The Fig Tree Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

To the individual who cooked my elk chop, Thank you. I felt like an ancient warrior consuming the spirit of a worthy adversary. I asked for rare, and you served me life. I am a poor man from South Carolina, and you enriched my life during my evening at your restaurant. I was turning 30, and not wanting to celebrate my journey across three decades. You made it worth every breath i have taken in my walk with the world. I am overjoyed I found your restaurant, and I am grateful I drove specifically to try the elk chop. I was not disappointed, I was in awe. Thank you to the sacrifice of the consumed elk, thank you to the culinary artists, thank you to the well-mannered waitstaff. Perfection can not describe my experience.

The service is some of the best I have ever had! The staff is all so friendly and works together to ensure a wonderful experience. The salmon was average but the scallops and the special were excellent. It was quiet when we first arrived but a table of 8 people next to us was quite loud - but did not take away from our experience at all.

We were a party of 8. We had indicated both when we made the reservation as well as during a confirmation call that two of the party were vegetarians. The waitress was unaware of this and was not particularly helpful besides pointing out the only vegetarian entrée (which was obvious) . She did eventually come up with another option off the menu, but would have been helpful if she had been better prepared. I have not been to this restaurant in some time, but at least on this occasion the service did not seem to be up to the same level I had experienced in past visits.

Date night with my girlfriend.
The appetizers are amazing: foie gras, escargot, stuffed calamari.
I had the grouper and she tried the elk. Both very good. Elk too mineraly for her taste but cooked very well.
Had beignets for dessert which was very good.
Excellent experience overall. Will definitely return.

This has been a "want to" for over 5 years. My expectations were easily met. The service was outstanding (thanks to Samantha). My wife had the grouper w lobster and saffron risotto. I'm not a fine dining level chef, but I do grouper dishes and risotto and hers was delectable. I had to go w elk chops w spaetzle and braised red cabbage (the German in me). My meal was executed to perfection.
So worth the wait and hoping it's not another 5 years before we return.

One word, STUNNING. Everything about The Fig Tree was perfect for my family visiting in town for Christmas; decor, atmosphere, menu, drinks, dessert, our server Ryan, YOU NAME IT. The Fig Tree is the best place you can bring your out of town guests. The menu is challenging only because you won't know what to order and you won't want to miss out on anything coming out from the kitchen. I highly recommend the escargot appetizer and the lamb chop entree. All of the desserts are outstanding. Thank you for the perfect evening!

Th food and service was very good. The restaurant is in an old home in a historic part of Charlotte. We felt there may or may not be a great backstory that they could play up...either the home or the area. Our waitress was terrific, keeping us informed and was nonplussed when my meal came EXACTLY as I ordered it yet had to ask to send it back to be heated a little more (my fault). Very nice evening.

This was my first time dinning at The Fig Tree. We started with escargot which was delicious accompanied with the homemade bread and Gorgonzola sauce. For Entree I went with the famous Elk chop. It was phenomenal taste is in between steak and lamb. Full of flavor! I would recommend this restaurant for dates or special occasions. Wine list is very extensive and food menu is a bit pricey but well worth it! Servers are also very attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back.

A special occasion dinner, and the food and service were fantastic. The menu items were perfect and accommodate all tastes. The dessert menu was very good.
This is a great sport a for special occasion as it is the TOTAL OPPOSITE of a chain type establishment

Service was very attentive, cadre was intimate, wine list was extensive, I can find no bad things to say about this place other than the price, which for a full-course meal including wine came out to about $100/person. It was definitely worth it, though.

What can I say!! WOW!!! Dinner was delish!! We started with a cup of the celery root soup. My first thought was EWWW. But our server highly recommended it. It was fantastic. A unique blend of flavors. Truly an explosion of flavor!! Next was the spinach salad served with warm bacon dressing. We added pine nuts and goats cheese. I could have made this my main meal it was fantastic!!! Our entree choices where the elk chop which was cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth tender and the chicken served with orzo and spinach. Both were cooked perfectly and tasted superb!!!

I took my fiancee here for her birthday. Had left a note in my open table reservation and everyone (the hostess, waiter, and busser) all told her Happy Birthday...the chef also wrote a little message on our dessert! Wonderful service and, while a bit pricey, the portions were on point. I got the elk chop and she got the salmon - loved them both. Randomly, my side caesar salad was possibly the best caesar salad I've ever had (get the calamari added). Will definitely return!

The Fig Tree provided my friends and I with a lovely meal and fantastic wine pairings. The good was interesting, well plated and prepared, and tasty. The setting was beautiful and comfortable and the wine list is exceptional.
We will eat here any time we are in Charlotte.
