Not what it used to be…sad! Prime rib is different, they used to use a more trimmed loin that was pretty much all edible, now, 1/4 of it isn’t edible and what is isn’t as high of quality as it was. Hard to justify adding $12 to entree for a salad bar that in my opinion isn’t as good as it was. The key lime pie that was out of this world good has been modified into something that doesn’t look like pie anymore. Menu seems to be about half of it but what it used to be and many favorites are gone. They’ve tried to change things to give them a more modern presentation and but really haven’t succeeded and many of the reasons it was my go to Sioux Falls restaurant are gone.

It took forever to get our appetizer. The waiter never refilled our water or asked us if we wanted another drink. Then brought the check early. We had to then ask if we could have coffee and dessert. I think when you’re paying those kind of prices and you have a reservation, you should receive better service.

We have eaten at Minerva’s for years and dining there has always felt like a special event. Recently I have to sadly report that the last few meals there have been only average as regards the quality of the meals and service provided. Eating there now seems no different than dinner at any of the dozens of chain restaurants in the city. Prices have gone up and we fully accept that, understanding that with increased costs and the affects of Covid shutdown. We still have a lot of loyalty to Minerva’s and truly hope they can return to their pre-Covid standard.

Excellent food. Steaks cooked well. Like that - even though one of nicer restaurants in Sioux Falls - they still had a kids menu.

Small portions on soup and appetizers

French onion soup was like half bowls - didn’t seem like it got the traditional bake/broil in the oven - was like a slice of round provolone on top of the crock bowl.

Mussels - tastes awesome! But they were super small mussels- would have need 3 or 4 of their orders to get what we wanted.

Always know that you'll get a very good meal w/excellent service in a pleasant surrounding. Prime rib on Friday/Saturday nights excelllent; Hunter's Pork Chop superb; well made & generous drinks. Noah very good waiter, who repeats order to make certain he has it correct.

too bad you have the salad bar so overpriced---and also if you get an entree---the old days of Minerva's are missed---(it took a long time for dinner to arrive also)--

Our server Isaac was very attentive without being intrusive. The other service aides were polite with taking away used dishes and refilling out water glasses. Our food came out in the order that we wanted and at the pace we desired. Overall the level of experience we expect from Minerva's. I work as a shuttle driver at the Sheraton Hotel here in Sioux Falls and when asked (which is often) always recommend Minerva's as the top dinner option in Sioux Falls. When I pick our guests up after service they confirm my recommendation for quality and service. Keep up the fine quality meals and service.

Two couples on a road trip! Stopped for a few days in Sioux Falls. What a charming town! Minerva's was the frosting on this beautiful cake! Salmon is perfect! Duck is divine! Salad bar has many wonderful options! Service was spot on. Don't think about it. Just go!

The service was extremely slow. It took forever to get our appetizers which were mussels half of them were closed. Then our main course came out about three minutes later. I ordered my steak medium rare it was so rare I couldn't even finish half of it. The waitress only took off half the price of the appetizers. I will not return.

Food and service was very good, table could have been better. It was behind a little wall at the top of some stairs. Felt like we were sitting in a walkway with traffic going past both sides of the table.

Minerva’s never disappoints!! My filet was out of this world like always, and my husband had bison which was equally great. A perfectly paired bottle of wine and some delicious sides completed our amazing meal. The service and atmosphere are always top notch just like we’ve come to expect from Minerva’s, and what will always keep us coming back for more.
