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
Friendly staff, and amazing food that is cooked with love. Feels like home. Dips, salads, veggies, breads, meats, and desserts. BYOB. Must visit.
Absolutely superb. I will definitely be back!
Great food would absolutely come back.
food was excellent, service was superb, loved location of outdoor table. Would absolutely return
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.
Food was delicious!
My favorite place to go. We moved a few years ago, and make trip just to go to Apricot Stone.
Our 1st time here but not our last.
We had the Mezze platter which offered an nice variety, lots of food and all of it was decicious
Great service!! Great food!
Nice place for Mediterranean food. Good seating area outside. Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. BYOB provides nice flexibility.
Beautiful romantic atmosphere. Love that it's BYOB. The staff was very friendly. Food was delicious and flavorful. Great portions. Will definitely go back. I felt like I was dining in another country.
Feel so lucky to have a new awesome place in our neighborhood. Loved that it's so popular you need to make a reservation on a Tuesday! Great service, great food, and overall (most important to me) great overall vibe!
Authentic Meddle Eastern food in a pleasant outdoor patio.
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.
Wonderful ambiance and the food was fantastic!
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!
Always delicious food with friendly and knowledgeable staff!
Waitress was very helpful with suggestions. Patio outside area was great and we didn’t feel rushed despite it being fully booked.
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.
Great food. Smoke from hookah bar next door was a nuisance.
Food was yummy and service was quick! Will definitely go back
Great byo in Northern Liberities. Delicious lamb kebab, eggplant salad, tabouleh, and rice pudding. Very pleasant and efficient staff. We will definitely be back!
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
The vibe here was great, food was excellent, waitress was a sweetheart. 10/10.
Always great food! Fresh and feels like homemade. We go to Apricot Stone regularly
Food was delicious. Service was great.
The prix fix menu for two was phenomenal! Plus outdoor dining in the pedestrian plaza felt authentically Mediterranean! Definitely going back.
One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Have probably been here at least 20 times. Great food, price, and service. Can’t say enough good things!!
AMAZING!! completely satisfied, as a middle eastern i was skeptical of the quality and flavor but i was not disappointed whatsoever. i will definitely be coming back with everyone i love.
A bit slow service but fantastic food
Parking can be a bit tricky
Amazing as always 💕
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.
