Great food, cute place. I just wish that considering they take 8:45 and 9:00 reservations they wouldn’t have rushed us so much!

Nice option for Mediterranean food. We had a trio of mezze, a Greek salad and chicken shawarma. The hummus was very good and the Shawarma was nicely spiced. A bit disappointed with the pita chips for the mezze vs fresh pita. The place has a casual atmosphere and is very reasonably priced. If you don't want to spend $$$ for dinner this is a nice option.

It was a very good experience overall.
One thing that could likely be better is the size of the table for two. You barely can place glass by the plate. Other than that everything else is great.

The dinner for 2 is the best to try if it’s your first time or you’re VERY hungry. From there you’ll know what to order next time! I love the shawarma and the muhamara is to die for.

We stumbled across this restaurant and it was a very fun experience. The menu offered very familiar foods to my family background. We got two dinner tasting boards and it was fun to sample the dishes on the menu. The food came out very fast and it was hard to keep up with the food on the small table but it was overall very good. I would go back and order my favorite menu items in the future!

Food was ok, but it took 20 minutes to even be greeted by a server, and then it took another 45 minutes to get our food after we placed our order. Those egregious wait times really took away from the overall experience.

Service was very good for how crowded it was. We ordered multiple small plates mostly vegan, very tasty. A nice perk of Apricots Stone is it’s a BYOB. Would recommend

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.

Best simple middle eastern food in Philly and a great value too. Consistently good.BYOB. Fillet kabobs are my favorite along with the beet salad , egg salad and baba gnoosh.
Fun to go with a group of friends or even just as a couple.
Only problem is finding a parking spot.It is hit and miss with parking and can be a challenge.Be prepared to walk a bit.
