Is it the Terrace Cafe actually? I could not find anything called the Park Terrace...

I would second this suggestion. We have dined there several times. We have gone there for a few special occasion dinners (wife's birthday, V-Day). Probably one of the best, upscale restaurants in town. Plus they make it point on their wine list of reducing the markup on more expensive bottles of wine, so a nice bottle is likely to cost less than other places.

Zebra in Southpark would also be another suggestion (Zebra Restaurant Charlotte North Carolina).

Or if you really want to do something top-of-the-ladder, you could do a dinner at McNinch House (Fine Dining Restaurants, seven course Dinners, Romantic Restaurants, McNinch House Restaurant, Charlotte, NC) - very pricey and, to be honest, I think I prefer the food at Fig Tree, but we went there once with another couple for their anniversary dinner and if you want to do a nice dinner out that is an "event", and out of the usual, the experience of dinner there will make that happen.

Here's the "Move". If you make a reservation at the Fig Tree (Which I suggest) ask to speak to the chef or his wife (who is the hostess). Tell them why you're coming and what your wife's favorite dish or food is and see if there's anything special they can do. They will go out of their way to do something for you, or prepare a special dessert.

Try that at McCormick and Schmicks

I have actually been here and it is outrageously expensive to be in a tacky house. Food was nothing great either, the bill was well over $400 for 3 people.

We will be celebrating a very special anniversary ( >10) in August. We might go up to the Shelton Vineyard, go for a wine tasting and tour and have dinner at the Harvest Grill, on premise, and then stay at the nearby Hampton Inn. Should be fun, romantic, and much less expensive than a trip to the French wine country.... or even Napa for that matter.

Try taming down what you drink. I go with my wife and get out for about $100 and we don't drink anything but tea.

The house was built in 1913 and is historic. Tacky? I guess that's a matter of opinion. IMO the Olive Garden is "tacky"

Friday's is "tacky"...Fig Tree is quite low-key and classy. I also think its relatively inexpensive for an upscale restaurant with high-quality food; I have found dinner bills here to be less than bills we have racked up at places like The Palm or Capital Grille (and the food is better).

Did the Fig Tree used to be a different restaurant (like 10+ years ago?)
