    The salad bar at Minerva’s is the best of anywhere I know of. It’s huge, fresh & unique, delicious selections! My chicken Oscar was pretty good. Husband’s NY strip was excellent, cooked perfectly- medium rare. Go hungry, lots of food!

    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.

    Service at the front end of our visit was painfully slow. Given that many of the waitstaff were idly chatting with each other in front of us, it seemed ridiculous at how long we waited for our server’s initial appearance and then again for our drinks. We considered leaving. The steaks were amazing, the sides were just okay. My husband ordered a baked potato which was not fully cooked in the center. My Brussel sprouts were tasty, but lukewarm. The steaks were so good, I’d return and give the place another chance if I was local.

    Unfortunately Minerva’s isn’t what it used to be. More limited menu selections with some of the classics gone. Salad bar more expensive not as good. Prime rib not trimmed like it used to be and inconsistent quality. Side selection not as good as it used to be. Almost unbeatable white bread replaced with local Breadico bread that is good but not better than previous offering…same with Starbucks coffee replaced by Coffea coffee which IMO isn’t as good and is overrated. Once unbelievably good key lime is just ok with new more “modern” presentation….all adds up to looking for our new favorite spot in Sioux Falls.

    We've been going here on the 16th of September for years for our anniversary. This time was the saddest and probably the last time for us. I usually take a picture of my food because it looks so good. This time not so much. With inflation my 10 ounce prime rib turned into a 6 ounce prime rib if even. I am not joking. It was a 1/4 inch thick. Was not tender. I looked at last years picture to verify. I've never ordered the larger size so they can't say that I did last time. The bread was tougher too. My baked potato and salad was fine. My wife ordered the same thing as last year and this time it was dry. I have no other words to say except goodbye to Minerva's. Showing last years photo.

    Overall underwhelmed. We were celebrating an anniversary, which was noted on the reservation but never mentioned over the course of our dinner. Starting with drinks, the experience was mundane. Both cocktails were shallow pours, and the cosmo tasted like straight lemon juice. The presentation of the food was also rather disappointing. The filet came on a plate with a glob of mashed potatoes. The asparagus was thrown on a separate plate and another plate held the sweet potato fries (half of which fell off the plate when the server put them on the table).

    Very good experience overall! Our server was Ellie and she was attentive and helpful. Food was a little slow to get out but Ellie did a great job in spacing out delivery of the appetizer, soup, and bread to make that time go by. Only complaint was a very minor one and the brussel sprouts felt slightly underdone, flavor was good just felt like they needed another few minutes. The steak I ordered was great, and a perfect medium rare! My wife ordered the pheasant risotto and enjoyed that as well! Thank you very much to the staff at Minerva’s for making our anniversary a great night.
