Lovely Brunch!

We go as often as possible. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is amazing. I particularly love the Macaroni Gratin which changes seasonally.

We visited Fig last night for a friend's birthday party, and it was great. Service was attentive and the server was knowledgeable about food and wine, and chef able to make accommodations for vegetarians. My favorite part of the meal (as usual) was dessert and we had banana cake with peanut butter mousse and chocolate sauce. OMG that was fantastic.... More

Our first choice for lunch had a 30 minute wait. One of the locals waiting for a table recommended Fig Bistro. Very pleased with his recommendation. I had the egg salad sandwich. Take an everyday sandwich and add some salmon on outrageously good rye toast and you end up with a special lunch. My sister had the caesar salad with... More

I just left Fig Bistro. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Small menu, but very tasty. The mint and pea soup was perfect on a summer day. The mussels had a nice "kick" in flavor. Other highlights; bread pudding, duck confit salad, risotto. Small venue. Better for adults.

We had lunch while on a Girls' Weekend to Asheville with the focus on food and spa time. Parking is adjacent to the building and we were able to be seated immediately on a Saturday at about 1. I had the soup and sandwich special. The soup was cool and refreshing --a creamy zucchini gazpacho with basil olive oil (I... More

Fig is my favorite lunch spot, and is becoming my favorite dinner choice as well. With a bright but elegant small dining space and a nice courtyard for warmer weather, it's a nice change from downtown to go down to Biltmore Village. And you can find parking. Great service, relaxed, and refined. This is the only place I've found real... More

So many positives here - the service: excellent. Promptness on order taking/drink delivery/food service: excellent. Wine list - SURPRISING, and a nice find! Many excellent European wines to be found here. The food: very good. My wife's mussels were excellent - my chicken schnitzel dish - a bit tough/overcooked [but excellent flavors]. Portions were very generous [the truffle/parmesan frites was... More

We stopped to have lunch here on a Tuesday afternoon and it was delightful. They have a cute little patio and the inside is small but quaint. I had a chilled pea soup that was outstanding and quiche that was fluffy and delicious. The menu isn't huge but who needs so many choices when the food is so good? Give... More

Fig is a terrific value in a terrific location. I always start lunch with one of their special Bloody Marys. Celery Salad is also great, and the Macaroni and Cheese is in a class by itself.
