Minerva's - Sioux Falls Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I were in town for a weekend getaway. And we usually look for a nice, quiet romantic place. We found that here. The staff is super nice and answered all our questions. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet and romantic place for any occasion.
In SF to pickup sculpture from exhibit. Minerva's close to hotel and luckily we were eating a little later than most people do there, as it was Friday night. In fact exhibit director expressed amazement we were able to get in next morning, until I mentioned later dine.
Great food, good service. Only glitch, I ordered a tequila up, and it came "rocks"- a terrible fate for $50/ bottle liquor.
Try the duck!

THANK YOU MINERVAS,, James Michael Dosch FROM Billion Chrysler..
Great atmosphere and historic feel. Very good service as added to dining experience. People flowed well thru the night. Bar was fun and got sense lots of history. Felt local yet sense of sophistication. Easy to navigate and salad bar was excellent. Food menu was diverse and delivery was timely. Good Mix of families and couples. Tables we close enough togetherness so cozy.
I belong to a birthday group of women that go out for lunch to cekebrate their birthdays. The birthday girl gets to pick the restaurant. We get prettu happybwhen she choses Minerva' s because we LOVE the salad bar there (and the tomato soup is to "die" for). Our server is always very gracious when we ask for separate checks and she brings us each a little birthday cake with ice cream for dessert. The birthday girl gets a piece with a lot candle. ❤
I was super impressed with Minerva's overall. The service we experienced was delightful, our waitress was extremely polite, and she made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Although there were a lot of people there at the time, I was still able to have a conversation, I did not feel like I had to shout. The energy of the restaurant was lively and the atmosphere was very classy. I would definitely recommend this as a place for celebrating birthdays or anniversaries, but it also would be a perfect spot for a date.
As usual our expectations were exceeded. Nice service. An interesting and varied menu. The salad bar is a local institution and could be on the Nat'l Register of Amazing Food Options. The folks at the table next to us were a little on edge but we simply settled farther into our booth and ignored them. Each time we visit SFalls we research the new dining options with the idea of branching out. But why settle elsewhere when Minerva's is quite simply the best?
A wonderful experience! We had a reservation for 8 PM and were seated immediately when we arrived at 7:55 PM. The waitress (Crystal) was exceptional and very attentive. We had our water glasses filled without ever needing to ask and dirty dishes taken away quickly. Our steaks had delicious flavor and done to perfection. It was a wonderful evening and will definitely visit Minerva's again!
We can always count on the salad bar and desserts to be really good. We never order the menu items in the evening because we have been disappointed by them too many times. The salad bar and desserts were great, though! The place was so noisy and crowded, but that was OK.
Had a reservation for 5:45 Pm. We were sat at 6:15 and we got our food at 7:10. The whole point of making a reservation was so we could be sat at 5:45 and have time to eat and make the movie at 7:30 like we planned. Well we didn't make the movie because we didn't get out of there till 7:30. Server barely spoke to us and seemed like we were bugging her. Needless to say we won't be back. The one at the Lakes is way better.
The food was excellent as always! The staff was VERY attentive...they kept trying to take plates where we were obviously still eating off of, this started to make us feel unwelcome. Then when we were ready to leave one of the staff was hovering over our table and even talking to us as we put on our coats. We paid with cash and left it on the table with the check and she did not even wait for us to clear her vision before rushing to it to be sure that we had paid. We were dressed nice, my husband had on a dress shirt and slacks and I was in a nice blouse and capris with nice shoes - Just made us both feel like they thought we were going to dine and ditch...if we were going the type to do that I think we would have ordered more than just water for our drinks!
I was born and raised in South Dakota and since 40 years living in Switzerland where we get a good selection of restaurants with influence from central Europe. I had lunch and then dinner in the evening and was very surprised with the very good food, service and ambience. I have only been there for two meals but will definitely come back if I am in Sioux Falls again. The cod fish cakes for appetiser were excellent but the (tartar sauce) was not necessary. Leave those fish cakes with some lemon alone!! The New York Strip was divine - only I thought medium instead of ordered medium rare. No problem, it was great! The wine list was very nice. The lady serving me was extremely friendly and knowledgable. Unfortunately could not try the deserts. This restaurant can certainly be recommended. Bravo!!!
6pm reservation. Arrived at 6pm. Seated (after asking twice how long it would be) at 6:20. Put our order in at 6:35. Server was great. At 7:10 we told our server that we would not have time to enjoy our meal as we had tickets to a 7:30 performance. When our food arrived at 7:15 we refused it. The manager insisted we accept the food to go and our entire meal was comped.
This situation was handled appropriately, but it shouldn't have happened in the first place.
Went on a Friday for a birthday supper. I am pregnant, so limited on my options of what I can eat at restaurants at times. I was very excited to see prime rib as the special, so myself and my sister's husband ordered that. About 15 minutes after we ordered, our server regretted to inform us that the prime was now unavailable so I had to choose a different item. I was disappointed, but they ended up taking very good care of us and meeting any needs I had as a pregnant woman. Amazing service. Our server was just amazing at how she handled things and had such an upbeat personality. Even though I didn't get what I originally wanted, I still got a great tasting meal and left very happy :)
