Black Sheep Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Black Sheep is good, but not great. Lots of eclectic flavors and and foods mixed in interesting and different ways, which is sometimes fun but can also feel forced and confusing, which was my family's most recent experience here. If you like a very unique and different menu with unusual foods and combinations, this restaurant is for you.

Service was quick and always nearby.
Lagunitas IPA is a fav and nice to see on draft.
The wife enjoyed her wine, can't remember which she had.
Shared the House-Cured Steelhead Salmon appetizer, which was quite tasty.
Dinner for me was the Springer Mountain Farm’s Chicken which was a nice mix of flavors.
Wifey had the nightly special, which was a grouper that she enjoyed.
Both of us found our entree's too salty to our liking, but we do not normally use any on our food.
Overall a nice experience.

The food was good. Parts were better than good, but mostly good. I believe it was overpriced for how good it was. If the food was great or amazing, I would definitely be glad to pay for it, as the atmosphere, service, and scene were great. But, again, the food was good. I enjoyed it and will more than likely return and both of us will try different selections.

I had a party of 8 dining for my birthday. The accommodations were wonderful and the staff was very attentive and waited on us flawlessly. Drinks were full and pre-bussing is always a plus! After dinner we had drinks on the rooftop and the bartenders and hostess staff were warm and friendly. I will for sure be back.

For this meal we ate on the rooftop which is one of the best places to eat in Jax. The food is always awesome and inventive. Everyone really needs some of their poutine in their life. The drink are super good also.

Everyone enjoyed their brunch meals and we had two persons with us who had never dined at Black Sheep. I guess the only disappointment was that my omelet was kind of dry. The eggs Benedict was very good according to my family members.

We live in the neighborhood and are frequent customers. We ended up seated at the bar, a choice of our own. We had steak and short ribs, both were excellent. Bar service was outstanding and our experience overall was awesome. We will definitely be back soon.

Tried Black Sheep for a unique dining experience. As this was our first time to this restaurant we really enjoyed ourselves. Food was prepared very well and seasoned to perfection. Used Open Table for reservation to ensure our experience would be pleasant; arrived 5 minutes late due to trying to find a parking spot. Was able to still get seated with no delays. Enjoyed our time there. The only downside to the experience was we were seated next to another table and the two ladies were very loud. Tables are very close together.

First timer. The greeter could have been a little more personable . Our waiter was very informative, his service and attitude was great. The inside atmosphere was nice and elegant . Overall I definitely would return .

Black Sheep Restaurant in the Five Points district of Jacksonville north of the river, has a local farm to table concept, full bar, and a second rooftop bar with a nice view. We went for an early dinner and started with cocktails - a dirty Tito's martini and a House special Rye cocktail with several added flavors. For appetizers, we opted for a beet salad and the daily soup special, a roasted corn bisque. Both were wonderful. Dinners were the Crispy Skin Steelhead, served over charred leeks and fennel with a citrus salad, and a House hamburger loaded with cheddar and bacon. Now well fed - both dinners were cooked perfectly and spot on flavor-wise - so we headed up the elevator to the rooftop bar, enjoyed a couple of House Specialty cocktails as we watched the sun set to our west. We will return.

I was interested in Black Sheep because, its a rooftop Restaurant, However I was told that because I made a Reservation that I could not dine on the roof, which I thought was absurd! If I made a Reservation shouldn't I have made the choice ? Appetizer- fried green tomatoes (dry)
entrée- Steak and fries, Fries (burnt) the wine was good Though, sadly my bill was 90.00 and I still left and went to Hooters because I was still hungry, Totally ruined my romantic Wedding Anniversary.

High expectations based on feedback from friends and published reviews. Must have been an off night. Food arrived cold . Broccoli and rice Caserole was watery and undercooked. Server didn't offer any perspective on the food or uniqueness of the restaurant. Basically had to force information out of her. And , when we told her the meal was not good, she just stared at us. That said, the atmosphere and drinks we great.

Excellent food and service. Catch of the day was delectable. Fried green tomatoes and salted caramel creme brulee were also winners. Good mix of couples, families and even groups. A bit noisy initially, but noise level tapered down a bit as some of the group diners left.

I have been here once before, and the food did not disappoint. We had the sweetbread nuggets, the lamb bacon, and duck confit. They were all wonderful. The desserts weekend good, but not as flavorful as the apps and entrees.
