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!

Always a pleasure! Enormous portions mean we can savor the meal for several days. I am always torn between wanting to share this “secret” with everyone I know and selfishly wanting to keep it as it is: a treasured escape from restaurants that all start to seem the same. I feel like I’m in Europe, not Philadelphia, and welcome being transported for a few hours, and with insanely good food, to boot. Free corkage makes this our go-to place when we want a fabulous meal for an exceptional price, where we can hear each other, too...and never feel rushed. Thank you!

This was our first time dining out since Covid-19 hit and Apricot Stone exceeded all our expectations. Everything from the food to the service was impeccable. It’s evident that chef Fimy uses only the best ingredients in all her delicious dishes. Everything was amazing from the hummus and baba ganoush to the insanely delicious cheese boreg to the shish kebab and pilaf. The service was flawless with everything flowing effortlessly from the appetizers to the main course. Even our water was refilled as soon as our pitcher was empty. The ambiance added to our pleasant evening. Overall, this was the perfect dining experience. We can’t wait to go back.

While the actual food served to us at Apricot Stone was delicious, it was difficult to focus on that because we were focusing on the lack of service. At least 15 minutes passed by before our waiter even came over to our table. We ordered the mezze for two which was delicious and included a ton of food; you definitely got your bang for your buck. However, we had to ask for 2 mezzes that were included in our order when we originally ordered and by that time we were ready to ask for the check. We ended up asking for it to go but I don’t think they would’ve brought it to us if we didn’t ask when it was included in the spread we ordered. The ambiance was cute and byob is always a plus, but I don’t know if we’ll be back.

The food and service were good, but unfortunately the noise level was way too loud during our dinner. Table s were placed extremely close together and large groups, combined with boomy/harsh acoustics, made this the loudest and most uncomfortable dining environment I've ever experienced.

The food was great. Restaurant is small, it was fine because no one was next to us but if there were guests at the table next to us, it would have appeared that the four of us were dining together.
