Great Taste of Charleston

They take reservations, we had great service and ambiance. We chose this particular restaurant since they were always recommended on every search of "Charleston restaurants to try". Also, they use mostly if not all local ingredients. Food was delicious and manageable without leftovers. We shared... read more

After going to FIG last night for our first time, I have to agree with the average 4.5 star rating. Pretty much everything was terrific, meeting or exceeding our expectations. Upon entering the restaurant, one sees a French bistro style. It is a bit dark and a little warm. I think the darkness is to keep the temp down. This... More

We had a nice time with friends. The food was well executed and the staff was knowledgeable and helpful. I think our expectations may have outpaced the reality, however.

My group just went there last night. This place is well reviewed with lots of positive comments. We expected it to be superb ..... And it was. We had attentive service. We rarely had 1/2 empty water glasses but never felt bugged. We took our waitresses drink "Fire Walk with Me". Totally delicious. I had the Black Sea Bass. It... More

High expectations based on previous reviews. Food was delicious but the menu limited. I ordered the Sea Bass and it definitely exceeded expectations in flavor & presentation. The portion size will be smaller than the average American may expect but definitely a satisfactory amount. Unfortunately the service was sub-par as the restaurant was not busy and we found ourselves waiting... More

I made my reservations exactly 1 month in advance (the earliest the restaurant allows) and am so glad I did!!! My friend and I split a lobster pasta starter, every bite of which was outstanding. My friend ordered the fish stew for dinner which she said was the best thing she's ever eaten!! We had a great time and would... More

After reading so much about FIG, we were happy to secure 9:45 reservations. Cocktails were good, and the gnocchi appetizer lived up to its reputation, even if it was a little on the salty side. Husband loved the seafood stew. Schnitzel was a bit dull. It was ... just a schnitzel. I think I would have preferred half the meat... More

As a foodie, this was on my must-eat list. Friendly professional staff, excellent ambience and wonderful food. Daily menu always ensures best flavors. Really good wine selection as well.

Here is what is great about FIG: The Food! The food so amazingly good. Each dish is thoughtfully prepared and delicious. We had the 9 Vegetable Salad, Tomato Tatin, Crab Spaghetti, Gnocchi, Salmon, Black Bass, Fish Stew, Golden Carrot, Potato Puree, and Santana Eggplant. We also had three fabulous desserts. The appetizer knock outs were the tomato tatin, gnocchi, and... More
