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.
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.
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
