We went on a Wednesday evening. We had the place all to ourselves. Everyone was very inviting and attentive. We already looked at the menu online and decided on their 3 course Prix Fix menu. my husband had the mussels, quail, and apple pear cobbler. I had the butternut squash soup, sweet potato ravioli, and strawberry banana panna cotta. The entire meal was fantastic! My sweet potato ravioli was the best part! One of the tastiest things I have ever eaten! I would recommend this to anyo...view morene!view less

We just returned from a weekend trip to Cleveland along with another couple and we dined here Saturday night. I cannot express strongly enough how impressed we all were with the food and service here. We make it a point to visit quality restaurants whenever we dine out; and not just for the hype, but for the FOOD. That's what it is all about after all. Well, the food AND the service at Parker's was exemplary!
If you live in Cleveland or are visiting there, this charming little...view more spot is not to be missed. We dressed up a bit but people were dining in jeans and khaki's and were not out of place at all. I will definitely visit next time I am in town. You should do the same.view less
Actually, the food here is amazing. The dishes sound straightforward enough, but the beauty is in the execution. Who knew celery, of all things, could be so full of flavor? I ordered short ribs, and every part of it was delicious. The prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food. Of all the restaurants in Cleveland I have been to so far, Parker's is my favorite.
Parker Bosleys food is the best available. His sourceing for ingredients are the finest local growers and purveyors. His technique is classic french and he has REAL vegetables on the plate. I doesnt get much better than this. Too good to miss and the redone dining room is lovely.
Parker's is to the midwest what Chez Panisse is to Berkeley, the pairing of fresh seasonal ingredients of local origins with the cuisines of country France.
The results sometimes work and sometimes not and since the menu changes, daily, consistency of taste is not what this restaurant is about. What it is about is using what you have to the fullest and Parker manages to pull that off fairly successfully.
If there were ""negatives"" I would have to say that 1) the atmosphere in th...view moree back room is less than what I had hoped for after seeing the entrance and 2) because the menu changes, daily, you don't always know, in advance, what will be the menu du jour. As I said, somethings work and some don't so you need a few trips to form an opinion about this place.
Mine is, overall, very positive.view less
