Everything was great except that service was a little slow. It wasn't very crowded so I felt the wait for the food was a little long. Especially for something as simple as a sausage omelet. I enjoyed it though and will go back again.

My only compliant is that the crème brulee tastes more like some sort of pudding rather than a brulee.

Even though the food was delicious the cost doesn’t make sense with the portion amounts and quality of service.

It was good, not great. I got the impression that they were trying to be something they weren't. I still enjoyed myself. Will definitely recommend to others, may go back myself.

My first visit to Black Sheep. Great location in RIverside. I took a friend to lunch for her birthday. I made a res in advance on Open Table and mentioned that it was a birthday lunch. I also mentioned it to the server. You would think they would stick a candle in a small piece of pastry and bring it out. Nothing... The deviled eggs were very mediocre. My wedge salad was average. I've had better Bloody Marys too.

Experience didn’t meet the hype. Thought the food was pretty average in flavor. Perhaps that’s my wallet talking. Don’t bother asking for the free bread. It’s stale. I think they could use some sort of faucet filter and ice for the fresh city tap water they serve. I do think they’re really trying and putting in the effort to be amazing in every aspect though. It’s just when you sink your teeth in you think ‘Oh. I was bamboozled’.

Ambiance and rooftop was great but service was terrible. We waited 30 minutes for an appetizer and 30 more minutes for our entree. Our entire experience was over 2.5 hours and it was ridiculous. We will not be returning

Friendly, efficient staff. Food very good but menu not expansive. Service good. Same problem that many restaurants have with reservations whereby they give 4 tops to only 3 or 4 folks not to two even if you arrive early. All computer generated to maximize seats. Not like old says. Tough to be loyal to a restaurant when they treat you like a number.

Came to Jacksonville for a concert with my mother and had dinner here on the rooftop beforehand. What a fantastic place! Food was beyond amazing, (Get the fried olives for your app, Totally worth it) dinner was fresh and delicious and the atmosphere and view were delightful!

$12 for a Caesar salad is a lot of money and the salad I received was not a $12 salad. I ordered the grilled country ham and cheese sandwich. This is served with an egg on top so you can’t really pick it up like a sandwich. The bread was not toasted/grilled - there was no color to it and the texture was of regular bread, not bread that had been grilled or toasted - and was really nothing special as far as the quality of the bread (I believe they make it in house but it didn’t seem any different than food service bread). The cheese was not melted, the ham was lukewarm at best. The server removed it from the bill but no one from management or the kitchen spoke to me.

Black Sheep is one of my favorite restaurants. I bring all my friends who visit me here. Recently I brought my sister and my daughters. We had excellent cocktails and food. Although it is a bit expensive it is worth every penny.

Waiter was very unsure about both food and drinks menu. Duck breast bland. Sauce okay. More of a hipster hangout than a high end restaurant.
