Minerva's - Sioux Falls Ratings and Reviews
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 :)
The place is elegant and yet casual. I don't feel like I have to get dressed up to go here, and at the same time I feel I am in very elegant surroundings. But the food is king. I have never in my life had a steak as tender as what I get there. And it doesn't matter which cut, Ribeyes, Filets, they are all excellent. A few dollars more than going to a chain steakhouse, but worth every penny.
Food was excellent. The waitress seemed unhappy to be there. At one point she told us that we had to give our orders clockwise. We had a friend that wasn't ready to order. So it was frustrating for her to say something like that. Then she said that our food looked good...so it must be good because we were quiet. She didn't ask how it was, she told us how it was.
Food was good but service was poor. Had to ask for a coffee refill though water was readily refilled. Was VERY loud and noisy. Not the quiet atmosphere expected as all large parties were in the same room. Were there for mother's 85th birthday but were not able to carry on a conversation. Had to ask for her cake even though servers knew the reason we were there. For the price, not impressed of the service!!
Love this place. Best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Easy to relax there, and carry on a nice conversation, without combating noise. The salad bar is spot on, great selection. Our server was great, polite, well educated of the menu, and efficient. We will definitely fine there again.
I had an reservation for 745 for a group of four on Saturday Night. I also put in special features for we where celebrating two birthdays that night. We arrived and where sat 15 minutes late. We where told we could sit next to the bar, so we did and only had 2 chairs and in the way and to top it off the bartenders where extremely unpleasant. Then we where sat and in an area that was horrible with no room. The waitress was not the friendliest waitress and seemed very rushed. Food took way to long and we where comped for the appetizer. Drinks where made wrong and to top it off where got nothing for the celebration we wanted to celebrate there that night. Just wish this place would have been a lot better and friendly atmosphere to celebrate something special!!
We have frequented Minerva several times. We have yet to have anything but an excellent experience. The management and staff have their acts together.
The menu has been varied and the food has been exceptionally plated. Wine list is out of this world for such a small town restaurant .
You can take your friends, boss, spouse or customers there with out any hesitation!
We live in Minneapolis and were in town for the holidays. I wanted to take my girlfriend to a nice restaurant. The atmosphere was great and quiet enough to enjoy a good conversation.
The food and service we received was top notch and I would put it against any 5 star restaurant I've e been to.
Great place and will definitely be back when we are in town.
I haven't been to Minervas for a long time. Sad to see salad bar was an add on. Food was good. Waitress very attentive. Dessert not so good (chocolate cake) and no refill on coffee. But always love visiting Minerva's. Thank you to our waitress. Wish I had caught her name.
Went to Minerva's for my fiancés 60th bday. As usual, they didn't disappoint. The salad bar is out of this world, very expansive with high quality ingridents. The duck and Prime Rib rival some of the best restaurants in this country. The service is top shelf and its convenient downtown location makes it close for everyone. Definitely the best restaurant in Sioux Falls and worthy of being in the top 10 in any big city. Can't recommend it enough!
We thoroughly enjoy going to Minerva's. We go for the wonderfully delicious food, the atmosphere, the people, the servers, the beautiful inside setting, being able to be in such a special and beautiful place where we can enjoy seeing everyone one who is having a meal there and at the same time enjoy a private get together with our family. And yes, our after dinner Birthday treats were wonderful too.
We requested a quit booth for two but were seated right next to a server station. It was very loud and you could easily hear the workers conversations. Not what we had hoped for. This use to be our special go to place, but the menu has changed and the ambiance is not what it used to be. Won't be going back anytime soon.
