The Fig Tree Restaurant - Charlotte, NC
Great dinner as always at the Fig Tree. Food and offerings are outstanding and service was terrific. A very nice night out with the family.
Hi, spent $700, $200+ for two good wines. Food unremarkable, service was slack. No one ever picks up an empty app plates or empty wine glasses unless you ask. $500 in food to feed two boys 8 and 11, wife and 85 year father in law that had soup. Waiters seemed uninterested even though we still tipped $100. Money not the issue, I am sure it sound like it if you read this, but when you drop that number you expect everything to be right. Charcoal burned tart with crab meat, hard as a rock. Foi Gras and Elk were excellent. Never thought elk would look like a rack of lamb, who knew their ribs were so small. Maybe it was a baby elk.
Chef Greg probably does not come in on Sundays.
We have been to The Fig Tree a number of times and always look forward to our visit. This was another enjoyable trip. Food is alway great and I am always impressed with the servers - friendly and knowledgeable. We wanted to enjoy a relaxing time and the pace of service was timed very well. I put it at one of the best in Charlotte.
The meal and service was fantastic!
It was good, but did not stand out above any of the other high end restaurants in Charlotte. The atmosphere is a little stiff.
Lovely atmosphere, and great waitress! Food was a bit disappointing. Was expecting more of an outstanding culinary experience and felt it was good, but not outstanding. It is a very pricey restaurant so the expectations are always higher. We have a local restaurant where we live that beats this restaurant out in terms of food.
Simply put, The Fig Tree is a must. If you enjoy unique experiences, intelligent service and excellence. Make a reservation. The noise level noted above, was our fault. There were 5 of us and excellent wine. Thank you to Jennifer, who made our night, her decades of experience and understanding of the menu, wine, and service gave the "WOW" factor I was hoping for when entertaining clients. Most importantly, the food was absolutely phenomenal!!
Had our anniversary dinner here. Everything was delicious
Ambiance is excellent. Beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant. Food quality has slipped a bit recently. Not as good as in the past. But still good.
Great... as usual
Food and service was very good. Prices are very high, but we knew that before we arrived.
Our waitress was amazing and the food was delicious.
Went for our anniversary. The ambiance was nice and our server was very attentive and helpful. I didn’t feel that the food was what we paid for it. It was decent, but not better than if we’d gone somewhere cheaper. The sea bass was bland, Caesar salad left something to be desired. Waiter insisted we get the chocolate torte because it was his favorite but it was so rich we weren’t thrilled about it. We did have a really good anniversary and enjoyed the setting and attentive service. I think the food could be improved for the price.
One of the nicest meals I’ve ever had- lamb loin with a fig and almond risotto..delicious! My other half had the elk and it was also amazing. Side note- had the octopus as an appetizer which was lovely but served chilled which I wouldn’t have gone for. Also had the Caesar salad with calamari as a starter and the calamari was one of the nicest I’ve ever had..overall a great dining experience! Natalia was lovely and knew her stuff also!
The staff and meal were absolutely delightful. Accommodated is for a night out before the hurricane rains and winds arrived. Thank you for the wonderful evening!
Visited the FT with my family to celebrate a birthday. It was all adults. Out server was very informative and attentive. The food was wonderful. This was our second trip and we have not been disappointed yet.
Fabulous food, impeccable service, attention to detail. Fine dining!
My wife and I were celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary and we wanted to try a restaurant we had not yet visited. My son suggested The Fig Tree. We had a great meal and excellent service in a very cozy setting. We would like to have dined outside but the weather was too warm. I’m glad we experienced inside seating on our first visit and we will definitely plan another visit when the weather cools off. The food was prepared perfectly, our waiter (Michael) took exceptional care of us and we both left very happy about the experience. This is definitely a restaurant I will visit again.
Superior service and food quality. Team of wait staff very attentive. Food was great and atmosphere perfect. Will cost you some money but worth it!
By far the best restaurant in Charlotte and the service and cuisine exceeded my expectations !
The food was perfection and the service excellent! Definitely a destination restaurant and worth going out of your way to eat there.
Amazingly creative but will be familiar enough for those who are not as adventurous.
It was wonderful and would highly recommend.
Love the creativity.
Food was excellent both in preparation and presentation. Service was excellent!!!!
We were visiting from out of town. Friend in Charlotte recommended. So glad we visited.
Food and service were delicious . It is a bit overpriced though and both myself and my husband who had the Sea Bass had a very bad stomachache. Either too rich or bad fish.
We have been to The Fig Tree a number of times and have never been disappointed. The service is always friendly and the staff are very helpful, especially when it comes to the extensive wine list. The food is consistently delicious and perfectly cooked. We each had a fish dish (trout and sea bass) but have very different tastes in white wine. Our server, Rebecca, was spot on with recommendations. looking forward to returning soon.
Excellent appetizers (foie gras, escargot) entrees not quite as impressive (lamb, sea bass)
We can’t say enough about The Fig Tree-from the food to the ambiance and especially the service! Seth went above and beyond to meet our every need! I would definitely recommend-for any occasion.... ours was pre theater and we wished we could have stayed longer.
Food was ok. Wine list was phenomenal.
Fantastic experience. Food was outstanding and service (Darren) could not have been any more enjoyable.
Rebecca's service was professional, yet personal. The sea bass was excellent.
Wonderful meal and a very friendly, professional staff. Our waiter, Gary, was outstanding - as was the meal. My wife had the fig/peach appetizer and still talks about it. She followed that with Sea Bass - again, it was wonderful. As for me, I dined on the filet (boring to some people, but I'm from Texas and beef is my "thing"). Our dessert (a strawberry tort of some type - with a candle in it for my wife's birthday) was a delicious end to the evening's dining. Great experience - we came to Charlotte from New Orleans following Katrina and I'm here to tell you, The Fig Tree could compete with the best restaurants of The Big Easy
Gary delivered great service and the food was exceptional- has sea bass and hubby had veal chop.
We went for our anniversary dinner and it was perfect. The food was amazing and my cocktail was so refreshing! We will definitely go again.
We had a business dinner at the restaurant and everything was outstanding. The wine selection was fantastic and our waiter recommended a boutique wine that we loved. Gary, who was our waiter is exceptional. He was probably the best server I had encountered in years and the entire table concurred. Thank you for an amazing experience!
Fabulous meal and service can't wait to go back!
They made my husbands birthday special. Amazing food. Great service. Definitely an upscale venue.
One of the top spots in Charlotte. Most everything exceeded our expectations. Fig Tree has been in Charlotte longer than most and has never disappointed. Highly recommended and BRAVO!
Second time at Fig Tree - another great meal. Really good Kir Royale to start. Very fresh house salad with light dressing. Super lean and tasty lamb and perfectly cooked scallops. Decadent chocolate torte. Very quiet and relaxing in beautiful house. We'll do again.
