If you like to imagine you've been transported to a traditional bistro in France, this is the place for you. It's a relatively small space, tables are close together, and the noise of the individual conversations can be a little challenging. (I know...in France one's restaurant dinner conversations are much more subdued than ours, however...) Our dinner that evening took... More

There's not a lot of choice in Vermont so you might as well try this place, I wouldn't choose to go again, but there's not a lot available and I'm sure it's good by country standards but whatever. Oh yeah, bring warm clothing apparently the don't have heat or just choose not to use it. Food is edible, but presented... More

We enjoyed a table overlooking the busy street in the welcoming dining area. The food was delicous and diverse. Waitstaff were friendly and patient providing information on the preparation of the items offered. A wonderful evening get away in a friendly environment W

This restaurant is a keeper. Yes, there are some problems such as the noise level which I am learning is to be expected. Price first: everything is priced the same in the category of within the meal. All appetizers are 8 dollars and all entrees are 22 dollars. Don't remember the price of the desserts. Quality of food and preparation... More

The Black Sheep Bistro is a laid back place with great food and at very reasonable prices. Apple cauliflower bisque is not what I would normally order but it's very good. In fact, everything we had was very good and the prices are very reasonable. Appetizers are a flat $8 and entrees a flat $22. Their wine (by the glass)... More

We used a Jump-on-It deal for reservations at the Black Sheep Bistro in Vergennes, VT and what a pleasant surprise. The Pork Dumplings and Escargot were exquisite. The Brie and Bacon Chicken Breast and Seared Salmon with Lemon Caper Creme were terrific. The mashed potatoes were extra creamy, the green French string beans perfect and the French Fries awesome and... More

We discovered the Black Sheep last year and went back again this year. All appetizers are $8 and all entrees are $22. Entrees all come with their fries and 3 different sauces. Have never had a bad meal here. I got the salmon and it was cooked to perfection. The best part is that the floor is a little uneven...be... More

Dang! The apple cauliflower bisque followed by the bacon & brie stuffed chicken was amazing. All dishes come with delicious skinny fries and whipped mashed potatoes.

We were staying in Charlotte and were looking for somewhere nearby to eat dinner. There were options in Charlotte but this had such good reviews that we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. The food was really excellent - top quality and the service was friendly. The ambience is relaxed, cosy and the restaurant has a... More
