The Fig Tree Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Eating at the Fig Tree was such a great experience! It's located in a house which is very cozy. The food is amazing and the service matched the quality of the food. Though expensive I think it's a great spot for local and well prepared food. I'll definitely be returning at some point to try more of their dishes since they have an exotic and rotating menu.
Great food and excellent wine list. Table was on time. Service prompt and excellent. My one significant criticism is that they continue to accept big tables and place them adjacent intimate groups. We had about 10!businessmen at a dinner adjacent to our table of 4; they were well behaved and quiet, but it is a bad dining concept and reduces ambience. For a restaurant if this caliber, it isn't rocket science, so figure out a solution!!!
This restaurant was a joy! From the moment we walked through the door to the moment we walked out everything was perfect.
The menu was small but very well thought out. We were a party of 3 and we all had multiple choices within minutes of looking at the menu.
We had apps, mains, and dessert. Each and every course was a case study in how to run a fine dining establishment. This was simply the BEST experience that any of us have had in a long while.
Also need to mention that the service was impeccable. Our waiter struck that perfect chord between unobtrusive and being there whenever needed.
Cudos to the owner(s) of The Fig Tree! I only wish that more restaurants could be this wonderful.
Took K there for her birthday. Was warmly greeted and they wished her a Happy Birthday and promised they would not sing at her table ! We had a glass of rose champagne to start with. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and we each found an entree ( trout & pork chop ) that we ordered.
The food was good but nothing special, particularly at the price point charged. We both had a glass of white burgundy, which was very good and each had a dessert. The bill was about $170 with a tip.
It was a pleasant evening but at this price range I'd go to Lumiere.
Best restaurant in Charlotte in my opinion. But Saturday night was an off night. Service was fantastic (incredibly well run restaurant). Ambiance was great as always. But my elk was chewy (bad cut) and had some weird creamy sauce which took away from the meat. And the cheesecake dessert was way too tiny.
I had planned a special evening for my sister's birthday and The Fig Tree restaurant exceeded all expectations! Fabulous staff, the amazing atmosphere and unbelievable food. My sister has a taste for very good wine and the wine list met her taste....😊 I will definitely recommend this place for dining and I'll definitely be bringing my boyfriend here for date night.
The Fig Tree is probably the best restaurant in Charlotte. It has very fine and unusual food, like the Elk that was on the menu this week, and the best waitstaff. Our waiter, Ty, always seemed to know when we needed something without having to hover. My tuna and my wife's veal loin were both delicious as were the Dark Chocolate-Hazelnut French Silk Torte and the Beignets.
We';re not wine experts but there is an extensive wine list.
It is not the cheapest restaurant but for a special occasion, you can't do better.
This was our first visit to The Fig Tree and it most certainly will NOT be our last. The atmosphere was wonderful and pleasant... the service was second to none and the food was remarkable. Thank you for creating such a memorable and delicious food experience for us. We can't wait until we have out of town family come to visit, just so we can take them to The Fig Tree Restaurant.

A very nice evening. And what welcome dining experience! It is not often that throughout a meal I find myself thinking about how relaxing, rewarding, delicious or spot-on a meal is but this was one of those meals! Our water, Rich, was knew the menu, appreciated our questions and provided, for us, the perfect level of service. My wife's stuffed calamari appetizer brought to mind the best we ever had in Thailand. My frenched elk chop was as good as I have ever had--perfectly aged and cooked to perfection. We both love the arts and crafts ambiance of the old Lucas house and happy murmur of contented diners around us. And having a wonderful Peter Michael chardonnay and a well-cellared Clos Erasmus added to our enjoyment.
The food was good...my wife had the filet which was cooked to her liking and perfectly done...truly melted in your mouth...aged beef or so it tasted that way...I had the lobster and grouper...very buttery tasting but good...lobster was cooked perfectly. The lighting was very dark/dim, it was an 8pm reservation but plenty light out, the interior setting was just dark. The service was very attentive and great!! The rest of the staff was warm and welcoming. I would eat here again but we were advised that the menue does change outside of a couple of staple items. Thus not many options for side items or soups. Again a good place to eat and there was an option to eat outside.
The Fig Tree is the essence of fine dining but without the stuffy atmosphere some places have. the location is a renovated house with excellent outdoor dining on the front porch and a small garden area in front. The menu is amazing with excellently prepared dishes for a wide scope of tastes.
