It was spectacular! I got the escargot with a cream sauce to die for, then got the chilled soup which was interesting. My main course was the scallops which were seasoned and cooked perfectly. My hubby got the crab and avocado, Caesar, and elk. The elk was delicious. In typical fashion besides being stuffed, I got the hazelnut creme de pot, which was Devine. Our service was top notch!

Fresh and delicious food. Plates are small but prices are big. Feel Like they could do a little better with prices or give you a bit more food.

The service was very good, and the ambience nice. Food quality was good, but not excellent or outstanding (presentation was good but not very innovative or creative except for the cheesecake we had for dessert). Alcohol was overpriced ($ 15 for a medium glass of wine, $ 12-16 for cocktails which weren't particularly innovative and one was mostly ice). $ 170 for three drinks, a starter, two mains, and a dessert.

The food was really good but the staff was pretty rude. Our server rolled her eyes any time she walked by our table and gave up on her friendly server act after we paid. It seemed like a lot of the waiters just didn’t want to be there.

Food was absolutely amazing. Spinach salad, spicy canteloupe soup, trout, steak and lamb were all perfectly cooked, beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Desserts were sent from heaven! Chevre cheesecake, Beignets and Chocolate Pot d' Creme - oh my! All wonderful!
Amazing wine list, great service (thanks Rebecca) and wonderful ambiance. We will return!

First time having escargot. It was delicious, and the sauce was amazing. Great for sopping with the focaccia bread. Almost filled up too much on the bread, I could not quite finish the halbut and lobster, which was fantastic. My wife had the grouper special, which she loved as well.

Nice ambience on the patio, overall great experience.

We loved the Fig Tree. Food and service was outstanding. Table had orders for the pork chop, scallops, trout, and lamb chops. Everyone loved their meals and my husband said they were the best lamb chops he has ever had. Will definitely go back next time we are in Charlotte.
