The management should be more open to make special gesture to guest who come to celebrate their special occasions and have decided to choose fig tree.
Otherwise we are very happy with the service and food .

Always an excellent meal. We went out for simply a "date night" but felt such a special quality to the night due to the service and food. Our waiter, Michael, was knowledgeable and helpful in directing us to an excellent wine selection. We will come back again.

Hors Douvres were excellent (escargot) and dessert (toffe cake) was spectacular but the elk was tough and the accompanying vegetables were just OK.

This was the second occasion to dine at the Fig Tree. The food was very good but the value was lacking. From the appetizer to the dinner salad through the main course left us with little to be desired. I assume higher pricing with fine dining but the totality of the experience was just not there. The flavors were very nice but the “Wow” factor in relation to the cost was entirely phoned in. It was just Ok! If your not familiar with delicious, abundant, high end dining, then you will enjoy the evening. If you are, then save your money.

We went here for my wife’s birthday. We had read another customer review that Fig Tree “sets the standard” for fine dining in Charlotte. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was exceptional. As far as a white tablecloth experience goes, Fig Tree certainly misses the mark. Food is fine, service is lacking. There are many other places we could have (and probably should have) celebrated instead.

We love to celebrate special occasions at the Fig Tree, and last night we again dined at the restaurant. The hostesses that greeted us were charming and professional. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.
The food was hit and miss last night. The apple appetizer and the spinach salads were very tasty, however both of our entrees lacked flavor. We were both disappointed with the taste of our dishes.

My 37th wedding anniversary was celebrated in a spectacular fashion by experiencing a gastronomical extravaganza at this marvelous restaurant. Our waiter. Eddie, was knowledgable about the perfect wine to pair with the lobster pomodoro. He was attentive without being intrusive and the ambience was perfect for a romantic evening. We look forward to celebrating our next wedding anniversary at the Fig Tree.

A very fine restaurant in a "nice old house" in a historic area of Charlotte. Quality cuisine, excellent wine list, good servers and bartenders.

Took my wife here for anniversary dinner. Beautiful setting, very attentive and professional service, spectacular food and drink. Was especially pleased that, even on a busy night, the restaurant maintained an intimate atmosphere. Loved it and would definitely recommend.

Very nice restaurant and the food was OMG and the service was great! It was kin of noise to me but towards the end it got quieter when the other table leaves the room! But the Veal Chop was excellent and cooked perfectly and my wife sea bass with big lumps of crab meat was excellent too! So I highly recommended these restaurant the portions are hugh to match the high price so it balance it out! We will back again!

We went to the Fig Tree again this year to celebrate an anniversary. This time however it wasn't exceptional like in previous visits. The food for the price just wasn't up to par. There was a Lobster Thermidor offering we got for $53 but it was really Bland and runny wasn't even Maine Lobster! Appetizers were good were goood but both entrees were very disappointing as well as a dry sticky toffee cake that they serve for dessert. The service was great no complaints there.

We went for our anniversary after a lovely experience previously at this restaurant. Our server was a bit scattered, telling tables different specials and not describing the menu well so we ordered something we wouldn't have had we known. Lacked the polish you would expect for fin dining. The food seemed to be cooked by a totally different chef. The foie gras appetizer was amazing, the caesar salad a soggy mess. The lobster on my sea bass was cooked perfectly, the dish overall has zero seasoning and lacked flavor, a huge let down. It was a bummer of an evening. A place of this caliber should not be so inconsistent on separate visits. Oh the desert, chevre chaeescake was killer.

Overall, the experience was good. The service fantastic and the menu was diverse. Tuna tartare appetizer was amazing. Salad (spinach) and soup (mushroom bisque) were full of flavor. The entrees were mixed - the Waygu (special) ok... and tue elk chop was overcooked. Dessert (molasses cake) was well worth it. Overall good experience... especially the port selection
