    This was our first visit after hearing good reviews from friends. We were celebrating our daughter-in-laws birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Everyone was very happy with their dinner choices and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Decent mediterranean food. A little pricey for what it was. Ambiance was moderate, not my favorite place, but it was fine. They also tried to rush us a little so they could seat another table at 7, but whatever.

    Great outdoor dining experience on a really quiet and beautiful street. The service was great and the food was pretty good. I got the falafel and was happy with it, but had much better falafel other places. The hummus, salads, and meats were delicious.

    We went for our first time for a family (of four) birthday dinner. Ara (the owner) was at a table next to us. Anie was our server. The food was wonderful, and the ambience and service were fantastic on a Monday night. It was a perfect night to sit outside. Family recipes -- Ara's mother is the chef -- amazing aromas and taste. Everyone in our family (meat and veggie alike) found something to their liking. We will definitely be back. Thank you Apricot Stone family and team for a great birthday dinner outing and time as a family!

    Book your table now! Authentic Armenian food. A meal that invokes such beautiful flavor memories of my grandmothers, aunts and my mom. Be sure to finish with Armenian coffee and turn your cup upside down on the saucer for luck. In Armenian, you tell the cook “may your hands be blessed’ after an amazing meal. At apricot stone, their hands are blessed.

    Atmosphere was incredible even with our table closer to street parking. Filet Kabob was the most tender we have have had, anywhere…. ever. Each bite starting from the appetizer to dessert was perfection. Despite not having many servers we never had to wait long or remind him for anything. Very attentive and informative. We can’t wait to return.

    Went for a friend’s last dinner in Philly before she moves. I couldn’t figure out if it was a BYO so we didn’t bring and it is so know that’s up front. We ordered hummus, baba, lebni, and muhamara dips which come with pita chips. The duos were fantastic but I would have preferred pita for ease of consumption. The falafel came with pita and was very good. My friend liked the manti but the rest of us are vegetarian so didn’t try it. The fattoush was very fresh. We each ordered a spanikotpita and cheese boreg because they are small. The cheese boreg was out of this world delicious and the spanikopita was ok. We ordered one of each dessert. The baklava was pretty good, the khataif was delicious and very sweet, and the gatnabur was too heavy on the blossom water for all of us. All in all a delightful experience.

    The desert was the real start of the meal. We ordered off the restaurant week menu and were sorely disappointed by the food. I can understand that sometimes things can get messed up due to the amount of customers but that was not even enough to make up for the lack of quality in the food. The filet was dry, the apps were nothing appetizing or to write home about.

    I booked this dinner on a Monday for 6:30pm. We were 15 mins early, and almost immediately we were greeted by an employee who seated us. I appreciated the portable heaters they had placed in the enclosed outdoor space. The table and seating was “just right” for me. I’m 4’10” and struggle to find a restaurant where I have back support. I loved their unique menu! Outside of your typical menu, they also had Family Style and Dinner for 2. We went with the latter and what a great selection we had….so much so that we had to bring the leftovers home with us. The food was great and attentively plated. Our server was by himself and really hustled to take care of all his patrons. The highlight was the dessert: khataif. WOW! So good, unlike any dessert I have ever had. Please put a shout out to the server who worked Presidents Day 2022. He buzzed around the restaurant to take care of us all. I have such a deep respect and appreciate for you guys in the restaurant industry given the pandemic. Keep up the great work! I will definitely return!!!!!
