Having lived in the area for many years, this was my first visit to Parker's. The restaurant offerings and the service did not disappoint.

I was with a party of 3 celebrating a birthday. Each of us ordered a different meal, along with some appetizers, and wine. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server was Richard and he provided excellent service along with the assistant servers.

It is a little pricey, but the excellent food and amenities are well worth the cost. I highly recommend celebrating any special occasion at Parker's.

Food quality and ambiance is amazing. Will recommend the cedar white fish. I went there for my wife’s birthday dinner and mentioned the occasion on open table. The restaurant was notified and they surprised her with a very beautiful birthday cake towards the end.

We started with a bottle of wine. Our server presented the bottle, opened it and poured me to taste it. That went well, although she spilled a couple of drops onto the menu and table when pouring into our glasses (both my wife’s and mine). For appetizer we ordered the crispy calamari to share. Our server wanted to take our entree order at the same time. I started to say something about not wanting to be rushed but she said she just wanted to get the menus off the table to provide us more space, and she would not put the order in until we finished our appetizer. The calamari was good but much more crispy than we expected; we both agreed we preferred our calamari prepared in a more traditional way.
My wife ordered the beet salad which was excellent, and I ordered the Shrimp/crab bisque. The presentation of the bisque was nice; they brought a bowl with a lump of something in the center and a pitcher of liquid which they then poured into the bowl - very nice. Only drawback was the bowl size was quite large and deep and it was a little difficult to properly eat the soup, although I managed. The only drawback was the salad and soup arrived within a few minutes of us finishing the calamari.

For our main course, my wife had the special (Halibut prepared on a cedar plank), and I had the crab cakes. Both were excellent. The crab cakes were the best I have ever had (and I have tried the crab cakes at many restaurants). The only drawback was we had just finished our soup and salad when the main course arrived. Once we finished the main course our server brought us a nice key lime pie dessert to share. It was on a plate that said “Happy Anniversary”. Nice touch.

The two problems we encountered were:
1. We felt rushed; were not offered coffee or after dinner aperitif.
2. Our server, while efficient, was not pleasant. She never smiled, and only summarily acknowledged our anniversary when she set the dessert down on the table - very disappointing.

We have been going to Parker’s for Easter Brunch for at least the past 5 years and many other occasions. Sadly this year we were disappointed. The food was located in the bar and actually on the bar itself making it difficult for the wait staff to get through with drinks. The burner for the made to order omelettes was dangerously close to where ladies and girls in their pretty dresses had to pass by to get desserts (which were strangely next to the seafood offerings)
The selection of the food although tasty had far fewer options (no seafood stew!) and the display was not very appealing
While I will continue to come here for other meals as it IS one of my favourite restaurants, I will hesitate next year for Easter Brunch

Always great when we dine here. Service was attentive but not overwhelming which is exactly what we want. I had the redfish special. Was cooked to perfection and the spinach, sauce and potatoes were a perfect compliment. There may be better restaurants but If you dine here you won’t be sorry

I have been meaning to visit Parker’s for years. This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious. Our server was extremely attentive and helpful choosing our wine.

Although it is a little pricey for every day dining, It is certainly worth it. We will be back

Lovely meal that was served promptly so it was as hot as fish should be! The kitchen graciously accommodated a lactose intolerance and provided a delicious substitution. Dessert was beautiful to look at, tasty, and decked out with a clever tall candle for the birthday celebration. We will return soon!

Wonderful established restaurant. Outstanding food, service, food styling . A beef fillet came undercooked and after it was whisked back to the kitchen, the manager came over and apologized. He offered a soup or salad while we waited. We asked for a dessert. They ended up comping 2 desserts! Service is impeccable! Separate room for large groups.

I have been here several times, this one was the best of my experiences. The food was very good and the wine was superb. They use a Coravin to tap into some very good wines. I don’t give 5 star ratings very often. They deserved a 5. Thank you to all the friendly staff. A job well done!

Regardless if you dine in Parkers bar, main dining rooms or private areas in a crowd, the menu, food and service are always excellent!
Wonderful appetizers, beet salad, fresh fish as well as delicious desserts.
Staff is accommodating in helping arrange private parties. I have been impressed that the food for large groups is wonderful-beautifully served, hot and not over-cooked.
Live music in the bar is a nice touch.

We were in town to celebrate a birthday and just happen to be staying near the restaurant. As I am in the industry I am a little particular about where we eat. The bar had a great little jazz trio playing, the food was all done exactly as expected and did not disappoint, wine list was great with quite a few of my favorites.
Only "issue" we had was with the service, as it was a little slow and sometimes difficult to get another drink. As well as when using a mini shaker to pour table side, you should always make sure the shake is longer, as to create the right chill and slightly icy effect, the drinks were barely shaken and hardly cold. The glasses were actually warm like they had come out of the dish machine, were polished, then immediately used. ALWAYS CHILL MARTINI GLASSES....

Had reservation but several parties that walked in after us were seated before us. Way too noisy and tables too close to each other. They did give us a complimentary appetizer to apologize for the wait. Our server was outstanding.
We love the private room for special occasions or a larger group.

Although the reservation [via Open Table] contained a request for gluten-free dining - and that was the end result - the waiter was obviously irritated at the prospect, complaining to his supervisor. Unfortunate, because the food was excellent.
