Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant
Food was great. Service was good however we had 6 people dining and consistently the 6th persons meal was served 5 min. after the other 5. They need to work on their timing. Also, they removed everyone’s plate leaving one person to eat all by themselves.
meal was disappointing. expected more from write up regarding chef. however, service was very good
Great experience. Staff was very professional
Excellent spot in New Bern with a fantastic view ! Can't wait for their new deck to re-open.
The staff was very friendly, the food was very good and the scenery couldn't be beat! The restaurant was packed (which made it very noisy - that was the one drawback, it was hard to have a conversation), but that's a testament to the quality of the place. I would recommend to anyone going to the area to check it out!
Went for my husbands’ birthday dinner and the food was excellent. We had the brussel sprouts for an appetizer and shrimp and grits for dinner. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and comfortable. We will be going back!
We celebrated a special birthday at Persimmons. We had a lovely table by the window overlooking the river. The noise level was quiet enough to easily converse. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Our wait person could not have been more accommodating. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely return to Persimmons the next time we travel to New Bern.
This was a good spot to eat on the water. However, it was a Sunday night with only about 10 patrons in the restaurant and it took over an hour to get our food. Service was slow and we couldn’t realize why, since it was a slow evening. The food was good, Brussels sprouts were incredible and the drinks were tasty. I would go back, but the service has to step it up.
We saw this restaurant featured in Our State and gave it a try. The locally sourced meals were delicious. My crab cakes served on fried green tomatoes were simply fabulous. The views were great and the casual atmosphere was great for our kids.
Nice waterfront view. The food was exceptional. Service was excellent.
On any of our nEw Bern visits, we always try to include Persimmons
Outstanding lunch menu! The four in our party each had something different and we were all very pleased- smoked brisket pastrami sandwich, fish of the day (catfish) with house chips, pimiento cheese and friend green tomato sandwich with mushroom soup of the day and over-the-top delicious chicken salad croissant. Each of us said our respective choice was the best one we had ever had. It was served hot, with a smile. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Beautiful view of the river. They are hard at work getting the deck repaired post Hurricane Florence in time for a warm weather lunch outdoors. Definitely recommend!
The fish tacos and crab cake dinners were wonderful I bring my sisters and niece here every time they come to NC!
Ben our waiter was excellent! He answered our many questions and corrected overcharging on our check. He was very helpful!
Nice sunset reflecting off the Neuse River. Severs not real polished (one acknowledged it was her first day as she handed me a very hot plate). Seems like she would have had a trainer with her.
Food is above average. Ambiance very nice. A little pricey ($100 for 3 people with no appetizers or alcohol). But definitely will go back and well worth the 50 minute drive from our home.
Great, as usual.
We were in town visiting our Marine son. The folks at check in were very friendly. The restaurant was beautiful and clean and we were seated by the window facing the water. My wife and I ordered a special - Sheep’s Head fish - which was delicious, cooked perfectly, with side vegetables perfectly seasoned and prepared. Our son ordered the fried half chicken which was very good. Great view - great restaurant- great staff - great food.
I love that they have many gluten free options and they don’t ask ‘is it an allergy’ but understand celiac disease and the intolerance that is the true suffering of most. Excellent food and well trained staff!
Persimmons is a wonderful restaurant right on the water in New Bern, NC. They have worked very hard to come back from Hurricane Florence and they have done a beautiful job. The food was exceptional, we had the deviled eggs and calamari to start, I had a wonderful swordfish special and my husband had the hamburger which he loved it! The waitstaff was so pleasant and helpful with terrific personalities!
We highly recommend Persimmons.
1. There was no pepper on the table
2. Waitress was slow in attending us.
3. I ordered the crab sandwich-worst ever--almost no crab just all bread filler-a thundering disgrace for the price charged!
4. waitress inquired about the conversation i was having with my friend-most inappropriate

The best fried green tomatoes ever! Everything was excellent!
The biscuits were a bit hard but all in all very tasty meal!
Great meal and great restaurant!
Food was good, service was excellent. My main complaint is that the acoustics of the dining room are very loud.
Food was just not good. Not a good seafood selection on the menu for a waterfront restaurant
The food and service was wonderful! All of our family who visit loves to come here also...
Excellent food, excellent service. I would highly recommend eating here.
Great service. Great food. Great cocktails. Will definitely be going back!
Beautiful building in a great location. Water views from most tables. Plenty of staff, all friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly and was very good.
We had an absolutely delicious meal on saturday!! The menu was full of items that interested us, and all of our choices we great. Julie was a great server. We’ll be back.
Great food, excellent service, you get what you pay for.
We could hear every conversation in the entire restaurant. Especially a table with 6 guys having some sort of meeting. They were chatting rather loudly and should have been in a different room. We went early and when the place filled up it was very noisy. For a month long reno they did not improve the acoustics!
Our waiter was excellent and had just the right attentiveness.
My husbands steak was not cooked correctly and to order scallops and get just 3 on the plate was crappy.
Very nice restaurant and the personal very pleasant. However the food was not that great. Even though they were not very busy our service was slow, they forgot our appetizer, the food was not hot enough as if it sat on a counter for a while. I ordered fried chicken that was clearly overcooked. We got very small amount of sides. Maybe 2 bites. We were never offered more drinks. Great location and ambiance. Maybe need a new chef and more training for wait staff.
Great brunch, great drinks, great friend, great view!
Excellent date night restaurant. Cc
Great dining experience, probably better during daylight to enjoy the views but the food was excellent!
Excellent as always.
This is a beautiful waterfront restaurant with delicious food, and beautiful interior. It is definitely a special occasion kind of eating establishment. I had the ribeye, and my husband had the not your mama’s pot roast. We shared our meats with one another, and ate our own sides. I had the steak frites, and cucumber and tomato salad. He had cauliflower, and carrots and mashed potatoes. Everything was wonderful, and hopefully we will be able to come back to New Bern and eat here again soon!
I’ve eaten at Persimmons before, but this was my husband’s first time. We had a fantastic dinner, and our server, Ben, was extremely attentive. The food is of excellent quality. You will spend a bit more money at this restaurant, however to us it is worth it because Persimmons supports local farmers and businesses by purchasing from them. My husband, who had reservations about eating here initially, is already wanting to go back. Keep up the good work, guys!
Overall very good, but the menu is
somewhat limited. Was hoping to see a few more "fish" options beside trout and catch of the day (swordfish). Surprised they don't offer bread with meal. Still a very nice evening.
