Wonderful Food/ Nice to Sit Outside

Usually we go for lunch which is fantastic. Best risotto anywhere in USA!! Also, many other items on menu and all are superb. Inside can get a little crowded and noisy so sit outside if available.

Chicken is boring right? But this was the best chicken breast I have had - possibly ever. Tender, not over-cooked, great flavor, crispy skin, with a perfect sauce - very well done. Roasted beet salad also very good. Recommended.

We popped into Fig early August 2015 for lunch and were lucky to snag a table without a reservation.(reservations recommended). Sat outside in nice courtyard. We ordered the Duck confit salad and a cold soup that was excellent. Also shared the Mac and cheese made with Gruyere and cheddar.. Service was great even when restaurant was filled to capacity. Loved... More

I'm not sure if it was the owner or manager who greeted my daughter and I, but we were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. We chose to dine outside and had the Reuben sandwich, the soup of the day (vichyssoise) and the risotto. The soup was a disappointment (watery and lacking flavor), but everything else was... More

Got seated immediately. They have a limited lunch menu but our food was very good. My wife & I shared the risotto & chicken schnitzel. Our waiter was very good. We would go back again if in the area.

When the fellow from the brewery across the street said there was a restaurant here we were skeptical. Good thing we persisted with finding it!!! Had one of the best meals ever. The staff was incredibly helpful with our personal quirks and the chefs outdid themselves. We recommend FIG to anyone who is visiting Asheville!! It was a night ---and... More

Hubby and I stopped here for lunch. A very small but cozy place. Host was veryyyy pleasant and kind. Waiter very nice. We are vegetarian and the waiter said most items could be made to accommodate us. Hubby and I shared an egg salad sandwich and Mac and cheese. Sandwich is normally served with salmon which they kept off. Mac... More

This is a great place to get outstanding food. You'll miss it if you don't see the big white letters "FIG" on the window. They have a nice menu with a good selection of items to choose from. The price is very reasonable for the high quality food probided. We loved it so much that we were trading bites with... More

I chose fig for my birthday dinner while we were staying at a nearby B&B. The food was excellent and the service great. Their ceasar salad was wonderful, not too much dressing, and I enjoyed the addition of bacon. Croutons weren't too big like at some other places. I had the salmon which was excellent. My wife had soup and... More
