One of the best date night, white table cloth restaurants in Charlotte. The building itself is a home rebuilt for a restaurant. I’ve taken my significant other there twice now and have had amazing experiences both times. It is more expensive so be prepared.

Restaurant inside of a restored home. Very intimate. Sat immediately but it took our server almost 10 mins to acknowledge us. Early reservation at that. Only real complaint was the nickel-and-diming of the salad. Spinach salad was extra than house. Ok. That's fine. But then "Would you like to add pine nuts and goat cheese to your salad?" Total is $8 to "upgrade" to a spinach salad with something on it other than spinach and dressing. Just tell me you can get a spinach salad for $X more. Don't need 3 different line items on a bill for one salad

Service was spectacular. I was amazed how courteous and considerate Fig Tree was to my request for a more quiet table (for my Mom) during the reservation process, reaching out to inquire if Mom would have difficulty with stairs. Our server Kurt was wonderful, first class.

Food was fabulous. There were 4 of us. We each had a different entrée and loved them all. The dishes were unique and well portioned.

My husband and I went here for my birthday. The staff was very accommodating and made the dinner very special. The wine "novel" was awesome and our waiter was very knowledgeable about it and was able to offer recommendations. The food was great and the kitchen was very sweet to decorate my dessert for my birthday and send out a complimentary dessert, as well. We really enjoyed the evening.

Service was spotty but well intentioned. The facility is old and needs a coat of paint. The food was good but not remarkable. Nice deserts and ice wines. Price point on the high side but the menu would work for most budgets

We had high hopes based on the reviews, reputation, and limited reservations available. The staff was very friendly, the building is beautiful, and the ambiance pleasant. However our dishes were surprisingly bland and rather unremarkable for this price point. Our server was young. not very perceptive, and poorly trained in wine selection and uncorking. No one aspect of our visit was a deal killer, but not a restaurant I'd bother returning to, given the center city's many fine alternatives.

Wonderful restaurant in 1913 lovely house. Fish and beef entrees were all prepared to perfection. Cheese plate and salads were appropriate sizes so we could enjoy our main entree. Our waiter was friendly, not stuffy or intrusive.

Only small complaint they tried to sit us right next to front door after I had made the reservation 2 weeks earlier. But when we asked to for another table was quickly shown better table upstairs.
Loved this restaurant and will be back.

Our server was very attentive to the other table in the room. I had to ask for drink refills, even ended up asking the water boy for my refill after the server failed to bring it. The elk we ordered medium. It came out medium rare. The filet was delicious and the escargot was tasty. Oh had to call server down for the check, I waited for him to pass us four times, he never looked our way.

First time here. Pretty building with terrific ambiance. So many delicious food choices. Asparagus soup, the yummy bread and house Salad dressing were great starters. Our picks were the veal chop and the Maine lobster and grouper dish...amazing. Plentiful so we did not have room for dessert. Huge tasty wine list. The spot on service was informative and helpful after inquiries. All with a positive charm. Bathrooms tell all! You can’t go wrong here. We will be back again to try more dishes.

The lighting in this restaurant is extremely dim. We started with the cheese selection which was very nice but served with over seasoned crackers . I asked for anything that was not seasoned so that we could actually taste the cheese but was told they had nothing . We then were served our entree s and my husbands fish ( the daily special ) was so over seasoned ( salt ) it was returned and they served him another . The replacement had a old taste which accounted for the over seasoning of the first . My entree ( Osso Bucco) 44.00 was very nice but was accompanied by a orzo that was so over seasoned ( with garlic ) that I could not eat or enjoy my entree either . I must add that I love garlic but I found that everything I put in my mouth at this restaurant that was actually prepared was so over seasoned !! I was looking forward to enjoying this restaurant but with a 200.00 check and leaving hungry... we must mark it off our list .

Beautiful experience at The Fig Tree. Our waiter was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairings. He was able to pair a wine with two very different entrees and easily accommodated multiple food intolerances to ensure we had a lovely and safe meal (gluten and dairy). Would highly recommend for a special night out.

My son and I, both self-proclaimed foodies, ate here before a show. We shared the chorizo-stuffed calamari which was amazing. We also tried the beet carpaccio and scallops. Everything we ordered was delicious, including the beignets and pound cake!
