The service was excellent!!!! We had a reservation and our table was ready for us when we arrived. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and I noted this in my online reservation. Our server wished him happy birthday upon arrival and brought him a slice of cake with a candle at the end of our meal (this was a greatly appreciated surprise). The food was delicious. The kitchen made accommodations for my daughter's meal.

A very pleasant dinner with excellent service, nice selections, notable specials and always wonderful desserts. This was pre-Thanksgiving and the although the restaurant was fully reserved, the noise level was low and we had a special evening.

247 Craven is a very nice farm to table restaurant. The service was good as was the food. The interior of the restaurant is a bit Spartan and therefore a bit noisy but was still a pleasant dining experience. I would not hesitate to recommend it to people visiting New Bern, NC.

I felt it could have been more upscale for the price.
Only four average sized scallops on a $27 entree.
Large plate of sweet potato ravioli had about 10 ravioli s
The taste was good though. The soup was on point and the carrot cake was incredible !

A delightful find. This was an intimate dining experience. A small restaurant with excellent service. The food was superb and the trout was locally caught. The unusual combinations were top notch.
We researched the restaurants along this street and this one had no unsatisfactories. We know why and agree.

247 is my favorite restaurant in New Bern. The food is innovative and fresh, and the service is top notch. It can be a little noisy at times, but it's a wonderful option for a date night, friends night out, or a special occasion.

The waitress seemed to be in training. The food was luke warm when it arrived - if it had been heated it would have been a good dish. The waitress spilled the water from the teapot when she set it down and didnt wipe it up so I requested additional napkins to wipe the spilled water. While there ,the chairs of two patrons at different tables tiipped over - fortunately no one appeared to be injured.

Normally the food is really good. I ordered the Pork belly and my wife had a salad. Waitress came back after a while and said they were out of pork belly. Not a big deal. I ordered another dish of fried ricotta and pancetta. Pancetta was cooked to burnt and very tough. Not the quality of what I usually get there. I will go back ....hopefully a better meal.... I did find out my favorite chef, Ryan, was not there...nver had a bad meal when he was there.

Got together with friends and had a very nice dinner. My wife and I ordered a prime rib for two. It was a little pricey for one regular prime rib, broccolini, and potatoes at $57.00. It's a shame that the owner/chef is never there and the noise level is still very high.

The food and service was outstanding. They had mussels on the menu and they are the best I have ever had. We really enjoyed our dinner and look forward to the ever changing menu and what they have to offer and how the chef and cooks prepare it.

One of the best chef tasting menus we have had in recent memory. The rabbit starter was exceptional, followed by delicious pig's cheeks, and then NC drum with whole shrimp over grits. The last main course was short ribs with a corn risotto, rich and spicy. The wine pairings were great -- a Van Duzer pinot grigio, a Montepulciano, an Albarino, followed by a California Bordeaux type. Then a scrumptious dessert plate -- trifle style cake, cheesecake, and carrot cake with cinnamon ice cream, plus a tawny port. Fantastic, generous, and a great value.

Best Seafood I have ever had!!! My wife and I went there for the first time at the recommendation of a friend. I could not have been more pleased. The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was great.

I have been to 247 before and it was much better. Even though pricey, my former experience made it well worth it. However, this time, the surroundings were dirty, the servers were unpleasant and had no knowledge of the menu. The servers never came to check on us and the food was horrible. There are some places I will go back to if I have one bad experience recognizing that it may have just been an off day, but with the prices and how bad of an experience, I will not be returning.

Excellent food and service. Very creative menu and very well executed. Small space but efficiently laid out. It is not a place to go for a quite conversation or a dimly lit romantic evening, as it is quite bright and loud, but if you want a very good meal, it was top notch and the service was efficient without being obtrusive.

We had an amazing dinner there- we had 5 people in our party and everyone ordered something different and each meal was so incredibly delicious. The meal portions were perfect and no one left hungry! I do feel that the items were a bit pricey but considered the freshness of the food and the farm to table concept and accepted the price without to much difficulty. I ordered a glass of wine and it was only filled 1/3 of the glass- used to a glass of wine being a glass of wine. Thanks for a great meal.

Good food. Not fantastic . Ordered wine- only had one bottle forcing us to change wines. If only one bottle on hand should inform group in advance. Many of my friends rave about this restaurant, I can take it or leave it.

Very limited menu. Featured dish was poorly prepared and included flavors that simply did not work together. Bar was out of several selected wines with a very limited selection available. The restaurant is uncomfortable and is simply a poor choice for dining in comparison to others within the same area of New Bern.

247 Craven was outstanding. The arugula salad, fried green tomatoes, scallops, and flounder special were delicious. Server did an excellent job. The restaurant was a bit loud and got a little warm, but overall, the atmosphere was lively and comfortable. I will definitely be back!

Food was good but we ordered an appetizer and the waitress forgot to bring it. When we arrived there were a couple at the bar and another couple at a table so the restaurant was not busy. Her forgetting the appetizer was unacceptable. We ordered dessert which was delicious.

Second time we have visited and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.
The food portions could be a little larger - ( and I am a slim person)
Grandmom's desserts were truly wonderful.
Thank you for a great evening.

The food here is always very good with many different flavors. They have a small menu but a variety of dishes. They can always meet my gluten free needs and are willing to make changes or substitutions. The restaurant is small so reservations are required most nights.

An Airbnb guest at my house wanted "one special meal" while visiting in New Bern and asked for my recommendation. 247 is the obvious choice. We made reservations and our table was ready. Our server was above average and greatly assisted by the server with a mustache. I've been cooking fried green tomatoes since well before Ashley was born his are equal to mine. I found the chèvre and tapenade both good, but was not happy that the chèvre and tomatoes were inseparable. I then had Cacia e pepe; it was fabulous!

Great food, Great service, pricey but I don't mind paying more for the high quality of the food and the atmosphere. It was well worth it and we will return again and again.
Only downfall was getting there late and them being out of the menu item I really wanted to try! Will get there earlier from now on!
Love the local menu that changes depending on what is fresh and available! Reminds me of some of the local places I have dined at in Europe.
Keep up the great work!
