welcome addition in moorestown
Excellent Mediteranean restaurant in Moorestown. A welcome addition and change of pace from casual, italian, asian, etc. The servers are always friendly and attentive. The food is excellent. And there is a kids menu too.

There is definetly a need
There is definetly a need for a restaurant with this unique cuisine offered which is a taste from the middle east. It is a welcome change from the norm i.e. Italian on every corner! The food was fresh and wonderful and it's a byob. This is the first time in a long time where we have been out on a Saturday night and we were able to have a converstaion with each other without having to scream. They have sound deadening squares on the ceiling that work and the patrons spoke normally. We will return and look forward to trying new dishes.

My new favorite restaurant!
My new favorite restaurant! Love love the hummus and pita! This was the first time I was there for dinner, have gone several times for lunch. It's a good idea to get there early (I've gone on Friday's) as by 12:00 there was a line out the door. Both lunch and dinner were fantastic. I'd definitely recommend.

My friend and I had lunch
My friend and I had lunch at the Blue Fig Cafe and enjoyed it. Needed a place to meet half way and based upon reviews chose Blue Fig. Cost for lunch was moderate, food was very good, and service was fine. Restaurant was not busy so noise was not a factor, but might be if crowded. Interior was nice, restaurant is small. BFC is BYOB. It is located near a Wegmans so I had a great lunch and did some shopping. Will definately go back.

Blue Fig pre-movie date
Get any kebab. And the soup is great but the stuffed grapeleaves were a little overcooked. Want to go back again and try more things. Need a good place for my falafel cravings.

Fit for foodie Mediterranian
Unexpected delight. Very good kabobs, grilled and a very nice change from the typical Italian or Chinese choices. A nioe menu choice of various Mediterranian fare. Salads were very good, the Greek salad not your typical lettuce laden Greek salad, in fact no lettuce at all! Choices of chicken, lamb, beef kabobs and combinations. A definite return, many returns.

Our first visit and we will
Our first visit and we will be back. Attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly service. Food was served promptly and hot! Everything was delicious and fresh-tasting. My only (very minor) complaint was that the tables-for-two were squeezed together a bit tightly: I felt like we were sharing a table with the couple next to us, and we were out for my wife's birthday. The wonderful food made up for that, however. I had the tabbouleh (first time I ever had it), followed by the "signature dish." If you're going to order that, pan on skipping the appetizer or desert or else you will be stuffed!

Great food, large portions w flavor
We've been here to eat dinner a few times and the food is always good. Freshly made and presented well. Portions are a good size. They do have a kids menu if you ask for it. BYOB. The desserts are excellent and I would encourage you to select a few to taste / share bc the descriptions don't do them justice. Of course the baklava is tasty!
My only complaint is that there were only two servers for the entire restaurant on Mothers Day. Had to ask for water refills a number of times.

I've been there numerous times and LOVE LOVE the hummus! It's the best ever! We took my son's and one son'e girlfriend who is a vegetarian. My son said that I was pumping it up too much so the expectation was too high, however she loved it! Food is excellent. We'll be back.

The server knew the menu and was able to offer several recommendations. Each item we tried was better than the last. Be sure to save room for dessert!

Lunch at Blue Fig's
Lunch was very flavorful. Options were good, menu was sensitive to vegetarians. Although we did not have dessert, the desserts looked outstanding. I will likely return and select dessert prior to the main meal.
Most definitely will return for lunch and/or dinner to select and taste the different options.
6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a return trip with guests and none of us were disappointed. Hummus and pita was very good as well as the mid eastern :capri salad", hallum cheese grilled with sliced tomatoes. The entrees, shiska- kabobs, and everyone got different mixes were excellent a choice of rice or couscous, so what can be bad? Nothing.
SO we will return again.

We were there on Father's Day, so they were a little busy. The food was very good, but the service was a little lacking. My husband had to ask several times for oil for the bread and also water refills. My daughter had the Blue Fig special and loved the lamb chop and beef kebob, but thought the chicken was a little dry. My Shrimp Tejan was excellent, just the right amount of spice. My husband enjoyed the Moussaka.The desserts were especially good, the fig tart and the espresso cake.

A go-to for mediterranean
Excellent juice bar selections. Grape leaves and haloom cheese appetizers and shish kebabs were expertly prepared. Save room for the desserts -- the knafeh shone, along with a generous set of other options . Good place for conversation, and a nicely designed interior. We will be back!

A small, local restaurant-
A small, local restaurant- nice ambience, quiet music, good service, a casual atmosphere & reasonable prices - all nice things when dining, but the real attraction here is the food! Everything fresh & freshly prepared, not overly processed or overly seasoned, cooked to perfection & served in a lovely, visually pleasing manner. We will definitely return!
Had "Tour of Lebanon" trio of taboulih (fresh & well-balanced) hummus (a bit bland for me) & baba ghanouj (WONDEARFUL!) Also had awesome falafels, light, fresh, flavorful; a great lentil soup w/ lemon squeeze; Kufta balls & something similar to Spanakopita, both tasty
The Blue Fig Signature Dish was amazing - all the meats were tender & delectable. The Moussaka was the best we've had.

Blue Fig- Consistently good
A last minute change in plans due to severe storms, we decided on the Blue Fig, This is another return visit for us. The Greek salad was good and enough for 2 people. Chicken kabobs and the accompanying sauces was also very good and tasty. The highlight had to be the fresh cup of coffee and the fig cake- outstanding.

One of our Favorites
Great food, friendly service, and the owner is always on-hand to make sure everything goes perfectly.

Small and more informal than
Small and more informal than we had expected. We ate early on a quiet Saturday night in summer. Food came quickly. A good selection of Eastern Mediterranean food. The kebabs and lamb chop were very tender and moist. We plan to return soon.

Worth a Try
Our first visit to this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The dips and entrees were very tasty and offered slight differences from that found at Greek restaurants. Prices were reasonable as were the portions. The interior is nicely decorated and there is an outside seating area. We will return.
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Quaint restaurant with great Mediterranean food. Had the falafel, baba ghanoush, mousaka, and shish kabobs. Everything was really good. The shish kabobs wee done perfectly. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Will be back to try other items!

Nice, moderately price
This is a nice, and moderately priced neighborhood restaurant. Service was very friendly and prompt. Owner visited the table to chat. Mediterranean food that was well prepared.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. We started with the greek salad, which contained very fresh tomatoes and cucumbers. Then we both ordered lamb kebabs, which were delicious and cooked perfectly. Our server was excellent, very polite and attentive. Will definitely make a return visit.

Tasty and different
We enjoyed our meal, and appreciated the fact that it was something different nearby. Left full and happy. Service pleasant. Waited a little while for food, it seems, but maybe it's what I ordered, or maybe we were just ravenous!

Nice atmosphere but not over
Nice atmosphere but not over the top. Good menu variety - steak, chicken, seafood, pasta - all Mediterranean style. Friendly and efficient staff. Moderately priced.

Great lunch venue
Quick service, perfectly-sized, delicious portions. We all had the shrimp skewers. Requested that they not be overcooked as shrimp tends to be and they were done just perfect! Flavors were amazing (try the spicy sauce with it). Had heard from others that the skewers were dry but not the case. Have had better pita bread but we didn't go there mainly for that. Would definitely return.

I really enjoyed my dinner
I really enjoyed my dinner at Blue Fig, I didn't expect it to have such ambiance since it is in a strip shopping center. The service was excellent and the food was very fresh and delicious! I can't wait to go back!

A more than pleasant surprise
My first visit to the Blue Fig was EXCELLENT!!! The staff was friendly and personable as well as being wholly knowledgeable of the cuisine. The food was outstanding. I seldom order kabobs anywhere because they tend to be grossly overcooked charred imitations of food. These were exactly the opposite. The vegetables, though tasting of some charring were excellently prepared and maintain crunch and succulence. The lamb and beef were incredible and prepared as requested. My date said that hummus was the best she'd ever had and she is quite the world traveler. Over all this was an outstanding dining experience. There was no live music, but it was fine with the recorded Lebanese folk music at a very low volume. Wonderful dining!!!

The hummus appetizer and kabob
The hummus appetizer and kabob entrees were outstanding. The food was perfectly prepared, the portion size was ideal, and the desserts were divine. This is a great option for a healthy family meal or a quiet dinner for two.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cute and delicious
Food was very tasty. The best baklava I've ever had! Fresh and not too sweet.
A nice place for a fresh, delicious meal with friends. A group of us went on a Monday and it was surprisingly busy! I will definitely be back!

We went for a birthday lunch as our first time and it was great. The service was good and the food was delicious. Can't wait to go back to try dinner!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was all very good. We were there on a slow night, so it was very quiet, but this is well worth visiting.

Great location and parking. Relaxing, lovely atmosphere. Generous portions of excellent food. Friendly, helpful staff.
