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.

My wife and I celebrated our 50th at The Fig Tree. All elements of that experience exceeded our expectations. The service was outstanding , waiter very knowledgeable and personable. Varied selections on the menu. Food was well presented and delicious . Setting was terrific .... quiet, not rush experience. We are glad we picked Fig Tree for our 50th celebration!

I was given a gift card last year as a wedding gift. My husband kept coming up with reasons he couldn't go so I finally asked if I could just take a friend. I've heard so many amazing things about Fig Tree and my experience did not disappoint! It was absolutely amazing! I waited for my friend at the bar and the bartender definitely knew what he was doing! It was interesting to watch him! Once my friend arrived we were seated and chose the blackened grouper special of the evening and it was fantastic! Our server Curt and the other servers were all gracious and attentive and it was a wonderful evening! My friend and I were celebrating her birthday and we ordered the corn cake dessert which came out beautifully! We enjoyed the experience tremendously!

Another outstanding evening at our favorite eating establishment in Charlotte. While many restaurants are changing their menu and deserting what made them the Fig Tree has maintained its friendly atmosphere, excellent service and impeccable attention to the quality of food presentation and quality.

We ate here recently to celebrate our anniversary. It’s not our first visit and we were reminded why we should come back more often. This place delivers beautifully prepared meals and there is an extensive wine menu which the wait staff know well. Our server was attentive but not overly so. One of things I love about this place is the setting. It’s in an old arts and crafts home and so the rooms of the home can’t hold more than a few tables each, making the dining experience more quiet and intimate. I highly recommend the Fig Tree if you’re looking for a fabulous all-around dining experience.

This was our first visit to Fig Tree and we were definitely impressed. The service was impeccable and the food was perfect. The wine is list much more extensive than any other wine list I have ever seen. We asked for and received a special appetizer, the most perfect fried calamari we have ever had. Our entrees were beautifully presented and satisfying. My fillet was very tender and cooked exactly as requested. My wife had the trout and it was a very large portion. Our dessert was unique and very tasty. Our server Michael also made it a very memorable night. It is definitely a place we will return for special occasions.

Great food and service! We started with seared foie gras, which is hard to find in the US. It was delicious, about as good as seared foie gras you'd find in France. And the waiter offered some Sauternes wine to pair with it. We then had Elk and Sea Bass for our main courses. Delicious as well. Pistachio bar for dessert, amazing as well. The wine list is fabulous!

My wife and I were in town for the evening and were fortunate to have found the Fig Tree. Our reservation was available on time, service was attentive without being intrusive, food was prepared perfectly and absolutely delicious.

Extensive wine selection and a knowledgeable staff to help you select a complementary beverage.

Wonderful dessert and coffee after our meal.

I highly recommend a visit to enjoy for yourself!
