Centrally located, Nice atmosphere, good service, delicious food. The seafood mac & cheese is sinfully scrumptious. Reasonable prices

The Sunday Breakfast buffet with made to order omelettes, good salad. Didn't taste the ribs looked awesome though. Very accommodating for a larger group!

Food & service was great....not a long wait for a party of 9. Enjoyed the atmosphere as everyone was friendly. Prices are on the high side but it is a very elegant place!

Good food. Service could be better, but overall it was worth the trip. They have really good pasta. Not horrible prices, but it's more spendy than most places in Boji.

Love eating at Minerva's. Stopped in this past week and was craving one of their wonderful salads. Upon arriving we were told by the hostess that we would have to wait because they had 2 large parties arrive and their were no menus. The restaurant was by no means "full". Confused as to why they wouldn't have enough menus, or... More

The food was very good, the service was good and the meal was cheap by Saint Paul Standards but it really wasn't different from anything we hadn't had before,

Like the variety of food. I ordered a salad with salmon. A very generous helping of salmon. Service was slightly slow and the restaurant was not overly busy but not slow enough that I would have complained. I would return.

Great steak, love the Italian salad. Service was excellent. We were close to being the last to leave but did not feel one bit "rushed" to have us leave. Will definitely return!

We probably wouldn't have went here with four kids between my friend and I but it was located in the hotel we were staying at and we had a small voucher that came with our reservation. The service was slow considering they weren't very busy but everyone was friendly. The food was okay.
