I had a nice dinner with a friend while visiting family for Christmas. I was surprised how good everything tasted. The atmosphere is nice, maybe a bit on the fancy side. Service was pleasant and attentive.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Persimmons tonight and everything was perfect. The staff was great and the food was excellent. We both had the filets with bearnaise sauce with vegetables and roasted cauliflower. Desert was just as good. We were seated by the window overlooking their back deck by the river. It was a perfect evening!
