Another fantastic dining experience, courtesy of the best restaurant in the area... and that's not because there aren't other contenders. Parker's is always just a little bit better, in every measure of success. Tonight's highlight: beef bulgogi wraps. I don't know what sort of steak they used to prepare, but it tasted like Waygu, and the sauce was just right - not to sweet, not too gooey - with just enough bite to brighten each bite. Two at our table had scallops, which were spot-on in every respect. I had duck, and I cannot possibly say enough about how perfectly-seasoned and perfectly prepared it was. (Ate every last bite, and considered licking the plate. Sometimes fine dining can be so limiting... ;) ) Dessert of Southern Chocolate Pudding and a nice port rounded out a wonderful meal, well-prepared, and served with great care.

Was another wonderful evening at Parker’s. Had not been out for a bit but with the assistance of all staff vaccinated and wearing masks felt safe bringing my mother out for our first evening together in over a year. Couldn’t have asked for the better. The food, the service, the care-all top notch. We will be back!

We had reservations for 8:15. That was the earliest I could get a reservation that particular night about five days in advance. So, they were pretty well booked for the night and knew that well in advance of that night. The service was great. The ambiance was adorable, a controlled chaos in tune with the diners. The layout was truly ‘bistro’! The beef appetizer was spectacular! The Caesar salad was terrific. The oysters…not so fresh. I’d pass on those if given the chance again. My tummy agreed with my mouth overnight. I had the scallops; served tasty but lukewarm at best. And the wagyu beef was just plain cold at serving. Then, to be told the vast majority of their desserts are gone due to a heavier diner volume than anticipated?! Uhhh… I knew, and THEY certainly knew, at least five days in advance it was gonna be a heavy night. That excuse was unacceptable. The staff tried, really. But, the kitchen disappointed as did the mismanagement of the stock for the night.

Parker’s was awesome last night! 4 of us had the Wagu…. Perfectly prepared and one of the best steaks I have ever had! My wife has the sea bass, prepared nicely with a crust that was a little spicy but perfect.
Split creme brûlée and Lavender cake for desert. Both amazing!
Servers were busy but gave us great service!!
Can’t wait to return.

Due to current circumstances w/supply, employees, etc., the menu seems to have been significantly limited. The service now the limited menu makes that recommendation much less likely.

Another wonderful evening at Parker’s Bistro. The table was great, service excellent, and the food was sensational. We had the mussels for an appetizer, wow! We had the wagyu beef and the lobster special; both were sensational! Our server accidentally ordered up a plate of the scallops, these were free of charge, and were the best scallops I’ve ever had.

If you get a chance, please come to dine with them, it’s one of the best restaurants in Sioux Falls. As an addition they have outdoor seating which is appreciated during the pandemic.

Parkers is always superb - food is excellent, wine list is terrific, and the service is impeccable. Menu changes frequently, but the highlight of this meal: mussels and shishito peppers. If it's still on the menu when you're there, don't miss it!

We visited in the winter months with a different menu and it was very good. This menu was not good - the tomato soup with jalapeños was marinara sauce, the Mediterranean plate was boring, the sole was cold swimming in cream, the scallops were served with ... corn on the cob?? The desserts were uninspired and again boring.
Our server was great.

Stopped in Sioux Falls for one night and had dinner here/ Got a reservation ahead of time. Small restaurant in a historic building.

We both has wonderful meals. My husband had the Wagyu beef with corn, edamame and peppers, and I had seared scallops with a spicy blueberry compote and corn. The compote was one of the best things I have ever eaten.

Owner was friendly and took time to speak with us.

Highly recmmend
