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!

I was there with my husband and another couple to celebrate my birthday. The service was absolutely impeccable. I couldn’t decide between the veal and the lamb, so I ordered the veal and my friend ordered the lamb and we shared...both were excellent. My husband ordered the filet, and this is the one dish, while it was ok, which did not stand out.

We would absolutely dine here again.

We have always enjoyed the Fig Tree.
This time our service was as great as ever, but we were disappointed at the temperature of our food.
The restaurant was pretty busy, but for a restaurant with its standards, this might be something to watch.
While wonderfully prepared, the arrived no-so (disappointed so) warm. Coolish fish and veal chop is just not going to be great.

We will still go back, but I might raise the priority of bringing warm food with a server next time.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and timed our meal courses perfectly, we were not rushed at all. The food was very tasty, fresh and seasonal. We will defiantly be back and will recommend anyone to try the fig tree.

Fantastic food in a stunning historic house. Service was excellent, ambiance was perfect for a date night, and the menu was very well curated. The wine list was great, the seafood special was delicious and my husband found the lamb entree to be perfect - jammy, gamey, and perfectly cooked. We’ll be back.

My partner and I came for our anniversary last weekend, and the food was stellar.

We both got the soup of the day add on with our entree, which was broccoli and cheddar, with goat cheese soup. The soup was phenomenal, the puree was a great texture perfectly creamy and I absolutely adored the goat cheese. My entree was the special of the day, sauteed striped bass over dungeness crab risotto, asparagus. Everything was cooked very well, seasoned well without being overly salty, perfect texture on the asparagus -- and a good amount of crab in the risotto.

My partner's meal was very good as well. Scallops over couscous and hominy. The scallops were absolutely perfectly cooked, very tender and sweet.

Service as very good overall -- they cleared the table professionally , between courses and based on the table size and the size of our party. The only thing I didn't love was that we felt a little " vibe" off of our server-- for not ordering an appetizer or dessert. He wasn't rude by any stretch, but we did feel a little vibe like we were being cheap, despite spending our anniversary there -- and it was for no reason except that my partner caught a cold and had almost no appetite but still managed to come out to celebrate. I did enjoy the cute homemade blondie that management brought out for our anniversary.

Overall it was a great spot -- romantic, good food, great service. Based on the food alone, I'd come back for a visit.

Menu was not extensive, but varied enough for almost any dinner. Preparation was excellent and portions were satisfactory. Waiter was educated to food preparation and the wine list. He was attentive without being intrusive. Ambiance was simple elegance and the noise level was perfect for conversation. Overall, one of the most professional dining experiences I have had in Charlotte and I was well traveled in my career.

Delaney, our server was incredible. Well trained and knowledgeable with lots of character. Between him and the impeccable service from the support servers, our meal was fantastic from top to bottom. The food was incredible, don't worry there. The wine list is 40 pages long. Your server will help you there with food pairing. Love this place. My clients were very impressed.
