My husband and I had a delightful dinner at the Circa 1810 at Harvey Mansion. I had Shrimp and Grits and my husband had Steak Frites. They were both delicious, and nicely presented. The cocktails, dirty martini and whisky sour were perfect.

If you are looking for a drink every 2 hours then this is the place for you- we came on a Tuesday evening, maybe 17 patrons total in the entire building. The bartender has a horrible attitude - don't ask her to do more than 2 things at one time- apparently she can't multi-task....she needs you to come to the... More

This was our best restaurant experience in New Bern. We had reservations that were relatively early. While the main dining room was not altogether full it was already noisy. Our Rob Roy from the adjoining bar was just right and both of us thoroughly enjoyed our kale salads, flatbread pizza and Scotch Eggs (to die for). However, the conversational "din"... More

What we were really looking forward to turned out to be a big disappointment at Harvey Mansion. The atmosphere is not warm and cozy, but we knew that, it's an old mansion with high ceilings. The walls were decorated with paintings that from a distant seemed quite unusual. We were greeted by our server Gabby, who said she was very... More

Came here after the Marine Corps ball with my fiancé and friends and had an amazing time. Atmosphere is great and the service and drinks were even better! Definitely will be going back soon!

Tried out the Circa 1810 downstairs at the Harvey Mansion. Looks like a English pub. The food is a limited menu but you must try the Scotch Egg. As I am from England this is as authentic as it gets. Staff are fantastic.

My family and I recently ate at Harvey Mansion. As a New Bern resident this restaurant was on my list of places to try. The new owners had just taken over. I must say I was disappointed in the menu. For an upscale restaurant their appetizer selection resembled bar food - pimento hot dogs - $8, sliders, etc. They need... More

Dave - the bartender- was great! This became the favorite spot in New Bern and returned often thanks to his professionalism and phenomenal customer service. Each visit was as good as the last, thanks Dave!

We first ate at the Harvey Mansion about 12 or so years ago while traveling to New Bern and we remembered that we had a good meal. We decided a trip down memory lane was in order and glad we did. We ordered the Florentine Chicken and the Grilled Duck Breast, both excellent and came with a house salad. Our... More
