A great little cafe in downtown Provo. We were seated promptly our waitress Haley was great. We ordered the specials Pork Jowl nachos and the filet tacos both were amazing. The meal was pricey but worth it.

Friends took us to Black Sheep and they were right, their food is delicious! Definitely try the frybread with honey butter! But actually everything is good! I had the vegetarian version of the Bleu Fire Shrimp and the Enchiladas, both were really good! Also try the sweet potato fries! We had a lovely night, the food was great and the... More

All expectation were meet and exceeded. Had the surf and turf special and it was amazing! This is my second time here and plan on a return trip next month. If you like southwest with a gourmet twist this place is for you!

I've eaten at Black Sheep twice and their food and service was really good both times. The inventive dishes are all in a Southwestern theme. Things are flavored with discretion and no spice owns the dish, but rather multiple flavors and textures interact. Portions are fair but not bounteous.

This is currently the best place to eat in the Provo/Orem area. I had the Chimi-rellano and it was, by far, the best thing I have ever eaten. Service is a bit slow, but they make up for it in the quality of food.

The service is impeccable, the hostess was so warm and greeted us right off the bat. I love the atmosphere here, and the location. It feels like a chic cafe in a big modern city. The food is delivered and its a masterpiece to look at and a party to the taste buds. The buffalo nickel burger was amazing. Its... More

I love finding restaurants where not only are the flavors unique, but the presentation is artistic, and The Black Sheep Cafe gets highest marks on both counts. This restaurant features inventive flavor twists - between the three of us we had tacos, a salad, and a burger and we ended up sharing all of our plates so that we could... More

Friends recommended this place so went for dinner with some friends while visiting Provo Monday night. Tried their award winning Hog Jowl Tacos. The flavored were delicious! Had a sweet coleslaw on perfectly prepared corn tortillas but very little of the pork:(. The taco flavors were amazing but the portions were small and paid $21 for 3 tacos!!!! Didn't even... More

Came in with a date tonight, we were met with a wonderful welcome from the hostess as soon as we came in, and was sat right away! We had a three course meal ending in a delightful cheese cake, the kitchen does a wonderful job and the service was on-par, props the wait staff!

What a joke. First they told us we couldn't make reservations. I made one in front of the hostesses face and still said I didn't have one. I don't recommend this place. If they can't get reservations organized imagine how the kitchen is.
