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

It is always interesting to see a truly first class food operation doing well in South Dakota. The menu is varied and interesting. The taste is superb and the service second to none!

We almost missed Parker's Bistro due to road construction right in front of this charming restaurant! Even at 9:00pm, the place was packed. Their first Friday theme, Alice in Wonderland, featured special drinks & appetizers. We shared a terrific Caesar salad, then had divine scallops and the fish of the day - halibut with grilled broccolini. Both were well-prepared and... More

Went to Parker's to have dinner but it was right after work, so a lot of 'drinkers' after work. Didn't have a reservation but got seated immediately, but right next to a crowded table obviously well imbibed and YELLING at each other. The waiter could hardly hear our order, and later I was going to try and get a different... More
