Despite the note from Yelp that Fig was closed on Sundays, we saw that people were eating there Sunday afternoon, so we ventured in. It turns out they are, indeed, closed for Sunday dinner. The late brunch we had was delicious and the service was efficient and very friendly. I had the pork cutlet served on a wonderful salad of... More

The fig is loud. The menu is small. The wine list gets switched. South African wine appears as a substitute for the wine they just ran out of.

Fig rocks! The food is AMAZING! I've yet to have anything that wasn't absolutely delicious! My personal favorite is anything made with their "preserved lemons". Oh wow! What flavor! And as they alternate their menus, they generally have various dishes with a sauce made from this little delicacy! We live in TN but travel over to Biltmore Village just to... More

We chose Fig because of the reviews and its proximity to our hotel ( The Inn at Biltmore). I'm so glad that we did. It's in a nondescript building and the entrance is at the back but everything about it is appealing. We had a 730 reservation and the hostess told us that the guests at our table were just... More

Folks, this place is NOT to be missed. Sort of an odd location in Biltmore Village but food is incredible. Truffle fries and watermelon salad for appetizers. Watermelon salad was served with sheep's cheese, arugula and a jalapeno glaze. Sounds rather odd but your palate will not be sorry. Menu changes so these may not still be on the list... More

While we were disappointed when a wine, a dessert, and an entree were sold out or not available, what we had was delist. The duck confit salad was yummy and the tuna tartare was the perfect compliment of cool, spicy and fresh. The PEI mussels were well cooked and the broth was tasty. Not enough dessert options.

My husband and I have visited The Fig Bistro many times for lunch and every time it has been a great experience. If there are no tables available, try the bar seating - fun to watch the staff who are very friendly.

I am so thrilled that I discovered a new “must eat here” restaurant to add to my list. Asheville is an amazing destination where spirited art and a creative vibe flow seamlessly to the canvas or the kitchen. Fig Bistro is one of those lively restaurants where the chef’s palette creates unbelievable magic on my palate. The setting inside is... More

While trendy, Fig is not especially typical. We had a late lunch and wife had the salmon. I chose Pork schnitzel with cannelini beans, kale and sherry jus. Not my normal fried chicken meal. Service was extremely good and food arrived at the table fresh and piping hot. We had choice of Dining on the terrace or inside. Have had... More
