Very much enjoyed my dinner at FIG, from the cocktail to the coffee (well, OK, I had tea this time, but they have a great tea selection!). Server was wonderful, food thoughtful, different and SO tasty. I might have liked slightly more light, but that would be my one and only negative. In general it was a really wonderful event....

We have been visiting Charleston for many years now, and we always make it a point to eat at FIG. It does'nt matter if we're staying in Charleston (at the Indigo Inn right next door) or on Isle of Palms, we don't think our visit is complete without eating at FIG. Bear in mind that reservations are sometimes difficult to... More

Started off a little shaky. The restaurant was too warm when we entered and our server didn't crack a smile for awhile but it got a lot better fast. The cocktails were perfection and the Cabernet was very nice. My suckling pig dish was the best pork dish I have ever eaten! Our party of four exchanged tastes and all... More

had another classic meal with friends in town from New York. What I can day is this... food at Fig is consistently outstanding. Such a treat to dine there, and always the right place to set the pace for out of town guests.

Here's the 1,2,3s... 1. There's a reason Jason Stanhope won the James Beard Award...his innovation and meticulousness to his food really stands out when you see and taste his work. 2. Fabulous space with very attentive and knowledgable waitstaff. They are well trained in the wine and food as well as how to make you feel special. 3. At all... More

Firstly, I have to commend the staff and service of this restaurant. Everyone handled themselves with top-notch service. The cocktails were professionally and flavorful. Now to the food. I was underwhelmed with the flavors of the food ordered. The app was raw bay scallops with radish. The presentation was great with melted butter poured over top table side. But the... More

My Wife were in Charleston on biz and play and always love to stay downtown when visiting. We had been hearing that FIG (Food is Good) Restaurant was the place now to eat, and now I know why! This Restaurant is a little different.. In the fact you must make reservations,(always room at the bar if you don't make them)... More

An excellent and friendly restaurant next to the Indigo Inn in the historic centre of Charleston. If you are solo you can sit at the counter and meet people! Good food; might be sensible to book as it gets very busy

One of our best meals. Eggplant and cottage cheese to start was so good. I had the triggerfish with beets and fennel and it was fabulous. My husband had the wreckfish and it was fabulous as well. Great atmosphere and excellent service. Highly, highly recommend.

So we finally get to go to FIG, which has been on our list for a very long time. What a great restaurant. Our server, Drew was fantastic! Customer service Excellence. We started with the Ricotta Gnocchi with Lamb Bolognese...out of this world good! This is a must do dish. The little pillowy pockets just melt in your mouth. My... More
