WOW, A hidden gem

We lunched at 247 Craven. Wonderful soups and sandwich. Service was outstanding and we were sitting outside. We hear dinner is even better. Maybe next week.

The food was mediocre. The service that we had was lacking. I had to get up to find the waiter two times. One time, I had to ask him for hot water, and the second time, I had to ask him for bread. Given the price, I would not recommend this restaurant.

We arrived at 7:30 promptly for our reservation. We were seated at a table near the door the size of a chess board. I asked to be moved to a larger table. We were seated at another but only marginally larger that the first. The waitress suggested that we move back because a 6 top was scheduled to be seated... More

The food here is outstanding. The wine selection is very good. Be sure and check the chalk board for the evening specials they are usually off the chart! If you like fine dining do not miss this place while you are in New Bern

Stopped in for dinner and had their house made rigatoni and smoked border spring lamb ragu. Perfect portion, the rigatoni was cooked perfectly, the lamb ragu delicious. Finished the meal with a piece of exquisite strawberry cake made by the owner's Mother. The wait staff were polite and observant.

During our recent visit I was a little disappointed with the size of the entries v/s the price. We have been to this restaurant several times and it appears they are cutting back on the serving sizes. Our choices had a few vegetable and nothing else. In other restaurants the serving size would have been small plates. I also was... More

This was the first time we dined at 247 Craven in its latest incarnation and we were very pleased with our meal. I had a salad followed by the pasta with mushrooms and my partner had the onion soup and beef special. Food prepared well, service attentive and atmosphere nice and quiet despite it being crowded. Desserts. especially carrot cake... More

My first choice for special occasion dining, great for couples' night out, or dinner with friends. Great nouveau American cuisine with a Southern spin.

I love the seasonal menu and the farm to table concept. 247 Craven has mastered it. The menu options were creative and our choices were as pleasing to eye as they were to the palate. The blend of fresh seasonal food and spices was a sheer delight. The outstanding food was complimented by 5 star service.
