The food was pretty good - when we eventually recieved it. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks, 45 minutes to receive our appetizer, and 1.25 hours to recieve our meal. We had to get up from the table and ask another server for our ticket at 2 hours.

Mashed potatoes was sticky and like corn starch. The steak was totally raw and grilled on both sides and was supposed to be Medium Rare.. not the best experience.

Being rated as the #1 restaurant in Sioux Falls, we expected much more. The interior definitely could use updating. We had Walleye appetizer which was overcooked (fried) but flavorful and the sauce was great. We had chicken/shrimp combo that was over salted and beef stroganoff which was cut into little square cubes and again over salted. Bar drinks were well prepared and service was good. For this particular meal I would have rated it lower were it not a landmark restaurant. Hopefully it was just an 'off' night.

Great steak and walleye! Service was fast and friendly, reasonably priced food and drinks. As out of towners we wouldn’t have found this if not for Opentable, glad they were on there.

Limited not very interesting menu. Duck was overcooked, hamburger was undercooked, steak was perfect. The pandemic has not been kind to the operations of what was once the best in Sioux Falls.

Disappointed in prime rib. Both my wife’s and mine looked absolutely scrumptious but they were very tough. Not typical Minerva’s quality. Missed the salad bar but that certainly was understandable given current conditions.

We were coming to Minerva’s from Texas to celebrate our first anniversary after having our wedding rehearsal dinner there last year. We understand life is crazy currently, but the food was subpar. I’ve been eating here my whole life, but I’ve never had cold food or poorly cooked food come out of the kitchen. We had marked on our reservation what the occasion was, and there was no acknowledgement. The former owners would have never let that slide.

There's a first time for everything and this was our first time going back to Minerva's for dinner service since the quarantine. We did lunch one other time a month prior. Overall the experience and food was good. I had the salmon special which was prepared perfectly. We also had the lime shrimp and that was also a great dish. The wait staff all wore masks and many patrons did, too... until food or drinks arrived as expected. They social distanced as much as possible and had multiple hand sanitizer stations available. It was what we expected and good to see their business was functioning more "normally". No salad bar at this time, still the same great flavors at the table. Would not hesitate to return.

Seated upon arrival. Our wait staff - Monica - was very personable, took excellent care of us and made us feel welcomed. Food was great... walleye was very good, salmon salad was also. We saved room for the key lime pie... also very, very good. We'd sure visit again on our return to Sioux Falls.

The salad bar was closed, which was a big deal for 4 of us; my wife had to send back her samon because it was undercooked. My steak was outstanding, however I expected the manager to come over and talk to us. Pretty expensive meal not to be cooked throughly

Minerva’s was consistent with the many good reviews we had read. Bronzed Walleye appetizer was great. So too were Chicken Oscar and Duck entrees. Nice bottle of Northstar Merlot and a great meal was enjoyed.

There were four of us for dinner. Each of us felt the food and service was very good. Frankly, we’ve never had a bad dinner at Minerva’s over the years. That type of consistency is hard for any restaurant.
