Service was excellent and the kitchen was superb at getting the different courses out to us timely. The food was very good. The appetizer we had, the apple beggars purse, was just ok. The soup of the day and Cesar salad were above average and the entrees were hot and tasty. The deserts, the chai chocolate torte and the beignets however were outstanding. Coffee was also excellent.

It was loud but still a pleasant evening, we enjoyed most of the food. The highlight was definitely the escargot and house salad...the elk was amazing too.

We were delighted to find this warm friendly restaurant on our brief visit to Charlotte. The food was outstanding. One of us ordered the Sea Scallops and the other ordered the Veal Chop. Both were perfectly cooked and attractively plated. If we ever spend the evening in Charlotte again, The Fig Tree would be on our reservation list.

Overall great experience. Our Waitress Natalya was amazing. She made great recommendations. One of our friends is vegan and Natalya asked the chef to create a vegan fish for them and the Chef worked his magic on a tasty dish off menu!! Will definitely return and recommend to network.

Our first visit and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Best Caesar salad because of the anchovies. Filet Mignon cooked to perfection. A great place to celebrate a special occasion. Lots of attention to details.

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.

Fig Tree has become my "go to" restaurant experience in Charlotte for a serene environment in a beautiful restored Craftsman bungalow, superb cuisine and impeccable service. Every dish is prepared with care, ingredients are locally sourced and fresh, and presentations are imaginative and delicious. Fig Tree's grilled lamb tenderloin is the best I've tasted anywhere! Best of all, the service is unhurried, and in a very European way you are made to feel that the table is yours for the evening...

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!

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!!
