Our experience was great. I mentioned in our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary and they provided a special surprise to help us celebrate. The menu offered a nice variety of dishes large, small, and appetizers. I had a tough time deciding between the duck and lamb. I wasn't disappointed with the lamb. I may have to come back to try the duck. It is a small dining area, but very busy. Our waiter was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

The food was amazing. The only thing keeping it from being a five star experience was lack of service—not from our server. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation. Another couple came in a few minutes later with also a reservation at the same time. They were sat first at a better table and served first. Then my husbands cocktail was served first with apologies for taking so long to get to him. Mine was brought out several minutes label with a here you go. Didn’t feel like a valued customer at all and I was the one paying. It’s a shame because the food was delicious.

Disappointing, two of three special pancakes burned in the bottom, pork belly substituted for bacon on both of our brunch meals without notice, unacceptable and not eaten by my wife. Check adjusted but that’s not the point, Birthday brunch a disaster.

We usually eat lunch here on the weekend but went for a special dinner. Our meal was excellent and will definitely return. Really enjoyed crab hush puppies.

This restaurant is excellent. Only about 15 tables and a limited menu but the food, drinks and service are exceptional. They have excellent wine and craft beer choices.

Small intimate restaurant with wonderful, thoughtful food and beverage menus. We love this place and make sure to visit every time we're in New Bern. Every bite has been delicious. We started with the duck confit penne which was amazing and then had a shroom panini, also delicious. My husband had the pimento cheese and bacon panini and couldn't have been happier with his meal. 247 Craven is such a charming spot, don't miss it!

Always have a great meal here. When we go to New Bern we always take friends from out of the area and they are always impressed. Great value for excellent food!

The food at 247 Craven is unbelievable, always awesome! NY stripe steak and seared tuna are the best in town. Ending the evening with the amazing carrot cake!

Great food and service. However, they dont have a bartender, the waiters make the drinks which comes to the discrepancy I have with the restaurant. I ordered a whiskey sour (thinking that they would make it from scratch with egg whites, simple syrup and lemons) and they served it with cheap shelf sour mix from a plastic bottle. From a place that offers “fancy cocktails” this is unacceptable.

Another great meal celebration at 247! They always deliver the best fine dining experience in New Bern. Great food and exemplary service. Reservations a must though due to their small and personal welcoming ambience. Hope to go again soon.

Food was absolutely delicious. The "small plates" were plentiful and filling . The relishes added such depth and complexity of flavor. We had a party of 8 women celebrating my mom's birthday, and everyone was very impressed. We ended by sharing a tasting sampler of desserts. Super scrumptious!

Service was also excellent. We will definitely be back!

Great local place with a very creative menu that changes seasonally. Chef does a great job, I had the Filet Mignon which was perfect and my wife had the chicken. The treat was the Butternut Squash soup...fabulous!! Will be returning again soon.
