This place is fantastic, my only regret is I waited so long to go. It is small, it is in a converted home and feels like they took all the furniture out of a nice bungalow and set up tables. So if you are looking for a soaring and bustling dining room this is not it. We were there on... More

I recently had dinner at The Fig Tree - to date this is the best restaurant I've been to in Charlotte! Everything is first class - from the lovely vintage house and all its ambience, attentive wait staff and absolutely wonderful food and wine. If you have a special occasion to celebrate this is the restaurant for you!!

My husband brought me to the fig tree to celebrate 37 years of marriage. I recommend making reservations. Parking is available on both sides of the restaurant which is located in a house.

Hosted a small retirement gathering and the staff made it such a memorable experience. Unique menu prepared to perfection and exceptional service made it an equally memorable experience for my guests. For a special occasion or a romantic couples dinner, would highly recommend this restaurant,

As always we top off our trip with dinner at Fig Tree. And as always we're impressed. From the perfect service, bar, selection, fresh ingredients. We really love eating here! Tried most of the appetizers all delicious, best escargot. Split pea soup-fantastic. Great salads, focaccia. Love the pumpkin roll dessert.

Dinner on Friday nite for 6 people, everyones first time. No waiting at all, table was ready. Service was attentive, informative on specials. Good selection on wine list- we brought 2 bottles- only $20.00 corkage. Menu included Elk chops, chicken, pappardelle(delicious) and a stuffed calamari appetizer!! Great restaurant in a wonderful old restored house-- well worth it

I had grouper that was at best ok, my sister had the fillet which was very good. Salads were good, apple purse for appetizer was good. Wine list extensive and expensive . Foccasia was fresh and amazing. We sat outside under the heaters. Ambiance was great. Service was exceptional. I would try another main dish next time.

I have gone here a few times. Some individual trips, some with guests and even one holiday party. Overall the food is good and the atmosphere is nice. However, I have had some issues with service and it always seems to be missing that wow factor. Never dissapointed, just not amazed either. Good for a visit now and again.

Fig Tree is always perfect- perfect food, perfect service, perfect ambience. Over the years since it has been open, I've never had a less than a memorable experience.

This is a good, old-fashioned fancy restaurant. It reminds me of the "special" places I remember going as a kid with my parents (I'm in my 40's). This is definitely not the hip, new, trendy place. It's much more of a tried and true mainstay. Great decor, great service, great ambviance and really good food. Highly recommend for special occasion.

Chef-owned and operated, The Fig Tree Restaurant is located just minutes from Uptown in a beautifully restored 1913 bungalow. Chef Zanitsch's cuisine is Country European with an emphasis on wine pairing. The wine list is not only award-winning but also affordable; the service unsurpassed. Beautiful fireplaces glow in the fall and winter while alfresco dining on the veranda is a must in the spring and summer.
