We loved our meal at the Black Sheep. The menu changes often and although one of our appetizers was a let down, the main courses were delicious and the atmosphere was great. We called ahead by a few hours and didn't have an issue getting...More

Restaurants can't do anything about being fully booked. Trying to book a table and being told "sorry we're full" happens, and it's ok. This place, however, is not ok. The black sheep has been recommended to me two years ago for steaks, and since I'm...More

Our son treated us for dinner at this restaurant and we enjoyed a wonderful evening. The restaurant is unpretentious even though they have much to brag about. The service was excellent. Our waiter was really friendly. The food is so delicious with interesting flavour combinations...More
