    Heather was absolutely wonderful! She made us feel comfortable and well taken care of! It didn't take long to put in our orders and receive our food even though it was a busy Saturday night. The New York Strip, White Cheddar Mash, and Brussel Sprouts were all delicious!

    The entire experience was great, and we really enjoyed the market bar selections, the cocktails, and the jazzy musical atmosphere. I would have given 5 stars, but the Bison Ribeye steak that I ordered was just OK. It had a lot of gristle in the meat, and I was chewing a lot on sections of the cut. The flavor was really good though, but I expected a much higher quality cut of meat for the price.

    I told our server that we were there for dinner before a play. She took our order, got our food out quickly, and we go to the show on time. The food was delicious and I always enjoy the atmosphere at Minera's.

    Made reservations thru open table. Open table asked if we were celebrating. I selected birthday celebration. Heard nothing more about it?? I assumed it was for the server's knowledge. Perhaps it is data collection by Open Table.

    The food was ok but the service was pretty awful from beginning to end. The front desk staff were indifferent and not engaged at all. Three people standing there when we left, but not one word thanking us for coming in, have a good evening etc. our server did a decent job but again, indifferent. Fine for a cheap burger joint, but not what we expected at a nicer restaurant. We wouldn’t dream of subjecting ourselves to this again when there are plenty of choices.

    Probably one of the better restaurants in Sioux Falls. Prices were very reasonable. Food was very good but could have been a bit hotter. Waitress was attentive and personable but never offered to re-pour our wine. Still looking for that steakhouse we loved in California, Ruth’s Chris. We’ll keep looking.

    The food was very good but the prices have increased quite a bit since the last time we were there. I had the salad bar and liked it better when I could pour my own soup and the plates were there so that we didn't have to wait for the server to take time to help with that. The bread was a little dry and would hve like to have seen something besides just white bread.

    Food was amazing, but there were too many guests for the wait staff and kitchen to keep up. We didn't see our waiter except to take our order and drop off the check, and the food took about 40 minutes to arrive after we were seated. We were seated in a table for two pushed up against an area where wait staff and guests constantly squeezed past, making it a very uncomfortable and stressful experience. Please rethink this Minervas!!!

    We made an early reservation post-afternoon play so it was relatively quiet. Early on, our server was attentive. The busier it got, things slipped a bit, especially toward the end of the meal as we had difficulty getting our bill and payment processed. It was clear she had way to broad of a zone to cover as she was crisscrossing the entire restaurant to attend to tables (poor planning Mr/Mrs Manager). I will say tables were watered and cleared consistently (A+). Interesting martinis. Definitely neither shaken nor stirred, just a shot of vodka in a pretty glass w/olives. Food was definitely the standout. I'm happy the famous salad bar is back and our meals were very good. Minerva's consistently proves itself as the local go-to restaurant in Sioux Falls. It just needs to adjust a few things to really make it outstanding.

    Kiki was a fantastic server and made the night special. My partner's steak was delicious but that was the only dish that stood out. While it wasn't bad the other dishes lacked depth, I was particularly disappointed in my pheasant risotto. The drinks we tried were good. I cannot hype Kiki up enough though, he was fantastic and we appreciated all the little things he did.

    It had been over a year since the last visit to Minerva’s. Both dinners (large prawns & salmon) were very good. Service was excellent. Although they were busy, we never felt rushed by our server. Minerva’s has been consistently good over the years. Price point (food, drinks, etc.) is reasonable for the area.

    I was looking for a romantic, peaceful, fine dining experience as a surprise for my wife. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The food was excellent as was the service. I did not expect a fine dining establishment to have its bar spread along one full wall of the dining room. Even though we were seated on the far side of the room, the very loud grinding of the barman's blender over and over for most of the night was unexpected and most definitely unwelcome. The "sport's bar" like TV's over the bar were also unexpected and unwelcome. I most definitely will investigate more carefully when choosing a place for a romantic dinner.
