Minerva's never disappoints, thank you for the lovely evening! The salad bar is always fantastic. My husband ordered the Wagyu skirt steak which was a restaurant week special and it was phenomenal! You should add it to the regular menu.

We went to Minerva’s to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary and everything was amazing! Service was prompt, wait staff attentive and met all of our needs. The salad bar was outstanding as usual. We had a party of 12 but all food arrived at the same time hot and prepared exactly as ordered. They even provided everyone with a small dessert to celebrate! Definitely our go to place!

Absolutely love the salad bar with so many choices.
I gave the food a "4" because for the 1st time ever, my husband had to send his filet back to be cooked a little more. He ordered a medium rare, and much of it was very rare.
Everything else, including the chocolate cake that we ordered to take home was excellent.
Service was exceptional.

Haven't been in Sioux Falls for a few years, so was pleased to find Minerva's still outstanding in every way. Our Server was the best and made the experience the best. And you can tell a great restaurant when all the staff pitch in and help each other and serve all customers - not just their own.

Salmon was well prepared, the coconut shrimp appetizer my husband's favorite. The Tomato Zucchini Soup perfect.

When we checked in (10 min early) for our reservation they said there would be a 5 min wait. Apparently they checked us off as seated at that time. We waited (standing) in the bar. it took 15 min for a bartender to catch up with us even though we were standing at the bar. After 30 min I rechecked on our table and they informed me that we were seated. I explained that was not correct. That seemed to annoy them. We were seated shortly, in a small booth set up for 2. We were a party of 4 (as noted in our reservation). We walked past 2 available tables for 4 on the way to the booth. We were seated with 3 menus. I would like to credit the waitress for doing her best to make up for the poor treatment we had received. The topping on my ribeye was thicker than the steak was cut. The house salad was limp. All OK but not the caliber of food expected for the price tag.

Minerva’s is the most consistent restaurant I have ever been to. The food and service are always top notch. I did notice that the clientele come in all “shapes and sizes.” From jeans and caps to suit and tie. I know you can’t do anything about it...but thought I’d mention it!

The restaurant had great reviews and word of mouth but I'm not sure why. I sat at the bar for dinner and the steak I ordered was overcooked and very dry. The sides were very bland. The highlight of the evening was the service from the bartender. He was genuinely excited to be there and very engaging. I would return for drinks and happy hour but not dinner.

we have come to this place several times in the past. we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. as always the food was great. noise level was fine. we did not think the waitress was as good as a lot of the people we ha before. do not get me wrong she did ok but in a high end restaurant the attention should be over the top in my book. overall a good time,

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.
