FIG stands for Food Is Good. At FIG FIO--the fare is outstanding. FIG is the quintessential "local." Owners Tracy and Travis have created an atmosphere of casual sophistication, outstanding menus with superb, subtle and unpretentious flavors. A destination for locals in "the know." The patron is welcomed and served by friendly, intelligent and proficient staff. For me, it is and... More

Cute Bistro with easy (pay) parking in adjacent lot. Outdoor seating around a shared commons area (multi tenant shopping building). The outdoor seating is in an inner courtyard and works well. Small and intimate inside, maybe a bit close, but it did not bother us. Good selection and some unusual items (I had sheepshead fish which i do not see... More

The food and service were fantastic!!! The menu is small, but everyone loved what they ordered! The Risotto, Sirloin, Farfalle, Truffle fries and desserts were SO delicious!!! We had great service also. The restaurant is teeny and fairly sterile, but the food more than made up for that!!!

We had an afternoon getaway in Asheville and went for early dinner at Fig Bistro. It may not be a fine linen establishment, but the service is very good, and the food ranks with any fine dining establishment. We tried the port belly, risotto and duck breast. Each was an exceptional experience. While the wine list is not extensive, it... More

I have eaten at this restaurant on several occasions and every single time I leave I am blown away at how delicious it is. The Farfalle Bolognese is my absolute favorite dish. My husband has had the burger with goat cheese with fries which he let me sample and it was perfectly grilled. The Pot de Crème is out of... More

We had our twentieth meal--give or take a few--at Fig last night. We are locals; have no connection to the owners other than ongoing appreciation. But we, like other locals, always get a hearty laugh at the "top ten" list on TripAdvisor. Some of those establishments are good, but some ... how in the world to they get in the... More

This is the best meal we have had in Asheville. Creative, fresh and delicious. Salad, thick Chilean salmon, creative Fuji Apple dessert. All delicious, attractive and with good service.

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon, and sat on the patio. I had delicious soup and a salad. My husband had the duck confit salad. Delicious wine to accompany the meal, and I quickly made friends with two Asheville residents sitting next to us. The staff were welcoming and made us feel right at home.

As you enter the restaurant, it is a completely relaxing atmosphere, and you immediately are greeted and relax as you take your seat. The menu is an eclectic blend of choices, something for everyone - meats, cheeses, vegan, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed the veggie plate with couscous, and veggies...it was delightful. Nicoise olives, and a dressing that was very delicious.... More
