After four years of dining for special occasions at the Fig Tree last night was our last night ever coming here. The quality of the food and the portion sizes have changed in the last year while the prices have gone up. We had to...More

Trip Advisor’s point system doesn’t allow for fractional points, so the issue, in some cases becomes whether to round up or round down. The Fig Tree could have been a perfect five. We were greeted and brought to a table very quickly, and, when my...More

Hey there. It's only a 22 minute drive to Charlotte and this restaurant is just about five minutes south of the center of uptown. It's definitely worth the drive.

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.
