Wait staff was friendly and offered very good service, and the food was delicious! They have outdoor seating, and the house in which the restaurant is located is beautiful. Perfect for a special night out!

I believe that personalizing the dining is something that this restaurant seeks to do. I don't think the menu has a section or icons labeling gluten free (or vegetarian, or any other special need) but I do think the server... More

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.
