We were visiting Sioux Falls for the weekend and everyone raves about Minerva’s. It did not disappoint. Great steaks and even better service. We had Bradford as our server...he was awesome. Everything flowed great. Our meal was wonderful.

Service and dinner was absolutely amazing! Steak and pork chops cooked to perfection. The only bad mark was the appetizer was overcooked. Even then it was still very tasty. My only regret was not saving room for dessert.

Filet was so tender and cooked perfectly. My husband had some scallops that just melted in your mouth. The salad bar was fabulous as always. Did take us a bit of time to get in and out. Only an issue for us since we have a 3 year old and 9 month old with limited patience.

Always enjoy dining here. Even on Valentine's day. I had the walleye dinner and it wasn't very good. It seemed pre prepared for the rush so I can forgive that. All in all a little off. Menu wasn't as interesting as the ad suggested. Underwhelmed is the best I can say. I will still come back.

Food was delicious. I had the seafood crepe which was just the perfect size for me. Noise level was really good. It was easy to carry a conversation without needing to raise the sound of your voice. Good ambiance too.

Great meal. Started with the salad bar, then moved to the cioppino seafood dish that was part of the Mardi Gras special. Spicier than I expected, but very good. Polished it off with a local IPA. Nice.

Our favorite place to celebrate! There are 11 ladies in our birthday lunch Club and we often go to Minervas. The food is excellent. Most of us just get the salad bar because it is everything you could ever want and the soups are amazing! Each one of us gets a special birthday dessert, not just the birthday girl. 😊 It is such a fun place to celebrate your birthday. The waitress was more than helpful in dividing our checks out and her accuracy was impeccable.

My husband and I love Minerva's! This was our 3rd date night here and we always get dressed up and have a "fancy" date night when we go. There is a good variety on the menu without offering everything under the sun - and what they make, they make well. Fantastic wine and alcohol selection. We have always had outstanding service. And dessert! Save room for the crème brule!

The service was excellent and the atmosphere was generally very nice. There was a baby crying, so that was a bit distracting. The salad bar was as amazing as ever--we all remarked about how it is the best in the region. The seafood crepe used to be my favorite, but the recipe has changed in recent years (we don't get to Minerva's more than once a year) and it was a disappointment. The other meals met expectations. As it was a birthday celebration, we were given some complimentary cake & ice cream--a very nice finish to the meal.

We came for a date night. 1st off salad bar was goid, nice selection great Tomato soup. I ordered the New York strip medium, it came out medium rare and was bright red in the middle, the cut off meat was tough and grissley. Could go to Hyvee and grill a better steak at home. The Waitress took it back to have it cooked properly and when she brought it out said well next time make sure to note that our steaks are a little more on the under cooked side. I guess I would expect a establishment such Minervas the Kitchen staff would be trained on the proper doneness of a steak. No manager or anyone came out to visit about the steak or the meal. I have observed this common practice at other establishments that when something isn't right they come out and try to correct it.

The food was fantastic and the "famous" salad bar lived up to its name. While the service wasn't poor, it was a little slower than we liked. We waited a while for our server, for our drinks, bread. We ordered a cocktail before we ordered, but our server never approached us about another. We'll dine here again and hope the slowness was a fluke.

We were told we could change our reservation from 8:15 to 7:30 which was great but then we were asked if a private room would be ok when we arrived. I agreed but wished I had not. We were stuck in a tiny room with a round and square table put together. Just not what I had expected I guess for the ambience I wanted. Everything else was good. Waitress did a nice job and the food was good.

For years we’ve been going to Minerva’s. It’s been our favorite place to dine. Since they had a special Mardi Gras menu, my husband decided to have the jambalaya. We have Louisiana friends, have had it at their home, and even have their recipe, and have eaten it in the South. This wasn’t anything like how it is made there. Very disappointing! I had Salmon, which was excellent, but the mashed potatoes served with it were cold and dry. We were treating the other couple, as it was a birthday. I don’t know how they felt about their food. But this was clearly not up to Minerva’s standards.
