Service was very slow. Steaks were not cooked properly. We were kind of disappointed. Normally we have always been pleased.

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!

The special was prime rib, it was wonderful. I also had the corn & pepper risotto, it was wonderful. I was very full when I was done. It was a great experience. We'll definitely come again when we are in town.

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.

My lunch group loves to go to Minerva's for birthday lunches. We love their salad bar and the tomato soup is "to die for"! Everyone in our party received a small personal piece of cake and scoop of ice cream because we were celebrating my birthday. Mine had a candle!

I expected much more from Minerva's than we got. It has a long reputation as one of Sioux Fall's best steakhouses. So expectations were rightly high. Unfortunately, the food was just average. My Minerva's Strip Steak was not tender, in fact it was tough. It was well sized, cooked correctly to order, but my guess is that it lacked the ageing necessary to produce a tender New York Strip. The salad bar was large, fresh, and well maintained with some nice offerings like crumbled blue cheese and pickled herring that you don't see on other bars. Appetizers were just average, the wine selection was nice, the servers were capable, but in the end you're there for the steaks and they didn't live up to expectations.

The steak Michael needed to be trimmed - way too much fat and grissle!! Hard to eat - had to spit out a lot of it!!!!!!!!!
The house salads were ice cold .... taking away flavor.

Food came out piping hot and everyone's orders smelled and looked delicious. I had the salad bar which never disappoints but I might recommend GF crackers available there. Great cheese spread and herring would be better with crackers. Always enjoy a meal at Minerva's with excellent service.
