The Fig Tree Restaurant
They made my husbands birthday special. Amazing food. Great service. Definitely an upscale venue.
One of the top spots in Charlotte. Most everything exceeded our expectations. Fig Tree has been in Charlotte longer than most and has never disappointed. Highly recommended and BRAVO!
Second time at Fig Tree - another great meal. Really good Kir Royale to start. Very fresh house salad with light dressing. Super lean and tasty lamb and perfectly cooked scallops. Decadent chocolate torte. Very quiet and relaxing in beautiful house. We'll do again.
This was our second visit to Fig Tree and it my favorite restaurant in CLT now. Previously we went for my birthday a few years a go and this weekend we went for our anniversary. I did not disappoint on either occasion! The service both times was phenomenal, Jennifer was wonderful and made the evening feel special. I had the special that was supposed to be black grouper, but when they sold out of it they substituted sea bass instead and it fabulous. My husband had the lamb chop and had previously also had the Elk and they were both delicious as well. It is nice to find a restaurant where the food and the service are this outstanding and consistent. We will be back soon!
Lovely place for a birthday or anniversary dinner. We had the veal chop (absolutely incredible) and the scallops (also amazing). Very attentive service. The wine list is 40 pages so it is slightly overwhelming, but at least you can find something you want. The only opportunity for improvement that I noticed was they didn’t have a sommelier - the waiter is your only resource when deciding on wine. We will definitely be back at the fig tree next time we are in Charlotte.
Best lamb. Mark at the bar is awesome. Friendly staff
We celebrated our anniversary at Fig Tree last weekend. The food was fabulous, especially the cheese plate, escargots platter, and veal chop. The wine list is extensive, and that’s a complete understatement. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about wine and steered us in the right direction. My husband and I are looking forward to having dinner again at Fig Tree!
This must be the finest restaurant in Charlotte, if not all of North Carolina. Perfect food and perfect service!
Service and food were great! Nice presentation of the food and great desserts. Easy place to talk as quiet environment. Pretty outside patio. Good accessibility as my husband uses a cane. Friendly and helpful and professional hostesses and servers.
Quaint restaurant which provides parking. Staff was very attentive and friendly, food was amazing. Lighting was a little bit too dark which made me sleepy, but other than that, highly recommend!
Everything about the food and service was excellent from the bartender who must be the only one left on the planet who knows how to make a classic dry martini (not chocholatini, berrytini, peanutbuttertini, blah blah blah), our server who was very attentive but not too much, the wine list which is extensive, and the food itself which as the star. Fresh ingredients, well prepared with care for taste and not for superficial impressions is what we look for and we found it here. When the wine was brought to our table it was not what we ordered, so the server immediately apologized and brought a better wine of the same type and region and charged the lower price. Her descriptions made the food sound appetizing without silly over-the-top claims. Only downside was the sign saying the side parking lot was closed was placed at the back of the lot where you could not easily get out.
The service and atmosphere was very good. The food quality was average. I had the chop. It was very dry and a little to salty for my pallet. The deserts, although creative weren’t particularly exciting.
Good overall and I would recommend this restaurant to a friend.
The stuffed calamari was excellent as was the wine selection and service.
Price was reasonable for the overall experience.
Every element of our dinner was spot on. The server,Rich, was excellent. He knew every detail of both food menu and wine list and very attentive, yet never intrusive! Our meal was so delicious! Everyone felt it was the best they have ever tasted. We had brought our family in from Monterrey Bay. Nicely done to everyone at the Fig Tree! Five Stars all round! We loved it!
The food and service was great, plus a great atmosphere for our anniversary.
The Fig Tree never disappoints. Wonderful food, great service, perfectly selected wines.
In passing through Charlotte, we chose The Fig Tree Restaurant based upon their reviews.
We were not disappointed. The food and service were both excellent, perfectly prepared, and beautifully
plated. Our server, Ryan was cheerful in answering several questions about our dinner choices.
During the meal he was always quickly available for any needs or requests-essentially a high quality
Being from the West, but now leaving in Florida, I have had in the past had the opportunity to eat Elk, but have not had any in over 15 years. Therefore, I selected the “ Elk Chops” entree. It was outstanding and
of a sizable portion. Not able to eat as much as I did when I was younger, I took about 1/2 of it back to our
hotel for the next day. Gosh, it seemed just as good eaten cold the next day.
Although the restaurant had a Black Grouper special, she decided on a Filet mignon- it was seasoned
well and simply delicious. The Polenta served as a side was probably the best we ever had.
As a starter, we both tried the Peaches appetizer-which was fabulous.
For dessert we shared the Cinnamon Beignets with Coffee Ice Cream and Cream Anglaise.
Although we ate inside, they have a beautiful porch dining setting for those evenings that make for the outdoor dining experience. Although a pricy restaurant, it is fairly priced for the dining experience.
A good choice for a special occasion or important dinner.
An excellent dining experience at The Fig Tree. Outstanding server (Rebecca), great and varied food choices, and a most wonderful evening. We will return!
Fig Tree has long been our favorite go to restaurant for a special evening. But will seriously reconsider that going forward.
Food is outstanding and service is near perfect. Our issue is with other patrons and the lack of attention to their shouting to each other in the small and intimate room we were in. We were trying to quietly celebrate our anniversary in what we believed is one of the best resturants in Charlotte. The adjacent table of 4 in our small room was unbelievably loud the entire evening. We could barely carry on a conversation. No one from the restaurant staff ever attempted to quiet them or speak to them about their obnoxious disruptive behavior. Patrons at the other tables in the room were quiet and soft spoken as you would expect in a fine dining establishment. Our planned evening in this great restaurant turned out to be a huge disappointment.
I would recommend The Fig Tree to any and everyone for that special occasion. The food was wonderful and I loved our waitress. I felt like royalty while dining there. Everything was so fancy and sophisticated. I will definitely be back.
Fig Tree is our all time favorite spot for a really nice dinner out. We generally spend a ton of money on a great bottle of wine, cheese, salads, entree and dessert. Our only issue is the room with all the tiny 2 top tables and you feel like you are sitting on top of the next couple. It is generally not an issue for us, but this time the woman beside us has a very loud, high pitched voice that was hard not to hear every single word ! I am now 100% up to speed on ALL of her medical conditions!!! Again, we love Fig Tree and understand having to maximize seating, but what can be done about all the 2 tops???? Thank you!!!
Best restaurant I have been to in Charlotte so far. Love the ambience and the menu. And an award winning wine list!
Great dining experience overall. Got there early so that was nice. The small dining room got very loud towards the end of our meal. Excellent service. We were treated very well.
This was our first visit to The Fig Tree. We found the service to be exceptional for Charlotte and the food to be well executed. The Fig Tree appears to offer the opportunity for a more complete dining experience than other establishments in the Charlotte area.
Best restaurant in Charlotte. Excellent cuisine outstanding service friendly people clean environment
Wonderful, as usual! The food, wine, and service are the best! It’s a relaxed nice meal atmosphere, which makes it even more enjoyable.
They get everything right. The temperature of the food is perfect when it arrives. They have an extensive wine list that is well priced!
Amazing place- table next to us was beyond loud and rude. Staff should have asked them to tone it down- we could barely hear each other.
Truly an excellent dining experience. Our waitress Jennifer was professional, friendly, and helpful. Food was A+. Creative dishes and wonderful flavors
We celebrated my wife’s Birthday. The staff was super friendly and the bread is sent straight from heaven. Lovely cozy restaurant to celebrate any occasion.
The ceviche was delicious but a bit smaller than I would have liked, especially for sharing with someone. Otherwise, the food was excellent!
Service was outstanding from the reservation process to the end of the meal. Our server was very knowledgable of menu options and offered best way to have it cooked for maximum satisfaction
Food presentation and taste was amazing! The elk chops and wasabi ice cream were the perfect choice for new items to try.
Excellent service and delicious sea bass, and an elk chop during our birthday dinner at the Fig Tree.
The calamari appetizer was very small and for me not edible much too spicy.
Melt in your mouth sea bass! Even my husband who doesn’t like seafood, loved it. Food was delicious from appetizer-entree-dessert. Awesome service and great ambiance to match.
This was our first visit to The Fig Tree restaurant for my wife's birthday. I had high expectations due to high marks from Trip Advisor. From the start, the restaurant and service is spectacular and didn't disappoint throughout the evening. I would return without hesitation to enjoy another meal for a date night or special occasion again. The prices are very reasonable considering the service and spectacular meals put together by the chef. Thanks for a great experience!
First time at Fig Tree...anniversary dinner...excellent food, service, atmosphere...will be back again for sure!
Best dinning experience in Charlotte.
If you are ever in Charlotte, you have to make it a priority to go to this restaurant. It was one of the most exquisite meals we have had in quite some time. Beautiful presentations, outstanding wine selection, and impeccable service.
Fantastic staff and great food for a special birthday celebration.
We had a great meal. Our server Jennifer was helpful and very much interested in us having a great time.
Exceptional experience and professional service. For starters, the cheese plate was on par with perfection. The wine list is essentially a novel of sorts with over 1000 wines to choose from. The main course and dessert was the best we’ve had in a long time. Everything here is thought out to the tee, a wonderful experience overall.
The Fig Tree, and our server Jennifer, pay attention to every little detail to make your dining experience a wonderful memory. The food and drinks are wonderful. The service is impeccable. Can't say enough about this wonderful establishment!
