Outstanding!My dining experience was outstanding. Growing up in the restaurant business, I must say that I was impressed. From the hostess, to the wait staff, to the timing of plating, to presentation, temperature and taste of the food, and surprise birthday message on dessert plate. I will definitely be back and refer friends here. Though I will be a bit selfish and keep to trusted foodies who will really appreciate such a wonderful dining experience.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a fabulous dining experience.What a fabulous dining experience. Great food, excellent service, wonderful atmosphere.
Our new favorite restaurant in Charlotte!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFive stars, even for a solo diner!Fig Tree was exquisite -- fantastic food, extremely attentive and lovely service (I sat at the bar and Erika was the BEST), great wine list, and quite comfortable. I was visiting from San Francisco on a work trip and wanted a nice dinner solo, as I'm a big foodie and was missing my local haunts; I sat at the bar and really enjoyed how lively the bar area was -- Fig Tree seems perfect for parties from solo diners to groups of colleagues.
Everything I ate was wonderful, and I'd highly recommend the foie gras, the sweet potato and bell pepper soup, and the VEAL CHOP! Even the smashed potatoes that the chop was plated on were some of my favorite potatoes. 5 stars to Fig Tree -- kudos!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM30th anniversary dinnerHad a fanastic anniversary dinner sitting out on the front porch. Excellent service and excellent meal. Stayed at the Duke Mansion for a night and topped that off with this meal.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time we have been there.Second time we have been there. This time was our anniversary. Great bar service; the bartender is always at attention for your needs. We sat upstairs for the first time. There's not a bad seat in the house.
Service was great like last time. Food was cooked perfect, first time my wife has elk. But the waiter recommended it. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening. This place in a destination for any special occasion or weekend treat.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerThe food and service were great! Looking forward to going back for another special occasion!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Favorite in CharlotteHaven't always been the biggest fan of food in Charlotte. We live just a couple of blocks from Bonterra and always go there with the highest hopes, only to be let down a bit. Fig Tree fulfilled our high expectations. This will be our new special occasion restaurant.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceWould highly recommend Fig Tree- food is delicious and fresh, service awesome.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood not up to the price point.Food not up to the price point.

Lovely setting, delicious food, crisp, professional service by Jacob. We will return!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambience was great exceptThe ambience was great except for people at other tables who are loud. They don't seem to have consideration for those around them. You'd think that in such a nice restaurant people would be a little more dignified. Do restaurants need to start posting signs " Please use your inside voice"?5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for an AnniversaryThe food was delicious. Very healthy and organic. All fresh. Even the desserts were made on site and were delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. Outside dining is an amazing experience.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb fine diningAs usual, Fig Tree serves an excellent dinner, with a fine wine list, and exceptional service.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot!Now I understand why it was hard to get a reservation!

When arrived the hostess greeted her with a happy birthday, when went to our seat our waiter also greeted her in the same manner by her name. She was so excited. The meal was fabulous and the wine list was excellent. The evening was top off with her favorite desert and a candle lit. The plate had happy birthday written in chocolate. The staffs were amazing. Thanks guys for helping me impress my wife.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI dig the Fig Tree!I have had amazing food and a wonderful experience the handful of times I have been at Fig Tree. This time the food was very good but some of it was not quite at the level I've come to expect, especially the scallops. That said, Eddy Holiday was our server again and he does an incredible job at making everyone feel great. He provides top notch service and is an absolute pleasure to converse with! The hostess was fabulous as well!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive But Worth ItHard for four to eat there for under $200, but it is worth every penny. Food is amazing, and the service even better. Love the old Lucas house, so nicely refurbished.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Experience!The atmosphere of the restaurant is very comfortable and personable.
Service and Staff was very professional but not overly stuffy as in some fine dining.
Menu had a great variety with unique options. All of which was outstanding.
Wine list is large and provides a good staple for the outing.
Overall, very nice restaurant for conversation on a romantic, business or friendly outing.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Dinner with my honeyFig Tree is a wonderful little find! We enjoyed a wonderful gourmet meal and the very best service! The fois gras is a must have! I enjoyed the lamb and my boyfriend raved about the trout!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, ambianceFig Tree is a beautiful restaurant, I just wish it had been warm enough to sit outside on the porch! Food was great, if a little pricey. Our waiter, Jacob (?), was fantastic, made for a very enjoyable experience.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Real TreatI was meeting a friend for dinner and we decided to visit the Fig Tree. We were looking for a less formal setting, so we opted to have dinner at the bar. Erika, our bartender, took such good care of us even though she was quite busy making drinks for everyone!
The food was awesome. There was a great selection of wines by the glass, all reasonably priced.
I will definitely return!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best of the best.We enjoy fine dining. This restaurant was the best food and service experience that we have had in years. Everything was great. The grilled Elk chop was awesome and the filet mignon was superb. This was the first time in decades that we did not have to pour our wine even once. The servers were all top of the line.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience. GreatWonderful experience.

Nice house setting as well with front porch dining.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to FigMy wife and I went to Fig Tree to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant has a great ambiance in a converted 2-story home. The staff is top-notch and the food was delicious. The star of the evening for us were the desserts which were amazing. If you have not been this is definitely a must try for a great dining experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent every time!Fig Tree never let's us down. The food is incredible and the service is the best in town. They take such good care of me and my dietary restrictions every time we go there. The chef is so accommodating and helpful. Truly wonderful!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must Try if you Love Good FoodWe went for our anniversary. We decided to try a new restaurant for us. We made a great decision. The Fig Tree will now be on our must eat at list. I had the Elk. It was wonderful. The dessert - Cinnamon Beignets were just awesome. I am from Louisiana and it is very hard to get a really good Beignet. The Fig Tree would have me coming back just for their desserts alone but their other menu items are just as great. The waiters and staff were friendly and on top of everything without being pushy.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal ever!Best meal and service we've had, from the appetizer through dessert! Both the service and food far surpass any higher-end chain restaurant diners may be more familiar with...we highly recommend Fig Tree to anyone looking for something different and extraordinary!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI would love to go back everyday!What a lovely dinner we had at The Fig Tree. The food was to die for, the service was impeccable and the location could not have been better. We were there for about 3 hours and didn't feel rushed out. Our server, Jenny, could not have been better! It was a special occasion so we had appetizer, salad, dinner and dessert. Each dish was better then the last. The food was very rich but that probably had something to do with the fact that we ate so much! It was our anniversary and everyone made us feel special! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLast Sunday evening beforeLast Sunday evening before a concert we had dinner with another couple. We enjoyed the front porch dining as the sun was setting.
I had a wonderful, special, boar appetizer and everyone else seemed to enjoy their appetizer as well.
The main course for me was great; I had the scallops and my spouse had the lamb which was also delicious. The other couple seemed to have a little difficulty cutting the meat they got. The fillet was fine but the boar seemed tough maybe over cooked. As a result they exchanged dishes.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMKNOWLEDGEABLE WAITER AND EXCELLENTKNOWLEDGEABLE WAITER AND EXCELLENT SERVICE. THE FOOD WAS THE BEST I HAVE HAD IN CHARLOTTE.

She knew the menu front to back and was able offer wine parings based on another bottle that we really enjoy. The escargot is an absolute MUST and the filet was prepared to perfection. The meal was well paced and we did not feel rushed even though we were the last guests in the restaurant on a Wednesday evening. One should arrive early as parking can be tight.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Romantic, Elk Chop ExperienceExcellent food quality with various game selections. Food preparation, presentation is very good. The Elk chop is fantastically good. The ambiance of this converted house is very good, romantic and ideally situated near downtown Charlotte.

Best on nice nights when you can sit in its great patio!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good experienceNot our first visit to Fig Tree and as always the food and service were very good.
My only complaint on this visit was the limited menu.. Basically the choices were fish or red meat. Would have been nice to have a chicken option.
That aside we really the Fig Tree and will be back there soon.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful eveningOur third time at the restaurant. Consistent great menu, friendly staff and attentive service.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWould like to see local orWould like to see local or at least NC wines on the wine list. Excellent experience. Food was superb and service was too....thanks, Eddie!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat menu options, reallyGreat menu options, really good food. I had the lamb chop with Israeli cous cous. The lamb was amazing, but the cous cous was a little too garlicky for me and needed a little bit more flavor to it. My husband had the veal chop and it was really good. The beignets were awesome and the gelato that comes with it was amazing, my favorite.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second trip toThis was our second trip to Fig Tree and our experience was better the first time. The restaurant is a cool intimate old house and the service is perfect, as it was on our first visit. The problem this time was That the food was not up to par. One of our entrees, the striped bass was terrible. The waiter was apologetic, but made no attempt to get us something different. We had a nice time, but probably won't go back. Entrees are 45.00 to 55.00 dollars and for that kind of money there are just to many other great places to go in Charlotte that consistently roll out a great dining experience.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWowNe'er been here and I had my hopes up about this place and they were exceeded! My date and I truly enjoyed our dining expirence here! Will be going back!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
