Food was tasty! Menu was well marked gluten free items however I was disappointed there wasn’t even a non-pilaf (gluten) rice option which would have been nice with the meats and sides.

Outdoor seating for covid. Some chairs were on uneven surfaces, and thus wobbly. Seating itself seemed a little busted. Hookah smells next door were a little off-putting. Good, casual food, but only water to drink (no other drink options). Would probably take out/get delivery vs. returning to this location.

I had a late reservation, my waiter seemed perturbed that I would book that late and told me that I should’ve booked a reservation for earlier in the night if I did not want to feel rushed. Good flavor on the food, meat was a little dry maybe due to the time of the reservation and day.

The service here was outstanding, and so was the food. We were seated at a very small table outside which felt cramped and intense as it was in the walkway. Had we had a bigger table, review would have been a 5

Had the dinner for 2 a great value was more than we could eat. Not to worry the food taste just as good the next day. All courses of the dinner came out at a steady pace our server was attentive but not over bearing. Many different flavors to choose from. We will be returning

We were very disappointed as most of the reviews we great. The service was really terrible our server barely payed any attention to us and was very rude. We ordered a trio of dips and after getting such poor service and actually not bring very impressed with the food we decided to skip the entrees and go somewhere else. The only good thing I can say was the atmosphere was nice, although the tables are entirely too small we could barely fit our plates we had to keep moving things around to have room, and we asked if we could move to a larger table and of course the said no

We very much enjoyed Apricot Stone! The service was friendly and attentive, the food quality and presentation was excellent, and the value was the great at average of >$40 each for a party of 4 for four courses. Outdoor seating is pretty much the only option here, it does not appear that there is or ever was an indoor option, however all seating is set on the quaint Liberties Walk well off the street and fully protected from the elements.

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.
