My girlfriend and I recently moved to New Bern, NC and we have been going out a lot to explore the town and finding local eateries and events has been a joy. A week ago (July 2014) we decided to try 247 Craven for brunch because we had heard they had a good one. So we decided to go since... More

Server spilled a meal off the plate onto the table and then proceeded to place the food back on the plate and serve it to us. Really?! Unprofessional to say the least. .

We arrived 5 minutes EARLY for our reservation and were told, without consideration, that our table had been given away and we'd have to wait 30 additional minutes. With two hungry children and hungrier adults we said no thanks.

About our 4th or 5th time here including the special wine dinners. Our meal (I had the tile fish special and my husband had the scallops) were both quite good (about 8 out of 10) but not GREAT (over the top). The food at the wine dinners IS over the top and what I prefer. We brought some first-timers with... More

Enjoyed a great dinner from an extremely creative menu. Excellent dusted oysters as an appetizer and then swordfish over and excellently prepared softshell crab as an entree. The swordfish portion was fairly small but nevertheless extremely tasty. Left room for the wonderful cheesecake. Great restaurant Will definitely add that to my frequent list.

The waitress was lovely and personable, the food was fantastic, and the outside seating was comfortable. We went for lunch the next day, and I was not to pleased. I ordered the Hot Chicken Sandwich, which... More

First timers in New Bern. I have a friend that recommended it that grew up there but lives in Maine. I called him ahead of time about places to eat and that was his first choice. We lucked out as we were able to call early and get reservations. Very upscale in that it's just different enough that you would... More

The food combinations seemed to be done just to be different. The preparation was just so so. We probably won't eat there again. For us Morgans and Persimmons had much better food and service.
