We live in Charleston and Fig used to be our favorite restaurant. We just had our third mediocre dinner and we can't find a reason to return. The service was great but the food was not. Gone were some of their great dishes. We chose their signature entrees and they couldn't compete with what we make at home. They dropped... More

We came here as part of our mini-moon, and were greeted with a congratulations and glass of champagne. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and had a great enthusiasm for the menu. All three courses contained seasonal, local ingredients, all of which were excellent. Their menu changes often so I won't bore you with the details of what we ate, but... More

This is a truly amazing restaurant and one not to be missed. The food is incredible, the wine list over the top, and the service perfect. The seafood dishes were especially great. AAAA++++!

As we sat at the bar, we decided the dinners we enjoyed were comparable to other great meals we have enjoyed around the world. San Francisco, Sydney, Auckland, Hanoi, Bangkok, NYC, Montreal, Quebec City, Fortaleza, Columbo, Perth, Etc., etc., La Di Da! A wonderful experience. So there...

This was my last dinner in Charleston after eating at some great restaurants so I was hoping Fig was going to be as good as the others. The interior is very nicely decorated but is VERY dark. I was glad I read the menu outside in the light while I was waiting. I started with spaghetti with crab appetizer which... More

Fig, a simple menu of about 10 appetizers and 6 entrees. And to look at it you may see dishes you aren't sure about or a fish that you haven't heard of before. Don't let it stop you. If I only go to one restaurant in Charleston it would be Fig. I have eaten there twice and everyone agreed it... More

I have been dining here for eight years and have never even tasted a single bad bite. From the Trotters to the Triggerfish you know you are in for a treat anytime you walk through these doors. Chef Mike Lata and Adam Nemirow really created a restaurant that is built to last. Chef Jason Stanhope and his team have continued... More

Excellent restaurant with a well-known chef who helped make Charleston a good stop for foodies. Although sophisticated and fresh, the food speaks for itself, which means that the chef has not gone in for the over preparation that has become so popular of late. Low country dishes predominate. Noise level tolerable. Service fine. Would certainly eat here again.
