Had a great dinner here -tasting menu. Really interesting courses. New restaurant is much trendier and not as intimate but still fabulous food and more fun

Bristol's loss and Providence's gain. Now in the Fox Point area of Providence. Wishing them all the best luck as they deserve it! Wonderfully talented young couple!

The new location in Providence is fantastic! As a frequent visitor to Persimmon's when they were in Bristol, we were really sad to see (but understand why they moved) them move to the "big city". The food was even better and more creative during our...More

We've been several times over the last few years with small parties (2-4), and large (8-10). Always the food has been superb. The combinations of favors, the attention to details, exquisite. The location is tiny and intimate. The chef routinely gets accolades for consistently excellent...More

Persimmon is run by people who care about food. That makes it a destination rather than a convenience. Service excellent. We're foodies so our first trip here put it on the short go-to list of places where we really enjoy the food. When my wife...More
