Great experience as always. Perhaps the only recommendation would be distancing the tables a bit more.

My wife and I were in two different cities for Valentines Day so this was a Valentines Day redo date. We had a beautiful quaint seat at the front of the restaurant by the window. I had the special which was trout with a quinoa side that was amazing. My wife had the beef tenderloin which was done to perfection and had amazing flavors. The service was great as was the ambiance of the restaurant.

We love Parker's. We save going on holidays such as New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day and going to the symphony. This visit was for Valentine's day. The service was excellent. The spicy tuna napoleon was excellent, but the lobster ravioli was awful. The ravioli was not fully cooked and the sauce was AWFUL. Very disappointed for the price of the small plate. This will not deter us from going back as everything cannot be a hit for everyone.

Parker's Bistro brings exquisite taste and refined service to the Downtown Sioux Falls atmosphere continuously, and consistently. Staffed with some of the most caring people in the service industry, Parker's strives to bring something new to the table that keeps guests coming back for more. An ever-perfect date location, Parker's offers private and quiet dining, a well polished menu that is constantly kept up to date, and showcases the wide range of flavors that Parker's Bistro is able to bring to the table. I would highly recommend this fine dining establishment to anyone looking for a memorable dining experience.

Everything is always on point here with food and service. As a solo diner, I would prefer a less busy seat and will request this next visit. Just wanted to say, it was fun to try the Jeckle and Hyde drink. I am a whiskey lover and smoked was unique! I am excited to see new menu coming up hopefully with seasons. Thank you!!

Very expensive. Pasta was warm but very spice. Your mouth was burning after you ate it. No bread was served with salad or pasta. I came home and ate a desert and have coffee. Everything way to expensive.

The food was terrible. I asked for a med rare steak and it came rare and tasting like blood. It was served on rice that tasted bland and undercooked. My boyfriend ordered fish. The filet had the skin on. It was such a thin filet that by the time he got the meat off, there was hardly enough to eat.

Appretizer was over priced for what we received. We ordered the pheasant ravioli and we received 3 pieces. We each got 1.5 pieces for a cost of $14 Way too much. The sauce tasted more like cream of chicken soup

in most instances I would recommend Parker's. However, our food on a recent visit was not good. They did comp our entrée, but we waited a long time for service including drinks, salad, and entrée. They have changed their salad dressing for the house salad, and it's not nearly as good as it used to be. Also there were a lot of nuts-in the salad and in the bread. The server didn't both to mention that. Not good for people with nut allergies. I hope this was just a one-off night for them.

I will always be a Parker’s fan. The menu, in general, is delicious and creative. I had the Buddha bowl, and was not a fan, but that is a first for a Parker’s meal. My husband had the Waygu beef. It was amazing. We got a Burger Battle burger to go, and it was the best of the 3 we’ve tried so far.

Brie was good, scallops excellent, lobster bisque ok (4 pieces of lobster in cup)👎, gumbo ok, salad didn't arrive until entree was eaten, carrot cake was dry.

Dine @ Parker’s 6x a year, never a disappointing experience until New Years Eve.

The best restaurant in Sioux Falls does it again for our family get-together. We had the Wagyu beef, which at other Sioux Falls restaurants has just been ok. It was wonderful as was the Monk Fish dish that was the special for the day. The waitstaff was never far away so our water and drinks were always refreshed, but never so close as to be too near us all the time. Another glorious dining experience.

We went to Parker's for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was spectacular! He said it was the best duck he ever had. Our friends who joined us also said it was some of the best fish they'd ever eaten. I am pregnant and had a great mocktail as well. Thanks to Parker's for the perfect celebration spot!

Depending upon what you order your opinions may vary. Two meals of the 3 we had were very good and one was average. Hard to read menus due to poor lighting. Classic downtown building in Sioux Falls was nice though. Prices outpaced enjoyment but two of the three were very fine meals. Cold plates reduced meal temperature rather quickly. Would I recommend? My immediate response is yes as we intend to dine there again.
