    This is my second time at The fig tree. The service is impeccable the servers are very helpful. Not only are they helpful but they make sure everything is clean. The food is amazing the deserts are even better. Overall it is a great experience especially for a date. The lights are dim and ever feels cozy yet fancy. I will definitely go again.

    This old school fine-dining restaurant gave us a perfect experience from start to finish. Professional and attentive service, and divine food! I had the elk entree w/ elk sausage and braised red cabbage, and thoroughly enjoyed every savory bite (and I'd never had elk before). My partner had the filet mignon and it was buttery perfection. Both entrees came with a perfectly tossed side salad and house made focaccia bread with roasted garlic purée to start (drool). I truly enjoy when a upscale restaurant includes salad and bread rather than making you pay for them separately. The beignets for dessert were heavenly. Visit the Fig Tree, you won't be disappointed!

    The only complaint was the food was not hot (we ordered the duck breast and elk chop). The duck breast was cold and the elk was just warm. Tasted delicious regardless, but not a good serving temp.

    We went to Fig Tree on a Saturday night for my birthday. It's been a while since we were there, but their online menu looked interesting and they had a nice selection of wine that included European wines. Somehow, that is hard to find in Charlotte restaurants. It was nice that the online menu matched up with the hardcopy in the restaurant. We both had the Foie Gras as an appetizer. Wonderful-both savory and sweet. I had the Elk Chop and my husband had the Sea Bass and we were pleased with both. Mixed Green Salads come with the mains, but you also have a decent amount of sides, too. Way more than I could eat! Service was timely and very good. We did not feel rushed, but they did have a steady crowd of diners. All in all, a very nice experience and we look forward to returning!

    Wonderful resturant and service with a smile. Be careful the portions are huge, we should have realized when the server asked if we wanted to share the starter. The Elk chop is huge so skip the starter as there is a complimentary salad before. Did not try the desserts but will be back to do that.

    Always an outstanding dining experience. It's our go-to restaurant for special occasions, and every dish was delicious. You'll be full by the time you get to dessert :) but try the Flourless Chocolate Entremet anyway. It's a great finish to what will surely be a great meal and wonderful dining experience.

    Both main dishes we got were perfect and much larger portions than we thought we’d receive. Soup and salad were very good. Wine and cocktails were also great and they had a huge selection of wines. The only negative part was the dessert. The galette was very dry and difficult to cut into with a fork. The ice cream was delicious and wish we had more of that to eat with the dry pastry. Service was excellent.

    We had a delicious meal at the Fig Tree in a festive atmosphere for the holidays. We both had the Sea Bass with truffled mash potatoes and lobster. Our meals were prepared to perfection. Our waitress, Christy, was very attentive and friendly. We also enjoyed pumpkin mousse and cheesecake for dessert which were excellent. We will go again!

    The Fig Tree is one of our favorite places to dine in Charlotte! The food is always exquisite and the service is second to none. This past meal was no exception. I had the Elk chops and my wife had the lamb. Susie, our waitresses, exceeded expectations. You may wonder why I rated the overall experience a four vs five. It was the atmosphere. There were four small tables crammed into a room that was probably more suited for two or three at the most. There was no possibility of a private or intimate conversation. Typically, this wouldn’t be a big deal except I indicated on the reservation that we were going out for our anniversary (which they acknowledged). I was hoping for a more private/romantic seating. We’ll be back in the spring when we can sit on the patio. Still one of our favorite meals in town.

    Good visit again but an irritating miss this time: The bread was refrigerator cold. This means that it is not fresh and likely put in fridge a day or days before - no way to tell. Also, where's the butter? For as uber expensive as Figtree is, there should be fresh bread at the least - frankly, it is better to skip it if you have to pull a loaf out of the fridge.

    Service was kind of slow even though it wasn’t that packed when we got there. Our waiter was very knowledgeable but he was definitely more concerned with his other larger tables than my 2 person birthday table. Food was very good and I enjoyed my Guinea fowl very much

    First experience where food was wrong. Asked for no beacon as I don't eat meat and Risotto came with it, Noticed it when I put it in my mouth. When told waiter they offered to remake the dish, but sitting with friends and eating at different times when we were having a late dinner was not appealing. I ate other items on my plate. Restaurant did not offer anything but to remake the dish and charged full price.
