What a great find. Apricot Stone is a BYOB with great food. The portions are generous so bring your appetite! We all had the plate platters and could not finish. Unfortunately we were from out of town and couldn't savor the left overs. Chicken Swarma was delicious and the falafel (4) was great -- not dry and the perfect texture. The babaganoush was really good. This is fun place for friends. It's between 2 streets down a cafe style seating ally. Super quaint and really good.

This is my go to destination whenever I have dining companions who want vegetarian or vegan options which are plentiful on the menu. The BYOB feature is a plus. (The well stocked PA state wine and liquor store is only few hundred yards away). I am never disappointed by the tasty and lovingly prepared dishes. The possibility of dining outside while watching the passers-by just adds to the experience.

We had a reservation for 6 PM and they told us that we had to be out by 7 PM. We were fine with that until we sat down and realized no everyone else around us had been there before we got there and was still there when we left. We felt rushed and the food really wasn’t anything to love. Very pricey for what you get. I was also EXTREMELY excited to try this place because I love Mediterranean food and this place had great reviews. I was pretty disappointed :/

The food was excellent, especially anything with eggplant (baba ganoush, imam bayaldi). We also really enjoyed the rice pudding. Service was friendly and on point.

WE had the best dinner. Ordered 4 appetizers and they were fabulous. We all had different dishes with lamb and they were absolutely delicious!!! The lamb was very tender and the rice pilaf was excellent. Israeli salad...yummy and of course baklava.....we sat outdoors....and we brought wine. A PERFECT EVENING WITH FRIENDS!!!!! Thank you...

Our dinner was a great experience, we were early and the server was very welcoming and she immediately brought out ice water to the three of us. When they opened the food feast commenced.
Every dish was fresh and delicious. The server remained friendly, smiling and attentive.
It was a great evening, we are planning to go back soon.

Everything here is delicious. Such a rich, vibrant little nook in a big food area. Food is absolutely delicious only critique was that service was a little slow. There was a lot of out door seating and the place was filled so understandable. BYO too!

Good Mediterranean food with good prices. Nothing was "amazing" but everything was above average. Good place for people in the neighborhood looking for an affordable place to eat. It's BYOB which we sadly didn't know until we were sat, but it looked fun to bring a bottle of wine and eat good food!

What a great experience! Such good value for the food you get, and being a byob is an added plus. 3 of us shares the Dinner for 2 + one additional entree, and it was plenty of food! The service was great, it was surprisingly very loud and rowdy for a Friday night (lots of large parties inside). But it was a great time, highly recommend!

Family came into town, and I had been wanting to try this place for a while. It was fantastic! Meat was well seasoned and cooked to each of our likings. Dips and salads were excellent, and I was happy to snag a table as it is small and Intimate inside. Loved it and will be going back!

The place is plain-Jane, packed (on a Saturday night--reservations are a must), and noisy, but the food is superb, at great value. It's BYOB--and one of the waitresses kindly chased my husband down the street to make sure he could find the nearest wine-seller. In addition, since it had started raining heavily while we were eating, the owner actually gave us an umbrella that had been abandoned by a previous customer. What a nice guy! We plan to return the next time we're in Philadelphia.

The menu at Apricot Stone May look like the familiar Greek menu. However the food just tastes so much better due to the seasonings. The mezzo plates are all fantastic. The large plates all include a choice of sides. I chose the eggplant with tomatoes. It was the best eggplant ever.

I love this place. It’s small, the menu is simple, and everything is so unbelievably delicious.

The best falafel and stuffed grape leaves in the city, bar none. The dips are fantastic and the meat is always cooked and seasoned perfectly. The place is BYO which rocks, and they always treat you like family.

Love love love it here

This is my favorite restaurant in Philly hands down. I have visited this restaurant countless times to dine in and order takeout and delivery. All I have to say is, they are reasonably priced, consistent, and always put the customer first. This is a family owned business where they really put their heart and soul into their delicious food and giving customers a positive experience. I will keep coming here over and over!

We had a very fun experience. Weather allowed sitting outside (highly recommend) which led to a fun, festive atmosphere. The owner made sure we had what we needed, checking in appropriately and not intrusively, sharing stories of menu dishes he had in childhood and his mom cooking everything for the restaurant. We both had the mixed plate - the lamb was outstanding and my boyfriend loved the chicken and filet. Definitely get the coffee - hot, rich and delicious. Love that it is a BYOB as well. Overall, a great value and fun dining experience.
