We always enjoy dining at Minerva's. As usual the service was excellent and the salad bar features a wide variety of great options. My wife's rib eye was excellent, but my walleye was slightly over-done, although the sauce was delicious.

We always have excellent service, and the food is high quality. However, this last time we went, my husband was disappointed in his ribeye steak. As usual, our server was outstanding.

A good option for dinner in downtown Sioux Falls. Good apps and an exceptional salad bar with just about everything plus soups.

Entrees were good with steaks being very well cooked. I had the duck with lingonberry sauce. It was good but a touch dry for my liking.

Desserts were classic and both Creme brûlée and chocolate cake were excellent.

Lastly, service was great.

Great food and service. It feels very elegant but warm and friendly. The house wine was delish and the food was prepared perfect. I had a steak salad and normally I would get a smaller portion of steak any where else but the steak was a generous size! It was a really nice evening!

For years every time i come to Sioux Falls I have dinner at Minerva's. Years ago with my children or my Mother and always with my cousin who lives there. Last week I brought my cousin for her 99th birthday. She had a wonderful time and as always enjoyed a delicious filet and baked potato. For dessert they brought us lemon cake and ice cream with a candle in Lu's. It was perfect. Thank you!

We dined with another couple prior to attending the performance of Chicago at the Washington Pavilion. Great choice before a show because it’s a short walk to the Pavilion. Another great meal and wonderful service.

My wife was craving for some of their white cheddar mash potatoes , so we stop by to dine in. I ordered a filet mignon, medium rare cooked to perfection, and my wife oreded the salmon. After the entree came out, we noticed there wasn't any mashed potatoes and Crystal, our server, forgot to mention that they ran out of it. We told her the main reason we stop by is because of the mashed potatoes, it is that good. She felt really bad, although we did not intended to make her feel that way, and apologized and offered to replace it with another side dish. It was not a big deal, so we told her it was fine. To our surprise, the chef went above and beyond and make us some white cheddar mashed potatoes. For them to go that far and made something so little to make us satisfied, that alone have earned my business and recommendation to my friends and families that Minerva's is the place to go.

My wife enjoyed her blackened salmon very much. I decided to try the chicken breast oscar. I was a little disappointed in it but was okay. I just didn't feel it was on par with the usual outstanding meals I have had there. The salad bar was, as normal, outstanding.

Minerva's was recommended to my by a local relative when I was in Sioux Falls to see the Sound of Music at Washington Center. The location is perfect - only a block away from the theater. Downtown Sioux Falls is really quaint - and this fits the bill. They have excellent service, a really good and expansive salad bar with two soup selections. I had the honey pepper salmon and it was excellent. Others at our table a seafood macaroni and cheese, filet and walleye. Everyone said their food was very good. The place was busy, and I'm guessing by the patronage and blend of ages that it's been a reliable dining and special location for many years......but not so old school that it keeps the younger set away. We really liked it!

This restaurant is one of MY FAVORITES ANYWHERE. I live half time in Las Vegas & am from there. I've been on 22 cruises and travel all of the time. The food and atmosphere at Minerva's is OUTSTANDING. It is somewhat quiet with medium level lighting, nice booths and a HUGE salad bar that is always fresh. You can dress up, or go for the business casual look. I've seen jeans and nice tops/shirts too that work well there. The ambiance is delightful, the food delicious and decently priced. Conveniently located downtown. I just can't recommend it enough. It is always a treat to dine there for any reason, anytime. If you haven't been, GO NOW!

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.
