Romantic evening out

Planning a romantic dinner for next Saturday in Charlotte; and the lady and I are stumped. Any opinions between Halcyon and Fig Tree? Menuwise we're leaning Halcyon, but have heard that atmosphere might be better at Fig Tree. Any opinions?

  1. I think the food is better at Halcyon but romance may be better at Fig Tree. I would ditch both and go to Barringtons.

      Will take that under advisement. Many thanks

    2. I've never been, but you might want to look into the McNinch House. Very expensive, but supposedly great food, outstanding service, very intimate atmosphere.

        Another place to check out is CustomShop - had a truly memorable anniversary dinner there last year.

      2. I'd vote for Fig Tree if you're going for romance.

          Did end up making reservations for Fig Tree. Will see how it goes. I do appreciate all the responses. And apologize for the lack of city in the title.
