    The food was average with several items being quite bland. Service was relatively slow with only one waiter for the entire restaurant.

    There seemed to be one server for the entire restaurant. We felt rushed ordering, forgotten about for the most part, not attended to during the meal and the bus boy tried to take our food away while we were still eating. I really wanted to like this place but we couldn’t relax enough to enjoy our meal sadly.

    We chose a new restaurant for our 29th wedding anniversary. Sadly it was subpar in service and food. Even after we told the waitress it was our anniversary she was indifferent either way. We were outside on a chilly night but heater was great. We order the dinner for two which was a nice assortment of items. Dips were tasty but would have preferred warmed pita to cold chips. Warmed pita came later but it would have been better if introduced earlier. Kabobs were seasoned okay but very dry. Baklava was delicious. Maybe we hit this restaurant on a bad night but it was mediocre at best. Sadly we will not return.

    Decent mediterranean food. A little pricey for what it was. Ambiance was moderate, not my favorite place, but it was fine. They also tried to rush us a little so they could seat another table at 7, but whatever.

    Great outdoor dining experience on a really quiet and beautiful street. The service was great and the food was pretty good. I got the falafel and was happy with it, but had much better falafel other places. The hummus, salads, and meats were delicious.

    We went for our first time for a family (of four) birthday dinner. Ara (the owner) was at a table next to us. Anie was our server. The food was wonderful, and the ambience and service were fantastic on a Monday night. It was a perfect night to sit outside. Family recipes -- Ara's mother is the chef -- amazing aromas and taste. Everyone in our family (meat and veggie alike) found something to their liking. We will definitely be back. Thank you Apricot Stone family and team for a great birthday dinner outing and time as a family!

    Book your table now! Authentic Armenian food. A meal that invokes such beautiful flavor memories of my grandmothers, aunts and my mom. Be sure to finish with Armenian coffee and turn your cup upside down on the saucer for luck. In Armenian, you tell the cook “may your hands be blessed’ after an amazing meal. At apricot stone, their hands are blessed.

    Atmosphere was incredible even with our table closer to street parking. Filet Kabob was the most tender we have have had, anywhere…. ever. Each bite starting from the appetizer to dessert was perfection. Despite not having many servers we never had to wait long or remind him for anything. Very attentive and informative. We can’t wait to return.

    Went for a friend’s last dinner in Philly before she moves. I couldn’t figure out if it was a BYO so we didn’t bring and it is so know that’s up front. We ordered hummus, baba, lebni, and muhamara dips which come with pita chips. The duos were fantastic but I would have preferred pita for ease of consumption. The falafel came with pita and was very good. My friend liked the manti but the rest of us are vegetarian so didn’t try it. The fattoush was very fresh. We each ordered a spanikotpita and cheese boreg because they are small. The cheese boreg was out of this world delicious and the spanikopita was ok. We ordered one of each dessert. The baklava was pretty good, the khataif was delicious and very sweet, and the gatnabur was too heavy on the blossom water for all of us. All in all a delightful experience.
