The Fig Tree Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Our evening at the Fig Tree was incredible from start to finish. Steve, our server, was incredible all night long. The timing was spot on in terms of when our courses were brought to us. Water's were never less than half full. The cocktails were great, I really enjoyed the Scottish Vesper. The Elk and Veal Chops were both cooked exactly how we asked for. We will definitely be back.

Went here for a birthday dinner for my boyfriend and I. The food was amazing- delicious, great selection, perfect portions! I also had a tasty cocktail called The Bostic. One thing about the tables- we sat at a table for 2 that was a little wide, we felt a bit far from each other. Waiter was very nice!

Travelled for business from Chicago for the weekend. This came highly recommended on Yelp. Did not disappoint - excellent meal. The only small complaint is that the table for two was quite long and it was somewhat difficult to converse.

One of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte, my husband and I had a very enjoyable meal from start to finish. Wonderful service, ambiance and lovely combinations of flavors, we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to have a romantic meal or taste Charlotte's finest.

I'm not from Charlotte but met a friend for a "foodie" weekend where we went tasting bf around Charlotte. In my research for a nice dinner in town I look for the most consistently listed restaurants from a lot of lists. Then I look at the menu, atmosphere, etc. My study led me to The Fig Tree and once again my methods proved correct. What a wonderful place with great food. The atmosphere is awesome! Each room of a home built in 1913 turned into a dining room. Our table was in a room that used to be a bedroom and was right next to the wine room that houses over 1000 bottles that is consistently touted by Wine Spectator.
Kurt was our server and what a great one he was. Soothing voice and very knowledgeable and personable. We started with the cheese plate which had a selection of 5 different choices and the most amazing honey comb that blended so well with the cheese (and everything else). We ordered the lamb and elk for our entrees. The elk is dish that has been on the entree selection longer than any other and for good reason. It was amazing! Great grill taste on the outside and so tender inside. The land was the same. Such a wonderful flavor and cooked perfectly. We shared beignets that had a coffee ice cream and they were served warm and wonderful. By that point we really didn't appreciate them as much because we were so full!
Oh, the wine list. When your wine list is 2 inches thick it kinda means you're serious!
I would go back in a heartbeat and will plan on it!

As with most restaurants in Charlotte, rated a 4+ but really a solid 3 (due to the server who really stood out). Other than that, solid ok. If you're in the neighborhood, and can walk right in ok. If not, don't save this for a special occasion.

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.
