We had 6:30 reservations and didn't leave until 9:30pm....on a Thursday night. We sat for OVER 1 hour and still did not have our salads (and there were several empty tables). We've been to Parker's several times before and it had been a favorite but each time we've gone lately the service gets slower and slower. Tonight was extremely disappointing... More

We are from the UK, travelling across the States coast-to-coast. We stopped off highway 90 to find something to eat in Sioux Falls, keen not to have yet another freeway diner experience... Parkers is a family-run restaurant, beautifully designed and staffed with delightful waiters and waitresses for whom nothing was too much trouble. There was even live (but not too... More

We had the tenderloin and the scallops. Both were perfectly cooked. The scallops in my mind were over the top tried the chislic...don't miss it...excellent. I can't recommend enough. All these years I've been going to an old standard as 'the best restaurant in town'. Wrong Parkers is it. The other is still good...but this is amazing!

Two couples stopped in the Bistro for appetizers and wine. First it took too long for a waiter to come to our table. Later we had to stop the waiter a couple times for service and the bill. The food, however, is outstanding. The appetizers were delicious works of art. We did not order entrees but their menu looked intriguing.... More

First time eating at a place like this and I wouldn't go back on my own. The portions are too small the price tag is huge! Not my kind of style. The quality of food is Great, I guess that's why the Price Tag is so high! If you fancy that kind of place than this your next stop!

We have never enjoyed a restaurant more! Small, quiet environment, great ambience and great service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Rachel, our server, was great! We had the Chimichangi Chislic as appetizer, Tomato Caesar Salad with the creamiest anchovies we have ever had. We had on order of the Grilled Tenderloin and one of... More

Parker's frequently changes up its menu to add new and interesting creations. Unique ingredients. Gourmet dining without the snooty atmosphere. Live music on Sundays. My favorite in Sioux Falls!

I returned due to the positive reviews. My first review was a low rating, the second higher but my group just had desserts; so, we decided to return for a final assessment. That was, hopefully, my last visit to this restaurant. The people are very nice, but the food simply lacks the value implied by the high price. I don't... More

My favorite spot in Sioux Falls. A bit on the pricey side but the food features flavorful combinations and attractive dishes. The Chimichurri Chislic is both fun to say and wonderful to eat. If you haven't tried Parkers yet definitely give it a shot!

Our evening out started on Phillips but we wandered one block to find this unique find. From the minute you step in you are transformed to the way dinner for a couple should be. Unique drinks, different food presentations, courteous and attentive service are how a restaurant should be rated and this one exceeded in all categories. Take the time... More
