You can't go wrong with one of their plates! The Mediterranean grilled cheese is also fantastic.

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!

Umm, freaking deliciousness on every plate! And the owner is super kind, he saw me drop my wife off & pull off looking for parking. My wife called me a minute later, told me to come back because the owner was moving the outside heaters to create a parking spot for me. So kind & thoughtful! We'll be back!

Food was excellent and so was value. Service was average because server had way too many tables and no help. Not her fault.

We sat outside and did not have any issues with the cold as the heat lamps were great at keeping us warm. We ordered the dinner for two and the portions were plentiful and delicious.

Apricot Stone did a good job offering outdoors dining options by having both an enclosed patio area and open air area. The food was outstanding and interesting. We tried some different dips and spreads which we had never experienced before.

Pros:
Sat us immediately and corked our bottles for free. The put on the heaters since we sat outside due to COVID. The staff was superb at customer service and followed up on us a reasonable amount of times. There lamb and chicken kebab platters were excellent. The Baba ghanouj was tasty and thick, It’s a different style and I like it. I would recommend anyone to come and have some wine and enjoy the food, especially the lamb, perfectly
Cooked and wasn’t stingy!

Cons:
I like this place I’ve been here twice before this review. I would always recommend. Here’s my only negatives from the three times that I went.

They didn’t have hummus or tabbouleh and we went there specifically for the hummus.
The taziki was okay it was watery and huge chucks of cucumber, and that’s not how that’s supposed to go (they did take off for that) and we’re understanding.
The fattoush however, I felt as though was missing, sparing on the greens.

This restaurant was absolutely amazing! My mom and I have been searching for authentic Mediterranean food since moving to Philadelphia, and Apricot Stone is exactly what we have been searching for. We both tried platters with chicken shawarma, lamb, and filet with an array of sides and dips. We loved all of it, especially how fresh the cucumbers with dill sauce were. We recommend this to anyone trying Mediterranean for the first time, or those who are seasoned Mediterranean eaters, they have something for everyone.

Came here for my birthday and was not disappointed. We left very full and happy for a fraction of the cost of other Mediterranean style restaurants in the area. I would absolutely recommend Apricot Stone as a great BYOB spot for shareable dishes as well as ambiance.

Such delicious food, great service. We ordered a bunch of different plates and the waitress even offered the dinner special that gave us everything we wanted plus dessert for a lower price. She gave some of her personal recommendations too, which were all phenomenal. It's such a nice outdoor area, with some Armenian/Mediterranean music in the background. Really transports you to another time. The staff was all very safe with masks and gloves. I felt very comfortable and can't wait to go there again!
