Persimmons Waterfront Restaurant
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.
The town was crowded for MS150 cycling, so we had to wait awhile after 8pm even with a reservation. However the ambience was wonderful and full of friends and family groups enjoying each other; all the staff were friendly and responsive. The bar tender was extremely efficient, friendly and professional; she had us served and paid before we could blink even though every seat was full. Exceptionally fresh beet salad, carrot risotto and tuna in haute style with flavorful sauces. Sever was hilarious and professional, and food came out very quickly for a packed restaurant. Overall, very impressive.
The occasion was our 20th wedding anniversary and it was magnificent the service was extremely courteous and prompt. It made the evening very worth it, thank you for making our meal extremely pleasant.
beautiful restaurant building on the waterfront in New Bern, really nice and delicious
Back in the late 60's I lived in Paris for three years, and the dinner we had the other night at Persimmon's was on a par with some of the best meals I had in Paris. The filet mignon steak, with Bernaise sauce, was the second best steak I've ever eaten. Just incredibly delicious. Expensive... noisy... but all in all a fantastic meal. Highly recommend this restaurant.
I have been here several times and they have never disappointed. From the brunch menu to the cocktail menu, it’s always fresh and delicious.
Incredible meal for our anniversary & the views were great!!
Good food, good service—my favorite choice for my birthday!
Excellent dinner with all local and fresh ingredients. A terrific surprise with special flavor with each dish.
We really enjoyed the food. Everything was well prepared and hot once it arrived to the table. Our server was extremely nice and welcoming but the table management seemed unorganized. The servers had some miscommunication about who was working what table. It resulted in delays in our service.
Been here many times. Always good. Menu changes with good variety. Service prompt, wait staff professional. Love the beer selection. Best river view around.
Persimmons was absolutely awesome. This restaurant has everything. Great tasting food, picturesque view, fantastic wait staff and the restaurant itself is gorgeous.
Great view and food. Staffs were also friendly. But I wish they had more staffs. We had to wait longer for our food and other services.
We chose persimmons to share New Bern with a family visiting from Hungary. While the food and ambience were very good, the service was less than expected for a meal at these prices.
