“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

Have eaten here twice, both times while on vacation. The staff is great. The perfect combination of knowledge and attentiveness, without hovering. An inventive menu with great wine selections. The food is always enjoyable and never feel rushed.

“Our favorite Restaurant in Corpus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Black Sheep Bistro (or "sheep" as we call it) is fantastic. We eat here, on average, once every two weeks.

GREAT service thanks to wonderful staff and an awesome general manager, Romeo. The food is always spot on. We normally go for their daily special, whatever that happens to be :) If we aren't feeling the special, my go-to meal is the salmon over a bed of sweet potato and apple hash! This hash is soooo gooooood. I will often order a side of it to take home if I don't get the dish it comes with :) The burger is delish if you're feeling something casual. Their desserts are amazing (their pastry chef is VERY talented!) and we will rarely pass on the dessert special if they offer one. Otherwise, the billionare brownie is ridiculous (and shareable) as is the chocolate decadence bar (so rich and decadent!). Their wine list is pretty darn good and they usually offer wine specials.

I recommend making a reservation and heading next door to The Barrel (wine and tapas bar, same owners) beforehand for an app and a glass or wine or beer before dinner.

“Nice Little Local Establishment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

No matter where we are, we try try try to choose a mom and pop "no name" local establishment whether it be for eating or a bar. We stayed at the "Mayan Princess" (see other review) in Port A and ate here. This little place was very quaint even though it was located in a small strip mall! It had a neat back story and the food was great. I had the seafood risotto which was full of seafood but was topped with salmon instead of mahi which that's ok because I love salmon! The risotto was rich with butter and saffron. Only drawback (to be expected) a little crunchy from ?sand? in the mussels or clams. Hubby had the diver scallop special which was equally good. We would definitely go back here if we are in the area again.

“excellent food - was chased out at closing time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Had not been here before. Called and made reservation. When we got there, the table was waiting. Says it is moderately priced. Actually 3-4 spoons ($40 for a steak). Food was excellent, hot and tasty. Service was good to ok. We went near the end of the evening. Ordered dessert about 9.45pm. Received check BEFORE dessert. By 10pm, we were the only customers, everyone else had been chased out. When they say they close at 10pm, they don't mean they will stop serving at that time, they mean that they will expect you out the door at that time. Unusual, discourteous and off-putting. I hope they read this and pay attention. Otherwise it is a nice place to eat, if a bit pricier than you expect.

“awesome everytime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We frequent this restaurant and we always have a great meal. If the special is not what we are in the mood for then we go with the Little Joe or one of the other menu items. They always have good wine specials, adequate beer selection, and good desserts. The wait staff is always pleasant and appropriately attentive. The price is about right for the island and the quality of fresh ingredients. The manager is welcoming and helpful with wine and getting you seated promptly.
