Great food, great service. Can’t wait to go back. Perfect place for our Anniversary
Never had a bad meal at Dovetail. Everything you order is so good. The deviled eggs are to die for and the Cracked pie is slap your momma fantastic.
What a superb place. We drove well out of our way to visit Dovetail based on a family member's recommendation, and it was more than worth it. Definitely order the fresh-made bread and anything with pimento cheese. The wine list is creative, and the decor is great. This is a real gem in the heart of Macon.
My wife had the beef tenderloin and it was REALLY GOOD, tender and juicy!! I had the fried catfish with cheese grits and it was REALLY GOOD, tasted fresh!! My son had the Dovetail Burger with fries and he said it was REALLY GOOD!! We also had the cracked pie for dessert it was REALLY GOOD!! So in a nutshell the meal was AWESOME!! Our waitress was really nice and took GREAT care of us!! I would highly recommend the DOVETAIL to anyone looking for fresh great tasting food!!
A birthday celebration!
Always delicious and impeccable service. Really enjoyed special cocktail tonight!
Excellent chef quality food for the price! Service at the bar was excellent. Warm, cozy ambiance.
We had a lovely dinner, sitting at the bar with the attention of both Seth and Dylan. Food was delicious! Look forward to stopping in again.
Everything was delicious and the service was great!
Very good, but very noisy, it seems the sound spreads a lot throughout all the restaurant.
Food was not good. Crunchy rice in wifes $38 risotto. That was after the my put the wrong order in the first time so that her food came 20 mins later. My meal made me sick till about 1 AM.
Always a great experience at Dovetail, but this meal was exceptionally good! The putups have changed for the better, and the peach burrata salad was so fresh and tasty. Service was outstanding. Can't go wrong with this place.
First time back since the COVID Crisis began. Ironically we had a birthday dinner for my wife on March 11th with friends and as we left the table that night we said this might be our last time out for dinner. Sadly, that became very true.
Dinner Friday was at Dovetail's standard we've come to love. They were doing all the right things for the virus......tables spaced, wait staff with masks, designated entrances and exits. The Farm Fresh salad was particularly good on Friday
Amazing service and delicious food and drinks! This is by far our favorite restaurant. We have never been disappointed! 🥃🥂
Freshly prepared, DELICIOUS food. Original recipes you won't find anywhere else! They offer craft cocktails that compliment every course of the meal. The service is TERRIFIC! Friendly and well prepared. We had a wonderful evening. Highly recommend!
If you are looking for a place in Macon that captures the heart of great food, great service, and an outstanding experience this is the place to go.
We have eaten at Dovetail on a semi-regular basis since 2014. It has been our go to location for a variety of life celebrations - anniversaries, passing professional qualifying exams, our last meal out before having our first child, holidays and so forth. We have never had a meal or a service experience that fell short of their high standard, and we recommend them to people all the time. We are moving to South Georgia and Dovetail is one of the things we will miss most about Middle Georgia. Because of that we headed back to Dovetail for our last date night before the move! Cannot recommend them enough.
Dovetail is very tasty, delicious food in a beautiful but modern setting downtown. It’s in an old historic building that has been renovated. The food is of excelllent quality but a little expensive.
Great place. Highly recommend
As usual, Dovetail had spectacular food, wonderful service, and the perfect atmosphere for our anniversary dinner.
Birthday dinner with several good friends
I love this place. I was traveling for 7 weeks and visited once or twice a week. Thank you Dovetail for taking good care of me. Kimberly.
Unbelievable flavors in every dish
Drive out of your way for this one. We came from Minnneapolis!

I got there late and then my so. Was even more late, and I was seated immediately and served in a very timely manner. The food was unique and delicious. I enjoyed my meal very much.
LOVE this place. Farm to table, delicious, excellent service, reliable excellent experience EVERY TIME!
Great Brunch with the wife on Sunday.
My favorite Macon restaurant. Never disappoints.
Fabulous food as always. The put ups are a must. Nothing disappoints
Dovetail is wonderful. We were there for late night dining, and the crowd was somewhat eclectic. I also think the portions may have gotten smaller for a “large plate”. Overall still a delightful dining experience.
Great spot for drinks and dinner in downtown Macon. Great wait staff.
Another wonderful experience. The food was imaginative, delicious and inexpensive for the quality. Staff were all unfailingly welcoming, knowledgeable and made us feel valued. The manager stopped by our table and truly cared about our experience. The cocktail and spirit selections were outstanding! Love this place!
Truly a gem. Bar knows what they are doing. Excellent food and service was on point.
We had an excellent dinner at Dovetail. Everything was superb.
Amazing as always!
I have been to dovetail before. I chose to come back for my birthday, it was a great night. Bartenders are always awesome, food is always superb will definitely come back again!
Outstanding service and food. Very attentive waitress and staff. Sunday brunch was great and really enjoyed our experience.
Nice, but limited menu, but based on doing a few things very well. Well prepared and served. Generous portions. Very tasty.
Outstanding dinner and service at Dovetail. They continue to produce a great experience. Two of us had bison short rib and it could not have been better. We’ll be back for sure
