The Fig Tree Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was delicious and the service was great. Our waiter was very helpful in answering questions and the staff was very attentive. We were celebrating an anniversary and they brought us a dessert. We would definitely go back for another special occasion.
Very mediocre. When we walked in the door we were greeted by a very nice hostess and an overpowering seafood smell. Once we were seated the smell was less noticeable.
The food? Was good, but nothing to rave about. Wife had escargot as an appetizer and she enjoyed it. We both had a Ceasar salad, it was underdressed and over cheesed. For entree, she had the Lamb. It had flavor, but severely lacked seasoning, salt and pepper would have been a nice addition. I had the Filet, again it had flavor, but would have benefitted from seasoning.
Overall, it was ok, probably won't be back. Can get better for less.
My sister and I came here for dinner while she was visiting Charlotte for business. This is a wonderful restaurant. Our meal was so delicious. The handcrafted cocktails were fantastic. I highly recommend the scallops and Chilean sea bass if available. Also, the foie gras is spectacular. My grapefruit Martini was the best martini I've ever had. Will definitely return to The Fig Tree the next time I'm in Charlotte
Fig Tree really doesn't ever disappoint. The service while quit formal is very personable and top notch. But the food continues to impress with each visit. The Elk steak was very good and the veal with lobster was a great execution on a pretty traditional and rich dish. The appetizers stood out as being special and I seldom miss an opportunity to order stuffed squash blossom in the US, Fig Tree delivered.
We were celebrating an event and we were immediately recognized.
This was a return trip. My mother always requests to go here for her birthday sine my father died and we were hoping to make this a new tradition. This year; however, they did not acknowledge her like the year before. Last year she was served a desert with "Happy Birthday Mom" written in chocolate and a sparkling candle. After comparing pictures from previous years I was disappointed in the decline in quality. It wasn't just obvious in pictures but also in taste and presentation. Great wine selection though. I would consider eating here again but it would not be for a birthday dinner.
We selected Fig Tree for an early dinner on Mother's Day. Very welcoming--accommodated our last minute reservation and need to catch a flight. High standards for food and service. Everything was delicious! Lovely craftsman style home with seating both inside and outside.
First dining experience with the Fig Tree -
Upon making reservations I let them know we were on a limited schedule - we were going to a show at the Knight Theatre and wanted to make sure we would be able to enjoy our dinner without being rushed -
Upon arrival at the restaurant we were escorted upstairs to a lovely cozy dining room -
The waiter arrived briskly - letting us know he was aware of our schedule and assured us that we would even have time to enjoy coffee and dessert!
We made our dinner selections and every plate arrived at the table like a piece of fine art!
Appetizers, soup, salad, main entree and very nice French press coffee and desserts!
Every plate a work of art to the eye and orgasmic to the palate!
The wait staff of three - attended to us with great detail as tho they were performing a ballet - calm,cool and poised.
Our party of four enjoyed every decadent morsel!
We will most certainly return soon and share our dining experience with friends and family.
* five star - a dining experience not to be missed!
The cauliflower and saffron soup was very good. Elk was excellent. The Grouper smelled a little fishy, but the parsnip puree it was served over was amazing. The chef does a very nice job with beets, which is a nice twist. The beignets for dessert were excellent.
Kurt took great care of us! We had a last minute addition to our 2 top and they were quite accommodating. Great wine, yummy cheese plate! My filet cooked to perfection. My friend's pappardelle was amazing! Even a vegan option for our add-on guest with the portobello mushroom. Thanks for a great evening!
As usual our experience at Fig Tree was very good. However I would have to say that at $365 for three people (including tip and moderate priced bottle of wine), the whole thing is a little overrated. We go to this restaurant at least once a year and this is the first time the desserts were mediocre. Not to say this was a bad experience, just know the price/value ratio before you go.
My fiance and I dined before a concert and the service (Curt) was wonderful. We were seated on the porch and we had a very enjoyable experience. The food was superb (special care taken for our meals as we're in the middle of our Whole30 journey). We promise to return to experience wine with our meal!
Overall very good. The negatives are few but my elk was ordered medium and it arrived medium well and ended up well by the time i was finished. Still tasty and i did not send back because the meal would have been quite prolonged. It tasted good but hat to think of what i missed out on if cooked as ordered. The sides with elk were also very underwhelming compared to the rest of the meal.
Stuffed calamari- awesome
Sea bass- awesome
Wine list- ridiculous, we had a $40 bottle that was great
Service- top notch
Scene- great for special occasion or date night
