Always a treat. Great food in a great location ( we ignore the speeders on 7th). Service is impeccable. Great to sit outside in February! Looking forward to Spring!

Fig Tree is rated as the top restaurant in Charlotte, which in itself doesn't really say much, as Charlotte is not known for fine culinary.

The food is decent, not spectacular. It's not refined cuisine, nor is it fine dining, if you use big-city restaurants for comparison. The staff are friendly, though not trained in the high end service that the restaurant's prices should warrant.

My frame of reference is experience dining in globally top-rated restaurants around the world, as well as extensive experience in the industry.

I hate corporate "chain" restaurants, but I would just as soon go to 131 Main in S. Charlotte. It too is not "fine dining," but the food is always good (fresh) and the servers are well trained.

We come here once per year and are never disappointed. The service and food is always impeccable. The pacing is perfect. You never feel rushed or like you're waiting for the next course. One of our favorite restaurants.

Each course was delicious - started with escargot (the sauce!!!). My husband has elk chop with a coffee crust he said it was excellent. I ordered the filet, it was like butter!! I did not care for the gorgonzola topping and the Red wine reduction was a bit sweet. For dessert we had the sticky toffee cake it was silky and chocolatey. Ice cream was clearly house made and cake was moist. In addition the roasted garlic spread for the homemade focaccia was sweet sweet and hot at the same time.
The wine list was extensive but our wonderful server helped me pick a smooth cab.

My husband has ordered the elk chop here several times this past time the elk was raw in the middle, sent it back to the kitchen returned raw again and he was expected to eat the raw meat I guess. Very strange fine dining experience probably will not return after that with the prices being the highest in the city.

Fig Tree is a wonderful, romantic, unique experience to have in Charlotte, NC. The staff goes above and beyond with communication and attention to detail that doesn't overwhelm you but makes you feel very comfortable in the setting. The food is exceptionally delicious and worth every dollar. The location is a beautiful old house that has been restored, I do wish the interior design was a bit more updated to enhance the features of the restored home - but nonetheless a great ambiance for a date night. Fig Tree will definitely make the list of date nights.

The food and service have been great every time we've gone. Somehow with the tables spread out some (I presume), this was a pretty noisy visit. That wasn't expected and did make our visit a little more challenging than normal. A lot of, "what, I can't hear you" at the table.

I had not been to Fig Tree in years due to travel until recently. I made my reservation to eat at the bar with Mark and told them I was coming to pick up the wine I had ordered. Mark is just the best bartender. It was good to catch up with him. The food was amazing and staff equally as good.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday, it was our first time dining here. We enjoyed the experience. The moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with friendly smiles. Our server Michael was very attentive and helpful. Oh and the food was amazing. We will definitely return.

Flew in from Florida to celebrate husband’s birthday. Wonderful food and presentation. Was disappointed that there was no acknowledgement of Husband’s Birthday although I had made notation on open table and communicated to server.

The Fig Tree is the hidden gem in Charlotte. My husband went to culinary school here in 2010 and we can’t believe we just found this place!! Everything we were looking for in a meal. Small plates to share and desirable entrees. Our waiter Rich was knowledgeable on the menu and hustled with having 5 tables. Not once did we feel that we weren’t getting the best service. We got almost every small plate they had and even got one twice- their special was fried oysters! This meal was incredible. Can’t wait to go back.
