“Great attitude & service from wait staff& bar staff”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

The best service and attitude we have seen anywhere we have been. We sat at the bar and were well entertained by Kurt and Jersey Boy the two bartenders. The drinks they mixed were amazing. We started ceviche, and beet salad. Both were delicious. Our steaks were perfectly cooked. The side of blue cheese bread pudding was savory and the creamed peas were wonderful. We dined at the sister restaurant Orsay the previous night and were not impressed. Black Sheep is a must.

“This Black Sheep is beautiful”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

My wife and I had heard many people saying how awesome Black Sheep is so we decided to go. We were not disappointed. I had a 3 beers, my wife had a glass of wine. Both very nice. We ordered an appetizer of fried green olives, (Yeah, I know) but they were awesome. We then ordered a cheese plate that was very nice and a change from what we usually get. I had the bone-in Pork Chop and my wife had the Florida Striped Bass. Both were excellent and we were very impressed by the food. My bride doesn't usually like Southern Food but this was exceptional. We ended the night with Pumpkin Cheese Cake and coffee. After all was said and done our bill was less than $100. For all we wolfed down, what a deal!!! We WILL be going back again.

We also visited the roof-top bar/dining area that was VERY nice and something very different for Jacksonville. It was cold so we didn't stay up there but we will be requesting a table up there in the future...

Go get some Black Sheep soon!

“Beautiful Black Sheep”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

What an upbeat for Jacksonville restaurant scene! The third floor outdoor deck is very modern with nice outdoor heaters which made for a lovely mid-afternoon after Cummer Museum break! The owners also bring experience from sister restaurant (Restaurant Orsay--just down the road a short distance). The menu is eclectic and delightful with a decent wine by glass option. Attentive service noted too.

“wow - what a great addition to the Jax restaurant scene”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

A friend recommended Black Sheep over a year ago but it took us until last night to get there. - I regret it took us so long! What a great restaurant! Black Sheep is my new favorite restaurant in Jacksonville. Everything was superb: atmosphere, service, food, presentation. I would describe the menu as elevated comfort food, which I love. Options all sound wonderful in a very un-fussy way. Service is the same - unfussy - Our waiter was great: personable, knowledgeable, efficient. Smiles all around from the greeting to the goodbye. The wine list is very good, with some very reasonable options. The room is urban chic - slick and classy. Prices are medium-high, but really very reasonable for an upscale restaurant. They have outdoor seating (which was not an option on this cold night) and I heard they have an amazing rooftop area - can't wait to go back when the weather is nicer and try those out. Overall, a first-class addition to the Jax restaurant scene.

“Great farm to table restaurant”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

The food here is very good. You can't beat the freshness of a farm to table restaurant and this one is a great find. Love the atmosphere and location as well.
