Excellent food and atmosphere. We live more than 4 hours from Sioux Falls and have visited Minervas twice. We look forward to future visits and drive out of our way to visit. This last time, waitress seemed to be a bit overwhelmed and wasn't quite as attentive as expected. Also, had a tray of dirty silverware dropped in our booth from stairway above. Was just an accident and they offered to clean coat (I declined), but still unnerving.

Service was excellent. Both husbands ordered the special, the prime rib, which was excellent. For the side , I had the baked potato, which was excellent, my friend got mashed potatoes, which were luke warm to cool. My wife's soup was luke warm. Neither wanted to raise a fuss and return them. It was shortly after 5, so maybe the kitchen was not quite ready. My wife also had the salmon, which she thought was excellent.. next week we are retuning with two couples from out of town, and my wife is some what worried about it being the "sure thing" she has thought of Minervas in the past.

The steak special price was never mentioned so when I received the bill I about fell off the chair. That was not a special to us. The other steak looked more like a steak sandwich than a steak you would be serving. Disappointed to say the least. The rice with the steak special was dry and we were there early. I guess we learned that minervas will not be our “special” place for special occasions anymore. Kind of embarrassing.

We went for lunch prior to bridal shopping for my daughter. Overall things were great tasting but everything was a little cold. Soup, tea, main entree and the temp of the room were all a little chilly

Excellent food. Excellent salad bar with so many items to choose from. The soup delicious. Had to take my walleye dinner and key lime pie to go and both were delicious later. Minerva's is always my first stop when I come to Sioux Falls!

The food was amazing! Everyone’s meal was cooked perfectly. The waitress was a little less than attentive and we had to wait quite a while before drink orders were taken. I would not let that deter us from returning.

Ordered bruschetta. Looked and tasted like pizza. There was no diced tomatoes, no basil and no baguette. Will not order that again.

Food was fantastic. The service was ok. They skipped over a lot of the formalities of a finer dining experience. Our servers were sloppy with presentation.

It was perfect. We had a group of 8. Just left Marie and Marie....my daughter had selected her wedding dress!! It was a relaxed and casual, fun celebration. We were seated at a round table for 8 which I had requested. Again, it was perfect. Thank you.

The wait was minimal for our reservation, and seated promptly. Our waitress was very good getting us situated with drinks and getting our orders in. The steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly to order. Our meal overall was very ice and enjoyable.

We chose to dine at Minerva’s based on friend recommendation and proximity to the Orpheum Theatre. The food options are great, as was the ambiance. We had a table of 6 and the service was great. I had the Steak Michael and the presentation was great! Overall, Minerva’s was a great pick!

We love Minerva's. Always enjoy a meal here when in Sioux Falls.
This visit, four of five diners had good experience. One of our guests got a particularly tough piece of steak. She did not want to "make a scene" so we did not report it but she really had to put a lot of effort into sawing on it with a steak knife. Disappointing to say the least.
