    Fine dining at its best. The restaurant the Fig Tree is housed in a lovely and well-appointed building in which it easy to feel at home. We were seated promptly, and well served by Jack, who made us feel very welcome and made thoughtful recommendations with regard to our food and beverage selections. I chose the sea bass, while my wife enjoyed the excellent trout. Both of our meals were beautifully prepared and presented, and we finished off the evening with a delectable pavlova and cappuccino. All-and-all, an outstanding evening!

    Hidden gem in CLT!!!!! The duck breast and sea bass were TOP TIER! Excellent, professional service. Super cozy, quiet atmosphere (so if you like to talk and get hype, probably not the best place for that lol).

    Very nice anniversary dinner. Service was great and done right. You can actually carry on a quite conversation at Fig Tree as opposed to most places these days which ate loud and have terrible acoustics. Overall first class! Highly recommend it.

    Carrie (hostess) is so gracious and lovely. Dillon (our server) was patient, funny and made excellent suggestions. Everything was perfect as we’ve come to expect of the Fig Tree (and it never disappoints). Thank you for a memorable evening with delicious food and wine.

    First time in Fig, great service by Dillon. Excellent recommendations. We had escargot and clams. Escargot was delish. I had the elk chop, delish, maybe slightly undercooked but still tasty. The spatzel had no flavor. The strawberry cheesecake was perfecifon. Had the Caesar salad which was good as well. The restaurant is soooo quiet you almost want to whisper at your table as they are so close to other tables. I’d say at some music and speakers to help put folks at ease. Overall good meal!

    Excellent birthday dinner. I had the Wagyu steak special. It was good but not sure it was as good for a $90+ steak. It was overwhelmed with sauté toppings, taking a bit away from the natural flavor of the meat. Still was a good cut, but wished it was cooked a bit simpler. Other than that, great drinks, appetizers and food.

    The wait staff are attentive and professional. The ambiance is classy and romantic. The food is great. The dessert is great with one exception. If you’re saying roasted pear, one would assume a roasted pear. Not half a pear for $13-ish and a pile of slivered almonds. Overall, a lovely place for date night or business dinner.

    This establishment is consistently ranked as a top contender for the best dining in Charlotte with very good reason. Fois Gras with pork belly, oysters prepared three ways, Dover Sole and Sea Bass all exceeded our expectations, which were high to begin with. An expensive meal more than well worth the investment. Bravo!!!

    We have been looking for our go to restaurant since moving here last year. I am happy to say this is it! Everything was fantastic! Such a cool location in a beautiful house. Reminds me of some great restaurants back home in Chicago. Our server Rich was on point and didn't skip a beat. We look forward to dining here again and bringing friends and family when they visit. Well done!

    For a special occasion (no budget) Fig Tree is definitely the perfect place. Arrive hungry if planning to sample from different courses as nothing will remain on the plate (delicious). Drink menu is nearly limitless

    We’ve never been disappointed at Fig Tree. The Sea Bass is the best we’ve ever had anywhere. But leave room for the Beignets - soooo good! The service is always excellent (thank you, Brandon). The wine/drink list is phenomenal. Truly one of our favorite places in Charlotte.

    Appetizers were excellent escargot and octopus the entrees, the Halibut special risotto was gummy, asparagus was so over cooked it should never have been served, fish also over cooked. Lamb entree the lamb was beautiful piece of meet and cooked well but everything it was served and seasoned with over powered and did not enjoy. For the price the expectations are high and this did not deliver.

    The food and service were amazing! We had the Apple beggar’s purse as an appetizer, I had the mushroom bisque with the sea bass and lobster entree, my husband had a Caesar salad with the elk entree, and we shared the beignets for dessert. Everything was incredible except the Caesar salad (it seemed like it had no dressing on it-I’m sure if we had asked they would have supplied us with more, but we did not bother). I was on the fence about getting beignets because it seemed like a boring choice, but they were so delicious and they come with a side of the best coffee icecream I’ve had in my life! It was a timelessly classic environment, and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more!
