Very good, but very noisy, it seems the sound spreads a lot throughout all the restaurant.

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

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.

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.

Dovetail remains one of our favorite restaurants in Macon. Too often in many farm-to-table restaurants, chefs try to create dishes try to be too creative without really knowing which ingredients really go together and which don't. The offerings at Dovetail, however, are always perfectly conceived--delightful combinations. In addition, service is superb! I can't wait to return.
