The waterfront location and large windows are great. The food was not as remarkable nor the service. The service was slow for our party of 7. We waited more than 30 minutes to be seated. This may be better dining experience at an off peak hour.

I read about Persimmons in the comments on Facebook about the best farm-to-table restaurants. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding. Started with two appetizers ... Duck/Foie Gras Sausage and Wild Boar/Cranberry Sausage, and the Tomato Tower. Fantastic. Tried the stuffed pork chop and cod dishes. The cod was melt-in-your mouth delicious. Only observation on the pork chop was... More

We had the crab dip and Cobb salad - so good! Our waiter was Jeff, who was extremely nice. A beautiful view and not terribly priced. A little dirty on the floors, but that's just because they were busy - not a problem. We will definitely be back!

We stopped late for dinner enroute to Oriental. What a lovely establishment. .very warm and welcoming. The food was good especially the squash lasagna and fish tacos. We enjoyed the chocolate lava dessert..not too sweet and fine to split. Jennifer our waitress was great. Definitely worth making the stop.

In New Bern for the weekend and we wanted a nice dinner with a good view. Persimmon s is in a great location with a view of the river.

My husband and I love eating at Persimmons Restaurant. It is on the river and has outside seating as well. It is a unique atmosphere and wonderful food. I have always loved everything I have eaten there. The most recent time we ate there, we had a fabulous waiter who was very knowledgeable about the menu items and took his... More

Service was friendly but a bit slow but it was a busy night. Food was good but not great. Fish tacos were a full meal with presentation very nice but they needed more flavor. Salads were very good. I would go back on a less busy night and hope the chefs taste the food they putting out to their customers.

If you enjoy good food, appreciate the time taken to prepare something and effort put in- then this is the place in New Bern. The fish entrees are delicious (all I've eaten), the service is attentive, the atmosphere is pleasant. They can do food and they can do it consistently.

Not so good. When they have a special the servings are very small. Inside dining is very noisy. Service is sow.

What a great restaurant! The deciding factor in going to Persimmons was the lamb they had on the menu. Everyone in the group enjoyed their meal. I have food allergies and the staff was very helpful and flexible with my needs. I definitely would suggest this restaurant when visiting New Bern.
