Was in town to watch LMU in tourney. Minervas was recommended. Went there for lunch. I had fabulous salad bar. My friends had walleye. They liked it very much. Salad bar was outstanding in every way. The salmon on there was fabulous. We were so satisfied we returned twice for dinner and enjoyed the steaks.

Minerva's has been a staple in the Sioux Falls fine dining scene for many, many years. Although it's often busy, as such reservations are usually necessary, it has a rather quiet ambiance. The food is always top notch and the service is as well. Whether you're stopping by for a nice lunch, treating that special someone to a great meal,... More

Minerva's is a long time established restaurant in Downtown Sioux Falls. The food is consistently good. They take reservations and have a great bar.

If you like wonderful food, delicious and delightfully presented, this is the place to go. Having eaten at restaurants in Paris at Michelin rated restaurants, this one compares favorably to them. 5 stars!

I've been here a few times and the food is always really but it can get pretty pricey. It's pretty cheap if you go for lunch and get their massive salad bar! I would definitely recommend this place!
