The Halibut was grilled to perfection and presented in a wonderful blend of tangy tomato and grits. Loved the warmth and care of the wait staff and chef. So many great menu options, and specials, we need to go back again soon! Hand picked beer...selection truly stands out.More

Wonderful meal at this downtown Sioux Falls location. We were greeted by the owner, who brought us to our table. We noticed all evening that he was engaged in what was happening with his staff. The food was very good My husband had the Wagyu...Beef and I had the seared scallops with the most delicious spice blueberry compote. Highly recommend. Get a reservationMore

I believe her name was Kelsey (brown hair, medium length) The food was not so amazing as we hoped going into it. Parker's was really hyped up in reviews and local informational brochures and magazines. It was good just not great and very pricey. Kelsey...(hope I'm remembering her name correctly) helped us really enjoy our visit despite the over priced not all that amazing food.More

TA scored again. While traveling thru we used the App to make dinner reservations.. Parker's is just what I think a Bristro is. Long and narrow, old brick walls, perfect lighting, just the right music and just the right volume. We split the mussels which...were seasoned perfectly. I was concerned that they might be too sweet with the use of coconut curry, but the seasoning was excellent. Great selection of non/alcoholic drinks. We ate light just adding salads (great) but saved room to split some carrot cake. We'd definitely return.More

This place is as good as it gets! A varied and excellent menu with choices that are sure to spark interest. My wife and I stop for appetizers and a specialty cocktail easily 1x per month. That satisfies our hunger and the service helps to...make you feel a bit spoiled. We love stopping for dinner as well and really view this place as one of the best restaurants we have ever been too. Not only is the food out of this world, The atmosphere is warm and personal. I also like to support local, family companies, Parker's definitely is that. Several members of the Weiland family work here, so truly a family place.More

The staff were welcoming and accommodating to us and your service dog. We opted to sit outside and enjoy the evening and some live music. Food was good and an over-all nice evening.

One of my favorite restaurants to discuss business! The menu offers a variety of choices and the Chef’s talents and presentation are beyond excellent. May be on the higher end for the market, yet when the food and atmosphere help sell your presentation, how can...you go wrong? Excellent service to top it off!!More

Best overall dinner in Sioux Falls that I had. I had the scallops and my wife had the fish special. She won with the meal. It was really good. Mine was good also, just the bed of flavors did not mesh as well as it...could. The appetizers were good, but not great also. A crab roll and a tuna dish were good, but not spot on. I sound picky, and I guess I can be, but it was almost a super rally good meal. It just missed in a few area. The wine list was good, and had options and different price tiers. The dessert was really good. So happy with that. The service was excellent also. Like I said, the best overall fine dinning experience I had in the city.More

The food and service was excellent as usual. The quality of the original food items is unusual and unique.

We landed here after a long day on the road on advice of a Lyft driver. We were ready to be pampered a little and we were. Chef accommodate a major menu change to meet a dietary preference. Service was attentive and careful. Food was...done very nicely—we even liked the chizlik, a local speciality, even though we were dubious. Too bad we don’t live in SF. We would go back again and againMore

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Parker's Bistro when we visited Sioux Falls in July. Good menu and good food. Nothing extravagant; decent food and wine for decent price. Just what we wanted. Recommend!

The mark of a good kitchen is the sauces...and Parker’s Bistro did not disappoint. We basically wanted to lick our plates clean! Drinks were excellent as well. Service was spotty...at times attentive, and other times non-existent. We ate outside.
