“Excellent Prix Fixe dinner on New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Lovely small restaurant. We sat at the bar (just 4 chairs) and It was fun. Wonderful food, excellent service. Pricey but not crazy. Cheaper than same type of restaurant in NY.

“IF I COULD, I WOULD VOTE FOR IT TWICE:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

Persimmon is a gem. We live in Bristol had hadn't been there since they opened (we tried popping in without a reservation without success). Then we saw that they were participating in Restaurant week and we made a reservation. We were a party of three and we were all sooooo pleased with our meals. The presentations were enticing and the quality of the food superb. Yes, it is expensive, but well worth it. They make marvelous martinis, too.

The space is very tiny, but nicely decorated--very inviting. We look forward to a return visit soon.

“GO FOR THE CHEF'S TASTING MENU AND DON'T LOOK BACK!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Chef Champe Speidel knocked it out of the park with our 5-course tasting menu with wine parings on a recent visit. (Technically, it was a 6-course meal because we couldn't visit without sampling a foie gras dish as well.) Beautiful, intense bites. Gorgeous presentation. Kevin's excellent, knowledgeable service. Wonderful wine selections. Ridiculously fair prices. A great staff that makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.
It's been at least 3 years since our last visit, an frankly, I don't know why we waited so long. The che'f tasting menu changes seasonally, so we will back much sooner next time!

“Great food and service”

Fantastic personal service and the food was excellent. A great gem in Bristol and while not cheap, less expensive than comparable places in bigger cities.
