The Duke Mansion staff (bless them) recommended this close-by restaurant to us. We loved it. The food and experience were first rate. I had the lamb shank, and, as an expert on eating lamb shank, I pronounced it one of the top two I have had in my eating life. My wife had two appetizers - the Lobster and the... More

My girlfriend and I reserved a table before the Hornets game while visiting Charlotte for the weekend. We were promptly seated and presented with the day's features. The waitress was excellent and we were kept busy with an appetizer and bread while waiting for the meal. I ordered the salmon and it was cooked to perfection. I definitely recommend this... More

Our waiter was great and made sure we had an excellent meal with his service! We were having an anniversary dinner and were able to enjoy an exceptional dinner with a very good complementary wine for the meal.

Fig Tree has its devotees but I have always thought that it is a little pretentious and overpriced. The menu is good but not especially inventive. I've dined there a couple of times and can't remember what I ate. The old house that it occupies makes for an interesting experience and it is good for a business meal because you... More

Love the bar at Fig Tree. Small and intimate but the bartenders serve up hefty drinks and good conversation.

Based on reviews, and a friend's recommendation, we booked an early reservation time and celebrated a special occasion (milestone birthday). The menu was quite unique, as well as the setting, but it enhanced our dining experience. It was not only fun, but it was a change of our normal. The entire process of booking the reservation and being seated was... More

Fantastic!! Two visits and I'll be back! Excellent food and service with a :-) The fish dishes are the best I've ever experienced. The appetizers are excellent but small servings. The old home ambiance is charming.

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.
