Diner Reviews
  • "This is the best place in Charlotte for fine dining. I have never been let down. Still #1 on my go to restaurant."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Delicious meal! One of my favorite places in Charlotte."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "What a great find this place was. A unique dining experience in a historic house, this restaurant has a lot to offer. It's small, intimate dining area is perfect for a romantic special occasion or a small group. Service was spot-on. All of the entrees looked great, and i was able to sample 3 (of those sitting with me) and they were all fantastic. Will definitely visit again next time in the Charlotte area. Only a 5 min cab ride from downtown and worth it."

  • "Food and presentation were great. Zak our waiter did a great job, very friendly, took time to talk. His recommendations were also right on. A bit pricey, but worth it in an era were mediocrity and making a buck reign."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I have a tendency to go back and look at my reviews and find that I had been a little generous with them. That will not happen here! This meal was the best one that we have had in Charlotte. The only negative was the thunderstorm that hit once we pulled into the parking lot making our short walk a little wet. This is the quintessential special place to go with your wife, significant other or just to enjoy a great meal with great friends."

  • "The wine list, great. The service, very good. The food, ambitious but it could have used more attention to detail. Our apps were great, scallop and foie gras and the combinations were nice. The entrees were nice but I wouldnt serve lamb this time of year. The veal was good but the shrimp added nothing to the dish but food cost. The filet was a classic and done well. The elk, new one on me and it was great however the spatzle was oily and had no sear. Classic spatzle should have a crust. Anyway we have enjoyed meals in the best restaurants in the world and this one is a gem but could easily be taken to the next level with more tasting and discriminating in the kitchen. Rich was great and very helpful. A bit further and fig could be perfect."

  • "Everything about tThe Fig Tree is exceptional, the food, the ambience, the wine list, the service and their overall hospitality. This, and always has been, our "go to" restaurant."

  • "Limited menu but excellent oferings. Food quite tasty and well presented. Service friendly and competent but a little slow. Parking is a challange."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Been going here for years on special occasions and have never been disappointed. We had the Grouper this time and the Veal Chop. The fish was excellent as always and the Veal was good, though a tad under cooked. The smashed potatoes as a side were perfect. I like their seafood most of all. We will go back, we love it here."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "First off the dining area was spacious and the overall look of the older residence was well kept. The selection of entrees was limited but covered a nice variety of dishes. The scallop dish was to die for! We chose to try the cheese appetizer plate to begin our meal. The various cheeses gave us a taste of many different types of cheeses accompanied with fruit, nuts and crackers. Service was top notch. Our server, Zack, was very personable and made our dining experience very enjoyable. We would certainly ask for him when we come again."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Fig Tree. Our first was perfect in nearly every way. This time was a let-down. We were seated in a small dining room occupied by loud and rowdy guests, which put a damper on our romantic dinner. My entree, a beautiful filet, was completely overpowered with stilton and I had to abandon the dish halfway through. Most notably, though, was that I mentioned in my reservation that I have Celiac disease and must maintain a strict gluten-free diet. I was well taken care of on my last visit, but this time, our server kept giving me bread and suggesting cake for dessert. He remembered my boyfriend's birthday but not my dietary restrictions, which are arguably more important for a server to remember. Overall, disappointed."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary meal at Fig Tree. The food was excellent, the service was great, and dining on the front porch was very enjoyable. We highly recommend Fig Tree for your next special occasion, and will be back for ours."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary here and I had high expectations due to previous reviews. Needless to say, all of those expectations were met and then some. Great, friendly staff. More than willing to go the extra mile whether in conversation or advice on the menu. The food was incredibly tasty! I had the elk and her the veal as our main courses and neither of us left hungry. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to try something new in Charlotte."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I have been to Fig Tree multiple times and it only gets better. Excellently prepared sauces, meats, cheeses, risotto, salad dressings and desserts. The only downside is not a lot of privacy because of the cozy environment. Expect everyone in the room to hear everything you discuss unless you have a private room, but the food does not get much better in Charlotte or elsewhere."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "With combination of excellence in food quality and preparation, wine list, service, and ambience, this was the best dining experience that I experienced in Charlotte since Nobles closed. It far surpasses the "steak chain restaurants" and had a more extensive menu than some of the smaller "foodie" restaurants. It was at the high end on price but well worth it!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We absolutely enjoyed our Father's Day meal. Beautifully served and great presentations. I had the lobster and grouper. My wife the special salmon and our guests both had another fish. It escapes me now what it was. But everything was great. I would stack this place up against any restaurant anyplace in terms of quality and creativity of presentation. Nothing pretentious or ill matched. Just great tasting food. My grouper for example sat on a bed of saffron flavored risotto wonderfully prepared, firm and not too much a flavor to overwhelm thAt gorgeous and rather hefty piece of grouper they gave me. Gotta give this place my highest rating because everything rocked. Great wine list as well! They opened my wine ahead for me!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Homemade focaccia bread with puréed roasted garlic- delicious. Choice of salad with main course with a small up charge for Caesar - yeah! Warm beignets with coffee ice cream- perfect. Staff- professional & pleasant. Request first floor seating if you need it- when making a reservation- or you may be seated upstairs."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "As always, our Fig Tree experience was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious, the wine was fabulous, and the service impeccable. It is by far my favorite Charlotte restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "For us a special place for special occasions. Our waiter of choice was most professional as well as friendly, the food was outstanding as well as the wine. can't wait to go again."

  • "It was my wife's b'day and I wanted to take her to a nice restaurant and google gave me options like Lynch, Fig Tree, Blue as some of the good romantic restaurant in Charlotte and I decided to try Fig Tree. SATISFIED COMPLETELY. They have a very large wine and champagne list and I am no good at selecting wines so we just ordered some Champagne. We loved every item that we ordered, the portobello mushroom appetizer, the soup of the day mushroom bisque, my lamp chops, wife's crab cake, the house salad, and to top it all the 7 layer Choco cake wishing my wife for her b'day. The server was very friendly and explained very nicely about the food items. We would love to go back again. "

  • "Great service & great food - perfect special occasion restaurant. Try the icewine & beignets!!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This is an excellent restaurant for those who seek a unique dining experience with a focus upon the quality of both the food and the environment. The staff is most accommodating and responsive. The restaurant "used" the historic Lucas House as an ideal location for dinner. As this location is relatively small, dinner guests at a "loud" neighboring table can become a distraction. The food and service, though, will make such an issue one that can be ignored/tolerated. "

  • "Gig Tree hits the mark on every aspect of dining! Menu and specials were creative while maintaining regional ingredients, their wine list is amazing and service outstanding. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Once again, Fig Tree completely satified everyone at dinner. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed every course. Our starters included truly excellent escargots, mushroom bisque, an outstanding cheese board, and very nice house salads. The veal chop is reliably very well prepared and the cheesy, bacony potatoes accompanying the veal chop may have been the best I've had in years. The pork chop, NC mountain trout, and pasta mains were also extremely good. When you finish with beignets, it's hard to imagine how the evening could have been better."

  • "This is my second visit to The Fig Tree and it has been outstanding both times. This time was for a retirement dinner. We enjoyed dinner in a private room upstairs and it was lovely. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. Nicole, our server, was a tremendous help in making suggestions and steering us in the right direction. Bravo to The Fig Tree. I don't live in Charlotte but will be sure to return to this restaurant whenever I visit."

  • "I chose this venue for my wife's 35th b'day dinner after passing it uncountable times, but more importantly hearing the rave reviews from numerous sources. The Fig Tree did not disappoint. Service was impeccable - friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. What more could you ask for? The food was amazing. Starters were the scallops and the escargots - both delicious - but what shone even brighter was the homemade bread with slow-roasted garlic spread. Amazing. Entrees were the filet for the wife and elk chops for me. The elk is a must order. Portions are large. The chocolate cake was phenomenal. I can't say enough great things about this place...clearly one of the best dining venues in Charlotte"

  • "Our experience was positive at The Fig Tree. The food choices were varied and different, just what we wanted for our experience. Although, my scallop dish was overly salty and had to be returned, the server & manager were attentive and were anxious to do what they could to improve my meal. We would go back! "
