    Very good experience overall! Our server was Ellie and she was attentive and helpful. Food was a little slow to get out but Ellie did a great job in spacing out delivery of the appetizer, soup, and bread to make that time go by. Only complaint was a very minor one and the brussel sprouts felt slightly underdone, flavor was good just felt like they needed another few minutes. The steak I ordered was great, and a perfect medium rare! My wife ordered the pheasant risotto and enjoyed that as well! Thank you very much to the staff at Minerva’s for making our anniversary a great night.

    Our waiter did an outstanding service. He was professional and courteous. Our spot was nice and quiet. Wish you would put the Seafood Crepe back on the menu as well as the crab and potato crusted salmon. We enjoyed the lemon cake and ice cream to celebrate our anniversary.

    Great business lunch. Quality food, quiet enough to have real conversation and just a great overall choice. Try the Salmon Asparagus salad! Delicious, especially in Sioux Falls where vegetables are a more rare commodity.

    We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived on time. A party with a later reservation that walked in ahead of us received lots of attention. When I approached the desk, I was told I would have to wait for the host to come back. The service was sub par also. It wasn’t due to lack of help

    My wife & I split a wedge salad. It was so large I could not believe it was a serving for one person and I would recommend splitting it. We both had the prime rib and it was delicious. We dined there six years ago when passing through Sioux Falls and loved it. I am sohappy that it was as good as we remembered.

    Food was good but my sirloin steak was completely burnt. I asked for it to be well done but I didn’t want to charred. I ended up cutting the outside of the steak off in order to enjoy my steak. Mashed potatoes were great.

    Was looking forward to a good Mid-Western old school steak house... missed the mark. Manhattan, no luxardo or even any cherry, a rock would have been nice. Steak bites appetizer was way over done, they did remove it from the bill- they offered. A nice touch. Steaks, just okay. Service was okay but not real attentive given this is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Sioux Falls.

    steaks were good but a little under cooked. White cheddar mashed potatoes were very good. Got free dessert since steak was not perfect. Mushrooms were very good and got a whole bowl of them. Crème Brule was excellent. service was great.

    Food for my family from DC and I were so pleased. Entrees included awesome prime consumed by my son-in-law, was reported as “perfect” as ordered, the seafood special and the chicken Oscar was wonderful. Our server Noah was on task with prompt service with drink orders and food. Thank you for a wonderful meal prior to “Come From Away” and our Mothers Day celebrating. Martinis were great.

    Minerva's in Sioux Falls was our "go to" restaurant for special celebratory dinners (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) when we lived closer. We're now 100 miles away, and we don't get there very often. Perfect dinner selection after a matinee performance at the Washington Pavilion. Our visit brought back pleasant memories.

    Waiter was very pleasant and friendly. Cocktails and wine were delivered quickly. Table bread was warm and delicious. Walleye and trout were very, very good - perfectly cooked. Brussels sprouts, sadly, were overgrown, bitter, and tough. Should have known better, but we love Brussels sprouts. Mashed potatoes weren't hot. Desserts were fabulous!

    I indicated the reservation was for a birthday but nothing came of it. There was no acknowledgement that this was for a birthday. No cake. No desert with a candle on it. No singing. Why ask me if there is an occasion if the restaurant totally ignores the request. I was extremely disappointed and will NOT patronize Minervas again.
