The food was outstanding. I particularly loved the lightly battered and fried brown shrimp. My wife and mother loved the FIG staple - Gnocchi. The vegetable plate appertizer was also delicious. The amberjack was cooked perfectly. My father has to have a no fat diet, and he missed out on a few things but I was impressed with how they were able to accommodate him with seemingly no impact on the dishes taste. The service was top notch, our server was extremely knowledgeable about the entire menu - to include the drink and wine menu. I highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going again next time I'm in Charleston.
My husband and I ate at FIG years ago when they first opened and then several years ago...we have tried several times since those 2 previous 2 times to get a reservation while visiting Charleston and have been unable to do so....we were able to get a reservation this trip at 5:15pm..we were looking forward to a terrific dining experience based on our previous 2 dining occasions. The ambiance is pleasant...Our server was extremely attentive and helpful...answering our menu questions with much knowledge but I was disappointed in our meal ....the bread, 2 types offered.....a sour dough and a multigrain with seeds...both were very dry. I recall when they first opened the menu seemed so low country with delicious soups offered and terrific vegetable sides...one can never please every one with menu selections but it just seems as if the menu tried to hard to be too clever. with much wordy food descripton..sometimes it is okay to be on the more everyday ordinary side if the food is absolutely over the top delicious!....there is so much competition in today's restaurants that it seems each is trying to outdo the other in describing the menu item or offering....the restaurant is always highly rated with glowing reviews...maybe it was an off night when we were there...there are many restaurants in Charleston to choose from so I will keep testing and enjoying but it will be quite a while before I re-visit FIG.
One of my favorites since it opened.. Softshell crab was out of this world, escarole salad was delicious, Salmon poached in olive oil was best salmon I have ever had. Service was awesome. Sorghum cake and decaffinated affogato was perfect finish to an incredible meal.
Our food was fantastic. The ricotta gnocchi is always fantastic. My fish stew was also outstanding. Out only issue was our server she was very curt and rude. Would not let us order appetizers at the same time as drinks. She was surly the entire meal and ruined the experience . I will not be completely deterred by one bad server but I will be sitting at the bar next time.
