There wasn't a false note in this resplendent meal! From the superb service to the decadent dessert, this was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! It's hard to recommend one dish because everything we ate was flawless. Do not miss this gem!

You have to call a month in advance to be sure you get reservation on the date and time of your preference. We arrived a bit early. We had a lovely cocktails at the bar. The old Fashion was perfect. I had cocktail with old grand dad. It was lovely. The bartender mixes the drinks in a glass pitcher. We... More

Knowing that FIG is booked weeks/months in advance, my wife and I decided to stop in anyway and have a drink at the bar. The hostesses were very nice and friendly (absolutely none of the attitude so common in trendy restaurants) and said they could work something out for us to eat there either at the bar or their "community...

When visiting my sister tried to get a reservation, but no go, so we took a chance and figured where it was the two of us the worst that would happen is we could sit at the bar. Just so happened to be two seats at the Community table and we would in! What a wonderful experience meeting people from... More

We had a lovely dinner at FIG with second to none service & delicious food. Our waiter was very knowledgable & helped us to choose our food & wine. We had the suckling pig & it was delicious. Hjghly recommended if you visit Charlston, but make sure you book first.

I went the night after the 2015 James Beard Awards were announced--and Jason Stanhope won Best Chef Southeast. I knew that he was in the running, so I was ecstatic to get the last seat at the bar when I arrived around 5:15pm. The atmosphere was buzzing and the bartender and my fellow diners were friendly--but the food was the... More

The gnocchi is unlike any gnocchi we've ever had...like little clouds in a yummy sauce. The softshell crab & spaghetti had us moaning with delight. The appetizer servings were so large that we were almost full, but we all enjoyed our fresh fish main courses. Service was impeccable. The only negative for us was that it is loud (common most...

The bread they brought to the table was cold and a bit hard but the flavor was nice. We ordered three appetizers and one entree. The appetizers weren't bad- soft shell crab spaghetti was at the end of the season but very good, the duck egg was delicious and the cold veggie salad was fine. The food did take a... More
