“Good experience, nice setting”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We traveled to Rapid City on business and went here on the recommendation of a local colleague. The service was good and the food was definitely above average. We found a good selection on the menu to meet the needs of our varied preferences. We would go back.

“Wonderful food in a lovely restaurant”

Friends and I eat at Minerva's once a month. The salmon, pasta, and pork are our choices. All are excellent. Service is very good, and the atmosphere is excellent.

“Nice atmosphere with piano player, but YUCK”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

We sat for 15 min. before waitress came by. Two other tables where seated after us and had received their drinks and salads. She never told us the specials, luckily we had listened to everyone around us order. We had to ask three times for the correct drinks. The house salad was excellent, but arrived right before my cold unseasoned Gorgonzola steak pasta. How can Gorgonzola pasta have no flavor? The three tables next to us all had issues with their food and service. The table next to us ordered a dessert to share three ways. The mother had to move her daughters dinner plate so the waiter could set down plate, stacking it on hers. The father had his dinner plate, their three salad plates in front of him, so he had to sit at the other seat to share dessert. We never got a refill on our empty water. When my husband asked if he could get more water, she filled his and left mine empty. It was a busy Saturday night. We literally went to eight other restaurants and they were packed. So thought we would give it a try. There was no wait, that should have been our first clue. Never again!

“Wonderful in Every Way”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a delightful dinner. Husband said his steak was perfectly cooked and would melt in your mouth. Tomato bisque was amazing and walleye dinner was fantastic. Sevice was perfect and prices reasonable. Beautiful decor as well.
