- Hidden GemOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/20/2014Great Mediterranean local neighborhood restaurant! Menu variety. Good, friendly service. Appetizing desserts. Well prepared meat (chicken, lamb, beef) and vegetables on skewers with small tasty cous cous were enjoyed by myself and guest. Mixed fruit drinks were enticing as were displayed desserts.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Enjoyed the 'Fig'BlueFigDelightsDined on 7/18/2014The Blue Fig Cafe is a BYOB restaurant in Moorestown that specializes in Mediterranean cuisine. They deliver a pleasant atmosphere and delightful meal. The appetizers and entrees my wife and I had was delicious. The server, Jessica, was able to explain the items we weren't sure of, and made great recommendations. She was prompt with our food and checked in on us with a warm smile at appropriate intervals. We sat at the outside tables and had plenty of room to talk without feeling too 'crowded'. The menu is a bit limited in its offerings, and hasn't seemed to have changed since our first visit a year or so ago. A very good experience, and enjoyable meal.Special Features:
- BreezyOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/11/2014The food was very good - appetizers were excellent and definitely authentic Middle Eastern flavors and ingredients. The entree choices for dinner were somewhat limited but well prepared and very tasty with beautiful seasonings. My lamb kebab was tender and delicious and my partner's combination beef and lamb was also full of flavor. We shared one of the homemade traditional Lebanese deserts made with semolina and sweet cheeses. The taste and texture were a totally new experience but wonderful - worth being adventurous! Service was very good and attentive, she explained each dish and answered all of our questions. We will definitely return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food and serviceLarrySDined on 6/21/2014Nice variety of mediteranean food Everything was attractively presented, hot, and tasty. Wait staff was attentive. BYOB -- they opened our bottle and offered ice for our white wine. We've eaten here several times and enjoyed our dinner each time. We recommend it.Special Features:
- Great foodHdmdrxVIPDined on 6/20/2014Finally ate at Blue Fig and was pleasantly surprised. The place is small but not too cramped. There's outdoor seating facing a parking lot and bank. The food was great. My husband had the moussaka and said it was the best he's ever had. I had lamb kabobs and the lamb was lean, tender and very flavorful. Baklava was not my favorite but I like it moist with lots of honey. Highly recommend a visitSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Wonderful experience!LoveDiningOutVIPDined on 6/7/2014This was our first visit to the Blue Fig for the six of us. Everything about the evening was great. When we arrived, we were promptly taken to our table. The menu had a good variety so we needed some additional time to decide. We each selected a different appetizer and entree so that we could sample multiple menu selections. The meal was well paced so we has time to pause and enjoy the night. If I has to describe the meal in one word. It would have to be "WOW".Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service IssuesFOODIE1Dined on 6/7/2014Food was good, but there could have been little more portions. Also the wait staff is young and in need of a little more training.

- Return to Blue FigitzarobVIPDined on 5/21/2014We are regulars at Blue Fig and have always had a great meal. Greek salad is more than enough for 2, feta cheese appy is great, fresh feta cheese splash of Olive Oil, and a shell. The Blue Fig combo signature dish was very good as well as the chicken kabobs. The coucous is excellent. Always a nice meal and at good prices. Keep up the god works.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Shishkabab recommededMindo4uDined on 5/10/2014The filet on the shish kebab was outstanding -the flavor was amazing and it melted in your mouth. Also the grilled veggies were to die for too! Warm pita topped w/ feta was a great appetizer.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Blue FigOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 5/2/2014Starter sampler is good, but not special. Cod entree was very good. Others in the party enjoyed their entrees. Desserts such as the fig crumb cake were very good. Recommended;we will return. Nice BYOBSpecial Features:

- A Pleasant Surprise!AnneDined on 3/30/2014Hubby and I were alone for the weekend. Checked open table for someplace different to have dinner. Chose Blue Fig and were very pleased. Dinner was served quickly by an excellent young waitress named Alex. We had shish kabob which was made with filet mignon. It was delicious! The meat was extremely tender and flavorful. The grilled veggies were also great. We will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lived up to expectationsDaisyDined on 3/22/2014I did not know what to expect when I went to this restaurant but I relied on others reviews to guide me and found that they were correct the food was very good. I found the place very clean and staff very nice- the only negative thing I have to say is that the menue is not that extensive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty Mediterranean in NeighborhoodJandADined on 3/21/2014The appetizer (Tour of Lebanon) and entrees (Kabobs) were uniformly good. Dessert (Baklava and Sorbee) were also excellent. Service was attentive. Atmosphere is casual and BYO. Expect about $35 pp including tip.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointedCoreyVIPDined on 3/14/2014We've had great experiences at Blue Fig in the past but our most recent visit last week was disappointing. While service was decent, my Tajen Cod had no flavor or spice, and the tajen it was served in was cool to the touch. Is it not cooked in the tajin any longer? My wife's Salmon also lacked flavor and spice. We used to love the home-made pitas and looked forward to them but sadly they are no more. The pitas that were served tasted like a reheated bagged variety. With regret, I cannot recommend Blue Fig any longer :(
- HEALTHY AND TASTYMomioDined on 3/13/2014My friend and I enjoyed the fresh, appetizing meals. The Lebanese-mint tea was in a teapot with an attractive glass provided instead of our traditional cup; it was delicious. My chicken kabobs were tender with just the right seasonings.The couscous and the salad that accompanied my meal were tasty. The server was very attentive and pleasant, answering all of our questions completely. My only problem was that the dining area was cold, and I was thankful that I had worn a very heavy sweater that afternoon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Authentic home made MediterranenLive2EatVIPDined on 3/9/2014Fabulous appetizer of Tour of Lebannon. Cod fish stew was also unique and excellent. Baklava also excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We were a party of 5 and hadElmiDined on 3/8/2014We were a party of 5 and had a reservation for 6:45 PM. Upon our arrival the table was not ready. We waited about 15 minutes. When finally showed to our table I had to ask manager/waiter to sweep under our table as there were dropped food on floor everywhere. We had to wait again for drinks to be offered and waitress forgot to bring our water as requested. While waiting on our drinks we noticed that other "walk-ins" were seated immediately. The food was satisfactory.
- A sweet gem of a restaurantYumYumDined on 3/8/2014This is our second time eating at the Blue Fig and it is a gem. The food is consistently good and the service is wonderful. They do not rush you so you can relax with friends and family.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always good Mediterranean ChoiceMicahBVIPDined on 3/7/2014We probably hit Blue Fig about once a month now. A nice change of pace when dining in the neighborhood. The kids always enjoy it. We like having the BYOB. And the servers are always friendly. Excellent Mediterranean/middle east cuisine. And also good as a change of pace for lunch as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Local findBurndocVIPDined on 3/1/2014Blue fig is great. From being greeted by the owner to dessert which is a must with some Turkish coffee. The service is attentive, the food is delicious . It is a wonderful inviting restaurant that I cannot wait to return to soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- One of our Favorites!MCBtravelerVIPDined on 2/26/2014We always enjoy eating here. This time, we did the "Tour of Lebanon", which is a wonderful way of sharing a lot of great starters.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- This is a great find for thoseLindaDined on 2/19/2014This is a great find for those of us who appreciate whole foods. And we all know that Mediterranean cooking is so healthy. At Blue Fig it is also delicious!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Glad we found itOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 2/14/2014We went to Blue Fig Cafe for Valentine's Day because another, more expensive, restaurant was booked. We're so glad it was! We love Middle Eastern food. Everyone raves about Zahav in Philly, but you can keep Zahav. We'll keep Blue Fig Cafe!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Valentine's dayAndyDined on 2/14/2014This is the second year we have gone to Blue Fig for Valentine's Day and we try to get there at least once or twice a year. This is a great restaurant close to home. We will keep going back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good choice for mediterraneanMicahBVIPDined on 2/13/2014It was a snowy night and we were actually on our way for Indian when our 5 year old said he wanted "Blue Fig chicken" (which is his way of saying chicken shish kabobs). Blue Fig always hits the spot for authentic Lebanese cuisine, almost always starting with the Tour of Lebanon appetizer and some sort of grilled meat for an entrée. Good dessert selections as well. And BYOB. Owners and staff are always friendly. They get a lot of repeat business. Beats the same-old chain or Italian choices for a change of pace. Kids and adults alike never complain when we offer up Blue Fig Café as a dinner choice. And it is great for lunch as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- While the food was delicious,OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 2/12/2014While the food was delicious, the service was horrible. Couldn't get attention for pita for our baba ganoush or a refill on iced tea. Luckily the food was good so I will go back! They need another waitress during a packed lunch hour!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Falafel heavenwingfriedDined on 2/7/2014The food was delicious, but the restaurant is small and filled up quickly. So, I would recommend reservations on weekends. The only booths are near the doors and tend to be cold in winter.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- You won't be disappointedLisaDined on 2/1/2014We've visited this small cafe before but were unable to get a table - reservations highly recommended. We opted to sit at one of the two booths for comfort but they are right by the front door and it was in the 30's outside so we kept getting a cold draft... The rest of the seating looked tight and we didn't want to be cramped. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and timely. The food was fresh and tasty. We shared a Blue Fig salad as it was large - plenty for two as an appetizer with fig vinaigrette. Very good. We not opted for the Shish Tawook which was nicely seasoned chicken skewers with grilled veggies and choice of cous cous or rice. We ended with an espresso soaked cake which was made in-house and was delicious. This is a BYOB.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Finddrsutton4Dined on 1/25/2014We were a party of 7 and each of us loved each dish we ordered. We will definitely go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent taste of a varietyDocTomDined on 1/17/2014Excellent taste of a variety of Middle Eastern cuisines at a very reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful wait staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mediterranean in MoorestownMicahBVIPDined on 12/13/2013When we want something that is not the same-old--whether a Ruby Tuesdays, Italian or Mexican--Blue Fig is always a pleasing option. Excellent Mediterranean dishes--from hummus to lamb. The servers sometimes lack a little polish, but always aim to please. It is not inexpensive, but when you add the convenient location and BYOB--it does the trick. It is also casual and family friendly. And our young children (who can be picky) usually sign off when we announce Blue Fig on a Friday night after school pick-up. Also a good option for lunch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great middle eastern findMAMADined on 12/7/2013coming from the city, its hard to find a restaurant with the hip urban flare and great food. the blue fig in moorestown met all my expectations for ambience, service, and good food. I especially like their hummus and lentil soup. The coconut sorbet actually comes in a half coconut shell. I've had the kofta on two different occasions - the first time was for lunch and it was much more moist.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GreatEarlDined on 12/6/2013I am writing this two days after our dinner at Blue Fig. I'm sitting in Blue Fig as I write this, awaiting my take out order to feed a dozen family members. We love this place. Great food - always truly fresh and prepared perfectly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
