The first time I had dinner at Fig Tree a few years ago, it was without a doubt one of the best meals that I had ever had in my life (and I have eaten at many world-class restaurants), and I could not wait to go back. We have now eaten there three more times, and all three were disappointing. The food is still above average, but a far cry from our first experience, and not worth the prices charged. We will be exploring other options in the future.

It took 25 minutes to order our bottle of wine because server disappeared and then another 20 minutes waiting on the bottle to arrive. It was 45 minutes without anything other than water at our table. Food was outstanding!

We chose The Fig Tree to celebrate our 3rd anniversary, and we were not disappointed! The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was divine, some really clever flavors at play on the menu! I was a little worried I might be hungry afterwards (you know sometimes fancy food is tiny food), but the courses filled me to the brim, couldn't even make room for dessert. Just by reading the dessert menu, however, I'm sure it would have been delicious as well!

The Fig Tree restaurant is a fantastic place. It has a wonderful atmosphere, quite and romantic and relaxing. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about the foods and drinks they serve. I would recommend the Fig Tree to anyone looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion or who is just looking for fine dining.

Menu, wine list, and service is exceptional. Lovely setting in restored house. This is upscale and expensive, but is our go-to for special occasions since our daughter moved to Charlotte.

Enjoyed a table on the lower patio . The patio’s ambiance evolves when the sun sets and they turn on the lights . The Fig Tree did not disappoint . Our server, Beth, was simply outstanding. The red snapper was superb as was the apple beggars purse appetizer. A French Ginger martini is a must. Presentation sets the mood and everything course served is real Kodak moment. The taste of anything ordered will certainly be a palate pleaser. Only wish the bar could produce a mint julep ! Only come here if you want to experience the best table in Charlotte.

The Fig Tree is wonderful as a place.

I had the veal chop and it was bland. Might have been the night and I might try it again.

My husband and I enjoyed absolutely everything! Your wine list was superb, we ordered Pahlmyer which was over the top. Creamy, flavorful, and ended with a lovely finish.
Our appetizers and entrees were cooked to perfection and presentation were awesome.
Our waiter was friendly, professional, and well experienced in the art of dining. I can not understand why you haven’t received at least one Michelin star. I highly recommend The Fig to anyone with a flavor for fine dining. Wish you were in NYC. !!!!

First time trying the Fig Tree. Great setting, very relaxed, attentive staff and servers, professional waiter, the food was great - fresh, interesting tastes, and a broad variety. Hosted a small dinner for four, all left full and loved their meals, and the wine and cocktails.

Food was as good as advertised. Have eaten here previously and was as good as we remembered. We had a butternut squash soup which couldn’t hv been better. And the fish special striped bass which was prepared properly and was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend but would save this gem for special occasions

This was my first time at The Fig Tree and it was an amazing experience. We tried 3 different appetizers, 2 entrees, and 3 deserts. I am studying Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management currently and every detail was perfect. From the placement of silverware to the knowledge of our server, Corey. One day I would love a tour of the BOH and be able to learn more about this establishment.

Great meal tonight. We even brought our 15 month old which can be a chore but our waiter Fernando was awesome and was accommodating for our little one. This is consistently our favorite fine dining restaurant in Charlotte and our fourth visit this year. The food is of high quality and very consistent. Hard to go wrong here with any choice of food.

Every time we come into town we make sure to get a reservation here. We tend to eat at the bar where between Mark, Rich & Dennis they are all great bartenders and will take of you all night! The food is exquisite and delightful each time!

We have been here many times with the same excellent results. Last evening, Sunday I had the veal chop and it was so fatty and exactly 5 bites of meat , I was so disappointed and when Fernando picked up my plate he never even asked what was wrong when I left so much on my plate. This is truly my favorite restaurant, but had to share my disappointment

I guess this should be a private note not share publicly

A very old house converted to a restaurant made for a charming and cozy setting to enjoy an outstanding meal. We chose to eat indoors. Pricey but highly recommend. A great choice for a special occasion.
