Awesome as usualThanks for another great meal. Not a regular but you guys don't miss.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food Service & PresentationA new favorite, discovered purely by chance... clam chowder was light but meaty, with actual clams and shells. Bread was configured with tje skill of a sishi chef, and heirloom beet salad with walnuts and quinoa... so yum. Aesthetics pleasing to the eye and tastethrilled the palate. Uber impressed.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantNote, we haven't used Open Table in a while. But it worked out great. I went to Open Table the night before, and made my reservation. We got there 10 minutes before, and was seated right away. the food was great, along with the service. The only problem was the noise level in the room.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visitThis was our first visit to Parkers but will definitely not be our last.

Atmosphere is a good mix of formal yet comfortable. The dining room was about half full despite our early dining time of 5:30. Service was efficient, friendly and respectful. Server knowledgable about wine list and I enjoyed his suggestions. We started with shrimp cocktail; 9 yr old daughter passed on the kid menu (regular selections) and went with lobster Mac & cheese (loved); 11 yr old son loved the swordfish; my husband and I had the pork chop and lampchops, respectfully. Everyone cleaned their plates!

We had the semi-private room in the back with the round table and had 3 children with us under the age of 6 so this space is perfect for a more casual setting and the children really enjoyed their ability to move around while the grown ups ate and had some good conversation. The food was outstanding and we even saved room for dessert! A very enjoyable evening was had by all.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were visitingMy wife and I were visiting from out of town, saw Parker's on Open Table and gave it a try.

You could actually taste New England in the clam chowder, lobster bisque and the halibut. The clam chowder was not over the top with cream but instead had a nice slightly creamy broth. The gentleman who waited on us was super nice, knowledgeable of the menu and had a perpetual smile that was contageous. Parkers has now become our choice for a nice dinner and we will be suggesting Parkers to all our friend.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlaskan halibut and Duck wereAlaskan halibut and Duck were excellent.

We keep coming back year after year and will continue to do so.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I ate in theMy husband and I ate in the lounge area in a booth which gave us a sense of romance while being in the energy of the lounge area. Live piano made the environment high energy but not too noisy. The restaurant is more expansive and could be both family friendly and romantic depending on seating.
Our food was delicious and definitely a stop we will make again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dining experience couldOur dining experience could not have been better! John, our waiter, was fabulous! Answered all our questions, had great suggestions, and never rushed us. The food was amazing! The cedar planked salmon was cooked to perfection.

We enjoyed a wonderful night out and will definately be back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI like everything about theI like everything about the restaurant but feel the individual prices are very high for a lunch.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMComing back soonI've been disappointed with most restaurants in Oakbrook; a bunch of generic pretentious chains. However, can I give Parker's 6 stars? Amazing! Service was impeccable; all the waiters were very professional and attentive. Food & drinks arrived so timely. Entrees were prepared wonderfully; absolutely delicious - from fabulous burgers to comfort foods turned spectacular (like short ribs) to delectable seafood (multiple types of fish uniquely prepared). The shrimp and lobster fritters were something special! I was already thinking of when I'll be coming back even before dinner was over. The wine list was great; offering good Italian wines and even black muscat (way to to go Parkers!). Bar area is very loungy with live music, love the vibe3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh fish, perfectly cooked.Fresh fish, perfectly cooked.

Would definitely go back for a special occasion.2/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food!We had a wonderful dinner. The restaurant itself is large, but not crowded or noisy, it's very pleasant. We started with a couple of appetizers. The crab cakes are delicious, full of large pieces of crab. And we had the shrimp....delicious! We followed with some salads, I especially like the salad with beets. My husband ordered the scallops, they were outstanding. They were perfectly cooked, and nice color and caramelization on them, and the flavor was wonderful. They were on a bed of butternut squash risotto that was excellent in flavor and preparation. I had the chicken. It was on a bed of mashed potatoes with some root vegetables. I don't know what brine and sauce they use, but it's unbelievably outstanding! A delicious meal!2/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
