It has become a used to be. It used to be a great restaurant with ambience and amazing food. Now the food is a step up from needing a take out bag and is so loud its like a stadium. We were there recently and a table of 14 was making everyone else in the restaurant uncomfortable. When asked, the owner said there was nothing he could do, it was a table of 14. That translates loosely to " they are 14 people ordering French fries and I hope enough beer to make more than the tables of 2". The food was so so at best. My dinner friend got ill after the appetizer. Between the appetizer and the yelling, French fry, beer drinking table of 14, we left. Neither of us will ever return. This restaurant is no longer worth the trouble it takes to start the car.

I live in Virginia, so I am not a local, but I quickly learned just how magnificent the food is at FIG when it opened a few years ago. Now, I always have dinner at FIG when I am in Asheville and always end up saying, ""This is the best food I have ever eaten."" Chef Klein has truly proven that common stigmas associated with french food can be replaced by superlatives. Portions are adequate, presentation is pleasing, sauces are not overdone nor overpowering, courses are creative and harmonious and, most importantly, the food is cooked to perfection. Completing the experience are excellent service and a chic, relaxing, intimate setting. In a word, FIG is perfection. You will love it!
