Parker's is the best dining room in the city. Service is outstanding, staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the ambiance of the room is without equal.

Love the history here and pictures depicting another time.
Variety of offerings to cover many palettes.
The salmon was a notch above!
It was a business lunch and very much appreciated a non rush but attentive style of service. Thank You.

The service is very good, I enjoy having breakfast at the Parker's Restaurant every morning. Also, I did show up for breakfast on Monday, March 18 at 8:30 instead of 7:30 and still got in with no problem at all.

Thank you!

We did the Pre-Theatre dining option. Food was well prepared and delicious. Waitstaff very attentive and professional. It's nice to be able to dine in a quiet traditional setting with no "glitz".

We have dined at Parker's in the past and will certainly return again.

We had the most wonderful experience at Parker's. Our food was wonderful. Our waiter seemed to really care that we enjoyed our time that night. We were celebrating our anniversary and my husband's 60th birthday and our waiting gave us great recommendations for food and this amazing wine! He was so friendly and we will recommend this restaurant to any of our friends visiting Boston. Thank you for treating us so well. We loved our waiter. He has been a waiter there for a long time. The hostess was also very helpful and sweet. Thank you Parker's!

Our visit to Parker’s was absolutely wonderful, and we were so pleased. We chose to celebrate our anniversary and Valentine’s Day as a combine dinner date, and our restaurant of choice was Parker’s. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and there were a handful of gluten free menu items that suited our needs perfectly. We loved it very much, and will surely be back!!

Husband and I went for breakfast. The restaurant is no doubt beautiful but I felt like I was in a box. All the windows and shades were closed and seemed so closed off. It was morning and the sun was out so a little sunshine would have been nice. Food was ok but not outstanding. I could have gone to ihop and received the same meal way cheaper. Also our server seemed less than interested in serving us. I think her name was Jackie. We had to have other servers refill our drinks and close out our check bc she kept walking past our table without stoping at our table to check in on us. I highly doubt that I will return to this restaurant. Maybe lunch and dinner are better.

Parker's at the Omni Parker House lives up to its reputation. An elegant setting with refined service it is truly a destination restaurant. The food was good but the service was excellent and relaxed. No one rushing you here. A charming place for a date night in Boston where a man wearing a jacket is more comfortable than not.

Had a real nice dinner at the Parker House before we went to a show. Our waiter, Francesco, was real nice and professional. He has been there 18 years. Dinner was really well prepared. My wife ordered off the show menu . My son and I ordered off of the main menu. My wife had the salmon. I had the haddock with mashed potatoes and asparagus. And of course had the Boston creamy pie. Have not been here in years. Used to stay a ton at the Parker house as my company used to rent rooms there. Food has always been good. Thank you

We ordered the steak from the pre-fix menu. The steaks came out cold. They took them back and re-heated. They still were not hot. Once reheated my steak was tough and over cooked. My wife’s steak was the same. The French onion soup was delicious. Our meals came from desert. I ordered eh Boston cream pie. It was ok. My wife ordered the chocolate cake. The cake was stale and the actual cake was hard. Needless to say the food was horrible. Not anywhere worth the price. I suggest you try another place. The staff was haughty and rude. We will not ever go back there.

I gave service a 2 because it took 3 hours for 3 courses and the final course was for take away. I do not know if it was wait staff or kitchen, but service was very slow. Service was also friendly, professional and accommodating. That said, food was tasty but not exceptional. We had crab cake , root salad (excellent, btw), steak, Boston cream pie, chocolate cake.
