My husband and I, along with another couple, enjoyed an amazing dinner at The Fig Tree recently. Tucked away on a quiet part of the street, this cozy restaurant was perfect for an anniversary celebration. It's a charming atmosphere where you can softly hear people...More

Our evening at The Fig Tree was excellent. The veal carpaccio was exceptional, as was the filet mignon and the grouper with lobster tail. The icing on the cake was the chocolate bread pudding. Service was outstanding. Cannot wait to go back!

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.
