“FIG Restaurant”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

This restaurant in Downtown Charleston is truly a gem, and is a cross between a casual neighborhood restaurant and an upscale bistro, with a few retro touches thrown in for good measure. The moody and fun atmosphere (complemented by awesome music) only eccentuate the stellar food being produced: every dish is inventive, fresh, and most importantly, delicious.

“FIG: Not Worth It!”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

FIG is not a bad restaurant, it is just not worth the price. The food is good, but not especially good. In fact, it is quite ordinary. Right from the begiining, there was nothing special about this place. Was there anything complimentary placed on the table for us as starters? No. I always feel that's the restaurant's way of saying "thank you" for coming. The bread (served by the slice and not a basket on the table) was nothing out of the ordinary (and definitely not cornbread or a biscuit). My wife and I had fish and if it was "fresh," it didn't taste like it nor was there anything special about it. The side vegetables we ordered were simply plopped on a
bowl. In fact, the presentation of the food was definitely neither upscale nor award-winning. You can do better in Charleston and pay much less. For example, go to Poogan's Porch instead.

“Food Is Good”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Food Is Good! Prices have gotten a bit high though, but it's the one place where price doesn't matter to us!

“Exceptional dining experience!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

So far above the ordinary as to be nearly incomparable. The food is wonderfully different and imaginative and totally delicious. The service is impeccable. The wine list is up to speed and the desserts are sublime! Nothing more need be said.
