My visit to the Fig Tree was wonderful. We ordered a bottle of wine and had the cheese plate.... really wonderful. I was surprised how reasonable the price of the bottle of wine was and food was great. We sat and ate and talked - we were never rushed. I will definitely go back.

Seasonal items - so we go about twice a year- Summer & Winter. A bit of a splurge- but worth it! Be adventurous and get things that you would not normally cook yourself.

This is the third time I've been back there in as many months. The first visit was with a friend and we hadn't made reservations . We sat at the bar....it is small but very cosy. The welcoming bartender was very knowledgable about her craft and especially about the menu offerings. It's nice to know that the owner/management takes pride... More

This was for my wife's birthday and we had 22 people, they put together a perfect limited menu for us and did an absolutely perfect job with the delivery. They consistently have a high quality of both food and service, with an excellent wine list. It is in my opinion one of the top restaurants in Charlotte.

Great atmosphere, food and service are the keys to Fig Tree's success. Nothing like having a fine dining opportunity in one of Charlotte's best neighborhoods. Whether you dine at the bar or at a table down/up stairs, the Fig Tree's ambiance is very suitable for a business meeting or an intimate dinner with family/friends. Unquestionably One of Charlotte's Top Restaurant... More

Description
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.
