Good food, attentive service, nice atmosphere. Went for Sunday brunch
and thoroughly enjoyed it. Have been here for brunch before and would
Continue to do so.
The vegetable plate was very creative and delicious. We also enjoyed the creative cocktails and the service was outstanding!
Great staff! Friendly and attentive without being annoying. Just right. Food is excellent and offers wonderful flavors! Great selection of wine and spirits as well.
The food was good as always. The service is wonderful; both your server and the manager will be visiting you often without being interrupting.
I do wish there were a few more choices on the menu. You are very limited in "snacks" which I call appetizers. If you choose, I recommend the Confit Chicken Wings - be prepared to share, these are 6 full wings - uncut.
My favorites on the menu are the Salmon and the Filet. I am not a fan of the macaroni and cheese as it is very "Chili" tasting, as is the shrimp and Grits.
All in all, it's always a nice experience and you feel special when you eat here.
Wife and I took a dear friend for her birthday. The room is very bright, noise-wise, and if there are other parties nearby it can be hard to hear conversation. Service was friendly but a bit hit-and-miss. We looked for our server a couple of times and she was nowhere to be found for several minutes. It's not so big a place, and it charges enough, that this shouldn't happen. They're very proud of their wine list. A bottle that would have been $35-$40 almost anywhere else was $50. The put-ups appetizer was exceptional - bacon marmalade, butterbean hummus, pimento cheese, and a corn-andouille dip, accompanied by house-made bread. There was more than enough for three to share. My companions had the scallops dinner with house salad, and the blackened catfish, and both reported them to be excellent. I had the shrimp and grits and while the shrimp were perfectly cooked, I found them overly salty and the gravy too sweet for my taste. Not a bad record, one clinker out of four orders. We shared the crack pie, comped for our friend's birthday and it was very good, but outshined by the accompanying salted caramel ice cream, which was out of this world.
So good! Everything about our experience was wonderful. We loved the food, wine, and cocktails. Never felt rushed. Well-served but not over-served. Looking forward to the next time!
Wonderful as always. Brought my picky mom here for mothers day and she said it was the best mothers day meal ever.
We met my parents there after church to treat them for Mother's Day. Given their ages (86 & 88) parking and walking downtown was a challenge; and stairs somewhat challenging too. But we like the ambience of Dovetail and the service and food are good.
wonderful brunch to celebrate birthday and Mother's Day!
Delicious food very well presented and served.
Staff were attentive without being intrusive.
Dovetail is excellent! Great food - great service.
Dovetail is one of the best restaurants in Macon. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to celebrate or simply to have a bite of delicious, well-crafted food.
Wow! Chicken Benedict was amazing! Loved the whole place. Definitely will return. Overheard another diner say it was her new favorite place. Mine too!
Perfect brunch with tasty drinks and food.
We started with the put up which consisted of delightful melt in your mouth homemade bread and 4 different dips. My favorite was the pimento cheese but my husband liked the bacon jam.
Our entrees were good but my husband said the scallops were the best he had ever had & I tasted them and he was right!
We ended the night with desert. The best was the chocolate bark!!! It was like a Reece cup on steroids.
Our waiter was well informed and took care of our every need. Our table was for 2 by the window.
Would highly recommend.
Absolutely delicious, healthy, fresh! What could be better?

The best food I have ever eaten. Nothing compares. I'm 40 years old and have eaten in many states and countries, Dovetail is literally the best!
Our food was excellent. The bread served with the 'pick ups' was delicious. Only concern/issue was how long it took for our entrees to be served. Not sure if the waiter had too many tables or if he assumed we wanted to completely finish our salads before they came out but it took over an hour before we were served our entrees.
Food was excellent service given was very professional and friendly
Great experience. We will definitely go again.
Fabulous service. Our server Kylie was attentive without being bothersome. She assisted with selections and was conversational. The appetizer and meals were beautifully presented, fresh, flavorful and well portioned. We'll return to Dovetail the next time we are in Macon.
Excellent as always - celebrating my better halfs' completion of a huge educational milestone and Dovetail is nice enough for a celebratory dinner, but casual enough we felt ok bringing our energetic five year old along. The food was great, the service was great.
Passing through Macon on a Wednesday night and unexpectedly had one of the best dinners in a long time. Every single course was super fresh. Farm Fresh Salad to share: 5/5 stars! Fried Brussel Sprouts: 5/5 stars! For entree, Beef Tenderloin Filet: to die for! Words can not describe. The flavor palette was on point and the beef was legit farm to table tasting so fresh. Our server told us his regulars drive from Atlanta for this filet and highly recommended. For dessert: chocolate peanut butter bark: 5/5 stars! I will find a reason to come back to Macon and without a doubt will be back to visit Dovetail!
Great experience! Only complaint (if you would call it that) was the noise level. A little hard to have a 1 on 1 conv. Other than that I highly recommend
In the greater Macon area, we always choose Dovetail for a special night out. They always remember and welcome us, with extremely friendly service. The staff is highly informed about the food choices and where they are sourced. We always end up learning something along with our excellent food and cocktails.
Best service, drinks and dinner.
Visited from Dallas, Tx and was heading to Dublin, GA. Flew into Atlanta and drove to Dublin. Did a pit stop for dinner and saw this on yelp and open table and made a reservation. This place was awesome. Food and service was awesome. GM was very sweet and made my dad and I feel welcomed. If I ever visit Dublin or Macon, GA again I will come to this place!
Beautiful space, great food and attentive service. We will go again when we are in Macon.
We absolutely love going to Dovetail. Food is amazing, staff are knowledgeable and super friendly. We can't wait to come back.
Easter brunch was absolutely amazing — fantastic and attentive service, and the food was both beautiful in presentation and delicious. The ambience is quiet and romantic. We will definitely be back.
Outstanding menu, flavor and service! Cozy snd sophisticated setting and classy presentation. Loved it!
Salad was wonderful, entree lacked flavor, pizazz and was thus a disappointment. Desserts are very good. The cost was out of line with what I expected and have received in the past when dining at Dovetail.
We were passing through Macon & made a dinner reservation at Dovetail. It was a very pleasant surprise. Excellent food and service. If in the area again we would definitely go back & would highly recommend to anyone paying a visit to Macon.
What a wonderful restaurant!!!! We loved the cheese plate appetizer with three lovely cheese selections. I loved my shrimp and grits and my daughter loved her filet! The hit of dinner were an order of brussel sprouts! Service was impeccable!
Lovely little place. Macon gem. Food was great, service fantastic.
It was a birthday dinner and the whole night was just wonderful!
Awesome! Would highly recommend. The food was amazing. Dining comfortable. Lots of menu options.
Was a bit over priced for what it was. We ordered the cheese board but it was very small tasting portions. The plating could have used some work.
Awesome spot with a great wine/beer list as well as a very impressive menu. Food groups for every person. We loved our dinner and the wine paring was exceptional. Can't wait to return next year.
Was good but was disappointing. Our server never once made eye contact with us nor asked how anything was throughout the dinner. Food was good except for the dinner special of buttermilk fried quail cordon bleu. It was extremely greasy and server was non reactive when we shared our comment. Nice place but the experience could have been so much better.
