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.

The new winter 2017-2018 dinner menu is truly special. It's the best combination of items I've seen in some time. The new presentation for the Berkshire pork chop is perfect for the season. The roasted Brussels sprouts with pair well with the various mains. The newest and most different item, the lamb neck, was a pleasant surprise. It has a great Asian flavor with the five spice. It's served like a stew. Sounds strange but it's perfectly assembled and worth a try.

Once again the service was great. Black Sheep has really worked to keep their service consistent and it shows. It's what keeps us coming back.

What a restaurant! Took my girlfriend here for a much-needed date night. Everything was absolutely perfect. It was December so it was cold but we still sat outside and the lamp warmers kept us warm the entire night. We didn't even notice the cold. The view was absolutely beautiful and the drinks and service were amazing! We would definitely go back here again.

Blacksheep is consistently serving delicious food with great service. Our go to for brunch twice to three times a month. Very clean including spotless bathrooms. A beautiful rooftop bar and seating for good weather dining and drinking.

The menu has several veggie options. I have had most options on the brunch menu and all delicious. One of the few places offering nova salmon and bagels, YUM ! The salads are delicious and the club sandwich is exceptional. The handcrafted cocktails and martinis are delicious and a very good and fairly priced wine list. Attentive and professional service.

Highly recommended. !!

Was in Jax for a meeting, and the place we wanted to go had no seating. Took a chance on Black Sheep — it had been mentioned in Florida Trend, and all 5 of us were impressed. The food was interesting, creative and, even better, delicious. Nice beer and wine menu too. I’ll go back and have already recommended it to others.

We were seated quickly at 6:30 - to be expected as we were early diners. My wife’s cauliflower soup appetizer was excellent. My smoked salmon appetizer was highly recommended and described elaborately on the menu but turned out to be three small squares of ordinary grocery store grade smoked salmon on stale wheat bread spread with cream cheese. We then proceeded to wait for an hour for our main courses. At about 20 minutes into the wait our server (who was very nice) came to apologize for the wait, and then disappeared for the next 40 minutes. I suggested to my wife that we pay our bill for everything up to this point and leave. I got up and was about to speak to the receptionist when our waitress passed the reception desk with two plates. I inquired if these were our dinners and was told yes. I followed the server back to the table. She again apologized, saying that the upstairs roof dining area was completely swamped, causing the delay. My wife and I had checked out the roof when we first arrived but decided that we might be cold, and a breeze was coming up - the point being that although there were people at the roof bar, only a few roof tables were occupied. In addition, The main dining room where we sat, was at best no more than half occupied during our dinner. But back to the food. My wife ordered salmon, which was attractively plated and my wife was pleased. I had ordered Steak Diane. Big mistake. Not sure what cut of meat was used, however it was decent quality except for a broad swath of fat running across the steak. The result was that the meat on one side of the fat was a perfect medium, while the other side was very rare. The meat was covered with Diane sauce which was long on the Dijon mustard but short on cognac. The meat had not been flattened and trimmed of fat as in a proper Steak Diane preparation, (usually presented and cooked at tableside) but the worst offense was that the meat had been cooked separately from the sauce.

The prices keep creeping north. Large Caesar salad with half of a poached egg is now $12. The value is not what it once was.

The food consistency has improved tho today it was just ok.

Fortunately the wait staff is still top notch, especially Jana!

The roof top dining area is amazing when not overly crowded, we were lucky to go on a week night. The small amount of space available on the roof is packed with tables but not uncomfortably so, I would describe the area as cozy. The noise level was a little high but manageable.

The service was fast and the server was always ready to keep our drinks filled despite him obviously being stretched too thin by serving too many tables. The duck was excellent, there is unfortunately too few restaurants in Jacksonville that serve duck so I try to order it when on those rare occasions it is offered.

I must rate the value as average only because of the cost, a dinner for two, dessert, and a drink for each us was around $80. However, the food was very good, the ambiance was amazing, and I will definitely go back for a special occasion or higher end date night.

Rooftop bar/restaurant at sunset was awesome. As a nonsmoker had issue with a group of heavy smokers up wind of me. Restaurant staff wasn't able to move us for anywhere could have smoke I was reminded it was an open air and they can't do anything. Gratefully the smokers left and the rest of the evening enjoyed the great food and views.

My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner and Happy Hour at Black Sheep. Because the weather was outstanding, we chose to sit on the upstairs deck. Zach provided excellent service and we were pleased with everything we ordered - local craft beer, wine, trout spread, pork sandwich, and eggplant entree.
