We had a wonderful dining experience at Apricot Stone. The service was fantastic and the food was nothing short of amazing! I have frequented this restaurant several times in the past year and always enjoy our time there.

This is a great restaurant

On a Saturday night it can get crazy - but worth the wait and the owner - ( the man ) was very understanding and kind

Would definitely return!

This was an unexpected gem! The two restaurants we had in mind for dinner were booked solid, so we popped in to Open Table to see who nearby had availability. My Cousin is Armenian, so that line in the description piqued my curiosity - we booked immediately.

The place was cute, quiet and just enough off the beaten path to feel like a secret. The food was exceptional and for my Aunt and Cousin in particular it evoked long lost memories.

Beyond that the service was attentive and intimate and the recommendations were both passionate and authentic. We’ll definitely be coming back!

This was our first time and we'll definitely be back! The food was absolutely extraordinary and the portions were HUGE! I had to take some of my platter home. It is a little bit cramped in the restaurant - if the weather is nice, I would recommend the patio.

My boyfriend and I went to Apricot Stone for a late Valentine's dinner. We got the dinner for two deal that included items across the menu and was amazing. This place is BYO which was perfect for us. Since it was a saturday night, the small space was pretty full but didn't take away from the experience. The dips and skewers were to die for. The baklava dessert was perfect, not overly sweet. I have already recommended this place to a lot of my friends that live in Philly after the great experience!

Great Meditteranean find. Friends suggested as they had been there before. The $55 special for 2 was a steal. Took leftovers home. Great Falafel, grape leaves, kabobs, everything. BYOB to boot. We will be back.

I have been to this restaurant several times and the food is always great. It is reasonably priced and the portions are great. It can take a while depending on how busy they are, but your food is hot and fresh when it arrives. I would definitely recommend this place and anything on the menu, the lamb especially.

Baba Ghanoush was amazing, delicious and smoky. Prices are very affordable for the food that you get.
Parking is a little tricky if you are new to Northern Liberties. Lots of other stuff to do there - stores, restaurants, comedy club, etc.

We ordered al a carte form mostly from the meza and dips, then each had a kabob.

As always a meal worth across country trip! We live in Seattle now and there just isn't any good Armenian food there. Everyone a Apricot Stone is so nice and welcoming, and the food is SOO GOOD.

I was told to try this spot for their hummus and their Baklava being one of the best in the city and I must admit that it truly was! It is a small, quaint little spot with friendly and helpful staff. The food is spot on and delicious. I tried their Kibbeh as a starter and then went with the Chicken Kabob platter with Hummus and Tabouleh. It came with a pita and rice pilaf which was AMAZING! I then got the Walnut Baklava as a dessert while I waited for my trio of dips (Hummus, Lebni and Muhamara) to go. I am still savoring those dips at home as we speak...the Muhamara is a definite must! I will deff be returning!

A friendly atmosphere, with food that tastes like someone's mother, is in the kitchen. Good place on your Keto cheat day, as you will want to eat the pita chips in all the tasty sauces.
