    We often come to Ficus above, and we always enjoy the food, the ambiance and the service. The Chief makes a great job and the staff is very caring. A great experience.

    The food, service and ambience were exceptional. The menu was very creative and flavors tongue tickling. High compliment to the chef. The gallery brings an innovative sophisticated touch to your dining experience. Highly reccomended for an intimate memorable experience.

    Restaurant was interesting. Decent food at moderate price. BYOB goes a long way. Nice patio that I hope to sit on when the weather is warmer.

    The staff were outstanding. They were very nice and accommodating. The food was terrific. It’s a small menu. Our party of 3 tried many different options including the burrata appetizer and the mushroom soup. Yum! Our main dishes were all fantastic including the flank steak, bronzino fish and the cauliflower steak. They were all terrific dishes. The cauliflower was perhaps the weakest out of all the dishes only because I felt it needed a little more substance since it did not fill me up. My only complaint is the noise level but everything else was terrific and we will be going back.

    This was our first time at Ficus and we were very impressed by the quality of the food and the service. Love the fact that it's a BYOB. Only advice we gave the server was that they should have more than 2 desserts on the menu. While the menu didn't have a lot of options, they were diverse and there was something for everything. Much rather have quality over quantity any day! Will definitely be going back.

    Food deserved four stars but service, while friendly and responsive, was not up to the standard that seems to be the goal of the kitchen.

    This is second time we have been and we got the Octopus again which the first time was very good. This time really good but they gave us 2 small pieces not worth the price. Steak and the Bronzino were very good. Only 2 desserts to pick from so we did not got this time. No specials and a very, very small menu.

    Excellent service, modern and chic atmosphere, and well executed, interesting dishes. Portions were slightly uneven (some generous, others just a few bites) and I look forward to seeing the kitchen continue to evolve the menu. Overall, really excited to have a new and innovative fine dining option in central NJ. 5/5 looking forward to my next visit.

    I visited Ficus with a group of friends during the weekend. The food was amazing! We had branzino, octopus and some other dishes. Every dish was exceptional great, price was reasonable, and the artsy environment left a great impression. I recommend to everyone and I will definitely come back soon!!!

    Good food. Friendly wait staff. Kerema was our waitress. She was friendly and attentive. Their problem is that their kitchen is slow. They have a small menu but the choices are good. They should advertise that they are byob.

    First time here and it is a small upscale restaurant. We shared octopus which I would rate an 8 as it was a little chewy but good. Main, I had Bronzino which was excellent. My husband had the duck with was very good also but served on a large white plate with 2 pieces of duck and the rest of the plate pretty bare. They only had 2 desserts on the menu. The menu is limited so I thought they would have had a couple of specials but did not. They also have a nice out door area weather permitting.

    Fantastic food quality and real chef Very pleasant service The decor and noise of the main room isn’t at the level of the cuisine but it makes the palate delight even more special BYOB so you may want to plan with the menu ahead especially with this cuisine quality

    Come upstairs to the restaurant (inside seating or outside on the terrace), you will enjoy the food and the ambiance. The food is **excellent**. The menu doesn’t offer a large choice, but every plate is a delight for the eyes and for the palate - you can’t be wrong. Prices are reasonable, staff is very kind and caring. A great experience. Only for dinner, hopefully they will offer breakfast and lunch soon!

    The food was delicious and everyone was very kind. The decorations and paintings were beautiful and the view from the balcony was magical and overall it was a very high quality experience. Aside from the food they also had very good unique drinks.
