The food and the service are outstanding. We really enjoyed our entrees. My husband had the grouper and lobster tail, while I had the special of loup de mer with squash, zucchini and fennel risotto. The pink eyed pea soup was excellent. I highly recommend the beignets for dessert.

La sera che ci siamo presentati dovevamo mangiare fuori sul terrazzino perché dentro c’era un’evento. Questo pero l’hanno avvisato pochi giorni prima e quindi va bene. Abbiamo deciso venire lostesso perche doveva essere uno dei migliori ristoranti a Charlotte. Il servizio era buono ma purtroppo non posso dire la stessa cosa sul cibo. Non so se era la colpa dell’evento che tra altro non e nemmeno iniziato ma nessuno dei piatti era ad altezza delle ottime recensioni.

First time to the restaurant and had a fantastic birthday celebration with my daughter. Our waitress was excellent. The food was amazing. We started with the escargot, mixed green salads and had the Elk Chop and the Pork Chop as our main meal. We split a dessert and the chef sent out a special dessert for my daughter's birthday. Looking forward to celebrating more occasions here.

Everything was excellent. Changed our reservations for an hour later with no problem. Table and seat very comfortable. Menu had many great options and specials. All our dinners were brag worthy. Chef even substituted a side on one menu item at our request. Service outstanding.

We enjoyed everything. I didn't think the jazz music playing in the background was appropriate for the rest of the experience.

Really enjoyable experience. Jennifer and the rest of the staff provided awesome service. The Osso Bucco was delicious along with the sides, I think it is my new favorite Fall dish. The Grouper/Lobster were cooked perfectly!! My only complaint was that it was a little more noisy that I would have liked. My seat was caught between two dinning areas and my guest was more isolated by a wall which made it hard to have a conversation.
Highly recommend The Fig Tree for any occasion.

If you stick to the basics you will have a good meal at The Fig Tree. Steak, filet, salads, etc. The service is fine, as is the wine list. Nothing special, however. Serviceable. No masks required here, though the servers wear masks.

Was a lovely experience for our anniversary. My only complaint is that the Veal Chop was requested Med-Rare and was over cooked. I should have sent back or requested something different but our waitress was so lovely I didn’t want to complain for her sake. (Even though she likely wouldn’t have been held responsible)

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.
