We love being on the roof top! Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu. He knew exactly how to modify the entree to be plant based and was enthusiastic about doing so! Thank you.

Great concept of using local sources but fell short of expectations. Small portions and our food lacked flavor left us feeling disappointed in our dining experience. Great service and beautiful building. May return for happy hour but not a top choice for future dining.

This was a great visit. We arrived shortly before the lunch crowd came in. Food was fast, hot and delicious. I ordered the blt which was very good with cheese grits which were probably the best I’ve had. Bread was toasted a little too hard so I tore the ends off otherwise it was perfect. My daughter had the shrimp and grits and my husband ordered the spare ribs. Everything was seasoned and cooked perfectly. It’s not too often we eat out and love everything so this was a treat.

The food was very good. I had the Korean BBQ Beef Short Ribs. Our waitress was nice and attentive. She also had good suggestions and was knowledgeable of the menu. The only thing I would suggest investing in would be some fans for the outside upstairs patio for hot summer days in Jacksonville. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

The food was exquisite, and the ambiance delightful. While we could have also dined on their magnificent outdoor rooftop, it was drizzling and a little too humid, so we chose inside.
Will most def be returning, their heirloom tomato torte is 'to die for'.

We made reservations for brunch on 8/11. The food was excellent as was the service. Our meals were seasoned perfectly and every bite was delicious. The prices were very reasonable. They took our hot tea off our bill because we had to wait a “few minutes” after our meal was served. The only complaint was that it was a little warm in the restaurant. We sat in the glass enclosed area and it wasn’t cool enough. We’d go back again, next time for dinner!

I enjoyed my visit thoroughly! All of our food choices were excellent and the service was top notch. Unfortunately it was raining so we could not enjoy the rooftop. We did go up and look around the rooftop area and we plan on returning to eat on the rooftop on our next visit. The only negative is that the noise level was high.

Typically, we love this place. I took a group of out of town work friends here. We had a reservation for 6 and it ended up being 8. Instead of allowing us to push the neighboring 2-top to our table they had us squeeze into the 6-top table (it was early in the evening and a Tuesday night, not overly busy). When the food arrived one persons food was missing and didn’t arrive until everyone was almost done. Nothing was provided to this guest except blaming the kitchen. The food that came out first had clearly been sitting under the heat lamps for a while.
The views were great.

Canaveral shrimp roll was just ok. They use frozen small shrimp and too much mayo for my taste. Won’t order again. Poached eggs were perfect. Fries normally just right we’re under cooked and soggy. Bacon was inedible. Not crisp and over smoked.

In an older but trendy area that was unexpectedly modern/contemporary which added to the dining experience. Food was very good and service was good too. Some interesting options options for starters, entrees and dessert.

I have dined at Black Sheep for years. Brought out of town guests this time. Our server was sweet but not trained. She was not familiar with the menu or cocktails. Other employees no longer displayed the friendliness I’ve come to know. When asked “how are you?”, hostess even replied “fine because I’m off soon”. What does that say to the customer? Managers should watch for employee attitude of relying on Black Sheep’s “excellent reputation “ instead of continuing to give the customer a reason for that reputation. I know what Black Sheep should be as I have a family member that has worked there when standards were impeccable! I truly hope that management will reboot their staff...

My daughter and I went to the Black Sheep for dinner. At the time of making our reservation, we were unaware of the option to dine in their rooftop location which we accepted on arrival. My daughter has a sensitivity to gluten and the Black Sheep menu is very accomodating. We enjoyed the rooftop view and the cocktails. The food and service were good, but not great.

Sat on the rooftop. The view and ambiance was great as well as the food. However i went to the bathroom and our server came out of the stall when i was walking in and didn’t wash his hands!!

Tyler - Thank you for the feedback and I'm sorry you witnessed this. The stall in the men's bathroom is equipped with it's own sink, though, because of this exact situation, we train our staff to use the main bathroom sink. I hope this was the situation with your experience but we will use this opportunity to retrain our staff members. Best regards - Allan
