Great foodFood was a little on the expensive side, but absolutely fabulous. Look forward to going again. They try to source everything as locally as possible. Most of it from around Georgia or the southeast. There are very few nice upscale places in middle Georgia that live up to the price service and food wise. This is definitely one of them.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceThe the food and service were top notch, i dug the ambiance except for the music but it wasn't that big a deal. For anyone exceptionally hungry though, I have to recommend getting an appetizer and/or first course to go with your entree though as the sizes of everything seemed to be a little on the small size for someone with a large appetite. Everything was cooked and tasted exceptional, however. I also have to recommend Matt as a server, he did a great job.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMsecond chanceWhile the food quality is very good, their largest issue is in the kitchen. 2 out of 4 entrees were almost cold.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant ExperienceDovetail is a local Macon restaurant with a unique menu and excellent service. This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Reservations are a must.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We went for our anniversary, and had a wonderful time. Service was very good, and the restaurant atmosphere was very pleasant.
The food was absolutely delicious! The put-ups (appetizer) were great. Decided to try several of the small plates, instead of getting entrees. I'd definitely recommend the veal, the scallops, and the ham fritters. (The crab tower, not so much.) Can't wait until the next special occasion comes around; we'll definitely want to return!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, everything wasOnce again, everything was absolutely delicious!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice (relatively) new diningA nice (relatively) new dining option in Macon.

Fresh, flavorful food, and friendly, knowledgeable staff.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food!We've been to Dovetail four times, including their New Year's Eve Price Fixe menu, and every time we go the food is outstanding. It is southern-inspired with a "foodie" flair. We consider ourselves very adventurous and appreciative eaters, and we are amazed that a restaurant with an advanced palate such as this exists in Macon. There are two drawbacks: 1) We valeted our car (which is complimentary), but our most recent time, the valet driver had left before we had. It took us half an hour to track down our keys. 2) It's next to impossible to get someone from Dovetail on the phone, and when you do, they seem distracted. We spoke to the owner(s) once and they lost our reservation. Make your reservations on Opentable!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit and impressedSecond visit and impressed once again. Two in our group had not been to Dovetail and both stated they would definately return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything from beginningEverything from beginning to end was fantastic! Each and every item we ordered was surprising and perfection. Timothy is a great server.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the DovetailExcellent meal at Dovetail. We stuck with apps and small plates as first-timers who wanted to sample the menu. The ham fritters and oysters were delicious. The outstanding small plate was the veal tenderloin but we really enjoyed the duck, ribs and scallops as well. Great place for cocktails and the whiskey and bourbon flights were savored by all. The Breckenridge bourbon was especially good.
The service was excellent. Out waiter gave us good advise on choices and was very knowledgeable about the wine and spirit list. The ambiance was very nice and the restaurant filled up but still felt intimate. Dovetail food is locally sourced and the restaurant is a fine addition to the renewed Macon downtown scene. We'll go back soon.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
