Delicious food with amazing views! Who could ask for more for a lunch date with friends!
Holly, our server, was fantastic and the food was amazing!!!
Great location, good food, awesome views.
Lovely experience- best food and atmosphere we found in any restaurant on our trip to New Bern. Will be back before we leave!!
My wife always orders the tomato pie and would recommend that. I love the fish tacos, but I wish they would hold the horseradish as it seems too strong for a fish dish, IMO.
The restaurant has the absolute best dining location in this town. Always a delight to have a meal there.
We ate outside on a beautiful day. The fish tacos were great. We had a choice of mahi-mahi or catfish. We had the mahi-mahi. Hostess and server were very nice.
We had a nice evening, but there are very few choices for none fish eaters and the service was a little hit or miss. Very slow.
Service and food was poor. Best thing is the location and drinks.
Excellent food, exceptional service. Very enjoyable experience.
One of the premier restaurants in Eastern North Carolina on a wonderful riverfront setting. They have many gluten free options for those on a gf diet.
We live locally and are regulars. On this particular evening, the restaurant was very busy and it was very loud inside. Portions were smaller than usual and food prep appeared less careful than usual. Just one of those nights?
Sat for 30 minutes watching people who came after us be served. Would have left but other restaurants were busy. Took another 15 minutes to tell us they didn't have the wine we ordered. Ambience was gteat. Food ok.
Food was great, view was incredible, waiter was less than stellar. Maybe he was overwhelmed but he could have asked if all was well when he dropped off things. He also royally messed up our checks.
Great place to enjoy a nice spring lunch overlooking the water.
It was a lovely evening to dine outside. Everything was on point. The cocktails, wine and food were delicious. Our server Piper was great! Thanks for a great date night.
Great place, good food, beautiful setting. Fish tacos were very good.
Meal was very good and view/ambience was outstanding.
Wonderful setting, wonderful food and service, bathrooms not very clean
As the only waterside restaurant in New Bern, the view are spectacular!
We love the pimento cheese hushpuppies! Yum.
First meal out with our friends in over a year and Persimmons didn’t disappoint! Great food; great service and wonderful Bloody Mary!
We love Persimmons and Renee is an amazing person and our favorite waitress! She always is one step ahead and that is priceless when you have small children at a restaurant.
Food was average for the mahi-mahi and good for the lamb with excellent service. However, as an Open Table member with frequent dining, the manager, Ryan, refused to honor my $25.00 Open table dining reward card with the comment, “We don’t participate in that.” He wasn’t friendly, didn’t introduce himself (We requested his name.), and he didn’t offer to call Open Table or even consider working this out.
Wonderful anniversary dinner in a superb setting. From the moment we entered until the moment we left, the experience was phenomenal. Loved the scallop appetizer, which was perfection at its best. Oysters and calamari were wonderful and the sea bass was delicious. Oreo cheesecake and key lime pie were delightful. Thank you to the Persimmons team for a wonderful evening!
Bring back biscuits full time please!
The second time during our weekend trip wasn’t as good as the first time. My food came out after everyone else had finished their meal. They did take it off my bill. The waitress told us the salad dressing was no longer available when it was still available. They brought toasted bread when we asked for bread. The service was not good. We had to keep asking for things that normally would have been brought. I would go back again to give it another try but I was disappointed after Friday night’s meal was amazing. They seem a little short staffed.
Average food. Ingredients not fresh or not kept at the right temp. Quality control in the kitchen can be better.
Staff could use more trainings.
Great location and has a lot of potential.
Appetizers were great, food was OK
Nothing to brag about, place were
Extremely loud, I saw 2 tables left
Without getting service.
Service were very good.
Very busy that night. Servers were working hard. But we didn’t get the best service. Food was warm and just okay. Understandable when busy .
Outstanding food and service. We will be going back
Awesome view and food was great. Would highly recommend
Great location on the water for dinner date. Had the crab crusted mahi. Ate inside but outside on the dock would have been lovely. Save some time to take an after dinner drink to sit on the outer rim of the dock and enjoy the views!
Excellent service excellent food
We requested outdoor seating, close to the water but not the door. When we arrived, it was very windy and the hostess said we could sit inside with a window on the water if we preferred. Our waiter told us if we went out while waiting for our order and decided to eat there instead, that would be fine, too. So -- very accommodating, very good and nicely prepared food. We were happy!
Food was great. service was excellent. cant wait to go back
Amazing food and atmosphere on the water. . Flavors worked in symphony with each other with all dishes ordered. Wine list was great. Want to come back when warmer in New Bern. The outside deck will be amazing in the summer. Highly recommend!
Great menu selection. Wait staff was attentive but not annoying. Food was great tasting with abundant portions. Beautiful atmosphere with views of the water. Plenty of parking in a very cool part of New Bern. Definitely a destination for us. We drove 2 hours!
Our dinner was great and the waiter did a great job too. Although we fully enjoyed our meal, some entrees were just a bit different than described on the menu. Example, salmon was supposed to have asparagus and was not on the plate. Everything was still delicious and we look forward to our next trip to Persimmons!
It was very pleasant great choices, beautiful presentation, very tasty, lovey atmosphere.
