My wife and I dined there Saturday night, as usual everything all good. The Salmon in their updated salad bar was delicious! Enjoyed a few cocktails beforehand at their Paramount Bar, just a great overall experience!

Great food!
Great Service!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Our waitress was terrible she didn’t ask my husband how he wanted his prime rib cooked so it was terribly over cooked. She was super slow where it took us 2 hours to finish dinner.

Everything was going well until another group came in after us and got their food before us. The shrimp cocktail is a rip off honestly, 6 shrimp for $15 is outrageous. Also I like my food hot and when we finally got our food it was lukewarm at best.

It was just Ok. My meal (salmon) was pretty good... but the vegetarian options are abysmal. One would think a restaurant trying to be modern/classy would have some kind of option. They really didn’t. The modification they made was overpriced and a pretty uninspired effort. Probably will not be going back.

Food quality, presentation, taste and value for the money was very disappointing. Such a shame because the service was excellent and the restaurant is beautiful inside. We had the prime rib and the nordic salmon. Two of our favorite meals, but not at this restaurant.

Went for the DTFS Burger Battle burger selection, and burger was delicious. Old School, but very tasty. Served in a basket with 2 suckers for desert was a nice touch!!

One of the best restaurants in the area. Minerva’s is one of the few places with consistently great service and food. The ambiance is perfect for a date, a meal with friends /family or a business dinner. Staff is attentive and welcoming and everything on the menu is delicious.

Minervas was my favorite special occasion restaurant growing up. Having moved out of state I haven’t had the pleasure of eating there for almost 30 years. I was home visiting my parents for a special weekend so we made a reservation and it was just as amazing as I remember it. Our waitress and serve team were outstanding! Thank you!

Was only 2 other tables in the restaurant as we arrived at 9pm. Took 20 min to get our drinks.I just ordered the hamburger med, was very dark when I got it & had been pre-made & heated up. Not an drip of juice in it. Worst meal i have ever had. My husband order a steak, overdone & very tough. Will NOT be going back to this Minervas again.
