“If you only have time for one Jacksonville restaurant, look no further.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

A short drive from the central business district and a little tricky to find, the relatively new Black Sheep may not have made the guide-book recommendations yet, but it's got to be only a matter of time. This is one restaurant that manages to be both hip and warmly welcoming. It's on two levels, a ground-floor area and an open-air top floor. We ate with friends at the latter and had a marvelous time. The menu is impressive, with a sense of humor. The cocktail list is particularly inventive. Our server was friendly and well-informed. We dined at sunset and the staff turned on a gas heater to keep us comfortable. There's a linear fireplace in the middle of the roof, which seems to be the focal point for the bar patrons.

“Worth finding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We had a wonderful time on the roof top bar. The views are nothing to write home about, but the atmosphere, the food, and the service was the best. Parking can be a challenge.

“On the roof top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Enjoyed an afternoon break at the Black Sheep in Riverside/ 5 Points. It was a beautiful afternoon with a breeze and clear skies. I watched a hawk circle for several minutes. The wine selection was adequate for a refreshing by the glass and the smoked trout was excellently paired with a lite arugala salad. This made for a perfect stop. Will definitely return.
