Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant
Both dishes were excellent in preparation and presentation. We both ordered wine by the glass and found them below average. I assumed a restaurant in this price range would have above average table wines
We had heard about this restaurant on a NC food short. We drove to New Bern just for the experience! Food was excellent and view was beautiful. I suggest more attention to the dessert menu as those were the only options that did not live up to the experience.
Excellent service, delicious food, great view of the Neuse River! Highly recommend whenever you are visiting beautiful New Bern. So glad they are re-opened after the flooding from Hurricane Florence.
My wife and I ate at Persimmons on Feb. 9. Overall we were pleased with the dining experience. Food was good - great. Shrimp and crab creole starter was the star of the show. Four plump shrimp with ample crab meat kind of floating in creole sauce accompanied by fresh grilled sliced baguette. Excellent. My wife had the pot roast and she loved it. I tasted it and it was tender and packed with flavor (definitely recommend, especially on a chilly Feb. evening). I ordered the fried chicken. Very generous serving but seasoned breading overpowered the bird (would not order again). Service was solid and wine, beer and scotch pours were generous and reasonably priced. Good place and would definitely visit again if visiting New Bern.
Persimmons is one of the top restaurants in the new Bern area. Their are varied menu relies on locally sourced ingredients.
Persimmons has an excellent bar friendly staff and great service. You will not be disappointed
I took my sister and niece to lunch and they loved it! They loved the view, the service and the food!
Fabulous waterfront dining! Love this place!
Food was excellent-although initially was delivered wrong meal.
We had a great relaxing birthday celebration. The food was great and our server was informative and courteous. We will definitely go back.
Love everything about Persimmons. One of our local favorites!
Stopped in for Saturday lunch. Savory crab cakes and sangria. Kind and courteous service. Beautiful location in a beautiful city.
Service and food both excellent. Waitress knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating of special requests, and appropriately attentive. Dining was comfortable and not rushed. Food was served at timely intervals, without any sense of waiting or delay. Catfish, Ashley Farms Chicken Salad, and Pumento Cheese all very well prepared and tasty. Made a birthday very enjoyable.
The oyster appetizer is out of this world - love the freshly grated horseradish that is served with it. Our entrees were delicious as well. Great service, a waterfront view, and yummy food: What more could you ask?! We'll be back.
Food and presentation was excellent. Our waitress Brittney was fabulous.
The coffee was magnificent and my father said you have "spoiled him; I can never eat another shrimp and grits again." Excellent service.
Food, service and price was good, acoustics are poor lending to the loud noise from surrounding areas
New Years Eve
We invited friends to come with us. His chicken was extremely underdone (raw). Price we spent for the meal was not a good value.
My family and I enjoyed every bite! Wide wine selection at a reasonable price. I loved the treat of the scented hand-scrub in the bathroom.
Their entries are nice (their cornmeal fried fish is to die for), but it's the appetizer/small plates menu that does it for me. We made a second visit just to try out other things!
Awesome. One of our favorites. My wife and I spent a weekend away in New Bern just to eat there. Get the biscuits!
This is a great place to eat. The food, service, and atmosphere are the best in New Bern.
Our waiter Jason was very informative and we had a great meal.
Excellent service and good selection on menu. Generous portions
Food was very good - Danielle was our server and was so pleasant and attentive! Very positive experience - we'll be back.
Persimmons was recommended to us by a friend. We were not disappointed. Wonderful food and attentive service. Paired the Chenin Blanc and Tempranillo with my meal. Delicious!
Always great food. Order cake quickly. They are still recovering, so noise was evident, but still would return.
You never really know when you’re just in town for an evening — this spot was perfect! After a 5 hour drive to help a friend with several tasks, this restaurant provided a casual yet upscale ambience— a welcoming staff and a creative menu. Exactly the kind of place you’d want to find in order to relax and feel pampered after a long drive and busy day.
Go for appetizers and dessert. The Brussels sprouts were amazing but my husband and I both were very disappointed with our entrees. A big waste of money. Dessert and coffee were both very good. Very clean with nice atmosphere but temperature inside was uncomfortably cold.
We had our wedding Anniversary there and the food, service was exceptional! Green fried tomatoes are the best!
Excellent menu with locally sourced ingredients. Warm friendly service.
Simply phenomenal! Highly recommend. W we were there for brunch, But will be back again soon!
Five years ago tonight we held our wedding reception at Persimmons and it was perfect! While the restaurant is not as high end as it was then, food was good, service was great! Restaurant is more casual/lively/family friendly than before.
Excellent coffee, using Chemex and pour over. Efficient service and a great view.
The new menu is great!
Excellent food for Sunday brunch.
Very nice view of the river. Looking forward for nice weather and the reopening of the deck.
excellent. slow coffee presentation cooled it off too much. $5/cup too steep. sun. brunch a great value.
Persimmons was damaged by Hurricane Florence and has been closed since. We were unable to dine there. Hopefully they will be able to re open soon and did not sustain too much damage .
We were in New Bern for one night and choose Persimmons to have a drink and some small plates to start our night. We were not dissapointed, beautiful view of the water l, our waitress was so friendly and awesome. I highly recommend adding this to your list of places to go while in the New Bern area.
My wife and I ride in the MS150 fund raiser in New Bern in early September, and that also happens to be near our anniversary. We have celebrated the occasion at Persimmons the last 3 years and it has been an excellent choice for us. The evening waterfront view this year was spectacular.
