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.

Fig Tree located in a Beautiful Craftsman-style home in Charlotte. It is a very good restaurant with exceptional service and ambiance. The service was friendly and not the least bit pretentious. The pacing of the meal was excellent. Food was very good, but I would not say I felt the quality of the cuisine justified the prices. I had the lamb with mushrooms and pumpkin empanadas. Each element was very good on its own, but the flavor profile of the combination was unbalanced. The taste of the mushrooms was too subtle for the lamb, and the taste of the empanadas was too strong. I did not try the filet mignon my guest ordered but it looked very good. The wine selected by the chef was an excellent pairing with both dishes. The deserts were excellent. All in all, I enjoyed the evening and I will return again. Note that menu on their website may not be the same as the selections on the restaurant menu.

We've been to Fig Tree several times and used to really enjoy it. The food is good but not all that special or creative. Servers were not all that knowledgeable or enthused about the dishes. We're in no hurry to return.

Fantastic 1st visit. 30th anniversary.
Beautiful setting, Everyone kept wishing us a happy anniversary. 2 other couples in our room were also celebrating theirs, awesome. Exceptional attentive service, and food. We had the Escargot and Octopus appetizers and for mains, Veal chop (huge and tender) and the special which was Trigger fish. for desert we shared the Beignets .wow. Well worth the $$$.

This restaurant was an amazing dining experience. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. The food was great, ambiance was great. The only reason the noise level was moderate was because we were seated near a large group of people who were somewhat loud but it didn't bother us at all. They were celebrating something as well so it's too be expected. Once they left, it was very quiet. I really enjoyed Fig Tree and will be looking to return upon my next visit to Charlotte.

My work team and I had a great time at fig tree. The food was great, the service was wonderful and the wine selection was outstanding. We tried the foie gras and cheese plates as appetizers. The foie gras was the highlight of the meal for me. For dinner I tried the elk chop which was very good - not as game-y as I was expecting. I would definitely return!

If it weren't for the fear of biting bugs, we would have sat outdoors which was very nicely decorated. We were seated in a room upstairs by ourselves next to a window air-conditioner that was quite loud in a cold room. After turning the AC down, we did enjoy having the room to ourselves with very attentive staff. My mushroom soup with truffle oil was decadent and warmed me up instantly. We had a bottle of BV Tapestry with elk chops and duck entrees that were superb, and shared cinnamon sugar beignets with ice cream that were delicious. We had a great time in the intimate setting. :)

Visited the Fig Tree for our 23rd anniversary. My wife and I were looking for something outside of the steakhouses and the larger upscale chains in uptown Charlotte. We were not disappointed. The craftsman style house is charming and a unique setting for a restaurant. Upon arrival we were greeted by the hostess and was congratulated on our anniversary. We were promptly seated upstairs in a quiet room that may have been a bedroom at one time. Service was absolutely amazing throughout the evening. The food was excellent, however the menu is limited.

The Fig Tree's food is excellent! Service is also excellent. The wine list is fantastic although heavy on the California wineries. The two negative I have are that it is extremely expensive so be prepared to drop some serious money on dinner and the table location upstairs where we sat had an a/c duct above us so it was too cold. They attempted to run the a/c down but to no avail. Recommendation is to sit downstairs or outside weather permitting.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. We were expecting a romantic vibe and quiet atmosphere for our special evening and this place delivered it all. Food was unique from other places in presentation and mix of ingredients, but very tasty.

If you are a foodie this is a must while visiting Charlotte! It deserves its high rating. The service is on par with any Michelin starred restaurant. The decor intimate and pleasing. And, the food is outstanding. We had the foie gras, elk tenderloin, and carrot soup. Great wine list, too. Highly recommended!!

I had the filet and it was done perfectly. The mushroom and cheese topping was a great taste combo. The service was friendly, attentive, and professional. This will be the go to restaurant for special occasions. PS. The elk chops are great too!

The veal chop and scallops were superior! Presentation was superb, and the ingredients of the entrees were exceptional!
The wine list is massive and the Chardonnay was such a treat to the tastebuds! I will include the glass price, because I cannot remember the label.(16$)
The service was wonderful and the beignets with French press a delightful ending to our meal.
We were in a small upstairs room, and....it was soooo quiet you could hear voices easily at each of three other tables....might suggest some type of soft background music?

We were in town passing through, looked up top restaurants & The Fig Tree came up. What a wonderful find. The food was fantastic & so was the service 'Chase' was out waiter. I only wish this was close to where we live, We would be regulars..

From the first step in the door the dining experience was great. The staff was friendly without being overly formal, our waiter was knowledgeable and didn't hesitate to offer suggestions when asked. The food was fantastic, elk and veal chops, preparation was spot on and accompaniments were well thought out. We will definitely return.

This Fig Tree event was outstanding. Dinner with good friends is always fun; but, this evening was special. The food was terrific, the wines were exquisite and the service was off-the-chart. Both couple will be returning and advising others to come.

I've heard such great things about Fig Tree and was excited to finally give it a try for our anniversary. Here are the positives; excellent service, wine list and ambiance. The historic house is beautiful and very romantic. Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed in the food. There are a handful of excellent restaurants in Charlotte, this is not one of them.

After all high recommendations in tripadvisor, we booked a table. Even though booked weeks in advance, they could not seat us outside. The food was ok. Took a while to figure out what to eat, as many dishes ahead many, almost too many ingredients for my taste. It was ok, service was ok, but I would not return
Pros: The service and drinks were outsta ...
The service and drinks were outstanding !!
The Grouper with lobster tail and the Elk chop was excellent!
Calamari appetizer was the best!
Lobster sauce served with the Grouper was VERY VERY rich. Overwhelming!
A lot of work needs to be done on the braised red cabbage.
Improvement on Spaetzle needs to be done. Undercooked and bland.
