We always end our girls shopping trip at The Fig Tree. The food is fabulous as is the service. Their apps are so good it's hard to save room for the delicious main courses. Pacing is nice tho so they give u time to digest.

The historic building provided a romantic ambiance. Small rooms with about four tables provide quiet areas for talking, though other conversations can easily be overheard. The maple bacon spinach salad was excellent, but cost $6 extra with the substitution from the house salad and the addition of goat cheese (but well worth it). It was a great spot for a birthday dinner. We made a 5:30pm reservation on a Saturday because that was the only option, but even when we left around 7pm it wasn't crowded.

Food was fantastic. We ordered the veal chop and the lamb chops. The lamb was delicate in flavor and had a wonderful texture and tenderness. I normally dislike lamb because it typically has a very gamey lamb flavor. This lamb was very much like what I've eaten in Europe - delicate yet still hearty. The portion was huge. The veal chop (also huge) was cooked perfectly, and its accoutrements also shone bright.
Server was very attentive and friendly.
If I could have changed one thing, it would have been to make the dining room a touch brighter. But the lower light level didn't take away from the experience.
Will definitely be going back.

Absolutely the best restaurant in Charlotte!! Had the beggars purse as an ap, the veal chop for our meal - was entertaining colleagues from NJ and Atlanta who were convinced Charlotte had no good restaurants. They're left impressed!

Never disappoints. Over the years, Fig Tree has been one of our very favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The reasons are myriad. The food preparation and quality is consistent and excellent regardless of the dish chosen. On this night celebrating my wife's birthday, everyone enjoyed their choices. The veal chop, elk chop, lamb chops, halibut, and grouper with lobster were all great. The Caesar salads are always very good as are the escargot. We always finish with the beignets which are the perfect end to a sumptuous meal. Of course, as usual, the service was impeccable.

Awe - wait for it - some. This place never disappoints. Octopus appetizer, filet mignon for me, my wife had the surf and surf special, chocolate torte for dessert. Nice wine pairing and my old fashioned was just right. Everything was amazing. Love this place.

Every aspect of the Fig Tree was Fantastic, Rich our waiter and the staff were on point every second of our meal. We let Rich make a wine suggestion to go with our meal and it was Perfect. We can't wait to return as this was our first visit. Thank You for making our Tenth Wedding Anniversary Dinner So Wonderful.

I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and we had an excellent time. The restaurant is gorgeous, the wait staff is pleasant and knowledgeable, and most importantly the food is outstanding! Highly recommended!

Our server, Ashley, was attentive and professional. We had dinner outdoors on the porch, and the weather was perfect. Great view of the skyline. Our food was wonderful, including the mushroom soup, and parpardelle with portobello. We had a little hiccup with the lamb chops, which came out too rare the first time, but this was promptly corrected by Ashley, and the medium rare replacement was delicious! We finished with panna cotta and cognac, and left looking forward to the next visit.

We live really close to this gem but hadn't been in for dinner, that won't happen any more. Eclectic menu, enormous wine list and white glove service. Our server Curt wss both friendly and knowledgeable. He real made our experience enjoyable.

The restaurant is very nice and the service was very good. I ordered elk and while the sides were very good I did not like the meat. I think I learned that I do not like elk. Everyone else in our party enjoyed all parts of their meal.

Food was excellent and the service was top notch. Our first visit, even though we had passed by the restaurant for years and said " We should try that restaurant out some time". Not sure why we took so long, but we will revisit.

We had a fabulous experience at Fig Tree this past weekend! Wonderful ambiance, fantastic server (Ryan), and a truly exceptional dining experience! The New Zealand elk chop was a wonderful kick off to cooler weather, along with chicken pate' and Beignets to end the night. Fantastic wine list with a great wine recommendation from Ryan. We will definitely be back!

I came to Fig Tree for my sister's birthday. The food was on point and very delicious. The service was flawless, the servers knew the menu and did a great job pairing wines with the meal. I just told them what I was looking for with flavor profiles and they brought us the perfect wine for each course. I told the restaurant that we were celebrating my sister's birthday and they brought out a dessert with chocolate piping; "Happy Birthday." This was a great finish to an excellent meal. Thank you staff and kitchen at the Fig Tree Restaurant.

From the moment we walked in the door the service was nothing but excellent. Our dinners were delicious (veal steak for my wife, elk for me) and cooked to perfection. A great birthday dining experience for my wife. We have an anniversary in a few months and I will make a reservation for that night.

Was really looking forward to dinner based on recommendations. However, food was very bland and not full of flavor. We were dining a little later, so maybe that had something to do with the quality of food. The fish was over cooked and again bland. I will say the service was outstanding and the wine list was amazing.

Overall, it was great. Excellent food: delicious and interesting without being unnecessarily exotic. Atmosphere was quite nice, though if everyone else in your room is being exceptionally quiet, you'll definitely feel like you have to be as well. I especially appreciated that we never felt rushed through our dinner; they encouraged us to take our time.

Only been once, and it was won derful. Great bartender, great waiter, overall service. All knowledgeable, polite to a fault, and formal. Food was excellent, with a wide variety. A wine list for those with greater and a wider variety of tastes then I. Seasonal food was mentioned, I look forward to returning. For me, it was $$$ but well worth it.

The Fig Tree never disappoints! We have celebrated several special occasions there and it offers the perfect atmosphere for your occasion. The house is quaint and romantic. The service is personal and they are very attentive. The food was amazing! Desert was to die for! We spent time at the be after dinner and "Mark" the bar tender whipped us up some special drinks! All around one of our favorite spots. Can't wait to go back again.
