FIG is a neighborhood eatery located in the heart of downtown Charleston, serving seasonally-inspired cuisine with a commitment to using local and sustainable foods.
Suckling pork confit is melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
By far one of the best restaurants in the low country. Menu changes daily depending on what's available locally.
Get the ricotta gnocci
A wonderful selection of fresh seafood and veggies that is constantly evolving.
Most amazing gnocchi I've ever had!
Everything we had was fantastic and our waiter was awesome. He paired each dish with amazing wines. Delicious! Highly recommend FIG!
The Razor Clam Ceviche served here is mind-blowing.
Fresh loveliness in every bite
the ricotta gnocchi is to die for!!! my lorddddd!
Super knowledgeable and friendly service. Eat an appetizer if you must, but FIG wins with cocktails and that fantastic grouper!
The gnocchi will change your life.
Meh. As a big foodie, so disappointed. Didn't even bother with dessert because I didn't want to be disappointed again.
The fish stew and amberjack entrees are to die for; end the meal with a shot of espresso and the sticky sorghum cake!
We dream about the Chicken Liver Mousse and the Coddled Egg!
Tomato tarte tatin and gnocchi with bolognese - delicious!!
FIG was absolutely fantastic. We managed to snag seats at the bar and were treated to and delighted by the Andrew and Ashley show. Outstanding food and drinks. A must for locals and visitors alike.
One of our favorites. Always fresh and local.
I'll never go back. I've been a regular here for a while. The manager Dana was VERY rude. She doesn't appreciate loyal customers!! She would not let my pregnant friend have a seat, etc. NEVER AGAIN!!
I had the oysters for an app, then scrumptious Tilefish with brussel sprouts n carrots, then oysters for dessert!
The Capers Blades Oysters on the half shell are ridiculously good!
Ricotta gnocchi with lamb bolognese, little pillows of joy. Pate was the best I've ever had!
Triggerfish was delicious, and so was the gnocchi.
The counter is very solo diner friendly, & there's a bar space where you can wait for a counter/table seat. Solid cocktails.
so delicious! If tomatoes are in season don't miss the tomato terrine! Great dinner and dessert
Try the Banana Bread Amaretto Ice Cream, Brown Sugar Caramel
Try the Honeycrisp Apple And Hazelnut Tart
Try the Mustard Crusted Jumbo Flounder
Try the Sautéed John Dory
Try the Salad Of Young Arugula Arbequina Olive Oil, Parmesan
Try the Ricotta Gnocchi And Border Springs Farm Lamb Bolognese
If you're only going to have one meal in Charleston, this is where to get it. There's a full menu and amazing service at the bar, so if you can't get a table, try anyway and grab a seat at the bar.
Un...believable. Get as many small plates as you can and finish with any of the desserts! Always, always good!
Gnocchi or tomato tartin are excellent choices.
Chicken liver pâté. Amazing. Also the chocolate sea salt caramel mousse. To die for.
The ricotta gnocchi are some of the best I've ever had. wow.
Watch out for her
I travel frequently & look for restaurants with a rotating menu based on what is available locally and by far FIG is the best I have found to date. One this trip the Ricotta Gnocchi were the BOMB!
No reservations. Get here super early for a table. Minimum 90 minute wait at 8pm.
Difficult to get a reservation but they take walk ins at the bar and community table. Come early or be prepared to wait...
Sorghum cake is the best thing you will ever put in your mouth!
Try the Tartare Of Jumbo Flounder - Superb!
From #TLSponChat: “@hampdenclothing: With culinary scene exploding in #chs it’s impossible not to enjoy yourself. Fig is a must.”
The menu is driven by what is local and available, and the vegetables tend to be the stars of the plate. [Eater 18 Member]
The menu is different every day with the exception of a few staples. Always delicious and wonderful staff!
