Our server Jennifer was outstanding and the food was exceptional. I can’t wait to go back! By far the best restaurant experience we’ve had in Charlotte. We’re from Charleston, SC and have stellar restaurants we enjoy on a regular basis, but Fig Tree stands out as one of my best restaurant experiences ever!

One of the nicest restaurants in Charlotte. Server was very knowledgeable and friendly but there was a bit too much interjecting in our table’s conversations.

The 4 of us enjoyed our recent dinner. From the comments I would say we all found food 4 star.

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary here. Wow, the food was amazing! I've never experienced such flavorful food. Our waiter was very nice and welcoming. We were seated in one of the rooms upstairs, with had 4 2 people tables. It was pleasantly quiet with minimal noise from other areas of the restaurant. It was a wonderful experience. I recommend everyone treat themselves here at least once. We will be back.

Absolute awesome anniversary dinner. The best time to go might actually be 5:30pm. The service was very good, and the portions of food will leave you very full. Be sure to get a dessert with a flight of ports.

Our food was delicious! Definitely the best filet minion we’ve had in quite some time. The service and ambiance were great too, a little pricier and upscale than we were expecting but great for special occasions.

My wife and I came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were seated shortly after our reservation time at 8:15pm. We sat without anyone coming to the table for around 10 minutes. We had drinks from the bar, so weren’t terribly annoyed. Our waiter advised that our waiter was new and overwhelmed, so he would be assisting us. Which is understandable. We ordered appetizers and main courses and all came fairly timely. My wife had the scallops and I had the elk shank, which were delivered by a different waitress who then advised that our temporary waiter had to go home because he was sick and they told him he needed to go home. Again, totally understand but made me rethink the appetizers he brought us. Our entrees were delicious. Other than the service blunders, it was a good night and we enjoyed our date.

The venue is a very warm, inviting one. We sat upstairs and felt like we were special. The Service was outstanding and the food was prepared excellently and delivered on a timely basis. Loved the menu and we tried quite a few appetizers and had different entre's as well.

A real keeper!

Charlotte is booming with restaurants, including many new ones. You can't beat the Fig Tree. It's hands-down the best. The food and service are excellent! I love this place for special occasions, like birthday celebrations, as I know it will be a wonderful experience for everyone!

Visited the Fig Tree for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. The service was stellar and the food delicious. The building is charming and the outdoor seating was pleasant. The price is a bit high for some of the offerings, but they are unique and there are seasonal changes to the menu that keep it current and relevant. Kudos to the chef and team for delivering a special experience all around!!

This was my and my girlfriend’s first dinner date restaurant on our second day in Charlotte. The wait staff and bartender could not have made us feel more welcome, providing us a brief culinary history of the town, providing us other recommendations and giving us tips on their menu. They even added a special welcome message on the dessert place for us. Top notch all around. Delicious food. We will for sure be back.

One of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte! This time everything was lovely, I ordered the crab cake special and it just was not up to what we are used to.

Look forward to our next visit.

Our server (Gary? aka “Fig Newton”) was amazing. Explained very well all of the dishes we asked about, very personable, and wonderful about keeping the bread and drinks flowing! Food was amazing and the pastry chef made our anniversary special by personalizing our dessert. We will absolutely return!

The Fig Tree never disappoints. We decided for our one year anniversary to go to this beautiful home and have, possibly, one of the best meals of our lives. The service was perfect from the “Happy Anniversary” as soon as we sat down to the wine pairing with the Veal. My wife and I left full and happy. My wife and I will definitely come back very very soon. Thank you to the staff at The Fig Tree for making me and my wife’s one year anniversary something to remember.

Excellent service and staff
Food flavor was amazing
Quality of food was amazing
If I had to nitpick something it would be that the quantity of the appetizers can be increased a bit otherwise I have nothing negative to say.

First time customers with my wife for a Romantic dinner. We were allowed a drink at the bar and then seated in a quiet place to the side of a room. The wait staff was very attentive and the quality food from bread spread to dessert was awesome. We would definitely recommend and return.
