The Fig Tree Restaurant - Charlotte, NC
Excellent meal including food, service, wine, ambiance
Service was outstanding. The food was wonderful. Not enough good words to describe this place!
Our favorite fancy restaurant! There is a different soup each time we go and it is always amazing! The bread is impossible to resist especially with the roasted garlic. The stuffed calamari and the elk chop are must haves!
exceptional service. Seth was phenomenal! The escargot are to die for. And the sea bass was the best I’ve ever had. Quiet, cozy, refined. They have outdoor dining with heat lamps when weather is permitting .
Except for the filet mignon, the food had little flavor, and was overall average. I had the feeling of a mom and pop restaurant trying to be elegant and spectacular but it didn’t work. I’ve eaten at good restaurants and I think the key is the chef. ThT may be the problem.
Our waitress Jennifer was really helpful in making some great suggestions for us. She was prompt with service and helped to make it a great night. The food was scrumptious.
Great food and experience!
The setting was nice for a business meal and would obviously be perfect for that special occasion with that special person. The service was just right and non invasive but attentive. The meal was rather good and well presented along with the suggested wine pairings.
Lovely location. Exceptional wine list. Would return.
Fig Tree is always good for a higher end dining experience. The menu is seasonal. The last few times we have been, we got four appetizers instead of ordering an entree even though the entrees are very good. The Apple Beggars Purse is a must get if it is on the menu. The escargots are great but be sure to ask to have it prepared in their gorgonzola sauce. Our waiter, Gary, gave us that tip. Dipping your bread in the leftover sauce is heaven. Our other two appetizers were Stuffed Calamari and Ravioli. These were excellent as well.
Great meal, great service! Had a great time with a great waiter.
Great food, great service
Had a wonderful experience with the Fig Tree! Had to wait at the bar for a few minutes upon arrival so they could clear a table, but the cocktails were made well and delicious. Dinner was prepared quickly, our waiter was patient and knowledgeable, and all three courses were delicious. Heavily recommend the elk!
We had another fabulous dinner at Fig Tree! We love this restaurant! The service is fantastic and the food is wonderful! Eddie was a great server! We look forward to going back soon!
Everything was amazing. It was our first time there and we will definitely be going back. The veal chop and the elk chop were delicious
Birthday dinner, great food, interesting restored house, large wine list
Mark is a great bartender.
Went with my wife for our anniversary, great service and above average food. Excellent wine list and very welcoming staff.
Natalie was excellent! She took great care of us. The entire staff was awesome from the moment I stepped into the door until the moment I stepped out the door to leave. I had the veal chop, it was wonderful. Will definitely be back again.
The filet was slightly over-done, but that was my fault for ordering it as I did.
Excellent food, wine and service. Couldn’t recommend more.
We met our friends for a anniversary dinner on a Sunday evening. The whole staff made us feel like royalty.
We all had drinks, soup and seafood that was ample portions and well prepared. Dessert is always a must and we sampled 3 from the list. Our server suggested a bottle of wine from the extensive list (more like a Tome) excellently paired with our food. We were there for almost 4 hours and never felt rushed and enjoyed ourselves immensely! A great time place for any occasion!
I took my wife to The Fig Tree for her birthday. The restaurant is very unique as it is in a house setup as a restaurant. Very elegant and inviting. The food was great. There were unique items on the menu and plenty of options. I had the Elk Filet. They also give good size portions. We will definitely be returning. A great place for dates, birthdays, and anniversaries. Service was top notch. I recommend Uber or Taxi though as parking is limited.
Retirement dinner for a colleague. Jennifer was our server and amazing! Great food and great service! Will be back when I’m back in Charlotte
Fig tree never disappoints!
I have been to The Fig Tree twice now, and the second visit was even better than the last. The food was absolutely amazing and well presented, the wait staff and hostesses were very pleasant and attentive, and the ambiance of the dining area was cozy and inviting. Will be back!
The servers were rude, snobby and condescending. I had wanted to go here for the last 5 years. Your restaurant was highly recommend when we moved here. I saved it for my birthday dinner celebration, and the servers completely ruined it for me and my guests. We will not return. It’s completely unacceptable to treat your customers with such arrogance.
Great food, nice romantic ambiance, wonderful place to spend quality time with that special someone.
Delicious food and cocktails. Extensive wine list. Best romantic restaurant in Charlotte! I always enjoy my experience at The Fig Tree :)
The service was excellent. The atmosphere was phenomenal, "Very cosy" However, it was very loud. We came on a very congested night, Which is not bad at all. The food was bland. There could've been a little more seasoning. Overall, The customer service was incredible. That is what sold us, We will be back!..Keep up the great work!
First time visiting this restaurant...wonderful dining experience! Great food, excellent service, nice ambiance!
Had heard alot of positive things about this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. Gracious service and a good looking menu and exceptional wine list. Unfortunately, there was a failure to execute. Ordered a drink before the dinner followed by an appetizer with an accompanying glass of wine while we perused the menu for our entreés. Shortly after the aperitif drinks arrived, so did the appetizer. A little rushed no doubt, so it sat while we enjoyed our drinks. Bread and a garlic spread arrived as well as the wine for the appetizer. Timing was definitely off. Ordered our mains and then tried the appetizer special. It was a duck ravioli. Besides being cold from having sat there for an extended length of time, it was chewy and lacked filling. We had decided on fish for the entreé, sea bass and the daily special, corvina on a bed of risotto. The fish was well prepared; however, there was a genuine lack of imagination as to presentation and execution of the accompanying sides. The risotto was bland, soupy and prepared using long grain rice. Really? I thought risotto was to be made wih a short grain rice like Canarolli or Arborio? Not what we were expecting at this level of a restaurant. The sea bass was placed on top of a potatos with 3 spears of asparagus. Very plain looking and not very imaginative. For $45, I would have thought there would be something a little more than what one could get at a mid level restaurant. We fnished with the cheese tray with the remainder of a delicious White Burgundy we had with dinner. Must say, this was the highlight of the meal. Sorry to say, we were disappointed as our expectations did not meet reality.
Divine! Absolutely loved not only the food, but the atmosphere
Absolutely loved this restaurant. Great food. Great wait staff. Great wine list. My only problem was making a decision as the options were almost all tempting. Will definitely return.
My wife and I had dinner for the first time. The atmosphere can't be beat. The service was fantastic. The food was really good I just wasn't wowwed by the taste. It's just a personal opinion as I think a lot of people will really love it. I would recommend Fig Tree to others.
Always get great service, food and wine
I don't write reviews hardly ever, but I thought The Fig Tree clearly earned one. Wanted to go there for quite a while, finally did after going to the theater in Charlotte. Location is great and convenient from downtown Charlotte. Pretty location, prompt seating with a reservation. The food was sublime, really. Everything we had was outstanding and perfectly prepared. Ambiance was pleasant and we were able to converse easily. It is pricey, and you need to know this before you get there, but the food and service were so good that it is still a great value. Did I say how wonderful our food was? Definitely will go again, and definitely recommend!
Excellent Dinner and our Waiter was fantastic! We will return
Amazing meal. Great service
Always a great place for a nice meal on a special occasion. Service staff always does a great job.
