What a great meal -- kale salad with grilled chicken, a couple of proseccos and an afternoon on the deck of Persimmons on a lovely day! Great service, great staff and wonderful food!

The last two times we've been to Persimmons, the food and the menu have not been what it used to be. For one, if there are only a few things available for entrees, I expect them to be appealing, they were not. And all four of us agreed. Once the food came out, it did not taste like what a... More

Had lunch here on a Sunday. Beautiful day and the water views were nice, but we were not impressed with the food or the service. Seemed to take forever to get even acknowledged, then the food took an inordinate amount of time to arrive. I mean, how long does it take to make a sandwich? The sandwiches finally came, but...

My husband and I stopped in beautiful New Bern NC on our way to Beaufort NC. It was 2pm and we were ready for lunch. Really wanted some good coastal seafood. Persimmons has fantastic waterfront views but our lunch left a lot to be desired. I ordered shrimp and grits. Now I make the best I have ever eaten but... More

Even on a busy weekend, we were able to sit at the waters edge. The servers had to trek a great distance to our table, but the service was still wonderful. Local fare and wine selection is amazing!

Let's talk about the BEST PORK I HAVE EVER EATEN...Yes..the BEST! I am not afraid to speak so highly about this magical dish. I visited this restaurant three times while on a business trip!! I ordered the THREE PREPARATIONS OF NOOHEROOKA FARMS PORK which was so delicious, I couldn't even try any other dish. One taste and you will understand!... More

We were so glad to have found this restaurant. The view where the 2 rivers come together is superb and a perfect place to sit outside on nice days. We were delighted at the great food, too, and helpful staff.

We had 10 friends gather for our monthly supper club. The weather cooperated and made our waterfront dining experience a delight. The service and food were excellent. I did feel it was a bit pricey.

We've eaten at Persimmons several times while visiting New Bern. It amazes us that this is the only restaurant in town on the riverfront. With such good views and relaxed atmosphere, the quality of the food and drinks puts it in a class by itself. Only wish the service could be a bit quicker, but who really cares when it's... More
