My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The restaurant was beautiful, wait staff proficient, and food delicious. A little pricey for families, but perfect for that special occasion.

Lovely view of marina and rivers, casual contemporary room, friendly (and very informal) staff. The panko & fennel breading provided a sweet taste to the cod, nicely done. The crab cakes were too salty to eat, as were the fries. The kitchen has a heavy hand with the salt. While a customer can add salt to a dish, there's no way to remove it. It's about the view, order accordingly.

New Bern is the birthplace of Pepsi (1898). My pork tenderloin was marinated in Pepsi, served on a bed of unusually seasoned sweet potatoes (N.C. is either #1 or #2 in sweet potatoes in the
US. Persimmons uses local ingredients as much as possible.
Dessert: 2 huge chocolate chip cookies with ice cream in between, a dollop of caramel sauce on top (but sauce had crystallized)
We went for a meal and it turned into a dinner!

I was there for St. Patricks day. I don't remember if I consumed any solid food. I did have a great time and thoroughly enjoyed myself as did my wife. I,d go back in a minute. great location and I like New Bern even more.
