Out if a table of 6, only 2 of us were happy with our meal at a level comparable to the prices. My Ribeye was fantastic and done perfectly. My friend had the duck and said it was lacking the gaminess she was looking for and that it tasted like chicken. The setting was dim lit and warm as Minerva’s had always been. Service was friendly and prompt for a Saturday night.

Been several years since we ate here. Very nice atmosphere and clean. Customers at bar surprised us a bit when they started cheering unusual for a nice place like this. Waitress was very friendly and I had the coconut curry chicken and it was fantastic, it does have a bit of spicy to it so if you don't like hot don't eat that. Chocolate Cheesecake and Tiramisu was out of this world. Price is a bit high but it is fine dining so can expect that. I would go back.

Upgrade table salt to sea salt - table salt is outdated. Food was delish but cold. Wanted quiet area...sitting by the place where dishes were dumped was a bit noisy. Lightening was too bright. Otherwise, was very exceptional :)

The only complaint that I had was that it was COLD in the restaurant, so much so that I thought my food was going to get cold as well . . . and I'm not usually cold at all. I debated going to get my winter coat out of the coat closet and wear it while I enjoyed my meal. I also wondered if the air conditioner was on.

We were celebrating my mom’s 90th birthday. Our server did a great job and it was a special evening. There was a small issue with one of our meals. They went above and beyond by giving us free dessert for our inconvenience.

Opened in 1977, this is still a solid performing American fare restaurant. The entrees include a variety of steaks cooked to perfection, as well as chicken and fish. Huge salad bar with soup, greens, and side salads.

Great food, however I think it would be wise to refresh the menu with new options. It might be a good idea to offer an additional seasonal menu. We don't go as often as we used to because we've tried most everything on the menu. The servers need to give time for people to finish their salads/soups before bring out the main course. My measure of a good restaurant vs a exceptional restaurant is not just great food, but a waitstaff that does a good job pacing the meal.
