We had a date night on the rooftop at sunset! It was fairly empty and quiet with light music in the background. They were nice enough to turn on a heater for us when it got dark and cooled off! Would highly recommend for a date night!!

Asked for roof top in online reservation only to find when we arrived it would 2 hours - the only reason we went there. No help from mgmt. Made the experience a lousy one especially considering the outrageous prices.

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.

Excellent place for an anniversary dinner. We dined on the roof, which made it even more fun. The weather was perfection, which helped add to the overall experience. Food and service was outstanding.

We ate on the rooftop in at a table in the lounge area. The short ribs were phenomenal, as was the charred zucchini. The weather was perfect for dinner outside. We will go back for sure.

Very much enjoyed our meal and atmosphere but did not enjoy the cocktails. Cosmopolitan was warm and did not enjoy the flavor. Vodka and water tasted like mostly water and the our guest ordered a Manhattan which he did not enjoy. Would have ordered a second round of we had enjoyed our first round.

We enjoyed our dinner on the rooftop which was unfortunately interrupted by a storm, however, the staff was exceptionally helpful and accommodating. We were seated downstairs to complete our evening. It was a great experience and we plan to return soon to taste more of their delicious food and beverage options.

Two of our party of four had the Eggs Benedict and they said they were terrible, the worst they had ever had anywhere. Cheese Whiz like sauce on top and dried out muffins on the bottom. The vegetable hash was ok until trying to eat the beets and carrots which were way undercooked. The starter of ham, sausage, and bacon was good, and enjoyed by all. The coffee was ok. The gelato with cake and blueberry dessert was met with mixed reviews. The cake was very dry, but the gelato and berries were yummy.
We would not recommend brunch at Black Sheep to anyone!

Honestly, the food was only mediocre. The descriptions weren't very descriptive on the menu, which was an issue. Most of the food was under-seasoned as well. Our server was okay, but not very friendly overall. The decor and setting was stunning.

We were dining with friends before heading to a concert at Daily's Downtown. We shared a bottle of house red, a fine everyday wine. We all had a salad to start and we always say BLK SHP has the best Caesar in JAX. Hubby had the vegan Eggplant entree and was quite pleased. I had the Fresh catch and it was perfect. Our friends had the Salmon, and the Salmon Tartare + shoestring fries. We ate everything! So tasty and the service is top notch as always. Love this place.

If you have never been to Black Sheep I highly recommend it. Black Sheep is always at or near the top of our list of places to dine. We took my father in law to lunch to celebrate his birthday. I had the Hot Pastrami Sandwich while my wife and her dad both had the Korean Short Ribs. For apps we had the deviled eggs and the fried olives. As always, the food was excellent. For drinks I had the Bloody Winston followed by a Beermosa. I must admit I was joyously surprised with how yummy the Beermosa was!

Food is always good. This past Sunday the French Onion Soup was some of the best I've ever had. It did need to be to be heated some more. The Lamb bacon was also outstanding, as was the biscuit the waitress nicely brought me.

The service is enthuastic. I'd like to see the servers be sensitive to conversation occurring at the table and not just verbally impose themselves on the table. For example, while we were talking our server came up to the table and spoke over one of our party to get the ordering process initiated. That's rude.

Secondly, the server should serve the dish by approaching the diner from the side and not leaning across 2 customers to serve/remove plates. I had to snatch a glass away from the server's stomach to keep it from turning over - on me.

And third, don't clear dishes while some of us are eating. It presses the unfinished customer to hurry up. And when we're hurried we don't order that next drink or desert, because the waiter needs the table. Why the waiter needs the table on a Sunday night when the restaurant is empty befuddles me. But we finished and left.

Mussels complimented by fries??? Not sure about that one...Wonderful server!
