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

Attentive wait staff Taunya made excellent recommendations. The shrimp special was excellent as was the beef stroganoff. The servers all wore masks, customers not required to do so. We will go back next time we are in Sioux Falls.

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.

This was my first experience at Minerva's that slightly disappointed me. Don't get me wrong, overall everything was very good however I felt like the service was a bit lacking in attentiveness. My ribeye was cooked very well but wasn't served hot, definitely room temperature; I felt like it had sat around waiting until the rest of the meals at our table were done. That being said it was still tender, juicy and delicious. I will certainly return to Minerva's in the future, hoping for the type of experience I'm used to there.

We each ordered steak entrees. One was good, the other came without the requested steak enhancement and had to be taken back to the kitchen. Meal was not that warm.

Took my daughter out for her birthday 🎁 I had the salad bar with a very nice chili soup to go with it . My daughter had a steak - she ordered it medium rare - was a little under done - waitress took care of it . Super nice - funny gal we even had a bonus - cake and ice cream at the end of the dinner ! We definitely will be back 🤩

Had not been to Minerva’s for many years. This was the first time for my wife and daughters and their boyfriends. Several had prime rib, my wife had the small ribeye and I had the Minerva’s New York Strip. All excellent flavor, perfectly cooked, and well seasoned. Very nice salad bar. Everyone left full and enjoyed the experience. We arrived early, had a reservation and were seated before we could complete our order of drinks at the bar and they were busy!!!! Service was very good. We will go back when In Sioux Falls.

We booked our reservation for Valentine’s Day for Saturday. Neither one of us had been here before and had been looking forward to this. First impression at the host stand was that the people working were not happy to be at work. So not greeted very friendly. We were never asked if we wanted a table or a booth but was just told to just follow them. We were sat in a booth and it was very nice. We got a older lady named SAM as our waitress. She didn’t have a name tag on but I did catch her name on the bill. Anyhow I asked her about the margaritas as I only have them once year and she stated that they were good so I took her word for it and ordered one. It was horrible. All I tasted was tequila and there was big chunks of ice in the glass as it was suppose to be “blended”. Anyhow I told her I didn’t want it and I seen her having it remade anyhow at the bar so I went up and had them not make it and they talked me into another drink. It was good. I did enjoy that drink. But after that our waitress avoided our table. Another waitress pre bussed our dishes and such. She never came to ask how our food was after we got it. Matter of fact she would go around the long way to her other tables to avoid ours. I did say something that I noticed it and she laughed it off that she was trying to let us enjoy our food. We ordered the prime rib and we ordered it MR it was closer to R. But it was delicious. My baked potato was so overdone you could throw it and it would bounce back at you. The salad bar was really good. My daughter had the Seafood Mac and she liked it. I think our only complaint would be our server and the god awful margarita. I was a server for many years so I still did tip her 20% bc I know people have bills to pay and I know SD wage is crappy. So to our server that night if you see this I didn’t tip you bc you were GREAT I tipped you GREAT bc I used to be a server and I never tip under 20%. I think either you were having a off night or just doesn’t like her job!

Valentines Day dinner date and as always, Minervas’s restaurant is a winner. Consistently good food and service. My husband had the filet mignon. He is a well done steak eater and Minervas’s always gets it right without charring the steak... tender steak. I enjoyed the Walleye dinner. Not too much to eat.

4 entree's - 1 was served cold (Seafood Mac & Cheese) the other 3 were OK.
4 salad bars added on. All at an additional charge. Should be included with the price of the entree's
1 appetizer - Calamari - more olives than squid - wont order again.
1 glass of wine - house
1 dessert
SERVER - Was friendly during order but lost track of us after meal arrived. We had to asked the busser for a dessert menu.
Bill $143.00 plus tip
Average of 36.25 per person with out tip.
One of a few places downtown that takes reservation so they get a star just for that!!

Going back again on Friday. Lets hope its better.
