In the built more village you don't expect to find a little gem like his. Yes you expect the outlet shops and the cranky art shops but a well run and innovative bistro was a surprise. The fig has four things going for it. Firstly is fuses local ingredients and the chef knows how to use them well. Secondly the... More

Wow! This was our first meal in Asheville and it was amazing. The food, atmosphere, and service were perfect. They know how to take care of their customers. Our server was Dawn, she knew her stuff, was attentive but not in our face, and handled a small issue with my meal flawlessly.

Our first time to Asheville and thus our first dining experience in Asheville. Wanted it to be special for my wife's 30th and it was! The food was excellent (the pomme frites are a must have to start), the wine was excellent, the main course danced our our tongues. Fig is a must try!!

Erin made our meal even more special by sharing her love of Asheville. We asked a local for a restaurant recommendation before attending a concert at a nearby cathedral. His suggestion wasn't that easy to find, but once we did, we enjoyed a phenomenal meal and some wine. Located in Biltmore Village, Fig Bistro is a "must visit" dining spot.

Fig Bistro has absolutely the best quiche I've ever eaten. It is a must visit for out of town guests. Service is excellent.

First night in Asheville before the snow, went on a recommendation from friends. Enjoyed wine, appetizer and entrees as well as friendly service. Had pear salad to start, risotto and salmon for entrees. Delicious and nice portion sizes. Wish we could have gone again but the snow and weather did not cooperate. Would return to try other offerings.

Went to Fig Bistro because of reviews on Trip Advisor. I was excited to try the Mussels and Beet Salad. Imagine my disappointment when we arrived and discovered the mussels were cooked in a chipotle sauce. I can't eat spicy, so was perusing the menu for something else to order when our wonderful waitress came by and said the chef... More

I've eaten here twice and was surprised that the menu was completely different both times. It could be that once was for Sunday brunch. This is a good place to eat if you want an interesting twist on some classics.

This is my second review of Fig Bistro, but have eaten there on many occasions, and on everyone left more satisfied than the last time! It is located in a very unlikely setting, among condos, shops, and within a short distance from warehouses, etc. But don't be put off, the Fig Bistro is EXCELLENT. My favorite dish, and one I...

The first time we came, it was ladies-who-lunch time. We were pleasantly surprised by our tasty sandwiches and enjoyed chatting with the owner. The half grilled cheese and soup was really good. Nothing beats a well executed grilled cheese. The pastrami ruben with choucroute was exceptionally tasty. On our second visit (New Year's Eve) the crowd was much more varied.... More
