My husband and I ate here the first week in September. It was a welcome surprise. Not gourmet, but very nicely done. I had salmon with good complex flavors, but a little overcooked. My husband had scallops with four different sauces . . . scallops perfectly cooked, but sauces unremarkable. Very tasty dessert of a "rice pudding" with a crime... More

Located in downtown Sioux Falls, Parker's was a long way from our hotel on the interstate. Street parking near the restaurant was available. The service was very professional. We each had a "seasonal salad" which had salted beef on it. Since my wife does not eat beef, that was not welcome. However , I enjoyed the salad and the pork... More

I wasn't that hungry, so I ordered a cup of soup, a salad, and an appetizer. However, the appetizer (the pork belly trio) was so incredibly good, that we ended up getting dessert (a nice light pavlova) too. The soup was great; nice and spicy. The salad was good, and the appetizer that I ordered for the meat course was... More

I was greatly looking forward to visiting Parkers, since it is so highly rated in TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. Great little location downtown, with brick walls, and very retro interior.....Love it....I ordered Steak Filet and salad.....Excellent.....Great service and atmosphere.....However, portions are a wee bit small....other than that....wonderful dinner with great servers.....you must go here.....wonderful place.....

Great architectural space, great wine list, great service, but entrees were overcooked. Was excited to try Parkers. Started with the Pea & Fava Bean tortine on sourdough rye toast, oh my! This small plate was actually the star of the food we ate. Halibut special and my tenderloin were unfortunately over cooked, but the accompaniments were very good. I would... More

I picked this place based on Tripadvisor reviews and Parker's Bistro website for a special evening with my husband during a brief visit to Sioux Falls. First of all, yes, the food you'll be served looks as good as the pictures on their website. And it tastes at least as good as it looks. We had the bison carpaccio, 2... More

After being pretty disappointed after our lunch in Austin, MN, we decided to pull out all the stops and try a more Trip Advisor reviewed dinner option! Are we glad we did! Parker's Bistro is a lovely upscale restaurant downtown with easy access to parking right in front of the restaurant. We were greeted by a very cheerful woman who... More

We had two nights in Sioux Falls and glad we chose this for a dinner. Very neat building with many different dining areas. Full bar with interesting cocktail menu. We shared an appetizer and a main course, plenty, and both excellent. Halibut was the special that night. Good deserts and the wine list is reasonable. Our service was perfect as... More

I was at Parker's with a small group, and everyone enjoyed his/her meal. The appetizers are imaginative and suitable for sharing. My fish was well prepared, and someone in our party was pleased with his choice of duck. The desserts though good are quite heavy. Service is friendly and very personal.

This was a great find in downtown Sioux Falls! We came here with a group and had a fantastic waiter. He helped us through the whole menu and I ended up getting a hanger steak, which was alright but I everyone else loved their ribeyes and sides. Their dessert was also extremely delicious. I would recommend this for a special... More
