Fig Tree is overrated,over priced, and stuffy. There are so many restaurants in Charlotte (expensive and inexpensive)with better food and better vibe.

I always want this place to be better than it is. The setting, in an old house is fantastic. And my main dish was excellent. But my add $3 extra for a Caesar salad was tiny and the drinks had a very light pour. Not sure there was any alcohol in our first round. It was also slow and made us late for our next event, scheduled to start 2 hours after our reservation time.

The food and service was really good but my biggest pet peeve is businesses in house-shaped buildings so change that and you got a 5 star right there

We went there before a show at Ovens on Friday night. It was our second pre-Ovens show dinner at The Fig Tree. Both times the service and food were excellent. We now need to go there at a decent dinner hour, instead of 5:30 or 5:45 in order to make a show, and really savor the ambience/meal. Thank you Jennifer. You were awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to The Fig Tree to celebrate an anniversary. The menu was delightful, and all (as appropriate) arrived hot and perfectly prepared. This will be our "special event" place in Charlotte. Quiet enough for conversation.

We went to the Fig Tree to celebrate a birthday. It was small and cozy, and very beautiful. The found was outstanding and the service was excellent. It was quickly one of our favorite places to go for a special occasion. We will definitely be back.

This was our first time here. Everything was amazing. The foie gras was the hands down the best in Charlotte. I had the elk chop, it was outstanding. My husband and I will definitely return.

The immediate word that pops into my head is “perfection”! Their wine selection is awesome AND the gal that approached us immediately after being seated actually new what she was talking about. Eddie took over after that and served us flawlessly throughout our Anniversary dinner. We found ourselves planning our next dinner because the menu is so appealing.The Fig Tree exceeded our expectations and then some. Great bar area if you arrive early.

Amazing overall dining experience, from the front of the house who accommodated an additional diner and reservation time change, so the food service that was very welcoming and accommodating. The tasty food was the best part of a great birthday family reunion. Highly recommend!!

It was our 1,480th day anniversary and like always, Fig Tree was the perfect place to celebrate! We’ve come pre-theatre, for half a dozen other anniversaries and it never disappoints...food is spectacular, service is consistently among the best in Charlotte and the atmosphere is just so comfortable. Fig Tree is that perfect place for special occasions, but so good that you need to figure out why today is special enough to go!

Visiting Charlotte for packer game and wanted a nice dinner the night before. I knew it would be good when the earliest reservation I could get was 10:15. I had the elk chop and it was fabulous, my wife had lamb tenderloin. Food was great, service spectacular and great wine list. Would highly recommend.

Cat and I had an evening to kill in Charlotte and we found this restaurant on-line with great ratings. Our waiter, Kurt, made our evening more enjoyable with impeccable attention to every detail and complete knowledge of the menu and wine list. We started with perfectly prepared martinis and wine to complement each course. Cat had escargot and scallops and I had foie gras and the veal chop which Kurt said was recently returned to the menu. Each dish was cooked to perfection, but the veal chop was the high light, pleasing in every aspect. The foie gras was well presented and cooked just right, but lacked a little flavor similar to what we found in the other dishes. While rigorous to the highest degree in technique and presentation, the chefs might benefit from a little abandon in creating their masterpieces. We will definitely return if we find ourselves in Charlotte again and hope we are lucky enough to see Kurt again.

Amazing service, delightful ambiance, and delicious food. My wife and I live in Sydney Australia, and we were doubtful that we would be able to find a fine dining experience that matches our favourite spots in Sydney. Fig Tree went beyond our expectations. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Charlotte.

This was my third time to Fig Tree. Went for a friends birthday. Food was great and so was the service. We got three deserts because they all sounded so good...they were all incredible. I had never been sat upstairs and from now on I will request downstairs or patio...we were sat in a room with one 6 too and one couple, it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other. But I love this place!

My husband and I went for dinner before a show. The atmosphere was PERFECT! It was quiet, but not too quiet. We could enjoy our conversation without feeling that we had to whisper or shout. The server was very professional and knowledgeable without being stuffy. The wine list was beyond extensive! Then there was the food....the phenomenal food. Everything from the service to the bread, the atmosphere to the wine and food - everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend this for a date night, not so much for a group get together. We will definitely be going back!
