Exceptional in EVERY way!!! We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely return to experience other dishes on the menu.
We ordered all four small plates for the two of us and the were all delicious!
Delicious food, outstanding wait staff, and great atmosphere!
Never disappoints! Right now is the best overall restaurant in Macon!
Food was scrumptious and service was great as well. Most definitely recommend it!
Food and service was awesome!
We love Dovetail and have never had a poor experience. However, our server on this occasion needed more experienced.
We chose Dovetail to take our out-of-town guests to celebrate our daughter’s birthday, with a mimosa brunch, and l put in the special requests “notes” area, when making the reservation, that we would be there to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. There was no mention, or fanfare, or dessert offering, or even a lackluster birthday greeting from the server...nothing!! It took several attempts of trying to wave her down, too, to order a cup of coffee. She was more consumed with standing over at the bar area, drying glasses to put away, while chitchatting with her coworker! The restaurant was not busy, at all. There were open tables everywhere, so the excuse for non-attentive and lackadaisical waitressing was not evident. We’ll chose more wisely next time that we plan a celebration!
This was our first time at Dovetail. When I made the reservations I added a note that we were celebrating my fiance's birthday. They gave us a great table near the windows which look down onto Cherry St. Our waiter introduced himself and gave us a good idea if what to expect for our experience, wished my fiance a happy birthday and he made sure to explain all of the menu options to us. He said we could pace our food and drinks however we wished, and he made great recommendations based on what we liked. The drinks, the food and our waiter were all fantastic. You can taste the quality of the ingredients, and you can tell the chef takes his time crafting each dish with care and purpose. It was great hearing which local farms and regions the ingredients came from and rounded out the entire experience. Looking forward to our next meal at Dove Tail
my wife and i had the opportunity to try dovetail this weekend and what a treat it was. seated upon arriving (reservation) with no wait. server was friendly and helpful with the menu questions. food was perfectly prepared from the cocktails and appetizer to the main course to the coffee and dessert.
Had a 9 pm reservation arrived early but still had to wait 15+ min to be seated.. Other than that it was a great experience
Tasty ingredients good Shrimps good meat great choice of wines but small portions and expensive period also it is really far too loud some people were obviously drunk
A truly unique restaurant. Combining amazing food and wonderful service - it is a must eat anytime you are in Macon.
1st time for brunch. Love this Macon jewel.
Lovely place, excellent food, service with a smile.
My husband and I were there for our wedding anniversary. The waitress welcomed us with a happy Anniversary and they even gave us dessert on the house! The food was really good, waitress very nice and I think even the manager came over to wish us happy anniversary. Thank you for a memorable evening! We will definitely be back.
Solid as always on all accounts. Will continue to frequent.
Took my wife there for her birthday. The food was great and the staff was excellent. The manager was a true gentle.
So delicious that we reserved the next evening dinner while eating the first evening!!
The restaurant is rustic but very nice. Love the decor. Service was prompt and very friendly. We enjoyed our entrees (Chilean sea bass and wagyu beef). The servings were small but delicious. Dessert was a little disappointing. The milk pie was just too bland. The cracked pie was better but not as great as we'd expected. This is a nice restaurant for a special occasion. A little too pricey for regular visits.
Seared scallops is an absolute must. Melts in your mouth and the flavors beautifully together. Come here every time I’m in Macon.
Service and food were equally excellent. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Emphasis on in season produce and protein options in inventive combinations. Parking readily available on street at night since insitution of parking meters. One of the best options in town and the best downtown.
This place is a hidden jewel. My wife and I went to Dovetail for Sunday Brunch on our 12th Anniversary. The service was some of the best we’ve ever had and the food was spectacular. The French toast was the best I’ve ever tasted, and the shrimp and grits are a great brunch option. Highly recommend the cheese plate for an appetizer. Dovetail also has a great whiskey/bourbon selection, and makes an Old Fashioned by the original recipe.
An incredible birthday brunch for friends. We were very pleased with both the food and service.
Dovetail is the best restaurant in Central/Southern Georgia and continues to impress with creative food and a great spirits portfolio. Would return anytime.
Always great. Crying kid next to us but it was brunch so cant complain too much. Great service and drink pairings. My favorite way to eat is a solo dinner at the bar with a drink. Easy to meet new folks there.
Great dinner at Dovetail. Some favorites from the menu as well as new dishes. Love the latest version of the farm salad. Small plates of scallops and beef were great.
I am a huge fan of Dovetail. I have nothing but great things to say about the staff, service, food quality etc. However, I think its time to change up the brunch menu a little. We come often and it needs a fresh look. I will still come back for dinner and will always recommend it.
A great place to eat when you are in Macon, innovative and fresh dishes and drinks. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu. I wish they were open for lunch as we live 100+ miles away and it is difficult to visit at dinner time.
The best place in the area! You can’t beat the price, ambiance and especially FOOD
Our server was personable and attentive. Delicious brunch offerings. Love that most items offered are locally sourced!
Dovetail is my favorite restaurant in Macon. They are great for special occasions or anytime you just want to eat some unique & delicious food. The chef and cooks know what they are doing and they execute everytime. The kitchen staff should probably all get a raise because they are all just so amazingly skilled. The front of house staff are also very talented. They are very knowledgeable about food and bar service. Jade was our server and she took very good care of us as always. I love Dovetail!
Amazing as usual! Service, food and ambiance top notch!!
Thankful to the Manager and wait staff for making my mother-in-law's 75th birthday dinner and experience wonderful.
Always love their veggies! Also, I really like that they have small plates as well as entrees. Crack pie is AMAZING!!
Dovetail has an amazing menu and it will not disappoint. Cocktails are creative and refreshing.
The crew is very attentive and helpful with suggested selections and our experience was awesome. Worth the drive and the price ( not terribly expensive either) . Love the ability to reserve a table especially through Open Table. Very accommodating as we had to increase our party at last minute.... no problem!
Service great!! Menu is little.. food and drinks were great!!
The main attraction to Dovetail is definitely the food. Its was outstanding! Parking can be tough, it is upstairs (which might be a bit inconvenient for some), it is a small place and the tables are pretty closely packed. Still, the atmosphere was very nice and everything we ate was fantastic. Give it a try!
Very welcoming environment, waitress knew much about the menu and very accommodating!
Everything about Dovetail is noteworthy. The staff, the drinks, the food all right on point. Great flavors, fun conversation, a special night --though I'd be happy to be a regular if we didn't live three hours away.
