My husband and I chose to stay local for an intimate wedding dinner, just the two of us. As he is from Bristol, Rhode Island, I thought it would be special to stay in Town, so I chose Persimmon based upon its excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Well, it did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived, we were treated... More

We made reservations and it was so busy for this small place we waited over 30 min for our table but we're accommodated quite nicely. We did the chef taster each and the food didn't stop I finally had to leave some of it on my plate I was going to explode from all the tantalizing flavor, beautiful plates, lots... More

Persimmon is a cozy little restaurant in charming Bristol, Rhode Island and possibly providing the best dining experience in the state. It is useless for me to give you a run down of the individual offerings; the chef's tasting menu, all the appetizers and entrées we sampled were all unique and perfectly executed. The ingredients could not have been fresher... More

Persimmon is a great, low-key option to some of the fancier and perhaps more well-known fine dining restaurants in Rhode Island. Located between Bristol's main street and the harbor, the relatively small dining room is cozy and the welcome is warm. The cocktail and wine lists contain an interesting selection, including a "bar tender's choice" cocktail tailored to the diner's... More

My wife and I enjoy well prepared meals and personable service, Persimmon delivered. It was almost a shame to carry wine into the restaurant as their wine list is comprehensive, but I a few old wines that I wanted to try and they did us great wine service by carefully decanting the nectar. They fired on all cylinders, I will... More

My fiance and I have dined here many times. Sometimes we pick our own courses but other times we do the tasting menu and completely submit to the Chef, those are usually the most magical nights. I have never been disappointed by one dish he has served us. We are literally in heaven whenever we get a chance to go... More

The menu & beverage selection, the good preparation & presentation, and the accompanying service is amazing and memorable. They've added a vegetarian entree to their menu too. It is an experience that should not be missed. Quite possibly the best restaurant in Rhode Island where there are many wonderful choices. Reservations are highly recommended.

This foodie thoroughly enjoyed her experience at Persimmons in lovely Bristol RI. I indulged upon the pan roasted beef strip loin basted in whole butter, garlic and fresh thyme with cippolini onions, king trumpet mushrooms and potato purée; sauce Bordelaise. Can you say "tender"? It sure was…melt in your mouth to be sure! The meat was savory flavorful yumminess! The... More

My wife and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary at this delightful restaurant that we have visited two times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. As we were preparing to leave our waitress said “Happy anniversary,” and we found that the couple next to us were celebrating their 42nd anniversary. We also heard “Happy anniversary” from... More
