We absolutely loved this restaurant. Best meal we have had in awhile. My salmon was perfect. The decor was nice and made us feel like we were in a north side Chicago hip restaurant. Our server was wonderful. The owner came to our table to thank us for coming in. What a delightful dining experience. I will definitely be back!

We went to brunch for Mother's day, which was basically a set menu (we thought it was going to be a buffet). It was FABULOUS. Choice of three appetizers to share, the entree, and then one dessert each. We ordered the drink special - Old Fashioned, which was really really good. Fresh ingredients, subtle. I would come back here anytime... More

A quaint fine dinning experience. The interior reminded us of the cute neighborhood restaurants we find in our home town of Chicago; we felt very much at home in this renovated brick wall, hardwood floor interior. We ordered salmon which was moist, tender and flavorful. Their chicken and beef selections were outstanding as well. The menu was pleasantly varied. Drinks... More

Kinda on the fence here folks... Kinda rough around the edges but I'm sure they will pull it all together - Food/Service was a bit underrated for my taste, I will however, certainly give it another go.

Outstanding service and great original food! Large dinner parties are always challenging for a restaurant but The Black Sheep was great. Our server did an awesome job and the owner was kind and gracious.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. We went on a Monday afternoon around 12:30. There were two other tables in the restaurant. One of those tables must have been sampling dishes for a reception or some other event because the waitress and chef kept coming out with dishes. The choices were very pricey for lunch. My fried ordered... More

Black Sheep is a very good restaurant featuring locally sourced foods. It is a favorite place for me to take friends out for good food and conversation. I like the classy atmosphere too.

This was our second visit to the Black Sheep. We laud the owner’s efforts to support local business and agriculture. Although the menu is creative, it is very limited and may not appeal to everyone, especially to those whose diets exclude spicy foods, tomatoes, and chocolate. On the other hand, there is a range of prices to fit everyone’s budget,... More

Chef Tyler - "I've called it The Black Sheep. We are different and our menu is different. We work with local farmers and producers to bring in local and fresh wine, meats, cheeses, and produce, whenever possible. We go to the farms to see how the animals are cared for and the land is protected. We purchase just enough to keep fresh products rather than fill freezers. We are passionate about food."
