The community table rescued us from a very long wait... More
