The Fig Tree Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Beautiful setting, they were a little late for our 8pm, but we were seated before finishing one glass of wine, so no big deal. The wine list was very extensive, and the menu was creative, but somewhat overpriced. Other recent meals at equally rated restaurants have been just as good/creative but about $50 less for the two of us. That being said, the food was excellent, though my veal was a little under-cooked. My wife's grouper was awesome; it made me jealous. Our waitress was amazing; the service can't be beat.

The food was spectacular and the service was superb. When I asked a question about the New Zealand Elk during the confirmation phone call, I had a beautifully hand written note with the answers when we arrived! That required wait staff and kitchen coordination and service.

I booked this restaraunt as a thank you for my partners family hosting us for a few days.
Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food and steered us in the right direction about portion sizes which was most helpful.
I had the grouper and lobster (first time I had eaten grouper) it was delicious and would thoroughly recommend it. My partner had the scallops which were equally good.
The pepper panacotta was disappointing ;too firm. All the staff were very attentive and helpful.
I would recommend this restaraunt to anyone visiting Charlotte.

As always our visit to the Fig Tree was a pure delight. We were warmly received by the staff who acknowledged our reservation promptly and professionally and acknowledged our special request for a down stairs dinning table. Our favorite bar tender, Ron, prepared our favorite drink to our specific liking and shared good conversation.
The wait staff was very attentive and professional. They had full knowledge of the menu and specials of the day which they explained in great detail. The red and white gazpacho was to die for and very fitting for the 4th of July festivities. My Trout was the best that I have ever had and was prepared to perfection as my wife's filet which was so tender it could be cut with a fork.
Again my congratulations to the owners, chef, and the entire staff of the Fig Tree for making our dinning experience so enjoyable and memorable we can't wait to return.

We sat in a quiet upstairs room where all four dining couples were celebrating an anniversary. Service was impeccable, menu selections were amazing, and wine list was clearly selected by a pro. We both opted for seafood entrees: the scallops & couscous and grouper/lobster with saffron risotto were prepared and presented waaaaay above average. Though nearly-always red wine drinkers, we chose an Anderson Valley Chardonnay which paired with our meals exceptionally well. We shared a fine dessert which the pastry chef plated with a special anniversary message for us. I'm so glad we went to the Fig Tree!!!

Granted we did have an early dinner, so if the restaurant was crowded it might be louder, but that is speculation. What I know for certain is that we had a great experience. Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent wine selection, and ambiance.
We'll be visiting as often as we can.

The Fig Tree never disappoints... Always great food and service. Wine is kind of over priced but you see that everywhere these days. I highly recommend wether it's a special occasion or you're just looking to have a great dinner on a Wednesday.

This restaurant is a nice place but IMHO is not worth the high prices, mediocre food, and lack of
ambiance. We were there for a special occasion that they were aware of. We were seated in a small upstairs room with 4 tables. With 12 people in this room it was not very comfortable. I was especially disappointed in the Elk Chop entrée. It was small, dry, and not very tender, and at $42 not great value. We will not be back.

They have unusual entrees, sometimes with elk, venison and other atypical meats. The pairings are excellent and the service is outstanding.
The food could have used a bit more seasoning and salt, especially the cold soup.
Otherwise, this was a very good dinner.

The perfect meal, the perfect service, the perfect everything. The reason this place is a mainstay is obvious. Do not hesitate to go. The wine list is also sublime. Jean Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc - enough said. Will be back!

An excellent experience all around. Our server was wonderful. He was pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the ambiance was great. We sat upstairs next to a group but it was still easy to hear each other. A fantastic evening. Will recommend and will return.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience, from start to finish. It was obvious our food had been prepared with attention to detail and flavor. Each accompaniment to the main dish ordered was absolutely perfect. We will be back.

Being a former chef, and having moved from the NYC metro area to Charlotte, I am always on the hunt for a top-notch restaurant here. The Fig Tree is comparable to any fine dining NYC establishment, with a much warmer service approach (we are still in the South, after all). I went for a birthday dinner, and the entire meal was beyond expectation. I highly recommend the escargot appetizer, lamb entree, grouper entree, and the beignets for dessert!

My girlfriend and I were traveling from the DC area and wanted to have a date night just the two of us before the wedding we were attending kicked off for the weekend. This restaurant has in our opinion and dinning experience the feel of a 5 star restaurant without the complete price of one. This is a steal for a get away night being the the food is excellent and reasonably priced as well as offers very fine and local ingredients. We were very impressed with the wait staff and our meal. I recommend this restaurant to anyone trying to have a romantic evening.
