My wife and I went to Apricot Stone on a date night. It was a nice occasion. The service was good. Not too oppressive but attentive. They seemed like they might have been a bit understaffed but we have just come out of the pandemic and so many places are understaffed. The food was delicious and I have been to quite a few middle eastern style restaurants. We sat outside on a warm evening and it was very nice.

My husband and I went on our first date night in over a year and we decided on Apricot.
The food was delicious!! My favorite was the beer salad...beyond delicious.

The place was a cool vibe. Very busy with lots of people but it wasn't disruptive at all.

I will def be back!

We really enjoyed our meal — it was our first time there. Overall, the food was delicious, And we will probably go there again. The kibbeh was a little greasy but very tasty. We are a bit spoiled by the on location baked pita at several other Philadelphia Middle Eastern restaurants, but considering how impossible it is to get reservations at those places, this made for a very enjoyable night out.

We love to go to Apricot Stone. The food is incredible, and the prices are fabulous. However, the service has gotten extremely slow. We were there for over 2 hours. We were most frustrated when our mezze was dropped at the pita but no pita to eat it with. Instead of it being the first thing the server brought back out we watched her run in and out of the kitchen bringing things to other tables. We totally understand that things were busy, but we had to remind her to bring them out to us after 10 minutes. Overall, the fact that there was one server for the entire, fully booked restaurant did not lead to a great service experience. I love not feeling rushed out of places, but the length of time we were there was just not justified.

It's always more than delicious. We ordered cheese bereq and three dips. We also order lamb skewers with rice pilaf, salad and dip. Baklavah to finish our meal. Can't wait to go back

We had the dinner for two. All of the food was excellent from appetizers through dessert. The stuffed grape leaves were savory. The falafel were particularly amazing. They were extremely flavorful and had a perfect crunchy outside. The lamb and ground beef kabab were delicious and moist. The rice pudding and paklavah were great. My only criticism was that the pita was dry.

We had an amazing outdoor dining experience with gorgeous early spring weather! Once the sun was down, our servers offered to place a standing heater near our table and it took care of the temperature right away. The service was great, food was delicious and portions were large. Can't wait to go back!
