We stopped in for brunch Sunday morning and chose to sit on the roof. All the food we ordered was delicious and the view was awesome. It was a little chilly outside, but they had heaters available for us to warm up with. As for food, we got the poutine appetizer which was deliciously covered in cheese and gravy.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Black Sheep. I took my girls there for a Saturday brunch celebrating both my birthday and my Soror and I's Founders day. It was a great find. The venue was beautiful, Service top notch and food just simply divine to say the least. I would definitely go ago.

This is a very nice place. I feel it is a little pricey, but given the neighborhood it is in, it is not out of the ordinary.
We had their Sunday fried chicken special for 2 and it was delightful. I am not a collard greens fans, but I ate these and they were the best I've ever had. Black eyed peas were excellent also. Mashed potatoes were fairly ordinary, but the gravy was super. For desert I tried the French Toast bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream. The pudding itself was a little dry , and needed a little more cinnamon and nutmeg, but the cinnamon ice cream was amazing. Skip the pudding and ask for the ice cream.
Service was excellent. My water glass was never empty. The servers were attentive but not over bearing.

We went for New Year's Eve, and there was a good vibe. Our seating was a bit awkward and off to the side. Good waitress. Food was very expensive for what it was--not that different from other menus around town and quality was good but not great. We did like the fried olives as a starter and the wine was good. Not sure I would go back, but the waitress was very nice and upbeat and it seemed to have a great night scene, especially for the upstairs bar.

Three of four in our party left hungry. Very small salmon and accompaniment portions. Widows were dirty. Disappointing experience.

Very nice view - but the catch of the day, snapper- could of been prepared better - Fish was chewy, may have been frozen -

This is one of the best restaurants we have tried in Jacksonville. We were there for a special occasion and the staff treated my fiancé so great because it was his birthday. The food and atmosphere was great. We will definitely be back.
