We ate outside and there is plenty of seating. The food was fantastic, I had the veal chop. The service just as good. We had 2 deserts and they were both delicious. It is an expensive restaurant, and worth every penny. Can't wait to go back.
There were a lot of really great reviews for the Fig Tree, so I went in with expectations of a nice meal with good ambiance. Make sure to read the lower star reviews too. The service was 50/50. Half the time appropriate, half the time inappropriate. Our mains came out before the appetizer, which our server had just forgotten. It happens. The team worked together to ensure all guests were served, so that's a plus. The wine was the best part of the meal between two entrees and a dessert. The waitress fished when I didn't want a box. It just wasn't good enough to take home risotto that resembled boiled rice more than risotto. The medium rare ostrich was medium well. The deserts change constantly, but the ice cream was pretty good.
One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. Anything on menu that ends in Chop is amazing always cooked to perfection, Veal, Elk,Lamb I cant ever decide. Tell them to add calamari to salad it is the best. Beggars purse or escargot for apps.
Everything tasted amazing and unique! Cozy and elegant historic atmosphere. Great service and great location. A must go with that someone special! Don't forget to make reservations ahead of time, you will for sure need to.
Fabulous. Excellent wait staff. Delightful menu with a great assortment of dishes. We chose 3 different appetizers, soup, then dessert. Good wine. Pleasant outdoor dining in a residential area. Thoroughly enjoyed this dining experience!
