Have been going to the Fig Tree for years and has been a consistently wonderful experience. Warm, cozy with high end dining. Chef always tries new things or adds twists to his classics. Staff are as professional as it comes. Located in a historic home in Charlotte, so don’t expect an expansive bar. Just had dinner on Sunday 1/6/19.

I took my girlfriend her to do something special for her. We had an amazing time ; the food was excellent. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect. It was very romantic and relaxing. It is definitely a great place to go for special occasion. I would recommend The Fig Tree of Charlotte to all of my friends and would love to take my girlfriend there again one day.

Went there 3 years ago and wasn't excited. Decided to try it again - incredible experience. This time, being vegan, needed vegan option. CHef put together something that should be ON THE MENU it was sooooo good. The dinner salad was so good order an extra. Bread was fabulous, and vegan. Wine list was great. Service was attentive but not bothersome. All in all, will be back, and a good value.

The place had nothing for children and that’s probably not what they are catering to.
I was looking for a Christmas Celebration place and this just wasn’t as family friendly as I was looking for.
The food was acceptable but minimal portions for the price.

Fig Tree always overdelivers and is exceptional food and a one-of-a-kind experience. The ambience is bar none in Charlotte and the food is fantastic, albeit very pricey. It’s one of those special occasion or date places that’s completely worth every penny. Highly recommend.

We went to the Fig Tree with family for a special occasion. All seven of us commented on how good the food was and the great ambience. Everything we tried, wine, drinks, appetizers, soups, salads, dessert, were excellent. The service was at a 'white glove' level without being pretentious. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience. We've dined at most, if not all, the restaurants in the Elizabeth area and Uptown. I would say Fig Tree is at the very top of the list.

My fiance and I went for dinner recently and greatly enjoyed the scallop appetizer and he had trout with soup of the day (sweet potato, red pepper, creamy deliciousness in a cup) and myself sea bass with lobster. I also enjoyed the most delicious, fresh caesar salad I've had in a long time. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a dessert of amaretto mousse tart, which I highly recommend. The mousse was accompanied with flavors of tarragon icecream, sweet blood orange and candied nuts. Our server was outstanding-- laid back, funny and professional all at once. All of the wait staff and hostesses seemed friendly and caring. We would come back time and time again. :)

My husband and I dined here for his birthday. Gary provided us with excellent service. Our food was delicious. We had the ravioli for an appetizer it was fantastic. My husband has the elk and thought it was wonderful, well seasoned and tender. My scallops were outstanding. A little jealous of the table beside us thier scallop appetizer looked awesome...there's always next time.
