Ok I will just get to the highlights of our dinner at this restaurant. We started off with the pork belly as our appetizer. The wife said it was perfect with the loose leaf mint tea she was having. It was delicious and whetted out appetites for the next course which was a chopped beet salad. You could taste the... More

We did not make a reservation and had to wait about 30 mins. So we recommend that you do. Hard working staff, all helping each other. Very small place, but comfortable with fun view of Biltmore Villiage. Husband had the Reuben and he enjoyed it. I had the Egg salad with smoked salmon sandwich and fries. It was way better... More

What has happened to Fig Bistro? Fig used to be one of our favorite Asheville places, especially for the steak frites and mussels. We hadn’t been there in a while, and when we back recently for our 6:30 reservation, we were the only customers in the restaurant. Eventually, seven other people did arrive, with a total of four table occupied,... More

My wife and I ate at Fig Bistro on new years day. We were making a last ditch effort to find a reservation while driving around Asheville at 7:00pm. After calling around and checking out reviews on Trip Advisor, we got someone who was nice enough to try to fit us in on a short notice. Its located in Biltmore... More

Typically, gems are small and delightful. These adjectives describe the Fig very well. With a capacity of ~30, it is intimate. The food we had was generally very good and the service was excellent. It is well worth many return trips. Its location is ideal for visitors to the Biltmore village... but don't make dining here a "last minute decision,"... More

Lunch today was exceptional. Every one enjoyed their meal enormously but I write particularly about the Risotto with leeks, mushrooms, truffle oiland then drizzled with parsley oil! Heavenly.

Four of us were in town last weekend staying at the Biltmore Inn. I had the responsibility for finding somewhere for us to eat at basically the last minute. With it being the holidays AND Saturday night, I was concerned and was not finding any openings. I read about Fig here and gave them a call and made a reservation.... More

Four of us went and had a great time and excellent food. Very comfortable with professional non stuffy and helpful service. Very enjoyable experience. This was not our first and will not be the last.
