Very good food a much different experience than almost any other restaurant. They take food to another level
Dovetail is always my go-to choice for dinner when I don’t have kids in tow. As usual, it did not disappoint!
-Best quality food in Macon
-Most unique menu
-Consistently superior service
From start to finish, this was a WONDERFUL experience! We will be back!
Super cool space with so much creative and fun goodness on the menu.
Had to wait for about 30 minutes after being sat to be waited on. Other than that the food was amazing!
The salt and vinegar boiled peanuts are great as was the filet and pork chop. Service was excellent.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere - first class
Best restaurant in Macon
What an awesome find! Highly recommend! Service great, food amazing. Blackened catfish and blue cheese grits to die for.
Always love the Dovetail! Great atmosphere and service.
Wonderful meal the duck croquettes were amazing!
As always the food was amazing!! Kevin and his team delivered a spectacular dinner evening for us. We are made to feel welcome the moment we arrive, and treated like family for the entire evening. Thank you DoveTail!!!
My first time and definitely not my last. The food,drinks,and service over the top!
Exceptional in EVERY way!!! We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely return to experience other dishes on the menu.
We ordered all four small plates for the two of us and the were all delicious!
Delicious food, outstanding wait staff, and great atmosphere!
Never disappoints! Right now is the best overall restaurant in Macon!
Food was scrumptious and service was great as well. Most definitely recommend it!
Food and service was awesome!
We love Dovetail and have never had a poor experience. However, our server on this occasion needed more experienced.
We chose Dovetail to take our out-of-town guests to celebrate our daughter’s birthday, with a mimosa brunch, and l put in the special requests “notes” area, when making the reservation, that we would be there to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. There was no mention, or fanfare, or dessert offering, or even a lackluster birthday greeting from the server...nothing!! It took several attempts of trying to wave her down, too, to order a cup of coffee. She was more consumed with standing over at the bar area, drying glasses to put away, while chitchatting with her coworker! The restaurant was not busy, at all. There were open tables everywhere, so the excuse for non-attentive and lackadaisical waitressing was not evident. We’ll chose more wisely next time that we plan a celebration!
This was our first time at Dovetail. When I made the reservations I added a note that we were celebrating my fiance's birthday. They gave us a great table near the windows which look down onto Cherry St. Our waiter introduced himself and gave us a good idea if what to expect for our experience, wished my fiance a happy birthday and he made sure to explain all of the menu options to us. He said we could pace our food and drinks however we wished, and he made great recommendations based on what we liked. The drinks, the food and our waiter were all fantastic. You can taste the quality of the ingredients, and you can tell the chef takes his time crafting each dish with care and purpose. It was great hearing which local farms and regions the ingredients came from and rounded out the entire experience. Looking forward to our next meal at Dove Tail
my wife and i had the opportunity to try dovetail this weekend and what a treat it was. seated upon arriving (reservation) with no wait. server was friendly and helpful with the menu questions. food was perfectly prepared from the cocktails and appetizer to the main course to the coffee and dessert.
Had a 9 pm reservation arrived early but still had to wait 15+ min to be seated.. Other than that it was a great experience
Tasty ingredients good Shrimps good meat great choice of wines but small portions and expensive period also it is really far too loud some people were obviously drunk
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.
One of our absolute favorites in Macon, a must try! Perfect for foodies looking to enjoy local food. Just try the put-ups! Perfect appetizer with the most delicious bread. A favorite!
Dovetail is the best restaurant in Central/Southern Georgia and continues to impress with creative food and a great spirits portfolio. Would return anytime.
