The Fig Tree is The best restaurant experience in Charlotte. A quaint setting, professional service, great wine list and creative and terrific food. Whenever we are.there, it is filled with people celebrating special occasions. My favorite.place, period.
Overall experience was great! Excellent service with attention to details. Presentation of food was spot on. Appetizer was the best! Halibut was better entree than Salmon , but it was close 2nd. The desserts were too small but tasty.
First time dining at Fig Tree. Ambience was eerily quiet on lower level, which gave way to a sterile and somewhat stuffy feel. Had escargot and veal carpaccio for appetizers. Escargot were underseasoned, and the gorganzola cream sauce was monotone in flavor. Carpaccio had a better flavor profile but still seemed to lack in overall flavor. Trout entrée contained king crab, some pieces of which were not thoroughly warmed through. This was not the issue though, as again, the flavor profile was monotone and suffered from any hint of acidity/brightness. Two positives: service was very attentive and wine list was extensive and well-curated. Perhaps the lack of seasoning and missing acidity and brightness in flavor (across the entire meal) could be attributable to an off-night, but in general, the ambiance and menu seem a bit tired.
Meets the high expectations set by other reviewers/sites! Wonderful enhancements to some French classics. Escargot and Squid starters were fantastic, with some zing added by chorizo and squid. Veal chops were massive and so tasty we almost finished them. The pastry chef presented some difficult choices and both we chose were excellent. Best wine list I’ve seen in a while with some great off-the-beaten path options.
We absolutely love Fig Tree. Everything bite and sip is crafted to perfection. The Beggar’s Purse and the Escargot were our appetizers and, as always, they were exceptional. Pappardelle, lamb and the filet were our entrees and they were all delicious. This place never disappoints.
Ryan was our server and he did a great job.
Date Night with my bride of nearly 20 years.
Really terrific service. Appetizers and soup were incredible... Main course was good. Wine list was extensive and server had good knowledge of food and Wine
Overall a great restaurant. Our server Corey was wonderful.
Great ambiance and garden fresh vegetables. They grow locally.
Fantastic! Best restaurant in Charlotte. Entree portions are larger than most high end restaurants in Charlotte. The escargot and sea bass were phenomenal
They have a wonderful wine selection. The food was excellent. Try the scallops. Our server was well informed and went out of his way to make the evening excellent for my husband's birthday. His recommendations were spot on. We will be going back!
I have heard great things about Fig Tree for years and finally had an opportunity to check it out last weekend. I was not disappointed. The restaurant is quaint and cozy, the staff is warm and welcoming. We loved the ambiance of the room we sat in upstairs. It was intimate and charming, the servers where always there when you needed them , and the background music was played at a level that made it easy to converse with the members of our party. The food was delicious but the beignets stole the show! The Fig Tree is one of The Queen cities gems!
Ok Over priced for the amount of food you receive.
Delicious meal and attentive service! The wine selection was large and the server was very knowledgeable and provided great recommendations. The meal was well portioned, not too large, with really high quality and prepared items. The desserts are creative and a must-have!
What a lovely evening with out of town family. Everything from the bar visit to service, wine, dinner & the ambience. Not to be missed!
Absolutely DELICIOUS! We went for my fiance's birthday. He got the sea bass with lobster and I got a SC fish special (Tile fish?). I had no idea what the fish was, but our server explained it so well to me and it was so delicious. We skipped appetizers because the main course came with a starter salad. We then got a dessert (all of which are made in house!). We got the peanut butter mousse chocolate cake and it was the perfect ending to our birthday dinner. The pastry chef even gave us each a coffee pettiforafter our actual dessert as a sweet birthday treat! Would definitely love to go back!
Birthday dinner .
Excellent food with very good service.
Curt was very attentive and informative.
Loved the building and a great wine list. Only negatives were noise level was really loud and restroom access was poor.
This is my husband and my favorite restaurant in Charlotte for a special occasion. The restaurant is beautiful, the food is always wonderful and the service is top notch.
We were blown away with the service and the food ! Hands down, this was the best restaurant we’ve been to in Charlotte!
What a treat, everyone made us feel genuinely special.
Corey, our server, made our evening quite special. Not only his professional service, but his warm and welcoming manner made our evening even more special.
Dinner, by the way, was FABULOUS!!!!
Everyone who recommended The Fig Tree, said that the food was awesome and they weren't kidding! Had not had Loup de Mer except in Europe!! Wonderful evening and hope to be back soon
Thank you for making our evening soo special!
First time to Charlotte. Wanted a romantic, quaint dinner. Perfect spot. People were friendly and the food fantastic. The ambience was great-like being in someone’s home.
Class service and meal
Excellent meal and service
Fantastic restaurant with delicious food!
OMG! The food was incredible! Our server, Delaney, was absolutely fantastic! I must recommend the purse Apple Beggar's Purse! The sea scallops were also a must have! I've got to get back there SOON!!!!
Given the price, we were very disappointed with the quality of our experience last Sunday. The Fig Tree has been top on our list of places we wanted to dine, so perhaps our expectation were unrealistic; however the dining room was so dark you couldn't read the menu, the wine was misrepresented and served too cold, and the appetizers were lukewarm and not hot. A person could overlook these slights if we hadn't paid almost $200 for our meals--and we shared an entree. Beautiful neighborhood gem but not the best value for your dining dollar.
My husband took me to dinner here for my birthday. The house is beautiful with lots of great history. Food was delicious and our waiter,Mike, was outstanding in his wine knowledge and food recommendations. We will definitely be back!
I had been hearing about this place for a long time and finally got to try it. I was quite pleased overall. The weather was nice so we got to sit outside and the patio was really nice and quiet. My main entrée needed a little salt but was excellent otherwise. The appetizer was slightly blander than I expected but was creative and interesting anyway. Dessert was awesome. It was our anniversary, so they also brought us some cute little brownies at the end of the meal and those were really good too. Service throughout was flawless. Noise level is something that is important to me since it seems like so many restaurants are so loud these days, so I really appreciated the fact that this place was really quiet!
We enjoyed a nice dinner on the front porch. Delightful weather in February and outdoor dining was a treat. The food was outstanding. Caesar salad with fried calamari is a must. The trout was delicious. My wife had the Mahi Mahi and felt it was a bit dry. Friends had the lamb which was very good. Drinks were just ok. Service was fine. We will be back.
Fabulous dinner. The food was fantastic. Cozy dinning room.
It was my first time dining there I went with my husband for our anniversary and we had an amazing experience everything was fabulous the food, the atmosphere, and the staff I highly recommend this place.. u will enjoyed
Great experience! Came for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend. We sat at the bar everything was fantastic. Great suggestions from the bartender and the rest of the staff. We will absolutely be back for our next special occasion.
Excellent in all respects
Amazing food and service !! Will definitely return! Great place for a romantic dinner for 2 or just a date night with friends.
Great food & great service! The selections were wonderful.
This is the way you should be treated when you go out for dinner, from the time we walked in the door we were treated the way I would expect, great food as always fantastic wait staff.
The quality of the food and service were exceptional. I definitely recommend it for special occasions. I would leave the kids at home.
