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.
My wife and I chose to celebrate our 5th Anniversary by dining at Dovetail and were very impressed. Great service, wonder atmosphere, and excellent food and cocktails all at a good price. I recommend Dovetail for anyone looking for a quality, upscale establishment in Macon. We will definitely be back.
Great find in Macon. Food fresh and delicious! Tasteful decor and quiet enough to hold a conversation.
Never disappoints! I love how the menu options change from season to season, and the variety of options is fantastic. Definitely get the put-ups as an appetizer - the bacon jam is incredible! Drinks, apps, entrees, and desserts, this place has it all!
After church brunch. Always good. Great service. Had the steak and eggs - both were cooked perfectly. Only complaint is that is so popular that you have to make reservations well in advance and I always forget
Fantastic experience, would recommend the Dovetail to anyone looking for a fine dining evening. Looking forward to the next special occasion for an excuse to go!
Drinks: Secondary Export- excellent taste. Nice sipping drink. My friend had the Ultraviolet, which he stated was average. For appetizer, we had the Put ups- delicious tasting spreads with warm bread. Shared a small plate of scallops with risotto. Great choice. For dinner, I had the Sea Bass and my friend had the tenderloin, which we both enjoyed our meals. Finished with cracked pie and the special fig tart, which we both enjoyed. Great ambiance!! Highly recommend Dovetail.
Nothing against Dovetail....just not my cup of tea. I’m pretty sure I won’t be returning.
Our second visit was great, just like the first. We plan to go back next time in Macon.
Best Southern Cuisine with the best Southern Hospitality! Highly recommend!
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!
I had a resorvation here but arrived late. Even though the kitchen was closing they still sat us and were so awesome with their service. Thank you for such a great meal.
