We were staying at the Kendall Hotel and were tired from traveling so we decided to have dinner here. As a rule of thumb, hotel restaurants are not always that great. However, the Black Sheep Café was a pleasant surprise. We were seated outside in...More

We chose this restaurant mainly because of its location. It was a short walk down to the river to view the fireworks. It's a nice intimate setting with a small outside patio. The food was good, the portions were perfect. Too often you get more...More

Great place to stay first of all, but the Black Sheep is an excellent lunch or dinner place. Cozy and with a wonderful staff of friendly folks. Their sandwiches and soups are great, but they excel with several salads, the skinny salad, with roasted chicken...More

I highly recommend this restaurant for a hearty lunch in a nice setting. I have not been there for breakfast or dinner. The service is fine and the food is excellent and well presented.

A cafe in a hotel in a renovated firehouse? That's three degrees of separation; one is understandably wary that such a visually pleasing Disney-like conversion will also include, less happily, amusement-park-like food. Fortunately, not so. My companion and I started with the Green Pea Hummus...More

The meal, food, service were all top notch - until the bill arrived. I indulgently ordered an espresso, only to see that it cost FIVE dollars! That's right. A single shot of a brew not more concentrated than regular drip java, just served in a...More
