We had dinner at Persimmons during our stay in New Bern, the staff was great, menu was limited, but food was excellent. Little pricey.

Atmosphere is wonderful. Service was good but food was not as good as our visit last year. Especially for the price. Persimmons has really good potential.

Persimmons has had several chef turnovers since it opened. While highly touted, none have been able to produce a consistent dining experience and I was usually disappointed. The most recent chef seems to be doing better but the menu is limited and doesn't seem to...More
