Best salad bar in town! Nice menu selection with a friendly professional environment.
We had a wonderful experience and were able to make a same-day 6:30 reservation! It was a great! And complimentary mini desserts for the whole table in honor of my husband’s birthday!
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!
Minerva's never disappoints. Have been eating there for 30 years and food and service is always top notch.
Strip steak was grilled as requested. All food was excellent and so was the service.
It was our traditional way to celebrate our anniversary. It’s now 39 years.
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.
Perfectly cooked 12oz New York Strip (medium rare)....as always. Companion had the seafood crepe...excellent too. Perfect bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir to go with the meal
Always an outstanding place to have dinner!
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!
Minerva’s is my mom and my favorite place to eat !!
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.
Very relaxing. The food and service was exceptional, as always.
Minerva's is a Sioux Falls icon and never fails to impress. This visit was just for a quick bite before another event so the salad bar was just right for our needs. Everything was fresh and flavorful.
Great food in a pleasant environment as always.
We were able to make reservations and our table was ready when we arrived! The salad bar was fresh and delicious. Our server was pleasant and on top of things!
Birthday for my daughter. Wonderful food.
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,
Our group always loves to dine at Minerva’s!! Food and staff are always outstanding!!
We celebrated a birthday, and Minerva's makes the evening feel special! All the people, from being greeted, seated, and waited on. Were very courteous, friendly, and gave us a warm welcome feeling! We have not been disappointed in our food, always very delicious! We definitely recommend Minerva's and we will be back! We are thankful this beautiful restaurant is downtown Sioux Falls.
We were celebrating our grandsons 11th Birthday. He picked Minerva’s and we were not disappointed. Great food and we appreciate the consistent quality we always get at Minerva’s.
Excellence is what we have come to expect from Minerva’s and they consistently deliver.
Minerva's never disappoints. Great food and service.
This was an amazing dinner from the atmosphere, service, and dinner. Highly recommend.
Fabulous experience. Had several people who hadn’t been there before and everyone enjoyed everything.
Always great!! You cannot go wrong with Minerva's
Another wonderful meal at Minerva's in downtown Sioux Falls! Highly recommend the adding the salad bar to any steak on the menu!!
Once again Minerva's does not disappoint. The food was excellent - the staff was attentive and we enjoyed the atmosphere
Meeting friends for dinner- great food & service!
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.
Our meals and service were superb, as it always is.
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.
Excellent service. Great martini. Avoid the basil strawberry martini.
Got there early seated right away staff was very polite steaks were perfect and the salad bar is one of the best in town
We had a wonderful dining experience. Great ambiance, a very enticing menu, and fabulous service. Michelle provided us great service and was very personable. The food was delicious. The entire experience was very enjoyable. We can’t wait to make our next reservation. We will be regular patrons of this amazing restaurant.
