Everything was perfect about this evening, and the food was outstanding. It is in a lovely historic cottage, we requested a downstairs table because of mobility issues--but the small upstairs rooms looked cozy. It was a quiet, warm atmosphere. Our server and his team were...More

The bar had a neat, glowing marble inlay top. The pear collins the bartender made for me was fantastic! The dining areas are wonderfully-preserved 1913 vintage with great woodwork and light fixtures. The spinach salad is really good with the calamari added, the seafood entrees...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.
