    Our experience here was amazing from start to finish. We were greeted at the door and taken directly to our table with the staff wishing my husband a happy birthday on the way. Our waiter Fernando was so nice and happy and knowledgeable. I did not see the grouper on the menu that I had seen online and happened to mention that. Fernando went to the kitchen and the chef was able to make the grouper special for me. It was superb - probably the best I have ever had. My husband had the elk chops and again - they were outstanding. The service was excellent start to finish. We will be back again and highly recommend the restaurant. On a side note - the atmosphere was really pleasant. Nice jazz music was playing low so that it could be enjoyed. We easily had a conversation without having to raise our voices which was really nice and harder to come by these days.

    We had a great evening at this restaurant. We chose the outdoor seating, which, weather permitting was quite nice. The service was impeccable. The food was great. Appetizers such as seared foie gras and oysters/ pork belly were perfectly prepared. For entree, I had the veal chop, and my wife had a halibut special - again, nicely prepared. Only downside is that it's a bit pricey.

    Tasting menu with a few hits snd some misses. Started w/two fried dishes - oyster followed by avocado. Accompaniments were good, but wish second course would have been a salad/cold soup instead of another fried dish. All three fish courses had a grain component-polenta, cous cous and farro. A bit too many carbohydrates and detracted from the protein. Service and ambiance were excellent, but wished composition of tasting menu was better. A la carte entrees may have been the way to go.

    Outstanding, Exceptional evening of dining-- First, the women who greeted us at the door were very warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to create a personal experience for us. Cory was our server and he was extremely knowledgeable and friendly-- he truly knew how to manage our menu choices and pace our meal so we were not rushed and could savor the chef's creations. The wine list was unbelievable and one of the best we have ever seen. The cheese board was exceptional and we left with a list of cheeses to find from Rachel at Orrman's. This was a First Class experience. So happy we made the decision to try Fig Tree for our special celebration... just added to the grandness of the whole day thanks to the team at Fig Tree.

    We always enjoy eating at the Fig Tree. The food is good, the service is very attentive, and the porch is lovely. However, I was a bit disappointed by the food this time. The menu seemed far too heavy for June. It was more of a winter-time menu with rich, heavy dishes. In fact, I find that the menu doesn't change enough with the seasons. More particularly, I did not enjoy the octopus appetizer -- rubbery and tasteless (it needs to be marinated).

    We usually only go to the Fig Tree for special occasions, last night being an anniversary. While we were enjoying the evening, we both wondered why we don't frequent more often? Very good food, well prepared and attractively presented, excellent service, and something that is rare in Charlotte -- quietness and tranquility inside.

    Knocked it out of the park again! The Broccoli and Asparagus soup was exceptional and I don't even like asparagus. The cheese board is my go-to and the new rotations were a nice surprise. Michael was so accommodating and made my experience excellent as always. Not to mention my favorite chocolate martinis! Sad I won't be back for four months!
