I will always stand by Dovetail being the standard of food quality and service in Macon, GA. Always looking forward to our next visit to this fine outfit.
We had a reservation and were seated a few minutes early. The waitress did a great job explaining the menu and provided excellent service. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a very leisurely lunch and did not feel rushed at all. I can't wait to go back!
Nice change of pace. I am used to going to Atlanta for date night with the wife. Traffic of course wasn’t bad at all. Which makes this experience even better. Great crew and food
Fabulous Food. Spectacular Service. The wait staff went above and beyond. Kevin the manager was very attentive, even without an underlying problem. I will definitely eat here again.
We ( our family of six ) celebrated my 75th birthday there. First time, but not our last. I’d like to try several other things on the menu in the future.
Food was excellent atmosphere great but the Service not so good our waitress was not friendly it took 15 min or longer to find the wine I wanted she brought the wrong kind Kevin you are Outanding Excellent personality Very friendly. I just didn’t think our waitress was up to Speed in that environment...
Before making a reservation for our one night in Macon, I studied the menu knowing that I would never be able to make up my mind. As it turned out, I ordered the special of the day, a bar b que chicken atop a polenta type pancake. The service is very attentive and knowledgeable. If you are into the farm to table thing, you will love this place. I was wondering why we didn’t have farm to table when I was growing up, but realized that every thing was farm to table back then. Anyway, this is a very nice setting of a reasonable size. Parking may be difficult. Be prepared to go around the block looking for a parking place. Our waiter was quite gracious and knowing that we were on a road trip, informed us of other establishments that we might like. This restaurant is as quiet as it gets in America. I’ve conclude that Americans are just loud.
I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic evening or a special occasion.
Fantastic! We had a wonderfully experience. Everything that was put on the table was delicious. The food was not only beautiful but really good. I appreciated that so much was locally sourced. The atmosphere of the restaurant was calm and quaint. It was a perfect choice for our anniversary dinner.
Great place and the entire wait staff and GM extremely customer oriented, friendly and there to make your dining experience incredible...and the food is outstanding as well.
I had the catfish which came on a bed of wonderful blue cheese grits with a delicious macque choux and poblano relish. I thought this may well have been the best tasting dish I ever had. My wife had a good but not great burger. We started with the cheese plate which was just right for two people withe 3 cheeses and other accompaniments. The cracked pie for dessert was outstanding. We left very happy and will try to go out of our way to get back to Macon to go here again.
Delicious. Cheese board was a treat. Very interesting mix of flavors in entrees and blueberry cobbler was wonderful. This was our second visit and we will return.
Overall a great restaurant. Excellent food, great bar service, friendly staff. My only “complaint” if I had one was a very small menu. An extra entree or two would have been nice but still, what we had was excellent.
This restaurant came highly recommended, so we were expecting great things and they did not disappoint! Our server was wonderful and every dish we ate was amazing!! We will definitely be back and have already recommended it to everyone we know!
Great experience. Super friendly and helpful waitstaff that was very knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely go back.
Always a favorite and just gets better. Excellent management and wait staff. Kyley was our server this time and was delightful. We like Jade, too!
Excellent dining experience. Dovetail will not disappoint.
We love Dovetail! From the always fresh and interesting vegetable plate, to this week's Chilean Sea Bass, the food and service are always superb!
Dovetail had been recommended by friends and our expectations were exceeded. The service and food were outstanding!
Dovetail is one of my favorite restaurants in Middle Georgia. It contrasts nicely with the rookery downstairs, and the menu is eclectic and fun. Could have more menu options, but overall it’s a great place, especially for people visiting the area
We dined here Saturday night and had a great experience. Good salads and appetizers, I had the beef which was a generous portion and cooked just right. My dinner companion ordered the sea bass which was very tasty.
Restaurant is upstairs without disability access--if you can't get up the stairs--you're out of luck.
Awesome cheese plate.... and the filet mignon was the best I’ve had in Macon.
Great way to celebrate our 5th anniversary! Hands down the best meal I’ve had in Middle Ga in 6 years! Will definitely go again for our next date night! Scallops appetizer was amazing, don’t change a thing!
It just seems to be losing it's overall quality for both food and service. The grits were not cooked properly or seasoned. My guest burger was greasy and fell apart. I asked for salt and pepper from food runner......took 5-10 minutes later for the server to arrive with it. The biscuits were cold, maybe room temperature. Not what I would expect for a brunch item.
Always always ALWAYS amazing amazing AMAZING!!!! I love coming back to this restaurant time and time again to see what's new and enjoy what I love!! Thank you for being consistently THE BEST dining establishment in Macon!!!
Had a good time with great food and excellent service.
Wonderful food and wine!!
Great food and my servers were amazing - very knowledgeable, welcoming, and friendly.
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.
