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.

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.

Was really looking forward to this evening. We've enjoyed the Fig Tree in the past, but not this time. It was my birthday. The girls at the front acknowledged that. Waiter did not. He never introduced himself. He was obviously not happy to be there at all.We noticed he displayed the same bad attitude with his other tables .He did not ask if he could take our plates away. He took them before we finished our cheese board. My husband ask him not to, but mine was already gone.He gave the specials and then just stood there. No personal interaction at all. Just the facts. Really made our evening unpleasant. Felt we were being scolded. Very odd.The meal just didn't make up for such a poor attitude.

Phenomenal meal! Chef Owner Greg was kind enough to do a special tasting menu for my husband''s milestone bday...what a HIT! Each dish was amazing and the wine pairings were out of this world! Not one miss in the entire meal. Service from Rich was outstanding, as well. We didn't dine off the regular menu but we overheard many of the offerings and we can't wait to go back! Definitely a top notch dinner! Thanks to all!

Gourmet dining in a wonderfully restored and well decorated craftsman building was only surpassed by the amazing attention and knowledge by our server who took time to share her deep culinary knowledge along with listening attentively to our personal stories. The meal, atmosphere, and service were well worth the price of the amazing meals.

We will return and spread the word to all our friends.

My fiancee and I visited the Fig Tree for the first time this past Saturday. We had been curious about it for some time as the reviews online are all excellent. The Fig Tree did not disappoint. We had the octopus appetizer, which was delicious. The octopus was tender and flavorful. My fiancee had the lamb and I had the filet for our appetizers. Both were cooked perfectly and her fig risotto was particularly nice. Even our salads were excellent, and I generally find salads boring. The desserts all sounded great so we could not decide on one to share... so we didn't! I had a peanut butter and chocolate torte and she had peach bread pudding. Perfect way to top off a perfect meal.
Additionally, the service was as good as the food. Eddie was attentive and informative without being intrusive. Everything was artfully presented and the bungalow setting is quaint and charming.

This was our second reservation at the Fig Tree. Our first experience was excellent and prompted us to return. Our secondexperience was good, but could have been better. We had a wonderful waiter the first time, so-so, this time.

The Fig Tree is certainly one of the best restaurants in Charlotte. Important to consider updating the wine list.

Have eaten here many times, but this time all 3 entrees were lacking in flavor - elk chop, lamb and grouper. The beet appetizer was very small for $12.00. The desserts were very good but again, for $12 each a bit pricy. The service was excellent, but at theses prices I expect better food.
