Great restaurant. This is one of two restaurants in Charlotte that I believe stand out from the rest. The food selection and preparation are excellent. Not the least expensive restaurant around but worth the price.

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.
