I had a fabulous birthday dinner there with my husband! Rich, our server, was outstanding. He was always around when we needed him and disappeared at the
appropriate time!
Dinner was delicious as always. The food always perfectly plated, make for great photos!
Our daughters wanted to see the "food" so we took pictures of each course!! We both really love the restaurant! Can't say enough
good things about it.

Great menu, execution and service. Our waitress, Jennifer, is among the best we’ve had. She accurately described the preparation and taste of several entrees including Elk and Pheasant — very helpful as was her terrific personality. The restaurant is expensive but this is a case of getting what you paid for.

The Fig Tree is a special place. It's so good that it's difficult to get a reservation. We planned far enough ahead and were thrilled we could enjoy all that it had to offer. Our server Jennifer was a true professional. She was capable of handling several tables at once while treating each like it was her only one. The food was spectacular. From the octopus flavored with Shashino peppers & olives, to the scallops, to the absolutely delicious Scottish salmon. The wines by the glass were also very good. Additionally, I liked that a salad came with the meal and that I was able to use an Open Table gift card. It was just a great evening.

This was our first visit to a Charlotte restaurant since Restaurants reopened from the pandemic and we were so pleased with The Fig Tree. They made our Anniversary dinner very special. We appreciated the room upstairs all to ourselves and our server, Zach who spoiled us with excellent customer service. The food was exceptional. Our dessert was delivered with a message “Happy Anniversary” in chocolate, a very nice touch.

The Fig Tree is easily one of Charlotte's best restaurants. The food is expertly prepared and they have one of the best wine selections I have ever seen. They are doing a great job of providing a little more space due to Covid but the restaurant is still lively and the overall dining experience is as good as ever.

I will never forget my night at The Fig Tree! We were celebrating my mother's retirement from years of factory work. I reserved seats in advance, and the staff took special care to sit us in a primo spot. My mother actually teared up in joy a bit over the niceness of it all. The foie gras was absolutely superb, and I loved that they had a Salty Dog as one of their premium cocktails. I never find those. I wish I could remember the name of our waitress. She had a red pixie cut and tragus piercings, and her personality added such a sparkle to the whole experience. Everything was top shelf. 10/10. Cannot wait to return!

The elk was great, definitely recommend, as well as the escargot appetizer. My wife got the grouper and lobster tail, both were undercooked, so that was disappointing. For the quality we feel it was a bit over priced.

This was an excellent experience. The food was excellent, service was very attentive and not being from the
Charlotte area we really didn’t know what to expect. This was probably the best restaurant we had gone to
during our 10 day road trip. Plan to return when in Charlotte again.
