Just enjoyed a delicious lunch at this upscale waterfront restaurant. The menu is eclectic and features all locally sourced products. The restaurant prides itself on being "green". Panoramic views of the Neuse River enhance the atmosphere and the chic, modern decor.

I was visiting New Bern for work and on the last night I stopped at Persimmons. Not only was the food terrific (I had the grilled grouper) - the staff was just as terrific. Next time I am in New Bern I will be revisiting Persimmons!

The grouper was good, but the steak was fantastic. It was so tender and melt in your mouth good. It was sprinkling rain outside so I couldn't comment about the view. Service was fast and courteous.

Persimmons is a very good place for lunch. It is located right on the waterfront in New Bern and has great views. Food and service was good and the pricing is reasonable. My wife and I both had the shrimp and grits, which were excellent.

My husband and I had the most fabulous dinner to celebrate his retirement. The service was outstanding. Our entree course of swordfish and tuna was the freshest we have ever eaten. Our entree was enhanced with a topping of fresh white truffles that had just arrived from Italy. We felt so special on this very special evening. I thank Persimmons... More

We like to visit in the afternoon so we can see the river. On a nice day, sit outside. If you get dessert, be sure to share it. The cake slices are huge!
