My husband brought me to Fig Tree for my birthday. The ambiance was wonderful. Low lighting, quaint seating, although a little close to the other dinners for my liking, but a good use of the available space in the restaurant. We were seated next to...More

What a dining experience! We had such a great time that at one point all five of us were shocked when we looked at the time and almost two hours had passed. Foie gras, sea scallops and apple beggars purse appetizers were a perfect start...More

Hadn’t eaten here in about 4 years. Ranked #2 in 2018’s Charlotte Magazine’s Top 50 restaurants, I thought I’d check it out again. Did not disappoint. Our waiter, Cory, who’s only been there 3 months, was a pro. He was well-versed in the extensive wine...More

Insanely huge wine list and that made it difficult to decide. That’s probably the only negative thing I could say! Our waiter was phenomenal and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. He said he had only been working there for three months but you’d think he...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.
