"I've been wanting to try this place for a while now and I left with mixed reviews. To start we were hanging in the bar area until the rest of our group came and there was live music, so that was enjoyable. The bar area was cozy and the bar menu looked pretty good. I'd go back to try the Happy Hour. Our group was seated in a nice little corner at a round table and the restaurant was packed. Our server was very nice and attentive. We ordered the calamari and the bruschetta to start. The calamari tasted fresh but no flavor on its own so that was disappointing. For my entrée, I ordered the fillet with whipped potatoes and seasonal veggies. The sauce on the fillet was necessary because the fillet didn't have much flavor on its own. I like a nice sear on my steak and it just wasn't there. Green beans were also bland. The short ribs on the other hand were out of this world. Great flavor. I heard the lamb chops were really good. After dinner coffee was really good and they brought a sample of the caramel budino and that was delicious. If I go back, I will try other dishes."

"We had a 6:30pm reservation on a Saturday night and had to wait for at least 15 min. It was worth the wait since we had requested a table by the fireplace. It was perfect in every way. The beet salad was to die for. Crab cakes were delicious . The big surprise was cotton candy for dessert. Loved it. We had lots of laughs. It was really a magical evening and we will be back."

"Was there for quick bit. Sat in bar area. Took awhile for someone to come to our table. Service was slow. Food was good. Manager assisted with ck so we could leave for show. Waitress was friendly but seemed unable to handle multiple tables. Great atmosphere in bar area."

"Went to Parkers a little over a week ago (have been several times previously). This time we discovered a running fraud with their bar policy: If you order a Manhattan straight up (as opposed to on the rocks) they add $3.00 to the drink.
Most drinks are in the $9-10 range so this is a 30+% add, not mentioned anywhere, to each drink. I've had one or two each time I've been there.
Now if I asked for some elaborate presentation or for extra liquor I could understand that, but all asked for was the traditional presentation, sans ice.
To add insult to injury, I selected a drink special: this was $13.00 to start with. That's right sports fans, when I got the check there was a $16.00 single Manhattan on there.
I brought this up to the waitress who said the " computer automatically adds it, nothing she can do. I brought it up to the manger who gave me the lame " well we put more alcohol in it" (no, the glass was about 2/3 full).
I received a call on the way home, low and behold, they,are a mistake, I should have only been hit for $1 up charge.
As you can guess, this is just plain fraud and poor service. Their food tends to be good, albeit expensive. Their service and management on the other hand are extremely poor.

""I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I have been there a few times now for both lunch and dinner. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the salmon was perfect. My girl friend enjoyed the Mahi Mahi tacos. When each dish was served, it made a lovely presentation. Then we had a surprise dessert for our birthdays which was key lime cheesecake and scrumptious, my favorite. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.""

"I was hosting two friends from out of town that were staying in Downers Grove. My only suggestion for dinner was Parker's. The reservation was correct (Thank you Open Table) and on time. The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and specials, and attentive. Both of my guests eat out often and appreciate good service as well as good food and they were similarly impressed. The dinner salads were cold and crisp and the miniature dressing ramekin (for dressing on the side) was an especially nice touch. The Lobster ravioli in my bisque was prefect al dente with just enough bite to keep it from falling apart. Dinner selections were scallops, braised short ribs, and grilled double porkchop. All were cooked correctly (perfectly to be honest), plated creatively with good sides to accompany the meal. My request to have blue cheese instead of chorizo in my mashed potato side was handled with no fuss (it was fabulous). Dessert and after dinner drinks were equally good as everything else. The restaurant is over an hour from where I live so I don't get to frequent it as much as I would like. The experience on a Tuesday night was not disappointing in the least."

"I've had the pleasure of eating a lot of good steaks over the years. The filet I enjoyed at Parkers was among the best. As a farm-to-table restaurant, I could tell the meat was noticeably fresher that typical chain steakhouses. The big difference, for me, was the fact that they grilled it over charcoals - just like I would do at home. (If I were talented enough and had the time). The subtle smokiness of the charcoal, combined with the fresh, tenderness of the beef really made this cut something special!
Beyond this, I really enjoyed their polenta fries and a very fruity mead to drink. Actually, their entire beer list is outstanding and full of a lot of great, unique gems (like the Lindeman's Lambic). However this particular mead had a wonderful fruitiness that matched well with clover honey used in the brewing process.
The service was attentive and professional, with both of our main servers appearing to really understand each dish and its nuances.
In a sea of chain restaurants offering the same, mass-processed, often frozen food, try Parkers' for a change!
