Updated review.

Gave it another try. This time for dessert and coffee. Both were very good and service was nice enough. So, a two star upgrade for Parker's.

We continue to return to Parker's when we get to town. The daily specials are always amazing but I can't stop eating the lasagna - the absolute best anywhere. Great atmosphere and ambiance.

I spend summers in Sioux Falls and, coming from California, this restaurant holds it own and has been a welcome addition to Sioux Falls. Love sitting at the bar where you can watch their innovative food being prepared - great for "date night" or having a wonderful dinner with friends.

I visit Sioux Falls several times a year, and Parker's is the restaurant I look forward to every time. The building is beautiful and the atmosphere is sophisticated without being pretentious. The servers are professional, knowlegable and able to read and pace a table, something few SF restaurants can claim. (At one top-rated Sioux Falls restaurant we realized that the... More

Love the environment especially in downtown. However the cost is not worth the visit. Unique menu choices and wonderful wine selections. Very friendly service. The seating is close and can be really loud if by the kitchen. If trendy is worth the cost then definitely go here but if looking for a meal that is filling and larger portion sizes... More

Decor: trendy, but without chrome or any neo- or retro-industrial vibe. Service: OK, but with the uneasy edge of knowing the waitress was trying too hard to be warm and friendly, but missing the mark. Food: My gumbo was good. My London Broil was tough. Cost: $43 with tip (no alcohol). Value: I feel like I wish I'd tried someplace... More

I was happy to have found this restaurant (thanks to Trip Advisor!) while visiting Sioux Falls on business. I went with 2 co-workers (they are hipsters, I am more sophisticated in my tastes) and it we are really liked it. The so-so service was disappointment as well as the fact that there was venison on the menu and when my... More

I have heard about this place so we went to try it out. As I was told, it was very expensive. Also the portion sizes are very small. Don't bother with the appetizers for there is hardly any food that comes with them. If your one that likes how the food is plated, this is your place, however if you... More

This is my first choice of where to have dinner. The food is very well prepared and presented. The steak tenderloin is the best.

May be the best eating in a wide area. Has a wide menu that is the envy of every other restaurant. Priced well for the value.
