I visit New Bern several times a year and ocasionally do stop by Persimmons. The Restaurant is popular and busy and has good quality but I am disappointed with the service, of late. I was by myself so I sat at the bar, even though the bar was properly staffed, it took them a long time to provide me with... More

The restaurant's view is great and is worth going for. We both ordered the fish tacos which were good, but there was too much lettuce and not enough fish..don't order a salad or you will be overwhelmed with lettuce. The Asian slaw was great. The service was very good.

Love.This.Place. Visited July 19, 2014 to celebrate MIL bday. I usually don't bother with restaurants due to multiple allergies. I was expecting the usual "safe salad" with oil and vinegar & told the staff, surprise me. They shocked me with a work of art that was totally safe for me. Pork tenderloin was best i have ever had and the... More

Make sure to start out with the fried green tomatoe with goat cheese and heirloom tomatoes. Both my entree and my granddaughter's entree was delicious and served with flair. The whole experience was delightful. The restaurant is on the water and at night the lights and the tables outside on the pier is the best. Make a reservation and be... More

Great service, Food was local and very fresh. My husband had the fish and chips, I had the Cobb salad. Nice view on the water, too bad it is the only restaurant on the water in this area

I have eaten here twice in the past 3 months. The first time we arrived 30 minutes after opening. I ordered the vegetable lasagna. It took over an hour for a party of 6 to be served our meal. We asked the waitstaff why our order was taking so long when others around us had been served and arrived much... More

We always take our house guests to Persimmons. The food, service and view is always perfect. Tonight we suggested to our house guest that we go "in to town" for dinner. She jumped right in and said," Good idea! Let's go back to Persimmons! My treat!" Now that is a great house guest... Only down side... weather was not nice... More

The location is beautiful. The food is innovative and excellent. However, the price of $10 for "House" Chardonnay is really excessive! That's NYC prices in New Bern!

My husband, niece, and I had a truly delicious lunch at this waterfront restaurant in New Bern on Saturday. They have an outdoor deck, where our miniature schnauzer was welcome, overlooking the Neuse River. Beautiful! And the food lived up to the view. My fish tacos were delicious, as was my niece's salmon. The service was impeccable and attentive. We... More

Great views, great service, and phenomenal food! Mahi was superb. Crab dip appetizer and tiger shrimp appetizer was a show stopper! Would recommend a reservation.
