Being rated as the #1 restaurant in Sioux Falls, we expected much more. The interior definitely could use updating. We had Walleye appetizer which was overcooked (fried) but flavorful and the sauce was great. We had chicken/shrimp combo that was over salted and beef stroganoff which was cut into little square cubes and again over salted. Bar drinks were well prepared and service was good. For this particular meal I would have rated it lower were it not a landmark restaurant. Hopefully it was just an 'off' night.
The server Barb was excellent and very attentive and we appreciated her wearing a mask. Had an issue with one meal but she made it right and we will definitely come back, thanks to her.
Good. Not exceptional but a good time. Nice ambiance, pleasant server, food good.
Had 10 oz prime rib, nothing special had much better at other places. Had get service.
Even though they have a limited menu the food is still amazing! I have never been disappointed and will continue to return
Had a great dining experience. We especially enjoyed the tiramisu dessert.
Great dining as always at Minerva’s in Sioux Falls.
Best steak ever! Actually got it rare - thank you to the Chef.
Great steak and walleye! Service was fast and friendly, reasonably priced food and drinks. As out of towners we wouldn’t have found this if not for Opentable, glad they were on there.
Limited not very interesting menu. Duck was overcooked, hamburger was undercooked, steak was perfect. The pandemic has not been kind to the operations of what was once the best in Sioux Falls.
Disappointed in prime rib. Both my wife’s and mine looked absolutely scrumptious but they were very tough. Not typical Minerva’s quality. Missed the salad bar but that certainly was understandable given current conditions.
Minerva’s is a classic restaurant. Great food and service. Love the ambience.
We were coming to Minerva’s from Texas to celebrate our first anniversary after having our wedding rehearsal dinner there last year. We understand life is crazy currently, but the food was subpar. I’ve been eating here my whole life, but I’ve never had cold food or poorly cooked food come out of the kitchen. We had marked on our reservation what the occasion was, and there was no acknowledgement. The former owners would have never let that slide.
There's a first time for everything and this was our first time going back to Minerva's for dinner service since the quarantine. We did lunch one other time a month prior. Overall the experience and food was good. I had the salmon special which was prepared perfectly. We also had the lime shrimp and that was also a great dish. The wait staff all wore masks and many patrons did, too... until food or drinks arrived as expected. They social distanced as much as possible and had multiple hand sanitizer stations available. It was what we expected and good to see their business was functioning more "normally". No salad bar at this time, still the same great flavors at the table. Would not hesitate to return.
They were very accommodating with the menu. Great service. Would definitely go back.
Great food and service with a very cool old school ambiance. Highly recommended!
Food wasnt done the way asked, but servers helped fix everything quickly. Overall decent experience but wasnt an over the top dinner
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 waiter and service was excellent. Food was great!
Waiter was VERY attentive. He noticed daughter pulled onions off the salad and offered to have them removed from her entree. Conscientious and safe venue to enjoy a nice dinner.
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
Minerva’s never disappoints. The service is excellent, the food is delicious and the entire experience makes me want to go back again as soon as possible!
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.
It was a pleasure to dine at Minervas. Good food, great wait staff.
Steaks were delicious. They never disappoint especially for food or service.
Kind of dark and hard to see. Otherwise, the staff was great and food was tremendous.
We’ve dined at Minerva’s many times and it’s always good.
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.
Top notch as always. Daughter commented about how the apple juice was so fresh AND cold. My pork chop was fantastic
Even though it was slightly expense it was worth the price. The atomphosre was very enjoyable.
Great food and service, as usual! My wife and I really enjoy dining there
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.
Steak was barely undercooked (ordered it med) still tasted great and salad bar is always awesome. Good service
I had the Steak Micheal. It was outstanding and of course the salad bar and soup was super also. Outstanding service.
Wonderful food an enjoyable evening.
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.
I definitely wouldn’t say the food was bad, but we didn’t feel it met our expectations considering we were at minerva’s
Service was great
Food is always amazing here as well as the service!
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 🤩
