    Extremely disappointed with our experience at Dovetail. I made a reservation for my best friend's birthday dinner and left a "special requirement" requesting a dessert with a candle via OpenTable. The reservation was made for June 19th 2024 @ 8:15 PM. Despite mentioning the occasion again upon seating, our server provided abysmal service throughout. Not once were we asked if we needed drink refills, and our water was never refilled either. It was disheartening to observe neighboring tables receiving far better service while we were neglected. To top it off, our "special request" for the birthday dessert was completely overlooked; we weren't even offered the dessert menu. The lack of attention to detail and customer care was astounding. Dovetail should be embarrassed by the subpar experience they provided. Management needs to seriously address their service standards to ensure all guests receive equal and satisfactory treatment. I am genuinely shocked at the level of service we received and have never experienced such disregard for customers' expectations before. This visit has left a lasting negative impression, and I cannot recommend Dovetail based on this disappointing experience.

    The restaurant certainly lived up to the hype! Food was 10/10. Service was also amazing (thank you Julia!) and the overall experience was fantastic. Will 💯 be back!

    My experience at this restaurant was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt welcomed and pampered by the food and the service. I highly recommend it!

    We enjoyed our meal at Dovetail. The menu is varied and well priced, servers were very attentive and the location in Yaletown is great. We found it to be very noisy because the place was packed, but it was good to see so many diners enjoying themselves.

    Very pleased! Our server (Nice Blond girl who worked at El Guapo) was fantastic - I was very surprised to learn it was one of her first days. Food was good - We got the butter beef, bang bang and two vodka pastas. Ambiance was nice and the patio was nice albeit a little loud. But what else can be expected of a Friday night. Would 100% recommend.

    We had a table of 8, the food was amazing! Service was good and timely and the drinks were bomb, definitely a must try and we will be going back! It does get quite loud the later it gets but overall a great time and vibe!
